    Obama flies dog on separate aircraft for vacation

    Paid for by hard working taxpayers who already can't afford their
    mortgages and losing their homes.

    The aircraft is a MV-22 Osprey, which is reserved for official business, but
    Obama is the first president to use oneOsprey for personal vacation; and a
    2nd one to fly his dog.

    More than 70 hotel rooms, each costing up to $345 a night, have been
    booked out for Secret Service agents, who took charge of luggage including
    two large mesh bags full of basketballs.

    The Obamas are staying in Chilmark on the western tip of the island, an area
    that is dotted with multi-million dollar homes. The neighbours include actor
    Ted Danson and the singer Carly Simon.

    • Nothing like politics to screw up the truth, the dog flew in on the flight shuttling in support staff prior to the Presidents arrival, source - Washington Times, not on a flight specifically for the dog as you would have us believe. The cost of the Ospreys is considerably cheaper than if they flew in on Air Force One, 11,000 dollars per hour for the Osprey as cited in your article compared to the 179,750 per hour for Air Force One.
