Michelle almost dumped Barack after former Black Panther beat him in U.S. House race

According to the new book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, by Edward Klein, Michelle Obama was so angry in 2000 that her husband had run for a House seat and failed miserably that she prepared divorce papers against him. Obama had taken on Bobby Rush, a four-time incumbent on the South Side of Chicago, and lost by a margin of two to one.

Michelle Obama had warned her husband not to run, but he ignored her advice and ran anyway. After Rush destroyed Obama in the election, he called Obama “an educated fool.” Later, when Michelle Obama prepared the divorce papers, according to friends, her husband became so depressed that he was suicidal. Klein describes the situation at the time this way.

    So I got this issue in the mail the other day. Already disgusted with the bias, I open it up and the third page (and the first with any ctennot) is a 2 page spread on Michelle Obama’s campaign style. Seriously it shows 5 pics with comments about how she possesses a natural and unpretentious sophistication , has the grace and beauty of a dancer , and how she glowed in a silk radzimir kimono dress. Sickening. Turning to the coverage of Palin we see pictures of Bristol holding little Trig saying how she’s hiding her baby bump , little boxes with anatomy of a scandal , other Palin controversies , and a description of her offbeat career. And of course, the picture of her hunting with a dead caribou in the shot is included. Why wouldn’t it be, right?I am so disgusted by this magazine. I wasn’t planning on renewing my subscription this year because of the cost, but this makes the decision that much easier.

    I thoroughly agree– the media bias for Obama and his crew is amazing to the point of sickening. They seem enamoured of him to the point of raising very few questions to his activities and policies. We’re likely to see even more extremes if Obama is reelected, because he will not have to worry about a future reelection. He can do what he wants, as we see he already knows from the open microphone incident with the Russian President. Since he’s been pushing his own agenda already these past 4-years, it’s likely we will see even more of this in the near future if he regains office.

Stewart covers atrocious Dem candidate

In New York’s 11th Congressional district, Democrats need to defeat Rep. Michael G. Grimm, who is facing 20 federal charges and was once caught on camera threatening to throw a reporter off a balcony. So you might think this race would be a walk in the park for them—until you meet their incredibly terrible candidate.

Poll: Obama less ‘effective’ at ‘managing basic functions’ of government than George W. Bush
Since his popularity and approval ratings began to slide during his second term, former President George W. Bush has served as a scapegoat for Democrats and current President Obama.
