    Well you forgot toput in "while on vacation" in your previous statement. So the fault is yours. And I agree... "while on vacation" she doesn't need an office or situation room. Is there anything the progressive socialist left won't defend?

    I would agree --- she has things to do. Enough for 24 staffers? That's a lot of things to do... and a lot of taxpayer money to do it... wonder how she has the time for so many vacations with so many things to do? Tell me, what's she doing that's so important --- do you know?

    It goes without saying, there is already a massive topic on this but what about when the Bush twins were in tabloids partying it out while Bush is running around talking about what a great Christian he is and being a recovered alcoholic? How does that look to people?

    1st show where 75k was spent of our money per day in a recession for a 1st lady to galavant with 40 of her closest friends in a foreign country.
    Sorry Rev. This was misreported. She was only will about 4 friends. Mrs. Nesbitt ( long time Chicago friend)was one. All the rooms were for about 40- 60 of those protecting her. They were on the tax payers dime.

    No I think this is all deserved honestly. When you consider the 8 years of comedic gold that was wuubya, turd blossom, and the emperor just let them vent it out. No harm in nagging.
