and other whoppers being told by our First Lady ...
Michelle Obama is currently on a fund raising tour of California. Her staff managed to squeeze in two 'official First Lady' events between four high dollar Democrat fundraisers, in order to have the taxpayer foot the bill for the entire trip. Ms. Obama's office was contacted by more than one news organization, asking for a summation of how much the trip was costing us. Her office has declined to respond. I wonder why?
This kind of crap has been going on for decades - it is not an Obama invention. However, the two of them seem to have taken the absurdity of it to new levels. We are paying for them to travel to events that generate millions of dollars in donations for Democrat campaigns - and the amount of money we are shelling out for it is not at all trivial.
Ms. Obama attended a $1000 a plate lunch fundraiser in Southern CA yesterday, sponsored by the Southern California Women for Obama organization - whatever the hell that is. News reports states that over 500 people paid for a plate, the majority of which were African-American women.
During her speech, Obama alluded to her husband's work ethic:
"He reads every word, every memo, so that he is better prepared than the people who are briefing him. This man doesn't take a day off."
OK, the first part of that statement would be correct even if President Obama was merely awake during his briefings - the brain dead idiots he has surrounded himself with just don't have a clue what is going on.
The second part ... seriously?
Barack Obama - the President documented to have taken more vacations, more fund raising trips, more trips to junk food outlets, than any other President in history, AND who has played more than 70 rounds of golf in a little over two years - hasn't taken a day off?
Good God ... this man has taken more days off in less than two and a half years than I have in my entire work career (and that's approaching three decades).
And that is Michelle Obama's idea of a committed work ethic? Maybe it is ... if you are a far left socialist ...
6/26 Update - Obama racked up his 75th round of golf since taking office yesterday.
I wonder ... are we, the taxpayers, paying his greens fees? If so, eliminating his frequent trips tot he links would take a huge chunk out of the deficit!
