Democrats – and many members of the so-called “mainstream” media – are drooling over the possibility of Michelle Obama running for President.
They believe she is their best chance to defeat Donald Trump.
And Michelle Obama just addressed those rumors and dropped a bombshell that will leave you speechless.
The former First Lady spoke at a forum in Boston focused on empowering women.
Democrats have been hoping against all hope that she will pick up her husband’s mantle and run against Donald Trump in the ultimate partisan grudge match.
But once again, Michelle Obama crushed those dreams.
Obama declared she would not run for President.
NBC News reports:
“Former first lady Michelle Obama ruled out running for president when asked about the possibility at a forum devoted to empowering women in Boston on Thursday.
“You have to want the job. And you can’t just say, ‘you’re a woman, run,'” Obama said. “We just can’t find the women we like and ask them to do it because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics.”
The former first lady said she does not have the passion for politics like her husband.
“Just because I gave a good speech, I’m smart and intelligent doesn’t mean I should be the next president,” she said.”That’s been our problem. We’re very shortsighted about how we think about selecting the commander-in-chief.”
While many interpreted her remarks about Americans being shortsighted as an attack on Trump and his supporters, they easily apply to Barack Obama.
Obama’s main qualification for President was a speech that caused liberal media members to swoon at the 2004 Democrat convention.
Obama was a first-term Senator who had accomplished nothing in business or politics before he ran for office.
But his racial profile – being the first black President – is what sold Democrat primary voters.
And his two terms in office were a disaster.
Americans felt Obama’s globalist outlook rendered the nation’s economy stagnant while building up the fortune of foreign countries.
In foreign policy, Obama’s weakness led to the rise of ISIS and an agreement that placed Iran on the glide path to acquiring a nuclear missile.
Michelle Obama is similarly unqualified.
But unlike her husband, she is self-aware enough to notice.
