Exposed: What Obama Is Doing EVERY DAY of His Hawaii Vacation Is Shocking Americans

By Jack Davis. The presidential vacation to Hawaii is burning a hole in the federal budget to the tune of about $470,000 a day, according to federal documents provided to the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said in 2008 while campaigning for office. “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

However, according to documents just received by the watchdog group after two years of waiting, the Obama family vacation to Hawaii two years ago cost nearly $8 million. The group, which has filed Freedom of Information requests to ascertain how much the Obamas spend while on vacation, estimates that Americans may have spent over $50 million for the seven winter vacations taken by the first family to date. One more vacation is on tap for next year, when Obama will be a lame duck president.

“It seems our lawsuits finally got the attention of the Secret Service. It is easy to see why the Secret Service, reeling from its own scandals, covered up these outrageous expense numbers for just one of Obama’s luxury Christmas vacation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The $317,000 in Secret Service expenses are only the tip of the iceberg for the true cost of Obama’s 2013 vacation in Hawaii, which has now skyrocketed to $8,098,060. It is nice to know that Obama’s ‘tradition’ of Christmas vacations in Hawaii comes courtesy of overburdened taxpayers.”

Judicial Watch found that in 2013-14, the Obamas spent $91,751.78 in car rental expenses. (Read more from “Exposed: What Obama Is Doing EVERY DAY of His Hawaii Vacation Is Shocking Americans” HERE)


Mele Kalikimaka: Taxpayer’s Gift to Obama Is $470,000 a Day Hawaiian Vacation

By Paul Bedard. The first family’s Christmas vacation to Hawaii two years ago cost over $8 million, giving an indication of the price of their current 17-day winter break, according to federal documents provided to the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Added up, their seven vacations to the island could total over $50 million, and he still has one more likely as president at the end of next year.

From Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it recently received expense records from the Department of Homeland Security revealing that Secret Service expenses for the Obama family vacation to Honolulu during December 2013-January 2014 cost taxpayers at least $316,698.03. These new expenses bring the total for the Hawaii Christmas vacation trip to $8,098,060.33. The Secret Service waited nearly two years to produce the requested numbers to Judicial Watch.

The heavily redacted records were obtained on December 28 in response to a January 6, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

    This younger generation does not know that in some cases, when you give a person an inch they will take a mile. This has been the case with this jerk from the get-go. Still an awful lot of Americans can’t see this.

    • obamasux

      Obama should have been impeached from his first unconstitutional executive action, but the Repyoobics were too damn lily-livered to uphold the Constitution.

      • Charles

        I have to agree with you.

    So? What’s going to happen? Anything?

      As usual, NOTHING! He does whatever the he## he wants whenever the he## he wants to do it. And now he’s stepping it up!

  • georgev

    In this economy where Americans that are paying taxes cannot go on lavish vacations this is an abuse of power.

    • Barbaree

      His daily costs are much more than a lot of people make in a lifetime!

  • Barbaree

    And this is just the Hawaiian vacations! How about all the other vacations he and his family take — together and separately!

    The press was relentless in attacking Nancy Reagan because she bought expensive china for the White House (not for herself!) and with donations (not taxpayer money)! The Reagans were also attacked mercilessly for once staying at an expensive hotel (gratis), which also didn’t cost taxpayers.

    He does whatever he wants because he knows the press will protect him every step of the way! Nice, huh?!

      How about this Muslim pretender given the door early by a Republican Congress? Of, I forgot. They have the spine of a amoeba. He is the worst ever without doubt.

  • ldazzle

    obozo & moochie have never had jobs, where you pay for your own vacations (earned). They’re shammers, and the cooled drinkers still elected him twice.

    • Barbaree

      The way I understand it, after obama became a senator, michelle was given a job at some college with a salary of several hundred thousand a year, and basically sat around all day. When she left, the job was discontinued.

    Ah, the glories of Marxism – do as I say, not as I do, or I’ll send you to the gulag – especially once I’ve got your guns. Here’s Obama’s “Apostate’s Creed”:

    I believe in Government Almighty,
    Sustainer and savior of Earth.
    And in Marx and Darwin, our Lords,
    who were conceived by Evolution,
    born of pure Reason,
    suffered under Christianity,
    were exhumed, glorified and deified.
    They descended into the state education establishment,
    Where they infected the tenured brain-dead.
    They were force-fed to the young from age six
    And drilled into their skulls,
    To ensure that no one harbors the God Delusion.
    Henceforth they will torment the entire planet.
    I believe in the Holy Welfare State,
    the holy sacrament of Abortion,
    the communion of Same-Sex Marriage,
    the eradication of Christians,
    the resurrection of Mao, Stalin, Lenin, and all those other cool guys,
    and the life Totalitarian.

    File a lawsuit and get a judgment against him, and seize his assets to pay the judgment……

  • Brian Artzberger

    Obama owes the American Taxpayers over $50 Million just for his Hawaii vacations. We’ll have to garnish all his retirement pay and speaking fees for the rest of his life.

    I think we need to find a way for this lazy, America hating piece of trash to pay us back. I think we have the shovel ready jobs for him in Guantanamo.

    And the Dems were braying about Bush’s “vacations” at his own home in Crawford, Tx. When do the Obamas ever just go home? To Chicago, a city he helped along.

    I believe there is historical precedent for billing the President for some expenses. Abraham Lincoln personally paid bills his wife ran up while he was in office. Send Prezbo the bill. Be sure to charge interest.
