    Obama’s Hawaii vacation cost

    President Barack Obama and his family just spent their Christmas and New Year’s holidays in Kailua.

    Time to pay tab for First Family's holiday vacation

    The issue is not that the president is resting, the question is, how much he spends on it (note, not personal money) and does he deserve it?
    He doesn't give a damn about the expense to the taxpayer plain and simple.
    I`m frightened realizing that fly to and from Hawaii costs $7,7 million

    Did you also go home for the holidays? Hawaii isn't a "vacation destination" for Obama. It's where he grew up.
    Thanks from Z Warrior, Babba, Friday13 and 1 others

    All that money and I bet the kids were still bored and being kids did not appreciate just how lucky they are. They could have taken them to a local amusement park or water park for a lot less.

    The President (any U.S. President) doesn't have the option of cutting costs when travelling. The first family is not permitted to travel coach on U.S. Air to save thousands of dollars.

    Go Greyhound! The driver kind of looks like Joe Biden.

    The damn president and his family should have been locked in the white House and never allowed to go anywhere! Especially not home for Christmas! How dare they!
