Working Class Dems Angry at Obama Royal Family …(Michelle’s Spanish Excursion Cost $467,000)

Michelle Obama waves to her local fans in Spain.

Judicial Watch announced today that Michelle Obama’s controversial August 2010 vacation to Spain cost American taxpayers at least $467,585.

Even working class Democrats are angry at America’s royal family, the Obamas, for their 17 vacations and weekly partying since coming into office.
The Washington Examiner reported:

Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing “staycations” because they can’t afford gas and hotels, are resentful of the first family’s 17 lavish vacations around the world and don’t want their tax dollars paying for the Obamas’ holidays, according to a new analysis of swing voters.

“They view everything through their own personal situation and if they can’t afford to do it, they can’t enjoy it, they don’t like Obama using their tax dollars to benefit himself,” said pollster John McLaughlin. “In this case, they see him as out of touch. While they are struggling he’s not sharing in that struggle and he’s basically doing what they can’t do on their tax dollars,” added the GOP pollster.

He and several other top-tier Republican pollsters, organized by Resurgent Republic, traveled to 11 battleground states to host focus groups of independent and swing voters, mostly Democrats, who voted for President Obama in 2008 but who are now on the fence.

McLaughlin handled blue collar and Catholic voters in Pittsburgh on April 3 and Cleveland on March 20. He found that they are very depressed about the economy and feel that their tax dollars are being sucked up by both the rich and those living on government assistance.

During the focus group discussions about debt and spending cuts, many in his group volunteered criticism of the presidential vacations as something that should be cut. Among the lines McLaughlin wrote down was one from a Democratic woman who said, “Michelle Obama spends $1 million to take the kids to Hawaii,” and another who said, “President Obama was the only president to take so many trips.”

The theme, said McLaughlin, is that the first family “is out of touch” with working class voters.

If you think this is bad… Just wait until their second term!

    What an immense relief it will be once we kick this worthless woman and her worthless husband out of the White House in November.

  • Befuddled

    “Out of touch”, that’s impossible. I’ve seen Michelle working the soup kitchen at least twice since her husband has been president. it’s not their fault that there aren’t any soup kitchens at their vacation spots in Hawaii, The Cape, South Africa…

    Michelle Antoinette. Need I say more? If push came to shove, she wouldn’t tie my shoelaces if I was starving and out of water, but if it was her, she’d be screaming for help.

  • SeniorD

    “Live the royal high life! Travel often and expensively” is her motto.

    I’m beginning to think the family in the White House is more like the Beverly Hillbillies.

    Without the class.

    This family is sucking the life out of the American dream.. They have abused everything and smile as they do it… There is no longer dreams for the people, only nightmares that lurk around every corner of this once beautiful land.. We sit and watch in disbelief as they party hardy, vacation in the best of style all on the tax payers dime with little worry as to how they spend money.. They care not what they can give to this country and it’s people only what the people can give to them.

    I am betting the Royal couple will be broke within 5 to 7 years of being weaned from the public breast.

    #17 I read somwhere that the Obamas were in debt HUGE prior to their rise in
    politics. I would tend to believe the story. So undeserving of their position, I
    must be racist.

    [The first lady could also be seen with other American politician, known for Obama, who hosts these days in a private house in Marbella: Jesse Louis Jackson Jr., Democrat member of House of Representatives of the United States, son of activist and former Presidential candidate Jesse Jackson and also the national coordinator of the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.

    Several Arab royal families also spend their summers in Marbella for years. Thus, there will be a meeting between Michelle Obama and Prince Salman bin Abdelaziz, governor of Riyadh and brother of the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, while another meeting deck of the first lady the owner of Málaga CF, a billionaire businessman, son of Qatar’s Interior Minister and member of the Qatari royal family, Abdullah Al Thani.]
