Daily Mail ^ | 2/26/13 | Beth Stebner

Posted on 02/26/2013 9:26:55 PM PST by Nachum

The first lady has come under criticism for her recent media blitz, with some lambasting her for her unprecedented number of appearances on entertainment and programs. Michelle Obama has certainly made the rounds in the past week, from promoting an anti-obesity campaign with late night host Jimmy Fallon to her surprise Oscars appearance announcing the Best Picture winner. Critics complain that Mrs Obama is overstepping her reach and risks losing favor with the public for being overexposed.

The commies are setting up Moochelle for 2016. The freeloaders are going to love it.

I would watch her gladly and closely, even on that gap-toothed idiot Letterman’s show, IF:
She agreed to crack walnuts with her ginormous caboose. That would really be something.

From the first weeks Obama was in the White House, I could see that she was thinking to herself, I’m next. It will happen if we don’t fight.

Her new sheepdog look

Lol thanks that's it. It reminded me of something but I couldn't quite place it. When FLOTUS isn't scarfing down a meal she's out trying to herd the dumb sheep so it fits on that level as well.

Mccain was right about one thing in the 2008 campaign when he said the Obamas weren't politicians they were celebrities. These camera whores can't govern but they just want to lord over every public event. It's ridiculous.

even my more liberal friends and family were not happy to see her during the Oscars... everyone in the room felt like she had no place there... one said, ‘they aren’t celebrities... they need to be taking care of business, not making all these appearances.”

Was she sent out on the TV circuit to ease suspicions in the aftermath of 0bama’s ‘no press allowed’ getaway with special guest Reggie Love? wink wink.. YES.

This makes me scared. But could be right. I put nothing above these people.

That way The Won could get 8 more years.

But what about Biden? Would they promise him another eight year stint as VP...or just lock him in a closet?

I now call her “The First Uni Bang”. Actually they say it is a wig I don't know if it is but I have to laugh to myself as I have bangs and some days they just look crappy. I am wishing she has crappy hair days with her bangs especially when she goes on TV if I am lucky she will sprout a cowlick.

She's obviously competing with the family dog, BO, but BO definitely looks better in bangs than she does.

There is nothing “presidential” about these two ass-clowns, showboating and sellin’ their wares to the highest bidder.
Like two dressed-up gypsys, they travel from one venue to another in their wagon, peddeling their crap ideology and putting their hand out for money.

Get serious. She has even less credentials than Obozo himself. She could win a general election only with massive voter fraud, but will never be able to get the democratic nomination. The 2014 mid-terms will tell us all we need to know. Will conservatives finally show up at the polls after learning twice that elections have consequences? We'll see.

“Critics complain that Mrs Obama is overstepping her reach and risks losing favor with the public”..........

Like most of us, I “lost favor” BEFORE she moved into the White Hut. She is nothing but an evil, nasty bit@h, sucking on the teat of the American public. The sooner she is GONE, can’t be soon enough for me.

So, it will be Hillary vs Michelle in the primaries? That’s a bitch fight I’d like to see.
M: “You’re husband cheated on you.”
H: “Maybe, but your husband is Gay.”
And so on...

I am nothing but serious.

Credentials? Not a relevant consideration. The comparison and context is not anything you or would normally bring up in our thinking. This is imagery, this is kabuki theater, this is a tsunami of free and paid propaganda that would render Goebbels himself dumbstruck.

With Michelle, you would be getting both a Black woman AND 0bama III, historic, and historic. It would be a towering s**tstorm of historical mysticism. Would that be showing Whitey what’s good for him or what? The tension between Hillary ‘16 movement and the Michelle ‘16 movement could be cut with a chainsaw. By that time, the lower classes will be even more dredged into poverty than they are now, foodstamps will be expanded another 5-8%, disposable income will be crushed and medical costs under 0bamacare will have exploded. Yet none of this will stick to 0bama, we will hear this “...for the little guy...” crap until the poor are dragging themselves through the streets, starving. Well we had some glitches under Daddy 0bama, but now Mama Michelle will take over and guide us with a gentle hand. Between now and Novemeber ‘16, Michelle could be receiving literally a billion dollars worth of free exposure.

Serious? I am serious as a heart attack. You’re massively underestimating what these people are capable of doing.

I don’t know too many people with neutral feelings towards her, so I doubt that all these appearances will change anything. Those who love her will continue to love her. Those who hate her will continue to hate her.

Biden is a zero, he’ll be thrown under the bus like every other dishrag they’re done with. But gently.

I think one has to consider the functionality of Biden in the 0bama ascendency. He was a validator. He was the white guy who said the black guy was OK. I don’t believe his fate is pivotal in the scenario I am raising, and let me be clear, it’s only a scenario. But I think we are going to see this “new Michelle” thing and I believe we are watching a test. A marketing test. MO is phenomenally popular. BO is phenomenally popular even though most people are hating their economic straits. It just ain’t sticking to him. Who knows, maybe in 3 years we will have a roaring economy again or, maybe we will be even deeper into the soup. Mama 0bama will take care of us!

I don’t believe MO is guilty of any crime.

But “in jail” typically means (unless a kidnapping has taken place) that some sort of legal penalty has been imposed...and for that to happen, a finding of guilt must have occurred....and for that to happen, charges must have been brought....and for that to happen, there has to be some sort of law enforcement in place.

And we both know that there isn’t. Except for folks like us.

Limbaugh was right when he called Down Low Barry President Kardashian months ago. Pop culture is rotten in this country.

That said, remember Michael Jackson? He was the most popular guy in the world—until....he became a bleach skinned, perv with no nose. Pop culture does this all the time—create a phenom—then cheer their demise.

I’m seeing this start to happen to Mooch and Down Low Barry. This hog has overplayed her hand.

If nothing else she is committing a crime against good taste. I am sure her crimes against humanity are many. Her crimes against America and fiscal sanity are many. Her existence is a crime to many. She aids and abets the criminals in the white hut.
