Obama Kids Enjoy Third Luxury Vacation in Past Month

Matt Boyle reported earlier today that Sasha and Malia are spending the 2013 sequester season in the Bahamas. 

This is will be the third luxury vacation for the Obama offspring in the last month. Over Presidents weekend, Michelle took the daughters to Aspen.  

The first week of March, Malia was hanging out at a "hip" restaurant in Chelsea with 8 of her friends.  (Most references to this vacation were sent down the memory hole, the Daily Mail and the NY Post have dissappeared the story.)

Yes, it is.  While the Obamas enjoy their lavish extravagant lifestyles (at the expense of the taxpayer), sequester be damned of course, nearly 30 million Americans are now unemployed or under employed.  Over 46 million are on food stamps.  The income of the average household had been reduced by 4,000 dollars, with minorities the hardest hit.  Even college graduates can't find jobs.  Every family in America owes nearly 100,000 dollars to payoff this debt.  Is this fair to our children and grand children?  Even with millions of Americans giving up trying to find a job, the unemployment rate constantly remains over 8 percent, with unemployment for Blacks and other minorities over 14 percent.  No president in U.S. history has ever before been reelected with that kind of record, no matter how smoothly he talked.  While you clearly love Obama, this wasteful wild spending is bringing America to its knees.  This is what Obama promised and his promise was a lie:

Re: Are you wanting to tell the president how to spend his own money

There private vacations dinners, and entertainment is paid for out of the presidents income. His presidential salary is $400,000 and of course he has other sources of income such a book royalties. Those personal ex[enditures are not on the taxpayers dime. They are persoanl expenses.

 

However, whenyou get down to presidential or family security, they are required to fly on government planes with adequate security against personal attacks. Secret service personel and bodyguards protect them where ever they go Just as it did for GW Bush and Bill Clinton.

 

The president and his family security is the governments responsibility because it is in our best interest. We don't want our first family to subject to such risk although some of you would probably prefer he was dead. That security is aproduct of congressional action and all those flights and security protectors are serving us not him or his family.  It's a shame you can be so petty just because having a blackman in the presidency sticks  in your craw.

False!

It is unclear at this time how long the first daughters will be staying in the Bahamas, or what the cost will be to taxpayers at this pre-expense-reporting point, but we do know now what the trip to Aspen Colorado cost.

Obama's Family Vacations to Cost Taxpayers More Than $20 Million

 

President Barack Obama’s four vacations to Hawaii since becoming president may cost taxpayers “in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more,’’ the White House Dossier reports.

Obummers Luxury Vacation last week cost billions more.

 Obummer just spent most of the last week in Israel and surrounding nations and I do believe there has not been one post about it.   The problems there cost the US Trillions of dollars and blood and the .  The only reference the sand box gang has to that issue is childish ignorance and a genius comes along joins them and focuses upon a distorted concern over the cost of  Obummers family vacations.  A clue to the expense is the story of Truman and his wife, after Eisenhower inauguration loading up his Oldsmobile and driving back to Missouri, without SS or any security.

 

  There is plenty of real things Obummer's administration is doing which are more destructive than faults and mistakes you find overwhelming more important.

Re: Are you wanting to tell the president how to spend his own money

The security detail and the plane flights are expenses that are the federal government responsibility. The president and his family do not request such coverage but it is foisted upon them by federal law. Are you suggesting that the first lady and her children are required to live less active lives because security and transportation which the government demands costs too much?

 

Mr. mensa, go back for a refresher course!
