Sometimes you just can’t write a better title than the one someone blurts out.
‘Splurging is the key to life’ says Michelle Obama.
If there is any one authority on splurging, it’s Queen Michele. Does she ever know how to splurge.
From Judicial Watch:
Her 2013 trip to Dublin cost us nearly $8 million.
Her trips to Africa and Honolulu in 2013 cost us $15 million.
The Obamas were averaging a vacation a month through March 2013.
She get to spend an elongated vacation at pal Oprah Winfrey’s palazzo in Maui. It was the beginning of a birthday party that lasted through January 19th, when she enjoyed most of Hollywood at a White House bash.
Just last month Michelle sauntered off to China. We don’t know how much that cost.
Michelle doesn’t hesitate to splurge on herself either:
And as Dr. Paul Williams noted, who can forget Michelle Obama saying: “In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service.” (First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants; 8/17/09) Ironic, isn’t it, this coming from the woman who said she hadn’t been proud of America her entire life until after her husband cashed in on the presidential lottery ticket, er, I mean, she said until after he was elected. But I digress.
Obama unfathomably sang the blues that Michelle Obama didn’t get paid for her duties “even though that’s a tough job.” But he omitted the fact that she has twenty-six attendants (i.e., staff) at an annual cost to taxpayers of $1,750,000. That includes a hair dresser and the same make-up artist Oprah uses who charges $15,000 per day for his services. Actually I’m surprised she didn’t try to put her daughters on her payroll insofar as she lied and named them as staff when she took her taxpayer-funded African safari where she ate her way through the jungle.
Before you lefties get all lathered up, I know she would claim that she was talking about food.
But anyone with a brain knows better.
Remember back in 2008 when Michelle said:
But in order for all of us to get a little bit more, a whole bunch of us are going to have to give up a little something that we have.
And when she said this?
“Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”
Well, at least we know now who be having more. She’s been eating our piece of pie for five years now.
Splurging may be the key to life. All most of us need is someone else’s money to do it.
