Video: The obligatory “Michelle Obama rolls her eyes at Boehner” clip

posted at 6:01 pm on January 21, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Sooper Mexican, you can tell the left’s feeling good today by the fact that there are liberal publications trumpeting this too. I kind of like it just because it’s true to the real spirit of the moment. For all the forced chumminess between the two sides, that eyeroll is a perfect summation of the Lightbringer’s approach to the GOP since, oh, at least last January. While he was up there today intoning about the glory of America and how the only way to stay true to the Founders’ vision is to subvert it while paying lip service to it, Mona Charen was keeping her eye on the ball:

We interrupt this orgy of Obama worship to recall that his campaign huddled early in 2012 and reflected that they could not run on his first-term record. Accordingly, the strategy was “Kill Romney.” Congratulations. That what we’re celebrating today.

They killed him and now the new task is to kill the GOP by implying that they want to starve children or, at least, let them be murdered occasionally in the name of protecting gun rights. Why clink glasses under those circumstances? If I found myself seated next to Harry Reid or Pelosi and forced to make small talk, I’d turn into Jim Carrey at the hotel bar in “Dumb and Dumber” within five minutes. FLOTUS’s reaction is the first and probably last honest moment you’ll see from either side all day. It beats listening to a phony lecture about “name-calling” from President Above The Fray, no?

Call me crazy, but that looks like an “empathetic” roll of the eyes… like he’s said something like “and those goddamn norwegians, can you believe those guys?” and the roll of her eyes is an affirmation of his sentiment.

Obviously, we won’t know what she’s rolling her eyes at until we know what Boehner is saying there, but don’t be too quick to assume that she’s rolling her eyes AT him.

Tom_Shipley on January 21, 2013 at 8:48 PM

Yes, clearly that was a comment about Norwegians.

My God you’re stupid.

I get its a conservative site. But that’s no excuse for some of the disgusting attacks on the first lady. Attacking a politician’s policies is one thing, but their families are off-limits.

Did the WH fire the team of consultants hired to soften Michelle’s image? Or was that just to get through reelection.
I get the feeling Michelle is not thrilled about jumping through hoops.
I think we’re about to see Michelle thumb her nose at taxpayers–more Spain trips, lobster lunches, his/her jet and limo rides, glitzy WH parties.
What are the consequences?
The media will polish her image and protect the Obama legacy.
But if Michelle is going to unleash her real self it sure will be fun to watch.

Why is the right so mad about this? She threw a little shade, why does that mean she hates all white people? The Bidens are white, they spend a lot of time together. She does lots of events with white people nearly every single day. She just doesn’t like John Boehner….this hardly makes her unique.

Each and every day, Gracie? I’m sure you can back up your claim with evidence from the First Lady’s Public Schedule, which is online.

As a college teaching assistant, I’m sure you’re familiar with the P-BS series “In Performance at The White House”. Enjoy this episode from 2011, where Michelle and her Mom reluctantly sit in the front row and then share their mutual distaste for a traditional American Art form…

Where’s the evidence that she knows better? I recall reading several stories about Michelle Obama in Chicago, after Barry had been elected to the U.S. Senate, which featured Michelle rudely elbowing aside guests at various buffet functions, while arrogantly announcing “I’m the Senator’s wife” to the people she butted in front of.

Illinidiva on January 21, 2013 at 9:48 PM

Those poor lobsters…

Seven Percent Solution on January 21, 2013 at 9:03 PM

Not to worry, there are plenty of them-in recent years here in northern New England there has been something of a lobster population explosion, and we’ve seen them selling at many times for less per pound than ground beef. Even then, I only bother to get some about 3 or 4 times a year, mainly for lobster rolls (the only way to go).

What’s so bizarre about Michelle’s (not that she’s alone in this regard, to be fair) obsession with lobster is that it was always a Poor Person’s Food, and was always eaten as such. When you eat steamed lobster in the raw, so to speak, you wear a bib, and always get your face and your hands messy.

Lobster is only a “delicacy” to those who have never lived close enough to Maine to over the years become totally used to them (or totally sick to death of them).

But of course, our Dear Leaders probably sliced their lobster tails and ate them with a small fork, a la Mr. Pitt with the candy bar. Hoi Polloi, indeed!

Question for our Dear Leader Kneepads here: if live Maine Lobster’s market price in D.C. was less per pound than a pound of ground beef hamburger, would it still appear on the WH menu?

Del Dolemonte on January 21, 2013 at 9:53 PM

I actually think that this video humanizes them, it shows that Obama and Michelle are not fakers, they’re real people. They eat like real people, not like some stuckup royalty. I may not agree with 100% of Obama’s policies, but I respect him as a man, and that is very important at the end of the day.

Wow.. So my parents were wrong when they emphasized table manners . Heck, I went to a function at business school a few years ago that was about using the right fork, knife, etc and proper dinner etiquette. The fact that the President and First Lady of the U.S. don’t have the same courtesies that 22-year-old recent graduates are expected to have and their supporters cover up for them is quite disturbing.

Here’s the pos’s ugly squash-faced, marble-mouthed, hooker-wigged beard rolling her eyes at John Boehner while stuffing her mug with the 3000 calorie inaugural lunch.

What a classless disgusting couple.

Notice the pos is wiping his nose and not eating too much. Must be that coke. No problem. The pos’s beard eats enough for 100.

Barbarians in the WH.

Check her tasteless non-existent table manners; arm resting on table, darting down to the plate like a pig scoffing down chow instead of placing food on fork and raising it to her mouth like civilized people.

And the pos picking his nose and wiping away the residue.
Absolutely nauseating. And I bet they’re both stinky

Even better than the look of ‘Leave me alone” that Gobblin’ Mooch gave Boehner is the Nose Picker In Chief, hard at work at the end of the clip.

What does the fact that many of those wives put up that crap have to do with my point? (side note: I know of someone who traveled with a MLB team in the ’80s, who reported that only 2 of the married players didn’t cheat on their wives!)

People who tolerate philandering spouses don’t respect themselves much – instead of being admirable or “ridiculously smart”, they are icky whores of some sort.

I’d roll my eyes at Boehner, too.

What ever happened to the 59+ million Americans who voted not to re-elect an incumbent President? Do those people not count? I know they don’t count to Barack and Michelle, but do they also not count to Republicans?

Is no one representing their interests? Is no one going to stand up, ever, and say NO to this marching army of debt and destruction?

I come here because it used to be a place of rational disagreement. I’ve been here since 2007. But something has changed. The disagreement has been replaced by pointless hate.

SnarkVader on January 21, 2013 at 8:57 PM

Maybe its because many on the right finally realized there is no point in arguing with a liberal, and have started using the left’s own tactics.

All the while speed-shovelling that taxpayer-bought grub into her maw.

As much fun as it is to think that Michelle is rolling her eyes at Boehner, I’m pretty sure that’s not the case. Barry talking to Boehner behind her back, he says something, the two guys smile and Michelle seems to roll her eyes in agreement (she doesn;t even look at her husband as he speaks) — possibly all three are talking about how much Schumer loves the mic.

And all that food goes straight to her a**. Yeah I said it.

SHE EATS LIKE SHES IN PRISON, WHAT A NASTY NASTY PIG SHE IS…

Norwegian? Sorry, this whole thread is very amusing. Michelle does need to learn appropriate First Lady manners. But, if after four years, she still makes these kind of mistakes, I’m certain the Office of Protocol has given up on her.

I have to tell you the women looks about as happy to be there and doing this again for another 4 years, as she would be having her foot repeatedly slammed in a car door.

I really think they thought they were going to be sent packing and were all to happy to head to Hawaii and a 35m dollar luxury compound.

She has that been there, done it and seen it, got that t-shirt attitude. Mo would much rather be doing anything but what she is having to do now.

The problem is we have all been held hostage by this hit at it, “couldn’t find my ass with both hands and bloodhound attitude”. Now we are going to be subjected to it for another 4 years and it’s effects will last for decades to come.

bluesdoc70 on January 22, 2013 at 7:45 AM

I understand the putting lipstick on a pig thing. But was it really necessary to glue a beaver pelt to the pig’s head?

Happy Nomad on January 22, 2013 at 8:32 AM

So why is everyone assuming she rolled her eyes at what Borhner said? Maybe she rolled her eyes at what her husband said….I know I would. I get the feeling she has very little respect for him, can’t prove it just something about the way she is around him.

Deanna on January 22, 2013 at 8:33 AM

I didn’t watch…Did she pop in a wad of gum and start filing her nails?

bluesdoc70 on January 22, 2013 at 8:37 AM

The impression Mooch has made on average Americans is not a good one…and her Mess Hall manners and eye rolling do nothing to alleviate that impression.

Speaking of nasty pigs…

I am hoping someone here can tell me where I can find the bus to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan’s America.

There is still an empty chair in D.C.

Fleuries on January 22, 2013 at 8:49 AM

I’m okay with the eye roll (wouldn’t expect anything more) but why is the First Lady eating with her elbow on the table?

ARIZONAVETERAN on January 22, 2013 at 8:27 AM

Ha ha ha , too funny. Afraid someone’s gonna take it before she’s finished with it.

Cleombrotus on January 22, 2013 at 8:51 AM

The video.

Who was filming her eat? Isn’t that a no no?

She looks like she does not like sitting next to John Boehner and we don’t really know why she is rolling her eyes…it might be because she might not get enough to eat if she engages in meaningless chit chat. Completely different body language than when she is people she is comfortable with.

Does any website have the dialogue?

We could make up funny things all day with what they are saying.
The President is probably saying, This girl loves to eat, there ain’t nothing she won’t put in her mouth. And Boehner is patting her and defending her, and so, she rolls her eyes, because this is how she is treated at home, teased all day, and at meals. And Boehner says, “You just finish up honey.”

…totally innocent and apolitical.

Maybe she got advice from Jim Traficant.

That clip of Moochelle is priceless.

So is this.

bluesdoc70 on January 22, 2013 at 8:37 AM

Look under the table. She probably has her shoes taken off.

petefrt on January 22, 2013 at 9:22 AM

Obviously, it’s one of those ‘adult lifetime’ moments where she’s really proud of the country.

locomotivebreath1901 on January 22, 2013 at 9:24 AM

Yes, clearly that was a comment about Norwegians.

My God you’re stupid.
