First lady, daughter pay Oregon visit (Skipping out on Ramadan dinner?)
The Register Guard ^ | August 9, 2011 | Jack Moran

While local authorities kept mum, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama confirmed Monday that the first lady is in the Willamette Valley this week to visit her brother, Oregon State University basketball coach Craig Robinson.

An airplane carrying Michelle Obama — who is Robinson’s younger sister — touched down Monday morning at the Eugene Airport.

Semonti Stephens, the first lady’s deputy communications director, said Obama is being accompanied on the trip by one of her two daughters.

Stephens said she could not say which of the girls came to Oregon with her mother, or disclose the length of their planned stay.

“She’s on a private, family trip to meet with her brother and his family,” Stephens said.

No public appearances have been announced.

""Times like this remind us of the lesson of all great faiths, including Islam--that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us," the statement read.

Mr. Obama, Islam does not tolerate the free world...you have once more insulted Americans who love liberty and freedom - you seem to embrace all things foreign to your country and all things Muslim....what other religions do you celebrate in the White House...Hebrew seems to turn you off, how about Christianity or Catholicism? You did entertain the Dalia Lama a few weeks back.....but didn't you have to let him come and go via the back door? A bit curious don't you think....?

Easy to despise the current illegal occupier of the White Hut and his family!

I wonder how many times Coach Robinson has visited the WH? Not complaining, mind you, just curious.

Obama is taking all the Ram-adama-ding-dong folks to Micky-D’s tonight.

She’s probably a political advisor.

The requirement for Michele Obama to scream, “I see GOD!” every time they do the Ramadan-a ding-dong may finally be getting a little old.

On a similar thread, somebody mentioned that the college got $20 mil in stim money to keep the coaching brother from losing his job.

You gotta admit the Baraqqis studied hard at the Chicago School of Political Corruption.

It’s true. Although, in Craig Robinson’s defense, Oregon State has been a lousy basketball program for 20 years.

The details of Michelle Obama’s trip to see her brother in Corvallis are being kept from the public.

Because it is a PR nightmare!

‘________from losing his job.’

Not sure about that - gotta check Truth or Fiction.

Good thing for Craigbacca that his team doesn’t have to win because if they did, he would been fired a long time ago.

I loathe Oregon State, as I’m an Oregon Duck grad, but Robinson did not keep his job because of stimulus money. There are plenty of things to disagree with and complain about with that bill; making up things doesn’t help that cause.

No matter how you look at it, Moochell is a pant-load and a plane-load. It takes a lot of fuel to fly this fatso around this nation and the world.

I find the description of the plane odd. I guess the implication is it was not AF-1. Just strange, IMO.

I wonder if her brother has room for MO’s staff and secret service and cars and red carpets or if the entire ritz was just bought?

Or he told her she and the kids would have to cover their heads.

“Who am I? Prissy? I’m not wearing a rag on my head and bowing and scraping to a bunch of smelly old pirates. I’m going to Oregon where I can walk around without looking like the laundry. “

Are you denying they got $26 million in stim, or that it was connected to Robinson’s job?
