(Washington Times) President Obama's trips this year to the golfing playgrounds of Palm Springs and Key Largo cost taxpayers nearly $3 million for flight expenses alone, according to Air Force records.
The activist group Judicial Watch said the trips in February and March cost $2,952,278 for flight expenses of Air Force One.
Mr. Obama combined his trip to Palm Springs with an event to highlight California's severe drought. Critics noted he spent the rest of the weekend golfing on exclusive courses in the desert that use about 1 million gallons of water per day to keep them green.
