The White House has confirmed that Michelle Obama and her daughter Sasha will fly to Spain's Costa del Sol for a 5 day vacation (sans the President) from August 4th to the 8th. This raises the question when the President and others on the left claiming CO2 is an imminent threat to the planet and they want to tax carbon so people will cut back on the use of it, what kind of an example are they setting by flying 5,000 miles on vacation?
A number of other questions come to mind as well. In recession should the president's family be throwing either their money or the tax payer's money (actually both) around so freely? And while the President has admonished people for going to Las Vegas, it isn't nearly as long a flight and any money they spend will go into America's economy, clearly a trip to Spain won't.
Michelle Obama has reserved about 30 rooms for herself and her daughter,
their friends and bodyguards at a five-star hotel in Benahavis near Marbella,

Howard Dean Charges that Fox News is racist
Once again the Democrats reach into their tool box to find there only tool they have is charging the other guy with racism.
“I don’t think Newt Gingrich is a racist, and I don’t think you’re a
racist,” Dean told Fox News host Chris Wallace, “but Fox News did something that
was absolutely racist. They took a — they had an obligation to find out what was really in the clip. They had been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap and this business and this Sotomayor and all this other stuff.”
When Wallace interrupted Dean to point out that Fox News did not
air the excerpted Sherrod footage until after the Obama administration had fired her based on it, Dean shot back: “It was about to go on Glenn Beck, which is what the administration was afraid of.”
So even when it was shown that Fox didn't cover the story until AFTER the White House had fired Sherrod, they were still racists because the White House was afraid of what they would do?
It sounds as if the Democrats have watched Tom Cruise's movie, Minority Report, one too many times (In Minority Report, they would arrest people before they committed a crime).
When you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything
When you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything is an old statement to indict people who simply don't take a stand. But what happens when you are so committed to something that you will resort to anything?
The Daily Caller has released the latest batch of JournoList messages, and
it's a shocker: the journalists and other assorted left-wing
intellectuals (!) debating what apparently was the hottest topic of the hour, Sarah Palin's son, Trig. I had thought that the belief that
Trig was really Bristol's baby was an insane idea held only by Andrew Sullivan. It is an insane idea all right, but it turns out that it was believed, or at least taken seriously, by a number of liberal journalists--while some others, to their credit, tried to restore a sense of decency to the liberal
press. Beyond that, the tactics of how to spin Palin's fifth child in a way that
could damage the Republican ticket was seemingly an obsessive concern of these
journalists. It is a sad spectacle.
