Well that’s what Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) thinks.
Hosted by Huffington Post
MediaBistro reports that Sensenbrenner was overheard talking on the phone, retelling an incident in which he said about Michelle Obama:
“She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”
The most bothersome issue here is the conflation of two entirely separate matters: the First Lady’s (natural) physique and her campaign for healthy eating and physical fitness.
Michelle has traveled the country for her “Let’s Move!” campaign for over a year, talking about healthy eating, promoting a more user-friendly pyramid graphic, getting stores like Walmart to stock their shelves with nutritious items and playing sports with kids.
here is more from Rush Limbaugh:
Yet some conservative critics don’t see it that way. Before Representative Sensenbrenner spoke out, Rush Limbaugh was on the case, disparaging Michelle Obama’s body as a way to critique her healthy eating campaign. The radio host said in February:
“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.”

Is he serious? or is he high?
HERE’S A NEWSFLASH YOU IMBECILE: NEITHER DO THEY! THEY ARE LL PHOTO SHOPPED WITHIN AN INCH OF BEING A PAINTING! PERHAPS SHE SHOULD BE ON THAT HEALTHY WATER DIET USED BY ONE OF THOSE VICTORIA SECRET MODELS! THAT WOULD BE HEALTHY HUH?
So Wait! First of all why are you checking out her ass? and second of all what the HELL are you talking about. Michelle Obama is neither fat, nor out of shape. What she has are hips! She has a classic pear shape she’s small on top and wider in the hips. No matter how much weight she loses, she will always be wide across the hips because THOSE ARE HER BONES! I think it’s very interesting because Michelle does not have that “ideal” Body type that the media and fashion have promoted but what I love about her is that she is a shape and size that most American women (and others) can relate to, black white, red or yellow. She is not “camera ready” Hollywood thin (like a size 0) but she is fit and you can see by the way she carries herself that she is in her body she is active and exercises, and not just because her arms of buff!
The level of blatant disrespect is mind blowing, but as I say, it’s sad that things like this no longer take me aback. In these days and times with the way the world is…people will do and say anything in public—trust me, they were saying it on private but now they feel so comfortable that they will say it in the light of day and almost with impunity. These comments are incendiary on so many levels, first of all why are you talking about her ass? When people want to wound (or hope to) they know that most women’s Achilles heel is her appearance, especially their weight. The second thing wrong with this is the fact and I have to say it– You just can’t say stuff like that about a black woman’s behind… seriously now, you know that puts the race card automatically in play. And what is so silly is for a Black woman, Michelle’s booty is not big (as in round, shelf, or as Miss. Phaedra Parks of RHOA would say “Donkey Booty”)
I have to break out ma black woman for a second and say a word to crazy white male (and female for that matter) politicians who want to come out of their face with crazy talk about a the first Black Booty…
You better check yo’self before you git wrecked! Don’t know her husband has access to all sorts of cans of whip ass– Secret service, CIA, Nuclear WEAPONS!!! You gonna come out the side of you face wit some nonsense and git yo’self popped!
Sorry that’s the best written black speech I can offer…
