Posted on 06/17/2011 5:24:28 PM PDT by PROCON
In the coming days, First Lady Michelle Obama will be traveling to South Africa and Botswana to meet with young people from across Africa, including the Young African Women Leaders Forum. In a video message, Mrs. Obama invites young people at home, in Africa, and around the world to follow the trip and join the conversation:
You can join the conversation on facebook and by using the hashtag #YoungAfrica on Twitter. Check WhiteHouse.gov/YoungAfrica for updates from the trip, videos of young leaders, and much more in the days and weeks to come.

How much is THIS trip costing us?
Costing us! I thought this would come out of Obama’s stash?/s
I’ve lost count...her MIL and 500 servants would know, though...
How many intimate friends is she bringing?
Wake me up if she starts tweeting pictures of her hoo-hah - short of that I basically could care less.
Oh...so we’re supposed to be like starving street urchins with our noses pressed to a fine restaurant window where all the patrons inside are feasting on the best there is and all the while we’re thinking ...”if only I were as wonderful as they are”.
Plenty of us are struggling to pay for gas to get to work .... that is if we have jobs. Just like communists the world over - those at the top have a great life while everyone else suffers like slaves.
Is she taking the kids?
Gotta get them an in depth look at backward socialist economies so after they finish law school and go into Democrat politics they can continue Baraq’s legacy.
Oh boy, this is too rich. Michelle is headed off on safari in the motherland and we get to join in on the conversation! How special. This is clearly a good use of tax payer funds. /s
And her mother and friends and family and servants and staff and photographers and chefs and drivers and Secret Service and...you get the gist...
The masses can watch her preach how great African socialism is. Both the little and big skulls full of mush will absorb it all. And as they are bending over taking it, they’ll be happy. How wonderful. It’s 1938 all over again.
“Is she taking the kids?”
I just read this:
First daughters Sasha and Malia, and their cousins Leslie and Avery Robinson, will accompany First Lady Michelle Obama on her official travels to South Africa and Botswana next week.
Visited Botswana and S Africa a few years back ... this is the optimum time of the year to visit. Winter in that part of world eliminates many of the pesky critters that are around in warmer weather ... like creepy crawlies and mosquitoes. The days are warm nights are mildly chilly. The timing of this vacation by Michelle is intentional ... no question.
Great. I hope Moochelle gets a picture of her sorry husband’s home village in Kenya saying it was his birthplace.
Good to see the dear youngsters won’t suffer cultural deprivation this summer.
It’s “Obama stash” NOT “Obama’s stash”.
Guess we need an FR course in Ebonics. Get with it will ya?...
Sorry, my bad. ;-(
I’m proud that I have to give up my vacation so the first lady can have hers.
For crying out loud.... They are doing as much as possible since they know full well Obama will not be elected in 2012.
We need the obligatory picture of the skeleton kids there. You know the one where the flies are all over their faces and they are wasted away to basically brown skin on bone. Because we need a visual reminder of just how good it is there...
Look it’s ok with me but if you want to improve at all, you’re going to have to place your tongue between your molars and bite down with all the force you can withstand or until your tongue becomes all swollen and bloody and it’s hard to talk; whichever comes first. Then you can proceed to talk ebonics (no one will know that you’ve never taken an actual course in it because it will ‘sound’ like you have)
Lewinsky’s first tryst with Clinton was in November 1995. Her last ones were March 28 and 29, 1997...
Hillary Clinton, D-NY, at an event with former Ambassador Joe Wilson, said, “I’m delighted to be here with Ambassador Wilson. He and I did travel together to Africa and, sort of, paved the way for the president’s trip the following year, which was historic.”
That Africa trip was in March 1997.
Every time a first lady go to Africa the president breaks up with his girlfriend- or boyfriend in this case...
Thanks for the advice, but I think I will stay with the keyboard version of this strange and unknowable language. ;-)
*sigh* suit yourself you fuddy duddy.
ROFLMAO! Thanks I needed that.
Good to see the dear youngsters wont suffer cultural deprivation this summer.
I just read more...
Michelles mother, Marian Robinson, is also going...natch! She goes on all the trips! It seems that the nephew, Avery Robinson is a young man, about 18 years old, and his sister, Leslie Robinson, is around 14 years old.
Does Barry have any brother-in-laws that we know about?
Seems like there should be one sleeping on one of the many sofas in the White Shack.
Probably just a few million.
Cut her a break. It’s been at least five days since Michelle had any vacation time.
Safari at Game Reserve Caps Michelle, Mom, Sasha and Malia’s ‘Official’ Africa Trip
Honoring Nelson Mandela part of the itinerary
The trip ends with a private family safari at a South African game reserve before the return to Washington on June 27.
She will be accompanied by her daughters Malia and Sasha, her mother, Marian Robinson, and her niece and nephew, Leslie and Avery Robinson
Vacation Gal hitches a ride on a donkey cart
Does Barry have any brother-in-laws that we know about?
Craig Robinson, father of Avery and Leslie, is the only sibling of Michelle Obama.
This whole family of equal-opportunity, affirmative-action grifters makes me ill. May they rot.
And, believe me, he sucks as the Beavers Men's basketball coach, but he will probably be around here as long as 0bama is around, then, buh, bye!
Well, since we can’t afford to take the kids on vacation this summer, I look forward to following the first posse on their swing through the land of their peeps, and to sharing their personal safari in Botswana
Maybe we’ll make some popcorn
“This whole family of equal-opportunity, affirmative-action grifters makes me ill.”
What do you mean? Michelle and Craig didn’t pay for Princeton? lol
“.....father was a city water plant employee and Democratic precinct captain, and Marian Robinson (née Shields), a secretary at Spiegel’s catalog store.”
taking her children, their cousins, her mother, and probably hundreds of retainers
Can’t wait to watch the kiddies enjoying mealie meal and petting giraffes
I understand that Moose-smell is going to meet with Winnie Mandela. Perhaps Winnie can give Moose-smell some hints on how to “accessorize,” with her signature designer necklaces, made of 100% Malayasian rubber.
Maybe they can bring back the real bc.
