Obama's TAXI
This is from Mark Knoller of CBS. The pilots and crew of Air Force One are flying more hours than a rookie on a beer run. They are tired of it too, and are adding more crew to Air Force-1 - I know this for a fact because I'm one of the instructors that trains the crews. Our company (Atlas Air) has had the Air Force-1 and E-4 contract for over two years and I've been doing it for about 8 months now.

Last year (2010) Obama flew in Air Force One 172 times, almost every other day.

White House officials have been telling reporters in recent days that the Democrat doesn't intend to hang around the White House quite so much in 2011. They explain he wants to get out more around the country because, as everyone knows, that midterm election shellacking on Nov. 2 had nothing to do with his health care bill, over-spending or other policies, and everything to do with Obama's not adequately explaining himself to his countrymen and women.

And with only 673 days remaining in Obama's never ending presidential campaign, the incumbent's travel pace will not likely slacken.

At an Air Force-estimated cost of $181,757 per flight HOUR (not to mention the additional travel costs of Marine One, Secret Service, logistics and local police overtime), that's a lot of frequent flier dollars going into Obama's carbon footprint. $80 Million every time it lands & takes off.

We are privy to some of these numbers thanks to CBS' Mark Knoller, a bearded national treasure trove of presidential stats. According to Knoller's copious notes, during the last year, Obama made 65 domestic trips over 104 days, and six trips to eight countries over 22 days. Not counting six vacation trips over 32 days.

He took 196 helicopter trips, signed 203 pieces of legislation and squeezed in 29 rounds of left-handed golf.

Obama last year gave 491 speeches, remarks or statements. That's more talking than goes on in some entire families, at least from fatherly mouths.

In fact, even including the 24 days of 2010 that we never saw Obama in public, his speaking works out to about one official utterance every 11 waking hours. Aides indicate the "real good talker" believes we need more.

Obama has spent over $100 million taxpayer dollars flying around in Air Force One, and probably another $100 million on his entourage. Obama is just another tin-pot dictator living lavishly at the expense of his subjects.

And the seniors have to "tighten our belts" because we aren't getting a COLA again this year... and none last year!

THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED PUT THIS GREEDY WINDBAG IN OFFICE!!

Just have to say that in my opinion, this is by far the worst administration that I can remember all the way back to Eisenhower.

But I don't really blame him (his politics are what they are and no changing that) so much as the people who voted him and the other far left wing in. We get the government that gets voted in, voting does count.

What were they thinking?

Obviously they weren't. Unfortunately, the "non-thinkers" are quickly becoming the majority in this nation and will only pander to what the media tells them. They have little patience, and zero desire to educate themselves. They want everyone else to the work for them and have someone tell them what to do. The "easy way" is their desired lifestyle and they want a Government that will provide that for them.

None of the other presidents inherited the crisis we are in.They all contributed to it and this goes to show us this clown in the white house is no different then the rest of the past presidents.

You should be sad that your boy Obama couldnt fix it like he said he could.He is only going to let the next guy inherit it just like all the other wastes that were elected before him...and then people will still say that it wasnt Obama's fault because he "inherited it".
