That pic of the First Lady holding the shirt cardboard to move Muslim kidnappers to tears is Photoshopped, right? That can't be real.
Has to be photoshopped. I'm sure she'd have been briefed that the kidnappers do not have respect for women so her plea means nothing to them.
Besides the White house would not engage in things this way
Its too bad some people do these things to make themselves
seem to be somehow impotant
They didn't release the images? I'm going to have to read this whole thread again now...figure out just what they hey is going on.
The First Lady is not a government offical. She has no powers, no authority to do anything that can be considered government action.
The President can do certain things by executive order, take certain unilateral actions under the Constitution, and can take action pursuant to the laws passed by the Congress. He can also do things on his own that are not Presidential functions.
For example, early in his administration, Obama and Biden hit a Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Alexandria, Virginia. This was not a government function, and it reflected no endorsement, limitation, regulation, or contract with Five Guys by the U.S. government. When the Obamas vacation in Hawaii, it does constitute action by the U.S. government in favour of, against, or neutral toward Hawaii.
When Mrs. Obama says Americans should eat better, that is not government policy or government action. And when she participates in an internet "movement," it likewish is not government policy or government action.
She doesn't have a staff. The White House has a staff.
Sorry, Walter. You can go anyplace you want with this, rant and rave about this or that First Lady, positive or negative. Nothing will change the fact that the First Lady is not a government official, holds no government authority, and nothing she says or does can be considered an action of the government.
Fine. Everything you've said is true. Still don't make Mrs. Obama a government official, give her any government authority, or make anything she says or does government policy or government action.
