"Lay Off My Hitman Wife"

Obama Warns GOP "Lay Off My Wife"

Sen. Barack Obama ripped into a Republican ad today that targets comments made by his wife, Michelle, and called the GOP tactic "low class" and "detestable."

The Illinois senator told "Good Morning America" that he expects hardball tactics from the Republicans if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee.

"But I also think these folks should lay off my wife," he told "GMA" as his wife chuckled beside him.

So, Obama puts his wife out there to speak, as a strong independent woman, for the campaign to impress women and she says some really stupid thing which makes the Obama angry that people are taking what she say seriously so he says to lay off his wife because she, as an independent woman, is his wife and not part of the real campaign.

That should make women comfortable. At least it made Michelle chuckle. We'll always have that.

Ms Obama Upset

Dear World, May I Drive My Jeep Today?

Pitching his message to Oregon's environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to "lead by example" on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.

Obama wants to lead by following those he perceives as our betters throughout the world.

That's change I can't live with.
