You probably heard quite a bit of sayings about Michelle Obama that you think might fit. This saying is the only one that's important: "FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA".!
10:56 PM on 01/24/2012
True, there have been a lot of sayings about her, and I'm sure many of them fit. I know one for sure does, but I'll keep that one to myself!!!

Eh. First Lady is a position. It doesn't guarantee respect, and I know that many people have zero respect for her, as well as her husband....me for one. Above and beyond everything else that the man and his wife stand for, I can't get over Obama voting AGAINST the "Born Alive Infant Protection Act". He voted for infanticide in case of a botched, failed abortion. Only a truly sorry person would vote FOR INFANTICIDE!

Saw your link ... thanks. However, that was during the last presidential election, it was a fair and balanced panel that discusses issues already in the news, and the woman who quoted it is the liberal member of the panel. The issue was in the national news at the time because of Ms. Obama's comments about being ashamed of her country. That Dems are trying to create racial and class warfare for election purposes is a fact. Fox reported the news, as did other news outlets.

At a certain point yesterday, there was one lie after another being told about what the First Lady said during the 2008 campaign. ALL of the lies were meant to portray her in the false light of being "unpatriotic," "hating America," "hating White people, " etc. It was like a white-supremacy home-coming here.

But it also showed just how the Conservative BIG LIE MACHINE works. First, they doctored the video back in 2008 to make it look like Ms. Obama said it was the first time she was ever proud of America. Then they spread the doctored video/transcript everywhere to push the lie, using "patriotism" to mask their white-supremacist hatred of the Obamas.

HERE'S THE VIDEO OF WHAT MICHELLE ACTUALLY SAID VERSUS THE RIGHT-WING LIE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ne1j4HWw_k

THEY CUT OUT the word, "REALLY" (meaning "especiall­y proud") in front of "PROUD" (IN OTHER TRANSCRIPTS THEY ALSO CUT OUT "ADULT" IN FRONT OF "LIFE"). If that one word, "REALLY" (and/or "ADULT") didn't make all the difference in her meaning, then why did the right-wing BIG LIE MACHINE edit it out and their tro//z still do so?

IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND THEY KNOW IT. BUT SOCIOPATHS DON'T HAVE A CONSCIENCE, SO THEY FEEL NO SHAME.

have you read her senior thesis at Princeton?

By the way....'having no shame' does not apply to the woman who was on the board of TreeHouse foods telling parents what they should feed their children?

Or having an executive position with the University of Chicago Medical Center before she campaigned for Healthcare Reform...?

Or dismissing the objections from her advisors on doing a spread for vogue during a deep recession by defending her agreement as "how often does a black woman get the cover of vogue?"

Or simply not being able to wait a few days to depart for Hawaii with the man that was actually entitled to the vacation....?

Cut the crap-tro//-tryin to spread your race-tinged Obama hatred with your right-wing talking points and orchestrated effort to smear and cast the First Lady and the Obamas in a false light. THAT's why you come onto HP and hurl your smears from behind the veneer of anonymity and the borrowed robes of self-righteousness. Get a life "jrwest78" - And that goes for your tro//-buddy "imlaughlin" and bearing of false witness as well.

Other media outlet have the same video as the one you claim Fox News "doctored." Suggest the one doing the "doctoring" on this issue may be you.

Nice try tro//. Here's what I said: "But it also showed just how the Conservati­ve BIG LIE MACHINE works. First, they doctored the video back in 2008 to make it look like Ms. Obama said it was the first time she was ever proud of America. Then they spread the doctored video/tran­script everywhere to push the lie, using "patriotis­m" to mask their white-supr­emacist hatred of the Obamas."

OF COURSE OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS HAVE THE DOCTORED VIDEO. THIS WAS A MASSIVE FRAUD PERPETRATED ON AMERICA BY THE "CONSERVATIVE BIG LIE MACHINE" AND ITS SUPPORTERS - PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF WHO HIDE BEHIND ANONYMITY AND THEN BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST PEOPLE LIKE ME!

As a black woman I have to say this. I have seen White women at work yell, throw things, scream and cry, always with the crying when they want something. People, ignore, express concern, and coo over them. "what's wrong" "oh She's mad" etc/ If I or any black woman even raises their tone, not their voice just their tone, people get defensive, angry, fearful. I would challenge any white person to spend a day if they could as a black person. They would not believe what we have to put up with as for daily double standards and the constraints on expressing your self as a human being, of course some people question our humanity. If you have to live in these shoes for a year, likely you'd be throwing maltov cocktails as people and places.
11:36 PM on 01/12/2012
You said a mouth full! Thanks!!

I have seen women of all backgrounds express anger. And might I add,
white women, not all, (so please, no one throw stones my way)
can be so evil at times!!
I have seen that with my own eyes.

Black women are not the only ones with issues,
folks really need to stop with that nonsense!

You think it's bad now? Try being reincarnated as a young black male and you won't even get the side benefits of femininity before someone calls the cops on you or works behind the scenes to keep you ostracized and jobless because your voice and presence is intimidating.

Better than a woman who supports him, loves him has his back. Cares for his children, is educated in he r own right, who financially carried them to get him to his dreams has put her's aside. Who is a warm brown skinned woman with a fit body and sound mind. Really better?
02:54 PM on 01/13/2012
Totally see your point. I can do one better! Not only cares for HIS children, but she carried THEIR children in her womb for nine months and then gave birth to them! She's not a "supermodel" but there's nothing wrong with her looks. Even supermodels are often not so "super" when they're not all dolled up.

I just love when people who have gone through nothing or know nothing about a situation, try to tell someone else how they should feel. Please sit down.

No other first lady has been disrespected like Mrs. Obama. Don’t bring up SP or Michele Bachmann because they are politicians. She is someone’s wife who is in office; that does not make her fair game. For those claiming it’s about policy, what does that have to do with her? There have always been presidents who had policy others did not agree with, people didn’t attack their wives.

As a black woman who laughs and smiles, who is also sometimes soft spoken. This thread is making me angry. Run for the hills! Right…
11:37 PM on 01/12/2012
I agree. I think folks should really lay off the First Lady and get a life!
peace
03:19 PM on 01/12/2012
I believe she's doing a fantastic job all the way around. I just wanna know one thing. Who does her make-up?? She could look a whole lot better. She needs to soften the lines, especially those eyebrows. lol.

Michelle Obama appears to be a beautiful, independent, caring woman with a mind of her own - - some people don't like that and translate it into anger. Too bad! Then of course, the folks who don't like any minority "beating out" a rich, white, staight male" (as our POTUS did,) will get into the act and add "black woman" thus arriving at at the phrase "angry black woman." If we really see who seems to be threatened by a smart, independent, compassionate black woman, we will know why & where this phrase originated.

Oh please! Most everyone worships her and looks up to her as some rich, fabulous super-being! I don't even want to hear it! Just like any other celebrity whining.
03:05 PM on 01/13/2012
Whining? Someone wrote a book saying some not very nice things about her and her relationship with her husband and some other people involved with him in his presidency. You do realize that when that happens, reporters and journalists are clamoring to SEEK OUT opinions from her because they can then write articles like this one and get people like you to comment on it?
02:59 PM on 01/12/2012
After reading all the ugly/racist/political correct comments on this post, now I know who I will be voting for in November......drum roll please.......BARACK OBAMA!
02:58 PM on 01/12/2012
What I'd like to know is: Why are we woman criticized when we're angry?! Anger is a normal human emotion. The key is how we behave when we're angry. It's ok for men to show anger but it's a whole other story when it's a woman!
03:06 PM on 01/13/2012
So true! I guess instead of just sounding a little bit irrational or emotional when we're angry (ISN'T ANGER AN EMOTION???) we should just get violent instead! That's the stereotypical "man's way".

If she' angry, by now she's earned the right to be. I have never heard of a president and his wife being so blatantly disrespect­ed. I've never heard of a president'­s wife's butt being publicly discussed, (regardles­s of how flat or wide it was), her picture being compared to the "Grinch", or everything either said or done being attacked. But through it all, they have remained humble. Through America eyes, every Black person should be proud of this country and happy to be here. A country that dragged their ancestors here, killed hundreds of thousands in doing so; the country that rapped our ancestor's wives and daughters, snatched their husbands and sons out of their homes, and beat or killed them in front of their families. The country that deprived Blacks of everything from an education to the simple use of public water fountains and bathrooms, then instilled it into their offsprings­. A country that continues to profits from, and enjoy the luxuries of so many things that our ancestors paid for with their blood and sweat. Indeed, a country that ALL Blacks should be proud of. And then you people have the audacity to get upset because she's tired of your hatred? You've got the gall to be upset because they're living in a HOUSE that THEIR ancestors built? Please!! When it's all said and done, it's nothing but your deep-roote­d racism that most of you just simply can't help. Go ahead, get angry, "Mrs. YoMama"!

Rubbish, Jasel! Nancy Reagan freely exercised her First Lady prerogatives in the White House -- much to the annoyance and disgust of many staffers, including top dog Donald Regan. I don't recall her being labelled an 'angry white woman'. She was called other names, perhaps, but not Angry White Woman.

No one ever suggested that Nancy Reagan or any of the other First Ladies were descended from gorillas. Nancy Reagan was lauded in some circles for her defense of her husband. That gorilla remark was just one sample of the insults that have been directed at Mrs. Obama that are clearly racial.

To clarify: That Mrs. Obama is implied to be an Angry Black Woman is clearly stereotypical. As I said above, Mrs. Reagan was reported to be quite imperious, pushy, and not shy about exercising her powers as First Lady, or crushing those whom she felt were a threat to the President. Yet she was not called Angry White Woman -- other things yes -- but not Angry White Woman.
