Watching Youtube videos doesn't equate to reading.

That is a big difference. Or do you think they should say they agree with stupid leftist ideas when they do not?

Right, watching is not reading. Good, glad we have that out of the way.

Her lunch policy, which became law, because she was first lady.

I assume you will respond with some ridiculous response that it is normal or something.

It's not.

First ladies should mind their own business and let the president do their job.


You make it sound like she alone enacted some terrible law. The reality is it was voted on by both Republicans and Democrats. First Ladies have always been an influential force upon their husbands and this is an old time American tradition so why you hate Michelle for it and only focus on her means you don't know history, you only know partisan politics BS.

Child Nutrition Bill Sent to President Obama; Michelle Obama Calls Bill 'Groundbreaking'



The House of Representatives, by a vote of 264-157, today passed the child nutrition bill, which was praised by first lady Michelle Obama as "a groundbreaking piece of bipartisan legislation."

Having an opposing opinion on ideologies is fine, it's American, but let's not pretend that's all there is to it in politics, especially amongst blow hard partisan pundits who spew nonsense for hours on end.

You mad I'm not gonna watch your videos? Did you make them or something? Sorry, but I don't put much stock in Youtube videos created some anonymous user to push their agendas, especially when politics is concerned. I don't watch "PROOF THE EARTH IS FLAT" videos in threads either.

HAHAHAHA. I love how liberals assume they are so smart.

A democratic majority house passes a bill proposed by the first lady. Effing retarded.

Agree Rush and Beck are full of doo-doo. There is a huge difference between calling O an ape than disagreeing with their policies.


Are you attempting to make both ape statements and AM talk shows racist?

Again should "free" people just go along with O's leftist ideas to avoid being called racist or is it now not OK to be a political pundit?

Not mad, but I would think you would want to know what you are commenting on. But different strokes for diff folks.

There's another one?

All I can say is that in 2009 or so, a friend of mine emailed me a link to a .pdf of Michelle Robinson's senior thesis written when she was at Princeton.

i read it and my mouth dropped open.


Would you mind posting some of it for us?
I think it would help us all understand Mrs. Obama a little better.



Allow me to be of help. It's a research paper, and Politico provided a reputable link to it It's a four-part PDF. In it she surveys Black alumni who attended Princeton to find out how the experience changed them.

She discusses the foundation of the research and identifies specific variables that she's interested in (has their feelings toward lower class Blacks changed, for instance. Does their experience make them feel more comfortable in the presence of Whites? How eager are they to help low income areas that are predominantly Black) - etc. Quite interesting questions, from where I sit, and ones that probably would not or could not be asked by a White researcher.

An interesting hypothesis of hers appears at the top of the second PDF where she hypothesizes that Princeton alums who are Black will feel less in tune intellectually with their family culture and more in tune with the White culture. Her observation here is that while Blacks at Princeton may not have been absorbed into other aspects of the White culture, they are familiar with (and in a sense part of) a White intellectual culture -- and that they may be less interested in benefiting the Black community (Page 20.)

Methodology begins on page 22, and it's a fairly standard sociological research setup using questionnaires for the independent and the dependent variables and using a Likert Scale to codify the answers (not the way an anthropologist would do it, but absolutely standard for psychology and sociology.) Of her sample of 400 graduates, 89 (22%) returned the questionnaire (page 25).

The analysis of the respondents (who they were, when they were there, etc) is fascinating (page 26-27.and 33-36) I'd like to meet some of the folks who responded.

In the third part she discusses some of the unexpected findings related to two different directions that the alumni took (whether more integrated with the Black community or less integrated with them) ...and the interesting result that those who separated from the community actually became more interested in helping the poorer members of the Black community (I'm summarizing badly pages 44-50.)

The conclusion and discussion and reflection are quite interesting and she honestly points out where her initial assumptions are wrong. Part 4 continues the tables and includes the "survey instruments" (as it's called in academia... "questionnaires" to the rest of us) and the bibliography.

Running a quick Fliesch-Kincade Scoreon one section pegged the readability at about 49 (roughly that of any Wikipedia article that is NOT about sports or entertainment) ... which is about what you expect of a senior thesis.

I found one typo ("apart" for "a part.")


And you can check it out for yourself. I enjoyed it, but I'm the sort of oddball who enjoys scholarly papers.

Your Mileage May Vary.

Note: I didn't find anything that remotely resembled what was previously reported as "Michelle's Senior Thesis" in the real senior thesis.

Hmm, I wonder why?

Black culture is referring to religious and political beliefs and history of African American in America I think for the most part. It's different from other groups and that's true too as well for other groups as they will be unique to each race. Every race or cultures have their own thug life world wide. Social cancer is color blind.

"Americans" calling her an ape? I have never called her that. I think there may be a racial aspect to the chip on her shoulder.

But she by no means is an ape.


Maybe not, but you called Michelle Obama an "animal" in your OP, while referring to Melania Trump as a "lady".

You have never head the phrase political (the word you left out) animal? Oh and I followed it with the phrase "in a good way".

You are being willfully ignorant.

Nice try-try again

It's an observation, not ignorance.



Michelle is a driven political animal (in a good way) , and Melania seems like a softer and somehow maybe a kinder first lady.............


Maybe you didn't mean to deliberately contribute the racist memes that the Obama's have had to endure, but you sure wouldn't know it from your "in a good way" caveat. You put this thread in the "Mud Pit", and I don't believe you're that naïve.

Micelle Obama was no more a "political animal" as First Lady than Laura Bush or Nancy Reagan were. At least Michelle Obama was a role model for women of all ages.

Don't even get me started on the low class, out of touch, porn star First Lady, and her agenda to attack the media in her "anti bullying" campaign!

Porn Star First Lady. Really? You better get off your high horse quick. Resulting to slutshaming is not a good counter argument. What about her body her choice? That's just pathetic sorry.

Your observation is wrong.

Being called a political animal is not a racist sentiment it is an inside the beltway term-educate yourself. And yes she was/is a very good politician. I do not get that feel with Melania.

What you are trying is a liberal tactic, the fact is I can do nothing correct if I don't 100% agree with you.

You are wrong
