  1. Dear Mrs. Obama, Thank You.

    You are truly one of the greats. Keep it up. We love you.

  2. As a contrast, Ann Romney signed a petition in Massachusetts seeking to outlaw marriage equality. The petition even went so far as to seek the end of domestic partner benefits.

    The difference could not be more stark.

  3. To all the gays who might vote for Romney - this is something you would never, ever see Ann Romney do.

  5. All that money, and she can't even get her teeth fixed.

  6. There's not a thing wrong with her teeth you ignorant f*cktard. You're no better than the trashy republicans who call her fat when in fact she is healthier than probably 95% of Americans. Our FLOTUS is smart, beautiful, and on our side, unlike the Stepfords the GOP keeps trying to sell.

  9. Michelle LOOKS A MESS IN THIS ARTICLE'S PHOTOGRAPH - PINK LIPSTICK ON BIG LIPS AND AN "Afrocentric" NECKLACE. "TACKY-TACKY." SHE MUST HAVE A NEGRO FASHION ADVISOR.

  10. Christopher Allen Horton, if you were any dumber, you'd be a Palin.

  12. You people redefine gullible. "Barack sits up nights reading letters from citizens and thinks how to help them?" What he thinks about is how to kill more jobs, slap restrictions on small business, wreck this economy and advertise more entitlement programs. What a joke! Fortunately, he will not be reelected. This will be a repeat of Reagan vs. Carter.
