Michelle Obama to Poor, Black People: Be Sick Somewhere Else

August 29, 2008 · Filed Under Healthcare, Michelle Obama, Tony Rezko ·  

Michelle Obama and three close advisers to Barack Obama have been involved with a program at the University of Chicago Medical Center that turns away patients who don’t have private insurance, who are typically poor, black people, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Michelle Obama helped create the program while serving as the vice president of the University of Chicago Medical Center. She is currently on unpaid leave from the $317,000-a-year job.

The top Obama political strategist, David Axelrod, co-owns the firm, ASK Public Strategies, that was hired by the hospital last year to sell the program.

Additionally, Obama adviser and close friend, Dr. Eric Whitaker, took over the program in October 2007. Dr. Whitaker had previously been the director of the Illinois Department of Public Health.

He was recommended for the state job by Obama, who gave his name to Tony Rezko. Rezko helped Governor Blagojevich assemble his Cabinet.

Tony Rezko has been a fund-raiser for Obama and Blagojevich, but you might know him better as the Obama friend who was recently found guilty on 16 of 24 charges of fraud and money laundering.

What a tangled web of rejecting the poor people who need health care and good, old fashioned cronyism.

Michelle Obama is Out of Touch

July 12, 2008 · Filed Under Gaffe, Michelle Obama ·  

Democrats are quick to dismiss the criticism that they are a party of elitists. They try really hard with stunts like Obama going to the bowling alley and rumors that Team Obama will sponsor a car in NASCAR.

But they just can’t seem to get away from their true selves.

Earlier this week, Obama explained how he is embarrassed that “we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beaucoup.”

Yeah, that’s a typical vacation for the American family… the jaunt to Paris.

On July 9, 2008 in Pontiac, MI, Michelle Obama shared a “joke” with the audience:

“You’re getting $600 - what can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn’t pay down every bill every month.”

“The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings.”

What can you do with $600? Really?

According to the USDA, the typical U.S. household spent $41.67 per person each week for food.

So, that silly little $600 could cover a month of food for many families of four, Michelle.

The Obama campaign insists her comment was a joke.

For some reason, I don’t think people that are struggling to meet their bills are in on that joke.

RedHatBlueHat 5: Potential First Ladies as MILFs?

June 20, 2008 · Filed Under Economy, Energy & Environment, Michelle Obama ·  

Episode 5 of RedHatBlueHat included the regular cast of Tim Jones, Mike Allen, Sam Harrelson, Shawn Collins and Todd Crawford getting all hot and bothered over the potential first ladies, drilling for oil and the Obama plan to return to failed Clinton practices of prosecuting terrorists.

We discussed how America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, had the following to say about the Obama idea to return to the Clinton plan when it comes to bringing jihadists to trial…

“I also believe that the remarks yesterday that were made by several people in the Obama camp that if (Osama) Bin Laden were taken to Guantanamo, he would be given habeas corpus rights is startling. The reality is that there seems to be more concern about the rights of terrorists or alleged terrorists than the rights that the American people have to safety and security.”

Michelle Obama vs. Cindy McCainRegarding the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, many of the responsible parties escaped prosecution because of the limits on civilian criminal prosecution.

Same result for the prosecution efforts of the monsters responsible for attacks on the Khobar Towers, the U.S.S. Cole, and the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

It was a toothless plan to treat foreign terrorists like U.S. born shoplifters on September 10, 2001 and we paid a dear price for it.

But like many things Obama, everything old is new again - bad ideas wrapped in new bumper sticker slogans.

We also discussed energy plans and how they contrast. Whereas McCain wants to work towards energy security for a prosperous economy, the Obama plan that focuses on what he doesn’t want and what we can’t do.

The reality is that our economy is tied directly to the availability of diverse domestic energy sources, and McCain is addressing the issue head on.

We talked about how McCain plans to work towards securing our future economy with offshore drilling and the construction of nuclear reactors.

Finally, the gang turns to the issue of which potential First Lady is the hottest. There is some crossing of party lines and surprising picks from both the blue hats and the red hats as things develop. Final verdict is that either way, there will be talk of FLILFs.

Michelle Obama on Americans

May 22, 2008 · Filed Under Michelle Obama ·  

Michelle Obama told a Baptist congregation that the United States is a country that is “just downright mean,” and that we are “guided by fear,” and we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents.

Are these an example of more words supposedly taken out of context from Michelle Obama?

If so, what is the context? I cannot find anything that makes these statements appear in a different light.

Just words. OK.

Michelle Obama is Finally Proud of the U.S.A.

May 16, 2008 · Filed Under Michelle Obama ·  

“What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something — for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I’ve seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it’s made me proud.”
