First Lady Michelle Obama's First Boyfriend Speaks Out

A man named David Upchurch is now telling media sources about his stint as First Lady Michelle Obama's first boyfriend. The then 18-year-old Mrs. O was escorted by him to her Whitney Young High School prom in Chicago (above pic). They grew up together, were neighbors in the Chi, and David now lives in Colorado Springs, CO. He says the reason they broke up is because he didn't have his life together and he was "a screw up". He says: "I always knew Michelle was special and would make a difference in the world." I guess the First Lady wasn't taking any ish even back then. Seven years later she met a law student named Barack Obama. And the rest is history. Loves it. Pics of First Lady Michelle volunteering at a D.C. soup kitchen when you read the rest... First Lady Michelle O. stopped by Miriam's Kitchen--a soup kitchen for the homeless and those who can't afford food only blocks from the White House--to serve and speak with people who came to eat there. Looks like she brought some freshness and fabness and service to everyone's day.  Nice.

It's amazing how many people

It's amazing how many people assume this man is a deadbeat without knowing his story or basically judging him by his appearance. He very well may be a productive citizen and the shorcomings he spoke of may have been something far less the assumed and perceived wrongdoings expressed in several postings.

I don't think this Brother is

I don't think this Brother is a dead beat at all. It just took him longer to get his act together. I would venture to say that it takes most of us until we are in our 20's before the lights fully turn on.

Girl, don't you know how to take criticism? I mean, you insult everyone who has something to say about your comments. You need to chill out for a sec and peep how to carry on a civil discussion and respect the sharing of different opinions, cuz you OBVIOUSLY have a problem.

We are all granted first

We are all granted first amendment rights as citizens of these United States of America, entitled to expression as long as we don't have intentions of doing bodily harm to anyone, quote me if I am wrong for not using those exact words.But let us limit the misuse of the English language giving opinions about anyone one thing or person.Perception is are we all comfortable with our dress, performance on and off our jobs but respecting the right and privileges of others who take out time to do resourceful things for and within our communities which we missed from past "First Ladies". Be humble in writing about those who mean well and consider everyone has or had a mother, sister, granny etc. and we do want those stated to be respected on all levels.Amen

That is so wonderful how nice

That is so wonderful how nice things are reported too. He is a real man he admitted to his short comings but its ok because things happened for a reason. God was preparing Michelle for what she has become due to his graces. Bless us all

Dave didn't come crawling out

Dave didn't come crawling out of the woodwork looking to cash in on his past. He has been approached by several magazines since last year. He was asked some horrible questions about he and Michelle. He handled himself and the situation with respect and diginity.

Hold up, folks! I love

Hold up, folks! I love Barack but let's think about this. Just because one man may be more outwardly successful than another does not make him the best match for you and your happiness. Money, success, and good looks do not automatically make someone more suited for your personality. Michelle's old boyfriend looks like he could be an easy going and nice fella. He's not poison to the eyes either. She may have been just as happy marrying him.

That guy said he was and

That guy said he was and F****up, don't let the plastic bag fool you, he's a well educated man, owns Multi-million dollar realestate property and he's worth $15million, so she may have made a better choice but any women would like to be his husband. Things happen for a reason. And black people,stop stereo typing your own people, a change has been made in America, you need to worry about how can you better yourself. Putting down your own people just let me know that some blacks just can't change, and I'm white married to a beautiful black women with good credit, stop it people. Oh yeah, I handle his porfolio

After getting to know her(through the media) I realize that she is a beautiful person with style, grace, dignity, and class. She is a very giving person and I love that. A lot of people think Oprah is ugly but I think she is beautiful. I feel like the difference between being pretty and being beautiful is character. With that being said First Lady Michelle O is beautiful. Youre just a dull mind so not much can be expected from you

To be quite frank, I

To be quite frank, I ,neither, have found Mrs. Obama to be extraordinarily beautiful, or even plainly beautiful. (I'm scared to be cyber-beatdown but)her eyebrows make me think of the Grinch who stole christmas. But the point is, man should not be defined by his outward appearance. She has done good works for the community, worked hard to achieve her own personal success (for a very long time at that) and very well might have a wonderful heart. All characteristic worth a million times more than so-called "beauty" when we are talking about fulfillment. A beautiful face cannot make someone else happy. If a person marries a beautiful face with no other redeeming characteristics, that person is not happy because the beautiful face is around, but because they feel they've achieved enough success to attain that beautiful face. It's like winning a trophy. The trophy doesn't make you happy, but that fact that you feel you deserve that trophy makes you happy.

Michelle is better than me, I

Michelle is better than me, I can only hand out food at homeless shelters so many times . . . I must say, Michelle is lucky in love. I know lots of women who leave a "screw up" only to be alone forever a very long time. And they are well educated Black women who seem to have no "baggage" I hope I am as blessed.

[quote comment="444587"]Looks like Mrs. Obama was a class act back in the day, and she had what a lot of young women today lack.....STANDARDS.[/quote] Exactly....people waste too much time excusing bad behavior in relationships; trying to turn tenements (people not for you_ into dream houses (your ideal mate). Building our own foundations starts with having standards and stepping away from the BS when it starts. When people show you who they are, believe them--for better or worse.
