Caption Michelle Obama mourning with a friend in Spain
Associated Press, AFP, Reuters , GatewayPundit | 8-11-10

Posted on 08/11/2010 12:23:50 PM PDT by Justaham

After a few days of plotting and planning the state-run media finally settled on an excuse. Now the media spin is that Queen Michelle really traveled to Spain to mourn the loss of a parent with a friend.

Here’s Michelle mourning with the Spanish King Juan Carlos.


Here’s Michelle mourning while sight seeing in Ronda.


Poor Michelle even had to mourn with her friends down at the beach.


It was a very somber trip for the First Lady…

I’m mourning as her usurper husband and his band of left wing thieves plunder our nation.

Why should the person in mourning suffer criticism because of the idiocy of Michelle Obama? To criticize her in this context is not helpful.

This was all over her gynecologist’s father’s death? Really?

It’s such a charade that a “personal vacation” includes this huge posse on the government payroll and expenses paid by the taxpayers.

This lame excuse for MichellemyBellCow’s waste of taxpayer money is a world class example of adding insult to injury.

Get an audience with the King of Spain and you just turned what would have been a personal vacation into an official function of the First Lady. Do you really think the Obamas paid a cent for any of this trip? Only if we make enough noise about it.

And even more of a charade to imply that she isn’t spending tax-payer’s money. Such personal funds are her husband’s pay.

This has nothing to do with a friend's loss of a father. It has everything to do with the obama machine's use of the loss for political cover.

The real issue is being missed here. The question we should ask is why wasn’t michelle by bell w/her husband for his birthday? A big deal was made about the muslim’s birthday, assuming that was really the day he was born. The press ignored that fact that obama’s wife was absent. Not only absent, but clear across the Atlantic. Something isn’t right here and it smells like the Clinton relationship. Is this a marriage of convenience? Is it a relationship to cover up certain things? These are all legitimate questions that the lame stream media should be asking about the first family.

He is going to wish he had disarmed us first.

Lots of choices for Michelle on what to wear for the Ramadan festivities.

Why are the taxpayers funding this trip?? The FLOTUS is NOT an elected representative of the United States and has NO official state function.

If s/he wishes to champion ugly causes in the US (such as the promotion of ugly breast belts to hide the fact that s/he is fat!) that shouldn’t cost the taxpayers money.

This is sheer BS!!

Except from an article at the Washington Post!

A less obvious reason was revealed in a small detail. Reporting for Politics Daily, Lynn Sweet wrote that Mrs. Obama traveled to Spain at this particular juncture to comfort a friend whose father had recently died and whose daughter, a friend of 9-year-old Sasha Obama (who accompanied her mother), had especially wanted to celebrate her birthday in Spain.

I have two theories:

1-Michelle picked up some cash from the Arabs she met on the trip

2-Michelle is so arrogant and angry that she is behaving petulantly in a manner that will reflect poorly upon Obama because she's getting tired of being First Lady

Of course, both could be true.

Yeah, I’ve heard THAT version, too!!

It’s still a boodoggle and the taxpayers are footing the bill.

Who is criticizing a “person in mourning”? We’re criticizing Michelle Antoinette.

If you believe she’s in mourning or that this trip had anything to do with mourning, then I have several bridges, a lot of real estate, and some really cool cold fusion engines to sell you!

Does the fact that celebrating birthdays is harem (ie, forbidden) under Sunni Islam help explain it? No joke.
