Michelle Obama is Dem rock star
many wish would run for president

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Amie Parnes and Judy Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/12/2018 9:24:01 AM

The most popular Democrat in the country is about to go on a highly-anticipated book tour that is likely to remind the country of her political muscle. Michelle Obama will talk to large crowds in arenas that hold rock concerts and NBA games. She’ll appear all over the media, and sell more books, in all likelihood, than prospective 2020 candidates Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. But the former first lady is decidedly not running for president. “Absolutely not,” she said in a Thursday interview on the “Today Show” before a large crowd of fans. “I have never

Comments:
Dems realize the unruly mob of candidates lining up for 2020 are all duds. Maybe Me-Chelle will save the day?

At least the headline may be correct ‘dem rock star’, but I don’t think she’s swayed 1 repub or independent..

She has a couple of advantages over the other female candidates
1. While no beauty queen she is considerably better looking than either The PIAPS or Princes Gray Beaver
2. She can form a coherent sentence without coughing her lungs out
3. Her husband is a more recent democrat hero
4. She assuages the conscience of guilty white lie-berals

Notice none of those things have anything to do with policies which to my knowledge she has avoided speaking about other than her atrocous school lunch debacle

She is the only Dem with name recognition who does not have a track record which shows how out of touch he/she is with the American people. Unfortunately for the Dems, she is only not disliked because she has rarely been in the spotlight. She is decidedly not charismatic. She may be likable in person, but on the public stage she comes across poorly.

Try to find and read (if you can bear it) her essay written in her Junior year at Princeton. It has been suitably buried by Google. Frankly I could write and reason better than that in third grade! Talk about arrested development. Good news is that it will be Barack´s third term. Bad news is.. well you get the picture.

That being said, she is still a nasty, nasty person with a foul mouth. She would play well with some demographics, but she would lose big time. Don´t think President Trump would not focus on her no show job and losing her law license, just as a starter. Sasquatch would not gain much sympathy since she likely outweighs the Donald!

So Micheal is more popular with Dims now? It would be fun to see him run for the Presidency. He could re-introduce his husbands policies constricting businesses and raise taxes again as his hubby Beach House Barry did and bring the country back down to its knees again. And of course tell us all what to eat while he and his hubby eat anything they like.

Ah yes. The return to an authoritarian regime. So we can become Venezuela! Oh the Micheal is such a Mooch, ain´t he? Barry likes men and Michael likes men. What a pair of Marxists.

She is even less qualified than Barry-O was! Her accomplishments on her own are meager, relatively speaking. She has a law degree from Harvard and worked as a lawyer for a while. Everything else she did was because she was Barry´s wife. Is that enough of a record to run for President on?

She has become very matronly. Her face is doughy. Her teeth look more crooked than ever. This probably endears her to some.

I saw a brief clip of her talking about her BFF George W and the cough drop. (Seeing him offer one to Laura, Mooch jumped in and asked him for one.) Every tiny incident in her life is such a big deal to her...

Amie Parnes has been in love with Mooch for a long time. The Parnes-O-Meter, which kept track of Parnes’s shamesless Mooch puff pieces, became notorious…

From 2011:

Amongst Washington reporters and WH staffers, there’s a longstanding inside joke that Politico‘s Amie Parnes has a special way of covering the White House, namely, that she provides near universally glowing and breathless coverage of the first lady (and has even caused some to wonder whether she’s angling for a job in the East Wing). She’s a flak’s dream come true: a reporter who covers everything and anything with nary a critical tone. For the foreseeable future we’re going to chronicle Parne’s stories about the White House and see if she ever can take a critical look at the First Family. Maybe Bo is ungroomed one day?(Snip)

We’re not the only ones who have noticed Parnes’ smooching.

Each week we’ll bring you Parnes’ story samplings and give her a weekly Parnes-o-meter rating of 1 to 10 kisses. For instance, 1 is mild suckup, and 10 is, well, she might as well be making out with FLOTUS.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

According to a new report by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — who just announced her intentions to run for president in 2020 — once touted her work for an anti-LGBT organization and railed against “homosexual extremists.” Gabbard’s prior comments are in sharp contrast to her more recent record in support of LGBT rights and seem to stem to work she did with her father. Gabbard’s father, Mike, was an anti-LGBT activist in Hawaii and ran a political action group that promoted traditional marriage. Rep. Gabbard is even quoted in one of the press releases. Kaczynski reports: Gabbard herself

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
