Skip to comments.She’s Not Buttering Him Up (MoDo Takes on B Obama Without Referring to His Ears)
Posted on 04/26/2007 4:44:21 AM PDT by shrinkermd
.. I wince a bit when Michelle Obama chides her husband as a mere mortal a comic routine that rests on the presumption that we see him as a god.
The tweaking takes place at fundraisers, where Michelle wants to lift the veil on their home life a bit and give the folks their moneys worth...
Michelle, Wife's View of BO: ...And then theres the Barack Obama that lives with me in my house, and that guys a little less impressive. For some reason this guy still cant manage to put the butter up when he makes toast, secure the bread so that it doesnt get stale, and his 5-year-old is still better at making the bed than he is...
...The Chicago Tribune profile of Baracks Rock on Sunday noted that her career had caused her husband discomfort: Critics have pointed out that her income has risen along with her husbands political ascent. She sits on the board of a food company that supplies Wal-Mart, which Sen. Obama has denounced for its labor practices.
...In order to get a bigger yard for their new house on Chicagos South Side in 2005, the Obamas got into what the senator now confesses was a boneheaded real estate arrangement with a sleazy political dealmaker named Tony Rezko, who has been indicted on influence-peddling charges.
...On Monday, The Chicago Sun-Times reported more shady Rezko news: Obama, who has worked as a lawyer and a legislator to improve living conditions for the poor, took campaign donations from Rezko even as Rezkos low-income housing empire was collapsing, leaving many African-American families in buildings riddled with problems, from a lack of heat to no lack of drug dealers and squatters.
Mr. Obama riposted that it wasnt brought to my attention.

Notwithstanding this, she has a sly, wicked but intelligent way of pointing out the foibles of the high and mighty. Besides that she has mastered the English language which many of her detractors have not.
“For some reason this guy still cant manage to put the butter up when he makes toast, secure the bread so that it doesnt get stale, and his 5-year-old is still better at making the bed than he is...”
Well, that does it for me. I’m going to have to vote GOP.
Sounds like the Clintonistas are getting nervous about Obama, huh? I don’t know if the limosine liberals can vote for a black candidate. He’s supposed to be working on the plantation, not running it.
I agree - Thank you you for pointing that out.
Rules, people, rules. We must follow the rules or we are no better than Democrats.
And the only reason for any MoDo posting is CZJ photos!
I sure do like that second picture. And why is it posted here, she is not in the article, not that I mind.
Although I’ve always enoyed viewing the threads - I never understood the connection. Thanks for the info.
As long as they're not named Clinton.
Has she mastered "the elements of style"? Perhaps.
However, back in the days when I got the New York Times and actually read her on a semi-regular basis, I found her columns to be rather juvenile. More often than not, she was straining to include some type of "hip" reference or analogy.
She's as tiresome as she is biased.
Actually she got a Pulitzer for taking on Clinton.
Michael Douglas dumped MoDo for Ms. Zeta-Jones.
LMAO... yeah, for damage-control during his impeachment.
You may have noticed that Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution won this year's Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary. I might not have noticed it myself, except that a waggish friend sent me an email on the day of the announcement, reminding me of the last time Cynthia Tucker, the Pulitzer Prize, and I had crossed paths.
But first, as we say, two caveats. The first is to declare that I'm pleased Cynthia Tucker won the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary. The second caveat is more complicated, but may be boiled down to one simple proposition that most casual observers would consider obvious: The Pulitzer Prizes are a singularly corrupt institution, administered by Columbia University and the management of the New York Times largely for the benefit of the New York Times and a limited number of favored publications and personalities. Any citizen who thinks that the annual distribution of awards has something to do with quality probably believes that the Oscar for Best Picture goes to the most distinguished film of the year. If you're a connoisseur of unrestrained self-praise, may I recommend the citations when the Times awards itself the Pulitzer Gold Medal for Public Service.
Does anyone detect a note of cynicism, perhaps even biliousness, in my tone? Well, maybe. For the sad fact is that once upon a time I was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Distinguished Commentary, and (so I was informed) considered the jury's favorite for the honor. But because the Washington Post ...
From the current Weekly Standard, by Philip Terzian. Link here:
Cynthia Tucker won it for gosh' sake!!!!!!
"The 25-year-old says she is eager to get on with her life. But does she still dream that her life will include an ex-President named Bill?
I just hope she is not over at the Watergate,
flipping through designer swatches for the Clinton Presidential Library.
After the President's prime-time confession, the news media were abuzz about whether Mr. Clinton could repair his damaged relationships with his wife and daughter.
Suddenly, That Woman stamped her feet. Like the Glenn Close character in "Fatal Attraction," Monica Lewinsky issued a chilling ultimatum to the man who jilted her: I will not be ignored.
She let it be known that she was wounded that the President had failed to apologize to her and had dismissed their grand, 18-month romance, their shared passion for books and laughs, as trivial -- a mere mechanism for relieving Oval Office tension.
Mr. Clinton rejected a more contrite version of the speech written by Bob Shrum -- nicknamed the "Shoot Me" draft at the White House -- that contained an apology to "Monica Lewinsky and her family." Instead, with some brass-knuckle guidance from Hillary, he embraced his wife and daughter as "the two people I love most," while swatting Monica away as "inappropriate."
He portrayed himself, insultingly, as a passive participant in their trysts. What she called true love, he called "legally accurate."
Monica got cranky and complained about all the positive press and public sympathy heaped on her rival, Saint Hillary, while she was being portrayed as a vixen.
She had lied to protect her beloved. And she had believed, from hints he had dropped, that there might not be a Hillary in their future.
More in anger than hope, Monica returned to the grand jury and made it clear she was not simply servicing the President. The pleasuring, she insisted, contradicting his account, was mutual. Their relationship was not cheap. It was way unique. The...
Will someone please resurrect one of those old Lifeboy Radio commercials, the ones featuring "B.O." -- meaning Body Odor -- sounding like a two-note fog horn as in Bee Oooooooooooooo.
They made Americans into daily bath-ers ... and sold tons of soap.
Did MoDo remember B.O.?
