Sen. Barack Obama ripped into a Republican ad today that targets comments made by his wife, Michelle, and called the GOP tactic “low class” and “detestable.”
The senator and his wife discuss the race for the White House. The Illinois senator told “Good Morning America” that he expects hardball tactics from the Republicans if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee.
“But I also think these folks should lay off my wife,” he told “GMA” as his wife chuckled beside him.
Obama told “GMA” that he believes he will win a majority of the Democratic delegates once the votes are counted after Tuesday’s primaries in Kentucky and Oregon. Obama is favored in Oregon while rival Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York is expected to win Kentucky.
The Republicans seem to have come to the same conclusion and a GOP Internet campaign in Tennessee has an ad featuring Michelle Obama’s comments during the long Democratic campaign that “for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country.”
Michelle Obama was asked about the ad on “GMA,” but her husband said, “Let me just interject on this.”
“The GOP, should I be the nominee, I think can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record,” Obama said. “I’ve been in public life for 20 years. I expect them to pore through everything that I’ve said, every utterance, every statement. And to paint it in the most undesirable light possible. That’s what they do.”
“But I do want to say this to the GOP. If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful. Because that I find unacceptable,” he said.

Barack Obama wants to use his wife on the campaign trail but wants her off limits to the GOP. Sorry Barry. As long as she runs her mouth and campaigns on your behalf, she is open to criticism. Especially when she is such a divisive point in American Politics as she undeniably has become. Her “I’m proud of America for the first time in my adult life” comment was idiotic. She wasn’t proud when the Berlin Wall fell. She isn’t proud of any other American accomplishment. If we want to talk race. She wasn’t proud about Colin Powell and Condi Rice or Clarence Thomas. She’s only proud because a Black DEMOCRATIC made an advance. Pure party politics. She’s as big a hack as her husband.
I hope the country has enough sense to change their minds about Obama. We can elect a real President as opposed to a Marxist tool.
