The New First Lady

As we were watching the news, I saw Michelle Obama on the TV talking to a bunch of kids in the White House. I turned to the GF and said this verbatim:

"You know....unlike Lara Bush, whenever I see the new first lady on TV I don't want to punch her in the face."

I know it's just a photo op, but whenever I would see Lara Bush talking to a bunch of kids (and reminding us for the thousandth time about how she used to be a librarian), it looks really phoney and manipulative. Like Hitler sending out Eva Braun to drum up popular support.

The new first lady actually comes across as a decent person. As does the pres. That doesn't really mean much, but hell it's a lot more than anyone in the Bush family could ever muster.

And she's hot.

The "GF" ???

You are Soooo into commitment Ninja...

L Bush is (I think) a real nice small town girl,who I think,in the situation she was placed in,did as good a job as many of (us?) would have done and better than some...

Your intolerance,criticism and anger ("punch her in the face") ("Eva Braun") continue to be 100% unNinjalike,are are going to get you in a whole shitlaod of trouble one of these days...(If you talk like that to the wrong guy...

"just saying"...

I hear that! She seems much more natural and approachable. Laura Bush seemed a little bit stiff and "royal" with her seemingly endless supply of blue suits.

They're so cute TOGETHER, too. Other First couples just totally seemed like they were faking it. The O's seem like they're really still in love, and it's beautiful.

I'd have to say I absolutely, 100% agree with you. Laura Bush always looked/seemed fake to me.

I am totally agree with sara's opinion. I think she is saying quite right. Her behavior is very natural. I really like her style and way of talking.
