The documents obtained by activist group Judicial Watch show the Africa trip required 35.5 flight hours. At a cost of $228,288 per flight hour, the total cost was a staggering $8,104,224.
For the Obamas' Christmas vacation in Honolulu, starting in December 2013 and ending in January 2014, the documents, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, show the first family accumulated 36.9 total flight hours. At a cost of $210,877 per flight hour, the flight costs alone for that trip totaled $7,781,361.30, according to the Air Force documents.

It’s not JUST Obama having fun flying around up there. Let’s NOT forget the rest of the Democrats throwing their weight around all over the country, and the World.
Since the Democrats became the majority in 2009 having had the house, and the Senate since 2007 we see them in and out of our local military air field almost daily.

When the Republicans were in the majority with a Republican President I don’t recall but a couple of times seeing anything other than military aircraft, transports, and refuelers.
The Democrats seem to want to strut their stuff being BIG SHOTS.
