Barack Obama talked with Glamour.com, and blamed a right wing conspiracy on his wife Michelle’s negative ratings. Glamour’s editor-in-chief Cindi Leive asked Obama about these negative ratings and he said, “It’s infuriating, but it’s not surprising, because let’s face it: What happened was that the conservative pressâ€”Fox News and the National Review and columnists of every ilkâ€”went fairly deliberately at her in a pretty systematic way…and treated her as the candidate in a way that you just rarely see the Democrats try to do against Republicans.” He took a special shot at Fox New’s Sean Hannity by saying, “If you start being subjected to rants by Sean Hannity and the like, day in day out, that’ll drive up your negatives.” Obama also claims to have “thick skin,” but his campaign sure cried about the latest cover of the The New Yorker magazine, calling the satire “tasteless and offensive.” Of course the “proud” comment, her college thesis, or her 20 year relationship with the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago have nothing to do with those negative ratings. Michelle should be careful, before Obama throws her under the bus with all his other past acquaintances that were dragging him down.
