Right Wing Attacks Michelle Obama


When it comes to writing opinion about what is happening in our nation it is fair game to attack, ridicule, even call the President foul names and degrade him. Hell, I’ve called George W. Bush more names than I can think of but never, not even once, not even one single post, have I ever thought to attack his wife simply because she is his wife. Former First Lady Laura Bush didn’t run for Governor and she didn’t run for President. She was simply married to a man that won both political offices and in my book she was first class. I was very proud to have her representing my country, our country, as our First Lady.

In politics, you can hate the messenger, love the messenger, and even be enthralled or disgusted with the person in charge of our nation. They are fair game to attack and outright beat up in the press and all across the internet. Not for a minute is it okay to attack, ridicule, or degrade his spouse for political opinion gamesmanship. Take for instance this ass over at Town Hall.com, Burt Prelutsky, that thinks its okay to go so far as calling the First Lady, Michelle Obama, a racist. Over at the Huffington Post they had some strong words and quotes that I didn’t happen to find in the Prelutsky piece but it could have been edited out since the post was put up on TownHall.com? Here is what is currently up on Town Hall from Burt…

It’s not just the politicians, but also their mates, so long as they’re Democrats, who get the star treatment. Take Michelle Obama…please. Every time I turn around, there she is on a magazine cover. Now, normally, like the Mafia, I lay off the spouses, but inasmuch as this particular spouse attended the same racist church as her hubby for 20 years, I’ll make an exception in her case. After all, in spite of the fact that affirmative action got her an Ivy League degree and a $7,000-a-week salary and, moreover, has sent billions of dollars for no particularly good reason to Africa, she insists this is a mean country.

Naturally, the left-wing media is now trying to convince us that this James Brown-look-alike has all the allure, glamour and fashion sense of Jackie Kennedy. I have even heard her upper arms described in the sort of language Wordsworth devoted to flowers in the morning dew and that Keats lavished on nightingales. Frankly, if I were Mrs. Obama and the geeks started rhapsodizing about my triceps, I might consider wearing sleeves.

Now here is what was posted over at the Huffington Post as a quote? These two things don’t match up? But the intent and attack is clear on Michelle Obama as the target of hate.

The burning question in my circle is: if the First Family gets a female dog, will she be the First Bitch or will she have to settle for second place? - Huffington Post

Personally, I don’t care what side of the political aisle you sit or hail from, you just don’t attack the President of the United States wife, AKA the First Lady. It’s just rude, ignorant, and shows that you have no argument to forward your personal political objective. Then again, I’m just a liberal blogger with some common sense ethics that were instilled into me as a child growing up, you never hit a girl, and you are always respectful to ladies. I used to think that Republican’s raised their children in the same way but I just might be wrong. No disrespect intended to Republican mom’s married to an ass.

Thus I end this post with a well intentioned “Screw You” Burt Prelutsky. He’s probably just pissed off that Michelle Obama looks a hell of a lot better in her dress than he does.

Just one additional thought, Michelle Obama is a knock out! Barack is one lucky man to have such a beautiful wife and friend. Oh, and Burt, you don’t want to mention the Mafia in an article or those pesky FBI and Secret Service guys and gals will want to know what you know and when you knew it. AKA Kennedy conspiracy theories.

Well, a lot of people made fun of Laura Bush too. Sauce for the goose, etc.

I guess saying something about something someone said, but people are attacking Michelle for no other reason than to take a stab at Barack. I think Michelle represents a new era in First Ladies. She is modern, holding down her own in life, raising a family and holding them tight together. More power to her for being so busy and looking great doing it.

The HuffPost comment was the original Townhall post. Your version is the edited version posted after HuffPost drew attention to the female dog reference.

Ya know how it is when that green eyed monster called jealousy eats away at the inner being of those too lazy to get off their duff and do something constructive. They project their feelings onto other people instead of straightening out the kinks in their own lives.

Tiny thinks we have a model first lady who puts family first and does other constructive things to show others how to get involved in their families and communities. Thank the Powers That Be that we have a role model in the White House in both the President and the First Lady worthy to be imulated for the betterment of human kind.

Perhaps she will be instrumental in getting people off their seat-of-do-nothing to plant a garden to help sustain them through the rough times this country has been catapulted into. Multiple opportunities loom before us for each to take constructive action instead of throwing rocks at those who are.

Thanks for laying it on them for their negativity. They need a good tongue lashing.

Sue, I love your passion, I really do. I would never ban you my friend ever. Just like I would never ban anyone from this site. We talk the issues and we agree or just simply have a different perspective. You were truly in the heat of the momment and I can really understand your position.

Argue, Vent, SCREAM if you want on any issue here. I just have to be the big old bad Papamoka and make sure everyone is welcome to vent. Pro or con. And I give this little speech to everyone that attacks anyone personally. No offense intended on ya hon. ;)
