    Remember her husband has lectured us about going to Las Vegas during a time of recession.

    These are the people that claim to be champions of the poor and oppressed yet they party with billionaires in mansions across the world.

    What exactly is she taking a vacation from? Her tough job dancing at parties?

    Can you imagine if Laura Bush or, to use a democrat, Eleanor Roosevelt had pulled this crap?
    She's a bigger hypocrite tha her husband. It's not just an insensitive, arrogant action in light of all the economic dislocation in the country. It's also the tremendous cost to the taxpayers for all the extra security.
    The first indication of this arrogance came when she and her husband took a Marine helicopter to Manhattan at commuting time for dinner and a play.
    This is an outrage.
    This is also the same moose who lectures us about healthy diets while wolfing down a huge cheeseburger.
    The arrogance and hypocrisy are nothing short of sickening.

    I thought sunday was a vacation.
    Actually the last one I was on was my honeymoon (a long time ago)working class people can't afford vacations.
    The only vacation I will ever get is when I drop dead from working all the time

    Let's see, this year so far , I have taken 4 vacations. Each one was 24 hours long. If I keep this rate up , I still won't get all my vacation time in , once again.

    I hope so very much that they all leave the White House, and soon. They do not love this country nor the people that made it great. They were not even proud of it until they could call themselves "leaders". They are not patriots. I am tired of thinking that we have paid for their jaunts, vacations, and holidays for all of them including the grandmother!!!! Let them eat cake. By the way, Michelle seems to have gained weight from all of this vacationing she better stop so that she is not a hypocrite. Isn’t she championing a lifestyle change for kids. Another, do as I say, not as I do. AARRGGHH!

    Maybe we should get that government idiot who keeps going around the schools and harassing the kids and their parents about their school lunches and send her after the First Lady and her kids. Michelle,s waistline has indeed expanded a bit. If that actaully happened, I wonder how long the federal food crusader would stay employed.

    I would much rather that she was out spending money than making policy. Where in the Constitution does it say the First Lady has any say in anything? I wish she would take a permanent vacation and take Barack with her. Just like I wish that steroids was the ONLY thing the Feds regulated.

    No one in Washington is middle class. Every last one of them can afford to travel as much as they like, send their kids to the best private schools, and live the life style they choose. Mitt Romney makes more in an hour than I bring home in a month. I was disabled by my profession. They more than doubled the work load while cutting personel by half. People's lives were in my hands every day (I was an Histology Technologist) and I was highly skilled. After 18 yrs. I was only earning $18 per hour. I'm on Social Security Disability and Worker's Comp. and because it's my hands & arms that were crippled there's no hope of ever working again. No, I don't have everything I want. But I'm not going to sit around and be jealous of those who can. They have their own problems.

    This woman and her family are on display and "working" 24/7. I'm sure there are days when Mrs. Obama has two or three appearances/speeches or whatever else to do on behalf of the country. They also have many events at the white house that have to be planned and attended. I don't begrudge them their vacations or any time they can manage to take alone. I don't think any of us would trade places with the pace they have to live at and their total lack of a private live.

    He took WAY MORE vacation days that the Obamas have. Besides he could do less damage while he was busy clearing brush down on the ranch. In fact, he took a break from cleaing brush in August 2001 to take a look at the lastest security briefing, "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." Skimmed it and never gave it another thought til 9/11. YEE HAAA!
