    Well, j-mac, I guess we can thank the racist teabrains for a 400% rise in threats to the President and his family.

    I imagine it'd be cheaper for them to take a normal vacation if Glenn Beck and fear mongers didn't spend their days making the far-right afraid of their own shadow...

    Who's the boogey man of the week, j-mac? Acorn, La Raza? wait, I know... It's that judge in San Fran... Boo! Gays are coming to getcha!

    Baloney. People see what they want to see, and you're looking at him through your "I hate Obama" filter.

    Even in the best of times, not that many people could afford the kind of trip she's taken to Paris. Or any international trip, really. So should no FLOTUS travel overseas during their White House years?

    You mean the democrat plants that tried to hold up some racist signs and were kicked out of a tea party event? 400% rise eh, that couldn't have to do with the economy being at nearly a 20% unemployment in real numbers, and the President, and his wife looking like they couldn't care less could it? Noooooooo.


    I imagine it'd be cheaper for them to take a normal vacation if Glenn Beck and fear mongers didn't spend their days making the far-right afraid of their own shadow...

    Ohhhhh, Glen Beck....Yes, the Obama's are so afraid of little ol Glenn Beck....He is so scary, what with exposing all Obama's agendas before the liberal goof balls have a chance to spin them and lie eh....I can see where that would be an annoyance. As for afraid, I don't need Beck, or Hannity, or Limbaugh to tell me what I see with my own eyes. The utter destruction of the average man's ability to make a living, buy a house, raise his children. That's being taken away in favor of dependance on the government. Now I know that liberals think that will be a panacea of good things, it will only lead to the fall of this country and the enslavement of its people.


    Who's the boogey man of the week, j-mac? Acorn, La Raza? wait, I know... It's that judge in San Fran... Boo! Gays are coming to getcha!
    I don't believe in so called "Boogey Men" Nut. Only the cleansing light of truth. I know that is something lying demo's and liberals hate.

    Not at all, but do you think it is the best image she could have put forth? Really? Taking a group of people with her like some newly rich rapper and throwing money around like she stepped out of a Snoop Dogg video? All this while thousands of American's get their pink slip daily? Good show!

    In politics and pop culture, optics are all. And Michelle’s optics sent a message that likely made some in the White House and the Democratic Party wince.

    you'll have to explain that one....If you can.


    "Snoop Dogg video"? Sir, I do believe your racism is showing.

    yeah, I don't think so....Tell me, why 40 friends? why the group around her on our dime while others lose their jobs today?

    how is comaparing one black person to another racist? Just because you make a statement about a person, and that person is "non-white" doesn't make it a racist statement.

    this is pathetic. Disagreeing with Obama is not racist. speaking about his wifes 75k a day taxpayer money trip with 40 of her BFF's is not racist. You embarrass yourself when you post such drivel.
