Let Them Eat Cake Again and Again and...
August 23, 2011
It looks like Michele Obama is screaming “Let them eat cake—again” more with her actions than any words she’s been spouting lately.
First there’s a disclaimer. I am fully aware this is an article from the National Enquirer. A poor news source one might claim. Noted. The problem with this story is, it has been duly verified via other news sources.
According to numerous sources, she has already racked up $10 million dollars in “vaca” spending this year alone.
The extravagant spending for frivolities such as vacations by the Obama’s seems to have reached unprecedented proportions compared to other Presidents and First Ladies. The evidence seems to point to the fact that while Presidents and their First Ladies do need to take some time off, the Obama’s seem to take the most costly work-breaks of anyone before them.
Well you have to spend some of your hubby’s hard earned money you know…especially when it’s on the taxpayer’s dime…
An “educational” excursion for the kiddies is always a must: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/annapolis/2010/08/michelle_obama_daughter_visit.html
Another little jaunt with some friends this time last year:
The latest of course is their $50K per day extended vacation at Martha’s Vineyard this August of 2011.
The Obama’s could choose to go literally anywhere in the world. For example, the President likes to golf (ya think?). Wouldn’t a trip to northern Michigan’s Traverse City have been not only a more prudent choice, but a far less expensive one? He would have been helping the ailing Michigan economy with the worst joblessness in the country, he would have had a great, world-renowned golf course to play on and scored a political coup all at the same time.
Yet they chose a liberal, elitist, bastion of intolerance. Their island of choice, used for the second time by the Obama’s, at one time frowned upon the presence of Jews and blacks…oh wait, Mr. Obama is only ½ black so that explains it… Yet the media overall decides not only to ignore this statement about the past doings of this fav Democratic/liberal hang-out, but also ignore the impression this gives Americans as a whole. Martha’s Vineyard is costing us, the taxpayer $50K per day, not including Michele’s spending on designer labels, private boat trips for their girls and other such nonsense.
In times like these, appearances mean everything. The amount that they spend means everything. There are people suffering in this country, in record numbers. Couldn’t they have found a vacation spot for a little less than 50K a night?!
Let them eat cake.
Who would have expected less from this crew?
