CNN.com Poll: ‘Should Michelle Obama Run For President in 2020?’

CNN.com Poll: ‘Should Michelle Obama Run For President in 2020?’ By Matthew Balan Created 2009-04-06 17:50

CNN.com Graphic | NewsBusters.orgIt appears that CNN’s “Michelle mania” has reached a new level. After referring to the Obamas as the “royal family of the United States” on April 1 [0], the network conducted a web “quick vote” on Monday on whether the first lady should run for her husband’s position in 2020.

The results, however, did not bode well for “mighty Michelle,” as one guest on CNN labeled Mrs. Obama [0]. Before the poll was taken down, 83% were opposed to the idea, while 17% were in favor. As the graphic states plainly, it is not a scientific poll.

As much as this “Michelle mania” is apparently running rampant abroad, as the network would lead you to believe from these reports, these results may mean that “America’s unofficial royalty [0]” have some obstacles to overcome before any political dynasty could become a reality.

Sure, why not? She’s equally qualified as her husband.

GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK, they have only been in the Casa Blanca for barely over 2 months. CNN is a batch of pwned IDIOTS!

As long as she maintains celebrity status, she would be considered qualified by 56% of the voters, apparently.

And these people wonder how and why some see them as liberally biased. They are so enraptured of the zeros, they can't see that not everyone is.

Can you see them asking that question of Laura Bush one month into the W's admin?
I can't even see them thinking it!

I think the first lady is required to serve a partial term as a Senator from a convenient state she’s never lived in before she is considered qualified. It also gives her time to have a ghost writer produce an autobiography for he to make a few million dollars.

I have a feeling by 2010 Michelle will have lower approval ratings than Hillary ever had. They will be so low she couldn’t even be elected DC dog catcher. She is one unhappy and hatefilled woman, it shows and can only become more evident with the passage of time.

apparently, it is not kosher for us to notice that she has wider shoulders than her husband. (she wears sleeveless outfits all the time for a reason, but then again, so did Bo Jackson)

After all, experience, principals, love-of-country, patriotism, love of freedom, love and respect of the US Constitution are apparently no longer prerequisites.

This is just like the CNN person who asked Michael Steele if he is "jealous" of Obama; there is NO way CNN would have ever asked that of a Bush-basher. These people are delusional, in the clinical sense of the word.

CNN.com Poll: ‘Should Michelle Obama Run For President in 2020?’

Reasons why not:

1. The White House already has enough curtains.

2.She has no chance against Sarah Palin running for relection.

3.By that time, her knees will be farther apart than her hips.

4.Barack is going to make her work.

5.Her knuckles will be worn out from too many "terrorist fist bumps".

6.She still will not have figured out the correct way to button her sweater.

7.She will refuse to stop wearing teal shoes with blue outfits.

She’s just as qualified as Hilary and she can run on the same platform.

By then, most of todays illegal aliens and Muslims will have full time government jobs with ACORN, so she shouldn’t have any trouble getting out the vote... I say go for it.

Besides, by then I will likely be taking the long dirt nap.

While I was helping install my wife’s art in a hospital emergency room I was subjected to CNN for the entire weekend. I nearly needed a gurney myself as I was made sick over the fawning, drooling, obsequiousness of the “news” people. They were jabbering about the couple bringing class and energy to the White House, and gushing over every move Michelle made. On Sunday morning, it was the 60 Minutes’ hate, aimed directly at Fox News, whose coverage they attacked at every opportunity as one-sided, low-class or ignorant.

The assumption being that her idiot husband has not destroyed America in his one and only term,because if weget lucky and we do survive these fools no one would ever vote for anyone like themagain in a hundred years...

Wider than her husband in many other areas too. About the only thing which I have any faith that Hussein is not guilty of is spousal abuse. She take him out with one meaty fisted punch.
