Dissecting Michelle Obama

I started this article with every intention of going through Michelle Obama’s entire speech at the DNC convention.  That  didn’t work out as planned.  I got about a quarter of the way through her speech before I just could not bear even to look at the text of it anymore.  It is beyond absurd.  I will go through the rest of it at a later date, if my scheduling allows.  

But even just this first portion is incredible!!!

“Over the past few years as first lady, I have had the extraordinary privilege of travelling all across this country.”

WE KNOW!  You’ve travelled all over this country and several other countries…  ALL ON OUR DIME.

She goes on from here to talk about wounded warriors and heroes that make sacrifices for other people, often risking their lives.  I would have no quarrel with that part of it, except that it is obvious empty rhetoric and pandering to a group that does not support this president because they know full well how much (or little) he has supported them.

“Serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege.  But, back when we first came together four years ago, I still had some concerns about this journey we’d begun.”

Wait…  Serving..?  How exactly is she serving us?  By telling us what we should feed our children?  By vacationing and partying at the taxpayer’s expense?  And yes, Michelle, we are all fully aware that you had some “concerns” about the “journey we’d begun”.  We know that you first became proud of America only after your husband was elected.  We have doubts about just how proud you are of America, even today.

“While I believe it if we dig deeply in my husband’s vision for this country, and I was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, I was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance.  How would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight?  How would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they’d ever known?”

“See our life before moving to Washington was filled with simple joys.  Saturdays at soccer games, Sundays at grandma’s house, and a date night for Barack and me with either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, I couldn’t stay awake for both.”

(LAUGHTER)

One should EXPECT laughter after hearing this joke!  Hell, I don’t even know where to begin!  Obviously Michelle learned something about writing an auto-biography from her husband.  Her narrative here is just as fake as anything that Barack wrote (assuming he actually wrote it) in Dreams of My Father.  Where are the fact checkers now?  Michelle Obama was NOT a soccer mom!!!  Not even REMOTELY a soccer mom!  But here she claims to have been pulled from that care-free life to serve as First Lady..?

This is the type of lying that liberals are known for, and the media will allow it to pass unchecked because they support the liberal agenda.

“And the truth is, I loved the life we had built for our girls. And I deeply love the man I built that life with and I did not want that to change if he became president.”

(APPLAUSE)

“I loved Barack just the way he was.  You see, even back then, when Barack was a Senator and presidential candidate, to me, he was still the guy who picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out, I could actually see the pavement going by in a hole in the passenger side door.”

(LAUGHTER)

This should read “incredulous laughter”.  Does anyone believe that Senator Barack Obama was driving around in a car that was rusted out?  Anyone..?  Liberals, do you really buy this crap?  

There are two types of liberals; those that believe the lies, and those that happily repeat them, knowing they are lies.

“He was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he’d found in a dumpster.”

(APPLAUSE)

SAY WHAT?!?!?!

Senator Barack Obama was a dumpster diver?!

And PROUD OF IT?!

Michelle Obama just called the president a dumpster diver at the DNC convention, and not a single liberal media outlet even so much as cocked their head in wonder.  On the contrary, they APPLAUDED!  

This is like an episode of the Twilight Zone, folks!

The rabbit hole goes deeper from here.  Too deep for me to get into tonight, but in preview, I will say that Michelle claims that their lofty Ivy League educations were paid for with student loans, and further claims that they had to work very hard to pay them off.  Barack Obama went to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard on Pell Grants and Stafford Loans..?

I would love to see some proof of that!

And I would love to see even one alphabet network fact check her speech.

Honestly.

Bloomberg Has Lost His Mind

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has become the shining example of the reasons why we should never allow nanny-state politicians even the smallest measure of power.

Mayor Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg

From restricting the size of your soft drinks, to his inane comments on gun control, Bloomberg has typified the politicians that feel they have nothing better to do than to tell you how to live your life.  But he takes it to a whole new level…

Because none of his nanny policies make even a bit of sense.

I don’t like Michelle Obama going around the country telling us what to eat, because it isn’t her place to do that.  But at least she makes a good point; I can’t deny that my own diet is pretty poor.  However, Bloomberg’s policies are far worse, and he is actually in a position to make them law.

I don’t want to go too far into the policies I mentioned earlier except to say that nothing prevents someone from buying two 16-ounce soft drinks if they want more soda, and nobody really wants to hear a lecture about gun control policies from a man in charge of a city with an extremely high murder rate.

I’d rather focus on the latest adventures of Nanny Bloomberg.

Apparently, he has decided that he knows better than mothers how to feed their children.  He’s locking up the formula and hiding the key in the hopes that it will coerce more women to breast feed.  Sounds like something worthy of the full concentration of the mayor of one of our largest cities, right?

According to a story by Neil Munro of The Daily Caller (sorry, Neil, I didn’t set out to co-opt your work two times in one day, but I just can’t help it!) as of September 2nd, city hospitals will be required to hide the formula and encourage mothers to breast feed their newborns.  Hopefully, this policy stops at some point prior to the child entering high school.

Predictably, the reaction has been less than favorable.  Even breast-feeding advocates are shaking their heads.  But what are they going to do about it?  Probably nothing, except for maybe shooting off a few words to the comments section of The New York Times.  Like every other crazy policy in New York, it will go into effect and the people will come to accept it as part of the absurdity of life in the big city.  The politicians they elect will just move on to produce the next episode of “insane pet projects“.

Sorry New York liberals, you elected this guy and now you’re stuck with him.

Please don’t ever send him to Washington, DC.
