This is an almost unbelievable picture of U.S. President Barack Obama banging his umbrella against an overhead bar on a gate as he and first lady Michelle Obama toured the Columbia Parc Apartment Development yesterday (Aug. 29) in New Orleans, Louisiana.


Obama and the First Lady were strolling through the gate when the umbrella he was carrying impacted the overhead bar with a resounding clang! The noise so startled Michelle that she instinctively ducked down. Obama tried to laugh it off as he always does when he makes a goof in public. But look at Michelle’s face. How embarrassing for her!


Yesterday marked the five year anniversary of when Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast and the storm took over 1,800 lives and devastated the region. Obama gave a small speech to the Hurricane Katrina survivors.

    If you get a chance, make sure you watch Spike Lee’s documentary, “If God Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise”. Although I missed the first two hours, the last hour was pretty good. It’s been playing on HBO all weekend long.

    :offtopic: sort of, The cabbie that got his throat cut by the 21 white guy because he is a Muslim, well my ex (who I thought I’d end up married to) who I was in a relationship with from 2000-2006 is defending him…The kicker is…………he is a Muslim! I don’t get it.

    I sent him a text asking him, really Muhammad? He told me don’t start.

  • LadyLew

    Thanks for the correction ma.

  • tintin1979

    clearly it couldn’t go through the bars so he was lifting it. i’m more impressed that he’s carrying his own umbrella and carrying it over his wife. Obama and Michelle are perfection. i love seeing these two. Sandra you really have a problem, the way your read pictures is out of this world.

  • Al-Ameera

    @ Mirs, I was just telling my Muslim Mom that…I told her you know we would be having some domestics all up and thru about this…

    @ KC and Rene, I know when we were together after he finished law school he worked as ADA but quit in 2007 and now is a law professor at one of the universities here. So I don’t get why he is even in court litigating because he teaches now. Imgaine my surprise when I turned on that dag on TV and seen him…My Son even called me at work about it. I am trying not to be so judgemental about it, you know, give him the benefit of the doubt but I can’t help but think said, This n*gga here…

    Someone said maybe they are forcing him, but my thinking is that it would be a conflict of interest…NO?

  • militaryspouse1

    Sandra let Obama be great

  • bk2atl

    That documentary on HBO was really long, but it was VERY informative. The Katrina disaster really did turn into a huge blame game. It was interesting to hear about it from all the various and different perspectives.

  • http://mobile.twitter.com/iamwonderchick2 LesBinLuv

    I see Michelle still got that hood instinct tho…hit the deck on sight!

  • pinksghetti

    The umberella represents Obama’s liberal agenda or maybe the umbrella is a conservative designed to make him look inept j/k

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKKxPtP6XjQ renegadesince1985

    @Al :shocked: I thought you meant defending him as in when y’all had a convo….I had no idea you meant in court!

  • SouthernPrincess

    This post was a waste of bandwidth

  • Al-Ameera

    @ Rene, No girl his defense attorney! I am thinking, do they know you a Muslim and NOI at that? One of the things (probably the only thing) I loved about him was his social consciousness. I just can’t understand it.

    I hate that I missed that. I did see a couple on CNN who were able to buy a “Katrina Trailer” for 5 bucks. They were told how to pass inspection, by opening all the windows and doors. They are now both physically ill and can’t work nor give the trailer back, but still have no place to live besides the Trailer. This couple was from Mississippi. I am not believing the other stats that 95% of those affected in Mississippi have rebuilt.

    For those who missed the point of this post: surely Obama saw that he couldn’t get that big umbrella through that gate without lowering it. But he waits until the umbrella clangs into the gate before he realizes the problem? That shows that his analytical problem solving skills are very poor. But we already knew that. :coffee:

    Yeah so i’ll remember this the next time I’m holding an umbrella since it obviously reflects how I do my job. I’m pretty sure that the ubrella BLCOKED HIS VISION so he didn’t see the bar since it was OVER HIS HEAD and the umbrella clearly prevents him from seeing anything over it. They were probably talking and not paying attention.

    You’re really reaching on this one Sandra…

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, so that makes it news! I can’t swim so that means I have no sympathy for fish….I’m lost….I wonder how Bush held his umbrella, ella, ella, eh!
