One of my favorite First Ladies had this to say to Americans: " You just don't luck into things as much as you'd like to think you do. You build step by step, whether it's friendships or opportunities". The lady who aspires to accompany her husband into the White House said this about America and Americans at a political rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” Since Mrs Obama was born in 1964 she has had the experience of witnessing the first manned landing on the moon in 1970, the appointment of Colin Powell then Condi Rice to the position of Secretary of State. The appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. Thomas Sowell, Nelson Mandela, Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King's receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom,just to name a few Black people who received the prestigious award! A lot has been written and said about the race bating and hate speeches that have come from the mouth of Obama's mentor for 20 years, but Michelle Obama's one public statement disqualifies her from being the First Lady in my opinion. Both Wright and Obama, in their different ways, have for decades been promoting the far left vision of victimization and grievances-- Wright from his pulpit and Obama as a community organizer for the radical group ACORN, as a collaborator with former Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers, and as the member of the U.S. Senate with the farthest left voting record. Do Americans really want to give these two, privileged and wealthy radicals, the opportunity to run a Country they both feel is so wrong that they need to Change it. Change we can surmise from their leftist leanings will be a lurch to the left if anything they say is to be believed. Make no mistake, if Obama wins, Michelle Obama like Hillary Clinton when Bill was President, will be active in forming Presidential policy.
