Now here's a woman who understands the average American, eh?

~snip~

Mrs. Obama also bemoaned the amount of money she has to spend — nearly one-third of the median household income in Zanesville — on piano, dance, and other lessons for her two children.

She talks about people who end up taking years and years, until middle age, to pay off their debts.

I had student loans. It didn't take that long to pay them off. But then, I actually worked at paying them off. I didn't try to avoid it.

'How on earth are you managing it, how are you keeping it all together?'

Well, the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ we got from the damn corporate America (the land I was only proud of once) helps a bit. But I advise against getting that $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

What a plan! I guess it's "change".

Michelle need not worry, it’s a non-issue.

If Michelle is elected co-president, the coporations would be driven from our shores with tax policy.

New Barrack theme song:

(To the tune of “Candyman”.)

Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it in dew
Cover it in chocolate
and a miracle or two?

The Obamaman
The Obamaman can
The Obamaman can cause he mixes it with love and makes manure taste good

Who can take a rainbow
Wrap it is a sigh
Soak it in the sun
and make a strawberry lemon pie?

Children: The Obamaman?

The Obamaman
The Obamaman can
The Obamaman can cause he mixes it with love and makes manure taste good

Obamaman makes
Everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Who can take tomorrow
Dip it in a dream
Seperate the sorrow
And collect up all the cream?

Obamaman

Adult Children:Obamaman can!

(There is an audio of this, but I haven’t been able to locate it.)

The are, quite simply “The Black Clintons”.
All the patterns are the same.
Except that now, “IT’S THEIR TURN”
Wonder what Toni Morrison would say about her “First Black President” now being usurped by a “real” Black presidential possibility?
The supreme poetic justice in all of this is that the Clintons paved the way for all of this, (their political burial) while being too stupid to see it coming.

It seems that she never took an economics course at Princeton.

She is TRULY the black Teresa Heinz Kerry.

Gee Michelle, you chose to go to Princeton and Harvard. That costs. Poor you. You could have gone to a state university and a state law school. It wouldn’t have been as prestigious, but you still would have been an attorney, made a really good living and not had the big student loans. You chose the Rolls Royce and had to pay for it. I’m not going to shed one tear for you. And to whine to women who work just to put food on the table about the cost of piano and dance lessons for your privileged children is just unreal. But, as Marie Antionette said, “They have no bread? Well, let them eat cake.”

Don't go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse. Those are the careers that we need, and weÂ’re encouraging our young people to do that.
Somebody please tell this woman that parasites need a host…

I’m sorry, I didn’t hear who put that baseball bat to her head and forced her to go to such expensive universities?

I choose not to vote for a “power couple” instead of a president. This “two for the price of one” stuff makes me as angry now as it did when the clintons pulled it.

OMG, she's priceless! I hope the Obama campaign keeps her front and center. She's much more of a loose cannon than Therese Heinz Kerry.

***As she has many times in the past, Mrs. Obama complains about the lasting burden of student loans dating from her days at Princeton and Harvard Law School. She talks about people who end up taking years and years, until middle age, to pay off their debts.***

What a whiner! She knew when she got the loan she would have to pay it back. If she had made it a priority, she could have paid it off in just a few years. I wonder if the reason why it took so long is that she let it slide and accrued a huge amount of interest and penalties? If it hadn’t been for Barrack’s “magic bean book deal,” she’d be just another deadbeat. Michelle “Deadbeat” Obama.

I have no patience with people who whine over student loans. There is no more valuable an investment than education. The 200k someone would pay to go to Princeton and Harvard Law School is a pittance compared to what such a graduate could earn if money is what matters to him or her. Oscar Wilde defined a cynic as someone “who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing”.

"Don’t go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. "

I think they are going to have to borrow whatever closet Hillary has been using to shut Bill up in to shut this cretin up if Barack HUSSEIN Obama hopes to win in November.
