A Chesterfield County elementary school in Virginia rejected First Lady Michelle Obama’s request to speak on Thursday, citing school policy.

Tim Bullis, the school division’s community relations director, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that School Board policy 6100 prohibits “the use of school facilities during the school day for political purposes.”

Jim Holland, the only Democrat on the school board, said the school board’s denial would be appropriate if the Obama campaign’s request was for a political event, but the board could have allowed Michelle Obama to speak if the request had been for an event designated as “non-political” or “official.”

Heh. Are the wheels falling off the bus?

This is the third time in the last month the Obama campaign has been denied use of a venue the campaign would have preferred in Virginia. The University of Virginia rejected the Obama campaign’s request to use its Charlottesville campus for a campaign event and the owner of the “Crumb And Get It” bakery rejected a request by Vice President Joe Biden’s staff to use the store for a campaign event because the owner disagreed with Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment.

There is nothing “nonpolitical” or “unofficial” about Michele Obama’s trying to be the “Mommy Czar” of America.

She’s had more vacations in one year than I have had in 20, but I paid for mine by myself.

Remember: She does it “the Chicago Way”.

We really need to REJECT Obama’s bid for a second term of destruction.
If America’s stupid enough to elect him again then I’m just about done.

Anytime “Big Moma” goes out or speaks in public IS, repeat IS a political event. That shelf ass never does anything that doesn’t get attention.

I will be soooooooooooooooo happy when the two of them are gone!

Problem is they will never be gone.

Bill Clinton has proven that to us.

Like the skunks they are, when they leave their scent lingers.

Fine. Let her come November 10.
