On a $4M Vacation, Michelle Seeks $3 From Backers

Speaking from her paradisical $4 million Hawaii vacation, Mrs. Obama wants to know: Do any of President Obama’s supporters have $3 to spare for his reelection?

This is approximately like coming upon Warren Buffett on a street corner with a McDonald’s cup asking if he can have 15 cents.

Michelle’s request was part of an email sent to the Obama 2012 list today.

Over the next 11 months we’ve got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up.

I hope you’ll close out this year by donating $3 or more now to help make sure we’re ready for the next one . . .

Thank you so much, and happy new year,


The obscene juxtaposition of the first lady on a $4 million vacation while asking what would have to be middle to low income earners for three bucks – who else would they be targeting with such an appeal? – is yet another example of lack of perspective the Obamas seem to be gaining while in power.

Mrs. Obama takes extravagant vacations to Spain and southern Africa. The president golfs obsessively and is currently dining at Honolulu’s ritziest restaurants. All while asking their fellow Americans to “sacrifice” during this time of not plenty.

And they blow $4 million – mostly taxpayers’ money – on a vacation, while wondering if the small people can come up with $3.

What about renting a beach house next year at the Jersey shore? I mean, if we’re all going to sacrifice.

  1. I am not sure if anyone pays you for this, but you are a buffoon with no redeeming values. You should be ashamed of yourself. Get used to Obama being here 5 more years.

      1. Obama himself admitted he would only be a one term President, responsible for the first U.S. credit downgrade, spending more money in 4 years than Bush spent in 8 years, and sinking the U.S. deeper into debt than anytime before in history.

        Thank Obama when you can’t afford to buy a new game.

    1. Dan–please wake up from your night mare. Obama has an approval rating of 40%–which means 6 out of 10 people do not like him. Get it. He has no chance of being re-elected that is why he istaking all the vacations on taxpayer money now. He wont do it come January, 2013. He will be packing his U-haul back to Chicago and has been put on the jail waiting list to see Tony Rezco and Blagovich.

  2. This is poorly written: “This is approximately like coming upon Warren Buffett on a street corner with a McDonald’s cup asking if he can have 15 cents.”

    Try this:

    “This is equivalent to finding Warren Buffett on a street corner holding a McDonald’s cup and begging for 15 cents.”

          1. Please understand,mr obomo is doing exactly what he wants to do. HE is dismanteling OUR COUNTRY right in front of us.He said he would bring hope and change.He has but it’s all been for the worse.I pray to ALMIGHTY GOD that this piece of human excrement does not win reelection when it is all over i believe he will spend eternity in a very unpleasantly hot place.

  3. I have thought it strange that the Presidents family wouldn’t vacation at their Chicago home, where they could have their childrens friends and neighbors in. The Bushes mostly vacationed at their own home, as did the Reagans. In this economy of so many unemployed, it would seem the Obamas could “sacrifice” their extravagant vacations. Most of us that have worked all our lives can’t afford to go out of town, let alone Hawaii.

    1. Barry_Misses_Reggie_Love

      The Obama’s have no friends – they are the 1%, and sooner or later the minions that are drunk on the Kool-Aid will figure it out.

    2. But that’s the WHOLE “thing” – the Obamas don’t give a Continental hoot about how this looks to the millions of unemployed, to the millions who have not been able to afford the SIMPLEST family vacation for years – I could take my family of four on a great, week-long vacation for about HALF of what this jaunt of the Obamas is costing us per HOUR.

      No the O’s are only in this “POTUS thing” for what they can milk out of it. They look DOWN on the ordinary people’s struggles. They are freeloaders and opportunists par excellance.

    3. The Obama’s house in Chicago was basically stolen property. Tony Rezko, their co-thief, if not already started his prison term, will be soon. I’m guessing they didn’t want to draw attention to that inconvenient truth. Plus, why go to freezing cold Chicago when you can have an all expenses paid (by Obama bankrupted taxpayers) nouveau riche pig roast extravaganza in Hawaii?

    4. What do the Obama’s care? They are spending OUR money, not their own. I never heard a bullshit artist as good as Obama. He accuses other people of doing exactly what he’s doing. He’s the worst example of the 1%-ers he keeps demonizing. At least the other 1%-ers are spending their OWN money… while he’s spending OURS! Phony hypocrite.

      1. You know Joyce, not an Obama fan, but you guys crying about how much money Micheleand the Obama’s spend is funny. You guys do know the Obama’s were millionaires before they came into office right? I know it’s hard for some of you to believe knowing some of you had no problems thinking W was one of you and going on vacation every other week. Sometimes, on his boats in Maine that dad owned. But he was just like all of us I’m sure… just like Mitt and his $12 million beach house in California because he’s a self-made man too. Get a clue and why don’t you go carry their luggage while you’re at it…

        1. Wait a second here Tom. The Obama’s were millionaires before they got to the White House? Am I supposed to be impressed by that factoid? Stay on message. The Obama’s $4M vacation is the backdrop. The main picture is the First Lady asking for $3 donations! What? And this act of piety, prudence befitting these hard times and feigned humility is supposed to impress me? Come on Tom. Use your coconut before spewing non-sequitors.

  4. Can’t blame Moochelle for being who she is. It’s the VOTERS who are to blame for putting these money grabbers in the White House in the first place.

  5. I once overheard two fundraiser talking about raising funds for a politician. The strategy is to find out which people are willing to contribute and then focus the more expensive fundraising techniques on people that have already mentally committed to giving funds at a later date.


  6. Where does the $4 mill figure come from? And why so much disdain for the First Lady? I understand if you disagree with her husband’s policies, but bashing his wife is pretty low brow and shows you have no class…zero. Most of you are probably just racist…admittedly or not. I don’t recall any conservatives attacking Hillary Clinton.

    1. First of all she has put her ugly self out there to be bashed. When she tells us what to do , how to raise our kids and what and when we can eat she set herself up to be bashed. The woman is grossly overweight, unintelligent and don’t give me her degree from Princeton, she was after all just another equal opportunity reciepiant which means no brains but the right color. She has flapped those big lips and jumped around telling us how America is eating wrong and on and on. Well she sits around eating 1600 calorie burgers and fries, bacon wrapped pork and on and on. That thing is a witch.

      1. Wow…so much anger. She is absolutely not “grossly overweight”. She’s certainly not skinny, but come on. Black women usually have bigger butts than white women…it’s just genetics. And she tries to advocate better diets for kids when an alarming amount of them are obese (which she is not)…I mean, how dare she? Please. You exposed yourself as the racist pig you are with your “big lips” comment. You’re the monkey…not her or her husband (as much as I disagree with him on A LOT of stuff). Evolve.

          1. Not a racist bone in my body. I said “usually”. Sorry, but it’s true. I know because I have a bad habit of looking at women’s butts a lot…black and white…and asian and hispanic for that matter. So, again…not racist. Maybe a bit of a pig, but not racist.

        1. You bet your @ss we are angry! We are angry with the total disdain they show for the tax payers of the country and their arrogant “Let them eat cake” attitude. If you don’t like our comments, I suggest you go over to the Huff & Puff where they will be more receptive to your BS comments.

          1. Maybe so (I personally think that train was set in motion some decades ago) but Obama only stopped that train long enough to climb on and throw it into over-drive.

            Speeding faster and faster down the hill now, with the abyss waiting at the bottom….

          2. What difference does it make if you are a Liberal or a Moderate? As long as you look this injustice and you protect this woman when she used $4M Tax dollars to finance her vacation at a time average Americans are getting poorer by the day – and still criticizing people being frustrated? I tell you PEOPLE ARE PISSED BY HER.

        2. He was correct about the Princeton degree though. Have you read her thesis? All of the misspelled words and very poor grammar on a thesis from Princeton? She was given her degree and also the jobs that came afterwards. Yet she had nothing but bad things to say about the US. If she had to actually earn her way in the world today, she would not have been successful at all. However, as a healthcare provider, I have to agree that she is not overweight at all. Her posterior is a little larger than the rest of her but she is not “grossly overweight”.

          1. Her posterior notwithstanding, she is grossly audacious.
            I wouldn’t care if she weighed 300lbs.
            The ‘in your face attitude’ they display is what enrages me.

      2. And it’s recipiEnt genius. Typical ignorant redneck who thinks whites are superior to minorities, when you’re obviously grossly uneducated.

        1. I’d put 100 “ignorant rednecks” up against 100 African Americans from “da hood” in an intelligence test, politics, speech making, driving skills, writing, literature, computer skills, mechanics, just about anything. Of course maybe not basketball, but as you say it’s just “genetics”.

          1. And for the record people…I’m not some bleeding heart, left-wing liberal here to defend Obama. I also think Obama lies to us and that he’s another pawn of the Wall Street gang. I just don’t think it’s fair to beat up on his wife.

            Ron Paul in 2012 baby! Our only hope to take America back from the corporate elite (who consider all of us – poor and middle class whites and blacks – the same…as sheep).

          2. B. Gavin; You don’t think it is fair to beat up on Mooch? Well too bad. People who know her from Chicago know exactly WHAT she is.

            She IS a disgraced, disbarred (by court order) former attorney. She was also fired from her city job. She got her job at the U of C Medical Center by political connection….a job that was created for her and has never been refilled since she left.

            She IS a lifelong racist as was her dad…a union hack for the democrats. She is has written racist papers excoriating whites. She has publicly, verbally bashed whites as often as she could.

            She IS a hypocrite to the max. She whined about having to pay off college loans. She has whined about finances when younger, yet has NEVER held any type of employment for more than 3 years and then ended up being fired.

            Worst of all, she stands up and lashes out about the diets of American’s while she thrives on the most expensive foods on the planet. Yes, she has gained weight with her overindulgence.

            This woman has NO clue about fashion or even ladylike decorum. Look at some of her photos. You can damn near see her ‘carpet’ because of her unladylike positions when she sits down. The woman is almost 50 and she acts and dresses like some teeny bopper, yet she has the unmitigated gall to criticize others.

            She has brought the wrath down on herself B.Gavin, by her hideous behavior and outrageous spending. She is NO First Lady. At best she is a 3rd rate racist interloper.

          3. Gavin, if you don;t want to vent your frustration that’s fine with me. but don’t try to stop other people who are totally pissed by this woman and her husband. I am apolitical. I am just pissed at this couple’s audacity and arrogance!!

            Let forget about her physical fatness (or not). She is a FAT PIG munching on Tax dollars!

          4. I hate to tell you but the Ivy League educated African Americans tend to be such beneficiaries of Equal Opportunity grants that they have nothing but a sense of victimization. Take Cornell West. I would put most rednecks up against him in any intelligence test. Mr. West tends to make statements with no basis and then proclaim them as facts. That, my friend, shows ignorance and not intelligence. For this, he is lauded as a “genius”.

        2. Yep, there goes the angry black man making redneck jokes and starting the reverse-racism. And society lets him get away with it….pathetic

          1. Gavin – you’re a total idiot for arguing with EVERYONE on here. You’re proving what a dysfunctional mental case you truly are. Nothing like proving the stereotype of liberals. You’re not a liberal? Right! Pigs fly too. You’re a liberal and a liar but that’s pretty much the same thing.

          2. Gavin you sound like like an OK Irish guy. But please let people vent their frustrations at the Obamas. I think they are wrong to use huge amount of tax$ to finance their vacation! And their arrogance is showing everywhere they go.

        3. How is a typo considered “grossly uneducated”? It’s easy to make typing errors when you are “riled up” like people are, and angry. If you can’t, or won’t, understand why people are angry at the Obamas, specifically Barack Obama, then you have not been paying attention. As for your use of the term “rednecks” – what exactly IS a redneck? I think your “typical” elitist, liberal, know-it-all and “I think I’m better than you” leanings are showing. And, an Ivy League eduction doesn’t mean squat. I’ve known people who have only a high school eduction that have more brains and good sense than the two pathetic jerks living in OUR White House. Good enough sense to NOT go on an extravagant vacation when their country is in PAIN and its people are HURTING. Wise up buddy. The American majority ARE ANGRY and your lame excuses for the most despicable president this country has ever had to endure will do nothing to quell our anger. Obama has to go. If you don’t think so – you are, again, not paying attention.

          1. I agree he needs to go. He talked a big game and did nothing but continue the pro-war and pro-big business policies of the Bush administration. My only point is take it easy on the wife. Even the mafia doesn’t involve the wives.

            But I do appreciate your post. The other posts I replied to came off quite ignorant, which is why the name calling came into play. I just feel like a lot of the criticism has racial overtones, which bothers me.

          2. ” . . . feel like a lot of the criticism has racial overtones, . . . ”

            So what if they do? To Liberals, all conservative views have racial overtones. Liberals will label ANYTHING a “racial overtone”.

            Look, this is WAR. If you have been paying attention, over 75% of American voters DO NOT APPROVE of the direction America is headed. And, who exactly is “heading” us there? Barack Obama and the “Progressive” Liberal Democrats. That is THE TRUTH. The gloves are off and if some posts have “racial overtones”, then so be it. It’s just to GD bad. Any sitting president who would have the cruelty to threaten senior citizens and our veterans with the statement that he isn’t sure if social security checks will go out – IS A DESPICABLE president and human being. Does THAT bother you? The fear mongering this president and his party direct toward old people and our veterans??? It should bother you more than some perceived “racial overtones”. Obama lies with every breath. He is vile.

          3. You lose your credibility when you insert race into the equation, because regardless of the validity of your points (not you specifically), it just comes off as hate mongering. If it’s obvious you’re a racist (again, not you specifically), then of course you’re going to criticize the guy, regardless of what he does. So, therefore, you’re words become a little hollow.

          4. I didn’t insert race into it, YOU did. I am saying it’s too darn bad if it insults your sensibilities. People are sick of political correctness and not calling a spade a spade (pun intended). “Racist” is overused as a ploy and a form of shutting people up so truths can’t be heard. It carries no meaning anymore. Many people are at a point where they just don’t give a rat’s petard about being “polite”. I am there. I am an old woman and WILL NOT have MY freedoms, rights, property and/or self abused and/or infringed upon by ANYONE. I don’t care what color they are or what race they are. I EARNED my rights by being a productive, law-abiding citizen for over 40 years (and then some). Obama has been hiding behind his “race” all his life as has his wife. They have abused “the system” that taxpayers support. They have abused America. They are users and abusers and traitors. Their entitlement mentality is disgusting, as is anyone who doesn’t, or won’t work toward their own prosperity – sink or swim. There is no thought of character-building any more. This has become a world of people with no strength, no character, no morals, no ethics, no shame, no conscience and no goals other than WANTING something for nothing. Obama promotes envy and revenge FOR that envy. Where do YOU stand? I won’t venture to guess. I find your smugness off-putting, but I won’t hold that against you.

          5. He deserves more than criticism. He deserves impeachment. Unfortunately, we’ll have to do with voting him out. The pols on “The Hill” don’t have the guts to implement impeachment proceedings, even if it would be symbolic only. They don’t have the courage to show Americans that this president IS NOT above the law and IS NOT above the Constitution.

            I’m tired. Goodbye. Happy New Year everyone. Life is short – standing up for yourself may make it shorter, but much more satisfying! TaTa.

          6. “You’re a racist” = I don’t have to hold up my end of the argument. Do you support Herman Cain on the Republican side? Racist. Don’t like Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court? Racist. See how it works?

          7. And I didn’t label “anything” as having racial overtones. I labeled someone’s “big lips” comment as having racial overtones.

          8. Dear ObamaLIES, Bravo! You have said what has been caught up in my throat for years! I feel relieved just looking at your post. Yes, “Racist” so what? I would direct you to Obama’s policy towards to Muslims terrorists. May be you have not read too much about it. But they are available everywhere. I promise you the facts out there about his Muslim worshiping policies will blow your mind! Know a bit more about Quran, know a bit more about Islam, know a bit about Muhammad and know a bit more about how the whole West is bending backwards to please Muslims, you will know America is toast!!

            Any truth you tell about Muslims, it’s ISLAMOPHOBIA!! Just like the word “Racism” which is designed to silence free speech, hiding the truth and intimidate unfavorable opinions. Now it is Politically Incorrect to say anything negative about Islam. And you will get to know Islam when you read Sura 9 in the Quran which calls for Jihad (holly war) to subjugate of kill non-believers. Yes, this is the core teaching of their “bible”. Please learn more and find out for yourself and find out what Obama is doing about it.

          9. Yes we should make a law that the Obamas are not allowed to celebrate Christmas or ride on Airforce One like every other President. Let’s make them walk to a local Motel 6 for the holidays. Hey, that would free up “YOUR White House” for the holidays. Let’s let you and your anger bunk vacation there.

          10. “Obamas are not allowed to celebrate Christmas” – they aren’t Christian, why would they celebrate Christmas? Muslims don’t “celebrate Christmas”. Motel 6 is too good for these liars and parasties.

            Hey, it’s YOUR White House too. The Obamas don’t belong there and should be kicked out on their Marxist/Communist/Socialist (take your pick, each apply) rear ends. My anger will continue until Obama is GONE. And, Jack, I don’t “bunk” with traitors.

          11. The Obama’s are Christian, Ezek. 22:29,31. “The people of the land have practiced oppression and committed robbery, and they have wronged the poor and needy and have oppressed the sojourner without justice… Thus I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their way I have brought upon their heads,” declares the Lord GOD.

            Jer. 5:28f. “[The wicked] do not plead the cause, the cause of the orphan, that they may prosper; and they do not defend the rights of the poor. Shall I not punish these people?” declares the LORD. “On such a nation as this, shall I not avenge myself?”

          12. Obamas ARE NOT Christians, they are Muslims INSIDE. They like to make a big show of their Christianity on the OUTSIDE, but their core beliefs are Muslim. I believe that with every cell of my being.

          13. I have to say that sometimes even I who is a stickler for spelling, makes mistakes especially when I am on my iphone or ipad. Those darn machines sometimes change your words and they aren’t always the most appropriate words. not making excuses, just stating some facts.

            now back to the fun…

      1. They shouldn’t have to apologize for being wealthy. They both worked hard and earned advanced degrees from Ivy League schools. I just don’t understand you hard core right-wingers sometimes. I mean, the Republican party is “of the rich, for the rich”…until it suits you to bash the other side for doing the exact same thing. You’re the hypocrite.

        1. Hey, first off, I’m not a right-winger. Is that what you call everyone who disagrees with you Gavin, and second off, this first lady has lectured the rest of us about what to eat and what to think more than any other first lady. And then she goes and does the opposite. That’s called a hypocrite in my book, republican or democrat. If you’re going to talk it, then walk it.

        2. You cannot defend the indefensible, but thanks for playing. Lovely parting gifts. These people are lowlifes and living proof that mere graduate degrees are irrelevant to forming any meaningful judgment about a person’s moral worth. Judge them on their deeds and the true shabby picture emerges. I judge them both morally bankrupt on account of three years of conspicuous consumption, on my dime yet, without even getting to the merits of their debased ideology.

          1. You don’t get degrees from Columbia and Harvard, then win state and US Senate seats, and then the presidency without working hard. Come on. You don’t have to do manual labor to work hard.

          2. I think since we have a black president and first lady – it’s obvious affirmative action is no longer necessary. Let’s put an end to affirmative action NOW.

          3. Good. You get the ball rolling by calling, writing and emailing your elected officials – demanding that they do away with Affirmative Action. cc: us, ok?

          4. Mr Obamalies..You are showing your Christianity or NOT. The Lord says he is not willing that any should perish. Paul said if you’re not against me you’re for me let them continue in the faith. Finally, a Muslin can not claim to have converted to Christianity, the penalty is death according to the Koran. That fact would bring joy to a real Christian not reproach, repent so I can have that joy for you.

        3. He got a degree which no one has seen and he went to school as a foreign student. So he was not an American citizen when he enrolled or he lied. Both are crimes.

        4. “Worked hard”? At what B. Gavin? They are both disbarred. Ergo, all that money Mooch whines about for education is now a waste since neither can never practice law again. Obamao NEVER held a full time job in his life. When he was a state politician, he was also a p/t lecturer, thereby cheating the taxpayers of IL.

          Obamao hooked up with Ayers and Ayers even wrote his books for crying out loud. Then he hooked up with Rezko and a bevy of other crooks and lived off their “political” support.

          If he is so effing honest and hard working, why are ALL his records sealed? Why are the Mooch’s records sealed? She is not an elected anything. Oh wait, maybe it’s because her racist rants would be embarrassing? Obamao had less vetting than a GS1 secretary. Now why is that? Why did he have an EO already written to be signed IMMEDIATELY after he was sworn in to seal his records?

          Face it, Obamao was hand picked and groomed for his position because he was malleable. He had a thirst for fame and allowed himself to be 100% bought and paid for by the likes of Soros, Ayers, Rezko, Farrakhan, Axelrod and the rest of the Marxist/Socialist pigs who are out to take over America.

          Keep your head in the sand Gavin. It appears to suit you well.

          1. BRAVO.

            Everything Obama does is politically motivated. All his appointments, especially to the Supremes. Elena Kagan was the solicitor general for his “birther” lawsuits and she must have done a bang up job, because each of those suits were “dismissed”. So, she got herself a nice little promotion as payback. Obama spends taxpayer money for all his paybacks. That alone should infuriate Americans.

        5. Unfortunately, they didn’t accumulate any wealth until after he was elected to the Senate. No they were not accomplished people prior to that. That is one of the problems with elected office today. They go to Washington DC with modest means and come back multimillionaires.

        6. Well Gavin, consider me a proud right-winger.
          Though somewhat devoid of common sense, you appear to be just another liberal, attempting to converse with knowledgeable people while insinuating that any opposing opinions are to be considered ‘racist’.
          Skin color makes no difference to me. character does.
          I have not seen your defense of the Obama’s character, maybe I missed it.
          Sorting through your liberal diatribe is at best mind-numbing.
          Reading your posts is indeed entertaining.
          It gives one perspective on the level of intelligence existing throughout the blogosphere.

          1. I love it when liberals come on conservative blogs and try to spar with them. It’s an opportunity for conservatives to shine the light on their twisted rationale. Happens every time and they say we’re the uneducated rednecks. Hilarious!

    2. BG – You wrote: “Most of you are probably just racist…” Give it a break, already. From the beginning Michele really really did not like her cameo role. Word had it she thought she was in some sort of hell, compared to her six figure paycheck position back in Chicago.

      So she gets her 747 travel perks. If I were her I’d do the same thing. But you need to remember. She flat out said the election of her husband was the first time she felt proud of her country. That, despite her six figure paycheck at the time. If I hear one more Lefter whine about all us racists I am just going to puke.

      Dramamine all around, bar keep.

    3. Hillary always went on trips with her husband and did not cost the tax payers additional money because she wants to leave 3-days before him.
      And she does this everytime they go on a trip. I pay taxes. And this is not right. Wise up and look at the facts.

  7. Dear Leader & The First Moochette need more of our money that Tax Cheat Timmy is allowed to take @ this time, please give ’til it hurts.

      1. He calls the First Lady a slut, but I need to slow down. As much as I disliked W, I still respected his wife. No need for that kind of talk.

          1. Every president took their vacations AT THEIR OWN HOMES (except for the first grifters; the Clintons, who needed to rent fancy homes on Martha’s Vineyard). Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Reagan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 ALL vacationed at home. Eosenhower vacationed at Mamie’s mother’s home in Denver, Nixon used Camp David, Ford borrowed homes from friends in Palm Springs.

            ONLY THE OBAMAS SPEND $$$,$$$,$$$ to rent MANSIONS!!! They are N-rich! They prove the adage about being N-rich!!!!

          2. disgusted with this president

            Sadly, you have no clue as to the facts. The Bush’s vacationed at their homes as well as Camp David. The lack of concern of the economic plight our country in is so easily evidenced by what this President’s record is and has been since the day he has been in office will very sadly tell it all. As an independent and of course only one vote, he surely has lost mine. He has been a tremendous disappointment to our great country both domestically as well as world wide!

          3. When Bush vacationed with his family, they all flew together. They never took separate flights. There have been many articles written on how Moochelle does not like Washington DC and looks for every opportunity to get out. Unfortunately, it seems, she has no regard for the peoples’ money and how she misspends it. The Bushes traveled together on vacation. Look it up. When they travel separately, it almost doubles the costs of the vacation.

          4. U don’t know what they did back then it very possible they flew separately on occasion. We respected our leaders and understood perks come with power like the GOP touts for the RICH. No one envisioned a BLACK would get in there and all these hillbillies would come out of the wood work dying to put him in his place for the normal perks Presidents have always enjoyed.

          5. If we respected those leaders, it was because they had EARNED that respect by actually LEADING and setting good examples.

            All I see from Barry and Mooch is a pair of freeloaders, milking the Presidency for all that they can get from it, showing complete and utter disdain for the suffering of the people they are supposed to serve.

            At a time when so many can’t afford the simplest family vacation because they have more important things to worry about – like jobs, food on the table or a roof over their heads, this pair go and spend more than TWICE as much per HOUR than I spent on the last family vacation we managed to take.

  8. This stupid wh or e needs to be put in a cage where she belongs. How dare she ask for others money while enjoying a 4 million dollar vacation while 80% of the country are worried about paying their morgage and putting food on the table . not only should they be out of the White House they should be in jail!

  9. Keith,
    I don’t know why you wrote this non-story. To imply any connection between “so called” $4M vacation trip and a clearly regular fundraising email is highly suspect. I read that link to the Hawaii Reporter article and it is full of guesses (No actual budget data on the trip is in there). The only fact in the whole piece about the actual trip is that the Obama’s are paying for their own vacation rental! Why wouldn’t someone send out a fundraising email at the end of the year? Sounds normal to me. In fact, you could probably write that same article about any of the GOP candidates. BTW the “sacrifices” or taxes are for the Rich who are NOT living in a time of “Not Plenty”. I could site many articles about income inequality over the last 10 years.

    I would be interested in the difference in cost between Obama staying in DC vs. going to Hawaii. Security, Air Force One on standby, staff, etc are all items that would have to be paid for regardless if the the president was on vacation or not. So whats the difference? The fuel? No way that’s $4M.

    However, Obama wouldn’t need any of that cost if he wasn’t the President of the United States. He’s a target for the crazies because he won the election. Why blame the guy for costs that are part of the job?

    1. It’s “let them eat cake” Michelle!
      What has my first ‘lady’ done for my country to make me feel proud? Not a darn thing!
      They could have vacation in Camp David, a lot cheaper and safer!

    2. To start, FPlay, some staff at the White House continues to be paid while the Prez is off on his vacay — do you think they are left without any income for the days that he is away? The rest of the staff who fly with him are paid — and get per diems, and are put up in a hotel, and are flown to their destination. Perhaps this little cracking of your “business as usual” fantasy will lead you to consider more of what costs are involved when a President travels. Then add in the costs of a First Lady who just can’t wait around for the President, but must have her own entourage flown on her own airplane when she feels like going.

    3. LMAO @ Fairplay. If they had stayed at the WH, there would not be the cost of FOUR planes, dozens of expensive hotel rooms and food costs. Extra bucks for all the extra security because of being on the beach. The added cost of home security set up in their tax paid rental.

      I hope you don’t run a business Fairplay. You certainly don’t have a clue what these little ‘junkets’ cost us taxpayers.

      If this is a vacation, why does Mooch need so many aides along? Is she incapable of dressing herself now? Why does she need to fly in a different plane? Why the need for some 80+ rooms at a hotel? Or all the extra rentals at $1,000+ a day for Seals? Police overtime? Added security devices which cost in excess of $300,000, only to be removed once the fools leave. The costs are endless for these trips.

      According to the Obamao’s financial statements, they are only worth a little over a million dollars. So how in the hell can anyone say they pay for these trips? They would have been broke after Mooch’s Spain trip. It must be those offshore accounts where his payoff money is going. Not likely.

      1. michelle never travels without her hair dresser and make-up artist. I am going to guess they all don’t sleep in the same room and someone has to pay for their lodging and food. – and these are not the only people that travel with her – but obviously a fashion designer isn’t there.

    4. Fairplay, c’mon, you really aren’t that stupid are you ?
      If you don’t understand my question, please do the Country a favor and sit out the next election,….please.

  10. They have all the nerve. The Obamas tell us Americans to tighten their belts because we are in tough times. While they and the rest of the Dem’s hot trot around the world spending our money like drunk sailors. Then tell our troop we are ending the wars and bringing you home so you need to vote for me to help get me reelected (all the while behind our troops back the TSA says returning troops are a main terrorist threat). Don’t forget to eat your veggies while drinking the koolaid.

    1. If the Obamas are seriously concerned about the deficit and the well being of the US economy, I am sure they would find a way to cut the vacation cost in half! By the way why does this woman need a vacation? She is not doing anything. She is having vacation everyday!

    1. Sis doesn’t like to fly, and besides, the taxpayers don’t mind if we spend a measly $4 mil on a little down time. Geez, give me a break.

  11. Tone deaf, disconnected, this first couple has never had the least connection with the real world. Obama has been carried in the name of AA/Equal Opportunity sincehe could toddle. Never had a job, never been any where, done anything (like take his turn in the forces), Oh, forgot, Harvard Law Review and never published. Must have been busy visiting 57 or 58 states. For the smartest couple in the room, they don’t show me much. Pray God in a year we are rid of this pox. HIs staff…Larry and the two darrells?

  12. I would not say it is a “scarafice” at alll… the Jersey Shore is actually a wonderful place for a family vacation. Been going there for years. The beaches are some of the best in the world… sand like white silk.

  13. Obama is a fool and has fooled all the voters in the USA…..Real change will come in 2012 and the voters will not be fooled again by Barry Obama


  15. Talk about out of touch. Maybe she can pawn her $45,000 bling bling bracelets, or her $500 tennis shoes, or her $2,000 plus sun dress. The list goes on and on. Oh yeah, they’re the champions of the middle-class….

  16. they keep getting the cost wrong….hawaii vacation is about $5 million – NOT
    $4 million….the $5 million is due to the THREE flights – TWO flights to hawaii because our king traveled alone and wifey kids, dog, in-laws took another flight…the third flight is the return flight where they are slated to return together….

    the $4 million amount was incorrectly calculated by a blogger the day obama left for hawaii….he failed to calculate for the separate ‘wife and kids and dog’ flight….the flogger failed to include the three flights….

    1. Barry…where are you to defend this??? Here, let me help:

      “Two, three, what’s the big whoop? A million here or there is nothing when it comes to the trillions this country owes…give me a break!

      There, is that okay? At least I tried…

  17. Gee Michelle, you just need 1,333,333.33 more donors paying $3.00 apiece to simply pay for one of your vacations. What the American people are looking for Michelle is a showing of fiscal prudence we’re all experiencing from our Chief Executive. It seems however those who educated you as to financial budgets forgot to tell you how important the register part of this is, no? Regardless, thanks for thinking of us but no thank you Mrs. Obama, I’d much rather put that towards my family food budget thanks to 3 years of your incompetent husbands leadership. A wonderful Non-Mahalo from all of us on the mainland to you Mrs. Miserable.

    1. These two are acting like welfare recipients who just won the lottery, OH wait, they did didn’t they, the tax dollar lottery. Like many others I too can’t wait until these classless, tasteless individuals are sent packing back to Chicago where they truly belong and fit in well.

  18. What do you expect from Mochelle and Obummer! Both are parasites that have lived off someone else’s efforts their entire lives! Both think they are entitled to everything they can steal while in office! They talk about sacrifice yet they do not even support their own relative but let the American people support them! Time to send them all packing!!!

    1. Obama in his youth went back to Kenya “to find his roots and to find out who he is”. Well give me a break! I could have told you who you are Hussein, you are just a good talker. I would be happy if you were incompetent that way you do a lot less harm to this great nation. You had your stint and it caused a lot of damage (not least another $T to the debt), now be a good boy go back to Kenya and stay there forever!

  19. Over the next 11 months we’ve got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up.
    sounds like rick perry and 21 yr old vote. sorry, michelle, there only 10 months till the election. you may take 11 if u wish. just remember to vote with the rest of the democrats on nov 7.

  20. I received her email today, while I am trying to figure out how to pay my bills… our idea of a vacation is taking a day off work and doing yard work…

    1. Don’t you know… Obama made it possible for you to send him $3.00 out of the extra money you are getting, now that the payroll taxes aren’t going up (for 2 months anyway)… ungrateful peon…get back to your yard work!

  21. My fellow American Patriots …. Obama could have bought his 3 dollar donors 22,222 pairs of Air Jordan’s at $180.00 a pop, at that would still be a little under 4 million.


    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

    Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over their has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

    1. Absolutely correct! The liberalism has been in our educational system for so long that generations have been brain washed to liberal ideas. But stark reality will wake up their foggy dreams. Nobody wants to be a sucker even he does not know he’s been a sucker.

  22. She wants $3 per supporter and he wants 1.2Trillion!!! When will they stop wanting??? When will they start saving? I know, I know…silly questions…Happy New Year from the Obama’s!

  23. Jim and Tammy Faye
    In cult worship, the Bakers demonstrated on the national stage how its done.
    The sheeple are fleeced and do without, and desire that their leaders live the good life of luxury as if somehow they too are partakers.

  24. These clueless America hating racists are going to be THROWN out of America’s House in a very short time. Just like all of their kind, they are taking advantage of all the free stuff they can, while they can.
    Very illiterate and scumbag monkeys.

  25. Aristocracy a la Jean Lafitte.

    This kind of thing is commonplace in Third World politics, particularly among that breed of community organizers/strongmen/party thugs in Southwest and Southeast Asia and those I used to see growing up in the provinces outside Manila. Of course, in the Philippines, the dollar amounts are far more modest, but the gap is the same. There, the little brown barefoot people are lectured by some bloated sweaty grandee from the back of a likely stolen 20-year-old beater mercedes with tinted windows and the saints lined up on the dashboard. Seems whenever I see or hear Michelle holding forth on this or that prescription for me but not for her, I immediately feel the same shabby feeling I felt hearing those kinds of things in the streets of Ilocos Norte these many years ago.

    I assure you, the problem of Michelle and her fellow travelers is not one of being out of touch or even having a tin ear for the effect of it all, so much as just believing to your very core that you descend from a kind of aristocracy and consequently have a moral claim to your little perquisites, all the while talking the big talk about humble beginnings and being down with the little blokes. Of course, in this case, it wasn’t Ba’ath thugs or provincial leftist warlords who were our girl’s role models. You had good old Cook County union/democrat/PUSH thuggery. But the effect is chillingly similar.

    This is aristocracy, all right; aristocracy a la Jean Lafitte, to quote Duke Ellington.

  26. This is almost to funny. OK 90% of Obama Administration is made up of WALL STREET, BANKERS, CEO of large Corporations. And to think you winning little people out there shouldn’t complain. Just shut up and Relect Me and whats 3 dollars, You probably got it in a Welfare Check, Extended unemployment check. Michelle and the Girls ,Grannie and I need a Trip for Vallentines Day, Then it Will Be Easter and yes we will need another 3 Dollars or maybe 6 and at least a 40 hour week of your free time to work on my Campagine. See Now I know you believe in all the Hope and Change I have just showed You. OBAMA 2012. If you have half a brain OBAMA will be the last person you vote for

  27. Here is O’Blamer’s report card thus far:
    This is unreal. Please remember that we hold a great deal of power…we can vote.

    Subject: Barack Obama’s 32 Month Report Card

    Please take the time to read this.

    Barack Obama’s 32 Month Report Card

    by Rich Carroll

    Mr. Hope and Change wants to create a nation humbled; humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms for one where we the people are government controlled. This would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who strive to succeed.

    A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering hope and change isn’t it?

    American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August 31, 2011. The number of unemployed blacks has risen from 12.6% at the end of George Bush’s term to 15.8% today, a 25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 34.4% from 10.627 trillion to 14,278 trillion *

    Keep these figures in mind as we recount the number of firsts for this presidency:

    First President to refuse to show a valid birth certificate.

    First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

    First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

    First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .

    First President to violate the War Powers Act.

    First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .

    First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.

    First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

    First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.

    First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

    First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

    First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. , including those with criminal convictions.

    First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.

    First President to terminate Americas ability to put a man in space.

    First President to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places.

    First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

    First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

    First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly speak-out on the reasons for their rate increases.

    First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state they are allowed to locate a factory.

    First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN)

    First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.

    First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

    First President to appoint 45 Czars to replace elected officials in his office.

    First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.

    First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.

    First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

    First President to coddle American enemies while alienating Americas allies.

    First President to publicly bow to Americas enemies while refusing to salute the U.S. Flag.

    First President to go on multiple global apology tours.

    First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.

    First President to refuse to wear the U.S. Flag lapel pin.

    First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

    First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000.00 a year at taxpayer expense.
    First President to repeat the Holy Qur’an tells us, and openly admit the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

    Remember that 32 months of Obama White House we the people have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our nation’s entire history, as the Obama’s plan their next extravagant vacation to the Indonesian Island nation of Bali .

    Hope and change anyone ?????????

      1. Of course it is…after all, lame stream media isn’t reporting it, so it must be a lie….try taking your head out of your a*s and look around. Not one thing I wrote is a lie, all you need to do is do a real fact check…instead of trusting lame stream media.

        1. Lincoln once said that if this nation is ever destroyed it will be from WITHIN. We are living to see that prediction fulfilled in the form of the two fat asses in the White House and their buddies in the Congress.

          And Roy, your keen reasoning fairly blinds us with its brilliance.

    1. Barry_Misses_Reggie_Love

      You forgot one:
      First US President to grace the United States with Two Kenyan Illegal Immigrant Family Members – Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar.

  28. What a sanctimonious ass! People lives are upside down because of this government rip off, and she has the nerve to ask for more money to help the socio path in thief for 4 more years? Not!

    1. Absolutely. They should stop asking for campaign donations. Maybe they can get Grandma to bake cookies and sell them on the White House lawn to raise money for the campaign. Or better yet, tell people to send their money to Mitt Romney so he can be the President and ride around in Airforce One.

      1. I think the Obama’s already outlawed bake sales, didn’t they? I’ll take Mitt Romney over Obama any day. He is a responsible ADULT and knows how to handle money and won’t act like the Beverly Hillbillies. Actually the Beverly Hillbillies had more common sense than this pair of grifters in the White House.

        1. Luckily America doesn’t agree with you Joyce. And I’m afraid to know what your Beverly Hillbilly analogy means except you don’t think they’ve earned their place in the White House which is most certainly contrary to fact as the votes have proven and will do so again.

          1. JackAss, Are you America? How do you know America does not agree with Joyce? Just because of the vote? Tell you what, comeback after the election and then you will know exactly what Americans agree with!

  29. This vacation pales in comparison to obama’s trip to India. Forty planes with 3,000 guests. Google the New Delhi and other Indian news outlets for the real story you did not get in the Washington Post! This trip to Hawaii is nothing in comparison.

    1. Put Laura Bush side by side with this woman and you will know why they call mooch a bitch. No matter how much perfume Mooch puts on, she does not smell a tiny bit like a First Lady. America, you should be whipped for putting those two characters in the WH.

  30. You Haven’t Lived to You watch the Ever so Lovely first lady aka:
    Chubacca Eat Feeding I Have the Smacking of those Lips Wide
    Open Mouth Chewing, Just like in Da Hood.

  31. What an elitest witch..they blow taxpayers money like it’s water. Obviously never had anything growing now they have their hands on the US Treasury and are spending like crazy..but please send us $3.00..can we please have some your eyes people..they hate this country..and will do all they can to see it crumble.

  32. IRS ought to rule that the excess vacation allowance be treated as taxable income for the O family. If my life insurance is treated as such, certainly we can ask them to pitch in. After all, they are in the 1%.
