Barack gives Michelle a magnificent birthday present
The American Thinker ^ | 1-5-14 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 01/05/2014 2:52:58 PM PST by afraidfortherepublic

Kudos to President Obama for giving his wife a birthday present we all can envy, indeed covet. CBS News reports:

President Barack Obama is going to give his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of - time off, alone, without the children.

The White House said on Saturday first lady Michelle Obama would stay in Hawaii, where the family has been on vacation for the last two weeks, rather than return home with her husband and their two girls.

"As part of her birthday gift from the president, the first lady will remain in Hawaii to spend time with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday," a White House official said.

Just imagine for a moment if President Obama would agree to leave the rest of us alone. How wonderful would that be? He does have it within his power to make the gift to Americans permanent, too. Rumor has it that either his presidential library or presidential foundation will be set-up in Honolulu, so an early retirement to the balmy shores of Oahu would be a great gift to Americans, indeed to all humanity. How about it, Barack? Maybe on our birthday, the Fourth of July, you could bestow this gift.

However, it is hard to read this story without wondering if there is a wee bit of trouble between Mr. and Mrs. Obama. In its December 30, 2013 issue, the National Enquirer featured a cover story entitled, "Obama Marriage Explodes!"

Precisely my 2nd thought.

My first thought was to wonder how much it is costing us for FLOTUS to spend extra time in her rented Hawaiian paradise and what is the extra cost for sending a plane for her?

As for my 2nd thought — I would NOT like a gift that left me alone in a strange place. How long is she staying?

So he’s trying to say that Mrs. Obama doesn’t have a nanny and 30 other staffers, not to mention the entire Secret Service, paid for by us, who already watch their daughters? Please don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

At everyone elses expense, of course.
Once a couple of scroungers - always a couple of scroungers.

I can't wait to see these two freeloaders get out of Washington.

Barry wants to give Michelle time to have a boy toy or two, and He wants his own boy toys in the White House.

I don’t give a darn about their personal lives. But the fact that they are billing us for millions of dollars for their various holidays, vacations, fun in the sun, etc. is really upsetting me.

I can’t believe that any other president would ever have gotten away with this. As much as I disliked Clinton, he never did anything like this, nor did Carter or Johnson.

The closest one was JFK, who seemed to be proud of his inability to keep it zipped (following in the footsteps of his daddy). He married a girl who was a princess and demanded her perks, but he actually stayed focused on his job and even they wouldn’t have done anything like this.

It’s hard to remember Obama looking happier and more carefree than in the photos of him today walking with his daughters across the White House lawn on their way home.

Instead of Michelle’s absence in Hawaii being a birthday gift from Obama, it’s easier to imagine that Obama commanded Michelle to remain at their vacation home so that he would not have to have her around after his return to Washington.

When has Obama ever been known to do anything for anyone but himself? The ‘’birthday gift’’ explanation seems like a convenient story to cover his desire to be free from his wife for at least a few weeks and maybe longer.

Yes, he did. Especially when Bill & Hillary were not speaking to each other. Remember his African tour when he took 800 staffers to Africa? And her Chinese tour when she took a similar number on a tour of China and had a gold bathroom constructed that she hauled around on a trailer everywhere she went. Then there were the trips that Chelsea and all her friends took.

It’s not like she has toddlers and has a tough time running after them all day. She does not clean or cook so what a asinine headline that this fat lazy pig needs a break from doing nothing.

Since when did it become some lauded, celebratory act to ditch your family? I feel like I live in an alternate universe from these creeps.

Oh, you’re right.

She once took fifty, or more, of her closest friends on an extended vacation using taxpayer money, and Air Force planes.

regardless of the CBS happy happy story, this whole thing has a huge smell to it, and it’s a lot worse than rotten fish odor..... there’s a lot more going on than Prez giving Moochie an extended vaca... if we had REAL news reporting, the story would also have that tone of speculation...

Remember when Chels forgot her homework, and Monica’s boyfriend sent AF One back to Dee Cee to fetch it. At the time, they were on a family vacation to the Bahamas.

And didn’t Monica’s boyfiend’s wife once forget her sun glasses, and sent AF One to retrieve them...

Oh, yeah! I’d forgotten those incidents. Then there was the time that Bill shopped for bikinis in the Bahamas for Chels and brought a couple home. Can you imagine any man shopping for a bikini on his own for his daughter (or wife) and having it fit properly? I’m sure those were for somebody else, and he got caught by the press.
