Breaking: Michelle Obama’s $470,000 Vacation
April 26, 2012

Judicial Watch, a public interest group that “investigates and fights government corruption”, has unveiled the newest ‘surprise’ of abominable government spending. According to their report, they obtained documents from the US Air Force and the Secret Service that contained the costs of Michelle Obama’s 2010 Spanish vacation. The grand total: $467,585…picked up by the taxpayers, of course.

Judicial Watch stated they “obtained the Secret Service records pursuant to an August 2010 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request,” and “obtained the U.S. Air Force records pursuant to a March 5, 2012, FOIA lawsuit.”

The Air Force records indicate their portion of the costs were $213,124.15, based on 17 hours and 15 minutes of total flight time between Camp Andrews, Malaga, and Mallorca, and stay for the 15 member flight crew at a nearby motel. They did not release details of the passengers, but the New York Times has previously reported that one of the Obama children, two friends and four of their daughters, and several aides and advance staff members all accompanied.

Secret Service reported in their records that taxpayers will have shelled out $26,670.61 for a chauffer tour of Costa del Sol and doled out over $50,000 just to a travel planning company. That’s not all, we taxpayers also paid for separate lodging for a dog and its handler.

Judicial Watch reported, “the White House claims the Obamas “paid their own way” for the vacation, the records detail some of the required security and other costs to taxpayers for the private trip.”

This excerpt is from the Judicial Watch release:

“The American people can ill afford to keep sending the First Family on vacations around the globe,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There needs to be greater sensitivity to the costs borne by taxpayers for these personal trips. It is hypocritical for President Obama to fire GSA officials for wasteful conference spending, while his family went on a luxury vacation in the Costa del Sol Spain that cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars. No wonder it took two years and a lawsuit to get these documents out of the Obama administration.”

Judicial Watch previously obtained documents detailing costs for a June 21-27, 2011, trip taken by Michelle Obama, her family and her staff to South Africa and Botswana. Judicial Watch received mission expense records and passenger manifests for the Africa trip that described costs of $424,142 for the flight and crew alone. Other expenses, such as off-flight food, transportation, security, etc. were not included.”

Ok, so in the past two weeks, we have:

-$800,000 for the GSA’s lavish Las Vegas vacation

-$470,000 for Michelle Obama’s Spanish getaway

-95+ Rounds of golf played by Barack…during a recession.

-$850,000 for Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s $32,000 round trip tickets home to see his family.

-Secret Service Agents involving themselves with prostitution

-Barack Obama seen in a video telling a crowd part of his job is to scout out vacation spots for Michelle

-Barack Obama touring the country giving campaign speeches, but ironically has his first rally in over a week.

I don’t know what to say, besides: SHARE this with your friends so they too can see the stupid spending happening in this Obama administration.

Kinda difficult for the committee to come down on the GSA for spending $800,000 on a national convention, when Moochelle is blowing half that or more on every vacation.

Don't sweat the small stuff. Not to be outdone by the GSA, MO is in training to do even better next trip!
