Cost to Taxpayers of Supporting Obama’s Lifestyle: $1.4 Billion

The indirect costs of Obama’s disastrous presidency are incalculable. As for the direct costs:

Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks. …

Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs to be reined in.

This gives an idea of how it is even possible to waste other people’s money on such a scale:

The president’s dog gets its own high-paid staffer: “Bo made the news when he and his handler were flown to join the president on vacation in Maine,” Gray wrote about the Obama family dog. “It has been reported that the first family’s dog handler was paid $102,000, last year.”

Considering Obama’s greed, arrogance, solipsism, looter mentality, and utter unconcern for the welfare of the country, you could hardly expect anything less, even as the nation goes bankrupt. Louis XVI comes to mind yet again.

    1.4 billion on a bunch of lawn jockeys…absolutely disgraceful.

    …I hope that includes the new White House brewery and it’s massive staff to produce OBOZO-beer. If perpetually drunk, dingbat pelsoi get’s access to that liquor, I’ll bet that cost is in the millions.

    At least they will slow-it-down if he wins again.

    The $102K for a “dog handler” really says “man of the people,” doesn’t it?

  5. Joe says:

    Why the hell are the taxpayers stuck with the bill for his f*cking dog? You want a dog sitter bozo, pay for it yourself!!! He’s no different than his constituents. They think everything is free. A-hole. I really hate this sob.

  6. Tim says:

    This might be normal costs for the president and his family I dont know, but this should be known by ALL and should be enough of a reason to start the much needed revolution. 1.4BILLION when were in a depression? Are you fucking kidding me?

  7. Musicmaven says:

    I truly believe my head is finally going to explode! I do not want to be told EVER, EVER, again by this vile administration that I don’t pay my “fair share” of taxes. I would love to the person in charge of cutting unnecessary items from the Federal Budget……the dog handler and ANY money for Queen Michelle ‘s personal staff would be the first items crossed out! And why is any of my tax money going for their elaborate vacations??

    Put the liberals’ worthless little brown thief into indentured servitude until the money is paid back. I understand the little wimp hangs a mean curtain rod… at 50-cents a rod, considering Barry has the stamina to hang about two a day, he should work his way out of servitude in 60 billion years.

    Sorry, before I believe this I need to see the receipts and a side by side comparison of previous presidents before I start bitching about that. We discredit ourselves if we spew falsehoods when his real failures need attention.

    Wow. Flavor Flav visits the White House!!!!! Whodda thunk.

    Gunner J. : I believe you need to put an empty bucket outside when it’s raining; and see how it fills up. DROP BY DROP. This clown has probably taken more of our dollars for campaign trips than the other 43 combined. The buck has to stop somewhere, and the extravagance that he makes of this is a good place to start.

  12. CleverOne says:

    What are you all going to do when this piece of shit gets re-elected?

  13. GunnerJones says:

    “What are you all going to do when this piece of shit gets re-elected?”

    Go “John Galt” and may myself a general pain in the ass, I’m already doing some of that now. Not much else one can do with a freely elected President, assuming he was elected without too much fraud. Bread and cell phones for the mob, I would weep for the fact that my kids will never know what freedom is.

  14. James McEnanly says:

    The actual Royal family only costs British taxpayers $53 million, a relative bargain. Also, some of them have served their country in their armed forces, and have useful skills. Barack and Michelle wouldn’t know the first thing to do if they ever found theirselves looking at an automobile engine.

  15. TimK says:

    It works out to:
    $3,800,000 per day
    $160,000 per hour
    $2,700 per minute, and, wait for it:
    $44 per second.

  19. Bob Smith says:

    This is as reflective of the outrageous salaries and benefits the new ruling class (public employees) believe themselves entitled to as it is Obama’s profligacy.
