It's Good to Be Queen

Spending other people's money is easy, but some have a special knack for it. This knack runs in the Obama family:
After blowing nearly a half-million dollars on a Spanish shopping spree, MICHELLE OBAMA has plans to spend a whopping $2 million in the coming year — while the nation struggles with its worst recession ever.
Nearly 15 million people are unemployed, but that hasn't stopped the first lady from "spending like Marie Antoinette" and appearing to live it up "like a lottery winner," fume outraged critics.
Worried White House advisers have told the president he quickly needs to get his wife "under control" because her reckless spending — on trips, shopping and redecorating — is sending an intensely negative message to Americans in a bad economy and could undermine his re-election plans.
…Michelle and her entourage recently spent five days in Spain, ringing up some $500,000 in expenses — much of it on the taxpayers' tab, say sources.
On top of that, the stylish first lady "loves top-dollar designer duds and hosting fancy dinner parties," said a Beltway insider. "The bad economy seems to have no effect on her."
To which the mainstream media responds, "She has such marvelously well-toned arms!"
Speaking of Michelle Antoinette's arms, here she shows them off for the cameras at a "National Day of Service and Remembrance" (as moonbat bureauweenies call September 11) event:
The shirt she's slopping paint in cost $211.
