In an extreme display of hypocrisy, the first lady required people to provide photo ID and their SS number before she would consider autographing her book that they purchased.


On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady's book at the location and leave it at the store, according to the employee. At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver's license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to the First Lady's event on June 12.( Emphasis added)

The liberal media, particularly Obama-boosting cable network MSNBC has done its best to attack voter ID laws as discriminatory at best and racist at worst.

I thought requiring people to provide ID and their SSN was a racist act like the Jim Crow laws of 1877? Isn’t that what we have been told? Obama himself has done his best to prevent stricter voting laws that would require people to show ID but apparently it’s ok to have that requirement to get an autograph from an elitist like Michelle Obama?


I’m sick of these hypocritical elitists?

It is only racist or elitist if you are white or a "terrorist". Of course, we are all "terrorists" now.

I'm thinking that this is a Secret Service vetting of people who are invited to meet the 1st lady, nothing more.

Its not about finding out whether or not the people are "legal". It is about protecting the First Lady.

People just keep on trying to make something out of nothing.

And for the record, this entire thread should be pulled down as political trolling.

It is still hypocrisy of the first order. The MSM should be all over this, but they lie quiet for their masters.

Sure it is, but it’s hypocritical that they claim its “racist” when it’s done to ensure a voter’s identity and protect the integrity of our system but no mention of racism when checking ID for this purpose.

Hypocrites!

How is it hypocritical for the secret service to DO THEIR JOB and protect the first lady?

Also, Id like to point out that the title of this thread is false and misleading-it is not Michelle Obama that is requiring it. It is the secret service.

Seriously, this is another in a long line of pathetic attempts to discredit the obamas.

It’s not trolling it’s pointing out the obvious double standard. I’m sorry you can’t look past your own love and admiration for the Obamas to see the hypocrisy in this story.

If this was about protecting the First Lady, she wouldn't be doing a book signing. So let me get this straight, she is using tax payer dollars to push her book? How much is it costing to run back ground checks on each person? When will people stop treating these so called "public servents" like rock stars?

Nice try, im not an obama supporter, but it sure is funny how you all jump to that garbage immediately when someone points out the pathetic rhetoric.

Terms in the OP such as "the liberal media" are most definitely political trolling.

Government employee Sherriff Joe is a racist for asking for ID.

Government employee Secret Service is not racist for asking for ID.

Are people that blinded by political ideology?

No difference.

1)The secret service would be assigned to her, book signing or not, so it is not taking any extra tax dollars.

2)I dont see anything about background checks-just documenting who is there.

3)They will stop being protected right about the time that nutcases quit trying to kill them. In other words, never. Do you REALLY want the presidential family left unprotected?

How is it “racist” for election officials to DO THEIR JOB and verify the identity of voter’s before they cast a vote in a binding election, the results of which affect ALL OF US??

Not sure why you are asking me this, as I have never claimed it is.
