LONDON (AP) -- Michelle Obama played a little tennis with kids, handed out some hugs and posed for photos with strapping athletes Friday as she formally began her stint leading the U.S. Olympics delegation.

I am sure the world’s finest athletes relished the advice. Without it, they would never be able to compete in their sports.

Barack Obama’s off-teleprompter speech to the Gold Medal winners:

You didn’t win that medal. Someone else won it for you.

Well, at least it’s not completely crazy, unlike the Obama’s invasion of India. This Olympic trip is a reasonable event for a 1st Lady.

Why on earth would we have to pay for Michelle Obama going all the way over to London for the Summer Olympics?

Can you imagine the outrage of the Leftist Media if Laura Bush had used taxpayer money to go to the 2008 Summer Olympics is Beijing?

Twinkie’s wookie is playing world traveler again, happy to let Obama have a gay vacation from her. The fags at the White House are thrilled.

What is she trying to prove? Maybe she should spend more time trying to be a little less arrogant and more respectful. And please pull up your britches they are drooping.

I know women like her who try to prove they are better at sports, etc. than their children and 'friends'. They usually end up making fools of themselves.

What is it with the crotch on those pants? Doesn’t it seem to be a bit low? Ball room?
