Michelle Obama's vacations are turning into a huge problem for Pres BO

Mitt Romney correctly said this about the GSA scandal:

"“People have to see that the president is not taking elaborate vacations and spending in a way that is inconsistent with the state of the overall economy and the state of the American family.”" (viaNR)

Yes, it starts at the top with Pres BO & Mrs MO. 

We learned that Mrs MO's Spanish vacation cost over $460,000:

"According to a Judicial Watch analysis, the records indicate a total combined cost of at least $467,585." (NR)

We understand that Mrs MO is entitled to a vacation and the security that goes along with it.  However, do we have to pay for a $467,585 vacation?

This is not playing well in the country.   According to Paul Bedard, there is a lot of anger among blue collar Dem voters. 

Ed Morrissey writes about this on today's post:

"During the focus group discussions about debt and spending cuts, many in his group volunteered criticism of the presidential vacations as something that should be cut. 

Among the lines McLaughlin wrote down was one from a Democratic woman who said, “Michelle Obama spends $1 million to take the kids to Hawaii,” and another who said, “President Obama was the only president to take so many trips.”

The theme, said McLaughlin, is that the first family “is out of touch” with working class voters."

Do you blame the voters? We have a $1 trillion deficit. We have a GSA scandal. Again, do you blame the voters? They told the pollsters that they want these vacations cut or stopped.

By the way, Mrs MO did assure us that she is not running for president! No Argentina syndrome in the US.
