    Re: What Sequester? First dog Bo is airlifted to Obama holiday home

    Yep I think Bush spent too much time on his ranch, but at least being on the ranch saved us some money, and I don't recall him flying his dog to his vacation separately?

    What I don't get is IF you are outraged about Bush's time on the ranch then why aren't you outraged about this man 100 + golf outings, countless vacations, expensive weekends, extraordinary diet requirements and lavish white house guest parties featuring main line talent.? If you were at all bothered by Bush's lengthy trips to Texas (as I was) then you should be extremely bothered by this losers demand we sacrifice while he lives like a KING.

    But got to love the ultra biased partisan US media and American right on this subject, making it sound like they air lifted the dog and not that the dog came along for the ride with the staff... pathetic.

    Kenwood

    The area bounded by 47th Street on the north, 51st Street/Hyde Park Boulevard on the south, Cottage Grove Avenue on the west, and Lake Michigan on the east is officially the southern part of the Kenwood community area, but it is often unofficially considered to be part of Hyde Park due to the shared culture and history of the two areas. The name Hyde Park-Kenwood is sometimes applied to the area encompassing Hyde Park and the southern part of Kenwood. The southern part of Kenwood is notable for its many luxurious mansions, which were built at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries for wealthy Chicagoans. A number of prominent Chicagoans currently reside in this area. In particular, a mansion on the corner of Greenwood Avenue and 51st Street/Hyde Park Boulevard (on the southern edge of Kenwood) has been the home of U.S. President Barack Obama since 2005. A mansion on the corner of Woodlawn Avenue and 49th Street was built for Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad and is currently owned by his successor Louis Farrakhan. In addition, there is a mansion in the 4900 block of Woodlawn Avenue that was once the home of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
    Yeah, really sounds like the Hood where young kids are being shot.

    Looking at this statistic the Obama neighborhood seems pretty safe to me.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Now that's one country every liberal can be proud of

    Now if Obama's family vacation helps to turn that country around, then I'll give credit where credit is do. But I think Obama wants America to look like Zimbabwe.

    Please provide me with a single legitimate source... not an unsourced blog, but a legitimate source... that says:

    1. Obama has a dog handler who earns $100K a year.

    2. That any dog handler Obama has hired is being paid for by the taxpayers.

    Not "I have heard", not "people say", not "I have read" but hard, cold facts.

    Thanks.

    Re: What Sequester? First dog Bo is airlifted to Obama holiday home

    Let me share what I have found out about the $102,000 dog handler.

    Does Obama Pay Dog Trainer $102,000 at Tax Payer Expense? - wafflesatnoon.com

    The only trainer Bo had was Sylvia-Stasiewicz, who initially had no idea the puppy she trained was destined for the White House. She passed away in 2011. Early in 2009, White House horticulturist was spotted walking the dog, and immediately the Obama's got flack that a White House employee was *gasp!* seen walking the dog.

    This rumor started via a chain email comparing Obama's "$102,000 dog trainer" to a Navy Seal's salary. No source was included. A book on Amazon stated that this "$102,000 dog trainer was always on call, and always flew alone with the dog." No sources were cited, and later Amazon had to clarify that the dog did not fly alone, but flew in a jet with other aides and staff when the presidential party took two small jets rather than Air Force One.

    The person identified in that 2010 book was Reggie Love, personal aide to Obama from 2009 to 2011. Reggie Love's salary was $102,000 per year.

    And here we are three years later with completely uninformed people yelling, "Oh yeah? What about the $102,000 dog handler taxpayers have to pay for???"

    Get a ****ing grip, people, and get a ****ing clue before regurgitating utterly bogus, unsubstantiated garbage. There is quite enough legitimate complaints to throw at Obama to waste time and brain cells on this ridiculous poppycock.

    Re: What Sequester? First dog Bo is airlifted to Obama holiday home

    That is an unsourced, right-wing BLOG that says nothing about the dog handler other than this single rhetorical quote in the article: "What do you mean I can’t get my passport renewed? Couldn’t they fire Obama’s $100,000 a year dog trainer instead?”

    But of course, there IS no $102,000 per year dog trainer.

    Fail.
