Michelle O's "Let Them Eat Cake" Spain Vacation

Recommended Posts

Hi

I just hope WE were not paying for this trip. If she wants to take her buddies, she should be paying herself, right?

And why Spain? There's a recession going on, why can't she spend the money here and help our own hoteliers and restaurateurs? I mean, what's wrong with Biloxi? Not good enough for ya, huh?

I totally agree that it's their money. Both of them have law degrees and have worked in many high-paying positions, so it's not like they're having the US foot the bill. As for the Secret Service, whatever. All living first families get that service, so I don't want to hear about the complaints there.

Now, now. I'm 99.9% sure that WE are footing the bill for this trip and all the others as they tour the world.

I doubt they use debit cards either. B)

Round it up to 100%. Sure, Michelle, ma belle probably used her own stash to buy momentos of her fine Spanish vacation. But jabe, redrum, et al, foot the bill for Air Force II, secret service protection and accomodations on this haughty trip. Pull a stunt like this during her husband's birthday?

Take her posse with her? What the fuck? Vacations are well deserved and well earned, but in light of Obama's economy, spend our tax dollars at your leisure here. Great message this sends.

And to think, Bush got whacked for taking vacations to his own property in Crawford, Texas.

The mainstream media sucks big donkey rods.

Well if CBS news is to be believed, Michelle Obama (God what a great gig being First Lady is) pays for her own personal expenses and her friends flew commercial...............but security details which follow are of course paid with tax dollars.

The story starts at the 10 minute mark roughly.

Unemployment benefits have been extended again because nobody can find work but Ms. O takes a Spanish vacation. Sleep well.

:hysterical:

How amusing that Mrs O has chosen Spain for her holiday. In England, Spain is generally viewed as a low-rent kind of place to go.

Is it really?

First I've heard of that.

Hi Bigdan

A propos birdy poo, I once had a budgerigar which I occasionally allowed to fly free in my loft conversion, which also served as my music room and contained my extensive vinyl collection. However, the ungrateful little bastard used to shit everywhere, and it was a great relief when he eventually popped his clogs.

Despite three subsequent house moves, I still occasionally pull out an album and find his deposits encrusted on the top of an album, or even inside. Gatefolds are the worst. I prised open Steely Dan's Aja last night, and the top paragraphs on both sides of the centrefold are now completely obliterated.

You can just imagine the caveats I'll have to mention if I ever try to sell my collection on ebay. 'Record plays perfectly, but extensive bird-shit damage to cover'.

which reminds me; Obama has a press conference and shows up in a brand new designer suit. He steps to the rostrum and says "I'll take the first question" and points to a reporter in the front row. "Let me start by saying that's a nice suit you're wearing Mr. President - Armani? "

"No, I payed for this one myself"

(da dump) I'm here all week folks and don't forget to tip your waitress. B)

I suppose it all depends on which socio-economic stratum one inhabits, Knebby.

I guess being in the House of Lords like you puts Spain way beneath you?

For those outside the UK - Spain is NOT considered a lower class place to take a holiday by anyone in the UK but idiots.

Any intelligent person would take great delight in the beauty of Seville, Madrid, Barcelona ,Asturias, Alhambra ,Segovia, Huesca, Andalucia, Ibiza, Lanzarote - to name but a few of the wonders of that place.

Perhaps you need to go somewhere other than Torremolinos and Benidorm? - though both do have their charms ( ask Page and Plant ).

I'm not in the House of Lords, Knebby. I'm just a humble barrister specialising in criminal prosecution at the moment, though who's to say where I'll be in 20 years' time. I don't like Spain because the cuisine is appalling, and the people are uncouth - which is probably why the country appeals to the low-brow, small-ticket sector of British society. A home from home, as it were. Personally, I favour SE Asia. I even met Jimmy in Pattaya the other year. Charming fellow, and still very popular with the ladies.

I've been to Costa del Sol and it's a beautiful place to visit. I think she should see as much of the world as fast as she can because she's married to a one term President.

Yes, that lottery ticket comes with an expiration date....

BTW, to whomever mentioned the high-paying jobs...He is a multimillionaire by way of his books. Neither of them were going to set the world afire, you know what I'm saying?? And they certainly aren't trust fund babies.

Have fun.
