Obama Prioritizes Family Spring Break Over White House Tours (Party on Odinga!)
Breitbart ^ | 03/25/13 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 03/26/2013 9:16:57 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

As spring break begins for schoolchildren across the country, thousands of students will travel to Washington, DC. The trips, funded by bake sales and other events throughout the year, will allow the students to take in Washington's historic landmarks. One premier destination is off-limits this year, however. A few weeks ago, the Obama Administration announced it was suspending public, self-guided tours of the White House as a result of the automatic sequester cuts that the administration proposed in 2011. While America's students stand outside the White House fence, the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia, are enjoying spring break with friends at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Face it. The only reason the White House tours were cancelled was because Obama was tired of having to deal with ‘the public’.

A president who closes the White House from the public is a dictator.

You're kidding, right? Baraq is typically on the golf course or enjoying some gold plated travel itinerary during WH tour hours.

This is beyond despicable.
EVERY day the outlandish behavior jumps up a notch.

I think THEY are laying the groundwork for an INSANITY defense.

Arrogant + Insane makes for a very dangerous person.

Getting to be not even interested in these clowns doing jail time, just get them the hell out of my life.

I believe the Easter Egg roll was cancelled as well.

Of course, the tours + the egg roll still wouldn’t add up to the cost of this vacation, much less all the vacations they’ve been taking.

The MSM is communists driven like our current Washington DC is. America is drowning in communism. We will never recover the damage that has been done without seeing King Obama in jail for life.

Nice work if you can get it.

Next on the sequestration chopping block:

Tomb of the Unknowns (aka. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier) will no longer have Sentinals guarding it.

I am joking for now. I would not put this past the people we have in DC currently.

"Shared Sacrifice" means the Obamas get all of the sharing and everyday Americans get all the sacrificing.

Instead of whining, the selfish school children around the nation should be appreciative of the opportunity
to share in our national sacrifice so Malaria and Sasquatch Jr. do not have to forego their monthly vacation.

Well, its not like they would really know the guards aren't there.

And if Big Moo and the girls don't get to go off on their vacations, Reggie has to stay in Chicago.

As you said, nice work if you can get it. This royal family of princesses, queen, and dictatorial king, does beat all.
I have long been an advocate of time clocks in the White House. Obama is in need of having a daily reminder of who hired him and what he was employed to do. These frequent vacations for himself undoubtedly are as much a subterfuge for other democrat business as for pleasure. Obama is paid a salary of nearly half a million dollars a year to govern the people of the United States under the rules set forth in the constitution which he swore to uphold and defend. He has in fact spent most of his tenure in office campaigning and raising money for the democrat party. We should get our tax money back and send his royal upkeep to the people he is beholden to, whoever they may be. Unions, academics, etc. and on and on.

I think the ‘Palace Guard’ would be ‘fired’ before this happened.
Those Troopers are so dedicated they would probably ‘volunteer’ to man the posts....

I don't like the concept of a like button. It just makes things too general.

Your response is enough of a 'like' to get the message across, and the more 'posts' on a thread, the higher on the Main forum the thread appears.

Well... you would too if there were people running all over your house. Can't have a smoke, can't cuddle up with Reggie, Michelle can't have a quickie with the SS agents, the kids can't run around in their underwear. No wonder he golfs so much.

The Obama family blew $1.4B on travel and entertainment for themselves and their numerous personal staffs last year: that's 2000 times more than what the entire British Royal Family cost the UK ($57.8M)----$27 million bucks a week is only the tip of the iceberg: White House sources claim Michelle went through $10M of taxpayer money last year on just her own private trips and shopping sprees, with one calling the First Lady's self-indulgent spending orgy -including extravagant massages, top-shelf booze, and five-star hotels- 'disgusting'.

NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for the Ohaha's living in the White House: $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 president’s 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.

Annually, Ohaha vacations cost $20 million (the low estimate for Ohaha's Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first family’s yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.-

TAXPAYERS DEMAND A FULL ACCOUNTING OF SECRET SERVICE
ASSIGNMENTS BEFORE AND AFTER SEQUESTRATION

===============================================

REFERENCE-American kids were denied tours of the WH "b/c of limited Secret Service" (so sayeth your president)----but M/M Ohahah were taking separate vacays w/ teams of SS in tow.

Michelle Ohaha skied at a posh Aspen resort while prez golfed with Tiger Woods in Florida---both had Secret Service teams. Michelle brought a few friends and their daughters to Aspen. They were given all-day private lessons with pro-skiers from the Ski and Snowboard School of Aspen.

Mrs O and crew stayed at the home of Aspen Ski Company owners Jim and Paula Crown, who are big Democratic donors. The Secret Serice contingent was so immense, it occupied an entire house next door.

Aspen's wealthy regulars were annoyed when air space was blocked because of Mrs O's tax-paid govt plane----the regular Aspen crowd couldn’t get their private jets down, and had to be diverted.

SOURCE http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/all_downhill_for_obama_gals_9LrvaG628avMBcpShdZ80K

=================================================

REFERENCE--While kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to Secret Service cutbacks, the O's teen daughter was spotted in NYC the other night---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.

Buddakan.

=========================================================

JUST A REMINDER---THE DIMOCRATS HATE THE RICH---but don't mind wearing high fashion and diamonds, vacaying at the rich's fave resorts, spending and spending and spending the taxpayers' dime ON THEMSELVES. THE OBAMA'S MOTTO---"NOTHING FOR THEE---EVERYTHING FOR ME. " But as Mrs O whined, "America is basically a downright mean sort of place," ...... so kid's WH tours will just have to go what with those Repubs forcing sequestration cutbacks on "tolerant and compassionate" Dems (sob).

=============================================

REFERENCE "Tolerant and compassionate" Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently told Chris Wallace on Fox News, "It is almost a false argument (made by Repubs) to say that we have a spending problem (WRT sequestration)."
(TRANSLATION "And besides, we need trillions to subsidize all our "new citizens" who will vote---and make me Majority Leader, again---not to mention the billions in foreign aid we plan to give to all the countries on the other side of the border.")

MAKING THE DEALS IN EXCHANGE FOR VOTES--- L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez , (D-NJ); Dr Salomon Melgen, VOXXI Chman of the Board; Rep Nancy Pelosi (all dolled up in the latest fashion); Francisco J. Sanchez, Under Secy of Commerce for Intl Trade, and Emilio Sanchez, Pres/CEO of VOXXI at the Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC. (Photo/ Voxxi---Melgen's web site)

=================================================

Rich-hater Michelle Ohaha appears on the cover of Vogue and opens up about what she says is her biggest priority -- maintaining a happy and tight-knit family. "Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole,"

I'm surprised Mrs O did not wear for the Vogue cover, the pricey diamnod bangles she sported at a DNC fund-raiser last Sept attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor."

Musta wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."

The Gothic cuff was 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

================================================

Family togetherness--- that's a laugh. They took separate vacays few weeks ago. Been estimated he's spent some 800 hours golfing. All those shots of him on the greens never show the kiddies and wifey in tow. That's togetherness?
