Michele Obama recently met with Nelson Mandela, and told him, "I've had it up to here, I'm running for President. As a Republican, I don't want the girls being brought up in this political environment. I see what is happening, I know what they are up to, I see the direction we are heading, and I do not like it at all."
She mentioned "secret" meetings with staff members, and early morning "closed door" sessions with certain cabinet members.
She mentioned that she had a secret meeting with Sarah Palin, and indicated that there was talk that the two of them could be a one-two punch on the Republican ticket, no mention of who was one and who was two, but a close aide chided that Michele would be number one.
The first lady mentioned to Mandela that she had heard rumors of Amendments to term limits so that her husband could serve indefinitely, and that the head of state, the president, might in the future be renamed to the Ayatollah.
"This country has made me a millionaire, financially independent, and I want the girls to have that same opportunity. If "Aya," a pet name the president likes to be called, has his way, all these things may change." His idea of election reform is to have a Republican team play a Democratic team, in basketball, and the winner gets to name a president. That's his view of "election reform."
"I just don't want the girls growing up in that environment."
