Michelle Obama on The Colbert Report

Michelle Obama on The Colbert Report: Running for President in 2016?

Barack Obama declined a chance to appear The Colbert Report. So Michelle Obama took his spot. Last night she threw punch-lines back and forth with Steven Colbert. The interview starts with an elitist dig; around the house.. does Obama change the cat litter; and later a children’s art show, but the sucker punch hit Hillary Clinton’s jaw.

“If he [Barack Obama] becomes the next president of the United States, eight years from now will you be the president after that? Because my understanding is that’s how it works now..”

Doesn’t that put Clinton’s ‘experience’ in perspective?

I feel frustrated at criticism that other women have toward Hillary.  What has she done wrong?  She has risen above and forgiven a man for the most horrible betrayal ever.  She loves everyone and is such a patriot of the US.  Why is Michelle so critical of her?  Then she states that she wants to run?  Come on.  Hillary is a beautiful, caring, and strong woman.  What a role model!  Hillary is my first choice and Barack my second.  I’m sure that McCain is a good person but I think that I will have to move to another country because I cannot bear to deal with more war mongering and ignorance.  Killing in the name of Jesus???  Are they insane?????

Michele is a puredee gem.  I’d be proud to have her in the White House.

Were we watching the same video?  I did not hear Michelle criticize Hillary or any other for that matter.  She did not even say that she wanted to run!!!  WOW…how things can be twisted.

Are you insane?

hillary is no patriot. she’s an american. the end.
michelle obama represents everything an educated woman should aspire to become. she made a path for herself, and is extremely strong; however she doesnt mind dedicated her efforts to that of her husband, and THAT is amazing. she is the opposite of hillary clinton, yet is comprised of everything hillary continues to suggest she contains. she is NO michelle, and should aspire to be.

obama 08 and beyond.

I love what the entire Obama family stands for.  Truly American, truly American.  Just seeing their family and how they ‘get it’ makes me so proud to be an American!

Does anyone realize that U.S.A is not that much different from other countries exercising dictatorship. In those countries they have their ruler and when they are finished then the son or brother takes the place. How can George W Bush become president when his father was president, and as we seen the majority of what he did while in power was finish what his father started. And now the wife of a former president is running fir the position that is very corrupt. Don’t get me wrong it’s history in the making either way it goes but with out sounding racist i would rather see a black man win because this might be our only chance to ever get in because Barack Obama is the TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 are you kidding? Sun, May 04, 2008 - 10:08 am

the US is not at all like a dictatorship.  The reason we have successors is because they are usually congressmen themselves.  Would you really want some nobody off the street stepping in?  Or how about some poor person running the country?  Lets look at how poor people run thier own lives.

The way this country is run I would like to see a poor person run it. I’ll bet you that gas prices wouldn’t be through the roof. I’ll bet you that America’s money wouldn’t be wasted as it is now. For you to base it on how a poor person runs their lives shows your smarts and how much class you don’t have. A poor person doesn’t have the money to run their lives correctly. THEY basically live check to check and still have bills that they didn’t pay. A poor person would appreciate Americas money unlike that ass Bush. Before you say anything about me I own HOUSES but I came from having no money.

people are so blind.

Michelle Obama can go straight to hell. Her running for president is one of the most ridiculous things i have ever heard. And just so you know “frustrated but never bitter”, Hillary Clinton is a damn joke and a liberal on a power trip who would sink this nation even lower after this blue gum gets out.
