Obama amd Michelle's Vacations


Obama’s Latest Weekend Getaway; How Much it Costs Taxpayers
The Obamas are at it again, living like royalty rather than elected politicians. Over the weekend, the First Family went on separate trips, costing the American taxpayer at least a whopping $2.5 million.

Not only that, but the two spent Valentine’s Day apart from one another, prompting Obama to wish his wife a “Happy Valentine’s Day” over a television broadcast. Trouble in paradise, Mr. President?

According to USA today, Barack Obama whisked himself away to California in order to play three rounds of golf at the Porcupine Creek Golf Course in Palm Springs. A website that keeps track of Obama’s excessive trips to the green says these latest games bring our Commander-in-Chief up to 219 rounds since he took office.


Of course, golfing wasn’t the only thing Obama did while out in California, as he saw fit to take even more money from the American people. This time through fundraising, Obama held an event for the Democratic National Committee at the home of venture capitalist Sandy Robinson, as reported by the Mail Online.
Plates and a picture with the president ran attendees $10,000. Guests feeling a bit more spunky could bump it up a bit and co-chair the event for a measly $32,400.


Michelle, on the other hand, took a different presidential jet to ski with her daughters in Aspen, Colorado. While they were apart, Barack thought the best way to express his love for the woman he married would be to make a brief televised appearance to wish her a happy Valentine’s Day
