After being introduced by military mother Elaine Brye, First Lady Michelle Obama addressed the DNC on Tuesday night, speaking in support of her husband, President Barack Obama, and talking of her own role, including self-titled "Mom-in-Chief."
"I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as 'us' and 'them.' He doesn't care whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above. He knows that we all love our country, and he's always ready to listen to good ideas. He's always looking for the very best in everyone he meets."
Yes, folks, that is what she said, according to an instructor at a School for the Deaf and Blind who watched the video. The video is shown at normal speed, 3/4 speed, and 1/2 speed with no banners obstructing her lips.
It should come as no surprise that she and Barack have no clue about America's reverence for, nor reference to, our flag, or that both want to eliminate all memorials and ceremonies commemorating the 9/11 attacks.

First Lady Michelle Obama’s pitch to voters last night relied on the premise that she and her husband understand what it is to struggle to make ends meet. She spoke movingly about their early years–about how a young Barack Obama drove a car that was “rusted out” and found his furniture “in a dumpster,” how they both came from families that had to “scrape by.” Her fairy tale–however well-delivered–was one great, big, colorful lie.
Both Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama began their adult lives with a leg up on the rest of America. They attended elite schools: Michelle went to Whitney Young, the public magnet school for Chicago’s upper class, while Barack attended Punahou, the private prep school for the top stratum of Hawaiian society. They were accepted to Ivy League schools despite undistinguished credentials, and both attended Harvard Law School.
“[B]elieve it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bills were actually higher than our mortgage,” Michelle said. That sounds like a raw deal–but in fact reflects their fortunate circumstances. They had both just graduated from a very expensive law school, and their combined income from cushy law firm jobs dwarfed the repayments. Barack also soon enjoyed a second salary from the University of Chicago.
They had expensive tastes, reflected in the $277,500 two-bedroom condo they bought in 1993–a high price even by today’s standards. Several years later, they moved into their $1.65 million mansion in Hyde Park–with the help of fraudster Tony Rezko. Barack often told a story of hardship on the campaign trail in 2008 about having his credit card declined–once. The fact that he thought this counted as real hardship speaks volumes.
There were a number of ways Michelle Obama insulted the intelligence of the American public on Tuesday. Having had her husband previously assert his concept of "you didn't build that yourself", Michelle Obama immediately set off on a journey to try to contradict him.
She attempted to show that she and Barack did build it all by themselves by telling the following lies:
1. Michelle said they both came from families which didn't have much.
WRONG. Barack's Grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was a VP at the Bank of Hawaii who paid for the expensive tuition for Barack and his sister at one of Hawaii's most exclusive private schools.
DOUBLE WRONG. A review of Michelle and Barack's tax returns show they were trust fund babies, receiving money from TWO family trusts.
2. She claimed that she and her brother went through college with nothing but student loans and grants.
WRONG: Her brother was Craig Robinson. He was the super player on Princeton University's basketball team before he went on to be drafted by the NBA....There is a whole lot of money in BASKETBALL SCHOLARSHIPS.
3. She asserted that Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham,started working as a bank teller and was a victim of the glass ceiling.
WRONG. Madelyn Dunham broke the glass ceiling. Obama never told that Madelyn Dunham was one of the first female VP at the Bank of Hawaii.
4. Michelle said that one of the reasons her husband supported the Lilly Ledbetter Act was so that other women would not experience the same discrimination as his grandmother.
WRONG AGAIN: As a lawyer, Michelle Obama should know the Lilly Ledbetter Act did not cover promotions and hiring. It only covers equal pay issues.
5. Michelle deliberately omitted the discrimination that Madelyn Dunham DID face. Madelyn faced discrimination because she was WHITE and not a native Hawaiian. For example, the Bank of Hawaii was advancing the image of Hawaiian ownership of their bank. Native Hawaiians HAVE LAND rights that no one else in Hawaii has. They receive trust proceeds from the OHA and are allowed to own land in Hawaii unlike other people.
REMEMBER THE ---VOTE---TO PUT GOD and JERUSALEM BACK INTO THEIR PARTY-------
To little to late.. We know how they feel about God... And Oblam....IS NOT GOD!!!....
WHAT a bunch of liars
These hypocrites have spent years kissing up to athiests and every other fringe group taking God out of everything in public and in Government and abandoning Israel, giving our hard earned tax dollars to the Palestinians AND MUSLIMS--who pay the widows of suicide bombers.
God is forgiving but God was what our country WAS founded on and God will not bless Pelosi or the Democrat bunch of hypocrites and neither will true Christians and Americans bless these hypocrites with our vote in November. Talk about eating crow in desperation, after pressure from the public made them take the Muslim Prayer off the DNC program. They make me sick.
DNC continues to flip flop when it is convenient for public opinion! Executive order for the dream act to allow illegals to openly break the law, gay marriage (which I have no problem with) .....so many times Obama and the DNC CHANGE what they originally say they stand for
Not surprised, but truly disgusted! Why would anyone vote that man to a second term?
This is nothing more than a last minute ditch effort by Obama to win back the Jewish vote that he has been steadily losing. The Obama administration has shown tepid at best support for Israel throughout the entire administration. Obama has now realized that he is likely going to lose Florida in the election because he has lost a significant chunk of the Jewish vote due to this lackluster support of Israel. Now he is trying to win that vote back with this obviously politically motivated move. Obama does not now, nor has he ever been a strong supporter of Israel and never would have made any statement supporting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel if it were not for the fact that he needs the Jewish vote to get reelected. This is one of the most blatant and egregious examples of pandering I have seen from Obama yet. It just goes to show in very clear terms that he will say whatever he needs to say in order to get people's votes, knowing full well that he will never do anything to support that statement once the election is over. Unfortunately for Obama, Jews are smarter than most of the minorities he panders to and will see right through this last minute ditch effort to con them into voting for him. The last three and a half years of his statements and policy demonstrate his true feelings towards Israel and he is not fooling anyone with this eleventh hour pitch to try and fool people into believing he actually cares.
The only thing the campaigner in chief believes in is what will get him votes.
Quit paying attention to what this snake oil salesman says and start paying attention to his actions.
He is only religious when it's convenient...and what religion we just can't tell. At times he's supporting a muslim day of prayer, at others he's standing up against school prayer or refusing to preside of national day of prayer...and yet at others he's at church with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
OH and MAYBE he will EXPLAIN THIS------
explain why OBAMA-Biden gave a Finnish Car firm $500,000,000 to build competing electric cars in Finland after they promised Biden to use a factory in his home state Delaware to build the cars and use American workers?
Will you please tell me WHO owns GM (General Motors)??? Isn't our loving Pres in charge there more than about anyone?? GM just recently announced their interests in MOVING MOST of their operations to China. WOW.....A company bailed out of FORECLOSURE with our tax dollars moving to CHINA. Now Obama is still claiming that HE SAVED the automobile industry & saved MILLIONS of jobs just so that he could send them to CHINA...... Just exactly HOW is this protecting the auto workers??????????????????
IF YOU POST ---POST FACTS---IF YOU POST GARBAGE YOU WILL BE DELETED--IF YOU ATTACK ANYONE SAME APPLIES-----IF YOU ARE ADULT ENOUGH TO DISCUSS THE ABOVE ---WELCOME!!!
