In Recorded Speech at Virtual DNC, Michelle Obama Accuses the President of “Division”…Why Irony is Embarrassed

FoxNews.com reports that

Former first lady Michelle Obama, in a measured but searing address to close out Democrats’ opening convention night, accused President Trump’s White House of operating in “chaos” and without “empathy” as she urged voters to cast their ballots for Joe Biden like their lives depend on it.

In prerecorded remarks, Obama stressed the “awesome power of the presidency,” while saying the job “requires clear-headed judgment, a masterly of complex and competing issues, a moral compass and an ability to listen.”

She added: “Whenever we look to this White House for some leadership or consultation or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division and a total and utter lack of empathy.”

The address was widely praised by Democrats as a powerful indictment of the administration. But it also came at the close of a first-night program that was awfully bleak at times, especially with Sen. Bernie Sanders repeatedly saying the country is facing the threat of “authoritarianism.”

Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortes told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that they presented a “dystopian” picture of the country. And the unusual format, at the first-ever virtual political convention, also raised eyebrows as videos of musical performances and news-style segments hosted by Eva Longoria were interspersed with remarks from lawmakers.

But Michelle Obama, in an impassioned address, sought to tie the strings together, concluding Trump is “the wrong president for our country.”

“He has had more than enough time…He is clearly in over his head,” she said. “He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us.”

She added: “It is what it is.” (This may have been a swipe at Trump’s infamous comment on coronavirus deaths.)

Obama went on to warn: “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can, and they will if we don’t make a change in this election.”

“If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it,” she said. “I know Joe. He is a profoundly decent man guided by faith.”

Obama did not mention Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who is the first woman of color to be named as a vice presidential nominee for a major party. It’s possible the video was recorded before she was named.

Obama also slammed “the America that is on display for the next generation.”

“A nation that’s underperforming, not simply on matters of policy, but on matters of character, and that’s not just disappointing, it’s downright infuriating,” she said, noting she knows “the goodness and grace” across the country.

Obama said “empathy” was something she has “been thinking a lot about lately.”

“The ability to walk in someone else’s shoes. The recognition that someone else’s experience has values too,” she said. “Most of us practice this without a second thought.”

She went on to say that children in the U.S. “are seeing what happens when we stop requiring empathy of one another.”

“They’re looking around wondering if we’ve been lying to them this whole time,” she said. “They see people shouting in grocery stores unwilling to wear a mask to keep us all safe; they see people calling the police on folks minding their own business just because of the color of their skin…They see our leaders labeling fellow citizens enemy of the state, while emboldening torch-baring white supremacists.”

Meanwhile, Obama referenced her “they go low, we go high” catchphrase, explaining that “going high is the only thing that works” but doesn’t always mean being nice.

“When we go low, degrading and dehumanizing others, we just become part of the other noise that’s drowning out everything else,” she said. “Let’s be clear: going high does not mean putting on a smile and saying nice things when confronted by viciousness and cruelty.”

She added: “Going high means going the higher path—scraping and clawing to that mountain top.”

Let’s review Michelle Obama taking that “higher path” that she referred to last night…

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gave us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:

The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”

Her expensive tastes, during her time as “First Lady”, which included Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, did not exactly endear herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…

Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.

Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.

Not, in the case of our globe-trotting (on our dime) Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama. Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.

Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.

In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the First Lady what she could do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!

Most of the other First Ladies in my 61 years, such as our current one, Melania Trump, have brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

First Lady Melania Trump speaks six different languages fluently and came here on a special Visa which they call the “Einstein” Visa. Plus, she always presents herself as an asset to our nation in public.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama thinks decorum is something you do to a room.

And now, this “mooch” has the nerve to call President Trump “divisive” while calling for average Americans to elect  a man clearly in the throes of dementia as President of the greatest country on the face of God’s green Earth?

America has not forgotten the damage that her, her husband, and Sleepy Joe did in the long, nightmarish 8 years that they were in the White House.

NO, THANK YOU.

Jill Biden Tells CNN She Wants Michelle Obama as Joe’s VP: “I’d Love It If Michelle Would Agree to It”

Xaa6rPfW

FoxNews.com reports that

Former second lady Jill Biden told CNN on Friday that she’d love to see the former first lady accept a spot as running mate on her husband’s ticket.

“I’d love it if Michelle [Obama] would agree to it,” she said. “But I think she’s had it with politics. I don’t know. She’s so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful.”

Her comments came amid speculation surrounding whom former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, would choose as his running mate. Biden has pledged to choose a female running mate but it’s unclear whom that woman will be.

Like his wife, the former vice president said of Obama that he would “take her in a heartbeat.”  “She’s brilliant,” he told a Pittsburgh outlet. “She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends.”

He added, however, that he didn’t think the former first lady was interested in the position. “I don’t think she has any desire to live near the White House again,” he said.

Top Obama advisers have similarly panned the idea that she was interested, while the former first lady herself said in her memoir that she had “no intention of running for office, ever.”

Despite her lack of interest, Obama has polled extremely well. A Gallup poll from last year ranked her as the “most admired woman” for the second year in a row. Another poll last year found that Obama tied with the former vice president among Democratic voters asked about their choice of nominee.

While the former first lady has been praised by Democrats, she’s received backlash for attempting to impose stricter standards on school lunches. She also famously caught backlash for saying in 2008 that she was proud of her country for the first time.

“People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and … for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback,” she said.

Oh, Lawdy.

Didn’t “Mooch” spend enough of our money the first time around?

Is this all a set-up?

The entire nation has seen for themselves that Sleepy Joe doesn’t have both oars in the water anymore.

The poor old guy is suffering from dementia and is it getting visibly worse with each appearance.

Could the Democrat Elite plan on using Michelle Obama to drag Joe Biden across the finish line next November and then have him quit a couple of months in due to “health reasons”?

Installing the first black female president would be lauded by all of the “smartest people in the world” as something truly historic.

Average Americas would just throw up…and, with good reason.

“Mooch” doesn’t like America or average Americans.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there.

Before the Chinese Coronavirus hit, thanks to President Trump, America was well into the process of recovering from the last Obama to hold that office.

The Wuhan Flu was a big enough setback.

Putting the Obamas back in office would dig an economic hole America might never recover from.

Michelle Obama Tweets About Trump Vs. “The Squad”…”It’s Our America”

Screen Shot 2019-01-07 at 12.04.11 PM

“Do they wonder why they (the Obamas) lost? If they were so adored — if their policies, if their agenda was so appreciated, if the American people were so enamored of it and they wanted more and more of it — then why did not Hillary win? Because Obama was campaigning for her.” – Rush Limbaugh, February 2018

FoxNews.com reports that

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has seemingly taken a shot at President Trump amid his ongoing feud with four progressive congresswomen, saying “there’s a place” for natural-born citizens and refugees alike.

Tensions escalated this week when the president blasted the Democratic “squad,” Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., suggesting on Twitter that they “go back” to the countries they came. All four women are U.S. citizens, with Omar being the only one who was born outside of the U.S.

After exchanging several barbs during the week, Trump continued his attacks during Wednesday’s rally, during which a “send her back” chant aimed at Omar broke out from his supporters.

On Friday, the former first lady tweeted what seemed to be a rebuke of the remarks — while stopping short of mentioning the president directly.

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” Mrs. Obama tweeted. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”

Her husband, former President Barack Obama, has not commented in on the feud.

While the Obamas have largely avoided weighing in on political matters since leaving the White House, Friday’s comments are not the first time the former first lady has seemingly tweaked Trump.

“The leader of the free world with a tweet can start a war, can crush an economy, can change the future of our children,” she told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans earlier this month.

She added the next president needs to have “deep seriousness and focus” and operate “with a clear base of facts and ideas.” She also said she thinks her husband sometimes made the presidency look easy.

“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job.”

“…made it look easy”?

Are you kidding me?

Three years into his presidency, Trump is still cleaning up Obama’s mess.

I am not at all surprised that “Mooch” has gotten involved.

Yesterday, the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, issued the following warning…

By the way, don’t be surprised if she gets in the Democrat presidential primary race after the primaries. Don’t be surprised. I think the Obamas are looking at this as, “The primaries? That’s beneath us. We’re not gonna enter the primaries.” They’ll let these people fight it out, spend all their money, and then when it looks like none of them has a chance of beating Trump, here comes Michelle (My Belle) Obama at the latter moments of the campaign to jump into the fray and save the day for the Democrat Party.

After all, her and “The Squad” are “fellow travelers”.

Like “The Squad” and her husband, Former President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has always played The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there.

Michelle Obama’s Mask Slips, Tells Book Tour Crowd “That S*** Don’t Work”…Classy

michelle-obama

“All we have is hope. People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds.” The world is a scary place, and all we have now is hope.” – Michelle Obama on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, February 1918

“Do they wonder why they lost? If they were so adored — if their policies, if their agenda was so appreciated, if the American people were so enamored of it and they wanted more and more of it — then why did not Hillary win? Because Obama was campaigning for her.” – Rush Limbaugh, February 2018

FoxNews.com reports that

Speaking Saturday night at the 19,000-seat Barclays Center in Brooklyn as part of her promotional book tour, former first lady Michelle Obama shocked attendees by comparing a prominent piece of feminist self-help advice to “s—” that often “doesn’t work.”

Obama told the sold-out crowd that women can’t experience equality in both their professional and personal lives “at the same time,” calling the idea a “lie” and arguing that “marriage still ain’t equal, y’all.”

Then, in an unguarded moment that sent the crowd and social media ablaze, she added: “And it’s not always enough to lean in, because that s— doesn’t work all the time.”

Obama, seemingly flustered, quickly remarked, “I forgot where I was for a moment” as attendees laughed and applauded.

“I thought we were at home, y’all,” she added. “I was gettin’ real comfortable up in here. Alright, I’m back now. Sometimes that stuff doesn’t work.”

Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg popularized the “lean in” concept with her 2013 book, “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,” which argues that women should take assertive action to overcome workplace inequities and obtain leadership roles. Critics have charged that the book downplays sexism and places blame on women. Sandberg also founded the website Leanin.org.

Michelle Obama’s attack on President Trump and her dismissal of whole chunks of the electorate is surprising, but not unexpected.

The rest of the event, which featured poet Elizabeth Alexander discussing both current events and personal topics on-stage with Obama, proceeded without incident. Obama memorialized President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday, and told Alexander that “marriage is hard work.”

Concluding the event, Obama told an anecdote about a visit by children to the White House, when one child hugged the president and said he had saved her life by being caring.

“That’s why Barack and I are careful about what we say,” the former first lady said. “Except when we are in an arena full of people.”

Liberal commentator Touré, writing on Twitter, called Obama’s unusual slip-up a “cute moment” and said the moment had “overshadowed” her other remarks because society has a “fetish” for “civility over all else.”

Ten percent of proceeds from tickets at the Saturday night event — priced at $129 to $500 — are going to New York community groups.

Obama’s “Becoming,” which came out Nov. 13, is selling at a pace rarely seen for a political memoir, or any nonfiction book. Combined hardcover, e-book and audio sales in the U.S. and Canada topped 2 million copies in the first 15 days, Crown Publishing announced Friday.

By comparison, former first lady Hillary Clinton’s memoir “Living History” needed a month to sell 1 million copies. Former President George W. Bush’s “Decision Points” took several weeks to reach 2 million. Former President Bill Clinton’s “My Life” quickly sold 1 million copies but took far longer to hit 2 million.

Obama wrote in her memoir that she assumed Trump was “grandstanding” when he announced his presidential run in 2015. She expresses disbelief over how so many women would choose a “misogynist” over Hillary Clinton, “an exceptionally qualified female candidate.” She remembers how her body “buzzed with fury” after seeing the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape in the weeks prior to Election Day.

She also accuses Trump of using body language to “stalk” Clinton during an election debate. She writes of Trump following Clinton around the stage, standing nearby and “trying to diminish her presence.”

Trump’s message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in darkened print: “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

Now, that’s rich.

“Moochelle” Obama talking about someone “getting away with it”.

Irony is embarrassed.

Like her husband, President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has always played The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”

Her expensive tastes, during her time as “First Lady”, which included Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, did not exactly endear herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…

Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.

Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.

Not, in the case of our globe-trotting (on our dime) Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama. Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.

Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.

In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the First Lady what she could do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!

Most of the other First Ladies in my 60 years (as of today), such as our current one, Melania Trump, have brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

First Lady Melania Trump speaks six different languages fluently and came here on a special Visa which they call the “Einstein” Visa. Plus, she always presents herself as an asset to our nation in public.

“Moochelle”, evidently, can’t speak in public without reverting to “street” language.

Where’s the late Barbara Billingsley to translate for us, like she did in the classic comedy “Airplane”?

“It’s alright, Stewardess. I speak jive.”

2020 Election Survey Shows Trump Ahead of 2016, Dems Floating Desperation Candidates

https___static.makers.com_field_image_541655956

With President Trump succeeding in fulfilling his campaign promises during his first 18 months in office, The “Blue Wave” predicted by Political Pundits for the Midterm Elections in 2018 and the 2020 President Election is rapidly becoming a “Blue Drip”.

The Washington Examiner reports that

President Trump has chipped away at big Democratic leads in a key 2020 election survey, and top aide Stephen Miller said that internal polls show the president doing even better than in 2016 when he beat Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In the new survey from Zogby Analytics, the gap between leading Democrats including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders has tightened, though the Republican still trails considerably.

Trump, however, beats rising Democratic star Sen. Kamala Harris by three points.

“Overall, the data points to Trump making gains with his base and key groups such as NASCAR fans and Walmart shoppers. The president is also making small gains with key Democratic groups such as Millennials, Generation Z, independents and women, while his Democratic rivals are losing ground with these groups,” said the analysis of the poll, a redo of a January 2020 survey.

“This is all simultaneously happening while Republicans are making gains against Democrats regarding the congressional midterms,” it added.

The nationwide online survey of 881 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.

Since January, Biden’s lead over Trump has dropped 5 points, to 48 percent to 38 percent. Biden is doing well with some voters associated with Trump.

“President Trump struggles against Biden because Biden beats the president with his base of voters-those who frequently shop at Walmart (43 percent to 42 percent) and voters with no college education (Biden leads 44 percent to 40 percent), while Trump wins 53 percent to 39 percent with NASCAR fans. All these categories have tightened between the two candidates since January, but Biden still leads with most groups, especially important groups that are favorable to Trump,” said the poll.

The lead held by Sanders also dropped and is at 48 percent to 42 percent. Sanders is winning men and independents against Trump, said Zogby. “Sanders numbers are down slightly outside the margin of error this time around, especially with many key groups such as Millennials, Walmart shoppers and minorities,” the survey analysis explained.

Warren also saw her lead over Trump cut by three points, and is now 43 percent to 37 percent.

Unlikely 2020 candidates Oprah Winfrey and former first lady Michelle Obama also do well over Trump. Winfrey leads 53 percent to 47 percent. Obama’s lead is 48 percent to 39 percent.

Rising potential Democratic candidates, Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, struggle against Trump.

Harris loses in the new poll, 36 percent to 39 percent for Trump.

Booker is tied at 38 percent.

Top Trump aide Stephen Miller told Secrets that the administration’s internal polls are better.

“Our poll numbers are better today than they were on Election Day,” Miller told Secrets.

“In today’s country with the nonstop negativity in the media and everything else the political success that we’re having in what you’re seeing in the numbers, the generic ballot and everything else, is all enormously positive,” he added.

Oprah and “Mooch”? Seriously?

As you may or may not remember, Oprah Winfrey was very active during Barack Hussein Obama’s ascension to the Presidency of the United States, remaining a close friend and a trusted advisor to him and Mooch…err…Michelle throughout both terms.

The circle that she has traveled in and the causes which she has championed have made her a darling of the Liberal Elite on both the East and Left Coasts.

The hoi polloi fawn over her as if she is royalty. So, it really should not surprise any of us that the Democrats continue to float her name out there, even though she has denied that she wishes to seek the presidency.

And then, there’s “Mooch”…

Like her husband, Former President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has done her best to play The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gave us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

Michelle Robinson Obama was the most useless, racially divisive, and downright hateful excuse for a First Lady that this country has ever seen.

Bess Truman was Mother Teresa compared with the woman whom I affectionately refer to as “Mooch”…

Quite frankly, all of us out here in the Heartland, think she stinks on ice.

Democrats have regressed way beyond desperation to even think of nominating either Oprah Winfrey or Michelle Obama as their next Presidential Candidate.

I thought Modern American Liberals were supposed to be the “Smartest People in the Room”?

At least, that’s what THEY always claim to be.

How lucky we are, as mere 9 to 5 peons, to have our choice for the next President of the United States of America be between 2 such eminently qualified individuals as selected for us by those who view themselves as our intellectual superiors.

Why, it just takes one’s breath away, doesn’t it?

And makes you want to blow chunks.

The “Smartest People in the Room”, as they did on up until the night of November 8, 2016, remain clueless.

Michelle Obama: “Barack Was Like the Responsible Parent” …Really?

toon120217

“Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country”. Michelle Obama, February 2008

FoxNews.com reports that

Former first lady Michelle Obama got political during a chat at a women’s leadership conference Thursday, likening her husband’s presidency to having “the good parent at home” opposed to what she called the “other parent,” referring to President Trump.

Barack was like the “responsible parent — the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time,” the former first lady said at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, clearing her throat. “And now perhaps we have the other parent in the house.”

Obama suggested those who voted for Trump did so because they thought it’d be “fun.”

“We thought it’d feel fun — maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late and not follow the rules,” she continued. “And we’re going to at that point in time look at those two experiences and see how we feel.”

Earlier, the 54-year-old said her husband was “born” with patience and applauded his temperament.

“We’re at a point in time where we have to figure out who we want to be as a nation, and we’ve had two stark examples of what we can be,” Obama said. “I certainly know what direction I want to go.”

The former first lady then went on to praise Hillary Clinton, who she deemed “the best qualified candidate” in the 2016 presidential race. She blamed poor voter turnout for Clinton’s loss, urging young voters to turn out and vote their “interests” in upcoming elections.

“The question is: What’s your interest now, young people?” Obama said. “And we’ve got some clear choices to make.”

Clinton “wasn’t perfect,” Obama admitted.

“But she was way more perfect…” Obama said, pausing with a grin as some audience members laughed and applauded “…than many of the alternatives.”

Mrs. Obama…

Most Average American Adults have no need of “parenting” from a President of the United States of America.

Those of us who were fortunate enough to grow up under the tutelage of parents who possessed a moral compass, i.e., the over 75% per cent of Americans who are Christians, were raised to know right from wrong.

They performed the day in and day out duties of proper parenting, including telling us to “eat our carrots and got to bed on time”.

The allusion which you not-so-subtly made was to life under a Nanny State Central Government, one which controls the lives of Americans from cradle to grave.

Which was the kind of Federal Government which you, your husband, and all of the sycophantic legion of Modern American Liberals who licked his Stacy Adams Shoes and placed you on a pedestal tried your best to get Americans to accept and support for 8 long arduous years.

To be blunt, Marxism has failed in every country in which it has been tried. Why did you and your followers, who were supposed to be the smartest people in the room, think that you could make it work here?

As proven on November 6, 2016, you grossly overestimated your collective intelligence and underestimated the intelligence, conviction, and patriotism of average Americans living between the coasts.

You and your husband’s 8-year long impersonation of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette left a lasting impression on Average Americans. So much so, that when Hillary Clinton ran for President for no other reason than proclaiming that it was “her turn”, “the peasantry” revolted against her and her sense of entitlement.

President Trump was elected President because he spoke to Americans…not down to us.

And, as President, he has not told us to “eat our carrots”, he has instead told us to drink deeply from the wellspring of American Freedom and Opportunity.

President Trump has not treated us like “children” but, instead, he has talked to Americans as an equal about the great heritage of our Sovereign Nation and the bright future ahead of us.

So, “Mooch”, just to let you know, on behalf of other average Americans like myself, who elected President Donald J. Trump,…your opinion means squat.

So, go buy your arugula and Wagyu Steaks on your own dime.

We’re Making America Great Again.

Whether you want it to be or not.

Michelle Obama Wants to Create “Thousands of Me”. Yikes.

10917-shows-listicle-12-of-michelle-obama-s-most-epic-side-eyes12

As long as the Former First Lady has herself, she will never be alone.

BusinessInsider.com reports that

Michelle Obama is hopeful about the next generation of leaders in the US.The former first lady has been meeting many younger leaders through her work with the Obama Foundation. She says it has given her a lot of optimism about their approach to leading the country.

“They’re tired of watching us do the same old thing and expect different results,” Obama, 54, said at Klick Health’s Muse event in New York on Tuesday. “So I’m optimistic about the future. There are some bright young people out there doing some amazing things.”

Those interactions have helped to solidify her plans, which aren’t likely to involve running for office.

“This is why I’m not going to run for president,” she said. “Because I think it’s a better investment to invest in creating thousands of mes.”

Rather than having one “Michelle Obama” vying for the presidency, she hopes to help more people get into leadership positions.

“We don’t need just one — we need thousands and thousands,” Obama said.

Obama spent eight years in the White House as the first lady. The idea of swapping spots with her husband, former President Barack Obama, doesn’t appeal to her.

“As an older leader, I think an important part of leadership is stepping out of the way and making room,” Michelle Obama said.

If she were to decide to run for office, it would limit the country, she said.

“We’re not finding that new energy out there,” she said.

Thank God.

Like her husband, President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has always done her best to play The Race Card at every opportunity.

Oprah Winfrey for WHAT? Obama Regime II? You Gotta Be Kiddin’ Me.

oprahoprahoprah

You couldn’t find a group of people outside of an insane asylum who are just more out of touch with reality [than actors]. – Chuck Woolery

https://twitter.com/nbc/status/950172700625915904

Now, I realize that I’m just an old cranky cracka’ living in Dixie, but, I repeat, you gotta be kiddin’ me!

What does she even know about politics…except where to find the television cameras at a political event?

Here is a short, unauthorized biography, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org

 

Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to an unmarried teenage mother on January 29, 1954, and was raised by her maternal grandmother on a Mississippi farm until the age of 6. She was then sent to live with her mother in Milwaukee, where, from ages 9 to 13, she was repeatedly molested by male relatives and another visitor. At age 14 she gave birth to a premature baby who died shortly thereafter. Winfrey then moved to Nashville, Tennessee to live with her father and his wife. The couple provided the girl with discipline and stability, and Winfrey became an honors student in high school.

At age 17, Winfrey won the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant and was hired for an on-air job at WVOL Radio in Nashville. She also won a full scholarship to Tennessee State University, where she majored in speech communications and performing arts. After graduating, Winfrey took a job as a news anchor at Nashville’s WLAC-TV. In 1976 she became a news co-anchor at Baltimore’s WJZ-TV, where she also co-hosted her first talk show. And in January 1984, Winfrey moved to Illinois to host A.M. Chicago for WLS-TV. Less than a year later, the program was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show. It entered national syndication in 1986 and became the highest-rated talk show in television history. Also in 1986, Winfrey established Harpo Studios, a production facility in Chicago.

…Winfrey made headlines in September 2006 when she told interviewer Larry King that she hoped Barack Obama, her favorite U.S. senator, would run for president. The following month, she interviewed Obama and his wife (Michelle) and promoted the senator’s book, The Audacity of Hope, propelling it instantly to bestseller status.

In the Fall of 2007, Winfrey held a fundraiser for Obama’s presidential campaign at her California home and raised several million dollars.[1] When Obama secured the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in June 2008, Winfrey said: “I’m euphoric … And if he wants me to [campaign for him], I’m ready to go door-to-door.”

In August 2008, Winfrey attended the Democratic National Convention and likened the experience of hearing Obama speak to what it might have been like “to sit and listen to Lincoln speak or Roosevelt speak or … to understand what Martin Luther King was saying 45 years ago.”[2]

In October 2008 Winfrey hosted a second fundraiser for Obama, this time in Chicago.

Winfrey has stated that “everybody should see” former Vice President Al Gore’s 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth, which asserts that the greenhouse gases produced by fossil-fuel combustion are major causes of potentially catastrophic global warming. According to Winfrey’s Oprah.com website, Gore’s film delivers “the sobering news about a threat to our civilization’s future.” Winfrey herself owns a gas-guzzling, $42 million private jet, of which she once said: “Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.”

On the subject of immigration reform, Winfrey has called for “a clear path-to-citizenship for the 12 million undocumented immigrants who reside in this country.” She has also voiced her belief that government has a duty to give low-income people “access to healthy food and a roof over the heads and a strong public education.”

In August 2013, soon after a “white Hispanic” neighborhood-watch captain named George Zimmerman had been acquitted of manslaughter charges connected to a high-profile 2012 altercation in which he had shot and killed a black teenager named Trayvon Martin, Winfrey said: “To me, it’s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved.” She also stated: “Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you: In my mind, same thing.” Till, whose death helped galvanize the early civil-rights movement, was a 14-year-old black teen who in 1955 was kidnapped by two white men in Mississippi who beat him, gouged out one of his eyes, shot him in the head, and dumped his body into the Tallahatchie River.

There’s more, but for the sake of brevity…and our mutual sanity, I’ll leave it up to your judgment whether you wish to read any additional information about her or not.

As you may or may not remember, Oprah was very active during Barack Hussein Obama’s ascension to the Presidency of the United States, remaining a close friend and a trusted advisor to him and Mooch…err…Michelle throughout both terms.

The circle that she has traveled in and the causes which she has championed have made her a darling of the Liberal Elite on both the East and Left Coasts.

The hoi polloi fawn over her as if she is royalty, so, it really should not surprise any of us that NBC/Comcast floated this trial balloon on Twitter, echoing a consistent fervently whispered hope which has been communicated among those same “special” travelers.

How lucky we are, as mere 9 to 5 peons to have our next president selected for us by those who view themselves as our intellectual superiors.

Why, it just takes one’s breath away, doesn’t it?

And makes you want to blow chunks.

Now, I have written numerous articles regarding the self-righteousness of the Hollywood and New York Showbiz Elite. to paraphrase the great Val Kilmer (who is battling throat cancer, God bless him) as Doc Holliday in “Tombstone”,

Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Have the dancing monkeys in Tinseltown and the Big Apple not figured out that the America People revolted against their political philosophy and their opinions as to how we should live our lives on November 8, 2016?

Have they not gotten a clue, yet?

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and comport themselves like the “stars” of the past, who volunteered for service in World War II , entertained troops with the U.S.O, or staged NON-POLITICAL Fundraisers after natural disasters.

These self-proclaimed “activist” actors, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

And now, they want us to vote in one of their number as the next President of the United States of America.

Will she give us all new cars like she did her audience?

Just kidding.

I would rather walk.

The Last Day

On January 21st, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama, Former Community Organizer and Former United States Senator from the state of Illinois, was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America.

I can remember the moment as if it were yesterday.

That was the apex of the Obama Presidency….a monument to failure which was rebuked on November 8th, 2016, when Americans said “enough is “enough”.

Americans should have received a clue as to the way that the next eight years were going to be, when Obama’s first act was to fund abortions all around the world.

Thus began the downhill slide away from American Exceptionalism and toward the abysmal mediocrity of a Socialism-inspired Nanny State Government under which we found ourselves hurtling downhill at breakneck speed before Donald J. Trump was elected president.
This journey, from the plateau of being the greatest nation on the face of the Earth into the abyss of mediocrity and false promises with Obama leading the way and his precious snowflakes following like a bunch of lemmings not knowing where they were headed but being driven by their very nature, promised to do what America’s enemies had never been able to do in our history, that is, turn The Shining City Upon the Hill into a Third World Barrio.

Obama’s foreign and domestic policies both reeked of purposeful obtuseness designed to make our citizens dependent on a “benevolent” Uncle Sugar and to alienate our allies and embolden our enemies.

Just like his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act, as it was explained to us by the then-Speaker of the House, the Democratic Representative from the state of California, Nancy Pelosi, Americans had to elect Barack Hussein Obama as President before we knew what was in him.

And, just like Obamacare almost ruined the greatest Healthcare System on the Face of the Earth, Obama himself almost ruined the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

Just like a high school kid buying a junker of a car from friend, on Election Day 2008, Americans received a high-maintenance lemon.

And just like the kid who bought that lemon, we have been paying out the nose ever since.

Since Barack Hussein Obama took office, we have been involved in several armed conflicts, more than any other president before him.

And, while he was deploying our Brightest and Best all over the globe, he was using them for the purpose of social engineering, instead of respecting them as the fighting men and women that they are.

Obama eventually moved from just experimenting with “social engineering” within our military, to attempting to change the traditional morality and value system of our country at large.

In other words, instead of accomplishing something commendable, such as sending a man to walk on the Moon, Obama will be remembered as the president who enabled men to go into the ladies restroom.

On a related subject, as he was criticizing and diminishing the role of Christian Americans in the day-to-day existence of our country, he sure as heck never missed a Ramadan dinner.

I’m just sayin’…

The First Lady, Michelle Obama, was busy as well.

She took it upon herself to attempt to tell Americans how we should be feeding our children and grandchildren, designing a school lunch menu to be distributed to the Department of Education, who, in turn, had schools serve lunches which did not even contain enough calories to power the young bodies of American schoolchildren for the entire school day.

Her school lunch program was a part of her fight against child obesity. The other part of the plan was an exercise initiative for school and home, euphemistically titled “Let’s Move!”

An initiative made ironic by the fact that it takes its creator two trips to haul… well, you know.

But, I digress..

The Holy Bible, in the Book of Proverbs, contained in the Old Testament, tells us that “Pride goeth before a fall”.

There has been no greater example in American History than that of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

His uncontrolled narcissism persuaded him time and time again that his personal opinions were held by the majority of the American people.

Take for example, his views on law enforcement and race relations.

Part of his job as President of the United States was to support our laws and to support those on the ground who enforce those laws every day.

When there were perceived racial issues between lawbreakers and Municipal Police Departments, 10 times out of 10, Obama came down on the side of the lawbreakers, instead of the police.

Obama not only let America’s Municipal Police Departments down, he let down the American people, as the racial division in our country is wider on this, his last day, than it was on his first day as president.

Our political ideologies moved further apart as well, as Liberals, buoyed by having one of their own in the White House, moved further to the Left Side of the Political Spectrum, taking the Democratic Party with them.

And, in that spirit, the Democratic Party nominated a Far-Left Ideologue in Hillary Clinton for their choice as the next President of the United States.

However, even after cloaking herself in a mask of Political Moderation, her true nature revealed itself and the American people rejected her in spite of the best efforts of the Main Stream Media, who were acting as the Democratic Party’s Propaganda Machine.

The thought of another 4 years under the failed policies of Barack Hussein Obama, being delivered to us in the shrill voice and demeanor of Hillary Clinton, was too much for average Americans to bear.

Standing up on our hind legs, we elected American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump, who mercifully will be inaugurated tomorrow

Despite his best efforts to radically change America into just another country, Barack Hussein Obama found out that the strength of America does not come from our political parties, nor from the area known as the Beltway which surrounds and includes the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C.

Rather, America’s strength comes from the faith, which anchors the daily struggles of average Americans, who, relying on our Creator, the lessons which we learned from our family, including our parents, our own common sense, and the sweat of our brow, are living our lives trying to provide a better life for our children and grandchildren, while being grateful for this Sovereign Nation which God and our Founders bequeathed to us.

The 44th President of the United States of America never understood this.

The 45th President of the United States of America does.

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

It will be Morning in America.

And, it will be time to Make America Great Again.

Until He Comes,

Michelle Obama Thinks America is Now Not Having “Hope”. Perhaps She Confuses the Word “Mooch” With “Hope”?

Everything that is done in the world is done by hope. – Martin Luther

Foxnews.com reports that

First lady Michelle Obama’s suggestion that the United States has lost hope now that Donald Trump has becoming president after eight years of husband President Obama bringing “hope and change” to Americans was met Saturday with some pushback.

Michelle Obama says there is no hope,” Trump, the Republican president-elect, said at a rally in Alabama. “I assume she was talking about the past not the future. I honestly believe she meant that statement differently than the way it came out.”

Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker said before Trump spoke at the rally: “Yes, Michelle, we have hope again.” 

Obama said in an excerpt of her final White House interview, conducted by Oprah Winfrey: “We feel the difference now. … Now we’re feeling like what not having hope feels like. … What do you do if you don’t have hope, Oprah?”

The full interview is scheduled to air Monday on CBS-TV.

President Obama was a first-term Illinois Democratic senator when he won the White House race in 2008 with a captivating message of hope and change and became the country’s first black president.

“Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice slogan to get votes,” the first lady said in the CBS interview. “He and I and so many believe: What else do you have if you don’t have hope?”  

The first lady during her time in the White House made top priorities of empowering young women and promoting healthy eating habits.

She argued in the interview that children are the ones who most need hope.

And to try to explain how her husband gave Americans hope, she said he was like the soothing parent who didn’t overreact when a child bumps his or her head on a table.

“Barack has been that for the nation,” the first lady said.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, once said about outgoing (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama that

I think the essence of hope and change, I think the hope was not so much hope for the country’s future economically, hope for people’s personal economic success.  I think the hope was that if this country made the statement, a majority white country electing an African-American president, that alone would serve a significant role, play a significant role and cause there to be massive progress toward eliminating, or not eliminating, but reducing the racial strife in this country, and the exact opposite has happened.

Rush was right.

Like her husband, President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has done her best to play The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches.  David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gives us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:

The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”

Her expensive tastes, during his time as “First Lady”, which include Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, have not exactly endeared herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…

Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.

Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.

Not, in the case of our globe-trotting (on our dime) soon-to-be Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama.  Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.

Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.

In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the First Lady what she can do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!

Most of the other First Ladies in my 58 years have brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

Michelle Robinson Obama is the most useless, racially divisive, and downright hateful excuse for a First Lady that this country has ever seen.

Bess Truman was Mother Teresa compared with the woman whom I affectionately refer to as “Mooch”…

Quite frankly, all of us out here in the Heartland, think she stinks on ice.

For Michelle Obama to drop her carefully concealed mask of racial tolerance this late in the game, with still time left in her husband’s presidency, shows how little regard she has, not only for the decorum of her position, but, for the well-being of America and her citizens, both black and white.

She’s classless.

That being said, here is a little ditty I wrote a while back, in “honor” of the most beloved mate of a national leader since Eva Braun:

50 Ways to Get Your Mooch On (to the tune of “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon)

A young lady came up to

The First Lady

She said, “Like you I want to

get everything free”

‘Chelle said, “You’ve come to the right

person, baby”

I’ll teach you fifty ways

To get your “mooch” on

She said it’s easy if you put

your mind to it

By gaming the system 

you can get a lot of sh#t.

In Presidential Politics,

Taxpayers’ money you will get

And, if you’re a Democrat

if you’re caught, they will acquit

There are Fifty ways to get your ‘mooch’ on

[CHORUS:]

Go vay-cay in Spain, Jane

Get you some pearls, girl

Chow down on Wagyu,Sue

Pay attention to me

Just listen to ‘Chelle, Nell

You don’t need a brain cell

Marry The Prez, honey

And get it for free

She said I hope my rap

Is getting through to you

I am laying it out very plainly

These things that you should do

The girl said,” I am diggin’ this,

But, would please tell me some more 50 Ways”?

‘Chelle said. “Please take everything I’m telling you

and place it in your heart

Marrying a politician is

a great place to start”

And, then ‘Chelle left her

And she caught on to the game

‘Chelle did have 50 ways to get her “mooch” on

50 Ways to get her “mooch” on

CHORUS:

Go vay-cay in Spain, Jane

Get you some pearls, girl

Chow down on Wagyu,Sue

Pay attention to me

Just listen to ‘Chelle, Nell

You don’t need a brain cell

Marry The Prez, honey

And get it for free.

With a little over a month left before “Mooch” leaves her Palatial Digs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Console yourselves that after President-elect Trump takes the Oath of Office on January 20, 2017, we will all be singing the Country song made famous years ago by the great performer, Roy Clark….

Thank God and Greyhound She’s Gone.

Until He Comes,
