Madame Obantoinette

Michelle Obama seems to be a bit of a vacation junkie, and we – according to this story from the London Daily Mail, sourced from the Enquirer – are paying for it:

White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.

Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.

The ‘top source’ told the National Enquirer: ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.

‘When it’s all added up, she’s spent more than $10million in taxpayers’ money on her vacations.’

Now, it’s a fact that travelling for the First Family, with all its security, is not going to be cheap under any circumstances. Still – taking separate goverment jets to Martha’s Vineyard? Really?

Of course, Atomizer will perk up at this reference:

The source continued: ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.

I’ll paraphrase him; “there’s no such thing as a vodka martini”. There.  (And I wanna try a “sparking wine”. Just saying).  Don’t say I never did anything for ya, Atom.

And I had to mention this; it’s a photo from Mrs. Obama’s trip earlier this year to Spain:

Can there be anything in the world more awkward than a Secret Service agent trying to look “casual?”  And the guy to the immediate left of Mrs.Obama (her right) – when did Peter Garrett join the White House staff?

  1. Look at the bright side. The First Klingon hasn’t demanded a taxpayer trip back to the home planet to visit her family. Yet.

  2. That extra trip to the millionaires playground of Marthas Vineyard cost about as much as all the federal taxes I will pay this year.
    Screw ’em.

  3. On a somewhat related note, in the dramatic fashion of her age, my fourteen year old decided that Hurricane Irene, the mid-atlantic earthquake, the Navy SEALs chopper being shot down and terrorism throughout the middle-east are signs that the world is coming to an end. It didn’t make her feel any better when I pointed out that the President doesn’t appear to be bothered by these things as he had just gotten in his third round of golf in as many days during his vacation on the ‘vineyard’. Give Clinton credit – at least he poll tested his vacation spots to see where ‘the folks’ thought he should go on va-ca. The current President, Mr. Pompous Ass, and his wife are beyond being described as tone deaf on this issue.
    (also – based on the bulges in the clothing near the Peter Garrett looking guys waist, if he sees any beds burning, an Uzi or an MP5 is coming out ready for business.)

  4. And the guy to the immediate left of Mrs.Obama (her right) – when did Peter Garrett join the White House staff?

    Heh. Know what he’s thinking?

    The backbone of this country’s broken
    The land is cracked and the land is sore
    People are hanging on by their fingertips
    We cursed and stumbled across that shore

  5. Big deal, let them enjoy the perks of living in the White House to their fullest!!! Don’t sweat the petty stuff.

  6. Personally, I don’t care if Michelle Obama rides a camel across the Gobi Desert on vacation. We need to get beyond what the wife of a president does for recreation. The larger issues are weighty enough, without digging into the spouses eccentricities. Being catty is what THEY do. There’s ample bile for BO in the issues alone.

  7. Besides, her wardrobe is magnificent! Don’t you love those toned arms? Did you know she planted a garden at the White House?

  8. Well, I do care that she’s blowing $10 million bucks of our money in her attempt to prove how superior she is. I mean, after all, she’s so proud of her country now!

  9. None of Michelle Obama’s spending would make any difference at all — even ten million is a drop in the bucket — if Obama and his supporters weren’t constantly whining about the government being starved of funds.
    They want to spend your money. That is all they care about. If it came to letting you keep your money or them taking your money and burning it they will take option #2 every time.

  10. I was at the state fair today. The AFL-CIO has a very large bulding there. Out in front of it they have a large sign calling for the confiscation of other peoples wealth.

    Now we know why. To pay for Michelle Obama’s junkets.

  11. As far as the two seperate jets and motercades, 4 hours apart, from DC to Marthas Vineyard for Barry and his woman… reminds me of the quote global warming……I’ll believe we have a crises when those that say we do start behaving like we have a crises.

  12. It’s like she found somebody else’s credit card on January 21, 2009 and has to use it as much as possible before the bank cuts her off on January 20, 2013.

    I hope she’s right.

  13. Kind of a reverse “Where’s Waldo”. Can you spot anyone who is not connected with Secret Service or with Michele Antionette?
