I thought she did an excellent job last night, as did most of the pundits who I've heard talk about it. Many in the audience were moved to tears, as was Juan Williams.

Very moving performance, just what she needed to do.

Why didn't she mention her Princeton and Harvard cred? Afraid to appear elitist? It was a transparent makeover designed to bullsh*t the public. Juan Williams, the pundits and you are just blowing sunshine up each other's skirts.

Hooray for Hollywood
That screwy, ballyhooey Hollywood
Where any office boy or young mechanic
Can be a panic, with just a goodlooking pan
Where any barmaid can be a star maid
If she dances with or without a fan

Hooray for Hollywood
Where you're terrific, if you're even good
Where anyone at all from TV's Lassie
To Monroe's chassis is equally understood
Go out and try your luck, you might be Donald Duck
Hooray for Hollywood

Hooray for Hollywood
That phoney, super coney Hollywood
They come from Chillicothes and Padukahs
With their bazookas to get their names up in lights
All armed with photos from local rotos
With their hair in ribbons and legs in tights

Hooray for Hollywood
You may be homely in your neighborhood
But if you think that you can an actor
See Mr. Factor, he'd make a monkey look good
With a half an hour, you'll look like Tyrone Power
Hooray for Hollywood

Given she earned her way through both institutions and wasn't a legacy like the current moron occupying the oval office, she should be admired by anyone who understands how difficult higher education is to complete and pay for (especially these two institutions). I may not agree with some people's opinions, thoughts, ideas, etc. but I certainly try not to put down those who are self-made, regardless of our individual differences. It seems to me that's a big part of why we are so divided in this country. We refuse to recognize the good in people even when it's obvious and right in our face.

She may have her good points but she and her husband and their enablers are trying to turn this country into the People's Republic of America. Forgive me but I don't want to have to call my neighbor, or the dry-cleaner, Comrade.

Did you read this?

I didn't as it is rather long, and I'm not that interested, but I didn't see anything at all in the title that suggested this was about racial divide.

This is her under-graduate thesis, and the title is "Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Community."

A speech by a candidates wife will do nothing to sway my decision on who I vote for. Neither will Hillary or Bill's speeches. All I want to know is which candidate can fix the myriad of problems our country face following eight years of complete failure and incompetance by the Bush and Cheney administration. I certainly will vote for whoever is the most different than Bush and Cheney on 99% of the issues. I agree with them on very, very few things like partial birth abortion and illegal immigration and not much else.

So do you agree she is a bright, hard working women who earned the success and status she now holds? Is that what you're saying when you state "She may have her good points..." Secondly, do you honestly believe Barak Obama is a communist? If so, I'm curious as to where you're getting such an idea. Please elaborate....If you have evidence then by god he must be stopped. After all, my biggest fear for our country after eight years of Bush and Cheney is that communism may take hold and totally destroy the American way of life!!!!!!! And if there's one man who could do it, and accomplish it in four years, it must be Obama (sarcasm intended)...

Interesting read. Consider the source, though. I bold fonted the parts as they were bolded in the online article. There are active links in the article so you may just want to go ahead and read the article from the link. ~ BDOB

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/p-j-gladnick/2008/10/15/will-msm-investigate-a lleged-angry-phone-call-michelle-obama-african-p

Will MSM Investigate Alleged Angry Phone Call by Michelle Obama to African Press International?

So far this story about Michelle Obama's temper tantrum when she called African Press International (API) hasn't been reported by the mainstream media but it is a very hot topic in the Blogosphere. Your humble correspondent checked on the credentials of API and it has been in existence for a little over two years and has filed numerous stories in that period. Additionally, this story has been posted at World Net Daily. If the MSM wants to verify this story they can contact API directly to investigate its veracity. Perhaps they don't want to check out this story because Michelle Obama comes off with an extreme case of bad temper. This API article starts out with Michelle article making accusations of disloyalty against that organization in a phone call (emphasis mine):

Accusing API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API’s help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black man’s name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.

When API told her that our online news media was only relaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: “African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” and she went to state that, “it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telefon to API.”

Wow! Talk about a red hot temper! But will the MSM even ask Michelle Obama about this? This article is chock full of more shocking information:

This is a very interesting turn of events. The American man Dr Corsi was recently reported to have been arrested in Kenya because there was fear that he might reveal information on Obama when he wanted to hold a press conference in Nairobi.

The question now is why he was arrested and who ordered his arrest. Was Obama’s hand in this in any way? We will never know the truth but what is clear is that Dr Corsi was seen as a threat while in Kenya.

When API asked Mrs Obama to comment on why Dr Corsi was arrested by the Kenyan government and whether she thought Kenya’s Prime Minister Mr Raila Odinga was involved in Dr Corsi’s arrest, she got irritated and and simply told API not to dig that which will support evil people who are out to stop her husband from getting the presidency.

When asked who she was referring to as the evil people, she stated that she was not going to elaborate much on that but that many conservative white people and even some African Americans were against her husband, but that this group of blacks were simply doing so because of envy.

On Farakhan and his ministry, Mrs Obama told API that it was unfortunate that Mr Farakhan came out the way he did supporting her husband openly before the elections was over.
That was not wholehearted support but one that was calculated to convince the American people that my husband will support the growth of muslim faith if he became the president, adding “even if my husband was able to prove that he is not a Muslim, he will not be believed by those who have come out strongly to destroy his chances of being the next President. Do real people expect someone to deny a religion when 80 percent of his relatives are Muslims?; Mrs Obama asked.

Mrs Obama asked API to write a good story about her husband and that will earn API an invitation to the innoguration ceremony when, as she put it , her husband will be installed as the next President of the United States of America next year.

Double WOW! As I stated, African Press International has been in existence for over two years and has filed over a thousand stories. So will the MSM investigate this? Meanwhile this story is gaining enormous steam in the Blogosphere.

UPDATE: Because of the high level of interest in this story, API has just posted a phone number where they can be contacted for verification. Calls must be made between Oct. 16 and 18. Here is the number posted on their site: 004793299739. To call from the USA, the number is: 011-4793299739.

UPDATE #2: Jeff Schrieber, of the America's Right blog, after expressing initial skepticism over this story has an UPDATE:

UPDATE! UPDATE!

Listen, I'll be the first to admit that I was wrong. And I think I was wrong.

I just got off the phone with a very reputable source that says there is absolutely, positively an audiotape showing that Michelle Obama did in fact say what she said.

I cannot say more right now, as to the source, but let's put it this way -- If you want to know something about Obama, you talk to this guy.

KEEP CHECKING HERE!!

Okay, Jeff, will do. Now waiting for that audiotape...if there is one.

She does not seem like a first lady to me, she seems angry, looks mean and she seems to control her husband. Nothing racial in this, she just does not seem like a nice person.

She has that "Ice Cube brow wrinkle" that makes her look mean as hell.

Like I said, consider the source of the article, but they give a contact number for API to verify the story, and if there's an audio tape of this conversation, will it derail Obama's presidential run?

Huh? That may not be racist but it sounds kind of sexist if you ask me. What does a First Lady "look like" to you? There have been all kinds. Eleanor Roosevelt was physically unattractive, smarter than her husband and gave him a lot of ideas. Jackie-O was a stone fox and quite a socialite. Rosalynn Carter was long suffering and quiet. Nancy Reagan seemed nice on the surface but a little cold and had a rep for being something of a dragon lady, and like her husband had the courage of her convictions. Barbara Bush looked like the First Mother, a total battle-axe and apparently quite stern and mean. Hillary we all know about. And W's wife, well I don't even know what her story is, but she sure is pleasant. My point is just that there are all kinds of different women who wind up being first lady, and your comment seems kind of weird.

To me, Michelle O seems warmer than Cindy McCain, smarter than Sarah Palin, and looks like a good Mom. She also seems nervous about the election and about her husband's safety, and fiercely protective of him. I think the whole "Angry Black Woman" thing is unbelievably belittling and insulting and cartoonish, and is only ever leveled by people who never walked even 2 feet in a black woman's shoes in this country.

Nah. That's a Pandora's Box even the McCain campaign won't open. I don't think they'll want to go tit-for-tat on the issue of temper when it comes to John McCain.

Besides, you can be pretty sure there is no tape. This sounds like one of those whisper campaigns that's floating, maybe someone is hoping it will gain traction and plant some doubts but I have no doubt this is a red herring.

That's what is great about America, we all have opinions. Different strokes for different folks. To me she looks like a mean, cold-hearted, you-know-what.

But I am curious how many feet you walked in a black woman's shoes.
