Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 11, 2018

Former first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday openly challenged calls from Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder for Democrats to eschew civility in favor of confrontational politics, saying she "absolutely" stands by her famous slogan, "when they go low, we go high." "Fear is not ... a proper motivator," Obama said during an interview on NBC's "Today." "Hope wins out, and if you think about how you want your kids to be raised, how you want them to think about life and their opportunities, do you want them afraid of their neighbors? Do you want them angry? Do you want them vengeful?" "Which motto do you want them to live by? And I have to think about that as a mother," she added.

Ask 101. Traditionally, he has lots of insults to hurl her way.

Pay attention, class, this is exactly why I started the Holder thread with this:

Stay Klassy, Eric...Michelle must be cringing right now.

We can hold and express opposing views within our ranks, ROC. That is just one way both parties are not the same.

You mean like chasing out of their "big tent" pro-life Democrats?

"Way to keep it classy, Mrs. Obama"

remember these

"Michelle Obama ‘Doesn't Look Or Act' Like A First Lady"

or this

She's President Obama's "baby mama." (Fox News)

and then there is this -------

She's "strikingly ungracious." (Jim Geraghty, writing for National Review)

"Read any George Will?"

Capitalism is a government program.

Thanks for proving my point.

That I read George Will?

What point does that make, in your mind?

It's a different point, but still germane: your reading comprehension still sucks.

Trumpublicans, who normally enjoy bashing Michelle Obama, will say some nice things about her, because it suits their agenda.

"It's a different point, but still germane: your reading comprehension still sucks."

Since you brought it up, do you comprehend what George Will is saying?

Assuming you can puzzle things out that far, do you agree that capitalism is a government program?

Not playing your game Snoofy, go away and start a new thread if that is what you want to talk about.

You think understanding George Will is a game?

Well, I can't blame you for not wanting to play a game you'll probably lose.
