Michelle Obama’s Prepared Remarks

Here they are.

And while I would love to say that the same hope he gave to the streets of Chicago is exactly what this nation needs I would be buying into the rhetoric their party is famous for.  Has anyone given thought to the fact that the people who pulled up their bootstraps and got back on their feet might have done it regardless of who the leader was?  This next statement from her speech reads like a fairy tale.

“That’s why he’s running — to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make health care available for every American, and to make sure every child in this nation gets a world class education all the way from preschool to college. That’s what Barack Obama will do as President of the United States of America.  He’ll achieve these goals the same way he always has — by bringing us together and reminding us how much we share and how alike we really are. You see, Barack doesn’t care where you’re from, or what your background is, or what party — if any — you belong to. That’s not how he sees the world. He knows that thread that connects us — our belief in America’s promise, our commitment to our children’s future — is strong enough to hold us together as one nation even when we disagree.”

What I see happening is enough people will have had enough and through ingenuity and good old fashioned American work they will pull it together regardless who is president.

Just like Larry Winget says, “Success is your own damn fault.”  If you want it bad enough it doesn’t matter who your president is or who your mayor is or who might be your neighborhood president.  What matters is what you want.  And if he wants to take credit for that so be it.  But it absolutely doesn’t matter who is president.  What matters is what YOU want and what you are willing to do to get there.  Because it still is a land full of opportunity.  All it takes is one fellow American to remind of you of that, not the president.

    Well said! This quote strikes me as odd:

    “You see, Barack doesn’t care where you’re from, or what your background is, or what party — if any — you belong to. That’s not how he sees the world.”

    If this were true, he wouldn’t be running on the Democratic ticket. He’d be running as an independent, regardless of whether or not choosing a party would help his cause. But what do I know; I just vote so I can complain because I’ve decided no one’s fit to run the country and it’s not really gonna change that much anyway.
