President Barack Obamas expected 10-minute speech at Nelson Mandelas memorial will cost taxpayers at least $500,000 per minute.
Thats not counting any cakes and coffee he and his inner circle consume aboard Air Force One during the 18,000-mile round trip to Johannesburg, via Dakar, in Senegal.
The 28-hour two-way flight will cost $5 million because the four-engined Boeing 747 costs roughly $180,000 an hour to operate, according to a May 2012 report by the Congressional Research Service.
The cost includes jet fuel and subsequent maintenance of the aircrafts engines, electronics and hotel-class facilities.
Obama has been accompanied by the First Lady, Attorney General Eric Holder, national security advisor Susan Rice and confidante Valerie Jarrett.

You shouldn't complain ... cause I'm worth it!
"...confidante Valerie Jarrett?
Has Podesta's new presence bumped her advisor status (bet she's fuming over that choice of words).
“There is an orchestrated genocidal campaign targeting whites, and white farmers in particular.”
..and didn’t Obama say that the world was more peaceful since he took office???
Mandelas membership in the SACP must ignore the well established facts that show:
The SACP was, and remains, a hardcore Marxist-Leninist organization in which all members must pledge unquestioned obedience to the will of the Party, as determined by its Central Committee;
The SACP took its direction from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), and, as such, was an agent of a hostile foreign power;
SACP members, including Mandela, secretly took control of the ANC, pushing aside and sabotaging ANC leaders committed to reform and change through peaceful, political means;
ANC and its terrorist arm, Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), which was also controlled by the SACP, were trained in Soviet Russia and Red China, or in Communist Frontline States Zambia, Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zimbabwe by Soviet, Chinese, East German, Cuban, Czech, and other Communist instructors;
The SACP-controlled ANC and MK exploited the conditions of apartheid, racism and colonialism not to help South African blacks, but to further the objectives of the Soviet Union and the world Communist conspiracy;
The SACP-controlled ANC and MK used the Communist-provided training and arms to direct their terror, torture, and murder against South Africas black majority even more often than against the white minority;
If Mandela was not only a Communist Party member, but also a top SACP leader which the evidence irresistibly shows he was then he is not only a colossal and persistent liar, but he is all the more culpable in the innumerable acts of terror, torture, and murder committed by ANC mobs and MK cadres over the past several decades;
Mandela has bequeathed South Africa a one-party state ruled by the increasingly tyrannical and kleptocratic ANC/SACP, which is leading the country down the path toward economic destruction, record-level violent crime, chaos, and genocide.
No , Ceaser, DO NOT GO TO ROME.
It is going to cost Africa a misrepresentation and islamic interpretation of Mandela, included the black American islamic colonization of Africans regarding what is best for Africa with the media right behind to push.
Africa will suffer greatly from this islamic progressist new “pure” advanced race concept... just putting Arthur C Clarks 2001 odyssey’s perspective.

This is the black power Obama nationalist socialist movement on FULL display. They brought along a few “whiteys” to do the step and fetch for them, on full display to infect the Transvaal with war and leftist radicalism. Look ye well upon the faces of these fascists.They need to be removed from office and relegated to the dust bin of history.
I refuse to listen to one Commie, eulogizing another.
I also refuse to listen to Obumbo, anytime, anywhere.
“just think of all the money you saved with Margaret Thatcher”
Freepers, do not be hypocrites. If a Republican was the president it would be his duty to attend this funeral and everyone here should know that. Politics has nothing to do with this because like him or not Mandela is considered a great man by millions of people. When the Queen of England dies it will also be our president’s duty to attend her funeral also....but this bozo won’t you can be sure which proves that there is hypocrisy on both sides and this crap will never end.
