Remember when Barack Obama demanded the media "lay off my wife?" And, of course they did, along with an onset of slobbering articles to please their guy? All the magazine covers of the happy family, until they decided not to pimp out the two little girls for publicity. All the fawning pictures of Michelle adoringly looking at her husband. All the halo light shots of their candidate.
In contrast, failing old times outlets, like The New York Times, runs fake scandals about John McCain's marriage and trashes Cindy McCain. How dare she be a successful business woman not enamoured with Washington, D.C's political social scene. How dare she return to Arizona as a young married woman and raise a family outside of the world of D.C. How dare she do charity work and not be a publicity hog all these years. A current article in the NYT is the latest of their hatchet job on Cindy McCain. How proud of themselves they must be. I bet Michelle sends over a fruit basket.
Or, maybe Michelle Obama will send over some of that caviar and lobster she ordered up from room service at the Waldorf the other day as she camped out in the Presidential suite. Just a regular 4:00 snack. How about if Cindy McCain had done that?
The McCain's 16 year old daughter's friends were questioned by the NYT via their facebook accounts. How lovely. Wonder how their parents feel about that?
Michelle Obama, who introduced Barack Obama to the Rev. Wright and his black liberation church in Chicago recently phoned up the African Press International to chastise them for not being loyal enough to Barack' s quest for the White House. Again, Michelle Obama exposes the racist side to her personality. This is obviously something deep inside her and she lives with this train of thought. She is the one to first introduce race into the presidential campaign, you'll remember, back when the primaries were getting underway. "Barack can get shot, as a black man in America, just going to the gas station." Yeah, she's a beaut. And, then, the Obama campaign, led by the Chosen One himself, painted Bill Clinton as a racist and claimed Republicans were racists and would lie about him with the truth.
It's quite the scam the Obamas have going. Smooth, no emotions in public. Just smiling and using the fake folksy talk to the minions. Even Colin Powell has sold himself out now, in his waning days in the spotlight. How sad for him to go out like this. If he truly wanted to support Obama he would have done so in the beginning. We all know he feels bitter and betrayed by the Bush administration. We know he respects and admires John McCain. We know, from campaign finance records, that Powell contributed the max individual contribution allowed to McCain, not to Obama as the race progressed. If he just wanted change and judgement he would be still supporting McCain. But, as soon as he said it wasn't about race, he blew his game. What a wonderful lifetime serving his country to go down like this. Wonder if Michelle called him.
Every election is change. Obama had to choose Biden for the heft of his foreign policy experience. Biden has been on the wrong side of history every time, but never mind that. Now, Powell wants to give him an added boost after Joe the plumber exposed Obama's insane economic policies - redistribution of wealth, and raising taxes in this financial climate. Simply by allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire, as Obama has promised to do, the average family will see taxes go up. But, I hate to bring common sense into this election.
Michelle Obama, the Closer, was earlier in the campaign in charge of setting the talking points of the day on the trail. She told audiences she has never been proud of her country until her husband was doing well in this race, that America is a mean country, and that she's just a regular working mom. No wonder her eyes are brown.
In an interesting post on Rudi Stettner's blog, he writes of an account from African Press International (API) concerning a recent phone call from Michelle Obama.
"African Press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view," and she went to state that, "It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband". He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that give him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telephone to API." "It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband."
API is "an international news agency headquartered in Norway with 19 corespondents in North, East, West and Sough Africa as well as in the United Kingdom. It is widely respected for its political independence and even handedness." That description from Rudi Stettner.
"According to the respected pan African blog "Accusing API of colluding with American Internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs. Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API's help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black man's name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with."
According to API Mrs. Obama asked API to write a good story about her husband and that will earn API an invitation to inauguration ceremony when, as she put it, her husband will be installed as the next President of the United States of American next year."
Clearly, the south side politics of a racist Michelle Obama didn't make a good impression to the news agency. The scolding didn't set well.
"The API article has made a number of things clear. First Michelle Obama definitely is a player in the campaign. She seems to have settled on the role of bringing out the African American vote not on grounds of the issues but of racial solidarity. Her nervousness opens the legitimate questions about friends in the Kenyan government possibly helping to silence an American journalist."
I guess Colin Powell really wanted tickets to the inauguration ceremony. He's proven his racial loyalty now.
