President Obama Plans $4 Million Hawaii Vacation During the Holidays, Says Report
Travelers Today ^ | November 30, 2012 | Katie McFadden

Now that he doesn't have to worry about campaigning, President Barack Obama is reportedly getting ready for a long Hawaiian vacation with his family over the holiday season. According to estimates, the trip will cost at least $4 million on the tax payers dime.

According to the Hawaii Reporter, President Obama is getting ready to take his annual holiday trip to Hawaii. The President, along with Michelle, his two daughters, Sasha and Malia, and even their dog Bo will be going on the trip in addition to a large security team. The trip will last 20 days from December 17 through January 6.

The Obamas will be able to enjoy the pristine beaches, beautiful blue oceans, and the friendliness of the locals, but according to the Hawaii Reporter, the locals and other Americans will be paying up for the vacation.

When Obama comes to town, restrictions are put in place for air, water and road travel, which means it's going to be difficult for the locals the travel for the holidays. Obama brings a caravan of at least 22 vehicles that travel through the small single-lanes of the town. He also brings along U.S. Secret Service agents and Navy Seals and the U.S. Coast Guard which are stationed in nearby canal and ocean waters. The spectacle makes it difficult for locals to get around and restricts them from areas that they are usually welcomed to.

To top off the controversy, the Hawaii Reporter says the trip, which will cost at least $4 million, will be covered by tax dollars from Hawaiians and federal taxpayers...

The country’s about to go over the fiscal cliff because reports indicate Obama will not give any ground on spending cuts in the negotiations, and in fact is demanding MORE spending, while Republicans are caving all over the place on tax hikes, and Obama’s going to run off to Hawai...i for 20 days and at a cost of $4 million to taxpayers? Really? This is another $4 million on top of the 4 bills he spent on the same trip last year mind you. But yeah, he’s the one between he and Romney who was most in touch with the middle class—because we all can relate to 20 day, $4 million vacations. How does this guy have any supporters left?

It must be nice to take a vacation costing the taxpayers $4,000,000 at the exact time that hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost and taxes skyrocket as Bath House Barry drives the nation off the fiscal cliff.

The Bible says the human heart is wicked above all things.

Obama's supporters are the least virtuousness among us. As long as they can murder children, get applause for their sexual sins, receive direct deposit checks, and take their 'revenge' on people they hate with a passion, they will support their Satanic 'god.'

Poor Barry and MO, still having to shtruggle to see how much taxpayer money they can spend in eight years. I’m certain they’ve set an eight year record in four years.

I’d like to know how he bought their new $34mm mansion or better yet, WHO bought it for for him.

Also, notice how the LSM won’t even mention it, yet I bet if Romney had a $10mm mansion they would have let us know on a daily basis about how rich and evil he was.

I could not detest these two reprobates anymore. FOR NOW their girls get a pass because they’re young just along for the ride, but ultimately, we know they’ll end up being carbon copies of the parents.

$4 million, 40%, or $1.6 million of which will have to be borrowed form China.

This bastard spends 1/3 his $11.9 million wealth on a vacation because he won't be paying for it, taxpayers will.

And the left won't mind.

By my math we could keep him there for a year for $72 million.

Let’s do it. By the end of a year the Hawaiians will be so sick of him they’ll be voting Republican.

They’re taking BO the dog?

Am I the only one who thinks that now that the moslem homopotus has been re-selected, BO will come to an untimely death?

(perhaps...BO-B-Q?)

I keep hoping when he’s jogging down the steps from AF-1 that he has a Gerald Ford moment.

Let’s be clear. Dear leader is not planning on spending $4 million on his family vacation. He is planning on taking a vacation where he will personally pay nothing while the taxpayer will pickup the tab for everything else. Cost is no object.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE ARMAGEDDON

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
Uses a teleprompter so well, it’s Jarrett can’t you tell
Soros and globalists like the show.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Hurtling over the fiscal cliff;
Michelle’s spending all she can, while still blaming the white man
Liberal fascism for sure.

Well there’s commies n muzzies n Benghazi but no worries
says the propaganda press ministry of spin;

Ayers n Davis Black Panthers n Operation Furious
Solyndra don’t forget Cloward Piven;

And the ruling class of corrupt Congress hacks are giddy all over again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
No birth documents to show, the Usurpers gotta go
Reggie Love is waiting under the mistletoe (oh no!).

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
ObambiCare they say is the “law of the land”;
Justice Roberts violated his oath, Barry Soetoro still smokes
And our troops keep dying in ‘Stan.

Now here is a man that has no concept of being an American. Did he ever have a Christmas tree in his home growing up? did his father ever take him to a ball game, eat hot dogs and sit with his glove on waiting for a flyball? We have an impostor who hates everything American including us

On the bright side I did go fishing this morning. I caught 2 nice German Brown trout, about 3 lbs. apiece. So at least I know where my next meal is coming from.

Nah, it isn't child abuse. Take those black chicks off the welfare dime. Then we''ll talk.
