After the litany of speeches given by Michelle Obama this week, one wonders if she should have even gotten out of bed. In case you missed the embarrassing speeches made by the Senators wife this week I will recap for you.
After Barack Obama took a beating on his decision to no longer sport an American flag lapel pin along with the controversy over his choice to not put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem, this week the wife decided to follow in her husbandâ€™s unpatriotic footsteps. On Monday Michelle Obama Said â€œfor the first time in my adult life Iâ€™m proud of my countryâ€, was she serious? Well wasnâ€™t it Barack himself who shot one back at Hillary claiming that â€œpeople donâ€™t mean what they sayâ€? However his bride has mentioned that she was unable to be proud of her country twice this week, sounds like Michelle is poking holes in her hubbyâ€™s theory. That was Mondayâ€™s comments.
Hereâ€™s what the First Lady in waiting had to say on Thursday:
â€œI have to say that my life now is not really that much different from many of yours. I wake up every morning wondering how on earth I am going to pull off that next minor miracle to get through the day. I know that everybody in this room is going through this. That is the dilemma women face today. Every woman that I know, regardless of race, education, income, background, political affiliation, is struggling to keep her head above water.â€
I have to say that playing the victim card is not at all flattering. Michelle Obama needs to snap out of the â€œpoor meâ€ mentality. I guess Iâ€™m just blessed to travel in circles where woman are not drowning. If she has to â€œpull off that next minor miracle to get through the dayâ€ then I suggest she reevaluates her strategy on how to tackle the day. Maybe take up yoga or Pilates. After reviewing her comments thus far on the campaign trail, I am beginning to think this lady is miserable, and now sheâ€™s starting to label American women as miserable. So what is she suggesting, exercise, nutrition, therapy, or maybe religion, none of thee above? Whatâ€™s the answer you ask, well in Michelle Obamaâ€™s opinion itâ€™s the great Messiah, and no not God, but her husband Barack Obama. Yes the man who proposes change, but wants the â€œchangeâ€ to be a big surprise which will be unveiled January 20th, 2009.
One would think that being married to the man who will save American should be enough to â€œget through the dayâ€. If he canâ€™t make his wife happy, how will he help the rest of us out? His campaign platform is crumbling as I type thanks to Michelle Obama alerting voters that it takes more than waking up with the Messiah every morning to â€œkeep her head above water,â€ I guess the rest of us donâ€™t have a chance.
So I would like to hear from the Women as well as Men on this issue. Do you think that Barack Obama will save us ladies from our bad days?
