Just in time for the 2012 Presidential Election campaign season, get ready for the Michelle Hussein Obama book tour. You’re paying for it. Yup, yet another example emerges to demonstrate how shameless the Obamas are in coming up with ways to waste your money to underwrite their campaign, so they can live it up in the White House another four years.
On April 10th, Mrs. Obama releases her new book, “American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools, and Communities.” Wow, someone’s full of herself. I haven’t seen a single fat kid suddenly work out and eat carrots because of the garden Empress Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Hussein Obama Idi Amin Dada pretends to grow. Have you? I haven’t seen a single inner city or suburban American kid give up Chicken McNuggets, Whoppers, and Lucky Charms because of “her” garden.
I say “her” in quotation marks because, do you really believe that Mrs. Obama gets a single wagging fingernail dirty with soil in real life? We know who is really growing this garden, and they are on your payroll. I’m thinking someone should write a book called, “The Help,” about a racist woman who employs servants to do her dirty work, then takes the credit. That would be the real “American Grown,” about White House employees forced to grow Michelle Obama’s garden, while she takes the credit and pretends it inspires anything beyond the ego smirking back at her in the mirror.
And you know what this is really about: yet another Mrs. Obama “I Have a Scheme” tactic to pretend she’s promoting a book, while she’s really riding the American people’s planes and using the Secret Service protection to promote her hubby and campaign for him. You really think she gives a crap about celery sticks and vegan pterodactyl egg protein shakes for kids in the inner city and far away from her precious daughters at the swanky Sidwell Friends School? Think again.
She couldn’t care less. This is a way to get free face time to promote her husband and get him re-elected. The rest is all BS and smoke and mirrors. Timing is everything. And there’s a very good reason she timed the release of this to mid-April of a Presidential election year.
In case you’re wondering, the book is priced at $30. Uh-huh. Mrs. Obama, sensitive to the plight of the little people, has priced this at just a fourth of some people’s heating bills for the winter . . . just to make it affordable. Why fill a third a tank of gas at the rising Obama-era gas prices, when you can buy Michelle Obama’s garden book?!
USA Today is working overtime pimping this silly book, first describing it as one of 30 books on what it deemed, ” A Winter’s Worth of Great Reading,” and then placing it seventh on its “10 Winter Titles Sure to Entice You” book list. Mrs. Obama’s vanity project is the seventh best new book out this year? Really? Who are you BS’ing, USA Today?
If Mrs. Obama had any integrity–a hilarious concept–she’d reimburse America for the money it’s going to pay to fly her around, provide her with security, feed her, etc. to promote this garden book. But she won’t. It’s an extension of the Barack Obama re-election bid, period.
And you are footing the bill. Hope you enjoy that garden book, America. You are paying a lot more than $30 for it, and you don’t even get a copy to go with your payment. You gotta pay $30 more for that.
Although, in a month, I predict you’ll probably be able to pick up a remaindered copy at the dollar store.
By the way, I’m looking forward to the Mr. Obama garden book, “Kenyan Grown.” In any event, “Let them eat cake” has been replaced with “let them eat organic veggies.”
