Obamas kick off action packed Easter Egg roll

Washington (CNN) – With the Easter Bunny at their side, the first family opened up their backyard to 30,000 people from all 50 states for the annual action packed Easter Egg Roll on Monday.

As Colbie Caillat sang the national anthem, President Obama appeared on the Truman Balcony overlooking the South Lawn with the first lady, their daughters Sasha and Malia and his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson.

    Mr. President, listen to your wife. "Let's Move!" The American people are screaming for movement toward budget solutions, and moe importantly jobs. What was your plan for this year? Is it doin' watcha' doin' now? (I don't mean Easter Eggs.)

    I'm sure the right wing Obama haters will find something wrong with this too, even though it's a White House tradition.

    In our part of Texas SW of Fort Worth we are so thankful for some good rains after a long dry spell. Even as the weather station blared out warning of hail and tornadoes my thanks for the rains went upward. Thank you, God.

    I've enjoyed the First Family hosting this event every year. 30,000 people is quite alot of people to have in your backyard.

    Yeah yeah...and I suppose the Easter Eggs were all painted in a light sheen of LSD so the subliminal socialist indoctrination messages beamed out from the transmitter in the center of each would have an easier time turning them all into elementary school marxists. Shut up conservatives...seriously....you obviously have no idea how stupid and petty you sound, so just take the advice.

    I hope someone checked the orange eggs. We don't want any more of them hatching.
