Was Question For Michelle Another Plant?

From ABC News:


Immigration Hits Home for Young Girl and First Lady Michelle Obama

Karen Travers

May 19, 2010

During First Lady Michelle Obama’s visit to an elementary school in Silver Spring, Md., Wednesday, a second grade female student brought up immigration reform in a very personal way.

The student shyly raised her hand and said, "My mom … she says that Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn’t have papers."

Mrs. Obama replied:"Yeah, well that’s something that we have to work on, right? To make sure that people can be here with the right kind of papers, right? That’s exactly right."

The girl then said quietly, "But my mom doesn’t have any …" and trailed off.

Mrs. Obama replied: "Well, we have to work on that. We have to fix that, and everybody’s got to work together in Congress to make sure that happens. That’s right."

The exchange came during a visit with Mexico’s First Lady Margarita Zavala to the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring, Md…

Would it be too cynical to suggest that this question was a plant? After all, look at the timing, with the wife of Mexico’s President at Mrs. Obama’s elbow.

No, we strongly suspect that this second-grader had been coached to ask the First Lady about Arizona. But ‘Arizona’ is quite a mouthful for such a young girl. Instead, she said ‘Obama’ — which sounds like ‘Arizona,’ sort of. In any case, ‘Obama’ is undoubtedly a word this child hears quite regularly.

And the real tip off is the way in which Michelle Obama answered the question. She didn’t correct the girl by saying in horror, “heavens no, my husband would never do anything like that!”

Instead, Mrs. Obama calmly answered the question as if it had been about those evil people in Arizona. Just as it had been originally planned.

    Of course it was a plant.

      And Michelle Obama has the IQ of a plant……..an eggplant……if she and the administration thinks the American people are too dense to see through this charade.

      Everything they do is a slap at mainstream America. They really do hate this country!

    “Would it be too cynical to suggest that this question was a plant? ”

    Would it be too cynical to suggest that every action that the sleazy couple makes has been scripted since they met?

    The only thing that surpises me about them is that they don’t have 2.2 children with 1 being a boy, and the .2 being a handicapped transgender abortion.

    The little girl also claimed to be a Vietnam War veteran who had been denied medical insurance.

    However, she subsequently clarified her remarks, explaining that she had inadvertently misspoken, and that she regretted that her remarks had been taken out of context and misconstrued by vile Tea Party racists who are driving America to the brink of civil war.

      She also referred all questions to her legal team and immediately filed for political asylum.

      All before noon recess.

      The Belle was seen rummaging through her purse to make sure she had her papers and Red Party Card.

    Entire racist Michelle interview was staged. At the end clip note circle of all minority children. Not one of the many white children at this school were allowed in Michelle’s private circle. Oriental Asian & African-American children, so it wasn’t the Mexican President visit. Michelle didn’t miss a beat answering.

    though the subject was suppose to be healthy cafeteria food.

    This school won the U.S. Dept of Agriculture Healthier U.S. Schools 2009 Award, focusing on healthier eating & exercise.

    The lucky children have a menu of 6 breakfasts to choose from. $1.30 for poor white folk…
    up to $5.07 breakfast if you qualify. Teachers appear to be eating better, but not exercising

    When the political winds are against you…trot out the children. Commie-Lib-Dems think it works every time.

    Why doesn’t FOX trot out the natural beauty that was parts of southern AZ that is trashed by the illegals sneaking in?

    YEP! 2nd graders are sure up on their current events these days! As if any of them would understand the term, ‘papers’ which has been common vocabulary of the democrats lately.

    Remember 2nd grade? The common concerns back then were
    *Coloring within the lines
    *Trying to tell time
    *Sneaking a stick of gum during class
    *Name calling by other students
    *Hoping they didn’t run out of chocolate milk at lunch time

    No, the mexican first lady happens to be there, the cameras are rolling, and a 2nd grader (of all people) just happens to ask a political question of national/world importance?

    Michelle should have said,“Well honey, we have to make sure everyone obeying the law, for our safety. So, if your mommey doesn’t have papers, she needs to get in the back of the line and pay for her passport, stamps, work Visa, and taxes like everyone else on this planet. And that is our little lesson today about fairness kids!”
