Michelle Obama Fantasizes About Leaving WH

First we have this report from Judicial Watch, via the Daily Caller:

Group: Michelle Obama’s Spain trip cost taxpayers $467K

By Alex Pappas – 04/26/2012

It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.

The right-leaning watchdog group [sic] estimated that the trip cost $467,585. It based its analysis on documents obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Air Force.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said it took his group “two years and a lawsuit to get these documents out of the Obama administration.”

That’s actually a pretty quick turnaround from this, ‘the most transparent administration in US history.’ Next, Judicial Watch should try for his college transcripts.

“It is hypocritical for President Obama to fire GSA officials for wasteful conference spending, while his family went on a luxury vacation in the Costa del Sol Spain that cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars,” Fitton said.

Actually, their vacations are nothing compared to what Obama is spending by campaigning on the taxpayers’ dime.

Among the various travel costs, the group estimated — using the Defense Department’s 2010 published hourly rates — that it cost the government $199,323 to fly to Spain and back to the United States…

Fitton’s group has previously disclosed the cost of sending the first family on overseas trips. Its analysis indicated that it cost $424,142 to fly the first family to South Africa and Botswana in 2011.

‘A half million here and a half million there, and soon you are talking about real money.’

White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on the report during a press briefing Thursday.

Which is odd, since Mr. Carney seems eager to comment on practically anything. In fact, the more trivial the better.

Meanwhile, we are being told that the ‘First Traveler’ does not want to run for President. From ABC News:

President Michelle Obama? ‘Absolutely Not’

By Mary Bruce | April 26, 2012

First Lady Michelle Obama made clear today that she does not plan to follow in Hillary Clinton’s footsteps and run for president after her husband leaves office.

"Absolutely not," the first lady declared today, when a girl at the White House for its "Take Your Daughters And Sons To Work Day," asked if she will ever run for president.

"One of the things you learn about yourself as you get older are what are your strengths and what are your interests," she said…

Mrs. Obama probably has her eyes on a job with the GSA.

Lastly, and leastly, we have this admission, via Real Clear Politics:

Michelle Obama: "Fantasy" Is To Walk Out WH "And Just Keep Walking"

April 26, 2012

"It is hard to sneak around and do what you want," Michelle Obama said today. "I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking."

Millions of Americans share her fantasy, too. Though ours includes Michelle taking her husband, the Destroyer In Chief, along with her.

In fact, it is the new ‘American Dream.’

    “…walk right out the front door and just keep walking.”
    “…waddle right out the front door and just keep waddling.” There, fixed it.

    I have, every morning for the last 3+ years, hit the alarm clock, flipped on the news, and prayed that this nightmare of an administration has ended in disgrace with Oblameless and his horses ass of a wife being perp walked through the rose garden. Sadly Moochy, my fantasy too is as yet unfulfilled.
