CURL: Shelly O The first lady comes in last (The Mooch is unlikeable - who knew?)
washingtontimes.com ^ | 4/21/2014 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 04/21/2014 6:27:26 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

This first lady has been the weakest and most trivial in a half-century, no substance, and not even any flash — a Shelly O, maybe, but no Jackie O. One reason: She’s not all that likeable. She polls OK, but c’mon, who’d want to hang out with her? She just doesn’t seem fun, often has on that “I’m-Not-Amused” face. Something about her makes you think: Boy, she’s angry about something.

Remember that glare she gave the French first lady? How about that body language when hubby Barack was taking that selfie at the Nelson Mandela funeral (well, maybe she had a point).

And then there’s the 2008 campaign, when she said: “For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country.” And her Princeton dissertation, when she lamented her future in a “white cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society, never becoming a full participant.”

Really? A black man is president — and he’s your husband! No, racism isn’t dead, and will never be in those backwood pockets of the South, but please, we’re well past the Jim Crow days, and someone — maybe even you, Shelly O — ought to be celebrating where America has finally arrived.

But Mrs. Obama has never been fully satisfied with America’s treatment of her. For some reason, she continues to harbor bitterness, and that comes through in nearly everything shes does. You gotta wonder when the president decides to head to Oso, Wash., as he is next week. Just need to get away? Cuz, what’s in Oso, Wash., that draws the president? Oh, an overnight. Gotcha.

“No, racism isn’t dead, and will never be in those backwood pockets of the South,”

Bigotry comes in all forms. Assuming people are racist because they live in the South is a good example.

I sometimes cut the woman some slack because of who she’s married to. But then there are times she gets up on her high horse to lecture with no moral authority.

So fortunate that bigotry never exists in the urban utopias of the North.

I would think she'd come in at around 5th most popular, sort of like her hubby.

I am assuming this idiot is a northerner. They feel superior when they accuse southerners of racism and they pretend there is no racism in the north and no racism in the black community.

The poor Blacks of the South should be relocated to the northeast…say Manhattan and New Haven. It’s only fair.

What a foul person she must be. BO deserves her.

“... she lamented her future in a “white cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society, never becoming a full participant.”

Both “O” and MO are walking, living, breathing LIES!

They want it both ways... They want to perpetually slam the country and American society, yet simultaneously to exemplify shining examples of what current and ongoing improvements in race relations have accomplished for minorities everywhere in this country!!

When oh WHEN will they be called to account for this shabby, gratuitous lie?

This lie has been institutionalized and is by now an incessant hum throughout all of American culture... and I am sick to death of it!

The lie has disfigured the American national character and has corrupted society! Millions of American citizens have volutarily detached themselves from the social and cultural mainstream in this country, JUST to tune it OUT!

If Mooch really wanted to make a difference, she could target hypertension in the Black community. Unresolved and internalized anger is a big cause and she is the poster child for angry black females.

The following chart shows the hospitalization rates for blacks and whites for hypertension.

Big problem...one not help by Jesse and Al and the Obamas.

Age- and sex-standardized rates [of hospitalization for hypertension] confirmed that blacks had higher rates than whites (Figure). For example, in 2007–2010, whites had a rate of 97.4 per 100,000 population; blacks had a rate of 334.2 per 100,000 population — more than 3 times the rate for whites. Neither racial group showed a significant linear trend over the 5 periods.

"But Mrs. Obama has never been fully satisfied with America’s treatment of her."

"America's treatment of her?" She's lived a pampered upper middle class lifestyle her entire life and, nevertheless, has climbed life's social and economic ladder based almost exclusively on affirmative action.

Maybe being squeezed out of the Illinois bar, under murky, concealed circumstances, like the malignant contents of a putrescent pustule, only four years after she was admitted soured her attitude a bit.

I had a friend who happened to be black who grew up on a farm in Tennessee. He had told me how some of the neighboring farmers were up front with how they felt about blacks, but they would still do business with you, trade favors, and help you out when you needed it. He learned that people up North were much worse because they kept their feelings hidden, yet would shut you out when it came to interactions and opportunity.

The old phrase used to be that the Southerner would say “You may come closer but you may not rise higher”, and the Northerner would say “You may rise higher but you may not come closer”. Ugly, but with some truth to it.

The author’s snide comment in passing though reminds me of why I am happier living next to Southern blacks than smug Yankees.

LOL! I was thinking the same thing.

If the writer is trying to give an honest assessment, a more accurate statement would have been-

No, racism isn’t dead, and will never be as long as you and your ilk insist on resurrecting it for political points.

....but I guess that would have been raaaacist.

I just read an article regarding a survey which showed New York State to have the most segregated schools in the nation. The other states in the top ten were almost all in the northeast.

From reading her sophomoric racist thesis, she didn’t belong at Princeton based on merit, she knew it, was bitter, and as usual projected it onto “racist” whites.

“smug Yankees”. I assume you are referring to liberal Yankees.

Also, just what does the term “Yankee” mean now? Living in Minnesota, some folks call whites who live here “Yankees”. It is meant to be derisive. The majority of white folks here are descendants of 19th century immigrant from Germany, Scandinavia, Poland, etc.

It is a shame that the term has taken on a negative connotation. Yankees used to be honorable folks who died for freedom and abolishment of slavery. I do not think any of today’s modern liberals qualify to assume the title.

The gratuitous slur drew my eye, too.

The fact is, racism is more widely spread in liberal circles -- political committees, faculty lounges, elite dinner parties, etc. -- than in the those "backwoods pockets". Everywhere the "need" for affirmative action is accepted, there is racism.

All of which tends to confirm the aptness of Mooch's college thesis...

So true,

I also like the comment about the Jim Crow laws.

Jim Crow is alive and well. They just changed the word ‘Required” to “Deserve”

As in, You “deserve” black only magazines, clubs, Charmer of commerce, beauty pageants, history month, college funds, etc.

I guess only a backwoods, Southern racist like myself would comment on the racial segregation of liberal policies celebrated by the likes of those enlightened North-Eastern intellectuals. /sarc
