Will Michelle Obama Run for President in 2016?

Rumors are heating up that Michelle Obama will edge out Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president in the upcoming 2016 race for the White House. How’s that for scary, eh?

Rumors have been making the rounds that Barack expects to push his wife into the spotlight in order to finally destroy the Clinton machine and put himself 100% in charge of the American far left and its power base, the Democrat Party.

Right now, Barack is still in competition with Bill and Hillary. The Media still runs to the aging horndog that was once our president for his thoughts on the issues. This is galling to Barack who thinks the sun revolves around him in the political universe.

Note that President Obama has built an entire campaign edifice that has not turned its resources over to the Democrat Party.

Obama’s Organizing for Action (which used to be Obama for America) is still in full operation and is used solely to raise money for Obama and his personal causes as well as for pushing his own political message. This billion dollar organizing machine has not turned its gigantic email list over to the Democrat Party nor has it lent is vast online capabilities to the Democrat Party.

In fact, currently the Democrat Party is out of money, nearly broke as it is reported. But notice also that OFA is not out of money and has made no effort to help the DNC recoup its losses.

So, what is Obama to do with this giant campaign machine if he isn’t helping any Democrats with it? Many think he’ll use it to push his wife for 2016.

Then we can have the destruction of America continue along Barack’s ideological basis with eight years of a “historic” first black, female president, Michelle Obama–the way the media will sell it.

After that… can Barack himself run again?

One person poo-pooing the idea is Rush Limbaugh. He says he doesn’t think it’ll happen.

    I doubt this happens. Hillary is the agreed on Democratic Party insider choice. Appointing her Secretary Of State was the first step towards party healing between the Obama and Clinton wings after that bruising 2008 primary campaign. I’m not sure who the Republican Party insiders will choose, but they tend to reward long time party loyalty and will likely rally around a long time leading politician in the party such as a Robert Dole or John McCain as they have done in the past, while rank and file party members may flirt with more conservative or less proven politicians. Party insiders have a lot of pull in both parties, and seem to have more influence choosing the ultimate leader in both parties than many realize. – At this point Rep. Peter King might have the most party insider respect, although members of Congress haven’t been elected president on their own in recent history. Rep. Gerald Ford was appointed vice president, but lost election on his own. My best guess is that a governor is selected for support, which would likely be Chris Christie at this point, as governors rather than senators are far more likely to be elected president. Joe Biden won’t be the Democratic choice even if he wants it. His support is too shallow. Hillary will be the Democratic nominee. Chris Christie does have a slight chance to best her narrowly in a general election if enough Obama-fatigue hurts Democratic voter turnout. Otherwise, Hillary likely wins the election because many voters think the Clinton years were like a golden age compared to either Bush or Obama, and that’s a difficult problem for many Republican contenders to overcome, at least at this point in time. But, things are early, as 2016 is still a long time away.

      Hillary’s long past her sell-by date. Biden’s a senile joke. And I don’t really see any folks in the DNC with sufficient charisma to get the needed support.

      Reid? Pelosi? (God, can you imagine President Pelosi? Shudder…)

      They’d better have someone visibly competent in the wings, because the main ones on-stage just… aren’t.

      (I know, they could draft Scott Walker from Wisconsin!)

      • Commander_Chico

        Martin O’Malley from Maryland might run. I’m sure there will be some senators who run out of vanity, as usual.

        I’d like to see Jim Webb run.

      • tbenton62

        Stupid, Walker wants nothing to do with this liberal party that is destroying us from within.

  • Brucehenry

    No, the Constitution limits a president to two full terms.

    Where are these supposed rumors being circulated? First I’ve heard of ‘em. Of course I’m not a crazed wingnut.

    • Paul Hooson

      Democratic Party insiders likely privately agree that this administration is simply not working out as hoped for and want a clean break from the Obamas. First ladies tend to be more popular than their husbands, but that doesn’t mean they can lead a nation. Michelle is totally unproven as a political leader.This isn’t a South American “Peronist” system of government we have here, where some leader puts up their wife in their place. It isn’t even a George Wallace-styled Alabama system, where he put up his wife to avoid term limits and hold on to power.

      • Brucehenry

        I hear what you’re saying but really, the whole idea is so ridiculous that it doesn’t need some long analysis of why it’s wrong. The idea is stupid and these supposed “rumors” are something some genius like Warner made up out of whole cloth.

        The paranoid nutjobbiness shows through in the next to last sentence . Umm, no, read the 22nd Amendment for God’s sake and tell me what the first sentence is, Warner.

        • Paul Hooson

          I can’t fault Warner for looking for a story to write to further discussion here. He’s a good writer only looking for a story to write. – I have to search for stories to write over at Wizbang Pop. I can’t make every feature over there some topless feature, so I write about some inventor who made cars out of plywood during WWII or Robert Schuller coming down with cancer.

          • Brucehenry

            Whatever you say

          • Paul Hooson

            Warner does a lot of work here, so searching for something to write is better than not writing. I’m not convinced that he’s really sold on the premise of each of his features as much as it’s a job to write something. To find something interesting to throw out as a story and to further discussion.
            It’s an interesting fantasy premise here, which we both agree is highly unlikely. However, we both expressed our thoughts here. Warner did his job. He entertained me with his feature, and I expressed my opinions on this premise. I can’t fault his attempts to entertain me.

          • Commander_Chico

            Warner, how about writing more about NSA? Ha, I know, that’s a joke.

            You seem unhappy here.

            Do you need help fixing that?

          • Brucehenry

            Happy as a clam, thanks for asking.

          There is nothing stopping Michelle from running. I think the point was if Michelle runs and wins 2 times that we wont have a democracy anymore. My opinion is we will be lucky enough to survive the next 3 years.

        • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

          I really wish it WEREN’T true, Bruce. Yes, it’s wrong and it’s stupid… but when has that ever stopped someone who thought they’d get some good out of it?

          • Brucehenry

            The fact that there are people, some in Congress, who think it’s a good idea to repeal the 22nd Amendment doesn’t mean it’s true that “rumors are heating up” or are “making the rounds.”

            They’re not.

            Well, maybe in the wingnuttiest of wingnut circles, but nowhere near the mainstream.

            The google page you sent me has as one of its top stories the Dem Congressman Serrano and his introduction of a bill to repeal the amendment. The Daily Caller presents it as a ploy to keep Obama as president for life, but, buried in the story is the little factoid that he first introduced the bill in 1997, then reintroduced it FIVE TIMES while Bush was president. It didn’t get any support to speak of any of the times he tried it.

          • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

            And here’s hoping it keeps sliding off into a ditch.

            Want to help me grease the road? ;-)

    • Retired military

      Bruce he was being facicous. (Spelling). You have spoken quite a bit at times about others not understanding your sarcasm and wit. Et tu Brute?

      • Brucehenry

        Maybe you’re right.

        Maybe….

    • Sky__Captain

      Considering how often President StompyFeet ignores the Constitution (see his changes to the Affordable Care Act for details), why would this be an impediment to him?

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      Snope’s has something on that – mix of true and false, according to them.

      http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/termlimits.asp

      Rep. José E. Serrano put in a bill for a repeal of the 22nd Amendment.

      https://www.google.com/search?q=repeal+22nd+amendment&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

      Lot of links there – apparently, there’s a fair number who think it’d be just dandy to have a President for three or more terms, as long as it’s the RIGHT President.

      Me? Bad idea. VERY bad idea. 8 years of any politician in the top seat is enough, and I wouldn’t mind much if it were 1 term of 6 years. That would at least give us a respite from the Perpetual Campaign that starts right after the Inauguration.

    Barack has a handicap the other candidates don’t have: Barack Obama has a black wife. And I don’t think a black woman can be first lady of the United States. Yeah, I said it! A black woman can be president, no problem. First lady? Can’t do it. You know why? Because a black woman cannot play the background of a relationship. Just imagine telling your black wife that you’re president? ‘Honey, I did it! I won! I’m the president.’ ‘No, we the president!

    Hillary will be the nominee for the dems in 2016 even if she is in an iron lung. And it wont matter how big a pile of bodies she has to climb to get there.

    • Jwb10001

      Maybe Michelle can be her first lady too or is that unconstitutional?

      • Retired military

        It wont be by 2016 :)

  • Commander_Chico

    Will Michelle Obama Run for President in 2016?

    No.

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      Hope you’re right! She’d be a flippin’ disaster – worse than Obama.

      However, considering that Obama’s lack of anything resembling an actual record of accomplishments qualifying him for the job didn’t hinder his campaign much, I probably should just call you a racist now… because she’ll probably run and consider herself entitled to the job because she wants it.
