Barack Obama Says: "Lay Off My Gloomy Wife!"
We’ve heard this line before…
This time Barack Obama says the GOP is “using snippets” of Michelle Obama’s depressing remarks to paint her as someone who is “not patriotic.”
(Who said anything about Michelle Obama’s patriotism?)
Barack whined on Good Morning America that the GOP was distorting his wife’s gloomy message.
Here’s a couple of Michelle Obama “snippets” that Barack was whining about today:
Can Obama still claim his wife’s depressing message is being distorted when she keeps repeating it?
Here are a few other snippets:
** Michelle Obama Decides After 44 Years She Finally Can Stomach the US
** Michelle Obama’s “Proud of My Country” Twofer (Video)
** Michelle Obama: “We’re a Country That’s Downright Mean”
** Oops!… She Did It Again- Michelle Obama Bashes Ignorant America! (Video)
** “You’re alone in your failure.” (Get me more white people!)
** “We’re Guided By Fear… We’re a Nation of Cynics, Sloths and Complacents”
–Of course these were just other attempts to distort what Michelle Obama had said, too.
ABC News reported on Barack getting tough with the enemy GOP:
The Republicans seem to have come to the same conclusion and a GOP Internet campaign in Tennessee has an ad featuring Michelle Obama’s comments during the long Democratic campaign that “for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country.”
Michelle Obama was asked about the ad on “GMA,” but her husband said, “Let me just interject on this.”
“The GOP, should I be the nominee, I think can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record,” Obama said. “I’ve been in public life for 20 years. I expect them to pore through everything that I’ve said, every utterance, every statement. And to paint it in the most undesirable light possible. That’s what they do.”
“But I do want to say this to the GOP. If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful. Because that I find unacceptable,” he said.
Obama praised his wife’s patriotism and said that for Republicans “to try to distort or to play snippets of her remarks in ways that are unflattering to her I think is just low class … and especially for people who purport to be promoters of family values, who claim that they are protectors of the values and ideals and the decency of the American people to start attacking my wife in a political campaign I think is detestable.”
Funny Barack said the same thing about Jeremiah Wirght’s remarks, too.
Obama said those nasty comments were just cherry-picked, too.
** If Barack wants people to lay off his wife– maybe he should keep her away from the microphone?
Michelle Malkin has more on Barack’s tantrum.
UPDATE: Barack also called the Tennessee GOP- “low class.”
UPDATE 2: Larry Johnson says Obama is freaking out because he knows there’s video of Michelle out there of Michelle Obama in the pulpit of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church railing against “whitey.”
