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."

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

Sacrifice is for the “ little people” not the emperor and empress.

The stress of being POTUS/FLOTUS is obviously too much for the first couple.

For their own good we need to get them away from this brutal job...

She’s staying at the vacation home of a wealthy Chicago couple - a “one percenter”.

I assume there are hundreds of “Occupy” protestors outside, right?

Good grief! Don’t you know how hard it is to vacation in Hawaii?? Give the poor woman a break! She needs a vacation from her vacation.

Gotta grab all you can while the gettin’s good. And gettin’ over on the man just feels so good.

She’s royalty now, y’know. Who cares about public perception?

Is it within the power of Congress to put limits on how much money is allocated towards junkets like these?

One of the reasons the Democrats haven't passed a budget.

No way for anyone to know where in the hell all the money goes.

Yes she had a vacation a month ago, but where has she been in between that time and this. All over the country campaigning and playing high hat, while the Muslim has been doing the same.

Being an overbearing busy-body must be hard work. Her vacations would be okay if no photographers could accompany her.

She should have just combined the trips and skied Kilauea. It’s what the extreme skier would do.

They are going to have a hard time adjusting to post-imperial life. Perhaps, she’ll run for office like Madame Clinton. After all, she’s just as qualified.

The hypocrisy and extravagance of the current First Couple never ceases to amaze me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it. Even Jimmy Carter put a sweater on when he asked the rest of us to conserve energy, y’know?

Hope she does not fall off her skis. It could cause an avalanche!

1. She actually appears to have lost a lot of weight.

2. Note that Soebarkah did not join “the family” on the way back from fundraising on the west coast, but went back to Washington by himself. I think this is a “family” for photo op purposes only.

Don’t be so critical! She’s just making up for all the vacation she knows that she won’t get during a second term.

I suspect — and fervently hope — they know their free joyrides and world tour at our expense is coming to an end and they're going to milk it to the bitter end.
And maybe we can put some decent folks in congress who will kill off the fat pension and perks these marxist moral miscreants are expecting.
Personally, for the wreckage they're leaving behind, I'd like to see them both in prison for 20 years or so.

She might be there to shake down the rich donors who gravitate to Aspen this time of year. A “working” vacation, as it were.
