Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: I know people say it was a sacrifice for me and Oprah to go to Copenhagen

Im pretty sure no ones saying that.
In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her dear friend and chit-chat buddy Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrows visit by President Obama, is a sacrifice on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days, the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home.

Didn't you know it would end up being "for the children"?
A sacrifice? Nah, we are saying it was an extravagance.
Oprah and me.
It seems terribly rude to tell people it was a sacrifice to visit their city.
it's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it...
Thank You for your sacrifice, Michelle, from a grateful nation. Somewhere tonight in Afghanistan, a grateful military troop may whisper a prayer that your noble mission not go unrecognized.
First of all Mrs. Obama, it’s “Oprah and me”.
I am certain there was an opportunity at Princeton to learn grammar.
Sacrifice.. poor baby.. we all know how hard it is, I mean, you have to get out of bed, jump in one of the nicest planes in the world with celebrities, jaunt around Europe, having people wait on you hand and foot. I mean, come on, it is such a tough job, people should really feel sorry for her. Maybe she could find an easier job like working at McDonalds, mowing lawns, being a Wal Mart greeter, selling shoes, who knows, something has to be much easier on her than that tough, exhausting, job she has now.
BREATHTAKINGLY arrogant and self-centered comments from an ‘intelligent’ woman with absolutely NO idea of how she offends....maybe because she doesn’t actually THINK like a hard-working American.
That is the First Lady of this country? Looks like she is going to eat someone.
I doubt she rubbed up against any hoi polloi - that’s the little people.
She’s strictly elite all the way.
These folks are shameless.
NO, YOU listen to ME! It IS a SACRIFICE! I have to come over here to a country full of white people! DAMN RIGHT it’s a sacrifice! Have to be in a bunch of sick pale lookin’ people walkin’ aroun..
/sarc, but you know it’s true, don’t you?
Gotta wonder if Oprah would be hanging out with McCain’s wife, had He won?
In any event, if Chicago doesn't get the Olympics its racial.
rofl. She learn from Obama. Straw man arguments.
Correct. Most of the promoters I’ve heard talking about the bid always run together “the Olympics and Para-Olympics” in one breath. They talk about how important the second event is, which takes place a few weeks after the Olympics. Then they launch into a sermon on how important it is for handicapped people. They are always looking out for the children, handicapped, etc./s
