Obama and Pelosi – Would they be in the 1% do you think?


Have you ever enjoyed a meal at a nice restaurant, but when the check came your first thought was, “There isn’t any food that is actually that good?”

Surely there isn’t any hotel suite that is this great!

President Barack Obama and Speaker of the Hous...

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, who served as Speaker of the House and is now head of the House minority, is once again spending her Christmas at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Kaupulehu in Kona on the island of Hawa, Pelosi spent the last two Christmas holidays in Kona at the same hotel in an elaborate suite that rents for $10,000 a night.

It isn’t just the overnight that was expensive:

Pelosi has been escorted by local police during her last two holiday visits to Hawaii Island at a cost of $34,000 to local taxpayers.

While Nancy enjoys the Kona, the Obama family seems to be enjoying their vacation as well.

In a Hawaii Reporter story published last week, the total cost (based on what is known) for a 17-day round trip vacation to Hawaii for the President and his family and staff and security is an estimated $4,113,038.

That includes $3,629,622 for separate travel for the president and his family, $151,200 for housing for security, $72,216 for staff to stay in one of Hawaii’s most luxurious resorts, the Moana Surfrider in Waikiki, and local police protection and ambulance detail for $260,000.

All you evil, rich people who make $250,000 a year, be aware that when Obama gets back to Washington, and when he is re-elected, he has not forgotten! You are going to begin to pay your fair share in taxes and he really is with all you who Occupy Wall Street! He is on your side!

  1. I have been wondering what in the heck 10k for a room buys one!!! I have to say, that is a little over half of what I make in one year. I can’t even imagine! Heck, I didn’t even know there were rooms that cost that much for ONE night. Permanent room service, as in, they just STAY in the room waiting, plying you with grapes, fanning you with the palm leaves, until you make a request?!?!? Gold-plated faucets? I bet they wouldn’t even let me LOOK in a room like that, Shoot, probably wouldn’t make it to the lobby. 🙂
