Skip to comments.Palin Flashback: Michelle Obama Says She's From 'Real' Chicago
Posted on 04/03/2009 12:04:42 PM PDT by lewisglad
During an address Thursday at a London school, First Lady Michelle Obama told a crowd she was from "the real part of Chicago," echoing controversial comments from Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign describing small towns as "the real America."
In remarks before the all-girls school, Mrs. Obama spoke of growing up in urban Chicago, an upbringing she said was an unlikely one for a future First Lady.
"For nothing in my life ever would have predicted that I would be standing here as the first African-American First Lady," Mrs. Obama said, according to press reports. "I was not raised with wealth or resources or any social standing to speak of. I was raised on the South Side of Chicago thats the real part of Chicago.
Mrs. Obama is in Europe this week accompanying President Barack Obama as he attended the G-20 summit in London.
Her comments don't sit well with Republicans, who point also to criticism directed at former Sen. George Allen, Virginia Republican, who stumbled during his 2006 re-election campaign by making a racially-charged remark against a rival campaign worker of Indian descent, to whom Allen said "Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia."
"The First Lady's comments are stunning," said Ken Spain, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. "Given the unrelenting Democrat attacks against both Governor Palin and former Senator Allen, one would hope that the White House would be willing to offer up a clarification of what exactly Michelle Obama meant when she made this comment."

Yes, Michelle. You are clearly a ghetto skank. No need to explain further.
Who paid for her education?
I’m from “chocolate Chicago.”
Was Blago also from “the real Chicago”? How about Daley and all the rest of the Corrupt Chicago Machine and all the crooks they send to Washington? Is that the “real Chicago”? That’s nothing to brag about, Michelle Ma Belle.
“For the first time in my adult life, I’m proud of my country...because it seems like hope is making a comeback.”
So when did you give up hope, Mrs. Obama?
She seems awfully angry to me. Does Mrs. Obama believe she is the only poor person who has achieved some modicum of success?
The US Taxpayer?
‘Real Chicago’= south side?
Does that mean the O’s are showing us the “Chocolate City Hustle?”
Yes, that is something to be proud of....from what I have seen of Alaska and from what I have seen come out of Chicago.....I would be proud to be from the “real America” not the “real Chicago”!
I have been fortunate to visit Alaska twice...all over the state. Both times I saw people going about their day to day lives, working hard, some not working at all, some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. Genuinely friendly and enjoyable to be around.
“Real World” Chicago. The reality TV show.
“Michelle” and “achieved” really shouldn’t be in the same sentence.....Michelle is a product of AA...all the way. Oh, and political connections...if what I read is true, her Daddy was a Daley bag carrier....
Yo, jus’ keepin’ it real, dat’s all, you know?
They are really uncomfortable with themselves
Reminds me of the Sopranos episode where Tony drives his kid to see an old Italian neighborhood in Newark—once nice, and now shown to be a trash-strewn hellhole. A crack-crazed hooker yells at Tony after seeing him— “What are you doing here? This is our neighborhood now!”.
Tony says :”Yeah, I can see that...”
Those dudes are from the real, real Chicago. Where only the real in-crowd goes.
From a website called, AltMuslim.com:
"...speaking of hypocrisy, and the southside of chicago- and barak obama- one time i went to the bud milliken parade ( a very big event- about 6 hours long) and at one point- michelle obama appeared waving on top of an escalade, she was wearing torn jeans, a drumpled semi dirty t-shirt half tucked in and out- and her hair was crazy undone- then she made a small speech- and actually referred to barak as her "baby daddy" (not baby's daddy even you'll notice)
some of the crowd bought it- but i thought it was really over the top in the way of pandering, as i knew she was going to a state dinner that evening and can only assume her demeanor and dress would morph accordingly."
#1 Definition of "Baby Daddy", from urbandictionary.com:
"Usually a broke ass black man; Who you met through a friend and had sex wit when you was upset and confused. Now you don had his baby and he dont pay child support and denies yo son ray ray. He just my baby daddy"
WOLF BLITZER: We can take a look. Maybe he will and maybe he won't but she looks like she's about to introduce him. Let's listen in.
MICHELLE OBAMA: "My babys daddy Barack Obama. Yeah!"
#1 Definition of "Baby's Daddy", also from urbandictionary.com:
"A guy who is a lousy father, who gots one or more kids with one or more chicks and, thinks he's a pimp. And instead of takin care of the baby he goes out an finds another chick to ****. Until she too becomes just another baby's momma and he moves on. So on and so forth."
girl one: "Who is that?"
girl two: "That's my dumbass baby daddy and his dumb ho"
From ABC News...
Marry Your Baby Daddy Day!
One Woman Wants to Bring Marriage Back to the Black Community
"This was not the historical norm. Most black kids were born to married parents until the time when President Johnson promised to end poverty. Perhaps because poor people were offered more government aid, moms had less need for a husband. Some mothers could lose a welfare check if their husband made money. People respond to such incentives, and the out-of-wedlock birthrate has continued to grow across the board, but especially among blacks.
'There is no stigma anymore in the black community about having a child out of wedlock,' said Reid, which led to the creation of Marry Your Baby Daddy Day. For those who don't know, Reid explains that 'a Baby Daddy is simply...an unmarried father. But they've become caricatures in the ghetto.'
YouTube Video: Who that is? That just my baby daddy
Lyrics to Ludacris' Obama rap song, "Obama Is Here":
"Hey... I'm back on it
like I just signed my record deal, yeah the best is here
The Bentley Coupe paint is drippin wet, it got sex appeal
Never shoulda hated, you never shoulda doubted him
With a slot in the President's iPod, Obama shouted him
Said I handled my biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer
Better yet put me in office, make me a Vice President
Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevant
Now Jesse talkin slick and apologizin for WHAT~?!
If you said it then you MEANT it how you want it, head or gut
And all you other politicians tryin to hate on my man
Watch us win majority vote in every STATE on my man
You cain't stop what's 'bout to happen, we 'bout to make history
The first black President it's destined and it's meant to be
The threats ain't fazin us, the nooses or the jokes
Get off your ass black people it's time to get out and vote
Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified
McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and just throw 'em like candy wraps
Cause what you talkin I hear nothin even relevant
And you the worst of all 43 Presidents
Get out and vote, or the end'll be near
And the world is ready for change cause Obama is here
YEAHHH! Cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change cause Obama is here
Yeahhhh, cause Obama is here
Say world is ready for change cause Obama is here
She’s right! They are from real Chicago. The thugish part!
Huh? That's something to be proud about?
Where do you think the anger comes from?
And her husband is from ‘real Kenya’. Glad we’ve straightened that out .... /s
the “anger?” HA....she’s a dem/commie/lib/fascist....they are ALWAYS angry...
Ludacris meets Ludicrous.
Sarah palin didn’t grow up in a mansion either, except she had to work her way through college without any affirmative action free ride at Princeton and Harvard.
Gimme a goddam break.
We see from yesterday’s indictments what the real Chicago is all about.
A former Governor in prison and now Blago headed towards prison as well.
If we are truly lucky, we will see Ayers headed to prison as well.
And Rahm Emmanuel charged with income tax evasion.
I guess the North Side is not real Chicago anymore, shame!
“michelle obama appeared waving on top of an escalade, she was wearing torn jeans, a drumpled semi dirty t-shirt half tucked in and out- and her hair was crazy undone- then she made a small speech- and actually referred to barak as her ‘baby daddy’”
Any way to find out if there is video of this? If the Euro-trash thought they loved her before, imagine how orgasmic THAT would make them!
The thing is........this current Chicago is the same as the old Chicago.
Corrupt to the core. Nothing has changed. Not a thing but the names and the skin color of some of the crooks.
She can use words like “Macaca” without criticism as well.
Keepin’ it real...
We never gave any of the old crooks the keys to 1600 Pa. Ave.....
Well, it is the baddest part of town.
Roland Burris and Rep. Bobby Rush (speaking)
at a Chicago news conference announcing
Gov. Rod Blagojevich's appointment of
Burris to the U.S. Senate Dec. 30, 2008.
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
PROFILE: BOBBY RUSH:
* Democratic Member of Congress
* Member of the radical Progressive Caucus
* In 1968, went AWOL from the U.S. Army
* Co-founder of the Illinois branch of the Black Panther Party
* In 1969, served six months in jail for an illegal weapons conviction
* Advocates reparations for African Americans
"Bobby Rush has described his involvement with the Black Panthers as part of his maturation process, as a youthful indiscretion that he abandoned immediately after Hampton's death. He described his role mostly as running the Black Panther Party's Free Breakfast for Children program.
But Bobby Rush served six months in jail for a 1969 illegal weapons conviction and, even after his release, in 1971 his comrades were still describing him as the 'Deputy Minister of Defense' for the Black Panther Party in Illinois. In 1992 the socialist magazine In These Times praised fledgling congressional candidate Rush, writing that he 'has continued to support progressive policies and has never disavowed his Panther past...."
From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s/original] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
According to Anne Coulterâs latest book Michelle was pulling down $350,000 a year as a diversity coordinator for a hospital in Chicago. She said she didn’t want to practice law because she wanted to give back to community and help rather than be self serving as a lawyer. Those self serving lawyers make â if they are good and have been around for a while â about $100,000 a year. She then got a pay raise to $370,000 a year after Obama got elected into the senate. Life is so tough...
Justice Department Briefing on Blagojevich Investigation:
Patrick Fitzgerald, United States attorney general for the Northern District of Illinois [speaking to press]:
Published: December 9, 2008, New York Times
Excerpts from the transcript:
Fitzgerald: "In the governor words -- governor's words, quote, 'Fire all those bleeping people. Get them the bleep out of there. And get us some editorial support', close quote. And the bleeps are not really bleeps."
Fitzgerald: "A month or so ago a $1.8 billion tollway project was announced. While that tollway project was being announced, Governor Blagojevich was privately seeking to have a person benefiting from that contract raise $100,000 in contributions, and privately the government (sic) said, 'I could have made a larger announcement but wanted to see how they would perform by the end of the year. If they don't perform, bleep 'em.' That's a quote. And the word 'bleep' was not the word he used."
Fitzgerald: "The governor's own words describing the Senate seat, quote, 'It's a bleeping valuable thing -- thing. You just don't give it away for nothing', close quote."
Fitzgerald: "Another quote, 'I've got this thing, and it's bleeping golden. And I'm just not giving it up for bleeping nothing. I'm not going to do it, and I can always use it; I can parachute me there,' quote. Those are his words, not our characterization, other than with regard to the bleep."
Fitzgerald: "The tapes reveal that Governor Blagojevich wanted a number of things in exchange for making the appointment to the Senate seat -- an appointment as secretary of health and human services or an ambassadorship, an appointment to a private foundation, a higher paying job for his wife or campaign contributions."
"Mrs. Blago, the former Patti Mell, won the hearts of old-school thugs everywhere with her f-word-filled rants captured on FBI wiretaps, some of which were colorfully detailed in the criminal complaint against her hubby..." --Michelle Malkin, December 17, 2008
That's a nice touch. Ludacris showing his softer side I guess.
Maybe youtube? Check the linked source for more info on the event and then search the youtube site using some logical keywords.
We all did, she knew how to play the game and use her race to her benefit, something she has in common with her husband.
Chicago gave the keys to the White House to JFK
White money paid for her LMAO “education” (ever see her thesis) Good hard working White people paying in to a racist system for what? Too BUY Hate? Look what it bought what a joke!
I wish she’d GO BACK to “real” Chicago - go the hell AWAY!
I think it's actually called the "Bud Billiken" parade (not 'Milliken' as the article I linked to said).
In any case, here are the youtube search results for "bud billiken parade" "obama":
And "bud billiken" "obama":
The only thing 'soft' about him is his head.
And, it just goes to show that the smartest thing a liberal democrat chick can do is marry the right guy.
Like becoming first lady is an accomplishment for her.
For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, she told a Milwaukee crowd today, because it feels like hope is making a comeback. http://hotair.com/archives/2008/02/18/michelle-obama-hasnt-been-proud-of-america-in-at-least-26-years/
There is a fake Chicago? Damn, who knew.
Totally coincidental. All "Diversity Coordinators" make this kind of money.
In fact, I'm thinking about quitting my job as an Engineer to go be one.....
Disgusting revolting this free bee sucking racist Imbecile is now among the vestiges of our greatest hero's.. Thanks RINOs \s
If, Michelle is from the’real’Chicago there must be an ‘unreal’ Chicago—where is this? I have looked on Google and they do not list it. For all of the Chicago residents who do not live in the ‘real’ part of the city would you please explain where it is you do live.
