Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: Living in a Tax Loophole? (entourage filled a luxury resort hotel in Spain)
Posted on 11/14/2012 6:40:00 PM PST by drewh
WASHINGTON, D.C., November 13, 2012 ― The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is not an elected official. The title doesn't come with a paycheck. Michelle Obama, however, has turned it into an exercise in imperial excess, spending taxpayers' dollars as though the Treasury were her cookie jar.
First Ladies since Dolly Madison (if not Martha Washington) have made the news and have had a presence around their president-husbands. Still, Michelle Obama has taken being First Lady to depths never before achieved, even by the Hillary Clinton.
Now, remember: Even if shes campaigning (and shes always campaigning), the taxpayers arent in any way obligated to pay for her trips.
Just to tally up some of her trips, I did a quick Google search. Among some 16 official vacation trips in the first three years of her reign (a number mentioned in a FOIA request filed by Judicial Watch and ignored by the White House) that sometimes included family days together, Michelle has been on notorious trips to Aspen (CO), Mexico, South Africa, Botswana, and all over Europe and the US. Her entourage filled a luxury resort hotel in Spain, she took her daughters to the Harry Potter set in England for Malia's birthday (complete with birthday party with cast and crew), and unwilling to wait for her husband to settle some affairs of state, she took a separate plane to Martha's Vineyard to get a few hour head start on her vacation.
She also took a separate flight to Hawaii for Christmas last year. She obviously doesn't like waiting around for her husband.
Shes a millionaire in her own right, and shes doing all this on taxpayer money!

And now we get 4 more years of this theft.
I can’t stand this woman and it makes me SICK that we share a first name!
Or just of her peeps that voted for her love of her life (yuck)...
I know how you feel, Chewie.
Of course they reelected him because it doesn't apply to them.
Americans knew all of this before the election and they chose for her to be able to continue with it.
Why complain? It won’t stop her or him, and he enjoys her not being around, I would too if she were my wife.
But, but, her travels are critical!
As the MSM has declared her the most beautiful woman in the world; with fashion sense bar none; with her well tailored matching ensembles, even including finely defined panty line; and the ability of having hair that can go from nappy to coif in a short afternoon, she is the essence of a perfectly wonderful American, now that she proud of being one!
The Wookster is living in a gangster paradise..
I have to share my birthday with that trashasaurus!
General William ‘Kip’ Ward demoted for lavish travel, spending
WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has demoted the former head of U.S. Africa Command who was accused of spending thousands of dollars on lavish travel and other unauthorized expenses, a senior U.S. official said Tuesday.
Panetta stripped Gen. William “Kip” Ward of a star, which means that he will now retire as a three-star lieutenant general despite arguments from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff against the demotion. Ward also has been ordered also repay the government $82,000.
I always rejected the “strategy” of refusing to vote for any “imperfect” candidate, with a view to “teaching the masses a lesson.” It never seemed it was worth the price—destruction of wealth, surrender to enemies, millions more dead babies, etc.
But now that we’ve been given that future anyway, I say, let the masses learn what it means to elect (through vote fraud) an illegal-alien Marxist Muslim Brother. Spend, Moochelle, Spend! I want people dying in the gutters in Cleveland and Philadelphia—from starvation, or a brick to the head, or a Muslim dirty bomb—to call out in vain for help from their god Obama, vacationing with his Empress Consort Moochelle on George Soros’s yacht in the Mediterranean.
I just spit out my water! LOL
->>..... is living in a gangster paradise..
That says it perfectly. Great and to the point. I have to say this to my friends. Give you the credit.
Sounds good to me!
