What do you get for the first lady who has everything?
Try a few more days in sun-kissed Hawaii for Michelle Obama while her husband and two daughters return to Washington so she and her Praetorian guard of Secret Service agents and assorted hangers-on can stay on the islands at no small expense to the taxpayers.
The New York Times is reporting the first lady is staying put for several days to spend time with friends in advance of her upcoming 50th birthday and staying away from the hustle and bustle of her onerous White House duties.
The few extra days, The Times reported, are part of the presidents birthday gift to his wife, who turns 50 on Jan. 17.
First, the first lady isnt a cheap date. The cost of the extra few days isnt known yet, but when she traveled to the islands ahead of the president in 2011, the White House Dossier website estimated the separate travel would cost about $100,000, including about $60,000 for a separate Air Force jet to carry her ladyship. Then, throw in staffing salaries, and were getting into the six-figure range (to put that in terms Democrats understand, thats about the annual salaries of two public-school teachers in Kentucky or one no-show public-employee union job in Detroit)
Its the kind of perfect analogy for Democrats idea of government that The Obamaphile Times wouldnt think of: Barack Obama generously gives Michelle the gift of a few days away from him in Hawaii, virtually all of it paid for at taxpayers expense taxpayers of a country, remember, that the first lady once called downright mean.
So this year, a little Hawaiian R&R is what you got for a first lady who has everything everything but class.

I’m still shocked that the dogs didn’t get their own air transport this time!
whaaaaaaat?? This time? you mean they flew their dogs separately once before???
“Let them eat cake” no, on second thought, I’ll eat that and your little dog too.
Does their dog get lei’ed after he gets off his OWN inter-island Osprey..?
Bo had his own private jet to Maine a couple years ago, with Reggie as leash holder. Great photos of them disembarking together
Bo has also had his own motorcade thru DC
Not sure about Reggie
I’m really hoping that Heaven has a ‘reality TV show’ where everyone there can watch their nemeses endure their time in Hell.
These people are pigs. I pray to God that someday, both of them will end up in prison. The gallows would be even cheaper.
For the first time in her life she’s proud to be an American.
I detest this woman.
Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the presidents dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.
There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions he handed out to these oil-rich satraps. Serial Ohaha vacations cost taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate for Ohaha's last Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); Mrs o spent $3900 PER NIGHT in the Grace Kelly suite in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage.
Grace Kelly hotel suite.
AND GET THIS---TAXPAYERS SUFFERED RUINOUS HEALTHCARE CANCELLATIONS--BUT THEY PAY $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMAS HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first familys yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why Boobamba himself was "enrolled" last month --and not his family.
More than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.
The O' kids were flying around to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks. The O's galivanting teen daughter was spotted in NYC---with girlfriends---dining at the pricey Buddakan, scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby, while students her age were denied access to the people's house.
Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.
Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."
Mrs O has 24 assistants at her beck and call.
Her wardrobe, nails and hair are subsidized w/ US tax dollars.
“Mrs O has 24 assistants at her beck and call.

And the bitch is still fugly.
Send her to vacation in North Korea with Denis Rodman. She would feed a pack of starving dogs for a month!
Moochelle was promised by Rev. Wright and Jesse Jackson that if she married Barry all of her money worries would go away and she would be set for life.
Isn’t it racist to ask a Black person what they do with your money?
Of course. 53% of the American people are rather stupid, so they figure, why not rip them off?
Isn’t it like 47% of the American people are NOT EVEN TAXPAYERS? So they don’t care.
If we could just vote her off the island it would have been money well spent
Is she sleeping on the beach or in the millionaires and billionaires hacienda?
I like your idea! Shadenfreude in the billowing clouds. Consult your TV Guides.
21. If your enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink:
22. For you shall heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward you:
The Obamas are fattening themselves up to be the center of their own luau.
Kālua is a traditional Hawaiian cooking method that utilizes an imu, a type of underground oven. The word kālua, which literally means "to cook in an underground oven", may also be used to describe the food cooked in this manner, such as kālua pig or kālua turkey, which are commonly served at luau feasts. The same method of cooking can be found in Sardinia, a Mediterranean island, and it's called carraxiau.
Traditionally, a fire using koa wood is built in a sand or dirt pit called the imu. The pit is usually about 6 feet (1.8 m) long, 4 feet (1.2 m) wide and 3 ft (90 cm) deep. Rocks are then placed in the pit to retain cooking heat long after the flames have burned down. Once the rocks have become extremely hot, the hole is lined with traditional vegetation, such as banana leaves. The meat to be cooked is salted, rubbed with herbs, stuffed with more hot rocks, then wrapped with ti and banana leaves. To maintain even heating and to retain the meat's natural moisture, the meat is covered with wet burlap, then with a layer of sand or soil. The meat is then left to cook in the pit for six to seven hours, absorbing smoke and steam from the koa wood and banana leaves. When the meat is fully cooked, it is removed from the imu and shredded. This is done to allow the melted fat to mix with the meat to help maintain its uniform consistency and flavor.
I’d gladly pay for the whole bunch to stay on vacation for the next 3 years. Might even throw in another 4 years by the looks of things.
The moderator sure has been busy on this post. Ya’ll behave now! Michelle O, has always been a Hot Button Topic. Remember during the first campaign, some magazine had a drawing of her with a big Angela Davis fro, and Barack in his Kenyan Dashiki, giving each other the high five, like, “We sure fooled those sukkas!, Didn’t we, Baby?”
... meanwhile, schedule that visit by the Danish PM, pronto...
Mmmmmmmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmmmm
It is racist to ask a black person...anything.
Probably an operation to shrink the size of her backside was beyond existing technology.
Queen’s Medical Center is good...but not THAT advanced!
Hope the mosquitoes weren’t out in force...
Uh huh. And Jarrett, Eric Holder's wife and Oprah are all there with her to "relax"?
No, this will be a political planning session with Jarrett at the head.
I do too, more than Hillary
is that reggie love’s code name???
I thought she was Dennis Rodman? No, on second thought, she looks more like Patrick Ewing
“53% of the American people are rather stupid”
LOL, I used that same comment on liberal sites.
I bet and she’s collecting big time.
Class vs. A$$
