        And on her way to London she'll make a quick stop at Marthas Vineyard, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Nice and Monaco. Her bags are probably already packed.

      Maybe Mrs. Obama will do us all a favor and shop around for a country that would accept your sorry a$$ as a citizen. There wouldn't be too many takers I'm guessing.

        Not too many takers. you say.
        Why you would know all have turned you down?

        Wow, what a pitiful piece of crap you are. Attacking the wife of a politician you care nothing about. Just shows the sorry state this country has gotten to.

      Her trip to the Olympics is nothing new! Others before her have done the same thing! Let's just stick with politics and lay off the personal attacks!

        It takes a decent human being to apologize! Well done!

        It becomes politics when she is only trying to get into the public eye to help her husband get elected. Also, why are we having someone represent America, when she said she has never been proud of America until her husband became president...

    How crazy are the dam republicans, when Mrs. Obama goes to the US Olympics, she represents the United States of America, not the Democrat or Republican Party.....”Please get over all the hate and divides, come together for once rather than have a tragedy bring us together. “USA 2012”

    You go FLOTUS!! Make us proud like you always do! Don't sweat the small stuff from the teaheads! They are grasping at whatever they can to continue trying to hurt your husband if that means trying to bash everything you say and do! We love you Michelle...keep up the good work!!

    Will the Olympics be on several channels or just NBC? Will they tape delay?

    March 14, 2012 at 5:16 am |
    • Steveo

      Since London is about 7-8 hours ahead, I hope it is tape delayed! I imagine it wlil also be on NBC related channels as well!
