Obama's Austere Christmas Plans

Get a load of the cost of the Obamas' upcoming Christmas vacation to Hawaii -- well over $4,000,000 for 20 days of R & R.
The total cost (based on what is known) for a 20-day round trip vacation to Hawaii for the President and his family and staff and security is more than $4 million.
Hawaii Reporter annually has requested details on the cost of the President’s trip, but the White House will not release any figures, citing security concerns. A spokesperson has maintained the costs are "in line" with other presidential vacations.Hawaii Reporter has sought to determine the cost of vacations for the current president and last two presidents but the Government Accountability Office referred Hawaii Reporter back to the White House spokesperson.
We certainly cannot expect him to implement austerity measures in his second term when it comes to his family and their luxurious lifestyle. Something tells me this is only the tip of the iceberg in what he will be sponging up for his family in the next four years.

And all we can do is bend over and take it.
The least he can do is pay for the leis for the 100s of
servants attendants who will accompany them!
