More news to sadden the left: Michelle Obama announced that she will not run for President in 2020. I guess the duties of being the Forever First Lady must be too great a burden to take on another office. But don’t feel bad, Mrs. Obama, there are worthwhile things you can do besides being President. I’m certainly glad of that!

I suggest reading her full comments because they reveal so much of what’s wrong with the whole mindset of current “progressive” identity politics, from the notion that people should vote for candidates based on their race or gender (the left used to call that “racism” and “sexism”) to the idea that America needs to be “fundamentally transformed;” from the claim that Hillary Clinton was held to an “impossible standard” that no man would face (tell it to Michael Flynn, who lost his house for allegedly being less than truthful to FBI investigators, which it later turned out he wasn’t) to Mrs. Obama chastising women for not voting for Hillary because she was a woman and “the most qualified person running” (I could spend the rest of this post just listing arguments to refute that.)

Why do liberals condescendingly assume that women who disagreed that Hillary was the most qualified candidate were themselves not qualified to cast a carefully-considered vote for the candidate of their choice? The argument that women can’t be trusted to vote for the “right” candidate was discarded back in 1920, when America passed the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. Resurrecting it in 2018 doesn’t seem very “progressive” to me.

But then, neither does resurrecting the same idiotic Marxist economic system that started Russia down the road to oppression, tyranny, starvation and ultimate collapse back in 1917. Yet just last week, the New York Times was wishing Karl Marx a happy birthday and declaring “You were right.” Michael Moore, who at last estimate had a net worth of $50 million, retweeted that article along with a few more “thoughts” on why socialism is so much better than capitalism (tell it to the Venezuelans.)

Note to young Bernie Sanders supporters: making the same dumb mistake over and over isn’t “progress.” It’s Einstein’s definition of “insanity.”

Incidentally, if you think I’m being too mean, just imagine what I could have done with Michael Moore’s quotes about rich people who take too big a slice of the pie.

    Michelle Obama has one thing right she's no different than Hillary. Which we all know isn't saying much. What disturbs me is that we have our highway 55 which goes from Chicago straight through the state that has been changed from our hometown Pontiac to Chicago to Barack Obama Highway. What a joke. Obama has nothing to do with Illinois. Just Chicago which is Cook County. Between Cook, Kane, and Lake counties which is heavily populated we are always considered a Democratic State. What's sad is the other 17 counties, anything south of 80 is Conservative. Too bad the heartland has to suffer because of the corruption in Chicago. Wish President Trump could help us before there's nothing but illegal immigrants left in this state.

    Michelle Obama was a horrible first lady. Perhaps she thinks she will need forever to have enough do-overs to get it right. I look at our country and I cannot believe what is happening. I live in the Air Force town where I grew up. We have a big 4th of July Parade and festival later in the summer we have a sweet corn festival. Last year Expedia lableled our little town one of the 17 most patriotic in the country. I fear how long before our town starts to change--or maybe it already as and I just don't know it yet. Colleges have changed from places where free thinking was applauded to rigid institutions that stifle free speech and free thinking and do not tolerate views counter to their own .
    I am a retired nurse and human resource professional 66 years old and our country has changed so much in the past few years, I fear what is going to happen in the years I have left. I have always been an optimist but now not so much.

    Mrs Osama Obama will be remembered only for the many vacations she took & the hate she has for this nation. She will NEVER have the CLASS of Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, or Barbara Bush.

    I hope Michelle O is not lying like Hillary did in 2008 when she said she wouldn’t run for president again.
