White House Acknowledges Scrubbing Malia Stories

by Keith Koffler on March 20, 2012, 1:29 pm

Updated 2:35 pm ET

The White House today offered Politico a statement on why it has pressured news organizations to withdraw their stories about Malia Obama’s vacation to Mexico.

Michelle’s Communications Director, Kristina Schake, confirmed that the White House has been scrubbing the stories.

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.

Ironically, suppressing the stories has probably only added to the attention to the trip, since the media is now avidly focusing on the White House’s actions.

UPDATE: Santorum today waded into the Malia Mexico issue, saying with Malia’s trip, President Obama is suggesting to Americans it’s safe to travel to Mexico, when it’s not.

They really blew this one. Instead of having us rant about the cost to the tax payers for all the security, etc. We can now, and rightly so, accuse them of literally suppressing the press and our freedom of speech.

My thoughts as well J2O. Additionally, it just shows how lacking they are as parents to allow their 13-year-old child to vacation without them in a country that is in the midst of a civil war.

The fact that they are, once AGAIN, spending tax payer dollars for yet another get away makes this very NEWS worthy. If the kid wants to go on some school trip, or get away that’s fine with me but leave the 25 agents, Mexican police (we’re paying em you know that), and air travel out. That or show me where the POTUS has paid ALL expenses out of his pocket. GDDM THIEVES, the whole lot of em.

Well, if we’re all supposed to be so pious and protective of “the girls”, why go to Church sans Malia on Sunday? It’s not like they’re regular churchgoers. Would they not have protected the privacy of Malia (and her friends) by skipping Church, as they do almost all the time?
It does seem like an “In Your Face”.

And sending your 13 YEAR OLD daughter to a country YOUR State Department tells us is dangerous for Spring Break seems a bit odd. Although not as odd as a 13 year old girl GOING ON SPRING BREAK (yeah, yeah, I’ll admit it, I AM old). Of course, it isn’t QUITE so dangerous for you child when you can send 25 SECRET SERVICE AGENTS along with her at someone else’s (you and me) expense.

I am willing to bet that we humble taxpayers are on the hook for the trip and all that Secret Service protection which is one of the main reasons for the secrecy.

They trot them out because they are kids and kids always get an “ooohhh! so cute”” from people. Also it advertises that The One and The Wife have an “intact black family,” which always plays well.

As for how the girls look, they often seem angry or bored or mulish, but I do think it’s wrong to comment overall on their appearance. Their mother puts buckaroos into facial surgery and fancy clothes and still looks like a rubber-faced puppet. The kids have what nature gave them and when they smile they look like happy kids — always charming.

Never thought of it before, but now that we know all about MOOchelle’s unprecedented, over-the-top spending and self indulgence, this is yet another major reason not to give them 4 more years.

Do we really want the additional burden of footing the bill for their 2 teenagers? It’s not going to be like Amy Carter or even Chelsea….this is going to cost major bucks! Billions – not millions!

Without the constraints of re-election, another 4 years will open the floodgates to nothing but travel. partying. and 5 Star restaurants! With the addition of 2 teenagers, it will mean more jets, dozens more Secret Service, limos, armoured vehicles, helicopters, hotels…and billions more of taxpayer $$$!

The Mexico trip is the tip of the iceberg! .

Could you even imagine the fallout if one of those kids gets hurt or worse while being babysat by the SS? While I’ve let my kids go away without me for school or summer camps, it’s usually to safe places.
I can imagine the conversation with the school administration:

Admin: We usually take the kids to Mexico but there’s a travel warning. Maybe we should go someplace else.
Obama: No, that’s only for the little people, you know, the commoners. We don’t want our Malia to miss out. Tell you what, why don’t we send some SS agents with them? They’re free, you know, we won’t have to pay for them.

Reply

Trochilus March 20, 2012 at 3:46 pm

The White House has framed this as both a “privacy” and a “security” issue, and in doing so, they failed on both levels.

The privacy issue would be arguably legitimate if it were not for the fact (as others have pointed here and elsewhere) that the President rather consistently raises eyebrows by inappropriately bringing up his daughters in relation to hot button political issues.

At least when it came to the Clintons, they were pretty much consistent across the board in trying to keep Chelsea out of the news. They did not use her as a political prop whenever it suited their political purposes, while otherwise demanding privacy. You’d have to go all the way back to Jimmy Carter, claiming he was taking foreign policy advice from his 13 year old daughter, to realize how inappropriate it is for Obama to simultaneously demand privacy for his daughters, while making them a centerpiece of his politics.

But the big fail for the Obamas on this one is the security issue. He and his wife created a security issue by, as parents, signing on to a group trip — which also created security issues for the remainder of the kids on the trip. Allowing their daughter to vacation in Mexico at a time when his State Department is simultaneously issuing travel advisory warnings in Mexico, is just plain hypocritical, and shows very bad judgment on their part. They had to know this story would come out, especially after uncharacteristically trotting off to church on Sunday without Malia. You almost get the sense they were trolling for a story so they could then come to her defense on privacy grounds.

It all comes back to that basic entitlement mentality —

“Yes, yes . . . we know it is dangerous for the hoi polloi to travel down in Mexico right now, but we of “the hoity-toity” political class are different, you see! We have extra security available to us to use at our, ahhhh, discretion. And because that supplementary protection is paid for by the taxpayers, we feel entitled to take advantage of it from time to time, thank you very much! Now, if you newspaper and other media folk would just plain shut up about us personally and unnecessarily wasting taxpayers resources, we could get back to the business of unnecessarily wasting taxpayer resources on special considerations for our contributors!”

Any guesses as to where she will be spending our taxpayer $$$ over Easter vacation? Spain, Portugal, the Bahamas, Rodeo Dr., Malibu???

I think she spends all of her time pouring over travel books and fashion magazines. I did read where she keeps a list of all the 5 Star restaurants she intends to frequent….and checks them off after she has satisfied her delicate pallet!

With only 8 months left before the election, the MOOCH must be having panic attacks – so many trips to take – and so little time!

Exactly on point! If the POTUS is capable of exercising such blatantly poor judgment when it comes to his own flesh and blood – what does it say about his leadership qualities or lack thereof! Worse yet, he put the lives of the other kids at risk!

I first questioned his judgment before the election in terms of the woman he was married to. It didn’t take long to figure out where she was coming from – and, as it turned out, they were both cut from the same cloth!

Hopefully, this botched Mexico trip will open some more eyes to the fact that Obama is lacking all critical thinking skills! His little world is beginning to implode – I only hope the Republicans have the intestinal fortitude to go on the attack! They have a treasure trove!

If the Obamas want to protect Malia, they should avoid sending her to Mexico on Spring Break.

Why are they sending Malia to Mexico when there have been official travel advisory warnings issued?

The scrubbing of the articles has nothing to do with Malia’s security and everything to do with an embarrassment for the Obamas: both the poor parenting decision and the high cost of security aka 25 agents.

Is this the same White House censorship cabal that is keeping Obama’s forged Selective Service documents from being reported on?

I wonder if Siddhell has fudged its online calendar to help keep this trip a complete secret.

After all, it’s doesn’t look so good that Michelle Antoinette and The One are training their princess daughter to have her mother’s expensive tastes.

I suppose it came down to “Malia shouldn’t miss the trip just because you’re President. Other Presidents sent their daughters on vacaytions [perhaps true, perhaps not].” It would have been better to tell this 13-year-old that there’s no need for her to go anywhere for Spring Break and part of the sacrifice of serving one’s country is thinking of the cost to taxpayers of one’s indulgences. But then, The One and The Wife don’t really care about this nation, so that argument would never be made.

My understanding is that Malia flew NOT on commercial, and was rushed to the terminal to join the trip, making it seem as if she flew with them.

The media has not learned from the past. When an oppressive regime begins its control, freedom of information is the first to go. At first, they are courted and cajoled, then the “favors” come into play, followed by veiled threats, then censure, then silence.

Congress and the Senate have been so busy one upping each other and denigrating each other , defending themselves, this administration has been given carte blanche to do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, and however it wants.
Americans have become so politically correct, the usual boundaries have been excused, explained, overlooked, and finally ignored.
