Wow: Michelle Obama Shops At Target, Just Like Normal People
— Ace

NBC's Today show just can't believe how wonderful that is.

Look, it's true -- she's perfectly normal, just plain folks like me!

And look, wow! Just like me, she uses those big plastic red carts at Target! Why, she must share my values!

And exactly like me, apparently AP gets notified in advance of her Target shopping trips so they can document it!

Wait, what? Professional AP photographers aren't on hand to take pictures of me at my Target runs.

Wait a minute...

AP photographer Charles Dharapak told CBS News he took pictures of the first lady at the Target on Route 1 in Alexandria, Virginia.

The first lady's office confirmed that the pictures showed Mrs. Obama, though it did not immediately respond when asked if it tipped off Dharapak.

1 Did they clear out the commoners before her arrival?  And I see she ditched the $42,000 diamond bracelets.

You don't shop with a Secret Service detail in tow either.

Neither do I. Hence my need to CCW. She and her hubby (and all their friends) hate the idea of me carrying.

5 Shouldn't a committed greentard be bringing her own reusable bags, instead of using landfill-clogging plastic Gaia-rapers? For shame!

6 She went shopping at Target. And so did her Secret Service detail, her personal aide, her press aide, her makeup artist, her cup bearer, her spittle wiper...

11 Man, I told her to go Target and she was pissed. Said, "Look, Barry, I'm the second most important fucking person in this country and I have to shop for fuckin' milk at Target? You can kiss my huge brown ass!" And then she stormed out. Should've heard the thumping as that bitch left. *LOL*

After she left, and I wiped the tears from my face from her vicious attacks, I said, "That's right, woman. You betta listen to me!" And my balls unpuckered from my ass for just a second.

This Target bit reminds me of something Limbaugh said in his show yesterday (or perhaps the day before). This administration is obsessed with "optics".

Looked at through that prisim Fast & Furious sort of makes sense if it was being used to define the optics for a certain agenda.

But, nah, they're not that sick. Right, Ace?

35 Yes, $10,000 on Secret Service detail security so she can save $3.00 on Chinese-made printed tees for Sasha and Malia. Hey, I bought Tarjay printed tees for my girl growing up too. They just didn't come with uzi-toting body guards.

36 So, why are the bags not in the cart?
I am talking about the bags she is holding, not her.
because I always put the stuff back into the cart to take it out to the car, why carry it?
Of course it is set up, just like the beach was in Normandy, when clition was walking around moving rocks around for the videos and pictures.

The secret service checked out that Target well in advance.  The store managers, employees, etc. where all checked.  It's how the SS rolls.  Nothing about this was spontaneous. 

 I love the sour look on MOs face - like she just stepped in dog shit what with having to mingle with the inbreds.

I also love how the MSM loves to put down the rest of us lepers that shop at Walmart/KMart/Target except when their Queen does it.  She is just so precious isn't she?

She should have bought a new shirt while she was there. Target has some cute tops that are trendy and stylish while being affordable.The one she has on is hideous and probably cost $500. 
Bitch, you are not fooling anyone, with this "I'm just like you" stuff.  That ship sailed when we found out you spent 10 FUCKING million dollars on vay-cays this year.

54 I don't know if this is a national sentiment or just a local one, but around here, Target is Wal-Mart for liberals. For whatever reason (I've heard reference to policies and donations favoring LGBTTDSetc causes), the anti-Wal-Mart lefties around here consider Target an acceptable alternative (I know a decent population of hippiite lefties).

I take Ulsterman's White House Insider with a huge grain of salt -- it might be fiction or it might not.   But two days ago he had a "story" up about a huge blowup at the White House with MO screaming at a subordinate.   Could it be that sending the first lady out to Target to get photographed to humanize her is triage in response to what they expect to be a leak of the blowup story?

Heh. I've shopped at that Target before. That part of US-1 (actually, pretty much from the Alexandria border to Fort Belvoir) has always been lower-class & trailer parkish with a fair amount of low-income blacks, whites (leftover Virginia Rednecks who have been chased out of the rest of Fairfax County), and Hispanics. The nearby yuppie - Starbucks crowd has slowly been gentrifying the area, but it's still blue-collar enough to have made Michelle roll her eyes more than once behind those satellite-dish sunglasses.

It's a call to arms that the Obama campaign needs more than ever this election, when the combination of a weak economy and dampened enthusiasm for the president are creating a tougher climate for raising money.

Ah, the building of a story line. Nobody noticed her (and her entourage) so that's why there are no picutres of her shopping and know one knows what she bought.

Then, the story continued, the cashier recognized her and someone snapped a pic with her alone, carrying her own bags. The pic was amazingly in focus and centered, even though she was walking, so it was sold to AP.

I'd have soon not seen these pictures. Mrs O deserves a level of privacy. We all know she goes outside of the White House to have lunch and see sights in and around DC with herself, staff, and her children. She is oft quoted as saying she loves Target, but laments not being able to go there due to this very thing. Next we will have stories about what she bought. She is dressed down and in a hat and sunglasses, that alone signals she is not wanting to engage or be engaged. At that time she is a private citizen going about her business. She has let us see a small part of her life, but we don't know everything and we don't need to know.

"With times so tough, it gives us a little extra spending money for those little extras that make life living!" said just-so-darn-lovable Michelle Obama, casually unwrapping a custom-made chocolate cream wrapped in real 24-karat gold leaf embossed with the presidential seal. "And that nice Mr. Dimon at Chase Bank made it all so easy! He's my new personal banker! We skipped all that pesky paperwork and title search and got right to the cash payment!

211 Oops.  One more comment from the stupid Fashion site:

I don't know, maybe my admiration for her has clouded my judgement, but I can't believe that Mrs. O would knowingly take part in a photo op. I just think that is not her style, especially when I have seen her say that she misses being able to go to Target and shop. Also, doesn't the people who own Target or have head positions donate to republicans, so if it was a photo op, why choose that store? I think,maybe she stopped at Target to buy some travel size items because she is campaigning in Oregon today and other things for her family.

While I love seeing this pic, I do hate that she got caught.

Could it be that sending the first lady out to Target to get photographed to humanize her is triage in response to what they expect to be a leak of the blowup story?

281 191 And one last comment from her admirers at Michelle's Fashion Jane, thanks for these updates. One of my fave fashion blogs has yet to weigh in on her outfit (and considering it's not upscale enough they might not.) But they DO love to post pics of her when she has her designer threads on; they call her Shelley O, as if she is the pumpernickel version of whitebread fashion plate Jackie O reincarnated. And every time they do a little part of me dies inside, because Michelle is no Jackie, and it is ridic that no lib seems to be able to acknowledge this. Personally, I would be mortified if I had so-so fashion sense and ppl fawned over my style choices like I was a walking goddess. The clothes always wear her, she never seems to wear them, to steal a phrase from the fashionistas. But then again, I am a mere peon, I am not Michelle, and I do not encompass the world in my gorgeous and muscular arms, to paraphrase some ridic magazine from back in the day.

283 Sure, there may have been some PR aspect to this -- once she was caught shopping at Target, the White House decided it would make good press to authorize the AP photog to release the pictures. After all, being on the Maxim's 100 list she could sell any picture of herself for $100,000 (and donate the proceeds to charity, of course). I'm glad we have a First Lady who isn't too proud to admit that her tastes are simple.

Well I worked in the Bush (41) and the Clinton administration's as a member of the White House Military Office.

 

I'll tell you - that when Clinton visited a High School in a Chicago Suburb - it was in the middle of the winter and the truck coming from the airport with the magnetometers (metal detectors) hit a rough patch of snow and careened into the ditch.

 

That's when the Secret Service Agents got very anxious, because the backup plan was to "frisk" everyone entering that auditorium.  Fortunately - someone hauled the truck out of the ditch and got the metal detectors there in time to get the crowd seated before Clinton arrived.  And this was all facilitated by the fact that Clinton was ALWAYS late to every event he attended (except for his "meetings" with Monica - which I think he was very prompt in showing up for).

 

So how would Michelle get into a TARGET without every customer in there going through a metal detector?  Well, if the visit was kept absolutely secret - then the risk is fairly low because no one has time to plan to do her harm in advance.

 

However - you can bet that the Secret Service detail would have been all over that place - and extremely obvious.

 

Why didn't AP take a picture of the protective detail also and / or - the necessary protective detail / first lady motorcade - which would have been right outside?

 

Oh - I know why.

299 285 ...once she was caught shopping at Target... Aww, your na•vetŽ, it is presh. (Either that or I am way too cynical.) If we honestly had pictures of her shopping at regular stores every week, or if she was doing this while on vacation and away from her White House staff, I'd have less of a problem with it. But she is a mere jump away from the White House, and they have been living there three years. She had a staff that does this kind of thing for her every week; why a photo op now? Answer: because she bought ridiculously overpriced jewelry recently, which is the norm for her, she has expensive tastes, and she has to try to shake that Marie Antoinette image by going out amongst the peoples. It is PR 101. I'd love a first lady that was honestly a Target or WalMart kind of gal, but Michelle is not that lady, and wasn't even when she was still living in Chicago.

 Sure, there may have been some PR aspect to this -- once she was caught shopping at Target, the White House decided it would make good press to authorize the AP photog to release the pictures. After all, being on the Maxim's 100 list she could sell any picture of herself for $100,000 (and donate the proceeds to charity, of course). I'm glad we have a First Lady who isn't too proud to admit that her tastes are simple.

 

The entire thing was staged!  Everything about this administration is optics (think styrofoam columns, speech before the Brandenberg gate, Obama picking up a tarball on the beach after the oil rig disaster, etc.).  Every photograph and video is a carefully crafted, well choreographed propaganda extravaganza that would have made Leni Riefenstahl blush.

I have to believe you are a sock and not a troll since you bring up the Maxim thing.

Moronettes,

Mrs. O 's website is barf inducing and unbelievable, but Michelles Mirror and Newsbirdsview websites are fun.  People there are honest about the clothing Michelle wears.  The above link is to Michelles Mirror, and that site has a link to Newsbirds View.

303 FOR all you HATERS, take a CHILL PILL, you are mad at your own lifestyle all b/c your purchases MUST come from Dollar Tree. She deserve to shop in public IF that is her choice, now remember your choice is coming soon the 1st time someone has a 75% OFF sale. I can't wait to PULL the lever again so that she can continue SHOPPING..­...

306 191 And one last comment from her admirers at Michelle's Fashion:

I'd have soon not seen these pictures. Mrs O deserves a level of privacy. We all know she goes outside of the White House to have lunch and see sights in and around DC with herself, staff, and her children. She is oft quoted as saying she loves Target, but laments not being able to go there due to this very thing. Next we will have stories about what she bought. She is dressed down and in a hat and sunglasses, that alone signals she is not wanting to engage or be engaged. At that time she is a private citizen going about her business. She has let us see a small part of her life, but we don't know everything and we don't need to know.

We are so beneath her....so undeserving of a glimpse into her amazing life....

Let me get this straight:

You believe she regularly shops at target?

Why is this the first time we've heard of this? You really believe no one has recognized her, or been the least bit curious about the identical black SUVs with guys in black suits standing around them, and her.

Someone said you were naive. I think you're a dumbass.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the reason that we need to institute drafts and have major wars every couple of generations.

Yes, drat the luck!  An AP photographer just happened to be waiting inside an Alexandria Target store, with his camera ready, on the off chance that the First Lady would stop by for a bit of discount shopping.

Are people really that stupid?  Oh, wait, millions of them voted to make this idiot woman's idiot husband president, despite his obvious lack of qualifications.  So . . . never mind.

While WE at this site might not care, not really, the MSM does, and they are sadly still what most ppl think is Real News. This is the kind of craptastic puff-piece WH photo ops they will be spreading around until Nov 2012; might as well get our snark on and enjoy the crazy train as it begins to leave the station.

344 BFD - so she went to Target. We probably paid the damn bill for this too. She's most likely buying togs for all her family members for their next $500,000+ "vacation". I mean, they work so hard, don't they deserve it? She's already spent way more money on these trips than Barry's salary for his whole (hopefully only) term. What a frickin' joke these people are. We can't possibly get rid of them fast enough.
