"Someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie..." - Granite Grok

“Someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie…”

Our friend Jane just sent me a link to this absolutely wonderful bit of hypocrisy:

According to Michelle Obama,

“The truth is, in order to get things like Universal Health Care and a revamped Education System, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie so that someone else can have more.

Notice the inference that the pie is only just so large….and the stunning lack of dismissal that the pie can ever get larger (note to Michelle – didn’t the millions you received from your hubby’s books increase your slice of the pie – with no need of arm twisting of others?  That the purchasers of those books were voluntary?).  The willingness to just disregard the actual evidence at the end of your bank statement….

Oh, really? Who is the someone who gives up a piece of the pie?

On October, 15,2008, Michelle Obama spent $447.39 on room service (for 2) at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for an afternoon snack of Lobster Hors D’Oeuvres ($50.00), Whole Steamed Lobsters (100.00), Iranian Osetra Caviar ($150.00), and Bollinger Champagne ($44.00)

See the Michelle Obama wealth redistribution quote below, and the enlarged receipt for the sumptuous snack, signed by Michelle Obama.

Go look at the receipt and ask yourself if you donated to the Obama campaign:

Did I just help to buy her lobster pie?
