Skip to comments.What Shared Sacrifice? Obamas Fly 'His & Her' Jets to Lux Vineyard Vacay
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.
pardon me for repeating myself... Martha’s Vineyard
...seems like it would be a lot better a hangout than, say, Camp David, if terrorists were to start suitcase-nuking the eastern seaboard.
It’s good to be the King.
Last year they send Bo on his own plane to Martha's Vineyard.
They are nothing but grifters in the same vein as the Clintons, only worse . . . altho I think flying the large bottomed Mooch-elle separately was a wise idea . . . altho I’d’ve made her walk . . . just to get rid of some of that lard.
I can’t wait to hear the MSM trumpet
Obamas endure penny pinching vacation
Dog forced to travel on plane with Baraq
She probably gained weight like her chubby little daughters did..so is keeping out of sight..All that salad they eat made them to over weight..
Reggie Love...you can’t make this stuff up!
MO jets to a luxury vacation spot in privileged fashion but going to Dover AFB to pay respects to the families of our heros is apparently an incovenience for her.
Very good post it made me laugh although it is more than likely true..
Please do. As was noted on the thread, the MSM is busy covering for Obama today.
The Obama’s hubris is actually a very good thing.
It’s going to inspire the opposition in 2012.
Wake up America, mac, the crybaby liar, daddy could care less about America, The Economy, The voters, wih an IQ above 10, or Free Wrld Leaders It’s all about HIM, FIRST, LAST AND ALWAYS HIM.
Because they can.
I don’t think it was made up it happened last year according to the article..I was just looking to see if they gave Bo his own plane this year..
MOOOOOOchele needed the extra room for food to tide her over during the trip.
No I was referring to 0bama’s personal assistant Reggie Love...
But if this is vanity or some other reason, I am ticked.
They busted the "BIG 3's" chops when they flew to Washington to beg for funds, yet the Dominant Media says nothing about this HYPOCRACY.
What was good for GM, then Chrysler, and Ford is good enough for the Obama's IMHO...
Another way it will frost you is that it won't be on the lips of any Republicans, either. How many times did we see the RATS run to the nearest microphone to denounce W for taking a vacation or rip into a Republican for playing a round of golf or enjoying a meal somwhere, but never do we see Republicans return the favor. Never!
Here we have the economy unraveling in the wake of The Deal That Must Be Made!™ and this clymer Obama goes off to place that charges more for a week's stay than the average schmoe makes in a year while the Stupid Party—the entire Stupid Party—stands completely mute. That frost me big time!
As my daughter would say... "Seriously?"
I thought it was pretty common knowledge that their marriage was on the rocks? Dude, she left him with the dog. No clearer signal than that. Bill feels his pain. Next picture is going to be everybody cruising the waterways on the party boat with OB sportin' his own little slick willie.
Michelle and the girls never travel alone..a minimum of 20 paid staff are usually with them plus their friends and relations.
Did Barry get his wedding ring back yet? I heard both his watch and his ring "are out for repairs". They disappeared right around the time Ramadam began..
One can only hope it does..but how many of them really think this beast is arrogant and out of touch or will even say so..
It's better she doesn't go.
Which tells me the reason they are traveling separately is because Michele doesn't want to travel with Barack.
Maybe there is some truth to rumors that they are 'not getting along'.
Reggie Love. The original teabagger...
Nope. I noticed too. A secret trip to see her brother in OR leaked out, and of course she and the family were nowhere near the bus tour.
Then Barry flew alone with Bo on the same day that Shelly and the girls flew in from DC as well?
Sounds like their ‘arrangement’ may be a little strained.
Well she left him with the dog and Reggie Love.
Between mac daddies ego and moooooclele food to tide her over during the trip one airplane did not have enough room.
Is this a Jerry Lewis movie?
