Michelle Obama Criticized as “Modern-day Marie Antoinette” Over her Spanish Vacation.
Marie Antoinette was the Queen of France that spent the franc’s faster than her old man Louis the XVI could print then. See the similarity.
Both she and her husband were executed later in their lives for crimes against their country after the monarchy was abolished in 1792. Wait, I have something in my throat.
Tell me how Miss-shell and her old man could have “the face”, as we say in Italian, to preach to the country about tightening the belt and saving money the way they are going through our coins??
These people are blatant self-centered people and have no concern about anyone but themselves.
Mrs. What’s her name is flying back and forth to wherever she goes using Air force 2 at the cost of $ 11,351.00 per HOUR. Where is it written that Mrs. Prez has permission to abuse the system the way she has? Maybe it is comparable to the old saying “she comes with the baggage”. I just made that up.
It has been estimated that as of July 2011 the Pres’s travels in Air Force 1 has cost the tax payers 100 million dollars since he took office. Naturally a lot of that was on official business but there is a multitude of un-official business that could have been eliminated.
This last vacation to Hawaii will cost the US tax payers over $ 4,000,000.00 dollars that the USA does not have to squander because Mrs. O didn’t feel like staying here on the mainland where all the common citizens vacation. That figure could have been cut by 85 – 90%. It is unconscionable that this is permitted. A person would think that anyone in their position would be embarrassed to deliberately “signify” the way they do.
I don’t think that anyone is trying to deny them a vacation but it should be a reasonable one and with-in the limitations of the countries finances.
It is my sincere belief that these “lack of concern” selfish excursions that the first family are taking are deliberate and they are thumbing their noses in every citizens face. A genuine first family would not take advantage of their positions the way they have.
“All of you all people have to tighten your belts and do without so it is possible for my family and me to squander your hard earned tax dollars doing whatever we want”. “You don’t have a choice in the matter, we are the First Family”.
