Was it right for a GOP aide to resign after her criticism of the Obama daughters?

On Capitol Hill, a Republican congressman’s aide resigned after she publicly criticized the behavior and dress of President Barack Obama’s daughters during a turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House. The Associated Press writes:

Elizabeth Lauten, communications director to Rep. Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, said Malia Obama, 16, and Sasha, 13, should have shown more “class” at a turkey-pardoning ceremony last week at the White House.

Lauten wrote that the girls should “respect the part you play,” and added: “Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the `good role model department.’ “

Lauten has since apologized.

Today’s Question: Was it right for a GOP aide to resign after her criticism of the Obama’s daughters?

  • Pearly

    Yep. Should have been fired if not IMO.

  • Sue de Nim

    Absolutely. That’s the kind of snide comment you’d expect to hear from internet trolls or hotheads on talk radio, not a spokesperson for an elected official.

  • One single thought should fill the days of president Obama in his last year at the White House: free Humankind from the Beast in Texas. From the Kennedy assassination up until 9/11 one hidden hand from Texas is ruling unchallenged all over this Country and the next presidential elections will extend its reach all over the World.

    Obama should demand as soon as possible a new and thorough investigation of 9/11.

    A World War has already been planned and with Jeb Bush, the next US president, this War will be inevitable and also come by surprise.


    All that is happening in our days is the prelude to enormous changes but even before discussing in regard of the possible remedy one must be clear about how we came to this point recognizing both physiognomy and origin of the threat.

    Since George H. Bush was CIA director, the US secret State agencies had played a double role to finally get to where we are today when every person is constantly monitored by NSA and other agencies not to report the information to the US Government but to feed with all data the embryo of a new superpower still kept hidden. In brief, here is how it came to possess all means and to know everything of everyone.

    In 1988 the ex CIA director was elected president although this was a US president like no other. His attention quickly turned to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from where he personally benefited immensely in exchange for the protection of those tyrants and their oil while in the United States instead the president observed his son, Neil, to be the author of the largest robbery of its time, the “Savings and Loans” scandal. After a few years, the next largest robbery in history was Enron that financed the electoral campaign for his other son, George. Once he also became president, the son plotted the most infamous attack on US soil, 9/11, to begin the widest monitoring program ever conceived and to consolidate for 8 years the interest of one family above all. The day before 9/11 the Bush administration announced missing 2.3 trillion dollars from the US State Department. It could not provide any explanation and was never again discussed following the events of 9/11. That is still today the largest robbery in history.

    In our days, a group of Zionists, like a hidden parallel government, with George Bush still today at the head of secret services in the US, UK and Israel, is the destabilizing force behind most terror events and with classified information at disposal and a private army is plotting what now would seem unthinkable to many. The spokesman for this group in the US Congress is John Mc Cain who reports the given orders weighing on the US administration. Incredibly, his picture taken with the chief of ISIS was recently discovered ….. but with no consequence for the Senator since he is the one in charge of the Intelligence Committee.

    Not the protests or violence in the streets could ever oppose such threat to the whole Humankind.

    There is one Solution.
    That begins with your disregard for the media and their pundits and most of all for their disingenuous misguidance of the public opinion calling the obvious evidence a “conspiracy theory”.

    For a few silvers and with their hypocrisy they put at risk the next generations.

    How could anyone still believe the story of Osama bin Laden?

      Went off your meds, huh? Might want to reconsider that….

      • Cliff Claven

        You know, Yanotha, it’s a little known fact that the symbol for Bush, in Aramaic, is 6. Therefore, with the election of a third Bush to the US presidency, we’d get the mark of the beast – Bush, Bush, Bush, or 666.

    You can’t be making fun of royalty like that!

    • Aren’t you just precious.

  • JeffWayne

    Ms Lauter did’t criticize the Obama daughters. Her intent was to humiliate them and by extension the President and First Lady. Her apology was to minimize further damage to herself, not a sincere apology to anyone. Her lack of respect for one of the institutions of our Democracy shows her absence of character and why she should leave public service permanently. And let’s keep her off any media outlet too!

      It’s a non-story compared to lots of things, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth talking about. Your link points to something about which there is no controversy (everyone agrees rape is bad) and which has been appropriately dealt with in the criminal justice system, which is why it’s not national news.
