Obama's lavish lifestyle

In January, President Obama insisted that
"everybody in the country is going to have to sacrifice something, accept change for the greater good. Everybody is going to have to give. Everybody is going to have to have some skin in the game."

As usual they like to lecture us but they dont follow their own advise!!
So The Obama modus operandi is becoming clear. From lavish trips to Spain to reportedly flying Bo, the President's Portuguese water dog, on a separate aircraft to vacation with them in Maine, to a date night in New York City that perhaps cost nearly $100,000, their idea of austerity is really just the lap of luxury, at least for ordinary folks.

Now she is vacationing in a luxury resort in Spain !!! dont we have nice hotels in the US?

Official portions of the trip will be picked up by the taxpayer, including transport on the Air Force version of a 757, which would cost around $146,000 (£91,900) for the round trip (not including four to five days' ground time), and her mandatory Secret Service detail.

At an estimated 70 agents - at the $273-a-day federal per diem for five days, that's just over £60,000 for Secret Service room and board.

That's a grand total of £150,000 - and that's just for starters.

UPDATE II - Outrages - Obamas $345,000 /week vacation !!! Are we paying for this??
