Posted on 08/19/2011 6:55:27 AM PDT by kristinn
The jet-setting Obamas arrived at their $50,000 per week Martha's Vineyard vacation destination yesterday on separate taxpayer provided jets.
The extravagant travel choice flies in the face of Barack Obama's war on private jet owners and his call for "shared sacrifice" to ease the exploding federal budget deficit.
Michelle Obama and the two Obama daughters took what appears to be a Gulfstream jet while the president and family dog Bo flew Air Force One to a nearby airfield and were then taken by helicopter to Martha's Vineyard, according to an account by the Martha's Vineyard Gazette and other reports. No reason was given for the Obamas traveling on separate jets.
Probably a weight limit issue
Am I the only one who’s noticed that Michelle has really dropped off the radar the last few months compared to her earlier media exposure...wonder what’s up with that?
“Probably a weight limit issue”
If that were the case, she should have been flying on a C-17.....
Them theighs bees chunky........
All that rich food served on the 'listening tour' bus?
I forget, is this His or Hers?.......................
It’s good to be King (and Queen).
ABC News is busy covering the president’s ass this morning - just led the 7am news with a list of advisors who have been summoned to Marther’s Vineyard for Obama’s ‘working vacation’.
Now that Nancy’s not using them, there’s plenty extras to use.................
Election time approacheth and, with approval ratings way down, they have to bury the fervently Communist anti-American bitch as best they can for the next 15 months.
She also took time off to go to Oregon while the debt ceiling situation was going on - which you’d think would have been a stand-by-your-man moment.
On a lighter note did you see the story that Bill Clinton’s says that he’s a “vegan?”
Obviously, this profligate duo doesn’t care how awful it looks to be spending millions of tax dollars so they can vacation luxuriously and hobnob with those “millionaires and billionaires” that BO claims to hate so much.
The plan must be to take much of that billion dollars he’s raising for his campaign and use that as their personal “golden parachute” after he loses the election. They’ll be able to buy their own mansion in some tax haven and live happily ever after, while our children and grandchildren struggle to survive under the crushing debt this traitor left behind.
Thanks Kristinn. I’m reposting this news in several places as it probably won’t be on the alphabet news. This really frosts me.
The only problem with all of zero’s vacations is that he keeps coming back.
The wookie fag hag has the girls (of questionable parentage IMO ... any birth announcements in any papers at any time? .. I've never seen them)
The boy's plane and the girl's plane.
The paranoia of that 'family' has GOT to be off the charts.
