It is good to be King, isn’t it, @BarackObama?

"My will is enough!"

“Divine right”

Especially when you can use public money to give your (estranged?) (1) Queen her birthday gift:

Via Twitchy.

Some background from Bridget Johnson:

President Obama flew back from his holiday Hawaii break yesterday with daughters Sasha and Malia in tow, but without the first lady.

Michelle Obama stayed behind in Hawaii. According to the White House, “As part of her birthday gift from the President, the First Lady will remain in Hawaii to spend time with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday.”


According to the White House pool reports filed over the holiday break, President Obama would meet up with his wife for dinner but spent much of the vacation alone at the gym or with friends for many, many marathon hours of golf.

Trouble in the Royal Chamber? Anyone know what Vera Baker is doing these days?

PS: Sure, their private life is their business, and I’d be happy to keep it that way if their side didn’t feel so free to break that rule when the subject is on the Right. Besides, divorce rumors have swirled around those two, before. In the end, though, what burns me is the arrogant use of public money to buy a gift for Michelle. I can understand the need for security, hence no traveling on public airlines, but you can at least reimburse the country the cost of the fuel, Mr. President. (2)

(1) Yeah, it’s the Enquirer. But they have a better track record than their common reputation would suggest. As Bridget points out, they nailed John Edwards and Jesse Jackson’s affairs.
(2) That’s “Mr. President,” not “Your Majesty.” I do think he has trouble remembering the difference.

    I’ll wager that the taxpayers get stuck paying for her friends airfare as well.

    Yep but lets face it this country should be giving her these perks. She should have gotten them all along in her life. She deserves this kind of treatment. It is the lack of this treatment that causes Ms Obama to hate this country. Now as she flies over this country she may put on her tiara, and tell us all how she should rule us. LOL

    Along with that, didn’t they stay at Oprah’s place in Hawaii?? According to Oprah, Michelle can’t stand Oprah because she is so out of shape. Just goes to show you M is not beyond the use of the tools at hand. When they serve her purposes. – Lorica

    Oh crap. She is setting up for a run against Hillary in ’16…

    Yes, sir, it’s all a plot to transfer the wealth of this country from the middle class to those who need it most: The Obamas…

    That’s also why he has (and has had for 5 years now) laser-like focus on creating jobs. This is especially obvious from his speech this morning reminding us how many jobs will be created by extending unemployment benefits to those who’ve long given up on looking for work and enjoy the benefits of stupid congress jackasses, including Republicans dumb enough to think they can buy the same votes Democraps already have in their pockets.

  5. Divorce? You can’t lose something you never had.
