First Lady takes time with college graduates to discuss herself

narcissism2As the students of Tuskegee University venture out into the economic shit-storm the last two Presidents have created for them; well hell, let’s just go all the way back to Woodrow Wilson in 1913 with the spawning of The Federal Reserve devil child – The First Lady decided the most important topic of our times to discuss and bless our future leaders with her wisdom on was – herself.

Everyday, I feel more and more like a peasant in this land of Kings and Queens.

From HotAir:

While hubby played golf this Mother’s Day weekend, Mrs. Obama went to Alabama’s Tuskegee University’s. Her 3,700 words began in standard form, but quickly became a detailed recounting of American racism including the famed Tuskegee airmen who overcame it seven decades ago.

Then, her address took a turn we’ve become accustomed to expect more from her husband: The celebration of 500 hard-won graduations became instead a speech more about her. To hear the first lady tell it, this has been a pretty rough time for her, living in the White House rent-free with her mother. Many sleepless nights. Taking numerous globe-girdling trips to five-star suites costing taxpayers in excess of $44 million.

“As potentially the first African American First Lady, I was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations; conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and mis-perceptions of others. Was I too loud, or too angry, or too emasculating? Or was I too soft, too much of a mom, not enough of a career woman?

“Then there was the first time I was on a magazine cover — it was a cartoon drawing of me with a huge afro and machine gun. Now, yeah, it was satire, but if I’m really being honest, it knocked me back a bit. It made me wonder, just how are people seeing me.

She said that it all really got to her. “I had the peace of mind of knowing that all of the chatter, the name calling, the doubting — all of it was just noise. It did not define me. It didn’t change who I was. And most importantly, it couldn’t hold me back.”

I’m sorry… but held you back from what? I’ve had this conversation far too many times when it comes to First Ladies, both Republican and Democrat, and it always boils down to the same thing. You can review the Constitution and the various federal laws of the land over and over, as much as you like, and the official duties of the First Lady (or, ahem… First Gentleman) are precisely zero, zip, zilch, nada. Anything the First Lady decides to do is entirely up to her. If she wants to sit around in the official residence all day, every day, wearing sweat pants, eating Junior Mints and watching Dr. Phil, there’s really not a person on Earth who can gainsay her choices with the possible exception of her husband. (And good luck with that, buddy.)

  1. Her speech wouldn’t have gone over at more than a half dozen other traditionally black college graduations in this country. Other than that, she’s a flea…a blip…and meaningless. Who cares what the first lady of a failed president thinks, after all? BTW, when are we going to send her a bill for all of those multi-million dollar vacations she’s taken on our dime?

    • Agree. Sounds more like she is trying to spontaneously combust her relevance based on the straw man argument of, “I could not decide which way I was relevant of all these ways I am about to relate to you” which assumes she was even relevant to begin with.
