...

Aspen airport’s director of aviation, Jim Elwood, declined to discuss Mrs. Obama’s travel plans, but said, “Typically when VIPs land, we do not close the airport, but hold other traffic for a few minutes.” He added, “This is one of our busiest weekends of the year

Is she there to talk about income inequality and implore people to eat their veggies?

Obama’s Valentine’s Day bachelor golf holiday marks 23rd vacation.

Taxpayers footing the bill for their luxury travel.

No conscience and no brains. While much of the nation is in the grip of weather conditions that require emergency services to be able to respond to all kinds of emergencies, they have to put everything on hold for Obama vacation plans. Marie Antionette and Nero had nothing on these two.

I'm holding an image of last week that is so nice. It's the comparison...Michelle and Obama are feeding the president of France 10 different potato dishes while Putin is having wine, Bud and brownies with US Olympic atheletes!

Historically the majority of successful revolutions were not started by the “serfs and peasants” but by the lower aristocracy that the ‘king’ stepped on one to many times.

For a bunch of leftwing elitists who always whine about government shutdowns, they sure don’t mind shutting down cities and airports when they want to enter the land of the unwashed little people for their entertainment.

Well.... he's really not playing golf, and she really isn't going to be skiing.

It's more like a false sense of 'class'. They both are trying to look like 'white rich people'. Which is a bit contradictory considering they publicly detest 'white rich people'.

Just her way of getting back at the wealthy they despise so.

Shouldn’t the Worst Lady (aka Supreme Grifter) be “home” tending her vaunted “garden”. What a useless subhuman degenerate. And by the way, just where are their vaunted 2 dogs? I bet they have eaten them.

These two dip shi#s just wanted to be King and Queen of America with nothing to do but spend on vacations, parties, and non government business trips around the world. Typical of when ignorant communists get power and fill their pockets with what they can steal.

Look at the bright side.
Since Putin intimidated Baraq, the whole Obama crew is no where near Sochi.
Otherwise we’d be seeing them for a half hour every night on the Olympics coverage.

The Queen cares not what the serfs think

Actually I think she does care. She goes out of her way to do the most ostentatious things to irritate the serfs and royalty alike.

Why else would she wear a sweater to meet with the Queen of England, wear the loudest, craziest outfits, and take expensive vacations. It's a poke in the eye to all the tax payers and those she wants to irritate.

When I lived in Seattle during the late 90’s we were constantly visited by the Toon, Hildebeast, and the Man bear pig, sucking up to Bill Gates. They tie up traffic for hours, usually during the rush hour evening commute, without any regard to the public inconvenience of time and money...
