As -- as we've got the president and the real Obama we shine the spotlight on the illegally life of our 44 president.
The man who will no -- set records for the number of rounds of golf played while in office.
He is are ready teed off a whopping 94 times since taking the oath about -- -- any more rounds than his predecessor.
Yes R&R is something -- this president has mastered and apparently never stops planning -- his next trip.
I want to thank.
Presidents on those and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality.
In the beautiful city of about -- -- We're having a wonderful time and and usually when I take -- summit troops part of my job was to scout out where.
I may want to bring Michelle back.
Later for vacation saw.
-- I make no mistake the first family -- circle the globe on their private luxurious vacation since 2009.
Destinations including but certainly not limited to mount Rushmore Hawaii.
Vail Aspen in Panama City masses -- -- Main North Carolina and -- even Spain.
No the president himself wasn't on all those -- security concerns will prevent us from ever knowing the exact cost.
But some estimates do exist according to the Hawaii reporter dot com -- seventeen day Christmas vacation in 2010.
Cost you the taxpayer more than four million dollars in other words.
The GSA has nothing on this White House joining me now with more as we continue to -- the president the mainstream media won't do it -- -- from the Fox Business Network.
A million and -- Eddie from AMA production is good to see you both.
You know what let me just show what he said about corporate fat cats.
Watch this fly in -- Vegas.
As what Obama said.
You are not going to be able to do about -- big bonuses until you pay taxpayers back.
You can't get corporate jets.
You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas.
-- go down -- the Super Bowl on the taxpayer is not a.
We have five trillion in new Obama daddies take a lot of lot of trips himself you know sometimes when you see the record of this president maybe he should spend more time playing golf keep him out of the Oval Office look what he's done good point that look that's that's -- joking aside.
GSA the junket to Las Vegas that's the kind of thing you get when you vastly expand the scope.
And scale and spending of government its massive government massive spending.
Massive jump shooting that's what you get at such a contrast when you look at what the president does on these vacations the lavish vacation.
At the same time we've got a faltering a -- -- Massive unemployment and running up massive debt.
It's a real clash in between the lavish lifestyle all the time spent -- vacationing and what's going on with the economy and his record.
How many vacations you -- here could make that mini vacation sergeant urged him to be Ellis had a very -- -- -- and and whatever kind of take you leave my -- sporting events -- school that whatever does.
-- give -- play golf.
What I know I don't actually have time for golf.
I don't know I don't golf lot of time for golf I played once and a while that's why the -- every -- bulls in the woods because I can't hit the stupid ball because I don't practice could have tiger play 94 times in three years.
-- -- -- -- I unwrapped the global summit right now that the global economic -- right now I'm telling a book twenty hours at a the day.
Because -- maximizing the opportunity to sit across the table with world leaders from Israel Panama Cuba Colombia.
To be able to get into their brain to be -- say how do we work together.
They listen -- -- taking vacation time and not maximizing the opportunity is bad leadership yeah I.
I think that's what it comes down to.
Is it's a good political strategy.
To a go after the president for playing -- the -- and taking lavish they can and basketball and basketball and it is that a good strategy.
I think it would be better to concentrate on the president's radical.
The radical what do you -- -- -- very pull it looks like a clash doesn't it looks like lavished us on the part of the president.
With a weak economy.
But you know you could look kind of small and almost surely you're chased down the -- the wanted to -- -- -- he plays class warfare every day.
You know these these golf that it's not cheap to play -- a contradiction -- he's he's the one lecturing you know these corporations to get off to corporate jets and stop taken trips to Vegas until they pay back the taxpayers.
He's accumulated five trillion in new -- does America begrudge its chief executive playing along the gulf of flying around on Apple's long probably yes what is so lavish -- the countries in such bad shape -- we've got five trillion dollars at the -- think it's look when you take get a vacation.
Every two months a little over every two months -- That seems to me to be excessive.
Maybe -- I don't begrudge any president a vacation.
But in tough economic times.
Forcing taxpayer to pay for this beating up called wealthy Americans class warfare doesn't it seem like a huge contradiction.
And it's nothing that -- CEO would deal meeting as a -- my company's.
That when my company didn't need me I am focus and drilled it down -- -- get it to the next point of positive forward move and that's provable on Paper I would never insult my employees to take time off.
When they needed me the most is disgraceful.
All right million good -- -- the summit I hope you do well there I'm not so sure about opening up the trade with Cuba but good luck.
And Stuart thank you for being with us if I'm not --
