The Untouchables

Michelle Obama

Sen. Barack Obama is apparently hopping mad at a YouTube video targeting his wife which was posted by Tennessee’s Rebublican Party last week:

Obama, his party’s presidential front-runner, and his wife, Michelle, were asked in an interview aired Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” about an online video last week by the state’s GOP taking her to task for a comment some considered unpatriotic.

“The GOP, should I be the nominee, can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record,” Obama said. “If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because that I find unacceptable, the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family.”

He called the strategy “low class.”

Stand-up kinda guy aren’t you Barack? So what about the video in question?

The video, posted on YouTube, centered on remarks Michelle Obama made while campaigning in Wisconsin last February, when she said: “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country.”

Michelle’s valiant knight angrily rose to her defense:

“Whoever is in charge of the Tennessee GOP needs to think long and hard about the kind of campaign they want to run, and I think that’s true for everybody, Democrat or Republican,” Obama said in the ABC interview, adding: “These folks should lay off my wife.”

Excuse me Senator Obama, but is this the same woman who one year ago reduced her professional responsibilities by 80% so that she could actively campaign for you? Is this the same woman who, according to the Wall Street Journal, recently “appeared at 33 events in eight straight days” and furthermore has earned the nickname of “the closer” because “she often pushes harder to seal the deal with voters” than you do? Sorry, Obama-boy, you can’t have it both ways. She’s fair game.

Same thing holds true for Chelsea Clinton, who gets paraded around to appear and speak at her mom’s campaign stops, yet acts taken-aback whenever a reporter dares to approach her, snobbily berating them and then walking off. She even snubbed a 9-year old kid, for God’s sake. So what happens when the press starts getting a little too close to Bill and Hill’s poor innocent little 28-year old daughter? Mommy pulls out her claws, of course.

You’re either in or you’re out, people. If you’re going to display yourself proudly on the front lines of a campaign battle, don’t be surprised when a few arrows come whistling your way.
