As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle to Accompany President to Boston Thursday

Michelle Obama will accompany her husband to Boston Thursday to attend an interfaith service memorializing those killed or gravely injured in the Boston terrorist attacks, the White House announced this afternoon.

Michelle incurred some criticism when she did not join the president on a similar pilgrimage to Newtown, Connecticut following the shootings there.

  1. She has to be forced I bet unless it fits her agenda. The part about
    the Vineyard is probably true. Michelle’s warm hugs come at a price.

  2. I’m glad he’s going – I think he should – he’s the president, afterall, and should be showing support on behalf of all of us to Boston and the victims. I will, however, be disappointed and not surprised, if he politicizes this event. I’ll wait for that to happen before I bang on him about his visit but, like I said, doing such a thing won’t surprise me but I’ll wait for him to do it first.

    • BTW, I attribute his previous handling of similar situations as a large contributor to my (and others) cynicism about his motives and what we expect from him. He has proven to be very unworthy of anyone’s generous assumptions about what motivates him. He’s proven over and over to be a very, very small man – one would hope he would rise above his own petty and self-serving interests in a time of crisis and actually act worth of his office but I’ve been dumbfounded before by his behavior.

      • I feel bad for the Boston cops. They have enough on their hands without having to cover security for the o’s and their what, 20-30 car motorcade? And that’s only the beginning.
        Never let a crisis go to waste: there might be a photo-op in there.

    • EVERYTHING Obama does is about ‘optics’ to ‘glorify’ himself. Look at his metoric rise; a nobody, empty-suit, local Chicago thug politican with a “questionable life” (birth to college records to political career) who was SOMEHOW allowed to become “President of the USA” (1776-2009)

  3. The Boston Police/Fire departments have enough to do right now without having to worry about Barry & Moo’s well being. This is nothing more than his obsession with media coverage of his “presence”.

  4. You know, either they’re a couple or not, NOW that’s she’s decided (or forced) to go makes them look even more pathetic and less compassionate.

    Probably why Obama was so cranky at his presser today ;)

  6. Thank you for posting this piece. I’m undeniably frustrated with struggling to search out relevant and brilliant commentary on this subject. Everybody now goes to the very far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not in truth understand the situation. Many thank you for your succinct, applicable insight.
