Skip to comments.Obama jet-setting: Public display of bad taste: First family's 'extremely lavish' vacations

Have they no shame! Another month, another lavish vacation for the Obama clan.
No, I dont begrudge the first family a little down time, but considering our current economic situation, their choice of venues is just plain tacky.

Obama won the 2008 election, not because he was the most qualified, but because the populous largely believed he cared about them.
It was the same in 2012. Despite a dismal record, Obama was returned to the White House because of his ability to make people believe that he genuinely cares about the average Joe.
Are we blind? Is it mass hypnosis?
There is a huge disconnect between how the Obamas live and the talk they talk.
The latest slap in the face to the poor saps known as taxpayers is the Obama daughters spring break at the luxury Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Mum is the word on Her Highness Michelle, whose taste in vacation locations goes from lavish to extreme lavish.
The Obamas pick up the direct costs of their daughters vacations, but that is a pittance compared to the cost of the entourage that must accompany them to these exotic locations.

Thursday-morning ping! Have a great day, y’all!
And that very term is, in my estimation, the thing that inhibits millions of people from publicly discussing the President's grotesque extravagance.
Because any discussion of such in-your-face behavior immediately calls the term to mind. And, in today's politically correct society, you cannot be thought to think such thoughts.
It is, however, what it is...
How do we know that the Obamas pick up the direct costs of these vacations? And how could they afford to? He only makes $400,000 a year, right? She doesn’t have a paying job right now. Both have handed over their law license, so that’s not open to them anymore. They vacation an average of at least once a month, as I understand it.
Don’t forget the filthy bastard Biden, that just charged the taxpayers half-a-mil for one night in Paris.
Fits perfectly to a tee
in just 3 years he spent nearly 1.5 billion on just himself and his personal enjoyement (This does NOT include business trips- just pleasure vacatiosn, golfing, basketball, lavish parties etc etc etc- The cost of takign his freakin dog to ‘petco’ alone was more than some peopel make all year for crying outl oud
What the hell is wrong with htese people? It’s time BOTH parties realize that we are in serious trouble and that the collosal WASTE of monety has got to stop in washington- Had Bush spent 1.5 billion on himself in just 3 years, the press would be goiogn ballistic!
“Obama won the 2008 election, not because he was the most qualified, but because the populous largely believed he cared about them.”
That is largely because the LSM was swooning everytime he was in view of a camera. I think the most sickening was the female members of the LSM taking pics of his backside while he was wearing jeans. I believe they were mom jeans, too. Even more disgusting.
“It was the same in 2012. Despite a dismal record, Obama was returned to the White House because of his ability to make people believe that he genuinely cares about the average Joe.”
That is so scary, that the media can make people believe so much that isn’t true. He’s lied through his teeth for most of the past almost five years, and is never called on it.
He doesn’t care about people. He is a cold-hearted SOB.
My, oh, my! It’s so good to see you posting again! Smiling at you! ;o)
He made millions on his books, and has other “benefactors”?
It’s no fun being a lowlife if you can’t act like one.
Yes and Yes. Obamaphobes are largely like groupies...it didn't matter whether the man liked you or not, he was black and he could talk (with a teleprompter)...Obama milked the dumbest voters among us, children singing Obama songs, teachers preaching Obama to a captured audience...the Cult of Obama was and is ongoing. Most cult members would NOT vet the man...if you did you were racist. Now well on his way in his second term, the Marxist and wife are raising daughters who feel as entitled as their parents and as un-American as their parents.
Michelle Antoinette: The people can’t afford to drive to work? Why don’t they just fly to Spain?
how could that NOT be “mistaken” for a racist comment?
Please suggest a politically correct substitute. Presuming, of course, that you can think of one.
