Michelle Obama lists daughters as "senior staffers "to justify expensive African vacation and safari. Judicial watch said the U.S. Air Force provided a C-32 - a Boeing 757 modified by the military for the purpose of flying big-wigs around the world to fly the Frist Lady and her entourage to and from Africa, at the cost of $424,142 another $928. for meals for the 21 people who made the trip.
The Obama daughters were listed on the manifest as "senior staff."
This trip was as much as opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business, said the Judicial Watch president.
"This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our extended military.
"The nation is suffering with economy sputtering, the national debit soaring and Obama's economic rescue policies not only failing but actively making things worse. Meanwhile, the First Lady justifies an expensive trip to Africa to take a vacation and safari with her daughters by saying it's "official business" and even going so far as to list her children as "staffers.'"
The level of arrogance and dishonesty on display here is typical Chicago Politics.
Maybe this is what the Obama family considers sacrifice along with a $4 million Christmas vacation.
