Taxpayers Shell Out $2.9 Million For Just Two of Obama’s Golf Outings In 2014…
[Image: 34eyj6a.jpg]

Total travel costs for all of the Obamas and Bidens vacations now more than $40 million. So libs, lets talk about inequality....


The travel costs for vacations taken by the first family and the Bidens have reached over $40 million with the Air Force’s revelation that two golf outings by President Obama this year cost $2.9 million, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch.

The group said that the Air Force provided documents and records that put the price of the first family’s trip to Key Largo, Florida in March at $885,683 just for flying Air Force One. The travel costs to golf in Palm Springs, California in February, where the president also met with King Abdullah II of Jordan, was $2,066,594, said the Air Force documents, according to Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch has been filing repeated Freedom of Information Act requests for travel costs and the Air Force has provided many documents during the administration.

So far, Judicial Watch said that it has tabulated vacation travel costs, mostly just Air Force jet time, at over $40 million. Far more money is spent on accommodations, communications, rooms and cars for staff, security and U.S. Secret Service protection, Navy and Coast Guard ships offshore and the prepositioning of cars and helicopters, but those costs are not usually revealed. [...]

Judicial Watch Obtains Records Revealing Obama’s 2014 Palm Springs and Key Largo Golf Outings Cost Taxpayers $2,952,278 for Flight Expenses Alone.

Like Owl says, the more golf he plays, the less time he has to screw up my life.

$2.9 million for Obama's golf outting? That would probably come to something in the order of $1 per stroke given his lame-ass game.

Dunno, last Spin Room post he made was in 2015 so he might as well be.

Oh and there's this

But I wouldn't worry. There's plenty of evidence the AUP doesn't apply to you like everyone else.
