President Obama (and All of Congress) SHOULD be Seen as “The Help”

There’s more racial politics coming from Michelle Obama. In an interview, “Michelle Obama said a woman asked her for help getting something off a shelf at Target, describing racial experiences she’s had.”

What was Michelle doing shopping in Target? It was a publicity stunt. The Clintons did stuff like this. You may recall the couple’s “impromptu” dance on the beach as it just so happened that a cameraman was hidden in the bushes to get the shot that made the liberal world go all weak in the knees.
