    Boo Hoo Hoo. She has a problem and he knows it. Her mouth has gotten him in trouble twice already, he better muzzle her or accepted the fact she is a drain on his run.

    I'm a bit disappointed in him for this particular comment I must say. It might very well be low-class, but it's nothing he shouldn't have expected. As if he's the first presidential candidate to have his family attacked.

    But I still hope he wins.

    His wife IS a valid target when she stumps for him and makes ignorant comments like she has in the past. He better get her to be quiet from now on or suffer the consequences of his wife's mouth.

    The guy functions in his own world, there's no doubt about it.

    And you just know he wanted to say "white trash talk" instead of "low class".

    He sort of reminds me of the Clintons in their younger, dumber years, when they thought they were "above it all" and everyone should accept whatever they said at face value, and never, EVER ask questions. Or at least questions that weren't approved first....before the press turned on thme....

    Wait a minute, now you're just being nuts. White trash talk? Are you saying only whites are capable of being low class?

    Whoops, forgot: :cool:
    Though honestly, I think he thinks that....he really pissed off a huge percentage of the country with his "clinging to guns and religion" and antipathy to those not like themselves comments. I don't think he was referring to poor blacks in Atlanta....

    Are children fair game. Do you recall how Reagan’s daughter dissed him? How about when his wife consulted astrology. That was a hoot. No. I don’t buy it. It is not fair. We are not voting for his wife. We are voting for Obama. Leave spouses out of it. I think that it is sort of cowardice and desperate for people to go after spouses.

    And they were both ridiculed and mocked and criticized for it.

    Besides which, Nancy wasn't speaking to the public about her astrologers, or what she thought of Americans and their views of them.

    Mrs. Obama should be given some leeway as far as personal things...she shouldn't get blasted for what she wears, how much she weighs, whether or not she has relatives who have done distasteful things. But if you're CAMPAIGNING and you're criticizing the American people, and you're talking to the issues, it's idiotic to expect people to not respond to what she says because she's somebody's wife.
