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."

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.

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.
