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

Dems Concerned About Obama’s Lavish Vacations

President Obama is making Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous look like a club for paupers.

He left the country a complete mess, heavily indebted and still at war overseas – with new wars beckoning – but that isn’t stopping him from treating himself to the spoils of his book sales, future and past, and a cascade of cash that will flow for years from public speaking gigs.

According to Fox, this is making some Democrats uneasy.

Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali — where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht.

“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. Many of our clients spend tens of thousands of dollars or more to stay at these resorts, which cater to the most discriminating and demanding guests,” said Kendra Thornton, travel expert and owner of luxury travel agency Royal Travel. “For example, Necker Island has a nightly price tag of $80,000. Anyone who stays at these properties does so because they want the best of the best.”

  1. Now they are concerned…. laughable.

    In the end, just another politico using his rise in power to fill his financial coffers and gain access to the elite clubs that the average worker never even dreams of….

    Selfish does not even begin to define him.

    H

  2. So, where are your Bali vacations, Mister and Missus America?

    Oh, that’s right…you had to empty your vacation piggy banks to afford your required-by-law health insurance.

    The message to posterity: deceit pays, and it pays well.

    May God have mercy on us all.

  3. I bet his security detail is involved in bidding wars and outright bribes to be the next to “have the duty,” the onerous and dangerous duty. (sarcasm)

    It’s not as if he is paying for any of it. Palm Springs? Old friend and decorator. Necker Island – buddies with Richard Branson and so on and on.

    Amusing no that his vacations are the only “news” that he makes? Even the Mrs. isn’t prancing around on every television broadcast extant any more.

    Gone, gone – it’s all gone and thank God!

  4. The Tsar and Tsarita Obama and the Grand Duchesses Obama have paid their dues of 8 years in the WH. From now on, they are dedicated to creating a dynasty of $ a la Clinton – anyone surprised?

  5. perhaps George Soros has given him a “forever bank account” to rely on! The puppeteer is still in control, with the puppet being willing!

    • Dirt bag Muslim put us in deplorable condition , and he vacAtions and we pay his security bills . We are stupid Americans with no b@@@s.

      • He went to visit Indonesia, biggest Muslim country in the world, where he spent his formative years till about grade 8. That’s where the tribe was last week. Can you say Muslim? They are the trashiest jet setters I’ve seen;)

  6. Good for President Obama… It’s time to get his due for all the favors he did for the rich and famous.

    What does the left think? he’s going back to be community organizer again…

    By the way, I doubt he was paying for his high priced trips, that was likely covered in his fee’s.

  7. Repulsive how we are paying for this family still.
    May they finally find somewhere they can actually be happy and just stay there, maybe gets jobs or something.

  8. I don’t get this — he was just as indulgent and “separate flight” Meesh was indulgent when they were in office. What’s so special now?

    I guess they figured he’d move back to Chicago and live the simple organizer life as an example to us all. I guess they didn’t know him as well as we did.

  9. Michele took 50 million dollar vacation to Spain and Africa with 50 family and friends all on tax payer dollar, these figures come from the Government Accounting Office, at home when asked what she liked best , Michele Answer was the RUSSIAN CAVIAR AND LOBSTER WHICH IS BEST IN THE WORLD SO SHE HAD IT EVERY NIGHT

  10. HE AND HIS CLAN CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT…………..
    MORE THAN LIKELY MOST OF HIS VISITS ARE PAID FOR BY SOMEONE ELSE.
    THE ONLY MONEY HE EVER SPENT WAS TO RUN UP THE NATIONAL DEBT.
    10 TRILLION $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    JUST TO UNDERSTAND THAT ; THERE ARE 3 TRILLION TREES ON EARTH !!! DUH

    Necker Island has a nightly price tag of $80,000…… U BET; SHEETS ARE EXTRA
