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. I guess Reggie will move back to the WH when FLOTUS leaves.
    This will put a smile on Baracks face. The Fla. excursion when Michelle went to Aspen was the last time I think he was with Reggie.
    Ain’t love grand.

  2. Hey moochele,better hurry up and take your tax payers vacations for soon your ole hubby will either resign(Please God),or be impeached….so live up mooch….

  3. I remember when Will Ferrel performed a skit on SNL of a first-time presidential winner George W. Bush and painfully exclaiming, “This is so hard!!!! It’s just so hard!”, referring, of course, to the job of being the President of the United States. It’s interesting that President Bush was subsequently so involved and steadfast and responsible; while this current president has demonstrated such a lazy and disinterested attitude – other than his fervor for seeking revenge and destruction on those who would cross him.

  4. It’s to give barry a chance to play with is boyfriends and to decide if it’s time to come out of the closet to ADMIT he’s gay.

  5. Why not take Barry? He’s proven to be chronically clueless when it comes to such matters as doing his job. As an added bonus, he might finally learn to throw a baseball and learn the name of some players on his supposedly favorite team.

  6. This PUBLIC-WHORE family has NO IDEA of the plight of the AMERICAN family. Their GREED at the PUBLIC TROUGH know NO BOUNDS. They are COMPLETELY IGNORANT to PUBLIC PERCEPTION and the ADDITIONAL DEBT they are pushing onto the AMERICAN TAXPAYER .

  7. tell that B’ move out and go back to Chicago..she nothing but a thief

  8. Michelle knows this is her last fling, so she’s gonna party hardy on the public dollar. What a relief it will be when this family of miserable leeches are gone.

  9. With all the major scandals erupting, this might be her last opportunity to take yet another elaborate expensive taxpayer-paid vacation.

  10. If the Mooch wants an island vacation this summer, she & the brats should go to Northernly Island, the former site of Meigs Airfield, in Chicago. It’s in a super location, can be well guarded without inconveniencing other people, has access to cultural hotspots and entertainment opportunities and is a close commute to their own, lovely home on the unique Southside of Chicago. And, there’s golf close by! Did I mention a former, fave bathhouse on the northside of the city?
    It would be a win-win for everybody, and hey, the Obamas might even pick up a fan or two.

  11. This is disgraceful on so many levels. It makes me sick. When will the American people wake up to this abomination of a presidency? How can they be so blind? It’s demonic, I tell you.

  12. I’m fairly sure this won’t be published, but perhaps we will be surprised…my comment…”SO WHAT!!” Michelle is NOT the president, yet she has been an activist as the first lady for many meaningful causes. She has done her share in speaking out and campaigning on children’s health issues, women’s issues and military families.
    Everything you listed that is going on in our country is NOT and was NOT issues that pertain to or even caused by her husbands administration.
    Are you so lacking on issues to attack President Obama with,that you now must try to find something, anything to drag the first lady into scandal?
    Would you suggest that ANY or ALL of congress and the house spouses and children should not vacation this year at all? Or the rest of America for that matter?
    Perhaps dig up all the expenses of ALL of congress and the house family and spouses vacation costs and let us know the total, and please do remember to separate the democrats from the republicans so we can compare separately expenditures for the parties we support.
    I’m sure we’d be in for a very RUDE awakening!

    • she may come across as an activist for Military Families, but in the end all it has produced is a nice background prop for when she needs to be in the spotlight. Can you name one issue she has promoted for military families that has made a change to the morale, welfare or recreation, other than visits and open house?

    • What a sad “justification” for the excesses of Michelle Obama. she is not to be attached to the scandals of the Administration of her husband, the POTUS? Yet, she has been advertized as the “guiding light behind his success”; the power behind the throne, if you will. And to pretend that the children are not part of the mix is to be blind to the times the Obamas have USED references to their daughters for fatuous political purposes.
      . They are the innocent victims of their parents personal greed,yes, but to presume that they can be minipulated into the excuse for lavish vacations is to further deny the pretence that “we are just like you”.
      It is hard to be betrayed, hard to accept having been led down a phoney path as we have been. But to perpetuate the myth, to ignore the obvious, and to continue to haplessly follow the path of corruption is be complicit with it. Their own “hometown” which they have described as full of their version of “Chicago virtues” is in shambles. A 9 year old boy has had the courage to condemn the closing of 40+ schools in this “value” centered city, using the disgusting excuse of “helping to reduce the millions of dollars of debt, poverty and crime”. Where is your goddess in that issue? Are these former playmates? These are the children she claims were “just like”.her. This young boy has been denied the opportunity to get out of the morass of cooruption through a good education. Pathetic platitudes from the Obamas don’t address the core issues.
      You have been duped, poor Anna. Don’t just run away like the child at play. Stand, face the issues, and you might have a productive awakening for yourself and the nation!!

  13. When the common folks (us) are looking for a way to survive after relying on Obama to make things better ( like he promised), they are taking another vacation and an extended vacation to boot.
    These clowns got to go.

  14. She and the girls are bailing before the ship hits the fan! The end of the Obama dictatorship may be coming to an end! I certainly hope so!

  15. There is a posh little resort in Leavenworth, Kansas I would like to recommend. Extended vacation? No problem. We’ll let you and your faux hubby have the Honeymoon Suite for 25 to life.

  16. Mouche would be serve us all by taking an extended vacation. I for one will chip in few buck to the Send the Mouche Packing 2013 campaign. A three year absence from DC seems about right.

  17. This President and his wife deciding they need an EXTENDED vacation? Gee, guess the SHORT vacations and 122 rounds of golf just isnt enough…
    This president is the worst in recent American history…

  18. So what…the progressive elites now control the government. We just have to get used to it. The control the whitehouse, congress and the courts. We will all grown poorer and have fewer liberties as time passes and the progressive elite will grow richer and tell us how to think, speak and view.. Cuba is their model…hey those folk down there survive (barely) but they all are equal.

  19. For about the second, maybe third, time in my life, words fail me to express the contempt that I feel for other human pretenders. The Obamas have exceeded expectations at how greedy and selfserving they can be. They have flouted and flaunted their exalted position at the expense of the people for whom they were elected to serve as first family. Instead, they have done two really egregious things: first,they have forever imprinted two perfectly good babies with their own lowlife satisfactions and the girls, probably just as well loved as mine have been, will never be allowed a normal life; and, second, they have also smeared the office of POTUSFLOTUS forever with their sanctimonious insinuations of their elevated status as a seat at the right hand of allah. They serve neither Americans or an American God Jehovah, on Whose tenets this nation rests its roots.

  20. It is crystal clear, to me, that Obama and his family are only living the life they could never afford or imagine. His lack of leadership basically makes it look like he’s been on a vacation ever since his innaguration, so, whether he’s there or not does it matter anyway? It’s obvious to me that he isn’t in charge of much because he has no clue about what’s going on around him, and again, whether he’s in Washington or not doesn’t matter.

    • You could look at his finances. The fact (i know you hate facts, but too bad) is the President had much much more money at his disposal before he was President. See he wrote books that people bought. You write lies on obscure website that no one would do more than laugh at.

  21. Well isn’t that special…Perhaps then we can work to get them out and keep them out if IRS targeting is showing us how they really feel. Have we had enough yet?

  22. Oh you poor slobs that voted for these people who go to work every day to pay for her trips, wine, lobster, etc when you have to load the family into the car and drive to the Holiday Inn at the beach or mountains !You are told to drive around in a lawnmover but these democrats like AlGore fly private jets and get into stretch limos waiting for them. Do you people have any self respect? HAve you learned your lesson yet? Will you please not make this mistake again- you are ruining our country.

  23. Yes, we know Keith. You don’t get vacations so you think no one should have them – and you really really hate that we had the nerve to elect a black President. Oh well. You can continue to scream in impotent pain.

  24. These comments do prove to serve two things, no one can hate like the rabid right and most of the hate of our elected President (twice) and his family is based entirely on racism. Thanks Keith, you do good work without even knowing it.

    • As expected, it all comes down to race! Ridiculous, because this is the most coddled First Family in the History of the Presidency, including JFK!! It is a mantra that becomes very tiresome, very soon! If The Obama’s can’t take the heat, they should get out of the kitchen!!

  25. Yeah Michelle! The sh*t is about to hit the fan, so by all means climb aboard AF1 and stretch your overall vacation time once again! The most “vacationed” lst Lady in history!!

  26. Moochelle, do the country a favor and take Bozo with you. It’s obvious he is simply a stuffed shirt parading around as the POTUS while knowing nothing about what his administration is doing. What an absolute joke of a leader.

  27. If Obama had known before that scandals would send the wife away for weeks at a time he might have invaded New Jersey 2 years ago.

  28. Wow, I didn’t know people were this dumb and ignorant. The title said Michelle goign on vacation. When did it say she was running the country. And by the way, all presidents before them took vacation. Sorry that we have a black man in office and yall are losing your minds. I thought Bush, Bush, Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Reagan took vacations as well. This job requires it for all of the stress they deal with. Now before all you tin foil hat wearing haters come out to bash people, check out who took the most vacations… Sure wasn’t Obama, and no I did not vote for him, but I am tired of all the Lemmings that are bashing him.

    • So why is SHE going on vacation on the tax-payer dime……she has no job? Presidents certainly are entitled to time off because of the stress of their jobs….this lady has no job yet is continually using tax payer money to jet off on vacation

  29. Maybe Michelle can invite several Moore OKA familiys to vacation with her on Marthas’ Vinryard. They could use it ..unlike her..

  30. I wonder how many of the shooting victims from Chicago they plan to bring to the island. Can’t wait for that optic. 41% unemployment in the black community for young people and the great black hope deserts them again. What have these people done to deserve this fate??
