Obama’s pricey vacations: Air Force One operating cost for 3 trips… a whopping $16 million

First Lady Michelle Obama recently returned from a weeklong trip to China with her daughters Malia and Sasha and her mother Marian Robinson. No word yet on how much that jaunt cost. On Tuesday, Glenn reported President Obama had traveled to Europe with a 900-person entourage. It’s safe to say the American taxpayers will be on the hook for a pretty penny. And now Judicial Watch has released official documentation obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that sheds light on the monstrous cost involved in operating Air Force One.

In June 2013, the Obamas visited Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania. The Washington Post estimated the 7-day trip cost $100 million, and Judicial Watch reports the Africa trip required 35.5 flight hours at a cost of $228,288 per flying hour. The grand total for Air Force One: $8,104,224.

You may recall the Obama family spent Christmas and New Year’s in Honolulu. The per hour flying cost for this trip came in slightly lower at $210,877. According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch, Air Force One operation costs for that trip totaled $7,781,361.30.

So the total cost to the U.S. taxpayer just for Air Force One is: $15,885,585.30.

See the entire document HERE.

As Breitbart reported, these new documents from Judicial Watch come on the heels of February reports that the first family’s 8-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard August 2013 had the American people on the hook for $1,164,268.60 in flight costs alone.

While all presidents are forced to travel with tremendous security for official business and all first families are entitled to go on vacation, the optics aren’t good for the Obama Administration. As the President preaches income inequality, his family jet sets to opposite sides of the world on the backs of the American people.

On radio this morning, Pat, Stu, and Jeffy looked at President Obama’s travel compared to that of other recent presidents. President George W. Bush, for example, spent most of his ‘vacations’ at his Crawford, Texas ranch, which essentially became a contained outpost of the White House.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Air Force One is essentially the White House in the sky, right? You could basically run the country from there. So it’s a pretty impressive vehicle,” Stu said. “However, that also was the case with Crawford, Texas. Essentially, it became… the southern White House. And it was a working White House, where they would actually do the work that they would do in the White House… Obviously some of the expenses are built in and there’s a lot of crossover. But it’s not like he’s going somewhere expensive or Hawaii or somewhere like that.”

The guys couldn’t help but consider how the media would have reacted to these astronomical costs and lavish vacations had the Bush family been taking the types of trips the Obama family is now.

“If Laura Bush and Jenna and Barbara had gone to China by themselves, with W’s mom… can you imagine the uproar there would have been on taxpayer expense,” Pat concluded. “You would have heard an endless barrage of it, and really there is no outcry over this… But if this was George W. Bush, it would be outrageous. But with the Obamas, just doesn’t matter. [It’s] perfectly fine.”

    Do These Priorities Sound Familiar?

    Healthcare
    Poverty
    Debt
    Gun Control
    Welfare
    Education
    Religion
    Class Warfare

    If you guessed that these are President Obama political priorities you would only be partially correct.

    Below is an excerpt from the book “Rules for Radicals” which presents the author Saul Alinsky’s blueprint for transforming America into a socialist state.

    “There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.”

    These priorities take on a whole different connotation when you read them in the context within which they were written, don’t they?

    Exactly…everyone is too comfortable and scared to do anything. As someone once said to me, people won’t do anything until they are made to feel “uncomfortable”, then they will have something to say and something to do. As of now, not many are to that point yet. They are also in denial. How do you boil a frog?…slowly. They are hitting us from all sides, healthcare, our military, immigration, oil, foreign policy. So much so fast where people can’t keep their mind straight with all of it. He has George Soros’ help. He’s not nearly that smart to be able to do this all on his own.

    Tearing down this country part is correct, building up other countries not so much. I have not seen any evidence of it. No, I think their entire concept is,
    F this country and leave country to figure out how to put it back together again. As far as those two are concerned the country owes it to them.They feel they are the ‘beneficiaries of reparations’. In the mean time their whole entourage that hangs with them and keeps defending them, are just along for the ride, and lining their pockets. When its all over, who cares, they won’t. And you don’t hear the freebie crowd complaining either do you? They’ll ride any gravy train and don’t care where it stops or when. Somebody else will come along and give them a free ride, which they’ll gladly accept, and they don’t care who it is, that will make them their promises. They know that’s how it works.

The idea was that if they skyrocketed the debt enough the Democrats wouldn’t be able to pay for any social programs or afford proper regulation in key aspects that need it or really any democratic agenda. What’s truly amazing is that even though congress has stonewalled him every step of the way President Obama has managed to cut the deficit from 825 billionish to almost 625 billion and it’s still decreasing. And this was done in the last year. That’s what’s truly amazing. So much for deeper and deeper in the hole.

    Also Ms. Obama was significantly more politically involved than Ms. Bush ever was. The only time Ms. Bush really got involved was around midterm elections. My guess is to spread the idea that Republicans do care. Ms. Obama was supporting President Obama’s agenda and her own from day one. This would make her a more politically active first lady and would give her leeway in these kinds of trips. If you research any of this you will find this is also true.

    I also don’t want to be berated for being a Communist Sympathizer or something. I don’t hate republicans or conservatives, In fact I even agree with them on some issues. Personally I think the correct answer is in compromise. What I do have a problem with is people who have “sources” and either lie about facts, pick only the fragments that support their idea, or twist facts to support their idea. I encourage all to check sources and see what context the facts were used in or to see if the sources are even credible.

    No pun intended Tony, but that won’t fly.

    There isn’t a word strong enough to accurately communicate my negative feelings for Øbama, trust me on this. However, even though it galls me raw, he IS the president. Even if the man doesn’t deserve it, the office of the president does deserve every level of protection and security that can be taken to ensure his safety. As he is the president he also must have the tools available to lead the natiion (not that he has or would) in times of crisis.

    The abuse of the office is part of what is so nauseating about this president AND of his wife. They behave as if they’re King & Queen of the USA and we are simply subjects to provide for their luxury and pleasure. Thankfully he can not be re-elected and their reign will end.

    The question is: Are the voters tired of his ilk or will they fawn over Shillery and continue the misery Øbama started?

  • Anonymous

    Stephen, an incompetent jackass is still incompetent regardless of the amount of light it may (or may not) reflect.

    The fact that the only cause for the criticism of Øbama that you can see is “racism” points to your own form of personal racism.

    You can not imagine that the reason some like me are dissatisfied with Øbama is due to his performance(or lack thereof), his fumbling/bumbling foreign policy and counter-productive plan for jobs would be anything other than his skin color reveals that you think he is superior for that very reason.

    Øbama was, and is too inexperienced for the position he currently holds. His first term taught him nothing to make his second more productive. He has done NOTHING to unite the nation. In fact his policies and speeches have done the opposite.

    If you want to support the man you feel is a good president, please feel free to do so. Tell us all about his successes, how he’s united the nation, brought more jobs, or even elevated the black community with better paying jobs and better social structure. But whipping out the race card is a feeble and baseless argument. It does not persuade and don’t you think YOUR president deserves better from you?

  • Anonymous

    Joe, if the nation was on solid financial footing and the economy and jobs picture was rosy I doubt there would be much said about these enormous costs for travel & vacations. (even though there should be, no matter who or what party holds the presidency).

    But the nation is limping along with pitiful growth, a jobless rate numbers that are vastly under reported and debt limits at an all time high.

    The harping about spending by the president and his family on travel is more about appearances than real numbers. Don’t get me wrong, when all is said and done the total amount of TAXPAYER dollars (the ones taken from the average Joe trying to pay a mortgage, go out to eat or take a modest vacation to the beach) will be staggering. The office of the president is a job. And important one, but still just a job. Will the funds spent on all his trips have a return on investment in line with the cost? It is my opinion that it will not and there are quite a few who would agree with me.

    USMADGIRL,
    It doesn’t matter who you vote for. There is only a couple of people running this country anyway. They sit “behind the curtain” and rule this once great nation by pulling the marionette strings of the front people they put into office. And as far as Fox, they are in cahoots with the whole thing as well. They are there to mislead true conservatives into believing they have a voice or a dog in the fight. Joe is right about the whole Saul Alinski thing though, and sadly I fear it is already too late to fix it. The vulnerables (“low information crowd”) are eating from the hands of the puppets and as long as they are content with what they get they don’t and won’t care about what happens. If anything else were true, they would already have risen up as well. They are just too stupid to realize how unsustainable this situation is. If you keep taking from one to give to another, eventually no one will have anything.

    How? By not letting prayer in public school? By not outlawing gay marriage? By not allowing the bible or any other religious book influence the law making? Cause that’s how it’s suppose to be?
