Obama’s Outrageous Tab for the G-20 Summit


From IR Review:

Last month, the President spent one night in Brisbane, Australia, before speaking at the G20 Summit.

Now, thanks to a little digging by The Weekly Standard, we know that no expense was spared for him.

The bill for the one night’s stay exceeded $1.7 million at the Brisbane Marriott, whose tagline is “The Epitome of Five Star Elegance.”

Here are the details:

  1. The presidential delegation required 4,096 rooms.
  2. Three different hotels were used.
  3. Logistics, security, and negotiating teams were there in advance of – and subsequent to – his visit.
  4. The entire floor he stayed on was completely stripped down and examined prior to his arrival.
  5. His suite was aptly named “The Presidential Suite” and cost just over $2,135 for the night.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail provided some insight on how some other leaders were accommodated, and there’s a stark difference:

British PM Cameron’s room cost 1/2 that amount, Russia’s Putin spent 74% less, and Australian PM Abbott’s room cost 88% less.

Chinese President Jinping was the silver-medal winner and spent only $1,400 for his room.

And Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, was forced to get by in a room that was only $171.60 per night.

When it comes to big-spending and making an impressive display of opulence, it seems our President is second to none.

Is that bulletproof glass I see ? Did we have to fly that in on a special plane?


Geez, Louise, did we spend enough money for this POS to spend one night in Australia??? We paid for over 4,000 rooms for one man to spend one night, when it should have easily been a few hundred at the most.  This could easily rank second to their Africa trip.

Everything he and his family does costs us mega-dollars. While the rest of us shop for the best rate on a decent hotel, he goes to the extreme of seeing just how extravagant he can be. He really does think he’s the emperor.

    Outrageous is an understatement. He could have stayed at the US Embassy. It is already secure. 4,092 rooms????? For what? That’s absurd by any definition.

    Imagine if an R acted this way. The screams from the left would be 24/7.

    Well, my guess is Moochie had a couple hundred “guests”, then figure in these two are living “n _ _ _ er rich” at our expense for as long as they can get away with it. Nox is right. Substitute Obama for BUSH, and watch the lefty heads explode.

    Another one for the “Beyond Insanity” file. And the poor Japanese Prime Minister at only $172.00 per night~!

    Weep Roundly, King Charles,,, You have been outdone, And King Louie, your extravagance a pittance.

    Kathy, he is doing as much damage as he possibly can in every single area that he can to BREAK us financially!

    They needed to haul his skinny butt out to the airport where Air Force 1 is and let him stay there. It’s secured, doesn’t have to be ripped apart, no need for the Feds to stake out the hotel before and after his visit and sure wouldn’t need 4K + rooms for the night.

    I still think we should invest in a boot for AF1 so he can’t take off as much.
