Michelle Malia and Sasha Obama in China

The first lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha, 12, and Malia, 15, wrapped up their very expensive trip to China (taxpayers will foot the bill for Mrs. Obama's pricey $8,400 per night accommodations at the Westin hotel).

While Mrs. Obama seems to have charmed her way into the hearts of English speaking Chinese citizens, it is the sulky, petulant Sasha who is getting most of the attention from the national media.

Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey

The nation's Capital was buzzing after President Obama and his daughters, Malia and Sasha, returned to D.C. from their 2 week Hawaiian vacation without first lady Michelle Obama, who stayed behind in Hawaii with her bestie Oprah Winfrey.

The Obamas vacationed in Kailua, on the island of Oahu, before the president and his daughters departed the island. Heightened Secret Service activity near Oprah's 11-room, 17-acre estate in Kula, Maui indicated Mrs. Obama was visiting.

Reporters traveling with the Obamas couldn't confirm the visit, but a local told a newspaper Mrs. Obama was still in Hawaii.

President Obama's youngest daughter Sasha Obama, 12, sparked a buying frenzy on the ASOS website when she wore a ASOS unicorn sweater during a basketball game in Maryland on Sunday. The sweater sold out within minutes. And as of today (Friday) the item is still sold out.

Malia and Sasha Obama get Starbucks

President Barack Obama's daughters Malia Obama And Sasha Obama were seen heading to a Starbucks in the SoHo area of New York for ice coffee. On Friday, their father, the president, wrapped up a bus tour of New York to promote his program to lower college costs. The last time we saw Sasha Obama in SoHo, the 12-year-old was dressed in cut off shorts. But this time around, Sasha wore a virginal white dress. I expect to receive another email from the White House over these pictures. My mother is so proud that the White House cares so much about what I write.

MALIA OBAMA PHOTOBOMB

It was an awkward looking kiss to say the least. Maybe that's why President Obama's eldest daughter, Malia, 14, ruined a photo of him kissing First Lady Michelle Obama during the 57th Inauguration ceremonies in DC yesterday (Jan. 21). HuffPost Senior Social Media Editor Kerstin Shamberg took a screen shot of the cute scene while watching CNN. The Obama's youngest daughter Sasha, 11, attempted to take a photo of her parents' odd looking peck on the lips, when Malia ruined the shot by poking her head in front of the camera. Much could be said about that strange peck from a body language standpoint, but I won't go there this morning.

  • In the past, Barack Obama's absence from the White House has helped raise his approval ratings slightly. But his latest extended vacation hasn't helped his approval ratings at all. The way things are going, his next vacation, which begins on Wednesday and ends on Monday, won't do much to lift his ratings out of the cellar either. Maybe it would help if Obama extended his vacation through September?

    From Hot Air blog:

    If Barack Obama hoped to gain some breathing room with his vacation, or perhaps even pick up some sympathetic vibe for eulogizing Ted Kennedy on Friday, Rasmussen’s latest poll shows that nothing has changed in the direction of his approval ratings. With one of the three days in Rasmussen’s presidential tracking poll after the wake, Obama has hit his highest level of strong disapproval yet, at 42%. The “passion index” has now hit -10 — not the worst of his term thus far, but certainly not good.

    The Obama's continued their vacation today as Vice President Joe Biden represented Obama at the funeral of Eunice Kennedy Shriver in Hyannis, MA. Obama will hold another fake town hall meeting on health insurance reform with a bussed-in, pre-screened audience before flying off to visit Yellowstone National Park on Saturday and the Grand Canyon on Sunday.

    Michelle Obama and her husband Barack were named to Vanity Fair's “2009 International Best-Dressed List” released yesterday. We can certainly see why based on these pictures of Michelle and Malia Ann, 12, doing lunch at the Good Stuff eatery in D.C. today. In fact the entire family are fashion plates, if you ask me. But I'm no expert on fashion so you'd better not ask me.

    Last night I spent the better part of an hour scouring blogs and news gathering websites for images of Barack Hussein Obama consuming beer at the so-called "beer summit" yesterday. Needless to say, I couldn't find any. Oh, there were plenty of pics of Obama leaning back in his lawn chair (supposedly after a hard day's work) nursing a mug of Bud Light sitting on the table in front of him. But no pics of him actually downing a cold one.

    That's odd... Was Sergeant James Crowley the only one captured on film hoisting a mug of suds to his lips during the "beer summit"? Was that the intended outcome -- to get images of the cop drinking beer, but not the president, the vice president Joe Biden, or the race baiting Harvard professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr. whose loose lips sparked a firestorm of race debates in this country?

    Maybe Obama's handlers didn't want to see any more images like this one. Maybe they reminded O that it isn't cool or presidential to be photographed in public sipping brew. Not when teenagers are still drinking and driving and killing themselves at alarming rates. Best to do all his swigging behind closed doors like George Bush did.

    I received a few requests from readers requesting the identity of the "thug" photographed walking with First Daughter Malia Obama in a post I wrote yesterday.

    Thanks to loyal reader Patricia for coming through with the young man's identity. It turns out he is Michelle Obama's hair dresser, Johnny Wright. My readers are so informative:

    Hi Sandra!

    Hope all is well with ya! I’m writing from Chicago. The “thug” that these fools are referring to is the First Lady’s hairstylist, Johnny Wright. How dare they call him a thug!! He is a very good friend of mine. Click on the link beneath your article below. I added another picture of him too. I'm surprise YOU didn't catch this!!
