Does Anyone Else Alive Take As Much Vacation Time As The Obamas?

What exactly is Michelle Obama doing that requires her to take so many vacations? They’re up to what, 16 vacations in 3 1/2 years? That’s better than a vacation every 3 months. Is there anybody else alive who takes this much vacation time and spends this much money while she does it?

It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.

The right-leaning watchdog group estimated that the trip cost $467,585. It based its analysis on documents obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Air Force.

…Fitton’s group has previously disclosed the cost of sending the first family on overseas trips. Its analysis indicated that it cost $424,142 to fly the first family to South Africa and Botswana in 2011.

Apparently golf, basketball, and campaigning for reelection must really tire the President out. On the other hand, his wife must get worn out nagging people about what they eat, which is all she seems to do these days. Whatever the case may be, there are Americans who wish they could take that many exorbitant vacations, but they’re just too busy with work. It’s good to know that apparently the President of the United States isn’t weighed down with any responsibilities besides, well, you know, complaining about all those wealthy one percenters living high on the hog and spending so much money when the “99 percent” are having such a hard time.
