Skip to comments.What Michelle Obama didn't tell the Olympics Committee
Posted on 10/04/2009 3:19:25 AM PDT by Scanian
While Michelle Obama fruitlessly pimped (oh ok, shilled, promoted) her corrupt, broke and now nationally known violent, native town, as a site for the 2016 Olympics, for the first time in her life she was seemingly proud of it.
"of working families -- families with modest homes and strong values.Sports were what brought our community together. They strengthen our ties to one another."
It was also, and still is, a relatively high crime neighborhood. It is a testimony to Michelle and her parents that she emerged relatively unscathed except with a huge, but somewhat understandable, chip on her shoulder. Many of the proposed venues for the games would be in or near her old neighborhood she noted, which is also not far from her former employer, the University of Chicago, an institution, which for some reason never reached out to her as a "promising student" as she once whined.
She continued her plea.

Michelle Obama is a PR disaster every time the Obama camp lets her out of her guilded cage with 27 paid synchophants and servants.
To brag, in Copenhagen and before the world, that your father taught you how to fight dirty in the streets of Chicago, land left hooks, and other rhetoric withing days of two students in Chicago being savagely beaten (one to death with planks and boards) is the height of being morally and politically tone deaf.
Someone lock her back up in the West Wing, get her a few alcoholic drinks, let her go shopping for hideous outfits, and get ready for another taxpayer financed "date night" somewhere.
You’re so right and what I wonder is who wrote that speech for her? Surely someone had to check the speech at the very least! Talking about fighting only served to remind the IOC members of what they’ve seen on TV recently about Chicago, I’m sure.
I have been looking for the transcript. The only person I heard talking about it was Michael Medved on his radio show. Medved is a very thoughtful man, and he usually does not go off half cocked. He was incredulous at her choice of words in the wake of the beatings and the one murder in Chicago.
A typical Obama speech. It’s all about ME!
“I don’t understand her huge chip.”
It’s not her fault she has huge hips? Oops you said chip, sorry.
After years of bombardment from race hustlers, poverty pimps, and libtard politicians, the chip-on-the-shoulder syndrome is probably the rule and not the exception.
The woman is a hateful narcissistic wretch without a gracious or greatful bone in her body.
The article was about what Omama didn’t tell the Olympics committee but after reading it I can’t tell what that was.
Man, that pic says it all!!!!
Perhaps Michelle should consider wearing a Burqa!
I know many people of color who have the happiest and most pleasant disposition...nothing like Michelle.
She brings to mind that old adage "you see in others what you see in yourself." By that notion, she must be a "downright mean" and hateful person.
Its all about the race card, 24/7/365.
Just curious...what was it about comment #5 that got it pulled?
I was just going to add a comment that the picture depicts an utterly joyless person.
The only person I have seen in recent years with such a countenance is Rosalyn Carter.
That action requires a response. Why?
So thats what boiling hate looks like.
I think it is kind of like the Obamas taking seperate Jets to Denmark at taxpayer expense:
Because they can, and there is nothing you can do about it.
The nerve of you to ask, after all. /s
I was asking the Admin Moderator why they pulled the pic of Michelle in post 5.
That action needs an explanation.
Otherwise, I know that Palmetto is pronounced Pal-metto.
I'm on your side.
What she didn’t tell them is the context that the author is supplying, I suppose. He doesn’t come right out and say “she didn’t them that Chicago is a crime ridden, corrupt hell-hole.”
Got it...no prob here.
Have you received a response?
I am very curious why the pic was pulled. Did you add a comment that may have been demeaning?
Otherwise, I would think that post 9 should be pulled, too.
Lacking a response, I’m ticked off.
Carl Lewis ran in the 1980 Olympics? For which country? Under what pseudonym? If Michelle Obama sat on her Daddy's lap cheering on Carl Lewis in the Olympics, the earliest date would have been 1984, making her 20.
Even if you can disregard the creepy aspect, or get over the ridiculous picture of a 6 ft. woman of substantial heft sitting on the lap of a man with Multiple Sclerosis....
...there's evidence she and her father weren't even located in the same time zone during the summer of '84. (Unless her father was attending summer camp in New York, where she was a counselor.) Political columnist Lynn Sweet reported in August of last year that Michelle worked at Camp ABC for the Fresh Air Fund.
Bottom line is, no one's "running after" this as an issue, if the issue is where her large rump was in the summer of '84. It is, however, wholly legitimate to notice when the the First Lady of the U.S. tells deliberate whoppers for self-serving reasons while on the national stage.
I didn't think my comment was beyond the pale...which is why I am curious.
A - The First Lady:
1. Unhidden cost of her US aircraft to and from Copenhagen?
2. Cost and detailed list of accompanying staff currently on the US payroll?
3. Cost of accompanying staffs' accommodations, food, refreshments, local travel (taxi), Official Transportation, etc. for First Lady's party?
4. Any additional aircraft for First Lady's party, for folks like family, press, dog, Secret Service?
5. Amount Opra is reimbursing the USA for her envolvement and that of her staff for #1 - #4, above?
6. Amount the Chicago Olympic Committee is reimbursing the USA for the First Lady's envolvement and that of her staff for #1 - #4, above?
B - POTUS
1. True and total unhidden cost of Air Force One for the trip to and from Copenhagen?
2. Cost and detailed list of accompanying staff currently on the US payroll?
3. Cost of accompanying staffs' accommodations, food, refreshments, local travel (taxi), Official Transportation, etc. for the POTUS's party?
4. Any additional aircraft for POTUS's party, for folks like family, press, dog, Secret Service?
5. Cost US picking for accompanying Press Corps, including travel, accomodations, food, refreshments, etc.?
6. Cost of flying the POTUS "big black car" and the accompanying Secret Service vehicles, drivers, fuel, staff accomodations, food and refreshments?
7. Amount the Chicago Olympic Committee is reimbursing the USA for the POUS's envolvement and that of his staff for #1 - #6, above?
C - Total net expense for "A" & "B" to the USA Tax Payers?
All I ask for a a true and honest (if that is not redundant!) of this "excercise" to the American Public. I'd be interested to also know who has personal vested interests in the possible favorable outcome for this adventure, specifically relating to the possible sale of real estate and other servicees should the Chicago Olympic Committee - 2016 be successful.
That's all I ask. Starting to think of the length of time a snow flake or many snow flakes can survive in Hell while I await the answer to the forgoing questions.
When will someone in the "main stream" news business address any of these questions and share the results with us.
I would blame Michelle.
Even if the speech writer made up the story, Michelle would have known the truth.
That’s the best fashion advice I have heard since November 4th.
Good to know! Thx much!
I agree. And on top of it, the speech would have passed through about 20 hands minimum before she delivered it in Copenhagen. Not one thought to double check when these athletes competed? Pretty basic stuff. Normal, honest people do fact checking to make sure their memories are accurate....because normal people think the truth matters. When making up a story, you'd check the facts just to cover your rear. They're not just liars, but incompetents as well.
And thanks for the hat tip at #31. The people who think the incident is minor or nitpicky either do not understand the critical nature of character in government, or they don't care. This is enormously instructive info about this administration, and absolutely salient to issues far graver than the Olympics.
That may be true but if it was the speech writer he or she will catch holy hell
I just hope Beck Limbaugh Levin Hannity get all over the story
“When making up a story, you’d check the facts just to cover your rear. They’re not just liars, but incompetents as well.”
I believe they wrote it on purpose, left it in the speech on purpose, because they knew it would sound good and they’d never get called on it. Just like the Clintons. The only reason Hillary got called out on her “flying in under hostile fire” comment was because the State Run Media had already decided Obama was their man.
Thank you for that explanation.
It’s a Getty image - which is not allowed on FR.
Thx...I will avoid Getty in the future.
Bookmarked for later
And to state she’d “Take no prisoners!” Ultimate classy. That look in the above photo is the same hateful one she shot at Carla Bruni - has she not even learned in the past 2 years that there is ALWAYS a camera on her, or does she just not care to try to hide her hatred of whitey?
