This isn't about the kids, so please leave them out of it. This is about the subservient news media that caters coverage to the dictates of the Obama regime.

As a private business “Us” magazine is free to cooperate with the Obamas, presumably in hopes of getting future access. Just as I am free not to purchase “Us” magazine.

While the name of the restaurant Red Robin may be innocuous to most Americans the song “Red Robin” has been commandeered by Obama and the Democratic Socialists.

In fact, the DSA have used the song “Red Robin” to incite revolution! Look at this WND article on the Democrats and their use of the song!

http://www.wnd.com/2010/08/190761/

“When the Red Revolution brings its solution along, along, there’ll be no more lootin’ when we start shootin’ that Wall Street throng. …”

Red Robin has deep Communist Overtones and the Obamas are using the Red Robin restaurant to send a message that they are in fact Communists!

Oh BS...

Maybe the White House wants the media to leave his kids alone. Maybe for their protection. Maybe for their privacy.

FR always screaming "leave the kids alone" and then you post this vanity about the media pulling stories about them.

Ah, but this is about spouses and kids: The Democrats had no problem going after Mrs. Romney, Governor Palin’s children (all the way down to her Down’s Syndrome infant) and hundreds of other GOP candidate’s spouses and children. You can’t fight a war with one hand tied behind your back! If the enemy has no scruples, then they’ve set up the ground rules, haven’t they?

“Before leaving the restaurant, the First Lady left a generous tip for the server....”

Not just any tip. Shows how much she cares about the little people.

Maybe the article was pulled because of the politically very incorrect menu? Since Mechelle is so big on healthy eating and likes to tell us all that we should be chewing on carrots and celery sticks?

That was my thought, too. Having never been to a Red Robin, I really don't know for sure what they serve, but I would guess it's more of a trendy expensive cheeseburger type place?

I have no problem with the MSM refusing to cover the activities and doings of the president’s minor children. I just wish they’d apply the rule to the minor children of all presidents.

I also figured it was pulled because it makes Michelle’s “Move On” campaign look bad- cheese burgers and milkshakes. I’ve never eaten at Red Robin. I’ve seen their commercials though and know I couldn’t eat a whole burger and it would be a huge waste of money. I thought the burgers in their commercials just looked over-the-top for a meal for anyone, except maybe someone 300+ pounds, or in our family, split 3 ways.

Red Robin????? WOW!!! They KNOW they are in trouble with the people!!!! The past three years they would have been jetting off to someplace very exotic and upscale!!!

I've been saying..."WATCH THEIR VACATIONS" if you want to know how the polls are REALLY going for them!!!

RED ROBIN brings a SMILE to my face becaue they are in DEEP TROUBLE!!However, when the polls show they can't win even with massive VOTE FRAUD, look for AIR FORCE ONE to be revved up for the USUAL trips!!

Yet you use the name of one of Obama children in your vanity in breaking news.

You have made it about the children with this thread. We have plenty of issues about Obama that we can talk about without bringing his children into the discussion.

Leave kids alone!

The Obamas want it both ways, and the media complies. Use the kids as props for campaign ads and merchandise while declaring other mentions verbotten and duly censored.

Is Sasha old enough to get a summer job? Then again maybe they won’t allow her to have one because then she would have more experience in the private sector than her father...You know the guy hobnobbing with the stars and 1%.
The guy busy flushing our country into the toilet.
What’s this got to do with Red Robin..nothing. Who cares?

Amen to that kristinn. I am amazed how so many media organizations submit their Constitutional First amendment rights to the approval Barack Hussein Obama.

Disgusting. Are there NO real men left in journalism, or have they all turned into five year old children asking permission to potty?

The media don't have to "touch" the Palin Kids. The Palin kids have a hard enough time staying away from reality TV. Of course - their Mom demands they be left alone - unless she wants to use them for props.

I’d say it’s about Moochelle Obama’s hypocrisy, since there isn’t anything on the Red Robin menu that is less than 1200 calories.

Say what? I’m not easily offened but when I hit report abuse one time as a poster referred to ‘Slasher and Malaria’... nothing was done.

Other than that - I have no problem commenting on them when the media does so first.

Oh come on now! Does anybody really care that Obama’s cute little designer rugrat had a birthday party? That’s just being nosy, because it definitely isn’t news. Nobody cared when all the other presidents’ kids had parties. I don’t blame them for doing a media blackout on this one.

Back in my Crusading Reporter days, we never pulled stories under pressure, unless it was a military thing.

We had a “boys will be boys” thing about politicians sexual antics, for example JFK sleeping with anything with a vagina and a pulse, but other than that, we ran with the stories.

The only story we ever pulled was our Bay of Pigs story. We had a few days early from Cuban sources in Tampa.

If this had been about the Bush daughters, it would have been a yawner.

The problem seems to be the relatively decadent fare. Michelle has been preaching against such diets. Can’t show her up for a hypocrite can we?

This isn't about the kids, so please leave them out of it.

The kids aren't the ones responsible for an over the top, lavish party on the taxpayer dollar, nor are the kids responsible for pressuring the press not to report it. No one is blaming the kids. The focus is on their spendthrift parents, our First Couple.

This is an example of Barry and Mooch's royalty complex. It can't be reported without mentioning the details--namely the kids.
