The Brits do a far better job of keeping track of things than we do. In a Daily Mail article posted on the internet yesterday, they were recounting the $10 million that Michelle Obama has spent in Taxpayer money on her vacations since arriving as first lady.
Now comes this little tidbit today... Obama daughters visit Nantucket
With President Barack Obama playing golf and getting briefed on the approaching Hurricane Irene on Martha's Vineyard yesterday, his daughters, Sasha and Malia, took an excursion to Nantucket. President Obama's daughters arrived at noon in a private, 40-foot boat, which was escorted into the harbor by a Coast Guard cutter, according to a source with knowledge of the girls' trip to the island. Accompanied by Secret Service agents on the impromptu visit, the girls strolled around downtown, and were spotted at the Cheryl Fudge clothing store and other locations in the core district before departing around 5 p.m. The Obamas are vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for the second straight summer.
So..... the adolescent presidential daughters get their own shopping junket to Nantucket, absent the company of their mother or father. And the American taxpayers once again are soaked for the cost of Cost Guard cutters to escort them along with an extensive Secret Service detail to protect them while they go clothes shopping. I wonder what Michelle was up to. Sipping Vodka martinis back home at the ranch? And perhaps the prez was setting out for another round of golf. No, he was probably diligently working on his new jobs and economic report as promised. Who knows. Who cares. Obviously the mainstream media don't seem to have a problem with any of it.
