Michelle Obama reveals she 'scared the heck' out of daughter before giving her a cell phone (and White House security screened every contact number on it first)

......FULL TITLE

Michelle Obama has revealed that she waited until her eldest daughter was 12 before giving her a mobile because owning one is ‘a lot of responsibility’.

The First Lady said she ‘scared the heck’ out of Malia with ‘days of lectures’ on the dangers of talking to strangers before handing the device over.

I’m pretty sure the scarage wasn’t neccessary. I think the POTUS’ children are the last kids in the universe one has to worry about being lured away by paedophiles.

If owning a cell phone is “a lot of responsibility” why is the Federal government giving them away complete with a call plan to the unemployed (with the taxpayers, once again, paying for the redistribution of income)?

Oh good God, this is such a pathetic new campaign by Team Obama. Trying to portray them as regular folk with normal issues.

"‘I don’t even know who your friends are if they can connect to you without picking up a phone and saying: ‘Hello, Mrs Obama, this is X calling for Malia’."

What a load of crapola. Like Moochie is baking cookies in the kitchen and answers the phone when Cindy from down the street calls for her daughter.

(vomit break)

OK, I'm back... And Malia's going to start texting with some neighborhood child molester who wants to meet up with her later and the Secret Service will never notice.

I can't even believe liberal morons fall for this new image making excercise.

“Even then the phone was restricted to certain numbers and every person on her contacts list had to be screened to make sure they were not a threat.”

This tax payer funded task was an exploitation of the Secret Service and a government service that we, the common folk do not have available to screen our kid's friends list.

And even more troubling is the fact that Obama likely talks about Top Secret issues over dinner or while watching TV.

What if this “Malia” character is some type of Secret Agent for some other nation and is using her cell phone to transmit Top Secret information?

Why does a 12 yr old girl, with a personally assigned Secret Service security task force assigned to her, who attends a private school - need a cell phone at all?

It’s not like she rides the bus to school, or runs around by herself when she visits her friends. You know, like normal folks ....

What is she talking about? I worry about my kids in a lot of ways, but talking to strangers on a telephone was about the last thing I worried about.

I’d be much more concerned with the internet usage, e-mail and chat rooms and the like; For the phones, I just gave them pay-per-call phones and said they had $5 a month to call home with. It kept them from doing anything much else with the phones.

Of course, now they are older, and pay for their own text message plans. Nobody hardly uses the phone for talking anymore. My son uses skype if he wants to talk to his friends, usually while they are playing video cames on the computer.

No surprise, she scares the heck out of me every time I see her picture or hear her voice.

That's a no-brainer. She gets the day's talking points via text message - from Axlegrease, Plouffy, and Gibbs.

I thought, according to these ‘progressive’ (read, commie) POS, any exercise of perceived parental authority was “child abuse”. That’s property of the state you’re lecturing, Mooshell.

As usual, the Obamas speak publicly about their kids, then turn around and tell others to leave them alone.

I don’t care about anything she gives or doesn’t give to Sushi and Malaria. She’s a total hypocrite and should learn to not speak about anything in her personal life.

If I was Sanford and Aunt Esther kept coming over, I’d WANT to have an attack for real just to get away from her.

I was up in Ventura, California over the weekend. Quite a few homeless up there. I counted 3 out of 6 with cell phones... smart phones! they were flipping pages with their fingers, as done with an iPHONE. These were clearly people pushing their belongings in a shopping cart.

“The First Lady said she ‘scared the heck’ out of Malia with ‘days of lectures’ on the dangers of talking to strangers before handing the device over.”

Does her daughter have a habit of calling up strangers at random?

She has a good point. I just wish she had delivered the same lecture to the 69,000,000 voters who decided they could trust a total stranger with our country in 2008.

Our friends gave their kids cellphones too so that they could call their parents and grandparents and a few other key people. They didn’t scare them to death at all. Didn’t have to. They told the kids the dangers etc... and if I’m not mistaken the numbers the kids were given were the ONLY numbers they could call. They had an intelligent conversation with both kids and they did and are still doing fine. No scare tactics needed. Go figure.

Mooch “the hate filled” Mamma probably only warned her girls about evil white men. The kids are probably terrified of their own Secret Service baby sit... um, guards.

This crazed women let one of them go to Mexico with 10 or 15 friends for spring break! (How much did that cost us in Secret Service protection?) I don’t think anything she tells them about safety will register longer than a fraction of a second.
