Hey, Big Spender

An anonymous White House source has dropped a dime on Michelle Obama’s vacation spending habits.  Apparently it’s so bad even Barack-0 is alarmed

…Mrs Obama, whose fashion choices are widely followed, had been going on ‘wild shopping sprees’, much to the distress of her husband, who, its sources reveal, is ‘absolutely furious’ at his wife’s ‘out-of-control spending’.
…the situation sparked further anger after he and his wife elected to fly separately to the Massachusetts retreat – despite travelling on the same day.

My wife, ever alert to the nuances in behavior of people who misbehave, thinks this is an indication that Michelle is “getting even” with Barack for some transgression (hmm, whatever happened to those hotties  in the background when The One was speechifying?). My theory, totally unsubstantiated by any evidence, is that the anonymous White House source has the initials B.O.  If I’m even close, expect a progressive meltdown in the house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Update (25 August).  The Anchoress is thankful that we can all enjoy our staycations vicariously through the Obamas. “That Eva Peron was right, it really is just as satisfying for us to watch your families of four accessing private and government jets—even two at a time—to travel to your summer homes or Martha’s Vineyard or Bermuda, as it would be for us to fly to Disney or the Gulf Coasts…”  (Tip from American Digest)
