Obama’s Latest $7 Million Hawaiian Vacation Is an Insult to Struggling Americans

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 just blew $7 million on their latest Hawaiian vacation.
The Telegraph reported:

$16.4 trillion – that’s the latest figure for America’s massive national debt. Nearly $6 trillion of this debt was racked up in the first term of the Obama presidency – a 50 percent increase. It is horrifying to imagine what the debt will be when Obama leaves the White House in 2016, unless Congress has the willpower to stand in the way.

Meanwhile, as the world’s superpower is literally drowning in debt, President Obama is basking in the warmth of the beaches of Hawaii, at an exclusive resort way beyond the financial reach of most Americans. The president pays the cost of his own family’s accommodations, but there are a large number of associated costs which are paid from the public purse.

What is the actual cost of Obama’s lavish vacation to the American taxpayer? A staggering $7 million, according to veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler, who wrote in his blog earlier this week:

In a move that is rich in irony, President Obama agreed Tuesday night to sign an emergency deficit reduction bill that does almost nothing to rein in spending and then jetted out to Hawaii to resume his vacation at an extra cost of more than $3 million to taxpayers.

The price tag is in addition to more than $4 million that is already being spent on the Obamas’ Hawaii idyll, bringing the total cost of the excursion to well over $7 million.

The added cost was incurred because by the time the Obamas return from Hawaii – whenever that is – the president will have used Air Force One to travel to Honolulu and back twice.

    Obama is not leaving after his second term. The U.S. will long be the USSA by then. The U.S. is finished under Obama before four years are up. People really need to give their heads a shake and wake up.

    His disciples and the media do not care what he does as long as he remains in power.

    Holger Awakens #1 – LIKE, LIKE, LIKE what you said an how you said it. We all know he’s a fake, a fraud and a phony – but who will be brave enough to begin to dig and report on the MSM side? There MUST be people who know things – I only pray they are brave enough to talk.

    Thanks for admitting I’ve I’ve known for five years..Obama haters are the biggest black-hating racists in American History. You and the rest of you “fellow Americans” are racists to the core!

    No, and there’s proof he won fair and square. Of course there’s no proof that Obama committed voter fraud. This is what psychologists call “projecting,” you are just a racist sore loser!

    Wait a second, Bush spent 3 out of 8 years on vacay and yet he still:

    – Orchestrated 911
    – Started two illegal wars
    – Killed thousands of US citizens who were stupid enough to join the military.
    – Killed at least 3 million (some reports say 3 billion) innocent muslims
    – Stole all the Oil in Iraq and piped it directly to Galveston
    – Generated multiple hurricanes in an attempt to wipe African Americans out
    – Destroyed the US economy
    – Allowed the assaulting weapon ban to disappear = killed babies
    – Cut taxes for billionaires, raised taxes on the middle class

    Obama and the family do nothing that upper middle class families don’t do. Whether they’re off to Manhattan, Colorado — or, like the Bushes — Maine or Texas for the weekend, it’s all the same. Find something legitimate to whine about.

    You wouldn’t know a Marxist if it came up and bit you on the ankle. Watch out! I think there is one sneaking up you now!

    Too many Americans hate Obama because he’s Black, those are just the facts and until that changes I’m afraid we will not be able to move forward as a Nation. If you hate him because of his politics that’s fine, if you hate him because he’s Black that’s not. If you hate this President because he is Black you are part of the problem and not the solution and you know who you are.

    Anyone who thinks Obama wants to destroy AMerica is a racist retarded scumbag! Obama doesn’t hate AMerica! You hate having a black man in office! Thanks for proving how much of a racist ahole you are!

    Questionman is a race card throwing racist retarded scumbag!

    Barack Hussein Obama’s action speak louder than work which has shown he has never been for the people in 2008-till in the future year. He only been for his golf all year around in office.
