Michelle Obama Speaks To Camp Pendleton Troops

By JULIE WATSON CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – First lady Michelle Obama is challenging Americans to come up with ways to show support for U.S. troops and their families. Obama spoke Sunday to about 3,500 service members and their families at Camp Pendleton, which has lost five Marines in the war in Afghanistan in the past week. Obama says Camp Pendleton and its neighboring Southern California communities are a model for the nation in terms of showing support for the military.

She says communities can do things such as offer free museum passes, discounts and sending care packages to troops. Obama has made improving quality of life for military families one of her top priorities.

I support military and military families more than Hussein and his wife ever dreamed. I don’t need her lameass advice as she plays the charade.

We already do, Michelle. Thanks for playing!

Didn’t she make a horrible comment at one time about not being the ‘typical First Lady’ serving military families some time ago? I can’t remember that quote.

The only Americans who don’t support the military and their families are all on Michelle’s side.

She apparently wanted an excuse to shop on Rodeo Drive.

Here’s an idea: honoring the military by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day!

She's always challenging us on something. I've always supported the Troops and their families. I don't need a damn lib with a condescending attitude telling me what to do.

STFU Wookie.

Hey Michelle....As the son of a 30 year navy man & a navy vet myself, with 2 sons in the navy, I don’t need your lame a$$ed advice. My family has been doing that for generations. Go back & figure what to wear next & I might suggest you get some help as it is SORELY needed. Now STFU!!

I am sure the first thing a marine thinks when he gets his weekend pass is “Where are the museums, show me the museums!” Legoland is nearby and I am sure it has military discounts.

Like better equipment, better leadership and less unwieldy ROE in battle zones.
