What´s the case against Michelle Obama starting a political career of her own? It starts and ends with the fact that she doesn´t want one. But what if she changes her mind? The first lady has three important things for a future in politics: the popularity, the skills, and the opportunity. (We´ll get to "the will" later.) Here´s the case for her taking her turn on the ballot: People love her. Aside from her husband and Hillary Clinton, the first lady is the biggest rock star in the Democratic Party.
Comments: I dunno.....Marie Antoinette lost her head at the same time as her husband, Louis XVI. At the end, no one wanted her, either. I´m considering a tumbrel.
What has she possibly done to merit anything close to an article like this?
Unless they´re comparing her to her husband or the VP. In that case, she´s about on a par. Who cares who´s in the WH, just put in a figurehead. Who better than a black woman. Oh wait ...I think I just answered my question above.
I knew this was coming,I´m just surprised,so soon.People voting on personality and cult is what has us on the brink of disaster so yea,why not MO,if there´s a country left by 2016.
Idiots like this writer has no clue on the level of destruction Obama plans on imposing on this country.We´re getting ready to be hit by a flood of EPA and Obamacare rules that were held back until after the election. In the coming weeks and months we´ll see even more job bloodbaths.
To makeup for all the lost revenues Obama will simply seize people´s wealth but not rich liberals.The morons who just voted for women´s rights will be at their local welfare office before you know it.
People actually believe Obama has a plan for jobs when his real goal is to kill as many as possible.They´ll look up your voting record and find a way to target you.
If we don´t fix the voting fraud, then of course she would win. Will never believe that Obama won honestly. No tin hat for me, but wish the "experts" would look at the data and explain how the Repub candidates all lost except for two who were in hand counted ballot states with voter ID laws!
This is coming out now because the Democrats have no bench. They have nobody coming up in the ranks to provide even a semblance of leadership in the future. The Democratic party is the party of decrepit old geezers, lifers who have worked for decades and decades to get to this point. Now that they are here, they have no where to go and nobody to hand the party off to. In 2016 they will give us Biden or Hillary, both at, or over Seventy years old. They have no one else.
Having lost her Law license rather than face prosecution for Insurance Fraud certainly qualifies Buick Butt for an additional 8 years of blaming G.W. Bush for Obama ineptitude. Yeahh that´s just a great idea.
Can we expect that after Zero´s term only blacks will be allowed to vote? After all, the playing field has to be leveled to include leveling the country into a pile of ruble. Anything less just wouldn´t be fair now would it?
People love her? Not people that I know. To those people including me this "lady" is nothing more than an angry, big shouldered, wide loaded, steel jawed, entitled, thick armed harridan. I have NO respect for her husband Oblamo or the PIAPS. Yeah she´s the biggest Democrap rock star alright. More like rock head.
Really?!!! Dont write such tripe. By the time 2016 gets here it will be strange if the nation isn´t in a state of revolution and the Obama´s aren´t the most hated people in the U.S. along with the Democra Party.
Yuck! Now this woman? It seems they really care about their two daughters and ensuring their privacy.. NOT! What horrible people, to even come up with this. They just love the limelight, like rock stars! History will not be kind to these two. Fraud? you bethca. Absentee ballots filled out in nursing homes for residents.. from eyewitness accouts. We have gone over the cliff.
Commenters all miss point that despite 4 years of incredible failure, Obama won, again. Success is not a requirement, nor is experience. Michelle has incredible chance not because she is loved (please!) but because the Dems have the blacks, Hispanics, single woman, poor whites, bitter whites, white elitists and the all-important news and entertainment industries. The more things erode under Obama, the more this already large block grows. GOP has a shrinking pool of middle & upper middle income voters, and this group is growing apathetic. President Obama, meet President Obama.
The propaganda for Michelle is beginning in earnest. This is how they are going to extend the Thug Regime indefinitely. After Michelle´s two terms, her daughters will have their turn at the presidency. This is America and we have free elections, doncha know. It´s like the Bush Dynasty.
Hey skip the fluff, go straight to the power behind the throne, get America´s version of Rasputin, put Valerie Jarrett in there. You want continuity you need Jarrett. You won´t be able to tell where Obama left off and Jarrett checked in because Obama is Jarrett. Michelle can become the school food czar.
Why not? She will have more experience than the current bumbling empty suit. She´ll know how to order up a fleet of AF jets to transport herself and huge entourage to any point on the globe. She knows how to throw a party at taxpayers´ expense. Lastly, she´ll have plenty of experience bossing around a bloated and overpaid staff.
Michelle 0bama is not as well liked as the press would like us to believe. Many of us feel she has no class, no dignity, and she wears funny clothes that are too small and too tight. She keeps trying to peddle her many ignorant views upon us all, and she does not even follow her own advice. Michelle, for president, I think not.
If she is so well-liked why do we have to be reminded so often that she is so well-liked? It reminds of when a new sit-com is launched and you are treated to one-liners and a raucous laugh track with a voice telling you how the laughs just keep coming, it´ll have you rolling, there´s no stopping the hilarity, etc. See, it´s funny, get it? You need to watch because it´s funny. So, she´s popular because we say she´s popular, okay? It´s settled, she´s popular.
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
Remember when Bill Clinton was twice elected President as a "New Democrat" who wanted to get along with people in the private economy? Nowadays even writing in favor of ideas that Mr. Clinton supported can get you branded a heretic and banished from impolite liberal society. Witness the political tempest that blew up in response to the December 3 op-ed we published by Democrats Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler of the Third Way think tank. The former aides to Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer, respectively, would be considered liberals in most places outside of the Harvard faculty lounge. But the campus
Maybe he went into sugar shock over a Danish pastry. The president of the United States, leader of the free world, standard-bearer for everything upright, good and wholesome about the nation he leads, lost his morality, his dignity and his mind, using the solemn occasion of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday to act like a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar. In front of 91 world leaders, the mourning nation of South Africa and Obama’s clearly furious wife, Michelle, the president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself at first
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
