Skip to comments.Report: Obama Family's Africa Trip Will Cost $60 to $100 Million
Posted on 06/14/2013 10:39:29 AM PDT by ColdOne
You may not be able to tour the White House because of the spending increase slowdown from sequestration, but the Obama family can tour Africa for the small sum of $60 or $100 million.
President Barack Obama will hold bilateral meetings with leaders in Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania between June 26 and July 3, and the wife and kids are going along for the ride.
The Obama family vacation will include air transportation for 56 vehicles, among them 14 parade limousines, trucks carrying bulletproof glass to install at hotels, and two ambulances: one for dealing with biological and chemical contaminants, one with x-ray equipment.
Adding to the costs are 100 Secret Service Agents for the first three cities on the itinerary, 65 agents at the fourth, and 80 to 100 more to guard the Obama family 24/7.
Further, a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier functioning as a hospital comes with the package, and fighter jets will patrol the area 24/7.

It would be well worth it if we could leave him there.
good thing we’re not broke or anything.
Or, refuse re-entry until he provides the proper paperwork.
And, how many "lotteries" have they won since 2009?
Boehner: if you or any of your people are listening...
DEFUND THESE BASTARDS TODAY.
This doesn’t even include the costs of keeping the Secret Service Agents, well..... serviced.
I heard the trip got cancelled. The First Wookie got to feeling very uneasy about it when she found out a troop of snipers would be out there to protect the Messiah from ‘wild animals’.
Two...one in November 2008 and one in November 2012
I remember when the MSM criticized Bush for too many vacations in Kennebunkport....even though the Bushes OWNED the home they stayed in.
Now include all of the multi-million tax-free vacations for him and the missus.
To be sure.....a more worthless, do-nothing pair ever existed. Tyrant 101, lie cheat steal, get elected, hire dogma-rabidized minions, partay!
Are the White House tours running yet?
How many miles of border fence would this $$ build?
Will the aircraft carrier be awarded a special dispensation for fuel?
Inquiring minds want to know......
He might as well go to Africa. He acts like an African dictator so he will feel right at home among his fellow dictators.
Unconscionable. Still if the obamas were to get lost in the savannah.....
So we’re borrowing $$$$ from China to pay for this trip? Yeah, that makes sense.
NO RE-ENTRY. HE GOES THERE, HE STAYS THERE. TA-TA OBA-MA
How many hungry, homeless children . . .
I live in Boehner’s district and have made my call to his DC office and sent an email. Having worked in a Congressman’s office in my youth, I know they do keep track of the incoming communications - it’s a good measure of ho hot people are and whether they really need to do anything. They need to know we are more than ticked - this out of control spending on Obama travel has to stop.
