This is a great development - best news I have read all day — Michelle Obama could clearly become a major loose cannon rolling around on the deck of the Democrat ship. Who knows what she will say or do and even what kind of mayhem she will cause behind the scenes in the White House on a daily basis? Republicans and conservatives should stand back and wait to unwrap the presents, as far as this matter is concerned. I just don’t think this particular person will allow herself to be managed or disciplined or restrained (by herself or others) for any extended period of time during this administration, and she has three and a half years to get out there and alienate voters while making everyone on Obama’s staff miserable and less effective in pursuing any agenda over time. You could suspect those early over-the-top fan pieces in the media were perhaps the result of an attempt to sort of drug her into accepting a particular get-along sort of role. It didn’t work. So turn that ego loose and get the cameras rolling!

Is it the camera or does she always seem to over power him? He appears like a weakling when they’re appearing ‘presidential’.

Hussein’s wife is not my cup of tea. But if she must get involved, she needs to do First Lady stuff like promote reading, etc. Otherwise, clam up.

Barack Hussein Obmama Junior’s alleged basketball prowess is a media myth

Obama played 2nd string Varsity in HS and played very little

In Germany the televised alleged 1st “swish” shot was actually only after Obama took 6 warmup practice shots than he missed

Governor Sarah Palin actually played 1st string Varsity and scored the winning shot to win the Alaskan State HS Championship

The very fact that nobody Obama went to college or law school with remembers him and Obama cannot name one student he recalls during that period leads to a new Twilight Zone episode

Obama is a PR and media creation and his complete refusal to produce any records or information that can be verified is ample evidence that he has a shadowy background and little substance or experience

Obama’s “Presidential” problem is most obvious in his 180° reversal of his campaign promises re: “no lobbyists.....” - “95% of Americans will get a taxcut.....” - “Transparency.....” - etc. etc. etc.

What honest quote best describes Obama? :

“Maybe a little blow.....”

" What was it that Patton said about “shovelin’ sh*t in Mississippi” during the war?"

As a Mississippi resident, I need to point out that Georgie referred to Louisiana.

Obama recently appointed him the new NASA Administrator - lots of criticism at NASA over this

Very few Shuttle launches left in the schedules - 3 launch holds on the last Shuttle - serious hydrogen leaks again and again

Then the USA will be depending on hitchhiking aboard Russkie rockets
To the moon Ivan!

Don’t know his name but it doesn’t matter. I’m probably out of step on this, but don’t see the necessity of spending billions on space shuttles when we have more important things here on earth to take care of.

Let’s cure some diseases, and then worry about space travel.

The alleged manned trip to Mars is a joke - 8-10 rockets would be required just launch the hardware that would need to be assembled in space - NASA cannot finish the ISS or do much more than patch up or update Hubbell - NASA allegedly inspected Hubbell before it first went up with a defectively ground mirror!

Obama would not dare walk the urban downtown streets of Hartford or St. Louis or New Haven or Atlanta or Gary or Boston at midnight alone - even if it was when he was in still an unknown college student

To walk on the moon again? Under Obama ACORN would be running the show -

I’d just have to repeat what I said earlier. It’s just not a priority as far as I’m concerned.

It is a make-work program if anyone believes resources from the moon or other planets could be mined and transported back to Earth

The hook in the manned Mars project is that the crew would have to mine and process Mars elements and liquids into fuel that would power them back to Earth

Yeah right!

The thought of mining and transporting ‘stuff’ from the moon or other planets is so mind boggling stupid that words fail me.

We don't have enough plants to process oil now, nor enough nuclear plants for power. Everything’s a big fight and they want to mine the moon.
