Michelle Obama’s Next Move (President? Supreme Court Justice?)
Newsweek ^ | December 3, 2012 | Allison Samuels

Posted on 12/02/2012 7:42:46 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Chatting with a group backstage on the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in October, Michelle Obama made it clear that she wasn’t thinking about what she might do in the future. “I’m just looking ahead to getting Barack back in office and continuing the work he’s been doing,” she said. “Supporting him is my focus.”

But others think the first lady—who spent the past four years seeking to better the lives of military families and fighting to end childhood obesity before becoming one of the stars of her husband’s reelection effort this fall—could have bigger things ahead of her, if she so chooses. “Michelle is Superwoman. What can’t she do?” Samuel L. Jackson recently told Newsweek. “That’s why people love her. She can be on the Supreme Court and anywhere else she wants. She can be the president. She’s history and she’ll stay history because she is so amazingly smart and together.”

Jackson isn’t the only person thinking along these lines. “I’d love to see her get more into politics because it would be a breath of fresh air in D.C.,” says Democratic Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina. “She’s honest and straightforward, which is not what you see in Washington much. She is exactly what we need around here.”(continued)

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE ARMAGEDDON

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
Uses a teleprompter so well, it’s Jarrett can’t you tell
Soros and globalists like the show.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Hurtling over the fiscal cliff;
Michelle’s spending all she can, while still blaming the white man
Liberal fascism for sure.

Well there’s commies n muzzies n Benghazi but no worries
says the propaganda press ministry of spin;

Ayers n Davis Black Panthers n Operation Furious
Solyndra don’t forget Cloward Piven;

And the ruling class of corrupt Congress hacks are giddy all over again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
Bama’s still squatting in the White Hut;
No birth documents to show, the Usurpers gotta go
Reggie Love is waiting under the mistletoe (oh no!).

It’s beginning to look a lot like Armageddon
ObambiCare they say is the “law of the land”;
Justice Roberts violated his oath, Barry Soetoro still smokes
And our troops keep dying in ‘Stan.

Wasn’t she disbarred? How could she be on the Supreme Court?
These people have lost their minds.

If she’s appointed to a position requiring confirmation, she’ll have to explain the why she surrendered her law license.

Yes we have.... When insignificant people like Michelle become significant, things have seriously changed.

The thought of her as President or Supreme Court Justice is laughable! Accomplishments ----- wife of a community organizer who ran the USA into the ditch....... Other than that, she might know the difference between broccoli and cauliflower. Might?

I only learned that about five or so years ago.

Shocking honestly.

Most sitting justices learn a lot about life, having to sit through cases.

I can’t imagine anyone being qualified without some practical courtroom experience, say ten years or so.

She probably retired it because she wasn’t going to practice and didn’t want the hassle and expense of keeping up with CLE requirements. It’s not unusual.

The lesson of Hillary Clinton that people have apparently missed- being married to a President does no confer any especial wisdom on foreign or public policy.

I can see Moochelle given a lifetime appointment, such as a seat on a Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, or a safe Congressional district somewhere in Chicagoland.

Washington DC wins because they control the CCC & leadership.
*******************
A SC Justice doesn’t have to have a law degree. However, it’s highly unlikely that the Senate would approve someone without one, since so many of them are lawyers (trained liars).

Yes, I come from a family of idiots.

Don’t think she was technically disbarred...but she did “voluntarily” surrender her law license for reason or reasons unknown to all but the Illiois bar...but something smells fishy there.

He “voluntarily” gave up his law license..just one more detail of his past we will never know.

All I know is the conservative justices better have taste testers and stay out of Ft. Marcy Park !!

By current standards, Michelle is well qualified for either position. Wait a few years, and those jobs won’t be around any more. Oh well, she’ll be queen then.

“I’m just looking ahead to getting Barack back in office and continuing the work he’s been doing,” she said. “Supporting him is my focus.”

Really, Moochelle, what work is that? His work on the golf course? His work on the basketball court? His work as a customer for a Broadway show? His work screwing America and Americans more than he has?

And, by "supporting him", does that mean you plan to get a job if or when he finally leaves what remains of the White House?

I hope Sam Jackson has doctors who are as qualified for their job as Michelle is for the supreme court or presidency. According to Sam it's skin color that determines a persons qualifications. He calls moochelle superwoman but I think it's more like Wonder-If-It’s-A-Woman.

Could Mochelle the spender really, really, really be a SCJ?

Probably!

The media would be totally uninterested in WHY she no longer has a license to practice law.

After all, she is sooooo erudite(not); soooooo interested in the betterment of the US (not); sooooo smart in intellectual endeavors(not); so very charming and vogue (not).

However, sigh, the GOP would probably be AFRAID to refuse her nomination because they have such a need to stay in good with the media. Now that's a hoot!--because never happen!
