In an ABC News Nightline Special with Barbara Walters, Barack and Michelle Obama were interviewed and the special aired on December 26. During the interview the subject changed to the Obama's daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11. Discussion of cell phones and dating came up following talks of how the Obamas keep romance alive in their marriage. In recent days Obama has called for more gun control legislation for the people of America. However, during the interview he joked that one of the reasons he ran for re-election was "continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times."
Here was how the interview went:
Walters: I want to talk about the girls. we have been watching them grow up from little girls to young ladies. now, Malia recently got her first cell phone. do you want to see who she calls and who she texts?
Michelle Obama: I give my daughter at this age -- I give her a long rope. and there is monitoring because we have rules. But monitoring may be -- you never know when I'm going to walk in your room and I'm going to definitely ask you, who are you talking to and are you talking about school work? But...
Barack Obama: And they're not very good at lying. We joke sometimes about how Malia's getting to the age now, and boys start calling and, you know, sort of, I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times...
Notice in the preview that ABC intentionally edited out the portion about the "men with guns around at all times." Though this interview seems to be lighthearted and innocent, I would say this is a look into how people like Barack Obama distinguish themselves from the rest of us. He wants men with guns, even fully automatic weapons, providing him and his family protection.
Obama desires to send his children to a public school, Sidwell Friend School in Washington D.C., where there are 11 security officers and seeking to hire more. These officers are not there especially for the Obama children, but this is standard operation procedure at the school.
It seems that Mr. Obama is a "do as I say, not do as I do" kind of guy.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
