Another 5 star vacation for MooseChelle and the girls.
I’m sure given Baraq’s worsening re-election prospects they’ll milk it hard the next 6 months.

Not sure if that feeling is mutual.

Don't worry Mooch! It will only take Barry a few days to divide us again.

What will she be stuffing her pie-hole with while she tells the rest of America to eat rabbit food?

Will it be lobster or BBQ ribs again?

Yeah, I can just hear the conversations from 1600:

Barry, I am going to the Olympics, call one of your generals and get a plane or two up here asap

Yes Dear, but I cannot go on AF1 as I have to continue to run for office...however; I will fly over on AF1 to show my face when necessary.

Well, Barry, that is your problem, just keep the goodies coming.

The Olympics really needs the extra chaos that a visit from First Fatarse and ensuing security detail will bring to an already over stressed, tight security event.

My deepest sympathies to our friends across the pond.

Wonder if the First Homegirl and her entourage will stiff the purveyors as they usually do. Only the little people have to pay for things, you know.

If I could ask MO one thing, it would be this:

Does it bother you - even one little bit - to spend so lavishly from the taxpayer well of a Country you were never proud to be a member of until your husband got elected?

No, Moochelle. Both you and Barry mentioned that family thing when talking about the Colorado shooting, so you at least need to take the people who sent gifts to you instead of to their relatives and friends who are getting married. And don't you have something going on now about getting Barry in everyone's family photos for a price? Don't they deserve to go to the Olympics too? Huh, MO? Don't they?

Actually, I’m more upset that the President isn’t going to support his country’s athletes. Maybe he’s still not proud of his country and still thinks the U.S. is no better than any other country. He didn’t go to Vancouver two years ago either.

I remember President Bush attending the first U.S. men’s basketball game in Beijing in person. He brought his dad—and 41 got to see the first U.S. sweep of the games in women’s fencing.

Millions out of work, and this is the best this Socialist can come up with to set an example for ‘the people’?

Ah the Communist Left, the Socialists, who always want ‘an even playing field’, for everyone else but themselves.

Go ahead Michelle. Don’t give the Black unemployed a second thought! Suckers...

Yes little Shambi, even in the perfect Leftist paradise, some people are more equal than others. Now eat your cat-food dear, like a good little girl.

Of course, she remains delusional, to think that we have “come together as one family” over the CO shootings. But she’ll go ahead and take credit for that anyway.

President and Mrs. Bush had a good time in China in 2008. I am not sure why the President is not attending the Olypics. He should. It is patriotic to do so which I guess is why he is not.

Yeah sure Meshellmybell. Oh will she give out some more Marine 1 toys from the White House gift shop? Hey when at Buckingham Palace please don't touch the Queen In a conference call with reporters, she said Americans have "come together as one family" Would that be the family that gets 3 meals a day in school?
