We are NOT kidding you. You have been kidded with too much already. Your confusion, while understandable and SAD, is entertaining at best.<quoted text>
Obama's vacation bills add up
August 20, 2013
President Obama is the most expensive president in U.S. history. When questioned about the total cost of all his trips, Obama stonewalls and refuses to answer. But details have surfaced elsewhere.
In his first three years, he and his family enjoyed 16 vacations. I guess they forgot about the poor children they pretend to love, many of whom have never been on a vacation.
In 2010 their trip to Hawaii cost Americans $1.5 million. The president and his wife also enjoyed a "date night" in New York City for about $240,000.
In 2011 Obama's travel expenses were $1.4 billion.(In comparison, the royal family of England travel cost only $57.8 million.) In addition, the Obamas' Christmas holiday was for 17 days, totaling $4 million. In contrast George W. Bush stayed nearby at Camp David over Christmas so his staff could enjoy the holidays with their families. President Ronald Reagan spent $1.3 million per year for travel.
This year is the worst, and it's only half over. The trip with his family to Africa has been predicted to exceed $100 million. And he just ended his vacation at Martha's Vineyard.
Remember President Obama's campaign pledge, "change you can believe in"? I guess that means after he leaves office there won't be any "change," just a lot of debt.
Thanks for educating the American People as to JUST what the Tea Party is about. I'll bet that you have delivered 10 more million votes to your oppositions candidates.
Perhaps you folks should try a strategy based in REALITY next time.
Anyways, GOOD JOB!
