Expensive massages, top shelf vodka and five-star hotels: First Lady accused of spending $10m in
Daily Mail ^ | 8/24/11 | Tamara Abraham

Posted on 08/24/2011 9:28:26 AM PDT by Nachum

The Obamas' summer break in Martha's Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets. But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances. White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers' money on vacations alone in the past year. Branding her 'disgusting' and 'a vacation junkie', they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol. The 'top source' told the National Enquirer: 'It's disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage

I thought Drudge broke the Lewinsky story?
(After being informed Newsweak was going to bury it.)

The National Enquirer also broke the Rush Limbaugh addiction story.

The taxpayers already provide a vacation retreat for the president. It’s called Camp David.

Never saw the point in vodka martinis. How can a drink be made from either gin or vodka and go by the very same name? That’s something else I don’t understand.

As for Michelle, she’s just getting by. When you live with a Malignant Narcissist, he takes it all out of you. She probably needs all that tax-payer funded largesse to make up for what she *really* needs, and which Obama is not giving her. MN’s are withholders, and I would bet my house on what Obama is withholding. This is not to justify Michelle’s unconscionable, over-the-top spending. It’s just to explain it.

Neither did John Edwards. But he learned quickly.

Exactly. The National Enquirer is NOT the tabloid it used to be. I’ll never understand why don’t “re-brand,” change names.

Remember The National Enquirer broke the Lewinsky story and the Edwards baby/daddy story.

"Michelle Obama - cracking under the pressure of being First Lady - is drinking way more than she should, friends fear."

"friends " fear.

Liberals don't have friends.

They HATE for the sake of hate.

Their vision is shared melancholia.

I read that the Obamas are picking up the tab for the rent ($50,000 per week) but the taxpayers are footing the bill for everything else — Secret Service, transportation, etc. When Michelle insists on separate planes in order to arrive 4 hours early, that is simply outrageous.

You're right. They also did a huge story on the Monica/Bill situation.

There's another thread running a story in the Globe about HIS drinking, and that one I don't put as much stock in. If it had been in the N.E. it would have held more sway for me.

Personally, I believe that this obscene behavior is intentional. Michelle knows that hubby is a one-termer, and she is getting while the getting is good.

Besides, she is partying on honky’s dollars, so that makes it even sweeter. There’s a lot of catching up to do - payback for slavery, in her mind, you know.

So she will be IN YOUR FACE with her vacationing, and if you don’t like it, then SHOVE IT!

Yeah, I agree with the other posters that if they want to vacation, they should go to Camp David. If they want to go anywhere else, they need to pay for it themselves.

***Exactly. The National Enquirer is NOT the tabloid it used to be. ***

True! Back in the 1950s it was a blood and guts tabloid with articles like...”I CUT OUT HER HEART AND ATE IT!”

It changed somewhere in the mid 1960s, to a gossip tabloid.

My favorite factoid being the black 1867 Louisiana Reconstruction Legislature. It spent about $267,000 on Christmas hams for its membership. If this recent report is true then nothing has changed but the names of the people involved.

If they were once slaves, then I don't really begrudge them some Christmas hams. It's the entitlement mentality that I object to, where descendants that were never slaves themselves think that they are entitled to compensation for what their ancestors went through.

And as an example of that, I’d highlight the Department of Agriculture’s settlement with black farmers, where any black person who claimed that they had “attempted to farm”, but couldn’t, because of discrimination, is entitled to $50,000 in compensation from taxpayers. Lawyers get a cut of these cases so they have an incentive to sign up as many people as possible, and many of these “farmers” have never even been on a farm.
