Who really cares about all of this. But eating fish and chips with the taxpayers money, now that's an unforgiviable sin.

Apparently you are the one who either lives in Alaska, or selectively chooses to criticize Palin for her politics. Which is it?
Neither, I criticize dishonest behavior and bad politics no matter what side they come from. If you have read my other posts, you will find that I criticize Obama quite a bit. What about all of Bush's trips to his ranch in Texas. I bet you paid quite a bit for this as well. But come on, our government is giving out loads of corporate welfare, including the ridiculous bailout, is engaged in two wars that will have price tags in the trillions before they are finished and include plenty of crony no-bid contracts. Congress is talking about spending $2 billion on an f-22 that is useless for todays wars but, nevertheless, lines the pockets of defense contractors. Obama should share the blame for alot of these things as well becuase he is embracing the war in Afghanistan, embracing the bailout andnot ending the war in Iraq soon enought, but we've got bigger things to worry about than 1 ****in Eurpoean vacation.

Their current summer vacation includes sightseeing in Russia, Italy and Ghana.

I thought he moved her family in the white house so she could baby sit? Why are we footing this bill now? Wasn't just a few weeks ago that they were all jetting around Paris and England on "Michelle One" shopping, sight seeing and eating Fish and Chips?

I wonder what offical business that was about? Obammyhad already left on Air Force One. So it was just the free loading family jetting around.
WHY in the world not? Seriously? You act like he's the first president to travel with his family.

provide documentation. It might be true, probably is, but I'm not going to just assume that we are paying for it. They have a lot of money. Maybe they're spending their own hard earned money. You have to admit that it is possible.

I never recall other politicians bringing their wife, kids, grandmother and godmother on "official" business trips. This group seems to be getting bigger and bigger.

Weren't the minions told to and I quote obama:

"Get in their face and argue with them, sharpen your elbows"

During his campaign he's just being a good little minion and obeying his master.
