Earthquake Hits Oaxaca, Mexico Area

Obviously the first question is how does this affect Michelle’s daughter?

The USGS reported a 7.9 magnitude earthquake shook residents of Guerro, Mexico. The earthquake was felt 120 miles away in Acuploco. It was also felt in Oaxaca, the same place that Milia Obama, the Presidents oldest daughter is reportedly on vacation with 12 of her friends. We will update with more information as it becomes available.

Needless to say it’s breaking and they, um, didn’t have time for spellcheck.

I wonder if the Obama will now acknowledge their daughter is in Mexico rather than leaning on news organizations to remove any mention of it?

Update: More here.

The United States Geological Survey reports that the quake’s epicenter was 11 miles underground and 115 miles from Acapulco, in the Oaxaca region, where President Obama’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is reportedly staying for spring break. The White House tells CBS Houston that Malia is safe.

“In light of today’s earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger,” Kristina Schake, communications director to Michelle Obama, told CBS Houston. ”We would reiterate our request that the media respect the privacy and security of the Obama children and not report on or photograph the girls when they are not with their parents.”

    Since when do 13 year old kids need an out of country break from the rigors of grade 7?

    silly rabbit. You shouldn’t question your betters of the 1%. When they vote a certain way that is.
