From all I can see, the Obama’s are good parents and if you have children you understand what a compliment I am giving them.

One thing that has bothered me about the Obama administration is the knocking down of decorum and tradition of the Presidency.

Obama has scaled back some as time wore on, probably due to advisors telling him he had to, from struting like a black rock star. He has also learned to salute the military.

Mrs. Obama has cleaned up her act as well from letting herself been seen within range of cameras with her panty line showing to acting quite respectable.

My question is, what the hell happened here?

I don’t want my First Lady acting in public like she’s a just-divorced woman going through an identity crisis at some nightclub. Ridiculous and embarrassing for any who value the office of the President over pop-culture.

She is the female version of him without some of the narcissism. She comes across as “brilliant”, caring, understanding, etc but if she is part of the mastermind behind all of these Marxist changes that seem to be happening in our government, all of the fluff that she represents up front is just window dressing. You think she wasn’t consulted on health care, the stimulus, our debt and lack of a budget? It would be a shame to waste all of that brilliance on ski trips and dance videos.

Or: Washington chain-saw massacre — we must scrape by on 97.7 percent of current spending! Or: Chaos is coming because the sequester will cut a sum $25 billion larger than was just shoveled out the door (supposedly, but not actually) for victims of Hurricane Sandy! Or: Heaven forfend, the sequester will cut 47 percent as much as was spent on the AIG bailout! Or: Famine, pestilence and locusts will come when the sequester causes federal spending over 10 years to plummet from $46 trillion all the way down to $44.8 trillion! Or: Grass will grow in the streets of America’s cities if the domestic agencies whose budgets have increased 17 percent under President Obama must endure a 5 percent cut!
