In the first three months of her husbands second term, Michelle Obama has made a splash as fashion icon, entertainer, cover girl. Her The Evolution of Mom Dancing video with Jimmy Fallon has racked up 15.3 million views on YouTube, and shes back on the cover of the sartorial mag Vogue. But if this makes people think shes settling for soft power, avoiding the tough issues recent moves have shown this isnt so.
To the first ladys conventional issues healthy food, exercise and military families add violence against youth. On April 10, she will attend a youth violence event in Chicago, moving close to the gun-control debate, one of the years most contentious political issues.

Keep your bloody hands out of my pantry!
To let them eat cake or to not. That is the question!
why do people have to”signal” just say what you are ding
Yes, it reminds me of the hildabeast who thought she was elected to an office and had the power to work on hillarycare.
She already screwed up “tastes great, less filling”. What else does she want to destroy?
“Why the water level is rising at the beach, and the show melting on the slopes.”
What’s that...tides and change of seasons?
Thats exactly the point of these puff pieces - a fallback candidate in case Hillary! finally has her well deserved aneurysm.
It just never occurred to her before that the first black First Lady might have any
influence over the problems of America's black communities. What a revelation!
And what kind of issues would those be Miss Piggy..is she going to come to my house and demand all our treats so she can eat them herself..Good God I can see why she married Obama, one schmuck deserves another
She does not hold any public office and thus has no mandate to do a damned thing to, or “for” us.
But count your blessings.
Just imagine if our “first Islamic president” had a full-sized harem ... how much more an entire stable of wives could do “for” us....
Finally! She will investigate the birth certificate fiasco!
(putting it mildly)
Starting with how to economize on vacations.
If he had a harem (and he does, unofficially ... that’s what all the golf trips are about) there will be no females involved.
They should be brought up on embezzlement charges. Where does all this money come from? Sure ain’t from Obama’s savings. He hasn’t worked an honest day in his life.
She needs to tighten her boob belts.
Michele will try to decide if we peasants should take a beach vacation or a ski vacation the next time we should be so lucky to get a vacation.
Tackles tough issues......
when will she do that between vacations?
Her condescending attitude?
The emerging attitudes of “we are royalty” daughters?
Her hostility towards decency?
Her hostility towards the USA, its founding, its Constitution....
or is she just going to tell people what to eat and exercise more.
