Thanks taxpayers! Globetrotting Michelle Obama announces luxurious vacation to China
The Daily Caller ^ | 4 Mar 2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 03/04/2014 9:37:40 AM PST by mandaladon

Fresh off the first family’s sixth annual winter vacation to the Hawaiian island of Oahu – billed to American taxpayers at a cost of $4 million – Michelle Obama and the first daughters Malia and Sasha will now jet off to China for over a week of much-needed sightseeing.

President Barack Obama won’t be making the trip.

But don’t worry, America: The first lady’s mother, Marian Robinson, will be tagging along on the federal dime.

The theme of the March 19-26 trip will be education, reports the Chicago Tribune. The first lady and her entourage will spend several days in Beijing before venturing to the cities of Xian and Chengdu.

Naturally, the Obama family and its accompanying retinue will take in several cultural and historical sites. They will also stop by high schools in both Beijing and Chengdu.

The first lady will meet with Peng Liyuan, the second and current wife of Xi Jinping, the president of China and the general secretary of the country’s Communist Party.

Liyuan is also an allegedly popular folk singer in China. Here she is, according to YouTube, singing “To See Liberation for All Oppressed People.”

As the Daily Mail observes, the Obamas have spent a tremendous amount of taxpayer money globetrotting in luxury all over the world.

For example, Judicial Watch discovered that the couple racked up an $11 million tab on travel to South Africa to attend Nelson Mandela’s funeral in December 2013.

Amazingly, the presidential pair was on the ground for fewer than 13 hours...........................It's good to be king!

In June, notes the Mail, Michelle Obama felt compelled to go to Ireland for two days. She stayed at a $3,300-per-night hotel in Dublin. The total cost of her taxpayer-funded trip was $5 million.......................It's good to be Queen.

One thing she/it can’t do in China. Shop for clothes or shoes. They don’t have freak sizes.

singing “To See Liberation for All Oppressed People.”

How ironic is it that she is the oppressor of the most populous nation on earth?

I speculate that Moochelle and mother are house hunting. After they get through destroying this country, I don’t think their mansion in Hawaii will offer them enough protection when TSHF.

Very bad timing as Red China is supporting Putin/Russia on the Ukraine intervention and on hands off Assad in Syria.

Moochie likes taxpayer paid vacations, but should not go to China at this time.

Even though they ‘supposedly” pay out of their own pocket the price of first class tickets for the daughters and the MIL plus supposedly they pay for part of the hotel suite

we the taxpayer still pick up most of the travel and ALL of the security plus travel expenses of whomever off her staff she takes.
I hope some org files a FOIA to make the obamos prov they did pay for part of it

These fakes liars and moochers will be doing this for another 2 years

Good example of how idiotic people sound when they suggest the press and the dems are getting tired of these impostors. Free pass, free pass, free pass. How they are adored by their subjects is almost tribal...

It's interesting to compare this against President George W. Bush and his wife usually vacationing at his home in Crawford, TX--you know, the place that the MSM hated because it was almost literally in the middle of nowhere.

All these trips will be converted into propaganda telling what world leader experience she has, and foreign policy experience. Everything fascists do is calculated.
Remember Mrs. Clinton’s “duck to avoid the small arms fire” in Bosnia?

Thanks taxpayers! Globetrotting Michelle Obama announces luxurious vacation to China

This is completely wrong and I don't buy it for a second!

WHEN HAS EITHER OF THEM EVER SAID THANK YOU TO US?!

Why? Why is she going? She, and a group costing a lot of money, are going to China. For what? She is spending millions of dollars of taxpayer’s money. For what? What will the United States get out of her trip? This is disgusting. Watching her travel the world just because she is the President’s wife bothers me. Doesn’t it you?
