Skip to comments.Obamas partied like kings on Africa vacation
Posted on 05/29/2014 10:24:17 AM PDT by PoloSec
Records newly obtained by officials with Judicial Watch revealed on Thursday that lodging, security and entertainment for the Obamas entourage during their trip last year to Africa cost taxpayers nearly $2.2 million.
The Obamas clearly either do not understand the value of a dollar or understand it all too well when someone else is picking up the tab, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Keep in mind that this outrageously lavish excursion came at the very same time that the president was shutting down White House tours and blaming it on the sequester. As one congressional critic noted at the time, the White House could have 1,350 weeks of tours for the cost of the Obama familys trip to Africa.
Earlier documents obtained by Judicial Watch said the flight expenses for the familys African outing totaled more than $8.1 million.

The Obama's Have Spent Every Penny of Your Reparations!
...talk to them!
If you THINK you are a king, you will party like one. Disgraceful to say the least.
Not mention how many OTHER vacations they have taken with OUT MONEY!
The headline should say “queens”
While veterans are dying waiting for care.
The Bammys sure have a large CO2 buttprint.
Offer them income tax free status for the next 75 years. They can work as much as they want. Earn as much as they want. Spend it all as they like, or save it all as they like. Send their kids to better schools. Send their kids to college.
White people enjoyed a tremendous period of being free of this burden of personal income taxes. They should enjoy the same.
Oh yeah..........That also means no state or federal welfare either. No free healthcare.
I'm trying to remember Bush flying Laura "out to dinner" on AF-1 like Zip flew the Moose up to NYC. I'm trying to remember Bush flying AF-1 around ground zero scaring people also.
Oh, get off your high horse.
I'm pretty damned sure that EVERY president has traveled in what would be considered luxury to the man on the street.
Would you really like to have seen Reagan holed up in an African version of Motel 6 in Soweto? Didn't think so.
Are you a troll?
With the system the way it is now, it pays handsomely to be poor and not work!
...so I don't know if your idea would motive those satisfied with the 'reparations' they are currently receiving?
Agreed. You cannot say "partied like kings" without a frame of reference.
But WND is well known for skimping on facts and throwing red meat to the wolves in hopes of eliciting a few racist responses....like we see here in this thread.
There are agent provocateurs among us.
The Obama’s make King Louis and Marie Antoinette look like amateurs in spending the people’s money. I’m surprised that the Obama’s haven’t built their own Versailles. However, remember history... King Louis and Marie Antoinette pushed the people too far and started a revolution that sent both of them to the guillotine.
You are shooting your mouth off without facts.
But, But, But , Bush took vacations too! Si Paco, to his ranch in Texas and he didn’t take a bunch of his minions along as guests of the taxpayer. Thank goodness that the Zero misadministration has made it possible for so many Americans to be relieved of job lock so that they too can enjoy exorbitant vacati............................never mind!
