No mention is made as to the number of 'guests' and relatives on Ms. Obama's AF2 or of the number and names of Obama's campaign advisers etc. on his plane. Making Hawaii his 'home' is clearly reparations for this man and his dislike of all things American except for what he and his wife can glean for themselves.

It would be cheaper to just buy him a house over there and let him stay. Don’t come back!

His folks will just laugh this off as Obama sticking it to the man.

If a republican president were taking expensive vacations while the country suffers he or she would be burned at the stake!

Obama works out at Semper Fit gym on the base next door.
During his workout, only active duty are allowed to use the facilities.
My brother, who is retired after more than 25 years in the service, and who works out daily at the gym, was told he could not work out while Obama was there.
He raised a stink with the Secret Service, and they finally let him in.
I am very worried that Obama will buy a home in my hometown of Kailua. He will ruin beach access.
He needs to stay in Chicago.

“... if a Republican president were taking expensive vacations...”

Can you imagine what a field day the press would have? Interviews with people thrown out of their home, visits to soup kitchens, interviews with poor children wanting a warm coat.... it would be a media massacre. Sounds from the media now.....crickets, crickets.

I really, really hope the RNC or the Republican nominee run ads on the hypocrisy of Barry and the Democrats. The number of and the costs of these vacations are counter to what they charge those of us who actually scrimp and save (and forego vacations) to make ends meet. Absolute hypocrisy!

Noted that staffers are staying at the Moana Surfrider...aside from the Halekulani (my favorite hotel in the world), that's as pricey as you can get on Waikiki.

Spare no expense, guys - it's only taxpayer money.

No wonder there was such a screw-up over the “shovel-ready jobs.” Unlike these guys, Obama doesn’t even know what a shovel is.

Re your pics of Reaan and GWB with saws:

You can tell they’re genuine, not staged photos by looking at the chainsaws. The bars have both been used and the paint worn off.

If it were a politically staged picture of the sort that we’re becoming all too familiar with, the chain saw bars would have been perfectly spanking clean, and the saws likely never started.

So, the taxpayers must cover the costs for housing U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Coast Guard and Navy Seals in beach front and canal front homes in Kailua.

They deserve it a lot more than the Obamas do.

There is no chance that 0bama will live in Chicago after he completes his “fourth best Presidency in history.” The 0bamas have stayed in their Chicago house for a grand total of two days since he was elected. Now, when he visits for a fund-raiser, he stays in a hotel. Meanwhile, his house has around-the-clock security. I have a feeling that when 0bama is done, like the Clintons, it will be a rare day that Michelle and he are in the same town together.

He´s probably going to go home to Indonesia and present himself for Secy Genl of the UN from Indonesia (a member of teh Security Council, such as the US, cannot present a Secy Genl).

Aside from that, I notice the reporter is named Malia Zimmerman. I think one of Bambi´s daughters is named Malia, a rather weird name that I thought was supposed to sound sort of African. Is this a Hawaiian thing, or is there some leftwing heroine named Malia that they name their kids after?

Kings and Dictators spend this kind of money on themselves not Presidents because Presidents are answerable to The People.

Can’t wait for 2012 election.

Navy SEALS? Since when do Navy SEALS provide presidential security? You'd never see a Special Forces guy doing that! Especially with the current denizen of the WH.

They always said one of the reasons that the press hated W was that they would much rather travel to Martha's Vinyard than Crawford.

Americans feel the pinch.

I know I take fewer holidays, and shorter ones. I end up taking a vacation closer to home ... or just staying home.

They are out of touch.
