...White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters that the first lady will pay her personal expenses — as will the friends who are traveling with her. But that only covers a small part of the ultimate expense, given that she has full-time Secret Service protection and has to travel with an entourage of staff. That cost, as well as her travel on board an official Air Force charter plane, is covered by taxpayers.


...As the Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet reports, by the end of the summer, the first lady will have taken eight vacations. That includes a June trip to Los Angeles, where she and her daughters attended the NBA Finals, as well as an upcoming trip to the Florida Gulf Coast next weekend and a 10-day visit to Martha's Vineyard later this month with the president.


These people are just unbelievable. It sure is great to know that in these tough economic times (thanks democrats), that the Obamas are getting all that vacation time and spending our money.


What a party it's been! Eight vacations for Michelle, and that's only by the end of August. Maybe she'll try to keep it to a dozen or so for the year, since we are all cutting back.

she's not doing it on the taxpayers dole - unlike GWB - but it's good he took so much vacation - he would have done more damage than he did....

Your post indicates that you don't realize that her multiple vacations cost us a lot of money. Her eight vacations this year... so far, are not enough for the queen.

$75000 per day for security...but to be fair, she does have a very stressful life going to all of those parties and being catered to 24/7, so it's only natural that she would need to go on ten times more vacations than the rest of us.

And of course all the trips under the Repukes were "unfrivolous."

A disdain well earned.

I see, you still don't realize that she is costing us money. Even the left wing media has been able to make that leap.

Elites aren't concerned with how they spend other people's money.
