The White House spent $2,952,278 in flight expenses this year for two trips President Barack Obama took on which he spent a large chunk of his time playing golf.

Ha! I racked up $75 in fuel costs to fly my Piper Comanche one hour to play golf with my son.
I think I will bill congress if that is the trend now for golf expenses.
sounds like he, and his beard, have benefitted personally from perks on the job.
did he claim the financial cost of these benefits as income?
Surely he could have done this without benefit of AF1 (or any other plane). And, it would have been far less expensive.
