Michelle Obama's "combination of bitterness, ingratitude, anti-Americanism, leftism, and, yes, elitism rubs a lot of people the wrong way."

Ramesh Ponnuru reviews the evidence and opines that "it would be remarkable if people weren't criticizing her."

Does anyone actually take Michelle's complaints seriously? I know some Democrats *claim* to be offended by the criticism of her, but is anyone actually offended?

Attack Michelle-Nobelle? Racist!

Chet said...

Just you wait. You ain't heard nothin' yet. Once she becomes First Lady and really gets going, with her daily maudlin drivel about all the underprivileged, malnourished American children...

....with their cell-phones and iPods. The DEPRIVATION !!!!!

I just just love how invoking the plight of children, immediately gives the speaker instant moral authority !!!!

I want my photo taken with a handicapped child. Will that soften my image and make me impervious to ridicule ???

When a woman poses for a picture with an underprivileged child....she becomes a Saint.

When a man poses for a picture with an underprivileged child.....he becomes a Pervert.

She's borrowing a page out of Hillary's playbook. You can't criticize anyone who fights for CHILDREN !!!

Hillary and The Children's Defense Fund....how dare anyone say anything against someone who cares so much about Children's Rights !!!!

fcai said...

I think her bitteness, ingratitude and anti-Americanism resonate with an enormous number of people. Where I live she is a role model among those who hate this country.

Trooper York said...

We also offer a limited selection of children’s clothing from Dream Sacks which produces all of it's clothing from Bamboo. The Bamboo silk produces a butter soft garment that only improves and gets softer and nicer after every wash. Just in case Michelle wants to do something really nice for the children.

Gritting my old teeth in order to refrain from the obvious snide remark or two, I have been wondering for a while how Michelle, with her thin veneer over what appears to be a deep reservoir of anger and resentment, could be married to BH Obama with his very different public persona. In most marriages that kind of difference, if real, would doom the relationship, probably before it ever got off the ground in the first place.

Trooper York said...

The glue that holds the Obama marriage together is of course her fashion sense that lent itself to favoring garments that can be found in such fun and fashion forward boutiques as Lee Lees Valise. Having a stylish woman on his arm is one of the few actual achievements that Senator Obama can actually claim with a straight face. He is extremely lucky to have such a fashion plate on the platform with him to distract the crowd from his threadbare foreign policy.

Now if I can only get her to try on the new Olivia Harper Snakeskin Trench coat (which will be featured in Septembers Essence Magazine, and which is available exclusively at Lee Lee's).

Well, either Michelle is not the resentful elitist bitch she appears to be, or Barack is not the sweet, honey-dripping, equinanimous character Team Axelrod has shaped him to appear as - but a pushed around milksop who was told that bossy, loud, resentful bitches are "normal and black-authentic as hell".

Trooper York said...

Well if Senator Obama is indeed a "pushed around milksop" who is afraid of his more dominant spouse, I would venture to say that his best bet is to purchase some unique and fashion forward garments that will show how much he cares. The purchase of some Prima Donna lingerie would also spice up his sex life which must have been interrupted by his constant campaigning. If his campaign bus would happen to pass by Lee Lee's Valise I would be happy to show him a matching Bra and Panty from Belgium (Prima Donna) which is comfortable, flattering and extremely sexy all in one well crafted hand sewn package. It they are going to get their panties in a twist, it behooves them to get the best.

Come on PR, show us what you've got. Michelle wouldn't expect anything less.

Chet said...

It's very simple, she plays Bad Cop to his Good Cop. It's very similar to Nancy Reagan.

How could someone as amiable and charming as President Regean be married to a dragon lady like Nancy ?

But, at least Nancy Reagan was a better actress, and not so overt at aspirations of being a Petticoat President.

Randy said...

Attacking a candidate's wife rarely pays the expected dividend. Ask those who have spent the past eight years accusing Laura Bush of vehicular manslaughter.

Mr. Rod Pumpernickel said...

Well, nobody ever attacked Pat Nixon. Not a bad word ever said about her, and look what happened.

If Laura had spent her time in the public eye Novaking her way through the streets of Washington those accusations would have gotten more traction. :)

Hillary started off her time in the national eye sneering at the idea of traditional motherhood. It took her years to live that down, but she eventually did... because she quit saying that stuff in public. If Michelle wants to shake her rep as a bitter and ungrateful elitist, she might want to start by keeping her big yap shut for a while.

"If Michelle wants to shake her rep as a bitter and ungrateful elitist"

She should simply spruce up her wardrobe with the new Lisa wrap dress with the art deco print that all the girls are talking about. It is a full wrap made in a rich Italian fabric which has extra fabric so that it doesn't come apart as so many wrap dresses do. It has a fitted bodice with a flattering A-line and a wrap that flatters you if you are an apple or a pear. And at a very economical $148.00 it will quickly put to rest those unfortunate rumors that you are an elitist snob. Perfect for visiting third world dictators without preconditions or collecting inflated salaries from influence peddling special interests, it is a multi purpose garment that would show you to be a woman of the people. The featured garment at leeleesvalise.com this month. If you buy it Michelle, you will be grateful indeed.

All the best, your friend and admirer Trooper.

Yes siree bob - if she doesn't play the game the way we want her to - that ungrateful so-and-so. We'll show her. She's no Nancy, Pat or Laura, that' for sure. God, she actually has opinions and speaks her mind. That elitist bit...

Trooper York said...

“Yes siree bob - if she doesn't play the game the way we want her to - that ungrateful so-and-so. We'll show her. She's no Nancy, Pat or Laura “

But she could remind everyone of Jackie Kennedy if she were to purchase an Anna Scholz white hound’s tooth swing coat in the sparkling checkerboard pattern that is all the rage for the fall. The leopard lining alone would quiet her critics who would be so enamored of her fashion forward sensibility that the would ignore picayune policy differences. Soon to be featured in the fall collection just in time to be worn if there is a chill in the air when voting in Chicago in November. Since it is traditional to vote several times in the City of Big Shoulders, it behooves all such voters to have warm and stylish attire to ward off the chill from the lakeside winds.

Just looking out for you Michelle, your friend and admirer, Trooper.

matthew said...

Ingratitude? Who (or what) is she supposed to be grateful to? That doesn't even make sense...

Actually, bitterness or anti-Americanism don't make much sense either. To me, she comes of as a whiney princess - which is not at all the same as bitter, anti-american, or ungrateful.

His observations of leftism and elitism are spot on though.

And Ramesh is right. Michelle Obama and her husband DO rub a lot of people the wrong way. But they also rub a lot of people the right way. Which is why it's quite likely she'll be the first lady in the near future.

And they also love to rub each other in that special way when Michelle is wearing the sexy bamboo silk robe available from Bed Head sleepwear. If Michelle were to open the compartment of the campaign airplane simply wearing this robe and a smile when Barack came back from a long day of campaigning, you can be sure that the happy couple would soon be rubbing each other in exactly the right way.

Available in 100% silk in gold, black and of course a very sexy red. One size fits all.

Just hoping to keep it fresh and exciting for you in your busy life Michelle, you friend and admirer, Trooper.

Harsh Pencil said...

Dear Trooper,

Welcome Back! I missed you.

P. Rich said...

Trooper

Your fashion sense does amaze and delight.

Trooper York said...

I been writing copy for the website for 48 hours straight and I can't get out of the mode.... aahhhhhhhhh.

PatCA said...

Et tu, Trooper?!

I thought I knew ya...

Trooper York said...

Errrrrr, just to let you know, all items referred to above are actual garments that are indeed available for your fashion pleasure. Specializing in sizes 10 to 28. We fit your style.

Seven Machos said...

28?

Trooper York said...

Yes indeedy.

Trooper York said...

I know a size 28 with a hour glass figure and a personality to match that would knock your sox off. You would have to be Seven Muy Machos to handle it buddy.

That would be the awning in front of Lee Lee's Valise that is actually combed coarse (but soft as a baby's bottom) Thai silk that is actually an unstitched size 28 Teddy. Available in robins egg blue, lemon sandstone yellow, and fire engine (5 alarm!) read because you will have a size 28 bonfire to put out once you forklift that Teddy into her apartment.
Comes with matching color French silk Panties, or with the classic French lace trim and country cream
natural silk color.

It is my experience too, that big women more often than not have big strong beautiful personalities, and so do women with huge Roman noses like the bow of an icebreaker ship.

Trooper York said...

And Cedarford they would rock you world buddy. Those personalities will whip your contary ass into shape, and you will love it!

God, she actually has opinions and speaks her mind.

Everyone has opinions. Part of politics is knowing when not to share them.

Michelle is, at heart, pretty much an obnoxious bitch. She's welcome to share that fact with America; she'd just be smarter not to.

blake said...

Say, I wonder where an average guy--a regular joe like myself--could find tips on helping large, beautiful women fit their bras properly?

Anyone have any ideas?

Anyone at all?

Trooper York said...

Why I believe you might have to peruse the webcast on leeleesvalise.com.

While you are there, you might also view the interesting dicussions of how to pack for vacation and how to pick out swinwear. And I know that Blake would really like to know how to tie his sarong properly. You never know when you might be called to be an extra on a Road to Tahiti movie.

blake said...

Why, thanks, Trooper York! I'll head right over!
