First Lady Michelle Obama talks to Matt Lauer on The Today Show today. She says the West Wing has focused a lot of attention on Egypt’s foreign policy right now. From Egypt’s pictures we can learn that democracy is something not to take for granted.

She says it’s hard being President of the United States. And that Mr Obama has not had a cigarette for a year to her knowledge. She also says giving up an addiction (like smoking) once a person decides, to leave them alone. They must find their own path.

Political campaigns are brutal. She’s up for it. Campaigning is not on her radar, she’s busy. But she enjoys being on the road and talking to the American people where “she will do whatever she’s asked to do.”

If Barack wins the election, six more years in the White House for the Obama family will see Sasha will be 15 and Malia will be 18 at the end of a second term. Her kids are normal. Raising teenagers “would be killing her” talking about it. She says the tradition of White House kids being good is great. The Bush girls “are magnificent.” Chelsea Clinton is “a solid young women” and Caroline Kennedy is amazing – so she thinks the Obama girls surviving the pressures of the White House follows a good legacy. She asks the country to keep her girls “in their prayers.”

To her “haters” she says you don’t do politics to be liked, because you have to make tough decisions. People have strong feelings for every President whose ever held the office. It’s not a surprise. She feels her husband is the same guy that has held the office. “Emotional Consistency” is Barack’s forte. He’s emotional about his family, but on his job he’s remained steady through it all.

To her Republican critics who are concerned with “Economy and Jobs creation” she still expects these critics to support her husband in 2012. She talks of significant improvements in the economy, a slow growth. She maintains “change doesn’t happen overnight, it happens gradually. She feels her husband has kept “every promise he’s made.”

She refers job seekers to investments in the future through educational community colleges, because the economic structure of the nation has changed so much retraining is the way forward. Find sectors that are growing and recharge skills towards these new sectors. She says, “all careers are fluid” and the days of working in a company for 20 years are gone. Young people are extremely aware that 2 years in a company is where it at and to use the company to upskill oneself and move on.

She’s proud of her “Let’s move” fitness and nutrition education for kids campaign. Good for her! On her Super Bowl Party menu was buffalo wings, deep dish pizza and potato chips. These with exercise and fruit and veges every day are all fine by her. It’s about balance. She sees Nutrition revolutionizing school lunches and child awareness to what healthy food is via the education system.

She doesn’t believe her kids “need” Facebook. So they’re just not allowed it. Good for her! That’s different. Like many of US, Mrs. Obama admits she is obsessed with french fries.

Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.

BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.

Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.

Kanye West gives an interview about George W. Bush to talk show host Matt Lauer while President Obama is offshore, on The Today Show.

George mentioned Kanye in his new book. It’s kinda a unifying book narrative link into the current presidency, so a smart move from a past Texan president in re-entering the global political arena via a memoirs book, I reckon. But I’m not American, so let’s let the American people speak on that themselves. I must say, George’s plastic surgery touch ups look all good though. Amazing what time on your hands can engender. Love it!

My whole thing with George’s opener with Matt Lauer in this interview is simply this: how can Kanye a black man, be the racist? Okay, whatevz! Too funny how America switches it up, when needs be. Makes me laugh.

Alright the hori in me, makes me say: Is this the same George W. that helped accelerate a George W. financial melt down, that Presient Obama’s face is now wearing? Same thing, different face… Yes, I do believe it is. So for George to call a singer/ songwriter Kanye a “racist” is kinda dumb with a political? segue back in to US cultural life. Kanye’s a pop star George. That’s all he’s ever claimed to be. Nice work though.

Any thoughts on this? Leave a comment if you care for American entertainment and are a Kanye fan.
