Obama and his wife while the World Trade Center American flag that survived the attack was being folded by local police and fire fighters. Watch the video until the folding of the flag is almost finished. At that point read Michelles big lips as she leans over to Obama and says ALL THIS FOR A FLAG and then shakes her head side to side in disapproval while Obama nods his approval of her statement.

Here’s a link to a condensed version of the video:
I guess she still just has that one time that she has ever been proud of her country.
How I loathe those people.
Now, if this were a memorial for Che Guevara or Joseph Stalin, she would be giving her rapt attention.
This comment says it all—how can he even stain the carpet of the White House?—and I thought Bill Clinton was bad. Are we sure this is what she said—is there any chance it’s something else?
She said, “All this for a stupid flag.”
What an angry hate filled woman.
Pray for America
Do you have a lip reader up in here, because it was pretty difficult to see what she was saying ... and there’s no audio.
I can’t tell what she said, but the horrible eye rolling at such a meaningful moment is hard to take.
It was obviously a disrespectful comment, look at her face. And she definitely says something about flag.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE SH*TTING ME!!! Please tell me we are reading TOOOOOOO much into this...PLEASE!!!!!
if anyone has a list of emails of people in online/other media that might run with this, have resources to bring a lip reader in, etc., it is well worth it.
I do too.
What’s the background? Where were they at? What flag?
This needs to go viral. Drudge, Rush, everywhere.
she seems to be saying either:
...this for a flag
...this for a f___ing flag
these people are beyond loathsome.
I agree she is clearly says the word flag and her face clearly shows her disdain. The wording may or may not be exact, but her meaning is right on the money!
Really. Really. Sure.
At Ground Zero.
Inquiring minds want to know, what did she say?
“I don't say G*d bless, America, I say G*d damn America.”
20 years in the front row of Reverend Jeremiah Wright's “Church” for the Obamas. Rev Wright married the obamas and baptized their children. Obama called Wright his mentor and major influence in his autobiography.
You be the judge if you are reading too much into this.
She rolls her eyes and says, "All this for a flag." He then nods in agreement.
Nevermind I see it now. Slow connection.
It’s in the link. Even in the excerpt.
It was the World Trade Center American flag that survived the attack of 9/11/2001 and the ceremony was the 9-11 10 year Remembrance Ceremony held on Sunday 9/11/2011 in New York City.
Makes me shutter and sick to my stomach....I mean REALLY sick!
Without audio, I don’t know. Some people claim they can read lips... but I don’t buy it. We are not HAL9000’s, reading Dave’s lips about terminating our existence...
I think this is one of those kinds of situations you have to give the benefit of the doubt. Seems like jumping to conclusions otherwise...
I think these kinds of posts are just trying to stir people up to no end. If she said it and a mic recorded it, that would be entirely different. But now we are just going on abstract interpretation of moving lips and rolling eyes. For all we know she was talking about something else entirely.
Also, even if the lip readers are correct, from her facial expression, if she was saying what people here are saying that she said (which I am not in accord with), that could have been a “wowee” moment. We all know she is not exactly groomed for politics, that was her husband that had that training.
I just e-mailed the link to the short version to everyone I know!
I really really want to believe that she was so taken aback by the display of patriotism and was like...OMG all this for a flag...how incredible.....unfortunately, I don’t think that was what she meant... *sad face*
Lip reading is very real. Clearly you haven’t been around a deaf people or you would know. But she defiantly said the word ‘flag’ and her facial expression and eye roll shows that it wasn’t something positive.
I can’t tell what she said, since I’m no lip reader.
I can read expressions and body language though, and if I caught one of my kids making that kind of disrespectful eye-roll following a sour-faced whispered comment to one of his pals at a serious ceremony, if he didn’t get some instant discipline on the spot he’d sure as shooting get some the second it was appropriate.
No doubt at all, this is what she said, that he nodded in disgusted agreement with.
These two venal, disrespectful, anti-American filth should be publicly flogged and then kicked out of the country.
Get a load of this one, kids...
Let's be careful before we bite on this. An experienced lip reader would help tremendously.
I don’t care what she said, it was disrespectful for her to be chit-chatting at that moment.
I put it on my Facebook page.
What she said was a short sentence and I would assume it was one that made sense. I can think of sentence using that would be short enough nor make sense that would contain the words “fold that flag” and especially one that would go with her facial expression and eye roll.
I dont disagree with you....just wishing this was an excerpt played out of context....but unfortunately I don’t think it is
The last three words are definitely “fold that flag”. I can’t make out the first word(s).
Why would anyone talk about the flag and roll their eyes in the manner that she did?
Who even speaks during this kind of ceremony?
Least we forget the funny looking guy standing next to her sends young men and women to die on a daily basis while protecting the flag!!!!!!!!!
If this were the Wife of a Republican President, it would be the beginning of the end.
Since this is the Wife of a Democrat President, it's just one big misunderstanding. Mrs. Obama obviously said, I love being an American, or I love the American Flag, or I wish I was married to a Republican.
As always, I could be mistaken, or drunk.
If this is the real thing...needs to be in breaking...just IMO
It could have been innocent. Hate to admit it.
Obama sees things in terms of a Third World socialist. His father was an African Marxist and his mother a leftist skank. Nothing in his background or experience - far left community organizer, 20 years with the hate-monger Pastor Wright, close friendship with terrorist Bill Ayers, shady real estate deal with Syrian (now jailed) swindler Tony Rezko, associations with Louis Farrakhan and black militants - makes him a real American in terms of values or world view. Obama spent 150 days in the U.S. Senate, about 120 of them campaigning. He spent a few years in the Illinois state legislature voting present. Never has America been so poorly led.
Michelle is a pea from the same pod.
In Britain, Canada or Australia this would cost the Prime Minister his job the day after it hit the media.
