White House Defends Barack Obama’s African Boondoggle … Obama’s $100M Africa trip ‘great bang for our buck’


White House defends Obama’s $100 million trip to Africa as a ‘great bang for our buck’.  Obama was also supposed to be the smartest president ever and care about the middle class as well. As stated at Michelle Malkin, wasn’t these the same people who said that investments into Solyndra (VIDEO) and other green energy companies were the same? How did that “bang for our buck” work out for America? Oh, that’s right, they are bankrupt. Maybe the comment that should be emphasized is when Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said, ”the White House doesn’t determine the cost of security.” Actually, Obama nor Michelle Obama care what it cost the tax payers is more accurate. Just curious, what part about the African safari was a “bang for our buck”? Even though it has since been canceled because the WAPO actually questioned and criticized the event, the fact of the matter is it was initially planned. The occupants of the White House not only don’t care about the cost of the security, they care little about any tab they make the struggling tax payers pay. America, its not just the IRS who has been pissing our money away, you can start by auditing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see where our money has gone.


President Obama’s $100 million trip to African offers “great bang for our buck,” the White House said Friday.

Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes defended the cost of Obama’s upcoming trip to South Africa, Senegal and Tanzania, which could cost taxpayers as much as $100 million.

He said the White House doesn’t determine the cost of security and argued traveling to the often overlooked region would help the U.S.

“Frankly, there will be a great bang for our buck for being in Africa, because when you travel to regions like Africa that don’t get a lot of presidential attention, you can have very long-standing and long-running impact from the visit,” Rhodes said.

WHAT A JOKE, Americans are suffering and Barack, Michelle and the kids in tow are off the Africa at a $100 million price tag to “We the People” and we get the BS in return that the trip is a great bang for our buck. Who, but a community agitator spends $100 million at a time when so many Americans are struggling? Obama wants people to be divisive and say things about him to be able to say, see the Right is unhinged. When the reality is,  this slacker, scandal plagued president will do anything to take the people’s eye off the multitude of scandals going in in his administration. This president has claimed that he was for the middle class and the poor and demonized the rich 1 prevent. WAKE UP AMERICA … THE OBAMA’S ARE THE 1%!!!

      Actually, the South African Muslim Lawyers Association want to arrest him for war crimes (use of drones) against Muslims

      Apparently he has no Presidential immunity in South Africa. Sooooo…

      The national broadcaster quoted MLA spokesperson Yousha Tayob as saying that the country could arrest the president under the Rome Statute.


      Now what a hoot that is……

      The Blaze:
      No matter the odds of an arrest would be infinitesimal, the media publicity fueled by local African Muslim outcry could be killer awesome.

      One hundred million could build two hundred or more miles of the Southern Border fence.

      There is no compelling reason for this trip. It is just more “in your face” of doing whatever Barry chooses.

      There has not been a budget passed for all the years he has been in office. If this is the way he and his administration thinks, the money needs to be cut off.

      Funny, I thought White House tours were cancelled because the government didn’t have money to keep them going.

      Oh, and in case anyone reading this gets steamed because their royal majesties are spending more of the money we are in ever shorter supply of, here’s a real kicker–the administration just sent $1.3 BILLION of our money to Egypt! Did it in defiance of Congressional restrictions too, I might add:

      f.e.m.a. just refused to give the town that was decimated by the fertilizer plant explosion any more money. they say the $57 million required to rebuild the town doesn’t meet their guidelines.

      i could spend the rest of today and tomorrow recounting the ways obama has failed in his oath to protect this country and the constitution

      i was totally depressed when i found out his safari was canceled. a man has to have his dreams.

      # 1 Shhhoo!!!!!!…. You know he is reading this don’t tell him otherwise he is going to cancel his trip.

      I can’t see where a visit from Obama to any country would, in any way, benefit us. He’s hells fire and damnation. And why would you want to go to Africa where the the South African Muslim Lawyers Association wants to arrest you? What’s he up to that we don’t know about?

    8. katts on June 16th, 2013 12:36 am

      He canceled the Safari portion

      Its being portrayed as too many safety resources required against possible wildlife attacks


      Lion, Tigers, and Bears my backside.

      Resource issues do not make sense. More like the “wildlife” danger is better defined as the Muslim threat.

      Imagine being in an open African plain, steel plated car, snipers & all, where the Muslim locals are less than happy with your bombing (drones) their brethern.

      If African Muslim forces go after him, Mooch, and the family, what a freak’in International firework show, new news for a week.

      Greedy freeloaders of the American people.

      And they have to take special ammunition with them because of the wild animals. I think the special ammunition is for and directed to the the two legged animals.

      Obama’s planned trip to Africa was so——so—— questionable, except for the fact that African’s would love him there, with the exception of Muslims.

      Fear of impeachment perhaps escalating to treason could be a reason. Maybe if he is close to thinking or knowing it is going to happen he may want to live in a place of refuge. Banqui, capital of Central African Republic and other outlying countries will not extradite to the US. Population of 605,989 in Bangui. Very little English spoken, the basic language is French. However, Bangui was seized by rebels in March 2013. The world has 50 countries that will not extradite but you would think Africa would be his #1 choice. It wouldn’t surprise me if he did, not going to punish me, the Messiah.
