President Barack Obama** The Chief Idiot of the United States is not the only VIP to be spending his holidays in exclusive islands in Hawaii.
While the president and his family are on a 17-day holiday vacation in beach front homes in Kailua, Oahu, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is spending her Christmas at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu in Kona, reports the Hawaii Reporter.
The California Democrat's suite, which she has rented for the past two Christmases, room goes for a whopping $10,000 a night. Pelosi has been escorted by local police during her two visits, at a cost of $34,000 to local taxpayers, the Reporter says.
Obama’s trip to the island of Oahu is much higher. Last week, the Reporter added up the total cost of his vacation to be more than $4 million.I guess we could put things into perspective, though -- $4 million, next to our national debt that the Chief Idiot of the United States has run up, is like pissin' in the ocean.
