Obama's $100,000,000 gaggle.

July 1, 2013

"Government exists to serve the people, not the other way around"  Barack Obama's speech in South Africa.

Let's talk about Obama and family vacation that is costing us $100,000,000.  What have we received for our wasted money?

First the $100,000,000:  Obama brought his wife, kids and Mother-in-law plus ? Who knows.  FLOTUS also took up to 21 staff members with her.  How would you like a vacation like that: body guards, all expenses paid and not by you.  Her airfare,alone, for this boondoggle was $424,000, This does include guests and her staff.  Talk about a free ride.

"Obama blamed the upsurge of terrorist groups on the fact that “countries are not delivering for their people and where there sources of conflict and underlining frustrations that have not been adequately dealt with".  Stated at a town hall meeting for African youths.  Apparently he was not thinking about the conflict and underlying frustrations that the majority of Americans are feeling now. Higher taxes, high unemployment, mistrust of government are all contributing factors.

(CNN) -
U.S. President Barack Obama pledged $7 billion Sunday to help combat frequent power blackouts in sub-Saharan Africa.  Where does Mr. Obama going to receive the funding for this?  Maybe he can ask the Chinese since we owe them so much now.  Oh the Chinese are angry at us, in case you forgot.  I know: we will just print more money, money that we don't have. Oh yeah, while were at it we will increase taxes (everyone can chip in more).

President Obama visited Robbins Island Prison where Nelson Mandela was held for years. News outlets reported this a very solemn event, as well it should be.  Mr. Obama signed the guest book "On behalf of my family".  Appears he forgot who paid for his trip, We The People.  Not a mention of the
United States.  This is arrogance.

To sum this trip up so, Obama's trip is all about him, as is his presidency.  In a little over two days he has spent 7.1 billion of your money.  Hardly wait to see the remainder of his trip.  Back to the quote at the beginning of this post.  Who is serving who in Obama's mind.

  1. Our government is too fat. It eats too much. Obama may be the worst but the entire American government will have to be streamlined before anything can change.
