WASHINGTON – Did a Republican party staffer go too far in blasting President Barack Obama’s daughters for how they dressed and for saying they lack class?

A female staffer for Tennessee Republican Congressman Stephen Fincher had some choice words for the President’s daughters after apparently taking offense to their choice of clothing and demeanor at a turkey pardoning event held last week in the White House.

“Dear Sasha and Malia: I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play,” said communications director Elizabeth Lauten.

“Then again, your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter. So I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department.”

Lauren told the two teens to “rise to the occasion and act like being in the White House matters to you”.

In the wake of the pointed remarks, calls for Lauten to be fired have risen.  She later apologized and said she would not want to have been judged as a teen in the way she judged the two young ladies.

Were Lauten’s remarks over the line, or acceptable?  Should she be fired?

This staffer has already resigned, as she should have.

I heard she is resigning to take a position with Hilary, because after all, what difference does it make.

The Republicans foment this kind of speak amongst their base, so I doubt anything will happen to her, but yeah if the Congressman she works for had any class or decency he should fire her. They are teenagers for craps sake. What a despicable cheap shot by this hag of a woman. And I happen to think they dress cool…so piss the hell off lady.

What is the truth? Did you make comments like this when the Bush girls got picked up for underage drinking?

That didn’t stop people like you from attacking them did it. They are in the public eye and should act like it.They don’t even look like sister’s. maybe the rumors are true about Malcom X.

LVS, a style of dress is a personal choice…being arrested for underage drinking is a criminal issue. You’ve got a lot of nerve defending this hag woman. Sasha and Maleesha have the right to be whomever in the hell they want to be. I wish they’d get piercings and dress MORE alternative just to shut this stuffy old bag up for good. We are in the modern times now buddy.

You are a clueless, classless and mean-spirited old man.

Something tells me that deep inside you wish black people in general would be hidden away where “decent” white folk wouldn’t have to look at them. I think the dark tint of their skin and lips offends you.

But what really eats at you LVS is that this black family is in the most powerful position in the world. They get to occupy the White House. Ha ha. Pisses you off.

Adults shouldn’t use social media to make fun of teenagers. This was over the line and she should step down. Her apology wasn’t really an apology.

A little harsh but there is some truth to the remarks. Put a smile on your face and go along with the show.
