First lady set for media blitz to promote new book
Politico44 ^ | 5/23/12 | ENNIFER EPSTEIN

First lady Michelle Obama will launch her latest media blitz next week with a string of TV appearances to promote her book on gardens.

Obama is set to appear Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "The View," and Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the White House said Wednesday. She'll also tape an interview for "LIVE! with Kelly" while in New York next Wednesday and an appearance on the "Rachael Ray Show" is set to air next Thursday.

Obama's book, "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America," is being released Tuesday after several production delays that pushed its publication date back from earlier this year. The book includes a history of White House vegetable gardens reaching back to Eleanor Roosevelt's Victory Garden and also takes a look at gardens across the country.

The only thing this thing knows about Gardening comes from the grounds crew and her cook and a few kids she hires to show up for photo shoots! What a laugh!

OMG, so many people have been gardening, succesfully I might add, I was before Michelle was out of diapers.. and now we need this person to tell us how to garden.. she should go to wal mart and buy a couple of bags of manure.. and spread it around.. it would go good with her BS

I want to know how she took a spot of grass, pulled it up, turned over a couple of spades of dirt and three months later had a full harvest of a variety of vegetables (summer and winter). I mean the woman has a golden touch, she alone could solve the world hunger problem.

I thinks the ‘O’s are trying to stuff their pockets as much as they can before they are kicked out of the WH

Making hay while the sun shines, so to speak!

Just another excuse for the Obamas to be on television again and again. They appear on practically every show imaginable. It is all part of the 2012 campaign.

No doubt about that.
His product isn’t selling as good as her’s
so she puts out the promos.

She should have called her book...
Collective Farming at the White House
and other Institutions across the country.

People despise Barack because he is a petty, vindictive, incompetent poser. This “book tour” is a softer sell for the political campaign because most swing voters don’t have strong feelings either way about her. I hope it fails in humanizing Barack Obama.

"If I picked one favorite, favorite food, it’s French fries," Mrs. Obama told a group of delighted University of Cape Town students in Fuller Hall. "Okay? It’s French fries. I can’t stop eating them.

Anything with her in the title has a presumed barf alert... for any of a gazillion reasons.

I think they featured her garden grown veggies at a “state dinner” three weeks after planting. I saw gardeners planting mature plants during a news clip. that’s how she(they) did it.

I wonder if she supports diversity in her gardens. Does she allow parasitic weeds to take over her garden? After all diversity is good (only if it is their diversity).

She’ll go on these shows to push her vegetable gardening book, but she’ll be counting the seconds until she can leave each studio, swing by Whattaburger, and get some junk food to stuff down her throat.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #8,743 in Books

Not too good it seems for a “major book” that will be released in a week.

I would love to debate this person on prime time TV...

Hubby and I have a nice size garden on our property...and it is full time work...

Funny how this woman just thinks she is #1 on ALL topics...no matter what...wondering if she has ever done any family laundry, cooking, clean up, baking...the average things a REAL wife does???

You mean, like, chores? I doubt she’s ever done anything practical around the house, not to mention anything that resembles real work.
