Book by NY Times correspondent: WH aides say Obamas were worried about own personal finances, expensive lifestyle. bit.ly/IhN38D—

Even the president made uncomfortable jokes about why his wife needed so many things. Behind the scenes, aides said, the Obamas were concerned about money: the president’s books could only sell so many copies, and it would be years until he could write more and the first lady could write her own. From vacation rental homes big enough to accommodate the Secret Service to all the personal entertaining they did at the White House, their lifestyle had grown fearsomely expensive.
Kind of takes the wind out of their “Romney’s high-dollar friends” sail, doesn’t it? Poor Obamas and their fearsomely expensive lifestyle!
And there’s more. Never mind the price of arugula, what about the prices of Michelle’s dresses!
It was bad enough that we have a President who has never had to try to make a payroll in his life, but now we learn that he can’t even handle his own finances?
Talk about out of touch. Look in the mirror, President Obama.
