I don’t care what side of the political spectrum you’re on…but saying Michelle Obama has a big butt is out of line. According to this article from the Huffington Post, Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner was quoted saying, “She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself."
WHAT? Did I miss something!? THIS woman has a big butt?!
I don’t think so. Michelle Obama is gorgeous. I’d be very happy with her figure! I would LOVE to have her arms—you can tell she works hard for them. She is curvy and beautiful.
What really outrages me is Rush Limbaugh’s comment, “The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice...I'm trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."
This is the biggest misconception with health and fitness. Health and fitness are not measured by how ‘Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue ready’ you are. It has to do with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. Just because a girl looks good in a swimsuit does not mean she is healthy. Why am I not surprised that men are making these statements? Women are expected to meet these impossible standards imposed upon them! Women come in all shapes and sizes. Being obese is another matter because it poses serious health risks. Michelle Obama is thin and trim. She should not have to be attacked on that level.
I commend Michelle Obama for what she has done to make America healthier and get kids more active. Growing a garden at the White House is a good example for all of us. America has serious issues with obesity and her work to combat it is commendable.
Michelle Obama, don’t listen to them! You are beautiful! Oh and by the way, how did you get those arms?!
