Bo's vacation

HOW CAN AMERICA BE SO BLIND?

I guess since they had to swallow their pride and use the Gulfstream there just wasn't enough room for the dog and one other person.

Did you know the Pres. flew BO, the dog, in on a separate smaller jet to Maine for their vacation???? Wonder if that sets well with all the unemployed, hurting, US citizens who can't afford food, but we can pay for this. The above is true. I Goggled "Bo the dog flying to Maine " and got 76,700 references verifying this. One of them follows:

Michelle Malkin: Just Plane Crazy: Obama's Dog Flies to Vacation on Separate Jet

Doug Powers: The Obama's arrived at their vacation spot in Maine , and the local paper, the Morning Sentinel, described the scene:

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 caprice, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents. Baldacci and his wife, Karen, presented the family with gift bags full of Maine-made goodies, including baskets made by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, popcorn from Little Lad’s Bakery in East Corinth, iconic L.L. Bean bags, University of Maine ice hockey hats, and an assortment of other Maine foods and books.

Karen Baldacci said the bags for Malia and Sasha contained one loon toy and one chickadee toy that sound their natural calls. Arriving in a small jet before the Obama's 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 presidents€™s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.

The president who said the rest of us are going to have to sacrifice to get out of these hard economic times let his dog fly on his own plane? Not enough room on Air Force One (a Gulfstream on this trip) for a Portuguese water dog and Reggie Love?

My dog saw this story and wants his own jet now, too. Thanks Obama.

OH, by the way, Mr. Love, Bo's handler, is paid $102,000.00 a year to take care of him.

What side of the ballot will you mark in November?

Well, the Snopes article did say that Bo flew in a different airplane, but because the airport was too small to accomodate the plane Obama used.
So, it actually DID happen in a way ... although it is listed as "false" .... even though it DID happen.:duh::confused:

PS. I am glad FDR's dog wasn't left behind. :ek::roll:

It was False because though the dog flew on a separate flight it wasn't a "Dog only" flight. It was a flight carrying staffers that would have gone dog or no dog.

We have stronger arguments when we stick to facts and avoid spin.

Best,

Yes, I said it was marked false.
But I don't care what their excuse is; this country is still gone to the dogs!!!:sm_angel::rolleyes:

As far as spin is concerned, When Obama stops his "spin" ..... I will stop making lame excuses for our side. :poke::)

If Meathead Michelle had only one or two "staffers" like the other first ladies had there wouldn't have been a need for the second plane....

I agree with you TommyGun....
