Chicago, Ill. - On her swing through her hometown of Chicago to kick off a new school program related to her Lets Move fitness campaign, Michelle Obama spoke frankly about her role as the first black first lady, and her value as a role model to kids from struggling communities.
Asked by reporters during a small round table, that included theGrio, how she responds to the instant sensation created by everything from her wardrobe choices to her hair, Mrs. Obama said anyone in her position would face that spotlight. But she said she also recognized that she and President Obama are different.
I think were first and were new in this modern-day culture because were a young couple. We have young kids. We grew up with limited means, Mrs. Obama said. Our stories are the stories of so many kind of voiceless, faceless people families just like mine whose parents went to work and told them to do well in school. And they went to college, and theyre making a good life for themselves. And theyre black...

I thought Mr. Obama went to private boarding school and a Muslim parochial school, or did I hear wrong? Then on to Occidental and Harvard. And didn't Mrs. Obama attend Princeton? And it sure seems to be working, huh? Crime is so far down in Chicago and other Democratic-run cities that there's talk of disbanding the police departments...
Who are the bigger Grifters, the Clintons? Or the Obamas?
Obama’s are one up ... they had affirmative action on their side.
Yes, they did not grow up with limited means. Both are from upper middle or upper class backgrounds. But the MSM will never point this out, or question what Michelle Obama is saying about this.
It’s hard to tell and can you imagine what those girls are going to turn out like? The Clinton daughter didn’t do so well.
Yeah? Prove it.
i don’ t care about race or color. i care about the ideas and agendas of whoever’s president.
Race obsessed hypocrites. There is no appeal for this family of marxist loons
They aren’t really that young. They just waited to have the political accessories (children) until they were well into midlife.
She is right.
Their being black is the only reason they are there.
the way they both spend taxpayers money is an insult to poor working American who know what it really is to live on limited means...
her two daughter are totally spoiled brats and will never know what it is to struggle to get by...I bet they both put in their meal orders daily like they are fine dining daily...
both obama’s are liars...they lie so much they believe their lies...they both make me physically ill...
if I survive another year, I'm going to begin a count down on the days we have to tolerate them..

She talks as if she had it so bad growing up because money was tight but her parents were married and working and she seems to have lived in a fairly safe neighborhood. If you’ve got that and your health your life isn’t hard - you’ve got a good life.
Her parents were married and she and Obama have stayed married and her brother has been married, divorced and remarried, but all his children were born within marriage.
That’s what matters - not the money.
OK, I had to just click and look. Whew, what disgusting adoration of the cultist in chief.
Then I noticed something very peculiar about the photos of all the people on that web site. After a while, it dawned on me...there's not a white person to be seen. The "About" section explains why: "TheGrio.com is the first video-centric news community site devoted to providing African Americans with stories and perspectives that appeal to them but are underrepresented in existing national news outlets."
Kind of like FR, in a way..."providing Freedom-Loving Americans with stories and perspectives that appeal to them but are underrepresented in existing national news outlets."
Biggest historical mistakes and worst national tragedies in America’s History. The national and financial damage will take generations, if ever, to undo and fix. How could this unending horror show happen, twice?
“Her parents were married and she and Obama have stayed married and her brother has been married, divorced and remarried, but all his children were born within marriage.
Thats what matters - not the money.”
She and Barack do not share your middle class values. They are not grateful for what they had growing up, instead they hate those who had more and now that they have power are determined to punish those who have more. They conspicuously live a life of luxury yet still want more. They manifest a twisted entitlement mindset that affects millions in our society from the fourth generation welfare parasites, to the pampered tenured academics at elite institutions, to the traders on Wall Street who make billions churning the retirement savings of the middle class.
Ironically they love money and power, not people. They have no love for their nation, no love for God, no love for their fellow man, and given their separate vacations seem to have no love for each other. These are two people who accomplished nothing constructive in their lives prior to moving into the White House. Their lives are about taking, not giving. These are empty souls who demand to be adored and showered with gifts for just being alive.
Liberals would call you a racist for that statement. Those who are indifferent to skin color and judge candidates by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin are racists. Those who voted for Obama because he's black are not racist in the liberal mindset. The sad thing is they don't see any irony or contradiction in their views.
