      Not just your opinion, you’re expressing what many of us are feeling. It’s a “Let Them Eat Cake” message. They’re living the good life now and America? Pfffft. Remember, Michelle told us some would have to give up a bit of pie so others could have more. Since then, she’s told us how much Barack loves pie. It’s his favorite dessert. We’re seeing more truth in those statements by the First Lady than in much of what President Obama tells us.

      Not a good decision in these economic times. Meanwhile, Obama celebrates his B-Day with Oprah and NBA players.

      Not that the family doesn’t deserve another vacay at Martha’s Vineyard again this month- but the trip to Spain a little much. America notices!

      Do you think there is a difference with how this compares with other presidential families and their vacations?

      Is it not OK for the first family, any first family, to take a vacation? How much is too much? How far is too far?

      How should we put this story in perspective? Or is this just partisanship politics, in which case, who cares! How does highlighting this help one more person get a job, or save their home?
      SM: Sorry, but the hyprocrisy from the Obama’s is as out of whack as is their spending the tax payers money.

      Even the LEFT is questioning the appearance and terrible image the Obama are setting as they spend in oppulence like King Louie and Marie Antoinette. While people are suffering to survive, Michelle says let them eat cake.

      Just how many vacations do they need? Didn’t they just have one in Maine and NC before that?

      The question would be, how many vacations did the Obama’s take last year when the tax payers were not fotting the bill?

      This image of elitism will come back to bite them big time. There is no question about that. However, these two are tone deaf to the people.
