Michelle Obama just gave a fine *** speech.
Damn, she killed it.
Barack drove a hoopty, she loves her children, and the economy might not suck when yours grow up!
Yeah, were people expecting her to put down their own campaign efforts?
In fairness, I think the Obama's are tremendous speakers but she didn't say anything worth a ****. That's their MO.
Michelle Obama: hottest first lady ever or the hottest first lady ever?
You must've missed the parade of "my dad worked in a coal mine for three pennies a day until he died of AIDS of the cancer while in the mine" that ran across the stage of the RNC.
Or, you're expecting some kind of major policy speech from the First Lady, which is equally as absurd.
And if you really think the point of all of that was trying to get people to "cry a river," then I have to question if you even listened to it.
Equally stupid. I'm not a republican, however, I'd say their economic policies are equally unproven yet slightly less disproven.You must've missed the parade of "my dad worked in a coal mine for three pennies a day until he died of AIDS of the cancer while in the mine" that ran across the stage of the RNC.
No, just more CHHHHAAAAANNNNGGGEEEE, please!Or, you're expecting some kind of major policy speech from the First Lady, which is equally as absurd.
Well, why else did she talk about her massive debts when she was younger? To motivate us? But there's a problem - debt really isn't that big of a deal if you can get a job and pay it off, unlike half the kids graduating today.And if you really think the point of all of that was trying to get people to "cry a river," then I have to question if you even listened to it.
You can win an election with a riveting speech but you can't fix the economy with one.

There's a little thing called connecting with the audience. The main topic of her speech was that Obama knows what it's like to be in the middle class and that he's trying to help the middle class. Therefore, it made sense for her to draw parallels between their lives and the lives of many young middle class Americans.
And in response to your earlier post, if Michelle Obama were just graduating from college this year, she'd still have a job because she went to Princeton and Harvard Law. The economy is pretty simple at this point. Good education with a degree in something applicable (not English), and you'll get a good job.
Your post is terrible.
Your whole PREMISE is terrible.
Her job was to go out there and help people connect with Obama on a personal level. Except for those clearly blinded by their own partisanship, she did that.
She wasn't supposed to make policy announcements, or discuss how they were going to fix the economy, or any of that. She's the First Lady. You seem to continue to think she should've been making a speech that the President would've given, and that's just obvious nonsense.
It was a good speech. She did a good job with it. Acknowledging that fact doesn't mean you suddenly love Obama and plan to vote for him. Trying your best to talk about anything but that fact just makes you look silly.
