Even before Iowa Congressman Steve King criticized Sasha and Malia Obama’s spring break trip, the vacation had provided fodder for the far right media. Few people understand that better than Salon.com’s editor-at-large Joan Walsh, who found herself part of the controversy.

It's OK to attack the Bush daughters because they deserved it, but it's racist to tell where the Obama daughters are vacationing because that's suggesting they are uppity Negros ... high-level welfare queens ... living it up on our dime.
P.S. Back in the good old days, the hippie idiots had a game where they would place an Alka-Seltzer tablet on their tongue ... the last one to puke won. Similarly, we need to have a contest to see who can watch the Al Sharpton video embedded in the article the longest before ...
Let me see, uhmmm, oh yes, we are all RACISTS!
Yes, that’s it!
</sarcasm barf off>
Actually, when they shut down White House tours, etc because of a lack of $$ yet their kids are jetting all over the place, I think they kind of set themselves up to be criticized..
Now that news has been reported that the Obama girls have taken TWO SPRING BREAK TRIPS (to the Bahamas and to Utah to ski) in ONE WEEK, I wonder how the liberal idiots will spin this?
Well, that IS an accurate description of all of our Government officials in Washington D.C. They ARE living on the taxpayer's dime, and rather than treating the taxpayer's hard earned labor in a frugal manner - they treat themselves to gold-plated health care plans; extravagant vacations and junkets; and endless treats. The ARE all welfare queens. The President and his family appear to be the most egregious - just how many vacations does one need? And why are we paying for it? - but I'd lump the Senate and most of the House into the same bucket of faux royalty.
Articles like these make me feel better. When liberals play the race card on any issue you know they know they are losing the argument.
I think they are the ones the one holding themselves to a “different standard”.. of course someone is going to notice and point that out..
They set themselves up for criticism and now that they are getting it, they hope to bully us into silence by screaming “Racist.”
Me thinks the left is demanding a double standard for the Obamas.
Here how it is...you gets jello and we gets ice cream and cake.
They’re certainly trying to unload the cash register one vacation, one cocktail dress, one round of golf at at time!
It’s great fun spending OTHER PEOPLES’ money!!
If the Obama family was white and republican they would have been torn to shreds in the MSM by now.
Of course that ignores the fact that if they were white and republican Barack would never have been elected to the Senate or the Presidency.
It would be difficult to come up with a more succinct and accurate description of the First Moochers.
Obama’s daughters are NOT being targeted for anything outside of how much the Obama’s are spending tax payer money to spoil them. In contrast, the extensive criticisms of the Bush daughters were about their personnel characters. The hypocrisy is so absurd as to make one wonder about the mental competency of the left to operate as adults in a free society.
This is part of why the media collectively worked to hide his background and conceal his past associations.
If Obama had turned around the economy, or even put the U.S. economy on his priorities list, his plush lifestyle wouldn't be an issue. The basis for criticism is that millions of Americans suffer while Obama dines and parties like a rock star. Someone on FOX News Watch last weekend described Obama’s relationship with the press as “Master/slave.” MSNBC best exemplifies that.
Never mind how they treated Bush’s daughters...look at how they treated Sarah Palin’s family. This liberal couldn’t BUY a clue.
There’s a “far-right media”??
Tell me where they are-I haven’t been able to find them!
I can’t even find one in the middle,i.e.the real journalists...
It would be fun to do a comparison chart containing the Obamas, the Bushs and just for the fun of it, the Palins-and note/compare each vacation, the cost and media coverage/quips ....gee-I wonder what the result would be?
Investigating the DNA of Palin’s Down Syndrome child was vital to the national interest.
Very similar to the status of Joe the Plumber’s trade license.
How dare you say he didn't pay his fair share! Poor little Bo was denied his separate vacation this week and all he's getting for Easter is a basket of bunny shaped vegan gourmet dog treats.
Indeed. Simply stating the obvious.
Agreed. But digging into those things was done and made public. Sauce for the goose....
Besides, this isn’t about DNA or a license, this is about taxpayer money at a time the King has decided to throw the people out of Our House while claiming poverty. Spending a fortune on his kids’ vacations is fair game.
Release the Kraken.
Is MSNBC funded by Democrat Party?? The absolutely have their nose up Obama’s butt.. They think the guy walks on water and anyone that disagrees should be jailed.
Yeah, George Bush was blasted for going to his own house!
Even worse, they take their tourist dollars outside of the country....remember after the Gulf Oil spill, how Michelle urged Americans to vacation in the Gulf? Yeah right, like Michelle was going to do that.
The profound difference is that the Bush girls spent mostly the family's money, and not the working taxpayer's.
Give what is essentially trailer trash the opportunity, and the 'no restraint' culture comes to the fore.
Be fair, the Bush girls were grown up by then.
It's perfectly OK for pre-adults to spend public moneys because they're "privileged."
That definitely produces "adults" of a different sort. But it's not their fault.
I stand corrected.
