Barack makes a fool of Michelle in public
The American Thinker ^ | 8-14-13 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 08/14/2013 7:33:59 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

I am actually experiencing a new emotion: empathy for Michelle Obama. It's bad enough when an ordinary husband makes his wife look like a fool in public, but when the husband is the most visible man in America, the sting is all the more intense.

Yesterday, Michelle released the news that she is making a cameo appearance in a video featuring "a hip-hop song recorded to encourage kids from minority groups to take care of their bodies."

One of the songs on that album is titled “Pass The Rock”. I’m still trying to find out if that is simply a remake of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “Constipation Blues”.

During a rainy day on Tuesday, he traveled to Nancy's in scenic Oak Bluffs for a fried lunch. According to the pool report: "POTUS's food order at Nancy's was fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and french fries."

No sympathy for the First Wookie here.

BTW I wonder if we will ever have a president and first lady who have the interests of all Americans at heart, not just the segment they most closely relate to personally or politically.

They definitely are fools, in the biblical sense.
They are obviously humanists, because they think they have the answers in their superior human capacity.

Seems to me they both compete actively to see who will make the biggest fool of themselves.

Sorry, libs, your your president and wife-wench are losers...big losers...supreme losers.

They have no class, no intelligence, no morals, and no ability to do anything.

Put Clarance Thomas/Walter Williams/Thomas Sowell/Condi Rice there if you want intelligence, style, and class.

The hip-hop video is particularly aimed at African-American children, a group which suffers even worse obesity rates than the rest of the American population

Wait, I thought they were starving. She wants to build more grocery stores in their food desert neighborhoods which will increase their obesity. Maybe she should crack down on schools in their neighborhoods from feeding them free meals during the school year and throughout the summer.

Thomas Lifson thinks that because Barry ordered “fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and french fries” that this is public humiliation for Moochelle .... and he feels sorry for her? Surely he jests and this is satire.

Barry’s ‘vacation diet’ is no more than “do what we say, not what we do” ..... sort of like Congress exempting itself from Obamacare. Barry and the Mooch are exempted from the dietary guidelines they are trying to impose on the sheeple. Last time I looked, school districts were incurring vasts amounts of expense and wasted food because the kids won’t eat what Mooch says they should eat .... plus they are hungry all the time. Also, the latest “musical/dance” foray by Mooch is nothing more than self-agrandizement ... just like Barry, any excuse to hobnob with the ‘popular peeps’ and get your mug in front of a camera.

This writer is a moron. Bozo is on vacation, let him have his onion rings. To equate that with making a "fool" out of his wife is a ridiculous stretch. I really can't stand food nazi's, especially when they force ME to have empathy for Obama.

"Slow news day?"

This is a manufactured story, the kind of faux "gotcha" story that libs create about conservatives like Sarah Palin or George Bush. The headline is very misleading - just because Obama ordered fried food for lunch does not mean he was "publically humiliating" his wife. I can't stand Obama or his wife, but there are plenty of real things to criticize them for without "reaching" like this story does.

Even “toothpicks” can have health issues from bad eating and/or hereditary. My FIL and his 7 siblings all were/are thin and all had high cholesterol.
But I do know what you are trying to say. :)

I wouldn’t worry about Barry having a heart attack though, he doesn’t have a heart.

Didn't ABC's "Racial Politics Expert" Julianne Malveaux wish a death from heart disease on Justice Clarence Thomas?

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2008/01/15/abcs-race-expert-woman-who-longed-death-clarence-thomas

On November 4, 1994, Malveaux famously stated of Supreme Court Justice Thomas: "I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease....He is an absolutely reprehensible person."

"POTUS's food order at Nancy's was fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and french fries."

On many occasions, she has been seen chowing down on foods that are not high on the nutrition scale.

She is more of a 'do as I say, not as I do' type of person.

And there is a word for that.

So eating the food he prefers publicly embarrasses his big-butted Wookie wife?! If so, that is Moochelle’s personal problem. And it is one I could not care less about.

What I do care about is her insinuation into everyone else’s children's diets. That is an outrage which should never be tolerated.

Michelle Obama is a pig feeding at any free trough she can find. It shows. And We The People are paying for it.

AFAICT Hussein has two and only two redeemable qualities.

I believe he truly loves his daughters. And he’s not exactly obese.

Honestly, he could afford to put on a pound or two. So what if he eats fried oysters? Aren’t we overthinking this just a bit?
