    I do not know how many people fit in Marine one, maybe with the security detachment, flight crew and the 4 piece Obama family there is not enough room to have the dog fly there with them. And who cares, do you think all former presidents personally cared for their pets all of the times. They will have had au-pairs or dog walkers etc. to take care of their animals.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Then what's the point of having a dog? For show, right?

    The president gets a salary just like congress does....or did you think he works for free?

    "Effective January 1, 2001, the annual salary of the President of the United States was increased to $400,000 per year (up from $200K), including a $50,000 expense allowance....
    Presidential Pay and Compensation – Pay and Compensation of the President of the United States


    I'm pretty sure the president is paying for his vacation rental house.


    Did you complain when congress doubled Bush's salary?

    Yeah, that is why people have dogs. Then what is the point of having children? For photo-ops and if they are old enough to campaign, right?

    No, that is why politicians have dogs. Politicians aren't people, get with the program.

    Funny,when Republican Presidents took a vacation, Nixon had his house in San Clemente, Ford had Palm Springs, Reagan had his ranch near Santa Barbara, G.H Bush owned a large home where all the rich people live and G.W. Bush had his ranch in Texas.

    Clinton during his entire adult life never owned a home until after his last term as President.
    I hear that the Sheriff had to evict Clinton from the Arkansas Governor's mansion because he didn't have a home to go too after being Governor.

    Another thing I noticed about Republican Presidents compared to Democrat Presidents. Democrats when they come to the Left Coast and come to La La Land to pick up cash from the liberal elite, they always have Air Force One land at LAX screwing up thousands of travelers schedules and disrupting millions of people lives with closed roads, business losing millions of dollars because the roads are closed, etc. And if Obama is on the West Side and you live on the West Side you have to show ID to get to your house. But you don't have to show ID to vote.

    Whereas Republicans being Cn'C always used military airfields when they came to L.A.

    Nixon always used El Toro MCAS.
    Ford, Reagan, both Bush's always used March AFB.
    No commercial flights delayed, no streets closed, nobody lives interrupted.
    And you never had to show ID to get home if a Republican was in town.
    Same is true for Chicago.

    When I lived there, every time Obama would come to visit, it seems like I would have to get through a security detail just to get to my own apartment.

    The man has no regard for the regular folks. The entire city has to stop and go on lockdown so that he and his wife can have dinner at a friend's. Ridiculous.

    I think it started with the Kennedy's and got worse with every Democratic president since. They think they're American royalty.

    Sure Obama rents his place, so what.. it is still far cheaper than outfitting a ranch with the state of the art tech..

    WE being AMERICANS, not YOU.

    What is your interest in this story, as a European?

    None of your business anyway.
