Prez Praises Michelle Obama's Prowess At Push-Ups!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"President Obama conceded to some personal shortcomings in the physical fitness arena during a fundraiser in Los Angeles Wednesday evening.

Speaking to more than 600 supporters from the gay community, Obama said he was put to shame during a recent push-up session in Hawaii with a cadre of U.S. Marines and added that his wife, Michelle, was no slouch at push ups either.


The president got a laugh out of the audience when he added his other half had taken some ribbing about her technique `because she doesn`t go down all the way.`"


Michelle Obama has a penchant for wearing sleeveless dresses and shirts -- she likes to show of her muscular arms. I wouldn`t engage her in a push-ups contest or a boxing match.

President Obama should dispatch his spouse to Congress, only she can intimidate House Republicans to display a more bipartisan approach to politics.

The First Lady probably persuades her husband not to eat sugary snacks by threatening  to arm-wrestle him and posting the video of him losing on YouTube.

Obama criticized her push-up technique, complaining "she doesn`t go down all the way." I`m not going to touch that one with a ten-foot pole.
