Thank you for posting this. The MSM would never bring this up to remind people of what kind of man we have for a president.

Why did Nero fiddle while Rome burned?
Because golf hadn’t been invented yet.Or airplanes.

Don’t those kids ever go to school? Obviously not since they are always jetting here, there and everywhere. (On our dime, of course.)

We have our own disaster......and we're trying to make him someone else's problem so we can enjoy Spring Break in peace. Sorry Rio, everyone eventually has to take one for the team.

"Major address"? They're still trying that nonsense?

Another vaca???? Didn’t Michelle just get back from a sky trip a couple of weeks ago? Unfreaking believable. How many vacations does this make this year?

This was last years. I tried to add to the title that it was a year ago this week.

I don't know if they have planned a trip for this spring break. If they had any sense of propriety they would not. However, the only thing likely stopping them is the 2012 campaign and advisers warning that it wouldn't be good. Maybe George Soros called Obama up and banned him from vacationing the remainder of the year? We will see.

I don’t know, the Obama’s seem to be tone deaf when it comes to
the majority of American people. I think they would jet off in a heartbeat if they could, never thinking twice about it, unless someone else is telling them to stay put.

It’s OK...
They are DEMOCRATS, therefore more equal than you.

It was a year ago. I wanted to know why it is an issue again today.

More likely timed around his tranny nurse maid's blabbing his/her/its mouth.

"I’d like to see a COST TO TAXPAYERS list of ALL their excursions."

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the Obama's have squandered more than a billion dollars of taxpayer money on themselves financing their vacations, household expenses, clothing, private school for the kids, parties, and sightseeing trips to various places under the guise of being "diplomatically" necessary trips. Then consider what the various cabinet officers are spending on themselves.

Our money is ALWAYS an issue... we are in debt for over 400 years into our future. Check the math.
