Every "journalist" at Breitbart needs to be drug out into the street and tarred and feathered.  Worthless, lying, two-digit IQ jagoffs, all of them.

Funny how that works. I don't recall right (or left) wing media outlets dogging the Bush daughters like that.
 
Except that time they underaged drinking while in college.

There is no frothing rightwing rage quite equal to the frothing rightwing rage over Dubya getting called out, rightly, for being literally on vacation a large part of his term, and figuratively on vacation for all of it.

So now, anything "vacation" related to a Democratic president is automatic full-on frothing rightwing rage.

There was no George W. Bush, 2000-2008 never happened (except for 9/11) and the terrible economy is the result of two successive Democrats in power.

Citrate1007: Breitbart is the price we pay for free press/speech.


I'd rather pay that price than not have free speech, though. It would be nice if they'd have some farking integrity, but we all make sacrifices in order to let others enjoy their freedoms.
 
To be fair, the MSM, DID dog the Bush girls' lives, but that was just to tell us which bars were most likely to let underage girls with Secret Service details sneak in...
 
Breitbart is pretty much a sewer, so I'm not sure why anyone expected anything different from them.

The Secret Service is obviously part of Big Government™, so the Bush girls were doing their patriotic duty by trying to ditch them.

I remember the Bush daughter's antics only being covered left wing blogs and in The Enquirer and then people saying "The President's daughters are off limits, girls will be girls!" and then the Enquirer got anthraxed.

Do "normal children" have spring break in Cancun?  Kids with wealthy or famous parents don't exactly have a normal (to me meaning average) life.  It's pretty exceptional.  But, you don't disclose where the president's kids when they aren't with mom and dad.  Christ on a cracker, you just don't do it.
 
Growing up, Florida, Myrtle Beach, and California were where parents took their kids, if they could afford to go anywhere at all.
 
Maybe it's just the income level I grew up in, but even now most if not all of the kids in the neighborhood stay home during Spring Break (and they had 2 weeks of it this year), either at a sitters or with one of the older kids watching them.

"Normal children" have Spring Break all over the place. Some go to Mazatlan, Acapulco or Puerto Vallarta. Some go to San Diego or Los Angeles. Some go to Miami Beach or Key West. Others(Even "normal" ones) save up their money and go to places like Cancun or The Bahamas. They'll save all year for this, and split up a hotel room between 15 people, but they still do it.

That's what's sticking out as odd to me.

They're there without their parents.

by themselves? That's what I find odd. Again, they have the SS there to watch them and they don't have to pay to have them there so it does open up possibilities that most other people, even the rich (ish) ones don't have.

I knew a good number of people whose parents would send them on Spring Break when they were in college but I don't think it's all that common for kids who are Malia and Sasha's ages to do it, even for wealthy people.

I don't recall it in the Midwest, but based on my anecdotal observations, it's much more common in the South.   Even the redneck kids would go to PC Beach.

I thought that Natalle Holloway going to Aruba in high school thing was weird until I found out that I was the weirdo for never going to the beach with my friends in high school.  We would go camping which is pretty much what people in my high school would do.

incendi: Eh, it does when Daddy is rich (ish). I mostly grew up with poor people, but even I knew a couple that had ridiculous spring breaks in high school.


In high school AP Stats class, I was the poor kid in a sea of rich kids. After spring break, my fellow students happily taunted our teacher with tales of the size of the roaches they'd smoked in Jamaica (yes, they called them roaches), and others talked about how awesome Cancun was. They all went on their own or with friends, no guardians. Meanwhile, my dad would have pooped a wombat-sized brick if I'd tried to do the same thing. Another friend of mine was living alone in Paris at the time, responsible for cooking his own food and getting to classes all on his own. Rich kids live a different life.

To be honest, though, if there's some form of adult supervision for safety, and if the kid is mature for her age, there's no reason a 15 year old can't take her sister to the Bahamas. I haven't seen anything to suggest that the Obama kids are anything but mature, poised, intelligent young women, and they're at the age where they should be able to spread their wings a bit.

kids in my HS went on weekend ski trips which I was never allowed to attend. At the time I was of course furious but being older and a parent now it seems like a no-brainer to prevent your kids from going away with a bunch of 16 year olds. I don't recall any trips to the Caribbean. I didn't go away without parental supervision until I was in college

At 15 my parents allowed me to go to Chicago for the weekend to a Matt Hoffman freestyle contest with a friend of mine who was competing.  We were unsupervised.  We stayed with people in their early-20s, smoked weed, I did nitrous for the first time, hung out with trashy women, met Spike Jonze (who was just a freestyle photog then) and a whole lot of other hijinks such as riding our bikes down the stairs of the hotel.  I cannot believe my parents let that happen, but then I never got caught so they had no reason to think I was into trouble.   All my friends were bad kids.  They're all doctors and lawyers now.  Weird how that happens.

hehe yeah most of us much turned out pretty well despite doing our best to pull the wool over our parents' eyes and working class childhoods. Luckily for me, my mom was an angel growing up and while my dad was a serious trouble maker he was always working when I was a kid and moved out when I was an early teen so I got away with a lot more than I would otherwise. My son isn't going to be so lucky :)
 
2013-04-01 01:04:08 PM
I'm assuming that grandma is with them.  Regardless it's not comparable to just sending kids off on a vacation.  They probably watched closer than most parents would.  I feel for these kids, every move is watched and critiqued and people say horrible things about their mum/dad.    Let them go have fun for a couple weeks, throw water balloons, look at cute boys and eat junk food.
 
2013-04-01 01:04:30 PM
There is no such thing as a presidential vacation.  Whoever is in office is lucky to get any sleep ever.
 
2013-04-01 01:22:36 PM
Why is everyone assuming they are there with only SS as supervision?  Is there a source saying they are there without a nanny/babysitter/adult friend of the family?  I wouldn't let my minor daughters go on vacation alone anywhere, but if they were with an adult I trust, maybe.

One thing i've noticed. The less strict the parents overall but the harder the hammer when the fark-up is big enough the more successful the kid is in the end.

Strict about everything makes a kid meek and afraid to stand up for themselves and generally are worse off then their parents. They are most likely to be the biggest rebels and turn out like a crap shoot.
 
2013-04-01 01:26:56 PM
I'm no fan of Breitbart, and this is such a non-story anyway (really, Obama's daughters went on VACATION! THE HORROR!)  But doesn't it seem a little scary that mainstream news organizations have specific traditions as to what they will report with the administration? What other things have the decided not to report on due to traditions?
