Just Another Isolated Incident...

UPDATE: Obama's oldest daughter advertising, promoting, sporting the official symbol (twice) for the communist founded Anti-American Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in Italy during her father's meetings with Russia on US Nuclear disarmament it turns out is actually just "another isolated incident".

Whew... glad we cleared that up... move along, nothing to see here.

Miss Obama's peacenik T-shirt(s) sends message to G8 leaders...

In other unrelated news....The Guardian UK-
"A CND spokesman expressed delight at seeing their logo on a member of the first family."Perhaps Malia has been the driving force behind the administration's push towards a new disarmament deal? We'll get an 'I'd-rather-grow-up-than-blow-up' T-shirt in the post to her straight away."

UPDATE 2: It looks like not everyone got the memo that Malia's "peace sign" shirt has absolutely nothing to do with the CND.

UK Mirror: -
"Barack Obama's daughter Malia was upfront about her support for CND yesterday."

Obama T-shirt Dominates G-8 Talks

"World leaders at the G8 summit are preparing for crucial talks on climate change, but media attention has concentrated on the T-shirt worn by president Obama's daughter this morning.

His eldest daughter, Malia, was spotted emerging from an ice cream parlour sporting a Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) T-shirt with the infamous symbol for nuclear disarmament printed on it.

Coming just days after her father successfully confirmed a reduction in America and Russia's nuclear arsenal, the T-shirt is being treated as a political statement by the Obama camp, especially given the media-savvy character of the new administration."

Daily Star- "Obama's Getting Shirty"
"Earlier this week Obama’s 11-year-old daughter Malia was wearing two T-shirts with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s famous logo."

OK! Magazine-

"HER father is busy discussing world issues. But it seems 11-year-old Malia Obama has a message of her own.

The baby-faced daughter of US President Barrack and Michelle Obama was spotted walking through the streets of Rome in a Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) t-shirt."

Message from Malia
The Australian

"BARACK Obama's daughter Malia, like her mother, Michelle, isn't afraid to make a fashion statement. The 11-year-old has used her Roman holiday at this week's G8 summit to send a not-so-subtle political message to world leaders. Just 48 hours after her dad met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, where the pair signed an agreement to reduce their nuclear weapons, Malia twice donned clothing with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament's logo. On a visit to the Colosseum with her mother and seven-year-old sister, Sasha, Malia wore a T-shirt bearing the CND logo, and then swapped it for a top featuring the same logo on a trip to a gelato bar. The CND was "delirious" to see its logo on a member of the US first family.

"We'll get an 'I'd-rather-grow-up-than-blow-up' T-shirt in the post to her straight away," said a CND spokesman."

Yeah, dave at Oklahoma Lefty is right... it's only us partisan rightwingers that think Milia was making a political statement by wearing the official CND logo in Italy.

*sigh* So much for trying to apply to reason, compassion, and the benefit of the doubt.

Whoops. I did not mean to post that comment twice. Sorry about that.

I only listed a few of the articles from around the globe calling Milia's shirt a political statement... in fact, the Obama administration confirmed it.

I know everything is a gray area... all are partially wrong and all are partially right, nobody's perfect it's not their fault, they were misunderstood, wearing a rainbow on your shirt at a gay pride parade has nothing to do with homosexuality... wearing the CND logo to a "nuke" meeting is perfectly innocent.

I understand perfectly.
