It seems impossible for Barack Obama to do anything that will not come under attack, no matter how petty it is!
The fact that First Lady Michelle Obama decided to have some personal vacation time with daughter Sasha, 9 years old, in Spain, and with a few friends and their children, is coming under attack!
The New York Daily News, a true “rag”, compared what Michelle Obama is doing to Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France during the French Revolution, who supposedly said about the masses: “Let them eat cake!”. Marie Antoinette was later executed, along with her husband, King Louis XVI!
What a preposterous, ridiculous comparison! 🙁 Michelle Obama is paying her own way, as are her friends! The only expense for the government is Air Force Two and the secret service detail, but that is unavoidable anywhere the First Lady and children go !
The Daily News has exaggerated the facts and details of the trip, and supposedly, because many people are unemployed, the First Lady is not entitled to a vacation!
Well, then why is Congress taking time off, and why do any Americans take off time in the summer break? This is totally ridiculous, and NO ONE needs to apologize going on vacation, because others are unemployed and cannot go on vacation!
We have reached the point of being preposterous to the extreme, and this is not the first time a First Lady has taken vacations away from the President!
And considering the burdens the President has, more than any since Franklin D. Roosevelt, he need not apologize for any time off he takes, since it would never match the time taken by George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan!
The answer is that there should be no response to such outrageous, petty attacks, and let the critics stew in their poisonous venom! 🙁
