LET THEM EAT CAKE … SACRIFICE!
First lady Michelle Obama showing that she has skin in the game, NOT, slipped out of DC on a vacation under the cloak of darkness, or at least from the notice of the MSM. America is glad to see that a US credit downgrade, an anemic GDP, a 9.1% unemployment rate and a mountain of US debt does not deter Michelle Obama from altering her lifestyle … you go girl.
Mrs. Obama reportedly jetted into the Eugene Airport, landing at about 11 am PDT. She and family members then headed out in a 11 vehicle motorcade for the ride to Corvallis.
The White House has so far said little about the trip, which was unannounced. It’s unclear how long the vacation will last.
Mrs. Obama and family members flew on a Boeing C-40B, the military version of a 737 that serves as Air Force 2.
Mrs. Obama has in the past incurred criticism for her travels, including an early departure for her most recent Hawaiian vacation and a luxurious 2010 trip to Spain. Most of the costs of her travel are borne by taxpayers.
