President Caligula's Dog's Jet Arrives for Vacation

While the rest of us are invited to splash around in the oil slick Obama's red tape made of the Gulf Coast — assuming we're not too busy slaving away to pay our taxes — his own family is living large far away in Bar Harbor, Maine:
Air traffic at the small Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton was shut down for the presidential arrival. A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter patrolled the air in anticipation of the first family's touchdown, and a pair of local fire and rescue trucks stood ready on an otherwise empty tarmac at the private air hangar.
The Obamas then traveled onto Mount Desert Island in a motorcade of at least 16 vehicles. It was led by two Maine State Police cruisers and included five black Chevrolet Suburbans.
The early-morning fog quickly burned off, and the sky was bright blue for the arrival of Air Force One, which in this case was a G3 Gulf Stream.
Now that's laying down a carbon footprint even a President can take pride in. If the global warming pseudoscience on which he's basing Cap & Charade had any merit, autumn would have just been pushed back a week.
The Anointed One's dog made his own attempted contribution to extending summer weather:
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.
No doubt the flight attendant served $300/lb Kobe beef in a platinum-plated dog dish.
Meanwhile, Obama continues to pursue an energy policy that will make prices "skyrocket" as promised. Ever fewer of us will be able to afford to travel at all. But that's fine; B. Hussein and the gang are enjoying themselves enough for all of us.
