Luxurious: The Obamas booked 60 rooms at the five-star Villa Padierna
Michelle’s VACATION PHOTOS
Honestly, you just haven’t lived ’til you’ve stayed in a private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel, the
It only cost $95,000, and I was able to hold the total bill under $500,000 for the week. What a bargain!
Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times. Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.
But hey, Barack’s Air Force One costs about $200,000 per hour to operate and with his many trips, he spent almost half a billion dollars on flights alone last year. $500,000,000.Billion
By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella, great lobster with
rice and oysters!
I’m ashamed to admit the lobsters we ate in Martha’s Vineyard were not quite as tasty, but what can you do if you’re not in Europe, you have to just grin and bear it.
Michelle Obama’s lavish holiday in Marbella has led her to be compared to Marie Antoinette.
The First Lady is in the Spanish city for four days with her daughter Sasha – and a total of 68 Secret Service agents from the US.
She is staying at the five-star Hotel Villa Padierna, where her entourage has reserved 60 of the 129 rooms.
know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon.
I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days. The White House is so confining and small!
P.S. Thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to India !

P.SS. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha’s Vineyard – It was fabulous! And thanks for that second smaller jet that took our dog Bo to Martha’s Vineyard so we and the children could have him with us while we were away from the White House for eleven days.
Oh, I almost forgot to say thanks al so for our
two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000 square foot house was great!
PSSSs We all had a fabulous time in Africa visiting Barack’s birthplace. What a wonderful place!
Don’t forget my ski trip to Vail this winter.
All this while Barack plays golf !
Thanks America ! But you owe it to me!
Remember, we all have to share the pain
of these hard economic times equally!
We love to redistribute and share the wealth.
Austerity is only for the “little” people, not for the big, important, significant, trend-setting, cutting-edge, social and poltiical demigods like the Obamas.
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.’
And 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.
