What the heck is she vacationing for? Her mama takes care of the kids, she does not cook or clean, and she does not work. She tells Americans what they should eat, then she slams ice cream by the buckets, and burgers by the bag. While Rome burns, Nero and his Zero party like it is 1939.
A good place to begin cutting would be Michelle Obama’s rather generous vacation programme. Keith Coffler, who edits the influential White House Dossier, notes that Michelle Obama spent no less than 42 days on vacationover the past year – that’s one in every nine days:
Her vacations, the cost of which are mostly borne by taxpayers, include trips to Panama City, Fla., Martha’s Vineyard, Hawaii, South Africa, Latin America, Vail, Colo., and her visit this week to her brother in Corvallis, Ore.
The total does not include a nine day sojourn in Martha’s Vineyard that the Obamas will enjoy this month. Nor does it include a trip she made to Ireland and Great Britain in May, which I’m counting as official travel.
