The Obama Family Trip To Africa To Cost $60 To $100 Million

Michelle Obama SC The Obama Family Trip to Africa to Cost $60 to $100 Million

President Obama and his family will be going to Africa later this month. But the trip won’t be cheap; it’s expected to cost American taxpayers $60 to $100 million, according to the Washington Post.

“When President Obama makes his first extended trip to sub-Saharan Africa later this month, the federal agencies charged with keeping him safe won’t be taking any chances. Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of emergency,” reports the Post.

“Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bullet-proof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.

    For $100 mil, do you think we can get the African leaders to keep them? it would be worth it.

  2. Let's save by making it a one waay ticket!

  3. This is absurd, especially when Americans are hurting financially. I have already emailed my Senator asking him to do what he can to stop this (if he can stop this waste of money).

    Obuuthole and his fat ass wife the Grape Ape plus the niglets could care less about what they spend as long as it is for them.Obutthole wants to go back to where he was born and show the little chimps what hut his white mama spit him out in.This president waste money then complains that it is the republicans fault that people have to be furloughed.If this igger would cool all those plane rides to campaign which is not government business and should be reimbursed by him and Markey and if he was serious about not wasting money he'd go to camp Gitmo.I think Moochelle wants to show her daughters where she played Cheetah in Tarzan movies.

    This is truly beyond belief. This sounds like something out of trashy movie.I cant believe congress wont have this guy arrested for crimes against the American people. As far as all these bullshit polls I keep hearing about his popularity being close to 50% Ill have to call BULLSHIT on that. If this had been George Bush he would be serving 3 life terms at gittmo. What the Hell!!!

  6. maybe he and his fat-ass wife will stay there since they are so proud to be african-americans, i sure as hell wish they would .. he dosent give a rats ass what it cost taxpayers, he dosent give a shit about what anything costs look at the deficit …

  7. Once again, at what point will SOMEONE in congress stand up and do something about this traitor?!

  8. Franklin says:

    It wouldn't be a bad idea if Mr. and Mrs. Obama (or Soetoro?) could remain there in Africa for ever…At least they would be living in a place they say is just their ancestors' home…

    Let us pray that one of the S.S. snipers charged with protecting the president misses his shot allowing nature to take it's course. Lions are man eaters, but what is Obama?

  10. Gilberto Garcia says:

    FOR A PRESIDENT THAT KNOWS NOTHING, AND DOES NOTHING. WHY THOSE HE NEED TO TREVEL, ANY WHERE AT OR EXPENCE?
    60 TO A HUNDRED MILLION FOR HIS FAMIY TRIP TO AFRICA, SEAMS TO BE TO MUCH, UNLESS HE PLANS TO STAY THERE.

  11. Under normal circumstances, this might be ok?? But all this elaborate spending and the expensive vacations when our country is economically sick and millions are hurting is plain wrong. Perhaps some of the senators or someone with a conscience could tell obamas. Another thing..as long as we have to solicit money from taxpayers to help our wounded warriors, the obamas might think of giving those tens of millions to our vets who had their arms and legs blown off or their minds damaged. Damn it!!

  12. Why the Hell is another extravagant vacation needed? What the Hell have they done that was so strenuous that they need ANOTHER COSTLY VACATION!

Speak Your Mind
