Almost Everything MO
The Japanese are freaking out over the absence of MO on BO’s latest trip to “reassure” our Asian allies of our unswerving loyalty to them. White House Dossier has the latest on the wringing of hands at this slight by our ever classy MO.
According to a report in the Christian Science Monitor, the Japanese are particularly unnerved because Michelle just spent a celebratory week touring China, Japan’s ancient enemy whose aggressive tactics helped prompt President Obama’s Asia trip in the first place. [snip]
To the Japanese, the sight of Michelle jumping rope with Chinese kids, feeding pandas, trying out tai-chi, and meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan, was more than insult added to injury. It was proof of China’s ascendency to the top rung of America’s strategic priorities and Japan’s fall to second class.
We’ll be able to get another glimpse at the acting abilities of MO when she has a cameo on ‘Nashville’.
But now, Michelle Obama, 50, is heading to Nashville, as it has been confirmed that the First Lady will be making a guest appearance on the ABC drama, starring Connie Britton.
I am sure you’ve all heard about the Easter Egg Roll by now. A picture is worth a thousand words
Mo has unique ways to get kids to Mooove, Michelle Obama Wants You to Dance About a T. Rex to Lose Weight
Everyone is supposed to make a 30 second video with an original dance. All kids are encouraged to enter this exciting contest which may be uploaded to Facebook. Small problem with all that MO noise, you have to be 18 to enter.
MO also wants you to know “splurging is the key to life“….if you wear J-Crew, splurging on that $10,000 gown is a big go. No one can ever accuse her of not taking her own advice when it comes to splurging. She is the first lady of splurges…..all on the taxpayer dime.
Chicago taxpayers …….(shakes head)….*sigh*
At a meeting Thursday in Chicago that was supposed to be for discussion only, the House executive committee voted to borrow $100 million to help finance a presidential library for President Barack Obama. Testifying in favor of the borrowing were House Speaker Michael Madigan and Mayor Rahm Emanuel. They characterized the money as insurance to boost Chicago’s chances of hosting the library. New York and Hawaii are among Chicago’s competitors. [snip]
Let’s hope this time some Democrats come to their senses. This state has no money to be devoting to a presidential library. Obama’s library should be funded the same way most presidential libraries during the last century have been funded: with private money. Bill Clinton and both Bushes did it that way.
Did Rahm close all those schools just to float a BO library, borrowing $100 million to “sweeten the pot”?
MO ‘disinvited’ but insists on showing up anyway.
Michelle Obama has rescheduled a high school graduation speech after the students complained that her appearance would prevent many of their friends and relatives from attending the ceremony.
The First Lady was scheduled to speak at a combined graduation ceremony for five high schools in Topeka, Kansas, on May 17 but will now be speaking at a different ‘senior recognition day’ ceremony the day before.
‘Once we learned about the concerns of some students, we were eager to find a solution that enabled all of the students and their families to celebrate the special day,’ said the First Lady’s communications director, Maria Cristina Gonzalez Noguera.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Getting ready for the big 18th birthday party on Saturday…so glad cupcakes are the ‘in thing’.
Prom is like a “coming out ball for debutantes” for the masses. So, here is “THE” dress chosen for “THE” occasion. The corseted top is beaded (no sequins). With her very pale skin and strawberry blonde hair she won’t be washed out in this dress. She is definitely not a pastel person.
