According to the Palm Beach Post, Obama will stop in Palm Beach for another fundraiser and also be in Tampa that day for an event:

"The first lady’s quick trip includes a morning stop in Tampa, where she will be joined by Bob Unanue, president of Goya Foods, a National Strategic Partner in the USDA’s Mi Plato — “My Plate” — program."

How sad this town is so full of ignorant people like you two! Pull yourselves out of the FOX spin machine - you may learn something!!

I wish the first lady should do the same for Africa. May GOD increase Obama's wisdom and load him with good and strong motives to win the next elections.

It is only the ignorant ones who have their heads in the sand. Pull your head out for a day and shut off MSNBC and do some searching and maybe you will learn something. How about if you start out with searching for the answer why Obama and his wife have BOTH had to surrender their law licenses. That ought to keep you busy for awhile.

Don't pray for Obama, pray for the people's lives he has destroyed.

Betty you are truely delusional. Our debt has gone from 8 trillion to 16 trillion and you think he is doing a great job? He has spent more in 3 yrs than all the other presidents COMBINED!!! Do you get that? You must be on some sort of government "program" to have not felt the economic strangling that the rest of us have lived with under this moron's reign.
