Michelle Obama does NOT need an image makeover..

 

Here’s why..

How many of us have attractive, intelligent, out-spoken, confident women in our family? I bet you can name at least a couple would you CHANGE her/them?

How many of us know of a woman who would put us in our place in a minute if we got out of line? And that includes your mom, would you tell HER to shut up? You wouldn’t dare….lol

How many of us know of a woman/women that are just as witty and just as sharp tongued as any man? And that could include the female co-worker who just told you that ‘dirty’ joke..(come on, we all know and like her..lol..)

How many of us know of a woman that pulled herself up by her bootstraps, kept her head down and powered through and MADE IT against all odds? Hasn’t she earned our respect?

She’s the woman, who was the first in her family to get a college education, or the high school drop out who refused to take welfare and worked two jobs to support her family and is now the proud matriarch of a family, loved and respected by all, or even the girl next door who took a few wrong turns but finally got her act together and though she doesn’t have the fancy degree or the greatest job everybody in the neighborhood is glad to see that she’s not doing that ‘s$%$’ anymore…

I ask again how many of us know of a woman/women like that?

MICHELLE OBAMA, is not and will not be the typical first lady but this country is not the typical country.

Her image does not need softening, neither does it need a makeover or even a ‘re introduction’ what the Obama camp needs to do is allow Michelle to be Michelle.

She’s a daughter, sister, wife, mother and a working woman…tell me how many women are all those things and then some?

Yes, she might say some controversial things. Yes, she might make a few slip ups that could cost Obama a few news cycles. And yes she should be a bit more careful when she’s on the stump but in the end Michelle Obama is who she is and unlike some who claim that she too, is applying for the job of ‘first lady’ I beg to differ the job of first lady is already pre-determined, if he wins you can be assured she’s gonna get the job but the role just like the office will change somewhat depending on the person who occupies it.

As an intelligent, attractive, outspoken, confident and less I forget ‘fashionable’, lol, black woman, for the first time in my life probably and hopefully, fingers and toes crossed, next year I will see a black woman who too exemplifies all these qualities be called ‘Madam First Lady’.

In the past our first ladies were white and we admired (Jackie Kennedy and Eleanor Roosevelt are two of the seven women I would like to have dinner with..if it were possible…)  and continue to admire their personal traits and qualities.

In the future, our first lady might be an attractive, intelligent, out-spoken, confident, fashionable black woman and I’m willing to bet that we wouldn’t stop admiring and respecting those qualities in her.

  1. All true. She is fantastic and will me a much better role model to the young women in this world than Hillary Clinton would have been. A strong woman in the white house – can’t wait.

    Thanks for writing this.

  2. Speaking of First Lady Michelle Obama:

    Michelle Obama is a racial-minority individual, and in her heart and mind she inevitably does not endorse hate crimes committed by George W. Bush.

    George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    Bush has a lot to worry about.

    Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time.

    In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

    I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memories so they never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think the quotation came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.
