Turns out the Secret Service doesn’t just protect the Obamas, they also are the root of a bit of tension between the younger members of the first family.
That’s according to first lady Michelle Obama who, during a tour of the U.S. Secret Service headquarters Wednesday, joked her daughters will often fight over which agents are assigned to cover them for the day.
"’You took Scott... That's not fair,’" the first lady told secret service members, reciting how a typical conversation unfolds between her two daughters, Sasha and Malia. Mrs. Obama added the matter had become regular topic of "dinner table conversation."
The first lady addressed more than 200 employees of the service, praising the agency charged with protecting their lives as an organization that “is always 100 percent on point."
The comments followed a tour of the facility, where the first lady joked she learned more about how her security works than she may have liked.
"The work you do here is pretty scary," Mrs. Obama also said to laughter, according to a pool report of the event. "Let's just say that. All I can say is after my little tour...ignorance is bliss. I just don't want to know. You all can handle all that. Just tell me where to run."
Just please keep them safe. All of them.
Yet bet they will to the hilt from the RACIST tinny Tea Baggars and their impotent pea size brain republican neo-cons.
When barack got elected, his administration had to invent a cause for michelle.
So, they shamelessly decided to use children to provide michelle with a wholesome image.
For 3 years we have been bombarded with fabricated photo ops, and manufactured P.R. to
sell michelle to the American public ... and, after thousands of hours, and millions of dollars spent, the American people can still see through this transparent charade. The obama's are shameless self-serving cons, the mainstream media are their shills, and the American people are their marks.
Explain how they are racist.
I would recommend 500mg of thorizine , 3-4 times a day . You are a certifiable nut-job .
Unfortunately racism does exist. Yet what you fail to realize is not every GOP/tea party member is guilty of racism and not every member of the Dem/Lib party is innocent either! There are morons in BOTH parties!
Tea baggers are not guilty of being racist as much s having bad timing. Where were they when Reagan (god) jacked up the defecit..and Bush and Clinton and LBJ and Nixon and Carter? They are onloy doing what Faux News is telling them to do.

So :teabaggers" are not guilty of being racist"? Does your party know this? You DO realize the tea party did not exist during Reagan, right? Secondly, Do you watch Fox News? If not, exactly how do you know what they may or may not be telling anyone?
Ahh so much stupidity. The funny part is, each of you thinks you're "right". LOL.
Thanks for injecting a hate-filled partisan comment into an article that is inherently non-partisan.
You mean the Tea Party? The party that fully supports an African American for president? You communists are just going to have to get some updated material on the Tea Party. That racism rumor was dispelled years ago.
The First Date just gave away the name of one of her protectors, 'Scott.' Now that was a smart move. Actually I find this story kind of creepy. She thinks it's cute that her daughters are attracted to the Secret Service men. Sounds like sexual harassment. Think of it, how can they complain. The daughters are in control of their carers.
They're TEN and THIRTEEN! And you see something sexual in this story???
The fact that you see something sexual in a child's innocent fondness for their carer, says something pretty dark about your character (and possibly your activites)
If I had your address, I'd report you to the authorties.
you are sick
Just as rf924, and a few others, you, Jay in NC, are really despicable! One can only be appalled at what you say and write! You should be so ashamed of yourself!
Normal racist comments.
You, sir, are a moron.
What is a "carers"? Is that something in the trailer park?
Jay, go back and read the article. First Lady Obama said it was a TYPICAL conversation. There are gazillions of people worldwide named "Scott", for pete's sake.
Grow UP and get a life.
Che-3.......you are so correct "we now know how each thinks about shearing "........Here I did not know that the Obama
kids sheare sheep! you are so intelligent!!!! Oh I know you communist know proper laungauge use ,it is very important when you are trying to sound intelligent....ooops...BHO is done in 15 more months :)
It is great that our First Lady can be human with the people that protect them and those who support them.
Too bad those that don't support our President – GOPtee-baggers – will surely try to turn this into something ugly – something as ugly as their hearts.
I have nothing against the Obama's...I'm sure they are nice people. As for the job Barack is doing as President...
I'm a liberal, but I like your attitude. Let's agree to disagree.
I like your attitude too. I am an Obama support, and I don't mind people saying that he suck at his job. It is the personal attacks that get me. I hope Democrats, such as my self, don't make personal attacks against the next Republican President. We're all Americans at the end of the day.
@Dean...what about the people who will not let him do his job you want him to do.....think about that....no compromise.... no 50/50.....just plain NO NO NO mean while the county is suffering and Congress can care less because they currently have a job and health benifits
Thank you. She failed to realize America Al-Qaeda are the RACIST, impotent pea size brain republican neo-cons. It's amazing how some Americans are intellectually still backward.
Che-3, I would like to meet you in person. I'm curious how someone like you looks and behaves in public.
Ms. Obama is truly a class act. Coming from a man who did not vote for her husband, I sure am proud she's my First Lady!
Mrs. Obama... she is married... I am disappointed that you actually vote. You obviously could use less time criticizing people and brushing up on your grammar skills... Just a thought
@Kiralw, he's not criticizing anyone...he's giving her a compliment... I am disappointed in the fact that you might be a voter as well. You obviously could use less time criticizing people's grammar, and more time brushing up on your reading comprehension skills. Just a thought.
Really? Ms. is fine- could be married or single.
Ms is not the same as Miss. Miss means unmarried. Ms is unspecified. His grammar skills are fine. Yours aren't.
"haha...hahaha...oh, how precious!" THIS IS NOT NEWS! C N N is pulling out all the stops to find SOMETHING good to report about Obama. And this is the best they can do.
Dummy, its news!
You used to crave for news about how imbecile George Bush silly dog thinks about bush tax cuts for the silly greedy rich. Or your daily worship of some empty hair head with pig lipstick. At least with these two intelligent girls; we now know how each thinks about shearing and fairness in life and to each other. Make sense to ya? Seek some education for you're a real disgrace to your parents and to America’s education of intellectual reasoning. When a little girl asked his father each morning this basic question; Dad, have you plugged the whole yet? It tells you of her concern as child for her fellow man and care for others facing hardships in life than her own. Shame on you. Pick on people of your impotent size and not on innocent little children testing the theory of fairness and the practice of it.
Aren't you an angry and bitter small kind of person there, Che-3?! WOWEE!! Hey, speaking of people needing an education? I believe that you might want to consider that notion yourself! Yikes!
The best way to fight back against the far right extremists who have taken over the GOP is to vote against them. Vote for Obama in 2012 and vote against all of those newly elected tea party morons in congress who tried to hold the debt ceiling hostage so they could get their way. ANYONE who would behave that irresponsibly in congress has no business being in congress.
Far right extremists? Since when is wanting lower taxes, personal responsibility, and smaller government as was intended by the framers of our constitution extremist? Get a clue. Get off CNN every once in a while and do some thinking for yourself. You might learn something. Or not. It guess it's easier to be told what to think rather than trying to do it yourself.
Hahaha! You are so funny. Someone on the right telling someone on the left to think for themselves, and stop being told what to say. That's classic!
What a great lady! I love hearing about her and the girls. I believe Barack Obama is doing wonderful in spite of the NO No group. We are recognized around the world with more favor than under the past president and he has accomplished much more without declaring himself a "winner." I will vote for him again and othe democrats to help him. In case you wonder, I am older, work hard at a good job, pay taxes, and I do not seek more services for myself but for those less fortunate.
Thank you Betty! Couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, the comments sections have been taken over by mentally disturbed people who only want to say mean and hateful things. These people don't have an opinion; they get a high from any kind of response to their inane drivel. Its best to ignore them completely and maybe they will go away and leave room for folks who really have something to say.
Only another fifteen months, Michelle, then you can go home to Chicago and start organising communities again, or whatever.
In your retarded, delusional, toothless, trailer park racist dreams. You get the drift?
The youth will dictate the course of America and not the retarded racist tinny pea brain like ya. Sit you stinky ASS down for Heavens sake.
The fact that you have to use first-grade level pejoratives to respond to some one reflects your total lack of class.
A true and unmistaken sign of ignorance is an inability to communicate without resorting to such drivel.
And, oh, by the way, the Obama will be returning to Chicago in 2013.
Here comes Henry! Die-hard GOP/TP! No ideas, No class, No solutions, No concerns for their fellow Americans – but first and all about “Unshackled” spreading of dump comments and sound-bites …
Michelle....I appreciate you and your family...sometimes, OFTEN, I think you guys are the only sanity there is in Washington...Be in Peace!!
Did you notice, Michele darlin', that the SS does not pay that much attention to YOU – with a wooden head and about 1.5 INCHES OF SWEATY MAKE-UP daubed on, MAYBE THEY WORK HARD to keep you IGNORED!!
Tom in the Great NW, looks like you're describing your ugly mother to the World at large. We get it. You mama is really ugly. Now sit your sorry ASS down. Will ya! Whew some idiot!
Could you repeat that in English? I have a hard time understanding Gibberish.
How anyone can attack such a classy First Lady as Michelle Obama is very hard to understand! Would be interesting to know what his idea of a woman is he would like. One, that does not scream when he comes home drunk and abuses her?
Michelle Obama is classy?!?! HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh my, that’s hilarious Marry! She will never know that word or can never be described that way! Most of her outfits and “get-ups” she wears are hideous!! Her clothing choices she allows herself to be photographed in are just mind-boggling, yowza! The definition of a classy First Lady, from the way she dressed, behaved, things she did for our country, ect would be: Laura Bush. Just to name one of course, there are a few others before her. But NEVER can Michelle Obama be described as a “classy” woman or First Lady either. What a real knee slapper!! LOL
Another racist rant by a very small mind.
Keep up the good work, Michele.
Tom- I get the sense that your projecting your wife's image on our first lady.....which Hee Haw bar is your wife wrestling at tonight?
How dumb. Do you mean "you're"? I've noticed the truly low-class comments generally come from people who
use "your" when they mean "you're."
Is it proper etiquette to comment on another person's grammar? Or, is it your feeble attempt to put another person down because of their political difference?
I have never heard of a First Lady visiting and touring the offices of the Secret Service before. I think that's great! She is showing an interest in what the folks who keep her and her family, as well as the V.P. and his family, safe.
I really like and respect all the Obamas!
Gloria; she is just paying respect to those who will put their living souls on line above their own to protect them even though they're not related by blood or anything. At least she's thankful unlike the last one. May God protect the families of those who protect this hated president and his family as well.
I meant to say "...an interest in what the folks who keep her and her family, as well as the V.P. and his family, do to keep them safe.
This is worth the time to print it????
Yet you took several moments of your "precious" life to READ the story, AND COMMENT on it.
Racist dummy, it took you time to read it?
What were you looking for or to read?
Silly, imbecilic, sarah palin talking about red lip stick on a filthy trailer park pig? Looks like your IQ is the same shoe size of a trailer park roach.
Michelle Obama is a class act what a smart lady Mr. President have a lovely black women by his side. Much Love to the Obama Family.
OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 You got my vote.
They've got my vote too, and probably my wife's!
I think it's funny that the girls are fighting over the Secret Sevice staff who are assigned to them. I bet those Secret Service guys and gals are getting quite a blushed chuckle out of this story. I'm also glad the girls are just being girls in their own cute, sweet way. The Obama's are A+ parents and should be the yard stick which all parents–and marriages for that matter, should be measured.
May you continue to be blessed and safe, first family–for another 5 years!
"quite a blushed chuckle out of this story" Are you serious. This is their job, they are professionals. I doubt seriously that a grown man would blush over the attention of a 10 or 13 year old girl. The First Date is sick for encouraging her daughters to harass these people.
Read the story again. The agency explained to her "how her security works." Obviously they see the problems and are trying to inform The First Date to get her children to act appropriately. Hope she gets the message.
Quite the active imagination there, Jay. Nothing you commented on was in the story. typical of the conservative right. Just make it up as you go!
Somebody tell the beastly Mrs. O thanks alot for spending half a million taxpayer dollars to take the family on a vacation to Africa and listing the daughters as "senior staff" for the trip. What a despicable pair the two of them are.
Yes ... except that never happened. That's just one of the many false stories going around about the president and first family. Someone makes something up, someone repeats it, and soon some misinformed person is reporting it as "fact". Please check out Factcheck.org, and this page: http://www.factcheck.org/2011/07/the-traveling-president/
Thank you, Kris. Factcheck is a good reference point for some of these people (racists, ranters, rightwingnuts, republicans, etc.) They are not used to looking at facts. Facts scare them.
The fact that she called the name of one of her protectors scares you huh? Now really? I doubt it; You know you don't care; but don't worry...it's just like had she mentioned one who's name was Jay. LOL! Is it the first or last name? How does Jay look? Short or tall, thick or thin, black, white or other? Stop the beligerent drama Jay! And OMG! 'Sexual harrassment'? You know you ought to be ashamed, but as usual, Cons can't be shamed out! Whew! They just keep going and going and going! I think it's cute too.
@NVa Native; yeah...like Jay in NC and those fools Tom in th Great NW and rf924. They have the ugly hearts minds and souls. They are pathetic!
Damn security, you scary!
Its sad that a leader needs protection now. I remember when I could walk into the white house as a tourist. I even saw the prez. :D
How interesting that so many of the comments seem to have personal insights into the values of the Obama girls. How would any of you know what they are thinking?
It is the families actions not their values. Anyone with a teenage daughter, or that works with young people, can see what is going on. The girls are infatuated with a guy, this is normal, however The First Date thinks it cute. From the agents point of view it is harassment. If they complain they will lose their job. The family needs to understand that these guys are working hard to protect them, not entertainment, and certainly not to be harassed.
Mammy . (see photo )
Ah! Now there's a well-reasoned, fact-based response for you. Thanks for clarifying the situation.
lot of really stupid comments on a very nice human interest type story. Once again our repo friends have done themselves proud. .Jay and Henry are such good examples of wht not to vote for any repo clowns. The party attracts morons,sleeze bags and racists. .
Laura Bush is your 'classy' first lady? Your a fifteen year old with no sense of political direction!
If I had to choose which first lady was absolutely the greatest, it would be Eleanor Roosevelt. Please grow up and realize the Bush administration is NOT what we want to symbolize America. It was a major and moronic mistake. Recall that the 2007 slump and 2008 crash was under Bush's lead NOT Obama's. -_- The immense concentration of teabaggers with internet connection makes me sad
Your dirt drive singlewide village called... they want their racist tea-idiot back. I told them you would be along as soon as you could remove your undersized cranium from your oversized azz and brush your tooth
Jeez, just think back to Nancy Reagan and her attitude toward "The help." When she was first shown the Lincoln Room in the White House, she said, "That wall has to go." When her guide explained that the room had great historical significance, she said, "I want that man fired." Imagine her actually thanking the Secret Service for their great work?
Your remark about FIRST LADY Michelle Obama is uncalled-for. I suggest that you sign up for a pre-school course in manners, and THEN come back and post online, if mommy unlocks the computer for you. Mrs. Obama is very classy, is raising two lovely daughters with MANNERS, unlike the bush brats who followed dumbya's footsteps.
Let me get this right. In one breath you call for manners and in another you attack the Bush girls? Did I get that right? Smells like hypocrisy to me!
Some people just need SOMETHING to complain about. That the girls are arguing over who is watching them should be a testament to the job the SS is doing, but some here refuse to look at it that way. And those who would suggest that FLOTUS was there so the SS could tell her to keep her 'brats' in place, would there be a presser after that? That sounds like something BOTH parents would need to attend. But I doubt they would give the Obamas credit for being good parents, let alone good at ANY of their jobs. Seems more like some on this post have already made up their minds about anything this administration does, and they have also shut down their minds to thinking. Not every GOTea is racist, much like not every GOTea has the best interests of the people of this country in their best interest.
Get over it. Find something else to complain about. It shouldn't be to hard. Throw a rock in any direction, I'm sure you'll hit on something...
Tea party not racist? Look up the Tea party rabbi from Los Angeles who went early this year to London to speak to a group of British Neo-Nazis in support of their stance against buliding mosques in London. When challenged by a English scholar who also happened to be Jewish... he could not see the absurdity of his gesture. He said he agreed to disagree with the Neos N´s. May be not racist but even more dangerous: stupid, wacked and amoral.
What is it with the right wing lunatics? After all, the rest of us had to put up with that ignorant dumb alcoholic jerk George W Bush for a president for eight years with his goof ball wife. They had no class at all. It is a wonder they didn't put a pick up truck on concrete blocks in front of the White House to remind them of Texas. Embrace the Obama's. They are a very nice family and are many steps above the Bushies.
What is it with the right wing lunatics?
The answer is. The same thing that is wrong with the left wing lunatics! The "my way of the highway mentality"! President Bush did admit to an alcohol problem earlier in his llfe. President Obama admitted to "doing a little blow" earlier in his life. I can't wait to see your outrage on that! Me, I kinda look at it this way, everybody messes up so I'll not attack personally. That's just me!
@Howard, man i believe hatred runs in you and seriously your choice of words is just unfortunate for an educated man like you. Why you hate this family this much is unimaginable. Goodluck though
@ Jay, are you for real?
The secret service agents should sue for sexual harassment. Creating a hostile work environment
Good story. It's nice to hear news that isn't fear-driven. Unfortunately some of the commenters here (steveo, Jay in NC, and that ilk) seem to think it's anything but a decent story. I think Jay's sexual innuendos are kinda weird. S/He/It must have a terrible time with his/her own 10-13 yo friends. I can't imagine the difficulty of a life as a young girl having to be with a security guard all the time and to not resent them would be difficult at that age. That they enjoy the SS personalities is a cue that the Obamas parent well and the girls are encouraged to think for themselves.
Since you mentioned me, the onus is on you to show where I stated anything that shows I think this is not a decent story! While you are wrong about me, you are more than correct about some others! As for me, I have been addressing the lack of balance in the statement of others!
How the hell did a nice story about the first family turn into a raging partisan fight with tea partiers versus "crazy liberals"
The very first thought that entered my thoughts as soon as my girlfriend broke up with us was to mobile phone her and influence her to offer me personally an additional chance. Points will be different this specific …silver dimes value

Heya i'm for the primary time here. I found this board and I in finding It really helpful & it helped me out much. I hope to present one thing back and help others like you helped me.
You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
I've been surfing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
