Michelle Obama has a big butt…!? WHAT?!

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?!

  1. I actually think this is a political issue. Both of those men are Republicans. They are just trying to attack her with whatever they can. I wonder how their wives look? I'm not a big fan of the Obamas, but Michelle does have a pretty awesome bod! I, too, wouldn't mind having it.

  2. It's the way of the US. Want to ensure that everyone has health care? label it as evil socialism and tell hard working people they will be taking more money off you to pay for the lazy fat people with health issues.

    Want to invest in renewal energy? attack it as inefficient, wasteful and costly (because oil was perfect the day they discovered it).

    Same with living healthy. There is no profit in a healthy population that has weaned itself off toxic drugs and eating non processed goods.

    Unfortunately, most of the people in the US are too lazy to learn the truth themselves and to lazy to make their own mind up. They just listen to these people and repeat the comment as an excuse.

    Grrrr lol it's a sore subject for me, really gets me going lol.

  3. I have to agree with the other two comments.

    The government is a HUGE player in unhealthy America. Yes, we all make our own individual choices, but the government's pockets are lined by "processed corn". Read Ominvore's Dilemna or watch Food Inc.

  4. My only comment is on the comments made about Michelle Obama...all other political issues aside. I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat... what they said was wrong.

  5. Probably the ONLY thing I've agreed with coming out of this Administration is the things Michelle Obama has done to promote fitness and nutrition - especially when it comes to children. I think she's an excellent role model & would be quite happy to carry around her body. I think she's one of the most attractive First Ladys we've had since Jackie O. Not that looks matter... it's what our politicians actually DO that matter, which these days isn't much.

  9. Yeah its an inappropriate comment and pretty dumb considering that michelle obama is fit. I am not a democrat but even I see that. Its just plain obvious. But I have to agree those comments were angled in a political way Im sure. Look at the things people said about Sarah Palin and made fun of her for. It wont be the first time and wont be the last time someone says something untrue and hurtful about a politican. What matters is what we know to be true, and what real HEALTHY looks like.

  10. This is ridiculous, like I've said a millions times before, I would rather be healthy and fit than skinny and not healthy. I wish people would get that and stop making jackass comments like these.
