Oh Brother!… Media Blames Rightwingers For Michelle Obama's Gloominess
Oh brother… The media has decided to come to the aid of bitter American Michelle Obama and is blaming her many gloomy anti-American statements on conservatives.
In this video perky Michelle Obama admitted it was “the first time she was proud of her country” twice in the same day while campaigning for her husband:
The media comes to gloomy Michelle Obama’s defense today and slams conservatives for pointing out her outrageous comments.
ABC News reported:
Like Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton before her, Michelle Obama is becoming the would-be first lady conservatives love to hate.
The conservative National Review recently showed a stern-faced Michelle Obama on its cover, under the headline, “Mrs. Grievance.” The Tennessee Republican Party questioned her patriotism.
Michelle Obama has become a favorite target for critics, drawing many to compare her arrival on the national stage to Hillary Clinton’s after she infuriated conservatives when she said, “I could have stayed home and baked cookies.”
It’s likely to get worse.
“It’s going to be very ugly stuff,” Democratic strategist Tad Devine said. “They’re going to try to depict her as someone who is angry, outside the mainstream and not proud to be an American.”
How did a 44-year-old Harvard Law School graduate become so demonized? One reason is the increasingly viral quality of the Internet.
“In an environment now that is increasingly polarizing and nasty, charges can be made, often unsubstantiated charges through the Web,” said Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the Rothenberg Political Report. “We’re in an environment now where being a first lady is a lot tougher job than it used to be.”
Google “Michelle Obama” and the term “whitey” and you’ll find conservative bloggers (and others) claiming a video shows her using the racially tinged term at Trinity Church. No tape has ever surfaced. But the claim helped prompt the Obama campaign to launch its own Web site, FighttheSmears.com.
Much of the criticism stems from Michelle Obama’s artless statement early in the campaign that, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I’m really proud of my country.”
The campaign immediately clarified that to say that she meant she was prouder than ever.
Even with help from the media, Michelle Obama may want to keep clear from any bus stops just to be on the safe side.
