Michelle Obama 'particularly proud of my husband'
Daily Herald ^ | May 10, 2008 | David Beery

Posted on 05/10/2008 3:02:29 PM PDT by Baladas

Michelle Obama, speaking as her husband may have the Democratic presidential nomination within his grasp, told a Chicago luncheon crowd Friday that she's more convinced than ever he is ready for the office.

"I'm particularly proud of my husband, who has handled himself with dignity and with strength and with grace," Obama said of the long campaign, as she addressed about 1,800 people, mostly women, at McCormick Place.

Obama, offering brief remarks before featured speaker Valerie Plame Wilson took the podium, hit the main talking points of her husband's campaign.

Introduced by U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, the luncheon's sponsor, as "the next first lady of the United States," Obama described roundtable discussions with women that she has hosted as she's campaigned across the country. Obama said she has heard repeatedly from women worried about inadequate health care and stagnant wages in the face of rising prices for food, fuel and other items.

And it looks like she's found a new (?) political ally in Valerie Plame, heh.

As if any of them know anything about either dignity or grace - please keep this woman talking.

"I'm particularly proud of my husband...

But not of the country that provided her with degrees from Princeton and Harvard and provides her with a $300K/yr salary.

As if it wasn’t already obvious that Mr. and Mrs. Plame were just political operatives all along. Joe Plame’s trip was just meant to be a hit job and not a fact-finding mission.

Proud of her leftist, Marxist husband, ashamed of the greatest country on earth.

“Is she proud of the rest of us now?”

Sure. ‘Typical White Person’ remark. Have you learned NOTHING at her knee? *SMIRK* :)

Can’t stand her. I’d almost rather have Teresa Heinz 57 Kerry drunkenly toddling around the White House, breaking OUR crockery and historical artifacts. (Not really.)

Valerie Plame is white - she's probably just bitterly clinging to her moment of fame and Marxism.

Come to think of it Valerie and Michelle have a lot in common, both think they are victims, both are enjoying fame for no apparent reason, both are marxists, both hold their husbands leash with a tight grip, both have mentally challenged husbands, both have husbands that get paid a lot and have no results, and both hate America.

And when one that an empty suit couldn't empty itself.

Well, the best this thread could offer is some pic's of "the blond bimbo", at least!

Could Joe Plame have been involved in hiding Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction? He definately lied when he said that Saddam wasn’t constructing WMDs. Those WMDs must be somewhere, but where? Iran? Syria? Pakistan? Saudi Arabia? Somalia? Egypt?

I just hope we can find Saddam’s WMDs and destroy them before Bush leaves office. And I pray Osama bin Laden will be found and brought to justice (or assassinated) before the next president is sworn in. Those two acts alone will leave GW Bush with a splendid legacy as president.

I watched her in an interview with her and her husband and she literally hijacked the interview from him. She kept talking, always referring to the Campaign as “Our” Campaign, spoke for the REAL candidate on a number of topics, all of this despite Obama’s clear impatience and displeasure with her antics.

All in all, she came across as a very angry, domineering Black Person. From my perspective worse than his Pastor in terms of my dislike.

I have this on my car up here in Massachusetts. I suspect the Libs don't get it, since I haven't been flipped off yet.

Michelle Obama 'particularly proud of my husband'

Is this the first time in her life that she's been proud of her husband too? Oh, wait, I forgot. She was particularly proud of him when she got her $200K a year raise for bringing a $1 million dollar earmark to the hospital where she works.

THAT is something that should be said over and over and over again, until EVERYONE in America sees him for what he is. A lying politician who does NOT want change. It's business as usual for him.

She's proud of her husband...but not of America.

That's because she knows her husband is in tune with her, Wright's, Farakahns, Ayers, and others anjectly anti-American feelings.

Barack, who is Hussein, Obama, is the absolute apex of the domestic enemy, subversive, anti-American movement in this country.

Polished in a prepared speech, charismatic in his presentation, nonetheless, underneath it all lies a smoldering cauldron of marxism, bigotry, and black liberation theology that is the enemy of America and its traditional values.

THE AUDACITY OF TRUTH - BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY AND OBAMA'S CHURCH

THE AUDACITY OF TRUTH - BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

We’re polar opposites Michelle. I’m extremely proud of my country and totally embarrassed of your husband.

... women worried about inadequate health care and stagnant wages in the face of rising prices for food, fuel and other items.

The root cause of which, for the most part, is Democrats. Electing more dems to fix the very problems they caused has to be the definition of insanity.

No way can we allow another lawyer to be first lady.
There is too much ambition there. Next thing she’ll want to be a Senator and then President.
