Re: Michelle Obama - "Disgusting" - "Vacation Junkie" - 10 Million On Vacation Binges
I did read your PDF, however it did not provide any actual information on any costs incurred by the Obama family. In fact, although in the header it says updated 2007, all the references are from 200 or prior, indicating that any figures presented might actually be even higher nowadays anyway. But I do not understand what your PDF is supposed to explain to us. I think the intention of this thread was to outline the expense of the vacations, and frequency, and ponder over whether these are the actions of a responsible governing family.

Bush worked while at his ranch, also didn't really cost as much as sending the Obama entourage to the vineyard or, michelle and her's to Spain. Big difference is, Bush owned his ranch, very little cost except for AF1.

Now in contrast, let's take a look at the vacation cost. Oh yah, Bush isn't the prez anymore ffs and, he had the decency to STOP playing golf after we went to war because he felt it was a slap in the face of our servicemen, why should he golf if they can't.

Ummm, who do you think paid for the HUGE overhaul the ranch needed?

Yeah, bush was a real prince.

They built the ranch just as he became President--and he didn't rent the SS the guest house like dollhair Joe Biden does, so they could pay him to protect him

Chrissie, did you do a google (or whatever) search on who pays for presidential vacations?
 Quoting: Pollyannuh


I did. It is ambiguous at best. I guess that is how they like it. But the fact that a personal vacation is supposed to be partially be paid by the first family, do you really think that settles it all? FOr one thing, for their airfare - providing they are being honest and not tacking on petty reasons as to why each trip will have partial official business - they only pay the amount they would have paid for regular commercial flighta. So they get a quote from cheaptickets dot com for a vaca for four for $1000, and get to fly two air force jets to their destination at the total cost of $150,000.00. hmmmm. and there is the cost of her /their body guards and secret service staff that accompany them everywhere. They also have to sleep in hotels and eat in restaurants, and all of that is footed by taxpayers. So just because they pay a few bucks for the cost of economy airfare and buy their own supper, does not mean the taxpayers are not footing a massive bill for these excursions.
another point to make: if michelle's spain trip really did cost $375,000, do you really think she paid for that??? That is her salary for the year! They have spent more on vacations - even being generous about how much they would have actually paid - than they actually earn. The math does not add up to be honest, so I am thinking that while they are "supposed" to pay, they probably have more than enough loopholes in the system to avoid having to fork out too much cash. I may be wrong, but it doesnt look terribly likely.
At any rate, no matter who is right or wrong about how much of the bill is payed for by taxpayers, I hope threads and outcries like these reach the "first Ears". They have no bsiness being on vaca right now with a hurricane about to hit - economy collapsing etc. Simply out of respect for their country they should be staying close to home and setting a conservative example for people about riding out tough times together. Lavishness, no matter who pays for it, is disrespectful.

Didn't we overthrow a monarchy because we didn't want kings or elitists ruling over us, telling us what to do while doing that exact same thing?

Michelle Obama is the 21st century Marie Antoinette. Let them eate cake!

I'd be willing to pitch in for her next vacation to a plastic surgeon for a complete face transplant, a little liposuction on her wide load hips, and a long vacation at the world's best charm school.
