    Not only is she taking her daughters but also her mother and their cousins as well as BET tv. Are you f'ing kidding me?!? And they are trying to label it as an outreach trip. Last time I checked we already gave Egypt 2 billion and forgave 1 billion to create jobs.
    How about a trip to Israel or one of the other countries that actually help us and are friendly? Or is Obama so stupid as to think that his "uncovered" wife and daughters can impress the Muslims when he couldn't?

    How many struggling American families can afford to take an expensive vacation of this nature at this time in our economy. And how many of them invite BET to join them.

    This is an absolute outrage. Are they really this out of touch with the American people and their plight? I've been debating many of you about how you feel that Obama isn't doing enough for the unemployed. This should show you just how out of touch he is.

    I bet it is costing $200 million a day too

    This is the worst travesty since Obama chartered a jet to fly his dog

    If this doesn't outrage 90% of the libs on this forum then no debate is worth having.
    Arguing semantics about this law or that proposal is one thing but this has NO upside for any of us NONE.

    If you defend this ridiculous BS and then try to argue economics in another thread 10 minutes later your credibility will be shot.

    I'm no "Lib" and I'm not "outraged."

    Christ, people go on vacation. Presidents go on vacation (not really, I just like saying that). Presidents' families go on vacation. Deal with it, it's not likely to stop anytime soon.

    As for BET... You understand that BET is a network whose target audience is Black people, right? Michelle Obama is Black. Odds are more than a few folks in their core audience will find the highlights of the trip interesting. and who knows, maybe BET is picking up some of the expense... I'm sure they're paying their own way at the very least...

    For what it's worth, I'd invite BET to come along on my vacation, but I doubt they would be interested.

    I for one am outraged!

    How dare she vacation outside the USA. Why can't she take her kids to Disneyworld like real Americans?

    I don't particularly care about how much this trip cost, but the perception is just horrible. You don't tell people they have to cut back and then go on lavish trip after lavish trip. It just looks exactly as described, as if they are just completely out of touch, or worse don't care.

    your right, some family's are fortunate enough to be able to afford extravagant vacations. But they don't do it on my dime when I'm struggling and then try to raise my taxes later to make up for it.

    Where was the scrutiny during Bush's term or any other Republican President? This is just right wing garbage.
