Weasel Zippers

Sixth straight year.

Must be nice.

HONOLULU - The White House hasn’t officially announced their plans yet, but Hawaii News Now has learned the Obama’s will vacation here over the holidays.  This will be the First Family’s sixth Christmas in Hawaii since he was elected president, and keeping with tradition they are expected to spend it in Kailua.

Every year the Obama’s have rented a few houses on Kailuana Place – creating quite the buzz in the beach side community.

“It’s exciting.  It’s really an honor to have him here, and when he’s around – actually the place is super safe because we have all this security around,” said Lanette Hayashi, who lives in the neighborhood where the Obama’s are expected to stay again this year.

“We go through two security points and so the second one, we have to get out of our car.  We have to be searched ourselves, plus our car has to be completely searched,” described Madeline, who has lived on the same street where the Obama’s have been renting for more than four decades.

Obama To Travel To Asia In October

Weasel Zippers

100 million for Africa. Wonder how much this will be.

Via Politico:

President Obama will again pivot toward Asia next month with a week-long trip to Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines, the White House announced Friday.

Obama will be away Oct. 6-12 for a trip that the White House describes as “part of his ongoing commitment to increase U.S. political, economic and security engagement with the Asia Pacific.”

He’ll start the trip in Bali, to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders meeting. He missed last year’s summit in Russia, which came weeks before the presidential election. Depending on the status of Syria talks, the summit could include a showdown between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who’s also expected to attend. Obama will also hold a bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Obama will then travel to Brunei for the U.S.-ASEAN Summit, the East Asia Summit (EAS) and a meeting with the Sultan of Brunei, who he hosted at the White House earlier this year. In Malaysia, Obama plans to meet with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia and to deliver the keynote address to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, an effort Obama launched in 2009 to help promote job creation through entrepreneurship. In the Phillippines, he’ll meet with President Benigno Aquino III “to reaffirm the strong economic, people-to-people, and security links between our two countries,” the White House said.

Obama Spends Millions on Martha’s Vineyard Vacation

Free Republic

You would think after spending $100 million dollars of taxpayer money on a recent trip to Africa would be enough for one summer. But it’s not.

The Obama family have already booked their next getaway to Martha’s Vineyard. They will reportedly be staying in a $7.6 million dollar mansion the week of August 10th. Their vacation will last about a week.

During the 2012 campaign, they couldn’t make a trip to an exclusive island so they are trying to make up for it up this summer.

While families are struggling to make ends meet, the Obama’s are taking trip after trip on the taxpayers dollar.

Fore! Obama To Vacation In Palm Beach This Week…

Weasel Zippers

In his defense, it has been seven long weeks since his last vacation.

WASHINGTON — President Obama will be enjoying a little R and R — and no doubt some golf — this weekend during a vacation in West Palm Beach.

The White House says he will leave Friday and he has no public events scheduled during the trip.

The Presidents’ Day getaway to one of the playgrounds of the rich and famous comes just days after he delivered his State of the Union address focused on the plight of the middle class.

The Obamas’ 17-Day Vacation to Hawaii Costs Taxpayers $4,135,038

Michelle Obama’s Impatience to Vacation Once Again Costs Taxpayers a Fortune

Moonbattery

The ever industrious Comrade Obama has delayed his 17-day vacation. Once again, the Bitter Half is going ahead without him, costing taxpayers a fortune:

First lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.

The military jet flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

Estimated bare minimum cost of Mooch’s impatience: $100,000. Good thing for her it’s someone else’s money. She recently managed to spend $10 million on vacations in one year.

Exhausted From Ten-Day Martha’s Vineyard Vacation, Obama Heads To Camp David…

Weasel Zippers

I sense a golf course in Obama’s not-so-distant future.

(CNN) — President Barack Obama left for Camp David on Marine One Friday but, in a twist that has left some White House reporters scratching their heads, he apparently arrived at the presidential retreat by car.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained the decision not to land at Camp David was made in advance because of the weather. Marine One landed at an alternate site near Frederick, Maryland and the president and his daughter, Sasha, rode in a motorcade the rest of way to the compound.

Because it is customary practice that the traveling press pool is included whenever the president uses a motorcade, reporters naturally wondered why the pool was not part of the trip or even informed that the president would use a motorcade ahead of time.

Meanwhile, CNN’s weather team found no signs of stormy weather in the area at the time Marine One departed the White House.

Report: Michelle Obama Has Spent $10 Million In Taxpayer Money On Vacations In Last Year…

Weasel Zippers

“Shared sacrifice.”

(Daily Mail) — The Obamas’ summer break in Martha’s Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets.

But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances.

White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.

Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.

The ‘top source’ told the National Enquirer: ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.

What Shutdown? Obama Set for Another Vacation this Weekend

Somebody needs to tell Obama that a shutdown means no vacations and Air Force 1 is grounded.                                                    1 Dragon

 

Fox Nation

The leader of the free world may be coming to Williamsburg for some rest and relaxation if Congress is able to come to agreement on the budget. President Obama and the First Family are planning to visit the area this weekend in what the White House described Wednesday as a “long-planned family trip to Colonial Williamsburg.”

But the trip might get grounded if a government shutdown can’t be averted by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

On Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration established a no-fly zone over Williamsburg that will be in place from Friday through Monday. Jessica Wharton, spokeswoman for the Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport, said the no-fly zone will not affect the arrival and departure times at the airport for this weekend.

Sewage Spill Beaches Obama’s Hawaiian Holiday

Oh the irony, considering the ‘crap sandwiches’ Obama has shoved down the throats of Americans the past two years.

 

Hawaii Reporter reports:

The City & County of Honolulu reports there were an estimated 14 sewage spills during the heavy rainstorm last weekend, at least four of which the state says happened in the windward community of Kailua where President Obama and his family are staying this holiday season.

Those sewage overflows rose from waterlogged manholes and went into the Kaelepulu Stream, which is one of two major waterways in the Kailua district. No total for the sewage gallon count total has been posted yet.

……

To top it off, President Barack Obama and his family are visiting the islands, and in fact, are staying right on Kailua beach in the homes where the brown water, bubbles and all, will finally land.

……

With all the national news in town focusing on the president and his family and the houses they are staying in and the shave ice they are eating, it is surprising that no news networks besides Hawaii News Now and Hawaii Reporter are asking these questions and noting that the local government is intentionally dumping sewage at the beach where president and family are vacationing.

Aloooooo – ha! … Mr. President.

Maybe Obama is not Hawaii’s favorite son after all…

To funny, wherever O goes crap follows. Remember the Martha’s Vineyard incident?

Maybe it is an omen. Hey Obama stop crapping on America. You deserve this, but we deserve better.
