With money comes its privilege – that’s for sure.
The Obama’s are millionaires who try to come off as real, regular people. But that sham doesn’t really work when you take a summer vacation at a $35,000 a week Martha’s Vineyard rental.
It also does not work when you try to go shopping. This is a great post about Michelle Obama’s interest in an organic fresh food market in Washington D.C. and how she shut down roads and used three armored cars to go a block down
the street to buy $5 eggs. Read the post here.
Now as first lady we all know she can’t really just walk down the street – there needs to be protection and provisions for her security. This is understandable. What is a hoot is the pricey, organic food she is buying while the country is in a recession, people are loosing jobs and their homes, but her concern is expensive organic cherry tomatoes and kale.
