Michelle Obama -- Wake The Hell Up!
"We're a divided country, we're a country that is just downright mean. We're a nation of cynics, sloths and complacents. We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day. Folks are just jammed up and it's gotten worse over my lifetime. And doggone it, I'm young. Forty-four!"
That's yet another fine example of liberal, "Blame America" philosophy. It's odd how Michelle Obama opines that things have "gotten worse" in America over her lifetime. Forty-four years ago, folks would be taking shots at a black man so close to winning his party's Presidential nomination. Her rhetoric is even more shocking given that the Obamas are a stunning embodiment of the American dream. Both Barack and Michelle have law degrees from Harvard. The couple's combined salaries in 2006 were more than $430,000. Barack earned an additional $551,000 in book royalties and the family lives in a $1.6 million home in Chicago. Sure Michelle, things have gotten worse in your lifetime.
And what about America being 'downright mean.'? Really? The United States donates more money to fight AIDS in Africa than all other nations combined. The United States donated more money to tsunami victims in S. Asia than all other nations combined... and most of that was private donations. The United States has sacrificed thousands of her nation's best to liberate the Iraqi people from a vicious, murderous tyrant while the rest of the world did nothing. Blacks won equal rights protection under the law during Michelle's lifetime. Organized racism and discrimination is NOTHING compared to what it used to be and what's left of it is kept alive by only a few nutjobs and extortionists (Jesse Hi-Jackson).
Yes, Michelle Obama, America is so bad and so mean. That probably explains why each year thousands of Mexicans stomp through the Arizona desert, risking their lives to live in a country that is so bad. I'm sure it also explains why so many Cubans each year attempt to cross open ocean in INNER TUBES to escape Communism for freedom here in America.
America is the last, best hope for freedom and liberty. And anyone who sees it different, including the Obamas, should try living in tyranny like so many others throughout the world.
