[snip] Already Obama, just back from a trip with his family and a huge entourage of staff to several African nations, has run up a $15.2 million bill just for Air Force One in the first six months of 2013. Security and hotel costs can dwarf the jet's cost. Some estimates of the president's Africa trip alone top $100 million.
NTUF's Douglas Kellogg told Secrets that Obama's Africa Air Force One bill to taxpayers was $6,654,345.
But unlike those costs which are hard to estimate and often kept secret, Air Force One costs can be calculated based on published hourly figures provided by the Pentagon.
So far, the president has spent 18 days abroad, is on a pace to surpass is 20 days abroad in 2010 and 2011 and is approaching his high of 40 days in 2009. Total costs so far for Air Force One calculated by NTUF are $15,219,433.

After the election cover-up of Benghazi...lies and more lies.
(Hours before delaying Obamacare, Sebelius spent $32 million on it).....(Obama compared Nelson Mandela to George Washington) like the 57 American states Obama claimed to have visited, he is again wrong in his comparison of Mandela and Washington.....Political Correctness is keeping Americans from throttling this fraud...or something is.
You’d never know that there are any “cutbacks” going on unless you go around a military base. The Kenyan and his “single mom” wife sure aren’t going to let any stinkin’ cutbacks wreck their lifestyle of the rich and famous. They’re living a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The president takes the enormous carbon footprint of Air Force One and all his assorted hangers on who travel with him, to Africa, to lecture Africans about the need to fight global warming. Among other things, Africans can’t industiralize and have cars and air conditioners, says the American president with a carbon footprint thousands of times larger than African peasants.
His lecturing Africans about global warming and how they should embrace homosexuality didn’t go over so well on this trip. I wonder if Obama knows that much of the world isn’t as liberal as he is.
That would feed a lot of homeless or pay a lot of medical bills not to mention look real good in the pockets of the taxpayers.
Good thing he shut down the White Hut tours or we could never have afforded his vacation (which included Chewbacca’s mother and a niece.)
Add Chicken _hit to that.

Waitaminute, it's July 4, 2013; - that's $24 million for six (6) months travel for an airplane, only.
Doesn't include Lobster and Kobe steak dinners with all the family and assorted 'friends'. Oh, almost forgot all those twelve-hundred dollar dresses and shoes mooshellie wears.

Article and # 1 through # 8 , w graphics.
The taxpayers? Let them eat Cake.
He’ll just tell them to itemize the bill; should keep them busy until after he’s out of office.
I am not defending that idiot who illegally took the highest office, but facts are facts. If we are going to make fun of him, we need to be sure he is wrong in the first place.
So.... How many States are in the United States currently ?
HINT: 50 is not the answer.
Now see, that $6.5 mil is merely chump change compared to $24 mil for air costs. Just a drop in the bucket. Nothing for y’all to get all hyper about. It’s probably even more insignificant compared to the boob belt budget.
Sequester the WH chefs!
