Greta Van Susteren has sounded off on her GretaWire about Michelle Obama’s lavish vacation to Spain during tough economic times. She’s not impressed:
GretaWire: “I just read an article in this morning’s newspaper about the First Lady’s star power and the Democrats desire to get her out on the campaign trail for candidates. I thought that was a great idea until her vacation in Spain last week. Now I think her presence is a liability. Taking a splashy foreign vacation at this time was dumb. I don’t begrudge her a vacation but the huge cost – and foreign – is a p/r nightmare. Americans are tightening their belts right now because of the dismal economy and she has a very fancy high profile holiday. To the extent that her vacation paid hotel workers, it would have been politically sound to pay American hotel workers. And it does not help her p/r that she told Americans to go to the Gulf to vacation to help the Americans struggling from the BP leak and she went to Spain.” . . . Read More
