Michelle Obama booted from high school graduation lineup
Daily Mail ^ | Associated Press and Meghan Keneally

Posted on 04/24/2014 12:06:03 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister

Michelle Obama has rescheduled a high school graduation speech after the students complained that her appearance would prevent many of their friends and relatives from attending the ceremony.

The First Lady was scheduled to speak at a combined graduation ceremony for five high schools in Topeka, Kansas, on May 17 but will now be speaking at a different 'senior recognition day' ceremony the day before.

'Once we learned about the concerns of some students, we were eager to find a solution that enabled all of the students and their families to celebrate the special day,' said the First Lady's communications director, Maria Cristina Gonzalez Noguera.

Poor woman must feel rejected. Oh well, another vacation should cure that.

She never seemed to mind putting tofu and all that other crap in our school childrens’ bellies.

WH is not looking for any opportunity where a public protest can spring up.

Just think, public high school students told the First Lady of the United States to bug off and not disrupt their special day.

Audits pending for all who signed the list for excluding her from the ceremonies.

On the same morning this happens, I read Eric Holder has cancelled his plan to speak at a police academy graduation ceremony in Oklahoma later this month. Apparently, many citizens and some police officials were plannning to protest the irony of our nations Top Cop now in contempt of court for refusing to supply requested data in the Fast and Furious scandal (among multiple other ugly sins). Maybe people are regaining their personal Mojo and courage.

ROTFLMAO. That was so funny. But so true. She better use all the vacation she can because she only has a little over 2 years left of this fantasy life she has made. Reality will be staring her in the face here in January 2017 when they suddenly have to pay for their trips again.

I’m hoping the tabloid divorce rumors are true, myself. People can diss the National Enquirer all they want, but they were the first and the only reporter of “The Silk Pony’s” extramarital affair and baby.....

I’m hopin’ they’re right.

Probably; chances are Michelle is upset that she isn’t being allowed to run the country and Michell and Obama are not handling the criticism as well since they are unused to it.

Once we learned about the concerns of some students ...
Some? I think there were over 1500 students who complained.

I’m not sure, but I do know that phrase, Magic Negro, was originally penned by an LA Times writer. Rush got blamed for it, but it wasn’t true.

It’s a step in the right direction; besides, I rather like the public slap in the face. Moochelle thought she would be able to lord it over so many people and go figure, she isn’t.

“Once we learned about the concerns of some students, we were eager to find a solution”...because we were too stupid to figure this out ahead of time.
After all, moochie thinks of herself as royalty, and thinks everyone wants her presence whenever possible.

Fully agree; these students have a right to decide who goes to their graduation ceremony.

You’re probably right. She’ll just do like Bill and Hillary do. I’d be willing to be those two haven’t slept in the same bed since way before Monica.

It’s a shame the coward gave himself perpetual Secret Service protection under the guise of terrorism. He did it for himself, but he had to include W in it too to cut down on the flak he’d get. If I were the next President, I’d nullify that EO.

So now both the Top Cop and the Top Cow have been publically dissed. Is it morning in America, yet?

I think that in the case of FLOTUS the people foresaw their town under lockdown by the Secret Service with armed govags outnumbering participants, and said no thanks!
