Perhaps if Michelle Obama had adhered to the agreement that she made with the debate commission/moderator to remain silent during the second debate, instead of clapping in the middle of a back and forth as she did (which set a very POOR example to others in the live studio audience that night), or at least apologized to Mitt Romney and the American people for having LIED and broken that agreement, then maybe she would have earned some respect. As it is, our most recent memory of Michelle Obama is that of a LIAR, a POOR example, and someone who is so conceded that she can't even apologize for having LIED. Thus, Hoffa understands why Brian Dey may rightfully be upset with Michelle Obama - she shows us no respect, thus she doesn't get any in return. Remember, we're the peons, she's a national leader - she should be leading by example if she had character, integrity, and class. Respect is, after all, a two way street!

@Hoffa - if that's what you need to point to in order to excuse the lack of respect shown the First Lady of OUR country, then go ahead, but please know I would feel the same way about Mrs. Bush (either one) or Mrs. Romney if she were First Lady, and I would expect everyone to respect the position (you're right - it's not an office).

@Blair - I have no idea what you're talking about since I don't watch The View but it seems irrelevant to this discussion.

@Heather A - Shouldn't Michelle Obama show respect to Mitt Romney and the nation and apologize for having violated the debate rules at the last debate?
