Well I believe we should be worrying about other things than Michelle spending money lavishly on a trip, wat about the animals that are being abused, or the crimes that are bein committed or the terror threats.... I believe people should mind their buisness about what others do, if she wants to spend money to have a good time let her, so what..& do u really know whether this is coming out of tax payers money like really?!...I've seen michelle do good deeds & I know she does care about others...Marie Antoinette didn't care about anyone else but her self and she spent money on expensive stuff everyday if u knew ur global history...I don't know about this world anymore, everyday we jus seem to be crumbling b4 our eyes....

i was just thinking the same thing.
I haven't had a vacation in 5 years.
My parents haven't either.

It seems every other week they are on vacation
somewhere. The Biltmore in NC not too long ago.
Then there was another one in Maine last month.
And now Spain !!!!!
I guess living in the WH getting your nails done
every day and foot massages 3 times a week
can get real stressful. Meanwhile millions of Americans
are jobless, hungry and homeless.
Great image ya'll are projecting in the WH.

What makes these folks in the WH
better than me and my parents ????
Not a DAMN THING !!!!

Fix America, then you go on vacation,
til then .... u suffer with us.

U folks make me sick to my stomach.

Yes I read what I wrote. Facepalm yourself Groucho ...

She zipped thru the Gulf for a few hours, told other people to come there and spend some money, then when it was her family time for a lavish vacation ...

You're intentionally not getting it.

She may have went down there, but the planes engines hadn't even cooled off before she got back on the plane. They went on "vacation" last week and shut down half of a resort town. Spain this week, wonder what the schedule looks like next week.


Yep. My husband was there for two weeks helping out and moving his aunt. How long was Mrs. Obama there? And what exactly did she do to help out the people?

The Obamas are ALWAYS on vacation. They are always going somewhere. Yes I'm jealous and angry. I'd like to have a nice vacation too.

The title of this thread should be "Anger artificially inflated as rich housewife takes a vacation to Spain at her own expense"

Because that is what it boils down to.

The Obama's weren't poor when they got to the white house.

She is not an elected official, she is essentially a housewife.

I swear, if these people fart, you all would jump on the global warming bandwagon just to blame it all on the Obama's gas!

Let Michelle have a holiday - paid for by herself or her husband.

How much does the Pres earn?

Save taxpayer dollars for taxpayers, not fat cats.

All politicians should take heed.

Taxpayer dollars are for schools, hospitals, roads, welfare etc - not for already rich people to squander.

A closer eye needs to be kept on the spending of public servants. They would not like to hear themselves described as servants, but that is what they are.

She's protecting her kids from the Jonas Brothers with that entourage. Obama might send in the predator drones in order to keep away those brothers.

Aren't conservatives the ones that constantly say eff the poor?

You guys are whining like a bunch of LIBERALS!

Suck it up and get a job and maybe you can go to Spain on a vacation!

What, so now you all are a bunch of SOCIALISTS? You want the government to buy you all European vacations?

Don't you just love the hypocrisy? They hate on liberals for advocating "MARXISM IN DISGUISE" and for being "COMMUNISTS" and "TRAITORS" and then, the second they see someone spending money they rightfully have(isn't that the whole point of resisting socialism, that you're supposed to "earn" what you get or whatever? That's the "American Way," right?), suddenly it's all about how many poor people could be fed with that (private) money or how many people could use that money! What, is it only "spreading the wealth around" if it's spreading the wealth to poor people who aren't you?


Right-wing hypocrisy at its finest.

Which presidency since Woodrow Wilson's administration has worked???



Umm, most of the administrations between now and wilson have worked(not perfectly, or even close) but, i mean, how can you even make that kind of statement, or was it just a myth that the United States has been a superpower for the last 100 or so years. Or were you just being facetious?

So wait, this pisses people off?
But when the previous pres took more vacations than any president in the history of America that was ok?
Maaan people really are asses sometimes.

You know a year ago things like this would piss me off inmensly, the whole hypocracy thing. But now I just laugh, the only sane reaction to posts like those I can think of. (Those above you)

It is absolutly incredible to withness.

It is like seing a whale with your own two eyes. You hear about it and alot of people seen it. But witnessing it youself is just awesome.


People don't seem to care about people, just about what the think is right. No wonder the world is in the shape it is. Instead of actually solving problems people are just maken more to spite the otherside. This isn't just a richtwing trade, the left is as guilty of it as the right is.
Have fun with this uttely unimportant crap, have fun pissing yourself off about crap like this that in de bigsceem of things means totally nothing.
Great way of spending your time though.

Oh silly me, what what was I tinkin'

[edit on 6-8-2010 by Danbones]


Danbones, when are people going to realize that Michelle Obama is like Barack? As her swimsuit said,"It's all about me." Obama is all about Obama. Two peas in a pod.

The Obamas are such poseurs. Egalitarian? Budget cutting and fiscal restraint are for the "small" people, us, US.

I see the OO's (Obama Operatives) on this thread are busy defending the wife of their Fearless Leader.
