Vail Wins – Aspen Loses!

by – no more slope closures in Vail!

“Our Soul’s are broken…”  If you’re wondering what Ski Slopes will experience “secret-service closures” this President’s Day Weekend 2012 – those slopes are in Aspen (Buttermilk actually), not in Vail.

ECT cheers: “Hurray for our side in Vail!”

But don’t worry – the head of Pitkin County Democrats – has since weighed in on this important local issue”

Ms. O’Leary continued…

The ECT folks are in 100% agreement with Ms. O’Leary’s second point – we’re delighted Mrs. Obama is in Aspen too!  Although for remarkably different reasons.

ECT readers should note that by this time next year her husband will have much more in common with millions of Americans all over our great nation – Unemployment!  Not to mention our local (soon to be Unemployed) Eagle County Public School Teachers!

The ECT wishes Mom Obama and daughters a safe ski vacation in Aspen and will gladly lend our help next year to help find the Obama’s a suitable job, based on their families skill set.

Now one wonders just what that might be…  ECT readers interested in reading the entire story from the Aspen Daily News this past weekend can (Click Here)

  1. Hey, Aspen’s loss is Vail’s gain…Mama Obama can be a hypocrite in Aspen instead of Vail this year…how much is this fandango costing the taxpayers?? I love the line about Aspen having better ski mountains…really?? Virtually every expert disagrees with that statement. Of course the first family does not care about skiing.,.Aspen must have had more decadent food! LOL

    • Aspen is loaded with political ‘leftists’.
      Their untrue, poorly reasoned comments don’t surprise the ECT at all.
      No doubt the mama-obama as you say…feels much more at home over there in Pitkin County!

  2. re Costs on Air Force 1 and 2–

    “Air Force-estimated cost of $181,757 per flight hour” http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/01/obama-air-force-one-2010-by-the-numbers.html

    –and Carbon Footprints— (What about your Carbon Footprint Mrs. Obama?)

    * A car with 40 mpg fuel economy driven for 2400 miles emits 0.708 (of CO2 aka ‘Carbon Footprint’)

    * A average airplane flown for 2400 miles emits 1.164 (of CO2 aka ‘Carbon Footprint’)

    And with many thanks to our British Reporters–please read on.

    SPAIN: AUGUST 2010
    Michelle Obama and 40 of her friends paid for personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.
    * But the U.S. taxpayer would have paid for the 68-strong security detail, personal staff and use of presidential jet Air Force Two.
    * Payment for the secret service team ran at around $281 each – nearly $98,000 for the duration of the summer break.
    * Use of Air Force Two comes in at $149,900 for the round trip, not including time on the ground.

    Mrs Obama’s personal staff, of which there were an unknown number, should also be taken into account

    HAWAII: DECEMBER 2010
    According to the Hawaii Reporter the costs were: $63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President
    * $1,000,000 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One

    * $251,000 in police overtime

    SKI TRIP TO VAIL: FEBRUARY 2011
    Michelle Obama and her daughters stayed at the Sebastian hotel on Vail Mountain, where rooms cost more than $2,400 for multi-bedroom suites.
    The family appear to have flown there on Air Force Two.
    They were escorted to the resort by about a dozen vehicles, including 15 state and local law enforcement officers.

    MARTHA’S VINEYARD: AUGUST 2011
    The Blue Heron Farm estate, where the Obama family stayed, rents for about $50,000 a week.
    Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama flew to the estate just hours before the president to make the most of the holiday – again, incurring extra flight costs.
    According to U.S. News and World Report, the Coast Guard was required to keep ships floating near the property. The presidential helicopter and jet remain at the ready and security agents will be on 24-hour duty.

  3. All the libs picked on GW for being “stupid” yet we have a Harvard Grad president who started college on “student aide for foreign students” in Claremont, CA and sends his family on tax payer paid vactions all over the world because he doesn’t own a vacation property. Meanwhile, our “dumb” president GW vactioned at his Crawford, TX ranch that he owns! Too bad we have such a liberal media that won’t dare put a Democrat in their place, but woudln’t hesitate to jump all over a Republican. At some point in the near future, American will wake up and start realizing they are being taken for a bad circus ride!
