No Photos of Michelle Obama

When First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters went to lunch last week at a DC restaurant, her secret service guards first confiscated all the patrons’ cell phones so they couldn’t take pictures.

This doesn’t seem right. Is that normal protocol for our president and his family? And is this a security or vanity concern? Either way, it doesn’t seem to have merit and reflects badly on the first family.

    Or is it simply a way for them to have some level of personal privacy?

    Obama and Michelle – agree w/you.
    The kids – give them some room to grow up.

    It’s probably best not to take New York Post articles on face value. This video clearly shows people on the patio taking photos, and, you know, was itself taken during that trip.

    that point has been made been many times — that photos of her exist, but only leaving the burger joint. not inside it

    we’re talking about the patrons that were inside the restaurant. their cameras were illegally confiscated, violating the 4th Amendment

    where are the photos of michelle inside the burger joint???


    personal privacy?

    maybe obama should’ve thought about that before running for president.

    maybe michelle should have had the burgers delivered rather than venturing out into public where there are surveillance cameras in every store and on almost every corner watching us these days. however, let’s turn them off when michelle and the children come prancing by.

    if there was a security system at this restaurant, i wonder if the surveillance footage was destroyed too?

    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like
    yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally,
    if all website owners and bloggers made just right content
    as you probably did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
