. . . but he’s forced to take the staff chopper.
From the pool report by Carol Lee of POLITICO, filed after landing in Panama City and then departure via chopper to a Coast Guard station where he will meet with locals and make remarks.
At 11:01 a.m. POTUS and FLOTUS are en route to a landing zone near US Coast Guard Panama City district office. Meanwhile, before POTUS exited AF1, Bo was walked by an aide to a separate helo for staff.
And for all you dog lovers out there, Bo made several appearances in the press cabin during the roughly two-hour flight. Lured by pool’s montecristo sandwiches, he hung out for quite a bit, sitting obediently and at one point plopping his paws up on your pooler’s seat in hopes of a treat. The first pup apparently has the run of the place when he flies AF1. He repeatedly returned to visit pool, but in the absence of food he didn’t linger for long. Your pooler has several blurry BlackBerry pics of Bo if anyone is interested.
