    We are the most powerful country the world has ever known.
    We will transport our President to any corner of the earth.
    We don't care how much it costs "at the gas pump"!!
    We don't care how much it costs for his protection!!
    We are the United States of America and this is our time!

    Subject: Suck It Up Seniors !

    Last year 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.

    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. (I guess that includes the jaunt to New York to see a play.)

    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 11waking hours. Aides indicate the "Real Good Talker" believes we need more.

    Related: Obama spends nearly half his presidency outside Washington, plans to travel more.

    Related: Vacationer-in-Chief Spends $1.75 Million to Visit Hawaiian Chums,
    Obama has spent over $100 million taxpayer dollars flying around in Air Force One, and probably another $100 million on his entourage.

    Those are the facts - the conclusion: Obama is just another tin-pot dictator living lavishly at the expense of his subjects.

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


    Give a ghetto boy some toys and this is what happens.

    You arent getting a cola barrel bulger?

    Well you are going to have sell more 45 autos for $8000 dollars with the serial numbers ground off by calling them special ops weapons

    or the beatup krieghoffs that you portray wrongly as certain models

    I am sure you can overcome this

    btw the president does travel on a private fleet of airplanes and has for as long as we have had airplanes in America

    You could have figured that out by yourself

    If you dont like the current administration- get out and join the political process

    But stop suggesting to people that republicans are all like you- crack potted old and bitter men who blame their failures on others

    Because if the young people of today see the Republican party made up of racist old crack potted failures- guess what?

    The liberals will win without even trying

    Jump right out and count to 4

    Just telling it like it is- the reason Obama is president and the liberals may win again are these personal attacks

    If you want to make change- remember the majority rules- so you have to associate your efforts with the majority or keep quiet rather than push people away

    Then there is just this total hatred thing- that is nuts

    Regards from Iowa
