Time to Cut the Good-Time Kids' AllowanceAmericans have come to expect Michelle to wear $500 sneakers and carry $2,000 purses
while dining on lobster and caviar prepared by her personal chef and traveling to five-star hotels on the Spanish coast. They are used to her wastefulness -- and her hypocrisy, considering the lavishness that occurs while the Obamas ask Americans to make sacrifices for the good of the nation, vacation on oil-stained beaches off the Gulf of Mexico, and have patience while the president socializes the economy against the will of the people.
It is time for Congress to intervene and put the kibosh on the spending of a president who has no idea, or who does not care, that his behavior is highly inappropriate. He parties continuously at the White House, entertaining his Hollywood supporters with music, dance, fine food, and wine. One would have expected that the 2010 midterms would have provided a much-needed reality check and led to the end of the glitz and glamor. Apparently not, and it is therefore time for the parents to cut off the apron strings, tear up the credit cards, and budget the children who seemingly were never taught the value of a hard-earned dollar. -- American Thinker: The House Should Curb Obama's Extravagant Lifestyle

And then will come the cries of racism.

Remember one of the first things we learned about Obama was he liked the oval office nice and toasty. He didn't even follow his own advice and turn the heat down in the white house. I used to live in Hawaii, too, but that doesn't give me Obama's permission to keep my thermostat at a comfy 75-78 degrees. I'm supposed to keep it at 68 to save the freaking planet. Damn, I hate that kind of dual-standard crap.

Eleanor Roosevelt used to go to the bargain basement at Filene's.
As for Obama's problem with being cold because he grew up in tropical paradises like Hawaii and Indonesia, please. I grew up in South Florida. I moved to Virginia last year. I hate hot weather. In Florida I used to keep the a/c cranked down, as did everyone else in Florida. No one liked the heat except old people.

Andrea -'Twisted Spinster' - I know that one.
Years ago I would enter the family room in the winter. My brother would be wearing a tee shirt. Dad had a sweatshirt on, like me. Mom would be wrapped in an afghan
The only people I knew that wanted the heat cranked up were those who were elderly or those with poor circulation.
