Ah hem, did Michele ever look at her figure?

I mean beyond her arms that people gush over?

Her bottom or her thighs? Me thinks it is a pit shot at Christie.

Liberals are NOTORIOUS for being PETTY and LOW.

There is no low too low for a liberal.

Hypocrisy doesn’t matter to them either.

My Daddy lost his job and my Mommy’s employer can’t provide health insurance anymore. We’re going to be foreclosed next month and Mrs. Obama is here to tell me I should eat more veggies and move around more?

Oh Gracious God!!

Her cause reminds of a grade school assignment where every student has several days to come up with a subject for a project and she did hers at the last moment.

She reminds me of Al Gore, and his self-appointed expertise in climatology.

I’d be embarrassed to go around discussing a topic in which I have no training.

No first lady was ever elected to any office. While it is OK for them to advocate things that cost the Treasury nothing it is not their place to spend of penny of taxpayer money. Ever!

My, the nerve. I saw a pic on Hillbuzz of her in an orange and white get up...I think they called it her creamsicle look. There was a group of people behind her and they were all looking at her arse. The next pic showed her from the rear view. MY WORD! That dress was so tight and clingy, you could see the entire outline of her caboose. To top it off, she has on one of those tiny sweaters that was spirited away from little Sashimi or Malaria's closet. I will never understand why she wants to highlight her little chest and huge behind. Does she honestly think this is a fashion statement? Got to hand it to her, though...she did give up the boob belts.

She’s overweight by maybe 40 - 50 lbs. She certainly does not weigh 300 lbs.

Anyone remember the movie star expert craze, a few yrs ago when an actor or actress was in a movie about something they suddenly became expert witnesses about whatever the movie was about. I can remember a few of them even testifying in court.
This makes me think of that just because you are a government something or other doesn’t make you an expert about anything.

Man, I have absolutely NO taste whatsoever when it comes to fashion. And cattiness is usually far beneath me. But that picture makes Mooch-elle look like a complete frump.

Not "professionally attired" or "fashionable" or even "daring/risky". Just a middle aged frump. Looks like something someone would wear to go grocery shopping on Wednesday night....instead of representing the country.

What a national embarrassment.

FLOTUS has the biggest booty call (and smallest boobs even with a boob belt) of recent record. I recommend that she seriously consider someone with taste select her clothes. Her high style outfits only serve to AMPLIFY her physical deficiencies. She is a national embarrassment.

And you know, her body is what it is. Mine ain't what it was at 21, either. But if I was on a national stage, representing our entire country, I'd at least make an effort to look decent.

You'd think that someone (the WH has legions of people that handle stuff like this) would take her aside and quietly say "Let's make some wardrobe changes. No, really. Right now."

Heck, even Hillary managed to look moderately professional in her pantsuit attire. Moochelle just looks like a dowdy housewife.

I don’t have a problem with this because, at least from my experience with school lunches, something should be done. I’d prefer it be done on a local level than a federal one, but something should be done. When I was in school in ancient times, we had balanced, nutritious lunches that tasted good too. In my son’s public school, their idea of an entree is nachos, and their idea of nachos is corn chips with melted cheese drizzled on them. No meat, no tomatoes, nothing else; just that. This year, they’ve gone the more-nutritional route, and they wind up with stuff that isn’t necesarily palatable to kids. My son reported a “disgusting piece of chicken with some kind of sauce on it” that, he says, nobody ate. It all went into the garbage. So much for the public schools’ concern that “this is the only meal a lot of kids get.” Of course kids always have the option of bringing something from home, which my son does most of the time. But if they’re going to provide lunch at school, what is keeping them from doing it right? They did it right in the ‘60’s in my school district. What is stopping them now?

Wealthy enclaves in New Jersey have been in the forefront of healthy school food initiatives.

The costs have been obscenely expensive, the results have been poor, and the local produce farmers who signed up for the pilot projects are being trated like slave labor.

There has been no longitudinal studies published yet in NJ, so I have no idea if the programs work

ALso like to point out that the Newark New Jersey Public SChool system is a recipient of Aboott Decision wealth redistribution scheme imposed by the New Jersey Supreme Court and the school district has lost hundreds of millions of dollars through Court decision based frauds and scamas and mismangement.

THe Healthy foods initiative that is running inside the Newark SChool System is NOT being paid for by Newark residents and businesses, it is almost fully subsidized by the rest of New Jersey’s taxpayers while the SUpreme Court has forced the State to remove all school funding to many middle and upper class towns. And many of those middle class towns have the same school lunch food vendors as Newark had BEFORE the healthy foods initiative. BUt because these towns are paying upwards of 30% of their property taxes to subisdize Newark, the kids in those towns are still eating the same junk that the kids in Newark no longer have to suffer.
Gov Christie has vowed to put an end to this.

Michelle Obama is nuts to come into NJ and think she’s going to get good publicity out of this, she just stepped into the Abbott Decision controversy, one of the few reasons that could turn NJ into a Republican state at state level politics.


However, there is a problem here:
Add the fact that 15%+ of the school age population of Newark is illegal, legal or children of illegal aliens.

Top federal prosecutor in NJ: Being undocumented not a crime
AP, April 28, 2008

DOVER, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s top federal prosecutor told a Latino group it’s a civil offense — not a crime — for immigrants to live in the country without proper documentation, a comment that a spokesman later said was aimed at a narrowly worded question.

U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie, widely considered to be a leading GOP contender for governor next year, spoke Sunday in response to a question on illegal immigration at an open forum that grew heated. He said living in the U.S. without immigration paperwork is “an administrative matter” that federal immigration officials are supposed to address through deportation.

“Don’t let people make you believe that that’s a crime that the U.S. attorney’s office should be doing something about,” Christie was quoted as saying in The Star-Ledger of Newark for Monday editions. “It is not.”


SO Christie pretends to be tough on fiscal issues while allowing an invading immigrant horde to take over the state and drain the gov budgets through the social safety net system while Michelle Obama sweeps into town promising better quality bread for the migrants children, and I guess that leaves Barack Obama as the circus of hope and change.
