First Lady Michelle Obama in surprise private visit to London with daughters By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 4:24 PM on 08th June 2009
American First Lady Michelle Obama is spending the day in London on a private visit with daughters Sasha and Malia.
Mrs Obama stayed on in Paris for sightseeing yesterday after President Barack Obama returned to the US at the end of his trip to Europe.
She is understood to have flown into the UK with their daughters Malia and Sasha early today.

Let them eat cake!
She should treat her daughter’s and herself to a nice slice of head cheese at Harrods.
Zero really is as stupid as he appears.
Waste that money, Obamaloon family.
May your future lie in Kenya.
Damn, she REALLY DOES think she’s royalty... just jetsetting around Europe on our dime. Even if she’s paying for her own meals and tourist trinkets, WE’RE paying for Secret Service protection and other expenses related to the trips.
There is less and less pretense that she thinks anything other than she’s due.
That proves that obama is smarter than a conservative. When we are low on money, we cut back on spending (both big ticket and small items). He knows how to show his wife a good time, despite his $1.6T deficit, without any financial worries at all.
These jokers are going to make the Clinton’s excesses seem like spare change.
Just imagine if Laura Bush and the twins did this during a recession... we'd be hearing about it for the rest of our lives.
Marie Antoinette, touring the sights of Paris one last time.
I’m starting to wonder if she thinks she is America’s Black Princess Di.
I was surprised that he left them in Europe when it was one daughter’s birthday.

Muzzies don’t celebrate birthdays.
It’s nice to see the Obama ladies jet setting around like rock stars on our dime...I mean, they deserve it right? </sarc></vomit>
That’s not true!
How many planes do they take on these trips ?
that was going to be my question....i just love the way these fools are living it up on the taxpayers while we struggle day to day to make ends meet and worry if we will have a job tomorrow....
I could have sworn I read where they do not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Well, thanks for the correction. I may be thinking of Jehova’s. :)
Well....he did have to play golf yesterday.
Why should we be suprised, though? Every spring break Hillary and Chelesea would hit the road on a global tour. And liberals all just smile and say, “Oh, what’s the big deal. They work sooooo hard. They deserve some time off.”
Any bets as to how long it’ll take for Obama to reveal that he promised Mama Obama a trip to a tropical island for a couple of weeks during the campaign? And, of course, he HAS to keep his promises to her, while breaking every promise he made to the people he works for ...
Malia O’s birthday is July 4. She will be 11. The other daughters birthday is in August.
In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.
The Obama's celebrate the days (apparently) but do not give gifts. The question then is: Do Muslims give birthday presents?
I don't know the answer.
HBO currently has a movie based upon Churchill in WW2, see it if you can, it’s well done. IIRC it’s called “Into the Storm” or something like that.
This is really remarkable behavior. Let them eat cake indeed. Next will be a little junket down to New Orleans followed by a run over to Disney land for the kids.
I haven't seen it yet, but it will be hard to top "The Gathering Storm." Albert Finney WAS Churchill.
Last night I watched an episode of MI-5 on PBS. It was called Presidential Visit and it was about a brief visit Bush made to London in ‘03. It provided a peek into all the security that had to be put in place for the visit by MI-5 and the CIA including keeping tabs on any known people threats that may be in the area. I wonder how much warning the real MI-5 had to provide security which is described as “tight” in the article for this “surprise” visit. It must have driven them all crazy, but I hop Malia and Sasha had fun!
We have a Muslim woman temporarily living in the house we’re trying to sell. She always brings us things for holidays. She insisted on coming over late the night she remembered it was my birthday to bring me a gift. It’s possible that different Muslim countries celebrate differently. She even came over for Christmas dinner.
Thank you. That’s interesting. They announced the birthday on our local news as the reason Michelle and the girls stayed in France.
Might as well just see the world while the rest of the US suffers.
Wow. We hope we can afford our annual adoption agency picnic - 3 days at the Holiday Inn, gas for the 10 yr old Suburban for 260 miles, and food.
This will be our vacation for the year.
Yep, that's right... thanks for that reminder.

Meanwhile the majority of WOMEN voters - including Oprah - in this country who voted for Obama are swooning, every time he says he's "keeping a promise to his wife..." I'm a woman... believe me, I know how these dingbats think!
Funny how "the country went to hell" while Bush 41, 43 and Ronald Reagan took vacations on their ranches, in Kennebunkport, Maine or on the golf course, though...
Where is Granny? She was on the sightseeing trip.
But it was also revealed somewhere by MO that Santa gives the Christmas gifts not the parents although I find it a little beyond believing that a smart 10-year-old almost 11 girl like Malia hasn’t figured that one out yet. As for birthdays they give big birthday parties and the friends get to supply the gifts. I wonder what this year’s July 4th party will be like at the WH.
He said he couldn’t hang around Paris because he was “busy”, so he flew back to DC and played some golf...
I will check it out ....thanks!
I’d be surprised if they pay for ANYTHING out of their own pocket..
Don't expect a thank-you-card for the European birthday trip you paid for.
Don’t these kids have school?
It’s summer vacation.
"Not that he is expecting it to be entirely relaxing. On Saturday night, Obama will face a challenge familiar to many American parents: Eight 7-year-olds are due at his house for a birthday sleepover in honor of his daughter, Sasha."
Here's the link to the full article:
Article on Huffington Post link, but is actually a USA Today article.
So it looks like her birthday is in early June, but for some reason, there are questions about the actual date.
I have no doubt that what you say is true.
Don’t you understand, HE HAD A GOLF DATE, gees get your priorities in order, I mean gee what is more important soldiers or golf. He’s a busy empty suit and needs time off to unwind.
After all he is under a lot of pressure, I mean he made a complete as* of himself on his trip.
Even the raghead don’t respect this empty suit. They already know what a lying, arrogant back stabbing weak figurehead TOTUS he is.
The only country in the world who are cvlueless, for the most part, is the U.S.A. .
That picture shows who Michelle truly is.
