Sasha Obama yawn, Michelle
Obama eye roll entertain during
inaugural festivities

United Press International, by Gabrielle Levy

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/22/2013 8:43:00 AM

At just 11 years old, Sasha Obama has lived most of her life in the limelight, first as the daughter of a rising star candidate, then as the youngest member of the first family. In addition to the pressure to excel at all the things most 11-year-olds must deal with--homework, after school sports, navigating the awkward pre-teen phase--Sasha has to sit attentively at many of her dad´s long speeches under the watchful eyes of the cameras and millions of views across the country. Most days, she wears it well, bearing official events with patience beyond what

Yawning is ok for an 11-year-old. Eye-rolling and refusal to speak to John Boehner when he is seated next to you is not okay for an adult woman, much less the First Lady.

We have to excuse the children. They have terrible parents.

As for the First Lady, we must remember..she is no lady.

I do not care what any of the obama family do or say, I hit the remote the minute they appear. It makes me feel ill to think of this skanky family in the white house.

Pressure to excel? I´ll bet those two kids get straight A´s at Sidwell without doing squat. What ultra lefty teacher at an ultra lefty school is going to give the daughters of the first black president anything but A´s? They are the ultimate in affirmative action - they get credit just for having DNA.

The girls are their mother´s kids. Always bored, sullen, unless clowning with each other. Madam Queen is another juvenile, ill-equipped to teach her young proper public behavior.

If they´re excelling at Sidwell, how come the Obamies had to trek to school for so many teacher conferences?

Hit submit too so. Classy Mooch - chowing down on her 3,000 calorie ´lunch´ . Check out the classic truck driver pose ( no offense to truck drivers ), hunched over on one arm while shoveling in the food. I guess those "Chicago values" don´t include table manners.

She beat Speaker Boehner to the ignore and refused to meet his glance. The final insult was the eye rolling. Apparently, it’s unwise to get in michelle’s way at feeding time.

Although it’s tiresome to cite the predictable media double standard, just suppose the roles had been reversed, and the Speaker had rolled his eyes at michelle? Do you suppose the nytimes would have written a big editorial about the decline of civility in politics, and blamed all of it on the GOP?

michelle obama is an elitist snob with a mean streak. (sorry about being the master of the obvious) To quote a line from a Clint Eastwood movie, the woman has "the manners of a goat and the breath of a whisky bottle."

One more post to say that as much as I dislike Mrs. Obama, she looked lovely yesterday, particularly in the belted coat. The children´s outfits were tasteful and cute and it was obviously a momentous day for them. We should be more careful with our snark.

I can understand Sasha´s yawn, would probably have done the same, but mom should have taught her to cover her mouth when yawning.

But Michelle, the clip of her sitting next to John Boehner, elbow on the table and shoveling food into her mouth while rolling eyes - that says it all. How rude.

Poster 11, the video is available on the original article posted here. I scrolled down and watched it again about 5 minutes ago.

Poster 13, respectfully, it´s not snarky to point out michelle obama´s boorish table manners and rudeness. As for the moral high ground, what does that get conservatives? Nothing. Democrats are vicious. In the political discourse, democrats spew cut throat lies about GOP as a matter of course. As Leo Durocher said, “nice guys finish last. “

Re Michele and the eye roll -- I´ve already heard the laugh about it (because it´s no big deal, don´t you know) and the light commentary, "I wonder what he said" In other words, it must be the Speaker´s fault.

#9 -- what a terrible thing to say about dogs.

The entire family could use some time in a Southern charm school. No phone/texting at church or a serious occasion. Only cows chew cuds, Mr Pres. Keep your elbows (and forearms) off the table and take small bites, put your fork down between bites. Even an 11 yr old should know to stifle a yawn in public even if her father is boring the life out of her.

What difference does it make if they show up dressed "tastefully" if their behavior is boorish and unmannerly?

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
