RENO, Nev. (AP) -- First Lady Michelle Obama promoted healthy lifestyles among women and children Tuesday in Nevada and tried to help breathe life into the re-election campaign of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, calling him "one of my favorite people in the world."

"Over the years, he has been a tireless advocate on behalf of women," Obama told about 1,600 people in a keynote address to a women's summit in a downtown Reno convention hall.

So in Barry’s world it’s OK for the Wookie to Fly a Private jet out to Las Vegas to support a corrupt politician....But a private citizen using their own money to fly out to Vegas and have some fun gambling is wrong??? Hypocrisy on display...

Yup,Hussein The Blessed boosted Marsha Coakley last January and our Dietician-In-Chief has boosted Dirty Harry.I hope Harry’s got a book or two in the works because I’d hate to see him forced to squeak by on that paltry Congressional pension of...what....150K/yr?

Can she lift him with one arm or does she balance him on her shoulders? In any event, Reno or Vegas are perfect venues!

Imagine how incredibly demented you'd have to be to have Reid in your top 1000.

“First Lady Michelle Obama promoted healthy lifestyles ... and tried to help breathe life into the re-election campaign of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,”

As Michelle’s caravan/entourage pulled into Reno, she noticed a little rabbit lying on the side of the road. Since they had to cross a bridge, and there was a three ton weight limit so she would have to walk over the bridge, she hefted herself and her caboose out of the limo and waddled over to the poor creature. It showed no signs of life and—it was wearing eyeglasses.
Bigfoot said softly, “Little fellow, you remind me of my good friend, Harry Reid. I think I can help you.”
She made the entire caravan detour to Las Vegas, since they don’t have any drug stores in Reno.
She had her driver `put the pedal to the metal’ and, several hundreds of premium gasoine later, he slammed on the brakes when they saw the poor little dead bunny that looked so much like her good friend, Harry Reid.
She took a plastic bottle out of a sack and squeezed it all over the rabbit and said, “Live, little friend. Live.”
The bunny twitched, wrinkled its nose, adjusted its eye glasses and hopped away.
She had revived him with Rogaine: simple hare restorer, proving what a wise black woman she is, and right then and there she decided to give what was left to her nearly hair-free All-American husband-in-name-only, with an economy-size bottle of Viagra.
The End.

This article actually shows Reid is not doing so hot - only approved of by 33% of people surveyed. Michelle has high approval ratings.

REMARKS BY THE FIRST LADY
AT “LET’S MOVE OUTSIDE” EVENT WITH SENATOR HARRY REID

Red Rock Canyon
Las Vegas, Nevada

2:45 P.M. PDT

MRS. OBAMA: Thank you. Thank you so much. (Applause.) Woohoo! (Laughter and applause.) Oh, my goodness, I am just delighted to be here. This is beautiful. And you notice, kids, how quiet it can be outside? We’re outside! I live in the city. It is never this quiet outside.

It is beautiful. This is just a perfect place for the launch of this new initiative.

But let me begin by thanking — doing my thank you: First, to Senator Reid, not just for his kind introduction but all of the wonderful work he’s done to move this country forward. He’s just been a tremendous asset, not just to my husband, but to the country and to all of you kids. You know, everybody hears about what the President does, but Presidents can’t do anything if they don’t have a good team. And Senator Reid is a member of that good team. So we’re just grateful to have him onboard. (Applause.)

And I have to thank Representative Titus for her tireless advocacy for the people of Nevada in Congress. She’s a member of the team and is doing a terrific job.

http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2010/06/michelle_obama_in_las_vegas_tr.html

Michelle Obama attended the 2010 Women’s Summit in Reno, Nevada on Tuesday wearing a coral colored sundress paired with a pearl necklace. She told the audience, “First, let me begin by apologizing because I have a cold that I caught from this wonderful husband of mine. So forgive my voice and my dryness and all that good stuff. And when I come around to shake hands, there will be somebody following with Purell. Because you all have a lot of work to do and we can’t afford for any of you to be sick.”

Kinda looks like the sermon on the mount, doesn’t it?

Except we get platitudes and attitudes, not beatitudes.
