Obama family vacation could cost America $100k
President Barack Obama has told Congress that he will put off plans to fly to Hawaii this holiday if it means lawmakers can cut a deal that will keep taxes down.

The first lady will still enjoy a little fun at America’s expense, however, and you’re buying.

Urging Congress to pass an extension of the payroll tax cut before the new year begins, President Obama said this week that he will forgo his planned vacation to Hawaii if it means it will help iron out a deal that will lessen the woes of the American people. That doesn’t mean that the rest of the Obama clan will be kept in DC, though. Michele Obama and the couple’s two daughters still intend on flying to Hawaii this season even if it doesn’t mean the president will join them.

The estimated cost of the Obama’s little getaway even without the president? Around $100,000 of taxpayer money.

The website White House Dossier reports that the trip last year for Michelle Obama alone cost $63,000 in airfare, not including other normal expenses, let alone secret service protection. Only this summer, the couple also caused outrage after the family flew to Martha’s Vineyard for a private get-away — on two separate jets only four hours apart, something the media quickly labeled a public relations disaster.

Because the President happens to be half black, that automatically makes this a racist thread? You're a pretty ignorant and shallow thinker.

And just because the other Presidential families may have done this in the past...I suppose you think it's ok for it to continue to happen. Especially in the economic situation that we're in the middle of right now.

I usually hold back on my judgements...but I'm sick of people like you and comments like yours. You are truly an idiot.

First of all, you don't even live here. Secondly, this is one of the worst economies in our country's history, so spending that amount of money on one of many vacations (or even taking a vacation at all...how many do they need?) is tantamount to saying "Let them eat cake!"
