Posted on 03/22/2014 4:13:02 AM PDT by lbryce
Jet-setting first lady Michelle Obama has placed a great wall around her junket to China, denying press access while she racks up an $8,350-a-night bill at a swanky high-rise hotel a move that is already drawing barbs back home.
Her entourage which includes her daughters and mother are reportedly enjoying 24-hour butler service, a private steamroom and in-room dining at the Beijing Westin.
For the most part, Americans get that the president and first lady usually stay in well-appointed accommodations when they travel abroad, but the problem with doing it especially now is there are 50 million people on food stamps and weve been in a five- to six-year recession, and I think thats what upsets people more than anything, said Keith Appell, a Washington, D.C.-based Republican consultant.
Pundits are also questioning why she is not allowing press coverage.

What sort of record,legitimacy does Michelle Obama have as spokesperson for America on their trip to China that while championing freedom of speech at the same time not allowing press coverage?
What sort of record,legitimacy does Michelle Obama have as spokesperson for America when all that she is preoccupied with is the exceedingly outrageous profligacy she makes the most of during this "Let's See The great Wall of China" while we still can tour?
What is it about Michelle Obama that distinguishes her as First Lady of Vacuousness as perfect foil to her "Girly Man Of No Persona" President?
What social redeeming value best describes Michelle as political icon for all that is great and wonderful abut America?
Is it her jingoistic patriotism, love for this country of ours that rubbed off on her from her husband that makes her so special? Is it her cerebral superiority, her profoundly intellectual capacity as product of America's best?
Or perhaps her incredible sartorial splendor, as stylishly fashionable trendsetter, conno-sewer of couture" that has her forever in the cross-hairs of the fashion world as harbinger of next season's 'new kumquat is orange' look?
Michelle, you big, fat pile of nothing.
Watch for Osama Obama to apologize to today’s Butcher of Beijing for the US “hegemony” that made the “Cultural Revolution”,”The Great Leap Forward” and the Korean War necessary.
Her entourage usually includes about 30 or 40 others “guests.” How many are on this trip?
My guess is, she’s a mule and delivering SOMEthing the now aggrieved press would spell out and bring the two grifters down before all the pieces are in place.
I read earlier that she has 70 guests this time....it’s wonderful to be queen when our tax dollars pay for all expenses.

She was basically given her path to college for free, and abused that with constantly stirring racial hatred and agitation while an undergraduate at Princeton and at Harvard law school.
Her Princeton "thesis" reads like it was written by a 5th grader, and is nothing more than a selfish, racist rant.
She actually "occupied" the Harvard Dean's office by breaking in and trespassing.
I read that when the Chicago corrupt machine got her an affirmative action job, she was outraged that they even expected her to show up.
When Barry blackmailed and connived his way into the US Senate, she was handed a huge paying crony job in a hospital - that required her do absolutely nothing. It did have the added benefit, however, of giving her a platform (when she decided to show up) to complain about racism and the lack of affirmative action.
While Americans suffer from unemployment, struggle to pay their children's college tuition, groan under the weight of incredible inflation (which the BLS pretends is not there), and Barry's tyrannical surveillance programs, Moochelle and her fat mother go on jaunts to China, terrorizing the butlers and maids, and spending hundreds of millions of dollars.
Must be nice to be president. Get to send your wife to the other side of the world so you can watch the NCAA basketball tournament in peace.
OMG!!! WHERE the HELL do they get their clothes from, Goodwill?? They are NOT dressed appropriately except maybe the older girl.
Its good to be King. But I have more respect to the Burger King’s King then to King Gaybama.
...and some free uninterrupted Reggie time...
The youngest daughter skirt is a tad too short...
Grandma looks like she picked her ensemble off a K-Mart rack...
You know, if they are going to spend 100's of millions of dollars of our hard earned tax dollars and act like royalty, they should at least look the part..
The big story here is, apparently, Obama’s mother-in-law is Moms Mabely
When they went to Africa, I think someone from Africa asked if there were white people in America as the only white Americans they saw with that herd were the SS.
All part of reparations, this is how I think they justify this outrageous behavior.
The mainstream media is part of it, too....by virtue of the fact that IF a Republican were in power, they would be BLASTED by the press for such extravagant spending.
If this trip is "political" in nature...why are the two daughters attending a high profile meeting ?
Aren’t they on the payroll as “senior advisors”?
