Skip to comments.Michelle Obama absent from 9/11 ceremony to be home with girls for 1st week of school. But...
Posted on 09/11/2008 11:33:54 PM PDT by IDRATHERNOT
Conspiciously absent from September 11th memorial service, the Obama campaign claimed Michelle Obama was home with her children for the 1st week of school. However, on Sep. 10th, she spent most of the day at a "Working Mothers" roundtable in Fishers, Indiana (a 3.5 hour drive from Chicago).
FISHERS, Ind. More evidence Indiana is in play this presidential election year: the Obama campaign focused on the state again Wednesday. This time it was Michelle Obama, right in the heart of Republican territory.
But what about the Feminist “Supermom” who the left keeps saying can do it all?? Why isn’t she putting her little “burdens” with the state and working? I guess not everyone can live up to Sarah Palin’s example.
Is there ANYTHING genuine about the Obamas? Other than condescending superiority?
After what she’s said about America, she can’t show her face when everyone else is expressing their love for America.
After you hit all the toll roads around Chicago it's more like 4.5...and if you hit any part of rush hour just figure on half a day going one way.
don’t you know? Democrats now believe all women should be in the kitchen baking cookies and give their man a beer.
“After what shes said about America, she cant show her face when everyone else is expressing their love for America.”
-Forget about the pig kiddies...if you ask me, this is the gaffe of the week...think about it...”for the first time in my life, I’m proud to be an American”...well what about on September 11th, 2001? What were you that day? Rooting for the hijackers? And where were you today? Cindy McCain was at Ground Zero...Laura Bush was at the Pentagon...where was Michelle? I think her absense was DOWNRIGHT MEAN!!!
HAHAHA...they would probably say something like that about SARAH PALIN. Someone who can get her work done deal with kids and look good doing it! Makes bunch of Feminists look bad all over....Well ok femists didn’t need SARAH to do that.
noticed it right off too that she was missing, I figured when she saw the replays and saw Cindy she was probably throwing things!
Technically it was ‘proud of my country’ and I also thought the same thing as you stated about 9/11.
McCain landslide coming!
I should write an essay about the Democrat’s attitudes on Sarah Palin. It would be indicative of what I would call the Auntie Tomithia syndrome, much like the female version of an “Uncle Tom”. And I am loving it.
It is all about power and politics to them. They can’t see how they are hurting their causes with Feminists because they all believe that Palin isn’t a real woman anyhow, especially because of her politics. Ari you are right.
The new platform of the Democrat Party is “strong independent Republican woman running for office who is part of a big family?” “Why can’t she take care of her kids instead?”
Of course to Democrats an independent woman is one who isn’t bothered by such trivialities as men or anybody with facial hair. Perhaps if Palin had gone bald, burned bras and used code words like “Patriarchy” and “Right to Choose” they would accept her. Too bad, a woman who is more of the feminist icon than Hillary Clinton and she is told to drop out and take care of her kid with down syndrome because she is an “incestuous redneck”(codename meaning: Strong woman who can protect her husband from harm and indepedent enough to go hunting for her own food).
I’m having trouble understanding where you are coming up with this line of questioning in regards to Mrs. Obama. If we are not happy about them making allegations in regards to Sarah Palin not being at home with her kids, then why is it OK to make the same allegation regarding Mrs. Obama when she isn’t even running? Maybe I’m just tired, and worn out from figuring out my computer, but I’m not seeing it... Sorry.
She probably couldn’t bring herself to honor the dead. She probably believes it was an inside job and an excuse to attack Musliims.
Think Gary and university voter fraud.
Indiana is like New Jersey. It’s flirting, but it aint switching.
Diss, diss, diss. I have never seen such a blatant absence in a potential first lady. I think Michelle is a disrespectful angry lady and doesn't have what it takes to be a first lady. She should stay home with her girls permanently as she clearly can't handle the job of first lady. She also has horrible instincts and does not have the personality type for such a job. Maybe she is angry no one really liked her at the DNC. You could just see her attitude towards nearly everyone but her Barack.
Also Barack is mismatched for the job of president. What did he do pin the tail on the donkey career choice? He is more fitting someone that can blah, blah, blah all day. Maybe a professor? He also seems quite good at following the party line and even pushing it further left in the Senate. So he probably might have a few days there as well.
The most liberal Senator. Hard to imagine the American people would want this man without the personality type for it--for president.
I understand now, thanks for taking the time to clear that up. I appreciate it! :-)
If you can find the answer to where they were on the 9-11, inquiring minds want to know.
THAT looks like Jackie Kennedy Onassis?
I think not.
they should have put some lipstick on her and ... er ....
you know ...
Maybe she was sick or something! I’m no fan of Michelle. But I don’t care whether she shows up or not.
My question would be Michelle if you and Obama think AMERICA is such a HATE filled, Racist, Rotten, and Horrible country why do you want to live and raise your children here?
Because without the willing Dems and the Chicago machine in a sane world he couldn’t be elected to run a small town in Alaska.
SARAH PALIN came to power through hard work, smarts, and perserverence OBAMA not a courrupt political orginization that runins any opponent you’ve had.
You have never even run against a real opponent. Or work for a positiion. Be smarter, tougher, and with more DETERMINATION.
For all the things you say She doesn’t have she knows she EARNED her terms in OFFICE. You coasted because of who you knew and your skin colur. How does that make you feel next to SARAH PALIN?
About an inch tall right! Your big Harvard diploma doesn’t impress in FLY over country like in the NE with all your BUDDIES. No sir we look for..
People who tell the truth, don’t read speached to us, but like SARAH give a speach and be ENTHUSIASTIC about your ideas.
How they can help people not offer a hand out. Most people I know would be embarresed to be you not knowing if you are good enough because you never were tested.
Sarah has and mabey for a short time but got herself elcted to two offices and pickd as a VP canidate.
Without your money, political contacts, and using the Race Card see if you could go to small town Alaska and get elected to an office.
I bet you couldn’t win a seat on an advisory board for the SewerCommision or some such position. No You have never gotten anything because you were the best person for the job.
Just right place right time right colour. That’s all. Try one of your speached with no camera effects, props, or teleprompter and see if you can come off half as well as SARAH.
You can’t you’re all gimicks and stunts kept going by your messiah myth helped by the willing media. You can’t do anything on your own can you sir?
I wonder how many aids he requires to cleam the HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS’s backside for him? This punk is not only inexperienced but helpless!
Without an entire cast and crew writers political hitmen a chicago political machine, Media you can’t come off as elequent or charismatic.
Crowds that are warmed up and people that faint on cue..GEE whiz MR Barry is this a Political Campaign or a hollywood movie? So do you have a stuntman, a double what does it take to make you look good.
Because SAHAH seems able to pull of professional and lady like with ease. What’s next some CGI effects the Green Sreen so you can appear to “Visit” the Troops you don’t like in IRAQ.
These men and women might not like you much either they don’t whine they get a job done completed then pull out of a war zone.
They don’t run scared first sign of trouble barry that’s the French. They WANT to do a good job because they know what they can do if given the chance..the surge.
They are warriors who are in the US MILITARY because they had determination. You have none of this.
I can’t think of one qualitly you have that even gives you the right to think about attempting to run for the OFFICE OF the PRESIDENCY.
You sir are not WORTHY to be the leader of the Free World. Sorry will give up in the face of any danger are you going to cry and get in the fetal position when PUtin playes rough? OR IRAN?
Things might very well get sticky in the next few years and some HARD TOUGH CHOICES have to be made your are leader. You have to come up with the ANSWER in a crisis make the final ok no speech writer or staffer can save you.
I don’t want to think about you trying to negotiate a truce with say RUSSIA while diarming the USA. Your ignorance will end up costing lives and I don’t want to do that.
Put American Citizens lives in danger or the MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN for your ego. So WHEN the curtain gets pulled back and we see the SCARED little man what are you going to say.
SARAH PALIN could make a tough decision she’s face many running a state. John McCain is so over qualified compared to you it’s embarresing. Life expeiernce achievments.
Yuo can only win with an October surprise style hit piece on McCain/Palin or both. If it hasn’t come out by now I don’t think the old hail mary play will work barry.
So just stop embarresing yourself and acting like you belong. You are not ready for a leadership position yet. Go get a couple years experince as the Manager of MCDonalds and that would be some improvement!!! At least you woud be in charge of something.. NO SALE!! LOL
O’reilly had a clip of her dancing with Ellen (was that a rerun)?
LIABILITY, I am sure you can. I guess their campaign has come to realize that Americans do not want angry, entitled, black anti-American women as their first lady.
Nope, she was doing Ellen’s show I think it was Tuesday. It was reported on the news shows as well.
She ... was never ... really ... proud ... of this country ... anyways.
Can you imagine her as “first lady”? Doesn’t even have the decency to show up at the most tragic event on American soil.
But then, her favorite preacher was happy on 9/11 and said America deserved the attacks.
Sarah Palin didn’t attend a chuch where the pastor hated America and said America deserved 9/11. And he also hated the Jews, paralleling the Saudi who tried to give $10 million to NYC while blaming the Jooooooooos.
She also didn’t say she wasn’t proud of her country ever until Obama got popularity.
That’s where we’re coming from on this.
She was also in Cincy on the 10th to address the Ba[tist convention.
Her claim was that she was staying home with the kids for their 1st week of school and could not attend 9/11 memorial serice.
...she found time to spend the day in Indiana at a campaign sponsored event the day before, 9/10.
Her priorities are evident and the kids were just an excuse.
point, now you’ll spoil todays agenda for Michelle, we’ll see
Was Joe Biden there?
Or perhaps...just perhaps, she and the Obamanation feel with Jeremiah Wright that our chickens came home to roost on 9/11...and “GODD*MN AMERICA” is what she really wants to say at the 9/11 ceremonies.
Was Mrs. Biden there?
Barack said he was in Illinois (for the state senate), and he was driving down Lakeshore Drive to Chicago on his way to a committee meeting. Someone from the area said it didn’t make sense because the state senate doesn’t convene in Chicago.
I have to disagree. Michelle is effectively running for First Lady. “Spouse of the VP” is not so close to the throne.
Michelle will be withdrawn from as many public exposure events as possible...
The reasons are:
1. Her personality comparison with either Mrs. McCain or Mrs. Palin is less than complimentary...
2. Her character comparison with either Mrs. McCain or Mrs. Palin is less than complimentary...
3. Her personal contributions to mainstream society, simply pale in comparison to those of Mrs. McCain and Mrs. Palin.
4. Her uncontrolled motor mouth......spewing anger bordering on hate and disloyalty to America —— don’t play well out of the black ghetto...
5. Apparently, her expensive education didn’t prepare her to chew gum, walk and talk at the same time, without getting her foot in her mouth.
6. She is totally devoid of the warmth and familiarity of Mrs. McCain and Mrs. Palin...... She comes across as an angry, bitter, self serving unpatriotic shrew with a chip on her shoulder and an “America Owes Me” attitude..
7. The media myth that Mrs. Obama is the Jackie “O” of this era -— were smoking funny cigarettes.....
8. Mrs. McCain’s adopted black child is blacker than either of the Obama children....... This must really agravate the black racist Obamas and their black racist supporters!
9. Both Mrs. McCain and Mrs. Palin earned THEIR fame by acts of service to society and accomplishments of their OWN — not their husband’s.
10. Oh Hell......you get the picture, right?
I don’t blame Michelle, seriously. My wife would do the same thing for our kids. But I am not sure that is the REAL story. The REAL story is that the Democrats are trying desperately to hide Michelle. Especially now with Palin in the race, you can’t help but compare the two, and Sarah CRUSHES her in terms of likability.
Wasnt it Awesome when John recieved a pin from a Firefighter at ground zero....
Have they showed this in the news?
For myself, I think the point is that Mrs. Obama did not spend the week with her children, but went under the radar to hustle the hustings in Indiana. So the Democratic machine lied again and laid down covering verbal fire for the least-qualified couple to run for the Presidency/First Lady ever.
Nothing new here, but from some of the posts, looks like the point can still be missed unless it is explicitly pointed out.
I would venture to guess that this “Working Mothers” “roundtable” was scheduled on 9/11 because the organizers think 9/11 is just another day, and Mrs. Obama was invited was invited because organizers think she is the perfect working mother.
They’re just keeping her out of sight as much as possible.
I think this has the Dems freaked, so they're keeping Michelle away from Barack at highly visible public events.
Just a theory, but I will test it in the days ahead to see if Mr & Mrs 0 often appear together.
I can't see any other reason why she wouldn't have been with Barack yesterday.
I’m not liking the constant comparisons of Palin to Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama I keep seeing. They’re not equivalent, and trying to make them seem so implies Palin is a token female intended to be stacked up against the other ladies.
Let’s not lose sight of the fact she is our CANDIDATE for veep, not the spouse of one, please.
sorry but she is one ugly woman.
this is the first thing in the morning and that pictures has just nearly made me sick
and why does she always look like she’s angry in it
