Please let me know if I got this wrong. It gets so confusing with all of the vacations the Obamas go on. Mount Rushmore is the 17th Obama vacation? Not to be confused with the Obama 17 day Christmas vacation in Hawaii. So Michelle’s trip to Las Vegas a day later would be their 18th trip? Or would we combine the two. And if her daughters were in Mexico last week with 25 Secret Service agents, would that count as the Obamas’ 19th taxpayer funded vacation? Wait, Michelle is hosting a fundraiser today in San Francisco after finishing a two-day vacation to South Dakota and Las Vegas so does that count as a vacation too?
(WHD)—Vice President Biden held five fundraisers over two days this week in Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois, culminating with an event in Chicago Thursday night. Michelle will host a fundraiser today in San Francisco after finishing a two-day vacation to South Dakota and Las Vegas.
President Obama today has two fundraisers in Burlington, Vermont and two in Portland Maine.
Imagine the outrage from the left if the Obama family were Republican. We would never hear the end of it about their non-stop vacationing and fundraising during an economic meltdown, 4 wars, and such a high unemployment rate.
LAS VEGAS -— First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are visiting Las Vegas after stopping in South Dakota on a family trip.
A spokeswoman for McCarran International Airport confirmed that the first lady was expected to arrive in Las Vegas Wednesday night. The visit wasn’t expected to affect flight operations.
White House officials say the Obamas are on a private family trip to the West.
The Obamas visited Mount Rushmore on Wednesday before heading to Las Vegas.
Remember when Barack Obama told Americans don’t go to Las Vegas?
