Obama Says Kids Won't Be Doing Any More Interviews

Don't expect to see more of Barack Obama's young daughters on television any time soon.

The Democratic presidential candidate and his wife, Michelle, allowed the cable show "Access Hollywood" to interview their daughters, Malia and Sasha, as Malia celebrated her 10th birthday. Segments of the interview began airing this week.

On Wednesday, Obama said he had second thoughts after seeing how much attention the interview had received.

Obama told ABC's "Good Morning America" that things got carried away a bit.

Obama said, in his words, "I don't think it's healthy and it's something we'll be avoiding in the future."

Before the "Access Hollywood" interview, the Obamas had kept Malia and 7-year-old Sasha out of the media spotlight.

    how dare that Obama and his tree hugging liberals! what flip floppers! everythign is fine under the buffoons of this administration isn't it. For the first time in our lives, it has come to reality that we are no longer the power house. Thanks bush and all your supporters. And you call yourself patriots! but your too ignorant to even fathom that maybe the other side of your ideology might actually have a point. Narcissism is dangerous and you rightious righters make that point valid everyday this country falters to your ignorant goombaah way.

    The DEMONcRATs control Congress and have for the last 2 years. About the same time gas prices started rising. Coincidence? I think not.

    Barack and Michele don't want their kids on T.V., but they didn't mind subjecting their kids to the anti-American racist rants of Wright, Moss, Farakan, and Pflleger ... every Sunday of their lives.

    The same way Bush thought out the long term consequences of the war? Or like how so many bought SUV's and never thought, hmmmmmm, what if gas prices rise? Or all the folks who bought homes with ARM?

    Gee, Seems like here's another thing Obama has done without thinking something all the way through.
