Remember when President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush spent about a billion dollars on lavish vacations?

Yeah, me neither.

But here’s what I do remember: Libs having nervous breakdowns, shrieking hysterically whenever the Bushes returned to their own home in Texas, for some R & R.

And now, King Barry and Queen Mooch.

Moochin’ off ‘We The People.’

Via Brietbart: Michelle Obama Riverdances Through Dublin to the Tune of $7,921,638

….Most recently, when reviewing the Obama family travel log, Judicial Watch obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, revealing that President Obama’s June 2013 trip to Belfast, Ireland, including a Dublin sightseeing side trip by Michelle Obama, her daughters, and her entourage, cost the taxpayers $7,921,638.66….

• According to the Department of Air Force documents, the flights to, from, and around Ireland for the June 17 – 19, 2013 trip totaled 33.6 hours at $228,288 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,670,476.80 (These records came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)

• According to the DHS documents, the total cost for “security and/or other services” for the Dublin side-trip by Michelle Obama and her entourage was $251,161.86, including $55,004.85 at the Shelbourne Hotel and $70,855.44 at the Westbury Hotel. Vehicle rental charges were $114,721. (These records also came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedon of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)

…is it really necessary for the First Lady to drop $3,300 per night on her hotel suite for any reason at all when taxpayers are picking up the tab?

….The Obamas love to wax philosophical about the subject of transparency, but when it comes to covering up their abuse of taxpayer resources, their secrecy knows no bounds.

    Sheesh–I’d FORGOTTEN about Ireland. South Africa and China sorta paralyzed my brain cells! But I sure remember the Dems hating on George and Laura for trips to THEIR property!

    Really, Shifra. What are they supposed to do, go home and dodge bullets in Chicago? Dropping $8 million in taxpayers $$ in Ireland just makes sense. #LiberalLogic

    I think they get a map of the world out and take turns throwing darts. Whoever lands on the most expensive place wins! Fun for them.

    Golf not included in the cost estimate.

    You know if they are admitting that the trip cost $ 7,921,638 . Then the actual cost of the Trip, more than likely, REALLY COST twice the amount admitted to. The price was probably $ 15,843,276 which is double of the admitted cost. They lie about everything else, what makes anyone think that they are not lying about the cost of this trip….I’m just sayin’

    And you better believe Mooches ass will milk as many trips possible the next 2 1/2 years. Running up the food tab even more than the travel expenses.

    Re the Obamas and money, I had missed this; http://www.nationalreview.com/article/376208/powerpoint-disease-nathaniel-zelinsky

    “…a daylong conference the Obama administration hosted at the White House in March for young heirs to family fortunes…the day consisted of meetings between “the country’s wealthiest and most influential clans” and senior administration officials on how the rich could best direct their philanthropic giving. Breakout workshops on sexy topics like climate change…”
