Midnight Flight to Hawaii. Round-trip
cost of president´s return trip:
$3.6 million

The Weekly Standard, by Daniel Harper

Original Article

Posted By:Scouts Out, 1/2/2013 11:00:20 AM

After Congress agreed temporarily to avert the "fiscal cliff" last night, President Barack Obama hailed the deal in brief remarks delivered from the White House, and then headed to Air Force One to take a midnight flight to Hawaii. Obama had left his family days earlier to return to Washington to deal with the "fiscal cliff."

Does anyone care about the US economy as much as Our Hero, The Eternal President Obama? His caring knows no bounds, so much does He care, and care some more. The more He spends, the more He cares - it´s like a miracle.

This is the most uncaring insensitive president ever. And now that he doesn´t have to worry about another election, get ready for Michelle and her extravagant vacations!

I am so tired of being worried all the time. My husband has lost his second job this past year and I had to let my health insurance go because of premiums being doubled. I have had no raise for going on three years. I am trying to figure out how to pay bills, buy groceries and purchase our long term medication on my small salary. With the obamacare disaster just around the corner things are not going to get any better. This "deal" accomplishes nothing except extend the dems love of tax, spend, buy votes with goodies. And the so called president gives two snarky statements and then flies off to Hawaii. Why in the world voters put him back into office instead of on a permanent Hawaii vacation is a mystery.

Interesting. I read in another outlet the total cost of Obama´s Royal Progress to Hawaii was $7 Million. But then, perhaps they were including the cost of the first trip, plus his melodramatic reappearance in Washington.

Whatever, as Gen X likes to say.

He uses that 747 like a taxi cab.

Why?

1) Because he can and 2) he doesn´t have to pay the tab.

Arrogant, shameless, and narcissistic to the max.

Our children and grandchildren will be paying the tab for him and our feckless Congress on both sides who have wrecked our beloved country - morally, spiritually, economically, and socially.

We need to start over.

Obama is just another celebrity for the low information pop culture voter, who actually admires and participates vicariously in the extravagant lifestyle. What´s the use of being a celebrity if you don´t get and flaunt the perks? Obama´s fans would lose respect for him if he behaved like a non-celebrity. And for the Left wing "mainstream" media it is still a case of hear, see and speak no evil of the man they made president.

Please know that as a god on earth, that Lord Obama does not require an aircraft to travel to Hawaii. He only flies on AF1 at $180,000 per hour so that the mere mortals who support him can get there as well.

True cost of trip is surely in the $35 to $45 million range, since an enormous WH staff, including chefs, Secret Service contingents*, communication teams, national security teams and Air Force transports with crews travel with him. While Obama will spend most of his time golfing with his Choom Gang, the approximately 500 to 700 people supporting him need rooms, meals, transport, etc..

* - Val Jar has her own 8-12 person SS detail, plus 24/7 limo, and staff. She is Obama´s brain, not withstanding fact that he is a god.

#4 I know of no one who is optimistic or happy about the future. And to think there is at least 4 more years of this bleakness and feeling of dread. Possibly more than 4 years and really little hope of reversing things. In a real world and a just world people such as those who populate the left would be tarred and feathered and shunned by society. All I can say is just hang in there.

As a retired Aviator who once ran a charter outfit I find the outrageous figure to transport an alien anywhere to make me want to go back to work.
Why we would have boxed the thing up and sent it by ground transport and frieghter to it´s final resting place.
Of course we would not have suffered the feral secreting servicers reveries disbursements. Hos and blo are expensive these days. That alone would save millions.

The next time it, le undocumented alien curtseying bath house queen, needs to shipped somewhere call us. We could save the working American taxpayers millions.

One caveat: We do not handle sasquatches period.
I am somewhat surprised that the air force does, but then I am an ex-Marine.

Agreed, actual all-up cost must be far higher.

Too bad the Enemedia hide those costs, and the New Media haven´t really dug them out and publicized them.

Remember this is a $1.4 billion [at least] per-year White House. Spent on a usurper who isn´t in office legally.

Jesse Jackson was on America’s Newsroom today to discuss gun control. Jackson said assault weapons are a threat to national security. Jackson also said gun manufacturers should be held responsible for shootings.“These semi-automatic weapons, these assault weapon, can only kill people and in fact are threats to national security. The young man who did the killing in Aurora, Colorado with the arsenal he had. He was right near the airport, right near the runways near the airport in Denver. He could shoot down airplanes. so this is a matter of homeland security… We need to make manufacturers more accountable for their product.“

Beware: ObamaCare’s now reality

Posted By: Scouts Out- 11/13/2012 11:44:43 AM     Post Reply
President Obama’s re-election and Democratic gains in the US Senate end any possibility of repealing the Obama health law. It will roll out as written, imposing major changes soon on you and your family. If you are uninsured because you can’t afford it, help may be on the way. But if you are one of the 250 million Americans with coverage, there are big problems ahead. If you get your health insurance through a job, you might lose it as of Jan. 1, 2014. That’s when the new “employer mandate” kicks in, requiring employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide the government-designed health plan or pay a fine. The government plan is so expensive, it adds $1.79 per hour to the cost of a full-time employee. That’s incidental if you're hiring neurosurgeons but a hefty increase for hiring busboys and sales clerks.

Gluttons of greed,” the Obama campaign's dramatic voice over says. “And the evil genius who towered over them?” The video shows a silhouette of the large feathered creature from Sesame Street: “Big Bird,” Romney says. The announcer moves in for the kill: "Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street. Mitt Romney. Taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
