    M. Obama’s China trip taxing hotel employees: ‘We can’t wait for this to be over"

    Oh, boy. What great ambassadors.


    Employees at the Chinese hotel hosting the first family are reportedly “fed up” with the Obama’s high-maintenance antics, and say they can’t wait for them to leave.

    Staff workers at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang hotel told the Daily Mail that First lady Michelle Obama, her mother and two daughters have apparently outstayed their welcome. They have been staying in the $8,350-pre-night presidential suite in Beijing since Thursday.


    According to one concierge staff member, the Obama women have inconvenienced “pretty much everyone” and the first lady’s mother, Marian Robinson, has been “barking at the staff” since she arrived.

    That does it. I am absolutely not voting for Obama in 2016.

    Oh, don't kid us. You would vote for Michelle, if she ran.

    How's is this even breaking news? I would wager that everyone is inconvenienced when the first family goes anywhere. I am sure the hotel knew what they were getting into. I wonder how long it will be before the hotel starts advertising their hotel as a place where the first family stayed?

    Okay.

    First off the first family causes this kind of disturbance wherever they go... in Halifax there's only one major highway in or out of the city and the whole thing was shut down during the G7 Summit of '95 when Clinton arrived.

    So the disturbances to the hotel are not an anomaly.

    Secondly an anonymous concierge... COME ON!

    Thirdly... I work with alot of Mainland Chinese Tour Operators, their idea of customer service is not exactly the same as the Wests, believe me.

    They're paying $8300 a night, and the staff is complaining??? Give me a break. No tips for them.

    You don't think that $8300 a night is going to these staffers though do you?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    I am surprised it took this long to post a negative about the Obama's trip.

    Yes, I'm such an idiot that's what I think.
