Speaking at a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, President Obama said part of his job there was to “scout out” vacation spots for Michelle.
“We’re having a wonderful time,” the president said, “and usually when I take these summit trips part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation, so we’ll make sure to come back some time in the near future.”
President Obama’s declaration comes hot on the heels of his testy exchange with Larry Connors of KMOV, who asked the president about those who “get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations…sometimes maybe they think under the ‘color’ of state business…”
President Obama’s Colombia trip was filled with news, from the dismissal of 11 Secret Service agents for their alleged involvement with a prostitute, to the revelation that members of the U.S. Military may be involved in the same scandal.
Officially, the president was there to “discuss the enormous progress in the region” and determine how best to move forward.
