From Bahamas To Sun Valley, Idaho Two Spring Break Vacations For Obama Girls UPDATE: White House Tell Station To Remove Story

UPDATE - 9:50 It's not just the Obama daughters livin it up, White House Dossier, via Gateway Pundit says Joe Biden is vacationing on "South Carolina’s luxurious Kiawah Island" most likely for a golf outing. It is his third vacation this year.

UPDATE - 6:33 When I added the video earlier from the Weekly Standard, it attached with no problem, however, the story from KMVT's website disappeared. confims that the White House asked the station remove the story...

UPDATE: The White House has confirmed the report was removed on their request.  
From Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady:
From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.

Give me a bleeping break. It's one thing to follow the Obama daughters around Washington DC and report on their every move. That is wrong and should not happen to any underage daughter of the President. 

But it's another story indeed when we are told that the White House tours have to be cancelled because the Secret Service had to make cuts in their budget, and the agents (on our dime) not only travel with them to ritzy locations for a Spring Break vacation, but act as their adult chaperones.

How many average Americans send their children off unsupervised on just ONE vacation?

This is a story, and the Regime is bullying people who are reporting it because they are afraid of the blowback.  This is not the same as the White House asking a story not be covered for purposes of national security or anything like that. The Thin-Skinned Obama's don't want to be made to look bad.

Are you outraged yet?  And don't let liberal idiots tell you "but, but, BOOOOOOOOOSH!" when you complain about it.


As I said the other day, when news broke that Richard Milhous Obama's daughters were vacationing at the luxurious Atlantis resorting in the Bahamas, "What Sequester?"

Now, they've left the sun-drenched Atlantic paradise and are hitting the snow-covered slopes of Sun Valley, Idaho (Weekly Standard).

"Sun Valley is known to be a getaway for celebrities and the First Family is no different," reports KMVT.

"In an exclusive photo obtained by Idaho's First News, you can see the First Daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama skiing at River Run Thursday. The Sun Valley Ski Patrol confirms the girls were enjoying the wonders of the mountain. We also received unconfirmed reports the daughters were staying at Thunder Spring in Sun Valley."
Earlier, it was reported that the Obama daughters were at a resort in the Bahamas for Spring Break.
Both reports could be true: The Obama daughters could have spent the first half of the week in the Bahamas, before leaving the sun for the Idaho snow.
Meanwhile, the White House remains closed to the public, as the Secret Service is said to lack the funds necessary to keep the building open to all.

I mean, this is total arrogance. We're supposed to be suffering because of the sequester, at least everyone except the President.

While we're picking up the tab for their extravagance.

This is obviously a danger sign. Since when does the press drop a story at the request of any politician?

We need to step up the effort to let Americans know so-called news is really propaganda.
