For what its worth when it comes to children and politics the media tries to leave them alone, which is to say they do a story on one of the first
children and are then threatened by the President staff to leave them alone. The same thing occurred during Bush's time in the White House as well as
with Chelsie Clinton.
Obama is the person we get to criticize as he is the public official. His wife and children should be left out of it as they are nothing more than
victims of circumstance. As much as Obama annoys me, taking it out on his wife and children make no sense.
A former President described the Office of the President as the crown jewel of the American penal system. You literally become a hostage, not being
able to do anything without armed guards or a motorcade. Now take that and apply it to the wife and children, whose lives are even worse being their
friends have to undergo background checks just to play with their friends.
I have no issues holding Obama accountable as he is our elected leader. However his wife and children should be off limits. They lost their father and
their lives the moment Obama was elected and in that process lost their freedom as well. You can either go on vacation or be held captive in the White
House. I'm willing to cut the wife and kids slack knowing what they have to deal with, especially the kids. Being a kid is awkward enough as it is.
Factor in the fact your the Presidents child and it becomes an entirely different experience.
