WND may not be the least partisan news source on the web, but their story on Mrs. Obama and her interaction with Boehner at the luncheon yesterday is telling, as is the video WND imbedded in the story. The headline and tag read, “Michelle Obama rolls eyes twice at Boehner
First lady unimpressed by speaker of the House”

The disrespect continues.

I saw it, that video is out and many will have a good laugh at this ridiculous woman.
I also read the article in NYT above, ” Michelle wears pricey but gets no grief”. It seems like even a NYT journalist is amazed that she gets away with wearing expensive designer items like it´s an Oscar Red Carpet event.I also noticed that she, in spite of all her talk about race, tried a new “white” hairdo , Anna Wintour style. Like I wrote before, why not an Afro ?

Why not wear her natural hair ? So many pretty short styles are worn by powerful black women.

Girly1 January 22, 2013 at 11:05 am

And why doesn’t she let her daughters go ‘natural’? She really has psychological problems.

ImNoDhimmi January 22, 2013 at 2:31 pm

I think her real hair isn’t in good shape. It was looking really thin and ratty along her hairline before the new ‘do. Damaged from wearing too many wigs? Or could it be the beginning of male pattern baldness?

MichelleIndependent January 22, 2013 at 2:24 pm

it should read, ” Michelle Obama wears pricey but still has no class.”

Julie Brueckheimer January 22, 2013 at 3:33 pm

I watched the clip (soundless) but I was distracted by the sight of her guzzling her food.

Girly1 January 22, 2013 at 9:16 am

It’s always nice to be reminded of who this woman really is – a classless, mean-spirited black woman. She makes no attempt to disguise her contempt for this country and it’s lawmakers now that she is Queen for life. Such ignorance!

Watch MrsBoehnor’s reaction to whatever was said or transpired.

Shofar January 22, 2013 at 9:43 am

Yeah, it was one of those, “B!tch! Please!” looks. As a friend of mine puts it, “It’s about to get ghetto in here!”

Looks like Boehner tried to pry Mooch’s attention from shoveling her food when he tapped her arm. Typical uncouth behavior – shoveling food, ignoring the table conversation, rolling her eyes, elbows on the table. Maybe she thought he was trying to steal her lobster.

Daily Mail has this story too the comments are priceless and the short
video of Michelle hunkered down eating is telling. None of it good for
her. As the saying goes about a silk purse and a sows ear are true.

Susan January 22, 2013 at 11:58 am

Looked the article up and the comments are fantastic. Between her feeding at the trough and him picking his nose, surprised anyone else had an appetite to eat that grand lunch.

Lizzy January 22, 2013 at 12:10 pm

Hey we have a new style icon..Granny! The ladies who worship
MO’s flip flops are now detailing Granny they were all a twitter
over Granny’s ‘hand painted earrings’ wonder how much those
cost? If you read too many of the post you’ll go blind.

ImNoDhimmi January 22, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Picking? Or wiping off the traces of cole? Granny Jan made an an excellent video of Barry and his nose wiping habit, titled “Obama the Snow Man”.

ImNoDhimmi January 22, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Oh for an edit feature! Cole should be COKE!

Susan January 22, 2013 at 3:11 pm

He did a double swipe and drill in that video. Really miss Granny Jan’s videos. If you’re out there listening Granny Jan…we need you back in the fight.

While half of America was busy Monday watching or avoiding Washington…

Dateline Davos: January 22, 2013

All you need to know in a few words:

$14 Trillion dollars.
Global economy/Global warming.
Drum roll…
Proposal that governments use public money to give guarantees, insurance and incentives to potential low-carbon investors at the same time as phasing out fossil fuel subsidies.

Don’t let yourselves be distracted by the minutia. As we sit on the cusp of making ourselves energy independent [XL Pipeline and fracking] pay attention to the agenda from Washington. Remember, this is the preezy that wants a level playing field even if it means taking us to a Third World status.

Keeping the barbarians from the gate: Switzerland has turned into a fortress with 10 miles of barbed wire and extravagant Swiss army drills:

Sadie January 22, 2013 at 10:28 am

If I am not mistaken, nearly every male in Switzerland owns a weapon.

Girly1 January 22, 2013 at 10:03 am

O/T, but worth mentioning. I received an interesting Email from Beckwith (The Obama File) yesterday. Back in December, NBC News reported that four HANDGUNS, not two, as originally reported, were found in the classroom at Sandy Hook. The Bushmaster remained in the trunk of the shooter’s vehicle. It was also reported that the shooter had an altercation with several people at the school just days before the shooting. If this is true, it appears that Obama has changed the facts of the case to suit his forthcoming gun control legislation. Could find no evidence to discredit the NBC report, but all reports indicate that the shooter used a semi-automatic. Something is not right here.

The Arizona Republic (Gannett) led with the huge head quoting: This is the moment we were made for. We WHO? Sure not the moment I was made for.

MichelleIndependent January 22, 2013 at 11:51 am

mooch made a fool of herself at the 3000 calorie luncheon, shoveling in her grub, elbows on table, pig at trough.

She has zero class.

Ha, get ready for the sold out sign on the IC-164 model. Can low information voters use food stamp cards to make internet purchases?
