Michelle Obama Thanks Treasury Department

Michelle Obama Thanks Treasury Department

Michelle Obama addresses employees of the Treasury on Wednesday (July 7) in Washington, D.C.

The First Lady was joined by Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, who introduced her before her speech.

“All of you here at Treasury have, as we know, your plates very full — probably even an understatement — for the past 18 months since this administration came on board,” Michelle said. “When my husband took office, our nation was in the midst of the worst economic crisis in generations. The financial markets were in turmoil. The auto companies were on the verge of collapse — we don’t even talk about that anymore. And for millions of Americans, the dreams that they worked so hard for were just slowly slipping away.”

“So there’s no question that these were difficult challenges, but together, you all have come together to help continue to move this country forward. And for that you should be proud,” she added.

    she’s so ugly

  • pamela

    @ jenna. I totally agree. That b!tch puts the UG in UGLY.

  • RobertE

    Jenna, sadly that is your opinion, I think she looks good.

    This is why she is where she is at with a Harvard law degree and you are typing on a blog. Instead of worrying about her looks how about you get out of your moms house and get a job., you dirty bum.

  • Tuesday

    @Jenna: Ugly are you inside!

  • RobertE

    Pamela that goes for your harry ugly behind as well, how about you go get jobs you dirty slut2

  • BOBTHEPLUMBER

    She looks like a monkey. An ugly monkey.

  • Jade

    Love Michelle O! She’s a true inspiration unlike Sarah Palin who makes me feel ashamed to be a woman.

  • cynthia

    lol @ bobtheplumber. I was thinking the exact same thing.

  • robertwilliams

    @ bobtheplumber. Amen Brother.

  • joemomma

    @ jade. You need to put the crack pipe down. Sarah Palin is hot –Michelle Obama is nasty,

  • Jim

    Michelle for President !

  • Eric Shinn

    I luv Michelle Obama!!!! I imagine her to smell delicious – like cocoa body butter!!!!

  • rehab

    that is one ugly-ass monkey-like woman!! B!TCH!!!

  • rehab

    u think u r a hot shot?!! well…..how about u drive your teethy face into the ground and bury urself with shame!!!

  • craig

    omg Michelle is one ugly b!tch. I bet she has bad breath too.

  • sillyme

    RobertE, it’s okay to think Mrs. Obama is not attractive….really. I can’t think of any First Lady who was really attractive except for maybe Jackie Kennedy. Even in the black community, I can guarantee you that most black men would walk right past Michelle on the street without looking. I would consider her a “handsome” woman, though, along the lines of, say, Margaret Thatcher or the late Bea Arthur. But, attractive? Nah.

  • nastygurl

    I also think that Michelle Obama is a very ugly individual. And my opinion is the only one that really matters.

  • BOZO

    Yeah I will have to also say that Michelle Obama is ugly. But then again I think all black women are ugly.

  • http://Justjared.com Slig

    Also rihanna one is ugly ???? Black woman

  • Athina

    Lots of racist rednecks on here. Why are you knuckle draggers focusing on an individual’s appearance? Could you be any more shallow and superficial? She’s not trying to win the Miss USA pagent, dumbasses. I think she looks good here. She’s one smart lady. She doesn’t care what a bunch of losers living in mommy and daddy’s basement think. LOL

  • rhonda

    the Japanese are now mocking and ridiculing Barry and Shelly on National tv. have you seen it? Barry is a magician, pulling hope and change out his hat and Shelly is his assistant.

    You can see how the whole world loves and respects us now that the Obama’s are in the WH> NOT!

  • fashionflop

    her skirt is so inappropriate for the event, her age, etc,,,

    It’s more like a Easter dress for church or something.

  • rhonda

    @RobertE:

    she was an affirmative action student at Harvard and her law license has been SUSPENDED by the state of Ilinois and the reason under seal of the court.

    she does jump rope and hula hoop on the South Lawn of the WH. Perhaps that makes you really proud.

  • Londoner

    Lovelt woman.

  • shemale

    Michelle Obama should not be judged so harshly for her ugly appearance. She is very intelligent and that should be enough. So what if she is very ugly.

  • @rhonda

    @rhonda: Do ever get tired, you must be exhausted by now, how long are you going to carry on with that contempt in your heart, surely your heart can carry you for so long. Rest. You need it.

    I like how you say Mz O was an affirmative action student, how about the white students, can we use the same argument and say they got in because they were not black, sounds logical right????

  • Rhianna

    She looks beautiful here.

  • BOZO

    @BOZO: “Yeah I will have to also say that Michelle Obama is ugly. But then again I think all black women are ugly”

    I correct myself……Yeah I disagree Michelle is a Beauty, with a capital B. But then again I think white women won’t agree coz they are all UGLY as sin.

  • QueenOfTrashin

    As usual, she looks like shit. She should try wearing some drop-waist dresses so we can stop looking at her waistline that is just under her boobs. And that too-short skirt shows off her bowlegs really well. Shit, someone help a bitch out!

  • rhonda

    @@rhonda:

    that didn’t even make sense. White kids with higher IQ’s and grades were not admitted so the black woman could go and earn D’s and graduate at the bottom of the class. That’s what we call a race to the bottom. When the nations smartest and brightest are held back for the RIGHT skin color, sex and sexual orientation. A RACE TO THE BOTTOM!

  • sassygirl

    I read an article written by a man who was her boss in Chicago and he said she was “always unhappy” not a fun or easy person to deal with.

  • sassygirl

    I watched the Japanese skit and was shocked to see so many people laughing at the president and his wife pulling “hope and change” out of a hat. America is now a joke on Japanese tv

  • @rhonda

    No ….rhonda…no. Honey stop, surely you cannot be serious. Do you even have proof of that? I doubt and i’m sure you do too, what you have written cannot be facts, but your fabricated stories that you cannot even backup with concrete evidence. oh honey..i get the hatred that you feel for her, it comes natural for you. but really c’mon. Because obama went to harvard it cannot be because she is intellegent, coz only white people are…….really.????

  • zao77254

    I question her sense of style but as a person I find her quite complex, she must be quite interesting to know privately but if I was her friend I’d tell her to tone it down and dress more conservatively

  • mailey

    she is so pretty.

    i love the skirt, but i dont like it so high-waited like that.

    and no pearls. pearls are aging and for grandmas, which she is far from.

  • ZAHARA

    I am willing to bet the people behind their PCs judging FLOTUS are short, fat, funny teeth people – no education, hate their jobs, and are unhappy..

    Beautiy is in the eyes of the beholder. I think she is beautiful and attractive. Great skin, body for her age. And the key is that she’s smart and ACCOMPLISHED!!! The bogoted vitriol is unnecessary and just makes you haters look jealous!

  • princess

    Michelle Obama is a sk@nk.

  • wackybutnice

    She may be intelligent and smart but lately she is looking like those 3rd World Countries President’s wife who has looted the Treasury Department for personal enrichment!!! She was OK looking when she was just simple.

    Hello, do you understand affirmative action? If Michelle Obama was as smart as you think she is, she wouldn’t have needed affirmative action to go there. If she was that SMART, scholarship would have been available.

    YES, a smart WHITE kid had EARNED a seat at HARVARD and was held back so the black woman could go and get D’s and graduate at the bottom of the class. That is what AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is!

  • ZAHARA

    @Rhoda: Are you even serious with that Affirmative action crap? I guess Hillary Clinton is not that smart either… Or Barbara Boxer, carly Fiorina, and all the other female bigshots.. Cause you know affirmative action affects white women as well right? You probably didn’t know, because bigots are usually lacking facts… I can school you, but it would be a waste of my time..

  • Alba

    Out of the heart abundance the mouth speak. A good person brings out good things out of the heart. But a wicked person brings out wicked or bad things. This shows what is in the heart of the person.
    All who are calling her ugly and other names shows what is in your heart and am I sure it is showing on your face also.

    @ZAHARA:

    none of the women you mentioned went to college on affirmative action, not even Sarah Palin.

    White women use affirmative action to get ahead in the work place

    I don’t really care about it, just don’t try to tell people how brilliant she is when its not true, she got into Ivy league cause she was black not brilliant!

  • @rhonda

    “YES, a smart WHITE kid had EARNED a seat at HARVARD and was held back so the black woman could go and get D’s and graduate at the bottom of the class. That is what AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is”!

    LOL….Wallow in your own PITY, BO is going places, she is SMART, INTELLEGENT and BLACK. You cannot change the FACT. She went to HARVARD on her own own merit, not because some White entiled kid was held back by BO. If the so called smart kid was smart they would find a place in harvard regardless of BO, trust me on this one. In the mean watch as BO takes YOUR place in the WH as FLOTUS…Weep rhonda weep…weep!

    Thanks the Treasury Dept for what? Run by a tax cheat who presided over a systemic effort in Nov 08 to suppress public disclosure of ailing insurer AIG’s backdoor bailout payments to banks? One who in June 09 reassured the Chinese government that its huge holdings of dollar assets are safe & reaffirmed his faith in a strong U.S. currency? Tax cheat’s answer drew loud laughter from the Chinese audience, reflecting scepticism in China about the wisdom of a developing country accumulating a vast stockpile of foreign reserves instead of spending the money to raise living standards at home. Yeah, thanks for the good work & wisdom Mr. Tax Cheater.
