Obamunism! Michelle Obama’s Lavish Lifestyle

From the Mail:

The Obamas’ summer break on Martha’s Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets.

But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances.

White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10 million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year…

The exact dollar amount isn’t really all that important – what is important i that, clearly, the First Lady has been living a high end lifestyle while America has sunk further in to debt and poverty.  This is just insensitive…and unwise; if Michelle Obama cares anything for her husband’s political future, she’ll knock it off.

Under the best of circumstances, moving the President around takes a lot of money…just in actual staff the bill is huge.  When you add in the cost of staying some place, providing food and then the complex security arrangements necessary for the President, you start to get in to mind-boggling figures.  President and Mrs. Obama should have a little more sense – sure, the President does need a vacation.  It is the most demanding job in the world…but the White House is pretty swell and Camp David is nearby.

Hopefully the mounting criticism of the President will force a bit of re-thinking on the part of the Obamas.  It is time to live cheap, while America tries to recover.

      I’ll bite; Obama’s been in office 946 days, and he has 537 days until his successor takes the oath of office. What is the significance of 977 days?

        Thanks goodness…I was worried there…I can just barely deal with 537. 538 would have been too much…

    “…sure, the President does need a vacation. It is the most demanding job in the world…but the White House is pretty swell and Camp David is nearby.”

    And this has to do with the First Lady how? Obviously, he has not been listen to her and eating his peas and aurugra (fancy lettuce?).

    Looters, thieves, grifters, low class, low life, POS’s both.

    I seriously doubt the country could survive 4 more years of Obama, but it is an absolute certainty that the country could not survive 4 more years of Michelle.

        You are kidding, right? You link to an Obama-loving Bush-hating private opinion blog as your “source”.

        When did Bush go anywhere on vacation except to his own house or his family place in Maine? When did Laura Bush take elaborate vacations with entourages?

        What a hypocritical whiner you are. Get over yourself. Bush took his staff to Texas with him, it is documented, it is a matter of record, he entertained foreign dignitaries in Texas, he used it as a base to make official trips, he WORKED in Texas.

        Educate yourself a little more.

      That link would be relevant if the SUBJECT OF THE THREAD WAS ABOUT THE OBAMATEUR HIMSELF but it is not.

      “Michelle’s Obama’s Lavish Lifestyle” should have been your first clue.

      Details….. details……

      I see you still avoid the fact the obAMATEUR said himself on several occasions “I will not rest until….” (insert fix economy, create jobs, shrink the deficit etc etc.). Again, his actions are different from his words.

      Why is that?
