Was Michelle Obama elected president, too? First lady corrects misstep
The Washington Times ^ | June 2, 2014 | By Dave Boyer

First lady Michelle Obama got a little carried away with her title Monday, correcting herself after suggesting to supporters that she, too, got elected in 2008.

At a Democratic fundraiser in Boston, Mrs. Obama asked the audience to remember “when we took office.”

Then she said, “Well, when Barack took office and I was there.”

She said the president has accomplished a lot of the “change” he promised in 2008.

“We are the president.” Gee, where have we heard that before?

Her term doesn’t begin until after Hillary’s two: Jan 2025.

At various times, Hillary slips into we mode, saying we did this or we did that during the Clinton administration.

Mules cookies. All he’s accomplished is to show what an impotent, er, incompetent boob he is. All she’s accomplished is to grow her backside by two axe-handles.

Hmmmmmmm....looks like the itinerant parasite (AKA the first lady) is getting ready to launch herself into a political campaign.

Michelle is looking---and sounding--- more and more like a candidate everyday. Recent news clips of the I/P making the HS grad speech (where she ordered kids to squeal on their families) shows she's been coached well. The way she used one hand to subtly gesticulate while making her points, was the tipoff.

Let's go back to her last trip on the taxpayers' dime.

That would be the pricey China trip.... "sold" to Americans as a "non-political" visit...she was just there to chat up education. But all of her appearances and inane remarks were connivingly structured for one purpose: to set herself up as a future candidate....and doing it on our dime.

MISSION CREEP Then the WH let loose with the final explanation....that her trip, and the tripe she was pedaling, was "soft diplomacy" ---- to "ease tensions" between the US and China (which have further deteriorated).

Come again? Who elected this self-serving creep? Who gave her diplomat credentials? She was there to "ease tensions" between the US and China---but flopped bigtime as Us/China relations have deteriorated even further. \

I just hope Valerie Jarett doesn't get carpel tunnel syndrome wire-transferring federal funds offshore for Michele's campaign expenses.

And I just can't wait til candidate Michele announces that she's s-o-o-o-o popular, she raised $50 million dollars in 2 hours. ROTFLOL.

=========================================

YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS---GHETTO GIRL MAKES GOOD After Obama's 2008 election, hopes were high that Michelle Obama’s (gag) political appeal and charisma would enable her to transform it into something that reflected the role of modern women as equal participants in the political process.” That never happened----having been burned by the intense criticism she received on the campaign trail when she said, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.”

She’s right, which means she can not run again. Lets hope she never consider a future run to become president like Hillary

Conservatives have routinely expressed suspicion about Valerie Jarrett's role in Obama’s inner circle. The former Chicago lawyer and businesswoman has been a top adviser to the president since his election in 2008.

Her official WH title is "Senior Deputy Advisor" (in Chicagon gangland politics that means "wire transfer artist")

Michele Obama was hired by Jarrett---then an official in the Daley Admin.

Laura Ingraham insightfully said that “all roads lead to Valerie Jarrett," noting Jarrett's involvement in secret dealings w/Iran (where Jarrett was born and raised). She has her tentacles into every issue and every topic..... at least part of her role is to serve as “chief liaison to the business community, state and local governments, and the professional left,” but her influence is undeniable.

Jarrett commands a staff of nearly three dozen, and has a hand in decisions ranging from invitation lists to state dinners and gifts to foreign leaders, to USSC nominees, ambassador appointee, President Medal of Freedom awardees.

When Warren Buffett visits to the White House for lunch, the table is set for three.

Here she is (in pink) at the BP extortion meeting. CNN reported 2010: Behind closed doors and after four hours of negotiations, BP executives agreed to put $20bn into an independently managed compensation fund.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS---Obama was joined in the negotiations by VP Joe Biden, and five cabinet secretaries, including DHS Janet Napolitano, interior secretary, Ken Salazar, energy secretary, Steven Chu, Labor Secy Hilda Solis, Valerie Jarrett, and COS Rham Emanuel. / PICTURE/BP Holdings.

DOING THE DEAL--- Valerie takes notes as Obama dreams about his cut and new diamonds for Michele. In foreground, then-COS Rahm Emanuel's hand holds the pencil jotting down his cut that will help make him Chicago Mayor.

At the top, in turquoise, then-Labor Secy Hilda Solis figures out her cut and how many BP executive jobs she needs for latinos. Left, Valerie Jarrett hopes Biden will remember his scripted lines.

MOB HIT VP Joe Biden Told BP: "You’ll Put $20 Billion In Escrow Or We’ll Do It For You."

=============================================

Jarrett is "The Enforcer"---making sure Obama is properly adored and worshipped. If you don't worship Oboba-- Valerie's gonna getchou.

Ka-ching! Thanks, suckers. Enjoy your carrot sticks while I chow down on meatball subs.

Oh my aching wallet, ain't that the truth.

Unless the Demonrats get a "dream ticket" of Hillary/Michelle in 2016. The dumbed-down electorate would probably elect them. That's why the idea, as idiotic as it initially appears, is not that far-fetched.

“when we took office.”

Hillary's "You get two for the price of one". IMHO we were vastly overcharged.

Moochie isn't the first arrogant b**ch in the White House who got confused about her non-existent place in the federal power depth chart.

How many remember this idiotic statement from Hillary Clinton back when she and Bill were soiling the White House?

“I’m not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president”

— Hillary Clinton commenting on the release of subpeonaed documents.

***
I tagged her plans when I saw her walking during the last Obama Coronation. It was quite obvious to me that has been coached on walking like a woman instead of doing her usual Frankenstein stagger. Also, she has been wearing clothing that is much more appropriate instead of the chest belt or the kitchen curtains get-up.

Don’t know yet if the Soros Administration will send her to the Oval Office or to another office.
