The daughter of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett got married last weekend. The First Family was there as personal guests. Mrs Jarrett is very, very wealthy woman, so perhaps she could pay for the extra (200+) police protection around the Kenwood Neighborhood?(She lived and the marriage took place all within 1 block of each other) And, perhaps, she could also pay for Air Force One, Marine One, the Secret Service and all the other personal expenses incurred by the Obama's visit? Or perhaps from their own personal funds? The American taxpayers shouldn't have bear these cost. Plus today the temporary service they used for the wedding for the staff hosts and others closed up and didn't pay their employees and these are low paid above min. wage people.

Are you saying that...

a) the first family should not accept any private engagements during their tenure?

b) the first family should not be protected when attending private engagements?

c) the protection was excessive?

d) the first family should only attend private functions with the extremely rich who can pay for their protection?

e) only a very rich person who can afford to pay for such protection should run for pressident?

f) this is the first family to receive such protection?

g) this first family has cost the tax payers far more in real terms than previous first families? If so, I'd like to see the statistics for all first families converted to current dollars.

I don't have a problem with them attending the wedding. I do have a problem with the lavish vacations the First Lady takes. Taxpayers pay for a good portion of them. How much will the the First Lady's attendance at the Olympics cost the American taxpayer? I think Mrs. Obama has been the most expensive First Lady even though we are going through very challenging economic times. She is beautiful and talented, but she is costly!
