While most of america is working to keep a roof over their heads and are worried how to feed, house, clothe and educate their family our "common man" president and his family openly flaunt their taxpayer paid expensive travel. News reports and pictures of Mrs. Obama and daughters shopping in a Paris luxury children's store, Mr. Obama sight seeing on his "time off" from his favorite activity of being in front of the telepromtor, and expensive dinners with multiple martinis and wine is not only inappropriate but offensive. Even if their purchases are paid for by their own dollars it shows how little regard he(they) truly have for this countries suffering population. Even President Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy had the good sense and class to not flaunt their extravagance. He could not be less like Kennedy except for his dangerous inexeperience. He may have "given up his private life" to be president but he it was his choice. He owes sensitivity over the displayed arragance and less time spent with his press secretary designating "favorable photo-ops" that show him only in a good light as quoted by the press secretary. If the auto industry had been as good at marketing as is this presidents forte, they would not be where they are today. His well staged appearances and demeaning statements about our country show the true disdain he has for this country and reveals the "empty suit" who is in charge of running it.
