Fox News calls Michelle Obama "Obama's Baby Mama" (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x3348843)

Source: Salon.com

un. 12, 2008 | An alert reader wrote in just a little while ago to let us know about something he'd spotted on Fox News Wednesday afternoon. During a segment discussing conservative attacks against Michelle Obama, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama, the network described the former as "Obama's baby mama."

I checked, and sure enough, as you can see below, our e-mailer was right. In fact, that description was displayed on screen several times during the segment, which featured anchor Megyn Kelly and conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, an FNC contributor.

Sons of bitches. Could this be any more blatantly bigoted and racist? A "Baby Mama" is someone that has a child outside of a committed relationship. How long have the Obamas been MARRIED? And for anyone who wants to dismiss this, do you really think they'd ever call Cindy "McCain's Baby Mama"?

Un-F*cking-belieable.

So the DUmmies are all outraged at FoxNews again. The funny part IMO, is that ABCNews quotes MO herself intruduced BO as "my babies' daddy" last year in an article about the Presidential candidates and Father's Day. Here's the Quote (http://www.abcnews.go.com/GMA/Politics/story?id=3287454&page=1):


And when introducing her husband, Michelle Obama referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as "my babies' daddy."

Sounds to me like FoxNews was just playing off Michelle's own words.

Well it only took 96 posts but " Robb" posts MO's use of "My baby's daddy" in reference to BO. "Robb" even got the context of the introduction.

I would 80% of the people there at Repubs. They said that when Obama won his Senate seat, Michelle introduced him as her 'Baby's Daddy'. They were like, nice try though. Anybody know if this is true??

And another poster said that the way the thing is worded, it's the outraged liberals who are saying 'stop picking on my baby mama', meaning it's their quote.

96. Interestingly enough, yes

Here's the CNN copy (http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0411/02/se.06.html) of the transcript, November 2, 2004:

BLITZER: Barack Obama, a lot of Democrats have a lot of hope in this young man.

GREENFIELD: Well, I must say that, you know, in an era when conventions are scripted to the nines and you go to conventions because you sort of have to go, every once in a while somebody gets up and does something that absolutely blows the place apart.

And I think when Obama began to speak the sign for me of a really great speaker, as a retired speech writer, is not when people jump up and yell. They always do that. They'll jump up and yell for the phone book. When he quieted the crowd down as he told his story and the story of America this guy is a compelling figure.

BLITZER: Was he the first president of the Harvard Law Review?

WATSON: First African American president of the Harvard Law Review.

BLITZER: That's what I meant.

KING: He's made it. I think he's coming.

WATSON: He's coming up.

BLITZER: We can take a look. Maybe he will and maybe he won't but she looks like she's about to introduce him. Let's listen in.

MICHELLE OBAMA, WIFE OF BARACK OBAMA: My baby's daddy Barack Obama. Yeah!

BARACK OBAMA, SENATOR-ELECT, ILLINOIS: Thank you, Illinois. Thank you. Thank you, Illinois. I don't know about you but I'm still fired up. I am fired up. Look at this crowd. Thank you, Illinois.

100. Well, that pretty much invalidates all of this thread's faux outrage

If Michelle uses the term, that kinda opens the door for others to mock it.

98. I think there is a problem of
context. For one Michelle Obama to introduce her husband as her "babies' daddy" if true, is it not?" There's a cuteness factor to that-I can almost picture her saying it with that beautiful smile of hers. I actually have no clue if she made this comment or not, but am simply stating I see no problem with this statement...

However, with Fox's comment, they are purposely using nefarious language AND that damned bitch Malkin (I refuse to use her first name, as she shares the same one as me), I might add. Anyone with half a brain knows that there is not a shred of "cuteness" to it at all, but that the racist connotations are obviously there

I like that spin. "Its OK when someone cute does it, but fox news isnt cute, so we should sue them."

We should apply this logic to mini-skirts.

146. I don't care if "Michelle said it first!"....

For all the "She's the one who said it, why can't they say it?" crowd which, thankfully, there doesn't seem to be too many... Did Michelle refer Barack as "My baby daddy"? Yeah, it appears that she did. In jest, with no intent to be insulting to him or herself.

People, people, people... Do I have to go through the list of things black folks can say to/about each other that other folks are not allowed to say--or, more accurately, stuff that, if other folks do say it as they have a clear constitutional right to, might still get them cracked in the mouth regardless of granted constitutional privilege?

Naw, I won't go that route as it'll seem it's a double standard (which it is that you violate at your own peril). Let me put it like this. Sometimes when I forget stuff I say to myself "You're such a moron". If I'm with friends on occasion when I get annoyed with myself they'll sometimes jokingly agree, "Yeah, you are kind of a dumbass". I chuckle at them and tell them to shut the hell up and move on with my day.

Here's the thing. Could you imagine what my response would be if some prick I don't know just randomly decides to call me a name or insult me? My first comment would likely be "Excuse you?" as I like to do sometimes and then it's likely our conversation would be all down hill, though terribly "colorful", from there. Why? One, they're not trying to be funny, they are actually trying to demean me. Two, they don't know me like that and they're out of line for sticking their nose in.

I don't care if Michelle said it. Michelle was making a joke. Michelle was trying to be funny (and it kinda was). Michelle was in no way trying to demean herself or her husband. Their supporters were a crowd that perceived it as being "cute" because they had no desire to insult or demean them either.

There is no doubt that Fox News thought it was being funny here, the question is who were they trying to amuse and what kind of mentality and way of thinking were they trying to appeal to with this joke? By the by, if this little graphic was a simple reference to a comment Michelle had made of course they explained the context of their joke, letting everyone know why they decided to call her that as opposed to just throwing that out there for kicks... Right?

Emphasis mine.

Wasn't it Joe Scarborough from Pmsnbc who said that Fred Thompson's wife looked like a pole dancer?

The liberals constant outrage is so..........annoying.:rolleyes:

Romney's 'niggardly', Obama's 'cakewalk', and Clinton's 'spadework' come to mind as good vocabulary gone wild. The hypersensitivity linked to here is.... silly.

Its sad that they let politics invade their personal lives. Disowning family members because they arent on the same political scale? Wow ! My dad is a Lib, My mom is more of a centrist. We dont talk politics. And if we do, we agree to disagree. Family and friends are more importiant than this crap.

Actually, I'm outraged at Fox. Not once have they found an excuse to put Megyn Kelly in a bikini on screen. One would think they could come up with some lame story involving her at a beach or something! ;):D

This is the true mark of a Moonbat; they have to find something .... anything to piss them off everyday. No matter how trivial, no matter how stupid, no matter how insane. :rolleyes:
