    Don't like a president visiting his place of birth, don't vote for someone from Hawaii. Funny though, I can't seem to find any posts from you complaining about GOP president travels and costs, I wonder why that is?
    because they were special and its not the same thing at all.

    Seriously, it's hilarious watching many people think the president should just stay in the white house like that doesn't incur costs in itself.
    Maybe he equates the PRez taking a trip with him taking one. After all they are both citizens. right?

    Maybe they have room for an such a high caliber expert on US Presidential behavior.
    And I hear they have really interesting gun laws there too.

    And you don't think he doesn't How?

    Daily briefings, meetings (internet), papers to work on and sign. I know of no president not even Johnson who did not work on their vacations

    And how is this different from Congress, SCOTUS or any other high ranking government official. You think they actually take fact finding visits? or junkits? uh HUH.

That's right TWO jets instead of the one that every other president has used. Apparently obama needs a special cargo jet for his toys. He lives it up while America is "in the worst economy since the great depression", some leader huh. You'd think the man would show a little restraint in his spending. DISGUSTING!
    Actually POTUS has 4. Two for him ready at all times and 2 for VPOTUS. If you looked into it you would know that. They are military planes not his. The Air force pays for and maintains them. They are inspected on a regular basis by Air Police and Secret Service.

    The second jet you mentioned is for the rest of his staff and security personal and up front people. Absolutely nothing new there. I really don't know why you post this stuff when it can be so easily proven wrong.

    BTW there are also 2 C-30 transport planes that go on ahead of him with cars and equipment and other personnel.

    If you ever saw a Prez land at an airport you would see about 4 planes and about 2 or more local helicopters.

    I have seen the Prez land at Green Bay and Milwaukee and in Grand Rapids. (mostly Clinton and Bush) and their plane was never lonely.

Those were cheap vacations where the pres went home not to some high priced vacation resort.
    Reagan was from Illinois. Tell me i'm wrong. Obama was born in Hawaii. Bush one was born in Maine.
