Michelle Obama was asked by a school child if she was going to run for president. Michelle said that she did not think so because she did not want to be president. She said that she knows her strengths and that she feels that people can help the country in many ways even if they are not leading it.
As an aside, Barack was asked this question not long after he entered the Senate and he said he was not going to run because he was not ready to be president. He was right about that part…
Anyway, here is the answer Obama gave:
“Being president is a really hard job and it’s an important job,” Obama said. “And when my husband is running for president, we’re right in there; we’re serving, too. And I think that once his terms are over, we’ll go on to do other important things — because there are so many ways that you can help this country and the world, even if you’re not president of the United States.
“And I think one of the things you learn about yourself as you get older are what are your strengths and what are your interests. And for me it’s other stuff that is not being the president. So I probably won’t run. But that’s a great question.” The Weekly Standard
Michelle Obama is absolutely correct in saying that there are many ways to help the country even if you are not the president.
in fact, it would help the country greatly if her husband were not president. If he had never been elected we would be better off and if he loses in November we will be a lot better off.
So to paraphrase her for better accuracy, there are lots of ways to help the country particularly by making sure Barack is not president.
I guess if she were to run we would not have to worry about her birth certificate.
In any event, one Obama was too much for this country to take.
She discusses this in terms of her husband being reelected. If he is reelected I am certain that Michelle will never run for the presidency.
Because if Barack is reelected there will not be a country left for anyone to lead.
UPDATE: My fantasy involves all of them.
Never surrender, never submit.
