Every Elitist kid spends Spring Break in a foreign country right? Well sure, but you are not paying for it. Here’s the other issue. Is it appropriate for Obama’s daughter to Vacay in a country that is on the State Departments Travel Warning list? The State Department issued a Travel warning for Mexico Early in February 2012.
We think President Obama is irresponsible to allow his daughter travel to a country that has terrorist dangers and drug cartels.
Moments ago we have a report of a 7.6 Earthquake near Mexico city in Guerrero state near were Obama’s daughter is staying in Oaxaca
Barack Obama’s eldest daughter is spending her spring break in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends – and 25 Secret Service agents.
he US President’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is staying at a downtown hotel in the city famous for its colonial architecture and well-preserved native American traditions, an official said.
“We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites,” the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.
Malia Obama and her friend are guarded by the Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.
The group, which arrived in Oaxaca Saturday, has already visited the architectural zone of Mitla and the tree of El Tule believed to be one thousand years old.
The sightseeing plan also includes visits to Monte Alban known for its archeological research sites and Oaxaca’s famous artisan quarters.
The Obamas can be fiercely protective of their daughters’ privacy, complaining if the girls are photographed while out on their own.
But they’ve been more than willing to keep bringing them up in the national conversation and to keep them in the minds of voters as the general election approaches.
Media Blacks Out Malia Obama Spring Break vacation story
