(Newser) – Michelle Obama is getting a little attention after today's inaugural luncheon. Sitting between President Obama and John Boehner, the first lady seemed to roll her eyes at the House speaker—not once but twice, reports the Huffington Post (here's the video). And President Obama may have touched on the friction during his short remarks: "Michelle and the speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much," he said. "And so I'm just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you."

But the president kept joking aside when he ended with a toast, Mediaite reports: "There is controversy about the quality of our president," he said, "no controversy about the quality of our first lady." He also remarked that "democracy is not always easy," and "the longer you are there, the more humble you become." The menu, however, seemed less humble: Washington's finest started with lobster tails, moved on to hickory-grilled bison, and ended with desserts including artisan cheeses. CBS has the full menu.

Bam in your face! ~ ~ I would have rolled my big pretty eyeballs too! Boehner's comment was goofy on its face. We all know that most cigarette Smokers enjoy smoking a "nice" cigarette after any meal. So why would Boehner even ask BHO had he smoked a disgusting cigarette BEFORE the meal that we all paid for ???!!! Because Boehner dislikes FL Michelle with a passion and wanted to get on her last nerve, in public and at the fine dinner table, that's why!!! Well, he suceeded again, so her eyeballs a rolling again, and probably still are, well past the meal. Mine would be still rolling and cussing this Boehner underneath my sweet breathe & in my mind at the same time !!! lol. Ah yes. Mr. Mr. BHO enjoyed a "nice"cigarette or two after that meal, as his regular smoking routine. I know these things. But I wonder if Mr. BHO likes Regular or Menthol cigaretes. I would like to know, because I know a little something about the Regular and the Menthol cigarette smokers too !!! So, let's have it Newser!

I couldn't stand her from the moment she was proud to be an American for the first time. And I'll admit at first I didn't like the king simply because he was black. But then I changed my way of thinking about him. I can't stand him because he's a socialist and a Muslim supporter. And I don't care what you think, I believe he was born in Kenya and probably came to Hawaii at maybe 1 or 2 weeks old. Or is it against a kingly edict to even think that.
