Opulence on a scale never seen before in a democratic republic, the Obama’s regal reign!
Why aren’t people outraged? Is it because he’s black? Has white guilt so paralyzed whites that whites dare not raise concerns?
But what about blacks, surely they can see the hypocrisy of the the talk measured against the walk. Do they think the black president deserves it because of a perceived grievance against whites who are perceived as having an unfair advantage historically in the nation?
Or is it that the media hasn’t shined the spotlight on the issue and they just don’t know about the vacations, golfing episodes, celebrity elbow rubbing, because blacks don’t read Drudge or listen to Rush?
We're worse than broke and the Obama’s are living a life even the British and Saudi royals would envy!
A local news affiliate in Idaho reported that the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, are on a Spring Break ski trip in Sun Valley, Idaho. The story quickly spread across the Internet when picked up by the highly trafficked Drudge Report website.
But hours later, the story disappeared from the KMVT website without an update or correction. Breitbart News confirmed that the White House requested that the post be removed.
The First Family has been criticized in recent days for taking frequent vacations. Earlier this week, Breitbart News broke the story that the Obama daughters spent part of Spring Break at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Michelle Obama and the First Daughters took a separate ski trip last month to Aspen, Colorado.
While each of these trips require a significant Secret Service presence, the White House canceled public tours this month citing Secret Service staffing costs.
UPDATE: The White House has confirmed the report was removed on their request. From Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady:
From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.
