Barack Obama Doesn't Like His Daughters Watching the Kardashians, Says Michelle

We live in a Kardashian nation, but President Barack Obama isn't exactly a fan of reality TV's royal family!
First Lady Michelle Obama tells iVillage that her hubby, 50, doesn't like Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, keeping up with Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian's antics on the boob tube.

Michelle, 47, says that like most parents, she and Barack regulate how much TV their daughters watch and what they're allowed to see. "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much," she told iVillage. "But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in -- what did you learn when you watched that," Michelle explained. "And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."



While the Kardashian family is known for their big spending (Kim purchased a $325,000 Ferrari earlier this month), their upbringing wasn't entirely different from Sasha and Malia's.

Michelle tells iVillage she doesn't want her girls raised as "little princesses."

"They have to make their own beds, to clean up their rooms," she says. "Sasha has started doing the laundry. Malia was supposed to be doing it but [Sasha] is really into laundry."
Khloe, 27, told Babycenter last month about her "Cinderella" upbringing. "When I turned twelve, my mom's housekeeper was not allowed to enter my room," she said. Kris Jenner told her at the time: "You're twelve now. You do all your own laundry. You make your bed."

Khloe said when Kendall and Kylie Jenner were born, "I had to do all the dishes and I cooked for them. But honestly now, I'm a great cook and I'm OCD clean and I like that my parents did that."

Obama has a strict thin line when it comes to people who make millions for nothing, and those who make nothing for millions.

He doesn't allow his daughters to watch shows like these because as a parent, he fondly believes that these shows throw to the public a wrong image of how to reach financial success, especially to young audiences. Recalling correctly several statements he mentioned in a rally, he encouraged young students to reach the riches only through education and hard work in a solid career that contributes something meaningful to society; while rejecting or putting down the success that Lil Wayne, the Kardashians, or any other popular icon has had with "minimum" effort, and thereby not contributing anything meaningful to society.

Therefore, the thin line refers to what he has established against people who earn too much for easy work and in favor of those who earn too little for hard work; which he's right to some extent, Kim Kardashian really doesn't deserve that much credit and wealth for the "work" that she does of just becoming famous by leaking a porn video showing her fat ass. And on the other side, Obama supports those who are making good things, like going to school, getting a career, and contributing with real work and possibly achieving success after some long time, let's say a scientist researching the cure for AIDS or Parkinson's, or an economist trying to save the US or Europe's piggy bank.

As a president and formal public figure, he must have this view of supporting the good and traditional way of doing things while being blinded from the other smart way of beating that system. Obama only has a net worth of $2 million, mostly derived from his book sales, and the Kardashians earn a staggering average of about $70 million per year. In my opinion, he shouldn't have anything against her daughters watching the show because it shows a smart way of not being normal and beating the capitalistic system of doing business and achieving riches in a fashionable way once they get to thoroughly understand this bittersweet reality.

Anybody else confused by this last part?

Maybe that he should want Sasha and Malia to be like the Kardashians instead of like people on Wall Street? I don't know, the wording confused me.

Just came over the news that U.S. troops are to pull out of Iraq by the end of the year.

Don't know where else to put this, so...

Don't know who I heard this from, but someone said Obama's using all of his October surprises in the wrong October.

I think obama has been an excellent foreign policy president... but ultimately he will be sunk by the economy. The parallels between him and Bush the first are striking.
