"Lay Off My Wife"

with 9 comments

Since The Snob cannot keep track of all the TV interviews the Obama gives I’m always happy when someone hips me to a very good sound bite and this one is delicious. Mostly because this is what I love right here. This is what I live for–A man willing to throw down for his wife. Papa Snob didn’t play people disrespecting Mama Snob (not even me when I was a mouthy teen). Grandpa Snob didn’t take no mess towards Granny Snob and Obama says you’re walking into a world of hurt when you mess with Michelle. That’s how it’s done. That’s what every woman wants. Fight for your girls, wives, mothers, grandmothers, daughters and lady friends and they will fight for you, fellas! We’re supposed to take care of one another and fight for each other. You can have your issues with Obama the candidate, but Obama the “back up off my woman” guy? Priceless.

The Obamas Go To Oregon (And More Michelle In Puerto Rico)

with 8 comments

It’s time for another Obama Family Album!

A few observations:

1) Michelle appears to have the magically shortening and expanding hair 99 percent of all black women poses as her hair seemed shorter in Puerto Rico but was its usual bob length in Oregon.

2) As a few posters noted in a different Michelle thread, mainly Snob reader Andrea who is on a natural hair campaign, the Obama girls actually have their hair done up in more natural, little black girl styles. They’re still adorable. But enough chit chat! PICTURES!

You Scream, I Scream, the Obama’s Scream for Ice Cream

Barack and Michelle hit up a pair of ice cream parlors/concession stands in Oregon and brought the girls to on in Milluakie.

The Obama’s had their niece, Leslie Robinson with them. I believe she’s the daughter of Michelle’s brother, but don’t quote me on that. You can tell she’s related to Michelle. My God. She looks more like her than Malia.

Then, later, the Obama’s, just Michelle and Barack got some more ice cream at Prince Puckler’s in Eugene and visited a concession stand. I think the woman at the concession stand below is a wee bit happy to see The Great Hope Mongerer.

Getting the Rally Started in Portland!

And here’s a miscellaneous shot of Michelle and Barack at an assisted living facility in Gresham.

And More Parlaying in Puerto Rico

Decked on in a white summer sweater set and black skirt, Michelle dressed conservative but still towered over the rest, quite literally, because she was taller than most of the dignitaries she was pictured with below. (And in flats nonetheless. If she owns any heels, my God. She would be lethal. She’s the same height as her Secret Service detail.)

*All pictures byThe Associated Press. If you find yourself some gratuitous Obama Family activity, tell me where and I will find the photos!
