    WTF. Obama's daughters are senior staff?? Does this mean they get paid, too? We're supposed to pay for official business, but looks like we're paying for their family vacation and they take relatives along for the ride.

    Judicial Watch had to sue for the information. What else would you expect from the man who falsely claimed his administration would be transparent?

    The Obama spin machine is no doubt working double time to counter this.

    A... October 4, 2011... old news

    B... Listing the girls as 'senior staff' was most likely a security thing, so I have no problem with that.

    Now, having said that, the overall cost of the trip does seem a little over the top.

    Its expensive to fly AF1 no matter who's on it and security doesn't come cheaply either.

    I have no problem with the Prez and family taking a VK.
