Like Mother Like Daughter… Malia Obama’s Spring Break Vacation to Mexico Cost U.S. Taxpayers $115,500.

JudicialWatch.org reports the following:

Cost to Taxpayers: $115,500.87

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released records detailing the government funds expended on First Daughter Malia Obama’s March 2012 Spring Break vacation to Mexico. According to the records, obtained from the U.S. Secret Service as a result of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on September 20, 2012, the total cost of the trip amounted to $115,500.87 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Secret Service (No. 12-cv-01562)).

The following is a breakdown of the costs as detailed in the documents:

Ground transportation: $23,964.81
Lodging: $21,682.92
Airfare: $47,767.34
“Vouchers”: $21,636.14 (not itemized)
Support Charges: $449.66 (travel for one from Mexico City to Oaxaca, not itemized)

Malia Obama’s spring break trip evoked controversy after the Obama White House reportedly ordered the removal of press reports detailing the trip. On March 19,2012, numerous online press outlets reported that the president’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, was on a Spring Break trip to Mexico accompanied by 25 U.S. Secret Service Agents and as many as 12 of her friends. However, shortly after the press reports surfaced they were quickly removed from the Internet. The trip took place shortly after the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a statement advising students on Spring Break “to avoid Mexico.”

As reported by Politico:

The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama’s school trip. On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was on a school trip along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The story was picked up by Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times, as well as UK publications like the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and other overseas publications like The Australian. But on Monday night, the story had been removed from those sites.

In an update to this story, Politico published a statement issued by Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, indicating that the removal of these news stories was “a White House effort:” …

“In these economic times, with huge public debt and high unemployment, spending $115,000 in taxpayer funds on a Spring Break trip to Mexico is inappropriate. Is this what Americans are being asked to pay higher taxes for?” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch has been active in documenting the cost to taxpayers for the Obamas’ personal trips. For example, Judicial previously obtained records from the United States Air Force and the United States Secret Service detailing Michelle Obama’s February 2012 President’s Day weekend ski vacation to Aspen, Colorado, with her two daughters. The records indicate U.S. Secret Service costs, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus deluxe condominium and the Inn at Aspen, were $48,950.38.

Judicial Watch also obtained documents from the United States Air Force and the United States Secret Service detailing costs associated with Michelle Obama’s controversial August 2010 vacation to Spain. According to a Judicial Watch analysis, the records indicate a total combined cost of at least $467,585.

Judicial Watch also obtained documents detailing costs a June 21-27, 2011, trip taken by Michelle Obama, her family and her staff to South Africa and Botswana. Judicial Watch received mission expense records and passenger manifests for the Africa trip that described costs of $424,142 for the flight and crew alone. Other expenses, such as off-flight food, transportation, security, etc. were not included.

  • Campfollower

    While they live the good life, my children’s daddy was in Afghanistan for his second deployment since Jan. 2010. Upon his return, we took our first family trip ever to the beach. Just Florida, about six hours away. For two days. All we could afford.

    I don’t begrudge them something, but this is taking it way too far in times of economic hardship by so many. I mean, if Michelle really, truly cared about the troops as she so often lies about, why not help provide them with something decent in lieu of one of her many little forays into vacationland with her posse. There is so much they could’ve done to set a good example, to inspire young and/or underpriv. kids (black kids!) but no…it’s all about them.

    Campfollower,

    It is sad that the military have to give so much, and sometimes their life when the president’s children are ravished with wealth. I am sorry this is the case. I wish the military people received as much in earnings if not more than the famous athletes do. Our government is unfortunately in control of most everything and in my opinion it is not going to get any better. Thank your husband for serving our country please, and thank you for standing by him.

    So the Democrats can say the most vile things about the Bush twins and Sarah Palins’ kids for YEARS on end but I can’t mock THEIR children? Trust me this ugly creature is getting off easy because what I really want to say would probably get me banned from this site. Not grown up enough for you? Too bad.

    Good grief, what a fugly looking girl. She’s going (is) to grow up with the same whapped concept of money as those two idiot daughters of that Formula 1 guy (the two 20ish out of work naer-do-wells who just bought 100 million dollar mansions “just cuz they could”).

    These Obama’s really are a gutter trash blight on America. Barry is living like the classic banana republic dictator who supposedly rejects the evil capitalist way of life. Everyone knows Castro and his dimbulb brother live like absolute kings while their people live in squalor. So did Idi Amin, Ferdinand Marcos, Baby Doc Chavalier.

    What a repulsive disgusting family.

  • JoAnne

    Why was she given 25 Secret Service Agents and Christopher Stevens was given ZERO security?

  • opennate

    Wow, slow down the insults. It is a bad photo for one. The issue here is the extravagant trip on the taxpayer’s dime. The fact the trip costs this much is appalling, the fact it was charged to the US is abusive, but after this do not lecture about “fair share”. The emperor has no clothes, he is an elitist that believes normal rules don’t apply to him.

  • Daisy

    While I agree that this trip was a total waste of taxpayer dollars, and all the other things wrong with it, I do not think that we should be criticizing the appearance of a 13 year old girl. Many girls are awkward at this age.

    We should not stoop to the level of those who criticized the Palin girls or other children of conservatives.

  • squeaky

    beauty is only skin deep. back in 2009, i remember a black woman [whose daughters attended the obama girls school] talking about the voucher program that allowed her children to attend that private school being discontinued and the prospect of their having to go back to the public school system. i don’t know whatever happened to those girls……

    She is actually not ugly in any way, but she definitely does not look like Barry. Mommy yes, but not daddy. What struck me was all the evil little white girls she attends school with. Guess it is not a public school, huh?

  • squeaky

    “….the evil little white girls she attends school with. Guess it is not a public school, huh?” which had me wondering about the 2 black girls who were faced with re-entering the public school system after o and the gang came out against the school voucher program that allowed them to attend.

    Dear Campflower, Thank you for your families service to our country.

    To those making negative comments about ‘looks’ please stop. Yes, I know all Republican’s kids have been excoriated by the left, but Conservatives are better than that. Those leaving ugly comments probably are trolls.

    The children of the president deserve protection, but as with so many things associated with the current POS in the WH this trip was unnecessary and excessive. The mooching will continue because the Obama’s believe it’s owed to them; reparations from the rich white slave owners, etc. The fact that they both grew up priviledged get’s tamped-down by the media. Both Barry and Mooch try to spin a different yarn. Liars and Grifters, both of them.

  • djm159

    Well, it is important that the 13-year-old daughter of the entitlement queen have a Mexican vacation with taxpayer funded babysitters. What a delightful use of taxpayer money. This proves that the apple does not fall far from the tree. The rest of the proletariat relax, you cannot afford to send your children on a taxpayer funded vacation. Many of you are too busy looking for work but as long as the Obama’s have a 14 million dollar, 20-day vacation in Hawaii and their children spend taxpayer money accordingly, is anything else important? Next time I hear that Michelle shops at Target I’ll vomit. Your tax dollars at work. Some people will fall for anything.

  • Perplexed

    You have the wrong attitude about this matter. We are so fortunate that we are allowed the privilege of paying for King obama’s daughter’s vacation. After all, we owe it to her because she is a member of a special privilege group. Please, take more expensive vacations so we can experience the thrill of being fleeced.

  • wishiwererichtoo

    the issue is simple, and the remedy is too…Camp David vacations? no problem – security is good and it’s traditional – trips to their home in Chicago? samo-samo – no charge….other than that – POTUS reimburses the Taxpayers for costs incurred (security, airfair commercial equivalent, lodging etc)- so maybe the girls’ trust funds take a little hit (compared to the accrued value of those funds – anybody actually read the tax returns? I did) – wanna play class warfare, gotta pay the price…y’all are in the 2% (by your own definition 250K) and most people with a pulse and half a brain know it. Pay up and it all goes away.

  • walls1

    the parents are to blame for abusing taxpayer dollars. as it turns out, the obama’s are just another black family living in government housing.

  • David

    Those of you commenting about the looks or attractiveness of this girl need to zip it. THAT is definitely inappropriate. She looks healthy, the girl is beautiful as are all our American children. Do not be this way!

    Secondly, the trip certainly was inappropriate considering the current events. A show of discipline bordering on being thrifty is what is needed from the first family. But this particular first family is in love with their own climb into the modern American bourgeois and I don’t think they can bear the irony of getting here only to have the entire show a mess. Thus, not all corners that should be cut are cut. It’s likely they’ll live like royalty for the rest of their days though so like I said, some discipline would be nice but they’re only humans.

    Try to remember though, in this economy there are people scraping in huge profits. The only redistribution of wealth going on is from the bottom to the very tip top thanks to the systems we take for granted in this society. Nobody knows what anything really is anymore. But these super elite barely even have the capability to understand the luxury of something as simple as traveling to Mexico for a bit of a vacation. For many of us this would be a wonderful, exotic, and huge monetary sacrifice. For some it doesn’t cause a second thought. The wealthy are increasingly disconnected from middle and especially low class Americans. It wouldnt’ surprise me if they go build a walled off libertarian city soon for “the (hate to use this overused phrase) one percent.”

    And we’re just about to pick up their $4,000,000 tab for their 3 week Christmas vaca in Hawaii. Something so wrong with this picture when they’re so many famies here without homes suffering. What’s so wrong with just staying home and chilling. This amount probably doesn’t even include Michelle’s new wardrobe that she has to have for each trip!

  • BarrysHypocrisy

    Great…….My family had to stay home for spring break because the price of gas was so high, BUT $115,000 of the taxpayers money gets spent on the “royal children”.

    I guess this is the mythical “hope and change” that we’ve all heard so much about………….

  • Mari

    The Obamas are multi-millionaires and can well afford to pay the costs of vacations for their family – IF they really had any respect for the overwhelmed taxpayer and only if the Obamas had any integrity/honesty/ decent conscience. Executives of large companies don’t have their company pay for their vacations, so why should we have to pay for the Obama vacations? The upcoming 20 day, $4 million playcation to Hawaii at this time in our fragile economic situation proves that there is no honesty/integrity being shown by the obamas. When will the obamas be asked to pay their “fair share”? When will we insist that their expenses be “means tested” as our Medicare and Social Security programs will be? And then there’s the report that wining, dining, supporting, entertaining the first family in 2011 cost taxpayers $1.4 billion. What do we have to show for it and what are the details – where did all of that money go? Clean up your own backyard, Mr. President, before asking us to sacrifice.

  • Paul

    My wife and I have worked full time jobs since we were teens, often a second over as well the last 36 years and we hope someday to be able to take our first vacation … which seems unlikely as long and the dictator is in charge and we’re asked to work more hours to pay more taxes with money that has less value everyday so his princesses can live like the royalty they obviously believe they are.

  • Dennis K

    David, is right, leave the kids alone. I truly feel for the kids, when you are raised by lying leeching mooch divisive hateful parents that said ” I was never proud of this country” and my grandma was ” a typical white person”. The sooner they can get out of there the better.,. maybe spring break they can see what decent human being act and talk like. Can you imagine having these two as your parents? Rather live in a one bedroom apartment with morality than any mansion with liars and hate mongering divisive people, bigoted people like BHO and Moochelle.

    Haha once again republicans love to exploit the fact that most conservatives don’t know how to do math. Hmmm, how can we take an obscure and irrelevant figure and spin it to trick conservatives into thinking it’s a big deal? $115,000 = $.00046 per US tax payer. In other words, thousandths of a penny. And of course it’s conveniently omitted that these travel expenses are entirely consistent with, if not even less than all of the past first families that have ever lived at the White House. No wonder conservatives hate education reform, it’s in their best interest to keep people stupid so they’ll keep swallowing this garbage gossip masquerading itself as important news…

    The issue is not the Obama girls. They are just kids, for crying out loud. The problem is their parents, who are hell bent on ripping off the American people, subverting the US Constitution, promoting the take over of our institutions, destroying the very fabric of this country. All the while, the Obamas self indulge themselves in living the high life on the taxpayer’s dime.

    The comments on this site are ridiculous. First of all, many families that can afford vacations have taken their kids to Mexico or Disney or wherever. I include myself in that. However, I don’t have to worry about some idiot kidnapping or killing my kids. The comments on this site prove why a vacation by the first family would cost so much. Idiots like you might be a threat. And why would you choose to call a teenager ugly? Aren’t the teenage years a time of growth and physical/emotional change? It stands to reason that the kid might be awkward at this age. Were you all so perfect that you can bash a kid? And all because you dislike the President. You are all losers!

    To be “fair”, the Feds should pay for every American’s vacation. Many of us haven’t had a vacation in years, but I’m okay with only getting a voucher equal to the Obama’s next Hawaiian vacation.

    I sincerely doubt it was that cheap. That crew can’t take a crap without it costing taxpayers more than that. The Obamas have WH parties for their friends that cost $1M. Oh and 52 Christmas trees in the WH? Why would that be an issue? Don’t worry, it’s taxpayers money that they have a ‘right’ to. And there’s an infinite river in Washington that supplies all the funding.

    You peasants should be pleased to pay for this little jaunt for your royal family. Just work some overtime and the taxes will cover the Mooch’s vacation just fine. Eat your peas peasants, the Mooch family is coming home to roost.

    to JoAnne: “Why was she given 25 Secret Service Agents and Christopher Stevens was given ZERO security?” now THAT is a good point too. and she didn’t even ask for it on different occasions. but i digress, the fact this sum of money being spent on a SINGLE child’s vacation during this horrible economic crisis is unforgiveable and this administration KNOWS it. why else would they scramble to quickly remove what judicialwatch had to dig around to find?

    The ugly in the Mooch family is more then skin deep. The ugly is deep in the marrow of that family. For the first time in my adult life the president and his family disgust me. Even Barry’s “my grandmother was a typical white woman” learned the ugly in Barry Obama. “The police acted stupidly” learned that lesson as well.

    The Mooch’s are racists, big spenders, and divisive. And you are blind little liberal Libby.

    @Jennifer Hoft Henderson – “This is complete bull-$hit! Come on people! Almost $50,000 on a flight? And all the other expenses? You can buy 5 tacos for $1 US in Mexico, don’t believe everything you read!”

    Sorry, Jennifer, but you don’t know much about how the “royal family” here travels, do you?!
    “Princess” Malia and her “friends” cannot be allowed to travel on a mere “commercail airline”‘ — they must be ferried to “HRH’s” school break trip on a PRIVATE GOVERNMENT jet accompanied by 25 Secret Service agents to keep the precious little darling “safe” while she and HER “POSSE” flit off to an UNSAFE COUNTRY (for “regular” Americans – let alone the daughter of “prez’dint” obama and his “empress michele”!)

    Oh, and you can be CERTAIN that the “princess” and her friends DID NOT dine on 20 cent street tacos any more than they would have stayed in the Mexican version of Motel 6!!

    No, this is just another fine example of how the obamas make certain that “the girls” are never “disappointed” with their “vacations”!!!!

    Although I do not agree with what appears to be lavish spending while many in America cannot, the comments towards the President’s daughter are both uncalled for and callous. It is fine to criticize the President, but leave the comments about his children to yourself.

    obama voters are the lowest forms of life. While they lounge at home on welfare, the KING prepares for his 20 million dollar vacation. Those still working in spite of obamanomics have to pay for the largesse of both of these spoiled classes.

    This is ridiculous for people to fault the Obama’s for these expenses, ANY U.S. President in office will require a great deal of security detail. NO matter who was in office these costs would be relatively the same. There is a lot to squawk over, but this is not one of them.

    This is one of those stories that really means nothing. Any time a presidents Child takes a trip or goes somewhere it is going to cost a ton more than anyone else just because of who they are. It could be the Bush twins ( who traveled plenty) etc. This is just a rt wing nonsense story.. just like all the bogus stories about the cost of Obamas trips overseas.. as if other Presidents jumped on spirit airlines and stayed at a red roof inn. Just ridiculous. Grow up.

  • Exile1981

    @ #10 above – Actually having chartered a jet once, 50k is about right for a charter that far for 38 people. I still think they shouldn’t have taken a spring break but the cost of the airfare was reasonable for what they did, though unreasonable that we should pay for it.

    Now as a parent I think sending a child that young out of country on a spring break was reckless and irresponsible. On the other hand they had 2 secret service agents for each kid so how much trouble could they get into.

    I think it bears mentioning that the 115K doesn’t include the wages of those 25 secret service agents. I think 23k in ground transport seems high.

  • Raul

    This is just typical of their kind! I have been struggling for so long and my tax liability just keeps going up and up to the point that I cant even take a day trip on the weekend! I so resent this reckless regard for the taxpayers hard earned money,I’m so sick of struggling,which only started when king zero stole the wh(which is going to get much worse after Jan.) but I wont go on the govt dole,for any rhyme or reason! I grew up learning that you fend for yourself no matter how difficult it gets! This behavior by the usurper is what the TEA party is talking about! If the economy is so bad for the majority of working Americans how can it be so good for the politicians,king zero turned the greenlight on for major theft of the middle class Americans prosperity,it does’nt have to be this way,it’s all engineered for the communist transformation!

  • BillyBob

    Any negative comments about the Obama’s will just be considered more evidence of “racism”. When the left criticizes white Pres. children, it is just “factual”. Tolerance stops at the frontgate, on and of the “right”. But, while the children are at that awkward age of…..well….awkwardness, it’s not “right” to ridicule the kids, especially about something they can’t help. The money? Indefensible. Where’s the “fairness”? Another term being redefined by the left.

  • Raul

    @ # 103 No buy you’re crap! If maybe the parents were’nt always stealing from the taxpayer it would’nt be an issue!

  • Hugh

    The ugly comments on here regarding the children’s looks are disgusting and make me wonder if lovely “progressive” trolls make it a point to show up when they see posts with the kids or mama Moochelle. The fact of the matter is that this trip was an outrageous use of our resources and a slap in the face to taxpayers. Not appropriate in ANY imaginable way. A gross abuse of power . . . and, in my mind, theft.

    I am no fan of the president. I would have even chosen Hilary over him.

    But every presidential family has the right to a vacation, or even dozens of vacations, and they have the right to do so, at our expense. It comes with the office. I’m not worried about the expense.

    I’m also unconcerned that Barry plays golf, even though W quit the game our of respect for our troops; if a trip to the links prevents him from committing additional atrocities upon the citizenry, I’m all for it.

    We have much bigger problems to reckon with.

    One dollar less

    Today, the conservative media reported on an interesting story. The Department of Defense spent over $100,000 for a seminar. The topic of the seminar? Did Jesus also die for the Klingons?

    As nutty as that sounds, there is a serious question that seminar raises and it has nothing to do with Klingons.

    What is it?

    The government is riddled with fraud; waste and spending that can only be described as mind blowingly stupid!

    Every year we hear budget cuts discussed. But here is the dirty truth that even Republicans do not want to acknowledge. Spending cuts are never cuts. They are simply reductions in the amount the budget is increased.

    When we hear about a five percent spending cut by the government, what it really means in the increase in spending is being cut. Actual spending is not cut. It goes up every year.

    I don’t agree with the spending, but are you really going to criticize the appearance of a 13 year old girl? Come on, try to be less juvenile in your comments. To blame her for the spending is ludicrous. She obviously didn’t hold a gun to her dad’s head and make him do this. When I was little I asked my parent for all kinds of expensive junk, but they made smart fiscal decisions with each request. How insecure do you have to be to insult a child?

  • I hate Obama!

    Why doesn’t the entire tribe STAY in Mexico?

    Are Obama’s kids off target? NO WAY. Look at how the Bush kids, Mitt’s kids, and Palin’s kids were targeted? BY taking the “higher road” just EMBOLDENS liberals. Liberals are NASTY little children that are only HAPPY when they destroy something or someone. Obama’s daughter looks like another unhappy LIBERAL kids that is spoiled silly. Plus she is very UNATTRACTIVE. NO apology for stating the truth.

  • Start to bill them for this personal crap.

  • Bob Higginbotham

    I think the $115k is probably low and does not cover everything. Consider last year Obama and family cost over $1.4 billion on vacations, non-official parties, world shopping sprees, etc. This year’s Christmas vacation in Hawaii is estimated at $4 million. They have even been overly extravagant with official functions. The previous adminstration spent less than half what this one does on receptions and official dinners.

    War on terrorism spurs House to grant presidents Secret Service protection for life

    [……………….]

    “Protecting former presidents is phenomenally expensive and largely a courtesy rather than a necessity,” said Mr. Emmett, who was in the Secret Service from 1983 through 2004. “Although an attack on a former president could happen any day, it is highly unlikely.”

    [………………]

    In addition to the sitting president and vice president and their immediate families, the Secret Service protects former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Mr. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, and all of the families, as well as Nancy Reagan. Widows of former presidents are entitled to protection, too.

    Regardless of your opinions about the costs associated with this trip, I am disappointed by all the comments about this child’s appearance.

    This is an awkward age for all girls, and I am pleased to see that Malia is not feeling pressured to glam herself up every moment of the day, for the benefit of the strangers stalking her.

    Of course there are countless perks to having a father in the White House, but these girls have many factors impacting their ability to have as “normal” a childhood as one would need to grow gracefully into adulthood.

    Please save your barbs for the President and First Lady, who entered into the public spotlight with informed consent… and don’t lower yourself to taking your feelings out on their children.

  • jc

  • kyle

    How exactly does the first daughter contribute to the nation and why is she allowed to participate in such elaborate trips with no concern about where funds were disbursed from? Perhaps we could have spent that money on educating Presdient Obama, and his entire family about “business and ethics?” Obviously the Presidential family has no ethics, nor have they been properly educated. The Iron Law of Responsiblity states “in the long run, those who do not use power in ways that society considers responsible will tend to lose it.” As a stakeholder of this nation, I believe these individuals should be revoked of any further privledges until they understand their consequences.

    My comment on this article may piss some of

That said…I think it is horrible that people can attack a 14 year old child. Folks, she done nothing but have Obama as her father. The article was not fair, the comments from {grown people} were just sick. I hated when everyone made fun of Chelsea Clinton as a pre-teen calling her ugly and other names. Malia Obama does not make laws, governed or create social programs. She is a young girl who happens to live in the White House. So that is my take on this crap article.

    What’s wrong with it. If you are the president of US, you do the same maybe more. Why didn’t you tell me how many billions of dollars are wasting to foreign countries that they consider US is their enemy?

    Just Wait. When Obama’s kids get as old as the Bush Twins, Obama’s girls will make the Bush girls look like angles

    Most of the negative comments are a full of *hit, most of us would have done the same thing given the circumstances. As a father i would have sent a seal team and 007 to protect my children. Its a reason most of us are only trusted to lead our households and most of the men do not even do that. Go and ask you wife can you reply, if you have one.

    When I was that age,I NEVER went on a Spring w/friends or by myself. Also, I couldn’t afford to take a SPRNG BREAK even as a College student. Besides being in debt,I did pay off every single penny that was borrowed.People shouldn’t comment about another’s appearance,becaue exspecially young people.They will take you seriously and end up committing suicide.Do YOU what this to happen to another Human Being ? ?

    Well as you can read, This is being blown way out but on good points. While the trip and expenditures were costly since ANY Presidents child’s trip would be!!! The Masses are correct in a show of more conservative and less taxpayer cost for the Secret Service detail would have been good. However , she IS The presidents daughter PERIOD. be it bushs-clintons-reagans, doesn’t matter. If the entire country felt the way you bash the President-Romney and his wife would be thinking of how they can change and REVAMP the white house -change the china etc. I agree with the complaint of costs during this time period of the economy. I do NOT agree with the bashing and defamation of character against a child simply because you don’t like the black man president you ELECTED twice! if you wish to bash -then Along with THIS story, send more on all the rest of the abuse of taxpayer money NOT JUST HIS. Fight to stop waste in all areas.
    This is an Opinion and protected under American Law. any and all parties who are cussing and hating over my defense and/or agreement need to remember OUR rights apply to
    ALL LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS…Black or white or redman or Latino etc. President-to garbage truck thrower…
    Thank you and have a Great Day!

    There is so much they could’ve done to set a good example, to inspire young and/or underpriv. kids (black kids!)

    Why the point that it could have been BLACK KIDS? It could have set an example for and/or inspired WHITE KIDS too you typical racist!

  • anna

    LOL— she has no black friends. Even though her father is the first “black” president.

  • jose

    50% OF THE COUNTRY THINK ITS GREAT THAT OWEBUMA’S DAUGHTER SPENDS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TAX PAYER DOLLARS ON A VACATION BECAUSE 50% OF THEM ARE LAZY SCAMMING DEMOC RATS ALSO ON THE GUBMENT DOLE AND SINCE THEY ARE NOT PAYING A DIME THEN THEY COULD CARE LESS, BUT WHEN THE TAX PAYER MONEY FINALLY RUNS OUT, IT WILL BE A DIFFERENT STORY.

  • When we were kids and the school wanted to go on a field trip, we had to sell candy bars door-to-door till we raised enough to go. I think they should do the same…let the kid sell candy bars and greeting cards till every penny is paid back!

  • Harvey D

    If you ask why, you get the proverbial, “because we can!”
    Power corrupts absolutely. Law of the jungle.
    Obama is bi-racial. Not the first “black” president. Michelle has the mandibles of Marlon Brando in the Godfather. No one is perfect.
    Regardless of the obvious, everyone is so smitten with the first family its ridiculous. Romney is no angel either.

  • FU

    Ahhhh-The nyggers are training their little niggets quite welll these days……

  • bunky

    Does she not have any black friends? What’s up with all the white girl’s????

  • Charles Schisler

    The $115 K is ridiculously low, people! Besides the hard costs itemized, where is the mention of the earnings of the 25-man Secret Service team, with doubtless piles of overtime pay, including setup and breakdown personnel, government concierge efforts, planning and execution costs, etc? Know and believe that if we are informed of 0.15 million dollars of government waste and flagrancy, the ACTUAL total for just that occurrence is from 10 to 100 times more than stated- BE REAL, you ninnies!

  • jazzdrummer

    I notice there are no black kids in the pics other than the skinny beast child of the Obozos.

  • squeakasaurus

    Why on Earth do we provide the First Family with access to Camp David if we also have to pay for them to vacation all over the globe? And for the record, NO 13 yr old child needs to travel to Mexico. Spoiled.

  • I can’t believe how many people poke fun of a young girls looks. She is already beautiful in the eyes of God, and he is the only being that counts, and the only one she needs to please. Any negative comments here belong to the parents and their flaunting how frivoulous they are in blowing away hard earned taxpayer money. Sock to them and their arrogance all you like, but please leave the children off the hit list. Have a blessed day…

  • oseJ

    That’s the most white people I’ve seen in a picture taken in Mexico.

  • Mark Fletcher

    Wow. You people are absolutely horrible. So completely ignorant. Talking about this little girls looks – and you’re grown ups. I KNOW you are ugly. I can tell. Ugliness just dripping off of your fat arses. I can tell exactly what kind of people most of you are. It shows in ways you don’t even recognize. The White people lost the Country not because it was taken from them, but because they mismanaged it. Plain and simple. You know it, but can’t bear to admit it. You people forgot to educate your children. Forgot to hear God’s words. Forgot to take care of yourselves. Forgot to go to the dentist. You deserve what is coming. Face it. Head on.
