If the scandal sheets like National Enquirer are correct (it’s possible given the fact that the rag got it right when they scorched John Edwards), Michelle O will be settling down in D.C. with the girls and her mother while The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer will “settle in his native Hawaii, where he’ll live with longtime pal” Bobby Titcomb who was arrested in an undercover prostitution bust in Honolulu in April 2011.
So, if The High Priestess of School Lunches divorces ‘Ol Jug Ears, what will she do with her time?
Tongues started wagging when Keith Koffler, veteran White House reporter and proprietor of White House Dossier wrote:
“Look out. First Lady Michelle Obama might just run for Senate from Illinois in 2016.”
“How do I know? She’s raised her profile a lot, she’ll have pressure from Democrats to get in and pick up a GOP seat, and her own strong commitment to left wing values will help impel her to make the race—to continue to ‘make a difference.’”
“Should Michelle Obama choose to run, she would be a formidable candidate in every way, from public speaking to fundraising to policy to media and more. But either way, just the fact that anyone is speculating sends a flattering signal to a beloved first lady who America would clearly like to keep in the public eye.”
Oh, Sally, bless your heart. Beloved First Lady? I’m throwing the bullshit flag on ya.
Remember when the New Nefertiti of the Windy City on the campaign trail in Madison, Wisconsin said this, “And let me tell you something—for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment.”
Appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, Juan Williams fired off this comment. "She's got the Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress thing going. Her instinct is to start with this ‘Blame America’, ‘I’m the victim’. If that stuff starts to come out people will go bananas. She’ll go from being the new Jackie O to something of an albatross.”
I’d like to go back to what our LGBT friend Sally Kohn said about Lady M’s formidability on policy. “Should Michelle Obama choose to run, she would be a formidable candidate in every way, from public speaking to fundraising to policy to media and more.” [Emphasis mine].
Recently, The High Priestess of School Lunches defended the USDA rules she championed, telling Congress, “The last thing that we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids’ health. It’s unacceptable to me not just as First Lady, but as a mother.”
Amanda Radke wrote:
“However, the changes the First Lady is pushing on public schools don’t apply to her daughters Malia and Sasha, who attend a swanky private school that is exempt. In fact, the Obama girls reportedly are served foods not allowed on public school lunch menus; this includes foods like meatball subs, ice cream novelties, deviled egg salad, barbecued chicken wings, barbecued sliders, all natural beef nachos, baked three-cheese lasagna, pepperoni flatbread pizzas, cheese quesadillas, and chicken curry.”
Some kids even tweeted photos of their stomach-turning school lunches.
The Hypocrisy Meter blows up when you read the menu from just one of the State Dinners at the White House: arugula with onion seed vinaigrette, red lentil soup with fresh cheese, roasted potato dumplings with tomato chutney, chick peas and okra, green curry prawns, collard greens with coconut aged basmati, pumpkin pie tart, pear tatin, whipped cream and caramel sauce, petit fours, cashew brittle, pecan pralines, passion fruit and vanilla gelees and chocolate dipped fruit. Is it any wonder she has such a ginormous ba-donk-a-donk posterior?
When she starts talking like she's Gandhi, the overheated Left start dreaming of their dynasty. We’ve seen this movie before.
Seven months before the 2012 general election at a “Bring Your Kids to Work” day event, the Wookiee answered a child’s question about her interest in running for president. "Absolutely not. No.”
"Being president is a really hard job and it’s an important job," she said. "And when my husband is running for president, we’re right in there; we’re serving, too. And I think that once his terms are over, we’ll go on to do other important things—because there are so many ways that you can help this country and the world, even if you’re not president of the United States."
"And I think one of the things you learn about yourself as you get older are what are your strengths and what are your interests. And for me it’s other stuff that is not being the president. So I probably won’t run. But that’s a great question."
Now, here’s what The Insufferable Airhorn told ABC’s Kelly Ripa when she asked, "In 10 years from now, if Mrs. Obama turns to you and announces that she wants to run for office, what would your honest reaction be?"
"I would say, 'Where did you take my wife? I was sure that there had been an alien body-snatching going on. One thing I can promise you is that Michelle will not run for office."
You forgot to add “PERIOD” there buddy.
One final thought, in her 1985 Princeton senior thesis entitled Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community, we can look through the window of her bias wherein she scolds universities as being designed to cater socially and academically to whites.
Affirmative action eclipsed racial diversity. Her thesis’ suppositional conclusion condemned other black alumni at Princeton because they identified with inclusive American culture more than they valued the color of their skin.
We were fooled and made a fool. We’ve seen this movie before. Have we learned nothing?
