"Bar Trash?", The GOP Continues To Act Shamefully

Daughters of President Obama appear to have reluctantly fulfilled a Thanksgiving Day role that was seriously grown trite and as tired as the GOP railing about fiscal conservatism.

....And they came under fire from GOP staff who has been in DC less than two years.  

Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), has obviously bought into the Fox New, Rush Limbaugh model of attacking the First Family on any and every opportunity.
Elizabeth Lauten
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. 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. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.
Later she went through the motions of what has been all too common: The Right-wing (caught with their pants around their ankles) apology. 

"I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager," she said. "After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no pace in my heart. Furthermore, I'd like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience."

Would the staffer have teenagers who appeared to only fulfill a role their father also seems less than excited to perform. Why should some southern belle twit assume she can literally executed the youngsters? She exercised the "white privilege" that has become all too familiar since the president was inaugurated in 2009.   

Lauten spoke of "bar trash." She also stated during her perfunctory remarks: " After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents....."

Many hours of prayer! If this woman was raised with any degree of respect for religion (as she feigns) her inner psyche would probably not have allowed the remarks. If she was raised are a higher level of respect for herself she would certainly not have "cast those stones" at the teenagers and the Obama's as a family.

It is virtually impossible to avoid the thought she was seeking praise and accolades from the likes of Fox News and friends. She thought she would be lauded and showered with conservative accolades without any regard for umbrage regarding the Obama young ladies. She may have had visions of a segment on the Sean Hannity Show or Megyn "White Santa; white Jesus" The Kelly File.  

Another, key question: "How does the Tennessee Twit know the intricacies and recognizable characteristics of  "bar trash?" 

Where was the Tennessee "slimmer" when this was manifest in America.

There is something about the Obama's the Right seems to find contemptible.  If I did not know better, I might think it is their residence and current station in life coupled with consideration of the family's racial and ethnic background.
