Paying the Price for Obama's Imperial Lifestyle

There's a high price to be paid for Comrade Obama's regal lifestyle. Fortunately for him, others pay it. Remember when Chairman Zero had the airspace over Oahu closed off for two weeks during prime tourist season for his vacation? The bill has come due.

Representatives of nearly two dozen air tour companies and flight schools yesterday said they collectively lost approximately $200,000 when their businesses were substantially restricted or shut down during President Obama's Christmas vacation here. …
The aviation company owners said they were not informed of flight restrictions until Dec. 19, and many of them had no option but to shut down entirely during the president's visit, said Pat Magie, president of Island Seaplane Service Inc. on Lagoon Drive.
The restrictions essentially banned flights within a 30-mile radius of the house in Kailua where Obama and his family were staying.

Supposedly closing off airspace over a massive area was necessary to keep the man-child president safe from terrorists. Meanwhile, his pro-terrorist administration continues to dismantle the defenses that keep the rest of us safe.

Safe from the skies.
