    The scrutiney on Mrs. Obama is the same old double standard that every African American woman and man face at work everyday. This is nothing new to us. It's just this is the first time it has been shown and the highest level in the land. Petty and unfair but the same old same old...

    What is that that has irked the election of President Obama so much to some people they can not wait for him to govern. When are American people going to be given the respect they deserve by the media and the republicans?
