I know that, according to Hillary Clinton, the truth doesn’t matter, but come clean please: is this a photoshop?

Thanks, Star. This is so classless and sad. Don’t you hear old-fashioned mothers everywhere murmuring about ‘appropriate behavior’?

Those phones bug me–I blogged on it, too. I have stood around while my sister waited for her kid to text back two letters–”OK.”

Thanks, Star. If you look further down the row, it looks like Biden is texting too.

Oh my – more good stuff to feast upon. Very important.

Oddly, and of course, we can not “see” if there was a break in the action, but that does not matter. No one else seems to be looking forward, so the likelihood that there was a break is pretty high. But, yeah, maybe not – could have been the GOP Float with a Tea Party theme going by… And, it does not matter? Of course not! Why? Cuz ya just like to bitch, moan, and complain.

Judged, tried, and executed. Wonder if you guys could take on our Death Row Appeals… Make pretty quick work of it… Hmmm – may be there is a role for this lot… Let me get on the horn…lol..

I’m reminded of Mrs. O’s “all this for a damn flag” comment. I can understand the kids texting and all, they are after all, kids. However, POTUS and his wife should have been paying attention to what was going on.

I’m sure they will be paying attention to the big screen TV during the Super Bowl. That should be one helluva party this year, what with no campaign or media image to have to worry about.

Why should they pay attention? After they got done with the walk, the parade wasn’t really about them any more.

The girls took pix of them kissing with their phones, too–saw that someplace.

I thought Mrs. O told us that her children were not allowed cell phones, social media, etc. Guess that was a lie too from the most incredible mother on the planet.

Has to be Photoshop! NBC would never show their savior not being presidential (is swatting a fly during an interview presidential?).

The Obamas = no class.
Just look at “Barack Hussein Obama” (his hidden ‘life-back ground’) & his Wife; “Michelle Lavaughn Robison” who have no Respect for the history of the US…

Mooch has no class or manners so why would her children have any?

Reply

OK lady January 24, 2013 at 4:41 pm

This actually brings me distress. Her lack of manners and grace in her position is inexcusable. The fact that she isn’t teaching her daughters how to behave and carry themselves is sad. She’s doing them a disservice.
I know they’re young, but they never look happy to be where they are or aware of the importance of a smile. And, since children learn a lot by observing I’m left to believe her daughters haven’t observed a lot of warmth and happiness. Growing up in a fishbowl can’t be pleasant. Maybe he should have waited until they were older to subject them to life in the WH.
Then again, he was thinking of his country and its need for fundamental change. (she said with tongue in cheek)

Are these some new kind of super-secure electronic devices that will protect the Wee Obama’s from any offensive hacking or nefarious stalkers?
Who are they texting/tweeting, have they all been vetted by the SecretService?

It seems they showed as much interest in the parade as the 285 million Americans who didn’t watch it either.

What a great example of a loving, caring, attentive family at church services. Mooch could be passed out bending over like that and none of them would notice. Read not too long ago that these grifters eclipsed the Huxtables as black marriage role models. The cult of personality is going strong.

Class, integrity, respect for others, honesty, patriotism, etc. are but a few of the things they lack. If you notice Joe Biden is also on his cell. This is what happens when you have a family that has not ever had to work for anything.
That’s America’s current leadership — and this is the family a magazine is taking the Huxtable’s place as an iconic family? Mr Huxtable would have had some kids on real restrictions. As goes the president , so goes the nation — those paying attention are being ignored or denigrated..

All those people who came so far to march and the Obama’s all of them can’t be bothered to look. Completely classless. And rude.

Sad that the first family can’t even pay attention to each other or their surroundings. Do they actually converse with each other or do they text each other instead?

His main Secret Service agent is having a laugh with the blond female agent next to him…not paying attention.

Michelle O’s wig reveals a white-colored scalp in the part. I suppose that’s all that was available.

Other than that business as usual.

Well well, all over your big sad about the election, “granny”, where the pickup driving Cosmo centerfold was going to kill Elizabeth Warren? Can we look forward to more of your fun fun videos? I especially like the ones mocking the Obama family’s physical appearance, produced by someone who resembles a monitor lizard.

Lizzy, thanks for sharing about that great article.Glad somebody finally called Michelle out for her behavior.

In fairness, folks, they’re not the only ones who are way too obsessed with their phones and allowing their children to be, too. At Christmas, a whole passel of my cousin-in-law’s really delightfully-behaved children were playing with iPhones together instead of the sort of games and activities our generations would have done at a similar family gathering. They weren’t snotty about it, and were socializing, too; but still, it makes me sad to see so many spend so much time interacting with a screen, when there are people nearby.

I will say, though, that although I understand many people are used to having their phones at all times to take photos and “memorialize” every moment, one would have hoped that, as the main participants in SUCH a historic set of events, they could have left the phones home this once. After all, there are plenty of other people taking photos; and it wouldn’t hurt any of them to give their full attention to the moment. A lot of people went to a lot of trouble to put together that historic day.
