When Laura was promoting literacy, that seemed less contentious than nutrition. When Hillary was charged with doing a lot of the leg work for a major public policy measure, that was when the traditionalism remark really made sense to bring up. Then there's the criticism of anyone connected to the administration. You'll see this with every administration. I do think that the criticism Michelle is getting is heavier than Laura, to be certain, but I don't think it is non-traditionalism.

The same case Michelle dismissed herself from and then by her own preference gave up her license.

    Yes.....I already knew what Fact Check said. Course their people weren't around when that judge was speaking. Not to mention there were no Cameras in the Court Room, nor a Court Steno.

    How can you be uppity and elitist?

    It seems that people are just getting tired of the 24/7 First Affirmative Action couple.

    I fail to see any issue with this whatsoever. I mean, really?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    At least Hollywood is now being completely open about partisanship.

    You must have missed the post about how Laura Bush was the first first lady to make an appearance with the Oscars in 2002.

    Here's a chance to get a free dinner.
    The People's Cube is offering a reward for any video evidence of Laura Bush presenting the Oscar for Best Picture (or any category) in 2002 (or any year.)
