    Annual cost to support the Obama WH: > $1.4 BILLION

    Well, you can blame it on technology then. I've never heard of Barbara, Hillary, or Laura racking up even close to as many Frequent Flyer miles as ol' Shelly has.

    Then you didn't google hard enough. Laura wins by a magnitude of 294%.

    We still have 3 years to go.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    She has 48 countries to go just to match Laura's record. Certainly not saying it's impossible, but still...good luck. In the first five years Laura beat Michelle in travel 71 to 25, so you might want to change the hyperpartisan narrative from "Michelle costs the tax payers for her vacations" to "Laura Bush was a much more worldly first lady."

    You're welcome.

    That's not the point of the thread, the behavior of Michelle's mother is.

    From a 2013 article... give MO time... she'll catch up. Not to mention she has NO projects like building a woman's hospital in Africa (Laura Bush) or helping the fight against AIDS (Geo & Laura Bush).

    Michelle's travel for the last 5 yrs consists of just enough 'business' so taxpayers pick up the tab... and lots of personal vacation.

    Shes an embarrassment to the position of first lady.

    5 Facts You May Not Know About How Much Obama’s Travel Costs You
    Are the $20 million dollar vacations included in that tally? If not, they should be, since we're paying for that too. I might also mention paying for every "jaunt" our congress critters take. I have yet to read about what they might have accomplished on their jaunts, though. You'd think they would be shouting that from the rooftops! "Goodwill" is such a catch-all, isn't it?

    Greetings, SMW.

    Yeah, that's probably it; someone unrelated is doing the complaining.

    And since there were no facts to prove or disprove that assertion, or what was even meant by barking, the thread's "point" exhausted itself by the end of post #1.
