Isn't she a Republican? And actively supports GOP candidates?
She is trying to undo her long, anti-gay Republican background now? Makes use wonder when Kwan will flip back over to the Republicans again. Had Mitt Romney won, you know the RepubliKwan would have gone back over.
Kwan ALREADY HAS a position with the Federal Government, given to her by GW Bush.
R2 that was a volunteer non-partisan position. She wasn't paid.
This is her first paying gig.
Kwan has apparently given up her most recent career of teaching Republicans to skate on thin ice.
So... your point being she loved GW Bush so much, she worked for him for free?
Kwans ex-boyfriend was a major campaigner against gay equality in the workplace and part of the GOPs God Squad. He introduced Michelle to GW. But that is not the real kicker. The REAL thing which hangs Kwan, is her current Beau is a registered Democrat, BUT Kwan is still a politically active Republican.

Link please in the present tense of her being an 'a politically active Republican.'
She is still a Republican. What type of person who works in a field dominated by Gay Men, would be a politically active Republican? How messed up is that? Kwan is like a Republican Female Interior Decorator.
Maybe she is an Independent? She is now working for Obama! And hopefully Susan Rice.
"What type of person who works in a field dominated by Gay Men, would be a politically active Republican?"
Try getting out more. There's a wide open world out there. What an idiot.
R2 when she took that VOLUNTEER job in 2006 she was still in school and she stressed it was a NON-partisan position
SI: Could you do this job without sharing the views of the Administration?
Kwan: That's why this position is so great: It's not my personal or political views. It's just about my experiences. That's what I'm going to talk about. Questions about what's going on in Iraq or U.S.-China relations -- you know what? I have no right to comment on that.
There was never any evidence that she was a Republican - she was bashed without any justification for doing so.
Now we can see that things aren't quite as they appeared to be at the time.

Now that she is 1) Engaged to a guy whose family has deep Democratic roots 2) She is now working for the Obama administration.
Who is she engaged to, R13?
Kwan is a Republican and supported Mitt Romney in 2102.
[quote] Another photo of Michelle RepubliKwan with her best buddy, George W Bush.
And how many pictures has GWB poses with other Democrats?
Asians ruin everything.
WTF? Does Barack have a thing for Asian figure skaters? I've known men who had a real fetish for Asian women.
There was no one else to give this plum job to? Like maybe someone who worked hard to get him elected? It's not as if she is the most qualified or something and there's no one else.
Michelle Kwan is a case of mediocroty. Never forget Saha Cohen's early dramatics before she had to adhere to rules. Cohen, a true iceprincess. Don't forget the stretch and the splits. Her beautiful visage compared to Kwan's huge sloppy nose and laziness on the ice. Such sour grapes with her Sting song of Fields Of Gold. Everytime I hear that tune it reminds me to give it all that I've got. I wanna be the elegant Cohen not the middle of the road Kwan. It really comes down to who your parents are to make it at the Olympic level. The true talent will never be known. It all depends on the parents. A true talent will be stifled if they are under the roof of the lazy parent who won't bother rising early to get them to practice. So yeah, you're not wrong when watching Olympic games and innately knowing you'd do better. You never saw that level because your parent(s) was too lazy to drive you to practice no less really show up for parental responsibilities. Olympians are the product of non-lazy adults supporting... so never blame yourself.
She's totally Republican. She has called women who have abortions 'murderers' on her blog and written that she'd like to patrol the border to keep immigrants out.
R28 link please
Obama has given positions to a lot of Republicans.
Being a democrat, Obama has given positions to a lot of Democrats as well.
You should know by now that Obama knows what he's doing.
Exactly r10. It's stunning to come here and read such filth. Many of us are PROUD Republicans and love this party and will CONTINUE to love this party despite what the nuts here post. And we have every right to post here as you do. This is most DEFINITELY NOT Liberal space despite what the trolls here try to tell us.
Regardless there is no proof she is a Republican.
I bet she'd doing this to gain access to the White House so she can leave the back door open for Tonya Harding to sneak in with a big and heavy club.
Bullshit [R-28]. Total bullshit.
[R-27] Cohen will NEVER touch Kwan in skating history.
Awwww.Good for her. But I will miss her obsession with and pursuit of...ME!!
Olympic GOLD, bitches!!!
If Kwan is a repug, she's open minded enough to have a Democrat boyfriend and is working in the Obama Administration. You want cunt? Try Mary Lou Retton. Repug to the core and so is her real estate husband.
Kwan seems like a lot of young women, they could give no shit about politics, they just take on whatever ideas the boyfriend or husband has.
Seems like she got a good dude this time. Best of luck Michelle. I always hoped she would have gotten the gold.
Michelle is the Glenn Close of figure skating.
Kwan does whatever her man tells her to. She used to date a Republican big wig. Kwans Dad is a hardcore Mitt Romney Republican, but most women in figure skating are Republicans, so...Sarah Hughes link:
Her job will be teaching diplomats how to use chopsticks. Calm down.

Really? You're proud of bigotry? Of discrimination? Of ignorance? Of denial of scientific data and of science? Of efforts to destroy Social Security and Medicare? Of tax cuts for millionaires? Of massive deficits? Why?

Actually, you don't have any "right" to post here. Nor do we, of course. All of us post at the discretion of the owner of the site.

ROFL.... Yes, actually it is. But hey don't let any inconvenient facts get in your way. As you've shown on other threads, reality isn't something that matters much to you.
Kristi Yamaguchi is the Republican, you dummies!
Maybe she was raised a Repub because of her Repub father and followed that path in her early adult life, marrying a Repub, working for Bush.
Maybe she matured enough that she saw the light and rejected her father's idealogy, hence the divorce. She marries a Dem who aids in removing the brain-washing and she decides to work for Obama.
I could see it. The fact that her father is one says a lot.
But then she could still be a Repub only working for Bush and married to a Dem a la Carville and his wife.
