Michelle Obama is Fair Game
Los Angeles Times ^ | May 27, 2008 | Jonah Goldberg

Posted on 05/27/2008 6:31:18 AM PDT by moderatewolverine

'Lay off my wife."

So says Barack Obama about his controversial spouse, Michelle.

The Democratic candidate for the presidential nomination has a grating tendency to dismiss any inconvenient fact as a "distraction" and to label every stinging criticism as "divisive." So even if he didn't have a husband's natural desire to defend his wife, he'd still probably denounce criticism of Michelle as beyond the pale.

Obama's comments came in the wake of a Tennessee GOP ad this month calling new attention to Michelle Obama's remark in February that she'd never in her adult life been "really proud" of America until the nation embraced her husband's hope-and-change campaign.

"If they think that they're going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful," Obama said on ABC's "Good Morning America" last week, "because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family."

Again, the Illinois senator's desire to protect his wife from criticism shows his heart's in the right place. The question is, where is his head?

codewords for "RACIST!"

The Obama campaign boils down to "If you don't support me, you're a racist".

osamabama and his bigoted ho wife are the biggest anti-American, POS racists that I have ever heard of running for office. He makes the “old” George Wallace look like Mahatma Gandhi.

Should read: “Michelle Obama is Fair Game for Orthodontists.”

She could eat corn through a picket fence with those bucked teeth.

Time for a reality check, Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas:

1. Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas, when you run for the highest office in America, you don’t get to set the tone of the discussions and set the limits about what is said about you, while you have an open field to say any lies you want to say about your opponents .

2. When you send your millionaire, loud mouthed, Black racist, spoiled America Hating B$tch of a wife out to knock America, the other candidates and to campaign for you. She becomes a legitimate target of how America feels about her and her bitter comments about America.

3. Last but not least, when you say this bs about leaving your Bitter wife out of the campaign, there must be something really bad that she has done. So are you trying to preempt the disclosure of what else she has done, said or worse?

Put some ice on it and stop your whining, you thin skinned elitist bastard!

Or should we say: " Stop your Whining, you thin skinned Elitist Liberal Sweetie Bastard?

I find it unacceptable that an American hating, closet Muslim, Affirmative Action recipient, empty suit would be this close to the presidency of the greatest nation in the world.

Michelle Obama is Fair Game

She certainly is and on that subject, from this link....

Obama's Auchi Problem

Stuart Levine's testimony on Monday didn't answer that question, but no matter. Levine testified that both Barack and Michelle Obama attended a reception Rezko held at his Wilmette home for Auchi. "News reports from the courtroom said Mr. Rezko wanted to impress Mr. Auchi, who ultimately poured nearly $170 million into the real estate venture," the New York Times reports.

PC liberals don’t want to compete in the real world.

They want their own rules giving them the freedom to do whatever with no judgement while we are entangled with their freedom hating PC rules for us.
