Warning, this could make you angry. Michelle Obama, daughters and entourage flew via Air Force Two to Belfast, Ireland for a brief visit with the President June 17 as he was attending the G8 conference. Michelle and daughters then flew to Dublin and spent the night in a $3,300 per night room at the 5 star Shelbourne Hotel. While in Dublin they will visit the Trinity College Library to explore President Obama’s family roots, attend a performance of the Riverdance Troupe and visit a national forest. Does anybody see any diplomatic significance to their trip?

I see a quick little vacation on OUR money before they travel with the President later this month to Africa which will purportedly cost us taxpayers $60 to $100 million. But they don’t have the money to provide White House tours.
