Mrs. Obama’s relationship advice to girls

London (CNN) – First lady Michelle Obama confessed she didn’t see the presidency in Barack Obama’s future when they first met over 20 years ago.

Mrs. Obama jokingly responded with “absolutely not” when a high school student asked the first lady, “when you first met the president did you think he would go on to do such great things?”

    "I will put $15K on the table right now if an insurance company comes to me and says that they will take that $15K and nothing more in order to insure an uninsured 70 year old man or woman with 3 of the most common ailments for people in their age group...let's say age-related diabetes, hypertension/arthersclerosis and maybe something structural, like knee or hip joint problems.

    I'm waiting."
    Oh, and I forgot to mention that they have to do it while running only a 3% overhead like Medicare currently does so that I know that my money and the money of my fellow taxpayers isn't going to waste for 7 to 8 figure salaries and an average of 20-25% overhead like the private insurance industry pretends is necessary.

    My advise to Obamas is; lot of work ahead to clean up the mess that idiot Bush and Reagan did, just clean it up with broom, then you advise...o.k, American are changing as Obama says, change, change, we expect net result...I mean "Net Result". Not empty promises....good luck, lady, listen, we still love you guys...American....

    Mrs. Obama genuinely likes people and children. You cannot fake that.
    She is a wonderful example of what somebody can become if you work hard. She also, just like the President, seems to have a good sense of humor. You have to learn to laugh at yourself and have thick skin in this world.
    They re both great parents. I am pretty sure that we won't see the Obama girls as high school dropouts or pregnant and unwed or living with two guys for the sake of reality tv or blogging racists hateful comments.
    What a diffefence from the trailer trash from AK!

    We are true products of our environment; physically, morally, and spiritually. We are what we consume.

    “when you first met the president did you think he would go on to do such great things?”
    The youth of the world has been bombarded with Obama propaganda. The only "great" thing he will have done is leave office after one term. He has been an unmitigated disaster for this country.
