Who cares!

We've been there too at OUR WON EXPENSE!

I hear Michele is on an EXTREME SPENDING SPREE at YOUR EXPENSE. She also is the first, er whatever ... to REQUIRE an entourage for makeup to have her look “less angry”.

Michele looks like an over sized clown in the picture at the link. Ugly inside and outside.

“The Obamas go to Normandy on Saturday for D-Day commemoration ceremonies marking the 65th anniversary of the beach landings that helped turn the tide of World War II.

Michelle and the girls were expected to stay in France until at least Monday. The president leaves Sunday.”

BTW, I don’t care.

Actually, I’d like an estimate for expenses, carbon footprint, jet fuel & gas used, and entourage expenses. I’d also like to know if they ate pork or wore burkas.

Come on, you may never have experienced it, but this is what happens when a family moves into a house in your neighborhood and they can’t afford and never expect to pay for. They use and spend every possible dollar they can possibly get their hands on.

RE: “Michele looks like an over sized clown in the picture at the link. Ugly inside and outside.”

*************

“Looks like?” She IS an oversized clown and I repeatedly get the feeling we, the American taxpayers (who are in large part NOT those fools who voted for zero) are merely gifting these grifters with travel and all the finer trappings of life as they flit around the world on our tax dollars.

The past few months of this so-called “presidency” has been nothing more than a terrible embarrassment — the nonstop narcissism coming from this loser is evident daily. He has done more damage to this countryt in a few months than has any other poorly thought of president (like Carter) during their entire terms.

I don’t know how much more I can take. I am literally sick from anxiety and wonder if it can possibly be connected to what’s transpired. I know stress can make one physically ill so I’m guessing YES! I need to stop reading FR, stop watching FOX, stop listening to ‘our’ radio people, etc. or I may explode........yet I just can’t hide from it........

The best from Hollywood would find that an impossible task.

Read Animal Farm and you’ll understand WHY it doesn’t matter what they do -

“Some animals are more equal than other animals.”

Thankfully, this vile human being and the offspring of this alleged 1st family were not in the same European location as yours truly in the past week. Now, feeling much better... because, would not wish to see such historic places ruined by this less than trailer trash family!

I don't know who paid for what. Barack travelled separately and will return on Sunday. Michelle and the girls are returning on Monday. Surely they can't also be flying in the Presidential jet, because that would mean two trips over and two returning trips on our money. Or, could that be? It would be interesting to find out how Michelle and the girls (and other relatives who went along) got there and are returning since it is not with Barack. And, they are doing things to celebrate the oldest girl's birthday, Sunday. Guess that was more important than dinner with the French president.

By the way, I saw some other articles with pictures, claiming Michelle looked so grand with her fashionable scarf. A scarf? A scarf makes one fashionable? Guess that was the only thing that any writer could come up with since Michelle was again in a sweater and too tight pants.

How much do you want to bet that we, the taxpayers, are paying the Grandma for babysitting services???? Not just on this trip, but from day to day. Does anyone have any information about this?

Now, where is the Great-uncle who liberated Germany in WWII? You’d think as he’s getting on in years that it would be important for him to have been included on this trip.

According to Rush, BO has spoken only once to his uncle directly, and that was during the campaign when BO wanted the 'executive summary' of his WWII experiences.

He's done with that little campaign homily, as he is with his uncle, apparently.

Wonder why they never made the trip to the Saudi’s.........could it be they couldn’t find any burkhas that fit or wasn’t The Great One, who claims to have been raised in Islam , willing to succumb to his Islamic heritage and cover his wimmen? LOL!

If she were a good feminist, she would demand the French tear down the Eiffel Tower since it is “too phallic and warlike”.

Hannity announced today that the American taxpayer is picking up the tab for the Paris trip that Obamanation and Mililant Michelle and daughters are taking...food, transportation, site seeing, and clothes. Isn’t that special when people at home are out of work, paying more the FEDERAL fuel to come and less money to buy the essentials like, say...FOOD!!??

Michelle's mom is living in the White House. She's loving it there. Go figure.

And what everyone is neglecting to say about the Obama's visiting Paris, is that every time they go somewhere, everytime they book a place to eat, the streets and neighborhoods have to be closed.

The French people are going to eat that big expense.

Why stress?

It’s not like this is the first time a Republic was in decline due to the immorality of it’s populace.

Shifty insane Emporers tend to accompany the decline and are heralders of the fall.

This Republic was lost the minute the right to vote was expanded to non-freeholders and those under 21

Yes, I understand that she moved to the White House with them to care for the children, just as she did during the campaign. I don’t trust the 0s and believe we’re paying more of their living expenses than we know.

I would persoanlly rather have Mr. and Mrs. Sarkozy as my president and First Lady than the God awful Obamas. I would also like to add the Michelle Obama is certainly large enough to use the Eiffel Tower as her own personal...nevermind.

"She and the little darlings took a separate flight?? "

Yep. I heard her mother went with her too. That means the cost of an extra plane just to fly Michelle, her mother, and the two girls over and back.

Found this on Drudge earlier for anyone interested:
