I noted with little interest the cheap shot here today by Cheri Jacobus of the first lady, Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaMichelle Obama criticizes lack of diversity in politics: one side is 'all white, all men' Obama interrupts Michelle's appearance with 25th anniversary tribute Michelle Obama: Young people feel what's happening now 'not what they were taught' MORE. This is how hyperpartisan Republicans spend the Christmas season! How sad. There they go again.

This does give me a reason to applaud the great work our first lady is doing to help American military families. She has made support for military families a priority, and I applaud her for it.

Michelle Obama is one of countless Americans helping those who serve our country, and they all deserve our praise and support.

In fact, on this Christmas, homelessness is rising in the land, and many of the homeless are veterans. I hope we all can find ways to help and support the homeless veterans and wounded warriors who serve our country so bravely.

That is the true spirit of Christmas!
