Everyone Must Sacrifice… Michelle Obama Takes Aspen Ski Vacation a Month After Hawaiian Beach Vacation …Update: 16th Vacation in 3 Years

Michelle Obama went skiing in Aspen this weekend in Aspen.

* * * * *

In January 2009, before the president signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying,

“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.

A month after returning from her 17 day Hawaiian vacation, Michelle Obama is off to Aspen for a ski vacation.
White House Dossier reported:

Michelle Obama has embarked on a skiing vacation with her daughters in Aspen, Colorado, according to the Aspen Daily News.

The first lady, who just returned last month from 17 days of relaxation in Hawaii, is skiing in Colorado on Presidents’ Day Weekend for the second year in a row. Last year she went to Vail.

Michelle’s decision to ski out West again instead of hitting slopes closer to Washington would seem an inopportune choice for a first lady who is helping her husband campaign on issues of “fairness.”

The Obama campaign has set itself up as the defender of the poor and the middle class against the “One Percent,” a theme which clashes with the image a first lady who is taking frequent and exclusive vacations.

Just last August, she sojourned on Martha’s Vineyard, and the month before she travelled to southern Africa for a trip that mixed official business with tourist outings like an African safari. In July 2010, she took an exorbitant excursion to the southern coast of Spain, flying out with friends and family on a large jet that often serves as Air Force 2 and then staying at a ritzy hotel.

UPDATE: This was the 16th vacation for members of the First Family in three years.

    Proles. Cake. You know. Is she one of the 1%?

    We know who these beings are in the White House. We all are well aware that they are cons and manipulators. They feed off the naivety of the underlings. Those of us with a conscience and moral values see exactly what is going on. And we see the Republicans doing nothing to stop the indecency and corruption of a government that is so evidently clear.

    The only hope for America is that we will never have to see their face in the White House after November. It will be hard to win with Network comedians, MSNBC, Media Matter, Soros and his affiliations and foot on the core of American liberals. The articles written by the most angry and evil writers, Hollywood and it immoral response to everything Conservative.

    Michelle Obama has managed to take away a Turkey Sandwich, Banana, Chips and Apple juice from an innocent little 4 year old girl, who was happy her mommy made her delicious lunch. Student is getting death threats at school for a sing a long to Allah. He never wanted to sing a song like that and now, DEATH THREATS.

    So, it will be a battle to win but for the grace of God, with Him on our side, Miracles do happen. And then, we won’t be subjected to this cruelty and maybe a little girl is not damaged by the likes of radicals.

    I blame the voters. I blame them so much for what we have been subjected to for the past 3 years. The damage has been done and the only recourse is that the voters can put and end to the worse 3 years in America’s history behind us once and for all. I hope we never have to live through this ever again.

    I can’t be afraid of speaking my mind. As I see it we freedom of speech is still apart of our Constitutional Rights.

    Why, for telling the truth.

    Could you imagine Eleanor Roosevelt taking an Aspen vacation during the worst part of the Great Depression, one month after taking a Hawaiian vacation, after Martha’s Vineyard, after the African vacation, after the South American vacation, … well you get the picture. And people say Marie Antoinette was tone deaf. I wonder if she listed the kids as Senior Advisors again.

  • NeoKong

    He was saying the same thing just the other day.Apparently we are allsupposed to contribute more while his wife flies all over the country like royalty on fabulous vacation only the evil 1% could ever afford.
    We are all supposed to live off of carrot sticks and rice cakes while she is ripping the claws off a lobster with her teeth.

    The hypocrisy is is off the charts and Santorum Newt or Mitt should definitely bring it up.

    The secret service and all the other govt. employees required to accompany her all get per diem on these trips and are away from their families. Do they care that dozens had to work over Christmas? It might be argued that someone is on the payroll anyway but of course that is beside the point because if they stayed home, they could go home to their families at night. Of course they flew the family dog home for a photo session while they were in Hawaii, but they are not really Christians, the holiday is just an excuse for another vacation.

    Meanwhile back at the White House P.R. Department;
    “She did WHAT?! Sweet mercy, pass the Malox and Prozac. Fire up the old spin machine, maybe we can get a few more miles out of it before the wheels fall off. Call up the media outlets and threaten them with their miserable lives if commentary about this appears *anywhere*. Call homeland security and have them start actively monitoring for the term “Marie Antoinette”. Come on people chop-chop, this disaster isn’t going to hide itself!”

    Obama’s Trillion-Dollar Exaggeration

    [President Obama has repeatedly and falsely claimed that “right now,
    we’re scheduled to spend nearly $1 trillion more” in tax cuts for the
    “wealthiest 2 percent of Americans.” That’s simply not true. The Bush
    tax cuts- which Obama and Congress extended for two years- expire
    at the end of this year, so any plans to “spend” beyond Dec. 31, 2012,
    would require Congress to act again.

    The White House told us that the president is referring to the $968
    billion that “we save” over 10 years by allowing the Bush tax cuts to
    expire as scheduled for high-income wage earners and returning the
    estate tax rate to 2009 levels. But that’s money “saved” compared
    with extending the expiring cuts, not compared with current law. The
    fact is that the U.S. is not “scheduled to spend” that money and can’t
    spend it without changes to current law.]

    “Michelle’s decision to ski out West again instead of hitting slopes closer to Washington would seem an inopportune choice for a first lady who is helping her husband campaign on issues of “fairness.”’—Because Moochelle Antoinette knows that the mainstream press won’t report any of it. She knows she can do as she pleases knowing she will get a complete pass.

    [The president often refers to families earning more than $250,000 a year (and individuals earning more than $200,000) as “the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans.” He did it throughout the debate in the final months of 2010, when he failed to convince Congress to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire as scheduled on Dec. 31, 2010, for “the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans,” and keep them for those earning less than that. We figured — correctly — that the president was referring to the temporary income tax cuts enacted by Bush in 2001 and 2003 and extended by Obama in 2010.

    But we were puzzled by Obama’s repeated claim that the U.S. “right now” is “poised” to spend “nearly $1 trillion more” on the Bush tax cuts. The fact is that when Obama and Congress negotiated a two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts for all taxpayers, the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation estimated it would cost $363.5 billion through Dec. 31, 2012. That’s not close to “nearly $1 trillion” and that was the cost for all taxpayers, not just the wealthy.]

    For the first time in my life, I’m not proud to be an American.

    Who can be proud of a country that put these two grifters and their posse into the White House?

    Historic, indeed.
