Wow.

I mean, on one hand, I agree with subby, in that there should be plenty of trainers in DC for POTUS and FLOTUS to use.

But on the other hand, how much of a farking derptard douchebag faux-outrage pansy-ass whiny biatch do you have to be to get that headline out of a very nice, positive article?

I bet the arugula lettuce is flown into DC on a B-1.

Ummm...perhaps I am mistaken: But where does the article say that Obama flies him out personally? If he takes a plane with other commuters, that's pretty much okay, carbon-wise.

Not only that, but Al Gore was the politician most closely aligned with the carbon footprint idea.

And apparently he has some other clients in Washington DC, not just Obama. This is why we can't have nice political discussions. There are tons of things to criticize Obama about. This is not one of them.
 
2011-02-28 08:56:29 PM  
Yeah, subby, I'm sure they send out Air Force One to pick up one guy every week, sending tons of emissions into the air that wouldn't be there otherwise.

Is there any evidence that Obama is using taxpayer money to fly this guy in? If so, show it to me, otherwise, I can't even begin to pretend to care.

Srsly, find something important to (pretend to) care about.

Now THAT's a troll headline.

I heard that it costs the taxpayers $200,000,000.00 every time he flies in.

And Dijon Mustard is brought in on supertankers from Dijon France with an entire US Navy Battle Group escort every week. For shame, Mr. President.

I need to start getting to the gym more.

My commander-in-chief, who I'm pretty sure has a much busier schedule than me, finds time to work out every day, I can take my lazy ass to the gym once a day.

Meh. He has unionized government workers skate for him. They're paid $250,000 a year, they only work four days a month, and when they take their union-mandated breaks they get to smoke cigarettes made of real taxpayer ashes.

The president should be able to fly in a trainer or a casserole from Chicago anytime he wants. Suck it peons.

Why do I find this thread incredibly unimportant, if not downright dumb.

/oh. I forgot. I'm not supposed to post in threads in which I don't care about the topic.

No problem, the flight is only 26 minutes.

This. Whether or not the trainer's on a commercial flight from Chicago every week or not has basically no impact on the nation's carbon emissions: that plane was flying anyway, full or empty.

And once again, it's only liberals who have any meaningful criticism of Obama.

The only mention of any sort of travel was that the President feels bad about having him move to D.C. so he's trying to get him more work by telling his friends about him.

President Compassionate Conservative killed a lot of soldiers by lying about WMDs, pissed away a budget surplus, and took a giant shiat on the Constitution and our education system.

President Read My Lips raised taxes.

President I Did Not Trade Arms For Hostages traded arms for hostages.

President I Am Not a Crook lied about his knowledge of a break-in and tried to cover it up.

What's your point?

If he's flying coach it's probably not that bad.

Plus, if he established a close relationship with this personal trainer then the trainer could very well be superior for Obama vs. anything in DC. And when Obama leaves the presidency he'll probably be back in Chicago and still need a trainer.

Only in that little alternate reality you and the other senile old teabaggers have managed to create for yourselves.

Don't you ever get tired of attacking those windmills?

When the White house tells you something so blitheringly stupid that it can't be true, it is probably not true. The dude is probably some kind of CIA-DARPA covert spy scientist advising Obama on UFO technology or something. Some nosy reporter asked staff who eh was and the guy was and the reply was "Uhhh...personal trainer. from Chicago. Yeah. That's it." and now they have to roll with the stupid story because of dipshiats who can't take a top secret hint.

I recently read Frank Bruni's (NY Times food critic) memoirs, and for several years after he moved to NYC to take over that job -he'd been their Washington corespondent- he took the train to DC three times a week to see his personal trainer, as they'd built up a relationship and Bruni had serious weight issues for most of his life. He finally gave it up and found a trainer in NYC because the AMTRAK costs were eating him alive.

a) Wow, the right-winters are just looking for everything.
b) Yeah, it's a bit dickishly wasteful and extravagant.
c) I didn't think Obama was all that much of an enviro-executive that this would somehow be hypocrisy.
