Michelle to Remain in Hawaii,
Costing Taxpayers Over $100K

White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/26/2012 12:05:19 PM

President Obama will return to Washington from Hawaii Thursday while First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters plan to continue their vacation, adding at least $100,000 and probably more than $200,000 to taxpayer costs for the excursion. Instead of accompanying her husband home on Air Force One, Mrs. Obama will fly on her own Air Force jet at a later date and require security and staff to remain in place in Hawaii for the length of her stay, which reportedly could extend until January 6.

Comments:
"Whatever Moochie wants, Moochie gets..."

And that is just for the flights - which could end up being more. Koffler gives an estimate of the various costs involved that takes them to more than twice the $100,000 in the headline. He´s good, but it is probably much, much, Mooch more. Especially if she stays longer than estimated.

The average social security check is about $1,230 (according to SSA website).

That $100,000 would cover a bit more than 81 months of checks - almost 7 years!

and yet the media is already spinning this story as Obama´s "sacrifice" - leaving his family vacation early to deal with those nasty Republicans.

Yup, elections have consequences.

I think that they have rented that house for 20 days, so most of the vacation remains ahead. I think that the President will return to Hawaii next week, so the additional cost for Air Force One will be alot more than $100k.

Article: If Obama strikes an early deal on the fiscal cliff and then returns to Hawaii to finish up his vacation, the tab for taxpayers would be extraordinary. Air Force One costs about $180,000 an hour to fly, and the roundtrip taxpayer-funded ticket for the nine-hour flight would amount to about $3.24 million.

What´s money to King Obamameia, Divine Ruler of the Hawaiian Islands. Obamameia & Queen Moochalotta will bestow their blessings on us, and we will be eternally grateful and forever poorer for this. Or, King Obamameia wears the royal leis while we get royally screwed.

I can´´t think of single reason the president needs to rush back to DC. He can conduct negotiations via video teleconference technology available in any Fed Bldg and probably thru AF 1. This is all political theatre; a stunt to make it look like he´s really doing something when he´s really not except wasting money.

So the most repulsive first lady in history, her family, and her surly, leech-like handholding daughters are going to remain in Hawaii. Heaven help us if we don´t realize how much they´ve earned and deserve yet another a vacation and that adding another few hundred thousands should be of no consequence, or none of the business of the taxpayers.

There isn´t a category where anyone could stuff this bow-legged, classless, money-sucking boor. One can only hope that she´s spared the media any shots of herself in a bikini. I don´t want blind if I encounter them by accident.

As a school superintendent, you’re typically measured by a few numbers. Test scores, graduation rates, crime rates, finances, gaps in student achievement, and perhaps a few other metrics, depending on your board of education. You can actually tackle these problems, or you can employ the dark art of data manipulation.

President Barack Obama’s appearance on funnyordie.com’s parody show “Between Two Ferns,” where he took mock questions from comic Zach Galifianakis, was a lot of things: funny, unusual, an intriguing way to sell Obamacare and very popular.

KABC-TV reports Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were moving out of their apartment Sunday when they noticed the toddler and his sister throwing their toys out the window. When they saw the little boy throw his leg over the window sill, Konrad rushed to put the mattress down. He was able to break the child’s fall, placing him onto the mattress.

California public health officials say 19 of the 32 cases of measles they have confirmed so far this year are in people who had not been vaccinated, and of that group, 14 were intentionally not vaccinated. As the number of measles cases continues to grow across the state — there were only three by this time last year — officials at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have urged parents against opting out of vaccinating their children. They say an increase in the number of people choosing not to vaccinate could drive a resurgence of the respiratory disease, since

VILNIUS, Lithuania—Vice President Biden’s we’re-all-in-this together tour of Eastern Europe, a two-country stop that concludes here Wednesday, has highlighted not only the growing regional anxieties over Russia’s designs on Ukraine but also how much work the Obama administration has to do to convince allies of its support. At its core, Biden’s message here and in Poland was a simple reaffirmation of what one senior administration official called a “bedrock commitment”: The United States would honor NATO’s basic premise that if one member nation is attacked, all would come to its defense.

Biden, whose tendancy toward gaffes is well known, served as chairman from 2001 to 2003; Poland joined NATO in 1999. “Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” Biden said in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday during a visit to reassure allies as Russia moved to annex Crimea.(Snip) Former Sen.

SEVASTOPOL/MOSCOW--The United States warned Moscow it was on a "dark path" to isolation on Wednesday after Russian troops backed by unarmed volunteers stormed Ukraine´s naval headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol and raised their flag.

"As long as Russia continues on this dark path, they will face increasing political and economic isolation," said U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, referring to reports of

Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W.

Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome.

Vice President Biden told healthcare workers that "patience and empathy" are required to deal with frustrated ObamaCare enrollees and that the president demonstrated saint-like levels of both during the rollout. Speaking to a conference of community health centers in New York, Biden conceded that enrolling in ObamaCare could be "tedious," and early problems with HealthCare.gov worsened the problem. "We didn´t help you much at the front end here, man," Biden said, adding that he wanted to recommend President Obama "for sainthood" because he maintained his patience through the early technical problems with the website.

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
