    American Thinker ^ | June 14, 2012 | Thomas Lifson
    The coming weekend will be a painful one for Desiree Rogers, the beautiful former White House Social Secretary who discovered that outshining Michelle Obama is a very, very bad idea. After following the Obamas from Chicago to DC and entering the history books as the first African-American White House Social Secretary, Ms. Rogers appeared to revel in her status as Michelle's Chicago buddy, and demonstrated a fashion sense that took advantage of her naturally slender frame and role as social gatekeeper to become (however briefly) possibly the most glamorous African American woman in the country.
  • Juan Williams just got B Slapped by Michelle Malkin

    OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How many out there just witnessed one of the most elegant, well deserved lambastings of Juan Williams by Michelle Malkin. She should win an award for that performance. She just tore that half wit to pieces within the first 12 minutes of Hannity tonight. THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! That was so exquisite because she didn't hold back and she did it with substance, something with which leftists like Williams can never enjoy the luxury. This is a MUST SEE because she did it in a way that all journalists and would be journalists should use as their...

    First Lady Michelle Obama may have ostensibly been on The Daily Show last night to talk about her new book on healthy eating and vegetables, but Jon Stewart only wanted to talk about the other green stuff—namely, the President’s former drug use, which has resurfaced in the news recently. In the two-segment interview, the First Lady was charming, but clearly was going to stay entirely on-message, touting the President’s record with regard to ending the war in Iraq, health care, and childhood education. Watch part one of the interview, where Obama discusses the famed White House Garden and “vegetable feasts”...

    In the White House pecking order, Jarrett has more clout than the president’s chief of staff. During the savage internecine warfare between Jarrett and Obama’s first two chiefs of staff — Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley — Obama sided most of the time with Jarrett, a classic limousine liberal who believes that Obama was elected president in order to engineer social change. Ultimately, Jarrett emasculated Emanuel and Daley and forced them from their jobs. She has also been responsible for much of the incompetence and amateurism that have been the hallmarks of Obama’s time in office. Indeed, Jarrett has been...

    First Lady Obama presumes that her husband's Supreme Court Nominees will protect political rights not enumerated in the Constitution. She made this remarkable claim at Democrat fundraisers by stressing that Sotomayo and Kagan are indeed political appointees and can be counted on to protect the right to "Love whomever we choose" and "the right privacy". This mysterious "Privacy" right is presumably a reference to Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, but these nebulous terms are often invoked to mean anything Democrat strategists want them to mean at a later date. In a typical Michelle Obama statement, her bathos logic maintained...
