While political critism heats up in an election year, some are saying that Mrs. Obama is like Marie Antoinette. The Obamas take expensive vacations and tell Americans what to eat and how we should save money on light bulbs while they play and romp.
This president has played golf 90 times since coming to office. The President, the First Lady, and their kids went to Spain which allegedly cost us 10 million dollars, and then they went toÂ Hawaii which cost us over 4 million dollars. Mrs. Obama has expensive taste.
The problem is not so much the cost but the perceived extravagance. I heard the whole bill is around 40 million dollars for Mrs. Obama to take her family and friends on a wonderful vacation, but Americans are paying for it, while we lose our homes, jobs, and self-worth, the Obamas who made 5.5 million dollars last year, pretend to care about the people.
I read also that she is being compared to Marie Antoinette. Let them eat cake. Let the Obama adminstration handle our economy, stop the wars, and stay home.
Tell the Obamas they are in the White House to help us, not to help themselves to world wind vacations with our money and their friends.
