As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

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

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.

  1. the mantra of the liberal elite: “do as I say, not as I do” Not sure how many of the 1%ers are sending their wives on $100,000 vacations.

  2. Will Moochelle’s alleged new LOVER, a secret service agent not assigned to her be an early traveler with her so that they can have some much needed ALONE time? Too bad Moochelle has to sneak out of the White House late at night in the cold of the winter to party with him or is it a her? Moochelle told Today a couple of weeks ago that she sneaks out of the WH more often than we think late at night.

    • Look who she’s stuck with? I think he’d prefer being at Man’s Country in Chicago than in HI with her. But then again; she’s no prize. Without the million dollar makeup jobs; false eyelashes and wigs, she’s pretty much of a beast!

        • You are so right about the latest Mrs. Gingrich!

          McCain’s wife- an outstanding woman- was very unfairly profiled by the NYT and others while Moochell received nothing but adoration. If Newt is the nominee then Callista is going to provide the Media with a lot to justifiably criticize.

    • Don’t think so! Name one that flew out early to a resort destination for an early start on vacation costing the taxpayers hundreds of thousands in extra costs. If she is so impatient or doesn’t want to fly with Barry; she can pay for all of it. This is the first His and Hers Jet Vacations I’ve heard of.

    • Ah! Every other president did the same thing. Hmmm…where did we hear that before? It wasn’t true then, and it’s certainly not true now.

      Mark, I’d agree with you but then we’d both be wrong!

  3. Big deal. This will be the Obamas 4th trip to Hawaii
    for Christmas since 2008. And tell us something
    that we already don’t know about these trips.
    Michelle and her husband were just in Hawaii
    about 3 weeks ago for that APEC summit.
    Hawai at Christmas been there done that ho-hum.

  4. It’s obvious they don’t care. Being the first black president elected, I thought just maybe Obama would try to be one of the great presidents ever. Now I wonder, after 300+ years of blacks getting screwed by whitey, if Obama’s motive is to just stick it back to whitey. He’ll always be a hero to the black community, so what would he care how he spends the taxpayers money. Up to this point, it’s obvious he doesn’t.

  5. This is gross abuse if the American people and the US government. The spouse of a president should be able to fly on the same plane when the president vacations. The use of a separate plane as this woman fequently demands must stop. I have written my congressional representative to introduce legislation to outlaw this practice.

  6. just think about how all these tens of millions could be helping our vets..it will prolly be a billion by the time he gets his walking papers..totally sad

  7. I can’t stand these people!!! They are living it up while everyone else is suffering. Now they are lying and saying that the unemployment is the lowest is three years —- tell the truth, the reason it is so low is because of the people who have used up their unemployment and now living on welfare. When are we going to take back our country and our freedoms??

  8. The Obamas can go anywhere in the world as far as I am concerned. Obama deserves a vacation after working hard with a do nothing congress.

    The Obamas go to Hawaii and all of you jealous people on this site will be paying for it. Ha Ha Ha Ha. Take that you racist jerks.

  9. Is this an example of the sacrifice that “The Bummers” are instructing the rest of the country to go through? YET ANOTHER VACATION to ease their weary, over-worked, selfish, troubled minds. I guess there is the chance that The First Pig won’t get the 49% fat content ribs she’d love to slather with Hi-Cal BBQ sauce, now that would be a sacrifice we could all relate to. I’m certain however, that “Fat Mouth” and “Little Barry” will find some way to satiate their enormous appetite for the oppulant life-style that neither of these dirtbag carpetbaggers, could afford if they were’nt on the public dole doing the jobs they’re really qualified for; Community Organizer and Has-Been lawyer. Enjoy your well deserved leisure time and don’t worry yourselves at all with thoughts of the Misery Index that you’ve created for your fellow countrymen and women. I’ll bet Hugo Chavez doesn’t, why should you start now? I’m absolutelyl sure that ending the Iraq War just in time for Christmas will fit into your re-election campaign perfectly, your so clever. I’m realizing that “Little Barry Bummer” does nothing for the right reasons. Happy Hanakah and Bon Voyage.

  10. No surprise that “let them eat cake” M. Obama could not delay the Hawaii vacation- again. The First Family has no concern about the taxpayer and have proven so with trips to Aspen, Africa, Spain, Martha’s Vineyard and many other places within the US. I can’t begin to imagine what we will be in for if they are re-elected a nd don’t have to worry about anmything except their lifetime pensionand Secret Service, and millions in speaking fees. I am sure they won’t mind being taxed as millionaires ( a la Bill Clinton).
    They are the most arrogant people I have ever see.

    • but they don’t “teach” anything useful at Harvard…
      its just a fancy piece of parchment that cost $XXX,XXX

      BTW? who paid for Barrack Hussein Obama to attend Harvard Law…? or Columbia?

    • theres no proof he went to harvard, theres no proof he even graduated grade school.if bush or any republician had hid all there records the loons would have been screaming and foaming at the mouth. of all people the president of the united states life should be an open book. liberal loons explain to me why this isnt impotant to no.even simple minded people as most liberals are should be concerned that this family is hideing something they dont want the american people to no.

  11. Where is the uproar? Why do we continually allow this to happen? Didn’t Barry just issue an Executive Order cutting back on travel? Who’s goiing to enforce that? If the Mooch wants to go ahead of Barry, she can darn well pay for all of it! Where does it say that We the People have to pay for her separate vacation – AGAIN!!!??? Didn’t Barry say he ‘felt our pain”? While many Americans are broke and continue to lose jobs, homes, savings, etc., these two arrogant, narcisstic buffoons vacation around the world on our dime. They are both despicable.

  12. michelle has been rumored to be having an affair with a secret service agent not assigned to the presidential detail (read the globe’s account). this might explain her travel sans lil barry.

  13. Mr. Koffler…
    Why can ‘We’, the lowly readers of “WhiteHouseDossier” come up with better ‘Questions & Issues’ to ask about FLOTUS Michelle’s $100,000+ Hawaii trip than the WH “press corps”…?
    It seems the WH “press corps” has no problems with FLOTUS Michelle flying around (on USAF planes with US Secret Service…) doing whatever She wants.
    Granted, Michelle “marie antoninette” Obama is truly the most arrogant, spoiled & out-of-touch ‘First Lady’ ever but I am curious why NO ONE in the “media” mentions that…

  14. I think your assessment of costs is extremely modest or someone didn’t giive you all the costs. What’s the cost of the ;lodging for the Obamas starting when she arrives? What is the lodging and related costs of the first ladies staff. Themilitary support is just the tip fo the iceberg. I fear it cost 4 to 5 times that if not far more. .

  15. Obama’s Osawatomie Kansas Speech on December 7,2011 primarily advocated the redistribution of wealth. Redistribution of wealth is the basis of Communism and Socialism.

    Charles Krauthammer graduated earning a Doctor of Medicine from Harvard Medical School in 1975, and went on to complete a residency in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. In 1984 he became board certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
    Dr. Krauthammer is probably the most respected and intelligent of all the political pundits on television.
    He said this article was an insult to Teddy Roosevelt, and it would be more appropriate to compare Obama to Hugo Chavez.

    If you desire to continue living in a free and democratic country. PLEASE get out and vote regardless of who the GOP nominee is. Turnout is the only thing that is going to stop BHO from changing this to a Communist State within the next five years, if he is reelected, we will be living in a bankrupt Communist state by 2016. As Ann Coulter said, Jeffery Dahmer would be better than what we have. This is going to be the most important election in the history of this United States, and it is going to be so close, that turnout will determine if we remain a democracy, or become a Communist state.

    “Communism is a philosophy of failure,
    The creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy
    Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
    Winston Churchill

  16. Dude,

    Those chi-chi drinks with the little umbrellas are expensive. A gal’s gotta have a little fun, hey?

    Luau time, y’all!

    Love from the Big Kahuna!

  17. Queen Michelle just cannot do without her lavish vacations. The Liberals and the MSM (same thing) would go nuts if say, oh, Laura Bush, did such a thing. Obama has just over one year in office left. After that he can pay for his own da*n vacations.

  18. Queen Michelle is worth any cost for her pleasure. Afterall, come 2013 she will be on her own. (Except for protection) These seperate trips costing the taxpayer extra seem to be the rule rather than the exception. Rubbing into the face of the taxpayers is the Obama Way !

  19. I like your picture John. Are your parents related…like you know…cousins. that would explain a lot of what you are saying.

    Is your name John Loser.

    Go Obama!!!!

  20. Why can’t she fly commercial like the rest of us? This is a disgrace, especially with a bankrupt country, unemployment nearing the highest in our history, families losing their homes and life savings – and these narcissistic elitists think they are above the fray – “Let them eat cake” Obamas! Well I say enough! Write a check to pay for this, it is not an expense of the tax payers!!!!!!

    • You mad bro? Now go pack your bags and head to the Greyhound bus station for your xmas trip.

      The Obamas will be travelling FIRST Class on your dime. ha ha ha.

      LOSER

  21. Somehow, someway, something is not right in the Obama household. What wife would leave early for another vacation without her husband. Loyalty to a cause would deem it necessary to provide an united front against criticism like this trip will cause.
