CHARLOTTEFirst Lady Michelle Obama never once mentioned Mitt Romney's name. But in her speech before the Democratic National Convention speech Monday night, she offered a dramatic contrast between her husband, Barack Obama, and his Republican opponent, insisting he understands the struggles of average Americans because he's lived through those tough times, too.
"Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it, and he wants everyone in this country to have that same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we're from, or what we look like, or who we love," Michelle Obama said. "He believes that when you've worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed."

Hey thunder butt, ya you... Tell Jug ears to allow the american dream to live in would ya? He might have “lived it” but my kids have just started to understand it while Jug ears is KILLING it.
Why do all of these speakers say they want the American dream no matter who you love? What are they saying? That unless we have homosexual marriage, that homosexuals won’t achieve the American dream??? What the heck????
Please tell me when he’s worked hard OR done well!
Thte latest hooey sloganeering from the Liar-in-Chief’s propaganda machine.
Hussein has always substituted talk for action; the problem for him is that now everyone knows it.
He might be “living the dream” but I’m living the nightmare.
He sure has. He’s our affirmative action president.
What hard times has Obama had compared to many of us?
He was raised in an upper class household. He was raised largely by his grandparents. His grandmother was a vice president of the Bank of Hawaii. He attended the most exclusive private high school in Hawaii. He attended Ivy League universities. Exactly what major struggles has he had in life?????????
....Affirmative Action for Everyone.
like the saying
You are Special~Just like Everyone else
When will it be changed to: 'Life, Liberty and Affirmative Action...?
His idea of the American Dream has been to freeload off others. For four years, he has been plundering and pillaging the American taxpayer to finance his lavish lifestyle.
Sorry, but for most hardworking citizens, this is not the American dream.
One man’s dream is another man’s nightmare. We’ll see how the vast majority of Americans define it in 62 days, 1 hour, 18 minutes, 53 seconds. I predict the verdict will be nightmare by a landslide!
I think its the Kenyan dream really.
I can’t stomach hussein’s “dreams” and America cannot afford them. The “dreams from his father” as 2016 points out are not American dreams.
Barry’s “american dream”, our nightmare.
......Barack knows the American dream because hes lived it....
Oh really, Michelle?
He’s lived a very privileged life.
We can’t even get his college transcripts, admission records, and thesis..probably an F student, and got in on foreign Aid
it is below the intellectual level of a conservative to besmirch the physical attributes of our opponents....nEVER stoop to their level.
He’s “living the American dream”, that is why we must use confiscatory taxes to punish the successful because Old Money resents New Money.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!my question for 4 years....no answers.
The American Dream is not just for public sector union jobs.
For her ignorant target audience..it was a good speech.
I spent a lot of time thowing my house shoes at the tv.
I heard part of Harry Reid’s speech on the radio on the way home. That man lies so much I couldn’t take it.
I really think it is important to listen to the opposing side. But I won’t make it thru this whole convention.
I want to...but... I... just... can’t
The Obamas’ idea of the American dream is the Bizarro version, unrecognizable to regular, hard working, patriotic Americans:
Everything is handed to them by the government and paid for by real taxpayers.
Their way is paved by Affirmative Action.
They are accustomed to receiving favored treatment because of their black skin.
They are held to lower standards than the norm because they are black skinned.
They are given “credit” for meaningless “life experience” in order to pad their records.
Their heads are pumped full of politically correct mush to build false self esteem.
They are protected from criticism and the rigors of a normal life by their black skin.
Anyone who criticizes them or expects them to actually earn their way in life is brutally attacked as a racist.
And as they stand there looking down on the people and the country who gave them everything they could ask for, they don’t even have the class and grace to hide their hate and disdain for America and the Americans who made their fantastic success possible.
They are both nothing more than arrogant, incompetent, parasitic grifters.
In the 1960s, NASA's in-house motto was that "Apollo will be judged on its accomplishments, not its intentions". This same standard should be brought to bear on the White House this election year.
He might be living the dream but Im living the nightmare.
Bull Squeeze! He hasn’t worked a day in his useless life!
Ø might be living the dream but we're enduring the nightmare.
Actually he hasn't. He's just a hideous parasite sucking the life-blood out of others who are living the American dream.
I thought he said he didn't build that!!!!
Michelle Obummer: Barack knows the American Wet Dream because hes lived it
I've read scores of stories about Mr. Romney and his family PERSONALLY helping many people in dire need. I have not read ONE SINGLE story of Obastard giving the gift of himself to anybody in need.
I did’t call her what I really thought of her.
Deal with it.
He knows the muslim dream of moving in and seizing the land. Very traditional thing.
You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.
Poorly veiled code-speak for more Welfare and hand-outs for Holders people
Yeah...what he said.
Watch Charles Krauthammer’s evaluation of Michelle’s speech. Even though he did not go into Zer0’s anti-Christian bias, he did take to task the speech. God used Krauthammer:
If Michelle wanted to fire up the base and stoke the fires of Obama’s Cult of Personality, she succeeded.....but frankly most of the centrists and undecideds are thinking, “How the #*%$ are they just like us?”
I keep thinking.... if they are a middle class family, then why the hard sell?
Methinks Michelle doth protest too much!
HAHAHAHAHAHAH Yea right, every one in America aims to be get a job as a low paying community organizer, and an affirmative action recipient that never worked a day in his life. The Obama’s are hysterical with their BS
Mitt Romney says, send this woman on a prolonged national speaking tour. I need all the help I can get.
