Michelle Obama and the Newark Killings
Many conservatives are saying that Michelle Obama took a shot at Hillary Clinton by saying that: one of the most important things that we need to know about the next president of the United States is, is he somebody that shares our values, is he somebody that respects family, is a good and decent person? So our view is that if you can't run your own house, you certainly can't run the White House."
Sounds like an implicit criticism of Hillary, huh. In spite of Barack's denial that his wife meant to attack Hillary, the accepted interpretation is that Michelle is going after Hillary, since Barack is afraid to.
The accepted interpretation is wrong, or at least improbable. What Michelle Obama said next is revealing: "So we've adjusted our schedule to make sure that our girls are first, so when he's traveling around, I do day trips. That means I get up in the morning. I get the girls ready. I get them off. I go and do trips. I'm home before bedtime." Seen in context, the quote can be read very differently.
The execution style slaying of four Newark college students by an illegal immigrant gang member has caused many to question Newark's "sanctuary city" policy. It is doubtless true that a crackdown on illegals would have prevented these murders, it seems to me that the focus should also be on the fact that the leader of the killers was out on bail for the rape of a five-year-old girl. The amount of bail? A paltry fifteen thousand dollars. The judge who let him out on the streets should be blamed as well as our immigration policy.
