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."

What a joke. Must be nice to be able to just hop on your plane and go skiing. The Obamas suck! Worst president ever. And he's a Muslim.

Hang on Clinton is getting a haircut or is a BJ on the tarmac. Shut down the airport. Same presidency different day. I know it is Michelle. I can't imagine if Hillary runs for president. She will fake a head injury again so she doesn't have to debate.

You know between Rounds of Golf (160... and counting) and vacations the Obama's have. You wonder why there is no middle class.

She is tone deaf to the regular people. Also by body language it seems like she and hubby are having problemos.

I bet these Richie rich people are the same ones who give Obama his millions every time he comes out to LA to beg. Now they get to see what it's like to be inconvenienced by an Obama.

I was wondering why my taxes are so high. I paid for a private jet flight for this chick and her kids to fly to Aspen, along with salaries and hotels for a ton of secret service people. Awesome.

Obama abuses his presidential power. He does not abide by the Constitution. He makes/changes laws without going through Congress. That is for starters why he is a dictator. How is he ruining our country? The Affordable Care Act....the biggest scam/fraud ever perpetrated by any President of the United States. The only lie this man never told was when he was first running for President he said he wanted CHANGE. And, change is what we are getting. Scandal after scandal....IRS...EPA, etc. Our deficit over the top....raising it and raising it and raising it. He and his wife live like a KING and Queen with their lavish vacations, together and separately, including other members of their family other than their children; allowing their child to go on a vacation (without any parents/chaperones) with her friends with only the Security Service as their chaperones. A $12,000 dress for Michelle when this Presidency is claiming income inequality. No accountability. No answers/accountability re Benghazi. You need to read a book on our Constitution.
