Michelle O best since
Lady Bird Johnson

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 8:49:22 PM

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

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.

Laura Bush, Barbara Bush and Nancy Reagan each had more class in one molecule of their bodies than Moo-chelle has in her entire very large body!!!!!

I can only guess that Paul knows the dictatorship is coming, and being on good terms with the Empress might save his head...

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.

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.

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?

Or should I just haave said "Gaaccckkk"?

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.....

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.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
