Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Spending Your Money On Unnecessary Irish Vacation
Posted on 06/18/2013 10:33:02 AM PDT by EXCH54FE
If you havent already heard, Michelle Obama checked into a lavish $3500 per night suite at Dublins Shelbourne Hotel on Monday. To add insult to injury, Mrs. Obamas visit requires not just the booking of the Princess Grace suite but an additional 29 rooms for her entourage. This is not an inexpensive trip and it is costing taxpayers huge amounts of money.
The President is in Dublin for the two-day G-8 Summit which will allow him to rub elbows with the likes of Stephen Harper and Vladmir Putin. It is expected that Barack Obama would attend this event. It is his job. Which brings about a very interesting perspective.
How many Americans take their families on business trips? There may be rare occasion to do so but the expectation would normally be that this expense would be out of pocket for the family and not for the company or, in this case, the American taxpayer.
First Lady Michelle Obama is staying Monday evening in the $3,300-per-night Princess Grace suite of Dublins Five-Star Shelbourne Hotel, according to Irish press reports, adding some credence to accusations she is in the city for a quick vacation at taxpayer expense.
The White House is billing Michelles trip to Dublin as having diplomatic significance, but her itinerary suggests otherwise. She and her daughters will visit the Trinity College library to explore President Obamas Irish family roots, attend a performance by the world-famous Riverdance troupe, and visit the Wicklow Mountains national forest.
How do you feel about footing the bill for the Obama entertainment budget AGAIN?
America is sick and tired of the message being sent by the First Family. Everyone else in America is being asked to tighten their belts but not the elite Obama family.

Albeit, in this case it is welfare on steroids.
She’s still a SAB...we all know that.
Yes, they are grifters, like the Clintons.
Impossible! Why, several people on Free Republic have assured me that the Obamas are socialists and Moslem supporters. The Obamas are actually in Saudi Arabia picking dates at Commune # 412. They don’t like money or fancy things!
Hey ... the girl’s gott’a get laid.
They’re privileged fascists doing their thing. This and all of the rest of the bullshit like unreasonable taxation for forced healthcare is what our forefathers fought a long war against. Just like the last time, we have the GOP elite RINOs playing the part of the loyalists. We’re in sore need of a complete housecleaning from top to bottom.
Most of us can barely afford a vacation anymore yet these democrat pigs are on a continual vacation at our expense.
F em all and their spawn as well.
Plus a $10,000 per hour riverboat lunch with Bono
Entourage of 30 I heard .... I’m sure there’s room for the dog, kids & Ms. Robinson in there somewhere. She’s the USA version of Imelda Marcos .... Moochelda.
Wish the peopel who have lost their homes, lost their jobs, lostr their families as a result of 4 miserable years udner her husband had met her at the airport with signs biddign her farewell, and statign soemthign akin to “Have a good time, don’t worry abotu us, it’s summer, and resteraunts throw out lots of good food, so we’;ll eat well out of the dumpsters while you’re whoopping it up in dublin”
Obama needs Michelle nearby and coaching him in an earpiece when he speaks to foreign dignitaries.
It’s the culture they’re from.
I found it really strange when the lady cutting my hair was telling me about the 3 vacations she’s taken during the past year and the one coming up.
I dropped a note to a friend in Belfast yesterday. Asked how our president was doing over there.
“Apart from pronouncing a lot of names and places wrong - not too bad!
Wife and kids in Wicklow today and he had a pint of the black stuff!
Angela Merkel went out on the lake in a boat around midnight - probably for a shag with one of her body guards.”
Why in the world does Michelle Antoinette care about the Fairy King’s white Irish roots?
Well, Michelle is of the mindset you take while the taking is good ...doesn’t matter if paid for by others or not...it’s mine while I’m here.
She’s just trying to get over.
Exactly. He/they want to be celebrities, not president.
In it solely for the perks. Period.
That doesn't include the cost of airtravel, security, food, entertainment, etc etc etc. Just the hotel bill. For one short junket.
How tone deaf are the Obamas? Or, more likely, they just don't care.
The O’Bamas are in Ireland looking for a Leprechaun’s pot of gold
$3,500 would take care of an entire week’s vacation for my entire family.
The boob belts need 3 rooms.
"Let the peasants **hiccup** drink Bud Light"
Black Irish - like Eddie Murphy and Shaquille O'Neal.
To quote a reknown font of wisdom on the international stage,...
“What difference does it make?”
Mooch will spend all she wants of our money and nobody will do anything about it...we are a totalitarian state.
Would you ask your friend if Obozo’s not doing too bad there, will he petition the govt to keep Obozo? Seems your friend would be down for that.
He’s really not too much into politics or politicians. He’s just a good guy who can find some good in just about anybody.
Wow, good friend to have....except in politics!
