I believe the point 333 is trying to make is, like it or not we have a ruling class. The same rules don't seem to apply to them that apply to us peons. 10 Million on vacations is retarded, considering what exactly does the first lady do that warrants that. Well nothing other than her husband happened to get elected POTUS.

YOU can take your class warfare BS and move on. I don't begrudge anyone for being wealthy, and when it comes right down to it the federal government taxes income, not wealth. Why do you think Buffet gets up their talking about tax me, because his taxable income is nothing compared to his wealth which doesn't get taxed.

Class warfare is not BS

Rich have been waging it for years and admit as much

It's our problem that we let them do it and our problem that we pretend it doesn't exist

Leadership, like in all areas, starts at the top.   

Obama can't credibly claim we have to be a nation of shared sacrifice while his looter wife acts like this. 

Same as Bush being mocked for telling people to go shopping after 9/11. 


Same crappola.

Yes - but there is a reason why the POTUS gets so much power and attention. 

All of the power of the Executive Branch is concentrated in him, while the power of the congress is disbursed over 535 people.   

The power of one in the POTUS office to convince, lead, and set an example for others is far easier and noticable than a lowley congressman.

speaking of the House, has the Republican led House produced any legislation to help the economy, the middle or lower class or anything to help create jobs?

They've been there 7 months now, surely they must have done something in those areas

Yes - they passed repeal of ObamaCare, passed the Ryan Budget, and passed cut cap and balance, both of which would have retained our AAA rating.

Expensive massages, top shelf vodka and five-star hotels: First Lady accused of spending $10m in public money on vacations

By Tamara Abraham

Last updated at 4:45 PM on 24th August 2011


________________________ ________________________ _________________


The Obamas' summer break in Martha's Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets.

But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances.

White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers' money on vacations alone in the past year.

 Expensive taste: Michelle Obama, pictured yesterday in Massachusetts, has been accused of spending $10m of public money on vacations

Branding her 'disgusting' and 'a vacation junkie', they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.

The 'top source' told the National Enquirer: 'It's disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.

Nothing like a world of porn kings and gangsters to take your mind off things... Obama gets stuck into his holiday reading amidst global turmoil

'When it's all added up, she's spent more than $10million in taxpayers' money on her vacations.'

The First Lady is believed to have taken 42 days of holiday in the past year, including a $375,000 break in

Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel.

And the first family's nine-day stay in Martha's Vineyard is also proving costly, with rental of the Blue
Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week.

 His and her jets: The President and his wife, who are spending nine days on Martha's Vineyard, have come under fire for travelling on separate planes

The source continued: 'Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.

'The vacations are totally Michelle's idea. She's like a junkie. She can't schedule enough getaways, and she lives from one to the next - all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans.'

While the President and his wife do pay for some of their personal expenses from their own pocket, the website whitehousedossier.com says that the amount paid by the couple is 'dwarfed by the overall cost to the public'.

The magazine also reported that Mrs Obama, whose fashion choices are widely followed, had been going on 'wild shopping sprees', much to the distress of her husband, who, its sources reveal, is 'absolutely furious' at his wife's 'out-of-control spending'.

 Travelling in style: Mrs Obama at Granada Cathedral during her $375,000 trip to Spain in August last year

The President has already come under fire this week over his decision to take a family vacation while millions of Americans are out of work and countless more are financially strapped.

But the situation sparked further anger after he and his wife elected to fly separately to the Massachusetts retreat - despite travelling on the same day.

Mr Obama left the White House aboard Marine One on his way to Andrews Air Force base to hitch a lift aboard Air Force One - along with First Dog Bo.

After landing at Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station, he then took a final helicopter to his holiday destination to complete the remarkable 500-mile journey.

His wife and daughters, who arrived just four hours earlier, were also travelling from Washington, but took a specially designed military aircraft.

They would also have had their own motorcade from the airport to the vacation residence.

Speechless. 


I seriously doubt that the Obama's vacation is running 10 million dollars and the fact that there is no reliable source of information makes me call this story bullshit. 

Not only that, there's no such thing as a presidential vacation.  The trips are mainly for the family itself.  The president always travels with the office in tow and has been obviously working during the trip.

As far as the use of Air Force One is concerned, if you've ever been on the plane, you will know that its basically a flying office.

Pretty disgusting given the mile-long lines of people looking for any job they can get in Atlanta. Not surprising that the Dems on this board, you know, those who are supposedly all about the little man, are sitting here and justifying this woman's rampant spending on the taxpayer dole.

Well, she isn't spending any money on the taxpayer's dole because the First Lady does not get a salary at all.  The President of the United States gets 400k a year salary, 100k travel account, 50k expense account, and a 19k entertainment account.  In addition, he gets use of the Presidential car, the two planes, and the helecopter, not to mention security for the immediate family.  That's it...anything else comes out of his pocket.  There isn't a bottomless pit for spending money.

Complain about it all you want but every other POTUS has gotten the same things.

Let s for the sake of argument assume the POTUS spent all his 400K on vacations plus the travel and entertainment allowances for 3 years. That still leaves about 8.2 million unaccounted for.

Who exactly got to me? Unlike you I don't site around and cry about those who have done well for themselves, I use it as a means to work harder to accomplish more. That way I can provide for my family, through my hard work, and don't have to DEPEND on handouts.
