Unreal: Obamas' Dog Arrives on Own Flight for Martha's Vineyard Vacation
Townhall.com ^ | August 12, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

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.

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.
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.

Keep working America!

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

Not the dogs fault, it’s the idiots he belongs to who did it. Poor dog is probably embarrassed.

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.

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.

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 ..

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

“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.

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!

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

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.

This is not AF1, but it shows the regard President Ford had for Liberty. He used to get up at midnight to walk Liberty if she wanted it. He had no "Reggie" to look after the needs of his dog. He cared for her himself.

Roosevelt supposedly sent a destroyer to pick up his dog. Apparently that’s what Democrat presidents think the military is for.
