While you and I have been lounging around waiting for old folks to die needlessly because we're against Obamacare, Michelle Obama has been doing the hard work on our behalf. She's visiting Copenhagen.
In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her "dear friend" and "chit-chat buddy" Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow's visit by President Obama, is a "sacrifice" on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. "As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days," the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, "so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home."
The first question that comes to mind is "which freakin' people are saying that spending several days in luxurious accommodations in Copenhagen is a sacrifice?" Because you need to get the Secret Service to keep them away from the president because they are seriously psychotic.
The level of self absorption in this administration is simply mind boggling and is probably exceeded only by their sense of entitlement.
And if you stopped to wonder why the president felt this is the best use of his time, you can stop worrying.
Mrs. Obama said bringing the Olympics to Chicago is especially important right now because "athletics is becoming more of a fleeting opportunity." "Funds dry up so it becomes harder for kids to engage in sports, to learn how to swim, to even ride a bike," she said. In addition, with childhood obesity on the rise, "it is so important for us to raise up the platform of fitness and competition and fair play," the first lady said.
Oh well, I've got to go apply for my government grant to teach my daughter to ride her bike.
