He is the average Ron Paul supporter.

An hour and twenty minutes of hugs. That's pretty cool.

And letting the kids play with Bo. I bet he enjoyed that.

So, what you're saying is, a true First Lady would have biatch-slapped him? Should have biatch-slapped him? Any first Lady who sees someone supporting someone other than her husband should snub that person?

What's your point, smitty?

Even if Obama is a bit of a right winger he and his family are adorable.

I'm the submitter and that's not what I was saying at all. In case you didn't notice, I used the "amusing" tag because I thought it was an amusing situation. I also thought the First Lady handled an awkward situation very well.

Ah - if I'd know it was you, I wouldn't have assumed the snark I did.

And yeah - I bet Bo was a happy dog. He seems to be getting better behaved now that he's no longer such a puppy.

I guess I should have mentioned that the teenager with the Ron Paul shirt shows up about 4 minutes into the video.

I'm pretty sure this automatically means Sarah Palin is POTUS and the Obama's have to move to Myanmar. It's in the Magna Carta... right there next to the vegetable lasagna recipe

Why would you tour the White House wearing a shirt like that? It's like showing up at a Mets-Phillies game wearing a Yankees jersey.

IMHO, I think he did it to see if he could get a reaction from the First Lady. If that was his intent, he failed spectacularly.

Seeing as he's a teen, he might have done it on a dare too.

"Awkward"? Seems like "Handled with class" is more like it.

Perhaps she is aware that Ron Paul has zero chance of becoming the GOP nominee.

Isn't hat the way things are supposed to work?
 
2012-02-18 09:02:26 PM
Why is that awkward? Given Mr. Paul's political relevancy, it's kind of like showing up to Fenway Park in an Astros jersey. Yeah, you might get some strange looks, but who is going to actually get pissed?
 
2012-02-18 09:02:46 PM
Why is that awkward? I highly doubt that Michelle Obama is only approving of one point of political view. Unlike her GOP critics who would pigeon-hole her as such a person, most people can understand and are ok with other people having beliefs and opinions.
 
2012-02-18 09:03:22 PM
He should have told to keep her hands off our giant chocolate bars.
 
2012-02-18 09:03:29 PM
Republicans obviously expected her to smother him with her big fat butt, so that he might die as a martyr to the cause.

Apparently some people think Mrs. Obama is a hateful, bitter woman.

I've got my issues with her husband, but I said it at the start and I'll say it now...

That woman is PURE CLASS.

As a woman who is 6'1", I share Michelle's pain in finding dresses and trousers that fit properly.

Kudos to her for being gracious to the Paulaneer.

/RON PAUL!!!

That's really too subtle for a shot. If I have to look at the file name to figure out what you were going for, it doesn't work.

I'm not sure he could have been trying for a reaction from the FL if she surprised the tour. But a general dare I'd believe.

2012-02-18 09:07:06 PM
That's not awkward at all. The president is the elected representative and leader of America, and even Ron Paul supporters are constituents of the President, and the first lady has similar expectations. It would have been awkward if she treated the t-shirt guy any different from anybody else.
 
2012-02-18 09:08:05 PM
Let me consult my Ron Paul supporter checklist.

* Overweight
* White
* Not self-aware

Let's see... check, check, check. Yup, that's a certified Ron Paul supporter!

People who respect our nation's democratic traditions don't find it awkward to show respect for people with differing views.

Except he didn't know he was meeting the First Lady. More likely he just wears the shirt around. I doubt it was risky at all. Cracking down on someone for wearing a political shirt on a White House tour has "bad press" written all over it.

I get inundated with Tea Party propaganda from my step-brother, and they do indeed think Michelle Obama is a hateful, bitter, anti-American woman. It's pretty sad, really.

Yes, as far as I know White House tours don't require you to sign a "loyalty pledge".

Well, yes. From the picture, it looks like a perfectly polite exchange. Leave it to the media to turn it into someone scandalous.

Leave it to the farkers to take the bait.

If Gingrich actually gets to the White House, he'll have divorced and remarried twice by then.

You're right multiparty government like UK don't have political fights. And if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

Well, you know... the Mrs. Gingrich du jour. I'm sure it's in the contract, somewhere.

She really is a class act. Nice to see a First Lady act like one.
 
2012-02-18 09:14:53 PM
Note: it's okay to visit the White House wearing a shirt supporting a political opponent of the president.
