I'll take a guess......,Michelle gone so........Where's Reggie Love "the body man"?
I think their handlers must live in that area so they go there to pay their VIC or perhaps collect it.

Too many eyes and ears in the White House, everything is logged and tracked. Go to Martha's Vineyard and you can hand select your surrounding team that travels with you. You make a firewall between you and your extended staff. This is how you can conduct secret dealings and other things you don't want made public.

If the last name weren't Obama would anyone care at all what the First Lady does, seriously?
I mean are there really people out there like, "OMG
the unelected, non-office holding wife of the president is traveling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's my money!!!!!!!!!!!"

Apparently there are...Those people should do some research and see what previous president's and their families did for vacation(s). I only have a finite amount of outrage and this thing isn't even registering. Just being honest.

My comments about Michelle taking a vacation have nothing whatsoever to do with my "faith" in US government. If you have to associate the two, it shows how weak your argument is.

They ARE paying for their own vacation.

What petty, BS arguments you all have. :shk:

They only pay their accommodations and meals. WE pay their travel and the army of SS agents that guard them. As well as the accommodations and meals for that army. Plus travel back and forth, as members of that army are rotated through.

I'm sure someone will present the bill to the public eye by the end of summer. Then we'll see just how much they DIDN'T pay for their own vacation.

It's been proven often in the past that every time a President and/or family goes on vacation, it costs the taxpayers millions. Taking several vaca's a year adds up. This family has abused that privilege.

Who cares what she does? Really?

I couldn't care less when Laura Bush vacationed either, we did not elect either of them to office. What I did care about though is how many days George W vacationed. The pres who vacationed the most in history of presidency... very conveniently forgotten.

If Obama starts getting close to those numbers, I'll start shaking my fist.

Calls to several Presidential libraries reveal that President Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020 days — than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other President in history.

President Bush spent 32% of his presidency on vacation.

That's 3 years out of 8.

President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas and Ronald Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch in California.

Wanna shut Obama haters up..bring in facts...
Show the Obama family are not the most vacationed family of the presidents.

Of course to counter this..they will say some bull about how the other presidents weren't that busy..therefore were allowed to take the time off..

This entire thread is full of spectacularly ignorant people who have never bothered to even learn the difference between 'there' and 'their' and yet think they know what's wrong with the government; specifically a first lady who is taking more vacations than they themselves get.

Do any of you realize that life in D.C. is a fishbowl? That perhaps they want some time with their children that is somewhat normal? That neither of the Obamas was thrilled with the idea of life in the White House with constant security coverage, thousands of death threats a day against both themselves and their children, more thousands of problems that will never be fixed, etc?

If you think you can do a better job and take fewer vacations, please feel free to run for office.

In the meanwhile, try learning basic English grammar skills and do enough reading to realize the President doesn't 'run' anything, there's powers over him that are really running the show. They masquerade as corporate interests but they long ago bought out Congress and the rest of the executive branch.

This Rush Limbaugh-Bill O'Reilly style of commenting is beneath all of you, or at least should be. Why not spend some time lamenting the amount of money THOSE pundits make, or Rush's suspicious vacations to the Dominican Republic carrying Viagra with someone else's name on the bottle?

Mods, please shut down this thread. It makes ATS'ers look like idiots.

They DO NOT pay for the vacations they take... EVER!
AF One now costs over $180,000 per flight hour, that is just for one of the 2 that fly when ever POTUS flys.
This does not count the C-17 Globe Master to haul his car and SS cars and security teams.

The total cost is upwards of $350,000 per flight hour.
Trip to his so called place of birth... $4 mill.

How many vacations do they take per year? I'll let you look that up.

He has not help this country but instead he is destroying it every day.... sad but the moochers love him as he gives them thier check every month for not doing squat.

I could give a rats @ss what MooShell does... just not on my dime.
Vacay once a year is fine but 3 times and it is still may... come on...

Ok just looked it up.
Total : 19 vacations in 4 years 5 months.... REALLY ??

If you cant afford to go on your own dime then do what the rest of us do.... STAY HOME !

His HI vacation cost the taxpayers $18 mill "he had to fly back twice"

Yet he laid off how many people in order to save money....LMAO.

This guy is a joke !

Maybe marital problems...the word extended seems like wishes she could get a divorce and not come back.

Reportedly: He doesn't really enjoy swinging that way . . . and has a couple of staff members on stand by . . . or kneel by . . . to service his needs and preferences. It was kind of a reversal of the Clintons, in a manner of speaking.

Sometimes I wonder if there are many couples at such levels . . . who have more than a business relationship.

Then there's the issue of O's being set up to be the scapegoat for doing so energetically what he was ordered to do--destroy the USA.

Given that . . . I don't blame him or the wife and kids for playing as much as they can get away with. Who knows when the big knife will come crashing down on their heads.

But then there's that $38 million Hawaiian retirement estate they've given him. So, evidently he expects to be around in some tangible form.

Will Michelle and kids THEN


Perhaps time will tell.

Perhaps with their 15 min of fame over . . . it won't be so exciting to vacation on their own dime so much any more.

I guess most of the replys to this thread are mixed emotions

1. Most believe let them go on vacation

2. Other Presidents have gone on more Vacations than the Obamas

3. He has worked so hard why not?

4 Your Jeaolous of him

I guess the most things that bother me about them going on vacation are the following and they are not in any order.

1. Country is in a finacialy down fall, how much debt does each person own of the US DEFICET?

2. Whats wrong with Camp David?

3. How many of you have seen an improvement in your quality of life?

4. How many of you seen an increase in every day things like, Gas, Food and Insurance?

5. How many of you have taken a 5 Star Vacation anywhere?

6. How many of you pay Taxes and Bitch about how much is taken out of your paycheck

7. How many people have been laid off by the goverment becasue they could not agree on a budget?

8. Home many of you have done something tha may effect your familys lively hood?

9. What has the govement done for you in the last 4 1/2 years to make life easier for you or your job?

10. Who repeps the benifits of crocked politicians?

I guess what I have been saying all along is the President and family have options to go on vacations what is Wrong with CAMP DAVID?

Why are we paying for Micheles Vacation, she is nothing except a wide load that cuts the school lunches that the kids don't want to eat, What has she done for the US people but put her 2 cents in and cause more problems than she is worth.

Why are we paying for any of this, my wife dont' get vacation days just because of who I am and I am sure my company would not flip the bill for her.

Really folks why are we allowing this to continue, I am tired of paying for there outraguous vacations, in fact the current administration has discrepected the Militray every chance it could and that offends me.

As a radio annocer once said and I quote " Wake up America"

I just got home from work... now im thinking hmm how would my work compare to Michelle Obamas work.

And I want a vacation I can only imagine that she wants a vacation too.

AND i know what your gonna say. she works in a position that is so important especially at times like this and that theres no time for vacations...... no life is stressful and unless we step back and see the good sides of life we will become animals. I know i get cranky.

good things come from
good actions which are driven by
good emotions that are created from
good times

Obama Daughters are Michelle's 'Senior Staffers'

Michelle was caught cheating on her expense report. What a show of
arrogance! This information was obtained by Judicial Watch March, 2012. The
administration had to be sued to get this through the FREEDOM OF INFORMATION
ACT. Michelle Obama listed daughters as 'Senior Staffers' to justify her
expensive African vacation and safari. October 5, 2011, Judicial Watch
said the U.S. Air Force provided a C-32 ( a Boeing 757 ), modified by the
military for the purpose of flying big-wigs around the world, to fly the
First Lady and her entourage to and from Africa, at a cost of $424,142.

Another $928.44 was listed as 'bulk food' costs per meal for the 192 on
board meals for the 21 people who made the trip. Lobster ain't cheap when
you fly it around the world. The Obama daughters were listed on the manifest
as senior staff. 'This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family
to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business,' said
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. 'This junket wasted tax dollars and the
resources of our over extended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry
loose this information.' The nation is suffering with the economy
sputtering, the national debt soaring and Obama's economic rescue policies
not only failing, but actively making things worse.

Meanwhile, the First Lady justifies an expensive trip to Africa to take a vacation and safari
with her daughters by saying it's 'official business' and even going so far
as to list her children as staffers. The level of arrogance and dishonesty
on display here is nothing short of shocking. But, 'hope for change' - when?

It's a true story. Check out these links and read it for yourself:


Folks, if the truth gets out, you will have to be the one to pass the info
along to others. The major media outlets would NOT DARE say anything
negative about the poster child for diversity and Marxism! Can you imagine
what the liberal news media would say about a Republican pulling such a
stunt? Out and out lying! God save the nation from this administration of
the Obama-nation!

So typical!...of the past few decades worth of US Presidents at least. I mean realistically, most people realize the president doesn't really take "vacations", he just travels places, and occasionally gets some leisure time with his family. George W Bush, I believe, was the record-breaker for "vacations", but still, most people understand its not just kicking your feet up and saying, "nope! No calls, on vacation, pass it to Veep!" its just worm, albeit from a different location. Neither W, nor Obama had a whole lot in the way of "leisure time", and a round of golf with other world leaders, or officials within the US Gov or Military, is no less "doing work" than the business meeting over the back 9.

The fact that people criticize either of them for their so-called vacations is silly. As far as the cost, should they instead just tell thenpopulace, "by the way, should you ever choose to run for office, don't you dare take some time to get away from DC and all of its filth with your family while your children grow up! You must work, and only work!

As far as the cost...big deal? Cut the military budget 0.01%, and it would cover it. Or even lower the tax subsidies for the oil corps

IS her job so important? And if it is, how many times during this 'extended' vacation will she have to fly back to Washington to perform the duties of that important job?

Gotta love how liberals always go to the military budget and/or oil subsidies first. Talk about one track.

How 'bout we cut healthcare. That budget is higher than the military's. How about government pensions. It matches the military budget, and I'm sure government employees, having taken a healthy chunk of change from the American people their entire careers, wouldn't mind a small decrease.
