Senator Michelle Obama!!!?!!
That's the speculation by the talking heads at NBC.
NBC Quoting Reuters:
She would quickly become the most recognizable face in the Senate. Her fame and fundraising ability would command deference in a body that normally operates on seniority. Whether the recent elevation of her profile suggests a plan to run is unclear, but she will be well positioned should she jump in.
According to outdated polls cited by NBC from Democrat pollster PPP in 2012, she leads Republican Senator Mark Kirk by about ten points. Never mind that the polls are two years old and that Kirk's seat doesn't come up until 2016, with two years being an eternity in politics.Or that the FLOTUS has never evidenced any interest in running for office anyway.
This is what passes for a news story these days.
But one thing the story could have looked at - if we're looking at something thought provoking - is the why someone with no accomplishments whatsoever except spending an inordinate amount of taxpayer dollars on luxury vacations and travel for herself and her entourage and friends would be thought of seriously as a worthy candidate for senator.
Mrs. Obama lacks any experience that would qualify her for the senate. Even her law license from the State of Illinois was revoked, or 'voluntarily surrendered' as the jargon goes in 1993.She's never run anything, or even held a job for very long that actually required her to do any work. Her only real 'qualification' is her last name and the fact that the Obama fundraising machine would be behind her. And oh yes, that as the Democratic candidate she could count on the usual voter fraud from Cook County.
That's what we've come to...an entitled ruling class with no achievements or accomplishments whatsoever being touted as a candidate for high office.
There's a graphic I was going to include to express my feelings about this , but I'll let you use your imaginations.
