Michelle’s Solo Hawaii Trip Likely to Exceed $100,000

by Keith Koffler on December 15, 2011, 11:49 am

First lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.

The military jet flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

The total tab will certainly be in excess of $100,000, and possibly quite a bit more.

Nobody can deny that Obama has been a complete failure to America. and his wife MOOCHIE thinks she has a unlimited vacation spending budget on the tax payers dime ———-
The First Lady has taken 42 days of vacation in the past year, including a $375,000 vacation in Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel. The first family’s nine-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard
was also costly, with rental of the Blue Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week. ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines. ‘The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a vacation junkie. She can’t schedule enough vacation getaways, and she lives from one to the next – all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans. Michelle Obama’s family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group. The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, and that doesn’t include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members which included her daughters listed as “Senior Staff” so the tax payers would pick up the tab for them in addition Michelle also listed her Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist as “Staff Memnbers” so the taxpayers would have to pay for there trip and all expenses — you gotta love it MOOCHIE never quits spending our tax dollars — no wonder she was Booed at the NASCAR event — Michelle acts like she is Marie Antoinett “Let them not eat cake while I drink Sparkling wine and eat Lobster”

Last year the Obama’s Christmas trip to Hawaii cost more than $1 million. He covered the cost of his family’s accommodation, but the rest was covered by the taxpayers. The bill to house Secret Service agents and Navy Seals in beach front accommodation stretched to $16,800. A further hotel bill of $134,400 covered 24 White House staff staying in the Moana Hotel at a rate of $400 a day. The estimate, by the Hawaii Reporter, also included $250,000 for local police overtime, $1 million for the president’s own round trip flight to Hawaii on Air Force One, and $10,000 for a local ambulance to accompany the presidential motorcade, and once again Moochies Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist were counted as her “White House Staff Members”

President Obama has spent all or part of 26 days “on vacation” during his first year as president.
President Reagan, in 1981, spent all or part of 42 days away from the White House “on vacation” at his home in Santa Barbara, Calif, according to Knoller.
President George W. Bush spent even more time away from the presidential mansion in the nation’s capital than Reagan. Of the 77 total “vacation” trips the former president made to his Texas ranch while in office, nine of them — all or part of 69 days — came during his first year as president in 2001,

In addition to last year’s costs, we have to add that the back-up plane was parked in Hilo, Hawaii. It was used by Nancy Pelosi and her entourage when they went to Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. All of those costs for transportation, lodging, food and security must also be added. For this year’s Christmas trip, I would imagine that the backup plane would be similarly situated since Hilo, Hawaii has a military base as part of the airport. Who is flying on the backup plane has not been disclosed, but I would suspect it would be someone in the line of succession.

If you research it you will see that M Obama did not list her kids as senior staff ect. But that was taken from the official Air Force manifest. When the Air force flies VIPs on their passenger planes they break down the personnel manifest according to importance. You are either senior staff or staff. The military has forms and SOPs for every thing . And you will fit neatly into one of the provided boxes. No creating a new box for ” kids of a VIP” . The AF was merely accounting for everyone aboard the plane according to importance. More Obama derangement syndrome.

You realize this is all part of the fundamental change Obama promised. You can’t collapse the economy without spending every dollar you can.

I have been thinking about who Michelle is trying to imitate, and I finally figured it out. Think Madame Ceausescu, wife of Communist leader that ruled Rumania until the regime collapsed in 1989. They escaped in a helicopter, then his fellow Communists deserted him, they were captured and executed Dec. 25, 1989. Some now say they were shot, but when this happened, the word was they were stoned to death by the people they oppressed.

What is the appeal about these two? It’s obviously a sham marriage, their policies benefit the rich and wall street, and they want to destroy the middle class. Sure, they’ll do some things for the real poor, but mostly it’s just to gain control. Once there’s no independent, working class to interfere, where’s the limit on their power?

Feet on desks, trips, escaping to Target, etc., they try to act as if the Presidency is a bothersome and embarrassing necessity that they must endure while The One exercises his genius on this musty old nation.

Considering Michelle’s previous comments about America and Americans, maybe she feels that all the perks she’s been given, and those she’s taken, are a form of reparations. Her comment earlier this year that she hates life in the White House is clearly reflective in the frequency of her expensive vacations. Waste in government takes many forms.

I believe there is a component of the AfAm “community” that likes to see other blacks “livin’ large” and views it as proving something — I don’t understand quite what this could be — but it is a form of over-identification with other people who have genes from Africa.

The One and The Wife seem to enjoy performing this part of their role in the White House.

Nobody can deny that Obama has been a complete failure to America. and his wife MOOCHIE thinks she has a unlimited vacation spending budget on the tax payers dime ———-
The First Lady has taken 42 days of vacation in the past year, including a $375,000 vacation in Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel. And the first family’s nine-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard
is also proving costly, with rental of the Blue Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week.
‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.
‘The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a vacation junkie. She can’t schedule enough vacation getaways, and she lives from one to the next – all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans.
Michelle Obama’s family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group. The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, said the group, and that doesn’t include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members which included her daughters listed as “Senior Staff” so the tax payers would pick up the tab for them in addition Michelle also listed her Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist as “Staff Memnbers” so the taxpayers would have to pay for there trip and all expenses —
you gotta love it MOOCHIE never quits spending our tax dollars — no wonder she was Booed at the NASCAR event last weekend — Michelle acts like she is Marie Antoinett “Let them not eat cake while I drink Sparkling wine and eat Lobster”

Last year the Obama’s Christmas trip to Hawaii cost more than $1 million.
He covered the cost of his family’s accommodation, but the rest was covered by the taxpayers.
The bill to house Secret Service agents and Navy Seals in beach front accommodation stretched to $16,800.
A further hotel bill of $134,400 covered 24 White House staff staying in the Moana Hotel at a rate of $400 a day.
The estimate, by the Hawaii Reporter, also included $250,000 for local police overtime, $1 million for the president’s
own round trip flight to Hawaii on Air Force One, and $10,000 for a local ambulance to accompany the presidential
motorcade.

No worries, Moochelle, because the American people have a big fat bank account to support your lavish vacations. If we run short we can always borrow from China or just raise taxes again. Have fun!

I suspect that she’s going now to make the most of her last vacation, paid by ME and my fellow TAXPAYERS. My thinking is that next Christmas she’ll be packing many cardboard boxes getting ready for the big move back to Chicago!! Bwah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…….

Unfortunately I am sorry to say he will be elected to a second term, they are just simply going to steal the election.

I believe you’re partially correct (I hope). The only error you’ve made is suggesting this will be her last vacation. Plenty of time to squeeze in 2 or 3 more before she (hopefully) has to pack her stuff.

Sorry – last Christmas vacation.

Bob, DC and Franksam, I’m pretty confident they’ll be moving, but I’m not taking anything for granted so I talk this up with friends face to face and through social media, explaining ‘why’ this is such an important election and barry’s lies (…and the media’s love affair with him).

But that said I’m honestly dumbfounded that so many of my friends from NJ still fall for his lies – during the last Presidental election one gal voted against McCain because of the ‘insight’ from Chris Rock about McCain’s houses. I kid you not.

327 and counting.

I can’t believe all of you clever people can not figure out what is going on here. The POTUS and his lovely wife NEVER make a move without having it thoroughly mulled over by the dark seethes. They choose the lesser of two evils. You see, I think their individual entourages are so huge they actually need two planes. Most can equate it with a large family vacation in which the wife and husband take separate cars for convenience.
The Pres and his wife just have a lot more to take, like 6 limos, full set of individual staffers, and security for each, the girls, omg this could on for a week. Let’s not forget their friends.
But how would that actually go over?? So you see, it’s just easier to make up an excuse to warrant separate travel, like Congress is inhibiting the Presidents efforts, I’ll catch up with you in a day. Even their supporters might get slightly pissed off to find out they travel in such opulence separate transports are required. This is not the first occurrence of their travel habits. Why on Earth would they do it again after the uproar over Martha’s Vineyard?

How can someone who doesn’t have a job take so many vacations? Her husband was elected, she was not. Has the position of First Lady become a paid position? She has 26 attendants working for her, on our dime of course, but is she getting paid too?

On one vacation to Marthas Vinyard the dog had it’s own plane too. Now will we be paying for their trainer to fly daily to Hawaii as we do now for him to fly to DC.

I don’t believe the cost of her flying is only $60,000. Another lie by “government estimates”. That’s how much a small private plane costs to fly from LA to Hawaii. She’s not going to be on any small anything.The cost of AF1 is over $187,000 per hour to operate. How many hours from DC to Hawaii? Her travel costs us in the millions. $60,000 is more like her catering bill on her plane ride! I’m sure she’s bringing mom and another relative or friend or two also.

My guess is there isn’t enough room on AF1 for the party animals to transport both of their entourages, so they need to take separate planes. Heaven knows our royalty certainly can’t be expected to tighten Mooch’s boob belt by sacrificing a day or two of vacation time or taking fewer attendants to conserve a few extra tax dollars. The Obama’s must realize how much middle America despises them for their excesses. Problem is they don’t care…
