$635 designer shoes

Barack Obama enjoys living like a king, so why shouldn't Michelle Obama live like a queen?
The First Lady was photographed over the Christmas holiday in Hawaii wearing $635 per pair designer shoes by Maison Martin Margiela.
A woman lucky enough to have a job in this economy and working for the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour would have to work 88 hours (without taxes taken out) to make enough to pay for Michelle Obama's shoes.
The Obama's are stayed at an $8.9 million estate for an estimated $4000 per night. To cover the Obama's ten night stay, the minimum wage worker would have to work two-and-a-half years (before taxes) to come up with the $40,000 Obama (translation, we the taxpaying people of the US) is laying out.
Obama has lectured Americans about how they can not expect to live their lives as indulgently as they have in the past. He has lectured businesses about their travel and pay. Yet Obama and his wife live like kings and queens.
The liberal news media has yet to call him out on his extravagance when there is 10% unemployment with no sign of the employment picture improving this coming year (Unless, of course, one counts all the "new jobs" created by the trillions+ in spending by the Obama administration thereby expanding government control over OUR country).

The way they spend OUR MONEY is an insult to every hard working, taxpaying, legal
citizen of this country. GREED is their CREED.
