First lady visiting Boston Thursday [and Vermont]
The Boston Globe (Boston.com) ^ | June 27, 2011 5:20 PM | By Glen Johnson, Globe Staff

First lady Michelle Obama will visit Vermont for a series of events after she stops in Boston on Thursday for a fund-raiser at the Chestnut Hill home of Democratic activists Elaine and Gerald Schuster. Obama will speak at the Schusters just after noon during a luncheon that will benefit the Democratic National Committee. Its principal purpose for the next 18 months is re-electing her husband, President Obama. A previous posting about the visit is available here (second item). The first lady will fly from Boston to Burlington, Vt., where she will participate in a 3:30 p.m. “Joining Forces” event to show appreciation to the Vermont National Guard and their families. According to a White House statement, nearly 4,000 of Vermont’s 625,000 residents serve in the state’s Air and Army National Guard. In December and January, some 1,500 Vermont National Guard members came home from a one-year deployment in Afghanistan. At 5 p.m., she will speak at a DNC reception preceding a 6 p.m. committee dinner in Burlington.

KEYWORDS:
Surprisingly for the Boston Globe, reader comments are overwhelmingly against MO. For example: "She spends 10 minutes with National Guard so she can write off the cost of the fundraiser."

She’ll be visiting Marc Bulger in jail, asking for campaign donations. Then she’ll go to see Whitey Bulger for same (or whichever one is in jail or free).

Never let a trip go to waste!

Is there anything more disgusting than to hear this bag of pus and fat referred to as “the first lady”?

Whitey Bulger has been in jail for less than a week and the Chicago thugs are rolling into Boston.

The Schusters are such philanthropists! Here’s “The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism”:

If she meets Tim Thomas and the Bruins, they might let her
eat fries and fat cakes out of the Stanley Cup.

That's why I never refer to her as the F___t lady, not the least of which she is not a lady and instead is perpetually angry, bitchy, classless & petty.

My favorite name for her is "phat ass mabelle michelle". If time is running short and I need to type my comments quickly, than the abbreviated version of just plain "phatass" will suffice.

F___t lady she is not. She belongs to be in prison with her commie pig spawn mate, 0dumb0 for crimes of treason & sedition & theft from the U.S. Treasury, for the taxpayers to have to pay for all of her extravagant luxurious taxpayer funded vacations.

Obama did the same thing going to NYC. He “met” with troops back from Afghanistan to justify his fundraising trip to see “Sister Act” on Broadway with Whoopie Goldberg.
