I know dissing Moochelle is a cheap shot and not very news worthy but it is very symptomatic of the corruption and cronyism which runs rampant and is so pervasive in this administration.
And quite frankly I am so sick and tried of the president and progressives lies and distortions, the demagoguery, MORE BAD legislation (jobs bill no one wants not even senate demoRats), and the constant class warfare I need to look for some humor amid all the HORROR.
It seems the more and more one reads or see's people of note saying that it is now not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN the economy will collapse at this rate.
Richard Kiyosaki said it best "build the five 'G's"
Ground (real estate)
Gold (physical gold and silver reserves)
Grub (food supplies and water)
Gas (oil and gasoline sources)
GUNS (lots of guns and ammunition)
Back to Moochelle:
Earlier this week two more articles appeared mocking Moochelle's spending habits of course at the tax payers.
"Michelle Obama's taxpayer-funded spending is an embarrassment for the white House" by Nile Gandiner
"Michelle Obama's Africa Trip Cost More Than $424,142" from White House Watch U.S. News and World Report
You have to love the nerve/balls of these people.
They have no regard for what is right only how smart they are at gaming the system.
Progressives are always trying to figure out how to game the system and push their agenda after all THE ENDS ALWAYS JUSTIFY THE MEANS in their minds.
This allows them to rationalize any of their actions.
Anyway it seems the costs of the Moochelle and family/entourage (minus the president) vacation to South Africa and Botswana have finally come somewhat to light.
Taxpayers doled out well over $424,000 for the flights alone according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch.
This does not even include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members.
She and her husband should be held to account for this outrage.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton notes:
"This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business. This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our overextended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry loose this information."
There should be SOME outrage from the media but NOTHING.
I think under the circumstances of the economy the massive debt caused by her husband as well as his constant demagoguery and class warfare that we are inundated with you would think there would be some sort of embarrassment coming from the White House but none no remorse, they are royalty and entitled to what ever they want.
Funny how their entitlement sensibilities are inflated by POWER.
But what should we expect from the food stamp president and his maul.
It is also a symbol of the gulf between the taxpayer-subsidised, privileged lifestyle of America's ruling elites in Washington, compared to the tens of millions of hard-working Americans who are struggling to pay the mortgage, hold on to their homes, put food on the table for their families, and simply make ends meet.
The founders warned us about a "political class" and we have been lulled into exactly that situation.
Progressivism is exemplified by the LEFT but their are RINO's on the RIGTH (John McCain cough cough).
We must stick to our principals at all cost or be doomed to the continuation of this miserable regime.
