WASHINGTON--First Lady Michelle Obama, a tennis player, will travel to New York on Friday to tout her "Let's Move" anti obesity drive with tennis stars at the U.S. Open, all to highlight the importance of physical activity. Mrs. Obama has been spotted playing tennis at the Georgetown University indoor courts.

Can’t wait to see those bulky, overweight, thunder thighs in shorts. Maybe Obambi will be seen at courtside astride his girls’ bike wearing that bedpan on his head with that stupid grin on his face.

Ah . . . the leader of the free world and her husband.

You want to see that fat ass in a tennis skirt? You are a nut.

I thought Michelle was watching her husband read the teleprompters by looking at her watching a tennis match.

She doesn’t impress me as a jock. So this little gig is a pre-empt to something else.

But the thing is I think this is just a buying trip for thunder hips..I watched the NY news this morning and the Tennis games are canceled until the weather is better..Which the news said it was going to rain every day..Just something more to spend thousands of dollars on by running to NYC on Air Force 11..

There's something strange about the way this is stated: "Michelle Obama, a tennis player..."

Sounds sort of forced...like, they were given those words to use for the article. Why not say, Michelle Obama, who likes to play tennis occasionally...or something like that. But to call her "a tennis player,' although probably technically true, just makes it sound as though they were trying to make it seem like she has some great profession as a player, or plays all the time.

No one ever said: John Kennedy, a football player, etc. and JFK and his family certainly liked to play the game. Or, no one said, George Bush, a horse rider, etc.

It is just odd sounding to me and a strange way for a writer to connect Michelle to the game of tennis...which she has probably played only a couple of times.

Undoubtedly, she will sit with Mayor David Dinkins - another incompetent politico who LOVED tennis and never missed the U.S. Open. In fact, he got LaGuardia Airport to reroute their planes so participants didn’t get their little ears hurt.

Can’t see her being light enough on her feet for tennis.
Can you imagine the noise from her sneakers as she goes plop, plop on the court?

Remember when obama said about Sarah....”You can put lipstick on a pig but in the end you still have a pig”. He came up with that pretty quick, so he must have been thinking it of mitch-chell.

These people know how to have a party everyday on the tax payers money. The people voted for a free party for the Obama family and friends. The media seems to enjoy it!

And imagine the loud grunts you would hear coming from that large frame as she goes to hit the ball back and forth
the microphones would have to be turned down.

They would have to reinforce the court to airport runway standards if she started running around.

Boeing 747 rated.

I am sick to effin death of this wide-a$$ed loud mouth and her “anti-obesity” campaign! It’s on Nickelodeon, it’s on Disney, it’s all around school with their push for salad bars and flavored cardboard whole wheat buns! They’ve got the “Let’s Move” and now Nick is doing “The World Day of Play.” The commercial says something to the effect of, “Come play with us while we fight childhood obesity and promote healthier living!” Ummm.... stupid! How do the kids “play with” these people when they are a TV channel and more interested in kids parking their rears on the couch? The entire premise is STUPID! And annoying!

I swear, if I see her huge head and huge rear playing basketball in that ugly as sin green and yellow get-up that doesn’t even match while the kids are trying to watch a cartoon after school, I’m gonna put my foot through the damn TV.

WTF is wrong with this woman? She can’t even hide her disdain for the little white girl. It’s all over her face. What a freaking racist monster she is.

Hahaha!!! That’s a better one.....

Wonder what Perry’s wife is like? What kind of a First Lady would she be? I do know that Romney’s wife dresses with good taste. Don’t know about the other spouses.
Oh yeah! I love the Todd Palin dresses!! WooHOoo!!! he’s a hunk!!!

She'd have lots of competition from those screaming divas in pro tennis.

Only way I can watch a women's game is to turn down the sound.

I recall when Al Gore visited New Orleans (while Vice President). Whole interstate exits were blocked off.
I think if the First Lady played tennis at the Georgetown Indoor Courts no one could get in without a ticket.
