Obama Talks Kid's Growing Pains ["She's (Malia's) Starting to Look Too Old for Me."]
Politico ^ | 07/09/10 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 07/09/2010 5:23:19 AM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

This is one way to earn a "Not cool, Dad..." comment from your daughter: Talk about her new braces while giving a speech.

But President Barack Obama did just that Thursday while delivering remarks in Kansas City at a fundraiser for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan.

"You know, the — I don't have teenagers yet — Malia's just turned 12," said Obama, according to a pool report. "She's my baby. She's going — even though she's 5'9" now, she's still my baby. And she just got braces, which is good, because she looks like a kid and she was getting — she's starting to look too old for me."

It’s pretty rare that I can sympathize with The One on anything, but I know how he feels.

Seems like one day, your baby is showing you that toothless smile, drooling and rolling over on the floor, and the next day, she’s holed up in her room all day, only making a brief appearance at dinner.

As much as I despise this guy, I know what he means by this. It is weird to suddenly see young adults. Conservatives would do better to leave this alone, we have much more relevant stuff to work with.

I try my best to keep my eye on Obama’s policies, which I despise. Although we have to deal with his character, or lack of it, also.

But I too can understand his sentiment here. I won’t waste a lot of energy wondering whether it was sincere or not. Even despots care about their kids.

God, these people keep throwing their kids out there as fodder. Last time, Mom went on some pitiful rant about her daughters being overweight, the doctor telling her they were fat. Can’t they just leave their kids out of the line of fire? Haven’t they learned anything?

“she was getting — she’s starting to look too old for me.”

This is just a little too creepy for me.

Oh, I know exactly what he meant... but: the rabidly leftist MSM in this country spent eight long, shrill years pouncing on each and every conceivable verbal miscue or what-have-you made by our last President. Therefore, I'm never anything less than ecstatic to return said favor on behalf of their current jug-eared prophet...

... tenfold, if at all possible. ;)

One thing I don’t think I’ll ever accuse Obama of is lusting after budding teenage girls.

The man is lost without his teleprompter. I think he meant that she was starting to look too mature, until she got those braces, and now she looks less grown up. The way he said it made it sound like...well, never mind.

Where's Bill Ayers when he needs him?

Obambi = dimwitted clod...

How positively insenitive!!!

This is not the first time he's made the mistake of calling attention to this youngster --> 78% in science

And, his wife calling her daughters fat publicly... eeeks

If I were one of those kids, I'd wonder if I wasn't adopted...

All part of his PR campaign to convince the non political that he isn't a scary global communist puppet hell bent on destroying the US. Why, he's just like you, he can identify with your "kid" stuff.

he isn’t actually checking out that behind.

Bingo.

Many teenagers think their Dad is a dork. Eventually, they grow up and find out that Dad was and is a heck of a lot smarter and wiser than they could possibly have imagined.

Poor girls ...

They'll grow up, and realise that yes indeed: Dad really is a dork.

That’s their “next frontier”.

They already have the APA stating that “adult-child sex” is good for the children.

BINGO!

To Obama his children are props (it's a narcissist thing). They are valued possessions as long as they provide some sort of value, whether it's something the narcissist may like such as reading a bedtime story and hearing a sweet voice saying, "I love you", or fodder for a speech. The children are great as long as they provide the narcissist with something he wants. If they stop providing value, they're ignored in the same way a 5 year-old ignores a toy that no longer interests him.

I don't think he was pandering his kids. I think it was more a matter of not knowing what to say without the teleprompter. He can not speak off the cuff.

I always give him a pass on that incident. That's a butt that would give any straight man whiplash.

As for the picture in post #1: Yikes! I haven't paid much attention to his kids, but when he was inaugurated they were two little girls. Malia now looks older than 12 in that picture.

Barry, NOW is the time to cash on on those big money opportunities. Pull a Billy Ray Cyrus and start pimping her out to Hollyweird. She is attractive enough. That and being the daughter of a sitting President should trump any lack of talent. Big bucks my boy. You should be able to quit your day job in a year or so. Think about it.

I'm with you. Malia is a cute little girl, and there is something seriously wrong with any adult who sees her as anything different. Sure, she's tall, but she is very obviously just a girl. Once again I wonder: what is going on in Obama's strange mind?
