Moochelle Hits the Slopes in Aspen

Posted by on Feb 19, 2012 at 10:43 am

Goodness knows, it’s been weeks since the poor, bedraggled first lady had herself a luxurious vacation.  Take some time off and relax, Moochelle. Lecturing people about what they eat must really take a toll.

Has anyone reported an avalanche in Colorado?

With the economy on its knees, many American families have had to forgo their annual holiday just to make ends meet.

But barely a month after returning from a luxury Christmas break in Hawaii Michelle Obama is on holiday again – this time at the exclusive Colorado ski resort of Aspen.

The First Lady Michelle Obama is spending Presidents’ Day weekend in the upmarket resort with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, and was seen hitting the slopes – albeit apprehensively – on Saturday.

The Secret Service have been in town for the past few days looking for safe places for the family to relax.

Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo confirmed Mrs Obama arrived Friday afternoon, saying, ‘it’s a privilege to have the first lady here.’ He told the Aspen Daily News he met with Secret Service officers and has placed seven of his deputies at the service of the First Family.

The Obamas are staying at the home of Jim and Paula Crown, owners of the Aspen Skiing Co, the Daily News reported.

Last year the first lady gave a speech at their home, in front of about 150 supporters. Each paid between $1,000 and $10,000 to attend the joint fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee and President Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign.

Nothing like hanging out with the 1%.

    I don’t think the trees grow sideways in Aspen. The photo is tilted to make MO look like she’s NOT on the bunny slope.

    The liberal “elite” whose only goal is their own self agrandizement and grasping for power and wealth are so well represented by Michelle Obama and her husband.

    Having reached the top of the socio economic pile on the backs of both the proletariat and bourgeoisie they have no qualms about enjoying the perks at the top even though they produce nothing but the strife between classes, races, religions and genders.

    then the clueless 51% will vote for her husband in November !

    we’re told, of course, that the frequent, lavish vacations are paid for with “their own money” overlooking the fact that, unless they have some employment about which we are unaware, “their money” is coming from the american taxpayers… not to mention the costs of flying their entourage, secret service protection, etc.

    She likes to stick it to ‘whitey’; it’s in-your-face smugness attempting to convince us that it’s not done in malice.

    “Their own money”. What happened to that stick it to the rich crap? If they are really paying for all of this with their own money, then they ARE the 1%. And I kinda doubt that they are paying rent or doing a timeshare with Mr ad Mrs Aspen Co.

    Where’s a hungry Grizzly when you need one? Oh, I forgot, it’s Winter and they’re in hibernation.

    Abominable Snow Wookie sighted on the Aspen slopes!

    Kids were heard to be hiding their bag lunches for fear she’d confiscate them and force the overfed urchins to eat the proscribed ‘healthy’ goverment approved slop.

    Just wait til her Harvest arrives. Let nothing stand between her and her own well-earned Full Load In Kind.
