The African Queen

By Wyatt Earp | October 5, 2011

Last June, Michelle Obama loaded up the family car – in this case a modified military plane – and took a small vacation . . . to Africa.

The vacation was a mix between business and pleasure, and as always, Mooch-elle spared no expense.

And really, why should she? The trip was paid by the taxpayers.

How much does it cost taxpayers to fly First Lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters and her mother, a niece and a nephew, a hairstylist and makeup artists to South Africa and Botswana to give a few speeches, meet Nelson Mandela, and enjoy a safari on a private game preserve?

Nearly half a million dollars, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch via the Freedom of Information Act.

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 the cost of providing 192 meals for the 21 people who made the trip

The Obama daughters were listed on the manifest as “senior staff.”

Like that piece of information wouldn’t get out? Wow, talk about gall.

I wonder what the Occupy Wall Street toads will say? Eh, probably nothing.

    Jon – Those toads are “occupying” Philadelphia City Hall tomorrow. Occupying a Democrat stronghold. Planning FAIL.

    I saw one really good comment the other day on a blog, you’ll appreciate this one I laughed for a long time:

    Capitalism can no longer afford socialism.

    Good luck in Philly stay safe.

    How many jobs would have been funded by spending it on something important instead of another taxpayer paid vacation for Michelle? She obviously doesn‘t care about the people who’s money she’s spending instead of what those hard earned tax dollars were paid for!!

    Wait in a minute, I think I can answer the first question. With the Obama Stimulus $424,000 and change would come to about 1/5 of a job.

    Mooch-elle must be finally proud of USA.

    The wall-street moochers are demanding 13 things, which if accepted, would turn the country into a communist state. We are slowly(?) becoming Greece.

    Maybe it might be time to have the PFD test their water cannons…say, downtown…somewhere near CITY HALL…tomorrow…
    Just a suggestion.


    Roll safe out there.

    Moochelle has a lot of class, but it’s terribly low!

    Jon – That’s actually pretty good.

    LDIV – Her staged photo-op at Target the other day was almost as galling.

    Ferrell – Maybe her “senior staff” can pay their way?

    Mike47 – My personal favorite was the $20 minimum wage. Imbeciles.

    Bob G – If there’s any justice, they’ll also hold a Phillies rally down there tomorrow.

    Andy – Eh, the ghey rumors are just that. Right?

    Watuschski – You can say that again. Ignorant, entitled woman.

    And McDonald’s won’t make any evil profit from the $100 burgers they’ll have to sell, will they?
