Why, of course, honey! There's plenty of money in the stash!
Malaria Obama and her Sidwell School friends vacation in Mexico.
What’s wrong with Camp David?
Let’s not insult the kids, please.
That is not morally acceptable behavior.
Somehow I thought I read that Malia went to Mexico for spring break with Michelle, 12 friends from school and their families. Did she go to both Mexico AND the Bahamas?
The secret service are now babysitters?
Well, when the Clintons were in the White House Hillary made the Marines serve the hors d'oeuvres at official functions...
Arrow points to what's known as the "Michael Jackson Room".
$25,000 per night.
Any bets that's where they are staying?
Two of my daughters are the same age as the Obamas', and their grandmother plans to take them to Europe later this year.
... and stay at a big time resort
Only the 1%. My mother, an experienced tourist of Europe, will choose a reasonably-priced hotel near public transportation.
It’s bad enough that the Obama females are vacationing on our dime, but once again, they’ve brought a bunch of freeloading friends along with them.
I guess Michelle was probably overhead to say, "Let them eat cake!" (Even though Marie didn't actually say that).
I don’t remember GWB and his daughters taking these constant vacations...
good lord zero is just taking us for every little darn thing he can...we are his piggy bank..
I know she went to Mexico last year.
You might recall that initial stories about it were ‘scrubbed’ from the internet in a few hours.
Apparently the NY Times has no problem publishing secrets about our surveillance programs...but a story about Malia’s travels is a bridge too far for them.
As somebody said before, this is all done on purpose, as an "in your face!" to those of us with European bloodlines.
A few years ago we stayed at the towers in a small room and were told that those in the bridge suite paid a minimum of 250K for 4 day weekends, IIRC.
How did they fly there when air traffic controllers have been all laid off?? Oh. Yeah. Right. They have Air Force one.
My two older boys would love to have a quick Bahamas vacation! I’ll just make the secret service take them there! Oh. Wait. We don’t have secret service protection. Never mind.
(And chag sameach - Happy Passover!)
He makes $400,000 per year. There is no way he is paying for it, regardless of the entourage.
He might if it were the only vacation his family had taken this year or the past few, but no way. It’s about $800 per night per person just for the hotel.
The American public does not elect the pres and pay his salary in order to send his daughters, excuse me, the princesses, to resorts. It’s just not part of the job description that it is in any way necessary.
We need to have this info ready, as we are the new media. If we’re quiet about it, then we consent. If we’re quiet because we don’t know, then we’re going to have to make it our business to know.
$400 g. Less than the average stockbroker living on LI who certainly does not send his daughters alone to the Bahamas in order to sit around drinking soda and eating French fries. NO
Mexico was last year.
It certainly doesn't look good in a period of austerity.
I'm not a big fan of kids that age traveling off without their parents. Parents and children have a limited time together before adulthood, but that's the parents' business, not mine.
On the other hand, I'm uncomfortable about making kids into a political issue.
And most all politicians, especially presidents, live like a privileged class, not just Obama.
