I bet the crowd was thrilled to listen to Michelle spread her pet project propaganda.. West Point should be ashamed to have invited the woman and her agenda to speak on such a happy occasion for the graduating cadets. They could have done worse and invited no brains Biden

It's easy to talk about when it's not your own kids going to war.

Might as well. She knows as much about being in the military as her empty-suit husband. Anything he would have said would have been just as uninformed.

It always amazes me how easy it is to condemn when your not the one doing the job.

It is terrific to see a brilliant woman who is living the American dream saluting these fine you men and women.

The racists and haters would never have talked about Laura Bush with such hate and contempt....nor would the most liberal of liberals.

IMHO, we don't "Keep in mind" families back home when the Mooslims are shooting at you or trying to blow your arse up. The only thing GIs need to worry about is KILLING Mooslims.

IF Michelle were ever in the military she would know that, truely clueless.

Oh wait, the Obama's are Mooslims, Houston we have a problem.

Our First Lady created problems for herself by attaching herself to the national anti-obesity effort. So, she lectures us endlessly about our shortcomings.

However, she has failed to demonstrate that she is winning the battle with her own weight problems.

Consequently, she comes across as a hypocrite and deserves whatever scorn comes her way.

Glad I read the article before spouting off. The AP headline makes it sound like the First Lady addressed the Corp of Cadets at graduation, which IMO would have been inappropriate.

Instead, she spoke at the pre-graduation dinner. There's a first time for everything. I was commissioned via a military academy, but I see nothing wrong or inapproporate with her speaking at a dinner.

Oops, I meant to say that "I was not commissioned via a military academy".
