I wonder if she scolded everyone over what they were eating, too.
One really has to marvel at such stunning hypocrisy
First lady Michelle Obama has joined her husbands bandwagon to hit the rich and spread the wealth, questioning how well-off families can feel good if others are struggling.
To about 300 supporters wealthy enough to pay $300-$10,000 to attend the mid-day event, the first lady said, If a family in this country is struggling, we cannot be satisfied with our own families good fortune.
She also rapped the rich, as has her husband. Who do we want to be? Obama asked. Will we be a country where success is limited to the few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off.
Fundraising in Cincinnati, Ohio as her husband raised cash in Florida, she also said that the change President Obama offered in 2008 does not come easy. And she added, change is slow, but we will get there, according to a pool report of the event.
Michelle Obama has been so concerned about struggling Americans that she felt it would be insulting if she didnt spend their tax dollars on no less than 16 vacations in the last three years

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well yea! And the dumb sheeple eat it up. These are the idiots raised from the 60's on. Nobody cared back then except a few that recognized the outcome. Here it is today. Now try putting that back in the bottle. Never will happen.
She’s as out of touch as the Ceaucescu’s. Things will end better for the Odumbo’s. They’ll enjoy a nice, life-long retirement.
Not so for the peasants.
Is the food different on the $300 plate? Not that I care. Never mind. It’s just not worth it.
She was skiing at Buttermilk Mtn. It’s not at the real Aspen Mtn., but it’s a bunny slope for beginners. It is located a few miles away. What a poser!!!
Probably the same food is served to everyone, but the ten-thousand-dollar-a-plate means the donor gets to sit at the same table as M0. I wouldn’t have dinner with her even if she tried to pay me ten-thousand dollars. For a million dollars in advance, I would reconsider.
It is so depressing that there is ANYONE who thinks either of them really is for ‘them’ as the ‘little people.’ Does this woman understand the the cheapest ticket to this mid-day fundraiser, $300, would feed the average family of four for a month? To say nothing of what her vacations cost.
I’m sure right after this she voluntarily enrolled both of her daughters in the local public school whilst plucking two struggling middle class kids from said school and picking up the tab so they could attend the elite Sidwell Friends private school.
How is Barack’s brother doing? You know the one who lives on $10 a month.
I hate this hypocritical big-ass bi*ch.
or his crappy uncle???
Michelle is like most African leader wife types. Go on vacation while claiming to educate the plebes.
10 Grand for lunch?
Who on earth would pay 10 Grand for lunch?
Must be those 1%'ers....
