Bachmann attacks Obamas over 'life of excess' during address at CPAC.(TheHill).Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) criticized the Obamas for living a "life of excess" in her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday, questioning the first family's amenities in the face of budget cuts.
They deserve to live in the White House, they deserve to fly on a private plane… [but] this is a lifestyle that is one of excess," she said.
"We found out there are five chefs on Air Force One. There are two projectionists who operate the White House movie theater. They regularly sleep at the White House in case the first family wants a really, really late show. I don’t mean to be petty here, but can’t they just press the play button?” she asked.
She went on to note that the Obamas have a paid dog-walker, and asked "Why are we doing that when we can’t get a disabled veteran in for a White House tour?”
Bachmann said $1.5 billion in government funds are spent on the White House and amenities.
Hmmmm.....Flashback 2010: "The hard truth is that getting this deficit under control is gonna require some broad sacrifice, and that sacrifice must be shared by the employees of the federal government," Obama said. "After all, small businesses and families are tightening their belts. Their government should, too."Read the full story here.

It's been nothing but ONE LIE after another.
It's alright to tell the middle class I'm not going to raise taxes, and then turn around and tax them, but it's OK for THEM to spend 1.5 billion a year for services.
If it's OK for that to happen let the democrats pay for it out of their pockets.....!
The dummies don't realize it yet, but they've had the wool pulled over their eye's and BHO and Mickey are laughing all the way to the bank.....    See ya in the cheese line dummies....!
