Are Barack and Michelle Obama really that obtuse, or is their something else that drives them to throw their privileged lifestyle into the faces of the American people? This is not the first time that Michelle has decided to fly to a vacation using separate flights, separate security, and her own entourage at a time when millions of Americans are jobless and struggling to make ends meet. European vacations, African safaris, designer outfits, a "dinner date" to take in a Broadway show, Michelle and Barack show not one iota of shame or embarrassment.
I don't believe that they are that tone-deaf. I believe that they actually feel entitled to their extravagant lifestyle, paid for by the U.S. taxpayer. This is their way of receiving reparations for the unfair treatment they have received throughout their lives. The horrendous embarrassment they must have felt for having to be subjected to elite private prep schools (Punahou School in Hawaii), Ivy League educations (Columbia and Harvard Law for Barack Obama, Princeton and Harvard Law for Michelle), sweetheart realty deals (with Tony Rezco), and the total unfairness of the American system. I mean it must be hell for a man who is the son of an immigrant, who grew up in a house of modest means, to get subsidized schooling all the way up through an elite university education, and to rise to the office of the President of the United States.
Their behavior is not that they are that dumb. For Them, this is payback.
First lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.
