Skip to comments.'Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette'

Michelle Obamas lavish holiday in Marbella has led her to be compared to Marie Antoinette.
The First Lady is in the Spanish city for four days with her daughter Sasha and a total of 68 Secret Service agents from the US.
She is staying at the five-star Hotel Villa Padierna, where her entourage has reserved 60 of the 129 rooms.

She’s just gettin’ her slice of them reparations.
Gee, the Brits used to love the Obamas.
I would prefer to have Marie Antoinette.
The media gave GWB hell for going to Crawford to hang out on vacation. These people are nauseating and I find them just as disgusting as Bernie Madoff or that Salander the art scammer. They all live a lavish lifestyle on someone else’s money.
I thought the world was supposed to love the Euro-centric Obama and his groovy hipness.
agreed! she was a lot easier to look at.
Marie Antoinette perhaps, but I’ve always thought more along the lines of a black Medusa.
Well, let them eat argula.
From what I know about the true history of MA I think the comparison is an insult to MA.
Response: An inept analogy. Whatever her faults Marie Antoinette was legitimate nobility with centuries of history behind her. This creature is an historical accident; a bit of flotsam and jetsam cast up by some political spasm.
Why in the world would she go someplace like that.
What is she trying to prove or do?
You should see the comments on the site there. It shocked me, not only the negative comments about Mr. & Mrs. Zero, but the fact that people were rating them good! I about fell out of my chair!
Is Stedman with MO??? ;)
wow....and the Daily Mail are like the WaPost/NYSlimes...
big trouble heading Barry’s way...
Well, Oprah is a long-time fag hag.
She and the kid have the same strange sandals on. That’s the only nice thing I’m gonna say.
You sure succinctly nailed that one.
68 Secret Service agents?
I hope they have a diverse policy and they’re not all
What a trip.. on our dime..
She’s just an embarrassment imo. That stilted, unbalanced walk, that constant angry scowl on her face, it’s disgusting. A horrible representation of America overseas. Why is she even there?
People, click on the link and digg it up, too.
Michelle and everyone in her entourage seem to have that “entitled” expression on their faces...
“Let them eat beans.”
No one this big in the thighs should wear white!
Let em eat Arugula.
Her reparations were paid ten fold during the civil war.And 600 thousand paid.
I notice a lot of censorship on this thread.
Has Marie Michelle Antoinette been in touch with the mods?
I’ve been hearing that she is travelling with 40 close friends. Are these friends paying their own way or are we picking up the tab for them as well? About as rhetorical a question as I could ask, I suppose.
Is this the thread with the most “Removed by Moderator” comments ever??? What gives? Folks getting rough with the Imelda-Marcos-wannabe?
Sure do seem to be a lot of posts getting removed by the moderator. I wonder if some of the FR moderators are a bit left leaning or maybe Obama supporters?
Wonder what has been said that deserves so many post removals by said moderator?
Also makes me wonder just how much free speech is allowed on FR.
“Wonder what has been said that deserves so many post removals by said moderator?”
I have a feeling we’ll find out in November....
comment from UK link
--I guess the novelty has worn off and the fools who voted for Obama are finally seeing the reality. He and his wife are smug, fake posers who love the nouveau life despite acting (poorly) like just plain folks. No class, lots of attitude
--Once in power they conveniently forget their promise. Why is it necessary to have 68 body guards from the US, 250 police guards and military personnel from the visiting country? Why is it necessary to stay at one of the most expensive hotels? I'll tell you why: because they can and because they are not footing the bill themselves.
I was wondering that myself. They must have been really juicy posts. I’ve never seen a thread with so many deleted posts. This one may set a record in that reguard.
I hope we see the desired results in November. And again in 2012.
I hope my fellow Americans have woke up to what many of us already knew.
Amazing how so many can be so damn dumb to the facts.
On the moderator bit I wonder if most were throwing out the old line about “off with her head” like the queen of hearts would shout in Alice in Wonderland.
Seems to fit the Marie Antoinette bit.
Yes! Inquiring minds want to know.
