Listen Up Knuckleheads! Michelle Is Speaking...

Updated on August 16, 2012

Yes, She May Be Talking To You...

Strange that as I create this article over time that it as identified as "being at risk of being substandard." I publish the You Tube and then come back to do more and read that? Wassup with that? So I add a picture and two sentences and "Viola" the warning goes away. As the GEICO lizard says in the recent commercial, "This is a strange world I'm in." So off I go about the latest from Moochelle, or at least part of the latest. I'll leave the Egg McMuffin out of this.

I read recently that First Ladies are like children - they should be seen and not heard. I have to agree with that because as soon as they enter the "political arena" they become fair game. . That seems to be the case with the current unelected First Lady. I'm not singling out a liberal versus a conservative because it really doesn't matter. We didn't elect her so that she can opine about politics.

But up flashes Moochelle on the Tom Joyner radio show to show us how brilliant she is and says the following, “All of us know that one person in our lives . . . that one knucklehead nephew that’s not registered to vote . . . That one neighbor that’s not really paying attention, or that one person in your office that’s confused about how Barack’s tax plan will benefit . . . that individual.”

Not wanting to be accused about being "out of context," I'll let you listen.

Now here's where I have a problem with ignorance and stupidity. Because someone is "undecided" doesn't make them a "knucklehead." Many people in our country are tax ignorant and especially ignorant of basic economics. That doesn't make them "knuckleheads." That makes them people who need to get up to speed. According to Moochelle, I am one of those knuckleheads in a sense. I decided long before her husband ever got elected that he didn't have a clue about economics and he has proven me to be right. I was never "confused" nor am I a "knucklehead." I have yet to see anything Obama has done close to what he told us all he could do about healing the planet, much less righting the fiscal ship of state. In my mind Moochelle is confused and a complete knucklehead. But then again, she's married to the disaster so she is prepared to go down with the ship.

Obama, as usual, is off base and an ideologue. Maybe you have failed to notice. He says one thing one day, then tries to do another thing shortly thereafter. Such is the case with Obama and taxes. This isn't the time to raise taxes on anyone. You don't raise taxes during a bad economy unless you care to make it worse. So is that Obama's intent? Many say that is exactly his design. He tried "his plan and it worked." I would hate to see the results of failed Keynesian economics. Whoops! We have been experiencing the Obama definition of something "working."

The fact is that too many "knuckleheads" headed to the polls in 2008 and voted for the most inexperienced, unqualified man to ever run for the Presidency of our nation. The first time she made reference to "knuckleheads" I gave the woman a pass. She spouted off at a rally in Pennyslvania then followed it up on the Joyner radio show. Want it? Here it is, "drag that 'knucklehead friend of yours' with you to the voting booth on election day. Bring that old knucklehead friend of yours. The one that's just kind of hanging out, he hasn't really registered, he's not really sure. Take that one." Her words, not mine.

That's all we need after close to four years of torture subjected upon the rest of us by uninformed knuckleheads who bought into the "hope and change" thing. Just muster up some more knuckleheads, doesn't matter if they're registered or not, just get em to the polls to vote for Barack. Now I ask you, "What in the hell has the voting process become in this nation of ours?" I would prefer an informed electorate not a bunch of knuckleheads flocking to the polls.

In order to counter the Obama progressive knuckleheads, I can only ask that the rest of us gather up 5 people who have become disgusted with the way politics has been festering in this nation for quite some time and take them to the polls with us when we go there in November. We started the correction in 2010 and need to continue to right the ship of state. In the interim lets work on educating people rather than trying to poison them with the class warfare we are having to witness being waged by a pretender who said he was going to be "The Great Uniter." If you really expected that then look in the mirror closely and see if there are any knuckles on your noggin. A politican will be, first and foremost, a politician.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Remember In November!

      "First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner."

      That's the rumor, but there's no actual proof. But is that why his author's bio said he was born in Kenya, and was not corrected until 2008?

      Is that why all his records are kept secret?

      Who knows?

      Reading the Liberal comments is as good a laugh as I'll get this week. The list of Oblame-o's "Firsts". It takes a long time to get through. Great reading.

      Quit trashing President Obama's accomplishments. He has done more than any other President before him. He has an impressive list of accomplishments:

      First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

      First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

      First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

      First President to violate the War Powers Act.

      First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

      First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

      First President to spend a trillion dollars on 'shovel-ready' jobs when there was no such thing as 'shovel-ready' jobs.

      First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

      First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.

      First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign.

      First President to terminate America 's ability to put a man in space.

      First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.

      First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

      First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

      First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke-out on the reasons for their rate increases.

      First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.

      First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).

      First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.

      First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).

      First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-Corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

      First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

      First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.

      First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office, 102 to date.

      First President to spend millions hiding his medical, educational and travel records.

      First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING.

      First President to go on multiple global “apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.

      First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayer.

      First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

      First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

      First President to repeat the Holy Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

      First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences”.

      Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

      First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).

      How is this hope and change working out for you? THERE'S AN ELECTION COMING UP... REMEMBER THIS LIST WHEN YOU VOTE!

      It is getting much more difficult for even the media to come up with glowing reports on their golden boy, so I guess Michelle decided she better help the cause. She has learned to love living in the White House and all the lavish all expenses paid vacations. Little did she realize that by so doing, she would become fair game to those who disagree with her or her husband. I hope she keeps it up because she is not that skilled at what she is attempting to do.

      I suspect that the constant media gushing over the less than spectacular Obama presidency has resulted in a backlash, and that includes his wife.

      Sorry, but when Michelle decided to enter the fray, she knowingly exposed herself to criticism like this. She does not need your defense.

      Brupie - Sorry your sensitive liberal feelings have been hurt by the truth. I don't write to please the liberal mind so understand that. If you are in the category of being one of the knuckleheads who voted for the Knucklehead-In-Chief then you have nothing to say other than admit you made a big mistake. Try it sometime. My rationale is right there if the reader thinks critically and not emotionally, as you seem to prefer to do.

      What an astonishing piece of hypocrisy! The author doesn't like that the First Lady used a derisive term for non-voters and people who she considers ignorant. The response? A stream of invective, ad hominem and unsupported assertions.

      I suggest you stop reading your fan mail and take the time to read and edit your ramblings. An article isn't a good article simply because people like your conclusions, you should offer some rationale.

      Wow. Can't believe I missed the "knucklehead" quote. True, I've been mostly offline for a few days (multiple days of 100% overcast here, very little solar power, just now got some sunshine back)...but that's not much of an excuse.

      I've had a problem with the term "knucklehead" since I was a kid. My old man never once cussed at me. I'll give him that. But there were many times when he did call me a knucklehead, bonehead, knothead, etc. As a result, those are fighting words in my world. When it started, I wasn't near bold enough (at age 9 or whatever, the first time he sent me to get a tool and I couldn't find it where I thought he told me to look) to take him on in a fistfight. He was, after all, a five-six, 215 lb. WWII Navy vet who came out of service on a MENTAL discharge after his ship was sunk by the Japanese. Didn't tackle that particular challenge until I was 16, thank you very much.

      But now? Well, ol' Michelle just done went and made this thing personal.

      The individual who is not registered to vote exists in that situation for a reason. Some may be knuckleheads, since those folks are obviously well scattered throughout humanity. But there are many other reasons. So as not to hijack your Hub, I'll mention just one: My stepson, Zach.

      He IS registered now, voting this year for the first time in his life at the age of 26. His wife votes with him; she's 20

      Why did he not register earlier? Because (a) the very idea intimidated him and (b) he did not yet comprehend the vital importance of doing so. We never TOLD him he "needed to register"--but from time to time, he'd hear Pam &/or me talking about the importance of every vote (especially this year) as we gear up to give Obama the boot.

      In the end, HE made the decision out of his own awareness and concern for the future his own two sons would be facing.

      You know, I don't blame Obama for being afraid of Michelle. One of those muscled arms of hers can throw and break him as if he was a twig. Why the woman thinks she can throw her weight around is a mystery. And then Obama thinks she should get paid?! They are so tacky.

      It might be time for us little people to start contacting some of the companies who advertise their products on these highly slanted TV stations. We let them know we disagree with the policies of that station or network, and will refuse to purchase their products as long as they spend their advertising money with them. One thing they all understand is money. I know of no other way we will ever get this distortion of the truth they call news changed. I know it sounds crazy, but think about it.

      Michelle Should really listen to herself. How can we have an informed electorate if the MSM is gagged by federal agencies? Only a minority get their news from independent sources, like pure internet news sites, and news magazines owned by companies that don't own TV stations. The truth is that even newspapers are gagged, because most major dailies are owned by holding companies that also own TV stations. The latter can be fined or have their licenses non-renewed if the former get out of line. At least one person in the Administration went to far as to say that all news outlets should be owned by the federal government. Propaganda is not freedom of the press.

      Your summation, FrogPrince, is brilliant and true. "A politician, will be, first and foremost, a politician." Therein lies the conundrum. From what I've seen as government in action leads me to believe that, first and foremost, rising through the ranks of politics is only successful through corruption.

      And, politics as unusal, means figuring out the lesser of the evils. The statements made by Michelle Obama are about as embarrassing as Mitt Romney introducing Paul Ryan as the next president. Ya gotta wonder, in both parties, who's really running the show. As far as transparency, the only truth I see is that they are all deceptive liars.

      Very provocative writing, Frog Prince.

      It's astounding to realize that after nearly four years as the leader of the free world, we still know almost nothing about this very secretive man, other than the slow revealing of his increasingly far-left views.

      Dedicated and honest law enforcement computer experts in Arizona have determined that the birth certificate that Barack Obama posted on the White House website is a nine layer, computer manipulated document, and not simply a scanned BC. Why is that? To what purpose?

      Does that mean he's not a citizen? Not at all. It means he's hiding something. What could that be?

      Your Highness, laugh if you will but I think the Moocher is the power behind the throne.

      He told us where he went to school, but we can't believe that 'cause he won't release his transcripts. The first anyone seems to have seen Barry was when he was sleeping in his car and attempting to help people in Chicago.

      Moochelle is a product of the Chicago system - her father worked for the City for 40-odd years. You didn't get a job in Chicago unless you were tight with Daley, even if you're a garbageman. There has to be a connection.

      So someone sees this kid in his car and realize that since he's 1/2 white and eloquent he might have a chance to reach high places. Call me racist - It doesn't bother me anymore. I know I'm not - I just can't stand these two.

      "Poor" Moochelle married the guy in her own self-interest, knowing he'd reach those high places where women aren't quite there yet.

      And she's traveled the world on our dime. Don't forget the kids' friends!! Or Granny - or 40 Secret Service agents or the plane and crew and gas for the plane or the best suite in the fanciest hotel...

      I'm starting to bore myself!

      I hope Moochelle's plea for the knucklehead vote is some indication of how desperate the Obama camp has become as the election approaches. You know, if she had come out and said what she meant, she would have really sounded stupid...translated..."gather up those folks around you who do not have a clue how bad my husband is and take them to vote for him." Between Moochelle and Biden, the next few months should be chocked full of stuff like this....not to mention Lady M's scolding of the gold medal olympic athlete on television for eating a Egg she owns the right! ~WB

      Another great one Frog.

      I disliked Michelle when she stated that she was proud to be American for the first time only because her husband was the president elect. She has flip flopped numerous times since, sometimes she has played the cheerleader wife who "has no interest in politics", and sometimes she is shooting her mouth off.

      You got this one right, definitely. I would say she was the knucklehead. Why would you drag someone down to the polls, who is so lazy that they won't even register? They can't vote if they aren't registered anyway.
