Obama Sniffles Over Michelle Obama's Not "Getting Paid": After 16th 'Free Vacation' in Three Years? (Youtube)
August 9th, 2012
"...I wanna make sure that when she's working she is getting paid the same as men, I gotta say that First Ladies right now don't, even though that's a tough job!"
Indeed, Mr. President, one supposes that 16 vacations in three years on America's dime should easily be pay enough for the First Lady, should it not?
In fact, whatever happened to your constant yammering over public service in favor of going to work for "some big corporation," anyway?
Here is a listing of Michelle Obama's "not being paid like a man" exploits:
First compiled by The Washington Examiner:
-- President's Day 2012, Michelle and the girls go to Aspen to ski.
-- Christmas 2011, the first family goes to Hawaii for an extended vacation.
-- Summer 2011, the family visits Martha's Vineyard, Mass., for the annual beach break.
-- June 2011, the first lady, her mother and daughters travel to South Africa and Botswana.
-- President's Day 2011, the first lady and first daughters travel to Vail to ski.

In fact, two of Michelle's vacations alone totalled over $ 800,000 "tax free" dollars
All of this, even while America burns in the fires of a debt severely out of control. So, just exactly how much is enough for you, El Magnifico?
Regardless of all, this dog simply will not hunt, Mr. President, and it even reeks with a most foul stench, quite frankly.
