Heh .. "scrubbed from the internet... heres a link" :D

Sorry but couldent help but note the irony.

Anyhow why in the hell is he sending his kids to a country listed as 'unsafe' by the state department?

why not support a local economy and spend Spring Break in the US somewhere?

Considering Obama's approval ratings in the US Mexico is probably less of a security threat.:)

Relax supercomputer-it's a joke.

One would ask if he would do that if he wasn't Prez ?
If he was just a lawyer could he afford the equivalent of a secret service detail ?
Lord knows he doesnt have enough common sense to see how bad this could turn out.

I don't see any issue with the kids going on a spring break vacation.

You have to know the 'drug lords' would love to get their hands on her.

That and the area was designated as 'unsafe' but I guess if you have over 2 dozen security forces following you around its not as quite 'unsafe'.

As a foreigner (an probably more neutral towards american internal politics) I'd say that sending your kids on a spring break vacation outside the country, when the US economy needs every dolar, is kinda unpatriotic.

I could understand that if they went to visit Teotihuacan or something, but a beach in Mexico is far from being so special...

The daughters are off limit for discussion except when Obama wants to use them to make political points. No doubt the newspapers reporting the trip got calls from the WH reminding them of this historic treatment.

it's about how the story was supressed by the media...unless the white house had info that there was a threat somewhere/somehow.


..if that's the case,they could include the warning to other travelers.
