No.2 - did you go at the expense of the US tax-payers?
Not highly paid and more like 103 - were you in need of 25 highly paid "baby-sitters" to keep an eye on you?
Yes. More, actually. Though I suppose they went on their own and I didn't take them. They wouldn't have fit in the Bobcat.4 - did you take 12 friends with you?
No.5 - did you all fly on AF1?
(Since no doubt, no members of the 1st. family are allowed to take commercial flights.)
Oops.Of course you didn't, and I am not really aiming this at you!
I don't doubt that they asked the Media to not cover their kids. I remember Clinton doing something similar. But nothing is stopping anyone from covering the trip other than courtesy.Am just on a rant here!
The problem with the WH alluding to not wanting any publicity re their daughter's trip for security or simply privacy reasons ... is nothing but pure hogwash!
They know full well that yet another "vacation" at our expense in this worsening economy would not go over too well ...
And that is precisely why the reports are being scrubbed!
I fear for our country when our own President can just say the word, and our news stories can be whisked away at his command.
As far as the trip itself, I leave it to the Obama's on how they want to raise their children and if they choose not to sequester them in the White House for four (maybe eight) of their formative years, I have no problem with that.
