Standing against big government and for the people!
Leadership: We may not know who gave the stand-down order, but we do know the First Family has a second Portuguese Water Dog. Will it too be airlifted on a Marine aircraft to Martha's Vineyard?
The breaking news on Monday was not a new revelation about the National Security Agency, the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, or the pending collapse of ObamaCare.
It was that President Obama and his family have adopted a companion for first dog Bo. The new presidential pet is called Sunny, a name obviously not picked because it reflects the future of America under this administration.
"We suspect Sunny will follow in Bo's footsteps and keep the president company in the Oval Office, go for walks with the first family after their 6:30 family dinner and even jump up on the first lady's lap from time to time," a White House spokesman announced to a world still waiting to find out what the president was doing the night of the Sept. 11 Benghazi terrorist attack other than play cards with presidential "body man" Reggie Love.
If Sunny does follow in Bo's footsteps, he'll soon be privately airlifted, as was Bo, to Martha's Vineyard aboard a Marine MV-22 Osprey, a helicopter that operates at a cost of $11,000 per hour. Bo was given a ride on one of two MV-22s that took various personnel on the trip with the Obamas and arrived ahead of them.
When the administration guts the defense budget to the point where training and military readiness are suffering, why are scarce military aircraft being used at all on a presidential vacation and why is the presidential dog being ferried on one?
