The globe-trotting Obamas are have announced their next destination. The White House says that Michelle Obama will be going to Spain for a ‘private, mother-daughter trip with longtime family friends’. The White House didn’t say where in Spain they would be going, but Spanish press has indicated they will be going to the upscale southern Spanish resort city of Benahavis near Marbella. She is reportedly taking Sasha and not Malia on the trip. And there is more.

Not ones to worry about their own carbon footprint (just ours), Mrs. Obama has reportedly booked 30 rooms for herself, Sasha, body-guards, staff and friends in a five-star hotel. I’m sure there will be a new Atlantic air-stream created from the number of tax-payer funded Air Force jets carrying the entourage across the pond in luxury and comfort.

Her vacation comes on the heels of the Obama vacation to the Gulf Coast of Florida the first weekend in August which comes on the heels of the Obama family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard which came on the heels of the Obama family vacation to Maine which came on the heels of the Obama family vacation to Chicago, which follows on the heels of the Obama family vacation to … oh dear, I’ve lost track!

Michelle Obama will make an official visit with Spain’s King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia. I suppose that is to justify the use of tax-payer dollars for the vacation and maybe so the Obama’s can take any personal expenses off their taxes? Ha!

Mrs. Obama’s time in Spain will be closed to the press in its entirety. Including the ‘official’ visit with King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia. I guess that means no photo-ops for the Spaniards.

All I can say is the Jolie-Pitts have nothing on the Obamas!
