Tell me how you really feel, Michelle

Dear American  Taxpayer,

I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand                    
dollars for my vacation in Spain. My daughter Sasha,
several long-time family friends, my personal staff and                    
various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just
haven't lived until you have stayed in a $2,500..00 per night                    
private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury                    

Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two                    
and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be                    
sure we were safe and cared for at all times. By the way,
if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly                    
recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella ; great                    
lobster with rice and oysters!

Air Force Two  (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to
Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons                    
of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere
1,031 tons of CO2. These are only rough estimates, but they                    
are close. That's quite a carbon footprint as my good
friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens                    
to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive
less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.

I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food
on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do                    
appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work                    

I was really exhausted after Barack took our                    
family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I
just had to get away for a few days.


Michelle Obama

Thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to
India ! You people are really the best.

P.S. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha's
Vineyard ; it was fabulous. And thanks for that second smaller                    
jet that took our dog Bo to Martha's Vineyard so we and the                    
children could have him with us while we were away from the
White House for eleven days.

P.SSS. Oh, I  almost forgot to thank you all                    
for our "date weekend" in New York and to say thanks
also for our two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000                    
square foot house was great!

And finally, thanks for asking, we had a great time taking Air                    
Force One to Chicago to tape our segment with Oprah a couple
weeks ago, replete with full security, a separate plane for                    
armored limosines and a full contingent of                    

Remember we all have to share the pain of                    
these economic times equally!                    
Love to redistribute- share- the
