Okay, let’s forget about politicians for a second. Let’s forget about presidents. Let’s talk First Ladies. So, as a liberal, I can say I have no deep-seated issues with former conservative/Republican First Ladies, and I don’t recall having any identifiable issues with them at the time (so, it’s not just an issue of rose-colored glasses). I’m serious, I mean, I’m sure I could find specific things they might have said that I might disagree with, but I’m being completely honest that nothing comes to mind at this time as a reason to really display any level of vitriol towards a former Republican/conservative First Lady. However, I’m not sure the same can be said for many conservatives/Republicans when it comes to Michelle Obama. And I really don’t know why, well, other than, well, hmm…. Race? Nah, that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about petty conservative politics, and race is only one of many potential opaque or transparent “arguments” against what?…only God knows, which means nobody knows. Of course, this speaks to the lack of character of the person in the mirror more than it speaks to the character of the current First Lady.
