WE WATCHED IT all day long and into the evening on our home Tv. Boring. Then, about 10 PM, it was Michelle Obama's turn at the podium...
She was spectacular! Warm, sophisticated, and believable. She spoke of her early years, and endearing things about her Dad & Mom, and her brother. It was really nice.
Then she spoke of her newly-found love and respect for her country, and the opportunities found nowhere else on this earth.
Her ability to communicate these thoughts and intimate feelings were far and away superior to the tired political slogans of her popular husband, Barack Obama. His "Moving Forward"...New Direction, Change, 'Yes We Can', and "Our Time Has Come" rhetoric pales in comparison.
I felt Michelle's emotional moment, and was genuinely moved. Recalling the canned political slogans, the spell was broken, reality returned.
Then, I remembered that it was she that had introduced Barach Obama to Chicago's Trinity Church, and the hate-filled sermons of Reverand Jeremiah Wright & Father Pflueger. Also, the anti-Semetic messages of Islam's Reverand Louie Farrakhan, and Barach's "associations" with Slum-lord Tony Resko, and Unrepentant bomber, William Charles Ayers. Also, the corrupt and durable Chicago Political Machine of Mayor Daley....and Obama's Endorsement this February 1st by MoveOnDotOrg's Billionaire KingFish 'Uncle" George Soros...and Senator Teddy Kennedy. reb
