Mrs. Obama’s Trip to Africa

Posted by madjillmom on July 6, 2011

Last year they went to a swanky resort in Spain.  She got a lot of flack for a high ticket trip abroad at such a time of economic problems and anemic recovery at home.  Some of her girlfriends came along.  I think they made a point to show that the taxpayer didn’t pay for her girlfriends to come along.  Maybe.  This year she took the kids to Africa, but she also took her brother’s children and her mother.  Who paid for them?  I know first lady’s have trips and take their children on such trips, but I don’t remember there being others invited.  I can’t remember Chelsea having trips with anyone but Hillary.  I can’t remember the Bush girls with anyone other than Laura.  Either way, at a time such as this one the precipice of defaulting, should these trips be done?  And should they be extended to friends and family?
