First Lady Michelle Obama: Supreme Court at stake in election
ABC OTUS News ^ | April 17, 2012 | Olivier Knox

Posted on 04/17/2012 5:28:56 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday put the Supreme Court at the core of President Barack Obama's argument for reelection, telling supporters that the vote in November could affect Americans' security, freedoms and whether they can "love whomever we choose" -- a reference to the fight over gay and lesbian rights.

"This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light," she said in a speech at a rally in Nashville. "I hope you all are fired up and ready to go."

Her comments came as Washington awaited a ruling from the nine justices on whether her husband's landmark health care law is constitutional. A decision could come in June.

"We cannot forget the impact the Court's decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose," she said in a ringing defense of the president's record. Asked about similar statements in the past, the White House has denied that they reflect any newfound White House support for gay marriage. Kristina Schake, the First Lady's communications director, said Tuesday that it "refers to the importance of the Supreme Court for deciding many issues."

"The President and First Lady firmly believe that gay and lesbian Americans and their families deserve legal protections and the ability to thrive just like any other family," she said.

I wish that was true with Romney as the GOP nominee. Unfortunately, the only way MO could be telling the truth is if she thinks there is a chance her husband will run against a conservative. I hope that is the case.

IT SURE IS! We will either get two more Socialists/Communists who want to destroy this country or we will (she says hopefully) get more Constitutional scholars who will administer the Law, not make it up out of whole cloth. I hope 2008 was absolutely the last time Americans were gullible enough to elect someone who so hates this once great country. He hates our freedom, he hates our affluence, he hates our entrepreneurial spirit, he hates our success, he hates our standing in the world. He wants us at the bottom of the heap because, after all, that's what we Americans deserve, don't we?

The wookie is right....this is about the Supreme Court and the Justices that will be replaced in the next term. If they are Obunghole’s choices, say goodbye to the Constitution.

What’s that about our security? You mean like my right to NOT have to depend on the police for my protection?

Hey Moochelle....You can’t have it both ways here...if a politician’s family is off limits, then members of said family need to keep their mouths shut about politics.

IOW.....STFU or YOU are fair game!

Past performance is the best predictor of future performance. Please explain how Romney’s past actions should lead us to believe he will appoint conservatives.

I don’t have too much confidence that Mittens would appoint real conservatives to the court either. Another reason why we need to focus on electing some more conservatives to the senate.

Unless Newt can pull off a miracle. It makes zero difference whether Obama or Romney is elected President. I just hope that more people will vote for Sarah Palin write in. It has happened in Alaska with a write in maybe we could win a national election on a write in. That would be incredible.

So, if they’re Romney’s choices wouldn’t we also “say goodbye to the Constitution?”

As unappealing as a President Romney is... pResident Obunghole for another term, is the equivalent of the Bubonic Plague.

“This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light”

That’s truly an evil thing to say considering her definition of what is darkness and what is light.

Actually, she’s right. Half of them should be retiring soon and that’ll leave openings for Hussein to fill with his evil doers.

vote in November could affect Americans' security, freedoms

No kidding? That's why I will be at the polls. I am scared to death for our security, freedoms and the next Supreme Court Justices that are chosen. We are so close to losing it all.
