Do they expect the President and his wife/family to travel by Greyhound or JetBlue? We want the First Family to be safe and comfortable, whatever it takes. You can't compare them to a civilian family going on vacation.
This year, we were actually able to afford a vacation with mini-vacations on the weekend. Woo hoo!

Yeah, why not? obama is always saying how he can relate with ordinary Americans. What better way to relate then to do without, or travel like everyone else?

As one works their way up the food chain, they usually forget old ways like maybe going to a laundry mat in college or not getting a new car every 3-5 years, etc. I'll have to look at Obama's old salary and current.
He gets $400,000 plus a $50,000 annual expense account. I doubt anyone here makes what he makes in his current position. Let the bragging begin.

Here's the real scoop on the income.
Anyone with any common sense knows that as you move up the food chain financially, you are going to put away old ways and embrace a higher standard of living. We recently rented a truck to get household items and had a dolly. It made life a whole lot easier. We could have set up delivery, but we wanted items that day.
I don't care if "the gang" doesn't believe me. They have quit bragging about their houses with pools. What happened?
