FIRST LADIES IN WAITING
According to Rasmussen Reports, 61% of voters say that their perception of the potential first lady is important and could sway their vote. The report says that Laura Bush, the most popular republican in the country at the moment, has a favorable rating of 75% among Americans. Michelle Obama is sporting a 48% favorable rating and Cindy McCain a 49% favorable rating. What is up? Michelle Obama has proven she needs to be put on a leash because the mouth run amok and Cindy McCain is not well known to many.
It looks as though these women have some PR to do. The American public isn't too thrilled with the wives of the Dalai Obama and the Old Man of the Sea. I have to admit I don't care for Michelle Obama. I don't identify with her at all. LMAO! Just kidding. We are both big mouthed opinionated women with chips on our shoulders! Practically twins! I just so happen to be the other side of the aisle and she and I chip away on the opposite ends of politics. I see her as having a life of privilege and I certainly did not. She has no reason to question the ability of women in America to achieve status and equality. She has the audacity of low expectations in Americans and quite frankly so does hubby. Both see a broken America because it has not fully adopted their idyllic philosophy. Is this not a perceived superior ideological view? Change agents? No. Washington agents. Both of them. America is not broken. Politicians are broken. And yep, so are their wives. What needs to change in America is Politicians who act like the end all, save all to Americans. The audacity of self empowerment.
I will miss Laura Bush. I admire her. Talk about a woman standing tall in adversity, now she is what I call a lady.
