    Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette

    Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette on a glitzy Spanish vacation

    Quote(Sacrifice is something that many Americans are becoming all too familiar with during this economic downturn. It was a key theme in President Obama's inaugural address to the nation, and he's referenced it numerous times when lecturing the country on how to get back on its feet.

    But while most of the country is pinching pennies and downsizing summer sojourns - or forgoing them altogether - the Obamas don't seem to be heeding their own advice. While many of us are struggling, the First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her "closest friends." According to CNN, the group is expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms, more than a third of the lodgings at the 160-room resort. Not exactly what one would call cutting back in troubled times.)

    Although I am by no means what might be called an 'Obama fan", even Obama fans must see the incredible differences, between what Obama calls for the rest of America, compared to how his wife spends and spends and spends US Taxpayer funds on her own hedonistic pleasures.

    I sincerely hope the FLOTUS has a great trip in Spain. She promotes positive living and the American dream of prosperity. (text ripped from the poll)

    You can't blame the Obama's for living it up. They know this is their only term and they need to make the best of it.

    Don't put any serious money on it, you'll likely lose your shirt.

    Yea, there is nothing like a fat chick telling everyone how to eat healthy. That would be like a smoker running health care. Also, the American dream has nothing to do with government dependence.
    Failure is made possible by liberty.

    It's unfortunate that this has happened, however similar pieces accusing Bush and family of doing similar stuff (think anytime Michael Moore bitched about Bush) were later proved to be very different than what they appeared. Typically trips like this there is something to politically gain or business is still being conducted although we can't honestly say here I guess.

    Um... aren't you the same people who usually defend the rich from "unfair taxation" and the like? Why do you suddenly care what the Obama family does with their personal money?

    Umm using Airforce Two def is not personal money man. That's my money, however as I said before, similar gaffes have happened in the past with presidents and family, just right now people are far more touchy about it and rightfully so.

    Transporting and housing the estimated 70 Secret Service agents who will flank the material girl will cost the taxpayers a pretty penny.


    . Method of transportation? Air Force Two.


    Aparrently this poster missed this, in a failed attempt at a strawman.
