Michelle Obama Visits Arlington And Old Codger Has A Crush (Slideshow)

First Lady Michelle Obama visited Arlington National Cemetery’s Women in Military Service for America Memorial Center in Virginia Tuesday. While she met with female veterans and spoke on veteran issues, CNN Jack Cafferty went full swoon over his belle, Michelle.

NEW YORK (CNN) — I think I am developing a crush on America’s first lady. Michelle Obama is more compelling than her husband. He’s good, but she’s utterly fascinating.

Mrs. Obama has blown away the stale air in a White House musty from eight years of the Bushes. It’s like the sun came out and a fresh spring breeze began wafting through the open windows.

It’s the people’s house, and Michelle Obama totally gets it. So much so that she has taken to inviting people in from the streets to see her home. Nice touch — one completely lacking in her recent predecessors.

Watch her when she visits a local school and you see the warmth and affection she instantly triggers in people. Kids are pretty much totally honest with very good BS-detectors. If they sense you’re a phony, forget it. But around the first lady, they want to hug her and laugh with her and tell her stories.

“Fascinating?” “A fresh clean breeze?” Cafferty, what are you trying to say? Are these digs at the former First Lady’s “Smoking habit, what smoking habit?” You weren’t beguiled by the friendly, folksy librarian from Midland, TX? (Home of some delicious eatin’. I would know. I lived there for one HORRIBLE year-and-a-half. Don’t forget to drink at “The Bar” or they’ll shoot the dog. I still dream of your sesame chicken friendly ladies at Quo’s! I will always cherish our conversations in broken English!)

Where were all Laura’s love letters, Jack?

Much like Andre Leon Talley’s Vogue piece on Michelle, the love note goes on and on way past my normal a mount of “OMG! She’s so awesome” gushing. But, of course, I’m one to talk, as I’m hooked on Michelle photo crack and I don’t care who knows.

But apparently no one is immune from First Lady fever. Not even CNN’s second crankiest codger. (Lou Dobbs would be number one, BTW.)

    The funny thing about Cafferty is that the man still looks the same. He was anchoring in New York in the late ’70s and he hasn’t changed one bit. I guess he was prematurely old back then. Jack lost his wife not long ago (may she RIP), and being single and middle-aged can leave you howling at the moon.

    good god you lived in midland for a year. I am so happy you escaped. I live in denton texas and its a very progressive two college town. the only other place I would move to in texas would be austin. Damn girl I have a new level of respect for you.

    Fetishes are best kept in the bedroom. Jack Cafferty is a prime example of irresponsible and inappropriate commentary. I’ll bet Michelle Obama is nauseated by this kind of ‘attention.’ I know I am. Keep your wet dreams to yourself, Jack-off!

    how out of touch will getting a stylist make her look? i quite disagree on the stylist thing, how many everyday Americans have stylists? especially in these economic times?as to the Jack thing, I knew his liberal behind was all for the Obamas, but I was a little surprised at the love note to Michelle Obama…but then I have no mouth to talk, because in my world Mrs. O does no wrong!!! So im in the same boat at Cafferty! lol
