Glad to see the U.S. government is fiscally well off enough to fly in the Obama's dog for a vacation in Maine on it's own jet.

White House wanderers tour Acadia


Earlier Friday, the Obamas were greeted by Gov. John Baldacci and U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, D-2nd District, when they arrived in Trenton about 12:25 p.m.

The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black capris, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president's personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.


Wonder how Bo's carbon footprint compares to a regular American family's pet?

Meh, Obama is merely continuing the tradition of the first Commie president FDR who once sent a US Navy destroyer to pick up his pet dog. This occurred during the middle of WWII when there was a great demand for destroyers to serve as escorts for cross Atlantic convoys.

Was this the dog's own jet? Or was it a jet for the support staff and people who need to arrive before the President, that the dog rode on also?

I think it is much deeper than that. The aide that went with Bo the dog was named Reggie Love. Now Bo is short for Boregard which is the deep south version of Buddy or Bo could phonetically mean Beau (boyfriend). So what we end up with is Buddy and Reggie Love on airplane together. If you drop the Reggie and move the Buddy over, you get known other than Buddy Love.

Now stay with me. Buddly Love was a character played by Eddie Murphy. Eddie Murphy keeps getting busted for picking up transvestite prostitutes.

Do you see where this is going?

That's one of the finest spin-jobs I've seen in a long time.
Thank you! If you're ever in town I'll buy you a cold one...

As for Bo - I'm sure he was just riding with aids and the whole thing is being blown out of proportion...

Geesh...

peace

Sounds great.
Where you from?
I am a cheap date so I will be happy with a dollar draft at the local bar. We can get drunk and talk crazy ATS war stories.

This raises questions both funny and no so funny. The funny question is this: Was the call sign of the plane carrying the presidents dog on it called Air Woof one?
But in all serious, when you consider the amount of money it takes to fly these jets, combined with the actual amount of fuel, and the carbon footprint, the question still must be asked, why did they not all travel on one airplane? After all Air Force one is a boeing 747, I am sure there was plenty of room, for the President, his family, all of the staff and aids, and one dog.

Anytime the President goes anywhere there is a team that goes a. of time to make sure everything is up to speed for his arrival.

Just so happens that this advance team included a dog.

Ohhhhhh man thats great. You were in another thread too I though was pretty "enlightening" lol.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure the aircraft if for support staff, I assume (oh no!) that a few people had to get there anyways and they decided beforehand to put the dog on that plane.

The dog was probably with the advance team of secret service. I really don't think they would be quite so flagrant as to fly the dog solo at taxpayer expense.

The dog took a seperate jet, as not to soil air force 1. Wow. What arrogance. So if you're a low income worker, one of his supporters, know that he just spent more than you earn in a year because they didn't want any dog hair on their plane. Not that you should be concerned, because if you voted for Obama, you probably don't pay taxes anyway. I will remember this before writing a check on April 15, as I do pay taxes. Nice.

I think it should be against the law for the president to have a security detail.

If the president is doing his job, no one would want to kill him.

The president should have no more power than the common man.

Since no one wants to kill the common man for no good reason, it stands to reason such a law would ensure the powers of the president are extremely limited.

There's no better way to limit the power of the presidency than to take away his toys and security details.

It used to be presidents accepted public visitors in their office regularly. We should return to that.

Doesn't matter how great a President does his job, there will always be some people who will not like him.

To think that just because someone is a great President nobody will want to kill him is absurd. It is also absurd to think nobody wants to kill the common man for no good reason. Turn on your local news and you will find someone who has been killed for their car, because he bumped into the wrong person by accident, at home during a robbery or been killed for a gang initiation.

You might want to rethink your post a little bit.

Nobody has mentioned the Air Force plane that had to fly all the secret service vehicles and the presidential SUV. Why couldn't all the support dudes and the doggy ride on that one? [color=#FF6600]This plane ALWAYS flies a. of the President. He obviously cannot rent cars for everyone at the airport.

What you people aren't considering is that the JET is actually OWNED by the DOG, and that the DOG is the PILOT!!!
