Spring Break - true or false

This showed up in my inbox today. Is this true? Snopes.com says it is, but that it was a school trip in March.

Did Obama pay all the costs personally? Okay, you can laugh now.

"After driving the U.S. more deeply into debt than any other President, want to know where Obama’s 13-year-old daughter is right now with 12 friends?

"On 'spring break' in Oaxaca, Mexico, on your dime. She took two jets and 25 secret service men.

"A thirteen year-old?

"Why haven’t you heard about it? The Obama Administration has had the Secret Service scouring the web ordering that any website mentioning this be taken down because letting the travel plans out could endanger the president’s daughter’s security.

"Nonsense, the 'royal couple' just want to hide the way they are ripping off the U. S. taxpayer.

"Only a few Canadian web-sites still have it up, one was taken down while I was viewing it. This trip will cost more than most Americans make in their entire lifetimes."

Read about it on snopes.com, if you care to.

You are WAYYYYY off here...

Not enough time or energy to debate this ... bottom line, you're wrong.

By the way, where were you while Bush, acting like an idiot with a new credit card, drove the country into war and debt, vacationed every other week, and tried to keep the press quiet about his lovely daughters and their partying (secret service with them on the taxpayer dime)?
I'm tired of Obama coming under attack by people that don't have their facts straight.

If you want a real hoot and to hear Reagan and Obama rap a message togther, go to youtube. Here is the link.

What I found interesting is that while she was on spring break in Oaxaca a 6.7 earthquake hit and hardly a word was mentioned regarding Mr. Obamas daughters status. Go figure.....

What's wrong with some "perks" if you are Prez? That's one of the reasons being a "big cheese" is cool... to get to do freebie things the rest of us gruts can't.
I won't beseige Obama for letting his daughter vaca... so what.
I wonder what she likes better: Dos Equis, Modelo, or Corona! Doh.

Talk about Kool-Aid tasting ... wow
I can pull up just as many you tubes to dispute what you say.
Whatever ... I suppose you believe the "American Dream" too. I figured. You have to be asleep to believe it.
