OP is nominated for asshole of the week.

Criticizing a candidate for taking what could be his last chance to see his grandmother. He didn't even mention her poor state of health!

Oh we are going to Address this one .. !!

Corbett.. Ive read all your postings regarding this trip and him using his campaign aircraft.
Before we even argue about the merits of the security liabilty of a presidential candidate and the concerns in regards to travel not to mention the merits of visiting his grandmother on her deathbead... No no ..!!! lets skip all of that and get down to one of he primary elements of the assertion you made.

This is my request...

I'd imagine it actually cost MORE for Obama to fly to Hawaii on his 767 than Palin spent on her "shopping spree".

Discuss.
HIs grandmother, the woman who raised him, is dying.

go fuck yourself in a goat farm, Corbett. you're worse than Satan.

Why does the president fly in air force one even when he's going to texas for vacation? Because it'd be retarded as all fuck for him to fly commercial.

However, that granny angle was a good diversion.
I don't get it. Are you claiming he wasn't born in the US? Where was he born then?

FWIW it was very annoying when he landed because every channel had his plane taxiing to the jetway in the lower left corner of the TV screen. That sucked. Couldn't see half the show I was trying to watch. Never even got to see him... just that stupid 'hope' logo on the tail for a half hour.

Corbett, it's going to be so hard for you to put your head in the sand when Obama becomes president, because, clearly, you suffer from extreme cranial-rectal inversion. what a sad little man you are. Please explain, oh eco-conscious one, how he should get to Hawaii, walk? swim? helicopter? prius?
You're a sad little troll, and it's clear to everyone but you.

Sorry, its a 757. But are you denying that he took his campaign plane to Hawaii for this trip?

Thats not the issue here. I simply asked the question why is it ok for him to use campaign money to fly on a personal trip to visit his dying grandmother but its not ok for the RNC to use campaign money to give Sarah Palin a nice wardrobe while she is campaigning?

A troll calling someone a troll. Excellent. And considering the source, I'll take that as a complement.

Again, yours, like many others' here, reading comprehension has failed you. I asked why its ok for Obama to use campaign funds for a personal trip, but its not ok for Palin to use campaign funds to buy clothes for her while she campaigns.

It's OK for the RNC to outfit the alleged everyday person with high fashion, in fact I approve it. It's also cool for the RNC to buy her daughter Trisquit a $7500 hand bag. IMO that's money that's not going to be spent on ridiculous attack ads.

Me? Troll? Ok, that's cool. And as for taking a smaller plane, perhaps, as many others of sound mind have said here, the number of people needed to travel with him won't allow a smaller plane.
And trolls like you, especially you, would piss and moan if he took a riverboat to hawaii. My reading comprehension is just fine, it's just your moral compass is in the shitter, you compare a wardrobe to someone visiting a woman who raised him that's very ill.
Good comparison, spot on.
Typical reaction from people like you, you see you're in a hole, and you surmise the only way to get out is to dig faster.
