First lady Michelle Obama used her commencement address to a local charter school to take on critics of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, placing herself squarely in the debate over the nominee to the Supreme Court.
Obama compared her own experiences to those of Sotomayor, recalling the "voices of people sowing seeds of doubt" who questioned whether she and people with similar backgrounds were ready.
"Judge Sotomayor is more than ready. I was more than ready, and Barack Obama is certainly more than ready, Obama said.
Obama likened the feeling she had as a high school graduate with Princeton in her future to Sotomayor's experience attending Princeton, as well.
"When she arrived as a freshman, she said she felt like a visitor landing in a foreign county," Obama said. "She was too embarrassed to ask questions."

What were you ready for Michelle? For the Taxpayers to pay for your Date Nights?
I think this e-mail is overly generous. It leaves out a third possibility that I think is very likely. They read that literature and understood it and simply ignore it because it is inconvenient. The ends justifies the means.
More than ready to implement their long-held racist ideology.
In advance for the June 6th D-Day anniversary, Barack told President Sarkozy that we need “French Collaboration” on subjects such as GloBull Warming. My what a “poor choice of words”.
If the French put up all the white flags they have, Glo-bull warming would stop!!!

For what, Michelle? New $600 sneakers?
These people don't know the difference between "normal" feelings and feelings that they attribute to being "different."
There were three times the number of people on my college campus as the population of the town I came from. I was scared! It's normal!
Ironically, one of the first new friends I made was a Mexican from the Rio Grande Valley! I guess it says more about the differences between people from the Northeast and people from Texas.
Thank you for posting your response. I say similar things but can not explain it as well to the degree you have.
As to the people who know better concerning the law not speaking up, I think they see the reaction to people who do and are intimidated.
Being called a racist bigot by people who don’t know better but have the power to make your life miserable gets old fast.
Ugly goes all the way to the bone,
Ugly goes all the way to the bone, and guess we should add stupid also.
Michelle, please explain to the rest of us how you procure a $300k no show job.
That would really give us an idea as to your “depth of experiences” that make a person such as you qualified for making decisions for the rest of us.
What percentage of white Americans get to attend a university like Princeton? Am I supposed to shed a tear for her struggles? Go write a book, MO. Title it “My Struggle!”
