First lady Michelle Obama meets with military spouses from all five branches of the armed services on behalf of the Democratic Party at the Army National Guard facility in Cranston, R.I.
She looks just a tad different than she did in Target yesterday. 🙂 Absolutely beautiful either way tho.
I’m starting to think the First Lady should run for President in 2016. One can dream, right?
That would be great, wouldn’t it? But the only “run” she’ll probably be thinking about, after these eight years, is back to Chicago!
Maybe not, though … 🙂
FLOTUS is not really a politician. Her girls will be at an age when they will need her most!
As much as the right wing despises her, she might as well be. Wingers like Michelle Malkin have been threatened by her since day one.
That Malkin thing doesn’t even deserve to have the same name as our wonderful First Lady.
Truth be told they envy her…FLOTUS is one of a kind!
I was encouraged to see all the groups that are supporting the AJA.
Organizations Respond to President Obama’s Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction
ah now that is heartening isn’t it?
Great! Don’t forget the Steelworker’s Union:)
Another Mayor endorses AJA
Mayor of Cincinnati: Citizens Are “Very Excited” about American Jobs Act
Outgoing Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon endorses the American Jobs Act.
🙂 But the key word is “outgoing” We need to elect Greg Stanton!!!
Those excited Cincinnati citizens had better pressure their Congress people to pass the bill. Then they can start rallying the troops to re-elect the president. Not enough to be passively excited, they need to jump in and help. Get going Cincinnati and deliver Ohio to the president.
I was wondering where the coverage of our beautiful FLOTUS was. Thanks Chips!
nothing can make this day go bad.Have a good afternoon;evening and night TOD family and thank you
The Carnival Barker’s Suits Debut and Are Already 70% Off (okay I added the Carnival Barker part 😀 )😉
Good rest to you, Fred!!
LOL @ the suits. His shirts were on sale @ Burlington Coat Factory this summer for $12.99…
When I think of Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” (how did that work out?) and Barbara Bush’s “Beautify America” (plants in every pot) and Laura Bush’s “Literacy” initiative (while schools flailed without funding and libraries shortened their hours) I can’t think of a single First Lady who has made this much of an impact of real people’s lives. From fighting for the Food Safety Act and getting grocery stores into poor neighborhoods where there were no options for wholesome foods, to all the legislation that gives real support to our military and their families, to child obesity, she’s amazingly accomplished and as focused on the goal as her husband.
This is what a real Power Couple looks like.
Beautifully put, Karen Sr.
Mrs. O has broken the mold. She is one-of-a-kind. HUGE long-term effects.
meta I agree 100%
I believe that is because she was already and accomplished administrator and knows how to make things happen. Republican First Ladies are the female equivalent of an empty suit.
Speaking of empty suits, maybe people could go to the urban dictionary and vote down all the definitions of empty suits because they all disparage the President: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=empty%20suit
Tien Le – Well, that is pretty much unbelievable. I go to the urban dictionary often – well, at least I did. I will try to remember never to make use of that site again.
It’s these little digs that we find that are really pervasive and troublesome. But: guess what, haters (and they know who they are) … President Obama will make the history books and you won’t; President Obama will be re-elected in 2012 and you’ll be someone with a sorry past and a sorry future.
She does so much good for the military and their families. Such an inspiration and gorgeous to boot.🙂
Isn’t she lovely; isn’t she wonderful?
Donna Dem has passed her goal AGAIN…. You go girl!! Off topic I know.
Fundraising for PBO is always “the” topic! So happy for her!
Obama speechwriter, Adam Frankel. leaving to become exec. dir. of new nonprofit, Digital Promise, which will explore ways technology can be used to enhance education. I’m murky on the details but this new endeavor involves Secy of Ed. Arne Duncan and has Congress’ approval. Frankel’s forte was said to be speeches involving morality and history. He wrote the splendid speech Obama delivered brilliantly in W. Va. after the coal mine disaster.
Oops lost my link. Back in a minute.
Oh, sorry to see him go. I thought he added a lot of good to the team. Wonder who will fill his shoes?
How adorable – love this ending to the story about Adam Frankel:
In their conversations, Obama would call him “Frankel,’’ not “Adam.’’
“He can call me whatever he wants,’’ Frankel said.
A nice article on Mrs Obama at ABC
Michelle Obama on President’s Upbringing: He Knows Economic Struggles
Just saw the Christie piece on CBS Evening News and they showed a photo of him greeting PBO at the airport in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene where PBO gives him the death embrace. Heh.
OT: I donated $49.00 to https://donate.barackobama.com/page/outreach/view/2012/donnanoshock3 one week before my 49th b-day just to make sure that “I” NOT Donna had a good time! We have to keep on going and donating IF we can to make sure our FLOTUS & POTUS stay right there where they belong which is in the Whitehouse!!!
happy birthday a week early! nice present. 🙂
Come on guys you’re stealing all my lines concerning our wonderful FLOTUS. I don’t know what to say, except I agree with all of what you said. And we are so bless to have a caring lady like her as our First Lady.
Good Evening Everyone,
I am looking for a link to FLOTUS’s speeches today. Got a link?
The other thing that so impresses me about the Obamas is how involved they are with bringing DC area school children into the White House for concerts, to help plant the garden, etc. These kids have never been treated with such respectful inclusion by any previous POTUS/FLOTUS. What incredible role models they are for a whole new generation!
You tell me what other First Lady would have even dare went to a store like Target. Some folks say it was just a photo op. But FLOTUS have always said she like shopping at stores like these. You see our First Lady wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Everything she and POTUS has they had to work for it. That’s another reason why they have my respect.
I PASSED HER MOTORCADE IN RI THIS PAST WEEKEND!!!!🙂 of course we didn’t know what was going on & we even joked with each other like, “Dayum, is the President here!!” (neither of us live there so we didn’t know until the maids dropped off the morning paper and she was the front page story!!!
It was STILL EXCITING!!🙂
