Maybe because it’s three months old and the subject has already been thoroughly discussed?

Just wondering what the *reasoning* is behind this thread being pulled.

Thank you in advance.

My guess is that, because it is an old story which was discussed to death on FR and other conservative sites.

It says it was pulled because of old news. If you go to your link, you will see it.

It is old news, and there were several articles back when the original vacation took place, along with info about the number of SS agents that went along.

I was covered on FR. It’s old news. The MSM did not miss it. Fox News covered it and the WH involved in the MSM black out. Search “Malia” in FR. It’s there.

In what forum did you post the thread? News/Activism, bloggers, chat, ? If it was news/activism then it may have survived in one of the others since is was a few months old info. Just guessing.

When you say scrubbed what you talking about?
I just a quick search and found 153 links to various stories about this very item.

Thanks for the reply.

Unsatisfactory as it is. We part company when this news flies in the face of regime hypocrisy for *transparency*, need fiscal responsibility and need for holding *feet-to-the-fire*.

So be it. :) I’m glad to *invest in education...the economy of the future*.

I did a search on Bing using this search term: obama daughter goes to mexico on spring break...and found many links to the story.

As far as FR goes, the trip actually took place in March, and using the Title search for the word Mexico, and going back to March, I found these:

And that means what?
Your post is started because you said the story was scrubbed, it wasn’t.
So to counter that, you post links to the information from people are saying its been scrubbed.
What are you going for here?

>> FR tries “to leave the kids alone”<<

There was no mention of *the kids* and criticizing them.

The full topic and comments were waste, hypocrisy, and transparency. I’m content with believing I am the only one who cares.

With all the projection here, I’m going to assume, it’s all by Obama voters.

Think of it like I do. I post some crap - the mods pulls it - we go on.

I think it is a good thing that the plans of the family of the president are scrubbed. The less information out there, the better protected they are.

Criticize your own shortcomings. Not all fault you can’t type “spring break” into the FR search engine. Also not our fault you didn’t pay attention when the story actually broke last March.

What part of the first two words of the post being "Obama's daughter" isn't?

and criticizing them.

To which your very next sentence conflicts with

The full topic and comments were waste, hypocrisy, and transparency

Then ignore all the "it's been done to death" posts above to say

I’m content with believing I am the only one who cares.

Then launch into an outright universal ad-hominim attack of

With all the projection here, I’m going to assume, it’s all by Obama voters.

Sorry, who's projecting what where?

I once had a thread pulled.

I think there might be a FReeper Support Group Ping for that. The support group and some Cymbalta got me through those dark and lonely days. I refer to that time in my FReeper life as the “Threadless Downturn Humiliation Epoch.”

I’m better now. This FReeper that goes by Laz got me through those days. You should ping him. He can be so compassionately supportive.

Hell, I'd advise you go even further: Don't let family-of-the-President-travel-plan threads stand at all. Maybe other sites want to host them, fine, but 1) Why make terrorist work easier and 2) Why let our site be exposed if a crazy got lucky? "....and it is reported that the dead suspect had a laptop that detailed the location and schedule of the President's child, and the information was apparantly gleaned from a right-wing website called 'Free Republic'...." and etcetera.

After-action threads? Fine.

Posted prior to the trip? I'd kill the thread.
