I know a lot of people voted for Obama to prove there wasn't a race issue. I really got to hope people prove they're not stupid in by re-electing him in 2012. Most people I know have been struggling just to stay fed.

Not surprising, but what DOES surprise me is, regarding restaurants, why the restaurant owners don't just give it to them on the house. The free pub has gotta be worth more than the food.

Well, if a daily mail is reporting that the national enquire is reporting coming from a secret source in the white house, then surely it must be true.

I heard she also gave a million dollars to batboy


I quite liked the part in the article about the "outrage" of her staying in a 5 star hotel with alcohol..the outrage!
She should be staying in a holiday inn express with a can of sprite, like Laura Bush did!

$10 million is a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the TRILLIONS the Obama administration has wastefully spent and tied up in obligations, so relatively speaking this is NOTHING really.

Go Obamas


2012

How life as the President of the U.S. and being First Lady seems to be like royalty. 10 million for vacations. Life is a true blessing at the point.

Both parties are guilty of this crap. It sickens me.

I hope this doesn't turn into a left/right brawl and stays in the proper context, public officials spending public money for personal benefit is unethical and a crime.

Highly unethical when Obama does it, Highly unethical when Bush did it and even worse when it is their un-elected wives and family.

I hope people can stick the the real issue, spending public money on personal benefit is wrong. I do not have much faith that this will occur though. Get ready for the Obama apologist and the Obama haters to completely ignore the big picture.

We are ruled by an elitist political class that is unapologetic and out of touch.

So is this the same quality investigative journalism that said that Obama's trip to India was gonna cost something like 2 billion a day and take up 1/3 of the US Navy?



Gotta love tabloid journalism.

I wonder, is the Daily Mail owned by NewsCorp?

Wouldn't that be like a gift? Like a bribe?

They won already, and are doing quite well as you can see... So you are absolutely correct.

"Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", - (let them eat cake) replied Marie Antoinette when told, My queen, the people have no bread . And so Michelle Obama is the Marie Antoinette of the 21st century. Will history repeat itself?

She's already changed the way the school lunch programs work, to provide "healthier" foods.. So in essence... Let them eat cake, but make it fat free and sugar free, and cheap.

Don't even get my 11 year-old son started about Michelle Obama's new school lunch program. The boy gets downright irate when I ask him if he wants to "eat or carry" anymore. Apparently, the new, better for the children food tastes like crap. He mourns the loss of his school's wonderful chicken patty. In his own words- "They took away the only thing left to look forward to."
He's a bit dramatic, but the way they have cut back on music, recess, and art, the kids really don't have much to look forward to anymore. I guess it teaches them to be good little slaves with no added enjoyment in life.
I'm glad the politicians have such a great time spending "our" money. I know we all have such a great time earning it for them.

Seeing as people like to quote things historical here, I say off with her head. I don't care if your democrat, republican or in between, in this economy with all the hardships the average person is enduring this is just another example of being irresponsible and just plain not giving a damn. Now if the times were better and the average person was actually not living paycheck to pay check then by all means live the lavish lifestyle. Back to reality though....
