They make it seem like ONLY THOSE THREE are going to Hawaii.

Doesn’t she travel with quite the entourage?

Is he ‘interviewing’ for another ‘body man’ while Wook’s away?

Bingo....! Question is, now that Reggie Love is gone, who’s the next presidential gay lover?

I heard Sam Hurd, but also understand he just got arrested on charges of massive quantities of cocaine and marijuana. Although a little crime like that would not stop barack obama. That’s peanuts to him.

Why doesn’t the whole family stay in DC and leave on the same plane instead of costing the taxpayers more money because of their selfishness?

After the kerfuffle following their last vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, over the expense of taking two different planes, four hours apart, one would think there would be a political price to pay here. They are truly arrogant and impervious to criticism. They’re in love with the trappings of the presidency more than anything, it is apparent.

Woe be unto him if Bush had ever done this, even once.

Is it just me, or does it seem they don’t like traveling together? There was Michelle’s trip to Spain also.

Hmmm......

True or not (but I think it's true ... ), in less than one term the fag hag has a "secret" boyfriend and zero does the down low with ... whomever.

(He is a whore, after all.)

Can you imagine his relief in knowing when he goes upstairs at night, Michelle will not be there? Maybe one of his “boyfriends” will be spending the night?

I think I read yesterday that they were sending a naval task force to Hawaii to help protect the Wookie.

But the really big question is, where’s Bo? Or did he leave with Reggie?

What the heck, It isn’t his money he is spending.

Say, if he isn’t using Camp David for Christmas, how about loaning it to me.My family would like a nice Christmas vacation and I would gladly supply my own transportation, my own food and fix some cookies and cake for the guards there.Maybe even some Egg Nog.

She has to be the "Big Cheese" on every flight.
Or in this case, "The Big Kahuna".

The strain of being first-lady nice to all those white people all the time is killer.

Now add in the exhaustion of her 122-member staff ordering all those school kids to do jumpin’ jacks and showing up at one photo op so she could get a Guinness world records

Bring on the lobsta and mai-tai’s, mama need to par-tay.

(notice how moochelle disappears when she is in Hawaii...no trips to the aquarium or shave ice for the kids until Barky hops down the steps of AF One)

God forbid they should deprive themselves for the good of the country and go to Camp David for Christmas. Most of us would kill to go to a great place like Camp David for 17 days. Or for that matter spend the holidays in the White House with 30 Christmas trees and a whole staff of chefs cooking up yummy food and a great wine cellar and all that homemade beer and a movie theatre, pool and bowling alley and putting green.

It’s a lot worse than being love with the trappings of power. It’s intentionally showing absolute, deliberate contempt for the entire American people. If she wanted to go early and show real respect, she’d have taken adequate security and flown first class in her own dime. By forcing millions of her fellow citizens to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a private joy ride on a government owned 757, she deliberately rubs every American’s face in the pile of communist shit and the Illegal have created, demonstrating their absolute ability to violate, with impunity, the most minimal, reasonable standards of legitimacy and propriety

Hey she knows the taxpayer funded boondoggles end in less than a year, so she’s going to make the most of the time she has left.

Watch for a big spike in “goodwill trips” to exotic destinations next year.

The military jet flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

All of you peons need to stop complaining about those “above” you (your betters). Shut your pie holes, get to work (if you are fortunate to have a job) and pay your taxes. Move along...there is nothing to see here, Citizen.

With nobama’s boy toy Reggie about to depart, “they” needed a week or ten days to say goodbye at the Whiteyhut without a wookie and the girls getting in the way. Anyway the indo-kenyan will be having another vacation coming in February in Hawaii.
