First Lady vacations while Americans starve
Despite the continued recession in the United States, and her husband racking up trillions of dollars in new debt on the backs of the American People, and with the American People facing the largest tax increase in the history of the United States, yesterday first Lady Michelle Obama her daughter Sasha along with her entourage of 70 secret Service agents and 40 personal friends, landed in Spain’s Casa del Sol. The First Lady of Chic chose the trendy vacation spot in spite of the U.S. State Department having issued warnings to African-Americans that they might be subject to institutionalized spanish racial prejudice. The warning was quickly scrubbed from the State Department’s website on Monday, just prior to the first lady’s arrival.
The People’s Airline of the United States-Airforce 2 , transported one half of America’s first family to the scenic area. According to the UK’s DailyMail “She is on a four-day visit and will be staying at the five-star Villa Padierna, rated as one of the world’s top 30 hotels, with 40 friends.” The price of a room is reportedly up to $2,500 per night. The party has reserved 60 rooms.” There is no indication as of yet, the actual cost to the American Taxpayers for the 70 Secret Service personnel or the aircraft and hotel expenses. The First Lady was photographed strolling down the streets of Marbella, looking luxuriously splendid as she was flanked by a team of Secret Service Agents, her entourage, and curious on-lookers. There was no indication from Michelle Obama over her concern that the United States is “in the worst recession since the great depression,” as her husband, President Barack Obama is fond of repeating. A report surfaced yesterday from Boston.com that according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture “the number of Americans who are receiving food stamps rose to a record 40.8 million in May as the jobless rate hovered near a 27-year high.” Perhaps this trip is another form of “stimulus spending” of taxpayer monies like the $860,000,000,000 Stimulus Bill Mr. Obama and the Democrat Party passed into law 18 months ago. No word from the White House on a final tally of “created or saved jobs” as a result of this trip.
