Before it had even started in earnest, the much-maligned vacation became a PR nightmare, after it emerged this morning that he and his wife took separate government jets to Martha's Vineyard just hours apart.
Michelle Obama was revealed to have arrived at the Massachusetts retreat, only 500 miles from Washington, four hours before her husband yesterday. ...
The extra transport to get the the First Lady to the island for only a few more hours of vacation time will have cost taxpayers thousands in additional expenses.
The costs related to Mrs Obamas solo trip mainly include the flight on the specially designed military aircraft she took instead of Air Force One, as well as any extra staff and Secret Service that had to be enlisted to go with her.
She would also have had her own motorcade from the airport to her vacation residence.

Thousands of unemployed waited overnight, camping out in their business suits and office heels and braving the tormenting heat in Atlanta to stand in line for a job fair Thursday. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.
These folks looked like they want to work for a living. The country is unraveling far more than Obummer thought it would. He is doomed. I don't see him being the Rat nominee in '12. I think he will resign.
"Let them eat airline food."
(Should I send this to John Semmens?)
Liberals like the Obama’s really just don’t get it do they?
Welcome to the Commie Pinko bull shit we thought we would never see.
I send myself back to a fun time to forget about today’s misery.
Barack's working hard for the nation And he needs another vacation Some golf would be nice And the pie he'll have twice As we endure This reeking Obamanation
Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 518 days as of August 20, 2011.
That’s just to rent the place. Doesn’t include food, etc for all the entertaining. Her separate Spain trip with so many of her friends/family in a 5 star hotel was worse. And to think he never had a job, just a short stint as a ‘present’ senator.
come on garjog,
If she was your shelf ass unAmerican wookie bride wouldn’t you do all you could to keep her at arms length?
Cpme on baby,
You take your own jet and you can take you momma and the brats with you too.
The obamas are intentionally provoking everyone’s ire.
Spending taxpayers money, getting in our face. Ignoring the black unemployment rate. Igniting class warfare. Everything with the goal of destroying our country and fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
Signing executive orders on his way out the door to Martha’s Vineyard instituting the immigration policy he wants: who needs congress?
Here he is a couple of weeks ago with La Raza as they urged him to go ahead and bypass congress: Yes YOU Can!
I think you need to include something about eating our peas in your poem.
Uuuuuhhh, it would sound so much better if the article said “..240 minutes...” instead of “...4 hours...”, doncha’ think? /s
Remember Africa...$800,000 down a rat hole...
They always compare the number of days Bush was on vacation on the ranch rather than dollars spent. It isn’t even in the same ballpark.
Pray for America
They get it but they just don’t care, it’s all about their personal satisfaction and screw everyone else. i think the Obamaa are getting a kick out of sticking their excesses in everyone’s eye.
Ed Henry (I think that's his name; the new Lib on FX News) is the worst!
Muslims don’t travel with their wives. That’s the real reason for two flights. The liar poses as a Christian.
