Both the president and first lady attended fundraisers tonight, but it was Michelle Obama who seemed to show the clearest understanding of her husband’s fiscal policy. In short, maxing out on donations to the party that wants to grow government would be totally baller.

Translation?

You know who doesn’t think maxing out is baller? Those Republicans who insist on running the country into crushing debt slightly more gradually, thereby starving children and the elderly.

  • Jimni27

    If anyone knows anything about maxing out, it would be liberals.

    • Jd1367

      rarely with their own checkbooks, though

    • stellatruman

      And anyone with the last name of Obama that resides in the people’s house

    • WingedBishop

      Unfortunately they don’t stop 4 years after they’ve reached that point.

    • Miss Clairee

      Michelle O has been hangin’ with Jay Swizzle and Sasha Thunderthighs too long (aka Jay Z and Beyonce.) Don’t they “sing” and “rap” about “ballin”………well, in 2002 they did. Grow up Moochelle! If you’re gonna use ghetto slang which is typically used most often by degenerate losers, use decade-appropriate ghetto slang, please!

      • CatHerder

        Next comes the botox, boob lift and liposuction. Some people just can’t seem to age gracefully.

  • IronButterfly

    Michelle is a Baller!

    • Well Done

      If by “baller”you mean “beard”, as in “married to a homosexual for his benefit”.

    Baller that National Debt!

    Conservatives donate to candidates to go to Washington to protect the constitution and traditional values….Leftists donate to politicians to get elected and loot the taxpayers so they can get maximum return on their investment.

    • Catchance

      Exactly! Crony Balling.

      • Onegaishimasu

        Good point.

    • DefCon99

      Conservatives donate to those candidates, but once elected they spit on those values. Next time try Libertarians.

      • digitalPimple

        no thanks. More often than not Libertarians are just too big of cowards to actually take a stance on any given issue. It’s a way to hide and check out of the argument.

        • DefCon99

          Not true, they just take views contrary to Dems/Reps. Standing up for the First Amendment is pretty important.

    Michelle, stick to talking like a grown woman. You sound like an idiot when you try to do the “cool mom” thing and use modern slang. Then again the “cool mom” thing just never works period; if you’re cool, you don’t have to force it.

    • Garth Haycock

      She sounds like an idiot whenever she says anything.

      Doesn’t she have a garden she should be tending?

      • Zane Henry

        it would be naive to think she’s spent more than a few minutes (photo op) in that garden. They have “people” to do all that icky work.

    • Onegaishimasu

      I feel so sorry for her children…Moms who try to be “cool” usually wind up losing any street cred.

  • Well Done

    donating to any Dem campaign while 0bama is around is “full retard”, and we all know “never go full retard”

      • Garth Haycock

        Is that who it is? I thought it was one of the Hilary Rosens that Carney stalks.

  • Paracletus

    My cousin is in town tonight. She’s super liberal; one drink, and I bet you can baller.

    • Miss Clairee

      Hahahhhaaaa! If she’s super liberal, I’ll bet she’s a butter-face! Most parts of her look okay but-her-face!

  • nc

    Ok, I get that FLOTUS wants big donations. But it sounds like a foreign language to me.

  • Conrad2010

    Gee. In my younger years. “Baller” meant Copulating. My how times have changed.

    • lainer51

      probably what she meant… as in “&^% yourself”

    Maybe she can take some of that money and buy some class.

    This reminds of the time Laura Bush never used the term “baller”.

    Remember anyone who writes a check to the dimocrat party, they are people that are okay with the IRS’s targeting of conservatives and the IRS being the enforcement arm for obowmao care.
    They are also okay with obowmao’s Sequester resulting in the elderly not getting their meals on wheels and children being thrown out of Head Start.
