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!
* Thank you Wickipedia for these factoids.
Oh my. That Temptations hair on Barack is a hoot!
I kind of like him in well kept & trimmed dreads.....
How about that Michelle~ Honor student, treasurer, graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School--- what a slacker.
So elite, she skipped the 2nd grade!
Now hula-gate..... it just never ends!
Someone had fun photoshopping the hair.
I wonder if Michelle can also jump the ropes. She is a traditionalist perhaps?
Way fun. I loved hula hooping when I was 10... it's fabulous exercise.
Those Democrats are turning things upside down... Apparently there are national hula hoop regional competitions. Will we be seeing hundreds of top notch "hoopers" on the white house lawn?
I hope so!
I liked the 'dreads. Too much!
I loved my hula-hoop. Got so good I could even do it around my neck. And this was when they were very hard plastic ones, not like today where they have a little give! It's a wonder I didn't crush my windpipe (aaah, but it's all in the whip-whip motion). One time a friend & I crawled up on top of her roof & dangled our legs over the eaves & did hula-hoop ankles!
I'm impressed DK. I could do the basics. I'm getting vertigo just thinking about sitting on a roof doing ankle hula.
They do have x large weighted hoops these days. A local band that does all percussion Brazilian Carnival music has some open practice sessions in the summer. Some professional dancers come & bring their pro hula hoops.... they make it look easy as they swing the hoop over their head to do 1 arm/shoulder stuff. It takes more coordination than one would think!
I like the idea of a hula hoop a thon on the White House Lawn.
I think Barack looks cute with the hair on the center right. But, what do I know?
Oh sweet Jaysus, that is hysterical about Michelle Obama and the hula hoop.
It makes her seem even more down to earth doesn't it? ;)
LIB; ME TOO!
DUSTY- MAYBE THIS WILL BE THE NEW FITNESS CRAZE IN THE OBAMA ADMIN?
