I understand there are people who sincerely believe the trip
to SA and Michelle's decision to take family members with her
in this time of austerity was poorly advised. I have suggested
maybe an inquiry is appropriate although probably more expensive
than any monies that might be recouped. Perhaps there
would be some value in setting some common sense
guidelines for future junkets. Since the republican party owns
the house where simple majority rules, I see no problem
with them getting this off the ground and running if there
is truly such a sense of outrage.
My concern from the beginning has been Rob's vitriolic presentation.
Oh yeah! An angry republican. Like I didn't already know that.
The insinuation that Michelle Obama deliberately defrauded
the public and stole a half million dollars is ludicrous.
The difference in cost between her nephews going and her
nephews not going is certainly not more than $10,000, if that.
What will be more of a travesty is if the republicans spend
$150,000 on a political witch hunt. I don't think they will.
This is all sideshow and theatrical moral outrage.
