And for someone who is talking about being able to register with "Joe Six Pack, and Hockey Mom's and all those other small town middle class Americans this just isn't cutting the mustard for me. This would have been the perfect timing to be a Recessionista, purchasing a few outfits to mix and match, not having a spending spree on a wardrobe that you won't be pictured in twice! There is nothing middle class about this and frankly with the economy being the way it is it makes me wonder if this type of outrageous spending will follow them to the White House and if I will have to pay for trips and clothing that I could never afford. I don't know what the other party is doing, but I feel that if this type of spending is going on with them, then it will come to light and you will see another post like this from me!
