    Another Obama family outing at the taxpayers expense. To include an aircraft carrier, special ambulances flown over, truck loads of bullet proof flown over, hundreds of Secret Service Agents,on and on and on. But take heart. The family decided to skip a safari because it would require extra special forces snipers to take out any lion or cheetah that decided it wanted to attack. 60 to 100 million dollars. What happened to the sequester?

    I wonder how many school kids could have had a once in a lifetime visit to the White House if that money was spent on the tours?

    How much would a ticket for two for a canoe ride over Victoria Falls cost?

    On fox this A.M. Trip was cancelled. The reason given, snipers were to be stationed around the Obamas so no lions or baboons got too close. Too many objections to that. I imagine baboons could be a problem.

    Looks like he has to visit the old country on his own dime in the future.

    That would have been a cheap price if he would have stayed there. Ken U

    This is not a jump over your post but on FOX news at 11 am the price was $100 mil +.
    If we get listing how much money all of them spend on trips yearly how many people could be owners of a small private home at the cost of $100K per would forever make that family self sufficient and off welfare.
    2 BILLION SO THEY SAY TO BUILD UTAH, NO MENTION HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO RUN IT.

    The sad thing is they think they are worthy of such expenditures

    Meanwhile the annual US Navy and Coast Guard ships that visit Portland, Oregon during the Rose Festival for goodwill and some crew R&R were canceled because of the sequester. Um, how, exactly, is not tying up in port and needing to run the main engines at sea saving any money?

    Long before Obama, I have often thought we should have a law forbidding the president to leave the country while in office. It sure would save money. The president might get more work done, too. We have ambassadors and state department people when visits to other countries are needed.

    This is just "wrong". People are hurting in this country and it's morally wrong. "Let them eat cake." In addition, it's wasting money that we have to borrow. You people who voted for him, any way to justify this? Feel free to write. May be you should eat cake. BT100dc
