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

Michelle to Stay in $3,300-a-Night Dublin Hotel Suite

First Lady Michelle Obama is staying Monday evening in the $3,300-per-night Princess Grace suite of Dublin’s Five-Star Shelbourne Hotel, according to Irish press reports, adding some credence to accusations she is in the city for a quick vacation at taxpayer expense.

Michelle jetted to Dublin Monday afternoon Irish time after a brief stop in Belfast with President Obama, who is in the city for the two-day G-8 Summit.

The White House is billing Michelle’s trip to Dublin as having diplomatic significance, but her itinerary suggests otherwise. She and her daughters will visit the Trinity College library to explore President Obama’s Irish family roots, attend a performance by the world-famous Riverdance troupe, and visit the Wicklow Mountains national forest.

Judging by the tail number of her plane on the ground at Dublin Airport, it appears Air Force Two has been flown to Europe along with Air Force One and is being used to transport Michelle around.

The Shelbourne’s Princess Grace suite is so-named because it was often used by Grace and her husband Prince Ranier. Here’s a look inside:

The suite is the best the luxury hotel has to offer, featuring two beds, two bathrooms, four phones and three large televisions. The bedding is 100 percent Egyptian cotton and comes with turndown service, a Nespresso machine and butler service.

According to press reports out of Ireland, 30 rooms have been booked in the hotel to accomodate Michelle and her entourage, which would presumably include various staff and a bevy of Secret Service agents.

The city will be plagued by traffic jams during Michelle’s visit, and according to one report, high school and university students are in danger of being late for final exams and are advised to allow for plenty of extra time for travel.

After visiting Dublin, Mrs. Obama and her daughters will join President Obama in Berlin for the second leg of his European trip.

  1. Our country is BROKE and we need to stop pretending we can afford these jaunts for our dear leaders.

    Obama needs to Skype in to the summit. Michelle and those kids need to stay at home.

    • Listen, they are just getting started. The Africa trip is “budgeted” for $100,000,000. This Administration is completely out of control …in more ways than one.

  2. American taxpayers should be proud to have their hard earned money to treat the U.S. Welfare Queen like royalty!

    But we have to wonder how may student tours of the White House could be re-instituted for ONE NIGHT at this hotel.

    Or how many homeless people could eat for the cost of her umpteenth vacation.

  3. The queen has landed with the princesses. I am not able to afford a vacation Thanks OBUMMERS for putting salt in the wounds.Bring me back a tee shirt from Ireland stating ” I paid for the queens vacation”

  4. It would be a good deal for the U.S. taxpayers to finance her remaining there for the duration of Husein’s term. And for the cost of HIS royal entourage, to boot.

    Just keep them the hell out of our country!

  5. Dear Miss Michelle Obama .I LIKE PICTURE IS SUITE AND MAKE ONE DOWNLOAD OF PICTURE FOR MAKE ONE IN MY HOUSE HERE IN BRAZIL THANKS .GOOD VOYAGE IN EU .THANKS FOR US.

  6. George and Weezie continue to live life to the fullest on the taxpayer. Neither sequestration, nor debt, nor high unemployment nor scandal can keep the Obama’s from their annointed lives as the first phonies. How 40+% of this country can still approve of this disgusting circus act points to the downward spiral we are in as a country and a society. Meanwhile the Obama’s snicker all day long at the ignorance that is the American voter. Shameful!

  7. What did America do wrong to deserve this miserable fate ? They voted Obama because he is black to make up for the sin of slavery, did not question his sealed records to appear politically correct, reelected him despite a miserable failed first term, and the man shows his appreciation for his bankrupted country by this lavish spending ?

  8. Oh, guess she’s back from her Bahamas-to-Aspen Spring Break vacation just in time to go on her European/African vacation – man, must be exhausting to be the Queen.

    Who else – who has no actual job – who else gets their *own* personal 747 to shuttle them around? Wonder if she’ll bring it along during their $100m Africa trip, just in case she needs to make a side trip to a diamond mine to pick up some souvenirs , or 7-11 for a Big Bite, or perhaps she can send it pick-up one of her pals, like Beyonce?

    I don’t which is more appalling – the sheer contempt the President and First Family shows for the rest of Americans, or the fact that most Americans don’t care.

    The Obama’s are the adult equivalent of Justin Bieber …

  9. What’s your point? She is the First Lady of the United States of America. Where’s your outrage at Laura Bush? Or how about Nancy Reagan, now there was a prima donna.

    • I remember in Micheal Moore’s “documentary” how he made a big deal about President Bush sleeping on “fine french linens”, you know because all the other president’s slept on 250 count Walmart sheets, right? And that was a big deal and yet, morons like you want to say it is okay for this group to take lavish vacations on a monthly basis on the taxpayers dime… SMH, complete ignorance in reality.

    • Nancy and Laura, didn’t do this.

      But then again being a Libtard such as you are distorts history. Luckily, History is replete with examples of what happens when profligate spending Tyrants receive their just rewards.

    • That just never gets old! Are you going to whine and cry when the next administration blames Obama or will YOU still be crying it’s Bush’s fault, it’s Bush’s fault.

  10. They obama’s act like the jefferson’s moving on up to the east side, except it is our money the ghetto royal family is burning up on lavish vacations and parties. The obamas are God’s curse on us for removing Him from our nation’s buildings and documents.

  11. It’s a good thing Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush and all of the previous first ladies stayed at Days Inns when traveling abroad with the President. I hear the Holiday Inn Express Dublin has great accommodations for World Leaders, their families and the secret service.

    Seriously, some of you sure are easy to persuade and lack any common sense…. and no documented proof, just a post from someone you don’t know from a right wing website…. HELL YEAH ‘MERICA!

    • Bob…put down your glass of Kool-aid….it’s the entourage of friends and political donors…escessive expense…not the trip…nor her seeing herself as royalty. The optics are hideous also…sequester…his corrupt and/or incompetence is coming too light…so he leaves the country, commits military to Syria, etc. wake up…and no…I’m not a Repub. or Bush fan…I actually pay attention. BTW….Kool-Ad is loaded with sugar.

      • Tom, the two-way street that the haters try to build is pretty obvious… so you had no problem when taxpayers spent more than $20 million flying the Bushes back and forth to their vacation retreat in Crawford, Texas? The twins traveling all over Europe and South America? Laura’s five “working vacations” to South Africa? Please, hate them if you want but don’t act like this is some new phenomenon that is occurring.

        Hater’s will hate, even when hypocrisy can be proven. As far as Kool-Aid, haven’t had any since I was 5 years old. I’m a Woodford man myself.

        • “Laura’s five “working vacations” to South Africa?” In the same short time span that Michelle has had “working vacations”? Doubt it. Michelle has that many in just a few months. Time for your BO blinders to be removed.

    • how ’bout “michele high-class welfare queen obama” i sometimes envision some civil violence in america in the not too near future. this “let them eat cake” mentality in these days of austerity, high unemployment, record numbers of people on disability/food stamps, etc. is a colossal disgrace. detroit, chicago, a lot of other cities going broke, yet the obama’s are immune from all that ‘messiness” and throw their extravagance right in our faces.

  12. It really says it all when the comments have to be delayed for “some time” in order for a moderator to approve their posting. Americans who dare to question any thing about Obama or his bunch must be closely scrutinized while Obama’s robots say and DO whatever he meticulously instructs or requests regardless of motive. This is the stuff of tyranny and tyrants have not changed their MO throughout the ages –we now suffer both from the White House.

    • JAHC:

      I suggest you read the actual comments. I believe you’ll find your protestation misplaced. (Unless you’re being sarcastic).

      • I graduated university with honors and teach math, you idiot.
        Unlike Mooch,I was accepted on my own merits.

        Michelle Obama sits with her legs wide apart, puts elbows on the table, and plows food in with her personal shovel.

        She bends over and shows her moobs to kids.

        MOoch aka Big Beard is a classless cow.

      • Bob, I’d ask why you sling such insults, but I presume it comes from being a part of the morally and intellectually dishonest and cowardly Democrat-liberal-leftist gaggle in our Republic.

        MI’s description of FLOTUS is offensive, but it’s still his opinion and its neither vulgar nor profane.

        Whatever it was, you discredit yourself with that oh-so-tiresome insult or ad hominem you slung at MI.

        BTW: I’ve two degrees in engineering, one a Master’s, post-Master’s work — and I, like MI, earned everything on my merit with any favors from anyone and through personal loans — and had two professional registrations.

  13. If this isn’t a firm grab to the nether-regions I don’t know what is…both of the Obamas have been giving big F yous to not only the Republicans, but also to the American people. Nanner, nanner, oh so sorry you’re losing your job and your house…LOL…good thing I can have the taxpayers foot the bills and I’m going on vacation every WEEK!!
    This infantile behavior is just wholly embarrassing coming from the first family. I’d smack my kid if they tried pulling this crap!

  14. The most poignant thing that Governor Romney said after he conceded the election was that “Ann would have made a great First Lady.” I know she would not have travelled the world on the taxpayers’ dime like Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, have done.

    • romney is not the president and george bush is not the president grow up and eat the grass you grew..Obama and his administration are an embarrassment how much more can the people take. my house is paid for is the only reason i am not on food stamps.i have 2 kids and a wife and have a hard time paying my light bill while this hussy sleeps in a 3,000 a night bed WTF

  15. What with sequester only applying to the good citizens, it is a shame that it would not be utilized here to make this fiasco a one-way trip whether it occurs in Ireland or in Africa, either would be fine with me

  16. Here I am trying to figure out how to pay off some medical bills for my family in installments while keeping current on everything else (glasses, meds, supplies) while this sorry state of a FLOUS spends more than I make in 6 months in ONE night. Something is seriously wrong with this picture.

  17. It says in the 2nd paragraph, The white house is billing michells trip as having “Diplomatic Significance”. You Guy’s take it from there!

  18. Once again, NO EXPENSE is too great as long it is the tax payers money!
    Now ask yourself what immediate national interest is fulfilled by the jaunt to Africa??? It cost how much?? Almost enough to give every tax payer a break!

  19. The way this family squanders the taxpayers’ money is obscene. I would like to take a vacation – just one this year – but I can’t afford to, because my taxes are too high. Of course, the Os have already taken several very expensive ones and the year is only half over. What is wrong with this picture?

  20. The Obamas should be ashamed of themselves. I’ve never seen a family spend so much of OUR money to take lavish vacations globe-trotting from country to country in the name of “international relations”. This administration is a lemon and I want my money back.

  21. Every time those two travel it reminds me of the movie “Coming To America” with the lavish suites and rose petals thrown at their feet.

  22. The question you have to ask is …. Wait for it ….

    If this is a State visit by King Obama to attend the G8, why the hell is Moochelle even there? Duh!

  23. We are sooo lucky to have a first family that understands the value of vacationing on other people’s money. We bought a shiny new fleet of tractors for the Secret Service to play with as well. President Obama has dropped a bunch of points among the young and black Americans in polls recently. Wait ’til they find out what Obama and the other politicians new immigration reform bill does to younger folks employment picture and black political power as Hispanic voters replace blacks as the biggest minority group…

    Many voter will probably begrudge Poor Ms. Obama each bite of lobster, but they don’t understand how hard it is for a family with only a few million to stay rich if they buy their own lobster and pay for their own extravagant vacations.

    I’m sure the Obamas.took this many vacations costly a year before they could do it on someone else’s nickel. I just can’t find any articles on the web to prove it.

  24. And we don’t have the money to conduct volunteer run WH tours or keep our National Parks open. Royalty takes precedence, but if we really want to save money, the two could easily stay onboard the Aircraft carriers, the Admiral quarters are pretty lush!
