Skip to comments.Michelle Obama helps children track Santa's Christmas Eve journey - with NORAD
Posted on 12/25/2010 4:37:18 PM PST by traumer
Michelle Obama joined an American festive tradition when she fielded calls to a Santa-tracking switchboard last night.
The North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) has been tracking Santa's Christmas Eve travels for 55 years but this is the first time an American First Lady has joined in the fun.
A telephone link from Hawaii, where the Obamas are spending Christmas break, to NORAD, the joint U.S.-Canada command that monitors the North American skies from a control centre in Colorado Springs, allowed Mrs Obama to speak to excited American children keen to know Santa's whereabouts.
The White House said Mrs Obama took calls for 40 minutes and spoke with children from at least a dozen families.
'I was ecstatic because I was talking to the president's wife,' said Evan Race, 10.
'I was really surprised' said his eight-year-old sister Anna. Seven-year-old Colin Race also got to talk with Mrs Obama.
NORAD Tracks Santa, the official name of the exercise, began in 1955 when a Colorado Springs newspaper ad invited kids to talk to Santa on a hotline.

I am all wee-weed too..... :o)
So she’s not a muslim? Excuse my ignorance; stories about her are usually uninteresting/annoying/offensive/etc.
Ain’t Esther is on the job.
The Rookie & the Wookie. Just marvelous.
Now THEY have your phone # and GPS co-ordinates....
No, Aunt Esther is though.
But I am so under the Radar it will not help them.
Was she shoveling ice cream down her throat at the time?
No, little Evan, you were being used.
What she won’t tell us is that they have put up a no fly zone around the white house for Santa because they don’t believe in giving gifts to children.
She doesn’t celebrate Christmas but helps track Santa. And she tells what one of her girls wants for Christmas. These people will lie about anything.
Last year Michelle stole his belt!
Santa would not need all those reigndeer. Just have MOsquach pull the damn thing herself.
Janet Napolitano was trying to get the AF to shoot Santa down, claiming she was protecting the “American People”.
“Just have MOsquach”
I close my eyes and pretend I’m Santa. I can not see around that fat ass. I crash into a chim...... lol
Is she going to a zombie ball?
I thought she didn't celebrate Christmas...so what's up with the Santa/NORAD PR crap? These two are so full of lies and fraud, it literally makes me sick. Either that or too much pumpkin pie. Nope...it's them.
Was she following Santa’s sleigh in the Millennium Falcon?
Like I said: MOSQUATCH.
I can only imagine that she has surrounded herself with yes men that tell that the media is right...she is a Fit, International Icon .
What a fool. And what an embarrassment to our country. Oh, how I miss Laura Bush.
It’s not every day kids get to talk to a real life Wookie.
Sadly I don’t think that was shopped. This is not the first time for the FLOTUS to dress, uh, different.
” I was ecstatic because I was talking to the president’s wife,’ said Evan Race, 10.”
Reggie Love was answering the phone ?
I’d hit it.
The Obamas do not celebrate Christmas and have said they don’t give their daughters Christmas presents. So, why was she doing this??? Couldn’t be for publicity, could it?
Hey, where’s the warning!!!
“I’d hit it.”
I wouldn’t know where to start. Note that both her daughters appear to have given up trying to put their arms around them. The First Lady’s buttocks may be one of the marvels of the modern world.
Here’s the obligatory video.
FR medicos: Is is possible for buttocks to `metastasize’? In every photo I see of them they seem to have grown, and at an almost exponential rate.
Causation: Rich diet? Lack of exercize/too much exercize? Heredity? How big do you think they could get? Twice as big? Even bigger?
I was kidding. I don’t think a cocktail mix of viagra cialis whiskey and hundred dollar bills could get me “ready” to perform if you catch me. Lol.
OMG that outfit is horrendous. Those bands around her arms show how tight the sweater is. She couldn’t button the sweater if she tried. Certainly not over that hideous wide belt.
Does this woman have a mirror?
Well, isn’t that “Big” of her?
What fabricated BS by the writer.
I'm 120 years old and only learned how to pronounce "ecstatic" a couple years ago.
Santa better watch out.
Last year Michelle stole his belt!
And it’s buckled in the last hole!

You don’t look a day over 95!
“24/7—We Gots Wood.”
Treebeard & the Ents
I bought a Ruger SR9, Glockster. Sweeeeet!
I'm sure it was all PR, a "touchy-feely" moment to try to make them look like regular people. BS. They are elitist to the core. MOsquatch couldn't spell NORAD let alone name where it's headquarters is, or even guess as to who else (other than the US) is involved in it.
What a nightmare. If my kids were young enough to be calling in to ask where Santa was, mo is one of the last people on Earth I'd want them to talk to. Well, at least she is a few dozen people above her husband hussein who would come in at about dead last.
In the words of the immortal Church Lady -
“Welllllll, isn’t that special.”
“Wow. That get up looks even worse from behind.”
No, it’s not the getup. Her behind looks even worse from behind - LOL
You’re killin’ me! ROFLM(own)AO!!!
Where was the barf alert?
So that is what it is..a fertility..oh I can’t say it or I’ll be banned!
