Irony alert: Michelle bemoans money in politics, asks donors for ‘big, fat check’


First lady Michelle Obama on Thursday night urged Democrats to “dig deep” into their pockets and “write a big fat check” before the midterm elections, but minutes later complained of too much money in politics.

Speaking at a party fundraiser in Chicago, Mrs. Obama said Democrats must triumph in the November contests if President Obama is to make progress on his agenda during the final two years of his term.

She also blasted special interest groups that funnel money to Republicans.

“So, yeah, there’s too much money in politics. There’s special interests that have too much influence. But they had all that money and all that influence back in 2008 and 2012 and we still won those elections,” she said.

    I agree with ya Sammyg227; I dislike her bigger than you do! She is a poor excuse for a ‘lady’…he/she?

    If you EVER believe a Democrat, YOU should have a psychiatric evaluation! CONSTANT hypocrisy, lies and destruction of our morals, culture and freedoms!!!

  • wholetooth@aol.com says:

    Tis better to remain silent and be thhought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. Both the Royal Obamas are suffering from terminal cranio-rectal inversion!

  • grannie says:

    Nobody ever told her she should make sense when she gives a speech.

  • johnnywood says:

    You have to be a liar to be a Democrap and it also helps to be stupid. She qualifies on both counts.

  • Alan Ludwick says:

    You did not win. The main stream media won for you!

  • Mathematical certainty says:

    What a nitwit.

  • ralfo says:

    She should ” engage brain before opening mouth”. Adios!

  • I Seigel says:

    Ah, so basically everyone here is for unilateral disarmament. We should sign the treaty banning land mines? How about taking action on climate change unilaterally? Or getting rid of the rest of our nukes?

    Just because someone doesn’t like the rules doesn’t mean they can’t or shouldn’t play the game. Just so long as you follow the rules, you’re not doing anything illegal. Meanwhile, it’s certainly within your right to try to change the rules.

      If you oppose something, DON’T DO IT!!! NO MORAL COMPASS!!!!
      Saying it’s wrong for Republicans and NOT SAYING it is wrong for Democrats is outlandish – can you not see the lack of TRUE opposition here??? Just another “blah, blah, blah” moment for this hypocrite!!!
      ALSO, put the jet-setting, multi-home owning, money-loving, carbon emitting Al Gore in with the other Democrats!!!!

        Any ideology taken to the extreme is just plain idiotic and suicidal. Conservative or liberal. Christian or Islamic or Jewish or any other religion

        Let’s say you loved animals, were an avid supporter of PETA, etc etc, and you were hiking in the woods and came across a bear. Of course, you were carrying a gun, as all good conservative hikers do. If the bear charged at you, would you shoot it or let yourself be killed? Afterward, you could feel bad about shooting the bear, but you wouldn’t regret saving your own life, and would your friends call you a hypocrite for killing the bear? Or would you let your ideology override your sense of survival, and allow yourself to be mauled, but feeling good about yourself that you weren’t harming the bear?

        We’re not talking fraud here on the part of Obama. She was playing by the rules for her political survival. And like I said, you can accept the rules as they are and still try to change them.

        This case isn’t like all those righteous Christian conservative congressmen and senators who rail against gays and out-of-wedlock sex, and then get caught cheating on their spouses, running off to South America with their mistresses, smoking crack, or having gay sex contacts in airport bathrooms.

      Is it playing the game when you ONLY believe it is right for ONE SIDE?
      Is she trying to change the rules or making use of them FOR HER PURPOSES?
      Is it right for the U.S.A. to disarm while China and Russia ARM?
      Is it right for drastic action being taken by man-made climate change believers to destroy the coal industry and prevent us from using our own natural resources without an up and running energy substitute?
      Thereby INCREASING home, business, and transportation prices for mainly low and middle income families! AND destroying jobs also in the established energy areas. And GIVING our Tax dollars to obama’s cronies in the solar field for FAILED Companies. That money is LONG GONE and WASTED!!!
      I could go on and on about the hypocrisy, lies, fraud, waste and destruction of this regime, their families and their cronies!!!

        What are you going on about? You’re making an argument of nothing! She says there’s too much money in politics (courtesy of the Supreme Court). Too much is too much. She doesn’t say anything against just Republicans. And she recognizes that Republicans are giving lots of money to their candidates, so she’s asking Democrats to do the same. She’s simply recognizing the faults in the system and then telling her constituents to try to maintain a level playing field. What’s the problem?

    Michelle is not trained to speak publicly. She double-speaks and then puts her foot in her mouth!

      Now we know that it’s not Fritos that we smell on her breath.

    2. Phillip_in_TX says:

      Joe “change the foot in my mouth” Biden must be her speech coach.
