Michelle Obama Continues To Seek Celebrity Status

June 8, 2012 by  

Michelle Obama Continues To Seek Celebrity Status
PHOTOS.COM
The first lady appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” to promote her gardening book.

As anticipation about the coming election escalates  — and with it Americans’ concerns about the faltering economy — Michelle Obama found time to advertise her book on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

While many politicians are spending time digging up dirt on the competition, Obama has been busy promoting her gardening book.

The first lady’s book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, has been her focus as of late. Her appearance on Letterman was just one of many television cameos promoting the book.

Letterman gave Obama the chance to show her comedic ability, allowing her to present the Top 10 list:

  • No. 10: Gardening was invented in 1822 by Albert Gardener.
  • No. 9: Plant avocados, tomatoes, onions and cilantro together and grow a guacamole tree.
  • No. 8: Eggplants were originally cultivated for use as doorstops.
  • No. 7: In his lifetime, the average American will eat half a radish.
  • No. 6: The largest zucchini ever grown contained a Starbucks.
  • No. 5: Later this year the Supreme Court will finally rule on “tomato” vs. “tomahto.”
  • No. 4: If you have an actual green thumb, it might be scurvy.
  • No. 3: Lettuce is 96 percent water and 4 percent lettuce.
  • No. 2: The White House tool shed contains shovels, trowels and Weed Whacker One.
  • No. 1: With enough care and effort you can grow your own Barack-oli.

  • Karolyn

    So? Big deal! What is wrong with what she’s doing?

    • Betty

      So, has anyone asked Michelle how many hours she spends a day tending her garden? Or was the photo of her digging in the dirt just a photo-op? Or was it a warning to us that things are going to get so bad we will all have to dig up our front lawns if we want to eat?

      • Buster the Anatolian

        She is too busy running all around the country and the world to spend much time in “her” garden.

    • upaces88

      Karolyn, she is the FIRST LADY OF THE WH. She “was” included as one of the world’s leaders’ first ladies. She has the LEAST polish, societal manners to appear in public; the least class of ANY first lady of ANY country. She conducts herself like those who become wealthy over night (“trash with cash”. She was in a disco with her husband and secret service and got up to dance. When she did…she pulled the back of her pants down to, literally, show her butt.

      She is the example to the world of the United States’ first lady and makes a fool of herself in public.

    • http://gravatar.com/catman11 coalminer

      Karolyn,
      What about Sarah Palin?She sought celebrity status,book deals,television appearences, etc.Like you said,big deal.

      • upaces88

        Sarah Palin was/is a “citizen” free to open herself up to allow book signings, TV appearances, etc. SHE WAS/IS NOT the First Lady who is expected to have grace and the resemblance of decorum (Behavior in keeping with good taste and propriety.)

        The photo doesn’t show up…she, literally, dropped her jeans and showed her “butt” to everyone in the night club.

        I hope the photo shows up: If not, I am giving you the URL to see for yourself:
        The Obama’s cleared the dancefloor and ordered the nightclub owner to give everyone whatever they wanted at the bar. Soon word got round the local neighborhood and there was a sudden rush at the door but many were not allowed entry.

        http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/most-popular/1686-michelle-obama-fashion-rocks-the-dome-nightclub.html

        Michelle wears a pair of $49.99 jeans from
        BootyCall and a $12.75 G-string from Wash Krew

        The surprise visit by the Obama’s went down well with the regulars who soon crowded around the dance floor as the DJ pumped some serious bass through the club’s speaker system.

        “Baby got back! Michelle even posed for photos when she got her booty out for the boys. Barack was seen doing some serious moves on the dancefloor too, he had about twenty women around him adoring every move he made. It was something I never seen before,” Leroy Robinson, a regular at the Dome told Washington Week magazine.

        • winstonsmith6079

          If these photos are real and hit the international wires it could turn out to be bigger gaffe than Biden could EVER utter! I am NOT an “old fogey”, – I enjoy the ladies “struttin’ their stuff” as much as any man! But for the wife of the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES to go acting like some Hollywood bimbo – WITH THE PRESIDENT IN ATTENDANCE!
          Again, IF these photos are real I’d say the reputation of the United states and the First Family has taken a HUGE hit! America and the International community expect a bit more decorum from the leader of the most powerful nation on earth!
          Well, you talk about “misdirection”? If she’s onstage when the president is giving a speech – the audience will be preoccupied remembering these pictures to hear a WORD he’s saying!
          Talk about schmoozing the Muslims – FAIL! They’ve been known to stone a woman to death for just showing her face in public! He’s already POed the Christian community with his Birth Control edict and he’s sure not helped that reputation with these pics, either.
          PLEASE TELL ME THAT THESE ARE PHOTOSHOPPED!

      • http://naver samurai

        What about Hitlery, Boxer, and Pelosi? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

  • Nancy

    this woman is as phony as a size 30 shoe.What a sorry excuse for a first lady
    Can’t wait to see all of the obamas go away

    • JON

      What makes you such a bitter person? Did someone look at you wrong today?

      • upaces88

        What bitterness? It is an observation of a woman who REPRESENTS HERSELF AS THE FIRST LADY…and comes off like Trash with Cash.
        It is sadness. It is anger that she represents the Country as First Lady is NOT respected in other countries.

      • http://naver samurai

        She doesn’t set a good example for anything American. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

      • Lori

        Just signed up for this newsletter and thinking it was a big mistake. It’s all ignorant Ant-Obama and nothing to do with personal liberty. If you are hating on Michelle Obama for doing HER thing – Guess you only believe in Personal Libert for YOURSELF. Selfishness and Greed is what is hurting this country. Glad to have Michelle Obama Representing our country. She brings intelligence and compassion and has a life of her own – the very qualities a First Lady should have.

        • upaces88

          Lori, then you should unsubscribe because this is about LIBERTY and the Moose telling us what we should and should NOT eat as she stuff her mouth with cheeseburger + fries. That is taking away “choice”, which describes Liberty.

          You don’t belong here since you don’t believe in LIBERTY OR CHOICE. Try to Google:
          What is the Freedom index of the United States of America. As of about 3 weeks ago, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was “47th” on the Freedom Index.

        • winstonsmith6079

          Lori,
          First, since no one has questioned the validity of these pics and the story I must presume that they are legitimate.
          That said, I don’t think that most of these posts express so much “hate” as “DISGUST”. This woman and her husband, the President of the United States of America, represent this Country, all THREE HUNDRED MILLION of us, to the WORLD! And I’m sure that the photos and story has gone around it many times. I’m sorry that she may feel “restricted” or “inhibited” but as the wife of the President she is no longer “just any woman” she IS “America” to the world and ought to exhibit the decorum and decency expected of that role! I don’t think that anyone has revoked the rule: “In order to BE RESPECTED one must SHOW RESPECT”.
          Even our hated and avowed enemies, Saddam Hussein and the like, were frequently seen wearing a business suit and their wives were dressed modestly to try to ingratiate themselves into the good graces of the world! You do realize the in many countries (who are already causing us no end of trouble) behavior like this would get a woman stoned to death before she pulled her pants up. Now, her actions and her husband’s approval has only served to give them more reasons to hate this “decadent, unholy” country and increase their desire to destroy this “evil” Nation! And, in MANY other countries the only place they’d see pics like this is in the tabloids and “girlie” magazines – so our international reputation took a major hit there, too!
          You say she “wants to be her own woman”? Fine, publish her gardening book – I give her kudos for that! But if she wants to parade her butt in public she can do that next February when she no longer represents the VAST majority of American women who wouldn’t be caught DEAD looking like that!
          The ONLY advantage I can see coming from this with regards to her husband’s future career would be the thought in a VERY FEW minds: “I gotta reelect Obama so I can see more of that hot butt!”

          • upaces88

            Winston, that is very patient and kind of you to take the time to explain to her.
            However, please remember you are trying to explain things to a liberal who doesn’t keep up with what is going on.

            When I was blogging on Yahoo Buzz several years ago, I ran into my first experience with Liberals.
            At first, I thought, “well, maybe they just don’t understand”…so I would take the time to explain things to them.
            …again, and again, and AGAIN!
            I became very frustrated, so I decided I would ask in the Google Engine:
            This is what I got back.
            Yes, they are mentally ill:

      To say the least? They are am embarrassment for the U.S. to the rest of the world.

  • MAP

    This whole pathetic regime has tried to align its self with the despicable and repulsive pop culture. If this is the future, kiss America, or what little remains of it, goodbye

  • Neil

    I can not buy a king-size Snickers bar because of this twit. She is finished!

    • JON

      You probably don’t need a King-Sized Snickers anyway. You’re already full of hate….and whatever else gets flushed.

      • upaces88

        And,you are filled with Blind obedience and ignorance OR just plain stupid if you don’t see what is happening.

      • http://naver samurai

        You mean he did a JON in the toilet? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

    • upaces88

      Why can’t you buy a king sized Snickers?

  • Warrior

    Speaking of “rock stars”, wily eric holder got grilled again yesterday about several doj issues. To bring you all up to speed, eric still can’t determine who is responsible for Fast and Furious but the internal investigation continues. Did you also know the discrimination lawsuit by minority farmers has now grown from $1.2 bil to just short of $5 bil. Seems as though congress approved funding of up to $1.2 bil however eric found a slush fund with several more billion in it. Hmmmm., joey really needs to finalize that “stimulus” accounting report he was tasked with providing. Remember when little barry put little joey in charge of that program?

    By the way, when ‘ginning up” the base, can one request olives. I really enjoy the ones with those little red thingy’s in them. Besides consuming more olives will help the greek economy.

  • chiox198

    Such an embarrassment for a first lady. Promoting healthy at the same time cramming down hamburgers and ice cream. Not to mention all the taxpayers’ vacations she’s taken in 3 yrs. Nobody questions “why did the Bar Association take away her lawyer’s status”? Barack’s was taken away too!

    • MAP

      Chiox it is spelled ‘hypocrisy’, all capital letters. (It should be the motto for the Democratic Party) The message being: ‘do as I say, not as I do’. Just how stupid do these scoundrels believe we are?

    • JON

      She is an awesome first lady! You are just a bitter person with nothing good to say to anyone! You will more than likely NEVER be as admired as her.

      • http://naver samurai

        The personal attack. Classic traitor 5th column strategy. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

  • wandamurline

    I have been around for 11 presidents, and I must admit, I have never seen any president or first lady try to be a Hollywood star during their tenure. I have never witness such people with absolutely no class in my life, representing the greatest nation in the world. There is nothing wrong with writing a book, and the fact that she got this idea is great, because it is probably the first time in her life that she actually planted anything….so now, all of a sudden she is a master gardner. I cannot decide if they are the president and first lady or the stars of late night. I find it very concerning as the world is watching these two display what I would call non-presidential entertaining.

    • http://comcast the fisherman

      come on guy do we all have to do the saame thing as others do . Do you pick your nose for other do it. Suck it up idiot

    • JON

      What about Nancy Reagan and her Hollywood actor husband Ronald.

      • A Little Bit of Reality

        This is true Jon.. Almost every ‘chat’ the Raygun gave eventually revolved around his 20 mule team days and past memories that he himself eliminated from Americana while his old lady sought psychics to predict what her husband should should do to take us down into history.. Once he got shot, she became the 40th & 1/2 president. I do believe it was the greatest role he ever played.

      • iratd

        Reagan was a celebrity because of his profession, a Hollywood actor. He didn’t seek celebrity status after he got into politics, he already had it. Did he call on his life’s experience, a life in Hollywood, as a politician to solve problems ,yes. We all do, Except Obama, community organizer. He said he would bring the country together, he’s done more to divide this country than any person or president. The only experience is class warfare.

        p.s.
        Who can you knock Reagan when he was , after all, from Hollywood.

      • http://naver samurai

        What about Hitlery Clinton from 1993-2000? She acted like she was the president. Must be because Bill was too busy with Monica. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. You need both love of country and fear of God to be a patriot.

        • upaces88

          True; however, she NEVER mocked OUR Flag; and she never showed her ass, literally, to an entire nightclub while President Hubby watched.
          This is a relatively short video by Wild Bill. He talks about the Secret Service with each of the Presidents:

    They need to fly a drone over Michelle’s garden like they do to farmers in the Midwest to make sure the garden meets USDA standards.

  • winstonsmith6079

    It’s called “MISDIRECTION”. “Oh look at these pretty petunias …NOT my husband’s record.”

    • upaces88

      EXACTLY!!!

      • winstonsmith6079

        I amend my statement, NOT “look at the petunias” – it’s “look at the ‘BOOTY’ tat on my big butt”

  • Glenn

    Letterman is an Idiot..the crap wasn’t
    even funny

    • JON

      Letterman is funny you’re the who’s crap.

  • A Little Bit of Reality

    Jackie Kennedy wasn’t pro-politics either (as neither were most other first ladies).. Her desire was to show Americans what it looked like in the Nation’s first house. To brow beat Michelle Obama for not becoming ultra political is simply angry people who wants to accuse her of being our enemy as well.. Can’t do that when her interests revolves around other things, so blame her for our possible future lack of store bought groceries then. We godda get out and grow our own food, oooooh!! At least we can omit industrial poisons in what we eat. I grow veggies, fruits and nuts with loads of worms and good soil.. No carcinogens or dichlorophenoxyacetic acid in my home brews.

    • upaces88

      A Little Bit of Reality…you NEED to get a Big Bit of Reality:
      It isn’t the place of any first lady to INTERRUPT by being political. Her role is much like that of an Ambassador representing us with visiting dignitaries and doing the same when over seas.
      She has been an embarrassment. Poor George Bush’s Wife, Laura, was always a gracious, polished Lady. She was educated and could talk with anyone on any subject;

      Barbara Bush, Bless her heart, looked like George Washington but the woman carried grace and charm to every dignitary she met. She was always poised in difficult situations.
      Jackie Kennedy was an amazing woman who charmed the world with her grace, charm; and she was extremely intelligent and made everyone feel comfortable around her. She could discuss any subject matter with great ease.

      Then Mrs. Obama….embarrasses us. The old saying “Trash is still trash even when the sun shines on it” fits her. She has NO class. She is a racist towards us. She hates what America stands for.

      NAME one…just ONE positive thing she has done for us.
      She tells me what to eat…it is NOT her place to tell anyone what to eat as she stuffs her face with cheeseburgers then dances in a nightclub with her butt hanging out.

      • Lori

        Anyone holding up Barbara Bush as an example of a first lady – CLEARLY doesn’t know what they are talking about!! LOL – You mean the woman who had NO compassion for the Hurrican Katrina victims? The woman who wanted to help school children ONLY if her family would Profit by it? The bigoted first lady whose arrogance and “let them eat cake” attitude could rival Marie Antoinette? Wow.

        • upaces88

        Don’t talk bad about Barbara Bush,she has got her picture on a one dollar bill.she is butt ugly.Ha ha ha

        • upaces88

          Yes, Michelle made a great impression in African when she took the Safari. She expected it to be free; and Africa had to file a law suit to get the $$ back.

  • upaces88

    Winston, I wish I could tell you that. If for one moment I believed they were photo shopped, I wouldn’t have posted them.
    There is an old saying….”Even when the sun shines on trash, it is still trash.”

  • upaces88

    Jon, your remark was uncalled for. There was no hate expressed. There was hurt, embarrassment for our country due to the way the FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES presents herself to the WORLD on OUR behalf. I am embarrassed for our country.
    She spent so much $ going on a Safari in Africa that Africa filed a law suit against us.

    She was caught on camera with her husband, the President of the United States, criticizing us for “placing our Hand over our hearts as the Flag went by in a parade.
    Her words were: “All of this for a flag?”
    Where have you been?

  • upaces88

    Can anyone here imagine Jackie Kennedy, literally, showing her ass at a nightclub in front of the entire room? Can you imagine any of the First Ladies demeaning us holding our hand over our hearts as the flag passes by us in a parade?
    Where have you been?

  • Dave67

    Burn her for having an opinion!!!!

  • Lori

    So sick of the OBVIOUS racism going on here against the Obama’s. From Day one the man was stopped, blocked and criticized. The Haters on here and throughout our country are hysterical calling Michelle a racist. Look in the mirror to find the bigotry. Staring Right back at You.

    • winstonsmith6079

      “From Day one …”? What about the SEVEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY DAYS that he COULDN’T be stopped – when the Dems held the House, Senate AND the White House?

    • upaces88

      Lori, it is NOT racism. ACTS that are being committed are what everyone is upset about. Do you think we really care about the color? Good Grief…you haven’t been reading the articles, watching the video(s) if you think we are hating and worried because because of a skin color?
      You haven’t been keeping up with the damage he is doing to EVERY person in the U.S. with his actions.
      Where in the world have you been?

    • upaces88

      i am going to show MY list…then I want you to show YOUR list of great things he has done for this country. That is only fair:

      Whoever said that Obama hasn’t acomplished anything in his first term?

      First President to recommend changing our National Anthem as it portrays and promotes violence and is warlike in its theme.
      First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer Breakfast and activities.
      First President to initiate a Cash for Clunkers Program to clean up exhaust that adds to global warming, then extended it because it was so popular — wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.
      First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
      First President to bypass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

      First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
      First President to fire an inspector general of Americorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
      First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

      First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
      First President to go on multiple global ‘apology tours’.
      First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends; paid for by the taxpayer.
      First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
      First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.
      First President to repeat the Holy Qur’an and tells us that the early morning Islamic call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.
      Now it is up to us Freedom-loving Americans to see to it that he is voted out after his FIRST term. May God bless America again. Stay safe, and be aware of your surroundings.

      • winstonsmith6079

        You forgot “first President to show the world what a HOT BUTT his wife has”.

          I found two articles in my files. When we run into Liberals, there is no sense in trying to explain anything to them. They are mentally ill:
