Obama's Daughter Spends "Springbreak" in Mexico! What is U.S. Taxpayer Cost?
The elder daughter, Malia, of US President Barack Obama is spending her springbreak in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends, a state police official said. (I wonder if Ms. Fluke got to go with her free birth control?)
The young tourists, including 13-year-old Malia Ann Obama, are staying at a downtown hotel in this city famous for its colonial architecture and well-preserved native American traditions, the 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 25 US 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 have one thousand years.
The annoucement appeared in this Yahoo link
http://news.yahoo.com/obamas-daughter-spends-springbreak-mexi... , however when accessing the link, one is presented with a tad of media manipulation, but if you note in the "Comments", I'm not the only one who has spotted this "slight of hand"!
Oh, by the way, didn't the State Department tell all above the "border", that it was unwise to go "South". http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_970.html ?
Maybe she was just going down to check on Obama's alligators in the Rio Grande?
Whatever, guess who will pay for this junket and how much?
Edit update: Note the story in "THEBLAZE" about "Why is the story about Malia Obama vacationing in Mexico disappearing from the web?" http://www.theblaze.com/stories/why-is-the-story-about-malia-...

A 7.6 Magnitude Earthquake Hit Oaxaca, Mexico where this visit takes place!
A YouTube video link contribution from "No Nonsense" that presents a pretty good narration of the whole taxpayer abuse!
