Michelle Obama, who broke the traditional first lady model by campaigning nonstop for her husband's reelection and boosting him among women and younger voters, is now considered the gold standard for modern-day presidential spouses. "There is no question that the first lady raised the bar for future spouses -- not just because of how hard she worked but also her sway and popularity with voters," said Karen Finney, former spokeswoman for former first lady Hillary Clinton. "Rated on energy, charm, and political smarts, Michelle Obama is the most important and successful first lady in a presidential campaign
Comments: No!! Now there's only so much a human being can take of this insanity. Isn't it amazing the name of Laura Bush does not pass those idiots' lips. s/o Their arrogance continues to amaze me. And to think we have to look at that hateful witch for four more years. Oh groan.
Michelle has no class. Michelle has NO dignity. She is the worst first lady ever. She is ignorant and arrogant. She loves taking her many expensive, lavish, and luxurious vacations all at the taxpayers' expense; she brings all her family and friends. She does this, because before her husband was elected she could not travel in such luxury or style. She feels quite entitled. No, she is a horrid, wretched first lady, and she should keep her opinions to herself. We do not want her advice, and we certainly do want to see so much of her.
They have to make up stories like this because Michelle is so pathetic. She can't even speak English, dresses as if she is in competition with her teenage daughter, has ugly armpits and behaves in an unseemly matter in public. She may be a woman ?? but she ain't no lady and never will be.
Nancy Reagan, Jackie Kennedy exuded elegance and class. Laura Bush next. Barbara Bush was on my list until I had the experience of being around her BUT even she was better on her worst day than Michelle.
The lsm and dem operatives keep telling us that each of the 0bamas are, ''the best,'' at this &, ''the best at that,'' but all we know is that America's suffering increases every day. And now, after this unbelievably questionable election, 0bama threatens to double down on his, 'transformation,' of America. mmm mmm mmm
Lady Bird came into my place of business several times...before, during and after their years, and was absolutely delightful. Her native home was nearby. Typically East Texan....graceful, polite, charming, with lots to say and cordial to everyone. We always looked forward to her visits.
Is she going with the messiah to Asia? I hope -- I hope...
AND take the iranian/jarret with -- at the taxpayer's expense of course -- as the price of gas hits $5.00 and food sky/rockets in the "real" world....AND -- poor New Yorkers and New Jerseyits shiver in the cold with carter/gas/lines...
Grooooooan -- save US from their insanity...
Wake up demorats. You got what you prayered for and it stinks....
P.S. ehy mooochelle --he stinks in the morning because he smokes.....duhhhh....
End Affirmative action by race and make it on merit and need.
Do the obama girls need a hand up or can Barack and Michelle pay their way out of his now $11 million?
Affirmative action by need and merit benefits the country as high brainpower poverty kids get a hand up--works across the board and Asian kids succeed on their own--they need it? They probably don't take it or fake it like Elizabeth Warren.
Barack Soetoro Frank Marshall Davis Hussein Obama II has another surprise for the whites. Mandated and enforced race based outcomes. Your next doctor might be an affirmative action prop up? Actually, the Indians from India are quite superb--wonder if they will do being just darker shaded Caucasians?
The insanity will only get worse from here. As the Curse of Obama descends even further upon the nation, up will be down, good will be bad, ignorance will be bliss, and saying you've never been proud of America makes you a great First Lady.
FTA: "Michelle Obama, who broke the traditional first lady model by campaigning nonstop for her husband's reelection...." I'm sure she all tuckered out from doing this since she doesn't know what a truly tough day of work is, so she'll need to take an enormously expensive vacation at our expense to rest up. In fact, I would venture to say that she "worked so hard" to guarantee continued taxpayer funded vacations for her, her mom and kids. I've been wanting to go to the Grand Canyon on vacation for a few years now, but can't justify spending the money especially now that my husband has been laid off. Sigh.....
This fluff, like liberalism, works only in the absence of crisis. If we are truly confronted by an existential threat these people tend to become Conservative fast. After 9/11 even lesbians were looking for the nearest man. Pablum.
Sorry but Michelle O is disgusting. She dresses funny, talks like trash and acts like she entitled. Also those wide belts do not do a thing for her figure except make her look like she is trying to be some kind of dumb rapper with their odd clothes.
Please forgive me for all this posting. I just heard on FOX that Obama will be speaking at 1 pm to say he has a "mandate" to raise taxes on the " rich." Also he will take NO questions. He never does. We are in a dictatorship folks.
At least we liked and respected Lady Bird. We could see some benefit in planting "a bush, a tree, or a shrub" (apply thick Texas twang here). Subsequent First Ladies were arguably as good or better than Mrs. Johnson, but Michelle is certainly not.
Remember Bess Truman? She came from humble beginnings, was bright enough to know it, and made the obvious conclusion that her husband was the president, not her. She's head and shoulders above the current self appointed Queen.
She had her lawe license removed from her wall by the state of Illinois, in the middle of the day. Any others have this distinction? We are in for it folks. These morons are about revenge and ruining what they see as "White America"
Just read on Drudge, Obama is shutting down oil exploration (shale exploration I think) out west. He is wasting no time in increasing our dependence on the Muzzies.
With this election, what Muchelle wears, eats, does, doesn't matter. Who cares what gets written about her.Why are we even wasting time on this? What matters is that this country that was at a tipping point on November 6 has now tipped. And we should be seriously thinking about how to get it back, or we should just give up. If we are not going to give up, then please, let's not get side tracked on this crap about this ugly woman. We need to take the SENATE in 700+ days. That's important. But, Muchelle, not.
When George W. Bush was president of the United States, many of the left fell prey to what columnist Charles Krauthammer called "Bush Derangement Syndrome": "the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush." With Bush out of office, BDS has waned somewhat. Unfortunately, it has been replaced by a converse condition, just as grave and dangerous to the mental stability of its victims: "Obama Worship Syndrome." Primarily affecting low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) announced that she introduced a bill aimed at ensuring that rural states get their fair share of federal communications services, such as broadband. Ayotte said her home state currently receives only 37 cents for every dollar they contribute to the Universal Service Fund (USF) — a federal rural communications program. “In our increasingly digital world, it´s critical that rural communities be able to take advantage of the economic and educational benefits of high-speed Internet access,” Ayotte said Wednesday. The USF Equitable Distribution Act, S. 1766, would ensure that a rural state is guaranteed to receive at
President Obama on Wednesday compared the challenges of health care reform to the civil rights movement as he urged young people to do “whatever they can” to help boost enrollment in Obamacare. In an address to a youth summit hosted at the White House, Obama urged young supporters to not get “discouraged” amid the health care law´s rocky rollout and with polls showing declining support for the president´s signature achievement. “Stuff that´s worth it is always hard. The civil rights movement was hard. Getting women the right to vote, that was hard. Making sure that workers had the right to
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough held an unpublicized meeting with Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.), chairman of the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm, amid anger and anxiety that ObamaCare’s botched rollout could cost the party its majority next year. In the meeting, requested by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), McDonough and Bennet discussed what the White House could do to help vulnerable Senate Democrats and “talked about developing a stronger relationship with the White House,” according to one senior Democratic aide familiar with the conversation. Democratic senators fear the White House is not sympathetic enough to their plight. After the
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that immigration is an issue that disproportionally affects women. “Immigration is really a woman issue,” Ros-Lehtinen said at Wednesday´s Women Rule Summit in Washington, D.C. “It’s a family centered issue and I think we need to focus it more that way and look at how it impacts domestic violence. … This issue of immigration directly impacts and it’s usually the mom and the kids.” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said that women in her state of Minnesota say that “the economy is what they care about the most” and said that “we’re really proud of our Senate
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday. The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said. No one claimed responsibility for the shooting. The U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed in late 2012 when Islamist militants assaulted the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
The Department of Health and Human Services has crowned a YouTube video entitled “Forget About The Price Tag” as the grand prize winner in a contest meant to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare. The video contest, announced in August — in partnership with a group called Young Invincibles — encouraged participants to produce clips filled with pro-Obamacare messaging. HHS’s grand prize-winning video, announced Monday by the White House, features a young woman named Erin McDonald singing an Obamacare-loving version of Jessie J’s hit single, “Price Tag.” Without a hint of irony, McDonald sings her chorus: “Ain’t about
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
