Everyone Must Sacrifice… Michelle Obama’s Special Hawaii Trip Will Cost Taxpayers $63,000

In January 2009, before the president signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying,

“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.

Not only are the Obamas taking another vacation this year, this time to Hawaii, but Michelle Obama’s special trip will cost taxpayers an additional $63,000.
The White House Dossier reported:

The decision by First Lady Michelle Obama to leave on schedule for her two-week Hawaii vacation and not wait a few days for her delayed husband will probably cost taxpayers more than $63,000 in additional expenses, according to a White House Dossier analysis.

President Obama was supposed to depart for Hawaii Saturday, but decided to stay in Washington until Congress finishes its work for the year. He’s now expected to depart today or tomorrow. But Mrs. Obama chose to leave without him Saturday, taking their two children and the dog along with her.

Mrs. Obama’s decision to go without the president forced her to take a separate plane, meaning two flights instead of one were needed to ferry the First Family to their vacation destination. Unless for some reason her plane was headed to Hawaii anyway, her trip involves substantial additional costs.

Sacrifice is for the little people.

    Lady M’s sacrifice involved flying off on our Winter Holiday in Hawaii in a “modest” military jet, a C40B, “one of the smaller and most efficient planes available in the White House fleet for this trip”

    This “modest plane” is actually a Boeing 737, ample berth for Lady M en familia.

    Picture of the “modest plane” here:

    Biggest reason for the two planes is that when the lovely Moosechell hauls a$$ somewhere there’s more than one planeload of it.

  • Dave in Alaska

    Moochelle does not concern herself with what things cost…those are talking points, not reality…do as we say, not as we do…..should be the motto of the Dimocrat Party…and Moochelle lives up to that all the time…

    … remember the $600 sneakers….and I should brought more money to the market in India..egads…..what a hippo this woman is…

    The insults to the American people continue … on, and on, and on …

    Hawaii has volcanoes. Let’s sacrifice Michelle by throwing her into one. The gods demand a sacrifice!

  • GP Loves Obama 100 percent

    Obama lies and Cal professors fall into the ditch.
    Cal unions mis reported to Feds about Stimulus job creation, reporting erroneously 63,000 jobs creatred, and when audited was found false and misleading. But the history books already recorded these numbers as positive. Does that make Cal professors the idiots of the world, where they are just liars , criminals and frauds? Look like is it so.

    without Cal the world would be in peace. 😉

  • MrGoodWench

    Hey Moochelle is sacrificing plenty. She is taking the dog IN THE SAME PLANE with her.
    Do you know how much money it saves the taxpayers ?

    Back in school I was taught that originally the President was supposed to use the salary drawn as President to fulfill his duties as President. If the President needed to mail a letter, he bought his own stamp with the money he was paid to be President.

    Now it’s just spend as much of other people’s money as you can while berating them for complaining about how they don’t agree with the way their money is being spent.

    I mentioned this the day I first hear Seabiscuit took her own flight… Now I have my suspicions confirmed.

    Not to worry Seabiscuit will have some minion plant some Arugula in her garden to offset her fat carbon footprint.

    and She is only using Obama’s stash to fly there.

    The new Dont ask dont tell act is for the liberals

    Dont ask whats in the bill we wont tell you till it bends you over and screws you like Bwarney Fwank.

    Dont ask what Seabiscuit and Obama spend money on and they wont tell you.

    Dont ask why something Obama comands you to do…Dont tell them to FO

    Dont ask to see his school transcripts or Birth Certificate and He wont tell you he isnt going to.

    Throw her in there if you want to see Kilauea make the Mt. St. Helens eruption look like a cheap fireworks display.

    And this is a big deal? This is SOP for any presidents wife.

  • xqqme

    “And the politicians say more taxes will solve everything…

    And the band played on…”

    not one more dime!

  • bigL

    they have kids. they prob should not fly together. Otherwise, what I think about is:

  • squeaky
  • daryl

    kevin m commented:
    “This is SOP for any presidents wife.”

    Maybe so, but there are those who resent just how much “sop” she gets when she drags that bisquit of hers through the gravy bowl.
