First Lady Michelle Obama, Daughters Visit Mt. Rushmore Before Heading off to Vegas on a “Private Family Trip”

Who’s up for another trip? MO and the girls, that’s who. Mt Rushmore and Vegas baby. It must be nice. Didn’t the oldest daughter just get back from spring break in Mexico? That was just 10 days ago. Time for a “family trip”

Michelle Obama visits Mount Rushmore

KEYSTONE — First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, showed a hankering for history Wednesday during a brief visit to Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

Then they showed a bit of a sweet tooth by stopping at the Turtle Town old-fashioned fudge and ice-cream shop in Keystone, where manager Deb Splinter served them ice cream and other treats.

The Obamas arrived at the shop at about 3:45 p.m., following a visit to Mount Rushmore that restricted access to parts of the memorial and required visitors during that period to go through security checkpoint where one officer wore a U.S. Secret Service shirt. The Obamas had flown into Ellsworth Air Force Base earlier in the day and rode in a gray Suburban that was part of a motorcade of about 10 vehicles

First Lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters are on their way to Las Vegas tonight as part of a trip around the western United States.

“Mrs. Obama and her daughters are taking a private family trip to the western United States,” said Kristina Schake, the First Lady’s communications director.

Mount Rushmore was among the family’s stops earlier today.

Airport officials confirmed Obama will be landing at McCarran International Airport.

The family’s visit will not effect airport operations, airport officials said. No details have been announced about what the First Lady and her daughters, 10-year-old Sasha and 13-year-old Malia, will do during their stay

We can add this trip to the others which brings the number of Obama vacations up to 17

**Don’t forget Michelle’s side trip to London to “shop”  after the Obamas went to France as part of D-Day memorial.  Barack Obama flew home on Air Force 1; Michelle flew home on Air Force 2.**

Remember the Photo-Op of Michelle Obama shopping at Target?

*****************

Well what else would one wear on a $4m break? From $2,000 dress to $1,000 skirt, Michelle Obama’s lavish Hawaii wardrobe revealed

Michelle Obama successfully managed to rile U.S. taxpayers with her lavish $4m family jaunt to Hawaii this Christmas.

But it seems her expensive taste has not stopped there, as her vacation wardrobe has proved to be equally lavish.

Though the First Lady has only been spotted on a couple of occasions since arriving in Kailua, Oahu, some sartorial analysis of her fashion choices has revealed that her outfits have been consistently high-end.

A design by French-born, U.S.-based designer Sophie Theallet, who is a favourite with fashion insiders, it would have set Mrs Obama back almost $2,000 when she bought it in 2009.

More recent creations by Theallet sell for even higher figures, a mark-up likely triggered by demand following the First Lady’s endorsement of the label.

She deemed it necessary to change for her second photo op later that day, perhaps an opportunity to show off another pricey purchase.

Many consider Mrs Obama’s penchant for expensive fashion labels at odds with her position as an everywoman who identifies with the average woman.

One comment on the Naked DC site read: ‘She claims to be a champion of the poor and a fellow bargain shopper, but yet, here she is, sporting a dress that no unemployed American can afford.

‘For someone who says she understands the troubles of the American people, who claims to shop at Target, she certainly fails to show it.’

The question is:  Do Michelle’s clothes come out of the taxpayer funded  $1,400,000.00  yearly budget for the first lady or does Michelle pay for this through her own personal credit card?

===============================

1.  Food prices rising.

2.  Gasoline prices rising.

3.  Electricity soon to skyrocket with EPA strangling the coal industry.

Yet, Michelle Obama feels she deserves to go on vacations/trips time after time with her entourage and Secret Service agents.

Are YOU planning to forgo your summer vacation plans due to the rising costs in America?

HOW MANY TIMES has Michelle and Barack visited the inner cities of America’s large cities, say CHICAGO since they moved to the White House?

How’s that Hopey, Changey thing working our for YOU?

  1. What a crock of shit!!! What do you think every other President and first lady did?

    Alex:

    Can YOU send me the FACTS of the number of and cost to taxpayers of vacations for say Laura Bush or Hillary Clinton (when Bill Clinton was POTUS) took… WITHOUT ….their husbands? Say to England, Africa,Spain etc.?

    George and Laura Bush took a majority of their vacations either on their own ranch or Camp David.

    Be careful of WHO you call stupid.
