Michelle Obama to visit 'Live with Kelly and Michael'

Her appearance will be the first lady's second time on the show this year. In June, she appeared on the show to promote her book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America. During that appearance, she also surprised a jump-roping team with a demonstration of her double-dutch jump-roping skills.

Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, appeared on the show in September where they talked about reality TV star Snooki, his pet peeve of Ann's method of squeezing toothpaste out of the tube, and an embarrassing moment of walking in on former President George W. Bush receiving a massage during a White House visit.

Last week, Mrs. Romney co-hosted ABC's "Good Morning America" with George Stephanopolous where she made her family's traditional Welsh cakes and interviewed a thoroughbred horse rider from the Paralympics games in London in August.

    Kelly, you might want to ask Michelle her thoughts on her husband trying to throw Sec. of State Hillary Clinton under the bus. and ask her if she is proud of that.

    "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that her agency was not the source of misinformation concerning the attacks, charging instead that the White House was the source of the false mantra that the murders were spurred by an anti-Muslim film made in the United States.

    Clinton told reporters that when Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her rounds on every Sunday morning news show to claim the film motivated the attacks, the information had been fed to her by the White House and not the intelligence community in the State Department or the CIA.

    Not only does Clinton’s statement contradict early White House accounts but directly contradicts statements made by Vice President Biden during the debate"

    Why don't you ask Amnesty Ann if she's proud of the fact her mansions and clothing were bought at the expense of pain and suffering INFLICTED on others, by her lying husband while she enjoys the benefits?

    As for the Susan Rice comment: you pigs are simply amazing. Do you really think you can "pick up" some of Hillary's supporters by suggeting lies like this? The Clinton's may or may not have gotten over Obama's win, but they are no fools either. Should ANY Clinton try and run for an office, they would need Obama's support just as much as he needs their support now.

    Why don't you ask yourself these questions:

    Where is W's support for Willard?
    Why isn't he as a former president, out stomping for Willard?

    Get back to us when you find out although the president will be reelected by then.

    I guess living in California does limit your abilities to think correctly.

    If you are ok with a President who after finding out that U.S. sovereign territiorty was attached, that our Ambassador and 3 other americans were killed, then fabricated a narrative to cover up the truth, and at the same time throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus, while jetting off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, if you think all of that is acceptable to you, then there is no hope for people like you.

    How about this Gale: she grew up on the South side of Chicago in a working class family (and the South side of Chicago is not Paradise)........she worked hard and got herself educated and had a promising professional career in her own right......married well and is a wonderful mother......and she serves us now as a first lady with class and a sense of service to our country. She is so much better than the picture drawn of her before the election (by people like you I suspect) that showed her as an America hating radical mad black woman. Whatever you think of her husband......she is the real deal.

  11. truth hurts

    As usual, it is ALL ABOUT the celebrity with the Obamas whether it is Michelle or Barry. Obama has recognized he doesn't have what it takes to lead the country so he's decided to just milk it for all he can. Dead ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya and a burning consulate gutted by terrorists? Just call it a demonstration and head out to your fund raiser in Vegas. It should tell everybody what they need to know about Obama. He truly is useless.

    @critical thinking

    And if you think the right approach is to go back to all the economic policies that brought this country to the brink of the worst financial disaster since our founding.......then I really have to question your ability to "think critically". And if you think it will serve our national interests throughout the world to have another saber rattling blowhard as our president.......then there is really no hope for people like you.

    Michele – here's some good advice for you – If you guys want to win- you really need to continue to focus on the people who have no idea it's an election year, or know nothing about what's going on. They say there's a lot of "un-decideds" out there, but I find that truly hard to believe. I mean, how could Anybody be an "un-decided" Voter ? LOL – – I honestly believe Romney is going to pull a "squeaker" – like he did in michigan . or else the supreme court will end up decideing this election. I also think this will be the "Mother of all elections" – – LOL – –

    In other words, you need to stay on shows like the view / leno / kimmel / letterman / regis philbin / jimmie fallon – & the list goes on. As a matter of fact, you might even try out the jerry springer show, I mean, they have no idea – other than what's going on in their Own Lives, I doubt if they are even interested in Voting.

    May the Best Man Win – 2012
    Hillary – 2016
    (we should have a "surplus" in 2018)

    @ Woman in California ...

    1. Any benefits the Romney's are enjoying ... they EARNED, and are spending their own money ... not ours.
    2. Hillary's supporters ??? Obama has trashed HIllary, and the State Department, in order to further his own career.
    3. Obama has spent 4 years demonizing, blaming, and destroying George Bush ... so, what good what it do for him to campaign for Romney ???

  15. Flipity Flop / Voter Suppressor Romney

    Flipity Flop. Flipity Flop. I wonder what Romney will change his mind on this week. Poor GOP, so insecure they will lose, they must take away voters' voice. They steal Obama's campaign signs. They sponsor bills to suppress voters. All that energy wasted.

    @California Gary

    I know all of you in California are concerned that if President Obama doesn't get re-elected you might actually need to solve your economic problems by yourselves. And if you and this President thinks that being passive and not standing up for fellow americans who are killed, then be prepared for more of the same.

    ---
    Four Americans killed are four too many and no president would want that to happen despite your inability to think so. However, thousands killed while searching for WMD are an even bigger issue, one that will never go away from the republican resume no matter how hard you want it to.

    As far as California is concerned, I think many here learned a lesson, never elect a rich republican to handle our economy and we won't make that mistake in this presidential election.
