Michelle Obama: Leader


Parade Magazine: Michelle Obama On The Move: What Will She Do Next?

Nearly five years after moving into the White House, Michelle Obama could not look more at home. Posing in the formal Green Room, she appears both relaxed and invigorated, embracing the undefined (and undefinable) roles of Spouse in Chief, Role Model in Chief, and Mom in Chief. But it’s the last one that makes the first lady shine brightest of all. Put her in a room with kids—whether her own or the nation’s—and she glows. In fact, at the second annual Kids State Dinner on July 9, Mrs. Obama beamed at the success of 54 students who won a nationwide competition, sponsored by, to develop creative, delicious, and healthful recipes.

An outgrowth of her Let’s Move! program to curb childhood obesity within a generation, the State Dinner (which happened at lunch) featured dishes like Lucky Lettuce Cups and Bodacious Banana Muffins, as well as an appearance by her husband, whom she playfully tweaked for admitting he’d hated vegetables as a kid. As she sat with Parade the following day, Mrs. Obama was regal in a magenta sheath yet so down-to-earth that she quickly fluffed the cushion of an antique couch between photo takes. No longer sporting the bangs that caused such a sensation (“You know, it’s hard to make speeches with hair in your face!”), the first lady spoke to us about her second-term goals for her childhood obesity fight, her maturing family, and her dreams for America’s children.

“The cynics may be the loudest voices – but I promise you, they will accomplish the least”


Open letter to President Obama’s haters:

To your distress, for most of the rest of your life, you will bear this: That Barack Obama, will always be President. He will always be the man from a mixed race background that became the President of the US, he and his wife will be welcomed throughout the world by nations and their leaders, the most influential members of the arts and sciences will be their acquaintances and companions. He will be regarded and honored as the President who entered office during a deep recession and two wars and turned the country around.

But you; You will always justify your lack of achievement on the unfairness of every system, your lack of success on the government or regulation, your failure to accomplish anything in a country where impoverished immigrants with limited language skills are succeeding around you on the liberals or the communists or the elites.

The small satisfaction you garner while spouting derisive comments here only exists in your self-delusion and is a pale comfort compared to the reality that exists around you. You can try to salve your bitter existence with theories of international Kenyan plots or document fraud, whatever. But that is your future. Your world will always be limited by your small-mindedness, your associates will always consist of those that are just as poorly adapted to the world around them too. Your accomplishments will be non-existent and your life a bitter existence. It’s time to move on. In your journey into denial, you’ve already sacrificed your conscience and whatever claim to character you had.


Your pretense at a deity derived morality is mocked by your myopic hatred of the ‘other’. Your concept of patriotism is waving a child’s flag on the sidelines as others defend your liberty. Bush 41 and spouse are living into their nineties, the Obama’s will too. You’ll see them at the inaugurals, your TV will tell you of their lives and that of their daughters, of their successes and their trips and the books they write and their accolades.


Make it easy on yourself. Take a deep cleansing breath and just let go, make the best of your situation. He will always be the 44th President of the US, and your children and their children will read of him in their history books, the first black man elected president of the US. And when he leaves office, he will be healthier and wealthier than he is as President, and he will be remembered as a person who was always willing to make sacrifices for you and your children; even though you hated him. Future generations will always love him for his uncanny ability to put up with people like you and your bullshit. But for now, just remember that you still live in a free country made more safe and prosperous by your President, and he, the First Lady and their children will always have you in their prayers.
