I'm telling you. I can't believe the amount of Obama books out and he is on EVERY magazine cover! It's like now that he's the President, white folks are pimping the SHIT out of his image. Those sneaky rascals and their fucking modern day media slavery. LOL

I'm tired of Michelle. She is not very photogenic. She belongs right along side all of the other homely first ladies. meooooow.

I know, I know. The way I pick on Michelle is mean-spirited. I apologize.
if she just wasn't so - peculiar looking with that concave face.

I really don't envy Michelle because of the scrutiny petty people like me put her under. And if I were a man, I wouldn't trade places with Obama for anything in the world. He has such an insurmountable task before him, and he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.
