Anger mounts over Michelle Obama's Spanish holiday

UK Daily Mail

Michelle Obama today faced a fresh wave of attacks over her lavish break in Spain with 40 friends which has cost U.S. taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds.

The First Lady has been lambasted for her extravagance at a time when the economy is still struggling. One blogger went so far as to brand her a modern-day Marie Antoinette.
The exact cost of the trip is unclear as Mrs Obama, 46, and her friends are footing personal expenses – including accommodation at Marbella’s five-star Hotel Villa Padierna – themselves.

But the taxpayer will have to pick up the tab for the First Lady’s 68-strong security detail, her personal staff – and the use of presidential jet Air Force Two.

    MRS. CLINTON HAD TWO STAFF ASSISTANCE…. MRS BUSH HAD ONE ASSISTANT…..
    MRS OBAMA HAS A STAFF OF 23…. WE ARE IN HARD TIME AND HER EXAMPLE IS TO JET AROUND THE WORLD…. AT OUR EXPENSE….
    IF SHE WAS THOUGHTFUL AND CONCERNED SHE WOULD FIRE HER STAFF, STAY HOME AND PREPARE A HOME COOKED DINNER FOR HER HUSBAND AND FAMILY….. SHE IS A POOR EXAMPLE TO ALL OF US.

  • This is beyond extreme extravagance; an ongoing continual vacation by this family.

    It is beyond reason that the Obama family can be for us – the people – and do what they are doing. How is it that Mrs Obama has Air Force 2 at her disposal? That is for goverent business – not his wife. Who is paying for rooms at $2500 per night. Who do the Obamas think they are working for – the citizens or a special group including themselves. We – the people – are very distressed – to know the answer-
    despite all the platitudes the Present puts forth.

    Sadly nothing these two do surprises me…..they consider noone. They are for self and self alone….but then would I expect such royalty to stand before me in attire like I wear daily? Obama to wear a suit bought from a warehouse? Or maybe even Goodwill?? That would be a site wouldn't it? To lower themselves to the level that the poor are in this country. To relate to them, to consider their feelings…dream on I say….they are above us all, we don't have the intelligence to understand what they do so why consider us? Snobs are snobs and will always be snobs. Honey drips from the mouth, all the right words to the faces but turn and hear the truth…they don't relate because they don't belong…to understand our plight they would have to lower themselves to our level………wow, what a concept!!!
