Posted on 03/23/2014 8:17:45 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obama has spent more time traveling abroad than other U.S. president in history at this point in their presidencies, according to a forthcoming study from the National Taxpayer Union Foundation (NTUF) provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release.
The most internationally well-traveled President, through five years, is also flying the most expensive-to-operate Air Force One to date, NTUF wrote.
After five years in the White House, Obama has taken 31 trips for a total of 119 days abroad. At that point in George W. Bushs presidency, Bush had taken 28 trips for 116 days, while Bill Clinton had taken 27 trips for 113 days. Ronald Reagan, after five years, had taken 14 trips for 73 days while Richard Nixon had taken 12 trips for 60 days after five years in the White House and Lyndon Johnson took 10 trips for 34 days at the half-decade mark. Dwight Eisenhower took 8 trips for 31 days after five years in the White House.
Citing a recent report in the Washington Examiner that found through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that taxpayers are on the hook for about $228,288 per Air Force One flight hour in 2013, a 27 percent increase from the previously confirmed cost of $179,750 per fight hour that NTUF used in its last study, the taxpayer watchdog concludes that Obamas flights have cost taxpayers more than any other president.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
0dungo, Bush, and Clinton. I want to see what percentage of those trips that each has taken as a vacation(s).
In the black community, this behavior is labeled “Niggah Rich”
The B-52’s Roam
Abroad doesn’t even count his trips in the lower 48 and those Hawaiian/Florida/California/Anywhere to give a speech vacations. He must be way over the top.
Plus his wife and her personal mileage abroad with vacations on the mainland have to be a record to beat all the other presidents and their wives put together!
“Well we’re movin’ on up...”
No doubt he trips W took to visit the troops are counted as “vacations”
Add the endless campaign trips and we have a screw the taxpayer, me and the posse be livin large......
How many times did Bush fly in to the Mid East to support our troops.
I remember one in particular, Thanksgiving I believe, where he flew in, early in the morning, served a Thanksgiving meal to our soldiers, then flew home.
He was in country, just a matter of a few hours, so that enemies couldn't mount an attack while he was there. We're talking about 13 hours EACH WAY, to surprise and serve our troops for a few hours.
Zero would never inconvenience himself for the benefit of another.
And if Bush had spent that much time overseas the “news” media would have complained that he wasn’t at home “taking care of the people’s business”.
Well...If you think tho...
I think they all play for the other team.
US Media Reaction-
“Only racists and Fox News-watching zombies care about this stuff. What does it matter?”
Kate Pierson, the red haired woman has a “partner”.
Their original guitarist died of AIDS.
Kate Pierson swings the other way also.
Was everyone in a band from Athens gay? Michael Stipe, too.
Remarkable. All that travel, and he’s perfectly safe.
but, they added, it needs to be noted that the majority of those days were spent at Bush's "vacation home." So yes Bush was on vacation far more than Obama could ever hope to match.
Oh.. and Obama has to travel all over because he does not have a vacation home, the MSM employees stressed. (At least then didn't say that Obama lacked a vacation home because he is victim of racism.)
i ask her what her trigger was and she said she was only interested in girls much better looking than she was and she was hot as hell... needless to say she didn't have that many girl hookups and only one while we were dating and that one was a tourist

Wait a minute! Lets put these stats through the parsimeter
The parsimeter indicates that this bull sh!t press release does not include trips within the 57 states. No trips to Florida, none to Hawaii, California, even Chicago; or double trips to Martha’s Vineyard, or triple trips, with dog, to Maine.
And maybe even the trips that Zer0 was not on the plane: Vail; Aspen; Spain; China; Cancun; Florida; Africa.
And many others.
Well, he’s not going to be accused of being niggardly.
And if Bush had spent that much time overseas the news media would have complained that he wasnt at home taking care of the peoples business.
Exactly. They even complained (and still do) that Bush 43 spent his vacations at his own ranch in Texas, where he was in constant communication with D.C. and elsewhere.
He and Laura were not at lavish resorts or renting houses at inflated rates in Martha’s Vinyard or Hawaii; plus all of the staff and secret service personnel housing, etc.
Bush had housing for the SS on his ranch and often furnished the BBQ dinners. ...At Christmas, the Bushes often went to Camp David (not Hawaii) so the majority of their staff and SS could spend time with their own families.
Awesome contrast. Any idea where and when it was taken? I’m guessing at some sort of memorial service.
Oval Office = work
AF1 = not work
The Obama’s have always had those jobs where you show up and get paid
And then we have the rest of his family ilk who live “N7777R Rich” on our money. SPEND, SPEND, SPEND, who the hell cares, it’s not THEIR MONEY they’re spending.
There is a cultural expression that describes the condition but if I mentioned it I would be banned for a racial slur
Actually, he’s not doing the work of a President. He’s a salesman selling crappy health insurance policies.
Who put them there? Who writes the appropriations bills for the White House operation? What House committee passes these appropriations, and who is the chairman of that committee?
In Dear Leader’s head he is merely personally recouping all those black slavery reparations in behalf of his people for leading them through the struggle.
