Michelle Obama Lends a Helping Hand on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 26th 2011 4:30AM
Michelle Obama, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'On the season premiere of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC), Ty Pennington and his design team took on the task of rebuilding the Steps-n-Stages Jubilee House for women veterans in need of assistance or a place to stay.

In doing so, they touched close to a cause that means a lot to First Lady Michelle Obama, and so she got involved.

In fact, she even made the trip to the build site on the day the family returned to help with some last-minute touches, check out the final product and meet the woman behind Jubilee House.

One thing Pennington was particularly proud of was his use of the vacuum tubes you usually see at drive-up bank centers. Only he put one end of it in a vegetable garden greenhouse and the other into the kitchen. Sure, it's frivolous and probably unnecessary, but even Mrs. Obama agreed it was fun.

I have never seen so many ignorant people in my life. May of you didn't eevn bother to read the article. In addition to her concern for your children's health, she been an advocate for our military families and our veterans. What's so amazing is that so many of you who speak about class obviously don't have any yourself, and I doubt you even know what it is. When was the last time we had an young active First Lady in the WH and not some elderly sedate wallflower who did nothing productive.And, also took vacations overseas, and Crawford at the drop of a hat. I don't remember reading aything about the Bush's weight and they sure as heck weren't models.

Yet, so may of you can do nothing but try to bring this President and First Lady down to your level. Instead of being on this computer all day, how many of you were out there looking for a job instead of blaming President Obama for your troubles. People seem to have a very short memory of the pathe we were on before he became President.

Eveybody wants to talk about shutting out Mexicans. Yet, how many of you are looking for a Mexican to do some work for you. Work that many Americans think they're to good to do or will take their time to come do. To top that off, Mexicans apparently just started coming to the US when Obama became President. Do you understand how stupid that makes you look. You haters out there need to use your commeen sense, if you have any, and think before you just throw something out. Think for yourself and not just from Faux News. Check out several news sources for your information. You might be surorised at what you learn.

Not only is she beautiful, she is smart. Smarter than most of you commenting on this AOL story about her. It is nothing other than envy and ignorance on your part. It is sad that this lady is taking time out of her schedule to assist a deserving project and rather than see that as "good", you twits offer that she is disingenious and ugly. She can buy and sell all of you morons and her children have been places and been exposed to things that your children will never have an opportunity to be exposed to. Looking at the grand sceme of things, you shuld be envious.... because most of you could never compete with her before she was the most powerful woman on Earth. Let alone now.

I wonder if her daughters educations are suffering due to all the hyper-breeding illegal aliens spewing out tens of millions of ignorant, mis-behavied anchor children that cant speak english obama allos to flood into America and steal our jobs. no wonder he will go down as one of the worst presidents ever.

I'm not a fan of President Obama, but Michelle was touching on makeover on her one to one talk with Barbara. There is some good in everyone.

You can take the "sista from thuh hood" out of the hood, but you cannot take the hood out of the "sista". She still looks like a sista from Chicago and has no class and no sense of fashon. She does like loud colors and shiney things though. Go figure

Better than the" texas trash" from before. All the Bush wives were known for were their trips to the Betty Ford Foundation.

To me it was just some more free campaigning for Obama at our expense. With all the vactions they have taken they could have built a lot more houses for more good people.
