GOP Attacks Michelle Obama

Barack and Michelle Obama


Carrie Buddoff Brown at Politico.Com is reporting on how Democrats expect a concerted effort to cast Michelle Obama — and, by extension, Barack Obama — as an unpatriotic radical. She reports, "It’s less than a week into the general election campaign, but already Michelle Obama is a Republican target.

Former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger leveled the first blow, introducing Republican John McCain’s wife at a fundraiser this week as someone who is “proud of her country, not just once but always.” Obama wasn’t mentioned by name, but the audience got it.

The dig signaled the start of what Democrats expect will be a concerted effort to cast Michelle Obama — and, by extension, Barack Obama — as an unpatriotic radical. It also pointed out the urgency to define Michelle Obama to general election voters before the opposition goes too far in doing it for her, strategists said." More HERE
