If you happen to watch MSNBC as much as I do (I know, I know I have no life…lol) then you know the name and the face Michelle Bernard as CEO of a conservative women’s group and a Republican party supporter I’ve always wondered why she seems supportive of Obama’s candidacy and believe me I’m not the only one who’s noticed this.
After a comment by Chris Matthews on tonight’s Hardball about her heritage I now understand the enthusiasm she has repeatedly showed for Obama’s candidacy.
Bernard is the daughter of Jamaican immigrants and if you understand anything about the Caribbean and its people then you will understand why Michelle leans towards social and fiscal conservatism so that explains her political leanings.
However, at the same time she probably has a deep understanding of what it means to grow up black in America and also how significant and monumental it would be not only to America to have it’s first black president but also how much it would mean to all those in the black diaspora as well and this explains her Obama championing!
Hmm..now it all makes sense and by the way she’s separated from this guy..
BTW Sandy Leidholt took that awesome pix, check her out…
**Update** Why didn’t Michelle Bernard get her own show on MSNBC?
