Am I the only one who’s noticed that Michelle has really dropped off the radar the last few months compared to her earlier media exposure...wonder what’s up with that?

It's
1. Bush's fault
2. Tea Party's fault
3. Republican’s fault
4. Right wing extremist's fault
5. Racist's fault
6. anybody else’s fault
That about sums it up......

No reason was given for the Obamas traveling on separate jets.

All that rich food served on the 'listening tour' bus?

Not that it decreases the carbon footprint any, it looks like a Gulfstream with USAF insignia on the engine cowling.

AF3?

ABC News is busy covering the president’s ass this morning - just led the 7am news with a list of advisors who have been summoned to Marther’s Vineyard for Obama’s ‘working vacation’.

...wonder what’s up with that?

Election time approacheth and, with approval ratings way down, they have to bury the fervently Communist anti-American bitch as best they can for the next 15 months.

She also took time off to go to Oregon while the debt ceiling situation was going on - which you’d think would have been a stand-by-your-man moment.

On a lighter note did you see the story that Bill Clinton’s says that he’s a “vegan?”

Obviously, this profligate duo doesn’t care how awful it looks to be spending millions of tax dollars so they can vacation luxuriously and hobnob with those “millionaires and billionaires” that BO claims to hate so much.

The plan must be to take much of that billion dollars he’s raising for his campaign and use that as their personal “golden parachute” after he loses the election. They’ll be able to buy their own mansion in some tax haven and live happily ever after, while our children and grandchildren struggle to survive under the crushing debt this traitor left behind.

Muslims are into symbolism, so I'd guess ozero and hie superior, Bo, are what the wookie has determined the faggot boy king should be allowed.

The wookie fag hag has the girls (of questionable parentage IMO ... any birth announcements in any papers at any time? .. I've never seen them)

The boy's plane and the girl's plane.


The paranoia of that 'family' has GOT to be off the charts.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.

Last year they send Bo on his own plane to Martha's Vineyard.

They are nothing but grifters in the same vein as the Clintons, only worse . . . altho I think flying the large bottomed Mooch-elle separately was a wise idea . . . altho I’d’ve made her walk . . . just to get rid of some of that lard.

"Michelle Obama and the two Obama daughters took what appears to be a Gulfstream jet”

MO jets to a luxury vacation spot in privileged fashion but going to Dover AFB to pay respects to the families of our heros is apparently an incovenience for her.

The Obama’s hubris is actually a very good thing.

It’s going to inspire the opposition in 2012.

I've read that Michelle Obama polls very poorly among Republicans and pretty poorly among Independents. I believe the White House showcases Michelle when they need to pump up their base; otherwise, they hide her.

OK.... If the Secret Service did this for security reasons, much like Corp America do not allow all top personnel on one flight I'll go along with it...

But if this is vanity or some other reason, I am ticked.

Why?

They busted the "BIG 3's" chops when they flew to Washington to beg for funds, yet the Dominant Media says nothing about this HYPOCRACY.

What was good for GM, then Chrysler, and Ford is good enough for the Obama's IMHO...

Thanks Kristinn. I’m reposting this news in several places as it probably won’t be on the alphabet news. This really frosts me.

Another way it will frost you is that it won't be on the lips of any Republicans, either. How many times did we see the RATS run to the nearest microphone to denounce W for taking a vacation or rip into a Republican for playing a round of golf or enjoying a meal somwhere, but never do we see Republicans return the favor. Never!

Here we have the economy unraveling in the wake of The Deal That Must Be Made!™ and this clymer Obama goes off to place that charges more for a week's stay than the average schmoe makes in a year while the Stupid Party—the entire Stupid Party—stands completely mute. That frost me big time!

"No reason was given for the Obamas traveling on separate jets."

As my daughter would say... "Seriously?"

I thought it was pretty common knowledge that their marriage was on the rocks? Dude, she left him with the dog. No clearer signal than that. Bill feels his pain. Next picture is going to be everybody cruising the waterways on the party boat with OB sportin' his own little slick willie.

Michelle Obama and the two Obama daughters took what appears to.....

Michelle and the girls never travel alone..a minimum of 20 paid staff are usually with them plus their friends and relations.

Did Barry get his wedding ring back yet? I heard both his watch and his ring "are out for repairs". They disappeared right around the time Ramadam began..

Which tells me the reason they are traveling separately is because Michele doesn't want to travel with Barack.

Maybe there is some truth to rumors that they are 'not getting along'.

She must be all medicated and unable to keep with the protocol of a First Lady. Michelle is lazy and never worked anyway. She is not schooled in entertaining other dignitaries and their wives. All she is good for is a burger and fries and a beer.

Nope. I noticed too. A secret trip to see her brother in OR leaked out, and of course she and the family were nowhere near the bus tour.

Then Barry flew alone with Bo on the same day that Shelly and the girls flew in from DC as well?

Sounds like their ‘arrangement’ may be a little strained.
