First Ladies Opinions?
October 2, 2008

Now, why do they interview first ladies about their political knowledge? I don’t know if it just me, but I don’t really care what they say.

Not just first ladies but presidential candidates wives being interviewed. For real? Don’t care!

Being married to someone doesn’t really make you an expert in their line of work.  No one asks me what I think about the proposals my husband  is working on and how they impact the companies partners.

Now before you start writing angry emails saying how Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan have done all sorts of great things STOP!

I didn’t say that they haven’t. Most first ladies have not just planned meals but watched them be made by the team of chefs. They have overseen the watering of the rose garden. They have taken 1000’s of people on tour around the White House.

Those are very important jobs. 🙂

All kidding aside, the first ladies really do have impact on whatever cause they take up. They have raised money and awareness for lots of worldwide problems. Which they should be thanked and recognized for. THAT DOESN’T GIVE THEM A DEGREE IN ECONOMICS OR POLITICS!

A wedding ring doesn’t actually make you an expert on foreign affairs or healthcare reform. You aren’t suddenly qualified to throw out the first pitch at Yankees Stadium because you say “I do!” 

Ladies get your own gig! Let him do his and shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! No more talking about the unemployment rate. 

OK, I’m done.
