    Isn’t he busy having meeting with former Drag Dealer Jay-Z and his booty shaking wife Beyonce? I’m so over Obama, i’m beyond disappointed in him! All them promises and all that talk and he ain’t done sh!t. He’s nothing but a Black Bush! At least if you gonna hate on Bush make sure you ain’t gonna do the same thing ok?

    Oh please Popular ALL presidents have celebrities visit remember the Nixon Elvis Presley picture…the one where he gave Elvis a badge to fight drugs….remember Reagan and Sinatra, Reagan and Michael Jackson, What about the Clintons and Barbara Streisand. Do not act brand new…you are just paying attention now. This is tradition…another tradition is that the president meets with famous AND not famous people like the boyscouts. THIS IS NOT NEW…you just finally began to PAY ATTENTION….

    @Nobody:
    I agree completley with you. Everything he does is constantally judged by a lot of people. It’s one thing if you hate his politics but I hate when people are racist. Michelle looks nice.

    She should keep her hair like that. It suits her. I will lay off the black eyeshadow..it makes her look like she has dark circles around her eye…or try an eyeshadow that is more grey.

    @Brian: Well good because she HAS to! It ain’t a “favor” she’s the 1st lady, she SHOULD care for others! Otherwise what’s the use of being a “First Lady”

    @yo sista:
    What’s your problem? Michelle is a independent, thinking woman. She is probably an ideal first lady and she seems like a great role-model. You have no idea how lucky you are, I wish we had a strong woman like her as first lady in my country.

    She acts like the pamperd princess. Living on the Dole – that’s the sweat of the taxpayer’s efforts. Al you people can see is that they are African American. Big Deal. You are not seeing beyond this. Check this out:

    She can’t help that she’s tall and huge. She can do something about her eyebrows, but they must be how she likes them.
