Quote Them: Obama is short on cash, too

"(Michelle and I are) not that far removed from what most Americans are going through. It was just a few years ago that we had high credit card balances, we had two kids, thinking about college. We had our own retirement accounts, wondering if we were going to be able to get enough assets in there."

President Obama,
who could only spend $70,000 on date night last year instead of the $75,000 planned

PS Of course, that doesn't include the "private, mother-daughter trip" to Spain next week for Michelle and Sasha where 30 rooms have been reserved in a five-star hotel in Benhavis near Marbella for their getaway. Or the 10 vacation days for the entire family at an "upscale northeastern resort island of Martha's Vineyard."

The Obamas really do get it. Just last week, my mom wanted to come visit me but couldn't afford the $10 lunch eating out. So we had to cancel our private, mother-daughter trip to Qdoba.

Good to know we have a President who understands the financial plight he's putting us all in.
