Get Ready for the Michelle Obama Campaign “Book Tour” – You’re Paying

By Debbie Schlussel

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.”

Now, Debbie, for shame:

Having alien life forms like Wookies puttering around in the garden gives them little time to get on their hind legs and scream in rage.

What a boatload!!!

The pre=totalitarian aspects of this sort of campaign should not be overlooked.

A mediocre woman, with no real accomplishments ‘writes’ a silly little book and it is glorified nonstop by the media and her supporters, suspending critical judgment completely.

In 1930s Russia, the sycophantic press there, in Europe, and to some extent in this country, did the same thing with Stalin. Of course they went farther, and those who disagreed were sometimes killed. Things haven’t gone that far here, but the current environment is similar to the environments and societies that were harbingers of Stalinism. A good comparison might be the artists, writers and other travelers to Russia in the 1930s, such as Shaw, Gide (for a while), Dos Passos (for a time), etc., who glorified and distorted the alleged accomplishments of the New Soviet Society.

With proportions guarded, this is the same thing.

Dr Dale on January 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm

As you know, I live here in the DC area, and the First Transexual loves to go out to lunch. Does she eat nice leafy salads? No, she eats tacos, big double cheese burgers, etc.

Look at her ass and hips. Does it look like she eats healthy??

Did she even have a garden at her mafia paid for home in Chicago? I bet not.

She also is not the first to suggest vegetable garden at the White House. Many presidents had sheep, goats, vegetable gardens, chickens, etc.

I am sick of the Obamas telling the rest of us how to live, and how to make do with less, while they live better than royalty.

Unfortunately, Obama and his transexual “wife” will probably occupy the White House for another 4+ years, aided in part by Gingrich’s condemnations of Romney’s wealth.

Jonathan E. Grant on January 17, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Jon, let’s not forget her appearance on Paula Deen’s show:

    “Deen was quoted by the Washington Examiner as having said Mrs. Obama ‘probably ate more than any other guest I ever had on the show! She kept eating even during commercials. Know what [the Obamas’] favorite foods are? Hot wings.'”

Great post Debbie except that we should be saying Mrs. Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. (Barack Obama).
The real solutions that we need from the Commander in Chief are: Stopping Black on White Violence.
Keeping brokerage house out of the United States Treasury.
Ending Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
End the threat of Islam to America.
To be continued.

what’s the deal with her scare-do? looks like she grabbed a high-voltage wire…

KIRCHE on January 17, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Sounds like a must buy book! For some reason I cannot grow caviar and lobsters over here on the other side of the bridge in Arlington! Must be the soil.

And as for her her physical proportions, one should not be unkind – Some of just just hide our not so light under a bushel basket.

Cathy on January 17, 2012 at 3:16 pm

Before I read this delicious post (I love any column that calls Michelle Antoinette on her phony act!!!) and comment does anyone know if indeed MLRHOIAD lost her law license over her Chicago University Hospital patient dumping scheme?

Some say she gave it up on her own but I highly doubt it. Hope someone here knows the truth….

Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I wonder how they managed to put a little bit of a smile on that constantly scowling, angry face that Ms. Hussein Obama usually has on her face.

You’ve gotta give her a break about the garden thing, though. All she wants is to make everybodys kids healthy with her examples of good nutrition. I’ve read and heard that Moochelle hasn’t met a french fry that she could say no to.

Jarhead on January 17, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Publication of “Michelle Obama’s” Home Grown is scheduled for publication in April 2012. I am absolutely certain that “Michele Obama” wrote this book all by herself and no ghostwriters were involved whatsoever. Although virtually every other book published by “busy” (non-writer) professionals has a ghostwriter authorship credit or an “as told to” credit, Michelle Obama must have been very busy writing and editing her book in between her extensive shopping sprees and vacations because she’s the kind of woman who does extensive research in her subject and has extensive hands-on gardening experience that is at least as strong as her husband’s extensive business experience.

Furthermore, I am shocked at the cynicism of everyone here regarding the “timing” of the book’s publication. The fact that this book is coming out just before her husband’s election campaign moves into full swing is a sheer coincidence. Michelle OBama happens to very passionate about “community and school gardens”, emphasizing the collective nature of 21st century American farm labor. When it comes to the Obamas, passion for human endeavors comes before politics.

I would not be shocked, however, to see some cynics accusing the Obama administration of using their connections and money to create “advance order” buzz on Amazon as a way to artificially increase sales, so that the book will not turn out to be a flop.

I am sure that this book is marvelously written as only Michelle Obama can do, and I look forward to reading her magnificent prose upon the book’s release. Her book will undoubtedly earn a secure and treasured place on my bookshelf next to other great works of literature, such as Dreams from My Father, The Audacity of Hope, and It Takes A Village.

    RA, I’m waiting for the leather-bound gold gilded editions to prop up next to my copies of Plato, Dante, Shakespeare, Poe, etc.

    theShadow on January 17, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Debbie I wouldn’t line my bird cage with whatever she fake did and ghostwrote. And nobody except possibly the reviewers will ever read it. I’d read her and B.O.’s college transcripts for a laugh, though. As they and the NY Times endlessly brag about going to Harvard Law School they shouldn’t mind being outed as The First Affirmative Action Couple.

A1 on January 17, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Ok, I laugh like hell when anyone notices the true resemblance of FLOTUS and Chewbacca. It annoys me to no end that this ugly woman is described as beautiful. When it’s done to her and Lady Junk-Junk it makes me crazy!!!

Dr. Dale, spot on regarding Newspeak and your avatar takes on a different meaning now than before the mess of Libya. Very creepy and eye-opening.

I am constantly thunderstruck by the amount of people who buy into the FAKE images of the Obamas in contrast to peeps like me who see them for the liars and charlatans that they are.

It does not seem to stop. After 3 years it’s laughable that ANYONE can still see them as their construct. It bothers me greatly. IF these two crypto Marxists were white and Republican more people would see the TRUTH rather than the faux construct. The faux construct would not survive 3 days!

And c’mon. How many people actually think Michelle Antoinette is actually more DOMESTIC and traditional than Cankles Clinton? There is NO WAY I believe that she is not 100% involved in policy. They just don’t wanna jinx it like the Clintons did and they need a faux buffer for those put off by Obama’s socialism.

And the Obamas have years and years of racism (on their part) behind them and they are never called on it and people act as if they are NOT racist.

This book is yet just another example of the false personae this very angry Marxist has adopted to stay palatable with the American people. I am sick of it being seen as truth when it is NOT.

And that is why all those Americans laughed in her face at NASCAR.

Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Chewbacca??? Really? I thought she closely resembled Aughra from The Dark Crystal myself.

    Pats on January 17, 2012 at 7:17 pm

      It’s all in the eyes and mouth, Pats.

      I did not see that movie. I am sure I would agree if I did thou’.

      Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 8:32 pm


    Look at the picture of yourself on this website, then look at one of Michelle Obama. Then ask any neutral observer which of the two they think is uglier (people who think all black people are ugly do not count as neutral).

    d williams on February 23, 2012 at 2:29 pm

The claim that her gardening inspires so many is almost gag inducing. Sorry Michelle, people have been hobby gardening for generations without a paid staff to do it for them. I am certain that the Obamas were paid a nice advance for this swill. If the proceeds are not going to charity, this book becomes nothing more than a money making scam. Who would even look at such a book if it were not allegedly written by the First Lady? Even so, I would agree with Debbie that this tome will be relegated to the dollar bin shortly after the buzz disappears.

Worry01 on January 17, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Also, I agree with CS on the Frank Marshall Davis angle (convincing but not 100% proven but I am just about convinced…and the book on this was virtually ignored so there you go…)

And there is so much in their past that they DON’T disclose but it’s amazing how many people willfully overlook it.

California Screaming has posted in the past a VERY interesting link about Obama’s lack of girlfriends other than MLRHOIAD and a very interesting thisclose relationship with a Pakistani college roommate.

Maybe that is why Michelle Antoinette puts her stupid husband down and scoffs constantly…

Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 4:51 pm

You are a disgusting person Debbie. No more will i give you or your parrot heads the benefit of the doubt about being racist, when you yourself use every chance you get to defame and insult the first lady with trash and “oh so funny” nick names. Your jealousy and racism is not longer thinly veiled, it’s bright and shining for all to see.
You are a racist! I dont care about all the excuses your neo con followers will spew, you are a racist.
And most of the posters on here as well are RACIST.
Oh, and Debbie, you are waaaaaaaaay more in need of a diet than Michelle Obama. And some sun. If you are ever brave enough to come out into the real world.

Right is ALWAYS wrong on January 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Oh STFU Left is ALWAYS wrong and get off you’re damn soap-box you prick, you’re the one who’s disgusting and vile you buffoon, and you’re also the one who’s the real racist here you dildo. FYI Left is ALWAYS wrong, I happen to be african-american myself and a supporter and fan of Debbie Schlussel’s work, etc., care to explain that if you think in you’re pervert mind that DS and us here are racist?

    Jackass, alot of people comment here and read this website no matter what race, religion, etc. they happen to be. And while where at it, can you explain to me why for 20 years Mr. & Ms. Obama sat in a racist, hateful and anti-semitic church listening to Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s vile and disgusting rhetoric! You can’t expalin that to me you doofus because you know I am right and telling it like is. So please go back to either LoonWatch, Mondoweiss, Think Progress, Daily Kos, The Hill, Democrat Underground, etc. and ride the short bus with you’re ilk of emotionally challanged far-left loons and spare me and all of us here with your BS of, “yadda yadda you’re a racist yadda yadda”! I’ve found out that those who do “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” and call people racist for NO reason happen to be the racist themselves, and that’s you Left is ALWAYS wrong, you’re the one who’s the racist asshole, now get lost for good!

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on January 17, 2012 at 6:48 pm

@RAW………..yeah right.

Skunkette…I beg to differ on Lady Junk-Junk. She’s a one-bagger fer sure.
MLRHOIAD maybe 3 or 4 bagger in a pinch. Kinda looks like Hemorrhoid no?

BilboBaggins on January 17, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    Bilbo, I am gonna assume that you have seen the well crafted pictures of Lady Junk-Junk because some of them I have seen make her a quadruple bagger. Lighting, strategic makeup and an artsy eye go a long way with that ugly hag.

    Strangely enough, both look like transexuals. With apologies to transexuals because almost all I have known and seen look so much more pretty than those two witches. Even the matronly ones!

    Funny how “LEFT Is Always Wrong” thinks everyone here is racist but 100% ignores the bona fide racism of Barack and Michelle.

    I doubt anyone of DS’ regulars would sit 20 minutes (let alone 20 years) in a racist church. The Obamas did. No Liberal lie can change THAT!

    Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Skunky, not sure where the link was supposed to go but it ended up on the DM home page. I wonder if the pulled your link?

Check out Lady Junk Junk, not a raving beauty but a “hag”? Don’t think so.


BilboBaggins on January 17, 2012 at 7:11 pm


Found the article…yes indeed. The loving involved family on an outing to build more Potemkin schools.
What a joke! BTW have you seen anything regarding the “real” reason the Wookie “gave up” her law license?

BilboBaggins on January 17, 2012 at 7:27 pm

The question of Michelle’s law license has been floating around for the past four years. Before the net was being systematically scrubbed of all potential damaging evidence against the chosen pair I researched the Illinois state records concerning her law license. She was brought up on charges for insurance fraud and she was given the choice as to either volunteer to relinquish her law license or face those charges in court and suffer the consequences. (sort of like being fired or asked to resign) She volunteered to relinquish her license. If she were to try to activate her license again in the future she would first have to answer the complaint brought against her in court, which she will never do. When these people first came on the scene due to Oprah, I was intrigued as to whom the “new” charlatans in town were. The information on the Illinois data base had number codes for each type of inactive licenses. The code for Michelle’s had to do with criminal activity for becoming inactive. That database has sense been altered, as were others that concern those two.

wolf2012 on January 17, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Wolf, thank you for sharing. Interesting info!

    So much has been scubbed on these two fiends and yet you still have Yobos like “LEFT Is Always Wrong” ignoring it and calling the critics what the obscene Obamas are.

    With the Obamas, things get scrubbed or altered or hidden and destroyed.

    Conn. social security number, fraud birth certificates and selective service forgeries (THAT was proven HERE!!), college transcripts, the 93 dinner in honour of Rashid Khalidi, any living girlfriend of Hussein Obama.

    Jim Quinn has also mentioned legal documents being scrubbed to bolster an unlawful tactic by Obama and his Administration. Sorry, I am drawing a blank on that right now…

    Bilbo, yes, you’re right. Junk-Junk is a one bagger in your link.

    Sorry about that bum link. Glad you found the story. Is she a typical 13 year old, or a brat or tired of her lying parents? Guess we’ll never know…

    Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 8:41 pm

The other interesting piece I found amusing was the “crazy” Uncle who liberated Auschwitz, then it became the “crazy” uncle who liberated some other death camp when it was found out that the Russian Red army liberated Auschwitz. I checked the military database on crazy uncle Thomas Payne in Kansas or where ever they were from and the only Payne listed at the time was in the Navy, thus proving that his uncle wouldn’t have been anywhere near any camps to speak of during WWII. After about three weeks when that was the news story, low and behold the records suddenly changed and a new T. Payne was added to the registry making him a Army/Marine soldier to support the lie.

wolf2012 on January 17, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    You’re absolutely correct Wolf! That one always slips my mind but I am putting it up on the top of the list! Love your posts today

    Liberals show how disingenuous they are when they push aside facts on their “heroes” that would have them foaming at the mouth if done by Conservatives. I learned that well during “Billy Jeff’s” impeachment and 8 years of scandal. “Quinn & Rose” touched a bit on the Vince Foster forgotten scandal a few weeks ago and it got me interested in it all over again! (They were talking about “Whistleblowers”.)

    Also on the Hussein Obamas. Liberals conveniently forget how Obama got in the Illinois senate and the nasty tricks done to Alice Palmer and Republican Ryan (married to that Star Trek actress lady).

    And the woman who worked so hard to help Obama “write” (Bill Ayers (thanks Dustbag!) DOMF had Obama turn on her arse when he was able to keep TWO advances for the same book. She will not spill the beans on his betrayal (of her) though.

    And I have posted about the false meme that Obama’s parents were ever married (they were NOT) and if even Obama Senior is indeed his dad. I think he wasn’t.

    Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 9:30 pm

For all we know this book could have been ghost written by Bill Ayers, but with the exception that this time he learned to draw up and sign a royalties contract.

Dustbag [Genesis 2:7] on January 17, 2012 at 9:03 pm

>>For all we know this book could have been ghost written by Bill Ayers, but with the exception that this time he learned to draw up and sign a royalties contract.<<

Are there any acknowledgments at all?

As some of you may know, I'm a word sleuth. Please email me some text from the book and I'll try to find the "ghost" author.

Has anyone read Michelle's Ph.D. thesis? I've been told, to put it generously, that she's "not a writer."

The truth should matter. If someone else wrote this book, that person's name should be somewhere on it.

Barry Popik on January 17, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Oops. Senior thesis, not Ph.D. thesis.

    Barry Popik on January 17, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Barry, the book has already been forensically proven to be ghostwritten. Jack Cashill investigated it for years and his book on it is called “Deconstructing Obama”.

    Skunky on January 17, 2012 at 10:24 pm

      I was talking about this new one. I’ve written to Jack Cashill and perhaps he’ll look at Michelle’s new book as he looked at Barack’s books.

      My guess is that Michelle Obama hired an established cookbook author. However, those books (Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray) might have their owns ghost writers!

      Barry Popik on January 17, 2012 at 11:07 pm

I have read her Senior Thesis, and all I can say is if it were written by a white person, they never would have graduated. It wasn’t even a “Thesis” in the concept of what a thesis should be. There was no question to be answered, or researched, no statement or defining structure of what she was attempting to negotiate with the 20 odd pages that it took up. She interviewed former black students and it was a “where are they now” topic. Any university professor (make that high school teacher)would have thrown it in the garbage and failed her. The topic wasn’t a Thesis, and yes it was “written” by someone who should never have been allowed to pass the class. It was atrocious, which is why the thing was never posted or made available on the schools website. With all the information regarding this fraud Ms. Robinson, I’m really curious now to know IF she even passed the bar to begin with???

wolf2012 on January 17, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Also interesting of note, her grades and SAT scores in high school were also sub-standard and far from being execptable to any ivy league school. I read somewhere years ago, that her guidence councelor informed her that a state university was the best and probably only option for her, and Ms. Robinson only applied to Stanford(?) because an ivy league institution would take her at the time because of affirmative action, free of charge to her as well. While at school for four years, she had to have tutors in every single subject for her entire stay there. While she was employed at the law firm as an associate she never handled a case or did any law related work for the firm, until she got caught with the insurance fraud case(s) she was handling. That information came from an associate who used to work at the firm at the same time she did. The only thing about her that seems to follow suit is she never actually did any work for anyone, she was always just there for her connections and influence. Being Chicago and the influences that run that state, she’s more diabolical and sinister than even Barry is.

wolf2012 on January 17, 2012 at 11:16 pm

I hope we get rid of these people in the next election,my stress levels will go back to normal,I dislike these unsavory characters.

Juan on January 18, 2012 at 12:47 am

I have a couple of takes on Miss Thang Michelle Obama. I think it is a true scandal if she is using taxpayers resources to make a personal gain from her book. And we all know she won’t get her hands dirty in the soil for a garden. Can’t wait years from now when a staffer publishes their book on the years working with her and expose this so called garden.

My second take is that her message of promoting healthy eating in inner cities and schools should be cheered. Have you gone to a Walmart or grocery store and see what they put in their baskets? I am tired of paying for entitled welfare mothers to get Cheetos, Sugar Smacks, and Cokes. If they are taking our taxpayer money then give we should require them to only be able to buy stuff that has nutritious value. I would love to be in grocery line and see the EBT people get purchases denied because they have no nutritious value. Same with school lunches. Mrs. Thang is trying to force kids to eat vegetables in their free school lunches. The hell with these brats who get free meals and complain. Don’t like it bring your own lunch and quit demanding our taxpayer dollars so you can get heart disease and diabetes down the road. Which we will have to pay for because everyone in the hood has Medicaid. So shove some spinach, green beans and carrots down these brats mouths. You go girl.

CaliforniaScreaming on January 18, 2012 at 8:09 am

Michelle Obama went to Princeton as an undergrad. Both she and Barrack Obama are living proof that the Ivy standards academic ain’t what they used to be -at least not for them.

Linky Drake on January 18, 2012 at 8:20 am

Thanks Linky, I couldn’t remember if it was Princeton or Stanford and quite frankly didn’t care enough anymore to bother to look it up. I spent an entire year of my life that I will never get back researching these two frauds and I try not to give them anymore of my time if I can avoid it.

wolf2012 on January 18, 2012 at 9:48 am

@Little Al I agree with you 100%

Cesia on January 18, 2012 at 11:43 am

Wolf, thanks for all your informative posts on Michelle Antoinette. I am glad you had to slog through the checkered past of these two charlatans because your info is fascinating.

Barry, I hope you do get to look into this stupid garden book.

Skunky on January 18, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Did Michelle Obama learn gardening while working as an employee, with a six-digit annual income, of the University of Chicago?

Rodrigo Veleda on January 18, 2012 at 5:06 pm
