Remember what Barack Obama said about keeping his daughters out of the media eye?
The rules in the Obama household for Malia and Sasha are clear-cut:
_”No whining, arguing or annoying teasing,” their mother, Michelle Obama, told People Magazine.
_Make the bed. “Doesn’t have to look good, just throw the sheet over it,” said the mother of 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha.
_Set your own alarm clock. “They get themselves up, get their own clothes,” said their grandmother Marian Robinson.
_And the allowance from Dad for doing chores is $1 a week. Barack Obama conceded that “I’m out of town for weeks at a time, so Malia will say, ‘Hey you owe me for 10 weeks.'”…
…The Obamas rarely allow their daughters to be interviewed. After the television show “Access Hollywood” aired a report on the Obama children earlier this month, their father expressed regret for having agreed to it. “I don’t think it’s healthy and it’s something that we’ll be avoiding in the future,” he later said.
Add it to the flip-flop list.
