The Telegraph:

Barack Obama’s eldest daughter is spending her springbreak in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends – and 25 Secret Service agents.

he US President’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is staying at a downtown hotel in the city famous for its colonial architecture and well-preserved native American traditions, an official said.

“We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites,” the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.

Malia Obama and her friend are guarded by the Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.

The group, which arrived in Oaxaca Saturday, has already visited the architectural zone of Mitla and the tree of El Tule believed to be one thousand years old.

The sightseeing plan also includes visits to Monte Alban known for its archeological research sites and Oaxaca’s famous artisan quarters.

The Obamas can be fiercely protective of their daughters’ privacy, complaining if the girls are photographed while out on their own.

But they’ve been more than willing to keep bringing them up in the national conversation and to keep them in the minds of voters as the general election approaches.

      I had to google this story and still it took the 4th try to actually get the article

  • Aspenstar

    They are all disappearing. I just copied this entire post and replies and saved it elsewhere.  Something is beyond f’d up about all of this

  • FrillArtist

    Yup. I had to save this article and I know FBI and Secret Service are probably watching but I saved all the pictures as well. It disappeared on Yahoo!, Telegraph and a bunch of other websites. The Obama Media Machine probably had them take it down.

  • FrillArtist

    She deserves a vacation. She must be stressed out from being attended to hand and foot at the White House and treated like royalty. 

  • Imgbuba

    Who (what adult) is watching her?  What 13 year old goes away for spring break?

    • Jim_N

       Apparently entitled Presidential kids do.  We peons wouldn’t understand.  But we’ll sure as hell PAY for it!

  • Donanna

    25 secret service agents are watching out for her. She is as snug as a bug in  arug in high-tech splendour and safety. Ask me what I am doing for my Spring vation: WORKING. I own two businesses and I spend the whole time running back and forth trying to keep the boat afloat

  • Idahoan Taxpayer

    she probably hasn’t fully recovered from her Hawaiian vacation

  • Wgrant12

    Give me a break, 13 yr old and 12 friends – whose paying for this trip? I know whose paying for 25 SS Agents . Was Air Force One used? No wonder we are in such debt with this type tax payer spending.

    • thewaywardwind

      The 747 (VC-25A in Air Force parlance) would not have been used for the kids.  There are 737′s and 757′s in the fleet at Andrews that could be used and they burn a LOT less fuel that 747.  However, I am still mad that the taxpayers are paying one dime for this trip even if they went on the train.  Also, I resent tax dollars being spent on SS guards to watch over 13 kids.  When did THAT become the responsibility of the Secret Service?

  • Jim_N

     25 Secret Service guys + kids is going to require a small fleet of armored SUVs as well as a bunch of other logistics folks.  And there’s no way these are going to be borrowed from Mexican locals.  So the kids and some of the agents can fly in a 757, but the presidential kids’ motorcade is coming in on a couple C17s.

    He Michelle and Barry !  JUST SAY NO!  Or pay for the damn trip outta your own pocket!

    The cost of Obama family vacations has got to be in the hundreds of millions by now…

  • Playrighter

     If Romney is the GOP nominee, one of the first things he should do is pledge to not only pay for his own vacations, but also work for $1 per year — or donate his entire salary to paying down the national debt.

    Let’s see how Obama would spin that….

  • Walt66

     in one story it stated that they flew out of Houston on a United Airlines Flight. Interesting that the state Dept has declared Mexico unsafe and the Pres. allows his daughter to go there. BTW I LIVE IN MEXICO 6 months of the year and no problems here.

  • Honeybee

    First if all I hardly think that this is why we are in debt , you would need to go back a few President to find the blame. Second, why assume that they didn’t pay for the trip. I’m sure the Bush twin experienced the same luxuries a few short years ago, oh my maybe that’s why we are in debt. (wink)

  • Suzie7659

     Get your head out of the sand….really….look at the statistics on how much this man has spent….maybe you don’t mind giving all your hard earned money to the government to redistribute to ungrateful people that don’t work at all….I personally am way too tired after a long days work for all of that!
     

  • Semper Fi

    You are right on the mark here …Honey bee is one of the receivers of our hard earned dollars…or doesn’t pay taxes…Time for a Paradigm Shift in America and it starts at Washington D.C.
    Semper Fi

  • Bill

    You better check your facts Honeybee the Obamas have spent more taxpayer money on vacations in the 3 1/2 years they have been in the Whitehouse than all the former first families in the history of the United States the internet is a wonderful thing you can check all the facts.

  • confirmed realist

    @978fb2fbfbda88b43c7b7feff8bc5057:disqus  fist of all you are an idiot; secondly When the Bush family vacationed it was either in Camp David (the official Presidential retreat in Maryland) Crawford TX or Kennebunkport ME.  The homes in TX and ME are private homes owned by the families.  NOT LAVISH ($3,500 per night) HOTELS.
     
    Here is a list of vacations the Obamas have taken on my $$$:
    – Spring Break 2012, Malia Obama in Mexico
    with 25 Secret Service agents.-
    – President’s Day 2012, Michelle
    and the first daughters in Aspen, Colorado to ski.– Christmas 2011, the
    first family in Hawaii for an extended
    vacation.– Summer 2011, in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., for the annual beach break.– June 2011, the first lady, her
    mother and daughters traveled to South Africa and Botswana.– President’s
    Day 2011, the first lady and first daughters travel to Vail to ski.–
    Christmas 2010, in Hawaii.– August 2010, the first family traveled to Panama City Beach, Fla., for some sun and fun at
    the beach.– August 2010, Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his
    49th birthday bash.– August 2010, the
    first lady and daughter Sasha traveled to Spain for a mother-daughter
    vacation.– August 2010, summer vacation
    again at Martha’s Vineyard.– July 2010, the first family went to Mount
    Desert Island, Maine.– May 2010, the
    first family had a four-day trip to Chicago.– March 2010, first lady and
    daughter spend Spring Break in New York
    City.– Christmas 2009, Hawaii again for the annual break.–
    August 2009, at Yellowstone National Park and
    the Grand Canyon for a short vacation.–
    August 2009, their first summer vacation as first family at Martha’s Vineyard,
    Mass.

    This does not include any trips he has taken on “Official Business” 

  • http://twitter.com/TellyStern Tel-Jonah Stern

    Your assumption is false. Bush girls never did any thing like this. The Obamas also stuck us with the bill on Meesh and Malia’s adventures to Spain and Africa.

    So much for your default Bush hate as an excuse.

  • chamboknows

    Are you the Bush daughters biographer?
    you seem pretty certain..

     No One here is talking about President Bush and his family!!! You are another one who thinks President Bush is the fault of everything.Truth be known,You are living off of a Government handout!!!
    Obama has not done one thing for the benefit of the USA. He is a total DISGRACE to the American People….OPEN your eyes !!!

  • Mm98darwin

    Interesting that Drudge’s reports have all been removed. Big Royalty in action I guess.

  • megamimi

    At what cost to the US taxpayer?
     

    • Jim_N

      best case scenario – hundreds of thousands of dollars.  More likely millions.  25 Secret Service agents don’t get anywhere without millions being spent.

      Who sends their 13 year old on spring break anyway?

      Wow,

  • Eduardo Lopez

    wealthy parents. 

  • ATTILA

    Stoopid taxpayers who elected this kenyan fraud.

  • Mm98darwin

    Anyone but me think it’s interesting to find that EVERY REPORT ON THIS (National and International) HAS BEEN REMOVED????   Our dictator will find this site soon and remove it at well in due haste.

    • Mm98darwin

      not only that, but the post I had 3 minutes ago is already gone. Get ready for November kids, we have to get rid of this intellectual midget.

  • Radiorwanda

     Why is the telegraph link not working? Why are comments closed on fox about this story? Where do we send our nigger comments and the death threats? Is it not working just for me? From the comments here it appears that others were able to link to this story. Surely suck kick ass americans wouldn’t just believe anything they read on some blog. Can someone please provide a link to this story? I want to be just as outrage.

  • janesoutham

    Why have all the news sites pulled this story? Was it a hoax or is it true and they pulled it for security reasons? Can anyone explain this, please?

    • Girlsforhunting

      I think for two reason one they want to keep the kid safe and two they don’t want the tax payer to know what they are doing with our money. That’s what I think.

  • Free Tex

    I didn’t notice any mention of BO and lady M footing the bill for this trip.  I would be willing to bet a Big Mac against a Whopper that the kids and their baby sitt — er, that is Secret Service body guards — didn’t go down on AeroMexico.  I AM a little surprised the First Moocher didn’t take advantage of the opportunity for another vacation.  She works SO hard, dontchaknow.  Ladies and gentlemen, your tax dollars at work. 

    • thewaywardwind

      Oops.  Sorry about a duplicate post.  I hadn’t logged in when I wrote this so I didn’t think it would take.  My apologies. 

  • thewaywardwind

    I didn’t notice in the story any mention of BO and lady M planning to foot the bill for their kid’s trip.  I’d be willing to bet a Big Mac against a Whopper that the 13 kids and their 25 baby sitt…uh, that is Secret Service body guards, didn’t fly down on AeroMexico.  I’m somewhat surprised that the first moocher didn’t go with the kid.  After all, it has been THREE WHOLE MONTHS since she was in Hawaii. She must be exhausted.  After all, she works SO hard, dontchaknow.  I’m thinkin’ this kid is gonna grow up JUST LIKE her mama.  Ladies and gentlemen, our tax dollars at work.

    Hey dumb-ass!! I despise Barry & crew just as much as others, but race has nothing to do with it, and that kind of low-class language only detract from honest debate about ‘regal’ aspirations of these people; not to mention giving ammo to the poverty-pimp race hacks out there who will seize your words to demonartate that the USA if still overtly “racist’, when it ain’t.

       Just like the story of the president taking the whole navy fleet to India at a cost of 200billion a day? You kocksuckers want to believe anything about the prez.

     Jesus God ….who the hell let you out of your gimp box and granted you permission to access the internet ?

  • thewaywardwind

    Uhhh, I don’t call ANYONE that.  It’s not a word I use.  I don’t object to BO because of the color of his skin; rather I object to him because of the way he trashes the Constitution, his wasting of money (like the individual trips to Hawaii that double the cost of flying and this Spring Break trip for the first kid).  By the way, is there a source for what?

    • Radiorwanda

       For this story? and how did he trash the constitution? I went to school with one of the bush daughters. She had SS. And she took them with her on vacations with her friends and boyfriends. You didn’t bitch about that. So shut the fuck up. You want to Obamas not be seen or heard. As if they took something from you. Are they too uppity for you motherfucker. My fucking tax dollars pay for shit I don’t agree with you. You racists think your entitled to freedom. You don’t live here by yourself. Fuck you your wife or hhusband and fuck your inbreed children.

  • irishmare

    I love stories like these which expose the liberal elitists such as radirwanda here. They put the
    insanity and hypocrisy that is liberalism front and center for all to see. Here
    we have the mega rich MSM talking heads who nightly join Obama in the hate fest against the so called 1%ers? The same crowd who have fleets of expensive autos, multiple mansions, some have private jets etc., and they rail against the evils
    of fossil fuels, and feel it’s the gubmints job to dictate what toilets and $50 dollar light bulbs we use?

    One could site thousands upon thousands of examples of blatant hypocrisy the liberal power brokers commit daily yet there is no outrage from the brain dead lemmings that worship at the alter of socialism.

    Liberals are truly a foolish bunch that has to resort to racism, class warfare and lies to keep the lazy and ignorant forever in the dark for their message, their vision for our nation is truly disastrous.

    So I applaud Mr. Limbaugh and the Occupoids for their pulling back the
    veil for a peek into the void.

  • Cat + Eye

  • Semper Fi

    Radiorwanda…are you related to that crazy girl that went off in Florida today screaming Racist Vulgarities and threatend the lives of people because they wanted her to stop and leave the class until she calmed down? You know she wound up handcuffed, arrested, put in the backseat of the squad car and then Tased for spitting and kicking the (2) Black police officers that arrested her for her antics. Or are you just trying to start something in a conversation you have no ability or intellectual capacity to debate an issue that you find false in your mind? Here let me give you a moment to gather your thoughts so you can speak with some literacy and dialect.Attending UT , would not necessarily mean you knew or even associated with the Bush Twins..Alas I think your whole time here has been wasted and you should go back to the “Occupy your own mind” section where your lower vocabulary and limited intellect will feel more at home, don’t you agree…..Semper Fi

    Someone somewhere pointed out how barry is always touching Malia as in a creepy kind of way.  I started paying attention to various photos and it’s true.  

    A poster at WZ ranted that this was a school class trip.  Guess we will never know the truth as w/everything in this admin.  The whole thing is weird.

  • Radiorwanda

    I bet you assholes didnt say shit about this:

    Bushes: Into the Real World
    Newsweek

    May 31 issue – Now that
    the first Daughters have graduated from college (Barbara from Yale and
    Jenna from the University of Texas), what’s next? First up: a taste of
    the spotlight. The two have already sat for an interview and photo shoot
    for Vogue—the first of many interviews they’ll do this summer. Then,
    after a European vacation with friends, the twins will return to
    Washington to work for Dad. They have their choice of jobs: pitching in
    at the suburban Virginia HQ, helping at a field office or perhaps
    hitting the campaign trail. (More)

    • Jim_N

       Umm.  They were college grads, not tweens on spring break 100% on the taxpayer’s dime.  A spring break vaca that likely would have cost the disaster dishonoring the White House his entire net worth – as if he (He?) gave a rat’s-ass…

  • ATTILA

    Did they have the taxpayers pay for that vacation???, along with an entourage of secret service??

  • Girlsforhunting

    No, I think Bush paid for their vacation. Now yes, they may have had a few Secret Service (SS) with them; but the Obama’s have had to have 3 times more SS than any other person in office. Don’t get me wrong I do understand why the kids need the SS its for their safety. But, who the hell sends a 13 year old and 12 friends on break without any parents and 25 SS. Who sends their child on break knowing that people will be voting in a few months for a new person in office. To me this shows people how much he cares about the taxpayers money and how he will spend it if he stays in office for another 4 years.

  • FrillArtist

    It seems like the article is back on Yahoo! They even acknowledged that they took it down. Hmmm….just what the hell is going on?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6GYVHZDBAPB4L4WRU23YP2J5TQ Malinse

    I’m not surprised of her choice of Spring Break.  A travel warning has been issued for Mexico, when Obama was just a little older than her, he spent a “vacation” to a country which had a travel advisory for U.S  citizens, Pakistan.  But no one knows what passport he used or who all he met, though both of his travel buddies are now influential in Pakistani politics and one was a large bundler for his 2008 election.  http://theobamafile.com/ObamaEducation.htm

    Obama does have a long consistent history of throwing people under the bus for political gain. But you probably wouldn’t care to know that.

  • Eduardo Lopez

    You are all a bunch of idiots. Did you all forget how rich Obama is, he doesn’t need your bitch ass “tax payer” dollars. If I had the opportunity, I would send my daughter to the most extraordinary places in the world. And she will love me for it. You are all hurt souls, I hope you seek attention.

  • Berfman

    Eduardo – do you think for one minute that President Obama is paying for the secret service people to guard his daughter?  You are right, he is entitled to pay for his daughter to visit extraordinary places.  He also has the right and the responsibility to pay ALL expenses, just like you and I must pay for ALL expenses for our childrens travel.

  • weshallseeif

    Where were you all when another President was in office and took over 900 vacation days during his term? There is 365 days in a year. Bush was in office for 8 years. 2,920. Subtract 900 from that and you are left with 2,020. So if you continue to do the math; he was on vacation for over 2 1/2 years. No wonder we were not prepared for 9/11. Or the preparing was going on.

  • Khanes

    Since when do 13 years go on spring break? and to Mexico of all places, OH I’m sorry… I forgot that somewhere we told Obama he had the right to use OUR money to by such frivolous things for his children. Would she be going with 12 friends if he weren’t president? Naw, don’t think so! BIG BUCKS! BIG BIG BUCKS! We are so happy to just give you all that money we don’t have to spoil your child! Just makes me sick, that as an American, he rubs his power to do as he pleases, in our faces day in and day out!

  • Ewill2

    The same protection afforded  all children who have ever lived in the White House.  Do your homework and you’ll uncover some SURPRISING facts of what can be called escapades in the past of “White House” children with the Secret Service trailing behind.  At least Malia’s had a healthy cultural aspect.

  • Dee Drew

    Obama’s extravagance is beyond tolerable.  What right does he have to use our money like water?

  • Southetnscarlett67

    Forget who’s paying for it. What kind of parent sends a 13 year old to Mexico for Spring break. I don’t care how many secret service guys are there. That’s insane. One of the parents of the other kids couldnt go and chaperone?

    • kegan05

       My 13 year old CHILD would never go to Mexico on a school field trip, even with 100 Secret Service Guards!  It is totally irresponsible and borders on child endangerment! 

      These dorks have to go, the sooner the better!

      Go Mitt Romney – On to Victory!

  • Sparks

    Just out of curiosity, the man does get a paycheck does he not? Wy are we assuming he’s using tax payer’s money? He, like president’s before him get a salary. Did you ever stop to think that he’s using that to pay for his daughter’s trip?

    • http://twitter.com/IAMPCBob PC Bob

      I would be very happy to ‘assume’ that, except that his salary isn’t large enough to pay for all of these vacations, not to mention the cost of all the SS and other assorted entourage. IF he was paying for them, they would likely go to places like Disney World, etc. But, since the Muppets are paying, hey, the sky is the limit. Right?

  • kegan05

     Pfft!  lmao!  You ARE kidding, aren’t you?

    These Grifters are the original Affirmative Action goofballs who have always have their hands out.  They don’t pay for ANYTHING that the Government will pick up for them.

    Pres. Obama doesn’t come close to GWBush’s title for the MOST vacations of any other president.
    But rightwingers are easily duped by Fox & Frightwing radio propaganda.

       Another stunning lesson in the mechanics of when all else fails blame Fox news.

      Brilliant, and oh so original.

  • kegan05

     Nice try, nutwad, but no banana for you!

    GWB stayed at his HOME in Crawford and conducted the nations business every single day from his own HOME!  He always combined his trips to Crawford with stops at Military Hospitals and Bases where he visited our Troops.  He is still loved by the troops today for those unscheduled and unphotographed visits.  Most of our military despise the idiot in the WH who can’t even pronounce the word “corpsman.”   CORPSE-MAN???  What a joke he is.

  • Rweber7273

    Wouldnt be neat if the Marxist Dictator Obamanatin reads this? Hey Barry, you ever think about those who have to work to pay the taxes that pay for your wasteful spending? Of course not. Its all about you Barry but very soon the truth is going to come out so that no state will put you on its ballot.

    A 13  year old has  no business going on Spring Break to Mexico!!   Rest assured, that the Obama’s are not paying  a penny for this trip out of their own pocket!
    Doesn’t  this make you feel good, that you have been working all week to pay for this???  It is sad that they not only put their daughter in harms way, they put 25 secret service people in, as well! The Obama’s are taking the tax payer’s for a ride! I have, yet to see were they have “tightened their belt” as he told us we should!!! This was a statement made by our so called leader!!
    Makes me sick ~ and to think that some will still vote this ass back into the office, is unbelievable!
    When was  your last vacation???????

    In my humble opinion it is blatantly obvious all this Obama
    bashing is not really political but rather race based. We had a president last
    cycle that was twice the dumb and did all the same crap but nobody did anything
    besides laugh at his uneducated speeches. Now the president and/or his family
    even steps outside the white house and it’s like oh darn let’s find something to
    gripe about. Also to digress they also keep calling him a muslim.. SO WHAT IF
    HE IS? “Ya’ll” need to open a history book, educate yourselves and get your
    head out of the dark ages because this is not a Christian country, hell if
    anything our forefathers were critical of religion and it takes a fool not to
    see the church is one of the foulest and conniving institutions in this country
    .Anyways  It’s all simply just a way of
    pussyfooting around the race issue. Maybe if you got off your computer and did
    something more productive than bitching about having a black president and
    using him as a scape goat to our failures the economy would pick up a little.

    abuse of tax payer money – 25 secret service agents, where are the parents? irresponsible

    Give me a break!  There are multiple legitimate abuses of the constitution by this administration, not to mention the failed economic policies, or the revolutionary marxists surrounding the president. Talking about Obama’s family and their vacation choices is a distraction that plays into his hands. I’ve lived in Mexico with my family and traveled the world, and wouldn’t hesitate to take my family to Oaxaca. Don’t believe the media propaganda.

    All the beautiful places they could have supported in the USA, and they head to Mexico?  Spring Break on the Gulf coast to show it’s ready for tourism. Any of the National Parks would have been a good choice for history.  Mexico? Just say No!

    A list of vacations taken by the Obamas in less than 3.5 years:

    – Spring Break 2012, Malia Obama in Mexico
    with 25 Secret Service agents
    – President’s Day 2012, Michelle
    and the first daughters in Aspen, Colorado to ski.
    – Christmas 2011, the
    first family in Hawaii for an extended
    vacation.
    – Summer 2011, in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., for the annual beach break.
    – June 2011, the first lady, her
    mother and daughters traveled to South Africa and Botswana.
    – President’s
    Day 2011, the first lady and first daughters travel to Vail to ski.–
    Christmas 2010, in Hawaii.– August 2010, the first family traveled to Panama City Beach, Fla., for some sun and fun at
    the beach.– August 2010, Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his
    49th birthday bash.– August 2010, the
    first lady and daughter Sasha traveled to Spain for a mother-daughter
    vacation.– August 2010, summer vacation
    again at Martha’s Vineyard.– July 2010, the first family went to Mount
    Desert Island, Maine.– May 2010, the
    first family had a four-day trip to Chicago.– March 2010, first lady and
    daughter spend Spring Break in New York
    City.– Christmas 2009, Hawaii again for the annual break.–
    August 2009, at Yellowstone National Park and
    the Grand Canyon for a short vacation.–
    August 2009, their first summer vacation as first family at Martha’s Vineyard,
    Mass.

    The South African trip, where the kids were listed as “senior staff” on the flight manifest was controversial because
    the “official” purpose of the trip was to encourage young people living in the
    two growing democracies to become involved in national affairs, but Michelle and
    company also went to tourist events, such as visits to historical landmarks and
    museums, plus a nonworking chance to send time with Nelson Mandela and the
    family went on a private safari at a South African game reserve before returning
    home.The last Hawaii Christmas vacation was approximately $4 million

    This does not include any of the 20 international trips he has taken thus far on “Official Business”

    You would think that a 4 ++ million trip to Hawaii – (Christmas) and then off to Colorado for a skiing vacation would be enough excitement for a few months? We ( common folk) are advised to ‘tighten our belts – turn down thermostat – buy a $40,000 energy car – limit car travel etc’ – yet in three yrs this family has taken approx 15 vacations, shopping trips, theater excursions etc.

    This is just another example of the great GAP ( 99%) and indifference as to the great (media not reporting) economic suffering going on. A JOB is not some min wage to (auto) $14.50 per hr ( absent pension etc) job where you will NEVER buy that car you’re working on – buy a home – or send your kids to college. When they take these trips (ex Brazil) you’d be shocked at the number of Secret Service – numerous SUVs – helicopters – extra cargo plane – money spent to put up (hotels – food) security and the GAS! The summer trip to (Safari) Africa with numerous family members cost us a fortune as did ultra expensive trip to Spain (vacation place of Saudi Kings).

     Meantime there are lots of youngsters ( see Corridor of Shame ) in decaying schools/ kids wearing coats to class – out dated ( 60s) books who live in MOTELS – tent cities – or tenements. Here you have ultra wealthy friends from private school who SACRIFICE nothing – kids of the top 1%. You would think that living in a 132 room mansion – weekly entertainment by country’s top entertainers – exclusive theater – pool – Camp David exclusive woodsy retreat (tennis courts – pool etc) would suffice in these DEPRESSION era times. Estimated cost of flying Air Force One is $181,757 per HOUR (more now with gas prices).

     Ms. Obama has flown to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard ALONE a day or two before President cost US hundreds of thousands more. Meantime foreclosures grown with over 50,0000 mfg plants gone overseas…….a McJob just doesn’t pay the rent .Many food pantries are bare – shelters overflowing (NO room). Imagine at 13 going on a Spring Break (break from what) with your ultra rich pampered friends while multitudes can NOT afford $$$$ medicine – hospital care – help for aging parents. It’s like these folks have won the lottery on our dime.

     NO I am not a Republican but at least G.Bush went to his ranch (min secret service) without a convoy of limos – SUVS – Cargo Planes. This is not Saudi Arabia – our ‘elected officials’ have lost sight that they are NOT royalty. Heck Prince Charles and his new wife when visiting Canada/ US flew commercial with NO army of hairdressers, make up artist – aides – etc. Old Harry Truman was a President who watched the people’s money. He took 2weeks per yr (southern Fla) ——-drove himself HOME after he was out of office and didn’t even have a pension until a few yrs later. Washington is out of control. Raise your hand all of you sending your 8th grader on Spring Break.

    Taxpayers should not be footing the bill for secret service to babysit Obamas kid or her friends while on vacation. Bunch of damn thieves robbing the taxpayers!

    Great, my 17 year old daughter is no longer a $ 1,000.00 tax write off for my 2011 taxes, so I get to put $ 1,221.00 on my credit card to pay my Federal Income Taxes, and this president just blows tons of money on personal trips for his family all the time. Not right, NOT FAIR to the taxpaying Americans!!

    My guess is this little spring break for a 13 year old cost the tax payers more than most will make in a long time.  Didn’t he say Americans needed to tightened their belts?  You think he meant loosen our purse strings so he could rob us blind?

    “We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites,” the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.

    This seems to say that there were no other guests at the hotel.Who paid for the other rooms that were empty? You know who did.

    Pres. Obama better go back and investigate the Secret Service’s behavior on this trip and that of any military sent, in light of the Columbia scandal. I would think he would want to make sure his daughter was never in danger and if she and her friends were around this behavior. Yes, he better go back and check on the Secret Service on this trip, just to make sure his family and daughters were and are safe.
