To compare the current
squatters residents of our White House to Marie Antionette & co. is to do bit of a disservice to the latter. For one thing, Marie took a lot of heat for the acts of her predecessors; for another, she dressed rather well, as opposed to the Moo, who usually looks more like a crazed, infantile Halloween costume run amok than the wife of a head of state…oh, wait…; and for yet another, Marie was very young [a teenager] and lacked the benefit of much formal education, whereas Moo…well, perhaps that is going too far as Moochelle, while having taken up space in some ivied halls, gives little indication of having actually absorbed much of the knowledge there; and, whereas Marie has since been somewhat vindicated as more a victim of that era than a perpetrator, the Moo remains a prime villain, major perpetrator and highly visible symbol for much of the dissatisfaction, disgust and unrest that most Americans are feeling now…but I digress…
What these two women [and, not to leave anyone out, Nancy Pelosi as well] do share in common is that they are the personification of the words “greedy excess,” which is distasteful enough in and of itself, but when perpetrated upon the broken backs of a beggared society is not only despicable, it is cretinous, inflammatory and unforgivable. As Marie Antoinette could have told them, there are few things more dangerous and less willing to listen to reason than an outraged populace whose money has been stolen.
An October 4, 2011 edition of World Net Daily reports that the Obama daughters were designated for their big trip to Africa as “Senior Staff.” EXCUSE ME???? Since when do two attendees of Sidwell Friends–whose averred classmates, according to their father, include the Ayers children [who a in their 30s] classify as SENIOR STAFF??? HAVE these people no SHAME?
And again, not to leave Nancy out here, how on earth does anyone eat a $130 pile of junk the like of which was purchased on her behalf from a Detroit convenience store?? That shopping list alone is enough to gag a maggot.
Among the receipts: $130 from a Detroit store for popcorn, cheese puffs, Hershey’s milk chocolate kisses, peanuts, Snickers minis, Nilla wafers, ginger snaps, mixed nuts, dry roasted peanuts, M&M peanuts, Kraft caramels and crackers.
That order apparently was connected to a congressional delegation trip to Detroit that cost some $24,000 in air travel expenses plus another $10,000 in miscellaneous expenses.
The records, which are linked Judicial Watch’s website, include flight manifests, expense summaries, copies of receipts and congressional correspondence for Pelosi’s trips in 2010.
There’s not a grand total for the expenditures because of the nature of the reporting: Sometimes there were reimbursements listed for members of Pelosi’s family traveling with her, and it was unclear whether those reimbursements were paid.
