“I love my kids.” “You’re SUPPOSED to love your kids.” My apologies to Chris Rock

I can just see it now:

SASHA OBAMA: Hi, Prime Minister of China.

BARACK OBAMA: Daddy’s working right now, honey.

SASHA: I want a bowl of ice cream.

BARACK: Honey, Daddy needs to have grown-up talk with the Prime Minister.

SASHA: Do you like rice, Mr. Prime Minister? Have you ever been to P.F. Changs?

You have a family, we get it! And your daughter can be as cute and precocious as Rudy Huxtable — How adorable and unthreatening and just like the rest of us. My favorite part of the whole evening was when Michelle Obama said to her husband, “That’s Sasha,” like she was introducing him to a child that had arrived from Central Casting to play their daughter while he was in St. Louis or Kansas City or wherever he was.

I’m not saying his children were misbehaved or acting in a way that I wouldn’t expect children their age to act. They don’t seem to need ritalin, or tough love or anything. It was just a stark contrast to the indellible image of JFK’s kids on the tarmac that we have all seen. And hey, I like to pick the most trivial things I can, and try to make them uber-important. It’s what I do.

  1. I recently puserahcd the President Obama First Family 2010 Wall Calendar. Totally happy with the outcome our these calendars. Top quality, high-gloss pictures. Great photos. All of the photo are picture perfect for framing purposes. Each month has captured our 44th president family in very striking poses!! Great buy, great investment. An additional calendar to use as Christmas favors, frame each month’s photo and give to all family member friends. Guaranteed to be a hit. The Michelle Obama’s calendar is just as striking!! So proud of our First Lady!! The calendars makes me so proud the photos in both calendar are really, really nice!!
