The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-trvaeled, expensive” president in our nation’s history.

As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending.

Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer

Another complete, feces in your face, example of the Mahdi's and Moochelle's absolute contempt and hatred for America and American taxpayers. No mesley millionaire worth only between $100 million and $200 million could afford this ongoing obscenity out of his own income.

The article lacks context.

It only talks about days for the previous presidents, not dollars squandered.

They all steal from us.

Haven’t been able to take a vacation in years because of the horrid economy, taxation and regulation put in place by this imposter. May they choke on their $10,000 a bottles of wine, lobster, and caviar that I helped pay for.

Everyone around here says “Obama is a do nothing President”

They say Look at his skimpy schedule, mostly political events and short hours.

Well this story talks about what he does best, take time of and have fun and doing it with the taxpayers money.

I am happy when he does what he does best because it gives him less time to screw America and the American people.

Also, it gives him less time to harass BiBi and screw up foreign affairs.

What he needs is the next 2 years off.

IMPEACH

If you believe that this is the first politician stealing your wallet, you have not been paying attention.

Just saying that for context, I find it odd to leave out what the others spent. It’s bad reporting.

Nor does it mention they pay the kids as her full time staffers, or the BILLIONS she has spent on clothes. Who picks up the tab for their education? I know we pick up the tab for the Secret Service. But educating them should come out of 0’s pocket as should their clothing and dog care..flights, food, vet bills.

At least GWB took his dogs with him on his plane. Or sent them with the First Lady on hers. If they could not take them, the dogs stayed home.

Oh I have been for decades now. The others were happy with a few dimes on the dollar. This guy wants it all though and he would take it all too if there people like Tea Party members and true patriots stopping him.

I am sure these a$$ hole MOFOs will double that in the next two years. To say they are not my favorite people, would be an understatement of Biblical proportions.

It is actually much more when you include all the costs from all the agencies for the logistical costs of supporting this travel.

Watch the swearing in of Johnson on Air Force 1 back in the sixties. Tiny plane. Johnson almost had to bend over. Imperial presidency.

I was actually surprised as I expected the cost to be much larger than that (and perhaps the real cost was understated). No extravagance or pivilege is too great for the Sun King.

And why not? Who is going to stop him? Its amazing (at least to me) that he hasn’t grabbed even more in power and perks than he has. The country seems willing to tolerate his endless excesses and abuses.

You don't REALLY think he's doing NOTHING during those "golf games" and "vacations", do you?

He's doing his real job. The golf and vacations are just a cover.

Would God he were a do nothing President and spent all of his time whacked out on drugs or drunk. He’d have done a lot less damage that way.

I have a problem with the English language in describing the Mahdi and Moochelle: there’s just no word, or combination of words, ordinary or obscene, the can express the depth and extent of my absolute loathing for those two subhumans and their evil enablers.

They are not mot likely counting in the double use in travel, 1 presidential event, 5 campaign hop stops. You can eliminate those as legit ones not what the 5 additional ones truly are. And dem national or 0’s war chest should pick up the tab for that.
