In her National Review Online column, Michelle Malkin says, "...Mrs. Obama leveraged her hubby’s Senate victory to snag a lucrative seat on the corporate board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. despite having zero experience in the industry...", among oth...er accusations.
Most people, who sit on these boards (including myself) have little or no prior experience in whatever business their board oversees. Just the same, Michelle Malkin thinks we should ignore that and hate Mrs. Obama for it..and for anything that marks her as successful, upper class or otherwise extraordinary. [A U.S. president's wife is automatically 'upper class', even without a billion dollars. Sorry?]
Political ideology aside, what I reject is the suggestion in Malkin's column and past scribblings that the Obamas weren't already successful and extraordinary, before they moved into the White House -Malkin's subtextual cues that they don't belong there..and are stealing from us. I also reject that, while Mrs. Obama works, cares for her children, pays her taxes, bla'bla bla, Malkin suggests Mrs. Obama is just another of Reagan's mythical 'welfare queens', signalling to all other working Americans, whom the far right-wing of Malkin's party hates so much...
To stay in our places.
Read this piece of paranoid, elitist garbage anyway, just so you know I'm not making it up.
