ROFL.

Yes, it’s secure or safe with 50 or 100 SS agents with guns looking after you.

Let’s see you take your kids there without the SS Michelle.

Such a naive airhead.

Oh, yeah, just zip right over to your favorite border town for a day of shopping and a night of clubbing. Perfectly safe...

I thought the State Department issued the travel advice, not the FL.

It’s really safe with a brigade of troops escorting your every move.

Your words are meaningless as usual.
Not everyone has the security you have.

But do be careful out there because there
are some big head choppin’ bad azz dopers...oh wait, they’re
probably friends of your other half.

Michelle, I agree it’s safe. I think Free Republic is willing to come up with the money to send you and Obama on a free trip to Mexico, all expenses paid. You might want to leave the girls with grandma (we are not completely heartless). You two have fun, get to know the people, especially in Tijuana. We know that 18,000 have been killed since 2006, but your husband believes, in humility, that the world loves him. So go & have a great time. Send us a postcard.

ROTFL!!! How 'bout if you don't have a hundred Secret Service agents traveling with you? Is it still safe? What a pinhead.

I've got a hispanic friend who has gone back and forth to Mexico all his life. Right now, he's scared to death to go there. Same thing goes for my son's father-in-law. MObama is FOS.

Mexico is pretty safe if you’re a friend of corrupt officials, drug cartels, felons, thieves, and other assorted scum. Michelle would know.

Why the hell is she an advocate for boosting tourism spending in MEXICO? Is she still so ashamed of her country that she won’t speak up about foreigners vacationing in the US? This is extremely weird!

With the United States Secret Service clearing every venue and forming a corridor around her, she is very safe. However, that’s not how you and I travel (methinks she forgets)

If its so safe, why doesn’t she send the kids on a little vacation with grandma and no secret service protection. I’m sure she thinks Mexico is safe enough to do that. (do I really need the /s)

Don't see much of the little guy. Both Barry and the Beast look like dog-kickers to me. Probably few pics 'cause they can't get the dog to go anywhere near them for a photo-op.
