"When I was young and irresponsible, I was young and irresponsible"

Despite a request from the U.S. Embassy, the Bush twins party on in Buenos Aires.

Like father, like daughters: The Bush twins are having such a good time partying in Buenos Aires that they're rejecting requests from U.S. Embassy officials to cut their trip short, ABC News reports. Embassy officials believe that publicity surrounding the twins' visit has created a security risk, and they may also be peeved that all the attention paid to the twins -- they celebrated their 25th birthdays over the weekend -- may be upstaging "publicity plans" by the new U.S. ambassador to Argentina.

While it's apparently true that Barbara Bush's purse and cellphone were stolen out from under the watchful eyes of her Secret Service detail last week, hotel employees tell ABC that the twins were not seen -- as one Argentine tabloid reported -- running naked through the hallways of their hotel.
