What a waste of money. Does he want a different one for every day of the week? He thinks by flashing around planes or taking 100million dollar vacations, he's taking the ghetto out of him, sorry once a scum always scum.

We must pay trillions of dollars for modern black electronics that will exterminate domestic citizens. And the current people in power are not stopping this. And have even expanded what will be the final result.

Redundancy is the norm in all military and security equipment and plans. You seem to believe that this is going to only effect the current president and not future president's and their family members.

Your dislike for the president is noted, but to pretend that the building of new security systems to protect the president of the United States is just a move by Obama's part to add more "bling" to the presidential garage is pretty silly.

There are seven days a week on earth, shug.

The helicopters are not just for the POTUS, dipSTICK.

HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH!

You can't read past the first paragraph?

The POTUS, the VP, cabinet officers, and various members and situations of the state department.

And the helicopters are not all stationed on the white House lawn.

Closer to two dozen.

You are a very stupid person.

After you find out you are wrong rather than look up more information... you crawl out on the limb further.

I like the way the tea baggers sandbagged the last election, losing 8 out of 8.

And just lost in the primaries Tuesday.

Fool everyone by acting so incompetent... luring the Dems into false sense of security...

Reagan didn't need StarWars but the bill for his toys was $210 billion and they have yet to work.

Perspective, eh, Shug?
