On NBC's Today Show she claimed that Michelle Obama made it thanks to racial quotas (in other words... she was never qualified for anything).
My question is... why does the national media give these crazies a platform to spew this poison? Legitimate opinionated Progressives can't get on the airwaves...but Conservative loons are on all day and night...on both TV and Radio. There is no shortage of them. It's amazing.
This is why Progressives need to own their own networks...from top to bottom.
While it's true that Obama has surrounded himself with questionable characters...indeed cronies (I myself have criticized this), I don't think there is any comparison to Republicans when it comes to corruption. As bad as Obama's staff and Cabinet choices are, and as much of a walking contradiction he is on the issue of "insiders", his Administration is light years away from the cronyism and corruption that we witnessed under the Bush-Cheney Administration. It's not even apples and oranges. But Rethugs have to use propaganda to sell books (and the national media always willfully helps to peddle this stuff... it's poisoning the Country).
She also states that Obama is ruining the economy, lol. Uhhhh, earth to Michelle Malkin... the last Republican Administration, with the help of their allies in big business and on Wall Street, already ruined the economy long before Obama became President. I guess she had blinders on during the last few years of the Bush Administration. There is no possible way that she could believe her own nonsense.... instead what she is trying to do is take advantage of the American public's short and fickle memory... to trick folks into believing that the bad economy is Obama's fault. Malkin and her fellow Republican spinsters are of course glossing over the fact that Obama inherited an economy in severe recession and in some respects in a depression. Or the fact that the recession began in December of 2007.
What's scary is that this Right Wing propaganda campaign is actually starting to gain traction. More proof that the nation's education system needs an overhaul (I have been saying this for years). With an American public this clueless and gullible.... this Country is in serious trouble.
