    From your article
    What should be noted is the first family had to fly in a smaller Gulfstream GIII/G3 jet, which seats up to 19. The jet most recognize for “Air Force One” was too large to land at the small Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton, Maine.

    With all the buzz surrounding the article the Morning Sentinel was required to write a clarification statement to point out that the jet carrying the Obama pet was also full of other staff members.

    Since the president is always accompanied by staff and Secret Service agents, one aircraft would not be enough. Therefore, the fact that the first dog arrived in a separate aircraft with other staffers is really no big deal.

    What you fail to grasp is the imagery of opulence and extravagance compared to the lecturing of sacrifice by this crowd that looks bad.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    The "imagery of opulence" of a story about how they flew their dog in his own jet when in reality he was just flying in a jet full of staffers?

    I'm sure it looks bad. Bull**** stories usually do look bad.

    You know whats really easy to notice.
    The secret service.
    They aren't very secret.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    While I am annoyed by this trip, like why couldn't she just have gone to Disneyworld, or one of America's various attractions? Not only do I think no one in America would have cared, it would be showing support for her own economy, let me make a few points:

    -In the bigger scope of things, each tax payer probably paid less than .0005 cents on this trip if you were to look at it like that
    -Im pretty sure the President's family no matter what President is only allowed to travel by official craft and vehicles.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    How about the 40 of her closest friends?

    It seems like a lot of bs if you ask me.
    And this is towards any presidential vacation travel with government vehicles.

    I mean I'd love to take my family to Spain and would if the airfare were free.
    I can afford the room and board.
    Pretty unfair.
