What does the definition of the word "sacrifice" mean to the Obamas?
I can't stand hypocrites. That would explain why I have such a low tolerance for most liberals. These people have such an annotated mindset that they can shake their finger at other people for doing something, but they never shake their finger at themselves when they do the exact same thing. Just after the Presidential Election, Barack called for " economic sacrifice in the face of a deepening financial mess". Americans have had to sacrifice their lifestyles ever since this recession materialized not because Obama told them too. Households have cut up their credit cards, not eating out as often, canceling their cable television, brown bagging their lunch etc. As we all know by now, everything with Obama is frankly just about words. I've lost track how many times Barack has been on vacation just in the month of July. Here is why Barack and Michelle Obama are so out of touch with the American people. For her to take 40 of her friends and fly over to Spain to live it up on the tax payer's dime is beyond arrogant.
She is basically thumbing her nose at all of us. Even Bill Clinton once said when he was president "I feel your pain". What has a lot of people pissed off at Michelle is that she not only is splurging on the tax payer's dime during at time of deep economic hurt among the citizens, but she is doing it overseas instead of on American soil. I frankly don't know what is so fascinating about the beaches of Spain. Maybe she and her click decided to fly off to Spain on Air Force 2, because Spain now has a socialist government. I don't believe that she cares one bit about this country or it's people. Michelle said the following at the University of South Carolina back in 2008 "
"It's easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your own ignorance...That's America"
Barack once said that "Americans are stretching every dollar in these economic times, and they should expect their government to do the same". I guess something got lost in translation between himself and Michelle.
