Posted on 02/17/2008 7:45:14 PM PST by KayEyeDoubleDee
Hugh Hewitt: ...got Fred and Mort next hour, got Larry Kudlow next hour, but I want to start with presidential politics - actually first lady politics - to get you in the mood for this.
You know, Michelle Obama is really kinduva remarkable woman. She's very, very forceful on the stump. She is a, ah, extraordinarily charismatic bundle of energy and intellect.
And, ah, she says interesting things.
Things that make you say, "Huh?"
She talks a lot about change.
But there's a lotta change agents of the twentieth century, like, ya know, Che, Mao, Fidel, Pol Pot - ya know, all sorts of change you don't want.
So where is she on the "change" spectrum - from the people who just want to, ya know, change your shirt to those who want to change natural law?
Well we got a speech from Michelle, ah, Barack from two weeks ago at UCLA - I've been waiting for a time to deconstruct it with you.
And, ah, Michelle Obama - did I say Michelle Barack? - Michelle Obama, and, ah, let's just take a few listens here.
Cut Number One, Michelle from two weeks ago:
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #1:
In 2008, we are still a nation that is too divided. We live in isolation, and because of that isolation, we fear one another.
We don't know our neighbors. We don't talk. We believe that our pain is our own - we don't realize that the struggles and challenges of all of us are the same.
We are too isolated. And we are still a nation that is still too cynical.
We look at it as them and they as opposed to us - we don't engage because we are still too cynical.
Hugh Hewitt: This is the two Americas stuff. Look, I know my neighbors, and I like 'em.
And, and, ah, there've been times when they've needed help, and, ya know, we don't socialize, but they give a call, or we give a call to them - I know my neighbors.
I have a big church community of which I'm a part. I went out with some great church friends last night - people who have known my wife, the fetching Mrs. Hewitt, for 40 years. We went to, ah, down to, Orange County, to the, ah, performing arts center, to hear a great Broadway singer, Faith - I can't remember her last name now - she was great - from Guys and Dolls. We had a great time. Ya know, I know my neighbors, we have community. I don't know what she's talking about.
It gets worse - you know, this whole divided, us/them, two countries, marxist stuff.
Here's Cut Number Two.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #2:
Don't get sick in this country - not here. Americans are in debt not because they live frivolously but because someone got sick. And even with insurance, the deductibles and premiums are so high that people are still putting medication [and ?] treatments on credit cards.
And they can't get out from under.
I could go on and on and on, but his is how we're living, people, in 2008.
And things have gotten progressively worse throughout my lifetime - through Democratic and Republican administrations - it hasn't gotten better for regular folks.
Hugh Hewitt: You know - things have gotten progressively worse, during the greatest economic expansion in history, during the greatest explosion in the availability of technology and education.
What is she talking about? I mean, this is radical stuff.
And it gets worse - Cut Number Three.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #3:
We have lost the understanding that in a democracy, we have a mutual obligation to one another - that we cannot measure our greatness in the society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our greatness by the least of these.
That we have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done - that is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this race who understands that.
That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls - our souls are broken in this nation.
Hugh Hewitt: Lemme tell ya', whenever someone from the government comes to you and says, "We have to fix your soul," be VERY afraid.
Governments cannot fix souls.
In my world view, Christ fixed souls. Other people have different world views, I understand, but no one believes - outside of the hardcore left - that government can fix your soul.
I mean, a higher power, I guess - if you want to be non-denominational about this - might fix your soul. The Father of the universe might fix your soul.
But not government.
Not Barack Obama. Not Michelle Obama. None of it.
Not George Bush, not John McCain, not Mitt Romney - no one can fix your soul.
That's scary stuff.
And it gets worse - Cut Number Four.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #4:
If we can't see ourselves in one another, we will never make those sacrifices.
So I am here right now because I am married to the only person in this race who has a chance at healing this nation.
Hugh Hewitt: Wow. The only person in this race who can heal the nation.
I am - I, I'm a little bit stunned.
Modesty is not, ah, not in, ah, large supply over at Team Obama.
Cut Number Five.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #5:
The first major decision he had to make in his life, after college - "Do I go to Wall Street and make money, or do I work for the people?" - Barack worked as a community organizer in some of the toughest neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago.
Helping young mothers find their voice and their power - folks who had a reason to be cynical because government had forgotten them long ago.
There is no one else in this race who can claim that kind of commitment to people on the ground. No one.
And I would think in a nation like ours, -
Hugh Hewitt: Stop, stop, stop. I'm sorry.
John McCain spent six years in a North Vietnamese prison camp. That's commitment.
Tough neighborhood in [the] south side of Chicago? I'm sure it was. It's not as tough as the Hanoi Hilton.
Mitt Romney spent two and a half years, in France, going door-to-door for his religion. That, that is a tough series of neighborhoods, to go to France, and knock on doors, and say, "I'm a Mormon, I'd like to talk to you." In 1968. Lovely place to be in France.
Don't give me - you know, you go to [the] south side of Chicago and you're a community organizer because you intend to go into politics. And you're building a resume.
Don't give me this stuff. I'm, I mean, this's starting to - time to strip the bark off of this rhetoric.
Cut Number Six.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #6:
Barack, as Oprah said, is one of the most brilliant men you will meet in our lifetime.
Barack is more than ready. He'll be ready today, he'll be ready on day one, he'll be ready in a year from now, five years from now - he is ready.
That is not the question. The question is: What are we ready for?
Wait, wait, wait - because we say we're ready for change, we say we're ready for change, butcha see, change is HARD.
Change will always be hard, and it doesn't happen from the top down.
We do not get universal health care, we don't get better schools because somebody else is in the White House. We get change because folks from the grass roots up decide they are sick and tired of other people telling them how their lives will be - when they decide to roll up their sleeves and work.
And Barack Obama will require you to work.
He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your division, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones, that you push yourselves to be better, and that you engage.
Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual - uninvolved, uninformed...
Hugh Hewitt: Wow!
As, as Dwayne just said, it's beginning to sound like General Zod, ya know, "Bow down before Barack."
One more cut - Cut Number Seven.
MICHELLE OBAMA, CUT #7:
We have young kids all over the world who are looking to this nation, and they are trying to figure out who we are, and what we wanna become.
We have a chance, not just to make history, but we can change the world.
We can change the world - yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can...
Hugh Hewitt: Wow, wow, wow.
So that was your first, ah, taste, of, ah, Michelle Obama rhetoric.
You probably haven't heard that, have you? You probably haven't seen that, did you? You probably didn't know that, could you?
Because the Media hasn't been tellin' ya.
What an all-encompassing, government-expanding, pervasive and soul-changing theory of people.
Coming right back, don't go anywhere...
I don’t think he will either, and even if he does, it won’t matter. Plus, I don’t think McCain has the balls to do it.
We’ll see how they vote come March. Maybe all those voting in dem primaries (that are repubs) will change their minds come their time to vote if hillary is losing. They know the repub primary means nothing to them now so they’re voting in the one that does now.
I’m in NJ. I aleady voted, not that it mattered.
I agree, Clinton is the weaker of the two.
However, I won’t try to convince them either way. They’re smart in this stuff (far more than I am, glad I already voted). They’ll do what is best.
This is so new for me. I’ve never been so conflicted or so concerned about about our country.
Have faith in the country. We will get through this. I still have faith that the American people will reject Obama once he is exposed for what he is.
I’ve always had faith in middle america. Hell,I live in the NE, and as a minority. If we want to talk about minorities, lol.
I have faith that no matter what happens, regardless of our government or POTUS, the real americans won’t allow this country to suck, but it’s still happening. I’m impatient. I also live in the wrong area.
OK, I read a few quotes. She’s a liberal simpleton, nothing more. Dangerous as all liberals are but she ain’t all that. Her hubby is the mesmerizing nationalist. But Pet Rocks were popular for a few months too. 21st Century Americans aren’t quite like 1920’s Germans.
Bingo. You nailed it.
Obama can offer the largest tax cuts, free health care, paid college tuition blah blah blah.
When I look at him, all I see is his vote not to give infants who survived abortion medical support.
He’s no better than Hitler in my eyes. He’s mesmerised the masses the same way Hitler did, while promoting policies to rid the world of those he doesn’t deem worthy to live (the unborn) - the same way Hitler did with the Jews.
What GARBAGE his missus spews talking about helping “the least of these”. Why doesn’t she start with changing her own husband’s murderous, vile policies.
You made me want to look into it a little more -- here's her letter doing just that:
And don't forget all the Party-sponsored "charities" paid for by the taxpayer.
Fortunately, Michelle, dear, there is a manually for it that clearly states that it's "under warantee". Try reading it some time:
Nothing but PR bs.
She wears the strangest outfits.
“we have to measure our greatness by the least of these.”
Coming from the mouth of a woman who is a big wig officer of Planned Parenthood.
thank you for that very useful link.
Billary (of all people) should have realized that race trumps gender.
And to think there are many FReepers who plan to ‘sit this one out’ just to make themselves feel ‘principaled’.
Dang. You got the impression that because the Obama’s are evil, I’d support Judas McCain? No way on God’s green earth.
You know, the last thing I want is for government to try and fix my soul. A recipe for chaos.
one wonders if each repair of the soul comes with a set of shiny marching boots.
Sheesh. I don’t know if she’s been listening to too much Oprah or too much Tom Cruise.
“That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls - our souls are broken in this nation.”
Even Karl Marx recognized that human nature had to be changed prior to the emergence of communism. The new man had to be without selfishnish, willing to work for other men and not himself. This was the objective of socialism, to birth that new man.
Now we Mrs. Obama calling for the very changes that were proposed by Karl Marx.
What do you mean she did “just that”?
the whole letter was about opposing the ban.
A key sentence...
The fact remains, with no provision to protect the health of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned.
So..she is saying the ban is unconstitutional.
She is describing this as a medical procedure.
It is a procedure designed by abortionists specifically to skirt around already present laws.
There is no medical condition that exists where it is necessary to turn a baby into breech position, deliver the 3/4 of the body, stick a hole in the neck and vacuum out the brain.
It would place much less stress on the mother’s health to induce normal delivery or perform a c-section.
This letter only confirms what we already know about Michelle Obama.
“Americas version of Evita Peron. Hey, Mrs. Obama/Peron, dont cry for me....”
Umm, more correctly, another version of Hillary Clinton.
Picture this scenario:
1. Obama wins, holds the White House for 8 years.
2. Towards the end of his presidency, Michelle runs for the Senate in Illinois (heh, do you think she would win?)
3. After B. Hussein leaves office, the junior senator from Illinois makes HER claim to the office....
I mentioned almost the exact same things to some friends a few days ago, and they looked at me like I was crazy!
Barack Hussein Obama is rising to power much the same way that Hitler did!
Pet rocks, lmao!.
“just that” as in published a letter trying to raise funds for the pro-abortionists.
Bob Dylan-Everything Is Broken
Broken lines, broken strings,
Broken threads, broken springs,
Broken idols, broken heads,
People sleeping in broken beds.
Ain’t no use jiving
Ain’t no use joking
Everything is broken.
Broken bottles, broken plates,
Broken switches, broken gates,
Broken dishes, broken parts,
Streets are filled with broken hearts.
Broken words never meant to be spoken,
Everything is broken.
Bridge: Seem like every time you stop and turn around
Something else just hit the ground
Broken cutters, broken saws,
Broken buckles, broken laws,
Broken bodies, broken bones,
Broken voices on broken phones.
Take a deep breath, feel like you’re chokin’,
Everything is broken.
Bridge: Every time you leave and go off someplace
Things fall to pieces in my face
Broken hands on broken ploughs,
Broken treaties, broken vows,
Broken pipes, broken tools,
People bending broken rules.
Hound dog howling, bull frog croaking,
Everything is broken.
Well,very true about affirmative action.It causes the distinct uneasiness that whenever you meet a minority professional,in the back of your mind you wonder”how did he GET that job?”
The corollary to ending affirmative action is to also eliminate mindless discrimination in hiring in FAVOR of whites,a practice that went on for many years in this country.
And while I know Obama and crew are big advovates for affirmative action,the whole policy really got going in 1969 under Republican Richard Nixon and contimued unabated in the Reagan years.
Yes, socialism is destroying the soul of this nation. Until that is fixed by utterly rejecting it those who encourage it will continue to divide this nation until it collapses entirely. Right on, Michelle!
The solution to that is free market capitalism. Simple isn't it?
Your soul will be fixed when you completely renounce conservativism in any form and completely submit yourself to Obama. Thats when they will decide you are fit to live. They are going to change the world. No doubt they have a plan to do just that but we won’t like the result. God help us all.
But a lot of so called conservatives have stated they will vote for him because of McCains CFR stance. The country has gone crazy!
The emperor went to the tailor and said “please repair my trousers sir, I think they are torn”
After a pause to gather his thoughts the tailor replied “ but sir you have no trousers. Perhaps you forgot to put them on”
What's this "WE" bullsh*t?
My soul isn’t broken, but it could use a new fan belt.
Notice how she is dressed and the way she is holding her arms? She and Obama are trying to send a Christlike image of themselves to the people.
It's probably because your Secret Service agents keep shooing them away.
I just can’t help but think most of these “I’ll vote for Obama before McCain” people just have to be plants. I can’t believe my fellow conservatives would actually prefer this over McCain.
Good for you!
I wouldn’t be so sure about that. I believe they are worse today. They have that rock star mentality today.
Tell your friends that they can also listen to it:
There is absolutely no way that Obama can win the presidency in November with stuff like this ready to be exposed. I’m just hoping we can keep a lid on this stuff until the Clintons are relegated to the dustbins.
