I guess the rules only apply to the general public.........
On Sunday, President Obama flew back to the United States
on Air Force One. His wife, two daughters and her mother did
a bit of shopping in Paris before taking their own Boeing 757
(C-32) over to London to do some sight seeing.
We all remember Obamas admonishment to corporate CEOs
You cant get corporate jets, you cant go take a trip to Las
Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers dime.
Apparently that doesnt apply to his wife.
The London Times opened its description of Michelles visit this way:
Motorcycle outriders, armoured Chevrolets and bullet-headed men
in raincoats criss-crossed London yesterday as Michelle Obama and
her daughters spent a second day on an unofficial visit to the capital.
The Times went on to describe that when Michelle and the girls arrived
at Westminster Abbey, the building was closed to tourists with people
already in told to wait against the wall. An American visiting the Abbey
said Right then I knew it was probably someone from our royal family.
Michelles motorcade shut down the London street above as the First
Lady of the World and her children go for Fish and Chips at a pub in
Mayfair. The entourage inside the restaurant was 15 people while
dozens more wait outside. Include the dozens of Air Force personnel
to fly and service the plane, embassy personnel and other staff and
we are talking about a serious expenditure of tax payer dollars.
Meanwhile, millions of Americans have lost their jobs and wont be
able to take their family on asummer holiday. Despite their
circumstances they'll still be expected to fork over the tax dollars to
pay for Michelles trip!
