Hmm...yes...do you really think obama is stupid enouugh to let himself get photographed with either of them? Come on...all you libs talk about is how brilliant he is. And, while I don't for one minute think he is close to being as smart as you all think he is, he is definitely as sneaky and manipulative as they come. He knows he can't keep up his media-created image if he is public about his relationships. I'm sure the White House has plenty of back doors for obama's little snakes to slither through. But, we wouldn't want to ruin the delusion for you. Keep on blaming the right if it makes you feel better.

The interjection of the use of the word image by the OP has contributed to a broader discussion. However I will drop out and let it go to the STEP Aunt and STEP brother.

Its a damn shame Michemelley will have more time to hang out in the Oval office with her America hating scowl barking diatribes at our Islamic President

Her time would be better spent playing sucicide bomber video games with her children

The Obamas are not the first first family to have other than immediate family members living in the White House. Some of Reagan's grown kids lived there off and on as well, also Carter's.

There are precedents for this. As Katiana pointed out many presidents have had their adult children live in the White House. Other presidents have had their mothers-in-law reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Quote:
Mamie Eisenhower's mother, Elvira Doud, wintered there; Bess Truman's mom, Madge Wallace, moved in and relentlessly bullied poor Harry.
Washington Post
James Buchanan's niece also lived there and took on the duties of First Lady, as Buchanan was a bachelor.

So in the end, what's the big deal? I'd rather have a family member look after my small children instead of a nanny.

Obama's mother-in-law to live with family in White House : Updates : The Rocky Mountain News

From the Denver Rocky Mountain News. I think everyone should just calm down about this.

You're asking us? Ask the Obamas. Only they can give you the answer.
