All About the Obamas

As President-elect Barack Obama prepares for his new role of Commander-in-Chief, he, wife Michelle, and daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, chat with the weeklies on how they plan to handle the transition.

People reports that their new lives will be quite a change (new home, new friends, new dog), but Michelle shares with OK!: “We try to keep things really normal.”

Though they’ll be moving into the spotlight, Michelle tells Us Weekly she plans to have her girls stick to the same low-key routines–”homework, chores, dance and soccer”–they had before becoming the First Family.

As for Barack himself, Michelle knows he’ll stay committed to family as they move into their new life: “He’s an incredible husband and father. Not sure if the world knows yet, but they should!”

    Ignorance has run amuck on this site.

    No they did not pose for any of those covers. Just like Sarah Palin’s pics were taken and used but not specifically shot for any of these rags.

    Get a grip. Why are Republicans so hateful?

    And to those who say Obama is not your President, well Bush wasn’t my President either so now we’re even. Get over it!

    I hope America doesn’t fall for this again, the celebrity culture has hit even the Presidency, now it’s not about your experience, record or qualifications to be President, ( which America has confirmed by electing a first term junior senator who served 2 years has no experience in business or Corporate America, military, and has never been an executive in government or out of it ) it’s about becoming a celebrity, how many whacked out people come to see you give a speech or how many celebrities are your friends, God when I saw those 80 thousand crowds if reminded me of countries in the Middle East and Latin America, not a good development in American politics, who never treated their politicians as saviors come to save the day, weak and pathetic.

    They are such a beautiful family, i’m so glad we finally gotten it right with this president

    #52…. It’s funny you say those things………You do know George Bush was our president, Right? Where have you been for the last 8 years? Bush had no problem getting elected (C student). Even with the EXPERIENCE Bush had, governor & politician. Look what he has done to this country. Please stop the nonsense……

  • lo

    LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! And all haters… can’t you just give him a chance before you trash him? Hopefully he can fix up our country and its standing in the world a bit. At the very worst, there’s no way he could be as bad as Prez #43….

  • lo

    And #43 Adam: you are a pathetic excuse for a man. You’d never get lucky enough to have a classy and intelligent woman like Michelle in your life.

  • Vanessa

    I can finally say i’m proud of our president.
    He will surely do a great job :)

  • MiHay

    Helloooooo OVERKILL

    What are you on about? The other leaders do not take him serious. In Europe we take him and what he stands for very serious. Certainly a lot more serious than your current president and all those brain dead idiots who elected him a second time around.

    Do I like the new first lady. No absolutely not. Pretty, far from it. Class, she only wishes. As for our new president, I wish him the best for he has a long hard road ahead of him. Americans always expect quick fixes, be it a war (Vietnam, Iraq) or recession. We (USA) are in serious trouble. There is no quick fix….Hopefully he can start us down the right path, but things are so very bad I don’t think you will see any
    markable improvement for a long long time. Maybe not even while he is in office be it 4 or 8 years. not saying he won’t make a difference, saying you won’t see any big change because it has been so bad for so very long.There is no over nite fix, Obama himself has stated such.Its gonna be a tough road. I will support my president as that is the right thing to do but there is no law that says I have to like his wife.

    I want to know why all these people on here are so ignorant. This man is president of the united states and he won far and square. You can say what you want, but with McCain we would have been in way more trouble with this economy than now with Bush old red neck ass. SO….. yall haters stop hatin. I don’t see Obama out here with 9 houses and shit. They know that McCain is for the rich. You can talk about Obama all you want to, but he made history and just because you didn’t vote for him doesn’t mean he’s not your president. The changes he makes can affect your life just the same.

    Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read “Vote Obama, I need the money”. I laughed.

    Once in the restaurant my server had on a Obama tie, again I laughed – just imagine the coincidence.

    When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need – the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

    I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

    At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

    I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
    This is one ugly family !
    And since people called Gearge Bush dubya, then we should call Barak ,Hussein.
    What’s fair is fair !
    Still an ugly family, though.

  • Brad

    Say goodbye to freedom as we know it, people !

    Barrack wants Compulsory Universal Service. Obama is not a dictator and should not try to be one. He is suppose to SERVE this country, not dictate.

  • bugzy

    What the hell is wrong with the haters in this country? McCain LOST! Get over it or get a passport! GTFO or STFU… please. The choice is yours. If us “whining liberals” had to put up with an election-stealing, lying, false-basis for war providing, economy bankrupting, hate-mongering neocon ideologue for 8 yrs; you can stand 8yrs of peace and prosperity.

    Any of you that have been talking, thinking, writing,or feeling negative about one of the best 1st families that the USA has ever had, need turn that negative energy aound. President Obama IS our president just like the last one. Whether we like it or not. We have chosen the right man this time. So, let’s move forward and get ready for the “change” that is already happening! This family IS beautiful, so don’t be jealous. Be grateful!
