Posted on 04/15/2012 11:29:29 AM PDT by Daffynition
First lady Michelle Obamas family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group.
The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, said the group, and that doesnt include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members.

Makes me want to go out and kick the dog. :(
I just want to know if sasha and malia paid a higher income tax rate than their secretaries did.
When are people going to get it through their thick skulls that Barry Baraqua Hussein Obama Soetoro and his co-horts are corrupt?
*shakes head* I hope we didn’t pay those “senior staffers”..
Thanks for posting.
Slap Moochelle with violation of child labor laws and fraud.
Reconstruction II is rolling along.
Could you imagine if Laura Bush did this for the Bush twins?
I just wrote a check for over $27,000 to the IRS. How much “fun” does that buy for these anointed ones and their little vermin?
It sure as hell didn’t doesn’t buy me any “fun.”
Liberals will support him no matter what he does.
Moochie Obummer Listed Daughters Malia and Sasha as Junior Shafters for $432,142 African Trip
This is why they wanted the WH, not for the job, but for the perks. They are being paid to party and vacation on our dime. This is beyond her scope as first lady and she should be made to pay, they both should. I pray November will change things.
Two grifters raising their children to be just like them. Hopefully once they vacate (and we fumigate) it will be the last we see of any of them!
The Obamas in the WH is the equivalent of “I got’s my EBT, my EBT - gon swipe my EBT, my EBT —— yeah, mang!”
Sounds like you had a pretty good year, Congratulations
To be fair, we know if Laura Bush had done the same, the press would have ignored the story too... /s
The much vilified Richard Nixon, even here on FR, was EASILY an Eagle Scout by comparison to the RaceMarxist and the oily Clintons.
You expected Moochelle to be honest?
I just wrote a check for over $27,000 to the IRS.
Yet we get the same single vote as the generational inner city parasites.
“The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, ... and that doesnt include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members.”
NOR the SS detail. If there were 25 SS agents assigned to accompany the older daughter’s traveling to Mexico, imagine the # of SS assigned to this large contingent and the SS advance detail and all of their per diems. The SS 2010 starting salary range was $43,964 - $74,891. How many at the starting salary range are assigned to protect the First Family? This is a significant chunk of change.
Didn’t you get the memo? Obama’s wife and daughters are off-limits. No criticism allowed.
Sasha and Malia will get full ride scholarships to the Ivy League Colleges of their choice. They will get well paid apprenticeships at Fortune 500 companies. They will get lucrative positions in liberal NGO's/Non-profits, while they complete their Master's Degrees at Stanford. Then they will serve as Congressional Staffers in districts where Senior Dems are about to retire only to be usered in as the heir apparant soon after their arrival.
All based upon superior merit.
Tell me we don't have an aristocracy. GW and his cohorts must be spinning in their graves. I'm sure MLK is as well.
Rat double standard---they attacked Palin for expensing her kids travel in Alaska, but now it's OK for the Obamas to do the same thing on a much larger scale.
He’s either looking for change or trying to figure out how big a moving van he and his grifter wife are going to need to steal WH treasures. He’ll use the smaller van for his chairman moa artifacts.
Just like the former clinton grifters.
On June 28, 2011, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request seeking the mission taskings, transportation records, and passenger manifests for Michelle Obamas Africa trip. Documents were only provided after Judicial Watch filed suit:
According to U.S. Department of Defenses published hourly rates for the C-32A aircraft used for the trip, Judicial Watch calculated the total cost to American taxpayers was $424,142 for use of the aircraft (34.8 flight hours x $12,188 per hour). (The C-32 is a specially configured military version of the Boeing 757.) Other expenses meals (off the plane), transportation, security, various services, etc. have yet to be disclosed.
The expense records also show $928.44 was spent for bulk food purchases on flight. Overall, during the trip, 192 meals were served for the 21 passengers on board.
I meant mao. Glad I made the mistake though.
Tell me we don’t have an aristocracy
We do have a few. Bush, Kennedy, the beginning of Clinton to name a few. I think it’s time for the dynasties to go. I’m tired of the same old people being elected over and over again.
[Gotta go now and inflate my tires and get a tune-up on my car....my sacrifices are nothing compared to the sacrifices of my POTUS and FLOTUS...I am ashamed]
OBAMA VOTERS' FAULT!
Lol, thank you Daffy. Remember not to ‘over inflate’, snicker.
They want their reparations and they’re going to take it however they have to get it!
You have to admit though, they probably have more political expertise than some other “staffers” on these junkets...
I sent this to Pat Toomey and Peter King.
The press never brings this up Sasha’s real name is Natasha, which is Russian. The leftist media came up with Sasha to hide Barky’s communist sentiments. Natasha spelled backwards is ah, Satan!
What the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mothers death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his fathers military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nauseum. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He has fought for abortion procedures and opposed rulings that protected women and children, that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady, as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
We all know what happened to the Romanovs.
Why thanks. The only thing *overinflated* is the Fed budget. :(
.........you forgot about Barry’s EGO !! hehe
