I know I’m pissed off! Anger mounts over Michelle Obama’s $80K a day Spanish vacation with forty friends

I had to do it! pic update from savage!

This could end up costing $500K, and of course us serfs are paying for it. And, as usual, we don’t hear a peep from the mainstream Obama worshipping media about this insulting vacation with 40 of her “friends”.

How many of you could name ten, much less forty friends, that you have? Forty friends? Bullshit!

This is political payback, pure and simple, at our expense.

But since the state-controlled media ignores it, we have to read about this from London’s Daily Mail website. This won’t surprise you, but the New York Slimes is actually defending her.

And it seems that the only ones who seem to be concerned are bloggers like us.

Of course, many more average Americans would be disgusted by it IF THEY KNEW ABOUT IT, but that would require the lib swine in the mainstream media to actually do their damn jobs, rather than being propaganda ministers for this crooked and totally incompetent administration.

Michelle Obama today faced a fresh wave of attacks over her lavish break in Spain with 40 friends which has cost U.S. taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds.

Break? Give me an F**kin’ BREAK!!! When most people take a break, they go get a coke, maybe go to the bathroom, and take off 15 minutes before returning to their job.

They don’t take a trip to Spain with forty “friends” for a week or so, while staying at one of the most lavish hotels in the world, that they have no intention of paying for, regardless of what they claim.

This America-hating POS, like her incompetent worthless America-hating POS husband, has never earned a dime she has been paid and never had an actual job in her life, so she has no idea what it means to “work”.

Yet she hates the country that made this ignorant POS and her equally ignorant husband Harvard “educated”, because of affirmative action, and extremely wealthy.

As an aside, anyone else ever notice it’s always the libturds, who claim to represent the “workers”, as they derogatorily call them, while pretending to admire them, that have never done an honest day’s work in their pathetic lives? Hello, Kennedys!

The First Lady has been lambasted for her extravagance at a time when the economy is still struggling. One blogger went so far as to brand her a modern-day Marie Antoinette.

The exact cost of the trip is unclear as Mrs Obama, 46, and her friends are footing personal expenses – including accommodation at Marbella’s five-star Hotel Villa Padierna – themselves.

And if you believe that, as my wise Father said, you believe in the Easter bunny. I want to see the canceled checks from these libturd dirtbags. No wait, money orders. If they spend their money like they spend ours, their checks would most likely bounce.

But the taxpayer will have to pick up the tab for the First Lady’s 68-strong security detail, her personal staff – and the use of presidential jet Air Force Two. The cost of accommodating the secret service team runs at around £172 each a day which amounts to nearly £60,000 for the length of the summer break.

Use of Air Force Two, the Air Force version of a 757, comes in at £91,900 for the round trip. This does not include time on the ground.

The American public will also cover the cost of the only official part of the holiday, a visit to the Spanish royal family on the island of Majorca.

A conservative estimate puts the total amount at around £150,000.

And the Daily Mail points out the numerous vacations these scumbags (after all the vacations these pieces of shit have already taken this year, including four in July alone) have coming up for the rest of the summer-

Back in the U.S., anger was mounting – especially as it has emerged the First Lady will have enjoyed eight holidays by the end of the summer.

These include a trip to Los Angeles in June, a visit to the Florida’s oil-hit Gulf Coast next weekend and a ten-day trip to Martha’s Vineyard later this month.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked at a briefing if there were any concerns about how the visit was being viewed by the public.

‘The First Lady is on a private trip,’ he said. ‘She is a private citizen and is the mother of a daughter on a private trip. I think I’d leave it at that.’

Hey Gibbs, you ignorant asshole, she’ll be a private citizen when we kick her and her incompetent America-hating husband out of the White House in 2012. Until then, we’re paying HER bills, and paying for her staff of THIRTY, so don’t give me or any of us this “private citizen” bullshit. No other first lady’s staff consisted or more than five people, which is yet more proof that these detestable scumbags think they’re royalty.

Yesterday New York Daily News columnist and blogger Andrea Tantaros likened the President’s wife to French queen Marie Antoinette, who was famously extravagant with her spending.

Tantaros wrote: ‘To be clear, what the Obamas do with their money is one thing; what they do with ours is another. Transporting and housing the estimated 70 Secret Service agents who will flank the material girl will cost the taxpayers a pretty penny.’

She accused the Obamas of hypocrisy for preaching the values of sacrifice and austerity to Americans while seemingly refusing to heed their own advice.

She said: ‘Instead, Michelle Obama seems more like a modern-day Marie Antoinette… than an average mother of two.’

She added: ‘I don’t begrudge anyone rest and relaxation when they work hard. We all need downtime – the First Family included.

‘It’s the extravagance of Michelle Obama’s trip and glitzy destination contrasted with President Obama’s demonisation of the rich that smacks of hypocrisy and perpetuates a disconnect between the country and its leaders’

Especially when the economy is tanking with no real signs of recovery, unemployment is the highest it’s been in over three decades, the nation is now trillions of dollars in debt, our southern border is a sieve, hundreds of thousands of Americans are in danger of losing their homes, and everyone’s taxes are going to go up. Don’t believe any of Obama’s bullshit about only those making $250K or more will see tax increases.

Then, just when you think the audacity of this asshole couldn’t get any worse, it does. Here’s what Queen Sasquatch actually said to the owner of the resort:

Mrs Obama arrived by plane at Malaga airport on Wednesday morning and was driven in a 14-car convoy to the five star Hotel Villa Padierna, where her entourage has reserved 60 of the 129 rooms. She told owner Ricardo Arranz she had come to ‘relax and unwind’.

Relax and unwind? GMAFB!!! Exactly WTF does she need to relax and unwind from? Eating $100 a pound Kobe beef and wolfing down lobster tails like they’re M&M’s for dinner?

This POS hasn’t done anything substantive since planting her fat ass in the White House 18 months ago and becoming Queen, I mean first lady.

You can read the whole disgusting story here, and then head over to Gateway Pundit to read this outrage that proves yet again that these two assholes in the White House think they’re royalty:

Back in January 2009, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama told America that everyone must sacrifice for the greater good. Everyone must have “some skin in the game.”

What he meant, of course, was that everyone would have to sacrifice to lift American out of the worst recession since the Great Depression except for Barack and Michelle Obama.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, now we find out that the Obama White House has held one party every three days since the Obama reign began. Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH), reported:

After Obama Tells America “Everyone Must Sacrifice” the White House Throws 1 Party Every 3 Days in First Year

“Let the good times roll” – and roll they have at the Obama White House, while nearly 11% of the workforce remains unemployed, nearly four million Americans are losing their homes, and terrorists ride the open skies.

In fact, according to the Chicago Tribune, the stylish Ms. Rogers and the party-hearty First Couple hosted no less than 170 parties and social events through December 3 of 2009. And that does not even include the 17 parties and 11 open houses – feting more than 50,000 guests – ABC News reported the Obamas hosted throughout the Holiday Season.

For those not counting, that means by January, 2010, Ms. Rogers had staged one gala White House event every three days throughout the first year of the Obama Administration, making the once austere Executive Mansion look more like party central.

Remember all the grief that Nancy Reagan took from the press during the early 80′s recession for having the temerity to buy some new china for the White House, even though it was all paid for with private donations, while millions of Americans were suffering? I doubt King Obama and Queen Sasquatch used private donations to pay for all their vacations and parties, and their lapdogs in the mainstream media ignore this. Bias? What bias? I detest these pieces of shit more everyday…

    More on the jet set destination of Marbella and the castle where 60 rooms were rented.

    During Islamic rule the Moors built a castle in this city. The name Marbella, which is derived from Marbil-la, dates from this Islamic era. The traveller Ibn Battuta characterised the town as “a pretty little town in a fertile district.” In 1485 the city fell to Christian forces.

    She is currently has a staff numbering in the dozens at a cost of 1.75 $million a year.

    Previous First Ladies normally had one or two assistants at the most.

    It has become absolutely sickening how the media reports on the Obamas as though they were royalty. I recall an alphabet network covering their X-mas vacation in Hawaii. They were interviewing residents who lined a street waiting to catch a glimpse of the Messiah and Sasquatch. They then interviewed Teh One buying a snowcone for his kids. They asked hard hitting questions such as “what flavor did you buy?” and “did you have a good game of golf today?”.

    Ugh!!

    They should have been asking “What do you plan to do about the recent attempted terrorist attack on Detroit” instead, but I guess that would be asking too much of our pathetic media.

I think you can bet on Democrat donors to the tune of thousands of dollars (but probably less Democash than Taxpayers’ money is being blown on this travesty). The Republicans couold make much populist hay with this unconscionaly lavish trip, but I bet they don’t. The Republicans are probably almost as worried about November as the Democrats. They don’t want to win, but they probably will, anyway.

    Speaking of RINOs, check this shit out:

    Voinovich: Gas tax hike would pump up the job market, help close deficit
    By Shane D’Aprile -- 08/07/10 11:48 AM ET

    Retiring Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) is pressing his case for an increase in the gas tax as a way to help close the federal budget deficit and create additional jobs.

    In a letter to members of President Obama’s debt commission, Voinovich laid out his argument for the increase.

    “Fuel taxes today fund the vast majority of the federal government’s investment in infrastructure projects,” Voinovich wrote in the letter. “Due to dwindling fuel tax receipts, Congress has had to transfer billions of dollars from the General Fund to the Highway Trust Fund to maintain our current level of federal involvement.”

    Of course, an increase in the gas tax equals instant inflation as the cost of transportation gets passed on to consumers who will already have less money as they will also be paying higher transportation costs for unimprotant things like travelling to work. Only an elite member of the Ruling Class, who doesn’t pay for the fuel in the government cars that drive him from place to place, would propose such an outrage in the midst of the worst Recession since the Great Depression (wanna bet they’d be calling it a Depression if Obama was a Republican).

    By the way, comparing ‘chelle to Marie Antoinette is unfair to the latter. Marie Antoinette died at age 38, having known only life in Royal households.
    Her last words were, “Pardon me Sir, I meant not to do it”, to Sanson the executioner, whose foot she had accidentally stepped on before she was executed by guillotine.

    Can you imagine ‘chelle with that kind of class?

    Never happen. Barry has been too disasterous as President. People are nostalgic for Clinton mainly because the economy went like gangbusters under him. That he had little to do with it is immaterial to most people. He can blame Bush all he wants, but Barry Hussein is going to get the full blame for this economy. And it isn’t going to get any better. At least Clinton didn’t pilliage the treasury and nationalize the auto industry as his first acts in office. No one, and I mean no one, will look on the Obama Economy® with nostalgia. So no sweet Senator’s job for Michelle. I’m sure she’ll live high on the money Barry stole from his single term as President, and she’ll hate America for it every day of her pampered life.

    Bailed Out Firms Spend Millions on Political Causes, Federal Lobbying

    Several companies that escaped financial failure two years ago through massive taxpayer-funded bailouts are spending millions of dollars to make donations to political causes and even some candidates’ campaigns.

    General Motors, Chrysler and Citigroup are just three of the biggest bailout recipients who have continued to remain politically active, through their political action committees, federal lobbying or direct donations to the pet projects of lawmakers.

    Marbella is no longer “elite” ;-) It has lost this status like St. Tropez has lost its one before. Many “elites” switched to other locations (like Sardinia or Mallorca). To many Arabs, to many “new rich” Russians.

    There was once a circuit judge in Illinois whose job would be to ride by horse back from district to district to hear court cases. The reason he did this was to get away from his wife, whom Presidential aides would later christen “She Devil”, Mary Todd Lincoln. Looking at the guns on FLOTUS in that picture above and from what little I got to know of Michelle during the campaign I’m thinking this was one of the happiest birthdays Obama’s had in a long time and well worth the bad publicity. It’s not like image is such a concern that he quits playing golf and partying all the time anyway.

    You know that if this had happened during a Republican administration, we’d have demands for a Congressional investigation, and a government audit. And if it turned out that even one dime of the money for a lavish trip like this came from any business, or anyone connected with ‘big business’, there would be screams about payoffs from these eeeeevil businessmen.

    Worse than the Great Depression, that’d be the headline if Bush were still President, but you won’t hear the MFM say that now that Obama is our Philosopher-King. It is a very disturbing thing, and it won’t be getting any better as long as Obama is President. His Administration is such that businesses are afraid to hire new workers. Business (eeeevil business, don’t you know?) can’t grow. There are too many risks, too little reward. And that isn’t counting things like the Obama Administration actually training people overseas to outsource IT jobs, like I linked yesterday. We have two more years of this, bare minimum.

    Yeah, and yet in our local paper, someone commented that the reason businesses weren’t hiring is because they were afraid the Republicans would win in November.

    @ Rancher:

    Take a look at this. The Democrats are the ones who have ushered in this massive unemployment. They are the ones who have put in place the policies that are the drag on the economy. Unfortunately, even if the Republicans take both houses of Congress, they will have to face the Obama Veto Pen, and instrument capable of continuing these vast unemployment oppertunities. That is if Obama doesn’t decise to just rule by decree, something I think is increasingly likely, especially if the House and Senate are divided. We are fucked. We are absolutely fucked.

    Iran president: Sept. 11 exaggerated

    TEHRAN — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks were exaggerated in a fresh broadside at the United States just days after President Barack Obama voiced willingness to talk to Iran.

    Well-known for his anti-American and anti-Israeli rhetoric, the hardline populist Ahmadinejad also repeated his denial of the Holocaust, on which the consensus of historians is that six million Jews were exterminated by Nazi Germany.

    Obama probably agrees with him, at least that Americans have over-blown the importance of 9-11. It is, to Obama, no big deal. If Obama were areal leader, he’d be speaking out about the Mosque at Ground Zero. He isn’t. He’d rather sue Arizona.
