Michelle Obama 2020. Yes She Can. But will she run?

Michelle Obama 2020. Yes She Can. But will she run?

Not running yet, but all is proceeding as predicted, a hapless hopeless Democrat party crying out for hope and a 3rd Obama term.

In our January 1 Predictions post, I made the following 2018 predictions (emphasis added):

1. Republicans will pick up 4 net seats in the Senate, and hold the House with a reduced majority of 10-15.
2. Robert Mueller will bring criminal charges for obstruction (lying to federal investigators) or crimes pre-dating or unrelated to the Trump campaign against more people, but will not assert any criminal conduct with regard to “Russia collusion” or by President Trump.
3. Get ready. This is the BIG ONE. If as predicted Republicans hold the Senate and House, there will be a clamoring for a Democrat candidate who can unify and motivate the Democrat base and establishment sufficiently to defeat Donald Trump in 2020: Michelle Obama.

All is preceding as predicted.

The Democrat field for 2020 is hapless and hopeless, and moving hard to the left. The great hope was Oprah, and she’s out. There is no hope left. No inspiration. No unifying figure. And the generic ballot is closing, so Democrats retaking the House is at best a toss up, and chances in the Senate are a long shot (though not impossible).

So then this happens. Michelle Obama is appearing on the Ellen Show. The second I saw that, I tweeted: “She’s running.”

https://twitter.com/LegInsurrection/status/957988666818908160

Then I saw that Drudge has the same idea:

The Hill reports on the appearance:

Michelle Obama is marking Ellen DeGeneres’s birthday with her first TV interview since leaving the White House.

The former first lady will appear on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to celebrate the host’s 60th birthday, the show announced on Monday. The audience for the first of two birthday-themed shows will be “filled with people who are paying it forward” and have participated in DeGeneres’s #OneMillionActsofGood campaign, according to the daytime talk program.

Obama, 54, has kept a decidedly lower profile since exiting the executive mansion last January, but was a frequent guest on DeGeneres’s show as first lady.

The appearance is not an announcement, and rumors likely will be denied.

But is it coincidence that Mr. Obama is getting active in the 2018 midterms on behalf of Democrats? That he’s reasserting himself as a political figurehead?

Michelle Obama — the 3rd Obama term.

Wait for it.

When was the last time Michelle had a real job? Twenty years ago? I doubt she wants to jump into the fire of a presidential campaign.

    Agreed. Barack already pretty much has universal golfing privileges across the nation, so why would Michelle run ?

      BREAKING: More Democrat Party Lies Revealed!

      “Democrat Block Gay Trump Nominee

      “…all Republicans voted for Grenell and all Democrats voted against him, so this is not the case where Republicans are blocking the nomination of a gay man because of cultural or religious objections, he said.

      Rather it is the Democrats, who are abandoning their support of equality with their opposition to a highly-qualified nominee to one of the country’s most important diplomatic posts–keeping it vacant for more than a year, he said.”

    She doesn’t want the hassle of the campaign, but she wants the role.

    First female president? YES!
    Beat Hillary as first female President? DOUBLE YES!

    4 more years of power? YES!
    4 more years of celebrities/world leaders kissing your YKW? YES!
    4 more years of grifting? YES!

    Showing your hubby how its done? YES. Everyone knows she was behind all the decisions in the first 8 years anyway.

    Making sure the Obama legacy lasts? YES! Cuz that was Michelle’s legacy too. Everyone knows she was behind everything anyway. See that last one.

    4 more years of telling racist Americams who’s boss now? YES, the little bitter clingers need to hear it and get over it.

    4 more years of knocking America down while trumpteting your own virtue-signalling morally superior vision and at the same time getting rich off of other peoples’ taxes? HELL YES, what else is the point of being queen?

    She was always more ambitious than Barry, in my opinion. She wants to be queen, without a doubt. And President is the closest we have to that role.

    Observer in reply to Eddie Baby. | January 29, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    I tend to doubt she’ll run. Michelle has too much to lose. Right now she has what she has always wanted: lots of money, and the freedom to do what she wants. She also has a good public image, and undoubtedly wants to keep it. Problem for her is that her public image is mainly built on lies and b.s. The public was told by the Obama PR machine, and most still believe, that Michelle was a smart and successful lawyer in Chicago. In fact, she only got into Princeton and Harvard Law because of Affirmative Action (and family connections, in the case of Princeton). In her only job practicing law, as a junior associate at Sidley & Austin, the firm gave her a special partner “mentor” to hold her hand and help her out, but even with all the extra help, she still failed. She flunked the Illinois bar exam, and the firm sent her packing after just a few years. The jobs she held after that were non-lawyer, political patronage jobs that were made up for her “special” skills (which basically amounted to being married to a state senator and up-and-coming politician).

    Michelle is, by her own account, a “poor test-taker,” and such people tend not to do well in high-pressure, high-stakes events like presidential debates or unscripted press conferences. Of course, as they did with her husband, the media would do everything in its power to try and protect Michelle and hide her mistakes, but Michelle lacks Barry’s intelligence and glibness, and it is doubtful that the media could keep the public from seeing her many, many flaws.

    So why would Michelle want to risk exposing herself as not-terribly-bright and destroy her own carefully-crafted public image just so she could return to the confines of the White House she hates? Perhaps her overblown ego, or the enticements of all the Obama-worshippers whispering in her ear will eventually get the best of her, but I tend to think that her own sense of self-preservation will keep her on the sidelines.

      willow in reply to Observer. | January 29, 2018 at 3:28 pm

      Totally agree. Well said.

      “Michelle is, by her own account, a “poor test-taker…”

      The usual rationale for people who lack scholastic talent, but have big mouths and bloated senses of self. (Bloated fits well, here.)

      What an ugly POS, both in body and mind.

      But then, after watching hillary klinton drink her way across the world and accomplish nothing, and watching barack get up late, watch tv and fill-out checked-forms for a half hour, smoke dope, party, travel, get nobel prizes for nothing and get softballs from the corrupt democrat media, mooooooochelle probably thinks high office is an easy gig.

      Mooooooochelle Obama said she was proud of U.S. only after Barack Obama became president:
      http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2017/feb/23/david-clarke-jr/david-clarke-says-michelle-obama-said-she-was-prou/

      Let her live in north korea for a few years. (That’d be a win-win: we’d get rid of her, she’d learn what it is to have a country to be ashamed of, and kim would probably bargain anything away just to get rid of her.)

        notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to TheFineReport.com. | January 29, 2018 at 4:39 pm

        “poor test-taker…”? Isn’t that also one of the biggest excuses given by cheaters when caught?

          That’s a double whammy: poor ability and poor character.

          She never got busted for cheating in law school (she didn’t have to: she was simply handed her passing grades.) Though she did lose her law license.

          What democrat presidential candidate has not been a complete disgrace? (Including Bernie Sanders (and his scummy wife) who are being investigated for massive fraud:

          “In order to expand the college, Sanders sought to obtain a tract of land from a Roman Catholic parish. She secured a $6.7 million loan from a bank and a $3.6 million loan from the parish from which she planned to purchase the property. But she resigned in 2011 amid allegations that she purposely inflated and made up the amount of money donors have pledged to the school and provided incorrect information to a bank to get the loan. Multiple individuals, who were listed as college donors, have since come forward denying the commitments.”

        Thanks for the smile! Considering Mooch in a North Korea work camp just lightened my mood by 50 pounds!

      Barry is “glib”? Umm, have you, ah, ever heard, um, him talk, uh, without, ahh, a tela, um, prompter?

She?

She has the Wookie vote inthe bag.

She liked the adulation AND THE JEWELRY she got in other countries while he was POTUS.

After the way the left has gone after Melania, Nikki Haley and Sarah Huckabee, she had better get ready. I have held my tongue for 8 years of lies by her husband, and I will not hold back what I think of her anymore. I have been called a racist more times than I care to mention, and don’t really care anymore what they call me.
I hardly think she could handle it.

Not. Going. To. Happen. It would reopen inquiries into Obama’s multiple criminal and treasonous actions while occupying the Oval Office.

Would she really be that tone deaf?

After the train crash that was her husband’s presidency would she REALLY want to get on the bus and expose herself to Real Life?

What if HRC ends up going down and dragging Barry with her?

See, I don’t believe even the Obama’s are THAT delusional. Then again, maybe they are.

In fairness, she’s just as qualified for the job as her husband was.

    ROTFL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Michelle let me quote Oprah to you: you “don’t have the DNA for it” Michelle!

G. de La Hoya | January 29, 2018 at 2:30 pm

Barack was at least able to keep his racism hidden for awhile. Michelle, not at all 🙂

I’m not ready for the first Transgendered President.

I don’t know if Michelle will *try* to run, but she won’t be welcome. The GOP remember what her husband was like, and won’t be voting for a return to it. Democrats remember how Obama destroyed their party, so at least a sizable minority won’t want her either.

DieJustAsHappy | January 29, 2018 at 2:47 pm

Might be a bit premature, particularly considering all the speculation about The Memo, its contents, and the potential repercussions. It just might turn out to be that even the Dems wouldn’t want another Obama anywhere near the Oval Office.

Not going to happen. Requires money from the big boys.

Don’t be naïve boys and girls. Michelle would run in a heartbeat and represents formidable competition.

With these two, it’s all about THE AGENDA. Barack had his agenda and he rolled it out and he got eight years. But … since a lot of the things he did were superficial and were not enacted into law, the current administration is reversing them, as it should. Much of Barack’s leftist agenda is falling by the wayside, and Trump is trying to Make America Great Again. What Trump is doing is 180° opposite what Øbama tried to do, which was to reduce this country to a second rate power.

If Trump does what I think he’s going to do, when we hit 2020, the country will be perking along well, and we’ll be in the middle of a dramatic turnaround from what happened under Øbama. And the left will be losing and losing badly.

So what can the Left do to get back into the game? Let’s get the Black vote and the female vote in one fell swoop. Michelle can clearly be carried on Barack’s legacy just as Hillary was carried on Bill’s. The problem with Bill’s legacy, however, is that he is corrupt and morally repugnant. Hillary just could not distance herself from all of that. It was one of a number of the things that got her.

Not so with Michelle. If she runs, she’ll have support from a yuge chunk of the electorate who could care a hoot whether she is qualified or even wants the job. A black woman with the Obama name and his same socialist agenda? 40% of the popular vote without even campaigning.

She’ll be a tough candidate for Trump to face, because she will be able to play BOTH the race and gender card at every opportunity. Think how much the country became divided under eight years of Øbama. He played Alinsky’s rules perfectly.

And as much as I like what Trump is doing, he’s not really a unifier or a conciliator. By the time 2020 comes around, the country will be doing well internationally and economically, but the degree of division and gender/racial animosity will be worse than it is now.

Michelle, like Barack, is glib and smooth. She’ll make some miscues, but she’ll get a pass on every one. Trump isn’t getting any passes now; why would one think he might get any in 2020?

I think Trump’s vision and accomplishments will be trumped (sorry) by her style and wide base of support.

My guess is that the nomination in 2020 is hers if she wants it—just like it was Oprah’s if she had wanted it. Given the win-at-all-cost mentality of the left, I think they’ll pull (push?) Michelle into it.

She’s the only one I see on the left who could defeat Trump in 2020. I wish I were wrong.

    willow in reply to tiger66. | January 29, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    I think she could beat Trump theoretically, but she won’t run. She could not handle the debates or any setting where she is entirely alone.

    Mooooochelle represents ‘formidable competition’ in that people who would NEVER vote for ANY Republican, would vote for her. Big deal.

    NOBODY who voted for Donald Trump will vote for her.

    She’s a polarizing figure. (Using the word ‘figure’ generously.)

    Her only votes would be the leftist base (didn’t help klinton, did it?) and some rats of the GOPe (whose number of votes add up to nothing.)

    Imagine this dummy in a debate? This time around, Candy Crowley won’t be there to debate for her like she did for barack, and like that idiot romney tolerated.

    Remember: obama is not a popular former president. He’s about to get even more dirty and disgraced.

    Most of American voters have had enough of al sharpton in the White House and hate-mongering, bloviating morons like moooochelle obama.

    The only formidable opposition presented by moooochelle obama is registered on her bathroom scale.

Mooooochelle’s campaign slogan:

“Because eight years of two incompetent, treasonous low-lifes in the White House wasn’t enough.”

What better way to hammer the republicans … her and her supporters will decry everything said against her or done in opposition to her … as being evidence of a racist belief by the right. It’s a superb opportunity to further fracture America.

In that photo, she must be fantasizing about free food.

Please run Michelle.

Please!!

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Icepilot. | January 29, 2018 at 5:07 pm

    LOL You’re wicked!

    Might as well encourage Hillary to run again also!

      Can’t be all female. But then, who knows … since Michelle is the one with the testicles in the family, she can just choose to have a ‘Y’ chromosome when her campaign starts.

      But the better choice for Michelle would be Al ‘Chicken-neck’ Sharpton. I’m sure they’d take all 58 States.

The only worse Demorat candidate than hillary clinton is michelle obama. They have the female vote down pat. michelle will have the black vote to at least 98%. But when they get on stage and start to tell us why they are running, then we get to why they haven’t a prayer. They both have hate-filled agendas and middle America is in their crosshairs. Basically all white males are deplorables and it would become obvious that hate is their main asset. The two of them are against almost everything that has made our country great, think personal responsibility, and that is their platform.

    Debate moderator Trey Gowdy: “Mrs. Obama, do you have any concerns about China?”

    Candy Crowley: “Yes, in fact — ”

    Gowdy: “Who asked you? Shut up and sit down? Mrs. Obama, do you have any concerns about China?”

    Obama: “Uh…yeah! The sh-t breaks too easy, and white people like you eat off it!”

    Candy Crowley: “I’d like to add — ”

    Gowdy: “Shut up. Mrs. Obama, what are your instincts about the Middle East?”

    Obama: “They probably vote for me more than the crackers living in the Middle West.”

    Candy Crowley: “And, she’ like to add — ”

    Gowdy: “Shut up. Interrupt one more time, and you’re outta here. Mrs. Obama, were would you be on the deficit?”

    Obama: “If I was on the Deficit, I’d be in a suite on at the top of the ship.”

    Candy Crowley: “She’d like to explain– ”

    Gowdy: “Sergeant at Arms?”

    (Crowley is moved from the room by ten policemen aided by a furniture dolly.)

    Gowdy: “Mrs. Obama, what is your stance on Israel?”

    Obama: “As you know, I’m with Farrakhan, Wright, Sharpton and Jackson: I can’t stand the hymies.”

    Crowley (as she’s dragged out the back door): “But she’d like to add — !….”

Why should Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackass Lee get all the credit for perpetuating every racial stereotype known to civil rights opportunism?

As it were, Hillary actually has better hair than Ms. Obama.

Eastwood Ravine | January 29, 2018 at 11:45 pm

All joking aside, why go with the Dems go with Michelle Obama when they already have Kamala Harris? She checks the same boxes, and minus the baggage.

I thought Michelle 0bama was going to run against Clinton in 2016.

That picture above is Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty is the flag.

Seriously ??? Who with a functioning Brain would believe she is qualified ?? Oh ya,, the DipShip Dems !! Don’t bother Ms. OBozo ,,, We The People had Enough of your other half !!!

I don’t know about running, but I bet that ape climbs trees real well!

While Moochie is a Communist at least she was born in America.

DeplorableLanie | January 30, 2018 at 1:36 pm

“A poor test taker” is a euphemism for an idiot who could not pass the bar exam! She can’t run the school cafeteria and she thinks she can run a country? Go for it Michael I dare you!

She’s not running. They would already be grooming her because she has zero track record to run on besides being the woman behind the man. She would get killed in the Dem primary debates.

And besides there’s videos of her reading those racist Dr. Seuss books to little kids.

That said, she has a $30 million book coming out soon. Maybe the title will be “Dreams of My Mother” where she outlines her manifesto. Like Creepy Joe Biden, she’ll get a lot of free advertising on her book and tv tours.

“She’s running.”

God help us all.

She is even further to the left than Barry. She probably is a surrogate mom for Barry and pushed him to the left, just like his radical real mom. Let her run and then expose her for the freak she is. She could take the whole donkey cabal down with her. No, we don’t want to elect a radical black socialist again.
