    Sure.

    But she does not have a moral right to spend the taxpayer's money on extravagant vacations.

    And even if she is just dragging hundreds of security personnel around the globe on sightseeing tours she's taking advantage.

    And since you have no proof that suggests she is doing that, there really is no issue here until you actually have some evidence to back your claims, is there?

    I'm not trying to convince you of anything.

    Obama has a solid block of 30-35% who will never question anything he does.

    But most Americans are more open minded and the spectacle of Michelle spending money like crazy on herself does not look so good to them.

    Ya know what's sickening?
    The idea that the First Lady is fair game for you destructive morons.
    EVERY First Lady has spent tax-payer money on trips and what not.
    But Blackie McBlackman's wife does it and its a national emergency.

    No kidding...some of you extremists are sickening...
    Have you kicked a kid yet today?

    Michelle's trips look excessive.

    Speaking of national emergencies, in these times of economic crisis when Obama is lecturing the rest of us on the need to sacrifice Michelle is doing just the opposite.

    please elaborate on "destructive morons"

    Also, who in the heck is "Blackie McBlackman" ? and why should we care what that guy's wife is doing?

    This thread is about excessive vacationing of Michelle and her entourage

    I asked the same question. I can't imagine that the poster used some cutesy term to try and infer that any time something the incompetent one does is questioned is because of race.

    If liberals want to find out if race had anything to do with it why not poll the nation and ask

    knowing what you now know, would you have voted for Cain or Obama in 08?

    You would see resounding support for a black man, it just would not be the incompetent one.

    Playing the race card is what libs usually do when their other arguments fail.

    Expensive massages, top shelf vodka and five-star hotels: First Lady accused of spending $10m in public money on her vacations

    By Tamara Abraham

    Last updated at 8:28 PM on 24th August 2011


    The Obamas' summer break on Martha's Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets.

    But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances.

    White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers' money on vacations alone in the past year.

    Comment: The Obamas hate the USA, and live it up on our dime as they help and destroy our country

    10 million per year, so I guess that makes her the 25 million dollar woman -so far.

    What is with Michelle Obama these days?

    Has she now become America's latest most unpopular version of Marie Antoinette?

    When there are already 25 million Americans who are either unemployed or cannot find full-time work, does Michelle Obama not appreciate what is going on?

    Has her insincere message to millions of Americans who desperately want and need jobs to support their wonderful families now become, in the words of the infamous and intensely disliked wife of Louis XVI of France, "Let them eat cake?"

    "White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10 million of U.S. taxpayers' money on vacations alone in the past year." The vacations are totally Michelle's idea. She's like a junkie. She can't schedule enough getaways, and she lives from one to the next - all the while sticking the bills for her expensive getaways to hardworking Americans."

    Let me take a wild guess- you don't like the Obamas, right?

    I can tell from your daily attack on them over and over, hour after hour.

    You are very mistaken, jmpet.

    I harbor absolutely no ill will at all toward Michelle and Barack Obama. In fact, I like both of them -- I just disagree with their policies and the new backward direction they want to take America.

    I have just provided a response to the attack comments the liberals in this group often post about conservative women like Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin. … What is wrong with that?

    No. She is only hated by Radical righties like OP and the Mouth. Most people dont pay much mind to the FLOTUS. Even liberals never came after Laura like the rabid dogs of the tea party go after Michelle.

    Totally unimpressive comparison. MO is not a politician and is not running for office. Like all FL's, she has a key issue she pursues and that is it. If you listen to james or Mouth you'd think she wrote the Affordable Health Care Act herself.

    Michelle's been outta the spotlight for the last month or so. Rumor has it, she had a nose & boob job. Reports say her face was still a little swollen when she left for vacation. Maybe she'll be a different person next time we see her. *crosses fingers*

    The skinny on MO

    People with no ability to start threads taking the president to task instead focus on taking cheap shots at the First Lady? I think that may be what's wrong here. Scrutinize due to lack of cohesive argument.

    "White House sources today claimed?" Is this the same as SMW's insider?

    Again, iJoeTime, your comments are nothing but a canard and you and the other members of our group know it!

    Michelle Obama is hated by absolutely no one!

    When the First Lady misbehaves, we have a right, an obligation and a duty to call their misbehavior and their wanton, unbridled extravagance to everyone’s attention.

    The same was also true with Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, and Nancy Reagan!
