First lady flexes muscles
The Hill ^ | May 24, 2014 | Amie Parnes

Posted on 05/25/2014 10:14:21 AM PDT by yoe

First lady Michelle Obama is more aggressively wading into policy fights while expanding her portfolio.

Six years into the Obama administration, the first lady has gone to bat on issues outside her bailiwick in the East Wing.

[snip] Most notably, earlier this month, she spoke out on the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls......

[snip] She also made a rare foray into Capitol Hill politics earlier this week when House Republicans threatened to rollback the school lunch programs......

[snip] The first lady’s more public role in politics goes beyond Boko Haram and the fight over school lunches.

[snip] the first lady is “deeply concerned about what she’s seeing” with regard to the proposed spending bill and wants to ensure that Republicans on the Hill aren’t “overruling” the work that’s been done for school meals.

Mr. Obama seems "detached"....Benghazi, IRS, NSA, VA mess, Obamacare...deadly foreign policys damaging America and so many more Obama issues spoiling like so much fruit left to rot.....so Hi-Life Michelle, the most expensive 1st woman ever steps in covering for her husband who is tired of the job and is currently out of the country....Michelle sees the minority children, not as American children but the off-spring of her 'help-less" race and is making an expensive demand they eat their vegetables...seems to me that is the parents role...she doesn't even take care of the White House vegetable garden, she has a staff who does that except for the rare photo-opt of her with a ripe veggie in her hand.

One could argue that it takes managerial skill to run a plantation. But, oh, the irony.

expanding her portfolio.

I've heard of a minister without portfolio.
The wookie seems to have a portfolio -- but no Constitutional right to do a darn thing. But that's not stopping her.

The U.S.A. (between elections, so far) has become more of a monarchy than Britain, Canada, and the other 14 members of the Commonwealth Realm.

Has the Worst Lady ever been seen with either of their water spaniels, picking up after them or walking them? I think the family ate them as part of somje sort of “grifter” secret initiation.

You know damn well she loves standing on the balcony and watching all those white people work her garden.

If her "portfolio" expands much further, she'll need to develop more muscles to carry it…

yoe:" Six years into the Obama administration, the first lady has gone to bat on issues outside her bailiwick in the East Wing

When 'hashtag' on twitter becomes our most effective foreign policy, I am concerned.

[snip]" She also made a rare foray into Capitol Hill politics earlier this week when House Republicans threatened to rollback the school lunch programs.."

The children are already throwing away their luches , not eating them, so the 'free-market' consumeers have decided that this program is CRAP !

"[snip] The first lady’s more public role in politics goes beyond Boko Haram and the fight over school lunches."
Interesting that this adminsiration has supported Islam, Sharia , and SLAVERY .. AND THEN GET UPSET 20 DAYS AFTER IT HITS THE MEDIA ! The State Dept. has refused to declare BOKO Haram as a TERRORIST ORGNIZATION for over 3 years .
Too little , too late !!

[snip] the first lady is “deeply concerned about what she’s seeing” with regard to the proposed spending bill and wants to ensure that Republicans on the Hill
aren’t “overruling” the work that’s been done for school meals.
The kids have voted. Most of the healthy meals are already in the trash. So much food is wasted, that schools are bailing out of the program due to $$ losses

In a few years, all this will be called “her vast foreign policy experience”. Just wait and see, she’s padding her resume for a run at the office.

She held up a sign and had a sad look on her face. Yeah, she's really developing some extensive foreign policy skills.

Fireone:".. she’s padding her resume for a run at the office."

I am not surprized claiming this as expierience.
At this rate , she has more demonstrated expierence (at failure)than the next most likely Demorat nominee.
So far , the only successful female Demorat nominee is Nazi Pelousey , who has baggage too !

The Left quite easily decided that Hillary was Presidential material for just being the First Lady. Despite her vast criminal background.

I know this is a photoshopped composite, but it tells a story.

Anyone remember seeing a headline like this (or even close!) when either of the Bush wives were FL's?

I don't either.

Our local Sunday paper had a picture today of “the staff” tending her garden - a National Park service employee in full uniform picking weeds. In other words we are paying for her to have a prop garden.
