Who cares,about the figurehead's daughter this is just more mindless drivel that for some reason people like to drone on and on about.It's pitiful but since this is an election year both sides of the so-called political spectrum will be trying to make an issue out of every little thing.

Honestly, so what? He had a bunch of secret service agents follow his daughters around. It's what they are there for. Our tax money goes to paying them anyway, so why not use them?

If I were president I would have just as many, if not more, following my kids around.... Constantly.

This is the very definition of a non issue for me. The president has secret service follow his family around when they are out in public. Yeah, him and every other president...

If you say you would not do the same you are lying. They are there to protect the president and his family. They are getting paid no matter what. It would be a waste of tax payer money NOT to use them.

Non issue.

Peace and love

Couldn't they just have a get together
like a pool party at the white house?

I mean, you got bowling, personal theater,
anything you could want you can get.

I think having a pool party at the white house
would be way cooler then going to mexico.
thats ok just screw the people out of money.

I had to edit my post because I didn't read the OP carefully.

Here is a cached article I found on google about Malia vacationing in Mexico.

No disrespect, OP, but

Big flaming whoop.

Who the hell cares?

Every president and his family get secret service protection.

Why do you single out one of Obama's daughters to flip out about?

The Republican candidates have the secret service protecting them now too, but I guerss you probably don't have a problem with that, huh?

I know it's election year, but this thread is making an issue out of absolutely nothing.

I was just thinking of Spring Break tourists in regard to the quake. Then I thought of the Obama daughter vacation thread (this one) and I just knew she'd be right there in the thick of it.

I don't begrudge the White House kids their right to a life and little things like a Spring Break. No biggy..and they do have a life to lead outside what Daddy does for the world press corps.

However...when the kids running off to play for Spring Break takes 25 Secret Service agents *I* pay to recruit, train and keep properly funded....their vacation has become my problem as a taxpayer. Looking back in stories, it would seem the Bush twins traveled with just a LITTLE LESS of a foot print than a Tier 1 Government Cabinet Official or Congressional Leader. Heck, they don't even get that much security and EXPENSE to go vacation.

Could they...oh I don't know..have chosen a destination that IS NOT in the middle of a brutal civil war and REAL REAL hateful toward everything American??? I suppose seeing the ruins of Babylon would be a real memorable trip too.....Are we going to see the First Family take the 82nd Airborne division along for a vacation so they can see that too?? As parents, it's a fail....Kids need boundaries and these kids apparently no absolutely none, whatsoever. 25 servants...and we aren't even talking the REAL serving staff that I'm sure traveled along with the massive security contingent.

I'm hoping no earthquake event causes sympathy and increase desire to relect Obama...not to mention if his daughter was to be a victim as well...

At first I questioned why the story was pulled. Then, I began thinking of all of the crazy people out there who would actually go to try and find his daughter, and realized that this is a security issue. Twenty-five Secret Service agents seems excessive- but it is thirteen preteens in Mexico. I question the parental judgment in letting them all go somewhere that has been classified as dangerous though. There are safer places they could have gone. It makes me wonder if this spring break vacation is being used as a front for something else.

It is a school trip people.

ffs

Let the kid try to pretend to have a normal life at least.

I imagine the parents of her classmates on the trip are glad the secret service is tagging along -- even if the irrational on ATS aren't

I don't know if she's there or not; BUT, if she is there then I'd have to nominate her parents for the Bad Parents of the Year award because ...

Texas, California, and other states had all put out plenty of warnings to students this year to NOT go to Mexico for Spring Break because of the dangers.

Here's only one ... you can find a whole load more of links on this well known warning.
www.reuters.com...

Even the hard-core, dyed-in-the-wool traditionalist students didn't go!

P.S. Wasn't this the same area that a major American CT radio host was abducted for his money recently?

We have corporations raping this country harder than Ted Bundy ever could.
Crushing debt, massive deficits, corrupt politicians and social inequalities.

Yet people are complaining about the Presidents kids on vacation?

This is a non issue as far as I'm concerned.
I mean really who gives a rats ass?
Ok so they went on vacation to Mexico with 25 SS agents.
If it was me I'd of sent 50.
How easy would it be for a Mexican drug gang to kidnap the presidents daughter?
Ask yourself that question.

Plus, you are all paying for all of it. ANd don't forget her twelve friends, too. Pretty sure their parents are not paying for this trip.

So, thirteen kids, twenty five SS agents. I'm in the tourism sector. This would cost about 80 to 100 grand for normal people. So, throw in Air Force One to get there, SS agents are getting PAID, not paying, a convoy of limos everywhere once they are there.....let's say a cool million. For some teenagers to go to Oaxaca for a week.

Good deal. Aren't you glad to pay for this?

Oh, it would seem Mexico is the example of the moment to highlight how outrageous this has become, so indeed.. Mexico it is.

The children of Presidents have a right to their own life....but when their life starts running with million dollar price tags for their OWN trips and their OWN interests, it's crosses lines. The Obama's personally have the cash for this trip? Yeah.. I thought not.... So the kids get the ultimate dream of a trip with all the protection and staff of a travelling Head of State, ALL at our expense.

What could anyone possibly find wrong with Spring Break in Mexico?? Unless...it's these kids. That changes everything with zeros on the end.
