“I don’t want you to…simply just sit back in awe. I want you all to realize, as you sit here, that you belong here. You have to see yourself here in these seats, sitting up here on this stage one day, because…young people like you with their own dreams,” Michelle said in her inspirational speech to the kids.

    Bye bye Obama the MARXIST TWIT, roll on November 2012

    Fake as a three dollar bill.

  • susana

    It’s great that the White House has their priorities straight during these tough times….

    she is a wonderful woman.

  • ed

    I can’t stand this person, irrespective of politics , I really dislike her fake azz face.

  • itstrueagain

    She slouches, she wears her waistbands up to her armpits, and she’s a bitter person. Not inspiring, not.

  • Mary

    Itstrueagain – wrong, she always is photographed with excellent posture. I have no idea what the rest of your delusional rambling is about. The First Lady has worked very hard to bring attention and offer support to military families, and helping in the fight against childhood obesity, which is a burden (or “tax”) for the rest of us, because of the increase in heart disease rates, diabetes, etc. I hope you can say you’ve accomplished just as much, besides just writing in to this site.

    Emma – November 2012 headlines will read “Obama Re-elected!” The Republican field is very weak, kind of like your tired “Marxist” comment.

  • Oles chery

    Ma win a 2rd turn.

  • Lola

    That “country music” invitation comes at a price…you are expected to work to get him in office…Even if he is an embarassment and the worst ever prez.

  • Lola

    That “country music” invitation comes at a price…you are expected to work to get him in office…Even if he is an embarassment and the worst ever prez….So obvious looking for southern votes cause they think southerners are stupid.

  • Marxist RED

    I sat in a Marxist Liberation Theology church for twenty years listening to racist Pastor that rails against the rich while living in a 9 million dollar home my churchgoers paid for.

  • Mary

    Lola – there was some fantastic music, and it definitely looked like the Obamas and everyone else were enjoying it very much. Watch it on PBS on Wednesday. And I’m sure you’ve heard this before – might I suggest to you anger management classes?
