    The First Family is en route to Martha's Vineyard to begin their two-week family vacation on the Island. President Obama, the First Lady, and daughters Malia and Sasha left the White House to board Marine One on the south lawn. Marine One took off at 12:41 p.m., bound for Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. There the family boarded Air Force One for the flight to Cape Cod and the Vineyard for a 1:03 p.m. departure. Sasha and Malia were chatting with each other as they boarded first, according to pool reports, and Mr. and Mrs. Obama followed. The President was...

After touching down in Havana on Monday, the Obamas will visit a variety of historical sites with an emphasis on cultural outreach. One of the tour stops will be to the Havana Cathedral,...

    For the first time since being elected, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the United States. The “quite good-looking Canadian delegation” was welcomed to Washington, D.C., by President Obama and his family with a state dinner at the White House. But the event wasn’t just a first for Trudeau — Sasha and Malia Obama made their state-dinner debut as well.

    President Barack Obama took his teenage daughters Malia and Sasha shopping on Saturday for books and a sweet treat to promote Small Business Saturday, an annual event designed to boost holiday shopping at mom-and-pop shops. In the tiny Upshur Street Books in northwest Washington, the casually dressed Obama and his daughters browsed for books with the help of the store manager, Anna Thorn. The post-Thanksgiving book-browsing outing has become an annual tradition for the First Family.

It’s just heartwarming they’re all getting a first-class ’round the world experience – this time London, Milan, Vicenza and Venice. Media say the first lady is representing our country as she continues her march across continents, giving speeches and glad-handing with royalty and politicians. We’ve got the pictures in media – print, TV and the Internet. Yes, pictures! As I said, “Can we talk?” I have a beef with all this – and I realize I’m in somewhat dangerous territory...

In the photo, Sasha and Malia wear sundresses and stand around their parents and pups, but a cute family photo wasn’t what some people saw. Critics thought the girls’ hemlines were way too short. When one commenter called them out for their short length, saying “very short skirts girl,” another disagreed and said it was acceptable. “Finger tip length? Hello!” Another said, “Love them all but I agree with everyone saying the girls’...

    While being interviewed by Parade magazine, President and Mrs. Obama said that they would like for their daughters to have the experience of working at minimum wage jobs. Hear! Hear! In his wise book, The Curmudgeon’s Guide for Getting Ahead, Charles Murray advises the gilded youth of today, more isolated from what Episcopalians used to call “all sorts and conditions of men” than their counterparts in previous generations, to seek out summer jobs that will introduce them to people they might not ordinarily get to know. Such jobs can be transformative. “Once you have been a server in a restaurant,”...

    It was once not uncommon in 'captive' communist satellite nations (subjugated to the USSR) to give your child a Russian name, mostly to show support for the Soviet system and provide them a leg-up in the commie world. But how many (esp black) Americans do YOU know with a Russian first name? How amusing it is then that the Obamas' last federal tax return revealed a fact not publicly known- that 'Sasha's actual legal name is 'Nastasha', which means 'birthday' in the language of the USSR. And something tells me it wasn't just because it sounded pretty. Of course it's a...

"'Cause she's, you know, obviously they - and Michelle - have made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things," Obama told ABC's Barbara Walters.

For those who are shocked, here's the bottom line: Nothing anyone does or says is going to change who these people are.

    If it's really true that "children learn what they live," then the First Daughters are learning how to be highbrow aristocrats whose extravagances are enjoyed without embarrassment, in full view and at the expense of the suffering. That's right, "the suffering," because notwithstanding the onslaught of Obamaganda, most people in America today, thanks to Sasha and Malia's Dad, are suffering in one way or another. Meanwhile, when it comes to showering themselves with the perks of the good life, the Obamas exercise zero restraint. In fact, three months into the second term, they're actually outdoing themselves. Not only that, but...

Sarah Palin, wrote in a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama” on Thursday. Obama said on Wednesday that his daughers' acceptance of friends with same-sex parents helped prompt his "change in perspective." In response, Palin writes: In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia...

    President Obama endorsed same-sex marriage Wednesday, just hours after North Carolina adopted a constitutional amendment to ban it -- one of 41 states where same-sex marriage is illegal. President Obama's declaration does not change any law, but it does inject a contentious social issue into the race for the White House. "For me personally it is important for me to affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Mr. Obama said. CBS News correspondent Norah O'Donnell reports Mr. Obama has often said he was in favor of civil unions for gay and lesbian couples and...

The President said he wanted his daughters to be able to speak their minds “in a civil and thoughtful way.

Obama was making the point that if his daughters can get their homework done on time, then Congress should be able to do the same thing. However, there is only one tiny problem. Malia, Obama's oldest daughter, is not yet 13. She is 12 and will turn 13 next month on July 4th.

    BUFFALO, NY--The Erie County district attorney yesterday fired a long-time assistant who complained in media reports that the office had failed to properly investigate alleged 2007 election law violations. District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said in a statement that he would not tolerate an assistant prosecutor, Mark Sacha, who violated "appropriate standards of professional behavior with impunity." In an interview last month with the Buffalo News, Mr. Sacha accused the office of giving a "pass" to Democratic operative G. Steven Pigeon for alleged election law violations during the 2007 campaign for Erie County executive. In his statement yesterday, Mr....

    Here is video showing that President Obama either misrepresented the facts in telling a personal story about his daughter Sasha having been "diagnosed with meningitis," or he simply did not know the facts. At any rate, the New York Times reported: In her speech, Mrs. Obama also told the story of how her daughter Sasha would not stop crying when she was 4 months old. A doctor’s visit revealed she might have meningitis; she ultimately did not, but the illness produced a scare.Thankfully, she did not have meningitis. But why would Obama say she was "diagnosed with meningitis." This is...

    OTIS AIR BASE, Mass. (Aug. 23) - Hurricane Bill blew out in time for the Obama family to blow in to Martha's Vineyard for the president's first vacation since taking office.

The hurricane forced the president to delay his departure from Andrews Air Force Base by a few hours to midafternoon. During the flight from Washington to the Coast Guard station at Otis Air...

According to a source with ties to the school, the only items up for bid from the Obamas included a signed...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Malia and Sasha Obama learned a few tricks from Barbara and Jenna Bush on their recent visit to the White House — like how to slide down the solarium ramp, bottom first. The daughters of President George W. Bush showed the girls their bedrooms, helped them jump on a bed and taught them a few ways to have fun, Laura Bush told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday. "It was fun for the girls to get to show them not only (their rooms), but the way the big cross hall can be an obstacle course for little...

    A "silent night" as carolers told to stop singing at skating show RIVERSIDE, Calif.
