The White House billed the trip as an "official" journey, so taxpayers picked up the costs for the slightly more than 14-hour round trip on Air Force One.

The Defense Department pegs the operating costs for the president's 747 at $100,219 per flight hour. Double it to include the backup plane that always accompanies the president. Add the costs of the Air Force 757 that Mrs. Obama used to fly to Copenhagen earlier in the week. It adds up to nearly $3-million dollars.

And that doesn't include the aircraft used to fly the presidential limousines and Secret Service vehicles there as well.

14 hours for Obama's round trip...

Oh, did we mention the carbon footprint? This is the Administration that required car dealers to disable the car engines that were traded-in, in the cash for clunkers program to keep that polluting clunker off of America's roadways...
Insanity...
