World Net Daily: Michelle Obama Will Run For President

Oddly, I’m totally OK with this.

From World Net Daily founder Joseph Farah:

Is she or isn’t she? That’s the question about Michelle Obama’s intentions regarding a possible run for president in 2020. While she has consistently denied any interest in running, how plausible does that really sound? If the Democratic Party needed her and pleaded with her to run, does anyone really doubt she would?

She outpolls all other Democrats: According to a Zogby poll last month, she leads the pack of potential Democratic candidates, despite her insistence that she would “never run.” The only others even close are Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – two very old white men. That’s simply not going to work for the Democratic Party. In other words, Democratic primary voters want Michelle. She’s their dream candidate for 2020. She excites the Democratic Party base.

She wouldn’t be the first to deny her real intention:TWICE Hillary Clinton ruled out running for president and then did exactly that – in 2008 and again in 2012. It was the smart thing to do then, and it’s the smart thing to do now.

There’s simply no one else:Look at the potential candidate for the Democrats! Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – are you kidding? It’s almost a joke. You don’t think Barack and Michelle Obama realize that? Hillary Clinton doesn’t even register on the polls.

    While I doubt she’ll run, we could do a lot worse.

    • billbear1961

      I think, from what I’ve heard about her, that she matches her husband’s intellect, and perhaps SHE would be less reluctant to take off her gloves and FIGHT.

  • billbear1961

    I started to cry my eyes out when I thought she was really going to run, to sacrifice herself to try to save a country that, frankly, doesn’t deserve her and that she owes NOTHING, especially after all the ABUSE she and her family put up with for EIGHT YEARS.

    Then, I realized that this was just speculation from FASCIST MONSTERS.

    • Tor

      The abuse then was nothing….. Imagine what they would try to do to her as President!

      • billbear1961

        I wouldn’t do it in her place, fight to save a country that will fight for NOTHING.

  • I don’t see it. Michelle seemed completely delighted to leave the White House and was fed up with being in the public spotlight. Also, any Democratic Party candidate who is not Bernie Sanders and runs in 2020 is going to be vilified, attacked, and abused by his supporters who feel that Bernie’s selection by the party is due to him as the progressive socialist Messiah was was stabbed in the back by the DNC. They are lighting candles for his stigmata to appear as we speak.

    • pch1013

      The odd thing about St. Bernard’s acolytes is that they are usually reluctant to criticize President Obama in the same terms that they attack Hillary – even though their positions and policies are virtually identical. A Hillary presidency would basically have been Obama’s third term.

      • Lazycrockett

        A Hillary presidency would have been just like a Bernie one, since they agree on 99% of the same issues. Though Hillary would have gotten some things done, while Bernie would just preach on high and not deliver on any of his bullshit promises.

        • pch1013

          Well, in reality, neither H nor B would have been able to get much done with a hard-line GOP Congress in place.

          • penpal

            They can’t. They won’t. Any chance to lionize the electoral college loser to Trump is also an opportunity to demonize the man who could have beaten him. They’d run her again if they could, and she’d get her ass handed to her again. They never learn.

          • Randy Ellicott

            I think it would be slightly better as he seems to be able to control what he says far better than trump, however his inability to run a campaign that effectively communicated to his staffers how a campaign worked and what they needed to do was very telling. Most of the “issues” and “conspiracies” his followers are still screaming about are the result of his failure to effectively communicate and educate his staff how to do their job.

        • justmeeeee

          But where is she now? GONE!

        • kevway

          “The actor and activist Susan Sarandon told the Guardian that the US ‘would be at war’ if Hillary Clinton was president. ”

      • justmeeeee

        Hillary’s policies are way more in line with someone like Mitt Romney than with Obama. She’s a murdering war-monger.

        • Randy Ellicott

          So you agree that Bernie’s policies were way more in line with Romney than Obama…. They had the same freaking policies… one just had a penis.

          • justmeeeee

            blow me, bitch

          • Randy Ellicott

            And that my friends is an example of what Bernie has created…

          • justmeeeee

            Tell all your fellow Hill-bots: bitter ain’t pretty!

          • Randy Ellicott

            See all the people on here are using facts to explain the problem with Bernie, you on the other hand are the biter little child whining… You are exactly the problem that bernie created ignorant entitled people who don’t actually look at reality and see how it works…

    • Reality.Bites

      Reconcile these statements:

      There’s a fair chance he’ll die before the 2020 campaign gets going.

      There’s no chance I’ll be mourning him before the 2020 campaign gets going.

      • Lazycrockett

        I don’t wish him dead, just a small stroke.

        • Lazycrockett

          Plus Bernie would be more happy being canonized than elected.

        • Reality.Bites

          I don’t care what ends his career as long as it’s definitely and permanently over.

    • Blake J Butler

    • I also found these Bernie devotional candles on Etsy. They are $9.99 each. They seem more Greek Orthodox.

      • pch1013

        I wonder how he feels about being portrayed in this sort of quasi-Christian way.

        • I am sure he finds it funny if he knows about it.

      • justmeeeee

        This is the definition of obsession, is it not? MOVE ON, HILL-BOTS!

    • TK

      Bernie supporters (the ones that aren’t Russian bots) TOTALLY have it all thought out and will be there for him no matter what.

      • They have every right to be. I do worry about 2020 getting out of hand though, especially with outside goading and interference. (Russians, wikileaks, etc). My guess is that non-Bernie progressive people are going to coalesce around another candidate, perhaps a female, and perhaps Biden will be there — it is not going to be a cakewalk for him. There is also substantial anger at Bernie among some in the party that is not going to go away.

    • justmeeeee

      Time for the Hill-bots to leave the Bernie bashing behind, don’t you think? Jeezy peezy!

    • jerry

      And I still don’t see Bernie winning a Democratic primary…he’s still not a Democrat, and would be totally not electable in a general. It’s the GOP’s dream opposition.

  • AJA

    She’d win, too. Everyone loves her, even the people that hated Barack. Intelligent, poised, beautiful, and completely scandal-free.

    THAT is why WND is posting this. They’re afraid of her.

    And they should be.

    • pch1013

      No, not *everyone* loves her – about a third of the country thinks she resembles a gorilla.

      • matrem

        A third of the country thinks all black people look like gorilla. Because they’re racist trash.

  • Gustav2

    I know, let’s have Mr Farah write a complete nonsense article that will give him a chance to slam Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren,

    Michelle Obama will not ever run.

  • Todd20036

    I would be ok with this. And if anyone said she was too inexperienced, SHE’S MORE EXPERIENCED THAN TRUMP

    Shout that from the rooftops.

    But more seriously, it’s WND. Not exactly a news source.

  • She needs to not run – no more neoliberal moderates – we need real change.

    • billbear1961

      Oh, Jesus Christ, she’s probably not even going to run, and you’re already bitching about her.

      • We don’t need another person in the WH who is going to fill it up with Wall Street bankers and expand our wars, drone strikes and private civilian surveillance.

      • Or you can continue down the centrist path that has been so very fruitful and such a winning strategy. /s

        • clay

          No, your problem is not strategy or political vision. Your problem is you have no political process.

          • A number of socialists won this past election, hoping the momentum continues. We’re up against a lot when centrists are tied to big money and big industry who now also get superdelegate votes.

          • clay

            How many Socialists won Democratic primaries?

          • There is more than just the executive branch to worry about – again like the 1100 seats the Dems lost in 9 years. Some of those are starting to be filled by socialists.

          • pch1013

            And how many Berniecrats won local and state elections earlier this month?

        • Gretchen

          It’s odd to me that we can have many of the same goals and basically believe in the same strategies for accomplishing those goals and yet your ilk are the “only real Democrats”. I don’t presume your age, but I have been a Democrat for 37 years. I have voted for a Democrat in every race in every major and most minor elections sine I was 18. That’s 24 years for the record. I am a Yellow Dog Democrat through and through. My problem here is that I’m not sure YOU and your fellow Berners are Democrats. I think the folks who follow Bernie are Independents possibly Democratic Socialists even who want to use the party I have been a part of building most of my life to meet their own objectives. This isn’t about control of a split party. It’s about an outside group staging a hostile takeover of an already established and well-connected political entity. The Democrats are not Bernie’s Party to change. This is not a coup d’etat. You are outsiders making demands on a group that doesn’t belong to you and to which you do not BELONG. If you want to run an uber progressive and have purity tests and employ your “winning” strategy, be my guest, but do it as the Independent that you are. You don’t get to crash our Party just because we have a nicer headquarters and better budget.

          • I’m in my mid 40s and I was raised a Democrat and I have voted Democrat a lot – but the party has changed and has lost its way. I don’t understand blind party loyalty – I never have – I believe that when something isn’t working you fix it. Just because the Democrats are Democrats doesn’t mean they deserve my vote – they’re public officials they have to earn it and work for it. The left wing of the party is asking for the Dems to be less neoliberal – that is less tied to big business and Wall Street and more for the common man which is why $15 min wage and Universal Health Care are so central to their platform. So the way I see it is we’re not outsiders we’re people who are telling the party that it’s lost its way and it needs to get back on track. This is not a religion or an ethnicity that you cannot simply erase from your upbringing – it’s a political party and political parties come and go and change all the time. Lincoln was a Republican – he certainly wouldn’t be today. Also, 50% of the country does not belong to a party so if Democratic loyalty is so special to Democrats fine – but don’t expect people to vote for you just because you’re the lesser of two evils – many people will just opt out. And this insular attitude like he/she’s not a “REAL” Democrat is just ways of distancing themselves from potential voters. They should be trying to court people not push them away. One way to do that is to adopt a more progressive platform and stop getting by on “at least we’re not them.”

          • Gretchen

            There are many things on which we can agree. In principle we have the same objectives. I too believe universal healthcare, better access to higher education, and an increased minimum wage are essential planks of the party platform. I have said for years that running Republican lite candidates is killing us. I even voted Green one time for Governor because the TNDP allowed Charlie Brown to happen. I suspect I would have even voted for the Republican if I was given no other choice.

            The part where we diverge is method. Your folks are willing to burn the tent down over issues that most of us see as part of the process. I wouldn’t say I love Wall Street or Big Business as part of the system, but current campaign finance law makes them necessary. Should we try to change that? Sure, but cutting off the nation’s nose to spite it’s face is just not sensible.

            In terms of party loyalty, yes, I think it’s crucial to be involved enough in the process that you CAN support every single Democrat on the ticket. (Charlie Brown was an aberration that my local party was instrumental in outing as a crazy person.) I also think that for people who have no interest in politics and no intention of researching issues and candidates, it’s by far a better choice to identify the party who shares your core beliefs and trust them to field acceptable candidates that you can support out of party loyalty.

            The concept of NOT supporting the Democratic candidate in a general election is patently destructive to our party and our nation. I just have one question. Did protest votes against Clinton help the county or get the party any closer to it’s goals? Personally, I think this strategy of purity testing candidates is far more destructive than party loyalty. This EXACTLY how Republicans vote and how they won all those seats. They vote as a block no matter how bad the candidate is. (Roy Moore?) We will never win again if we wage war internally.

            I don’t know if the party is broken now or not. Two years ago I would have said we were in a slump but certainly not broken. We were too confident that we would forever hold the executive branch, and we had bad messaging and outreach about the positive things Democrats were accomplishing during the economic recovery. Now, I think we are losing because too many people fail to recognize that politics is a team sport where we must support the captain even if we don’t always like the calls he or she makes.

          • It’s hard to support the captain when they keep losing and refuse to change the way they play the game. The Democrats will keep losing if they refuse to change. Sure they’ll make a little “comeback” in 2018 when the pendulum swings again but in the long run they’ll be screwed.

            I don’t know that most of them care that much really. Theyr’e making money by voting for lobbyist interests as we no longer have a functioning democracy but two parties that are essentially the same thing. Sure one is slightly better on social issues but only when its politically expedient and they’re pressured by society to absolutely conform and throw us a bone. But most of what they bicker about is marginal differences in tax rates – they’re even on the same side on foreign affairs. They just create scandals when something goes wrong to try and pin it on the other team but essentially they’re both pro-war and pro-intervention. So you can convince yourself that you’re on the good team but tell that to the 7 countries Obama invaded or escalated warfare in. Libya now has a slave trade thanks to Secretary Clinton’s policies there – which would have been the same had a Republican been in charge by the way. But whatever helps you sleep at night I guess.

          • Gretchen

            There are a host of things that keep me up at night including an ancient Rottweiler who needs to pee at least twice between 11 pm and 6 am, but my morals, political beliefs, and voting record are not among them. I did everything in my power and pocketbook to see a person who shares my priorities win the US Presidency. Did you?

          • What priorities are those? To cut off aid to Yemen so we can get cheaper oil and they can starve? (Obama started that not Trump btw). So if you share priorities with those people and can still sleep at night then well good for you I guess.

          • Gretchen

            You and I are not going to change one another’s minds, so let’s just call a ceasefire for now. It’s okay to disagree. Let’s just try not to throw the baby out with the bathwater because there’s poop in the tub.

If he does not withdraw she holds her postion and sharply repeats what she said, loudly and clearly, “I SAID BACK OFF NOW! YOU ARE IN MY SPACE ” and leave it at that and refuse to speak. That is what Hillary should have done.

          Can’t happen. The 12th Amendment prohibits the President and Vice President to be resident of the same state. That’s why Darth Cheney had to “become resident of Wyoming” when W. chose him as his VP nominee.

          • iambu

            Ah!! That makes sense though. Still, a voter can dream…

    • Lindoro Almaviva

      Michele Obama/ Barack Obama
      Michele Obama / Maxine Waters
      Michele Obama / Elisabeth Warren
      Michele Obama / Bernie Sanders
      Michele Obama / Tammy Duckworth {last edit}

      I would love either one of those

      • Kruhn

        Michelle and Barack can’t run together except if they’re divorced or separated and he moves to Hawaii or another state. See above.

  • FAEN

    Yes please!!

  • Secure

    “The only others even close are Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – two very old white men. That’s simply not going to work for the Democratic Party.”

    The Democrats had an “old white guy” as Vice President for eight years. We look for qualified candidates, not posers like Palin.

    • pch1013

      Biden is only four years older than Trump – I suppose that makes DT a “very old white man” too.

      • Stubenville

        Nope. Cheetolini is a dotard.

    • Treant

      One, I object to saying either are close. Biden is too old, too staid, and probably not going to bother. Bernie is too old, has burned too many bridges, and is probably going to bother, stay in longer than he should, but do far worse than last time.

      The ultimate 2020 contenders are mostly people who haven’t made a lot of noise as of yet, and the bench is pretty deep and not restricted just to very old guys, white or not.

  • TheManicMechanic

    Sounds awesome to me!

  • ConvivialVisits

    Wow, yes, “there’s simply no one else.” I’m certain that Joseph Farah has really searched high and low for all potential candidates the Democratic party should consider.

    • David Walker

      His publication is the epitome of well-sourced investigative journalism. (/s, if necessary)

  • Lindoro Almaviva

    From their mouth to the Goddess’ ears.

  • Jeffg166

    And she’d win.

  • iambu

    Tee hee. They’re terrified…

    Anagram: Michelle Obama ~ I Am Belle Mocha

  • pj

    we need to get rid of your guy first pal.

  • Kevin Andrews

    A real progressive.

  • kladinvt

    Whatever the Democratic party does, ditching Perez, and replacing him with Keith Ellison, would be a good first step.

    • Tread


      • kladinvt

        Cause Perez is just more of the same, and that ain’t working.

  • Tread

    She would mop the floor with little Donnie Short-fingers.

  • David

    She’s not going to run. My guess is that she’s had more than enough of DC and realizes she can do as much or more good as a private citizen. And she’s right.

  • Mark McGovern

    I adore her. But….the political dynasty thing is not palatable to many, and presents it’s own challenges. I fear what such a run would do to such a genuinely nice person.

    That said, clearly I would vote for her.

    • danolgb

      Also, that’s not the definition of a political dynasty. It’s more of a power couple.

  • joe ho

    She’s not Che Guevara enough to satisfy the Slurandon, Stein, Bernie or Bust nutjob crowd.

  • BobSF_94117

    Well, until this year, I’d have said she isn’t qualified…

  • Bob Black

    World Net Daily is only running this article to excite THEIR base. I think Democrats should keep any plans for 2020 very “close to the vest” so Putin is caught off guard instead of having 3 years to get his troll machine in gear.

  • She’s not. I wouldn’t object if she did. But why would she want to put herself through that AGAIN. I’m sure twice was more than enough.

  • BlindBill

    the Nazi-gelical leadership needs an enemy that they have prepared their followers to hate – since those types of christianists already hate everyone who is not a white male psudo-xtian – they will speculate on every brown, black, yellow, red, rainbow, other or no-religioned person they can to keep their comrades fearful and sending donations to “not-for-profit” foundations

  • Stubenville

    As much as I would love to see her as President, it wouldn’t be fair to ask the Obama family to take yet another eight years of abuse. And Michelle would be far more poised and intelligent on her worst day than Cheetolini has been on his best.

    • canoebum

      She has more poise in one sleeveless shoulder than he’ll ever muster in his entire detestable life. Plus, she can actually form grammatical sentences and string them into meaningful paragraphs expressing coherent thoughts. But you’re right. She’s suffered enough already at the hands of the Magalodytes.

  • ian

    Since when is World Net Daily a reliable and respectable news outlet? I bet this rumor will be spread around the usual propaganda outlets to frighten the base that gasp! The Obamas are back and they’re still Black, and she’s a female on top of it! A liberal, educated, accomplished, African American Woman as potentially POTUS? That’ll motivate the base to vote against Americas and their own interests.

  • gaycuckhubby

    My wish is for Gillibrand BUT i would very happily vote for Obama!!!
    And I think she would win in a landslide

  • Henry Auvil

    This country should be so lucky.

  • Professor Barnhardt

    Fake. He said “Democratic,” not “Democrat.”

  • DevineBovine

    “Oddly, I’m totally OK with this”

    Yes, that is odd. I’m beginning to believe our nation would be better off if passing an IQ test were a prerequisite to vote.

  • j.martindale

    Please, let’s stop talking about the presidency as though it was a King of the Prom prize. Let’s find someone to fill that position based on experience, not popularity. Mrs. Obama is a lovely woman, but has had no executive experience in government.

    • Bj Lincoln

      She is educated and did get an education as First Lady for 8 years. I would vote for her before anyone else.

      • j.martindale

        The First lady is a ceremonial position. And I have a Ph.D., and am equally unsuited for the office of the Presidency.

    • leastyebejudged

      This. Your local politics determines who ends up in the White House.

      Stop electing criminals and liars, and put an end to the dynasties.

  • lymis

    Joe Biden would be an amazing president.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    If only.

    But she’s already said no, but hey, when has that stopped reich wingers from lying.

  • Eli Bradley

    Can’t a woman reclaim her time without everyone wanting to know her next move?

  • ted-

    Let her have time in “retirement,” geez. She’s “served” her time for our country. Give a break, which she’s earned. Great idea otherwise…

  • Paula Key

    The U>S>A and the world needs you, Michelle.

    • TexasBoy

      I like Michelle Obama, but I think someone in their mid-40s, like JFK was, would have a better chance getting the popular vote

  • NZArtist
  • Sporkfighter

    Damn, I’d vote for her, I’d donate to her campaign, I’d knock on doors for her.

  • KentDean

    Were I to have even an infinitessimal scintilla of belief she’d run, I’d be headed to the pharmacy right now to pick up a bottle of the lotion I’d be using to soothe the brush burn on my ass brought about by my whipping out my wallet to retrieve the required identification to cast my vote for her.

  • leastyebejudged

    Not even remotely qualified.

    If the DNC does this I’m OUT of the DNC permanently.

    The very last thing we need in this country is ongoing royal family rule, and you should ALL be ashamed of yourselves for even entertaining the thought.

  • Ore Carmi

    I really doubt she’ll run. I don’t think she’s the sort of person who wants to handle the bs of politics.

  • JCF

    Sigh, If Only (Ain’t Gonna Happen. Ever, people. Let it go.)

  • rednekokie

    I adore Michel Obama — but she is not my first choice for President.
