Wow, I missed this idiotic attack. I think this reeks of desperation. They can’t possibly get anywhere on facts so they go for this BS.
Idiotic track is exactly what this is! OT: I love that pic of Barack and Michelle on the video they look so passionate…anyway They are disgusting but it is important that their lies were refuted.
My video is not working. Can someone summarize what’s happening here? What Obama Syndrome meme is Dyson referring to? Is he pushing the meme himself? Does it have anything to do with POTUS & FLOTUS’ passionate embrace displayed on the video?
Conservatives Sites Attack Michelle Obama For Wearing Borrowed Jewelry
When this couple finally leaves the white house I will look forward to reading their accounts of their days in office.
I posted on twitter tonight that the president is already being primaried and that candidate is the media.
Those radical racists right wing nuts are not worthy to clear Michelle’s shoes. We have a wonderful First Lady, and thank God most of America are not like those radical racists right wing nuts.
“Those radical racists right wing nuts are not worthy to clear Michelle’s shoes.” TRUE!!!! They are all jealous of her.
OT: Anyone else noticed that Michelle is the splitting image of Queen Tiye? All she needs is the fro and she would be Queen Tiye.
I mean to say those radical right wingnuts are not worthy to clean Michelle’s shoes.
Everyone will now go to the Mrs. O site to find out who is the designer. A pearl is born through swirling sand and rough waves. This jewelry designer will now shine and prosper because of FLOTUS.
Chipsticks you got it in one; Obama derangement syndrome indeed. It reeks of desperation. That Fox News and the rightwing blogs have to make up stuff to try and smear FLOTUS is pathetic.
Stay strong and proud you African Queen. You deserve all the GOOD THINGS that are happening. Continue to raise your girls and support your husband.
They don’t like that a Black woman is competent, beautiful, kind, and intelligent. Period.
No, they don’t like Black!
If a book or whatever reading does occur, it should be a dozy when the First Lady and President Obama do leave the White House . One thing for sure, our President and First Lady our strong, patient, cerebral, leaders and good role models. I would love to read their version because the firebaggers and right wing will do everything in their power to rewrite our President and First Lady’s history.
I’d also like for Colin Powell to write his version of his time during the Bush administration. Call me paranoid. I’ve often wondered has the right wing threatened his life if he attempts to tell it like it really was.
I’m new to posting but have been a reader now since before midterms. It is so encouraging to read a blog not littered with bashing.
I may have hit the submit button once by accident. I hope I didn’t double post.
Welcome to the family officially relellit. Hope you drop by more often and leave a comment or two.
While I too would love to read that – it will never happen. The Obamas have way too much class to ever demean the country, nor the Office of The President by writing such a book.
I don’t see the retired General/Secretary Powell ever writing such a book either. Too much class. I would however, like him to read a book about that Nigerian yellowcake…… and put those monsters he worked for in their place.
WRITE – FFS.
Apparently, I need sleep. I’m suffering from endless rehearsal syndrome.
The three of them in this video are far too kind.
No one, not even the ugly monsters in the GOP, ever said anything like *this* about even Hillary Clinton.
WHY? Because Hillary is WHITE.
Yes, I said it, and I mean it. This is about RACE. The GOP bloggers and FauxNeus are alluding that Michelle does not know her place, and is attempting to rise above her “station”. They imply this jewelry is being PAID for by the American taxpayer (never mind that it was loaned to the First Lady to wear) because the Obama’s are black, and would never pay for anything themselves, thus are stealing from the American People’s pockets. THAT is what they mean. PERIOD.
As if every actor ON EARTH (with the exception of Liz Taylor) isn’t loaned jewelry for every red carpet appearance EVER. Actors don’t BUY jewelry from Harry Winston, ARE YOU FUCKING INSANE???? They don’t buy those gowns either. (Well, Elisabeth Shue did buy hers off a rack for the ’96 Oscars…)
And they can cry about the “race card” all they want, but that is what they are doing, and they’re well aware of it. Make no mistake.
Obamas plural, not Obama’s possessive. UGH!
Tally, when you get on a rant – you make me smile, laugh and clap all at the same time! Thank you for mentioning that actress’ wear Harry Winston all the time and no one makes a sound about how much the pieces cost.
I can’t even listen to a GOP voice, or listen to what they say anymore. They drive me crazy.They represent the worst of mankind, and are so ugly that one can’t even call them civilized. Karma will be very painful for them – that’s my only comfort.
theo67,I feel the same way.
Chipsticks, going to make this quick because frankly I’m just too mad & up to here with the bullshit Maxine Waters is peddling in her persistant attacks on the President, then playing coy with us on twitter. Today she was confronted with her attacks on Obama. She cited every excuse at her fingertips to deflect a direct response for her behavior. And the end all be all was her insistance that because AA unemployment rates were at its highest in 30 years she was fighting the good fight.
Never mind the fact that rates have always been double to that of whites since 1972 when the government began tracking these stats. http://money.cnn.com/2011/09/02/news/economy/black_unemployment_rate/index.htm Never mind the fact that some of these same congresscritters have been in the house for years traversing multiple administrations without making a dent in changing this ratio in their own districts but are hellbent on hollering from the rooftops that its all Obamas fault. WTF James Perry, Executive Director of the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center (and hubby of Prof. Melissa Harris-Perry) takes the CBC, Maxine Waters & Cleaver to task on this very point…their new found rage in “The CBC, Glass Houses and Stones” http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/2011/09/cbc-glass-houses-and-stones.html?spref=tw
The final insult today is Maxine Waters and the CBC ignoring or refusing to answer why POVERTY PIMPS Tavis Smiley and Primary Obama Cornel West has been invited to participate in a Congressional Black Caucus panel discussion. One of her tweets today read, “Not a blame game we must fight together against tea party” yet their behavior undermines this very task. Will they invite Uncle Tom Ralph Nader too! Furthermore I like how I found out about the invite days ago via the following tweet:
@CornelWest : Fri 9/23 in #DC, I will join a panel discussion @OfficialCBC ALC after a screening of #TooImportantToFail by @TavisSmiley http://ow.ly/6xjW7
Nowhere does the @OfficialCBC (Twitter TL) or their webcite http://thecongressionalblackcaucus.com/ announce the upcoming CBC event. It still maintains the last event “The Congressional Black Caucus’ For the People Jobs Commission” hosted on 9-21 Wednesday. Why its almost as though they are trying to conceal the Tavis Smiley and Primary Obama Cornel West inclusion. Despite several tweets Waters nor the #CBC has yet answered our questions and yes demands they provide responses to this writ of douchbaggery.
One last thought. Maxine Waters has lost her ever fucking mind! There I said it and accept my apologies for the outburst.
ribletsonthepan, no need to apologize. I feel the same way about Maxine Waters. I have no respect for her anymore. It is clear her big mouth has gone to her head,she loves to hear herself talk. But I am fed up with the old witch. Yes I said it and I am not going to apologize.
I saw the Maxine Waters challenge, and it was a thing of beauty. She should be ashamed for what she’s doing. Karma.
OMG this saga looks worse by the minute. So while Maxine Waters is attacking the President on Jobs, unemployment and what not The Congressional Black Congress Foundation has been hosting the 41st CBC Annual Legislative Conference that began Wed and ends this Sat. NOTE The CBCF claims it is a nonprofit, nonpartisan org that does not endorse or contribute to candidates. Nevertheless, CBCF Officers and Members are the Congressional Black Caucus of the US, 112th Congress .
The Friday schedule lists 2:00pm-5:30pm “Too Important To Fail” A Tavis Smiley report BUT no mention of Cornel West…Again why is that!

Past Sessions of Note (These have to be a SAD JOKE)
“Closing The Racial Wealth Gap” Hon. Hosts WALMART & The Natl Association of Black Accountants
“Africans Americans in the MILITARY: Past Present & Future” Hon. Host ALLEN B. WEST
Yes that Allen West, ” I have a higher security clearance than President Obama”. The same Allen West who hosted a session on AA in the military, was charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134, later referred to an Article 15 proceeding rather than court-martial, at which West was fined $5,000. LTC West accepted the judgment and retired with full benefits in the summer of 2004.
Iraq interrogation incident (FROM WIKI!) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_West_(politician)
West served in the army in Iraq and was a civilian adviser in Afghanistan. With 20 plus years of active duty service in the United States Army, he achieved the rank of lieutenant colonel, electing to retire after an investigation of his conduct during the interrogation of a detainee in Taji, Iraq.[citati
While serving in Taji, Iraq, West received information from an intelligence specialist about a reported plot to ambush him and his men. The alleged plot reportedly involved Yahya Jhodri Hamoodi, a civilian Iraqi police officer. West, who was not responsible for conducting interrogations in Iraq and had never conducted nor witnessed one, had his men detain Hamoodi. In the process of detaining Mr. Hamoodi, soldiers testified that Hamoodi appeared to reach for his weapon and needed to be subdued. Hamoodi was beaten by four soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion on the head and body. West then fired his pistol near Hamoodi’s head, after which Hamoodi provided West with names and information, which Hamoodi later described as “meaningless information induced by fear and pain.” At least one of these suspects was arrested as a result, but no plans for attacks or weapons were found. West said “At the time I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received. It’s possible that I was wrong about Mr. Hamoodi.”
West was charged with violating articles 128 (assault) and 134 (general article) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. During a hearing held as part of an Article 32 investigation in November 2003, West stated, “I know the method I used was not right, but I wanted to take care of my soldiers.” The charges were ultimately referred to an Article 15 proceeding rather than court-martial, at which West was fined $5,000. LTC West accepted the judgment and retired with full benefits in the summer of 2004. Asked if he would act differently under similar circumstances again, West testified, “If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can.” After Lieutenant Colonel West was relieved of his command, an interpreter employed by a private contractor said that without his presence the region he previously oversaw “became more dangerous and chaotic”.
They are a hot mess. CBC needs to get over itself or do its damn job. Either way, it would signal *action.* That job event you mentioned? I received an invitation to it with the timeliness of the invitation that marked the kickoff of the job tour: Tuesday a.m. for a Wednesday a.m. event. No address given but a reference to a conference room. Um, what? And I’m someone who knows her way around the Hill. Others might not be as familiar. Nice work, CBC, stay gold! Now pass me the remoulade for a mini-crabcake, please!
I love how the President and First Lady just keep moving on doing what they were elected to do. Mrs. Obama is untouchable and this is what is killing her opponents. They can’ t find anything to smear her with so they have begun to make up things. I pray they will stay strong and continue all the good works they are doing…..
Everyone don’t forget the our wonderful First Lady will be on Exetreme Home Makeover, I think that is what it is call. It will be on Sunday. And Saturday there will be something at the White House for kids, most of the stars from Nickelodeon will be there, I think it’s something dealing with Let’s Move. Our wonderful First Lady will keep marching on dong what she feels is right. She knows that most of the people she meet is not like those radical rightwing racists nuts. We love and respect her.
It is “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in case you need to search for it.
Thanks COS, I wasn’t sure the name of the show. I just knew when it would be coming on.
Ready to be recorded. The only “reality” show I watch.
To all of the TOD Family the whole this.With all the right wing nuts and greed over people party is the fact they can’t deal with the following facts;
Our President Obama walks the walk and talks the talk to truth.
Our President Obama is true to his Wife both in public and private.
Our President Obama is true to the American People,gets thinks done with all Hell against Him.
Our President Obama is really the True Leader of The Free World in more ways than we will ever know just one Speech in Cairo and we got the Arab Spring of change.
Our President Obama has done more in 3 1/2 years that most Presidents before didn’t do in 8 years of their terms.
And most of all Our President Obama gave the World full notice you start some Crap against our Country .He will come get you where ever you are come HELL OR HIGH WATER and the proof of that fact is ask the pirates that run the seas and the most famous O BIN LADEN.
The reason the Republicans and the Tea partiers try as they might and shout about their Family Values. They hate the fact that Our President Obama Lives the Family values better than all their talk.
And that he is BLACK, and kicking butt
And that our President Is a *BLACK* Man. That just kills their egoes. It’s jealousy, envy, evil and hatred.
Luci1119; THAT IS SO TRUE and that is their main problem. As Jack Nicholson Said in the MOVIE “A FEW GOOD MEN” They can’t handle the truth.Our President is just to damn good to beat.
In a logical world, it would force the opponents to up their games. I think that’s the biggest fear: how do we counter this? He’s the opposite of what we’ve said black men are. So now what? Gov. Hairdo seemingly proudly talking about his own lack of intellect [and intellectual curiosity] should be seen as the insult it is to the voting public. Instead it’s supposed to be charming, folksy, and fun. This all started with St. Ronnie.
I have one problem with the comparison between President and First Lady Obama in that folks love to tout her approval ratings as always much higher than her husband’s. Well, aren’t most if not all first ladies’ ratings higher as they don’t make policy? I find it spurious to ever compare the two. FLOTUS, like all before her, does not sign legislation; she however spreads good will, as all before her, so of course she will continue to shine long after the bloom is off of her husband. And as the clip shows, even those few words are meant to malign him, though I don’t attribute that attempt directly to the three on this clip. I do agree that she is a fierce weapon for her husband’s benefit, so yes, that is why the attacks have amped up. We’ll just see how that all fails.
