"According to the White House website, President Obama enjoys the comfort and convenience of two 'highly customized' Boeing 747s with '4,000 square feet of floor space on three levels,' including 'a medical suite,' two galleys that 'can feed 100 people at a time,' and 'an extensive suite for the President that features a large office, lavatory, and conference room' -- all at taxpayer expense. But as he proved at his press conference on Monday, where he once again inveighed against 'these egregious loopholes that are benefiting corporate jet owners,' Obama cannot stop complaining about other people's fancy airplanes. After all, children's lives are at stake." (07/13/11)
