Michelle Obama – Partisan "Attack" Dog

 Many First Ladies have been “famous” or known for certain specific things. For example, Nancy Reagan was known for her red dresses. Hillary Clinton was known for staying married to a philandering husband. Mamie Eisenhower was known as a very gracious hostess. Now, it’s Michelle Obama’s turn. Michelle is the VERY FIRST First Lady to become visible in “attack” politics. A dignified, transcendent first lady? No way. Michelle is going to break with a hundred years of tradition and play the role of attack dog, heaping derision on Barack Obama’s political opponents like no first lady before her.

Sure, she has been quite outspoken. For example, after her husband was nominated by the Democrat party in 2008, she said, “For the first time in my adult lifetime – and not just because Barack has done well, I’m really proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” BTW, Barack Obama had this “clarification“: “What she meant was, this is the first time that she’s been proud of the politics of America. She has seen large numbers of people get involved in the process, and she’s encouraged.”

Michelle Obama has not been the most popular First Lady in history, perhaps because of her vacation habits at taxpayer expense (Spain, Hawaii, Martha’s Vineyard), preaching about food (McDonald’s, chain restaurant menus and fast food), and being quite vocal with her society comments (America is ‘just downright mean’).

On Thursday, October 27, 2011, she was dispatched to Davis Island, near Tampa, Florida to mingle with people her husband most demonizes – the “rich.” At a quite large mansion on Tampa Bay, filled with the very wealthy, Michelle Obama attacked “them” – the Republicans. During her “speech” at a fund-raiser, she was in full “attack mode.” Here are a few of her comments:

  • “Will we let insurance companies deny us coverage because we have preexisting conditions like breast cancer or diabetes?” I guess she forgot that insurance companies are in business to make a (gasp!) profit, and that we policy-holders ultimately pay for ‘preexisting conditions.’
  • “And lets not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices and for the first time in history, our daughters – and our sons – watched three women take their seats on our nation’s highest court. But more importantly, let’s not forget the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come – on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose. That is what’s at stake here.” Got that? Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices will block privacy and security, free speech, freedom of worship, and restrict whom we love.
  • “Will we be a country where opportunity is limited to just the few at the top? Who are we? Or will we give every child a chance to succeed no matter where they’re from, or what they look like or how their money parents are – have. Who are we?” Another got that. Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices will see to it that opportunity is limited to just the few at the top.

So Michelle Obama will travel the country this election season to tell Americans just how bad it is. Unlike Ronald Reagan, who saw morning in America, Michelle Obama will tell all who will listen that Republicans want to poison the air and water, stifle free speech, oppress the religious. She will offer not an uplifting vision of what her husband’s America could be, but only a view of what Republicans’ America would be.

Traditionally, vice-presidential candidates have been the attack dogs in presidential campaigns. But, by using Michelle Obama this way, the Obama administration has struck an unprecedented low in partisanship and divisiveness.

But that’s just my opinion.

  1. DO YOU KNOW WHO THE “American” president IS? obama, is the son of satan: THE BEAST FROM THE SEA, The son of perdition, the lawless one, the NON-American.
    1And the dragon (OBAMA’S FATHER, SATAN) stood on the sand of the seashore.
    Then I saw a beast (OBAMA) coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were BLASPHEMOUS names. 2And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon (OBAMA’S FATHER) GAVE HIM HIS POWER (the U.S.A.) and his throne and great authority. 3I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and HIS FATAL WOUND was healed (take a look at obama’s HUGE SCAR from one side of his satanic head to his throat, on the other side). And THE WHOLE EARTH WAS AMAZED AND FOLLOWED AFTER THE BEAST (OBAMA); 4they WORSHIPED the dragon (SATAN) because he gave his authority to the beast (HIS SON, OBAMA); and they worshiped the beast (OBAMA), saying, “Who is like the beast (OBAMA), and who is able to wage war with him (against the U.S.A., the most POWERFUL COUNTRY?)” 5There was given to him a mouth speaking ARROGANT WORDS and BLASPHEMIES (to LIE, to make FALSE PROMISES and to talk a LOT of SATANIC KRAP. Remember” “YES, WE CAN”? Now he came up with a new “CAN’T WAIT slogan, coming “FROM BEHIND,” because he knows ALL his supporters have their HEADS STUCK UP THEIR BEHINDS. Quit that and SMELL REALITY, instead; smell HELL! SOBER UP! WAKE NOW. Time is SHORT! GET YOUR HEADS UP. LOOK UP!
    obama KNOWS HE HAS BUT LITTLE TIME TO FULFILL HIS SATANIC AGENDA. And he is BEHIND SCHEDULE! Even as the antichrist HE IS A HUGE FAILURE!!! ), and authority to act for forty-two months (THAT’S IT, not one minute more) was given to him. 6And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. DO NOT allow obama to TRICK or TREAT you.
    He will trick and treat you to HELL. IF ANYONE HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR.
    Once in HELL, will be TOO LATE. Wake up. obama is from HELL, born in KENYA.
    TO the BLIND, the DEAF and the DUMB: if you want to reply, go ahead. Make your day. If I were you, I’d rather spend my time getting straight with THE ALMIGHTY, the ONE WHO made your master. GOD BLESS YOU. HE IS waiting for YOU all. Hurry up. Our LORD is at the door. Wake up! obama is NOT an American. He is from HELL, not HAWAII.
    Receiving a letter or taking a check or whatever from obama means one thing and one thing only: YOU ARE SELLING YOUR SOUL TO SATAN, obama’s father.”
    You are COMMANDED to WATCH, not to FOLLOW the beast, 666. BEWARE, DO NOT allow obama to TRICK or TREAT you. THOSE WHO FALL IN HIS TRAP, HE IS GOING TO CHOP YOUR HEADS OFF. Stay away from obama, the beast, the antichrist. BEWARE, “obamacare” is the mark of the beast, 666 !!! DO NOT TAKE IT! It means HELL! DO NOT FORGET “we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits which are under Heaven.” KEEP IT IN MIND. YOU ARE BEING WARNED!!!
    If you’re STUPID, your NEGATIVE reply is very welcome. You have the right to be known, and don’t read the whole thing. It’s TOO much for your “eyes,” GOD BLESS YOU.
    HE IS waiting for ALL of HIS children to come to HIM in complete repentance and obedience. JESUS is at the door. Be ready to receive HIM, be prepared!
