Conservative pundits have been smearing Michelle Obama with aplomb this past week. First there was Andrew Breitbart's Big Government blog, which called the first lady fat in a political cartoon. Then Michele Bachmann picked a fight over breast-feeding, of all things. Now? Back to the "fat" thing, apparently.

Rush should be the last person to comment on this.

Michelle is in excellent shape, Rush is well not... Fat people shouldn't tell non-fat people they are fat. It just doesn't work that way Rush

Hell Limbaugh wishes he was even remotely close to the shape Michelle Obama is in.

Yes, Rush is overweight and so is Michelle. And as far as a poster stating that "Michelle is in great shape" I don't know if I agree with this. And Rush probably has 15 years on Michelle.

Rush was commenting on Michelle's poor choice and lack of judgement in her meal selection.

Limbaugh's ratings must have taken a dip. This dumb comment appeals to his followers, though. And he'll say whatever it takes to get his name back into the news.

He was just as heavy 15 years ago. His statement was insensitive and unnecessary.

You people really need to lighten up. So what if he said she is overweight! To label that as some "personal attack" is just silly. Look, if someone REALLY wanted to come out and insult Michelle, it wouldnt be hard to do and itd be obvious that its an insult. But we arent the mean. SO again, so what if he said that. Get over it

Why not the focus be on the hypocrisy of the first lady instead?! Is that something youd rather not talk about? Of course. Michelle O has been a complete hypocrite when it comes to this whole "healthy food" initiative. That is what Rush spent the most time talking about. But of course, the media and lefties would rather make something out of nothing.
