First lady Michelle Obama hugs entire U.S. basketball team after win over France
Yahoo Sports Olympics ^ | 7/29/12 | Dan Devine | Fourth-Place Medal

Posted on 07/29/2012 2:03:11 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

What better way to celebrate a dominant opening to group play at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London than with a hug from the first lady of the United States?

After the final buzzer of their 98-71 win over France on Sunday, members of the U.S. men's national basketball team shook hands with their vanquished opposition, gathered at center court for a brief cheer, then walked off the court to a rousing ovation from the fans at the Basketball Arena in London. Before they headed back to the locker room, though, they took a quick left and headed straight for Michelle Obama — President Barack Obama's wife, who greeted the full U.S. athletic delegation on Friday — who was seated in the front row to take in the action.

Is she going to be there for the entire Olympics?

Is NBC using the Olympics as one big Hussein infomercial?

She’s hoping if this White House thing doesn’t work out she can be one of the Basketball Wives. She’d fit right in if you know what I mean.

I knew she was one BIG woman, but I didn't realize her arms were long enough to do that. :-)

The left just had an orgasm!

. . . is a hug better or worse than a terrorist fist bump?

So, from the American media perspective, this whole Olympic extravaganza turns out to be just a multi-million dollar vehicle to showcase Michelle Obama.

- See Michelle's fabulously expensive new wardrobe (and check out the toned arms).

- Watch as Michelle struts her stuff with the Royal family.

See how the dazzling Michelle shows up Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

- Watch as Michelle wows the wrestling team.

- Michelle smiles.

- Michelle shows off her hairy armpit.

- Basketball team wins? So what - look at Michelle!

She's drunk! No doubt about it.

That's a sight bartenders and bouncers hate to see, a drunken unattached woman acting out. And a drunken woman with near absolute power is the absolute worst. That player in the lower right looks like the Moose's display ruined the sweetness of the team's victory.

These pix are going to be scrubbed PDQ

Reminds me of the time that retard Biden ambushed the winners of the Little League World Series for a photo op on the field in Williamsport within seconds of the last out.

Marxists have no class, and no shame.

Yes. and Yes. Far easier for the network to shill for politicians than to do any real investigative reporting (”journalism”).

Let's not forget John Kerry rushing to Paris to inject himself into Lance Armstrong's epic win at the Tour de France.

I wouldn’t want to get my ear that close to all of those teeth. She might pull a Mike Tyson.

By the way, were all the white boys, I only saw one and the coach.

Another thing, Professional ball players don’t belong in the Olympics.

“By the way, were all the white boys, I only saw one and the coach.”

can someone explain to me why no one has ever filed a reverse discrimination complaint against the NBA and the NFL for not having the requisite percentage of caucasians on their teams?

“It” just couldn’t resist an excuse to spend taxpayer money overseas.

“It” is as large as those Basketball Players. “It” should be on the court helping the USA Team...would fit right in with the rest of the players.

And Olympic/International Skeet is a much tougher game than American Skeet. Birds are thrown at 60 mph instead of 45, gun butt must be below the hip until the bird is visible (not mounted on shoulder prior to calling for bird).

It’s nice to see Michelle having another one of those “proud to be an American” moments.

Let’s hope she doesn’t mouth “All this for a Flag?” during the Awards Ceremony if the US gets the Gold.

That's the equivalent of putting a sow's ear in a silk purse.

In this case it's just a pig in a silk jacket.
