During the same vacation, nobody on Team Obama seemed to mind that the president was spotted golfing a few minutes after a statement about the beheading of a U.S. journalist, but somebody was worried about the optics of this?

Vocativ was on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to film a piece about the African-American community on the island. While we were shooting on Beach Road, one of the busiest thoroughfares on the Vineyard, the Secret Service approached and asked us to switch off our camera for 15 minutes.

A moment later, first lady Michelle Obama power walked by our crew. She was out for some exercise with a small group—and a serious security detail. It was 9:30 in the morning.

Our producer and cameraman were surrounded by Secret Service agents and very strongly advised to stop filming. At one point, Mrs. Obama looked in their direction and said, “Don’t do that.” It’s unclear if she was telling the agents to leave us alone, or scolding us for filming on public property.

More of the story here.

Weird how the Secret Service person seemed surprised somebody was trying to record that, but if it’s really a problem, hasn’t FLOTUS ever heard of a treadmill?

    It's impossible for first lady to be private.

    "The first lady is a leading advocate for getting kids to be more active. She practices what she preaches". ( para )

    Yeah, I'm sure the whole ( rather adult ) concept of "power walking" complete w/ entourage of brown nosers is instantly relateable to 7 year olds. The bigger point for Dim supporters that voted for these azzclowns would be: When was the last time moms working 2 ( part-time ) jobs since they lost their FT career had TIME for a power walk?

    On Martha's Vineyard?

    Then that nasty First Amendment comes into play. The government censoring the press? Where's the outrage from the Fourth Estate?

    ChapBix,

    Poster over at Townhall noted ( re: the publicly-funded National Science Foundation's ) enactment of the Twitter Police, that some time back Obama tried to install Federal employees into news rooms across the nation.

    When that FAILED ( we get the Twitter Popo ) All of which amount to attacks on the 1st! ( Ostensibly to do away w/ the 2nd? ) This is a CLEAR sign Progressives are losing the war on Twitter! Thanks in no small part to Mrs. Malkin.

    So… in an effort to "level the playing field" they'll instead opt to "make conservative's every word, TOXIC!" on the Twittersphere. You just KNOW they'll be there an in instant every time some doochebag tries to make ethnic/sexual slurs toward MM and other conservative women!

    Ahem, on the topic of MM's You've Got Hatemail.., there's simply too much of it for it to be a coincidence! She's not even on TV any more and the Hate Tweets are coming from Zimbabwe or other obscure locale/individual.

    These HAVE to be "straw accounts" set up by the Democrat Media Complex. There won't even BE an exchange or topic other than say one of local interest and OUT come the hate tweets! No Hipster is that bored or even adept to effect these…

    No doubt about it. I am sure they are coming from the 19.5 million fake twitter followers of dear leader:

    That reminds me of this working mom's open letter to Gwyenth Paltrow.

    Great link. Those guys always NAIL it. Their methods of determining 'fake accounts' is probably more precise than swing state voter rolls?

    Even Twitter's OWN CEO admits it's an easy number to fabricate/manipulate. With over HALF of der' leader's "followers" more fake than Dolly Parton's..? How hard is it to manufacture Random Hipster Dude ( that shows no history of OTHER tweets ) to bring the racist quickie out of the blue?

    Hipsters and [most] 20-somethings are far too lazy and horrified of harshing their buzz to BOTHER.
