First Lady Pulls Race Card In Weak Attempt To Improve Score Card… Fail

January 12, 2012

Oh dear. A female New York Times journalist who is very well-disposed towards the Obama family writes a book about the First Couple, their marriage and the White House that portrays the President and his inner circle as dysfunctional.

What does the Obama administration do? Frantically trying to blunt the coverage about the book, including revelationS of f-bombs from Robert Gibbs, then Press Secretary, and lavish parties during a recession, it puts Michelle Obama on television to state this:

“You know, I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and a, you know, but that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since, you know, the day Barack announced, that I’m some angry black woman.”

I’m sorry but it simply won’t wash. It’s an attempt to change the subject. It’s a way to say that any criticism of the Obamas – or even any truthful warts-and-all portrayal – is racist and therefore unacceptable. And people will see through it.
