This President pays for lodging, travel, and other personal expenses for family vacations just like they all have since that became the law. The government pays for security the same as it always has under every President. To act like there's something unusual going on here just shows how blindly partisan and stunningly ignorant of history you are.
Obama has been on a depraved personal spending spree throughout the presidency, but never a critical word is uttered by his big media propaganda arm.
The worse the economy has gotten, the more obscene Obama and Michelle's spending has gotten.
Where is the outcry?
I, for one, as an overtaxed American, am sick of it.
It kicked off as early as his inauguration.
Obama spent an obscene 150 million dollars on his inauguration.
The media rejoiced in his decadence.
Bush, OTOH, was raked over the coals for spending a fraction of what Obama spent on his inauguration.
And Obama did it fresh off the economic crisis that shook the nation and catapulted him to the presidency.
Where was the outrage?
That was just the kickoff to a four-year spending spree never seen before in the presidential annals of America.
$100 kobe steaks, 20 million vacation home rental on Martha's Vineyard,$100,000 dinner dates with Michelle, and her obscene wardrobe expenses (and how the media went after Sarah Palin for her rather pedestrian campaign wardrobe), and Michelle's $10m in public money on her vacations:
top-shelf vodka and five-star hotels,
not to mention Michelle jetting off to Hawaii with the kids for a 17-day vacation before the President can leave.
And then there are his hundreds of golf games....
Taxpayers footed the million-dollar bill for Obama's 13 year-old daughter, Malia, along with 12 of her BFFs to party on spring break in Mexico.
Media silence at a time when Americans are struggling under Obama's 15-trillion-dollar deficit.
To act like there's something unusual going on here just shows how blindly partisan and stunningly ignorant of history you are.
