AP Says Michelle ‘O’ Just Happened to be Shopping at Target? Riiiiight!
AP photographer Charles Dharapak is ballyhooing a photo he claims to have just happened to snap of First Lady Michelle Obama shopping at an Alexandria, Virginia Target department store. But come on. Does anyone believe that an AP photographer just by chance happened to spot the First Lady shopping at Target and just happened to take photos of her in the act?
Does anyone believe that this isn’t an orchestrated effort by the “Office Of The First Lady” (â„¢) to counter the idea that Michelle is an effete, waster of the tax payer’s money?
Even CBS is pushing the idea that this photo brings big spender Michelle into the ranks of us reg’lar folk.
Hushed reports have been raging for sometime that Michelle is an unhappy camper in the White House and has frequently lashed out at staffers over nothing. Some top Dems fear that Michelle is the biggest liability the President has and her reputation as spending like a potentate on her lavish trips and fancy clothing is beginning to have an effect with the American people.
Then, voila, here comes a photo of good ol’ Michelle just shoppin with the hoi polloi at Target. Just when she needed something to change her image. Convenient, no?
I’m glad the Associated Press could uses it’s power to help Queen Micelle spin her propaganda. Good going, Old Media!
