    I don't know. I think you should research them and get back and let us know.

    You and I have already been down this exact road. We agreed that Obama should only be able to drive a 2002 Toyota Corolla to get everywhere.

    3 The Presidential Suite, Waldorf Astoria, New York City
    Waldorf Astoria
    Price: Starts at $10,000 per night

    The Layout: It’s like staying in a small wing of the Smithsonian. There’s the small, wooden rocking chair given as a gift by John F. Kennedy, between the fireplace and Eisenhower’s desk. In the bedroom—modest in size and somber in décor—you can draft a speech at General MacArthur’s desk, which dates back to the years when he lived at the Waldorf with his wife. Strangely, the windows, that look out onto unremarkable midtown scenes, are not state-of-the-art bullet-proof. The suite contains four bedrooms total, each with a separate key.

    Bragging Rights: There are so-called presidential suites all over the globe, but this is the only one where every US president since Herbert Hoover has spent the night.

    So you think Reagan was "snooty"?

    Nobody gave a rat's ass about First Family accomodations until Obama took office. Nobody.

    It's very generous of you to admit that Michelle Obama is gracious and that her daughters are lovely, then. I'm pleasantly surprised that you were able to set aside your partisan vitriol, if only for today.

    She didn't take personal trips abroad. And she never took her mother.

    No, they just complained about him going to his ranch in Crawford. Endlessly. Daily.

    And they are sure whining enough now about the cost of the Bush family travel.

    Oh. That's too bad. I guess you'll have to Google it for yourself. It's quite easy to find the information.

    Probably because he was AT his ranch in Crawford. Endlessly. Daily.

    Wait, pointing out what the Bush costs were when righties scream up and down about Obama's constitutes "whining"? Here I thought it meant "pointing out right wing bull**** for what it is."
