    I think I know why the Chinese are pissed off. Michelle Obama has been stiffing the hotel workers.

    Doing a little research, the Obama's are just not lousy tippers but have stiffed waitress, waitresses, bellhops in the past.

    Before Obama became POTUS, Barack stiffed taxi drivers in Chicago but this is just hearsay. So we'll let that one slide.

    If I were a taxi driver and saw Barack or Michelle and definitely Michelle's mother waving down a cab, I sure wouldn't stop and pick up the fare.

    If they want to not come off as snooty, they should fly commercial and stay at the Ramada.

    But this then reaches to the heart of the matter, people who weren't rich shouldn't become president, should they? That's the basis for posting stories like this, for the reason Obama is criticised for being a "community organiser" and having no experience, because he doesn't come from a rich corporate background. Elitism is alive and well.

    A hotel room that costs 8 grand a night has snooty written all over it.

    Obama wasn't rolling pennies for gas. He may not be worth as much as other presidents, but he damn sure didn't have the struggles that most of us have.

    And if money was all that mattered, John Kerry would've won in a landslide. He turned "windfall marriage" into an art form.

    Just not any 77 year old lady, a grumpy old lady from the South Side of Chicago.


    As for "people who weren't rich shouldn't become President," voters from now on should take that in to consideration. But no way should another community organizer should ever be elected as POTUS.

    What were the Democrat Party thinking ?

    I found it amusing that VP Biden had to change his hotel because the one that Michelle and girls are staying in, the same one that Biden planned to use, was deemed too expensive. How's that for fairness? Like King Henry the Second stated..."It's good to be the king!" *or queen*

    No, the purpose of this thread is to point out that our President's family should show some ****ing class when they represent us outside the country. If that old bag can't understand that, she shouldn't be taken along.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
