Michelle Obama’s posterior again the subject of a public rant (Alabama FB Coach on School Lunches)
Washington Post ^ | Published: February 5 | Krissah Thompson

Posted on 02/04/2013 8:57:38 PM PST by drewh

They’re at it again.

The latest public rant against Michelle Obama’s effort to promote low-calorie school lunches was recently caught on tape in Alabama — the usual protest against the federal government meddling in local business. And then it quickly found its way around to the first lady’s posterior.

“Fat butt Michelle Obama,” said Bob Grisham, a high school football coach who was surreptitiously recorded by one of his students. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

Grisham, who was suspended Monday, is neither the first nor the most high-profile person to feel moved to comment on the first lady’s physique. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly called her Michelle “My Butt” Obama. And Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, the Wisconsin Republican, issued an apology after he was caught commenting on her “large posterior.” (Grisham has also said he misspoke.)

Michelle Obama obviously is not the first first lady to be subjected to criticism for the way she looks. Hillary Clinton was accused of having “cankles” — slang for chubby ankles. One of her predecessors was immortalized in song by the group Mission of Burma: “I’m haunted by the freakish size of Nancy Reagan’s head /No way that thing came with that body.”

But what is it with Michelle Obama’s critics and the fixation with her derriere?

Hilary! didn't go around demanding other people shrink their ankles. Nancy didn't go around demanding other people shrink their heads. Michelle, "my butt" goes around demanding other people diet.

That's why. She's a hypocrite.

Well, if her butt didn't have its own gravitational field exerting a pull on neighboring planets, I suppose there would be fewer grounds for complaint. :-)

Yes, he does. I think the writer might be lying a little to get Limbaugh’s name in the article.

The fixation on Moochie’s butt is because it's 4 feet 8.5 inches wide (U.S. Standard Rail Gage). U.S. SRG is the width of two Roman chariot horses butts. Somehow, that is appropriate for Moochie.

I’ll bet Rogers & Hammerstein never imagined anything like Moochelle when they wrote for “SOUTH PACIFIC”: “My doll is as dainty as a sparrow; Her figure is something to applaud. Where she’s narrow she’s narrow as an arrow. And she’s BROAD...where a BROAD...should be B-R-O-A-D!”

Her caboose is a region of space time that prevents anything, including light, from escaping?
It’s particularly galling to read of school kids complaining of not getting enough to eat, then to see her stuffing her face with junk.

When Michelle Obama goes camping, the bears hide THEIR FOOD in the trees.

While she rested on a beach in Hawaii, several members of Greenpeace tried to push Michelle back into the water.

If Michelle’s butt gains just 5 more pounds, it will be given it’s own Zip code.

LOL, funniest posts on this thread that I've seen here in a while.

But seriously, folks.

Has anyone considered the possibility that Mooch-elle might just have an eating disorder? (And she might be compensating by forcing kids to eat stringbeans?)

I have no special knowledge (luckily), this is just a suspicion that I've developed from a few un-fun years of observation.

WashPost’s Krissah Thompson Gives Readers Distorted Picture of Fight Over Voter ID Laws

By Ken Shepherd | June 07, 2012 | 17:20
 

In today’s 16-paragraph page A6 story, “Legal challenges tie up new voting restrictions,”* the Washington Post’s Krissah Thompson reported that many “[s]tricter ID laws and other controversial voting restrictions” could be held up in the courts until after November election.

At no point in her story, however, did Thompson note recent polling shows 70 percent of Americans back photo ID for voting. What’s more, while Thompson noted Obama/Holder Justice Department staffers are working to thwart “an effort by Florida’s Republican secretary of state to remove noncitizens from voter registration lists, saying it is illegal to conduct such a purge this close to an election,” she failed to note that in this instance, it may well be the Obama administration that is violating federal law by refusing to assist Florida officials.

Why Americans care about the Obamas

As President Obama took the stage to deliver his acceptance speech on the night of his reelection, his younger daughter nudged his arm. He bent down to listen to 11-year-old Sasha. “Behind you,” she mouthed. The president nodded and promptly turned to wave to the supporters at his back.

No kidding, she is the biggest hypocrite I have known of. I remember during the 2008 campaign, somebody posted her room service bill for her “snack” of two whole lobsters, caviar and champagne which she consumed during a couple of hour stay at a hotel. I would not comment on her a$$ weighing more than Barrack if she had not started telling other people how to eat while eating like a pig herself.

IIRC, Limbaugh refers to the First Lady as “Michelle, Ma Bell,” not “My Butt.” I always saw the reference as to the Beatles’ song “Michelle.” These libs LIE and no one ever, ever calls them on it.

"...But what is it with Michelle Obama’s critics and the fixation with her derriere?"

You have it exactly right. Most people couldn't care less about her butt. The problem is, she, her husband, and people exactly like them, are trying to legislate everything in our lives down to how much electricity we can use, how much water we can flush down our toilet, what kind of light bulbs we can use, what we are allowed to THINK, and most applicable, what we are allowed to eat.

It's funny, to liberals, hypocrisy is the greatest crime of all. But here we are, a person who shouldn't be involved in anything that would bring attention to her physique, telling other people how to lose weight and how to eat healthy.

It's galling, and that's why people point this dichotomy out. Our freedoms are being taken away in so many ways, our elected officials are no longer responsive to us, we are cut off.

What it comes down to, is that we fight back in any way that we can.

What has been missed here is that a High School Football coah has been suspended for saying Michelle Obama has a fat ass.

Is this country so in love with the Wide Load that we suspend High school Football coach’s for that?

Certainly the First Amendment and it;s usage may have consequences, but this is friggin ridiculous.

Why not just send him to the guillotine?

Where is the Barf Alert, as this article needed it. Moochelle has a fat ass, no fashion sense at all and her new hair cut with the bangs reminds me of Moe from the Three Stooges. But of course with the libs, they fall all over them selves praising and worshiping whoever they get elected. The last prominent female on the democrat side that I can this of this morning that had any style and fashion sense was Jackie O.

“Grisham, who was suspended Monday,”

Conservatives need to pack the school board meeting to the rafters, find out who suspended the coach and get him/her/it fired for violating his constitutional rights.

Correct. He calls her "Michelle My Belle" which is how Sir Paul McCartney (former dope head, perpetual dope) called her a the White Hut.

It is another of MediaMatter's drive by LIES.

Limbaugh Repeatedly Calls First Lady "Michelle, My Butt ...

mediamatters.org/research/2010/12/14/limbaugh...calls.../174359

Dec 14, 2010 – Limbaugh Attacks "Michelle, My Butt" For "Talking About Nutrition." On the October 18 edition of his radio show, Rush Limbaugh said: ...

Those who "fact check" using George Soros' socialist front are Red Dupes and deserve to be shunned worse that Joe McCarthy was.

I love that picture.

Shows the difference between two ladies with a little refinement, and Moochelle. Makes her look like a Russian hod-carrier.

I'm far from a fashion maven. And, I'm hardly the picture of High-Class Refinement. However, I know enough to realize what looks good, and what doesn't. And, I'm also smart enough to know that if I had 100 cameras trained on my every move, I'd need to take a few minutes to learn a little culture. At least enough to fool some of the people, some of the time. :-)

You'd think that with an entire army of White House critters, all dedicated to making the presidency look good, there would be one or two who'd take her aside and say "You know, THIS would be a better look for you. And Here, have a half-dozen lessons in etiquette and deportment."

The fact that Moochelle has declined to take advantage of what, frankly, people would beg for the opportunity to give her.....speaks volumes about her intelligence and character, IMHO.
