Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette on a glitzy Spanish vacation

by Andrea Tantaros

Sacrifice is something that many Americans are becoming all too familiar with during this economic downturn. It was a key theme in President Obama's inaugural address to the nation, and he's referenced it numerous times when lecturing the country on how to get back on its feet.

But while most of the country is pinching pennies and downsizing summer sojourns - or forgoing them altogether - the Obamas don't seem to be heeding their own advice. While many of us are struggling, the First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her "closest friends." According to CNN, the group is expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms, more than a third of the lodgings at the 160-room resort. Not exactly what one would call cutting back in troubled times.

Reports are calling the lodgings of Obama's Spanish fiesta, the Hotel Villa Padierna in Marbella, "luxurious," "posh" and "a millionaires' playground." Estimated room rate per night? Up to a staggering $2,500. Method of transportation? Air Force Two.

All anybody wants to do is smear anything that has to do with President Obama. Anytime anybody said anything at all negative about Bush you were deemed a traitor. It's disgusting and the rest of the world is laughing at us.”

7580 Right. I'm sick of all these sleaz-os using my tax dollar to "vacation" and live the high life. They just don't "get it."
