Michelle Obama: I Couldn't Feed My Kids Right–Even with a Harvard Degree

Michelle Obama said that as a working mother it was difficult to ensure her children ate healthy meals. There was an attempt to make that a populist thing - I heard it on talk radio, at least.

Freepers are why the right-wing can't have nice empty populism.

F15Eagle quotes Michelle with context, and then purposely fails to understand her.
Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right

Couldn’t feed them on that $200,000 salary, Moochelle?

She lies like Hillary Clinton.
DariusBane took her out of context, making her seem dumb!
This is the sentence her Harvard degree made possible:

“as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy,”

Ghetto talk from the First Lady of the formerly great United States of America.
MrB knows poor people are all about healthy eating:
Can’t feed your kids right BECAUSE of your Harvard degree.
CatherineofAragon continues to be a pure anti-woman hate-ball.
Just how stupid are you, you repellent beast?
Jim from C-Town knows how to feed children.
Apparently she really Is a man and unable to lactate!
18 posts till NRA1995 makes with the first fat joke.
Well, looking at that big ass of hers, she couldn’t feed herself right so how could she feed the little boofers right?
nascarnation knows parents should teach how to be a working mom:
An indictment of her parents.
These are “tribal” skills that should be imparted long before college.
Cowboy Bob knows black people never deserve Harvard.
She has a Harvard* degree.

A Harvard* degree is awarded to Affirmative Action graduates.
Dagnabitt also with the pure insults:
She really is her own drag-queen. The giveaways are the huge hands, hulking frame, and marriage to a gay man.
ansel12's working Mom fed them, which means there are no challenges.
One of my mother’s tricks when we didn’t have food was to make cornbread and buy a quart of milk, and we would have a glass of corn bread crumbs and milk mixed, of course it wasn’t filling, but her trick was to sit at the table and talk to us, which was a treat since she was a single mom that had to ride the bus to and from work and so was gone until close to bedtime, and then had to do housework and dealing with us three boys baths and such during most of the little time that we saw her.

I think of this when I read about Obama and his PHD mom and rich grandmother, and Bill Clinton with his nurse anesthesiologist mom and car dealer step dad, and now Michelle’s struggles of two lawyers raising kids.

My mother with her 8th grade education and living in Houston, would not take a penny of government money, while the rich liberals moan about not being able to feed their kids properly.

    DariusBane is probably criticizing MO for not using the adverb form: "feed my kids healthily..." A mistake in standard English, certainly - but not what I'd call ghetto talk.

      (I actually teach English to kids who speak "ghetto," and MO's use of a complex sentence - with the subordinate clause out front, no less - is a dead giveaway that she speaks like a white person.)

    2. I always took her for a wookie

    3. oh ho ho how clever you are. We are all impressed.

  2. MO could be reciting Shakespeare or Tennyson and it would still be ghetto talk to some Freepers.

    1. What's she going to do? Trayvonthello?

    2. Diagram some Sarah Palin sentences and then get back to us on poor English.
