Michelle Obama Denied Speaking Engagement at Va. School

Who would deny the first lady a shot to talk to their students?

From The Grio

First lady Michelle Obama’s request to speak at a Chesterfield County elementary school, while on the campaign trail in Virginia, was rejected by the school officials, citing that it went against school policy.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the Chesterfield school officials refused to discuss the request made by the Obama campaign.

However, James Holland, a Dale District Supervisor, and the only Democrat on the five-member Chesterfield board said, “I do believe and think that Mrs. Obama, the first lady, should be allowed to attend a Chesterfield school.” He continued, “I know it’s not school policy. However, I just do not agree with that, because I think it’s an honor for the first lady to visit a school.”

    Michelle Obama has been nothing but classy and elegant as our First Lady.

    As a conservative, I am not so sure that Romney is the lesser of two evils, at least when it comes to the future of the Republican party. If we persist in ignoring our base composed of conservatives, christians and catholics we will continue to lose. Lincoln said you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. Sacrificing conservative principles in an attempt to appeal to moderates simply is not electorally pragmatic for a Republican victory. If true conservatives want to send a message to the GOP leadership they should vote for Obama. If they cannot stomach voting for someone to the left of center, then they should consider voting for Independent candidate Gary Johnson. Nothing will change unless we send a message.

      Lil’ Annie couldn’t hold a candle next to First Lady, Michelle Obama!

  • Chesterfield

    Perfect decision by chesterfield county. Our schools or our youth should not be used as tool for securing election votes. If the First Lady wants to visit a school in Chesterfield County wait until after the election.

      you dummy the kids are not to vote at this age.How do secure the votes by going to elementary schools. Obama already leading in polls in Virginia.

  • Zardos

    An more important honor would be to watch her hit the bricks come January !!

    • chitownpete

      She already has. According to her extensive vacation/travel history she has hit bricks all over the world on the taxpayers dime. Oh I know, she’s no different than other first ladies. Turns out “change” was just a slogan to secure the needed “white guilt” vote.

      • vtigerlilies

        yeah it’d sure be nice to travel the world & have somebody else pay i bet she says she paid for it w/ her own $, even if she did, who paid for her security guards,& her air fare?

      come january? why’s that?

  • DockyWocky

    Mooshelle was mortified and there will be repercussions against that school district. Just wait. When the first boob wants to politicize children, they should be politicized and smile about it.

      Stop with whatever you’re putting in your kkkool-aid! I cracked myself up with this one!!! lol!!!

  • iluvtigerlilies

    so let her visit the school, she couldvisit AFTER the school day has ended,& kids go home so she’s not interupting, or distracting the students from learning. just because she’s the 1st lady doesn’t mean the school should reschedule their school day just toaccomidate her visiting(if hat’s why they didnt want her to visit?)

    OH THIS IS THE MOST STUPID THING TO ARGUE ABOUT. EVERYBODY KNOWS THE FIRST LADY GOES ON A SPECIAL PLANE, AND AS FAR AS SHE WANTING TO SPEAK IN A SCHOOL TO THE CHILDREN, SO WHAT. YOU PEOPLE JUST WANT SOMETHING TO FIND FAULT WITH HER BECAUSE SHE IS BLACK. WELL, LET ME TELL YOU, I HAVE NEVER MET HER, BUT SHE HAS DONE MORE FOR OUR CHILDREN SINCE MRS. KENNEDY. SOME OF THESE PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE LESSONS FROM HER.THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HER TALKING TO A CLASS. LISTEN UP ND SHUT UP, MAYBE Y
    OU WILL LEARN SOMETHING.

    I’m glad they took a stand on this move of not having Michelle Obama speak to the children, what the hell do they have to do with this election? Are they trying to sign them up to vote (lol), Keep our children clear minded and away from their nonsense.

      To keep your children with clear mind is when you stop talking racism at home. Not the schools.
