Michelle Obama Channels John Kerry; Accidentally Describes Barack's Presidency

Only a select few individuals have the ability to contradict themselves in the length of a sentence. Former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry was endlessly pilloried for his variation "I was before it before I was against it," and rest assured if Sarah Palin utters such a blunder we'll be hearing it blared on every cable news channel for weeks.

And yet this gaffe goes unremarked on:

"I think my husband has done a phenomenal job staying on course, looking his critics in the eye, coming up with clear solutions against staying the course," Michelle Obama told Robin Roberts in an exclusive morning television interview on "Good Morning America."

So according to Michelle, Barack has done a great job of staying the course, even as he come up with clear solutions no to do so.

Actually, that may not be a contradiction. That may simply be an accurate reflection of his policies.

Ever get the feeling that while they're in the West Wing, they each wear a t-shirt that says "I'm with Stupid", with an arrow pointing up?

I'm not saying, I'm just saying!

Come on, guys. I know it's fun to mock Michelle, but it's pretty clear that what she said is that Obama is good at staying on (his own) course rather than "staying the course" he inherited. Awkward, but not in Kerry's league.

So he is going in circles? Staying on course by not staying on course - the compass headings change but the ship stays in position.
