    Re: Obama Plans 20-day, $4 million Vacation

    You SERIOUSLY think that POTUS is just going to lie on the beach sipping a cold one for that time? Really man? OMG.

    The problem with the alarmists on this thread is that they are equating a POTUS vacation with the kind we take. MYOPIA. He is the leader of the free world, he has things to do. My guess is that most presidents who take long vacations (I doubt this one is actually 20 days), probably get about 72 hours total of real relaxation.

    The alarmists need a reality check.

    BS!! G. W. Bush nor the Bush family owns, or owned a private jet.

    Generally, AF1 landed in Waco and Bush would take M1 to the ranch.

    On occasion, AF1 has landed at Robert Gray Army Airfield, which is located at Ft. Hood.

    Presidents do, on occasion, take smaller, government owned aircraft (any aircraft that carries the president is officially AF1) to locations if the most logical choice of airports are too small to accommodate the president’s usual 747.

    Crawford is NOT one of those locations.

    That was probably because he was a passenger, much like being on a roller coaster.

    Perhaps, if he had stayed on duty as a 'Weekend Warriors' maybe he could have 'driven' that jet....LOL!!!

    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.
    Just quoting the link on the OP you obviously didn't read.

    "Obama’s vacations are more expensive than those of previous presidents because of the huge costs to fly Air Foce One and an accompanying cargo plane for nine hours or so to Hawaii."

    Right, Bush and Reagan went home not tpo their birth place which in obama's case just happens to be the most expensive vacation he could take. Most people go home for Christmas not to Hawaii.

    "President Obama is reportedly scheduled to be vacationing in Hawaii on January 2, the date billions in spending cuts – and untold consequences for the economy – will kick in if a deal is not reached on the “fiscal cliff.”According to the Hawaii Reporter, residents who live in the area of Oahu where Obama and his family vacation have been told that the usual restrictions on their movements during an Obama stay will be in place for 21 days, from December 17 through January 6"
