This has GOT TO BE the crown jewel in the Imperial Presidency of Barak and Michelle! Do we need a better reason that this one to make this a one term affair?
II Media scrubs Malia Obama vacation story
By DYLAN BYERS | 3/20/12
The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama’s school trip.
On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was on a school trip along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The story was picked up by Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times, as well as UK publications like the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and other overseas publications like The Australian.
But on Monday night, the story had been removed from those sites .The AFP page for the story now links to a story titled “Senegal music star Youssou Ndour hits campaign trail,” as does the Yahoo page. The Huffington Post page now links directly back to the Huffington Post homepage. The Daily Mail, Telegraph, and Australian stories now lead to 404 error pages, reading “page not found.” The International Business Times story also links to the IBT homepage, though a version of the original story still exists online.
A spokesperson at the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
UPDATE: Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House demand. “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.” (Oh, I guess this statement makes this little 2.5 million dollar kid’s caper OK)
III Maybe you remember Michelle’s taxpayer paid trip to Spain:
Michelle Obama Criticized as “Modern-day Marie Antoinette” over Spain Vacation
Andrea Tantaros has penned a scorching editorial for the New York Daily News deeming First Lady Michelle Obama a “modern-day Marie Antoinette” for her vacation in Spain with her daughter.
“The First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her ‘closest friends,'” Tantaros writes, pointing to a CNN report that Michelle Obama and her group are expected to occupy 60 to 70 rooms. “Not exactly what one would call cutting back in troubled times.”
(Is there anything else to say. Do we really want this imperial couple for another term leading us into national bankruptcy?)
