Personally I think their kids are 100% off-limits, regardless of how much I detest Obama I would never attack them and anyone who does is hurting our cause, but it’s immensely hypocritical that Obama is openly using them as campaign props and then demands the media pay no attention to them.
The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama’s Spring Break vacation.
Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House effort:
From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.
Update: So true.
“Just as a parent I have to ask “Who sends their 13 year old on spring break?”
