This past weekend The First Family watched the USA women play Japan in the World Cup soccer final and they all had their shoes off, game faces ON. USA lost, but ... hey! We got a totally cute family photo out of it. So we're all winners (if you're into Obama Photos and if you read my blog about 80-90 percent of you are.) Side note: I think Malia Obama's entire leg is probably taller than I am.

Michelle Obama wrapped up her trip to South Africa and Botswana over the weekend. The First Lady visited the two southern African countries to meet and speak with young people, promote youth education, health and awareness, do a few push-ups with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and perform her duties as First Lady with a little soft diplomacy. Needless to say, it looks like everyone enjoyed each other. In a White House produced video, Mrs. Obama talked about meeting Nelson Mandela, one of her many highlights from the trip.
First Lady Michelle Obama, along with daughters Sasha and Malia, and "First Grandmother" Marian Robinson, is in the midst of a six-day trip to Africa, where she is currently visiting South Africa and will later visit Botswana. Tuesday, Mrs. Obama, her mother and daughters all got to meet activist-turned-political prisoner-turned-President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, resulting in me, once again, badly wishing I was either A) Michelle Obama, B) Sasha Obama, C) Malia Obama or D) Marian Robinson.
I'm not picky. I'd be happy to be any of them!
While the First Lady is in South Africa and the President is on Twitter, some footage has surfaced of the President's magical baby shushing skills. Watch a pro and learn. Also, Michelle's "Oh, the baby would stop crying for you!" and Barack's "Now, now. I got this!" faces are priceless.
CONTROVERSY! The co-star of "Just Wright" and one of the stars of "Why Did I Get Married" parts one and deux are crazy radicals who hate the police and black men who date white women! And First Lady Michelle Obama is an unrepentant fan as she invited the two, amongst many others, to recite poetry at the White House.
But you can tell she really just wanted to get down. Even though she said she couldn't fully participate because she didn't know all the dance moves to Beyonce's routine, created to be part of the First Lady's "Let's Move" initiative, you can tell Michelle Obama totally wants to be set free from the constraints of "polite society" and break it down. Lose all control, in fact. Get mad stoopid with it. Not give an "F," and such.
But she cannot break it down. SOCIETY WON'T LET HER! :(
So Andrew Brietbart had a cartoon on his Big Government blog depicting the first lady as a fat hypocrite for advocating healthy eating and exercise and now Rush Limbaugh has coughed up some phlegm to call her a hypocrite for eating short ribs and veggies for dinner while simultaneously not possessing a Sports Illustrated ready swimsuit body. It's the latest thing in Obama hate regarding things that have absolutely nothing to do with his governing! The only thing wrong with all this is that 1) Michelle Obama is not fat and is quite muscular and athletic and 2) Really? Fat calling?
Today on The Loop 21 I have a post up mocking a recent column on FOX News' Web site that makes the First Lady's initiatives to fight childhood obesity sound like Marxist plots ... against childhood obesity. A little persepective is in order, but I doubt some folks will ever get it.
