Ouch!

This is in today’s NY Daily News, which is the liberal tabloid in NY

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

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.

That’s got to hurt. Read the rest, as she does a nice job of cataloging the craziness.

Again, how they spend their own money I care not the slightest; but when we the taxpayers have to pick up the outrageous tabs for their gallivanting about then yes, indeed I do object.

  1. Loved the title line under the photo: “First Lady Michelle Obama smiles while she visits Marbella, southern Spain.”

    All expenses paid, and a clutch of hefty men sprinting to your every demand; I’d be smiling too!

    These people are trash. Pure and simple. Not one iota of regard for anyone but themselves, not one crumb of remorse for spending your money on things like this.

    Ol’ Michelle was disbarred in ’93 for insurance fraud and the only thing she learned is she’ll get her entitlements some other way.

    Damn them both.
