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.
