I have never, and will never, complain about the President using AF1.
That aircraft was specially built to be a flying WH, with all of the communications equipment needed.
And when Bush flew down to Texas to his ranch, he was still in the US, and went to his own home, not somebody elses home.
And I will say it again, since you didnt listen or learn the first time, EVERY President has his private home updated with all of the same comunications gear and security arrangements as the WH, so the constant claim that Bush wasnt involved or that he was out of communications is wrong.
BTW, the cost of operating AF1 is approx. $40, 000 per hour of flight.
That includes fuel, paying the flight crew, and every other expense involved with a plane that size.
