Time for another Michelle Obama vacation...

"Oh my! Where does she find the time?" Having just returned from last month`s seventeen day 'rest and relaxation' expedition to Hawaii, we once again find the first lady valiantly venturing cross country. In an attempt to distance herself from the 'angry black woman' label that has so viciously been tossed in her direction, Michelle sets course to disprove this notion by setting a vision of a lifestyle of happy, carefree, constant jet setting vacations and lavish living. This month we find Michelle on the skiing slopes of Aspen as she promotes the President`s call for "shared sacrifice" from a nation swimming in a sea of debt and trillion plus dollar annual deficits. Last year`s vacation roll call includes visit`s to Martha`s Vineyard, Spain, Africa, Hawaii, to name just a few, as Air Force Two took to the skies in a seemingly non stop world excursion. This year Michelle seems to have upped the tempo a bit by getting off to a fast start that will render her previous record setting pace of vacation destination`s as mere trivial trips to the market down the block. Perhaps Michelle should incorporate her campaign of proper nutrition to the masses while trotting the globe. A kind of world tour inspection of bag lunches like those being conducted in North Carolina. I mean nothing really spices up a vacation like rummaging through a kid`s sack lunch while taking in the best views of the world...
