    Wait ... so there's only a recession when the president decides to go somewhere?

    Overall, I don't have a real problem with this. I mean, it's kind of one of the perks of being President. On the other hand, it sure isn't going to win him any support and it just fucking looks bad.

    Would you rather he drive with the motorcade and tie up traffic for miles?

    Yeah, probably not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but image and perception count for something.

    other presidents who presided in the era that obama has stated that we are virtually in or would have fully been in had his spendulus plan not passed....did they act as obama? in that, hopping around the country to enjoy a show he promised his wife, despite that he is telling others you can't just go to vegas anymore....

    obama's behavior is one of the reasons i think democrats are the biggest hypocrites crawling the planet. they proclaim they are not like republicans, they care for the middle class guy, the lower class guy....yet, as soon as they get power, what do they do........act and live like the upper class guy

    I'm not talking about the flight, hell, that may be the best part of the story considering he didn't take the 747. I'm referring to the whole thing in general. Like I said, I don't really care, but it looks bad. He makes a statement a couple of days ago saying the country is out of money, GM is filing for Chapter 11, Chrysler is in the dumps, unemployment is near an all time high, banks are in trouble, people are losing their homes, and he and the Mrs are hopping a Lear Jet for a night out in New York city. If it were me, I'd wait a little while, he's going to be President at least another 3 1/2 years. Broadway's not going anywhere. Stay home, watch a movie in your private theater.

    Seriously? I wonder if any of the Republicans jogged everywhere during a "recession" ... of course, no one with half a brain would think this is such a thing ...
