    Re: Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette

    Perhaps it could be that the Obamas, who seem to fancy themselves more along the lines of international celebrities than actual leaders, espouse a different view of sacrifice. When Michelle Obama accompanied her husband to Copenhagen along with best buddy Oprah Winfrey, she billed the trip - an ultimately unsuccessful bid to bring the Olympics to Chicago - as follows: "As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the President to come for these few days, so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home."

    A quick jaunt to Denmark is a sacrifice? What portraits in courage!
    She didn't say that it was a huge sacrifice for her, but that other people were saying it was, and she also was simply pointing the work that others had put into it. She was acknowledging the hard work of others and the dumb**** that wrote this trash spun it like a record.

    The Obama modus operandi is becoming clear.
    Are you sure it's the Obama's MO thats becoming clear and not the author's?
    From lavish trips to Spain to reportedly flying Bo, the President's Portuguese water dog, on a separate aircraft to vacation with them in Maine, to a date night in New York City that perhaps cost nearly $100,000, their idea of austerity is really just the lap of luxury, at least for ordinary folks.

    Damn, and she even opted to throw in the old stupid lie about getting a separate plane for Bo to follow them on vacation. This article would be best used as toilet paper.

    nah, I have asked you several times in response to posts you make where you were the last 8 years and you never answer. I thought it kinda funny you would ask me a question like that.

    Not going to go off on a rant about The Obama family.

    What I will say is that government vehicles and staff should not be supplied to cover the private shindigs of political leaders.

    They aren't entitled to that kind of sweetness from us.
    It creates the appearance of royalty.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Anyone who believes that kind of junk from a politician, should smack themselves in the head with a tack hammer.

    Normally I wouldn't give a ****. I really don't care what rich people do - if I was rich I'd be doing the same thing.

    But the Air Force One and Secret Service lodgings tick me off. And this isn't the first time they've squandered our tax dollars while proclaiming that "we need to raise taxes to cover government deficit spending"

    If it was 100% their own hard earned money I wouldn't give a damn. . . but it's not.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
