Michelle Obama Shows Her Disdain For Boehner

by lewwaters

Without the audio it can’t be said with certainty what triggered the eye roll, but not what we expect to see from a First ‘Lady’ during an official function.

Regardless though, we do expect a certain degree of decorum and civility towards each other, especially while dining at any official function our government holds.

“All This Just For A Flag?”

by lewwaters

If lip readers are correct, can Michelle Obama and her husband be any more disrespectful? Paying homage to those murdered on September 11, 2001, as Bagpipes played towards the end of the ceremonies they attended and as the American Flag is being folded, she is seen leaning into Barack Obama, apparently saying, “All this for a flag?” Barack seems to nod his head in agreement.

The Washington Times explains the disrespect shown, “Perhaps Mrs. Obama thinks that all the pomp and circumstance she experiences in her daily life has something to do with her, rather than the unofficial office she holds. If so she should disabuse herself of that notion quickly. The official gestures of respect shown to her are the same shown to any First Lady, and if she wasn’t married to the president she would be just another citizen.”

Recalling her frequent very expensive vacations and treatment to the very best there is, all at taxpayer expense, I can only nod in agreement with the Times as they say, “all this just for Michelle Obama?”

“Obama for America’s” AttackWatch.com makes no mention yet of this latest Obama gaffe.

Apologists are claiming she actually said, “I love how they fold the flag.”

FLOTUS Excuses Junk Food, When She & BHO Eat It

by lewwaters

Unbelievable, after all of the hype and messages sent out and pushing her “Healthy Kids Initiative,” telling parents what they may or may not feed to their children. First Lady Michelle Obama is defending the choices of junk food chosen for the White House Super Bowl Party, here.

The party menu consisted of “Yuengling Lager and Light, brewed in Pennsylvania, Hinterland Pale Ale and Amber Ale, all the way from Wisconsin. Honey Ale and bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza and Buffalo wings with sides of German potato salad, twice-baked potatoes and assorted chips and dips.”

Coming under fire for such extravagant junk food, Michelle Obama, defending the choice now says,

“I think I’ve always been very consistent on that front because that’s how I live my life. It’s about balance. It’s always about balance. It’s not realistic to just eat healthy food all the time — especially on Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t even know what you’d have other than some hot dogs and some burgers for a Super Bowl party.”

Politico

She goes on to claim it is about “balance,” but where is the balance in her “Healthy Kids Initiative?”

Perhaps she could use a bit more balance herself.


How small were those portions at the White House Super Bowl Party again?

Michelle Obama Caught Violating Illinois Election Law

by lewwaters

Developing story, Michelle Obama, First Lady of America cast an early vote in her South Chicago District. After casting her ballot and returning her voter key, she apparently paused for photos to be taken of herself and engaged others voters in political discussion INSIDE the polling place, encouraging voters to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended Mrs. Obama saying, “I don’t think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband’s agenda.”

Mrs. Obama, a Harvard educated lawyer, “may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it,” claimed top Illinois State Board of Elections official. The official added, “You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right? I mean, she’s pretty well liked and probably doesn’t know what she’s doing.”

Illinois law Sec. 17-29 (a) states, “No judge of election, pollwatcher, or other person shall, at any primary or election, do any electioneering or soliciting of votes or engage in any political discussion within any polling place [or] within 100 feet of any polling place.”

Equal justice? I don’t hold my breath waiting on anything to come of this.

If it had been Laura Bush, however………..

UPDATE: The Chicago Sun-Times reports on Mrs. Obama’s voting and includes, “‘She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going,’ said Dennis Campbell, a 56-year-old electrician.”

Curiously, the Chicago Tribune, via the LA Times included in their coverage, “Obama abided by election laws that prohibit electioneering within 100 feet of a polling place,” with no reason given for the defensive sentence.

Yes Lou, “It Is Too Bad How We Make Decisions,” Isn’t It?

by lewwaters

Lou Brancaccio The irony of Lou Brancaccio’s column in the Saturday October 3 Columbian is just too much to pass up.

Lou joins in with those Obama admirers who are seemingly stunned that the IOC could possible reject a personal plea from the One and his better half, MO. That the whole world isn’t enamored with such an inexperienced junior senator who has no idea what to do, other than engage in self glorification in every speech as are those Americans who fell for the canard of Obama completely escapes those like Lou Brancaccio.

For those reading this not in the Clark County Washington area, Lou Brancaccio is the managing editor of our paper of record, The Columbian, struggling through chapter 11 currently over decreasing revenues.

Lou pens a weekly column, Press Talk, editorializing his opinion, predominantly Democrat, as are many other failing newspapers across America.

The irony dripping from the title alone of his latest screed, Too bad how we make decisions is unbelievable, given that many in the community have called Brancaccio on his own decisions of making mountains out of molehills in favor of Democrats while often completely ignoring legitimate news stories that may paint Republicans in either favorable light or expose their own bias.

Many instances have been noted not only on this blog site, but several others within the community and even in the comments section of many articles written by Lou or his vitriolic cohorts, John Laird and Kathie Durbin, just to mention two.

Lou, who I believe once said he hailed from the Chicago area himself, laments on how the world doesn’t see the true Chicago today and instead of seeing the good of the city, focuses on such as Al Capone or the violent 1968 Democratic Convention held in the city.

Nowhere does he note that his choice of president has spent the entire 8 months of his presidency to date traveling the globe and apologizing for America being such a lousy country.

Even Bill Bennett noted on CNN that for once, Obama would be forced to praise America.

But to me, the irony isn’t so much that the IOC saw through the self aggrandizing speeches of both of the Obama’s but that Lou can’t even see his own poor choices in decision making that results in casting half of the community his paper claims to serve aside in favor of the political rhetoric of the left.

The editors ignore the voices of the community in matters of importance as tolling a new bridge across the Columbia River, taxing citizens for Universal Healthcare that is rapidly failing across America and even same-sex marriage, which has been soundly defeated everywhere it goes before a citizen vote.

Instead we see editorial after editorial trying to convince us how wrong we are, how we are not up to par with our values and at times, how dumb and bigoted we may be for not agreeing with leftists.

What you don’t see in editorials are mentions of outrageous comments made by Democrat Alan Grayson, mentions of False Democrat claims that offend conservatives or even mention of how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is threatening a Nevada newspaper, even though I personally sent Lou that article.

They don’t even have the courtesy to return a comment of “screw off, Republican.”

To be fair, I must comment that the editor of the Letters to the Editor section does pretty good job of approving letters from both points of view. But a paper cannot live by LTE’s only.

Lou tells us, “The International Olympic Committee turned a deaf ear to Chicago.”

From where I sit, the Columbian and Lou Brancaccio turns a deaf ear to half of Clark County, the conservative half.

He goes on to say, “In many ways we are all part of Chicago. And the Olympics will be worse off without it.”

Is he not part of Clark County and does not ignoring so many within our county leave his papers revenues “worse off?”

Even more ironic today, after lamenting on LeGarrette Blount, University of Oregon football player who punched out an opposing player, Lou says, “Consequences are not just set up for the offending party. They are also set up to show society what happens when you do wrong. Apparently, slaps on wrists for major wrongdoing is standard operating procedure in sports.”

Could not the same thing be said in regards to the ACORN scandal Lou is barely covering?

Could it not also be said of misdeeds of Democrat party members who still sit in chairmanships of committees and who the so called press doesn’t bother to write much about?

Could it also be said of a failing newspaper who chooses to ignore half of the community they claim to serve?

Yes Lou, it is too bad how we make decisions.

From where I sit, yours don’t seem much better than what you claim for the IOC.

Isn’t it time for him to go home yet?

by lewwaters

APTOPIX Democratic Convention
After hearing just how smitten all of Europe is with the O’s, imagine my surprise to look into the UK Telegraph and see the article, Barack Obama really does go on a bit with the very first sentence of, “Isn’t it time for him to go home yet?

The author, Iain Martin asks, “am I alone in finding him increasingly to be something of a bore?

Focusing on the self-absorption of the O, Mr. martin said,

But Obama was only warming up. “When I was born,” (Everything usually leads back to him, you’ll notice)… “the world was divided, and our nations were faced with very different circumstances. Few people would have predicted that someone like me would one day become an American President.” (Him again)…

He ends with,

“The Obamas have handled their trip well and in their public appearances have been a credit to their country. But I’ll wager that within a year or so he’ll be marked down as a wind-bag.”

Mr. Martin, nearly half of America knew this long ago. Sure wish you all would have listened to us then.

Be sure to check out the comments from other Brits.

UPDATE: Sarkozy Warns Obama: BUTT OUT!
