Let them eat fruit cake
As Americans struggle to enjoy Christmas this year and look ahead to 2013 with anxiety and dread because of the higher taxes, health care problems, and possible unemployment, our entitled betters in the white house splurge with taxpayers' money on 54 huge Christmas trees. Never mind that they won't even be at the white house on Christmas, rather taking a 20 day, $4million, Hawaiian vacation.
But as long as Michelle gets to enjoy the trappings of power and luxury in ways too extravagant to have been imagined before her, it's fine if the little people, from whom taxes were coercively seized to pay for it all, must sacrifice.
