    Well, the millions of dollars unnecessarily wasted on the Hawaiian vacation and outrageously ostentatious ‘birthday party’ are indeed making much of the country focus on income inequality, and rightfully so.

    Now let’s await the paid liberal shill responses (‘Bush did it!’ – no, he didn’t – ‘They all do it!’ – none have spent like this pretend president – ’Let’s redistribute wealth’ – no, please go to a communist country – ’Bush’s fault!’ – sorry, after these many years all but the paid and brainwashed know that the current president owns the miserable state of the country).

    Berry and Michelle believe they are the king and queen of America. They live the high life of parties with celebrities and expensive vacations while not actually helping their “peasants”.

    Oh, please. I think Michele Obama is allowed one birthday party per year. As for income distribution — it’s been going on on since 1980, with all of the distribution going upwards to the 1%. I’d settle for a brief slow-down. Raise the minimum wage to where it would be if it had kept up with inflation, and close tax loopholes so that Wall Street tycoons pay the same tax rate as people who work and build things.

    You would think with so many Democrats in office that’s exactly what they would be doing, but not quite. They are like republicans but with higher tax rates for the working class.

    She is entitled to her birthday she is not entitled to throw a party on the government dime.

    I seem to remember in a civics class in college that the president AND his wife are allowed a stipend for entertainment…THEIR choice as to what it consists of

    Income inequality? Does that even exist? Is it a problem?

    Remember the new uniforms flap over Nixon’s “royal guards”? Nancy’s wardrobe? How much DID it cost Americans to cut that brush in Texas (While Texas oil billionaires, and those in Denver, got sweet crude deals on federal oil leases?)


    Frankly, what indulgences are spent at the White House, are nothing compared to what those folks providing for those “private donations” to such events garner as “rewards”- and yes, it’s been BOTH parties, for a long time. A review of the Harding administration, with comparison to Reagan’s and "W"’s would be appropriate howeveer.

    When did you take a notice the cost of presidential vacations? You do know that they still work don’t you?

    Good call. I’d back it. Also make being a politician costly to the public servant.
