Obama’s birthday gift to his wife? Time off, alone

CBS/Reuters January 5, 2014, 8: 26 AM Obama’s birthday gift to his wife? Time off, alone

HONOLULU - 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.

The president was leaving Honolulu late on Saturday after a vacation that was filled with several games of golf and dinners out. He and his children are scheduled to arrive in Washington on Sunday morning.

The Associated Press compiled a list of how President Obama spent his last day of vacation in Hawaii on Saturday:

Yes, I’m sure she needs time off. It’s a heck of a lot of work taking care of two girls, with NO outside help, no servants, no cooks....and look at the size of that big house she has to clean as well! Never mind the lawn and the garden!

Unbelievable - yet, they’ll get a pass, again.

The witch (or “B”, depending on how you see her) has been on vacation since the odumbo’s took office and on our dime to boot. If she wants to stay in Hawaii, “vacation” and travel at their own expense NOT OURS.

Additionally, who in their right mind will miss her?

I don't give a rat's @ss about the Obama's love life or lack there of. This is just another situation that taxpayers foot the bill for their royal lifestyle. At a minimum, Moosechelle will rack up a bill for yet another private AF-1 flight.

Meanwhile, the kids will be back in school and Zero can have quality time with Reggie. If that isn't enough for Zero, he could always invite Pajama Boy over for some hot chocolate.

I am so glad that the President was able to immerse his family in the charity that is from the American Taxpayer. Meanwhile, I frantically labor to obtain insurance due to his charity known as Obamacare.

“Sounds like trouble in paradise.”

Yeah the Claxons are blairing on this one. I don’t think this has anything to do with the time of the big waves on the North Shore of Oahu either. So, if she is planning on getting ready for her big birthday, why is she doing it in Hawaii, she is from Chicago? Hum

Hey Zero put her up in a cheep Motel wjth no aides or SS guards. Give her a C-note for food and a ticket for a commercial flight home. I bet she will be back in D.C. Monday. Hey but maybe Zero needs time away from Mooch.

Obama is giving? Ha, taxpayers are giving her more time in Hawaii. We’re footing the bill. By the way, who pays for all of Ozero’s rounds of golf. Taxpayers need to fund the president during official duties but his golf should come out of his own pocket. I’m betting it’s either a gift or we pay.

You took the words right from my fingers. I want to know just how many “friends” Mooch has in Hawaii. She didn’t grow up there and never lived there. I thought Valerie Jarret was her only friend and I’m sure she’s with Barry pulling his strings.

And maybe a separate plane trip for the dogs, as has happened in the past.

NOTHING is too good for royalty.

I love it when these two are away on vacation. I don’t see his stupid face on the TV, I don’t hear his voice on the radio. He can stay on “vacation” for the rest of his presidency for all I care.

Amazing how they said it was a “gift” from Obama. Can you imagine how much money it is going to cost taxpayers to keep secret service in Hawaii and then to fly her back alone? Then they will dare us to say anything about it and will scream that we would not have said a word if it was a white First lady.

Now the taxpayers can pay for separate security, a separate flight back to DC, a wonderful extended vacation when 17 days just isnt enough. Meanwhile 2/3 of the country prepares to deal with the Polar Vortex, deep snow and brutal cold. Not to worry Michelle, enjoy the islands, come on back to the mainland when you are ready to rejoin reality.

I want to know just how many “friends” Mooch has in Hawaii.

Maybe they flew some of Michelle Antoinette's friends in from Chicago so she would have someone to talk to (other than her daughters Natasha and Malaria).

She does have lots of friends, though, case in point is her Grand European Excursion to Spain in which she brought, supposedly, 40 of her "closest friends", and the royal entourage occupied something like 70 rooms in the best hotels.

There’s more to that relationship than meets the eye. She can go on and on about what a superior thinker and human being he is but we all know he’s an empty suit. She also knows there’s no there there and that’s why he was “chosen”.
