Let Them Eat Paella!

While unemployment in this country remains on the up tick, General (Government) Motors invests $500 million in a plant in Mexico, and forecasted retail sales fell short for a fourth straight month, First Lady Michelle Obama is spending a luxury filled 5 day vacation in Spain on the U.S. taxpayer's dime.

What a complete joke.

Not my dime. She already spent that--on her last vacation.

Maybe this is all done with wilful intent since this WH dreads that all these perks are going to last only for one term. Might as well do everything they ever hoped for to enjoy during their entire stay.

This is the only plausible reason I can think of. Unless the intent is to simply taunt the people with such total disregard for propriety.

I am saddened to think this.
