I’m sure that by now, most of you have heard about First Lady Michelle Obama’s extravagant Spanish vacation. The story that was on the front page of The Drudge Report for days reported that Mrs. Obama’s trip would cost the tax payers around $75,000 per day (during a recession no less)–not to mention, it had photos of her wearing tight spandex leggings and a revealing, inappropriate top. In fact, Mrs. Obama’s vacation seemed so self-indulgent and over the top, that New York Daily News writer, Andrea Tantaros, called her “a modern day Marie Antoinette”.

Ruth Marcus wrote a column responding to Ms. Tantaros. In her column, Marcus conceded that the optics of Michelle Obama’s Spanish getaway might be less than ideal when she wrote the following–

“Let’s stipulate: A five-star resort on the Spanish Costa del Sol was probably not the first choice of White House spin-meisters for a mother-daughter getaway. Especially when the getaway included a posse of 40 friends of the first lady staying at the Hotel Villa Padierna, where rooms start at $330 a night, and photos of Michelle Obama strolling in Marbella wearing an off-the-shoulder number by Jean Paul Gaultier.”

[For the record, that John Paul Gaultier top probably cost over $2000.]

However, Marcus concludes her column by stating that we are all being a little hard on Mrs. Obama, and that maybe we should “give the First Lady a break”.

Well, I might tend to agree with Ms. Marcus if this had been Michelle Obama’s first foray into ridiculous behavior–however, it most certainly is not. Furthermore, if you will all bear with me, I am prepared to bring forth a plethora of evidence that spans back over two years in order to prove–beyond any reasonable doubt–that Mrs. Obama has gone out of her way to deliberately cultivate the image of a spoiled, entitled brat.

Now, let’s all jog our memories back to the Democratic primary. Does anyone remember when Michelle Obama said that, “For the first time in my adult life, I’m really proud of my country?”

I’m sorry, but how bratty and ungrateful can one woman be?! This is a woman who had attended Princeton University, Harvard Law School, was currently married to a US Senator (who himself was currently running for president)–and she was just now proud of her country?! Seriously?!!

Oh, and who could forget during the Democratic primary when she stated that she “would have to think about that” with regard to supporting Hillary Clinton if she became the nominee instead of her husband.

Again, I don’t think that it’s possible to sound much more bratty than that. You think that I’m being a little hard on Mrs. Obama? Well, imagine if in 2012, Sarah Palin was running for president and someone in the MSM asked her if she would support, say, Mitt Romney if she loses. And then, Palin replied to the questioner by stating, “I’d have to think about that”. The media would crucify her and everyone knows it.

And finally, does anyone remember how Michelle Obama would dress her beautiful ten year old daughter, Malia, in dresses to match her’s during the Democratic convention? Well, I personally didn’t have a problem with Mrs. Obama dressing her daughters to match her. However, what should trouble any parent is that her ten year old daughter not once, but on two different occasions wore a low-cut, spaghetti strapped cocktail dress on national TV–just so she would match her mother. (I’m sorry, but that dress is wildly inappropriate for any ten year old girl to wear.)

OK, now I realize that some on our lefty lurkers will be screaming from the rooftops, “But that’s not fair to bring up her kids!”. First of all, I am not judging her daughter (Malia is beautiful)–I’m judging her mother for putting her in two different inappropriate dresses for a child who is ten years of age. Second of all, could any of you imagine if Sarah Palin had dressed her daughters like that for the Republican convention (or if even Chelsea Clinton had worn a dress like that when she was just eleven or twelve)? We would never have heard the end of it! Andrew Sullivan (who is still obsessed with Palin’s gynecological records), Bill Maher, and Sally “the home-wrecker” Quinn (who has implied in the past that Palin is a bad mother for not staying home with her kids) would still be calling her “white trash” to this very day.

Oh, and if any of you are remotely curious, all of Sarah Palin’s daughters were quite demurely dressed for the Republican National Convention.

    What a great post! So fun re-living Michelle's many blunders. But you didn't mention her biggest spoiled brat blunder…her and Valerie Jarrett turning away poor un-insured people seeking medical help from the University of Chicago Hospital where they worked, and made policy.

    Excellent article that I am sure will come in as a handy reference in the days ahead. As Barry becomes less popular and more desperate Michelle will consume more of the expensive oxygen to which she seems to feel entitled. Spoiled Brat will hardly go far enough describing her behavior in the final months as First Lady. Keep those cameras and mics rolling there are many revealing clips to come.

      Thanks so much. And, I agree with you that there's no telling what Mrs. Obama will do next (whatever it is, it will definitely be a hoot).

      Take care. :-)

    The thing is Michelle Obama thinks she is some modern day Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly, which couldn't be further from the truth. After all, those women were classy.

      …."The thing is Michelle Obama thinks she is some modern day Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly, which couldn't be further from the truth. After all, those women were classy. "….

      Chris, you said it perfectly with that line, but I would add in Jacki O as well. (She definitely thinks of herself as some sort of Jackie O.) However, what Michelle O doesn't seem to realize is that there is nothing bratty or spoiled acting about any of those women–they all exuded class (which is the opposite of brattiness or diva behavior). Jacki O once said that, "You can tell how much class a person has by how well they treat their help."

      Anyway, it's always great to hear from you. Take care and have a great night. :-)

    In a way, Michelle's highly inflated self-image is not so surprising given the way she's been coddled by the (old-white-man) system. But she adds an extra measure of narcissism and brattiness all on her own.

    What is more puzzling is how so much of the population just doesn't see her obvious character defects–just as they don't see what a lowlife Bill Clinton is or what a cold schemer Hillary is. Sometimes people just see what they want to.

    That picture with the thumbs up sign wd. have been more honest if instead the two middle fingers were extended.

    I loved it when Michelle My Belle went to Copenhagen to clinch the deal for the Olympics in Chicago, taking Oprah with her, and gave the phoniest, most haughty speech to the committee. You could just tell she was so proud of herself, and so cock sure she was going to win them over. Instead, they yawned !! LOL !! The day we all found out Chicago lost was a jubilant day because it proved to Michelle she wasn't all that ! Ha!

    Oh my gosh! This article is by far my all time favorite and the posts to it have been equally great. Michelle has been an embarrassment to the nation and will go down as the tackiest First Lady ever.

      Oh, and on this quote from you…"Michelle has been an embarrassment to the nation and will go down as the tackiest First Lady ever. "….I think that you pretty much hit the nail right on the head.

    Image is often an indicator of the spirit of a person. Michelle Obama should be thought of as she truly is: an ugly (metaphorically speaking), hate filled human who has had the world handed to her but has no respect for anyone. Despite the irrelevant media's attempt, Michelle Obama is not popular or well liked. She has been "just downright mean".

  11. August 11, 2010

    Today the headlines are coming out defending the modern day brat. The white house after a week of being beaten over the head is saying she was visiting a friend who's father passed away and this was all about tea and sympathy. Again stating that this came off the Obama's dime .. failing to accurately report that they don't pay for Air Force two, the fighter escorts, secret service, vehicles, gas etc etc etc etc etc. Which ends up costing somewhere in the neighborhood of half a million dollars.
    Yeah they may pay for their own rooms, but that is small potatoes compared to the security measures that have to be employed.
    However in reference to your well written article I would remind you that he extravagant taste also runs to some three thousand dollar boots etc. and her sense of fashion is high on our dime, whereas when laura Bush bought new dinner ware for the White House the media went NUTS. But this is something we have seen before in history and it is repeating itself.

    Can anyone else remember Imelda Marcos??????

      Great point about Laura Bush–the MSM would have gone nuts if she would have attempted to partake in even a tiny fraction of Mrs. Obama's diva-like behavior.

      Have a nice day. :-)

    Oh! Susannah!!

    Thank you for such a wonderful article on one of my favorite subjects: the historical figure who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time…..Madame Michelle is so yesterday, as Carly would say…..she could have been such a hit in the 1960s along with Jane, the Ayers and the Underground, but her timing just wasn’t with her!

    She is blissfully (hmm…apparently an emotive state she rarely experiences) unaware she was beamed ahead 40+ years into the here and now. Her total cluelessness has ignited infinite damage to her purported “causes”, including that of the hapless hubster. I could not be more pleased!

    Without doubt, both she and Marie A. were totally unprepared for the positions they were to assume. However, in Marie’s defense, not only was she illiterate in her native German and her adopted French, she was never totally schooled in the myriad of written and unwritten rules of the French aristocracy, and was sacrificed to pay the price. Madame M. has no such defenses, unless one considers her Princeton “thesis” and empirically concludes that she too borders on the illiterate.

      Thank you for your edificatioregarding of Marie Antoinette's lack of literacy. I have always assumed she would have been well schooled, considering her position. However, when one's head is in a basket, I don't suppose it matters . Still, it is difficult to think that such clueless and classless people as Barry and Mishy are capable of reaching the Presidency. Tell me about her "thesis", please? And what of Barry's Galactic contribution to human knowledge in his thesis? I loved your reference to Bill and Berhnadine (sp?-I'm just a high scoool grad, and some of the most elementary parts of grammer completely elude me) and VC Jane and Mark and all the old gang-some of whom I helped the FBI put in jail during and after "The Days of Rage" in Chicago. I'm surprised these two weren't in it. But they were probably holed up with Fred Hampton and his clowns. What a waste of living time. I found some of these people to be very bright, and who could have made important contributions to society. Cie le vie.

    When the family goes on vacation it is paid for from the salary paid to the person employed. The employer does not pay for the employees vacation. Sooooo why am I paying for the Obama's vacation? ? ?

      Thanks so much–I really appreciate it! I've been here (at NewsReal) a little over a month give or take. I've written five other columns here before this one (you can find them, if you're interested, by clicking on my name). I usually post in The Concession Stand (not always, but most of the time).

      Anyway, it's really nice to meet you, and I appreciate the kind words.

    In The Nam the Air Force was gracious enough to provide Rolling Thunder when it was needed. The earth shook like jello, and the long, drawn out booming of thousands of bombs made you glad you were not under that hell falling from the sky. Which is where I'm sure Michelle wishes whe was–far, far away from this carefully documented and brilliantly presented asessment.. These two megalomaniacs are bereft of moral compasses, and have had any common sense they may have once had "educated" out of them. As novelties and curiosities, they are most notable for their lack of understanding how they make America appear to the rest of the world, except when denigrating it by word or action, which is far too frequently done. Clearly, they view the government as their personal oyster, and themselves as entitled to anything they may desire at taxpayer's expense. My question is: Who'll give me what odds that they don't take the china, silverware, linens, and everything else that isn't welded down when they get off Air Force One for the last time? After all, Willy and Hilly did it,so why shouldn't they too?

    Mischelle-chique could be cool on a revised Monty Python series but no, why disgrace the woman for the pain she causes our lying eyes, racist pigs. In the future as I see it in my crystal ball, people reading the thin book of Obama's tenure under accomplishments, one thin page which would read:____Accomplishments:__1) Obama offered to turn states evidence to avoid a harsh prison sentence and save embarrassment__to the Treasury by avoiding their need to borrow the money from UN President Bill Clinton.__2) Obama forced his wife into a berqua saving our lying eyes and keeping the World's fashion__designers from suicidal thoughts.__3) Obama awarded the Medal Of Freedom to,
    Himself
