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.

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?

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.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

White House asks American parents to

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House
Daily Caller, by Sarah Hofmann    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:05:02 AM     Post Reply
A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:01:50 AM     Post Reply
One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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?
