Michelle Obama a Senator from Illinois?
American Thinker ^ | 06/08/2014 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 06/08/2014 10:24:02 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

After Michelle and Barry leave the White House – if they leave the White House, which is certainly up in the air – there are rumors afoot that they may emulate Bill and Hillary and take up residence as far away from each other as humanly possible.  To add intrigue to connubial conjecture, it is also alleged that Michelle may do a Hillary Clinton and run for a Senate seat in Illinois.

Speculation abounds that when she’s not “playing politics with our kid’s health,” doing the Dougie on late-night talk shows, vacationing with mom and the girls, scolding schools begging to opt out of her vegetarian stuffed cabbage lunch, or giving hubby the ole stink eye, Shelley has her other eye on a seat in the Illinois senate.

It is already firmly established that Michelle Obama relishes the trappings of power, frittering away tax dollars, and bossing large numbers of people around.  Moreover, if she makes her mind up about something, she absolutely refuses to take “no” for an answer, so it makes sense she’d want to embark on a political career of her own.

To date, just like Hillary Clinton has not officially expressed interest in parking her pantsuit in the Oval Office, the FLOTUS has not officially expressed interest in running for the Senate.

SHE HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING

If Michelle were to decide to dip her size 11.5 feet into the political waters in 2016 and attempt to unseat Republican Mark Kirk, according to a Public Polling Policy survey she’s got a good shot.  The survey says Mrs. Obama would pick up 51 percent of the vote, Kirk 40 percent.

Of course she would win. American voters get more stupid by the day, so why not?

I remember laughing the first time I heard the rumor that Hillary Clinton would run for the US Senate.

Only if the voters of Illinois wish to prove irrecoverably that they’re imbeciles.

But, then, there’s never been any shortage of imbeciles.

Michelle 0bama would win easily in Illinois.

She'd be a disaster, but she would win easily.

Our government is really starting to resemble a monarchy, complete with Dukes, Duchesses and Queens.

Do you notice that you rarely see Bill and Hillary together at all? I think they live separate lives.

If Hillary weren’t next in line to inherit the White House, the Mooch would easily win that race as well.

After the long line of weasels and charlatans that have slithered into public office there, is there any doubt IL has long established that it’s the Imbecile State?

The top photo. Just look at the contrast in elegance and beauty Spain and France's princesses vs our "First" Lady.

Can you imagine waking up to Michelle every morning?

Well .. parents are furious at her for the “food” at school fiasco .. everybody is furious about her husband’s treatment of our military .. and .. she actually did say she was not proud of America until her husband was elected president.

Hmmmmmm ..?? That’s not a very stellar career for a First Lady. Hillary has the same problem. Everything these women have done has been a disaster.

Oh yeah .. if she’s so smart and savvy, why did she need over 20 women on her staff .. when Laura did twice as much with only 2 people.

Hillary ain’t no-ways tahrd of black people only when they serve her purpose. Once the election’s in the rear-view mirror, she puts the blackness away.

I have no doubt she would win, but I don’t think she wants a career in politics. She would rather be a celebrity. I see her ending up as a co-host on “The View.”

It's Illinois. Just about any Democrat they run will beat Kirk in a presidential election year.

I remember shaking my head and laughing the first time I heard someone named Barak Hussein Obama was running for president. I remember thinking, “No way - do they think people are stupid? A guy with the name Hussein running for office AFTER 911? No way.”

The race for a Senate seat in North Carolina is in 2016.

They would have to sell the Chicago mansion and establish residency in NC...which is what they might be up to.

Illinois is held hostage by Cook County. Get away from Cook County, and 98% of the rest of the state is actually rather conservative.

They are typical liberals in that they have no tolerance for anyone who does not think the way they do. So they want nothing to do with me and I can live with that just fine.
