When your case is, primarily, composed of grunts mixed with words without any rhyme or reason ("O-Thug. Coke. Kenya. Chooms. Birther. *groan* Communism. *gargle* Nibiru! Nibiru! Moochelle! *unf unf unf*") then this video actually counts as an eloquent and effective presentation of ideas.

Sad, no?

Obama Returns to Hawaii at an Added Cost of Over $3 Million

by Keith Koffler on January 2, 2013, 5:58 am

 
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 was forced to return from Hawaii just after Christmas to complete negotiations to avoid the Fiscal Cliff, talks resulting in the bill that was passed by Congress last night. Obama resisted significant spending cuts throughout the negotiations, and the final legislation relies almost solely a new taxes to reduce the deficit.
 
Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the jet between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s decision to return to Hawaii amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.
 
The Obamas could have saved taxpayers millions by returning from Hawaii together after Christmas and then resuming their vacation at one of the many ritzy resorts that lie outside of Washington. If the beach is a must, even a trip to Florida would have been far less expensive.
 
Or they could have simply stayed at the White House or Camp David, each a luxurious government-run installation, billing taxpayers a relative pittance.
 
Obama will get a full day of vacation in today, landing in Hawaii early in the morning.

The cost of AF1 for this is 1.8 million alone. 

You think Obama is paying for that?

No, I agree with that part... Definitely the cost of the flight is on the taxpayer, but the rest doesn't seem likely.

Can't be denied the wife in a separate jet is an insult to the struggling populace.  She is trailer trash.

That's great but it's not answering the question.

Taxpayer Bill for Obama’s Hawaii Vacations: $20 Million

by Keith Koffler on January 4, 2013, 10:07 am

 
Michelle Obama recently revealed that she and President Obama don’t give Christmas gifts to each other. They merely say, “We’re in Hawaii,” and that’s Christmas gift enough.
 
But actually the present is from taxpayers, and it’s an expensive one.
 
The total cost to taxpayers of Obama’s vacations to Hawaii since becoming president is likely in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more. During a time of budget deficits that threaten the nation’s security and its future, the Obamas have chosen to  maintain a “family tradition” and vacation halfway around the world instead of finding far cheaper alternatives closer to home.
 
The $20 million figure is based on estimates of the cost of the four Hawaii vacations the Obamas have taken during Christmastime 2009-2012. According to a detailed breakdown by the Hawaii Reporter, the annual excursions in 2009, 2010, and 2011 cost about $4 million, much of it attributable to the expense of taking Air Force One, at an hour rate of about $180,000, on an eighteen-hour roundtrip journey to Honolulu and back.
 

New Year's Day, 2012
 
But $4 million almost certainly underestimates the true tally, as it does not include many miscellaneous items like the cost of flying advance teams out to Hawaii and separate flights Michelle Obama took in 2010 and 2011, when she left ahead of her husband, who was forced to stay in Washington to finish up work with Congress.
 
This year, Obama returned from Hawaii to complete a deal on the Fiscal Cliff and then jetted back to Honolulu, where he is now engaged in Part 2 of his vacation. The second roundtrip flight added about $3.24 million to the tab this time, bringing the cost of the 2012-1013 vacation to well over $7 million.
 
If we assume the estimates are probably quite low, then it’s likely to the bill for the combined vacations is more than $20 million.
 
Given that much of the cost involves transporting the First Family and its retinue, the Obamas could have saved taxpayers millions by doing what the vast majority of Americans do: taking either one trip a year, or none.
 
The Obamas get plenty of vacation. They have sojourned every summer in Martha’s Vineyard except for last year, when campaigning and pre-election concern about appearances got in the way. They often take a side trip somewhere else during the year, and Michelle goes skiing annually out West.
 
At the very least, they could spend their Christmas holidays at Camp David or at one of the many fine resorts outside of Washington, which would require only the use of the presidential helicopter to get them there.
 
If they must find a warm haven, a rental home on the Gulf Coast, the Atlantic shore of Florida, or even Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands could easily be arranged at a fraction of the price of getting to Hawaii.
 
Some argue that Obama is justified in returning to Hawaii because that is where he spent his formative years. But how many of us get to go visit our roots for a two week vacation every year?
 
The Obamas probably also feel they must go to Hawaii because they are creatures of habit. While there, they do the same things and visit the same places every year. But their allegiance to routine is costing the taxpayers – including those in the middle class Obama claims to care so much about – millions of dollars.
 
Which brings us to OBAMA 5-0.

Obama to Vacation in West Palm Beach
 Washington Dossier ^ | Thursday, February 14, 2013 | Keith Koffler

Posted on Thursday, February 14, 2013 9:46:10 AM by upchuck

Taxpayers will be sending President Obama on his second vacation of the year when he departs Friday aboard Air Force One for a Presidents’ Day Weekend excursion to West Palm Beach, Florida.

Without apparent irony, Obama has decided to jet to a well-trod stomping ground of the rich just days after presenting himself to the nation in his State of the Union speech as the guardian of the middle class.

Obama presumably will head directly to some fabulous golf course, having not been able to play in recent weeks because of the cold weather in Washington.

While Obama may pay some hotel and other miscellaneous costs related to his vacation travel, taxpayers are on the hook for much of the expense, shelling out for the president’s travel aboard Air Force One, a cargo plane that carries supplies, and the cost of the president’s substantial staff and security retinue.

While unemployment stands at nearly eight percent, Obama is taking his second vacation of 2013. The year is only six weeks old.

Obama initially traveled to Hawaii in late December. He returned after a several days to work on a fiscal cliff deal, and then went back for several more days in early January after signing a bill. So this will also be the third time in less than two months that taxpayers have footed the bill for a round-trip Obama vacation.

It’s not clear if Michelle is going with him – the White House announcement of Obama’s plans doesn’t mention her. She usually goes skiing in the Rockies around this point in the year.

Obamas barely unpacked, off to Martha’s Vineyard vacation

The Obamas have returned to Washington from their trip to Africa, but they won’t be home long. The White House confirmed Friday that the first family will be traveling to Martha’s Vineyard early next month, according to the Boston Globe.

The president, along with first lady Michelle Obama, will arrive on Aug. 10 and plan to stay until Aug. 18. The White House did not disclose whether the couple’s two daughters would be joining them, but the Globe reported reported that they typically go with their parents to the vineyard. The Obamas’ arrival on the wealthy island will be their fourth visit since 2009. They missed a 2012 trip because of the presidential campaign.

The White House did not disclose where the Obamas will be staying. On previous trips, they rented a 28.5-acre estate called Blue Heron Farm, which was sold in December 2011 and is no longer available.

Some of the locals appear to be happy the first family is returning. Well, at least the business owners are. Plans are already in the works to buy a T-shirt at C’est la Vie and indulge in “Obamaritas” at Sharkey’s Cantina.

“We’re just pandering,” Sharkey’s owner JB Blau told the Globe. At least he’s honest.

Sean Federowicz, a real estate agent, told the Globe that the third week of August is the highest of high season, so there would be plenty to do, according to the Boston paper:


The Martha’s Vineyard Livestock Show and Fair, which Obama’s daughters have attended in the past, is Aug. 15-18. The Grand Illumination, an annual outdoor festival in Oak Bluffs, is slated for Aug. 14, and the Oak Bluffs annual fireworks show is scheduled for Aug. 16.

Harry Belafonte will be performing at an invitation only event at Dreamland theater on Aug 12, an event that’s being organized by Charles Ogletree, Obama’s former professor at Harvard Law School.

While Ogletree was with the Obamas at the White House Christmas party, he told the Globe he didn’t know if the presidential family would attend the Belafonte event.
