    What does it matter to you what the Obamas do in their own time with their own money minus security costs of course.

    I thought the number was 250 000? Someone wanna get that story straight?

    Meeting the king and queen of nations is always gonna happen, guess you don't like improving relations with allies?
    **** that **** bitch, Bush's wife never acted like Marie Antoinette, this is the type of **** that revolutions are made out of. The masses are starving and that ugly bitch is living it up like a ****ing queen and bringing her friends along for the ride on the taxpayer dime. Let them eat cake!

    Hello? <tap tap>

    Redress? Post #91. What exactly is it that the FLOTUS is doing that requires 24 staffers again?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Did she take 30 dresses too?

    So different from Laura Bush...

    "Laura Bush, Entourage Tour Europe

    BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) _ Thirty different outfits, 15 traveling staffers, dozens of Secret Service agents, scores of embassy personnel, seven pricey gifts, one professional hair stylist.

    That's what it takes to see Laura Bush through 15 days overseas.

    The no-nonsense first lady, lauded in the French press for her simple style, has appeared during this inaugural overseas mission of hers to be unreconciled to, or at least self-conscious of, the fuss of public life.

    Leaving Washington on the same Air Force jet often used by Vice President Dick Cheney, she wryly asked her traveling party: "Did you all have to pack 30 outfits, …
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    So Laura Bush did it with less staff, less SS, and no friends....Oh, and it was business, not vacation....Thanks.

Seriously viva la revolution bitches, Marie Antoinette over here should get the ****ing Guillotine.
    Another point is the Obamas for a couple of weeks now have lectured the public to vacation on the gulf coast if they go anywhere at all. Pres Obama is very vocal about what everybody should do to support their fellow Americans but it doesn't translate to his family.

    I'm sorry but trying to compare the French Revolution and This is one of the mutest points ever. Lets go back to the Nazi Comparison, far more closer to home

    The "masses" aren't starving...

    Economically things are bad, but please, try to stay somewhere in the realm of reality.

    So your suggesting Americans raid the White House because we have it so tough on our iPhones, and central air?
    "Were going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thats crazy." -Reagan
