It’s spring break for the Obama daughters and mom has taken them West for the week. Michelle Obama and her daughters visited Mount Rushmore Wednesday to see the monument where four U.S. presidents are immortalized in stone on the soaring mountainside.

Now the Obamas have arrived in Las Vegas for a private family visit.

At the depths of the recession, President Obama seemed to disparage Las Vegas visits, at one point warning hard-pressed Americans, “You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.”

There is lingering dismay in the Las Vegas travel and tourism industry but, during the political campaign, Obama has been a frequent visitor on official and political trips to the swing state of Nevada.

The first lady’s private schedule with Sasha and Malia in Las Vegas is short. They travel on to California for publicly announced events, including a San Francisco political fundraiser Friday, the Saturday commissioning of a new Coast Guard ship in Alameda, and then a chance to meet music sensation Taylor Swift.

Michelle Obama is to present Swift with an award at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

They're behaving like the family of middle-eastern dictator, or one of those banana-republic kleptocracies. What's next, is Mrs. Obama going to go buy 1000 pairs of shoes?

Yup, time for another vacation. Gotta get out of that eevil, racist White House.

Oooo I bet it grinds them to no end to hear that place referred to as the "White House".

Any takers?

Well, in all fairness, Malia and Sasha aren't going to have to worry about paying for college, what with the various no-show jobs that their mom has held in Chicago, and their dad's book royalties, the Obama's are well into the 1% that they usually mock and deride, except when they are trawling for campaign cash. :rolleyes:
