Posted on 08/12/2013 6:49:45 AM PDT by Kaslin
President Obama is officially on vacation with his family in Martha's Vineyard but apparently, there just wasn't enough room on 4,000 square feet of Air Force One for their dog Bo. Naturally, the dog was put on a separate flight.
Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft.According to the Government Accountability Office, it costs $11,000 per hour to fly an Osprey. The Osprey is typically used for military operations, not as a presidential dog taxi.
Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
In the air he swapped his suit and tie for khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves, while Mrs Obama wore a yellow-and-white summer dress.
Bo, the president's Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.
It was the first time the Ospreys have been taken on holiday by a US president.
I’ve always admired the integrity of the liberals who decry military spending.
No no no... the answer to this is more obvious
Muslims don’t like dogs.
I bet bacon is not allowed on the Presidential plane either
Because is license yet..............
This is a shot at the military.
Obama and his minions make me puke.
This story should be entitled “Obama gives one finger salute to America”.... because that’s all this is about. What a vile POS.
Liberals have integrity? Wow that’s a surprise
Not the dogs fault, it’s the idiots he belongs to who did it. Poor dog is probably embarrassed.
Because he doesn't have his license yet............
The whole point is to enrage one’s enemies.
If they complain, they can be ridiculed for their “partisanship” or their belief in “conspiracies.”
More disgusting is how every damn fool has a PWD now. And Hallmark had whole racks of little BOs/PWDs. No one knew WTH they were before Uhbama decided to get this prop. Now instead of just at the dog show I see them at least every month with some liberal dork.
Obama knows how that will make some people want to hate that dog.
He closed off “his” White House due to the cuts forced by sequestration then turns around and spends gratuitously without concern to fly his dog out to his Vacation on an Osprey.
While the country is suffering thru a horrific ecenomic struggle.
Bears repeating, often and loudly.
That is exactly what this is.
Degrading and embarrassing the military at every possible chance. Just like when Hillary! had some uniformed military officers serving hors doeuvres for some DNC party members............
The American people won’t mind. They believe that Obama works “so hard” that he deserves vacations ad nauseum.
This is not the 1st time Bo has traveled alone..
I dont think the dog has ever travel WITH Barry..or the family..
On another thread a while ago someone said it was because dogs were banned for Moslems ..
Unreal is that the HOR doesn’t curtail the budget for Obama living expenses.
That was my thought too. You never see any pictures of that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave with the dog, and if you do then you know they are staged for photops
The American people can’t understand such waste.
“Muslims don’t like dogs”. Just what I was going to say. I am surprised he even let his children get a dog. I have an idea that he was just trying to make himself look more main stream American.
HA! In your face all you “furloughed” government employees!
That is true. I should not blame the dog
you and I have the same hunch
This is just another Massiah “In your face, Tea Party” moment.
$11,000 per hour to operate an Osprey.
How other presidents have behaved in office.
The left is doing everything they can to provoke a response from Americans,
so they can fulfill their ultimate dream of using the power of the state to exterminate their political enemies.
PPOS tells the disabled veterans in a speech on Friday that their benefits are in jeopardy due to sequestration? And then he, the Mooch and the rest of the royal family leave for yet another multi-million dollar vacay. Focused like a laser uh huh!
Because his private rail car was in the shop.
And yet I’m supposed to be upset about some stupid rodeo clown.
I still don’t know what a “PDW|” is. Care to enlighten me?
Frankly I was upset at the clown...it should have been the real person being chased by the bull.
This is what you can do when you are Trayvon’s..(”No Limit Nigga”)..... dad.
How long till Obama shows us a gold grill?
I watched Tosh.0 once where he was goofing at some black guy singing a song in the shower called “Chocolate Rain” to beat the band. He even brought him in for a show and they put together a professionally produced spoof of it.
I am now convinced that this type of weird, egregious, flamboyant excess, is typical of some goofballs of Obama-kind in flaunting it because they can. They, he, know(s) you can’t do squat about it - he’s just laffing it off in the $7.6 million dollar crib he gots for bacation. His people don’t care because they’re getting theirs (ObamaPhones, Section 8, EITC, TANF, SNAP, WICs et al) and because it pisses us off.
I don’t know why that POS doesn’t let him family dog travel with him but he doesn’t .
HOWEVER in thos ONE case only I am betting the osprey was already headed that way with equipment and perhaps more personnel so they just decied to let someone else take care of the dog.
This is a ignorant family who is smart on one level. They know how to cheat the taxpayer.
I can’t wait for Jan 21 2017
BUT in this ONE case it is not the POS )dumbo sending a helo for the dog alone
Louis XIV comes to mind
They took him up there in a V-22 Osprey STOL aircraft. The Marines have to fly in them a lot from what I understand.
I wonder what a Marine that had to ride one into battle thinks of this.
You'd ride separately too if you thought the President considered you 'food'.
hey, would you want to fly with them?
How about arrogant, lacy, lying, vile pos?
The Dog is the only one of the bunch worthy of any respect.
That socialist wealth redistribution plan is working out nicely
for America's Homo-Clown-King and the Big-Butt-Moocher.
Roosevelt supposedly sent a destroyer to pick up his dog. Apparently that’s what Democrat presidents think the military is for.
