WASHINGTON — President Obama has slammed high-flying executives traveling in cushy jets at a time of economic turmoil.

Give the dumbass a set of combat boots and call them “Army One.” It’s cheaper and he could use the exercise anyway.

There is something ironic about a government employee, living in a tax payer funded mansion, flying on a taxpayer funded private 747, telling others they are living too lavishly. This is marxism at its best.

What would a narcissist do? He will build tributes to himself while the rest of the country crashes due to illogical democRAT ideas.

Just go and reinstate the program already, 0bama.

As much as I do no think you are the 0ne who should be in the White House, we live in dangerous times where the POTUS is a target.

The office — and not the man — deserves to be protected the best way possible.

missed that one. What?

Maybe not your fault. I just finished dinner with 3 blonde's and a hair or two may have fallen into my soup.

And don't start with “Oh I'm gonna gag” stuff. These women are beautiful but they are definitely blonde.
