Michelle Obama and friends aren’t skiing in Vail — their children are

Parents are now vacation “chaperones” as kids jet off on elegant jaunts

Check out this bit of chutzpah:

“The First Lady and several close friends are chaperoning their children, (including the Obama daughters Sasha and Malia) on a ski trip,” a White House official told the press pool reporter who was following President Obama yesterday.

Reports coming out of Vail, Colorado say Michelle & Company arrived Friday night and are staying at the world-class Sebastian Hotel on Vail Mountain. Rooms start at a mere $605 per night for a room with two queen beds and head north of $2,000 for multi-bedroom suites.

And the Prez? Obama will be doing drudge duty as the “parent coach” for Sasha’s basketball team, even though Sasha was busying herself on the snowy slopes of Vail.

    The elitist Obama’s think Americans are fools. They must be right. He was elected.

    Feel like havin’ an anneurism? Read THIS from L.A. Times via DRUDGE:


    We apparently need to have less, so th’ muslim squatter & co. can have more! ANOTHER VACATION on our dime!

      Thanks for the link, Doc. I’m surprised to see this commentary in the left-leaning LA Times. Andrew Malcolm clearly takes Obama to task, and does a great job of it at that! Good sleuthing.

        THANKS, MAN! Always tryin’ to inform my fellow conservatives here! We are, in my opinion, the last bastion of Constitution believers, & we’ve got to stick together!

    And Obama says: “we have to live within our means?”
    He, his family and friends are living outside ‘OUR’
    means! We cannot afford such vacations, but we have
    to pay for theirs? This is a corrupt Administration!

    Thanks to the failed economic policies of “You Lie!” hussein, most Americans now have to “staycation” at home, with only the “luxury” of grilling hot dogs in the back yard, while these slackers rip-off the taxpayers with luxury vacation after luxury vacation in between golf outing after golf outing.

    Here’s the solution to this outrage: provide “You Lie!” a permanent vacation from government in November, 2012.

    This post clearly shows the Obamas as the typical
    ‘new rich’ Their excesses are being paid by us the
    taxpayers. The Obamas are hypocrites!

    “Has any POTUS ever squandered so much taxpayer money on his family’s lavish lifestyle as this one? It leaves me breathless when he blabbers about the tough economic times and the need to tighten our belts, blah, blah, blah… His regime is taking us for the biggest ride ever by a POTUS in my memory.”

    I am the President of the Colorado Ski Authority website (http://www.coloradoskiauthority.com/)and I can confirm that Michelle Obama and her daughters were in Vail, CO this weekend. I was able to see them at Restaurant Kelly Liken and this restaurant was apparently the main reason that Michelle wanted to come to Vail.

    Michelle Obama knows how to ski??? i bet she put a “wide load” sign on her butt. that way all the other LIBTARDS could move out of her way.
