Obama, his wife, and commentary concerning her comments (update)
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, June 18, 2008

In an attempt to stifle commentary critical of his wife, Barack Obama has decided the best ploy is to go after John McCain:
In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Barack Obama says he is deeply disappointed that John McCain has not spoken out against the attacks leveled against his wife.

Michelle Obama has come under criticism from some conservatives because of comments that they say suggest she's unpatriotic, not proud to be an American and outside the mainstream.
For Mr. Obama and all the others slow on the uptake - if you have a spouse who is out on the campaign trail making political statements on your behalf, just as Bill Clinton did for Hillary, then those comments are fair game. If you don't like that, then I'd suggest you advise your spouse to cool the rhetoric. Unless and until that happens, I, and I'm sure many others on the right, will discuss, analyze and yes *gasp* criticize what is said.

If Mr. Obama finds that be an unacceptable price to pay for her participation in the political processs, then I suggest he seek another line of employment.

UPDATE: Apparently Cindy McCain is fodder for the news cycle when she says things political as demonstrated in this ABC blog report. And that's as it should be. If she says something worth criticizing, it should be criticized. If she doesn't want the criticism, then she should stay away form stage, podium, microphones and cameras.

Huh. Yeah.

My dominant impression is that Barack isn’t the one who declares what’s what in the Obama household.

So conservatives "suggest" that Michelle Obama is not proud to be an American? Maybe because she said she’s not proud to be an American. Is it too much to ask that she be responsible for her own words?

He should rush to Michelle’ defense because...

... Barack has been so quick to come to the defense of Cindy McCain.

Or,

... conservatives who brought up the alledged ’Michelle Obama Video’ in any context are being accused of spreading and even inventing the story.

I have no doubt if McCain made the strongest of refutations of the M.O.V., he have been accused of only doing it to draw national attention to it.

Since when did McCain become our dad?

Was that his job?

Is that written somewhere?

So wait, people attack his wife and he’s disappointed some other guy didn’t stand up for her honor?

I mean, I know the left tends to be wimpy, but this is just amusing as all hell.

Has anyone seen the video yet? Apparently it gets yanked off youtube with amazing speed (assuming it is indeed the video in question to which I get linked)...

Is there even any space left under the bus? (though the vehicle that now comes to mind is the waaaahmbulance)

It could be posted to a private site where it couldn’t get yanked (spammed, hacked, DOS).

If it existed you’d have done more than heard about it by now.

then those comments are fair game.

As always, the right side misses the vital point of the complaint. Michelle Obama has not been criticized for her ’comments’ very much at all. She HAS been criticized for simply being Michelle Obama - and nothing else. You are a racist and bigoted crowd. You cheer on the lawlessness of King Dumbya, but shudder when a smart person expresses himself. I am afraid you have the priorities of a patriotic American rather mixed up - or maybe you are just racist pigs. Yeah, I think you are just racist pigs. You do make limbaugh proud though.

Once again we find the left is more than ready to equate discussion regarding the Obama’s camp campaign commentary with racism. Question her comments regarding her pride in America, or lack thereof - you are a racist. Typical of the Left - the real racists in America.

Certainly, the press has given her a pass on her comments . . . but it is what she writes and says that we have a problem with, not her race. From her vile thesis to her vile comments, you have to conclude she’s an anti-American leftist.

I think it is more that he can’t throw her under, although she might throw him under . . .

We’re not "the right" and we have criticized her comments.

So when I say "her comments are fair game", that’s what I mean.

What part of that didn’t you understand?

Hey, y’all missed the big news in Fred’s comment: apparently Mrs. Obama is a him.

Re. - the update. Fred should note that even when repeatedly given a chance, Cindy McCain did not make it personal. She just stated that she, not being M. Obama, did not understand what drove M. Obama to say that. And that she personally disagreed with it.
