John Boehner sat next to Michelle Obama at the several thousand calorie lunch after the inauguration. As Boehner chatted it up with the president, he made a couple of remarks to FLOTUS. Anybody want to take a crack at reading her body language in this short clip?

Judging from Michelle’s reaction, somebody wanted to focus on her food without interruption. I think Boehner asked her if she wanted to duck out back for a smoke with him.

Bonus Inauguration Day coverage: Bill Clinton, the 2013 Father of the Year, was in attendance:

More than likely Kelly Clarkson later got invited to some special room.

Update: As it turns out my semi-joke of a guess about what Boehner said to make Michelle roll her eyes wasn’t too far off base.

    I don't even want to think about reading that body.

    Moo: "Would sumbody like git rid o this guy already ?"

    Mooch: "For cryin` out loud, he hasn`t complimented my bangs YET !"

    You just know Bubba was "admiring" Kelly`s new slimmer shape !

    Really, it looks like for the most part, I think he was speaking to Obama, although there is a point Boehner appears to include Michelle.
    Regardless, her body language and expression clearly expresses her distaste. Classless and lacking manners. But then I doubt she feels she has to show basic courtesy.

    Don't worry, just keep your hands and feet away from [her] mouth.

  6. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 12:14 pm

    Barry said it wasn`t safe to get between her and a tamale .

  7. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 12:51 pm

    Contempt more like. Patented gangsta' gurl eye roll. Casting requirement to appear in any of the 'Friday' franchise installments.

    I'm filing the whole regrettable affair under "Non-guration" or In-non-guration. Out of the loop and under the weather along w/ Mrs. Will's 3-day weekend booked w/ grandkids but I've never seen such an effort to downplay an event by the LSM.

    What did attendance look like? I was too busy straightening out the sock drawer…

  8. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 1:12 pm

    Well that clip sure does lead more credence to what Paula Deen had to say about Mooch's appearance on her show:

    Deen even recently told the Washington Examiner, “[Michelle Obama] probably ate more than any other guest I ever had on the show! She kept eating even dur­ing commercials. Know what [the Obamas’] favorite foods are? Hot wings."

    If not for the Nanny agenda she's hellbent in forcing on the rest of us, I never took issue w/ any woman that has a hearty appetite. Paula's had a lot of guests over the years so her observation ( during commercials ) carries considerable weight.

    It's not the obvious Binge/Purge cycle that concerns me. Have any of you read her Princeton 'thesis'? It's like it was written by an 8th grader. Not only a lack of vocabulary that is stunning in its redundancy, but the waste of a seat that could have went to an Ivy school with actual potential? 4 years in and she's fluffing it up like an elementary school "book report".

    Keep rolling your eyes Mo, we've got those out numbered…

  10. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 1:43 pm

    The LSM isn`t calling any actual numbers as yet, but the latest pre-event predictions, based on hotel and restaurant reservations and the number of buses was lowered from 800,000 to 600,000-ish. What I heard moments ago on radio news was "just shy of a million ……".

    Watch for that number to increase over the next few days as the slobbering media photoshops in more attendees and discovers ways to incl. anyone who at any time and anywhere within DC just happened to look in that general direction. It`ll break a million by tomorrow.

  11. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 1:56 pm

    Right, like the nice old man in 32 C taking his dog for a walk and delivery drivers doing their routes…

    Speaking of 47%'ers. Yesterday daughter #1 wanted to go to a craft store so Mrs. Will stayed in the car w/ the grands. Anyway, when we got back she explained a meth couple pulled in next to her and the gal went in and came out moments later ( without a store bag ) and dumped their booty into the back seat. The BF gathered it up and marched RIGHT back into the store to 'return' it!

    Obviously these people don't 'vote' nor would they even marginally qualify as low information voters. But the people that 'raised' them and relatives that would otherwise be responsible for them vote Dimmocratic.

  12. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 1:56 pm

    Makes you wonder how much we paid for many of the attendees to be bused in for dear leaders address.

  13. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 2:08 pm

    Local paper websites frequently have stories of people busted for trying to return stolen merchandise to get cash. When you can find them on the police blotter, there`s little doubt they`re into meth and / or other drugs. Neck tats and face piercings are quite common among them.

  14. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 2:10 pm

    Lots of union representation, I`ll bet. Btw, so far there`s been no mention of the Westboro Baptist Church protesters being there.

  15. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 2:16 pm

    A big part of the reason I get so miffed w/ those that throw up their hands and say "We're stuck w/ this bozo for another four years..!"

    Maybe YOU are pal but..? Everything since 2010 has been about their being able to maneuver strategically to get within striking distance to earn a 'plausible rating'. Hence the frantic effort of "early voting".

    Get 'enough' people to the Convention to give the appearance of having support and 'enough' early votes cast ( to determine fraud striking distance ) and 'enough' a turnout at the In-non-guration to..?

  16. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 2:29 pm

    What will be interesting today is to see the election results out of Israel. I suspect that Obama gaining four more years (however he did it) will play a huge part it the Israeli elections. They are very political in Israel (it is common to see people have policitical debates all around town) and will understand that with Obama's second unfettered term and the team on Brennan, Hagel and Kerry at CIA, Defense and State will mean Israel will be on their own. The Isalmists understand this as well and will take advantage of what they will see as a weakend Israel.

    I predict Israel will take a hard right turn and we will see a build up of their military might.

  17. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 2:42 pm

    Interesting point that will only showcase how ineffective, weak and largely unsupported Team O really is. Then there's the practical and financial aspects for the Jews. Unlike American voters, Israelis can do math.

    Four consecutive years without a budget leaves in doubt which of our OWN Bases we'll be able to keep open, let alone borrowing/printing further to provide foreign aid?

    What will Dream Team do when they don't stand around waiting for some U.N 'resolution' and just start launching pre-emptive strikes on their own? And we HAVE to get involved!?

  18. JetHeadJoe on January 22nd, 2013 2:44 pm

    Boehner: "So Shelly, I hope you're wearing your Chinese buffet pants cuz this meal's a real gut buster!"

    M.O. (to herself): "Oh no. I thought I had you placed at the kids' table…"

    Bonus snark:

    Kelly Clarkson (to herself): "That perv Bubba is checking out my caboose. I see him in the teleprompter glass doing it. If he takes one step forward, I'm going to crack him in the crotch with a back kick. Thank God for those karate lessons!"

  19. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 2:46 pm

    I saw last night that Netanyahu had or was expected to win re-election.

    My nephew spends a lot of time in Israel. He said the majority there despise Obama ! I believe the same is true here; we just can`t get them to bother to vote !

  20. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 3:11 pm

    I'll stand by my projections that by whatever means available and circumstances both seen and yet unseen, He will not finish out his 2nd term.

    No executive ( even a family-held business ) can consistently make the wrong decisions in favor of playing to the crowd and keep their job. Even *without* oodles of scandals, which He is in no short supply. Over reach will be the death of Him.

    The Israelis won't have any problems recruiting and I mean top notch talent from across all 4 ( U.S ) branches. Sea changes are underfoot Obama can't begin to understand.

  21. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 3:32 pm

    I can see that and certainly hope and pray it works out that way ! Numerous investigations are in the works and bills ready for submission for impeachment / stopping his agenda. I`ve just been so disappointed at the weakness of the Rs in strong congressional positions to stand their ground.

    How many times over the last 2 years have we seen the Rs push the Ds into circling the drain only to watch them stand up and walk right out ?

  22. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 3:51 pm

    Speaking of that scenario. The question will be will Team Odrama try to stop any UN Resolutions against Israel or will they sit back and allow them.

    Remember, dear leader recently said Israel doesn't know what is in their best interest which makes me wonder just what he has planned via the UN.

  23. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 3:57 pm

    One of the first things the Closet Muslim-in-Chief promised the muslims right after usurping the pResidency was to support them if it came down to it. Expect him to work against Israel every chance he gets, without having to stick his own neck out too far. IOW, yes, the UN would be a good mechanism for him.

  24. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 4:24 pm

    And therin lies the rub. As long as Boehner and McConnell are running the show for the GOP in Congress I do not expect to see dear leader go anywhere. The press sure as hell isn't going to push anything, the courts are being stacked by dear leader and Congressional leadership has become much more concerned with maintaining their illusion of power to bother stopping the madness.

    This is why I was so hoping that Weepy would have been ousted, but it just goes to show that the majority of R's in the House are more worried about their committee positions if they had failed in ousting Boehner than in standing up for Conservatism.

    I have never been a fan of a third party, but I am onboard now. the GOP is far too gone to the darkside to come back. The sad thing is even if we manage to get a viable 3rd party up and running we wont see any results for at least 3-4 elelction cycles as it would take at least that long to get enough members elected to be considered a force to be reckoned with.

    A choice between mama bear and her cubs, and her and a tamale?

    I'll take the bear option.

    At least reasoning with the bear can have a positive outcome.

    Well now I see why the innaguration meal was packed full of calories:

    I read what I could stomach of it. From what I gathered it was a blame "whitey" for all the ills of Moochelle's life.

  28. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 4:30 pm

    At least bears aren`t plotting the takeover of an entire country.

  29. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 4:37 pm

    And he has proven it time and time again. Just looka t which conutries he has shown any real support for and who is now in control (i.e. Egypt, Libya and looks to soon be the same in Syria). The one thing they all have in common is the rise of Islamic states. But notice how the first country to attempt to rise up did not get any support from Obama. That would be Iran. The Iranian people are much more in step with Western civilization than their supposed leaders are. Remember, the Iranians are not Arabs they are Persians and that is a significant difference.

    So the Iranian people try to rise up against their Muslim overlords and Obama is AWOL on any support; yet when the more secular dictators Mubarak and Kadafi are challended he not only throws his support out there for toppling, he also supports the MB takeovers that have occured in the aftermath. Coincidence, I think not.

  30. Marshall_Will on January 22nd, 2013 4:38 pm

    Agreed, all those.., obstacles are very real. It's no coincidence they have every appearance of being stacked in His favor. What I'm talking about though really supersedes all of that.

    The (only) purpose, the only real reason P'BO 'wanted' a 2nd term was to evade prosecution from hist 1st. Handlers assured him he'd be untouchable from In-non-guration 1 and 2010 changed all that.

    In securing a 2nd term, he can now step down under his OWN terms. The Agenda is DOA and only CYA remains. It was a great run.

  31. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 4:43 pm

    Nope, no coincidences, but lots of trends and suspicious patterns.

  32. SignPainterGuy on January 22nd, 2013 4:50 pm

    Perhaps the "agenda" IS DOA, but the left will spare no expense and effort to revive and resuscitate it !

    Pfffft, just look at GoreBull Warming ! It`s been debunked 9 ways from Sunday and it`s still being pushed ! The potential for so much money to be made is just too compelling !

  33. Truesoldier__ on January 22nd, 2013 4:55 pm

    I am not so certain. My wife and I were discussing this over the weekend and she is hearing the same thing from many of the people she talks to as I have heard from alot of people as well. They are so fed up with everything they are tunning out and trying to live their lives the best they can.

    This is not coincidence this is by plan. Obama has ratcheted up the rhetoric and will continue to do so. Meanwhile, the GOP eleites will not counter it and be made the butt of jokes as often as possible. The goal for both Obama and the GOP elites…..get a majority of Americans so fed up that they stop paying attention so they can do what ever they want without reprecussions. All the need is a good chunk of the electorate to continue to sit out and have the moochers who are elegible to vote show up. By pushing forth amnesty (which is going to happen) they will have the majority of mooch votes they need to control the agenda for quite some time if not permanently.

  34. Dexter_Alarius on January 22nd, 2013 5:22 pm

    Boehner: "Hey, you'd better quit packing it in like that. You might put somebody's eye out with your buttons popping!"

    MO: " Mmfffbbmmmmggffft!"

    Daniel Pipes has a good article about Obama and what he has planned for Israel over at NRO:

    Here is just one thing that Israel is now having to worry about:

    You should see the one on Drudge now of the other Clinton.
