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. The American people would be lucky to have one dollar left in their pocket after taxes, buying gas to get to work (if they have a job) and buying food that keeps going up and up…….Is Michelle kidding? Maybe she can go without a lobster dinner or arugula once in a while. They should be ashamed to ask people for more money. He has plenty in his war chest

  2. If America has EVER had a bigger enemy and threat to our freedom and liberty than the Obamas, this student of history is unaware of it.

    Why the military has decided to become a Palace Guard, deploying all over the world at the whim of the President, with nary a care about a Constitutionally-required Declaration of Way… and simultaneously ignored their ONLY Constitutional duty, that of protecting and defending the Constitution from the domestic enemy that is Obama, is COMPLETELY beyond all thinking adults.

    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.

      1. How can you make that judgement about Barack when he was handed a free fall economy. So I guess you might be right if you made that judgement about BUSH. We have to wait a little longer since Reagan was almost exactly at this point in his Presidency at 8.4 % with unemployment. Might have to eat your words like the anti Reagan people did.

  3. Elitist cow, is she proud of America still? In a less genteel era, narcissist rulers eventually got a one on one with the hoi polloi and they usually didn’t survive the event. Makes me wax romantic for the old days.

  4. The Grifter-in-Chief, and his sidekick Chewy, are just looking for some passing around cash to buy votes in the ghetto. They know that the thieves on Wall Street are carrying the heavy load, but he doesn’t want to touch that graft, because once he’s given the boot, he wants to convert the Wall Street stash to his own account. He saw how Slick Willy did it and he thinks he can do better.

  5. Everyone should take Michelle up on the offer. Flood the White House with requests for $3 dollar donations from THEM, OR…provide JOB OFFERS to provide BIG MACS, and DOUBLE CHEESEBURGERS for Michelle to eat AFTER they leave the White House in Chicago.
    After all. How much can a PRETENDER earn as a Community DIS-organizer?

  6. I subscribe to BHO’s nonsense just to know what the enemy is up to.

    They have been sending emails every day looking for cash

    I received the same email today. My response was that I would double it to $6 if she flew me to Hawaii…bags are packed and waiting for the details on where they will pick me up…

  7. When are you all going to write about the obscene cost of Michelle’s wardrobe? That sweater that looks like JCrew while looking-on-at-the-baby shot is a $1500 designer sweater and her Christmas day “sundress” cost between $1000 and $2000 (designer, of course).

    Everyday wardrobe should be a spotlight on Michelle the vain.

  8. I am a Democrat who received one of those emails you write of and the thought of a vacation I can’t enjoy crossed my mind. I am rather jealous. But you pull your $4 million out of the air. I see these numbers attached to vacations and yawn. You show no evidence. Presidents cannot move anywhere without immense security and they have to rent expensive places (which they pay for) for safety reasons. Admittedly, Michelle has acclimated herself to a nice lifestyle in the White House but it’s not much different than other First Ladies, who can travel to wonderful places by virtue of their marriages. Happy New Year!

    1. Not so, George Bush stayed in Washiongton at Christmas so his security people could spend time with their families. He gave up golf because he felt it was wrong to be out their on the golf course when our men were at war. Michelles lifestyle is way more than other first ladies and you have to know that. Camp David is a really posh place to chill out and get away without running up huge security costs and very private also. No, not for these two.they love the limlight. But, come on don’t ask us for money. Just so annoying.

      1. Why attacking the “First Lady”. She was being merciful to the Taxpayers. She could run up $8M for her vacation. You little people ought to be thankful for $4M she saved for you. Hallelujah, God bless the Obamas.

    2. Of course, that thieving, worthless left-wing man child can’t do anything wrong – just like Bush couldn’t do anything right. You dumb grey-haired, sandalista nutjob – do your research. How many vacations have they been on? Would would the Demoncrats have said if Laura Bush had take such expensive trips? There is no reason for them to go to Spain and Hawaii; they have Camp David. Besides, you hypocrytical fool, his job is supposed to be a service and not an opportunity to fleece the nation, like some Turd-world dictator!

    3. Oh really? What about Laura Bush? She works hard and hardly had any vacation – unlike our bitchy moochy. Don’t you get inspired just by looking at Laura Bush?

  9. Why not, so far they’ve pulled off the biggest scam on Americans, ie put him in the White House. Dumbed down Americans will give them 3.00 while they spend 4 million on a 17 day vacation. Plus 250.00 each on dinner. So yes they know what kind of audiance they’re playing to.

  10. Please leave our Jersey shore in peace. Bad enough we have Snookie, we don’t need any more low lives. Let them hang in the Hamptons with their wealthy liberal friends of the 1% who have no idea how the other 99% live.

  11. This type of pandering makes me want to vomit! Those two malcontents know no bounds. I can’t wait to boot these two idiots out of the WH in 2012. They have NO CLUE how the people in this country are struggling just to make ends meet and pay their bills. Plenty of Americans can’t afford to go on a vacation. They continue to mock us and mooch off the US taxpayers. They are so out of touch it’s sicking! They actually think people like them. WRONG! These two make me SICK!

  12. The woman is beyond disgusting. I see now she is sporting a new chic grey streak in her hair. Are we supposed to impressed or what? It’s bad enough that they are so wasteful and foolish but, how stupid can you be to spend 4 million on a vacation & ask us for $3 to reelect this dufuss?

  13. 20 years of God Damming our country ! Hating evil whites, Jews,ect. 20 years of black panther church ! Obama’s drug dealing, when younger ! LOVING COMMUNISM ! Full government control ! Bankrupting the country, purposely ! The liberal Marxists news never says anything about these anti Americans. WHY ? NOW WOULD A REPUBLICAN GET AWAY WITH THIS ? ELL NO ! The check is in the mail ! Even communist Chavez said he NEVER SEEN A COUNTRY GO COMMUNIST SOOOOO FAST !

  14. This smug B*stard in the White House destroyed my insurance business, destroyed my new start up commercial real estate business, hurt my family and our future. I am destitute because of the First Class A**hole who thinks he is better than us. Time to run the jerk with the phony birth certificate out of the country forever.

    1. You know, I see your pain and disgust in your words. Sorry, man.

      Obama always says he reads the letters he gets. Why don’t you send him one. You can do it.

  15. And some poor dopes will gladly scrape together 3 bucks for these disgusting people. Wise up folks – the Obamas are no friends of the middle class – or any class – they have no class at all.

  16. The more Obama acts and behaves another totally opposite way while saying he supports the middle class and is our best friend .
    Then only to have many $ 50.000.00 rubber chicken dinner for donations from only the extreme rich .
    The quicker we don’t walk but run away from him .
    He has finally reached the ranks of the few .Who can Lie repeatedly
    while believing every lie he utters since Truth bothers him not since he knows it in a very minimalist way obviously .
    Saul Alinsky Obama mentor spoke to that often especially in rule 13# his his bible Rules for radicals .

  17. Unfortunately a very tacky first couple that spends like nouveau riche nut cases. They’re embarrassing. Great expectations for the Obamas but we’ve only seen the drastic reduction of limits to personal gratification, culture, our intellect, and our morality.

  18. Yeah, so obscene. I guess our presidents’ wives should never take vacation. I guess they should never visit relatives (her husband lived in Hawaii — duh). I guess she should always eat at McDonald, never use Secret Service, vacation at a D.C. hotel. It’s so irritating reading people like Keith Koffler, with all of their self-righteous anger, about something that is common to every president. Look, they all take vacations. It’s all at the taxpayer expense. The family takes vacation. It’s the most stressful, crazy job in the entire world. I don’t begrudge any president or his family going on expensive vacations anywhere at anytime, whether they’re working by sending out campaign e-mails or not. This is a snoozer story that no one in their right mind cares about.

    1. So, how much have you contributed to this cute couple? Not exact figures, just ballpark.
      If the answer is ‘none’, how much do you PLAN on giving?


    2. Why is America paying for “his” wife’s vacation? We did not elect her!! We need to change the law so the wife gets no tax payer’s money!

  19. Seems like everyone has missed an important point in all of this. Her asking for money and support makes this a campaign trip which makes the obamas, their campaign organizations, and the DNC responsible for the expenses.
    Their bad !!!!!

  20. These people are absolutely disgusting! It’s as if they are rubbing the poor people’s noses in their vacation. What does one expect of this ghetto queen?

  21. No matter what they do or where they go, the Obamas continue to show a complete lack of class. Class is something you cannot buy and if you don’t have it going in, it’s something you cannot acquire.

  22. Moochele – When are you going to pay back the RENT that is owed for having your mother live in the White House for 3 years on the US Taxpayers dime???

  23. Now this is getting hysterical…this email just in from the Elect-a-Kenyan HQ…

    Friend —

    If you thought to yourself, “Again, Rufus?!” when you saw this email pop up in your inbox, I’m really sorry.

    But I have just one thing to say before tomorrow’s midnight deadline: These deadlines may seem arbitrary, but they’re very real.

    They affect so much — from budgets to headlines to how big we can take our ground game in the states. When we say that every donation matters, it’s actually true. We cannot win without the support of millions of people like you.

    Trust me: Nobody here wants to be a bother. But we’re counting on everyone who cares about this campaign and this president to chip in when it matters most.

    Think you can donate $3 or more right now?

    Seriously, thank you.

    Contributions or gifts to Obama for America are not tax deductible.

  24. The Republican nominee could probably win the election on that issue right there. I’d have an ad made that highlighted the $3.00 vs $4 mil they have spent on their vacation.
    My mother-in-law is a fixed-income retiree and a Democrat but this issue makes her livid.

  25. As the current tax year ends and business and or individuuals as the President & Mrs. Obama consider where to give their next donation for the upcoming year, i would like them to consider contributing to this worthwhile tax exempt organization in West Virginia.
    We have engaged in many diverse and educational projects with a number of people from different backgrounds that i believe would interest the President and Mrs. Obama and many others. I hope to garner their support

  26. Obama paraded as a minimalist and frugal before his election .
    Only to be more Gluteus , Ostentatious and tax payer money blower than any president ever .
    His Words , Deeds, behavior and actions have No commonality what so ever !
    Other than he has proved beyond a shadow of doubt . He is a total Professional lier making even Willy Clinton look like a Saint … Almost ..

  27. I am so tired of the Obama spam campaign. The never ending Emails begging for $3.00 is an embarrassment. Please stop already or at least allow me to unsubscribe with a single click.

  28. Really…really!!! The Obama’s use the Presidency as a reason to not only destroy this Nation with their liberal-socialist campaign but to also use tax payer funds to vacation as often as they want. These people are amazingly arrogant!

  29. The Bummers on Va-Ca, how novel. Ofcourse you deserve it; you work so hard screwing everybody else out of their money. I hope you choke on your deep fried pork rinds. We just love the $2.000 K-Mart sun dress Moochelle and we’d be pleased to send $3.00 for Barry’s campaign when Hell freezes over.
    Here’s wishing the ParasitesOTUS absolutely nothing.
