Michelle Obama – The Most Televised First Lady Evah … Let Them Watch Me on TV


Is it any wonder why Michelle Obama needs all those vacations, it is because of her busy schedule being the most televised First Lady ever … Does it really come as a shock to anyone that the media who has been in the pocket of Barack Obama would also have the first lady Michelle Obama on en mass as well? However, at some point it becomes overkill and the law of diminishing returns for any type of political asset for Barack Obama.

When she isn’t saying let them eat cake, Michelle tells them. let them watch me on TV

Lately, Michelle Obama is no stranger to television entertainment. She’s already outpaced past first ladies, like Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, in the number of TV appearances she’s made over the first four years of a president’s term.

Dan Gainor, of the Media Research Center, said Michelle Obama really is “off the charts” in the number of times she’s appeared in entertainment television cameos, even more so “than I dare say many big name actors and actresses.”

Whether the appearances are sincere or just political is up for debate. Democratic political strategist Doug Schoen suggested they were a little bit of both.

“I think they have a great asset and they’re using it,” Schoen said. “At its core, there is an election in seven months and it helps.”

Between 2001 and 2004, Laura Bush appeared in about 12 television shows — including “The Barbara Walters Summer Special,” “Larry King Live,” “The Tonight Show,” “Fox and Friends,” “The O’Reilly Factor,” “LIVE! with Kelly,” and “Sesame Street.” Since President Obama took office in 2009, Michelle Obama has appeared on television about 44 times, and that number continues to grow.

      I would like to add that I haven’t watched her once. No reason…just not interested in what she’s peddling.

      2- Dawg—I am not a huge Fan of Michelle Obama’s- but if you think she is fat- there is seriously something wrong with you.

      She may be a lot of things, but FAT isn’t one of them. To be frank, I actually like her sense of style. She always looks nice, got to give her that much!

      With all the people she has to serve her (tax payer dollars) just knowing they are usupers makes me sick
