Michelle Obama announces trip to Mexico

Michelle Obama will travel to Mexico City in April in her first solo official trip as first lady, the White House announced.

Obama will build on a late February meeting with Mexican First Lady Margarita Zavala de Calderon "on the issues of education and economic advancement in both countries," the White House said. Obama will travel from April 13-15.

Last summer, the first lady spent some time in Paris without her husband in an unofficial capacity, touring with first daughters Malia and Sasha.

Good stuff. Michelle has the right stuff to resolve issues that made it difficult for success on both sides of the border. Have a safe trip Michelle!

If the first ladies of Mexico and the USA got together and smoked some weed together, maybe they could come up with a solution for all the drug violence.

The threat of violence is greatly exaggerated in Mexico, unless you are stupid enough to hangout in a few cities on the border, like TJ and Juarez. You are perfectly safe in 95% of Mexico.

Talking. Yes, that's what our leaders do nowadays.

Mexico is our close neighbor. Good to see that she is going to talk about education and economic advancement.

With all of the drug cartel violence in Mexico ... I hope that Michelle Obama would rethink her plans, because there is surely somewhere else that she can visit.
