Remembering Obama’s ‘elaborate’ taxpayer funded Paris vacation
The big story Monday afternoon? “Romney reminisces about vacations in France.”
How dare he!
So what were those “elaborate vacations”?
It turns out, at least one of them was (you guessed it!) in Paris.
In June 2009, President Obama and his family took a “Paris vacation” (He was also there on business — to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day.) But the vacation included a shopping trip for members of the First Family in the “upscale” St. Germain neighborhood.
The Obamas also reportedly dined at famed chef Alain Ducasse’s restaurant at the top of the Eiffel Tower.
(What an elitist.)
Let’s be honest; this is all silly. But what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. And at least Romney’s “elaborate vacations” weren’t paid for (in part) by the taxpayers.
