It won't be in the White House. Another Hawaiian Christmas compliments of the U.S. taxpayer. Estimated at 4 million. Dec. 17 thru Jan. 6.

Yup, he really understands this country is hurting.

Why don't you believe it? The way I understand it is that not only is Air Force 1 and 2 in the air whenever Obama is, there is also a cargo plane going to provide his bullet proof car. All the secret service, and the White House staff. I wonder how many of their family and friends we are paying for to go with them? I also wonder if the White House staff family goes with them.

I'm sure the people in hurricane Sandy who are still in misery just love to hear about yet another expensive vacation for the Obama's.

Most every claim about Obama from Obama haters on Topix is a lie. The 4 million dollars is probably another one.

Remember that time Fox news and the rest of the right wing blather industry and conservative republican morons lke Michelle Bachman were running around claiming that an Obama trip to India was costing hundreds of millions of dollars?

So yeah, the latest claims about Obama are most likely just more lies.

We are having to pay for the rentals that the secret service and White House staff that travels with them will need. Hawaii is not cheap.

By the way bufu, this amount is in line with their past Hawwaiian vacations.

Never mind...I found it.

Mumbai: The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama's visit to the city.

"The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit," a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security.

Navy and Air Force has been asked by the state government to intensify patrolling along the Mumbai coastline and its airspace during Obama's stay. The city's airspace will be closed half-an-hour before the President's arrival for all aircraft barring those carrying the US delegation.

The personnel from SRPF, Force One, besides the NSG contingent stationed here would be roped in for the President's security, the official said.

The area from Hotel Taj, where Obama and his wife Michelle would stay, to Shikra helipad in Colaba would be cordoned off completely during the movement of the President.

Ahh, look who has resurfaced and in true fashion re-posting things that have been proven, time and time again, as totally false.

As I keep saying, this type of behavior won't win you an election in 2016.

Hey, TaxMan. Rather than re-posting propaganda that has been proven as false by a slew of media outlets, why don't you finish the "debate" you started several weeks ago. You may recall a variety of off topic comments and questions you posted to distract from your repeated inability to accurately represent your statements here. You then, just prior to your sudden absence here, gave two debate topics -- both of which you have yet to offer retorts to.

Make no mistake, I expect nothing of real substance out of you but couldn't pass on, once again, pointing out your failing actions within this forum.

From Maila Zimmerman who is a contributor to ABC, 20/20, Fox, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal, UPI, and the Washington Times.

Residents alerted to Obama's Hawaiian holiday plans.

Presidents staff and White House press corp stay at the Moana Surfrider. Rooms are 270 to 370 a night and can be more during holidays.

Special forces rent at least 7 homes. Secret Service, U.S. Coast Guard, and Navy Seals.

Additional travel cost for secret service and White House staff who travel ahead of the president.

Unknown cost the White House refuses to release citing security.

President security force rents entire floor of a office building in Kailua.

Security upgrades and extra phone lines to several private homes where Obama and FRIENDS aare staying. Includes bullet proof glass and new security systems.

Car rentals and fuel for White House staff staying at a Waikili hotel.

We get a break on this one. Oahu taxpayers pay $250,ooo for overtime for police and $10,000 for a ambulance that follows Obama around.

The biggest chunk of the $4 million is transportation to and from Hawaii.

It also said not everyone is happy about him being there. Blocked off street and such cause problems for other residents.

“Ignorance is not Patriotism.”

Since: Dec 11

Has anyone figured up how much the country lost during Bush's 900 days of vacation and weekly trips to his Texas ranch?
