Washington, June 30, 2011:
While it’s true that children just grow up so quickly. But surely not so quickly President Obama!!!!
At a news conference held in Washington on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 President Barack Obama made a faux pas not just once but twice while mentioning his eldest daughter, Malia’s age.
The US President referred to her age as being 13 years. Well, not yet. She is still only 12. Probably Barack Obama is already looking forward to and thinking of Malia’s forthcoming birthday party. Malia Obama is going to turn 13 on July 04, 2011.
The topic of his daughter’s age cropped up at the news conference. In the course of his speech he rebuked Republicans as procrastinators who only managed to get their work completed at the last minute.
It was in this context that he said even his daughters Malia and Sasha generally complete their homework a day ahead of time. Then he added “Malia’s 13, Sasha’s 10.”
President Obama was basically in his own style nudging the Republicans to reach a deal on upping the national debt limit. This is crucial as the government will then be tapping its borrowing capacity by the fixed date of August 02, 2011.
