Michelle Obama: It's a 'Sacrifice' to Travel to Europe to Pitch Chicago for the Olympics

And the award for Chutzpah of the Year goes to...Michelle Obama!

In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her "dear friend" and "chit-chat buddy" Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow's visit by President Obama, is a "sacrifice" on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. "As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days," the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, "so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home."

Is there anyone left, left of center, who knows what words mean any more? A "sacrifice" to travel to Copenhagen, flying first class, staying in a five star hotel...
...yeah, that's sacrifice! Probably left her personal chef, trainer and masseur at home and had to rough it with hired talent!

I looked up "sacrifice" (Michelle might want to when she gets a chance)
the surrender or destruction of something prized or desirable for the sake of something considered as having a higher or more pressing claim.

Hmm. Wonder exactly what Michelle gave up for this trip? Poor baby!
