Michelle Obama Laura Bush: Michelle 3X More Press Than Laura Bush

If Laura Bush had said while campaigning, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country,” (as Michelle Obama did say), Mrs. Bush would have had 50 times more press than MO, and would still be getting it – all of it negative. What a worthless “study.” I hope no government grants funded this trash.

Laura Bush and Michelle Obama

The Washington Times:

HighBeam Research scoured the 6,500 publications it tracks to see how often each was mentioned from the time her husband was elected until Oct. 20 of the third year he was in office — 2003 in the case of Mrs. Bush, and 2011 for Mrs. Obama.

The current first lady steamrolled, garnering 29,634 mentions, compared to 8,707 for Mrs. Bush in the nearly three-year periods under review.

  • Of course Michelle got more coverage. Had Laura spent taxpayer money like Moochelle, taken as many vacations on the public dime or acted the busybody in telling everyone what they should and shouldn’t eat, maybe it would have been more equal?
