Michelle Obama to America: ‘We Are Blessed to Have Him’

Michelle Obama to America: ‘We Are Blessed to Have Him’ By Terence P. Jeffrey May 1, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - First Lady Michelle Obama said at a campaign event in Tucson, Ariz., on Monday evening that ‘we are blessed” to have her husband as president, telling the audience that when he sits down in the evening to read letters that people have sent him about their troubles he sometimes turns to her and says: "Michelle, this ain’t right. We’ve got to fix this. We have so much more to do."

“We need to keep moving forward,” Mrs. Obama said.

In the speech, she also pointed to her husband’s accomplishments in health care, including making sure children get treated for “things like diabetes and ashtma,” ensuring women get “prenatal care, mammograms, contraception at no extra cost,” and guaranteeing that “our children can now stay on their parents’ insurance until they’re 26 years old."

Mrs. Obama stressed that her husband has empathy with people who are struggling in America.

“And what I want you all to know is that your President knows this,” she said. “He understands this because he has lived this. That’s why he understands these issues.

“See, Barack was raised by a single mother who struggled to put herself through school and pay the bills,” Mrs. Obama explained. “And when she needed help, who stepped up? His grandmother--waking up before dawn to take that bus to her job at the bank. And even though she was passed over for all those promotions, she never complained.”

Wrong Michelle. America will be blessed if.......
2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
We can begin turning from the wicked/wicked ways by putting your husband out of power in November.

Dear Moooooooochelle,

Two minor errors:

1. It’s “cursed,” not “blessed.”

2. It’s “it,” not “him.”

Your hubby is a spineless quota baby chicken-lip metrosexual.

“We need to keep moving forward,” Mrs. Obama said.

Forward?
You have a terrible sense of direction lady...
Under your husband more American soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan in 3 years then under Bush in 8 years.
Americas credit rating went backwards
Your husbands green energy tax dollar back companies are going bankrupt
Gas cost went up instead of down
Freedoms fought and died for by Americans since the Revolution are being chipped away.
No Thank you. You can take your moving forward and stick it where it will never see the light of day!

Sounds like we should begin a massive letter-writing campaign so he’ll read from us about what “isn’t right” lately.

Class: Today's assignment is to write a letter to President Obama about how we're troubled by the sorry state of the U.S. Presidency. She said he lives to fix those problems.

‘Michelle, this ain’t right, and we have to fix this. We have so much more work to do.’ “

She’s been using those same lines for years - - - I just noticed they used the “Moving forward” before in the 2011 speech!!!!! Seems to be a real one trick pony!!!

We got things to do, places to go, dogs and people to eat.

We can write to him about how, someone who is purported to be one of the smartest people alive, with all this Harvard education, law degree, etc., should not have been passed on out of 2nd grade, since he apparently did not learn that “ain't” is inappropriate language. We can remind him that there needs to be accountability from the public school teachers, to live up to standards, and not just pass the floundering students on from grade to grade....

I imagine it would be considered a blessing according to the strictures of Black Liberation Theology, as preached by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Michelle should have said,

See, Barack was not raised by his single unwed mother who hated America and voiced it every chance she got. The sperm donor from Kenya didn’t stay around after he got him some so the white grandmother had to take care of this illegitimate child because neither biological parent would do it. This grandmother was forced to take care of her daughter’s illegitimate child instead of moving forward in her career.

Now that sounds like what actually happened.

You didn't really imagine Michelle meant to include you when she said "we are blessed" did you?

Don't paint the grandparents as innocent bystanders in this chronicle.

Where do you think Stanley Ann got her radical anti-American views.

The fact is that Grandpa moved his family to Mercer Island, WA in order to send young Stanley Ann to a school whose principal was an admitted Communist. And it was Grandpa who selected Frank Marshall Davis to mentor his grandson -- not just because he was black, but because he was a committed Communist.

‘Blessed’??

SHE'S ‘blessed’ every time she takes a vacation, buys a trinket, etc.... she'll never see the bill for!

Anyway, what would atheists like the Obamas know from ‘blessed’?
