Michelle Obama and the New Face of Feminism
Pajamas Media ^ | December 5 | Katherine Berry

Posted on 12/05/2008 3:59:00 PM PST by AJKauf

What's so wrong about choosing to be "mom-in-chief" for the next four years?

To those who’d seen Michelle Obama as a symbol, her announcement that she plans to focus on raising her daughters comes as a blow — a personal blow inspiring “feminist fury” — for which they blame society at large for subordinating women’s lives to everyone else’s. It’s that very belief, more than Michelle’s emphasis on motherhood, which qualifies as “strangely retro” for within it lies the assumption that she is a victim making a sacrifice, and not a fully empowered woman making a choice....

Who knows when she's telling the truth anyway? Michelle MaBelle is a bitter shrew. She will do whatever she wants, whenever she wants to do it and NOBODY better get in her way. She was hidden away for months so as not to hurt 0bama’s election chances. Now NO ONE has a right to tell her what she's going to do and how she's going to act. This angry affirmative action ace is a ticking time bomb.

Hey, anyone got a picture of Angela Davis?

I’m still trying to figure out how to post a photo.

She’s a very scary, hate-filled person (and if her thesis is any indication, not very bright, either). IIRC, she was supposed to have some job in Barry’s admin. I don’t remember exactly what it was - head of one of those creepy new things Ayers has dreamed up. Maybe head of the Bambi Brown Shirts?

My prediction? We’re not going to see much of Michelle now that he’s been elected, either.

A few Oprah-like puff pieces by friendly media. We’ll hear about whatever her ‘pet project’ is, but that’ll be about it. She’ll never be portrayed in a bad light by the MSM.

So the new face of feminism looks like Lt. Worf? Strangely appropriate.

I agree a person filled with so much hate and bitterness is not going to silenced at least until another election. Her nasty, hateful anger will never be badly portrayed in the press, but justified. It would be to the advantage of both those little girls if mommy dearest did go back to work, although since her mother is moving in too and she raised the “bitter one” who knows.

"Who knows when she's telling the truth anyway? Michelle MaBelle is a bitter shrew. She will do whatever she wants, whenever she wants to do it and NOBODY better get in her way. "

Hillary now has the title and trump card to talk down to Michelle Obama. As Sec of State, Hillary can snub Michelle as just the wife of the President. First Lady has no voice and can't complain.
