I'd never pictured Barack Obama in a James Brown hairdo..... too funny!
Now for a scathing expose about Michelle Obama......
Michelle graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. After completing her formal education, she returned to Chicago and accepted a position with the law firm Sidley Austin, and subsequently worked as part of the staff of Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, and for the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Hospitals.
Michelle Obama and her brother Craig skipped the second grade. Michelle squandered her high school years, on the honor roll for four years, took advanced placement classes, was a member of the National Honor Society and served as student council treasurer.
In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies. She worked there nearly four years and set fundraising records for the organization that still stood a dozen years after she left.
In 1996, Obama served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago, where she developed the University's Community Service Center. In 2002, she began working for the University of Chicago Hospitals, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May, 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs. She still holds the position, though she is working part time in order to devote more time to being a mother.
Michelle contributes more to the family finances, making much more than Barack's Senate salary of $157,082.
Michelle's Dirty Little Secret....
Here it is folks. What's behind all this hype about Michelle being a well educated, bright woman, mother of two children in wedlock?
Michelle Obama as well as her daughters are said to be avid hula hoopers. Barack Obama told People Magazine that one of his wife's secret talents is that she can really hoop. "She is the best Hula-Hooper I know. Once she gets the rhythm going, she can drop to her knees!"
That's right! Michelle Obama had been a closet Hula Hooper all these years.
This is the first I've heard about it, and AFTER the election!!!
Hrumph! Maybe that's why she can pull off wearing a dress like this & look great in it? The truth comes out... it always does....
So for all those talking heads who want to obsess over Michelle Obama with a focus on fashion..... give it up. The lady has a brain, and fully intends to use it!
