Michelle, say it isn't so!

Judicial Watch, this March, sued the administration to get this this information through the FOI act.

Michelle Obama Listed Daughters As “Senior Staffers” To Justify Expensive African Vacation and Safari.

October 5, 2011, Judicial Watch said the U.S. Air Force provided a C-32 (a Boeing 757) modified by the military for the purpose of flying big-wigs around the world – to fly the First Lady and her entourage to and from Africa , at a cost of $424,142. Another $928.44 was listed as “bulk food” costs of providing 192 onboard meals for the 21 people who made the trip.

The Obama daughters were listed on the airplane manifest as “senior staff.” “This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our overextended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry loose this information.” The nation is suffering with the economy sputtering, the national debt soaring and Obama’s economic rescue policies not only failing but actively making things worse. Meanwhile, the First Lady justifies an expensive trip to Africa to take a vacation and safari with her daughters by saying it’s “official business” and even going so far as to list her children as “staffers.” The level of arrogance and dishonesty on display here is outrageous. It’s a true story. Check out these links...

    But they have so much to offer with all their years (Cough...Cough) of WISDOM! How DARE YOU SPEAK ILL of these fine americans...You must be a racist! You should be blaming the Bush girls of some crime rather than besmirching the good name of Obama.

    What do we expect from this very dishonest family.

    They want a second term to continue vacationing, play and have more parties on OUR EXPENSE!!
  • Hopscotch 2012/06/04 19:09:23
    RUBISH!....a right wing SPIN on the facts. The "Judicial Watch" is well known for it's conservative view point and is against anything Democratic or Republican's after they get caught. It didn't say anything about their trips to visit Romney's money over seas. "What did you expect the kids to be listed as.......Precious Cargo?"

  • Hopscotch Artist~... 2012/06/05 02:07:42
    The kids went along to be examples as they met the foreign kids. They had to take somebody. It's the perks of the job, learn live with it or run for POTUS yourself. let's see what you do with your kids when you're president. Don't just whine, falling for some conservative spin.
  • donna.r... Hopscotch 2012/07/10 14:21:08
    Why does it matter to anyone what Romney does with HIS money if he's is not doing anything illegal? I see the re-education camp of class warfare is alive and doing well.
  • Hopscotch donna.r... 2012/07/10 14:45:49 (edited)
    The people want to know. "He's the man that would be KING". It's every bodies business. The people will be the judge of that. people king bodies business people judge

    What's so bad he's hiding it ? How do you know it's legal?
  • donna.r... Hopscotch 2012/07/10 15:08:39
    Hm. Hiding things? Are you freakin serious? King Clown Shoes is the least transparent "king" of all time. and what Romney does with HIS money is of no consequence to me. What Clownie does with MINE is.

  • donna.r... Hopscotch 2012/07/10 16:34:11
    Not to care about Romney's money? Seriously, what is important about that? It does not effect me or you in any way. You need to pull your head out of the MSM's arse. Clown Shoes has no record to run on so trying to debase his opponent is ALL he has. So far Romney is ignoring it rather than get into it with the MSM or anyone. They must be pulling their hair out by the roots...LMAO!
  • Hopscotch donna.r... 2012/07/10 17:10:26
    Great spin, but it won't work.

    "Rumneystiltskin...is his name...
    He says he spins straw into GOLD?
    For the RICH not the poor".

    Romney says: "I know how things work. You can tell by my past deeds outsourcing and bankruptcy". spins straw gold rich poor romney work deeds outsourcing bankruptcy

    Send the lady to the grocery store, and there's an entourage, with costs. It's always, official business. It's unavoidable, the entourage and the works.
    Should she sit at home, with her kids 24/7? Then it's lazy Michelle, stays home with kids. A senior's dicount?
    ...anyone can see they're not seniors.
    I bet if the daughters stayed home, there would the extra costs. Babysitters, bodyguards ...pricey air tickets worth of security? It's nickels and dimes blown out of focus.

    No question. Just that I've given up any hope that the federal government will ever go after any of their cronies. I mean, if they won't go after him for drone hits without judicial review, they sure as hell won't go after him for this.

    When you go on a business trip to Africa, you are a fool not to explore before you return.

    Obama has spent less on his travels than Bush. Why is this a significant issue for anybody?
