Michelle Obama’s taxpayer-funded spending is an embarrassment for the White House

• Daily Telegraph
Although ignored by most of America’s liberal-dominated media, several online US news sites are reporting that Michelle Obama’s grand tour of southern Africa earlier this year cost American taxpayers nearly half a million dollars – and that's just for the flights. This follows in the wake of claims this August from sources inside the White House itself that the First Lady may have spent “$10 million of taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.” Without all the figures available, it is impossible to establish the total cost to the public purse of Michelle Obama’s 42 days of holiday during that period, which included her trip to Spain last year (though not the Obamas' recent sojourn in Martha’s Vineyard).

Hell no not even the president should do so. Can you find this delegation anywhere in Constitution?
What is it going to take to impeach, much less imprison this low life illegal alien bastard?  I body in his bed?  I doubt if that would be enough.
