For the rest of this week members of the press corps will be scavenging Martha's Vineyard like starving bears, hoping to snarf some exclusive crumbs from President Obama's clam roll. But POTUS has laid down this one law, which is apparently more important than anything else, even overhauling government death panels: Do not stalk the First Daughters for a picture…
Aside from wishing a good time for all, in fact, the president had one clear message yesterday for reporters, said Bill Burton, the deputy White House press secretary: "The first family would very much appreciate if you respect the privacy of the girls while they’re out here on vacation."
That was before Burton even got to the matters of whether the president would be conferring with advisers while on vacation (yes, some) or how he felt about the recent elections in Afghanistan (looking forward to hearing the results along with everybody else).
Thank you very much, Nobama, for destroying the livelihoods of these poor hardworking paparazzi who depend on your family for income.
