Michelle is really full of herself. She and her husband are really full of hubris. Not even the Clintons were this presumptuous.

Yeah! Whatís wrong with those black people acting all educated and running a political campaign like so many before them? Who do they think they are using the same system and political tricks that has been used for decades? Donít they know that all black people commit all the crime in this country and that they should be doing the same? Doesnít Michelle know that she should be strung out on drugs and on welfare? Who the hell does she think she is with her Ivy League degree and opinions? Why doesnít she go bear some b*stard children that become dealers and gang bangers so that we can all complain about that. Jeez these people have a lot of nerve!

And what's with that name? Michelle. Doesn't she know that her name is supposed to be Lucretia or something with a La in it? She's so dang uppity!

Who does she think she's fooling we all know she pops gum all day and can't talk without rolling her neck. You know like all black people.

What I can't figure out is how can she be a Muslim and eat pig feet. You know because all black people eat that stuff.

Did she talk about how she has never been proud of America until her husband 'Barry' became the Democratic nominee?

Did she talk about how she was 'affirmative actioned' into Princeton?

By that affirmative action she has received more from this country than I ever have or ever will....

Haters, be they black or white, make me sick. Until you have spent much time with others (blacks if you are white, whites if you are black) how can you even think that you can generalize about people you know nothing about.
When my brother was a young teen, he made some pretty racist comments to me about blacks in general. I brought up a couple of my black friends, who were the opposite of his narrow view, and asked what about them. He commented that they were cool, and not like that at all. He could not name any black people that he knew that fit his idea of black people. I simply laughed and told him "I get it, you know all of the good black people, but all those others that you don't know are the horrible ones." He didn't have anything else to say, he got the message.

Ya right,
If you want to argue the affirmative action angle you are giving an exmaple of why it works. She got a chance to go to an Ivy League school and what did she do with it? If she was not qualified to be there how did she manage to graduate AND pass the bar?
It amazes me how many ankle biters are out there.

so why is she always complaining about how horrible and mean the USA is?

she had the privilege of going to ivy league schools, she had a job at a hospital which paid her 300,000 a year. He husband was a state senator and yet she complains how the US is a mean country full of lazy selfish people which hold women and blacks down.

please explain.

I'm not "Obamified" and I won't be voting for him, but taking really unnecessary jabs at his wife when she is discussing her family and her views on how to deal with daily life is below the belt. I too don't believe that I like her, but then I've never met her and talked with her as a person. She may be a fine lady and my opinion might change my mind given the opportunity. I also don't like some of the things she has said in her past, but I bet we all have a few things we'd like to forget too.

She is under a magnifying glass right now and I imagine that is not a very comfortable place to be. Let's try to stop all this racist crap and stick to the details of politics, not what your great-grandparents thought of people of color.
