The Obamas were known for their frequent vacations while in office, to places like Hawaii and the French Riviera. Since leaving office, they've seemingly spent most of their time on vacation, and not at the Motel 6 near Disneyworld, but at places like Marlon Brando's island in the South Pacific, Richard Branson's private island in the British Virgin Islands (which costs $80,000/night), and a privately-owned medival Italian village.

Obamas under fire from the left for never ending, sizzling ultra-luxury vacations

Where did all this money come from? Obama came from a middle-class background. He started as a "community organizer", and after graduating from law school was a professor for a time, before he entered politics. Michelle, from what I can gather from her Wikipedia page, came from a modest background, and was a lawyer for a time before Barak entered politics. I'm sure they've done alright for themselves financially, but I don't see how they can afford to be living what appears to be the life of a billionaire playboy/playgirl. Am I missing something significant, or should we be looking for sources of unreported income with the Obamas?

Obama toed the line for the globalists and other private interest groups... for that, you get rewarded handsomely.

When you do as you're told and you further the agendas of elite powerbrokers, you can easily collect on those favors without raising any eyebrows. Just like the Clintons or the Bushes ... you do as you're told and you'll get those deposits right into your account!

Boy you sure weren't paying much attention over the last decade, were ya?

Law professor - $85,000 a year
Public office - $3.7 million over several years
Book deals - over 14 million dollars

There's been entire articles written about how he made his money, and that's not even getting into speaker's fees and whatnot.
Forbes even has a neat little chart for you

Well 80K a night if you spend a few weeks is a decent chunk of a million. IF that's what you're doing daily, for a year, in just 100 days you already spent 8 Million, and if that night is per person and it's a family a fair, in a month or two that book deal is consumed..

That presumes that Obama is paying full price for any of these trips, if he's paying at all. At least two or three of his "excursions" have been to property owned by buddies of his. I can't imagine they charged Barry full retail.

Reagan is still worth 13-25 million.

How do you think these families get all that precious money?

Here let me google that for you.

lmgtfy.com...

Very easy to find out how he earned his wealth actually.

OBTW famous people get to stay at some of those places for free in exchange for speeches, diners or meet and greets.

A little research goes a long way.

When will this obsession with Obama stop. It's almost as if this anticult is so addicted to a masturbatory fetish centered on Obama, will somehow enhance the conservative agenda.

I doubt the man is paying for much right now. I mean, he is friggin Obama. It's worth the PR for ANY business to comp the family.

But, how the hell do you make 3.7mill in just, what 10yrs in public office??

Man, I'm in the wrong field.

Evil pays....and keeps on paying. He's getting paid for his role in doing exactly what he was told as president and after by TPTB and he likes it just fine. He knows he has no country or morality to spoil his soul.

And he will keep on spewing and smiling til he dies-and they'll decide when that will be. Until then-he's a useful tool.

Simple, they are freeloaders and always have been. I'll bet there are some outstanding college loans that are hidden.
