There are many things I will miss about the Obama White House: having a first family that genuinely seems happy to be a family; a president who valued diplomacy; a first lady who was highly educated, stylish, graceful and who tried to be a positive role model. What I won't miss is the seemingly endless barrage of attacks on her for the most mundane things.
In a list that is by no means exhaustive, here's a roundup of the vitriol I can't wait to say goodbye to.
1. She expressed some mixed feelings about being proud of America as a black woman, which was obviously unpatriotic.
2. She's "strikingly ungracious." (Jim Geraghty, writing for National Review)
3. She doesn't look like a first lady (and she does pushups). (Virginia voter Bobbie Lussier)
4. She disrespected the flag, as determined by lip readings of Obama whispering something inaudible to her husband during a ceremony. (Washington Times, American Thinker, conservative commentator Debbie Schlussel)
