White House tribal adviser coming soon
Chicago Tribune ^ | February 10, 2009 | Mark Silva

The Obama White House plans to add a policy adviser on native American tribal concerns within the next few weeks, First Lady Michelle Obama said today.

The president "will soon appoint a policy adviser to his senior White House staff to work with tribes and across the government on these issues such as sovereignty, health care and education, all central to the well being of native American families and the prosperity of tribes,'' the first lady said in a visit to the Interior Department today.

The first lady, embarked on a tour of all the federal agencies, was greeted with a traditional tribal "Honor Song" and wrapped in a bright lavender shawl.

This and a handful of other songs were played by a seven-member Black Bear Singers drum band -- with one Indian Affairs employee, one from the Museum of the American Indian and area residents from outside the government.

If we don't add an expert on casino management to the White House staff real soon, the economy may never recover.

No wonder the O’s were annoyed that their daughters had a snow day. The co-President had plans for that day and they did not include some extra time with her girls.

Asshat Obama is preparing to burn the constitution and run the country like the reality show “Survivor”, hence the need for “Tribal Counsel”. He already has his “Council” hat.

Oooh! Ooooh! When does Lord Obama (PBUH) name the official White House musician?

My vote is for George Clinton, his first name will remind the VRWC of the former White House resident, his last name will remind people of the “first” black POTUS and for the Lord Obama (PBUH) bonus, this Clinton always brings the rock.

Saw the headline and thought Hussein was installing an African tribal advisor (that won't happen, 'cause the advice would be to TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY IN AFRICA - you cheap-ass hypocrite!).

As far as the pic of big-ass Me-shell, how'd the Indian know she be likin' purple?
