Had to spend all that pre-2008 Homeland Defense largess somehow!!
Seriously, I have heard rumors that they don't even take Marine 1 out anymore since SFPD cannot afford to pay for her fuel consumption. The Bush admin paid for localities and state govt.s buying lot of toys from their favorite defense contractors but didn't allocate any follow up usage funding. Still, good lookin' boat all-in-all even if they can only afford to trot her out once or twice a year!
