It’s Good to be King: The Extravagance of the Obama Family

“Let them eat cake.” Nobody knows if Marie Antoinette ever really said it, but the fact remains that if she did not utter it in fact, she lived it in deed. “Let them eat cake” was what the French Queen, supposedly, uttered when she was informed that the citizens had no bread to eat. The Queen was so out of touch with society that she never stopped to think about how others live. It’s good to be royalty.

On Thanksgiving, the Obamas had a feast that would have made Marie Antoinette green with envy. President Obama spends outrageous sums of money for lavish dinners and his family gets multiple vacations per year. Meanwhile, 23 million Americans are still out of work and we have to hear from our King President that the rich are evil and that he is the friend of the middle class.

According to the White House, the Obamas enjoyed for Thanksgiving,

Turkey
Ham
Cornbread Stuffing
Oyster Stuffing
Greens
Macaroni and cheese
Sweet Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Dinner Rolls

And for dessert, they enjoyed six kinds of pie,

Banana Cream Pie
Pumpkin Pie
Apple Pie
Sweet Potato Pie
Huckleberry Pie
Cherry Pie

Sounds delicious. Unlike the First Lady, I generally don’t concern myself with what other people eat. However, since ascending to the highest office, President Obama has spoken a great deal about everybody pitching in, making do with less to get out of this crisis that he and his Marxist allies made infinitely more volatile.

However, for him and his family, there’s nothing too good. In 3 years, Michelle Obama took 16 vacations! She flies around the world on our taxpayer-funded plane while her husband tells us how he’s a friend of the middle class.

The royal treatment doesn’t stop there; Obama has taken to throwing lavish dinners with celebrity chefs, event planners and has even had Beyonce perform for him and his guests. In May 2012, Obama threw a dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon that cost $969,793. Gary Walters, the Chief Usher for the White House for every President from Reagan to George W. Bush says the highest costing dinner he can remember was in the $190,000 to $200,000 range.

Congressman Darrell Issa has criticized the Obamas’ spending habits and said,

“During these tough economic times, Americans are reining in their spending wherever possible. The Executive Branch should be mindful of this. Reports of excessively lavish events, however, indicate the opposite.”

The liberal media has been all-too-happy to call it out-of-touch elitism if Mitt Romney lives extravagantly with his own money. However, when Obama does it with our money, there doesn’t seem to be a peep from the mainstream media.

While I cannot rightfully claim to be an expert on the French Revolution, it is safe to say that the cause of revolution was greatly aided by the disaffection of the third estate (the commoners) with the nobility and their entirely separate set of rules. Adding to the volatility of pre-revolution France was the failed economic policies of Louis XVI that brought widespread fear amongst the masses. Finally, the brutal arrogance of the absolute monarch and the infuriating indifference to the common man’s struggles brought the kettle to a boil and the rest, as they say, is history.

    They actually had Popeyes deep fried chicken and McDonalds fries.

  2. Lori Gibson says:

    This lavish extravagant Obama lifestyle is the height of hypocrisy gone wild , with 23 million Americans unemployed ! Five different kinds of pies necessary for Michelle Obama who preaches banning junk food to the masses ? If she practiced what she preached, the Obamas would have had fruit cups for Thanksgiving dessert ! The media should be all over such hypocrisy ! And the excessive costly vacations are even more offensive, while this nation is sinking into severe decline & debt ! DISGRACEFUL WHITE HOUSE !

  3. Rose-Marie Noa says:

    King O may find himself in the same mess that Marie Antoinette & Louis found themselves!!! There are many many people in America who really dislike he & moochelle’s extravagance on OUR dime!!! He may have a rude awakening one fine day!!!

  4. Reminds me of the Nazi’s that use to have the big lavish parties while the SS stole and confiscated people’s pictures, silver, jewelry and so on and then locked them in camps and fed them gruel and bread: yet they lived high off the hog with meat and potatoes, gowns, dancing, and so on! They had more at their Thanksgiving meal in different meats and 6 different pies, yet funny how Michelle wants the kids in the public school system to not have these deserts and the different meats, heavens, green bean casserole? GASP!! Hey, Michelle, how about some of your breaded chicken nuggets and patties these kids in school eat? Taste like crap, yet that is what you are feeding them. Mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, gosh, not in school. Potatoes are suppose to be fattening. Heaven help them with desert. What is that??? Eat like I SAY, not as I do!

    I get the Obama’s feel entitled to live a life of royalty. But we as voting Americans have allowed this. From the biggest inaugural bash in US history in 2008 to their visit to the Taj Mahal. The media has put the Obama’s on this pedestal. I believe a second term was acquired through voter fraud but we will never get the facts because the media is disinterested in doing their job like they did years ago during Watergate.
    Get ready for a second term agenda that will change America for the worse and probably for good. It breaks my heart that this President has been the most divisive Commander in Chief in history. Nothing is ever his fault. He has attacked the job creators and labeled them thieves. He has put more on the dole than any administration in history. Expect more of the same only intensified. Now comes payback to those that supported him such as Unions to get Card Check. Imposed gun control, Cap and Trade etc. And the Republicans are attacking the Tea Party? I say conservatism is doomed. I pray for the best but expect the worst from this bunch running the country Republican and Democrat alike.

    • marilyn b. says:

      Yes, Mr. O has done all of the above and the Democrats are really feeling BIG. Just wait. They too will suffer as we who tried to do better. Things are going to get nasty. Wait and see. GOD knows his heart and all the czars, etc. etc. HE will take care of him!!!!!!

  6. Granny D. says:

    Ah, but they did cut back on their Thanksgiving menu….. I didn’t see any Cranberries listed….. I always thougth that was a basic ingredient to a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner… from the first Thanksgiving to this one…. hurrah for the American cranberry! We had them in two forms at our dinner…. maybe they are too “commom”?

  7. Jaclyn Barnes says:

    But I’m sure that you will try to,find a way!It’s a sad fact that America has a president that,can not take responsibility for anything!

  8. John Ronan says:

    I guess it is only news to the media when a Republican does it. I guess Michelle loves to suck on the public teat, what else can you say!?!

  9. Donna H says:

    I have always wondered if she perchases all their clothing (hers, his, the two girls and maybe Mamas with a credit card paid for by the American tax payer??? )Also when we take a vacation (which is non-exsistant) since this illegal mob from Chicago took over, we have to pay for our own. Our employer doesn’t pay for it. Whether they realise it or not “WE” are his employer and ONLY HIS so we should NOT be paying for anyone elses (and NOT his either for that matter!!!!!)

  10. Grandma says:

    We too, had two cranbery dishes!! Thank you Granny D. What were the “greens?
    Why are there only two of us that responded to this post?? I sure hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!! I sure did! Four generations were there!! I’m looking forward to next year when one of the “good cooks” promised to bring a Cranberry Pie!! God Bless! XOXO

  11. Dennis says:

    Of the states Romney needed to secure the election, Obama only won by 400,000 votes in 4 states, all of which showed Romney ahead in the days leading up to the election, but losing by a substantial margin, all of which have precincts that inexplicably went 99% for Obama and had voter registrations that exceeded their population, all of which have public statements of problems with voting machines changing Romney votes to Obama.

    Never has America needed her citizen Patriots to stand and fight, as she does now.

    It is obviously up to We the People to do our job and hold the individual Secretary of State in each of these states accountable. We only need a total of 17 states our of the 24 states won by Romney, to hold their Electoral votes, to deny Obama the Presidency, which he won by deception, fraud and bribery. We only have 22 days in which to save this nation. Isn’t it time that you as a sovereign citizen, stand up and help stop this travesty?

    If you legally want to end Obama and his gang of thugs almost immediately, and legally, sign the petition at:

    What does the Obamas use their money for?

    What do the Obamas use their money for? There are no shelter or food expenses at the @hit House. Do they pay for the tuition of private school education? Who pays for the expenses of those family, friends, pets etc.who accompany them in their travels? Do they ever pay for anything?
    Everyone else must save and if they are able, may get one vacation a year. A ball game or movie costs too much for the average family. If they care about this country’s poor and struggling, why doesn’t he donate his salary back or simply pay for their own personal expenses and bills as all AMERICANS must do!

  13. SallyE says:

    I am so sick of these people. I can’t believe we have to endure them for another 4 years.

    • Karen says:

      Look at the petty calling the petty “petty”. How is it you pay so much attention to GW Bush menu? Just more of the demo blame game stuffing for every turkey who listens.

  14. Stan says:

    SO WHAT ARE YA PROTESTORS GONNA DO ABOUT IT???

  15. Stan B says:

    SO!! WAHT ARE YA PROTESTORS GONNA DO ABOUT IT?? WHAT EVER IT IS, I DOUBLE-DOG DARE YA!!!!!

    • dave says:

      Ah yes, the loud voice from the BACK of the room, your the person who squeals the loudest for some else to do the dirty work! yea we know you !!!!!!

  16. Rita Preuitt says:

    I see all these people complaining about the Obamas and, yet, the people reelected him knowing what a sorry president he is. Not only is he a sorry president but, in my opinion, he and his wife are extremely sorry people. He thinks of himself as a dictator and I think America will never be the same. Thank you, all you stupid people who voted for him. Only thing, I honestly don’t know but about 6 people who voted for him. So, exactly how DID he get reelected? HUH?????????????

  17. That is exactly what I had for Thanksgiving, except for the green bean casserole and all the pies except pumpkin.

    this thread is a good place for haters who greedily lap up any information that is both bullshit and soothing to the ego. all presidents lay out a spread on holidays!

    such a bunch of sore losers on this site.

    if you have balls for truth, check it out.

    a history of white house thanksgiving meals…
    http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_22034009/thanksgiving-at-white-house-turkey-is-staple-but

    2008: President George W. Bush spent Thanksgiving at Camp David. On the menu: Free-range roast turkey, cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, sautéed green beans, morelia style gazpacho with spinach salad, zucchini gratin, whipped maple sweet potatoes, buttered mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, fresh clover rolls with honey butter, pumpkin pie with whipped topping, apple pie, pumpkin mousse trifle and a fresh fruit platter.

    you righties are so petty and mean, its no wonder you’ve been landslided past two elections. and the dem winning streak isn’t over yet.

    hey, remember that time mitt romney ran for president? bwahahahahah

    • Dara says:

      @Pinhead Lefty – Bush was NOT attempting to tell US what to eat. Bush DID NOT have 23 M people on unemployment. Bush DID NOT have 47 M on food stamps.

      P.S. Bush is NO LONGER president. Time to STOP blaming him – and take responsibility for the FAILED president that you LEFTIES OWN!

    • Anna says:

      “you righties are so mean, its no wonder you’ve been landslided past two election…”

      Eat your own words, lily longflower.

    • dave says:

      well good for you, maybe you want to give YOUR wealth to Obama ?? it’s ok for you to talk, but mark my words you will be thrown under the bus by your king, “The night of ther Long Knives” or maybe your too young to remember ?????……..

    • PowerOfChoice says:

      @Lily Longflower … You must have forgotten to watch the video. It is not the Thanksgiving meal which potentially has individuals angry it is the other half million to million dollars for each of Obama’s lavish Whitehouse dinners.

      That can go along way to eliminating the Dem streak. Appears that party has no problem spending other peoples money then goes around and cries that those who have worked hard and accumulated lots of money should give it up to the government for more lavish spending.

    • Rachel says:

      Ooooo……we righties are “petty & mean” for pointing out how the Chicago Hillbillies think they are royalty overspending our money on nonsense, while Americans suffer. And WE are the mean ones. What a moron you are, Lily.

  20. Rachel says:

    I hope the Chicago Grifters puke up their dinner that WE paid for, like they make ME puke.
