Obama's LA trip for TV show will cost you $2 million by Andrew Malcolm - Investors.com

That's about $250K per laugh

This is that time of year when millions of American families begin designing their humble summer vacation, that much-anticipated special week or perhaps 10 days of togetherness, fun and relaxation that generate the next two months of credit card bills.

After the kids are in bed these evenings, Moms and Dads calculate which vacation nights on that trip will be Motel 6 and which one will be the splurge at a Holiday Inn with indoor pool.

So, it may be some comfort for those middle-class families to know that their president, who professes such concern for middle-class families, doesn't worry about such mundane things as travel costs. All thanks to the hard work of American taxpayers.

In fact, get out your checkbook right now because the Democrat's about to drop some $2 million of other peoples' money for a few minutes on a late-night TV show.

This president is good with spending a lot on travel. He took the entire family, including grandma, to Alabama last weekend. And according to latest figures, the Obamas' last three Christmas vacations in Hawaii have cost taxpayers more than $15.5 million just in transportation expenses.

The first family annually rents the same beachfront house in Kailua near Honolulu. It only has 13 bedrooms, but somehow they make do.

The watchdog outfit, Judicial Watch, files regular Freedom of Information Act lawsuits to obtain Obama travel cost information from history's most transparent administration.

Judicial Watch reports, for example, that last December's nine-hour-plus one-way Air Force One flight cost American workers $3,672,798.60 to get the Obama clan and staff to and from tropical sunshine. That's about 802 times what the average American family spent on holiday season gifts last year.

By comparison, another Obama family vacation tradition, the annual August time-off on Martha's Vineyard, was a real bargain, costing taxpayers only $400,666.30.

Air Force One is a luxury 747 complete with soundproof bedroom, shower and window blinds run by a remote control, so no president need bother pulling cords to darken his room. It costs about $206,000 per flight hour for the Air Force to operate the jumbo craft.

Thus, for instance, when Barack and Michelle zip up to New York of an evening for dinner and a show, that costs taxpayers almost a half-million dollars just for round-trip, fixed-wing air travel.

Last year, as some may recall, was a midterm election year that saw Democrat Obama speak at a flurry of party fundraisers all over the country where liberal donor diners paid as much as $32,400 per plate (gratuity not included).
