Michelle Obama

Shuts Down Aspen Airport

Cool Your Jets, Richie Rich

breaking news

0215-michelle-obama-01Michelle Obama and the extremely rich collided in the air Friday ... when the Aspen Airport apparently shut down for an hour to facilitate a fun-filled ski weekend for Michelle and her kids.

The First Lady flew in late yesterday to the ridiculously in-your-face show of wealth on the tarmac.  According to the New York Post, the airport was shut down for security reasons and some private jet setters were just PISSED.

It's one of the most congested weekends of the year at the Aspen Airport ... several hundred jets descend on the ski city for the long President's Day weekend.

And speaking of presidents ... the current one was not there.  He went to Cali to deal with the drought.

It's kinda funny if some of the whiners are people who support Obama.  Like the old saying goes, "Liberalism ends where inconvenience begins."

That's what their Hollywood money bought. Another "elected" official's family that doesn't have to live like the peasants who elected them. Hunger Games anyone?

Ask people who are buying the goverment .... They don't pay taxes and want the 99% to be slaves in a private world where the elite has billions and think that big government is bad ... This country is becoming so hard to live in ... Controlled by rich people

What else would you really expect from a person of arrogance and also being from Chicago. She is a disgrace to the Title First Lady. This is also the same one that had her law license revoked do to illegal activities.

The same thing would have happened for ANY first lady. It isn't as if she did it to make people mad... it is just what happens when you have someone who needs that much security. Be mad when it is someone like Kanye or Madonna who THINK they need all that security, but really no one gives a flip where they go or what they do.

Truth    

The Obama will get divorced after Obama leaves office. Meaning that their marriage is as fake as everything else about Obama.

Oh TMZ... Great headline grabbing, but NOT true. If you want to blame someone, blame the Secret Service. THEY chose to delay arriving/departing flights, NOT the First Lady.

I wonder how she trained that raccoon to sleep on top of her head when she's out in public?

Michele and Obama love spending the Taxpayers Money on Fun and Games for their friends and themselves, while so many are still un-employed, many dropped from their chosen Health Insrance. Will Michele be eating only healthy food over the weekend?

I'm sure these same rich people couldn't care less if what they did were to inconvenience regular folks. They are just annoyed that they are the big dog in the room that day.

The difference is that Kanye and Madonna go on vacation and spend their own money, not taxpayers.
