The New York Times runs a comically biased "article" about Michelle Obama's all-around wonderfulness, but if you can make it to the third page, you'll find out a few things:
By 2001, Mrs. Obama, married for nine years and the mother of two daughters, had taken a job as vice president of community affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Center. She soon discovered just how acrimonious those affairs were.
Hospital brass had gathered to break ground for a children’s wing when African-American protesters broke in with bullhorns, drowning out the proceedings with demands that the hospital award more contracts to minority firms.
The executives froze. Mrs. Obama strolled over and offered to meet later, if only the protestors would pipe down. She revised the contracting system, sending so much business to firms owned by women and other minorities that the hospital won awards.
Which awards? Diversity Racket Victim of the Year? How many of these non-lowest bid contracts went to potential political allies of her husband? The Obamas were using other people's money to build their power base.
She also altered the hospital’s research agenda. When the human papillomavirus vaccine, which can prevent cervical cancer, became available, researchers proposed approaching local school principals about enlisting black teenage girls as research subjects.
Mrs. Obama stopped that. The prospect of white doctors performing a trial with black teenage girls summoned the specter of the Tuskegee syphilis experiment of the mid-20th century, when white doctors let hundreds of black men go untreated to study the disease.
So, rather than educate blacks about why they should help with a medical study that had the potential to help all of humanity, Mrs. Obama, who has zero qualification in any scientific field, stopped medical research from taking place. Swell ...

"Wasn't organizing bullhorn-wielding protestors part of Barack Obama's job description as an ACORN-Alinskyite "organizer"? Heck, she might of known the protestors from cocktails at the Ayers'..."
The Obamas' allies protest, and in return the Obamas get paid to give them other people's money to get them to go away for awhile. It's a perpetual motion machine. Nice work if you can get it.
Speaking of the Ayers couple, why does the hubby get all the publicity? Sexism? After all, the wife, Bernardine Dohrn, told 400 people at a Weatherman convention in 1969, in reference to the Manson Family murders of Sharon Tate and others:
"Dig it! First they killed those pigs and then they put a fork in their bellies. Wild!"
