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."

How is the President "dealing" with the drout, exactly? I understand the show of support, but you phrase it as if him merely showing up will end the drout immediately.

OJama paid a few percentage points in taxes than Mitt Romney. Fair share is total BS. America should get smart and figure out that these politicians are blowing our money on anything and everything except the working class.

I understand the need for security, but I do have a problem with our elected officials and their families parading around like celebrities. How many vacations do the average American family take? Who works for who?

Guess its time to put TMZ to rest. Political issues should be left to the Pundits but its looking more and more like you guys want to lower yourselves to their level. Sad!
