It has begun … the main stream media’s all out effort to BS the American public to show a kinder and gentler Michelle Obama. First step, Michelle Obama’s appearance on The View where the gushfest was obvious. However, does a leopard change its spots? The “Never been Proud” comment will haunt Obama from now until the election. You only get one chance to make a first impression.
The ladies did a solid, if visible job of steering her to moments where she could say pleasant, ordinary things about her kids, her breakfast habits, and her husband.
Exactly how much in the tank is the media for Barack Obama? Barack’s wife calls him pathetic instead of empathetic and gals of The View come to her rescue. Maybe it was a Freudian slip. Maybe she was just being honest. It completely astounds me that two Ivy League educated individuals can continuously make speaking blunders. Maybe its because its all scripted and they don’t believe a word that they are saying?
ORIGINAL Barbara Walters asks Michelle Obama about how she reacted when husband Barack told her he was running for president. “Did you want him to be president,” Walters asked.
No, said Obama. “”Please, don’t do this. You know, I did not want Barack to go into politics because I thought politics was a mean business. And you know, I knew this man that I loved, he was sweet and pathetic, I thought. there was no way…….”"
The MSM will be in a full court press all summer and up until the elections to reinvent Michelle Obama and spin her comment that it was the first time that she was proud to be an American. Call it Michellapolooza. I wonder if the media will give Republicans equal time like this for free campaigning?
When addressing that “mean business” called politics, Mrs. Obama announced, “I am proud of my country, without a doubt.” She clarified her now-infamous comments, claiming she was referring to “pride in the political process.”
Michelle Obama is able to now have pride in the political process since her husband is somehow above politics. She said of Sen. Obama: “I don’t even see him as a politician.”
She dismissed her role in the campaign, saying of press coverage “I fill up some space” on the Internet, and channeling one of her daughters’ “they just think I’m cute” attitude to politics. Mean things will be said “when you put your heart out there” and wear your “heart on [your] sleeve.”
