I guess Michelle was probably overhead to say, "Let them eat cake!" (Even though Marie didn't actually say that).
I don’t remember GWB and his daughters taking these constant vacations...
good lord zero is just taking us for every little darn thing he can...we are his piggy bank..
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.
As somebody said before, this is all done on purpose, as an "in your face!" to those of us with European bloodlines.
A few years ago we stayed at the towers in a small room and were told that those in the bridge suite paid a minimum of 250K for 4 day weekends, IIRC.
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.
(And chag sameach - Happy Passover!)
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
Mexico was last year.
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.
Whats wrong with Disney World?
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.
My grandkids, 14 & 18, are going to the Y for their vacation.
Did they bring food tasters with them, or does Bo the dog serve the purpose?
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.
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?
No, they won’t be bored.
Not just you. She does have the same look as the Mooch.
Yep. That's their story, and they've been sticking to it--even though if his daddy was really a Kenyan, the only connection they might have had with slavery here was selling a few.
On the taxpayers’ dime, too. It’s about time we sequestered the Obama family’s vacation funds.
It’s not our tax money. That’s been spent way into the future. It’s our childrens’ tax money and they don’t know it yet. They’re being taken advantage of by these people and by every one of us wimps for putting up with this and not stopping it
Who of you with daughters their daughters ages hold hands with them? Mine wouldn’t be caught dead holding hands with their father at those ages. Why do first families always do this hand holding with the children when they are well beyond the hand holding age—I know. It’s all about the great family image —gag.
unless you’re a minor peon like JJ Jr. Then you go to the Big House.
It’s not our money, that’s long gone.
We are now way into our childrens’ money and their childrens’ money. We placed our hope to stop this on a wimp laden GOP but that’s all over now.
But our children will have been done in by our giving over of our country to this.
A correction was required to be more direct and to the point; he's just paying homage to his African roots and the graft/corruption that other African dictators practice on a daily basis.
FUBO, FAD and down with the democrat party
“I dont remember GWB and his daughters taking these constant vacations...”
Well, you sure as s would if they had done so.
It’s not our money they’re taking. It’s our descendants’ money.
Ours has been taken already. We know this.
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.
at taxpayer expense no less
tell me ths is a joke.
our house is closed of what we pay for and yet this fmaly go overseas on yet another vacation .
They are thinking that they;re royality and that a handful of elitists like this family and others tell us we are not allowed in our house, we pay for, we are to be told what marriage is, we are told you do not have religious freedom , thta is for this week.
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?
That as America gets destroyed.
this is outrageous, a handful of elitist tell us what marriage will be cue the lawsuits.
Then our house is losed to us what we pay for but they take our money and go away and we still get some evenon here saying how they stayed there and it was nice but never stating how outrageous this is.
I swear the right , the left, so called conservatives what the hell are people going to wake the hell up and understand that the ocuntry is not about them or so long as they are alright then so be it .
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.
sarge just tokld a friend over the phone this and this is what theysaid.
oh really, that;s a nice place, must be nice ot be them , anyway what are you doing, we;re going to stay home but take day trps and have some nice meals at restaurants.
I swear I fell liek I;m living in a handful of folks world where only a few of us actually care about this country today.
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.
They think Obama will get THEM all this lifestyle. ha.
THE ony Commies in Russia who have a great lifestyle are the “Politburo”.
We are about $7 trillion dollars more in debt since Obama took office. Total debt is about $16.5 trillion dollars.
no worries, the media has their back, the judges will tell us what marriage is and her family can still rape us for money and lets not forget our hosue is cloased because the real reason is that the obama’s now think of that house as their house
GOP YOU BUNCH OF LAZY COWARDS, GET ON AIR AND DEMAND THAT THIS CRAP STOP EVERY HOUR IF NEED BE
“...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.
There are A LOT of kids who are not going for this at all. They take OVER the March for Life yearly in Jan in DC in the middle of the winter it grows every year 400,000 people this year, average age 20 something.
Fox faux news will NOT report this.
Look at what happened in Paris yesterday. Only available on the French news.
Hundreds of thou mostly young adults against gay marriage.
Young people are not stupid. They’re just young (and neglected)
Sigh. You’re correct.
I stay at Alex Dimitrios’ beach house...
Gabby Johnson is right!
We should be outraged!
No idea about historical villians, no literature education.
They’re already under the bus, they just don’t know it.
Wait til they pay tax penalty for not buying health insurance and their med care consists of waiting several hours to see a quack or a butcher.
