Royal Obama Family Off to Hawaii For 17 Day Vacation

Back in January 2009, Barack Obama told Americans that,
“Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Well… Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.

While Americans suffer through the worst economy since the Great Depression, the Obama family will enjoy a 17 day vacation in Hawaii this year.
FOX Nation and Daily Mail reported:

While most Americans are lucky to get a few weeks of holiday every year, it seems the country’s leader gets a little more freedom in the matter.

President Barack Obama has announced his Christmas vacation to Hawaii – for a staggering 17-day trip.

Obama, who visited the island just two weeks ago for an economic summit, will head to Honolulu on Saturday December 17 until Monday January 2.

    20 days, $4 Million Vaca for the Imperial familiy

    The Obamas are paying for their own vacation, right? Every dime, right? Including the full cost of the air fare, right? Not a single penny of Taxpayer Funds will be spent on this, correct?

    Why doesn’t he just pack up and go there permanently? He doesn’t do anything good in Washington anyway, and the White House could use an airing.

    Stay there.

    Have a gander at this from the link I posted in #27 –

    TRAVEL: $3,629,622

    The biggest expense is President Barack Obama’s round trip flight to Hawaii via Air Force One.

    A Congressional Research Service report released in May 2012 said the plane typically used by the President, a Boeing 747, costs $179,750 per hour to operate. The U.S. Air Force has listed the cost of travel as high as $181,757 per flight hour.

    Travel time for Air Force One direct from Washington D.C. to Hawaii is about 9 hours or as high as $1,635,813 each way for a total of $3,271,622 for the round trip to Hawaii and back.

    The cost for USAF C-17 cargo aircraft that transports the Presidential limos, helicopters and other support equipment to Hawaii has never been disclosed in the years the President has traveled to Hawaii. However, the flight time between Andrews Air Force Base and Hawaii is at about 21.5 hours roundtrip, with estimated operating cost of $12,000 per hour. (Source: GAO report, updated by C-17 crew member). The United States Marine Corps provides a presidential helicopter, along with pilots and support crews for the test flights, which travel on another C-17 flight. That is $258,000, not including costs for the 4 to 6 member crew’s per diem and hotel.

    . . . . . And we wonder why we are in financial distress!

    This skin in the game comment, BARFING, Obama is one of the most disgusting and provocateur of racism.

    What is it black leaders are so embolden, Obama. And the Bias Media never reports this and never will at least for the next 4 years and Beyond.

    Don’t know about you, but I’ve been fascinated with art lately. In the spirit of artistic appreciation allow me to present for you artistic representation of the USA under Commie-O and his administration.

    So this means that right when crunch time comes on Christmas Eve and Congress is once again holding our attention hostage to their hidden dealmaking, the so-called president will be in Hawaii.

    Leading from behind afar.

  • TrickyDick

    Barry Soetoro is a worthless freeloading POS!

    The easiest thing Obama could do to convince America that he’s serious about our finances, would be to hang around home for the holidays. But no….he’d rather shuck, jive, divert, lie, blow smoke, campaign, and point fingers….so he can take a three week vacation in Hawaii for 4 Million. He’s his own worst enemy. What a punk!
