Yeah, I'm all broke up about it. Help me out here. Is it a "Black Thing and I Wouldn't Understand It"? Is it a Liberal thing? A Beta Male thing?
Obama's surrounded himself with mean, mouthy women who have no respect for the country he's wanting to preside over, or his campaign, and who are so giddy with the power curve that they think it's all about them: (link fixt.)
Never underestimate the influence of a wife who bitch-slaps her husband in public. Early in Obama's campaign, Michelle Obama could not restrain herself from belittling the senator. "I have some difficulty reconciling the two images I have of Barack Obama. There's Barack Obama the phenomenon.... ...And then there's the Barack Obama that lives with me in my house, and that guy's a little less impressive," she told a fundraiser in February 2007.
"For some reason this guy still can't manage to put the butter up when he makes toast, secure the bread so that it doesn't get stale, and his five-year-old is still better at making the bed than he is." New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd reported at the time, "She added that the TV version of Barack Obama sounded really interesting and that she'd like to meet him sometime." Her handlers have convinced her to be more tactful since then.
If the women around him have no respect for him, why should I?
Oh, and thanks to Rachel for her tireless efforts to tell it like it is about the Obamas.
Update: Ooooh! More Spengler goodness about M.O.!And another thing, Hillary is no better in her efforts to "control" her man.
Can I just say this? I DON'T WANT ANOTHER "CO-PRESIDENCY!" EVER! I'm not happy with John McCain but I don't hear Cindy trying to shove her oar in for policy and influence. I don't want two Clintons and I don't want two Obamas or two McCains or the Doublemint Twins or Tweedles Dee and Dum, gay or straight couples, whatever.
Stand on your own two feet and let me know that at 3:00 a.m. YOU will be the one picking up the phone and saying, "Shut up! It's for me."
No, I don't know if this post will ever end today. It's the Undead Post.
