Obamamedia Headline of the Day: “Michelle Obama Breaks Jumping Jacks Record”

Posted by on Dec 12, 2011 at 10:15 am

Geez, we hate to quibble with the fawning media coverage accorded this woman, but to claim she has set a world record is absurd. Obviously these “world records” don’t mean much when you get a few hundred thousand kids to jump up and down  and call it a record.

Michelle Obama is now a world record holder.

The first lady announced in an email Monday that her October bid to break the record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period succeeded. Mrs. Obama says 300,265 people participated, shattering the old record.

In order to achieve her goal, Mrs. Obama led about 400 elementary and middle-school students from Washington in jumping jacks on the South Lawn of the White House. Other jumping jacks events were held around the world on Oct. 11.

I’m wondering if the media will also report the Obamas set a world record for most number of Christmas trees or record levels of spending on lavish vacations?

    Reminiscent of North Korean propaganda: Dear Leader tries golf for the first time, and scores multiple holes-in-one.
    Whatever, Dude.

    What normal woman in her right mind would brag that she made the world record number of jumping-jacks?
    *rolling eyes*

    If Guinness put this in their Book of World Records, they are dead to me and I will never refer to them ever again.

    Ahaha, “Jumping jacks” not flapjacks. I thought this was a story on her eating habits. Bummer.

    New record for the number of kids skipping school on behalf of Democrat party protest.

    Well…this truly is Obama’s greatest accomplishment of his entire presidency. Getting his wife to do something not on the public dole, and look like an ass doing it at the same time.
