    To me, it makes no difference that it was the first lady, in fact a first lady has to expect that kind of thing, especially if you are married to "enemies" Obama.

    We have had seven years of over-the-top bashing of anyone remotely related to a political opponent. For the left to go ape **** over this is beyond the pale....when they started in on Palin, he "slut" daughter, the rules of engagement changed, they changed them, now they have to live with them.

    I have said since 2008 that Obama and co have lowered the bar of common decency; I have zero sympathy for Michelle or anyone else in that den of snakes


    He has been fired and nothing that anyone on this planet says is going to get him his job back.

    Wait and see.

    What you think doesn't matter, the guys been fired and that's the end of it.

But because apparently that has to do with her skin color (even though he never said that), and I'd like you to explain why. Can you?

    You see, V, you only have part of the story.

    Bush is WHITE.

    I think you can take it from there.

    If you're singing such songs, you've got bigger problems to deal with than what some fashionista commented about.

    I'm not singing those songs because I'm so obsessed with race.

    I'm a work in progress.

    I'm not the one with a problem - race means nothing to me. I'm not fixated on the colour of someone's skin. If your true feelings are reflected in your comment, you're the one in denial.

    The author of the OP posted a follow-up link in post 30 that provides that information and the guy fired, in a statement, said that Michelle Obama got him fired.
