By The Right Scoop


Mark Levin explained tonight that Obama is planning a trip to Africa that may cost us taxpayers upwards of $100 Million. Seriously. And just after all the screeching and howling over the sequester too. Just unbelievable.

    I so admire our FOUNDING FATHERS!
    The peoples in the Country are too timid to start a revolution

  • SheerPolitics

    Going to visit his birthplace, eh? ;-)

  • maxi9

    Love it if he stayed there

  • PoCoTex

    My first reaction is this: “Hey, Hussein! If you don’t like it here, then go back to where you where you came from!” See if he chokes on his cereal on that one.

    My second reaction is this: “If this country spends $100 million so that Hussein will stay there, then I’d say that we’d be getting good value for our dollar for the first time in decades.”

  • tinlizzieowner

    You don’t actually expect King Obama and ‘Marie Antoinette’ to live like the ‘Peasants’ do you? If they were spending their money instead of ours, they would probably vacation at the Motel 6 in Chicago.

    • Orangeone

      tinlizzieowner Sure with the illegal aliens would take up residents in their Chicago mansion.

  • jamesbotts16309

    Remember when Obama said he was going to go through the budget line item by line item and get rid of wasteful spending? Good times, good times.

    • toongoon

      jamesbotts16309  
      He did that between putts on the seventh hole about three years ago. Didn’t you get the memo?

    • notpilgrims

      jamesbotts16309 So you are saying the Secret Service is wasteful spending? The Secret Service protects presidents from murder. It would be a shame if you wanted Obama to be murdered, considering that would be violent, hateful, and also a threat.

      • badbadlibs

        notpilgrims  Sorry chump, nobody here is threatening comrade Obama. That not everyone licks his filthy boots is something you’ll just have to learn to deal with. Get over yourself, you’re not all that, in fact, if you support the most corrupt administration in America’s history, that makes you scum.

  • HillaryShackley

    All the while he is on this jaunt to hell and back our White House is not available to tours by U.S. Citizens- I call this DARK humor.

    • lawngreen

      HillaryShackley   Sure you can, but you know Scoop doesn’t allow that kind of language. And you’d be ashamed of yourself afterwards.

    • notpilgrims

      HillaryShackley He needs Secret Service so he doesn’t get murdered.
      The White House tours program is irrelevant. There was a sequester, so we should cut things that don’t make a difference first, and the White House tours program has little impact. Would you rather have them cut air traffic controllers or fire everyone in the military?

  • JJacobs

    Sit still, Simba…………….. Snipers with rifles are planned as accessories for Obama’s visit to Africa, but to protect him from
    wild animals, not crazed jihadis
    Now watch a tarantula get him….hehe   :-)

  • notpilgrims

    Obama is probably going to Africa for diplomatic reasons or something. Foreign affairs is one responsibility of government.

    • notpilgrims

      Listening to Mark, he said that the Secret Service had to go to Africa to protect Obama. Since Obama is the president, he might be assassinated, because anti-American terrorists love targeting presidents. I guess it’s a good idea to protect him, because presidents getting assassinated is usually a bad thing.

      • lawngreen

        notpilgrims Usually.

        • notpilgrims

          lawngreen notpilgrims Right, because assassination is murder. When you say “usually,” do you mean “not this time”? Is that a threat?

        • lawngreen

          notpilgrims No, it’s not a threat. Why did YOU say “usually”? Are you saying that sometimes it is a good thing?

    • notebene

      notpilgrims Gee….I thought that is why he had Kerry become his Secretary of State…diplomacy!  According to your logic, Africa being a hot bed of instability and danger, the POTUS shouldn’t go there, let alone choose to vacation there!  $100million could be spent here in the USA and stimulate the economy here instead of a hot bed for terrorists!

      • DHardy

        notebene notpilgrims Notebene that would make sense if you were talking about an American President and not some Terrorist Muzzy bro assclown..

        • Orangeone

          DHardy notebene notpilgrims Probably going to visit his brother to ensure the IRS gives him everything he needs to launder money.

        • notpilgrims

          DHardy notebene notpilgrims Sounds kind of anti-American to me, because if you say that the country that President Obama is a president of is really a “Terrorist Muzzy” nation, then you are calling the USA a Terrorist Muzzy Nation.

      • notpilgrims

        notebene notpilgrims So if Kerry went there it wouldn’t require Secret Service or any expenses? Would Kerry just stay at the Xfsljksdoi Youth Hostel?
        Presidents have to do diplomacy, too, sometimes, anyway.

        • notebene

          notpilgrims notebene Really?  Ya don’t say!  You honestly believe that this Imposter in chief is going to do diplomacy in Africa.  You honestly believe that it would cost the exact same amount to send the Secretary of State to Africa as it does the POTUS?  You honestly think that the Secretary of State gets the same level  of security that the POTUS does?   Where does a safari with snipers for our clueless leader fit into all that diplomacy?  Hey, if a shot gun is good enough for Biden and Odumbo wowed us all with his photo op of him shooting at Camp David, he doesn’t need snipers!  Seems to everyone here but you that the POTUS needs to live within the sequester seams that he wrote!   His bloated trip around Europe and Africa, paid for by tax payers, who can’t even go on vacations because of this dismal economy, is nothing more than a waste of our money!  Wow…low info is a naive way to live.

  • publius69

    this is classic papa doc obama: “F.U. american taxpayers, i am president and i will do as i please.”  Anyone think this asshat will forcefully speak out against the persecution and slaughter of Christians in his naive continent?

    • lawngreen

      publius69 Or his assumed continent.

  • kong1967

    So, libs…..how do you feel now about complaining very loudly when Bush took a vacation on his own ranch?  You libs are so intellectually dishonest it makes me want to puke.  Obama goes on vacation every two weeks and spends a massive amount of money and there’s not a peep out of any one of you.
    You liberals disgust me…..A LOT !!!

  • notebene

    Another vacation?  Why?  The man has done nothing but plan vacations and play golf since he got into office 5 years ago!  What happened to Martha’s Vineyard…did they already go and come back?  Oh, I get it…if the Imposter is gone…his merry henchmen can create more scandals that he can claim to not know about because he was in Africa when it happened!  That’s progressives…always creating the next disaster!

  • The Sentinel

    Heh, he feels like he’s “earned” it.
    Ghetto leadership.

  • http://www.inhisdreams.com Pinkflowers

    Who is he meeting with who is so important to our national interests that he should even make a trip at all?  The answer is that there is no one in Africa who is that important.  This is a vacation jaunt.  Not only that, it weakens our image abroad to call it a diplomatic trip.  We are a superpower.  We should not be travelling to Africa to meet with anyone.  If they want to talk to us, they should be travelling to Washington.
    The President needs a travel budget.  Congress needs to get that done.
    Do the Obamas really think that we won’t notice their behavior?  Record numbers on food stamps, people losing their homes, people losing full time jobs, and he wants an exotic vacation to entertain himself.  How about he actually learn about what is going on in the executive branch, which he is supposed to be in charge of.  It’s called doing your job.

    • ChesterSimms

      Pinkflowers 
      Sorry.  But if people had noticed, he would never have been voted into office for a second term.  Remember Michelle’s trip to Spain and India, and those countless vacations, once almost every month.

      • Orangeone

        ChesterSimms Pinkflowers Don’t forget the brat’s Mexico trip with 25 Secret Service agents. And the one to Mandella where they were “senior advisors” so the Obamas could charge the taxpayers for that vacation.

    • lawngreen

      Pinkflowers obama is seeking his own level.

  • DomenickDeRose

    This aberration of an American sitting president is doing what he wants and when he wants to do it. His lolly pop licking, liberal supporters, will do just about anything. lie, intimidate and cover up their failing sinister agenda They do so, just to insure their share of  those sweet government lolly pops, while the rest of us are forced to pay for them.

  • jhomes55

    jaspercarrot Then why was Obama planning to go on a safari?!  Seems like there are more important things that would need to be handled, no???  Man it sure is good to be the king while spending all of OUR money!!  P.S.  I want to give a big shout out to the NSA watching me type this!!

    • notebene

      jaspercarrot jhomes55 Bush didn’t write the Sequester…Odumbo owns it all!  When Bush went on his alleged,( I say that because you are a troll and I plan on checking facts first), this nation was not in a financial gridlock created by homeboy Clinton, fed into by Bush, and accomplished by Odumbo!  Either way, homboy Odumbo needs to answer to the scandals caused by his administration before skipping off on his next vacation!  The current mess is entirely Odumbo’s and drones like you making excuses for him are pathetic!

    • notebene

      jhomes55 jaspercarrot I am assuming that Jasper here, has never heard of teleconferencing, or even better send his Secretary of State to do all of that diplomatic work!  Costs less money and surely, Odumbo’s ingenious pick of John Kerry should suffice for such an all important task!

  • DHardy

    jaspercarrot Bush was a big component for combating AIDS and the on going Crimes against Humanity that are happening in Africa…Obama is related to and was photographed stumping for Raila Odinga a person proven to have committed crimes against humanity…but Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize..Comparing Bush to Obama is like comparing Sister Mother Theresa to Hitler….

    • notebene

      jaspercarrot DHardy If there is a picture of Odumbo stumping with the guy, your the one with the theory that doesn’t add up!  How about that “charity” set up by Odumbo’s half-brother, Malik Obama, in Odumbo’s name which is funding terrorists committing crimes against tribes in Africa?  It’s NEVER Odumbo directly involved, yet he is somehow connected in the controversies surrounding him.  Convenient isn’t it?  And still we have self-proclaimed “enlightened” drones, such as you, guarding him with fairy tales.  If you are keen on him going on vacation on the tax payer’s dime, it’s certain you don’t pay taxes and therefore, your opinion means nada here!

    jaspercarrot Yeah, cuz on TRS  President Bush is our hero. (rolls eyes)
    Stick around a little longer, and you’ll find that’s not the case.
    By the way, you weren’t one of those little kids whose mom told him, “Just because Billy jumps off a bridge doesn’t mean that you should” are you?
    MORAL of the story: If Bush and the other RINOS jump off a bridge, are we obligated to follow them? or are we allowed to think for ourselves and draw our own conclusions?
    This is what differentiates the humans from the animals. Conservatives from evil liberals. We have the capacity to make OUR OWN decisions independent of what a politician dictates to us.

    White House cancels Obama’s African safari after plans are revealed to include a military SNIPER team ‘to take out lions and cheetahs if they threaten first couple’

    • notebene

      stage9 Notice that the plans only got cancelled after they were outted?!  Odumbo and company never would have thought to be financially prudent out of respect for the American people!  Only now that he and his administration have been caught in numerous scandals and his image is hanging by threads, does he back off.  Amazing that we still have trolls show up to defend this indefensible Imposter in chief!

    • lawngreen

      stage9  This is all bad. First, if he’d gone, the Kenyans might have adored him so much that, with his bloated, diseased ego, he might have stayed. Second, it’s bad that SWAT values obama’s life more than a cheetah or a lion. Third, somewhere in Africa there is one more hungry lion. I don’t think it’s right to starve lions. Isn’t that animal cruelty? If obama didn’t want to feed a lion, he could have taken moochelle along ……
      Go, obama. Embrace your roots.
      Embrace a hungry lion, you muslim ughrunt.

    • notebene

      joyfulgiver jaspercarrot But then Odumbo wouldn’t be able to visit his family and take a really cool vacation on the tax payer’s expense!  Jasper claims to pay enough taxes, perhaps Odumbo should contact him to foot the bill?

    • notebene

      jaspercarrot joyfulgiver We would prefer the POTUS use his Secretary of State, or teleconference and save the tax payers the huge and unnecessary expense of his entire entourage traveling at a huge expense!  Odumbo doesn’t not need to travel there himself and he knows it.  It’s another excuse for him to waste our money on himself.  That you can create an excuse for it is laughable…you don’t by any chance work with Jay Carney, do you?

    • jhomes55

      jaspercarrotjoyfulgiverHey, y’all remember when President Obama announced that the US would lend Petrobras $2 billion to help them develop more offshore oil drilling?!?!  All the while stonewalling the Keystone pipeline that would provide thousands of jobs and bring money to states across the heartland!!  Heck, even if the KP created 100 jobs, it would be more than Obama ever has!  Remember when those shovel ready jobs weren’t as “shovel ready” as Obama thought.  Harrrrrrdy haaaarrr harrrrrrr you jackwagon!!!

    Hahahahahaha …. oh my, you had me going there for a minute. I thought you were serious.
    … you are? You’re serious? Oh well. it’s true, obama’s done all he can do to build U.S. business opportunties and create US jobs at home. Our economy is in much better shape than when he took office; we’re well on our way to energy independence now that obama has undone Bush’s policy of shutting down the Keystone pipeline and destroying the coal industry and refusing to open up new oil leases .. ummm …. wait a mimute … that wasn’t Bush – that was …. oh… bah ….maaaaaa!
    Well, at least obama got everyone back to work and closed the border where terrorists as well as thousands of crimial illegals were pouring in … uh, no, I forgot. Governor Jan Brewer tried to do that and …. obama’s regime sued Arizona.
    But you can’t deny that obama’s regime has … er, no, I guess no that either… then how about …. uh-uh. that won’t fly.
    Oh crumbs. I guess the only thing obama has done to stimulate the economy is sell millions of guns and take umpty-‘leven vacations, spending tens of millions of his … own? … money… I mean taxpayer’s dollars…
    I give up. George Bush, please return our calls.

We need to get him out right now ! WAKE UP AMERICA, WE ARE BEING LED TO SLAUGHTER !  “Quote” A MAN RISE TO POWER IN THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH, HE WILL SPEW LIE’S AND BRING ANARCHY TO ALL PEOPLES !!!
