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.

Should I Feel Sorry?

Joe Soptic lost his wife to cancer.  I felt bad for him.

Joe Soptic

Now I don’t.

Maybe I am wrong for saying so, but I really don’t feel much sympathy for him anymore.

The only person I feel sorry for in all of this mess is his wife.

Cancer is an ugly thing, and it takes the lives of far too many people.  The difference between Soptic and other survivors of those lost to that horrible condition is that they don’t run around blaming others for the sum of all of their woes, much less specific people.

In what represents a new low in modern American politics, the Obama campaign has coordinated with one of its super-PACs to create one of the most heinous pieces of propaganda that I have ever personally witnessed.

In most circles (even most liberal circles) this ad has been rightfully scorned.  But even within the past hour, I witnessed Donna Gentile O’Donnell, advisor to Democrat Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, actually come out to defend the ad, saying that it was appropriate and did not cross a line.

What’s worse is that I couldn’t tell if she was lying, or if she really believed what she said.

Either way, it is a sad indictment of the current state of American politics that anyone like her could come anywhere near a position of political power.

I’d feel a lot more sympathetic to Soptic being used as a tool for people like O’Donnell and Stephanie Cutter (Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager, and coordinator of these attack ads), except that he is a completely willing tool.  A tool in every sense of the word.

Instead of condemning Mitt Romney and blaming him for the death of his wife, Soptic ought to be out singing Romney’s praises.  The steel mill where Soptic worked was in a death spiral, and set to close down, when Bain Capital purchased a controlling interest in it.  If anything, Romney provided Soptic with several years of employment that he otherwise would not have had.

Romney had stepped down from an active role in Bain Capital a full two years before GST issued layoffs and closed that mill, and a full seven years before Soptic’s wife became ill and was diagnosed with stage four cancer.  Ironically, since Romney’s departure, Bain has been run by Obama bundlers and supporters of the very people currently using Soptic for their own political gain.

And what of Soptic’s union?  When Soptic was layed-off, did they not have any responsibility to him?  Or, were they just interested in him when he was still able to pay union dues?

This whole episode is just disgusting, and it shows how filthy and low Obama and the Democrats really are.

So much for “Hope and Change”.

Reid Takes a Bullet Full of Crazy for Obama and DNC

It has been an interesting week in the world of Politics.

Again, I could do with seeing less of this guy.

“Dirty” Harry Reid, the Senate Leader from Nevada, has come out to accuse presidential contender Mitt Romney of failing to file tax returns for ten years.  Oh, the joy he brings to a political pundit and strategist like me!

Reid makes these accusations based upon an obviously solid “source”…  himself!

Nevermind that the IRS, currently under control of the Obama administration, has never found fault with Romney.  Nevermind that Romney has released more tax returns than Reid (who has released exactly zero).  I delight in the irony of such an accusation coming from someone who lives in the Ritz Carlton, has dubious connections to organized crime in Nevada, and got very rich shortly after becoming a Senator, even though a Senator’s salary really isn’t all that high.

Senate Leader Whackadoodle just keeps on giving.

But Harry Reid doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him.  Obviously, he couldn’t care less what conservatives think, but he doesn’t care what other liberals think, or what the media thinks, either…  at least not right now.

That is because Harry Reid got re-elected in 2010 and he has another four years before he has to care what anyone thinks of him.  By then, everyone is sure to have forgotten this.

But even Reid himself is highly unlikely to believe his own story.  So, why make it all up?

As I pointed out in my article yesterday, the Obama campaign is desperate to dig up some dirt on the squeaky clean (for a politician, anyway) Mitt Romney.  Everything they have tried to use against Romney has fallen flat, and they’re out of ideas.  They need more dirt, so they have turned to Romney and they’re practically begging for his help.  But that rat bastard Romney just won’t budge!  How dare he..?

So far, the Democrats have tried everything they can think of to get Romney to help them, and none of it is getting enough traction in the press to force Romney’s hand.

Enter Harry Reid.

Obama and the DNC needed someone to escalate things into the realm of crazypants, and Reid fit the bill.  He’s perfect for the job.

The only thing Reid has to lose right now is his position as Majority Leader in the Senate, and he stands a much greater chance of holding on to that job if Obama gets re-elected.  As the Senate Majority Leader, the media is obligated to give him coverage, which spreads the lie almost as well as if Obama himself were to say it.  Reid can feel safe making the accusation from the Senate floor, because doing so gives him legal immunity from being taken to court for anything that he says, and Reid is bulletproof electorally.

Perfect!

Now DNC operatives and liberal pundits are free to distance themselves from Reid publicly, while rushing to the airwaves to claim that “Romney can clear all of this up by just releasing more tax returns”, which has been their goal all along.

While it is typical of the liberal mindset that the accused must prove himself innocent rather than the accuser proving guilt (at least when it comes to Republicans), that isn’t really something upon which anyone should focus.

The real thing of interest to a pundit like me is that the liberal sharks don’t smell any blood in the waters.  They really WANT to smell it, but they don’t…

They’re being denied their feeding frenzy, and it is making them slowly go insane (well, okay… more insane).

Expect them to get crazier as we get closer to November!

Someone pass the popcorn…
