I find it fascinating that looking back as far as Harry Truman, I only see 3 presidents at did not run like hell back to their pre-presidential homes for vacation.
Ford liked the free trips to Vail and other vacation hot spots.
Clinton liked to go any place as long as it was high dollar and had lots and lots of the upper crust to hang with.
BronchoBammer acts like Clinton squared. Or Maybe cubed. The others seemed very happy with who and what they were, these three acted and act more like social climbers on the people’s dime.
Try to keep up. Shasta and Malaria are in Aspen now, trying to wind down from their Mexico vacation.
“How much is this spring beak costing us?”
Don’t worry about it your grandkids will be paying for it.
Malibu home of Ivory Coast dictator's son.
The oil-rich Ivory Coast has one of the worst human rights records in Africa and whose rulers are accused of funneling millions of dollars into their own pockets. But now it looks like the son of the dictator----Teodoro---whose worldcomprised yachts, Bugattis, and Michael Jackson memorabiliacould come crashing down, according to Foreign Policy (via Curbed).
Foreign Policy's Ken Silverstein reported that after a four-year investigation into alleged extortion and laundering of $100 million in the US and "theft of public funds, or other corrupt conduct" back at home, the Justice Department has filed notice of a lawsuit involving the possible seizure of Tedoro's California mansion, and other assets.
And French investigators just seized millions of dollars' worth of his sports cars, while the Spanish government is investigating the entire Obiang clan. Teodoro reportedly hasn't spent much time stateside recently, in part thanks to various legal actions against him.
Just a peek inside the insane world of Teodoro---he first came to the U.S. to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu. While tuition cost just $3,400, he managed to blow through $50,000 in the first five months before dropping out. Source: Business insier--LA Weekly.
Teodoro is listed as the owner of this $35 million mansion on the Malibu coast, which he paid for in cash. It was the most expensive home sold in California in 2006, and has a tennis court, swimming pool and 4-hole golf course. Teodoro's on the government payroll as minister of agriculture and forestry, and supposedly makes just $5,000 per month. But his home contains $60,000 worth of rugs, a $58,000 home theater and a $1,734 pair of wine glasses.
Welcome to Obamastan. The land of excess for the aristocracy and suffering for the peasants.
This sets a bad example for young people in this country. Do we ever hear about these girls working hard in school, helping others, talents etc.? No, we only hear about how they party, travel, and all the $$$ spent following them around.
To the victors belong the spoils! They won we lose. Study your history and check out Reconstruction. If the reader is fair minded he will have learned something explanatory.
Slasher and Masher will at the very least be Congressmen from Illinois when they come of age.
Or they will be The Black Kardashians.
And no, I have no sympathy for them. Or rather, the same sympathy that was shown Trig and Bristol, and Jenna and Barbra.
Why are Slasher and Masher off limits?
Oh, that’s right, I’m racist...
The Kennedys - Now in Black.

Don’t question the lifestyles of the rich and famous. They have the right to question everything about your life. We don’t have that right, so just stop.
Using the girls to get at the American people...
exactly. They hate America and are sticking it to us. It is disgusting.
RE: To the victors belong the spoils! They won we lose.
Excuse me? Who do these people work for? They work for US, not the other way around. Or have we all forgotten what the constitution is about...
NOW they are ALL in SUN VALLEY SKIING on OUR MONEY!!! They went from The Bahamas to Sun Valley!!! And skiing on Good Friday is NOT good.
Who's paying the hotel bill for the security entourage? They're certainly not staying in the same suite as the girls.
last year’s older daughter’s trip-—alone-—
I think that Barack was being groomed for exactly where he is today even waaaaaaay back then if not before. Michelle is a woman of expensive tastes and huge social aspirations and I don’t think that she would have been happy being married to some low-level community organizer with no name or money.
Their marriage always has the air of being an arranged one rather than the more common “I fell in love” type. In this they’re very much like the Clinton duo.
Even their dating stories don’t match up and for the most part sound scripted.
>>>...and the ranch being fully funded at tax payers expense was not necessarily a drop in the bucket.>>>
Where have YOU been? Bush built his house BEFORE he was president, and it was built with all the possible ways to save the atmosphere. AND he spent most of his vacations there, otherwise at his parents summer home.
Mallia and Dollia flew from the Bahamas right to Sun Valley:
