As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle Obama Criticizes GOP in Congress for Being Too White

So what’s her point, exactly? We freely elect officials, there’s not a quota system for it in the Constitution that I’m aware of.

Mrs. Obama spoke at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women:

At the State of the Union address . . .  when you are in the room what you can see is this real dichotomy. It’s a feeling of color almost. On one side of the room is literally gray and white. Literally, that is the color palette on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone, because on one side all men, all white, on the other side some woman, some people of color . . . I look at that, and I go, no wonder. No wonder we struggle, no wonder people don’t trust politics. We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like.

If her point is that there aren’t enough black Republicans, well then we’re in complete agreement. Republican policies that expand economic growth and decrease dependency on the government are far better for African Americans than Democratic policies that have kept blacks mired in terrible economic conditions and helped foster the complete breakdown of the black family. Republicans do not do enough to convince minorities to support their ideology.

But of course, her point is that Republicans are a bunch of racists who don’t support “progressive” policies and they need to get over their hatred of blacks and start agreeing with her on the issues. And that’s yet another Obama – Barack and Michelle – racial polarization moment. The couple that could have done more than anyone to bring this country together have instead driven us apart.

A black president was elected. Though I opposed him and his policies, a small part of me was thrilled because I thought this might go a long way toward healing ancient divisions. But instead, the Obamas threw in with the racial grievance crowd, and a historic opportunity that would have diminished antagonisms and benefited African Americans the most was lost.

And she’s still at it, and they both will be for the next few decades, at great cost to the country, given their profiles.

Sure, there are some Republican racists. But ultimately Republicans don’t reach out enough to blacks because they just think, given how inevitable it seems African Americans will vote for Democrats, that it’s a waste of time and resources. Well, it’s not. Gaining just a few black votes will tip elections.

Republicans should get off their asses on this and point out that it was Democrats who were the backers of slavery, not Republicans, and that Democrats continue to enslave blacks today via the welfare state.

Once African Americans are convinced that conservatism is their salvation, the Republican side of the aisle will have a more diverse “pallette.” And Michelle, I’m sure, will be thrilled.

  1. This Black vs White racial business has been a constant theme for Michelle and, even at this late date, she continues the same convoluted and quirky analysis of racial issues going back all the way to her Princeton thesis. Now, as when she wrote her thesis, she doesn’t seem to be able to get past a childish, paranoid view of the world, and continues to contribute nothing but her twisted ravings about the “unfairness” of the situation–even after she’s been First Lady for eight years living in a White Palace and now lives a life of luxury, wealth and adulation from her admirers. She actually believes life has been unfair for her, even as she continues to demand her minions bow and scrape before her Majesty as she pronounces her opinions on all matters racial. What a narcissistic, self serving moon bat.

    • Michelle Obama is not very bright. She is bright enough, however, to profit from repeating the black separatist cant that still passes for cutting edge thought among the ignorant and the stupid.

      What she said is sexual and racial hate speech.

  2. Keith, you are so right.

    I recall what happened to Congressman Alan West of Florida when he served in the House. He was a black Republican. He joined the Congressional Black Caucus which was all Democrats.

    By tradition new members provide food for the group. He served Chick-fil-A. There was no criticism at the time. A few months later he received criticism for serving Chick-fil-A.

    As you say, Progressives will not accept anything else except their point of view.

  3. What an interesting and curious woman. Raised in a self-segregated city where her childhood was spent among mostly other Blacks, then off to Harvard where she was a definite minority must have been a shock that she hasn’t been able to overcome.
    She speaks to the Black theme that White men enact legislation to enhance other White men at the expense of Black men. She speaks to women and advises that only a woman could be fair and considerate of women’s issues, whatever the Dems consider them to be.
    These words she spoke at the conference were probably written by someone else. They might have been her thoughts, but we know she doesn’t articulate very well, no matter the topic. Harvard educated or no, she still speaks with the patois of the Black ghetto when she ad libs.
    I felt sorry for her when she was FLOTUS for many reasons, and still do. Now a wealthy Black former FLOTUS with healthy children she whines as if life dealt her the worst hand possible. Maybe if we knew her better, the real Michelle, we’d understand it all.

    • Michelle got into college because her brother was talented in sports and she was his legacy entry. She got a pricey job because her husband was Senator. She went to the White House because he became President. She has ridden the coattails of more successful men her entire life. She searches for the reason of her unease and failure to effect much with her own talents — must be racism and sexism.

      I don’t feel sorry for this common mind that was given extraordinary opportunities and retreated into old-fashioned, “Blame them.”

      • The “reason of her unease..”. Very insightful.
        From the time her husband was the Dem candidate, her minions did everything they could to diminish her or what she thought she was.
        No longer a Black woman from Chicago, she was made into a freakish, suburban mother figure whose only goal was a child’s health and a good veggie crop.
        She had her hair straightened, she wore lighter makeup, she was either a June Cleaver or a Beyoncé dresser… From simple shirtwaist dresses to off the shoulder tops and never got it right.
        She, not Barry, was the primary bread-winner for their family. He was a layabout who found ways to pass time with issues and ‘community organizing’ that never happened.
        He was elected Potus, SHE was his wife – nothing more.
        There’s lots there that her status reveals, but all we hear from and about her is the divisive statements she’s making.

        • Michelle called the WH shots – had a huge staff – had expert free advice on how to dress – if she got it wrong it’s her ego that tripped her up.

  4. We have to understand that there is a audience that waits and thirst for the pontifications from the Mooch, Barry and Hillary.
    Because whatever they spout, it is taken like communion.

  5. “Michelle Winnie Mandela Obama”- this, & all the lies her & B.O.’s god has fathered, is what the Only Side lives to out live both here & through Eternity!
