#KnuckleheadsforObama: Condescending FLOTUS says ‘reach out to knuckleheads’ for votes

Stay classy, Michelle Obama! For the first time, she’s proud of knuckleheads. Aren’t you pleased, Obama supporters, that Mrs. Obama thinks you are knuckleheads?

More from Politico:

“Talk to everyone you know — your friends, your neighbors, that cousin you haven’t seen in a while, that student sitting next to you in class. You know he’s kind of a knucklehead,” the first lady said. “You know the one.”

“Tap him on the shoulder. Be nice. Don’t call him a knucklehead. Not to his face. You just want to encourage him to get to the polls,” Obama said. “But tell him what’s at stake.”

Wow. It’s funny, but many believe that “knuckleheads” are people would would repeat the same mistake.

Twitter users weigh in and they call out Mrs. Obama for her typical sneering contempt.

And, Twitter runs with it.

The hashtag #KnuckleadsForObama is born. Keep it coming, Twitter.

And stay classy, Michelle Obama.

      Hard to see where they could have gotten that idea.

      Excuse me, “HRD 2 C WERE THEY COULD HV GOT10 THAT IDEA!”

  • grais

    She needed to tell those knuckleheads not to call the knucklehead a knucklehead to his face.
    How old is she, again?

    Knuckleheads. Like the “University of Chicago Hospitals” knuckleheads who paid Michelle 273k as Vice President for Community and External Affairs. Those knuckleheads.

    I guess she fears Dinglebarry has been so pathetic that they’ll even lose the knucklehead vote that put them in office the first time back in ’08.

    • Colleen Kelly

      Choking on my coffee at Dinglebarry was worth it. But in all seriousness, does that mean I can call all the Obama lovers at work knuckleheads? I mean their queen did refer to them as such. I think I would get lockjaw before the morning was over if I went up to all of these knuckleheads.

      • Love of Country

        Oops, sorry …… thanks for not holding it against me.

    what an UNattractive knuckleface first lady!

  • TiLiNi

    “Knuckleheads” interpretation: “lady parts”, voting booth hackers, dead people, illegal immigrants, criminals, double dip voters, Black Panthers, lazy OWS bums, Charles Barkley, Charles Manson, etc.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    Wow, what a classy broad! She hates everything, except of course herself and money..oh oh and the things money can buy! Although she hates us taxpayers who give her the money she so loves..biting the hand that feeds you?

    So I’m guessing the 53% are the knuckleheads she’s speaking of. Well I guess it’s better to be a knucklehead than braindead. Right? Sorry Mrs. Obuma, I think it’s the other %ers you should be looking at. You know the ones who rely on the government for everything? Yeah, them.

  • Jack Deth

    Class act, lady.

    I guess she’s talking to her and hubby’s 47%. Since masochists could easily be ‘knuckleheads’.

    The more you show yourself, the more voters are going to turn their backs on you and stay home.

    • Amerenma

      *sigh*. I will be so happy once she and her knucklehead are gone. Just a few more days!

  • NumbuhOne

    Should be easy – Just call them on their ObamaPhones.

    Guess what, Mooch? I already voted, and here’s a hint — not single candidate was with a party starting in “d.”

    Foxtrotting see you next Tuesday.

    • AMSilver

      Your comment about parties not starting with ‘d’ got me thinking… Maybe there is a way to make a viable 3rd party. You just get one that starts with a ‘d’ and appears above ‘democrat’ on ballots. You’d probably get a majority of democrat voters that way. Call it the ‘damned good’ party, or something like that.

      • Guest

        “Damn! They’re not Republicans!”

  • W Randall

    She said “But tell them whats at stake.” sounds like a plug for Romney to me.

    • AZcommenter

      More likely that she was referring to the $1.4 Billion that taxpayers paid to keep her, her family, and their legion of taxpayer-paid flunkies living large last year.

      It’s all those taxpayer-funded wagyu dinners that she’s worried about losing — that’s what is at stake — the steak!

    For the first time in my life I’m ashamed of the First Lady. Classless.

      I was going to say the SAME thing!

    • Paul

      Took the words out of my mouth. What a waste of Oxygen those two are.

  • Aestro

    In her defense, anyone still undecided by October 15th probably is a knucklehead.

  • stillinthe60s

    So she thinks the Republicans are knuckle-draggers and BO’s base is made up of knuckleheads? I guess the smarter of the two is no longer debatable? Heh!

  • ratizbad

    The Hussein family fits right into Knuckleheads with a little pepper poured on there silly little faces.Can you use salt and pepper with Michelle food program,Or not.

    But Ann Romney is soooo elitist, you guys! /sarc

    • Guest

      Have you met her? Do you know her? or are you just listening to the ads? Have you ever met a cancer survivor that is an elitist? Think for yourself for once and do some real research.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        Pro-tip: the “/sarc” means it was a sarcastic remark. Sometimes also seen as “/s”.

  • EEKman

    Rofl Oh COME ON! Youre telling me that in your dealings with everyday people that you never run into a person who you would consider a ‘knucklehead’? Where was the outrage when Romney called 47% of you moochers who will never take responsibility for your lives? Shes just telling us in a cheeky way to talk to people we wouldn’t normally and put your assumptions aside. Get a sense of humor.

    • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

      Go back and watch Sesame Street. Do you think that Obama doesn’t know that over 50% of Americans don’t pay taxes? 47% is a kind assessment. Most of those that don’t are takers. A large part of takers are in that position because the current administration can NOT produce a jobs program.for them. What’s Obamas answer to this dilemma? Give them a phone. What’s Bidens answer? Laugh it off.

      • EEKman

        It is shocking how callous and ignorant you really are. Are disabled veterans takers? Are the elderly on fixed income takers? Did you know the Obamaphone was started under Reagan with the horrible thought that everyone should have access to communication? The cell phone program was signed into law by Clinton and took effect before Obama even took office, Really you don’t think that people should have a phone to respond to job interviews or call a doctor? We are not living in the jungle anymore you caustic knuckledragger. You are part of a society that has agreed that we should take care of each other. Get used to it. Biden cleaned Ryan’s clock and you are too stupid to even understand the actual words that came out of his mouth. That’s being generous and assuming you turned Fox News off long enough to actually watch the debate.

        • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

          You know the difference. Do you really think that a family of five should be given 5 cell phones? Do you think America was terrible and unsocial before cell phones? Do you think we should have families that grow from welfare and continue the family culture because it is more profitable than a menial job is? People who have spent their lives working and they and their employers have paid for Social Security, Medicare, etc are not takers. It’s the ones that have never contributed to this country that are takers. And Biden was a clueless clown. He won nothing.

          • EEKman

            How does that have anything to do with Obama? Your taxes dont pay for the cell phone program, its not a mandate. The carriers pay for it. If the carrier makes a line item on your bill then complain to your carrier that you dont want to pay the extra 50 cents. Obama didnt weaken welfare work requirements AT ALL, in fact he did the exact opposite. So how is it even relevant? I doubt you even watched the VP debate. Stop watching Fox News. Its not doing you any favors.

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            I doubt you know me well enough to doubt me. And you’ll never know what I do with my time. And yes, we can see how effective his welfare correction plan is working. If his plans keep working so well, we will all be takers. Are you serious that you believe the phones are free? The phone companies don’t have to list the item… we are being charged for them… and I think you know that too.

          • EEKman

            Call your carrier and say “I’m sorry sir, I’m morally opposed to disabled veterans having access to a cellphone in case they need to call a doctor. I think that old folks should just die alone. Hey it’s not my problem they can’t afford life alert. I don’t believe anyone should get a second shot at a job and have a way to contact a potential employer. I’d much rather have that 50 cents a month. Please remove the universal access charge from my bill as im not legally required to pay it” Go ahead. I’ll wait.

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            Typical non-sensical BS. We have 50 million people that are satisfied in a welfare state and you throw out disabled vets? Do you not know that vets are only in the 47% Obama discusses… they have never been in the 47% that Romney discusses. As I said above about elderly people… they have paid for their Social Security… they aren’t takers. You need to grasp the true 47% and stop with the liberal BS. You have to remember… it’s the 47% that will vote for Obama due to his hand outs… not everyone in the country.

          • EEKman

            The cognitive dissonance is strong in this one.

            So now there are 2 separate 47%? A Romney one and an Obama one… ooookay so by your logic only 6% of people pay taxes….

            Heres another fact for you:
            Romney’s geography of dependency is way off. The Tax Foundation finds that the 10 states with the highest percentages of “nonpayers” are mostly Republican territories in the deep South.

          • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

            You are much dumber than I thought… as I tap you on the shoulder…

          • EEKman

            I know you are but what am I

    • People Corporation

      Maybe Romney should propose that we bring them into the 53% fold so everyone gets treated equal. Presidunce is all about everyone doing their fair share right?

  • BeyondPolls

    First her own version of “The private sector’s doing just fine” and now this? She is so out of touch.

  • $129448

    don’t call them a knucklehead to their face, just call them a knucklehead behind their back? hmmmm, interesting.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Yes. Michelle Obama endorses bullying.

      • $129448

        exactly what I was thinking

      • Zanshi

        She’s endorsed by Dan Savage, the “revenge bully”. That’s enough for me not to endorse her.

  • Tony0920

    They can have the knuckleheads – so long as we get the geek, dweeb, and spaz vote.

  • Michelle

    I would tap the knucklehead on the shoulder, but she’s behind gates at the White House.

  • http://twitter.com/Mr_Shy Mr. Shy

    In their first debates, both KNUCKLEHEADS — Obama & Biden — demonstrated to the world just how boorish, detached, corrupt, and narcissistic they are.

    If I call you FLATUS instead of FLOTUS, does that make me a knucklehead?

  • Cynthia Flanagan

    Nice talk, classy huh? now you know where she came from Chicago, talking the tough talk that no first lady has ever uttered those words. Classless!

    • Colleen Kelly

      Kind of reminds me of that billboard with Bush smiling and waving that said “Miss Me Yet?” and how they should have one of Laura Bush saying the same thing. She was a classy first lady. The complete opposite of Snarkasaurus.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    “don’t call them knuckleheads. not to their face…” well, it wouldn’t be sophisticated that way.

  • http://twitter.com/WayRight Blair Trusty

    If she wasn’t married to a clean, well-spoken black man nobody would ever know who she was.

  • Garth Haycock

    I’m surprised that Mrs. Obama would talk about herself and her family in that manner.

    How about a new campaign slogan – “Knuckleheads For Knuckleheads”.

    “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud to reach out to knuckleheads.”

  • Brandon

    Use your idiot friend to get a vote for my husband, then talk about him/her behind their back. Sounds like the same thing Obama does to get votes

  • Terika

    ok – we need a big Commie “Workers” Fist poster (for the knuckles part) and FLOTUS’s mug under it – She’s the Knucklehead! Then send it all over twitter!
    Any arty ppl out there? Get on it! send it to: @TkPisces thanks!

    • alumin

      Good! Make sure you put “Sieg Heil, comrad knuckleheads” under her mug!

  • alumin

    Well….like ol’ drunk uncle Joe – maybe it didn’t come out right, but she always says what she means! :)

  • paevo

    How rich is that? A semi-literate Affirmative Action recipient who has never held a real job in her life talking about “knuckleheads”…

  • Justin Levesque

    Whenever I see or hear her, I want to eat a cheeseburger out of spite.

  • People Corporation

    Taking some time off from bullying the fat kids, I see.

  • Paul C.

    Can you imagine what she says behind close doors.

  • Paul

    It is so alarming that the president is encouraging people to call others names but not to their face. Does talking behind their back and name calling (bullying) make it ok? It is sad to say but this childish and idiotic behavior is their standard practice. These two are so fake and happen to be the worst scam AND curse ever perpetrated on the American people. Their idealogy is a great departure from the American standard and we have to get them out of office ASAP.

  • marcellucci

    So remember kids…if someone’s convincing you to vote for O’Bama….you just might be a knucklehead……

    Weren’t “knuckleheads” responsible for Obama’s election in
