The first lady spoke to a graduating high school class in Tennessee and said:

Overcoming adversity has been the hallmark of many great people, she said.

“Oprah was demoted from her first job as a news anchor, and now she doesn’t even need a last name,” she said of media giant Oprah Winfrey. “And then there’s this guy Barack Obama … he lost his first race for Congress, and now he gets to call himself my husband.”

The first lady joked: “I could take up a whole afternoon talking about his failures.”

Oh. Honey. That’s not even a good start.

When someone, anyone makes such a statement and gets an acrid, opposing response from a critic , in comedy it's called 'talented'.
[see : Milton Berle, Youngman, Dangerfield, et.al.]
She made the statement and it was responded-to, and nowhere was there any real venom. If she doesn't want any retorts, there is a really simple remedy : Put a sock in your pie-hole, dearest . Go take out the trash.

overcoming adversity...yes, born with a handicap, raised in the ghetto, victory over drugs or crime.....but lyin', stealin', being a narcissistic fool..... the O and his wife have made their adversity....and there ain't no overcoming that, unless something changes...maybe impeachment over dereliction of duty, or imprisonment over malfeasance and treason and they can make use of all the wonderful resources in maximum security

It's going to take a lot more than an afternoon.

I'm guessing at some point, Mrs. Obama, your husband and/or much of his staff, cabinet & appointees will spend not one afternoon, but the rest of his 2nd term being questioned by Congress about his failures . . . . to keep what he is doing quiet.

One of the reasons Obama won women by 12 points, and hence the 2012 election, is crap like this.

I vote on policies, but I still notice that the knives are always a little sharper, the gibes a little more gleeful and substance-free, when it comes to Michelle - or Hillary before her.

The women who don't pay attention to politics, often-times that's all they notice. And they vote accordingly.

Lol. This isn't a snipe at Mrs. Obama, it's a snipe at her husband. "Look, even his own wife knows he's a failure." Think with your brain, not your ladyparts.

BALDERDASH!!! Look at how the left speaks of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman or Jan Brewer. Read the viscous tweets sent to Michelle Malkin. Go back and look at the cruelty that was heaped upon Nancy Reagan. If women were truly voting against the party that speaks cruelly of women then would vote overwhelmingly for the GOP.

Surely, not all of them! That composite girlfriend of his could have been alright. Maybe, that Julia girl from the cartoon, too.
