All Wisconsin gets from the coward in chief is an airport pit stop? Kiss Wisconsin buh bye, Buhrock…

He’s going to be cranky coming home after his bedtime.

Girly1 October 31, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Looks like another $4-5M bill for taxpayers! Where is the MOOCH? How much is she costing us this week?

Shofar November 1, 2012 at 7:11 am

Actually today’s trip is only 3,976 miles and cost $1,313,937.88 for AF1. That doesn’t include any other related expenses, so you are probably close with the additional costs.

It’s good to be the king.

RT October 31, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Lots of hugs and kisses going around. Our President is certainly focused and locked on. 6 more days!

FLDemFem October 31, 2012 at 10:17 pm

So he got New Jersey cleaned up and all those people into new homes with their lost property replaced already?? That was fast!! Oh, what.. you mean those things aren’t done yet?/ Didn’t he say he was going to focus on the recovery like a laser or something?? I guess he is focusing from AF-1. And an interesting pattern is starting to emerge, at least for me. Anyone notice that he is going to Vegas again? He did that after Benghazi too, didn’t he?

nellyq October 31, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Yessss–one wonders what the attraction of Las Vegas is. . .exactly what is staying in Vegas?

Scottso October 31, 2012 at 10:28 pm

NJ to DC to Wisconsin to Nevada to colorado to Ohio.
doesn’t he ever get jet lag?

on a personal note,
i can’t wait to vote for Obama…
well, i’ll vote for Romney but we all know the button somehow switches to Obama.

Sadie October 31, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Beware of Ohio buttons. In fact, be wary of all the buttons. I’ll be very careful Tuesday here in Pa.

RT November 1, 2012 at 12:32 am

Not to worry, no hanging chads with buttons! :)

Sashtienne November 1, 2012 at 2:09 am

Ohio is already reporting that electronic votes for Romney are being tallied as Obama votes–WORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Swedishlady November 1, 2012 at 5:11 am

Obama praises one Bob Menendez in the video above. Is that the person that, according to the Daily Caller, was involved with prostitutes when in Dominican Republic ? If the accusations are true that is one slimy person. Talk about war on women.

Girly1 November 1, 2012 at 8:16 am

It’s the same Bob Menendez, Swedishlady. He is the junior Senator from New Jersey who replaced the disgraced Jon Corzine. According to the prostitute, she was promised $500 but was only paid $100. Never trust a Democrat! Same thing happened with Obama’s SS agents – they tried to cheat the working girls!

Menendez has a good defense, however. He is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. All in a day’s work!

Susan November 1, 2012 at 9:25 am

As Rush Limbaugh has said before, things like this are resume enhancements for a Democrat politician. They are career-enders for Republicans.

Shofar November 1, 2012 at 7:02 am

Cost of AF1 for October 2012 and YTD:

This is using the POTUS schedule posted on WHD, and the costs are based on cost reported by USA Today and the UK Daily Mail in 2010, if there is any change in the cost, I apologize, but it will not be that significant. Further, miles are based on from major airport to major airport, and DO NOT include any support aircraft, ground transportation, or other travel related expenses. During campaign events, the campaign is expected to reimburse the government for the cost of a first class ticket, but that in no way covers the actual cost of this travel.
That said, here we go.

Total miles traveled October, 2012 = 22,434 miles
October Cost for AF1 = (22,434 /550 avg. air speed of AF1) * $181,757 p/hr for AF1 = $7,413,702.79
YTD cost AF1: YTD miles: 143,453 domestic 35,110 international = 178,563 miles
(178,563 /550 avg. air speed of AF1) * $181,757 p/hr for AF1 = $59,009,227.62

Shofar November 1, 2012 at 7:05 am

Oh, and I will add that the YTD cost just of AF1 is almost equal to the entire yearly cost of maintaining the British Royal family.

Girly1 November 1, 2012 at 7:45 am

Thanks, Shofar….these figures are staggering. When you take into consideration the hidden costs of MO, Granny, and the kids, we must be in the BILLIONS over the past four years. Wherever these people travel, there are dozens of military back-up aircraft, cargo planes, choppers, limos, 40 vehicle caravans, ground personnel, hotels, food, etc. AF1 and 2 are equipped with a functioning hospital and medical staff, The list goes on,

The Obamas are our biggest liability, Their board and keep has cost us more than the GDP of most European countries. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re in for another 4 years of profligate spending.

Just2old November 1, 2012 at 7:47 am

Thanks Shofar. Amazing numbers and that doesn’t include maintenance/upkeep of the aircraft.

AZ Granny November 1, 2012 at 10:07 am

Thanks for all your hard work, Shofar. It’s good to know what our costs are but it sure gets my blood boiling rather early in the day.

IF Obama reimburses taxpayers I’d be surprised. His campaign has been stiffing cities and venues all across America.

Sadie November 1, 2012 at 11:03 am

Ditto Shofar. Outstanding work.

DeniseVB November 1, 2012 at 8:25 am

I don’t think Obama’s final campaign push is going to be very effective while the news keeps covering the deteriorating conditions of Sandy’s destruction. People are still stranded in flooded areas, power’s still out for thousands and the “red tape” still seems to be strangling them.

The fake situation room and Christie photo ops don’t mean a thing to those still suffering loss :(

Just2old November 1, 2012 at 8:56 am

Denise, obama doesn’t care about “folks”. His only care right now is getting reelected.

Girly1 November 1, 2012 at 10:50 am

New Jersey is not in play. If ‘Sandy’ had struck Ohio, Obama would have cancelled the election.
