Jim Sensenbrenner sorry for 'big butt' quip
Politico ^ | 22 Dec 2012 | MACKENZIE WEINGER

Posted on 12/22/2011 10:44:49 AM PST by SkyPilot

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner sent a note of apology Thursday to Michelle Obama for referring to her “large posterior” and “big butt,” his spokesperson told POLITICO.

Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) was overheard talking about the first lady’s healthy food initiative — and her “large posterior” — on Wednesday in the Delta Crown lounge at Reagan National Airport, FishbowlDC reported. The representative was recounting a recent conversation he’d had at a Wisconsin Episcopal church and said loudly on the phone that Obama “lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself,” according to Fishbowl.

On Thursday, Sensenbrenner said in a statement, “I regret my inappropriate comment and I have sent a personal note to the first lady apologizing.”

It is comical to me that the left and MSM are trumpeting this story, but they are cutting their own throats doing so.

Everyone knows Moochelle is a HUGE liability.

The days of her posing for 1,000 magazine covers in a year are over with. The public can't stand her. She is a moocher, a phoney, a racist, a hypocrit, and a downright nasty person.

Her "Let's Move!" campaign against obesity is a national joke.

The only people who seem to worship her are clones of Moochelle.

I hope he had the sense to word it in proper “apology” language:

“I’m deeply saddened that my remark was overheard”

He should have said he was just talking about one of her staff assistants, a guy named Hugh Jass.

Moochelle should apologize to us for having to look at the wide load while mandating what others are supposed to eat.

...This was a big woman, big
Her name was Bertha, Bertha Butt-one of the Butt sisters
She looked down on him
And started to crush him
Then she began to play him
He looked up at her and said “sock it to me”
“Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me”
She looked down on him
And said “I’ll sock it to you daddy”.

What is wrong with these people? Don't they realize apologizing draws MORE attention to the original remark, and makes it even more embarrassing?

BTW, she is a lardass.

His apology is the equivalent for apologizing that the birds fly, bees buzz, and the sun shines.

Jim Sensenbrenner sorry for ‘big butt’ quip

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And I’m sorry she is a big butt. She has one and she is one.

Michelle epitomises the acronym ‘OBAMA’.

I think the correct term editorially speaking would be “buttocks” - what’s that scene in Life of Brian where that’s mentioned????

Salon magazine Nov 2008: "First Lady Got Back"

"I'm a black woman who never thought I'd see a powerful, beautiful female with a body like mine in the White House. Then I saw Michelle Obama -- and her booty!"

It's only OK to laud Michelle's booty when Liberals and non-whites do it.

I agree with you! Further in the story it goes on to say he did a charity thing with her and she stayed only as long as the photographers were there. What a witch and so phony!

I regret that he apologized - THAT was his mistake, NOT the fact that he told us the emperor has no clothes.

Methinks such quips are inappropriate. While certainly not skinny, and while a poor juxtaposition with her “Let’s Move” stuff, she’s not huge and not worthy of such particular crass insults. As the lead photos depict, many of those hurtling such criticism would do well to first consider their own considerable girth.

That said, there is plenty to criticize her for, beginning with her lack of adherence to dietary restrictions she seeks to impose on the rest of us.

Jim Sensenbrenner:

Michelle, I’m so sorry for saying you have a large butt. I should have said you had lots of junk in the trunk as that would be putting it in today’s vernacular...

BTW, Love that picture. Her posterior is larger than the widest part of that pencil necked geek she’s next to.

I think in a roundabout way this is the point that Sensenbrenner was trying to make.

Rereading the article, I realized that. I was responding more to the plethora of gratuitous insults. Sensenbrenner need not apologize, as he was noting a factual juxtaposition, not making a crass insult.
