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.

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

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.

Who the hell do you think your are talking to MO?

You stupid idiot classless piece of trash, now go wipe that BBQ off your mouth, then tell your worthless other half that he is the first in line to help our military and our country.

Just shut up and go away and take BO with you, (not the dog), but that too. Every organization I see has a basket out for us to give usefull products to send in care packages, like you really care.

Maybe you can send them a pkg. of your WH garden SEEDS, idiot, I'm sure they will be just thrilled.

I am getting just so sick and tired of just seeing you anywhere giving advice on anything, your a do NOTHING, know nothing of any importance to be able to advise anyone on anything.

Americans support troops and their families ... the government doesn’t and the Demon-crats don’t either ... look what Reid and Kerry and Murtha have said and also how the government refuses aid and benefits and also charges for lost equipment when a soldier is wounded and is in a hospital ...

Was she wearing that “ammo-belt” as an accessory to curry favor with the troops? STFU, michelle, you condescending anti-American who attended an anti-American, racist “church” for 20 years and who had her children exposed to that trash-talking racist “reverend” wright. America has no tolerance for your garbage. P.S. Lose some weight...you keep condescendingly telling all of us to exercise and eat healthy. What about your freak husband’s smoking habit? Stop wasting our money flying around making a fool of yourself. Do you or your freak husband spend any time with your children or each other. Losers.

Was it Bambi who said that he and Bigfoot used to burn the American flag when they were younger? It makes me sick to see people taking her picture. She is a disgrace to our military, our flag and to everything that makes America great.
She wouldn’t understand the sacrifice and bravery of our young men and women who fight for our freedoms if it slapped her upside the head.
And you know the Two Imposters are laughing their arses off in the WH at night..knowing that they were able to pull off yet another day of fraud and chicanery.
She can dig in her crappy garden all she wants and tell her fat, entitled dependent friends and their children to “get up and move”.
But when she dares to take on the most precious of our treasures: American military heroes and their families, and pretend to be “one” of them who truly feels their pain...well, it’s sickening.

Why should we listen to a woman who, like her husband, clearly does not really give a damn?

And how many causes is she going to have?

Instead of a big black and white grid print (not good to wear horizontal lines, Michelle), some red, white, and blue would have been a nice touch. You know, flag colors...

First of all, she is no one to tell Americans how and what to eat. And as far as obese children, yeah she needs to launch that campaign under her own roof first.
She hates our military strength and I think our military knows that.
She is a disgrace to her “office” and one of Americas most embarrassing, over-rated, never-did-anything-in-her-life “presidents-wife”.
The very Spirit of America is spitting The Marxists Occupiers out.

First AFN had PSAs with Michelle and Mrs. Biden talking about US "finally having an opportunity to support our military families" and now Obie telling us that being a good dad doesn't have to be hard.

And I'm wondering WTH do the Obamas know about either of those things?

The 0’s know nothing. They certainly have no clue what it means to BE an American—and that is where they under-estimate the spirit of this country and the people who ARE America.
They have ,through their evil alliances, (rev wright etc), cursed this country and all of us.
But we serve a mighty G-d.

I was just out there yesterday....A marine was KIA in Afghanistan and we escorted him from his arrival home at the airfield to the mortuary.

Glad the Wookie wasn’t there to spoil things.

I don't think this little event was about Michelle at all. It was all about creating an opportunity to film a TV commercial for Barbara Boxer who was invited to speak with Obama in front of the troops at Camp Pendleton (was this the first time Boxer was ever there?!). Fiorina is hitting Boxer on her anti-military persona and this was a publicity stunt to counter-act that.

Republican rival Carly Fiorina has challenged Boxer's legislative record on the military, and the former Hewlett-Packard CEO has tried to fire up the GOP base by circulating a video clip of the longtime senator reprimanding a general for calling her "ma'am" at a Senate hearing last year.

Fiorina's campaign manager called Boxer's appearance at Camp Pendleton rich in irony.

"The bottom line is that Barbara Boxer has shown a total disregard for our men and women in uniform, and her record on security issues is, to put it generously, dismal," Fiorina's deputy campaign manager, Julie Soderlund, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

"Today, she's getting some help yet again from the Obamas in an attempt to try to mask that over. But the facts are the facts. And the facts bite, especially for those who put their lives on the line everyday to protect this great nation."
