Michelle Obama is not too Proud to Lie

Recently there was a big stink about something Michelle Obama, wife of Senator Obomination, said. She told people that for the first time in her adult life she was proud to be an American. This caused an uproar and the spin started and the Obamas wanted us to know she only meant what she said in relation to the political process. I heard what she said and it did not appear that way to me. Michelle Malkin wrote an excellent piece about it and she hit the nail on the head.

It appears that even though Mrs. Obama has not been proud of this country, she is not too proud to lie. In Ohio she told a group of women not to go into corporate America. Now there was nothing wrong with her suggestion that these folks become teachers, social workers and nurses. However, it is her contention that getting the education required to work in corporate America is too expensive and saddles people with debt they pay for years. How does she think people become teachers, social workers or nurses? All of these professions require a college education and it can be just as expensive. Here is where the lie comes in:

“The salaries don’t keep up with the cost of paying off the debt, so you’re in your 40s, still paying off your debt at a time when you have to save for your kids,” she says.

“Barack and I were in that position,” she continues. “The only reason we’re not in that position is that Barack wrote two best-selling books… It was like Jack and his magic beans. But up until a few years ago, we were struggling to figure out how we would save for our kids.” NRO [emphasis mine

What Mrs. Obama fails to mention in the speech is that she had a salary of just over 100 thousand dollars a year that went up to over 300 thousand a year after her hubby was elected tot he Senate. With a salary like that she could certainly afford to pay her loans back much easier than the less well connected who graduate with massive debt. Barack Obama’s books might have provided a great deal of wealth and made their lives easier but they were not hurting in any way shape or form and could certainly pay their bills. She lied, his books were not the ONLY reason they are not saddled with debt. If they could not pay the loans on her salary then there is no way we should let them around a federal budget.

It would appear as if deception is a trait in the Obama family. Barack Obamination’s campaign is reported to have contacted the Canadian ambassador to the US and told him that the campaign would be saying some rough stuff about NAFTA but it was just campaign rhetoric and he did not intend to mess with the trade agreement. Obama’s campaign did not deny it, they instead said the news was inaccurate. To me this means there is some substance and CTV News is sticking to the story. Yes there were denials from both sides of the border. I guess that should set it straight because we all know that politicians and ambassadors do not lie (I never had sex with that woman) and would never deny something that was true. I don’t know if this is true but it does not pass the sniff test.

While I am discussing Obama, let me throw in a little tid bit I read at Big Lizard’s. Barack Obama has talked about the politics of old and discussed how he is not a man of the past. He talks about how dirty politics have no place in the process and discusses the dirt of the Clintons as either politics as usual or the signs of a campaign in dire circumstances. Dafydd at Big Lizard’s points out that Obama has a pattern of dirty politics. From his first run for office in Illinois to subsequent campaigns, he has been suspect with regard to the dirt and unethical behavior that is more often associated with the Clintons. Now, Obama is from Illinois and it is not unreasonable to suspect that he has been involved in the type of dirty politics synonymous with Chicago. I recommend reading the article as it is pretty eye opening.

It seems that the Obamas are nothing more than elitist Democrats who pander to the emotions of the poor and less fortunate while living lives of luxury and steamrolling anyone who gets in the way. I can understand that they started off with debt and had a hard time. As pointed out in her speech:

Mrs. Obama also bemoaned the amount of money she has to spend — nearly one-third of the median household income in Zanesville — on piano, dance, and other lessons for her two children.

Must be tough for people who have to figure out how to buy food for their children to hear how tough Michelle Obama has it paying for her daughter’s necessary lessons. Reminds me of a story I heard (I think about the Great Depression) where school children were asked to write about poverty. A child from a wealthy family wrote; Being poor is tough. The butler is poor, the cook is poor, the maid is poor, the…”

The Obamas want to spread hope. They just hope you do not wise up and realize what they really are.

    I can’t stand it when rich people pretend to be anything BUT. The Obama’s remind me of the Edwards…just average everyday people right?

    NOT. They live in a mansion. They choose to spend/waste 10,000 a yr per kid on pIaNo and dAnCe lessons- skills the kids will really need in life, right?

    I call BS. These people are wealthy and have no place speaking like they are anything but that.
    The hypocrisy smells so bad I need a fan and open windows.

    What kind of insane logic are you using? You took a speech that was already cherry picked by the National Review, and drew some crazy conclusion that they didn’t even draw. The Obamas have been quite clear that one of their goals is to make higher education more affordable. That it’s too expensive. To be a teacher or a nurse, you need a degree or certificate. You know that. Michelle Obama NEVER suggested that people shouldn’t go to college because it is too expensive. She suggested that people go into public service, regardess of the fact that it doesn’t pay as well. The reason: We need teachers. We need public servants. NEVER did she suggest that anyone shouldn’t go to college. It doesn’t even say that in the National Review article.

    P.S. As a long time Chicago resident, I feel obligated to correct Big Lizard on a couple of points. Blair Hull was an incumbent of the Illinois Democratic machine. He was endorsed in the primary by the grandaddy of that machine, Mayor Daley. Barack Obama beat him DESPITE the machine. Jack Ryan? There is no one there to blame except for the national Republican party. Obama was against the divorce records being released, and criticized their release when they came out. It was the Republican party that pressured Ryan to drop out of the race (due to some moral superiority they wanted to display) and who then replaced him with Alan Keyes. It seems completely irrational to me that they would do that, but they did. Funny thing is: Ryan was already losing in the polls, but still had a fighting chance despite the divorce records being released. He definately would have done better than Keyes. The Republican party has only themselves to blame for losing that race.

    Randy, not insane at all. Regardless of what their goal is, she said to not go into the corporate world because it cast too much in education and straps people. By saying to go into other professions she is indicating that it does not cost as much for those degrees. To get a degree or certificate in any profession one is required to go to school and it costs money.

    You are the one ignoring the content and that is, she claimed that the only way they made it was Barack’s books and that is a LIE. She made a third of a million dollars a year. No one is saying she should spend a fortune on her kid’s lessons, blah, blah. They are typical liberal elitists and nothing more.

    Care to discuss Obama having people removed from the ballots or the NAFTA issue? There are a number of excuses that can be made but the fact is it looks like Obama is involved in typical Chicago style politics. He is not Hope and Change…

    I am so happy whenever I read someone else realizes these two lie. They feel they are owed the whitehouse and even more so they are lieing to get there. I can’t stomach either one of them. I would love to know the big change they plan on doing and what his plans really are I have heard nothing but beating around the bush. There is nothing anyone can do for years to come after what Bush has done.

    What is it that Obama and his wife who has never been a proud american till now because of course what she really meant was playing the black card and a black running for president and he is not the first it is not historic if I recall Jessie Jackson was running.

    wow what a stretch, talk about conjuring up something just to breath the hatred you have in. Any one with any intelligence wouldn’t even consider this a lie. In fact I’d venture to say you’re a liar for making this article seem like its anything valid. Maybe you should try to be a little more intelligent in your fallacies next time. Maybe someone will listen to what you saying. This web site is a joke. LOL!!!!

  7. Big Dog says:

    Care to point out the areas that are a stretch? You are a typical Obama bot, call names and try to discredit to protect the messiah. Not going to work here. The only joke is Obama and his supporters.

    Just like Obambi, you guys try to frame the argument to keep heat off the slug.
