BREAKING: The Obamas Double Date with the Medvedev, who scandalizes the world by wearing jeans! The liberal world is a gog over Michelle’s latest fashion disaster,
while Jill Biden blows ’em out of the water meeting with our troops and their families – and who is paying for that little European Vacation?
Would someone please explain to The Pink Flamingo where Michelle Antoinette is getting all that money to do private shopping trips to Paris like the ultra rich, please – tell me! The Obamas simply CANNOT afford the lavish life-style they are living. If they continue at the current rate, I swear they will be broke – unless someone is padding their pockets.
Who is paying for their ultra wealthy life-style? Who the hell is paying for their “Romantic Date Night” in NYC that cost us $30,000? Who paid for their romantic date night in Paris? What about their quiet romantic ride along the Seine?
Michelle Antoinette has a large staff. Want to know how much they make? It looks like we pay nearly a million bucks a year to make Michelle Antoinette look like she is substantive. Is Michelle Antoinette cutting a deal with J Crew over her daughter’s clothing?
Why was Michelle Antoinette allowed a shopping trip in Paris that millions of French citizens are not allowed?
When Mary Todd Lincoln acted like Michelle does, she was considered unstable and mentally disturbed. Michelle Antoinette is hailed as the great fashion icon. But – she needs substance in her life. We all know what happened to Marie Antoinette – does Michelle?
“…On Sunday, the American first lady and daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, went shopping at Bonpoint, a children’s clothing store favored by wealthy Parisians and international jet-setters like Sofia Coppola.
Bonpoint’s store in the tony Saint Germain des Pres neighborhood was closed for inventory on Monday and store officials were not available to discuss what, if anything, they bought. The brand, known for its airy stores carrying cashmere baby sweaters and smocked pastel frocks, was a far cry from CrewCuts, J. Crew’s children’s line, which the Obama girls wore to the inauguration.
Mrs. Obama and the girls met up with the president in Paris, on the last leg of his six-day tour of four Middle Eastern and European countries. Obama left Paris for Washington, D.C., on Sunday morning, leaving his wife and children to enjoy the French capital on their own….”
They went to the Tower. The met with the Queen. They saw a live performance of The Lion King, and then went to the Harry Potter movie set.
Then again, the White House REFUSES to discuss how much Michelle Antoinette’s European Vacation.
“...Though White House rules for vacations, or unofficial travel, requires reimbursing the government the equivalent to the cost of what a commercial flight would have been, such a reimbursement would amount to only a fraction of the total cost of the first lady’s European trip.
For example, it would not include the cost of the security detail and the cargo plane that had to be deployed. Moreover, the cost of a commercial airline ticket is substantially less than the cost of operating a military passenger jet….”
“…A flight from Washington to Paris would be seven hours and 30 minutes, according to Air Routing International, a company that guides corporate flight planners. A flight from Paris to London would be 40 minutes, and a flight from London to Washington would be seven hours and nine minutes.
If these flight hours are multiplied with the cost per hour estimates in the CRS report, the air travel cost would range from $22,185 to $80,917 for the trip from Washington to Paris. From Paris to London, it would range from $1,952.88 to $7,120.
The return trip from London to Washington would range from $20,706 to $75,523. The varying estimates are based on whether the White House Military Office estimates are used or the higher U.S. Air Force estimates are used.
Combined, the first lady’s air travel cost would have been $44,843.28, under the White House estimate or $163,560.50, under the Air Force estimate, but these estimates are for fiscal year 1998 dollars.
Adjusted for inflation to 2009 dollars, the cost to taxpayers of the Washington-to-Paris-to-London-to-Washington air travel would have ranged from $58,834.02 to $214,591.38, according to the inflation estimates by the Bureau of Labor Statistics….”
