Wow. This stuff just never ends. Apparently the people in Washington have absolutely NO conscience left at all. If this were a Republican administration doing this kind of irresponsible misspending of money, the media would have stirred the leftist, low-information voters into rioting by this time.

I guess Michelle was probably overhead to say, "Let them eat cake!" (Even though Marie didn't actually say that).

I know she went to Mexico last year.

You might recall that initial stories about it were ‘scrubbed’ from the internet in a few hours.

Apparently the NY Times has no problem publishing secrets about our surveillance programs...but a story about Malia’s travels is a bridge too far for them.

It’s bad enough that the Obama females are vacationing on our dime, but once again, they’ve brought a bunch of freeloading friends along with them.

As somebody said before, this is all done on purpose, as an "in your face!" to those of us with European bloodlines.

How did they fly there when air traffic controllers have been all laid off?? Oh. Yeah. Right. They have Air Force one.

My two older boys would love to have a quick Bahamas vacation! I’ll just make the secret service take them there! Oh. Wait. We don’t have secret service protection. Never mind.

He makes $400,000 per year. There is no way he is paying for it, regardless of the entourage.

He might if it were the only vacation his family had taken this year or the past few, but no way. It’s about $800 per night per person just for the hotel.

The American public does not elect the pres and pay his salary in order to send his daughters, excuse me, the princesses, to resorts. It’s just not part of the job description that it is in any way necessary.

We need to have this info ready, as we are the new media. If we’re quiet about it, then we consent. If we’re quiet because we don’t know, then we’re going to have to make it our business to know.

$400 g. Less than the average stockbroker living on LI who certainly does not send his daughters alone to the Bahamas in order to sit around drinking soda and eating French fries. NO

I've got mixed feelings about this article.

It certainly doesn't look good in a period of austerity.

I'm not a big fan of kids that age traveling off without their parents. Parents and children have a limited time together before adulthood, but that's the parents' business, not mine.

On the other hand, I'm uncomfortable about making kids into a political issue.

And most all politicians, especially presidents, live like a privileged class, not just Obama.

Good. They’ll be going on tours to museums and boring stuff that they’ll be very grateful for as an educational experience and bonding time with the elders. Excellent.

They wont’ be sitting around drinking cokes and swimming. It’s not even time well spent. It’s idle time.

I did not hear that the White House canceled the Easter egg roll. This is so in your face. Wouldn’t it have helped an American spring break destination if the Obama kids had vacationed there? The Obamas hate America and are probably planning to continue hating it on their lifetime pension of our money, sick.

Oh, I don’t think they’ll be bored. They like art and music, historic sites, shopping (even without buying ;-), going to restaurants and parks, and so on. I’d like to go, too, but I have a nursing baby. My last vacation without the Complete Horde was in 2003. (Mom took me to Amsterdam to celebrate her 65th birthday.)

These kids a very political issue when they are spending my child’s money to sit around pretending they’re princesses.

BO does Absolutely Not have the income for this. He is stealing that money.

The entourage must be paid as well

We have to, as his employers, make it our business to know that this man makes $400 K per year and does not have the money for this.

It is not from the little cutbacks in the selfish generations’ medicare that this funding is coming.

It is from the debt that our children are going to have to pay off. And they will not NOT be calling us wimps the greatest generation.

We will be known as the generation who allowed this to happen by pretending that he is king because the media wouldn’t let us speak the truth.

“Rumor confirmed: friends saw the first daughters with a gaggle of friends being escorted to the held elevator.”

Don't you feel better knowing your tax money was spent on sending a "gaggle of friends" of Malaria and Sasquatch Jr. to the Bahamas instead of seeing it wasted on college aid for Marines and soldiers or conducting tours through the White House?

Me neither.

Yes, it’s an African cultural thing,
and the emphasis is on the cultural aspect.

There are those, of course, mostly on the left, but I’ve seen it around here as well, that cry “racist!” whenever you criticize “black things”.

It’s not racist to point out cultural depravities and deficiencies, as this political graft and corruption clearly is.
It would be “racist” to assert that this depravity is caused by genetics.

Last week was guns soda, cigs on display, turd poking queer perverted marriage yet again.\\

Exactly why doe shte GOP not call a pres conference every day like the Dems did when Bush did anything and demand the media do their F-IN jobs.

Are people going to rise up and stand up, tell their neighbors or is it a case or “well what shall we eat tonight and where she all we go?

So right!

I thought of that back in the days of Sandra Fluke's rise to fame, when the argument of the day was Free Birth Control, and polls showed that the younger voters supported it overwhelmingly.

I was waiting for some republican to have the guts to point out to the brainwashed youthful Obama supporters that those "Free" condoms and birth control pills would probably end up costing them and their kids about $10,000 each and they would be paying for them over the next 50 years.

I do think it’s time to stop referring to it as taxpayer money.

We are 7 trillion in debt. We’re only paying the interest on that.

If we were to stop ALL spending, it would take way into our children’s adulthood and their money to pay that off.

As it is, our debt is climbing. We are not paying for these girls to party at about tens of thou $ per day.

Our children are paying for that. And, trust me, they are already pissed off that they are paying 25% of their check for soc sec they’ll never see.

Our children will not be pissed at Obama they’ll be pissed at those (us) who let this happen. Our jokes and whining will not amuse them at all.

“...uncomfortable about making kids into a political issues...”

It is a de facto political issue because it involves taxpayer dollars - in other words, its not about the daughters per se, it’s about the actions that are now tax payer funded. The whole trip becomes political by its nature, not because of the personalities involved.

The current annual cost of the White House — just in household expenses, not the policy operations for which it exists — is $1.4 billion: Annually, presidential vacations cost $20 million (the low estimate for one presidential vacation to Hawaii is $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first family’s yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transporting the president cost $346 million last year.
