Excellent. She has stepped fully into the political debate. She is now a completely legitimate target. Heh heh heh....
Squarely in the middle? LMAO, her opinion is irrelevant.
Michelle is a lawyer isn’t she?
Why not appoint her to SCOTUS?
Funny, I have had the exact same feeling since January 20, 2009.
That’s funny, these days I feel like a visitor in a foreign country......
Shut your piehole, Michelle.
Look at me! Look at me! I am ready, she is ready, He is really really ready! Believe me!! Really Really!!
Those who have to continually tell you that ‘they are ready’....ain’t ready.
“Obama compared her own experiences to those of Sotomayor, recalling the `voices of people sowing seeds of doubt’ **who questioned whether she and people with similar backgrounds were ready.**”
If she’s suggesting that:
we were wrong about her and her (quite possibly muslim, foreign-born) husband, who is apparently driving us all over the edge of a cliff,
so we’re wrong about the latina who is wiser than whitey ...
Objection—assumes facts not in evidence!
So it’s a race thing.
Excuse me while I blow chunks!
For what? Wearing designer clothing, planting carrots and going to broadway shows? You are where you are at the moment because of who you are married to, period. Many of us didn't vote for him and no one voted for you.
These Ivy League and other prestigious universities have completely stood higher education in the USA on its head for the sole purpose of achieving ‘diversity.’ Does anyone to this day believe Mrs. Obama would have been admitted without the boost of her minority status?
We can only hope (in vain) that the day comes when applicants don’t have to check off race/gender OR relatives who’ve graduated from the institution OR NCAA standing.
They insist on admitting less qualified students to make their diversity numbers look good .. regardless of the admittee’s readiness. The ‘legacy’ and athletics admitee process also admits students less than prepared for rigorous academics. It happens at the Ivies, at the military academies, at top ranked colleges across the country. And, God knows, it happens at the big sports schools.
It would be nice to think that there is at least one university in the USA that is a true meritocracy. Don’t think we’ll see that in any of our lifetimes.
More than ready to implement their long-held racist ideology.
“Judge Sotomayor is more than ready. I was more than ready, and Barack Obama is certainly more than ready
For what, Michelle? New $600 sneakers?
These people don't know the difference between "normal" feelings and feelings that they attribute to being "different."
There were three times the number of people on my college campus as the population of the town I came from. I was scared! It's normal!
Ironically, one of the first new friends I made was a Mexican from the Rio Grande Valley! I guess it says more about the differences between people from the Northeast and people from Texas.
Michelle, please explain to the rest of us how you procure a $300k no show job.
That would really give us an idea as to your “depth of experiences” that make a person such as you qualified for making decisions for the rest of us.
