Charles Krauthammer on Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech: “I’m Sure It Was a Great Speech But I Didn’t Buy a Line of It”
Question, Who was Michelle Obama talking about in her speech last night? It might have been the Obama of 2008, it certainly is not the one of 2012.
Oh, Michelle Obama was talking about Barack Obama during her speech last night? The failed president who gave himself an “incomplete” for his first term in office as is looked upon as the most partisan and divisive president ever during a presidents first four years. Wow, Michelle Obama actually had the nerve to say the following?
“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”
Last night first lady Michelle Obama gave her speech at the DNC in Charlotte, NC talking about the man that she wanted to be given another 4 years in office. However, during her speech I really did not know who she was talking about. Her glowing comments and praises of an individual hardly compare to the individual who has been President for the past four years. Michelle Obama made it sound like Barack Obama does not have 4 years to be judged on, whether it be political or personal.
Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“She told the story of a Gandhi. And considering the way he’s conducted himself in the presidency and particularly in the campaign, with ruthlessness and determination and drive, it’s not quite a plausible story…. I’m sure it was a great speech but I didn’t buy a line of it.”
Was Michelle Obama’s speech delivered in a powerful way, yes. Was it a good speech for the first lady, yes. Did anything she say compare to the Barack Obama we have seen in the past four years, NO!
First Lady Michelle Obama tells supporters on the campaign trial to vote for Barack Obama on November 2. Um, there is just one problem with Michelle’s request. The election is November 6. However, as many times as I have disagreed with Michelle Obama, this time I agree with her 100%. Democrat near and far, I beg you … vote for Barack Obama on November 2. As stated at the Daily Caller, “November 2, Democrats. Remember that date. The future of America depends on it.”
So that one new voter that you register in your precinct — think about it — that one neighbor that you get to the polls on November the 2 I want you to understand, that could be the one that makes the difference. That one conversation, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the one that puts this over the top.
Barack Obama Eats at Atlanta’s ‘The Varsity’ … Not Sure if there are Any Michelle Obama Approved Foods on the Menu
We will just simply say, file this one under Barack Obama’s do as a say, not as I do.
President Barack Obama headed off to ‘The Varsity,’ an Atlanta-based eatery known for its chili dogs and lack of Michelle Obama’s healthy foods. It may be a right of passage for president to go to ‘The Varsity’ … sorry, not when your wife is pushing a “healthy life” menu down America’s throat. At some point, the optics of Obama’s hypocrisy will catch up to him. How do you have people telling others how to eat when you make a public spectacle eating at a restaurant that is as far from healthy as it gets. Don’t get me wrong, “The Varsity” is fantastic … it just does hot meet Michelle Obama’s mandate of how everyone must eat. What hypocrisy? Then again, its not like at Michelle’s book signing for “American Grown”, that she required photo ID, when Democrats are against voter ID laws.
Here’s to Michelle’s healthy eats …
They say when the cat’s away the mice will play… which seems to be the case whenever First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t around to watch over her husband’s daily dose of healthy foods.
Tuesday afternoon, President Obama sneaked in another fast-food pit stop st The Varsity, an Atlanta-based eatery renowned for its chili dogs and its famous 84-year-old slogan, “What’ll ya have?” Touting itself as the largest drive-in restaurant in America, The Varsity can accommodate 600 cars and more than 800 people inside its famous walls, according to its website.
Visiting this mouth-watering establishment has been a rite of passage for other U.S. presidents as well – Jimmy Carter, George H. Bush and Bill Clinton all
Ultimate Obama Hypocrisy: First Lady Michelle Obama Requires Photo ID for Her Book Signings; However, Dems Against Voter ID Laws
Talk about the ultimate Obama and Left hypocrisy …
The first lady, Michelle Obama, requires a photo ID in order to qualify to get an opportunity to get an autographed book; however, isn’t it the Democrats and the Left that are so against photo ID’s to prove who you are in order to vote? UNREAL. It is the Obama’s that have opposed voter ID laws claiming that it would be unfair to minorities and disenfranchise voters, yet its perfectly OK for Michelle Obama to require a photo ID to get a book signed? So voting is a lesser act than to get a signed Obama book? Sadly, in the Obama’s minds it probably is.
As stated on the blog Obama Foodorama:
On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady’s book at the location and leave it at the store, according to the employee. At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver’s license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to the First Lady’s event on June 12.
The liberal media, particularly Obama-boosting cable network MSNBC has done its best to attack voter ID laws as discriminatory at best and racist at worst.
Just curious, where is the liberal MSM stating the Obama’s obvious hypocrisy? The Lonely Conservative adds a rather interesting nugget, “… it looks like people have to purchase the book before being screened by the Secret Service, even though there’s no guarantee they’ll get their books signed.”
Barack Obama’s Out of Touch Problem: Michelle Obama’s Trip to Spain Cost Taxpayers $467K … The Blue Collar Democrat Vacation Backlash Begins
SACRIFICE FROM THE OBAMA’S … OBAMA’S ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH WORKING CLASS VOTERS.
Who is out of touch? It is rather hypocritical of the Obama’s to call any one out of touch when they are taking lavish and costly vacations on the tax payers dime in the midst of a terrible Obama economy. As most Americans can no longer to take any vacations, it is reveled that Michelle Obama’s trip to Spain cost tax payers $467,000. UNREAL! That is correct, thanks to the folks at Judicial Watch who uncovered the outrageous, out of touch spending from the Obama’s.
Michelle and Barack Obama have become the poster children for “out of touch,” especially with working class Americans. Looks like Barack Obama’s own class warfare rhetoric is coming back to haunt him. The Obama’s were warned about taking such a lavish vacation, they just didn’t care.
It cost taxpayers nearly a half-million dollars for first lady Michelle Obama to travel to Spain in 2010, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.
The right-leaning watchdog group estimated that the trip cost $467,585. It based its analysis on documents obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Air Force.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said it took his group “two years and a lawsuit to get these documents out of the Obama administration.”
“It is hypocritical for President Obama to fire GSA officials for wasteful conference spending, while his family went on a luxury vacation in the Costa del Sol Spain that cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars,” Fitton said.
Obama talks about shared sacrifice and ever y one must have skin in the game, except Barack and Michelle of course
Read the full story at Judicial Watch. They obtained the Secret Service records pursuant to an August 2010 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on the report during a press briefing Thursday. However, the Obama’s may have more to worry about than questions from reporters that they refuse to answer. Barack and Michelle Obama are going to have to answer to “We the People”.
Laura Ingraham exposes Barack Obama’s ‘Shared Sacrifice’ Lie
Barack Obama may have even bigger issues with members of his own party. We called this a while back that eventually Obama’s class warfare and out of touch extravagant vacations while Americans dealt with a terrible economy, unemployment, underemployment, high gas prices and foreclosures was going to catch up with him. That day is here. As reported at the Washington Examiner, Blue collar Democrats are resentful of the Obama’s lavish vacations and lack of sacrifice as they sit home taking “staycations”. That is those lucky enough to take vacation days who are actually employed.
Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing “staycations” because they can’t afford gas and hotels, are resentful of the first family’s 17 lavish vacations around the world and don’t want their tax dollars paying for the Obamas’ holidays, according to a new analysis of swing voters.
“They view everything through their own personal situation and if they can’t afford to do it, they can’t enjoy it, they don’t like Obama using their tax dollars to benefit himself,” said pollster John McLaughlin. “In this case, they see him as out of touch. While they are struggling he’s not sharing in that struggle and he’s basically doing what they can’t do on their tax dollars,” added the GOP pollster.
Out of Touch in the Rust Belt from the American Spectator.
How will this translate at the ballot box in 2012? The Gateway Pundit reminds us, if you think what they are doing now is bad, wait until a lame duck second term when they have zero accountability to the People.
More shared sacrifice from the Obama’s:
- More Lack of Shared Sacrifice from Michelle Obama … Heads Off to Ski in Aspen with the 1%
- Barack Obama’s Mutual Sacrifice & Fairness … First Lady Michelle’s Ski Trip Marks 16 Obama Vacation
- More Shared Sacrifice from First Lady Michelle Obama … Wears $42,000 Katie Decker Diamond Cuffs … Let Them Eat Cake
- Economy in Shambles and Michelle Obama Takes Secret Vacation
- Michelle Obama Spent 42 Days on Vacation This Year … Have You?
Is it any wonder why Michelle Obama needs all those vacations, it is because of her busy schedule being the most televised First Lady ever … Does it really come as a shock to anyone that the media who has been in the pocket of Barack Obama would also have the first lady Michelle Obama on en mass as well? However, at some point it becomes overkill and the law of diminishing returns for any type of political asset for Barack Obama.
When she isn’t saying let them eat cake, Michelle tells them. let them watch me on TV
Lately, Michelle Obama is no stranger to television entertainment. She’s already outpaced past first ladies, like Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, in the number of TV appearances she’s made over the first four years of a president’s term.
Dan Gainor, of the Media Research Center, said Michelle Obama really is “off the charts” in the number of times she’s appeared in entertainment television cameos, even more so “than I dare say many big name actors and actresses.”
Whether the appearances are sincere or just political is up for debate. Democratic political strategist Doug Schoen suggested they were a little bit of both.
“I think they have a great asset and they’re using it,” Schoen said. “At its core, there is an election in seven months and it helps.”
Between 2001 and 2004, Laura Bush appeared in about 12 television shows — including “The Barbara Walters Summer Special,” “Larry King Live,” “The Tonight Show,” “Fox and Friends,” “The O’Reilly Factor,” “LIVE! with Kelly,” and “Sesame Street.” Since President Obama took office in 2009, Michelle Obama has appeared on television about 44 times, and that number continues to grow.
GOOD GRIEF!!! MICHELLE OBAMA PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF BARACK OBAMA …
First lady Michelle Obama says that her husband the “President has brought us out of the dark and into the light.” Wow, he really is the Obamamessiah. NOT! I guess when Michelle Obama once said that this was the first time she was proud of America, she was really telling the truth.
Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I am so in,” Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. “I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”
ARE YOU SERIOUS? HOW FULL OF THEMSELVES ARE THESE PEOPLE?
Micah 7:8 King James Version (KJV): Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Matthew 4:16 New International Version (NIV): the people living in darkness have seen a great light;on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”
More from the Washington Times …
Let’s just add one thing, beware of false Prophets and if Michelle Obama thinks that present day economic America is the “light”, does anyone want another 4 years of this nonsense? Add to the fact that race relations in America are worse under the so-called post-racial President.
At the Summit of the Americas, Barack Obama Describes His Responsibilities … “Part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation”
More from the Vacationer in Chief …
Finally Barack Obama describes what he thinks his real job responsibilities are as President. No wonder President Obama has not focused on jobs, unemployment, a coherent energy policy or reducing the debt, he is too busy with his real job responsibility of scoping out new vacation spots. UNREAL.
Just two days after President Barack Obama gave a sharply edged response to news anchor Larry Conners of KMOV in St. Louis after Conners had asked the president about Americans who “get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations and so forth,” Obama told a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia that part of his job there was to scout out locations for a future vacation with First Lady Michelle Obama.
“I want to thank President Santos and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena,” said Obama. “We’re having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation. So we’ll make sure to come back sometime in the near future.”
Weasel Zippers has a suggestion for Obama and his responsibilities to find future vacation places, “please take her to North Korea where the two of you may enjoy their single-payer system for the rest of your miserable lives.”
Obama and his minions talk about Mitt Romney being out of touch with the American people. There is a perception with many that during these harsh economic times where families cannot afford one vacation a year, Barack Obama and the first family take far too many vacations on the tax payers dime. Now Obama would make such a comment? Sorry Mr. President but to borrow your own words, where’s the fairness? This feeling is echoed at the Gateway Pundit where they refer to the recent embarrassing interview with Larry Conners, where he [Obama] was called out for angering Americans with all of the lavish vacations the Obamas have taken. This President has no shame and appears to care less that Americans can’t afford the cost of gas and many barely get by from pay check to pay check.
We have just come up with Obama 2012 election slogan … Let them Eat Cake 2012.

Barack Obama: The Not So “SHOVEL READY” Preisident … Attends Groundbreaking Event for Smithsonian African American History Museum, Only Barack Not Provided a Shovel…
More from the not so shovel ready President … or as they say, NO SHOVEL FOR YOU!
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended a ceremony for the groundbreaking for the first national museum dedicated exclusively to African-American history and culture. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the goring breaking, Obama had no shovel. How ironic seeing that following the failed $878 billion stimulus bill, the President was forced to admit that there were no “shovel ready” projects.
Its hard to pick up a shovel by hand when you have a golf club in them all the time
It was a rather odd sight: as an array of museum officials, including former first lady Laura Bush, took up shovels at the groundbreaking for the first national museum dedicated exclusively to African-American history and culture, the nation’s first black president sat watching, no shovel in hand.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended the ceremony Wednesday for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and he delivered remarks.
When he finished and returned to his seat, a call was put out for groundbreakers to gather at the front of the stage. Obama then stood, buttoned his jacket and prepared to join in. But an official whispered something to him and he sat back down as museum officials and members of the museum’s advisory council, including the former first lady, picked up shovels for the ceremonial turning of the dirt. The Obamas remained on stage.
Protocol does not seem to have played a role. Turns out, presidents throughout history have wielded shovels for groundbreakings.
Or is it as Weasel Zippers states regarding Obama’s lack of a shovel, Kings don’t use shovels, they are only for commoners? As Fox News Charles Krautheimer has stated in the past, would Obama really know about shovel ready attending Harvard Law School? Since Obama has no idea what a shovel is, what amazing imagery of Obama without a shovel.
