Obama Brings Mother-in-Law, Niece to Africa

by Keith Koffler on June 26, 2013, 9:27 am

In a move that can only fuel charges that his week-long trip to Africa is a de facto vacation, President Obama is taking his mother-in-law Marian Robinson and niece Leslie Robinson with him on Air Force One, which departed the United States this morning. Leslie is the daughter of First Lady Michelle Obama’s brother Craig.

Obama is already being accompanied by Mrs. Obama and their daughters Sasha and Malia. It’s not clear if other family members got aboard the presidential jet this morning. The press pool reporter, who eyed the Obama relatives, doesn’t mention any.

The Obamas have been criticized for the massive expense of the trip, which reportedly could reach up to $100 million. Obama was ridiculed when news surfaced that he had been contemplating a safari that would have required Secret Service agents to act as snipers in case animals tried to attack the first family.

The White House says the excursion is an important step toward building democracy and advancing U.S. strategic interests in Africa.

The press pooler slyly noted that Bo did not make the cut for the trip.

This has nothing to do with color. It has everything to do with experience and qualifications. Being the President of the USA should not be an on the job learning experience where you just make crap up as you go along. It has become blatantly obvious over the last 4 plus years that this man has no clue what he doing and is not nor ever was qualified for the job. He is a failure as a leader. Really all this does is make the Democrats look like the racists based on the fact that most of OBamas voter base voted for him because he is black, not because they thought he was highly qualified. This was the plan all along. Obama could be an ex felon born in Communist China and nobody would care. The fact that he was black gave minorities something to believe in and his resume or lack there of did not matter to any of them. He was the perfect candidate at the perfect time for the Dumbocrats.

So let’s see, the Obamas, the hangers on, the hairdresser, 155 aides, 155 Secret Service people, 30 limousines, an aircraft carrier, 500 business people and the President is going to see if we can make a deal for African Oil………. a “bang for our buck” trip to explore “development of economic trade”. Wow. That would be very impressive if we were not giving over $400,000,000 a year to South Africa, $300,000,000 a year to Zambia, $50,000,000 a year to Tanzania, etc to the tune of BILLIONS in Aid to African countries each and every year for decades. One word for this trip: Boondoggle.

Don’t worry, Obama has a fat wad of cash in his pocket. Unfortunately it’s just a hundred wrapped around a bunch of old crinkled up singles…

There aren’t any, they are apparently in drag now, being what they really are. If there was any in the government NOBAMA would never have taken us this far under. NOBAMA would never have been elected if we had any politicians that could stand up and say I am AN AMERICAN AND I WON”T STAND FOR THIS.

I hope when this man is finally out of office, someone tallies the total cost to the citizens of his, and his family’s, vacations. It undoubtedly will be in the hundreds of millions.

I don’t think we can actually call them the first family for real, as they are in office illegally like their counterparts that cross into the US illegally.

Okay, so Sasha and Malia aren’t guilty of TREASON, just aiding and abetting. Bo is in this through no fault of his own, so he’s free to go. But Obama, Michelle, Holder, and Clinton are guilty as sin for Treason and should be tried and executed.

Only a complete idiot would not believe this is yet another vacation for this wasteful family. Besides destroying this country, Obummer and his gorilla wife looked at the attainment of the office of president as their right to take endless vacation and golfing trips.

Most DemoMarxists could care less that Obama is using tax money to fund his sumptuous vacays and taking not only his family but his extended family as well. And where is the LAME congress allowing this POTUS to fleece We-The-People…It has never been a right for a POTUS to have an UNLIMITED Peoples’ Bank Roll…..this is egregious, but the left here in Seattle and elsewhere are absolutely clueless as Obama is their sinless Messiah. But talk about Bush…and they know EVERYTHING.

Don’t all U.S. Government workers get taxpayer funded vacations. Just got back from a vacation trip with my Grandkids in Wyoming and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Saw several cars of vacationing families in cars with US Government license plates. Really ticked me off.

You should make note of the license plates and report that to your local federal office.
