Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Accused of Being $10 Million 'Vacation Junkie'

Is Michelle Obama a modern-day Mary Lincoln? Anonymous (so far) White House sources are saying it's a fair comparison as the First Lady does to President Obama what Mary Todd did to her husband by spending taxpayer money on luxuries like it was drying up forever. Which is possible...
In the last year alone Michelle Obama is accused of spending more than $10 million on vacations and expensive accommodations, all on the public dime. The report, broken by the National Enquirer, is light on the sources, but heavy on the details. The picture painted seems to go way beyond what can be expected for the normal expenses incurred protecting the First Lady and her family.
One key complaint centers on the secrecy over Mrs. Obama's staff listing. Who are they and how many are there? So far, there's never been an official public disclosure.
But the main dispute stems from the fact that Michelle Obama has already spent more than 6 weeks away from her public duties.
Most of that time was eaten up by separate travel from her husband, on military aircraft, and staying at the most expensive and luxurious hotels. All the while running up sky-high bills for top-shelf alcohol, food and personal luxury perks.
The Obamas, of course, are entitled to vacations and having a good time, together as a family. But shouldn't they be held accountable for gouging the taxpayer? Can't they pay for the perks out of their own pocket? Especially at a time like this?
President Obama will have a hard enough time getting re-elected next year. His wife, like that of his self-professed hero and role model, Abraham Lincoln, shouldn't be making it harder for him.
Maybe even impossible?
Ah ,so this is why compares himself to Lincoln
Moose Shell, jus’ sharin’ the sacrifice.
What can you expect from a sistah from de ‘hood?
Brought to you by REAL JOURNALISTS of the National Enquirer who happened to break the John Edwards scandal.
Shows you how far journalism and the search for a “hard story” from the MSM has fallen.
FUBO and your Wookie too.
Michelle better scarf up on all those benefits she can cram in her ample mouth while she can. Him, too. This dream’s gonna come to an abrupt end one of these days.
Not from this source, or at all that I can find.
MO = another low-life liberalwith an open checkbook. She doesn’t care about anyone or anything but herself.
This is what they wanted. Not the job but the perks. Now we all have to pay the price for the idiots that voted him into the WH.
Ms 10 pounds of baloney in a 1 pound bag certainly didn’t need a private plane to shuttle her girth to Mahthas Vinyahd, she could have gone with the Chief Grifter. The Wookie needs to pay her own way.
So I'm working six days a week just to keep food on the table and pay the rent and this is where a huge chunk of my paycheck goes?
OMG! You said exactly what I was thinking but was too p*ssed off to type......LOL
She’s a welfare queen stealing our money. Get a job!
Oh dear! How can people be so cruel?
The National Enquirer has always employed very professional journalists...at least in my lifetime. I far more trust the accuracy of their stories than I do of, say, CBS News or AP. The so called professional news organizations are agenda driven to emphasize stories that harm one side over the other.
The Enquirer only has an agenda for the sensational.
We should start calling her Imelda.
[Ah ,so this is why compares himself to Lincoln]
“I get more criticism than Lincoln did (from Mary Todd for not spending more on her. Moochelle is driving me nuts!)”
You only work 6 days a week?!?! What did you do to get a day off??
Your source IS different from the earlier posted threads. For some fun reading click on the keyword moochelle.
Glad I could help. ;D
I’m surprised I didn’t spell something wrong. I usually do because these people have me POd 24-7.
And if so, would they not be taxable?
I'm sure the IRS will be right on it.
I get perks.
Not pictured: Milk shake and soda ...
To be fair - it WAS a Diet soda ...
Hard to figure out who I hate worse? The fascist racist commie pig 0dumb0 or his butt ass oooogly wife mabelle moochelle. Either way, they will both roast in Hell & the Lake of Fire for eternity along with the rest of their miserable family & the idiots who voted to put these two frauds into office. Pox be upon them all!
Think how many people without jobs, losing homes and filing for bankruptcy will vote for these people once again as the media sells them on more hope and change.
I can't sleep at night for thinking about it.
Imelda had all those shoes but small feet...
If even half of the Michelle stories are true it is almost enough to make me feel sorry for Obama. Almost.
This administration is such a trainwreck. Hope and change has turned into misery and despair. The new motto “WTF” describes this administration perfectly. Even the President’s base that vaulted him to such an unlikely victory are starting to question the lavish lifestyle.
Accountability is here at last.
$350,000 per year as a Diversity Outreach Consultant at the University of Chicago AFTER The Messiah was elected a State Senator.
Her role was so important that it was not filled after she left to go to D.C.
Ghetto trash...both of them.
Grifters pure and simple. They just managed to dupe 10’s of millions of people.
“So far, there’s never been an official public disclosure.”
That is completely unacceptable. Unless you are a deep cover CIA agent we need to know the name and title and salary of every single person on the public payroll.
I do like that Geico ad with Mary asking Abe about her hoop skirt “does this make me look fat”? LOL! It’s so good how they do the old movie look, it makes you think there must be films of them around, which of course, there aren’t.
As Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin turned down a mandated pay raise.
Meanwhile, these grifters are spending tax-dollars faster than they can print it.
FUBO and that fat-ass wife of yours.
Really? Mary Lincoln? Really?
I think I understand this.
If you start your own company, WORK HARD and EARN millions of dollars (which you then use to pay employees) you are “rich and greedy.”
But if you stick your grubby mitts into the public till and take $10 mill of other people’s money, to spend on yourself, that is NOT greedy.
