Queue the music folks! The Obamas are going back on vacation. It’s been a rough campaign after all, and who deserves it more than our commander in chief? Preparing to raise taxes on millions of Americans, after convincing most young people that socialism is no longer a dirty word is very, very hard work! We at Conservative Island would like to wish the Comrade in Chief a very relaxing vacation on the taxpayers dime. If you’re going to drive us over the Fiscal Cliff, you might as well do it in bermuda shorts.Us worry? Fiscal cliff be damned! All of that important stuff that he campaigned on needing to do quickly will probably just work itself out and be forgotten over the coming months.
The Hawaii Reporter is now saying that residents of the exclusive limo liberal enclave where the Obamas like to stay in Kailuana Place have been alerted that their beach will be restricted for twenty days while the Obamas come to town, and their waters will be crawling with secret service, coast guard and Navy SEALs.
The costs of the trip, along with putting up all of their friends at a plush Waikiki hotel is planned to come in just south of $4 million dollars. The biggest expense of the trip is the Obamas use of Air Force 1, which costs about $1.6 million to fly to Hawaii EACH WAY. Other costs include secret service housing, and hotel rooms for the coast guard staff on hand.
