The Big Lie

Towards the end of our summer visit to Estacion de Benajoan (where I am glad to report the trains are again running even as they continue to upgrade the line), I was astonished to read a report that Michelle Obama was coming to stay for five or so days in Marbella down on the coast. Speculation was rife the President himself might follow, a cake had been ordered for his 49th birthday. Then stories began appearing about her entourage and the five-star hotel where they were staying. The first I read was in the New York Daily News jan 22, 2011 – for sale. order prozac online c.o.d. buy no prescription prozac online . prozac no rx. prozac mg. australia, uk , us, usa. by columnist Andrea Tantros.

It seemed, and still does to me, thinking as an American and not a European, a bad political call. The US economy is tanking, houses are being repossessed and unemployment is growing. I rather thought it might be the wiser thing to take a break in the good ol’ US of A. Finally, if she was travelling with so many it was extravagant. The facts, however, tell a different story – it wasn’t 40 freeloaders, but two female friends and four daughters, and all were paying their way. Yes, the Secret Service was there and others. This is normal no matter where the FLOTUS travels.
