Why is it that leftists only insist that leftist President’s daughters be left alone. If they are going to be treated and act like royalty while their parents continue to have a “let them eat cake “ attitude to the little people of this country, then by all means continue to publish stories about their rich and famous lifestyles. We ARE paying for them, after all.

Slow news day?

The US First Family is entitled to SS protection, and in today's sick world with terrorist abductions and ransom and whatnot, I don't begrudge the kids the safety. It's not their fault their Dad is President. (It's ours, but that's a different topic...)

We do not live in North Korea. If the press reports the kids are holiday, that is called freedom of the press. You are naïve to believe this is a safety issue.

News cannot be reported if it has to do with the Dear Leader...unless, of course, that report is worshipful.

It has nothing to do with “privacy”. The WH is embarrassed that word of the first daughter's pricey spring break leaked out especially when school kids who worked for their trip to Washington DC can't visit the WH due to “budget cuts”. Wouldn't it have been nice for the Obama brats to have foregone their spring break so that other kids could tour the WH?

I’m not sure it is the report about the daughters, per se, that is the problem. It might be that earlier this week they were in the Bahamas, and now they are skiing in Idaho. All this costs tax payers money for the SS to be protecting them. We may even be footing the bill for the air travel (don’t know). Considering we are in “sequester” still, it just looks bad.

Yes, it *looks* bad. Which is why the lapdog news that reported it in the first place was so quick to comply when they were asked to spike the story.

But it’s too late. Everything is forever on the internet. I wonder if the story is cached on Wayback?

"The US First Family is entitled to SS protection"

Not really (Unless you follow the Wilsonian belief of the Presidency in regards to SS not Active Duty specialist), but that is a different topic.

If one dime of public resources were used in this time of sequestration then these trips would be considered "waste and abuse" under, fraud, waste, and abuse.

Military readiness is suffering but we use public resources to jet-set the family of a guy who won a popularity contest? Outstanding priorities we have/promote in a country that is $16 tril. in debt.

The SS protection is not the point. The point is that while the rest of the nation struggles, they continue their extravagant vacations and lifestyle of the rich and famous with the kids taking two vacations in two weeks. It’s not just the SS, it’s the additional entourage that goes with them, friends, handlers etc and all at our expense.

Those two fascists made public figures of their kids, using them whenever it suits their political purposes and they flaunt their “privilege” while everyone else cuts back. They have repeatedly put their kids up front politically and that makes them public figures. Too bad, so sad and I don’t give a rat’s ass about their spawn. They will grow up to be the same type of fascist democrats that their parents are; just like the clinton kid. Keep the privileged brats at home like the rest of us have to.

FUBO, FAD, down with the democrat party

Every trip made by the First Family should be justified. If it’s an official state trip such as the recent visit to Israel, then it will be all paid for.

Otherwise, the expenses should go straight to the political party organization.

If it was up to me, the First Family is permitted only one trip home (in this case Hawaii) every Christmas and Summer per year.

If the First Family really needs a place to realize, well, isn’t that why Camp David was built in the first place?

But one would think secret service duties do not include babysitting. There is no mention of either parent being on either of these trips, and the kids are too young to b vacationing on their own

"And the next president can issue an EO to rescind his EO."

Unfortunately, it looks like it is a new law that he signed and it will take another piece of legislation to un do it.
