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

United Press International, by Gabrielle Levy

Original Article

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.

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."

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.

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.

MOSCOW/KERCH, Ukraine— U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev on Tuesday and announced an economic package and technical assistance for Ukraine in a show of support for its new government amid escalating tensions with Russia. Kerry described the visit, his first visit since the overthrow of Russian-backed President Victor Yanukovich, as "moving, distressing and inspiring." Kerry´s visit comes as Washington and its Western allies step up pressure on Moscow to withdraw its troops from Ukraine´s Crimea region or face economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation. A senior U.S. administration official, who briefed reporters en route to Kiev, said the

The first Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, convened in Washington 41 years ago drawing a little more than 100 conservative activists from around the country who found themselves enthralled by a keynote address delivered by California’s Republican governor, Ronald Reagan. Since then, CPAC has grown to the event that will kick off this Thursday. It is expected to draw as many as 10,000 or 11,000 conservatives from every corner of the country and from perhaps a dozen or so foreign countries. Some of them will have attended every CPAC since that first one, but nearly half of them will

Are Liberals Less Selfish Than Other People?

Liberals claim to be better than other mortals. Liberals, they tell us, are a political anomaly who vote for other people’s benefit, not their own. Democrats see themselves as the generous party, the saviors of the needy, the elderly, the minority underdog against the cruel hand of fate and Republicans. Liberals are right: there is a difference in caring that shows up along party lines. Conservatives give more, a lot more. They aren’t content with good-hearted wishes, they do good deeds, turning wishes into actions. Conservatives are ten times more personally charitable, even to secular causes. They do far more

America´s governors disagree on a lot of issues. But they´re united on one front -- stopping the Pentagon from proceeding with planned cuts to the Army National Guard. As President Obama prepares to release his budget plan on Tuesday, all 50 governors have signed a letter asking him to keep the Guard´s ranks at 350,000, instead of cutting it down to 335,000 as the Pentagon has suggested. "The nation´s governors strongly oppose the potential cuts," they wrote, after meeting with him and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel during their annual winter meeting last week in Washington.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.— The Air Force Academy is investigating whether 40 freshman cadets cheated in a chemistry class. Academy officials said Monday some cadets possibly copied portions of a lab report assignment. The school says about 500 cadets are enrolled in the class. Initial reports said 11 cadets were under investigation, but the academy said later it was 40. Lt. Gen. Michelle D. Johnson, the academy superintendent, says she is disappointed by the allegations. Cheating is forbidden by the academy´s honor code. Cadets who break the code can be expelled, but the Colorado Springs Gazette reports (http://tinyurl.com/mchobbr ) freshmen

WASHINGTON – While the games will be played, a presidential delegation—led by Rep. Tammy Duckworth D-Ill.- will not be going to the upcoming Paralympics in Sochi because of Russian military aggression in Ukraine, a first small rebuke in a series of sanctions the U.S. and European allies are contemplating. Duckworth, a wounded Iraq war vet, was preparing to depart on Wednesday, leading a six-member delegation to the games. The Paralympics start with an opening ceremony on Friday and run through March 16.

Snakeskin clothes and accessories are seen as being very glamorous – but the factories where the animals are killed and skinned to make them are anything but. One such slaughterhouse can be found in the village of Cirebon, Indonesia. There, workers skin and kill snakes in their thousands every week, with huge mounds of snakes dotted around the floor in various stages of treatment. A variety of methods are used to kill and skin snakes in Indonesia. The most common method has been cited by many as exceptionally cruel and outdated. The snake is stunned with a blow to the head

Russia didn’t fire any shots in Ukraine on Monday, but there were plenty of casualties on Russia’s currency, bond and stock markets — even as Western nations rushed to plan their economic defense of the current government in Kiev. Share prices of Russian companies plunged nearly 11 percent, and the Russian ruble tumbled to an all-time low against the U.S. dollar despite Russia’s nearly half-trillion-dollar hoard of foreign exchange. The country’s natural gas monopoly, Gazprom, which sells to Ukraine and other parts of Europe through pipelines crossing Ukraine, fell about 12 percent, wiping out nearly $13 billion in shareholder value

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

He told every Apple shareholder to take a hike and waved potential investors away. When Cook met with shareholders Friday, he lost his usual business cool when a group proposed that the company be more open about its environmental activism as well as transparent about costs it incurs as it increases its dependence on renewable energy.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
