    Michelle Obama 2020 Chatter Rising — As We Predicted Over Two Years Ago

    Michelle Obama 2020 Chatter Rising — As We Predicted Over Two Years Ago

    Since September 2017, we’ve been saying that pressure will grow for Michelle to get in, maybe even at the convention, to save a party facing grim general election prospects after dysfunctional primaries result in a stalemate or unelectable frontrunner.

    I’m not saying we’re clairvoyant. I’m not saying we see things before others do. I’m not saying that by the time this is all over you are going to be asking us to pick lottery numbers for you.

    I’m not saying any of those things, though I will humble brag that as a kid I was pretty good at the Ouija board and Magic 8 Ball.

    I’m just going to put this out there.

    Since September 2017, we have been predicting that the Democrats will at some point hope that Michelle Obama helicopters into a stalemated Democratic Convention to save the party from the general election disaster of Bernie and other unelectable Democrat candidates:

    The expectation is that if Michelle did it, it would not be during the primaries. She doesn’t want to dirty her hands with the riffraff currently running. She doesn’t want to debate the Democrat commoners. If it happens, despite Michelle’s claims she doesn’t want to be president, it will be as savior, not as candidate.

    The “logic” of Michelle Obama came into greater focus recently, as Democrats bashed Mr. Obama at the debates, and then Mr. Obama cautioned that Democrat presidential candidates were moving too far left for a general election, it was a signal:

    “This is still a country that is less revolutionary than it is interested in improvement. They like seeing things improved. But the average American doesn’t think that we have to completely tear down the system and remake it. And I think it’s important for us not to lose sight of that.”

    “My point is that even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality and the fact that voters, including Democratic voters and certainly persuadable independents or even moderate Republicans, are not driven by the same views that are reflected on certain, you know, left-leaning Twitter feeds or the activist wing of our party.”

    Trump has spent his first term tearing down the Obama legacy. Promise kept. Give Trump a second term, and there won’t be anything left of Mr. Obama’s 8 years in office. Don’t think for a second Mr. Obama doesn’t think about this.

    So when Tucker Carlson ran a segment last night on Michelle Obama 2020, I strained my shoulder patting myself on the back.


    Tonight on his Fox News show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson espoused the theory that Michelle Obama could run for president in 2020, which could be the reason Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former vice president Joe Biden.

    Michelle Obama has stated that she doesn’t want to run for president because she is not interested in politics, but Carlson said not to bet against her entering the race.

    Now, last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president,” Carlson said. “That’s what she claimed. But there are signs that that’s not true.”

    Carlson pointed to the actions of Obama adviser David Axelrod as a harbinger of things to come, claiming Axelrod has run a “scorched earth” campaign against Biden.

    “Axelrod has called him a liar, called him a coward, all but accused him of having dementia,” Carlson said. “Now, would David Axelrod be doing all that without the consent of the Obamas? No. There’s no chance.”
    Carlson’s second point was that Barack Obama did not want Biden to run for president.

    “Not only has Obama refused to endorse Biden,” Carlson said, “he tried to stop Biden from running in the first place.” …

    “The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class,” Carlson said. “Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party’s warring factions.”

    The chatter is rising.

    There are many signs that Democrats want her:

    Former first lady Michelle Obama would lead the field if she were to enter the 2020 Democratic White House race, according to a New Hampshire poll.

    The Franklin Pierce University-Boston Herald poll asked voters questions about who they would vote for if candidates who had not entered the race were to run for the nomination. When asked if they would vote for Obama, the wife of former President Obama who has said there is “zero chance” she would ever run for president, 26 percent of voters said they would support the former first lady at the ballot.

    She would “clear the field” if she entered:

    “If Hillary Clinton were to enter the race, she’d likely do so near the top of the pack,” says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News Poll with Republican Daron Shaw. “And Michelle Obama could probably clear the field.”

    Twenty-seven percent of Democratic primary voters would definitely vote for Clinton, including one-third of those backing Biden and one-quarter supporting Warren.

    The numbers are rosier for former first lady Michelle Obama: 50 percent would definitely vote for her, including nearly 5 in 10 of Biden’s and 4 in 10 of Warren’s supporters.

    They want her, but will they get her?

    I think most of you, with your puerile fart jokes, are just whistling past the grave yard. If she were to run, Michelle would win by a landslide.

    She is one of the most admired women in the nation. Her husband, who would be her real running mate, is the one of the most admired men on the planet. She’d get all the usual Democrats plus most Independent and Republican women.

    Technically, she has far more experience being in the White House than Trump. She’ll have an instant staff of seasoned campaign professionals at her disposal.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

      She’s not going to risk that just to pull the Dems out of the hole they’ve dug for themselves.

      I did not down vote you because if she were to run,she would have a good chance of winning. She won’t run. She can’t win by merely being Michelle Obama. She would have to debate, and I believe she would have big time stage fright if she had to answer policy questions about her own plans rather than responding to constant adulation that she receives. When has she ever had a truly hard question? Nah, she won’t run.

        Free State Paul in reply to willow. | November 27, 2019 at 11:20 pm

        I think you are giving the debates, and by extension the intelligence of the American voter, way too much credit.

        It’s not about policy. It’s about the feels.

      She is the most admired woman in the nation like Hillary Clinton has a 92 percent chance of winning in 2016. Like her weasel husband, this bozo is a complete contrivance, down to her skin below then 60 pounds of makeup on her ugly puss.

      She’s a racist flea, and about as talented as one. She’s also a grifter.

      Finally, she’s an asshole.

      Most popular woman, my ass. We all know Rosie O’Donnell is.

    Folks, why would she subject herself to a full contact political fight for the d nomination and then have to go toe to toe with Trump in the general election? She already has fame, wealth and influence if not power. Why risk losing that status of a perennial favorite? She is smarter than that.

    Even in a brokered convention with her cast as the one to save the d party she would have to fight HRC tooth and nail for the nomination during the floor fight. That alone creates a rift for the d party beyond the fact they would be running rough shod over the crop of candidates who bothered to actually campaign for the nomination. Bad blood for a long time if not resulting in a split of d party.

    I just don’t see it. The d party is stuck with the candidates they have + a short lived Bloomberg campaign.

      She already has fame, wealth and influence if not power.

      You just made my point. Power is all that really matters. Everyone wants power. Everyone around Michelle wants power.

        No, she wants fried food. And plenty of it.

        CommoChief in reply to Free State Paul. | November 28, 2019 at 3:12 pm

        I won’t dispute that she may desire power. What I am trying to point out is she already has a large degree of influence in d party circles. The moment she becomes a candidate in a primary or during a brokered convention floor fight she will automatically lose influence/power with those d party elements opposed to her specifically and those opposed to someone trying to parachute into the convention without going to the pain and effort of an actual primary campaign. That will be a big hurdle to overcome in trying to win over d voters and d precinct level folks who are already mindful of what happened to B. Sanders in 2016.

        Say she emerges from the floor fight at d convention with 80% of the d party behind her for the general. That won’t be enough to beat Trump. More importantly, I believe she knows it. The risk reward ratio just isn’t there.

        To live a very nice, financially secure low stress life all she has to do is be the perennial favorite who never ran, be the beloved d party figure and sell a new book every three years and make nice money on the speaking circuit. No way in Hell she gives that up to get beaten by Trump, hit hard for having to lay out policy positions and create ill will in the d party for ‘stealing’ the nomination at a brokered convention.

    It would be frustrating for Michelle to be President and have Barack around the White House. How many times do you think Barack could say “I” or “me” in four years? She said being a First Lady was hard. I don’t think she’s going to like being President.

    Her running is just what America needs. A person who goes on million dollar vacations over and over again in really ugly cloths while contributing nothing, nada, zip, zero. This is a women who “worked” in a job where for business that never replaced her when she wasn’t proud of being an American but took our money.

    I don’t see it. She hasn’t entered any primaries, and there are already declared candidates (like Bloomberg) who have the ability to buy the Superdelegates at a brokered convention. Sure, anything is theoretically possible. If the voting goes 119 rounds without a nominee, they might get desperate enough to just throw names out there to see if anyone can get a majority. But I still think Moochelle is someone’s ideal VP candidate. Bloomberg could pick her to improve his electability and stave off a 3rd party run. So could Buttigieg, Sanders, or Warren. If senile old Joe was nominated, picking her might be equal to picking a president because he probably wouldn’t last a first term – in fact Moochelle as VP might move to commit him to a nursing home under the 25th amendment.
