    Even when politicians are “real”

    Even when politicians are “real”

    they’re fake. Case in point: Michelle’s photo-op at Target store was staged 

    Right outside of D.C. in Alexandria, VA, FLOTUS decided to grab a few things for 30-40 minutes with her assistant at the local Target. She was dressed in a floral button down, black pants, a Nike baseball cap, and shades. But of course, she was still somewhat noticeable. The Associated Press reported that Secret Service arrived 30 minutes before her and blended with the other customers. The only person who recognized the First Lady was her cashier!

    “It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates,” said Kristina Schake, communications director for the First Lady.

    CBS News reports the pics were snapped by an Associated Press photographer who says he was tipped off that she would be there.(emphasis added).

    (AT) – The fact that the White House tipped off a well known photographer about the “shopping trip” gives the lie to the WH statement that the First Lady likes to “slip out to run an errand.” Stage managing this Precious Moment of supposed normalcy will do little to change the perception of the First Lady that she is a luxury loving social climber who looks down on the rest of us.

    To be honest, I’m kind of relieved that the First Lady doesn’t galavant around without security. It’s just nauseating that, between the vegetable garden, J.Crew outfits, “healthy eating” and Target-trips, she’s awful at seeming genuine. Laura Bush was much more charming and she didn’t try half as hard.

    1. Notwithstanding an occasional gaffe, Laura Bush was a successful First Lady because she was comfortable in her own skin.

    Other First Ladies have (ab)used the position to declare themselves the stars of their own shows, or even co-President. (Nancy Reagan was a highly visible First Lady, but no one could doubt that her overriding loyalty was to her spouse.)

    2. My impression of Michelle Obama is that her level of competence is to be the principal of an elementary school, maybe even a high school or community college. Anything beyond that afaic is affirmative action and hubby’s coattails.

    Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t see why. During the 2008 campaign I read her Princeton thesis and was strongly unimpressed.

    An interview once asked Laura Bush to identify her favorite work of literature. Mrs. Bush said it was the Grand Inquisitor section of The Brothers Karamazov. Hardly a calculated response. One cannot conceive of M.O. making such an unguarded answer.

    What did it cost in secret service protection for this nonsense. She has umpteen staffers — far, far more than any other FLOTUS in history — to run her errands.

    She flies in her personal trainer from Chicago every week at taxpayer expense, she vacations on elite Spanish resort beaches at taxpayer expense, first class all the way, she insists on leaving on a separate jet to Martha’s Vineyard with a separate security team and a second disruption of island traffic so she can start her vacation four hours before Barack can leave DC on Air Force One, but sure, why wouldn’t we believe she shops at Target? Heck, she’s wearing a top from Old Navy! That proves it!

    Anyone who supports Obama is an idiot. Completely oblivious to what is before their eyes, they blindly follow him.
