How now, my lord, why do you keep alone,
Of sorriest fancies your companions making,
Using those thoughts which should indeed have died
With them they think on? Things without all remedy
Should be without regard: what’s done is done.
Michelle Obama told Barbara Walters that she didn’t lose any sleep on November 2. In a post-Thanksgiving interview airing Friday, the First Lady described the night of the Republican tsunami:
“I go to bed early. I can’t stay awake for the returns… I gotta get up, work out. I figured…it was gonna be whatever it was gonna be the next day. So I did, I did go to sleep,” she said with a laugh.
The “shellacking” her husband received didn’t register on the worry-scale for Mrs. Obama, whom the President described as his “chief advisor.” The midterm election turned out to be a referendum on the last two years of Obama’s big government policies. But for Lady Mac-chelle the poor and misguided Americans who voted on November 2 didn’t understand what had been accomplished for their own good:
There is nothing that I would look at in this year… I wouldn’t look at not giving this country health care…I wouldn’t want to take back any of the investments that we have made in education…So I think from a policy perspective, he has done an outstanding job.”
Michelle advised Barack to “focus on what needs to get done” and not indulge those pitiful commoners who rejected his fundamental transformation plans. The first lady’s heedless loftiness has indeed reached Shakespearean proportions. She “gave this country healthcare” and “invested” in the Department of Education’s new program.
Besides acting as an Obama infomercial, the Walters interview revealed who’s really running the show. With David Axelrod, and Rahm Emanuel going or already gone, the people will continue to witness their own leftist Lady Macbeth in action.
