    As a contrast, Ann Romney signed a petition in Massachusetts seeking to outlaw marriage equality. The petition even went so far as to seek the end of domestic partner benefits.

    The difference could not be more stark.

    There’s not a thing wrong with her teeth you ignorant f*cktard. You’re no better than the trashy republicans who call her fat when in fact she is healthier than probably 95% of Americans. Our FLOTUS is smart, beautiful, and on our side, unlike the Stepfords the GOP keeps trying to sell.

    I HOPE ALL OF THE NEGROES IN THE CROWD “BOO” Michelle FOR DISRESPECTING NEGRO VALUES. I WILL BE GLAD WHEN THESE COLOREDS GET OUT OF THE White House.

    Michelle LOOKS A MESS IN THIS ARTICLE’S PHOTOGRAPH – PINK LIPSTICK ON BIG LIPS AND AN “Afrocentric” NECKLACE. “TACKY-TACKY.” SHE MUST HAVE A NEGRO FASHION ADVISOR.

    You people redefine gullible. “Barack sits up nights reading letters from citizens and thinks how to help them?” What he thinks about is how to kill more jobs, slap restrictions on small business, wreck this economy and advertise more entitlement programs. What a joke! Fortunately, he will not be reelected. This will be a repeat of Reagan vs. Carter.
