Michelle Obama 2016: Why Not?
Atlantic, by Espeth Reeve

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/10/2012 5:15:16 AM

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.

People love her? Really? The thought of this makes me want to vomit. I was hoping for parole this past week and instead got 4 years to life, maybe the death penalty. I am in no mood for this garbage.

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.

By the end of her husbands term, people will be sick of seeing either of them.

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.

I´ve already heard local liberals saying that they like Michelle much more than her husband and she should run. If she does, they´ll fix the votes so she wins, too. It will all be rigged.

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?

I have NO respect for her husband Oblamo or the PIAPS. Yeah she´s the biggest Democrap rock star alright. More like rock head.

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.

Several things occur to me.
1. MO was so unpopular during the 1st run that she had to be hidden away because she was hurting hubby´s chances.

2. When she really tightens her fat little grip on the food supply in this country, maybe the Obama voters will finally see that there really is no Santa Claus.

She is beyond appalling in behaviour and character.

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.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice
Politico Magazine, by Rich Lowry    Original Article

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use linked with
brain abnormalities, study finds

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development.
