Why Michelle Obama Won’t Run in 2020

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/26/2019 4:58:29 AM

The Democrats are clearly losing confidence that their declared presidential candidates can beat President Trump in 2020. They tout polls showing that any of their top four candidates would win the general election were it held now, but only the most naïve take such hypothetical matchups seriously. Moreover, they can see that their leading candidate is so fuddled that he frequently forgets his talking points and even where he is on a given day, while his competitors are so far left of the mainstream that Trump would trounce them. This is why so many on the left have turned their desperate eyes to Michelle Obama.

Why would she? David Geffen's yacht holds more appeal than trying to look somber in front of a d@mn flag. In her heart she knows she's not mentally capable either, and would give SloJo a run for his money...

Not enough time. She just purchased 29 acres. Next spring she will be busy planting her new garden. I am sure she will share the wealth with her new neighbors.

I have mixed opinions about this. Yeah, (s)he says she hates living in the WhiteHouse and is to lazy and entitled to work.... But (s)he also loves the public spotlight and to be adored by a fawning press and public, and would get much more of that if (s)he were President, especially if (s)he came in to "Save the Democrat Party" from the current horde of buffoons that are currently asking for the job ..... And Besides, Valerie Jarrett would actually run the whole administration from behind the scenes, so the Mooch could be on ten million dollar a day vacations for the duration, with little actual responsibility. So I put the likelyhood on he(r) running at 50%- 50%..... I wouldn't want to bet money on it either way

Michelle Obama is thoroughly unlikeable. She is an ABW, angry black woman. She is lazy. She is vainglorious to a fault and does not have a genuine love for this country. She is a racist and definitely would work to pit us against one another. She is an agitator. There is nothing to commend her for the job. Frankly, and we all know it, she could not stand up to the rigors of campaigning. She is a pampered, coddled woman with an entitlement mentality. She would be unprepared for the rigors of the job. If she thinks that Donald Trump would go easy on her, she is sorely mistaken. He is all about winning. He wouldn’t hold back on her husband’ failures and I don’t believe she could handle that. She may enjoy being wooed to run, but she would not enjoy the reality of the fight this President would bring. He knows just how high the stakes are for the country and there is no way he is going to back down, lighten up, or give deference to Mrs. O. DJT is in it to win it!

The left tried running a First Lady to their everlasting chagrin. Only utter desperation would drive them down that road again and certainly not with Michelle Obama as their candidate. She is angry, anti-American, disbarred with no accomplishments to her name. She craves the limelight and runs from responsibility. The “most admired woman in the world” is not giving up this current gig for anything.

Trump would trounce her - not "probably. People voted for Obama because of his skin color. And there was noting to commend Barack to be the President - other than his skin color. She has more than a "good" life.

Character, gravitas, leadership, courage, sense of self sacrifice. All is either not present or at VERY poor levels. This is another poster child of affirmative action - entitled, selfish, lazy, irresponsible, resentful, obnoxious. The fact that she is as popular indicates the deep seated nature of problems with our society and culture. Will she run? My money says no. But I haven't won any lotteries lately.

Look at her history. She failed to pass the bar exam. She has never done real legal work. She got a sinecure with the Univ. of Chicago which was not filled when she left. She likes to take inordinately expensive vacations. The only thing we can deduce from the past is that she is a self-indulgent whiner. Look at her undergraduate thesis. What is it about? Her at Princeton. That's not a thesis; it's a whiny autobiography. The only fire in the belly comes when she is being criticized or not being indulged. The POTUS gig is tough; Moochelle doesn't do tough. She does whine. Now she is free to do wine. She gets attention in return for doing nothing. That's her dream job.

If Michelle couldn't hold her temper or tongue when it was all going right for her (First Lady, first black president as husband, 50 staff doing her bidding on trifles, jetting off to Europe for shopping & concerts, constant fawning from media) how is she going to respond when it all goes wrong for her or merely threatens to go wrong? This woman is quicker to anger than even Hillary Clinton - and Hillary wakes up angry every morning. Trump (and I, to be fair) would delight in needling her. If anything, his criticism of Elijah Cummings and The Squad has demonstrated that he doesn't fear the 'racist' tag since a) he's called racist anyway and b) they'll have to confront reality at some point. Michelle would take the bait all day long. She would be helpless in discussions of the issues in-depth, not least because she hasn't been involved in them. She would be hopeless in debates, gritting her teeth and pegging the volume knob at 11.

The Mooch would have to explain how she really met Obama and answer questions why her Law License was suspended.. There are troves of unanswered questions about the Obama's that were never answered because the media feared being called a racist.

I have no concern about Mike running. It just isn't happening. The left is surely smart enough to know that running for president is not a popularity contest. Besides as you all have stated, she isn't giving up her cushy life or lifestyle, not for the country she wasn't proud of till after her husband was elected president.

MO has never turned down a money deal just because she had to work in order to see those dollar bills. Why would she decline to fill this position? As she has done in other instances, she manages to muddle through using others as her proxy, only contributing the name. If she does make the decision to 'run' , do we then tie her shoe laces together in order to STOP her? OMG, to once again be forced to view the fashions seen during her former 'stage presence', women everywhere are gritting their teeth and cringing.

Just for giggles. let's look at Mooch getting the candidate nod at the Convention. The Dem preliminary debates will be over. She can use the "Trump Racist" excuse to avoid ever having to debate him. Instead, her time would be spent on the Leftist MSM's plethora of talk shows where she would be met with adulation, and not have to worry about anything like criticism. Add to this, the Left's corrupt control of most of the Nation's major population centers, and their ability to magically make ballots for their candidates appear out of thin air,(or trunks of cars) , and Shazaam! Mooch is President. In politics, especially a system corrupt as this one. there is no sure thing and Republicans will have to work twice as hard in 2020 as they did in 2016.

In response to the circumventing the Constitution referred to in the article, ostensibly giving Barak Obama a third term, I would not put this past liberals. After all, they are currently trying to circumvent the Constitution with regard to the Electoral College, so why would they not do it for a woman a recent liberal pole showed her to be the most respected woman in the world? Remember we are dealing with an ideology that wishes to destroy this country.

Why Climate Action Flopped at the G-7 15 replies
Posted by MissMolly 8/28/2019 5:11:18 AM Post Reply
Despite President Emmanuel Macron’s effort to push climate change to the front of the discussion during the recently concluded G-7 meeting in France, the confab ended without a concrete agreement to take action on the issue. Some of the blame was laid at the feet of President Donald Trump, who was “a no-show at a crucial session on climate change” today. While blaming Trump for the lack of progress on climate change might make for a good headline, the broader story is more complex. Indeed, a look at the numbers shows that the U.S. has slashed its coal use and cut its total greenhouse emissions

The Obamas are reportedly in the process of buying the island property, which was originally listed at listed at $14,850,000, from Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck. Though the deal has yet to be finalized, both TMZ and the Boston Herald have reported that the Obamas are in escrow.

As president of the Harvard student Democrat organization in 2000, she worked for Al Gore’s doomed presidential campaign and, in 2016, she tweeted up a storm for Hillary Clinton, promoting the “Lesbians for Hillary” campaign for the activist group LPAC.

The war of the wives started Sunday when a supporter of the right-wing Bolsonaro posted photos of the two leaders’ wives. The post suggested that Bolsonaro’s 37-year-old wife is more attractive than Brigitte Macron.

Beyond the glossy shiplap and farmhouse décor is a fact about the “Fixer Upper” homes that many Waco, Texas, real estate agents – and owners – are learning the hard way: they’re not easy to sell. Earlier this month, the listing agent representing the “Asian Ranch House” featured on Season 2 of the hit HGTV show made headlines when she admitted that the home’s $679,000 price tag was likely burdening its sale. For comparison, real estate agent Marilee Kahler of RE/MAX Centex Realtors in Waco told Fox News that the current, average price for homes sold in the area hovered around $215,000.

In March 2013, U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied under oath before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Clapper responded with a flat denial. “No, sir. … Not wittingly. There are cases where it could, inadvertently perhaps. But not wittingly.” This was a blatant lie, told knowingly and willingly, in public and under oath. Just months later, Edward Snowden's leaks proved it. Clapper had been exposed, and he could have been prosecuted, if not for the chummy Washington culture in which the powerful protect one another.

I am sorry for harm that I have caused.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back from vacation which means her modern-day fireside chats via Instagram Live are back in action. With these online townhall comes a bevy of asinine and concerning statements coming from the freshman Congresswoman's kitchen. Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire captured much of her comments from Tuesday night's showing. AOC says she had a rather stressful vacation due to one major issue she is most concerned about -- climate change (also known as global warming before predictions made by Al Gore didn't exactly pan out). "Even when I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning,

Former vice president Joe Biden has been leading the Democratic field in most polls since he entered the race, but even he acknowledges that he’s a long way from winning the nomination. If he does, Biden said it would be ideal for his ticket to reflect the diversity of the American population. The presidential hopeful told a small group of black journalists Tuesday that if he wins the nomination, he’d prefer that his vice presidential candidate not be a white male. Asked by Washington Post reporter Vanessa Williams whether it would be important to him to select a running mate

Bernie Sanders has been touting Canada’s health care system as far superior than anything here in the United States. At the same time there have been several articles debunking that reputation by patients needing immediate care. I must disagree with all the 2020 Democrat candidates who are proposing the single payer socialist health system. I believe we have the best system in the world and my recent health care proves it. If I lived in Canada, I’d be dead.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told fans on a live stream Tuesday that if climate change isn’t stopped, glaciers could melt and expose humans to diseases tens of thousands of years old. “There are a lot of diseases that are frozen in some of these glaciers that scientists fear that there is a potential that a lot of diseases could escape these melted glaciers,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Instagram Live. “Things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that they’re going to get into our water, and that humans could contract them, and they’re going to be diseases that

As summer draws to an unofficial close this week, movie theaters and Hollywood are whining about the disappointing income year of 2019. Or at least that part of Hollywood that isn’t owned by the Walt Disney Co. Movie ticket sales revenues for the summer, which comprises only a third of the year but usually more than 40 percent of ticket sales, are down two percent for the summer and down over six percent for the year. [Snip] The National Association of Theater Owners, which represents the nation’s 40,313 movie screens, plus the 524 surviving drive-ins, claims the average ticket price is down a few pennies

Florida farmers formed a coalition this summer to study and combat the impact of climate change on agriculture in the state. The group also might seek new state subsidies to ensure the future of farming and open land in the nation's third-most populous state. (snip) Trees help to capture carbon -- a major greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. Open land also allows rainwater to soak in and recharge groundwater aquifers that feed many public water supplies. The Climate-Smart group believes farmers or any landowner could receive payment or tax cuts for such benefits. Nothing like that exists in the United States, the group acknowledges.
