Happy Sweet 16, Malia Obama! A look
back at the First Daughter´s year as
she celebrates her milestone birthday

Daily Mail [UK], by Margot Peppers

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 1:16:36 PM

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday. The First Daughter, who has recently been in California doing a TV production internship, was just ten years old when her father was first elected President of the United States. And over the past six years, the country has witnessed her grow up into a tall, stylish and mature teen, giving her parents plenty of reasons to be proud. The Obamas will be ringing in the holiday tonight with a Pitbull concert on the South Lawn of the White

Comments:
Surprisingly, there are actually a few photos where she managed to smile. I find it creepy that Obama holds hands with his older daughter. I never remember doing that with my Dad. He would put his arm around my shoulders but we sure didn´t walk about holding hands!

Is it my imagination or are there just as many sullen faced pictures as smiling ones of those kids?

I would not be so quick to appreciate this article about Malia´s 16th birthday because I know she will probably turn out just like her parents.

For me, a cute kitten far out strips the awwwww factor of the First Family´s children.

I wish her a happy birthday too. I agree with #7 it has to be difficult to grow up with the scrutiny you receive as a Presidents child. Whatever you think of her parents political views they do seem to love their daughters. I just hope they don´t grow up to be jerks like mom and dad.

It´s not creepy for a father to hold his daughters hand. I see it a lot. It´s a sign of affection nothing more. I´d rather see a father hold his daughters hand than have her walk behind him.

By far the number of photos where she is happy, smiling´ or laughing are all the candid photos where she is enjoying herself. The unsmiling ones, and I´ve noticed this throughout the years are the ceremonial ones, walking off AF1, etc where you know there are a hoard of photographers snapping away. These situations would be hard for any kid or teenager because they are more or less being asked to ´perform´ and are not really doing anything. All the candid shots I see of both girls they look very normal for teenagers and seem to have a great relationship with their parents. Anyone can be caught in a picture taken where they are not smiling.

Yes, "odd." I think this is a manufactured family and that Michelle is simply a Beard. Or perhaps she is a tranny, as someone said. I thought children had to be 16 to work. So wasn´t Malia working for pay as an intern at 15 years old?

I couldn´t care less about Malia or Sasha. They will be just like Chelsea Clinton - given undeserved red-carpet treatment wherever they go. Given high-paying "jobs" just because of their last name, and forever treated as celebrities. They should go live with those poor kids in the DHS shelters for a few days and see what real challenges are, and to see what their father has wrought.

And did this article say Pit Bull was performing on the WH lawn? That guy is very crude and rude, hardly a role model.

Reply 19, false dichotomy. For it´s doubtful Jenna Bush is paid $600 thousand a year for doing nothing. If her salary was obscene, a lib would have leaked the amount as cover for the bad publicity clintons received over chelsea´s fake job at nbc. What´s more, Jenna has exponentially more talant and charm than chelsea.

Certainly Jenna is more charming and has a lot more on-air talent than Chelsea ever will. I think Jenna is adorable. But the point is she nor Chelsea would have never gotten their foot in the door for an interview much less a job on a national network show with zero experience if their name was not Bush or Clinton. Doesn´t matter what their pay is, they wouldn´t have been considered until they had a good resume of on-air tv work.

We don´t want to know what she was given for her birthday.

Has anyone ever seen these girls in the same outfit or shoes twice ?

She should spend the summer learning to drive at Camp David.

John Kerry chose the third anniversary of U.S. citizen Amir Hekmati’s "detention on false espionage charges" during a visit with his family in Iran in 2011 to "respectfully" call on the government of Iran to release Hekmati and several other U.S. citizens held or missing in that country. Saeed Abedini and Jason Rezaian, the latter a Washington Post reporter, are also being held.

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people´s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.” “The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said. “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report. Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that President Obama may postpone his sweeping executive actions on immigration until after the midterm elections. Why? Because Democrats are begging him to: The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue. Some Democratic senators have said he should wait for Congress to pass legislation. Wait. Why would they want to do that? Aren’t the policies Obama is proposing on immigration wildly popular? That’s what they keep telling us, anyway. “I promise you, the American people

“Oops.” In the wake of criticism over a two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the NFL has established a six-game unpaid ban for personnel who violate the league’s policy on domestic violence, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. A second incident would be punished by a lifetime ban from the league, Goodell said in a letter and memo to the owners of the league’s 32 teams. Without referring to Rice by name, he acknowledged in his letter that he made the wrong decision in that case. “I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will,” he

Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have voted. It

Both Simpsons earned a majority of the vote, effectively pushing out Tea Party Republicans in the precinct.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, is resigning from the campaign. Benton, who previously held high-level roles in Ron Paul and Rand Paul’s campaigns, confirmed his resignation Friday evening, explaining that he is stepping down after his name surfaced in news reports about a scandal involving the 2012 presidential campaign. Earlier this week, a former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to charges related to receiving money from the Ron Paul presidential campaign in return for his endorsement. Benton, who was Paul’s political director, denies any wrongdoing but admits it has become a distraction for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson is continuing to hint that he will run for president in 2016, though pledges that if elected he won’t become a “politician” in the traditional sense. “I will tell you that I’m not a politician, and I don’t believe in political correctness,” Carson told the crowd Friday at a political summit in Texas. “So I may say something that will offend someone. And I frankly never plan on becoming a politician. It doesn’t mean that I won’t do something in public office, but I won’t be a politician in the process.” Carson made the comments Friday afternoon in Dallas at Americans for Prosperity’s Defending the American Dream Summit.

Lawmakers are fuming over President Barack Obama´s admission on Thursday that his White House lacks a strategy for dealing with the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria, with one congressman comparing his performance to the bumbling sheriff´s deputy Barney Fife from ´The Andy Griffith Show.´ And as House and Senate members piled on with sharp criticism, a former senior aide to a retired defense secretary told MailOnline that the Joint Chiefs of Staff are ´seeing red´ and ´spitting nails´ following Obama´s candid admission. ´They´re losing confidence in their mission,´ said the long-time Pentagon insider,

The latest Gallup poll on President Obama job performance is out. At the top line, things could be worse for the president and his party. 44 percent approve of his performance, while 53 percent disapprove. That’s considerably worse than in the run-up to the 2010 election, and certainly cause for concern among Democrats. But Dems won’t be surprised by this split which, as I said, could be worse. The intensity numbers, however, are terrible for Obama and the Dems. 39 percent of Americans (essentially 2 in 5) say they strongly disapprove of the president’s performance. Only 17 percent say they strongly approve.

That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
