As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle Said to be Considering an Extended Vacation

With scandal swirling about the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama may be considering an extended exit from Washington this summer, fleeing for weeks to the Obamas’ traditional summer haven, Martha’s Vineyard.

According to the Boston Globe, “Michelle Obama and the children may be on the island for an extended period.” But the president would hardly be suffering by comparison. He may come up on weekends and then stay for two weeks at the end of the summer, the Globe reports.

The White House has not commented on the Obamas’ vacation plans.

The Obamas are said to be eying a house in Farm Neck on the Vineyard. If they land there, the president will have easy access to the lovely Farm Neck Golf Club and Cafe. Here’s the view from the tee on the third hole.

It appears Michelle may be skipping her usual spring excursion overseas, which in the past has included stops at a luxury resort in Spain and in South Africa. Instead, she’ll accompany her husband next month on an official trip to Africa.

But not to worry. She already spent two weeks in Hawaii this past winter and jetted out for some Apsen skiing in February.

The Obamas opted out of their annual trip to Martha’s Vineyard in 2012, likely because they were campaigning and because a luxury sojourn there would have conflicted with the campaign image Obama was trying to project as a fighter for the middle class.

  1. What the first lady should do is take a trip out to Moore Oklahoma and extend a helping hand like passing out water, or doing whatever. Instead, as usual she thinks about going on vacation. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the first lady fels she is royalty. “Let the peasants eat cake.”

  2. Well, the islands are no doubt a lot safer than Boston or Cambridge. So, most of the student terrorists in our safe haven city cannot afford the islands, much like those of us in the middle class.

    Glad to know that the girls will not suffer spending the summer in a mansion in Washington, DC. Maybe the WH could be opened as a shelter for homeless folks given that no one can tolerate spending the summer there.

  3. like to see obama be impeached while his wife is on vacation and then she gets word of it on Fox news station, hearing Obama saying “sorry Mooochelle but yeah have to take a comercial flight back home we dont have anymore tax payers money anymore to spend and we not using our own cause its not fair ;(“

  4. “…….Obamas’ traditional summer haven, Martha’s Vineyard.”

    This “tradition” only began when the Obamas took the Whitehouse in 2009. Still, it doesn’t compare to the “traditional” Summer ultra-violence that the Obamas left back in their home town.

  5. I was getting a little worried. It’s been a couple of months since the ski vacation and all these big concerts and parties at JayZs and Beyonce’s place just don’t cut it. Got to work in a couple of huge vacations before Bernanke pulls the QE plug. Just think, the unborn are going to be working someday to pay for all these vacations. Let’s hope they are blue staters.

  6. Can we get her to take Barack with her? And make it a permanent vacation?! We could all chip in … Of course, we are anyway!

  7. she been on vacation since she arrived, both of them are the poorest excuse, to be our representatives………hopefully she will go away, till someone calls her to pack her shit

  8. It’s already far too late to “save” Amerika. When the Japanese stock market collapses and the US banks run “Operation Cypress” on your retirement and savings, you’ll be begging for a Dick-Tator sure enough.

  9. yes, such a trying life as the FLOTUS…let’s just take an extended vaca while people in Oklahoma struggle to overcome the storms that just hit. why don’t you take your happy butt down there and help out some local church for 2-weeks? take your spoiled kids with you.

  10. Just great . . . . most Americans can’t afford a weekend get away. Given the myriad of scandals currently facing the Obama administration, one more certainly won’t hurt.

    MRS. OBAMA: THE US TAX PAYERS ARE SICK AND TIRED OF FOOTING THE BILL FOR YOUR LUXURY VACATIONS. STAY HOME AND TEND TO MATTERS OF INTEREST TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC LIKE HOW TO FEED THE HOMELESS, PROVIDE CARE FOR THE ELDERLY, BETTER EDUCATION FOR THE CHILDREN. THE MONEY WOULD BE BETTER SPENT ON THESE ISSUES RATHER THAN ON YOUR EXTENDED VACATION PLANS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! STAY HOME!

    • AMEN to that SISTER! SOO sOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick and tired of these blooming flowers, isn’t it time for them to LEAVE, already???????????????ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!! Freaking ignorant stupid, liberal, goofy “fixed elections!” I have NO doubts….

  11. I’m as partisan Republican as you can get, and hate reading this story. Michelle Obama is not involved in the govt. (like Hillary was as senior advisor and major player during Bill’s terms). It is sensationalism and B.S. to be baiting conservatives (who we all admittedly have itchy trigger fingers on criticizing Obama) with stories like this about the First Lady and children’s ‘extended’ vacation plans are.
    For crying out loud, there are REAL things going on in this world with the govt. to deserve outrage. Instead, don’t be like the other side with personal attacks. Stick to the real stuff.

  12. It makes some sense to get their children away from the many messes going on but there might be a less expensive environment to spend time in. It’s hard right now for the many people who are struggling to be asked to fork over all of the costs that go along with these vacations.

    There must be a State or National Park – or even Camp David – that would be a more toned down jaunt and not have that Marie Antoinette feeling attached.

    • don’t cha know…. Camp David simply “will NOT do!” ta-da, this bunch came from some EXTREME Blue Bloods! Yup… finer than wine and smoother than the “finest of silk.”

      I think Americans voted for the lst time, and elected a KING of the HILL and some loooong legged QUEEN to moderate EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE ELSE. Now that’s a deadly combination, sorry…. it’s an obamanation!!!!!

  13. This “extended vacation” to one of the most expensive places in the US is clearly something we cannot afford. Especially since the people have been evicted from access to OUR White House due to budget constraints. Where’s the leadership, logic, fairness or DECENCY with this administration? On permanent vacation?

  14. Another “Cost Conscience” effort of the royal couple? No vacation is good enough for them at the Tax Payers expense.
    In light of the many constitutional reckless scandals perhaps a vacation would help the Petulant President remember his sudden lack of any governance knowledge.

  15. She’s really going back to Wookieland to visit relatives. She figures that if Barry gets removed from office, she’d better get all the tax-paid vacations she can, while the gettin’ is still good.

  16. Well it has almost been a month, and the country is in another crises, so it must be time for another critical crises vacation, and let someone else fix all the problems of the country as it appears that ‘Dear Leader’ has much better things to do with his time like play golf, shoot basketball hoops, take multi million dollar vacations every month.
    Then again, he just might need some more quality time with dear friend, Reggie Love.

  17. Vacation from what………? Maybe she needs a break from NUMNUTS!
    Maybe she has realized what so many of us have known from the beginning……….he’s in way over his head. Perfect example of the Peter Principle!

  18. Let him spend the entire summer at MV or what remains of his 2nd term. According to one of his underlings last Sunday(‘It’s an irrelevant fact where O’bama is………………). Probably the unsaid message was that O’bama is not running the show anyway so whoc cares where he is.

  19. Sounds like Moochelle found out where Oblamo was the night of Benghazi and is going off to cry on the shoulders of their new 1%er friends on the island.

  20. I would like to see them all on a very very long vacation. Like Impeachment. Think about it folks. This man is up to his eyeballs in these scandals, and now it’s all coming to light. He is out to destroy this country, and he is well on his way if we don’t stop him.
