Skip to comments.Obama Trip to China has Big Price
Posted on 03/22/2014 4:13:02 AM PDT by lbryce
Jet-setting first lady Michelle Obama has placed a great wall around her junket to China, denying press access while she racks up an $8,350-a-night bill at a swanky high-rise hotel a move that is already drawing barbs back home.
Her entourage which includes her daughters and mother are reportedly enjoying 24-hour butler service, a private steamroom and in-room dining at the Beijing Westin.
For the most part, Americans get that the president and first lady usually stay in well-appointed accommodations when they travel abroad, but the problem with doing it especially now is there are 50 million people on food stamps and weve been in a five- to six-year recession, and I think thats what upsets people more than anything, said Keith Appell, a Washington, D.C.-based Republican consultant.
Pundits are also questioning why she is not allowing press coverage.

What sort of record,legitimacy does Michelle Obama have as spokesperson for America on their trip to China that while championing freedom of speech at the same time not allowing press coverage?
What sort of record,legitimacy does Michelle Obama have as spokesperson for America when all that she is preoccupied with is the exceedingly outrageous profligacy she makes the most of during this "Let's See The great Wall of China" while we still can tour?
What is it about Michelle Obama that distinguishes her as First Lady of Vacuousness as perfect foil to her "Girly Man Of No Persona" President?
What social redeeming value best describes Michelle as political icon for all that is great and wonderful abut America?
Is it her jingoistic patriotism, love for this country of ours that rubbed off on her from her husband that makes her so special? Is it her cerebral superiority, her profoundly intellectual capacity as product of America's best?
Or perhaps her incredible sartorial splendor, as stylishly fashionable trendsetter, conno-sewer of couture" that has her forever in the cross-hairs of the fashion world as harbinger of next season's 'new kumquat is orange' look?
Michelle, you big, fat pile of nothing.
Watch for Osama Obama to apologize to today’s Butcher of Beijing for the US “hegemony” that made the “Cultural Revolution”,”The Great Leap Forward” and the Korean War necessary.
Her entourage usually includes about 30 or 40 others “guests.” How many are on this trip?
My guess is, she’s a mule and delivering SOMEthing the now aggrieved press would spell out and bring the two grifters down before all the pieces are in place.
I read earlier that she has 70 guests this time....it’s wonderful to be queen when our tax dollars pay for all expenses.
Her entourage usually includes about 30 or 40 others guests. How many are on this trip?
She was basically given her path to college for free, and abused that with constantly stirring racial hatred and agitation while an undergraduate at Princeton and at Harvard law school.
Her Princeton "thesis" reads like it was written by a 5th grader, and is nothing more than a selfish, racist rant.
She actually "occupied" the Harvard Dean's office by breaking in and trespassing.
I read that when the Chicago corrupt machine got her an affirmative action job, she was outraged that they even expected her to show up.
When Barry blackmailed and connived his way into the US Senate, she was handed a huge paying crony job in a hospital - that required her do absolutely nothing. It did have the added benefit, however, of giving her a platform (when she decided to show up) to complain about racism and the lack of affirmative action.
While Americans suffer from unemployment, struggle to pay their children's college tuition, groan under the weight of incredible inflation (which the BLS pretends is not there), and Barry's tyrannical surveillance programs, Moochelle and her fat mother go on jaunts to China, terrorizing the butlers and maids, and spending hundreds of millions of dollars.
Must be nice to be president. Get to send your wife to the other side of the world so you can watch the NCAA basketball tournament in peace.
OMG!!! WHERE the HELL do they get their clothes from, Goodwill?? They are NOT dressed appropriately except maybe the older girl.
Its good to be King. But I have more respect to the Burger King’s King then to King Gaybama.
...and some free uninterrupted Reggie time...
The youngest daughter skirt is a tad too short...
Grandma looks like she picked her ensemble off a K-Mart rack...
You know, if they are going to spend 100's of millions of dollars of our hard earned tax dollars and act like royalty, they should at least look the part..
The big story here is, apparently, Obama’s mother-in-law is Moms Mabely
When they went to Africa, I think someone from Africa asked if there were white people in America as the only white Americans they saw with that herd were the SS.
All part of reparations, this is how I think they justify this outrageous behavior.
The mainstream media is part of it, too....by virtue of the fact that IF a Republican were in power, they would be BLASTED by the press for such extravagant spending.
If this trip is "political" in nature...why are the two daughters attending a high profile meeting ?
Aren’t they on the payroll as “senior advisors”?
Her flight home should be booked on Malaysian airlines. Thanks lbryce.
The surly daughter is not really there. Her mind is on the boys not allowed to get within 50 feet of her lustful body
Her face is a perpetual snarl
She is trouble, very bad news
She never flies with the president....... too dangerous
The fact that the millionsS of dollar$ for this VACATION is being forcibly extracted from our strapped, shrinking, puny bank accounts and transferred into the coffers of a far-way dictatorial COMMUNIST country is not getting enough attention.....particularly from the approving, fawning LSM.
If a vacation is urgently needed at this critical time for the over-worked, over-stressed Obama female quartette think how much those millions would benefit some AMERICAN private resorts in gorgeous settings with interesting, educational and restful sightseeing opportunities for Moochelle, granny and the kids.
Large and small private businesses are SHUTTERING all over this country....we can see it with our own eyes in our community's big malls, strip malls and Main Streets. It's appalling and frightening in the extreme.
If our First Family wants to vacation, think of the money they are pumping this week into the pockets of a murderous thug regime in China instead of going into the hands of American vacation areas surrounded by private entrepeneurial businesses (and mom-and-pop ancillary local stores, shoppes, restaurants, hotels and other ventures) which could use some of our taxpayers' million$ now being thrown with abandon into the hands of our enemie$ and their war machine.
This is all so insane.
I guess the fact that Washington DC and its suburban environs is now one of the most wealthy and thriving areas in our nation has BLINDED our pooh-bahs on the Potomac to the nearing-desperation economic conditions of small and medium private businesses plus mom-and-pop endeavors stretching across the fruited plain from sea to rusting sea.
I say that if it's too mundane, boring, and not "Grand Tour" enough to attract vacations in the USA by and for the free-spending Royal Family With Grand Entourage, the least the Obamas can do is vacation and rest up in their Chicago south side home for near-free...... and spread their discretionary vacation millions around to an American neighborhood that desperately could use it.
There's beautiful, awesome, educational and cultural things they could see and do along the Windy City's gorgeous lake front...with time left over to vist Bill and Bernadette Ayers, the Rev'rund Wright and all their old anarchist/communist hometown pals of the same stripe they're blowin' our money with in Beijing and in the shadows of the Great (oppressive) Wall of Berlin...oops. China.
“It is so important for information and ideas to flow freely over the internet and through the media,” Obama said told an audience of about 200 U.S. and Chinese students at Beijing’s prestigious Peking University.
“My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our media and our fellow citizens, and it’s not always easy,” she added. “But I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”
It's a trick question....
Ans: All of them.
“while she racks up an $8,350-a-night bill at a swanky high-rise hotel”
This is the ransom the taxpayers are paying for the Chinese to keep her there. If they added in the POS, her alleged spouse, I’d be happy to make it 80K a day.
MICHELLE OBAMA: “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
Barack Obama: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That’s not leadership.”
Mooch’s $12 K dress YOU paid for.
Chinese Prostitutes and Brazilian Cotton Farmers
LOL! Love your screen name, and I hearby nominate your post, for post of the day!
To echo another poster upthread, Dear Lord,grant us the strength to survive all of these self serving, treasonous political elites.
May God bless.
Bored much, Malia?
Michelle Obama, her two kids, her mother, and numerous aides will enjoy a taxpayer-funded trip to China from March 19 to March 26. White House officials refuse to tell U.S. taxpayers how much they will shell out for the trip, likely due to inevitable media scrutiny.

“She is trouble, very bad news”
She’s a 15 year old girl,that’s the way a lot of them look when away from their friends.They outgrow it.
She was butt-ugly then, as she is now.
The Obamas are itinerant luxury-loving parasites, living high, greedily sucking at the public teat......(wire-transferring a bundle offshore for a cushy retirement and to finance Mrs O's political ambitions?).
This'll make you even sicker.
NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for M/M O to live large on the taxpayers' dime: a grand total of $1.4 billion per year: 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).
$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 O handed out to these oil-rich satraps. There's serial Ohaha vacations costing taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate Hawaii vacays is $4 million each, but is probably five times that); the pricey Martha's Vineyard stays; Mrs O's costly trip to elite Marbella w/ an entourage of 30. Mrs O's $3900 PER NIGHT in a posh Ireland hotel with 30 more rooms for her entourage. $100 million alone was spent for the African apology tour.
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 only Boobamba himself was "enrolled" --and not his family---in a faked-up PR ploy.
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."
Not to forget a succession of designer dresses and gowns----like the $12,000 Caroline Hereara creation worn for the Frenchy state dinner (a bribe from Obama for his blonde indiscretion at the Mandela memorial?).
Mrs O has 24 assistants (at last count) at her beck and call. Her
wardrobe, nails and hair pieces subsidized w/ tax dollars
of struggling Americans.
When these two grifters are roaming around the WH alone at night in their pjs, they have to be laughing their a$$e$ off.
Personally I think she is there as a means of having about as close to 100% secure communications as you can get.
The communication equipment on her plane, or 1 of her planes, and the communication equipment here in the US would be about as secure from prying ears as you can get.
When the Clintons got into trouble in the 1990’s the Chinese were always there to pull their chestnuts out of the fire even going so far as to provide full auto weapons to the gangs in LA and even threaten to nuke the west coast.
The Chinese would love nothing better than to get another Clinton in the WH.
Three more years of this jug eared clown plodding along and Hillary isn’t going to make it.
If Hillary is going to have any chance of getting in she’s going to need something to get the American people to rally around and support the jug eared clown.
A threat from China might just do it.
Democrats have the same respect for the press as teenage boys have for the girl who's 'easy'...
——They outgrow it.——
She’s the oldest daughter of the worst president in the history of the United States. She’ll never out grow it.
Like Monica Lewinsky, She’s stained for life
Beijing hotel workers already ‘fed up’ with Obama entourage
” Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ‘pretty much everyone’ and made the hotel staff ‘fed up,’ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline.
Obamas’ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama’s mother Marian Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived.’ “
Meanwhile, the eunuchs in the US Congress are servicing each other while Rome burns, ya think?
Only Obama could find ways to spend millions in a country where the cost for tourists is so low.
Spot on! She and her whole family are on an 8-year Reparations Tour, enjoying the largesse of the American Taxpayer.
At least Mooch and the girls are out of the house this weekend, so Barry and his Boystown buddies can enjoy March Madness as it should be enjoyed.
HIS MAJESTY:Boy, you can say that again.
Meanwhile, the eunuchs in the US Congress are servicing each other while Rome burns, ya think?
The fact that the a...holes in congress let this go on is a travesty. Not one is willing to call hussein out on anything..not one. Not cruz, not paul..not one. All BS..all the time. Hillary will win because legions of conservatives don’t have a voice and have given up..and will not vote..I won’t..I’m done.
I’ve been thinking that about the older one, too. Thought maybe it was just me. She’s cultivating Momma’s and Grandma’s surly attitude.
So the kids understand how chi-coms operate their old man had home schooling on the matter.
