The first SENTENCE of Michelle Obama’s ‘remarks’ at last night's opening of the DNC set the tone for all the lies that followed. After being introduced by a military Mom, she began:
“Thank you so much, Elaine. … We are so grateful for your family's service and sacrifice … and we will always have your back.”
And I've seen it in our men and women in uniform and our proud military families … in wounded warriors who tell me they're not just going to walk again, they're going to run, and they're going to run marathons … in the young man blinded by a bomb in Afghanistan who said, simply, "… I'd give my eyes 100 times again to have the chance to do what I have done and what I can still do."
She and Jill Biden decided, right after the 2008 election, what their concentration would be on – how THEY as first/second ladies could be of service. They chose to help and support military families. Thing is – THEY NEVER TOLD MILITARY FAMILIES THAT! [Ed. Note: This part was NOT in her ‘speech as prepared for delivery] The camera panned the audience and I didn’t see a single person in military uniform. The camera zoomed in on a row of old vets wearing American Legion hats and medals…. and they were NOT smiling. The bile rose in my throat watching those men being used as pawns. On and on she droned about how wonderful the military was, how brave these patriots were, the 1% fighting for the freedoms of the 99%. Cheers and sign-waving. I recalled her comment to Barry at a 9/11 Memorial Ceremony, watching as the Color Guard folded the flag into a triangular shape, according to custom, and then leaning over and saying to him: ‘All this for a damned flag?’ and then she smirked. Obama turned to her, smiled smugly and nodded his head in agreement. [video below]
And the lies continued. She described seeing Obama slaving late into the night, bent over his desk as he worked on making things better for the American people. It became obvious she also believes that ‘you didn’t build that.’ She spoke of student loans she and Barry used for school (no mention of his status as a foreign student), how “he started his career by turning down high paying jobs and instead working in struggling neighborhoods where a steel plant had shut down, fighting to rebuild those communities and get folks back to work because for Barack, success isn't about how much money you make, it's about the difference you make in people's lives.” (I was slowly sipping water at this point, trying to keep my dinner down. And I was successful until….)
This Michelle, this friend and supporter of military families, praised the wonderful Barack and all he had done for America, particularly saving GM (whose stock is in the tank) and the creation of a job-killing, nation-choking new entitlement that is Obamacare. And then………… she said…….. ‘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’ (At this point, I leaned over and vomited in the pail beside my chair. And the sheeple went wild.)
