I knew there was a reason I like her

I really like her too. I'm so proud of the Obamas, and so glad we elected them!

that's ridiculous. secret service detail and interruption of a taxpayer-funded government agency for what purpose? a photo op? the obamas act as if they have zero respect for taxpayers. times are tough, cut out the unnecessary wasting of money.
