After continuing vitriolic smears and attacks on Republican Sarah Palin, especially over claims the RNC spent $150,000 on her wardrobe during the failed campaign of John McCain just last year, we now discover that new First Lady, Michelle Obama has added "a full-time makeup artist to her traveling entourage," becoming the first First Lady to do so.
Unlike the RNC using donated campaign money to dress Sarah Palin, this would be on the taxpayers dime as I am sure the cost is taken out of the First lady's "staff budget."
Not only uncalled for, but wrong, is the articles mention of "It took Laura Bush four years to finally look good. It's taken Michelle Obama two months." Laura Bush exudes class, a natural beauty from the inside.
Is it really necessary to employ a "full time make up artist" for the First Lady?
Is this but another example of the Obama's excesses, as was flying in Pizza Chefs for a luncheon for 140 people?
Why are we being asked to sacrifice while they enjoy such excesses? Shouldn't leaders lead by example?
