(CNN) - High school reunions, work Christmas parties, brunch with the in-laws, there are a lot of events spouses are obligated to attend. But apparently meetings with the President of China is not one of them for first lady Michelle Obama.
President Barack Obama travels to California for a sit-down with his new counterpart President Xi Jinping this weekend, and he will be going stag.
o good grief
A snub is when Michelle goes to China and Barack doesn't.
Oh my – somebody grab the fainting couch!
What have they done to show their friendship to the USA in the last 50 years besides steal our tech ,dump their junk products produced with their cheap labor while their politicans steal the profits and pay the workers dimes on the dallar .
This is terrible. I think Issa should do an investigation.
I can't blame her because she has her daughters to think about. She can't alway be expected to be at these things.
Michelle doesn't want her free lunch and vacations to end yet so she is hard at work what ever that is.
well guess she doesn't care how the US looks to the world or the message she sends.
There was no reason for the First Lady to travel to California. Could you imagine all the right-wingers complaining about her being there? Now they'll only complain about her not being there. Damned if she goes or doesn't go. Thanks for throwing out the red meat, Fox News Lite.
Why would anybody in there right mind want to be in Palm Springs in the Summer ?
Trouble in paradise? Lol. Michelle must of been told she had to tone down her massive shopping sprees due to the IRS scandal. This presidency is an absolute disaster. I can barely put shoes on my kids feet to go to school and Michelle is out spending millions of our tax dollars on her closet. It's highly offensive for those of us who still work. My wife lost her health care and got cut back to part time due to Obamacare and I'm next. I hope next time Michelle is shopping on our dime she gets robbed so she knows how it feels. I am so disgusted with our government I wake up every morning wishing it was just a bad dream.

Why do they need high speed internet?
Because most of the completive world has high speed internet !
And unless we educate our children to compete in a world economy , they will be as out of touch with reality as you !
Is it a crime if she doesn't go? If she went to CA then the haters/birthers tea trolls would be complaining that she is wasting taxpayer money.
