American Thinker: President Obama is living the life of a former king, vacationing these days at a palatial estate in the south of France. At what point has he made enough? Silly us for asking.
Daily Mail has a report with a lot of photographs:
Former US president Barack Obama and his family arrived in Avignon in the south of France for a week’s holiday just days after they were pictured celebrating daughter Sasha’s graduation from high school.
The Obamas are reportedly staying at a luxurious 18th century farmhouse on Bathelasse island, near the Provencal city.
Barack, 57, his wife Michelle, 55, and their two daughters Sasha, 18, and Malia, 20, will relax at the palatial Le Mas des Poiriers, rented at 55,000 euros for the week, according to a report by Le Parisien.
The two former first daughters were seen out and about Saturday after jetting into the Provencal city on Friday.
Security detail from the Gard regional police as well as the US Secret Service will surround the residence as the former first family visit the area.
The property sits on 65 acres – providing seclusion and privacy for the Obamas during their stay.
Why the taxpayers should pay for this via the security guard details, as if the man can’t afford any of his own after all the payoffs he’s now collecting from speeches and book deals is rather a side issue.
The problem is that this comes as he’s engaging in quite a few shenanigans on his own around Europe. read more
