Michelle's "Private" Trip......

If it is so "Private", then why am I paying???

"The first lady is on a private trip," Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said this week. "She is a private citizen and is the mother of a daughter on a private trip. And I think I'd leave it at that."according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama and her younger daughter lunched with Spain's King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia today at the royal summer residence on the Balearic island of Majorca.

Mrs Obama, nine-year-old Sasha and their entourage flew into the Majorcan capital of Palma from the glitzy Mediterranean resort of Marbella, where they have been staying since Wednesday at a deluxe hotel.

The lunch is Mrs Obama's last engagement in Spain before flying home to Washington DC, where she has come under fire for her lavish break on the Costa del Sol with 40 friends, which has been estimated at costing U.S. taxpayers £50,000($75,000) a day.
