First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will be heading to St. Louis, Missouri on Wednesday to attend game one of the Major League Baseball World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals. According to a release from the First Lady’s Office, the two women will participate in a pregame ceremony “to recognize Major League Baseball’s outstanding support of America’s veterans and military families as part of their Joining Forces initiative.”
Before the game, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden will host an event honoring military families at the St. Louis Veterans Center featuring “Hall of Famer and Army veteran Red Schoendienst.” There they will debut a new public service announcement put together by Joining Forces and MLB featuring New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Johnny Damon. The PSA will first air later that evening at the game.
The women will also field questions on the new initiative as submitted through MLB’s Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #AskMichelle.
#AskMichelle, According to CNN Money. Black unemployment has been roughly double that of whites since the government started tracking the figures in 1972. What specifically has your husband done to close the employment gap between the races?
I am loving it! – Nothing better than having the First Lady represent!
The dregs of society, malcontent, free loading 'occupiers' are publicly supported by the following:
* The American NAZI party
* The Communist party
* The Socialist Party
* Dictator, Hugo Chavez
* Dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
* Dictator, and traitor, barack obama !!!

Roughly 56% of homeless veterans are either black or Hispanic, despite only making up12,8% and 15,4% of the population respectively....so I would say that she and Dr. Biden are concentrating their energy on helping homeless veterans is a good thing.
May I ask Jay, what are you doing?
The question was, What specifically has your husband done to close the employment gap between the races?
I guess what you are saying the answer is nothing.
I would suggest reading "Top 5 Ways Obama's Jobs Bill Will Positively Affect African Americans" at newsone. com
What about the tax credits for hiring returning veterans? A $4000 tax credit for hiring the long-term unemployed? Prohibiting employers from discriminating against the unemployed when hiring?
A $4000 tax credit for hiring the long-term unemployed wold mean that those recently unemployed, or those that are looking to change jobs will be at a disadvantage. Interesting how Liberals will say that corporations are greedy, yet believe that the same corporations will implement this system fairly. What is to keep them from firing existing workers then turn around a hire long term unemployed? We will end up with a revolving door of tax credits.
Prohibiting employers from discriminating against the unemployed when hiring. Does this mean that an employer (greedy company) can not take into consideration that this person has not worked in two years? You know that you are actually saying that they can not take someone recent job experience into consideration.
This all proves the point that Liberals are better at living off of OPM (other peoples money) than creating wealth.
Jean, what about this...if President Obama was anymore focused on the 'gap' than he already is...working through his wifes' agenda, Jay would've been squealing favoritism, class war-fare, racism and anything else he could think of! He'd be whining...'Why just the blacks and the hispanics...I thought he was the President of all Americans'. Jay, you and 'ugly bus' McCain need to just hush! You lost OK?
Well you thought wrong Liz... HE has proved that. Not all of us believe what Al Sharpton stated.
Thank god I bought tickets for game 2.....
We had Mickey Mouse and Goofy for two terms 1.20. 2001 to1.20. 2009 ...that is the problem.
Al Sharpton stated? He stated what? What in the world are you talking about Bill? How has Obama proved what? I don't undertand your spin at all this time, really. I know you can't agree with anything Sharpton says, whatever it is you are referring to, yet agree with, support and cheerlead HERMANATOR CAIN, the 'YASSUH MASSUH' IDIOT! That's the only reason supremacists like him! There's a big ideological, and psychological difference between 'Coloreds', 'Negros', and blacks, and African Americans! TRUST ME!

John McCain just stood in front of American flags this past week and, in so many words, said that we should go to war with Russia becuase a little country on the border of Russia started ethnic cleansing and Russia stopped it, and becuase his campaign manager is a lobbyist for that little country! Think about what you're saying! Experience means nothing without judgement! And, for goodness sake, read/watch other news reports than FOX!
