Michelle Obama Insisted on $4 Million Trip to Hawaii When Barack Wanted Local Vacation

In the White House Weekly Address President Obama and the First Lady urged Americans to give back.

Meanwhile, they’ll be in Hawaii on another $4 million vacation.

After blowing $10 million on vacations this year, Michelle Obama insisted the First Family take another $4 million trip to Hawaii. Michelle flew out early.
The Daily Mail reported:

Michelle Obama insisted on a pricey holiday to Hawaii when her husband would have rather gone to a presidential retreat, according to reports.

She allegedly wanted the taxpayer-funded $4million trip when Barack Obama sought instead to make the short trip to Camp David in Maryland.

Political sources told the National Enquirer that the 47-year-old’s spending is rocketing and she even went on a shopping spree before the Hawaii trip.

‘The President’s advisers have told him that Michelle’s spending has spiralled “completely out of control”,’ one source told the National Enquirer.

‘Barack read his wife the riot act, but his words fell on deaf ears. Michelle said there was “no way” she was going to disappoint her daughters.’

Then again, this should surprise no one. Michelle Obama told us her top priority is Michelle Obama.

    Michelle Obama can see the handwriting on the wall and is going to get every last cent out of the taxpayers while she can. This is a one term presidency and the sooner it’s over the better off the country will be.

    Her top priority is herself. She said so.

    I vividly remember the screaming outrage voiced by the anti-American lefties over the spending habits of Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush. They couldn’t buy sweat socks without lefty cries of “imperialist,” and “elitist.”

    All the first caboose is doing is “stickin’ it ta da man.” “Da man” is anyone who actually WORKS for a living. The scum-in-chief is livin’ large on my dime. The obamas are a complete disgrace!

    Why the hell don’t Moochelle and old Tuxedo Barry “give back” some of the cost to the taxpayers of the high livin’ they have just been sucking up–like the” Klumps” at an all you can eat–since they occupied the White House?

    You know, things like Wagyu beef steaks flown in at $125 per pound, wine served at their more than 200 White House dinners, events, entertainments, relaxations, and concerts that are routinely over $100 per bottle, King Putt’s hundred or so golf outings, Air Force One at $185,000 per hour, and these grifters (and sometimes their posse as well) repeated vacations to Hawaii, Martha’s Vinyard, to Marbella in Spain, to Africa, etc. etc.

    I notice they somehow never make it to Haiti or to Calcutta to check out the situation there, or to the slums of Mexico City, or similar less upscale, and “fun” places.

    Leave my Michelle alone! The poor girl is so lonely, with Mr. “I’m going putting with my boyfr…er… golf buddy” leaving her untouched since the kids got conceived. It’s natural to understand she needs a villa large enough for quiet rendezvous with her favorite secret service detail and even a few days head start to get things heated up.

    It’s not her fault if she’s too much woman for you teabaggers.

    The Obama’s make the Clintons look like pikers when it comes to enjoying the “perks” of the White House on the taxpayer’s dime.

    This “George Jefferson movin’ on up” mentality is the epitome of arrogance and a total disregard for the taxpayer’s dollars they are supposed to be good stewards of. What a shame their daughters can’t go on another taxpayer funded vacation. How many families take even one good vacation a year let alone dozens?

    It’s too bad journalism died during the last election. Maybe a concerned media would shame them into taking a more modest vacation and a lot less frequently. Instead, we’ve inherited a Goebellsesque propaganda machine that would make authoritarian governments proud.

    Their travels not only inconvenience the secret service but there is a contingent of staffers and military personnel that must travel with them depriving them of a nice Christmas with their families. It it was necessary, so be it, but it’s not. The Obama’s have choices and usually those choices involve spending as much of the taxpayer’s money as they can. Now we know why they are so keen on the redistribution of wealth mantra.

  • Druid

    I find it quite credible that Mooo-chelle demanded the Hawaii trip.

    Barrack spent a few years of his life there, as have I, and one thing I will say about the state – it’s a great place to live, but I would not want to visit. (all the really cool things to do are day long activities… and they are hit or miss)

    Michelle is the one fired up to get there – must be a game show trash thing, only one thing better than A New Car!!!, it is, A Trip To Hawaii!!!

    Why don’t they just go to the Virgin Islands…

  • StrangernFiction

    Mooch can’t believe Americans would be dumb enough to reelect this reject, so she’s going full grifter. Problem is, Americans may well be just that dumb. Hell, Republicans aren’t smart enough to avoid a candidate who can’t campaign against Obama’s signature socialist acheivement.

  • iconoclast

    I listened to Michelle speak on some lefty LA radio station during the election. In the interview, she agreed with the sentiment “it is our turn now”, meaning that it was the Black’s turn to have power. And, now that she has power, we can see what she wanted to do with it–abuse it. Just as she did in Chicago.

    What an embarrassing picture.

    Calculate all their vacations and it must be in the Millions.


    ‘The President’s advisers have told him that Michelle’s spending has spiralled “completely out of control”,’ one source told the National Enquirer.

    ‘Barack read his wife the riot act, but his words fell on deaf ears. Michelle said there was “no way” she was going to disappoint her daughters.’

    Some say they have taken less vacations then Bush. But the money they are spending has to be more than any other president. Undoubtedly they are have fun and living the high life, yet in this time it is another real embarrassment.

    Michelle snaps the whip and Obama comes running. Cliche but she does wear the pants in that family.

    Her girls aren’t doing without in any respect of the word.

  • tc

    read his wife the riot act??? How does that sound in his house? “uhhhhh, yes, dear, what ever you wish dear….”

  • Ahhhh, bull. Obama wanted it, and he’s looking for a fall guy to blame now that he sees people are outraged. Except now he looks wasteful and pathetic.

  • Patty

    Are these the same advisers who work with Soros, SEIU, Acorn, Ayers, Wright.

    Or are they the advisers to Dodd and Frank.

    Seems to me with all the Czars and Axelrod, Holder, I just can’t hear Obama scolding Michelle too as he has scolded Congress and American people with his awful Obama care.

    Really, all the spending 15 trillion in debt. He alone has spend 4 trillion. He seems to be on this more than the lives that were lost from Fast and Furious. And the Solyndra, why doesn’t he blame his Target shopping wife. Really, so unbelievable these two phonies.

    Right. We must not disappoint the kiddies by spending millions of tax-payer’s money so they can have “fun”.

    Come on, The National Enquirer? Sure, these two are marxists who relate to one another dialectically. But marxist propaganda has no problem creating the undermining-of-authority-wife -image to a nearly collapsed God and family America ready and willing to model their contrived behavior. This is Goebels territory, as much as there may be truth to the story.

  • Questionman

    I knew I would find all those hate filled tea baggers hovering like chicken hawks on this page. Totally pathetic they trash their president like they do. How Un-American and Unpatriotic can you get. Hopefully when Obama takes the election next year you will all go back to your respective communist nations.

    Remind me again how you people aren’t racist…..wait, you cant. It’s out of the bag, you are racist, bigoted Un-American haters.

    President Obama was born in Hawaii. While his mother died not all that long ago, he still has family in Hawaii.

    Have you NEVER traveled home to be with your family on Christmas?

    Should Malia and Sasha be forced not to see their cousins for at least four years because their father is the President of the United States? Or should they be forced to decide whether to spend Christmas with their father OR (not both) their aunts, uncles and cousins?

    What ever you may thing of President Obama’s policies (and I disagree with several), being President of the United States is an incredibly stressful job. Just as anybody else in this country (heck, in the world) needs a vacation sometimes to re-charge their batteries, getting elected President doesn’t change that. Studies have shown that people that can get away for a while come back to their jobs refreshed and actually do their jobs better when they come back.

    The big difference, of course, is that the vast majority of people don’t have to take their job with them on vacation. The President of the United States does.

    EVERY president travels by special accommodation, whether by special presidential train, or military aircraft, or Air Force One, for security reasons. The current President of the United States can’t just go buy coach tickets on Jet Blue for his family, the staff he needs to take with him for daily briefings, and himself. Let’s not forget that, even though the “cold war” is over, the President still always travels with a “football” (the briefcase with nuclear codes in it). You really want that tucked under the seat in front on a commercial flight?

    When any President travels for a personal vacation (even though he has to take his job with him), he pays for all personal expenses out of his own pocket. No, he doesn’t have to pay for the jet fuel to fly Air Force One. That’s not a personal expense. (See above paragraph.)

    Excuses for an ignorant, bigoted, illiterate. You are a disgrace to this country.

  • squeaky

    “again how you people aren’t racist…..wait, you cant. It’s out of the bag, you are racist, bigoted Un-American haters.” so overplayed to the point of making it insignificant. what’s out of the bag is that one group doesn’t hold the monopoly on bad behavior. the secrets from behind closed doors.

    [[Advocates of LIHEAP had hoped Congress would fund the program at its 2010 level of $5.1 billion; it was funded at $4.7 billion for 2011, an amount that several governors urged Congress to maintain for this year. President Obama’s budget proposal would have cut LIHEAP funding by nearly 50 percent to $2.6 billion, so the congressional figure came down somewhere in the middle. ]] and a happy new year….fa-la-la and all. i’m sure msm will be focusing on this as being a concressional issue [rep controlled] come election time and having a memory lapse to the “rest of the story” as paul harvey would say…..

    I vividly remember leftists shrieking over Nancy Reagan’s expensive new dishes for the White House. Now that a Leftist has spent easily FIFTY TIMES that amount on HERSELF, (clothes, trips, food, jewelry) they are silent. These two are trashy. They tell us to stick it and deal with the unemployment and taxes as they run off on one vacation after another. This IS, after all, the same b**$% who rolled her eyes in disgust at the Veteran’s Day flag memorial. Moochelle, you’ve earned that nickname!
