This is a group on FB dedicated to getting America back. They posted this earlier. A nice recap for reference. I wish they had included costs to taxpayers though.

FIRST LADY OF LUXURY TRAVEL: THE COSTLY TRIPS
SPAIN: AUGUST 2010

Michelle Obama and 40 of her friends paid for personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.
But the U.S. taxpayer would have paid for the 68-strong security detail, personal staff and use of presidential jet Air Force Two.
Payment for the secret service team ran at around $281 each - nearly $98,000 for the duration of the summer break.
Use of Air Force Two comes in at $149,900 for the round trip, not including time on the ground.
Mrs Obama’s personal staff, of which there were an unknown number, should also be taken into account
HAWAII: DECEMBER 2010

According to the Hawaii Reporter the costs were:

$63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President
$1,000,000 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One
$16,000 to rent nearby homes for Secret Service and Navy Seals
$134,000 for 24 White House staff to stay at the Moana Hotel
$251,000 in police overtime
$10,000 for an ambulance to be on hand at all times
SKI TRIP TO VAIL: FEBRUARY 2011

Michelle Obama and her daughters stayed at the Sebastian hotel on Vail Mountain, where rooms cost more than $2,400 for multi-bedroom suites.
The family appear to have flown there on Air Force Two.
They were escorted to the resort by about a dozen vehicles, including 15 state and local law enforcement officers.
MARTHA’S VINEYARD: AUGUST 2011

The Blue Heron Farm estate, where the Obama family stayed, rents for about $50,000 a week.
Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama flew to the estate just hours before the president to make the most of the holiday - again, incurring extra flight costs.
According to U.S. News and World Report, the Coast Guard was required to keep ships floating near the property. The presidential helicopter and jet remain at the ready and security agents will be on 24-hour duty.
HAWAII: DECEMBER 2011

According to the Hawaii Reporter the costs were:

$63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President but add security and personnel for a total of about $100,000
$3,271,622 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One
$151,200 to rent nearby homes for Secret Service and Navy Seals
$72,216 for 24 White House staff to stay at the Moana Hotel

Typically the First Lady will have a total staff of 2 or 3.

MoochElle has a staff of ***OVER 25 PEOPLE*** —the most in US history.

The reason for the lavish trip to Spain —do you know they thought we were so stupid that at first they actually said, “It’s to show the daughter THE RAIN IN SPAIN...”

They actually SAID that..! They later changed it to something less ridiculous.

It’s pretty remarkable that they didn’t take any trips from Inauguration until August 2009. I wonder if it just took them that long to figure out how to game the system?

“...Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his 49th birthday bash.”

I bet some of his bathhouse pals were there to help him bash.

Let’s see - I had one vacation back in 2009. A 2 week road trip in the Colorado Rockies.

Can I be President for a year so I can have a half-dozen vacations too?

Does anyone have the data close at hand to compare this travesty with the Bushs’ vacation schedule for the same period of time? Could be interesting!

“Michelle Obama and 40 of her friends paid for personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.”

I’m sure that’s their story; I’m sure they’re sticking to it. I’m also sure it’s total B.S. No way did they pay a penny of their own expenses.

– August 2010, Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his 49th birthday bash.

I think this would be more correctly stated "Obama spent the weekend away from his wife in Chicago for his 49th birthday bash."

I doubt he was alone.

Bear in mind that the expenses I clipped are only travel. There are no mentions of things like her $2,200 sun dress for the Hawaii stroll on the beach or the $700.00 sneakers she wore to the fed the homeless at the soup kitchen.

This woman is intoxicated with the open taxpayer check book at her disposal and is burning through money in ways no one could imagine. To even wonder about it makes one a racist.

Black democrat politicians are entitled to be corrupt in office and enrich themselves because of the legacy of slavery. And as you said, to question this is to be a “racist”.

They have been living like royalty since the very beginning when they flew in a private pizza chef from St Louis to make their dinner.

“She is a pig and trash; her and her wannabe tinhorn dictator husband.”

She’s a disgusting, vile, harpy who had the nerve to say that she’d never been proud of America until her Muslim traitor of a husband got elected. Does she even realize that withouth America’s Affirmative Action efforts she and Hussein never would’ve graduated high school? Neither could pass an SAT in a fair testing environment.
