Man Who Wants To Fight Climate Change Sends Dog On Separate Fossil Fueled Flight

Obama’s just adding to his 41,000 metric ton carbon footprint

(Telegraph) Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft.

Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.

Bo, the president’s Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

I wonder how much that cost the American taxpayer, and what the rationale is for flying the dog separately? Oh, and did Obama pay for the carbon offsets himself, or stick the taxpayer with the bill? Did he even bother with offsets? Probably not.

    Teach 2 planes HAD to go to MV, the dog road on one. Did you actually think that the reason that the 2 planes flew to MV was to take the dog?
    Teach the POTUS is not the one who decides on what security is needed. That is done by the Secret Service. Why have 2 ospreys on standby? well I don’t know but perhaps someone thought it prudent to have some emergency way for the POTUS to leave MV if the only paved runway on the island was damaged.
    Why Ospreys instead of a helicopter ??? well ask the USMC why they feel the Osprey is better

    john: “it was perfectly reasonable for clinton to get a BJ while in the oval office. It only made sense. Hooking up in some hotel room is not secure. That’s a decision of the Secret Service. Why do you think Monica was on stand-by so much? She only BJ’d him once per visit.”

    thanks john for the perfect example of how to excuse Hitler.

    Bo .. arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys

    What john doesn’t get is that Obama is already at Martha’s. He already has a security detail and a means of leaving. He wanted the dog with him, the SS had to comply. The USMC probably chose the MV-22 because of cargo space and speed and where they had to land. These are official POTUS aircraft. As POTUS already had the USM1 and possibly USM2 whirlies there with him, the SS were forced to fly the more expensive MV-22s.

    Did anyone else note what other items were HAULED via the expensive MV-22s? Basketballs.

    The presidential palace at Martha’s doesn’t come equipped with basketballs? They had to fly them out with Bo?

    Someone please rid us of these pesky royals.

    Slightly off topic.

    ‘John Galt’ names the one man who had the inside info on Obama and Seal Team 6 scandal and the Benghazi scandal. This man who could topple Obama

    …Unfortunately the one man who has all of the truth behind the Defense Department and CIA scandals resigned in shame on November 9, 2012. The questions are swirling about General David Petraeus and why he has yet to come forward:

    Was he or his family threatened should he ever divulge anything?

    Was he paid to stay silent?

    Was he originally part of the plan and forced to retire early for refusing to execute future plans on behalf of the Globalist cabal?

    Is he a yellow bellied coward who just doesn’t care about his country any longer?

    Petraeus is the one man with all of the inside knowledge about many scandals and quite possibly might know if like Nixon, the CIA was ordered to engage in dirty tricks against the Tea Party, Romney campaign, and select Republican candidates running for office in 2012. If he were to step forward and do his patriotic duty by obeying the oath he took on the day he enlisted in the military to uphold and protect the United States Constitution, President Obama would be out of office long before the end of 2014.

    A few months later we now have the answer: He was Paid Off.

    …red Gen. David Petraeus to join investment firm…

    According to a release issued by the firm, the KKR Global Institute will ”further build on the firm’s efforts to help KKR’s portfolio companies expand globally, and it will periodically serve as an outlet for publishing the firm’s thought leadership products, including views from portfolio managers and industry experts.”…

    ed in November after it was revealed that he had engaged in an affair with a woman who wrote a biography of him, Paula Broadwell.

    In his new job, Petraeus will work with former Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman, who is KKR’s Global Head of Public Affairs.

    And if you do a bit of digging…

    KKR & Co. L.P. (formerly known as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.) is an American multinational private equity firm, specializing in leveraged buyouts, headquartered in New York. The firm sponsors and manages private equity investment funds. Since its inception, the firm has completed over $400 billion of private equity transactions and was a pioneer in the leveraged buyout industry.[2][3]

    The firm was founded in 1976 by Jerome Kohlberg, Jr., and cousins Henry Kravis and George R. Roberts, all of whom had previously worked together at Bear Stearns, where they completed some of the earliest leveraged buyout transactions…. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kohlberg_Kravis_Roberts

    Leveraged buyouts are what broke the back of US industry and transfered the built up wealth in our US corporations and transfered it to the elite. Statistics (courtesy of Bridgewater) showed in 1990, Foreign ownership of U.S. assets amounted to 33% of U.S. GDP. By 2002 this had increased to over 70% of U.S. GDP. – http://www.fame.org/HTM/greg%20Pickup

    If you want the really long analysis I can give it to you.
