Michelle Obama says change takes time, urges four more years
Reuters ^ | Sept. 4, 2012

Posted on 09/04/2012 8:18:43 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

(Reuters) - First lady Michelle Obama acknowledged on Tuesday that the change her husband Barack Obama sought in his White House campaign four years ago has proven difficult but urged voters to give him another term to fix the weak U.S. economy.

"He reminds me that we are playing a long game here, and that change is hard, and change is slow, and it never happens all at once," she told the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. "But eventually we get there. We always do," she said.

Fast forward to December 2012. The Messiah gets re-elected. Michelle says, “I was wrong, change will take 40 years. Let’s just forget about another election.”

Under The Obammunist, hard work pays off with success for the state.

Thanks for giving me a way to maintain my sanity freepers...watching the DNC was a painful experience tonight, especially her speech. I was so impressed at her attempts to dietify her husband— she is almost as good at that as he is himself. Also glad to see that despite single handily saving the world he is still able to make it home at 6:30pm for dinner every night.

MO said that BO lived the American Dream and she thinks everyone should give back to the people behind them and not shut the door. So what about George Obama? Looks like the door was shut to his hut.

Michelle, channeling her inner-Evita:

Obama is everything, he is the soul, the nerve
The hope and the reality of the American people
We all know that there is only one man in our movement
With his own source of light
We all feed from his light, and that is Obama

I hope the GOP runs some ads reminding people that while many Americans were losing their jobs, what were these two opportunist doing; setting records for vacations taken and rounds of golf in 3 1/2 years. Remind an America that was struggling to make ends meet, how many times this cow was wearing dresses that cost $10,000 or the most expensive accessories she could latch on to.

These two are an embarrassment when compared the the likes of George & Laura Bush, George H and Barbara, Ronald Reagan & Nancy, even the Jimmy Carter and Roslyn. The Obamas have displayed no class, no respect for the office. They are like 6 year-olds let loose in a candy store.

How many more times will we have to put up with her arrogant, boring visits to late night TV, every day time talker. The women is supposed to be a first lady and thinks she's a freaking celebrity.

Don't know how any of you managed to listen to even a word she said. I refuse to recognize either of them and simply will not watch them and turn off the radio or TV, every time they show up.

So what this imbecile is saying is, “No, we haven’t done squat for the past four years except totally scr*w the pooch, but give us four more years and we’ll fix it.”

The truth is that, given four more years, Hussein will only screw things up even worse.

I wonder if the “fact checkers” will point out the rather creative description of his upbringing. I hardly recognized her version of Barack’s childhood.

- Tonight, Michelle Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to deliver an impassioned defense of her incompetent husband. It didn’t focus on his record. It focused on his feelings.

I don’t get it. The ONE said he’d stop the rise of the seas and heal the planet. This “it takes time” is BS.

Okay, even if he got a second term, that’s only eight years. He said he’s cut the deficit in half.

So, even by his own logic (sorry, this is satire) he’s done nothing in four years but will in four more if he has the time?

Yeah, right.

In 2008, Barack Obama lied to black voters when he told them that his parents got together because someone marched at Selma even though his mama gave birth to him years before that event and his parents’ marriage was split up.

Why not? Chicago Democrats have already had 70 years over absolute power over the city and the only "change" they've produced is record high crime rates and corruption.

I thought it was a "boring" outfit that should be worn during "a hospital visit" and not to a speech for the world. Hint: Princess Kate Middleton.

Charles Krauthammer called Michelle Obama’s address a “brilliant speech” but he “didn’t buy a line of it.” He “Doesn’t Want to Hear ‘One More Story About People Walking 8 Miles in the Snow Without Shoes, Uphill, Both Ways’.” I think he nailed it. To hear his comments about Michelle’s speech, watch this:
