    If you'd bothered to read this entire thread, you'd have learned that the same plane transporting the dog was filled with Obama staff members and aides, because the runway was too small for Air Force One, necessitating two separate flights for all personnel. Please don't embarrass yourself further by regurgitating Post #1 propoganda that was proven false by the end of the first page.

    Have a nice evening.

    Separate from the first family. But surrounded by a slew of staff and aides who were unable to fit into the first plane. There are several links provided here to support that. If you had bothered to read them, you wouldn't continue to be wrong.

    Bo got bumped by a bag of basket balls.

    Why didn't Bo travel with the Obama's ?

    Why does the Obama's even have Bo ? It's obvious that Bo isn't treated as a member of the Obama family.

    When Bo has to take a crap, does Barack, Michelle or the kids take him outside ?

    I bet they don't even feed him, one of the 100 K staff members feeds Bo.

    How long is this vacation ? The taxpayers are paying $29,150 per night just for the Secret Service hotel rooms.

    Why would they use the V-22 which is an expensive aircraft to fly ? My sources are better than the medias. Two V-22's round trips to get Bo, Obama's basketballs and other groupies to Martha Vineyards, $36,800. If they use the V-22's for the return trip, another $36,800. Total $73,600. The media comes up with a higher cost.

    Why does Obama need so many basketballs ?


    I don't think the Obama's even know how to take a vacation. At least not the American way.

The information was obtained from the Illinois General Assembly Web site. First, journals for each day were examined for votes and bill numbers where Obama voted "present." Then, bill summaries and vote tally pages were reviewed.

    Records from Obama's first session, the 90th (1998-1999), cannot be electronically retrieved and were not included in this analysis. They are available to the public in hard copy at the state house in Springfield.

    Without the full set of records, we could not verify the 129 figure, though we did count more than 100 "present" votes in the data we had available. The records show "present" votes were a tiny proportion of the more than 4,000 that Obama cast during his tenure in the chamber. Obama's presidential campaign has depicted them as strategic in nature: Either Obama was working with Democratic leaders to thwart Republican legislation when the GOP controlled the Senate, registering opposition to proposals he thought were unconstitutional or ineffective; or he was providing political help to moderates who were under pressure to support some of the bills.

    Hey Peter,

    Why is a dutchman so interested in an internal issue that is up to Americans to decide? You're dutch, dude. Either move here to America, or worry about your own country's spending.

    Anyone who goes on vacation and forgets their dog and leaves it behind should be reported to the SPCA.

    His vacation should be on his own dime, period. There is no reason tax payers should have to pay for a president's vacation, democrat or republican.
