    Our president is a hop head..

    Just another reason he's a great leader.

    Just saw the O'Rielly vs. Obama interview and it's good to know that Bill O thinks the U.S. is a "tremendous country"

    What a hack.

    Good SUPERBOWL PARTY snacks, Mr & Mrs PRESIDENT! I hope you all have a wonderful time tonight! My husband and I are watching the game as well! We are PULLING for the PACKERS! Ignore the haters and have a good time!

      Only one question... how did you get Michelle to approve this ... not what you would call real healthy...

      February 9, 2011 at 1:38 pm |
      • Notfooled

        Easy she ate the salad. The rest were for the guests.

        If you listen to Michelle Obama she is not against unhealthy food, just doesn't recommend it on a daily basis. Jane

    Mr. President, i would like to attend your next Super Bowl Party! I will bring southern cooking to the White House!

    • ncmom

      So you do want to spend tax-payer money? Good Lord, you people have to talk crap about every move these people make. Wow, a superbowl party. Big deal. Nothing any other president wouldn't do.

      • TK

        At a time when we need to trime the budget and if the President and first lady had not spent millions on vacations. The fact that you have frozen government workers pay. Why then could you not pay for the party out of your own pocket like every other hard working america? Pleassssse just a party where does the luxury end?

        February 8, 2011 at 3:33 pm |
      • Afb

        They pay for their own vactions and buy their own food. Stop hating!

        February 9, 2011 at 12:52 pm |

        Really AFB ... the Obamas pay for the use of AF 1 and the secret service agents and the bullet proof cars while on vacation!!!!! Stop being dumb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm sure glad gas isn't heading towards $5/gallon, unemployment is way down and the Middle East isn't aflame.

    February 6, 2011 at 9:28 pm |
    • ncmom

      would gas prices have been affected by this party? I noticed quite a few Republicans showed up...

    So much for healthy living, The First Date says "let them eat veggies" while she is munching on Bratwurst, Kielbasa, Cheeseburgers and Ice cream.

    February 7, 2011 at 10:57 am |
    • Glenn

      Yes, a bit hypocritical to tells "us americans' how to eat healthy, have laws against salt and transfat for our "best interest", and this is what you serve? Serve a veggie bowl, tofu, and herb tea next time.

      February 7, 2011 at 5:33 pm |
    • Bob

      Look at her she is no picture of healthy eating.

      February 7, 2011 at 6:12 pm |
    • ncmom

      It's a superbowl party. This is not everyday food, but a party. Nothing wrong with party food in moderation and I think that's the message that our first lady is trying to get across. She said desert is not a right, not that you should never have treats. I'm glad people weren't so mean to Laura Bush. I would have been ashamed of that kind of behavior toward our first lady, just like you should be ashamed now.

      February 8, 2011 at 8:19 am |
      • Jay in NC

        "She said desert is not a right" It is not The First Date's place to tell me what my rights are. This administration is socialistic no doubt. It is only a matter of time before she starts crying about wanting another expensive party or trip on backs of the tax payer.

        As far as First Lady Laura Bush, Liberals vilified and made fun of her accent. Do a search on google images and you will find pictures of her as a monkey, and even worse hung in effigy. Look on youtube and you can find a 2007 video 'We hate Laura Bush' a vulgar song. 100s of videos calling her stupid and degrading. You should be ashamed of that kind of behavior toward our first lady, all Liberals should be ashamed.

        Just consider my comments payback for the way you all treated First Lady Laura Bush.

        February 8, 2011 at 10:49 am |
      • Peg

        Difference is, Laura Bush was a gracious, elegant, & classy First Lady. She didn't step off Airforce One in shorts even though at her age she would look better than Michelle. That picture will stay in my mind forever, making me have less and less respect for M.O. There is absolutely no comparison between the two first ladies. P.S. The Bushes have more class.

        February 9, 2011 at 8:30 am |
      • Mr. Sluggo

        Laura Bush was recently caught on video- by CNN- bragging about her "firm thighs" and saying that Michelle Obama's thighs "are not in the same league". How classless.

        February 9, 2011 at 1:27 pm |
      • ncmom

        Well Jay, I guess I wasn't on YouTube looking for people to insult Laura Bush. I am not a Liberal and whoever did that should be ashamed. I thought Laura Bush was a classy lady and would never talk like that about a first lady. I'm sure you can get on the internet and see someone call Mother Theresa a whore, but who wants to listen to crazy people and then imagine that an entire portion of society must feel the same way.

        February 10, 2011 at 7:21 am |
      • ncmom

        Yeah, I'm sure ALL LIBERALS were trashing Laura Bush. All of them, Jay? I never even heard one person in the 8years her husband was in office talk bad about her. Yet I have to hear people like you on a regular basis degrade our first lady as ugly. Do you know how much money was spent on Laura for travel? Probably not because it really doesn't matter.

        February 10, 2011 at 7:27 am |
      • Jay in NC

        "I never even heard one person in the 8 years her husband was in office talk bad about her." Are you serious. Please go back and read my other post about the youtube videos and google images of First Lady Laura Bush. I think you only hear about The First Date is because you are now paying attention.

        February 10, 2011 at 12:32 pm |
    • Nurse Lisa

      VILIFIED Laura's accent?! PUH-LEASE- how many tears did you shed over this Jay? And if you thought it was wrong in the past, then behaving the exact same way now is only payback if you're a bully and in grade school not some higher moral ground.

      maybe she had mostly salad, dont be so quick to judge, even if she didn't eat salad

  8. Useful idiots all

    Brad, maybe if you learned to spell you wouldn't be working on a Sunday night making minimum wage. Get an education, work hard to educate yourself and you can quit your job at the gas station. Then you can have a Super Bowl party too.

    LeRoy, gas isn't heading towards $5 a gallon, unemployment is at its lowest in three years and the entire Middle East isn't "aflame" because it consists of more than Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt. Try reading a map once in a while, just make sure you don't use the FoxNews maps because they think Egypt is where Iraq is and Iraq isn't in the Middle East.

    Jay in NC, did you miss the "Salad" listing on the menu? I'm also sure they had crudite (that means a veggie platter) as well, it just wasn't listed on the menu. Besides that, Michelle Obama has also said indulging is fine provided it's done in moderation and really who could argue with that? Oh, right, a redneck from NC.

    Useful idiots all.

    • Jay in NC

      Yep calling me a redneck sure makes your point. You are also a little arrogant. Stating that "I'm also sure they had crudite." Well I am sure that they all sat around and painted each others toes but that does not make it true.

      February 8, 2011 at 10:52 am |
    • Bob

      Easily led simple person. You just can't see the actual people for who they are, they are lying, manipulative people who don't give a rats behind about you or anyone else. They were handed such an awesome opportunity to do so much and blew it by showing there true colors. They don't care.

    I wonder if he billed JLo & Marc Anthony for the whole party after all the idiot owes the IRS more than 3 million dollars.

    It's just a chosen 'project' of the FIRST LADY to work towards inciting AMERICANS to a deeper consciousness of enacting a 'healthier living' lifestyle, along with good eating choices! However, since I wasn't there, I don't know what SHE was munching on; but I do know this, many AMERICANS fall off diets, and splurge a little bit at parties! SO WHAT? You just get back on the wagon, afterwards! I don't think she was making YOU that suggestion; YOU can just keep on eating what you want to eat! OK? Best wishes!

    February 7, 2011 at 2:19 pm |
  11. Anne

    I am on a Smart Heart diet myself and you can actually eat those items at times but not on a regular basis. You can get sausage that is turkey based and is really good, extra lean beef for burgers with low fat cheese, dips made with yogurt, yogurt ice cream. There is nothing wrong with having a few chicken wings or a small piece of pizza. I have never felt deprived.

    February 7, 2011 at 4:18 pm |
  12. Bob

    Unbelievable, oh nope wait a minute it's Bozo and his wife so it is quite believable tell the rest of the country what they should and should not be eating as you lay out a very unhealthy spread according to your statements. But, again to be expected of the both of you. Hypocrits in so many ways, 2012 can not get here soon enough.

    February 7, 2011 at 6:09 pm |
    • queen bea

      actually its only unhealthy if it is an everyday thing, come on people use your brains.

      February 9, 2011 at 5:54 pm |
      • Jane

        THE FIRST lady just says to limit food thats unhealthy not to do away with ice cream or special day treats. I am sure her kids get birthday cake and ice cream, its common sense. Jane

        February 10, 2011 at 8:32 am |
    • Notfooled

      You're a BOZO if you listen to everything someone says. No one can make you do anything. If you don't want to listen then don't. The rest of us will eat healthy and if we want to cheat at a Super Bowl Party then we will do that too. BIG DEAL.

    That's just gonna add to those "Oversized Load" hips that horse mouth Michelle is packing on. Can't wait to see how big she gets before 2012.

  14. Carrie

    Enough already! It's one day for crying out loud. Nobody ever said you can't eat some of this stuff once in awhile in moderation. Since when is it ever bad to encourage people to try to eat a healthier diet? That doesn't mean never ever have anything "bad". Just try to do better most of the time.

    February 8, 2011 at 4:56 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      I do not think you have been reading the news. They are trying to ban the amount of sodium in a can of soup. As if that would stop someone from adding salt.

      February 8, 2011 at 5:17 pm |
    • Bob

      It's one thing to suggest people eat healthier it is another to tax certain products to encourage you to eat better, I take it you will feel better when it becomes law the government telling you what you can and can't feed your child. True believers lead by example, they are morons

      February 8, 2011 at 5:38 pm |
      • Notfooled

        Bob stop watching Glenn Beck or listening to Sarah. That will never be a law and even if the boogie man comes and it does you can cheat. We don't have enough food police to watch 300 million people.

    as if Palin and the rest of the US didn't have he same types of treats on their Superbowl buffets. Striving to eat healthier and getting kids toplay outside is a good goal, not an infringement of one's rights or a socialist agenda. Besides if unhealthy foods make you sicker sooner we'll need that terrific health care reform to be in place.

    February 8, 2011 at 5:51 pm |
    • Peg

      How did Palin get thrown into this discussion? Just can't leave her alone can you? You guys are so afraid of her the only thing you can think of to do is throw verbal insults. GO SARAH GO!

    To you haters who just can't stand the fact that the PRESIDENT had a SUPER BOWL PARTY; ate PARTY FOOD at the SUPER BOWL PARTY, just like SO many other AMERICANS did, GET OVER IT! In one breath you clowns are quick to call him 'uppity or elitist', out of touch with normal AMERICA; not like us. In the next breath, Oh, he shouldn'be having a party; he shouldn't be doing this or that! When he shows himself as a regular AMERICAN, participating in regular AMERICAN activities, something is wrong with THAT! SICK!

    February 9, 2011 at 9:54 am |
    • Bob

      The President is an immoral, lying piece of crap. He is far from a regular AMERICAN. Simple minded people believe everthing the clown tells them. Stop and think about what he says and does, I mean seriously this clown had an awesome oppotunity and he didn't even come remotely close to doing all he said he was going to do. HE LIED.

  18. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Speaking of LAURA BUSH, if any of you were paying ANYattention to her cycle of interviews on talk shows, especially on 'OPRAH', she sat up there and told you LOONS, that 'FIRST FAMILIES' has to pay for their own food, buy their own clothes, like everybody else! They just got to live in the WHITEHOUSE! She also said anytime she and the FORMER PRESIDENT BUSH had an unofficial private party, they certainly did have to buy their on food and drinks for the entertainment! YOU BUNCH OF HATEFUL, JEALOUS HEATHENS!

    • Jay in NC

      I don't watch Harpo, she is a racist and no class. Who can forget the show where she asked a woman 'So, you have let men ejac#% on your face?' The FCC should fine her. But that is the Liberal way isn't it. They make movies that are packed with curse words, GD this and that. Their vice presidents, O'Biden, drops the F-bomb on live TV and the Liberal TV just laughs about it. Liberal comedy shoes are full of beeps.

      This is the same person that interviewed The First Date. Hapro has no class.

      don't be so mean sitting behind your screen, the things you dish out in thought and in words can come back an bite you in the behind (meaning your calling her fat now but if you are not already fat yourself you might gain a few its called karma and it come back around out of nowhere:)

      February 9, 2011 at 6:00 pm |
  20. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Well Jay, I'm almost sure that one show soured your desire to watch the OPRAH SHOW ever again! But you missed out on lots of 'facts'! Is that one show the reason you didn't watch your favorite CLASSY 'FIRST LADY'? Oh yeah! Your favorite PRESIDENT BUSH came on her show, too, so evidently they don't think she's classless! The truth is, if she were supportive of your 'conservative' way of thinking and had supported McCAIN and PALIN; at the least HILLARY, you would've forgotten all about that ONE show! LOL!

    February 9, 2011 at 6:04 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      Liz, never said that I like President Bush, just do not like it when some tells lies about him. I have always made it clear that he should not have started the wars, however I will defend his legal right to do so. I also believe that he did not create the economic problems that we enjoy today. But now it is Barry's time in the sun. Every day I just visit CNN and see one more reason for his unelection.

    Jay, I don't like it when people tell lies, or may I say embellish the truth with lies, against PRESIDENT OBAMA either; and I certainly don't like people who continue to disrespect and attack him and his wife, personally! EVERYDAY IT'S SOMETHING?!?@Bob; No, I'm not Aunt Esther from Sanford & SON; I loved her, but she died years ago; wish I had been one of her giftees! However, she taught me how to discern a HEATHEN when we saw, heard, or ran into one! You fit the definition completely! LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

    I'm tired of this crap. Obama is nothing more then a character in his own reality show. You never heard about kind of crap when Bush was in office...and BUSH HAD A HIGHER APPROVAL RATING. What you see here is a direct result of liberal media pampering. WTF.

You really don't sound like anything other than a biased bigot to me! PRES OBAMA is SO a regular AMERICAN! And no, I'm far from simpleminded; I think DEEP before I LEAP! I read the BIG PICTURE!

      New York Times, Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” Nicholos Kristof wrote Obama recited, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent," the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer.

      I"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
      Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
      I witness that there is no god but Allah
      I witness that there is no god but Allah
      I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "

    @ncmom; Thanks for your comment on the claimed LAURA BUSH assault. I meant to question that myself to Jay! He said liberals put her down and that gives him the right to put MICHELLE OBAMA down! I'm like you! I rather liked LAURA BUSH; I admired her tactfulness, compassion and courage to support, as his WIFE, the BUSH FAILED AGENDA! I thought she had more sense than he did; and mostly everyone I knew thought the same about her. We laughed and said she would probably leave him after he got out of office! LOL!

    @Bob; you still didn't answer my question! Maybe we haven't had to play the race card before because we never had an AFRICAN AMERICAN president before, but boy since he even started running for the office, the 'white sheets and cone hats' came right out of their closets, and have been battering this senator-turned-president for at least 4 years! You silly clowns in denial; we are not blind, deaf nor dumb, OK? You all can't 'BOO' me at all, by sneering and making light of my so obvious observation of racism!
