How Many People Does it Take to Put Up Obama's Christmas Tree?

No, it is not a joke. The answer is tens and hundreds of White House workers. So, while you are struggling to even go out and afford a Christmas tree, much less gifts and ornaments in this economy...while you struggle to make sure your kids get at least a decent Christmas, Queen Michelle and the fam are using YOUR money to lavishly decorate a Christmas tree....NICE:
A new time-lapse video released by the White House reveals the sheer scale of the operation to erect the official Christmas Tree of the First Family with hundreds of workers visible as the Douglas fir begins to take shape.

Grown in Pennsylvania, the tree - which is eighteen-and-a-half feet high and nearly 13ft wide - was received by Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia last week and took four-and-a-half days to be decorated.

Why Couldn't Queen Michelle taken time from her crusade to kill the PTA and other fundraising organizations and calling her own kids fat to decorate it herself, with maybe a staffer or two to help, rather than hundreds? I mean, to my family, we actually like to decorate the tree ourselves. I guess having servants do all the work is a tradition with the Obamas, I guess.
