    Does Me'chelle really need to get to Martha's Vinyard a few hours earlier at a cost to taxpayers of up to $100,000 or more?

    The extra costs related to Mrs. Obama’s solo trip mainly include the flight on a specially designed military aircraft she took instead of Air Force One, as well as any extra staff and Secret Service that had to be enlisted to go with her. She would also have had her own motorcade from the airport to her vacation residence.

    Mrs. Obama’s separate jet travel sends the wrong message on a host of issues, from global warming to the budget deficit to the economy – in which currently so many people can’t afford to take a vacation at all.

    This is not the first time Michelle has gone on vacation ahead of the president on the taxpayers’ tab. Last December, she racked up what was likely more than $100,000 in expenses leaving early for their Hawaii vacation.

    Obama once mused: "It's good to be king".

    Head out in your car. Find a bicyclist. Run him off road and take his clothes: apparently you cannot ride a bicycle these days unless you are wearing a French clown-suit.
