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.

In looking at the photos, Mom must have had a million dollars in ´work´ since 2008.

Oh, garbage. Lots of young people are hired without experience because of who they are. But in almost every case they have to prove themselves to keep the job. Jenna did. chelsea flopped, she no longer does any work at nbc, but still draws a $600 thousand salary that you say doesn´t matter.

In a speech at the UN earlier this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a dire warning for the world of the danger of a nuclear Iran. "Once Iran produces atomic bombs, all the charms and all the smiles will suddenly disappear. They’ll just vanish. And it´s then that the ayatollahs will show their true face and unleash their aggressive fanaticism on the entire world," Netanyahu said. Last week on “The Factor,” Charles Krauthammer said that President Obama and his administration are “surrendering” to Iran on the nuclear weapons front. Tonight, Krauthammer returned to the show and warned that this is

Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, indicated Tuesday that the FCC may begin fining broadcasters for saying the Washington Redskins name on air. The FCC recently received a petition from John Banzhaf III, a legal activist and George Washington University professor, calling on the agency to strip a Washington, D.C., radio station of its broadcasting license for using the name, according to Reuters. “We’ll be looking at that petition, we will be dealing with that issue on the merits and we’ll be responding accordingly,” Wheeler said during a conference with reporters, according to Reuters.

Shortly after Breitbart News revealed that the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) had deleted its past two Friday sermons from its website, the mosque responded by making the sermons again available to the public. The motive behind why the mosque decided to originally remove the two sermons, which were held before and shortly after congregation member and Islamist radical Alton Nolen allegedly brutally beheaded an innocent woman-- and then decided to again bring the links back on the website-- remains unknown. What Breitbart News uncovered through the two sermons was the closeness in the relationship between the mosque and the

A mosquito-borne virus that can cause debilitating joint pain lasting for years has spread to the continental U.S. after infecting hundreds of thousands of people in the Caribbean and Central America. The virus is called Chikungunya, an African name meaning “to become contorted.” While the illness, first identified in Tanzania in 1952, has long bedeviled Africa and Asia, the only recorded cases in the U.S. before July involved patients who contracted the virus abroad. Now, 11 cases have been confirmed as originating in Florida, spurring concern this may be the beginning of the type of explosive growth seen elsewhere from

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
