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.

I cannot say enough negative things about Mizzuz Stinky, though. The behavior of this entitlement queen is out of control, off the scale. We middle-class taxpayers, makers not takers, are suffering.

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.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
