Skip to comments.'D.C. Housewives,' get real: You're no Michelle Obama - BARF ALERT!
Posted on 08/08/2010 7:30:40 PM PDT by maggief
During a news break, we got but a glimpse of Obama, radiant and sophisticated, touring the Alhambra palace in Granada with youngest daughter, Sasha. Then it was back to our regularly scheduled programmed descent to the bottom of the cultural barrel.
Meanwhile, the real first lady is out charming the world, an ambassador of goodwill wherever she goes. Nothing but love and respect for her during recent visits to Mexico, Russia, Haiti and Spain.
That has to be at least part of the reason perceptions of U.S. leadership worldwide have improved so much since the Obamas moved into the White House -- up from 34 percent in 2008, under the Bush administration, to 51 percent in 2009, according to the U.S. Global Leadership Project.
Then there's the outright disrespect and racism that she's been subjected to as the nation's first black first lady. Last year, for example, a prominent Republican activist from South Carolina called an escaped zoo gorilla one of Obama's ancestors.

Maggie, do you have pictures of the “Obama, radiant and sophisticated?” LOL
FReepmail GOP_Lady if you want on or off this ping list
Wow, this is one heck of a piece of propaganda!
These people are sick.
In all likelihood, Courtland Milloy is a member of the Journolist listserv — and has therefore forfeited any credibility he may have once enjoyed.
Reuters Pictures 14 hours ago U.S. first lady Michelle Obama is greeted by Princess Letizia before their lunch at Marivent Palace in Palma de Mallorca August 8, 2010.
I saw that show about a bunch of self absorbed gals ..even the brunette had blonde roots.
Shakiing my head.
Princess Letizia is “radiant and sophisticated.”
He just wrote this because he thinks Michelle is bootylicious.
That’s a nice picture of super hot Princess Letizia meeting David “Big Papi” Ortiz!
Excuse me, but I am of the opinion that the last sentence in that excerpt is a LIE. Even if not, after EIGHT YEARS of “Chimpy McBushhitler”, you can POUND SAND, you metrosexual PUNK!!!
Are you kidding? The Spaniards were so disinterested they didn’t even turn up to watch her arrive at the palace. Now that is disinterest.
These poor reporter creatures are trying so hard to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. It would be sad; if it weren’t so funny watching them try their best with all the lying praise they can summon up.
Yeah! Dictators, Communists and Islamofascists just LOVE Obama (as opposed to being AFRAID oF Bush)!!! That’s what I call success!!!/sarcasm
That is funny.
and...michele AIN’T no Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.
What a beautiful and stylish young woman Princess Letizia is and...her dress and shoes are gorgeous.
Oh my goodness...I just posted something similar? Isn’t she just stunning???
Now THAT woman knows how to dress and be feminine
“I know how the “tea party” people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health-care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their “Obama Plan White Slavery” signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads.”
And Moochelle shows up looking like a farmer’s wife. Nothing against farmers’ wives but I wouldn’t want to meet royalty dressed like one.
She was so charming Chicago won the Olympics...oh wait...
Online Readers Should Tone Down the Invective
By Courtland Milloy

Who are you people?
You get invited to make comments about my work on The Washington Post Web site, and you turn my online message post into a dart board. You swagger into cyberspace under assumed names and start hurling invectives like drunks in a barroom brawl.
Sorry, but I must ask some of you to go elsewhere.
I wrote a column recently about alleged racial discrimination in the D.C. fire department, then went to see what I hoped would be your enlightened responses. What I found was uva2manassas and ged0368 at each others throats. And now Ive had enough. Im used to getting impassioned feedback, but this was out of hand.
UVA2: Instead of stupidly reponding racism to every critism, prove blacks arent lazy morons by bettering yourself.
GED: you are a racist white reneck. White ppl did the slaving on every race.
Look at that, using broken English like shards of a whiskey bottle to attack each other.
Such uncouth behavior not only discourages thoughtful guests from expressing their views, but it also diminishes my online reader profile. As my colleague David Ignatius noted in his op-ed column Sunday about the future of the newspaper business, newspaper Web sites need to become more profitable if we are to survive. And the more we know about our online readers, the more precisely we can sell their demographics to advertisers.
Sure, I get some intelligent comment, but lately Im wondering what to make of the growth of an increasingly noxious demographic.
Well, now you have gone and done it. Your post will no doubt start an international incident with the PRM:
Peoples Republic of Massachusettsistan
I’m not sure but I believe that Mr. Ortiz is some kind of hero of some sort within the boundaries of the Republic.
Yeah, she's hell on Farmville.
I saw an episode of the Housewives of DC. A British lady whose husband worked for the secret service (I believe) had the *audacity* of saying that she found President Bush to be far more cordial and classy than President Obama. The two black women in the room started shooting flames out of their eyes and nostrils, and it wasn’t 10-seconds before the race card went out on the table.
The beautiful thing about it is that this British lass just ate it up. They hated her for her opinion, and they were the fools for doing such.
Smoov B. Milloy

Wow, Courtland really is a he (at least according to the pic). If I didn’t know she was a he, I’d of bet a million bucks he was a she. Normally, guys just can’t get this sappy.
Someone at Reuters has a fabulous sense of irony and a keen eye for photo selection is all I can add!
Let’s hope he/she works across the pond and doesn’t have to fret potential IRS audits!
I seriously thought this article was satire when I read through it. It wasn't until I read some of the comments that I was sure it was written with a straight face! Yuck!
Us this article for real? These sheep in the LSM must all be deaf, dumb. blind, and brainwashed.
Michelle-Antoinette”let ‘em eat cake” Obama, “Aunt Esther” to her friends, is arrogant, awkward, and ostentatious. She throws OUR money around like Evita or Marie Antoinette, while we real Americans are all having a difficult time, and are footing the bill for her frivolity.
Letizia is charming and elegant. Aunt Esther Obama, not so much. Got hit by a bag o’ ugly on the way to the Palace.
One of the two women in that picture is so, SO Not Guilty.
The other is the First Lady of the United States.
I’d say Courtland Milloy had the hots for Michelle but this column makes him sound more like a worshipful gay BFF.
Don’t know if “Courtland” is a boy or a girl but I’d bet a dollar that the author is black and if not a woman they gay.
OOPS! Shoulda gone to the link. Sorry ladies.
Third World meets First World.
So she WASN'T wearing her "church clothes"?
“Meanwhile, the real first lady is out charming the world, an ambassador of goodwill wherever she goes.”
Actually, the vast bulk of reports indicate that she’s appalling the world wherever she goes; this reporter should simply lick Obama’s butt and get it over with.
Thanks for the ping. November 2012 can’t come soon enough.
Radiant & sophisticated Bump
