Michelle Obama 2020 coming into focus with Memoirs release just after 2018 midterms

Michelle Obama 2020 coming into focus with Memoirs release just after 2018 midterms

Team Obama moving the pieces into place to set up the battle Democrats want: An Obama versus Trump.

I don’t know if I was the first to predict it, but I’m claiming the title of The First anyway.

In our January 1, 2018 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.

When Michelle appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’s 60th Birthday show in late January, I tweeted She’s Running, and wrote Michelle Obama 2020. Yes She Can. But will she run?

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.

I noted this Drudge headline at the time:

When on February 1, 2018, Michelle told frightened Americans:  ‘All we have is hope’– my response was She’s Running:

So imagine my *surprise* when I saw that Michelle will be rolling out her Memoir just after the 2018 midterms:

Michelle Obama’s memoir, one of the most highly anticipated books in recent years, is coming out Nov. 13.

The former first lady tweeted Sunday that the book, to come out a week after the 2018 midterm elections, is called “Becoming.”

“Writing ‘Becoming’ has been a deeply personal experience,” she said in a statement. “It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story.”

The timing fits perfectly with my prediction. It’s too soon to signal presidential intentions, but not too early to plan ahead.

Let the commoners like Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and assorted other Democrat hopefuls jockey for position. They do not have the star power of Michelle. It’s why there was a rush to embrace Oprah when after her Golden Globes speech — Democrats are desperate for someone who can spark the Obama magic once again, who can serve to unify and motivate various factions of the party the way Mr. Obama did.

Who better than a real Obama? Someone whose narrative will be another first.

Indeed the book publisher is reminding potential readers that Michelle already has accomplished one First (emphasis added):

As first lady of the United States of America — the first African-American to serve in that role — she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world,” Crown [Publishing] said in a statement.

“In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her_from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.”

Don’t doubt that if Michelle chooses to run, she will win the Democrat nomination. Her candidacy will suffocate all others. They dare not deprive the Democrat Party of an Obama third term.

Drudge also sees the book rollout as part of a 2020 Vision:

On Instagram the book promotion by Michelle is taking off, generating many thousands of likes and comments within a couple of hours:

The same reaction and excitement accompanied Michelle’s Twitter announcement:

Ain’t no stopping her now.

All she has to do is just Say Yes to the Nomination.

So playing the sexist card didn’t work against Trump.

So now they’re trotting out somebody with the personality of a piece of cardboard so they can play the sexist AND racist card against Trump.

I say – DO IT.

Solution of ipecac has nothing on the ability to induce the gag reflex as does looking at a photo of this beast.

What’s mooochelle going to title it, “My Excellent Free Ride?”

Will Bill Ayers be writing this book, too?

Will the book include ‘before’ photos?

What trash.

Doing for the country what she did for school lunches. Will the Obamas please just go away quietly? You blew your first chance, you don’t deserve another.

    Touche!

    la la la la la (singing to the tune of that old cake company ad slogan)

    “Everybody doesn’t like something! But nobody likes Michelle!”

    la la la la la

    Snark!

“Becoming”?

With all the tranny rumors out there? The memes write themselves…

    InEssence in reply to RedEchos. | February 25, 2018 at 4:04 pm

    I was thinking the same thing. For example, Michele could be saying, “I hate America as much as I hate dressing like a MAN!” This is going to be fun.

      C. Lashown in reply to InEssence. | February 26, 2018 at 5:41 pm

      Fun…until the suits coming knocking on your front door to arrest you for hate speech. If the Obama tribe get back into power the country will be flooded with the EU dogma of hate speech and a few million muslim ‘refugees’.

well, now we know how Bill Ayers has been spending his time recently…

anyone who has ever tried to read his/her college thesis knows how illiterate s/he is, so, if this book is even remotely coherent, we’ll know it was ghost written…

or is “ghost” racist? 😎

Subtitled: “The audacity of dreams from my becoming really proud of my country for the first in my adult life as an angry black woman with really buff guns who made school children eat cardboard before appearing in a truly bizarre portrait painted by an artist who likes to depict black women decapitating white folk because we’re not done with America’s fundamental transformation when hope is all we have”

The NY Times already has it on their best sellers list.

Some of the people who ate those lunches will be old enough to vote.

    JOHN B in reply to Petrushka. | February 25, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    Unfortunately, since none of these students were taught actual history, dates, etc., the media and teacher’s unions will blame Trump for the bad food and the students will believe it.

    Only an evil racist white guy would force black children to eat s**t or go hungry.

1. I don’t think winning the nomination will be all that easy. Lot’sof wannabes out there who will be fighting her. I also don’t know how effective the media will be after Bernie ( and all the collusion between the media and Hillary ).
2. Think of all those kids who had to suffer through her school lunch becoming eligible to vote in there first presidential election.

    alaskabob in reply to RodFC. | February 25, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    The decision to run does not rest with the Democrat voters, it rests with the Politburo of the Party. The last election proved this. The Clintons, as with Feinstein, are now the “unchosen”. At least the GOP derailed the anointed Bush family but it lingers with the Dems.

    Winston Churchill said that socialism produces the equality of shared misery.

    The bitter half will have to fight Cory Booker who is backed by both Dim money & the Koch brothers. He a “0” clone with the same basic political pedigree. He and Rand Paul are working together on prison reform.

Do we really need Michelle Obama when Jennifer Lawrence has promised to quit acting until she fixes all our problems?

I felt queasy this morning. This is not helping… nope, not one bit.

So what will be her platform? Change back 2020?

“one of the most highly anticipated books in recent years”

Yeah, right. Lines are forming at Barnes & Noble as I type this.

    JOHN B in reply to hrhdhd. | February 25, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    The librarian unions and organizations controlled by Dems will make each library buy dozens of copies to pump up the sales.

    And teachers will be required to order this for their students or else get tarred as racist. Millions more sold – and Michelle gets richer off the suffering of school children.

While anything can happen I’d have to say this is a stretch.

While it was widely known that Hillary was deeply interested in being part of the government from Bill’s first campaign (remember all the ‘twofer’ talk?) Michelle Obama has never given me that vibe. She may have been activist but she still stuck pretty much in the First Lady wheelhouse. I don’t remember her having a portfolio handed to her like Hillary’s healthcare debacle.

Barak is going to be taken down a peg or two in the next few years if the economy stays relatively on track and we avoid any major wars/terror incidents (though those might rebound to Trump’s favor as 9/11 did for W). Democrats might pine for the return of a moribund economy driven by cronyism and abject surrender overseas but even they will be hard pressed to describe his tenure in office as better than current conditions.

Barak’s popularity is notoriously untransferable. Remember his vain boast before 2010 that he would help the Dems retain the House after passing Obamacare? Even when he was on the ballot Democrats down ticket didn’t benefit. After eight years of his presidency the Dem party is at it’s lowest ebb since the first party of the previous century.

Finally, it was often noticeable that Barak was much more interested in acting Presidental than actually being President. In a word, he’s lazy. He was perfectly happy being an IL backbencher until other people moved him onto the path to the Presidency. Going back to my first point, I don’t see Michelle as having a particular interest in putting in the effort to run. She’ll be happy to go along for the ride if somebody else is driving but I suspect she’s satisfied with being the ex-First Lady.

Barack Obama had the benefit of being a “blank slate” when he first ran for president. Not so with Michelle… we have seen her hatred for America and at least half of Americans. I also doubt that many moderates and very few conservatives will fall again for the “racial healing” promise from anyone named Obama. So sure, go for it.

Book title is, Becoming. Is that right….?

Well, heck then, does that mean Michelle LaVaughn Robinson-Obama will be writing all about her Becoming the legally hitched hanger-on to the man whose coattails she would ride to the White House, and to the man whom would start his political career as a “Community Organizer” who would then be molded into a Senator and then made POTUS one day because he was arbitrarily and unilaterally declared the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” by his political running-mate, as well as dishing about all of her subsequent taxpayer provided life coaches, doctors, charm lessons, wardrobes, makeup artists, plastic surgeries, hair straightening, permanent hair removal, wigs, weaves, skin treatments, various liposuctions and all the substantial things that she just had to avail herself of while living in the lap of luxury and hobnobbing with Hollywood Celebrities and Hip-Hop Stars in The People’s White House on the taxpayer dime in order to change that actual, in reality, America-loathing angry, ugly, hairy, feral little proglodyte ghetto hoodrat ‘blackpower’ girl into the totally fake and oh-so now patriotic tony upper east side smoove operator cinnamon chocolate mama that finally got a piece of the pie — that we’ve all been conned into thinking we now know and are about to get to know a whole lot better with her multi-million dollars book deal…..?

Oh. Wait. Nope. No way that can happen. Would mean being honest and telling the truth. Nevermind.

Whoever controls the super-delegates wins.

Michelle would get Hillary’s super-delegates (which means enough to win the DNC nomination….ask Bernie) the second she announced.

Feminism has come full circle; men and women require chaperones to monitor interactions between them; if you want to “make out” or more, you need to get married; and now if you want to be somebody, you need only marry well.

It would be insufferable

She should try diet and exercise in her spare time. She has a lotofit and needs every minute.

It occurs to me that Hollywood and the DNC have so much hubris that they think they can sell this like they can sell any movie and make into a blockbuster. I’m not sure they can anymore.

I watched Hillary’s “What Happened” hit the shelves at the local Walmart, already 40% reduced, and all two copies sat for several weeks before half of them were sold. I expect similar success for this latest literary tour-de-force…

Not only too overbearing, but no longer stealth like her hubby.

Gag… one benefit would be watching her ‘debate’ that Kamala Harris person… I’m thinking it would be like two, ahem, ladies getting angrier and angrier and then having a wrestling match … kinda like shopping on ‘black Friday’ … ya know, the ‘Chicago way’…

yeah, that would be entertaining…

There is no ‘there’ there policy wise …

“The Insufferable Smugness of ‘Becoming Michelle Obama'”.

So for their presidential candidate, the Democrat party is going to run a completely inexperienced candidate with little charisma, no real ability to make speeches, no distinguishing accomplishments… or positive ones, at least…

What, is the Republican party going to run McCain again?

“Yeah, right. Lines are forming at Barnes & Noble as I type this.”

Surely, you mean Borders.

It’s not clear to me who’s got the power in the Democrat party now. Does the Clinton machine retain any clout? They surely wouldn’t promote Michelle Obama. I think the radicals are more likely to go for Kamala Harris.

    Massinsanity in reply to tarheelkate. | February 26, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    Hilary has not given up yet. It should be a heck of a show in 2020… Hilary, Michele, Bernie, Fauxahontas, Kamala and uncle Joe with the wandering hands…

[…] Yup, s/he’s running. […]

This should be a real hoot. Will he only speak to the eight years his tranny ass was in the White House or will there be more?

She and her empty suit husband had the greatest opportunity to change the racial dynamics in America for years to come and both of them blew it! obama couldn’t help but parrot his “Street creds” when he ALWAYS took the side of the black in any incident and michelle went after fat kids! They could have started a new generation of black kids on the path of personal responsibility and education but instead, they took the opportunity to show them how to remain victims and reap the spoils of white guilt. I hope and pray this idiot will run and then she will be exposed for the failure of her term as first lady and her hatred of America.

Can you imagine what Trump will make of the Democrats running two consecutive First Ladies at him? Michelle doesn’t even have Hillary’s subsequent (and no-achievement) political offices, she’d be straight out of the First Lady role and running for President. Already we know what nickname Trump will give her: FIRST LADY OBAMA. Let the sound of that reverberate inside your noggin for a while — how many Trump votes will that be worth?

Yep. And if you go after her you’re a racist, or hate women.
Get out the styrofoam.

David R. Graham | February 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Yup, and I have been saying this for nearly two years. It’s sort of obvious.

The “secret” meet-up at MIT last Friday was, I suspect, to announce her candidacy and assign responsibilities. Immediately after, Drudge runs picture of her as 2020 “?” Timing is too close to mean otherwise in re the MIT meet-up. They are orchestrating very carefully. Far more carefully than they would “rule.”

In 2014, referencing Jonathan Gruber in the Boston Herald, Howie Carr wrote (link is stale now, article itself not included, just video): “Do you realize that every last one of the many disasters that has befallen this nation in the last half-century can be traced right back here to the banks of the Charles River?”

http://www.bostonherald.com/news_opinion/columnists/howie_carr/2014/11/carr_jonathan_gruber_is_just_another_goober_from

Yup again.

Bernadine Doehrn as ghostwriter, I’m thinking …

So, who did the translation from the original Klingon?

Hey…
It is a free Country.
If she can find enough lipstick to put on this book she had someone write for her…
Fine with me.

Limbaugh correctly pointed out that this explains Donna Brazile’s unexpected outing of Hillary in her own book. Brazile is an Obama stooge, and her book was battlefield preparation to clear the field for Michelle.

This is extremely frightening. Michelle is the best candidate the Obama Democrats could hope for. Apart from the horrible programs she would continue, her election would be another step in establishing political dynasties in America.

The Friendly Grizzly | February 28, 2018 at 12:47 pm

She can’t even hide the anger in a campaign poster. She’s a regular laugh a minute, that woman….
