Krauthammer On Michelle Obama's Speech: "I Didn't Buy A Line Of It" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | September 4, 2012 | Ian Schwartz

Posted on 09/04/2012 9:01:47 PM PDT by i88schwartz

Charles Krauthammer: Her whole task was to say why. And her answer was, “Why? Because essentially he's a saint.” Because of his upbringing and because of his emotions and because of his humanity. He does of this because he cares. And the brilliance of it is this: It drained Obama of any, either, ideological motivation, or any having to do with self interest or ambition, which I think is sort of a more plausible explanation.

He's a man highly who is liked and highly ideological. A man of the left who sees the role of the government as ordering, the reorderering, of society in a way to make it more just, as he understands it . And also, extremely ambitious. A self made man who makes himself out of nothing, rises out of nowhere. But all of that, in her telling, doesn’t even exist. The only reason he does what he does, he cares about women, he cares about immigrants, he cares about the poor. He cares about the unemployed. He cares, he cares, he cares.

She told the story of a Gandhi. And, you know, looking at the scene, looking at how he's conducted himself in the presidency and particularly in the campaign, with ruthlessness and determination and drive, it’s not quite a plausible story. I’m sure in the arena, it was a plausible story. I saw the tears, but I’m afraid, I thought it was a great speech, but I didn't buy a line of it.

“A man of the left who sees the role of the government as ordering, the reorderering, of society in a way to make it more just, as he understands it.”

That Is really and truly messed up. This is not about him and it is not his place to ‘reorder society’ as he sees fit. Scary stuff.

I didn’t watch a bit of it. I can’t stand to watch her or her lying anti-American commie dirtbag husband. But they’ll no doubt try to portray Hussein as a victim and dredge up sympathy for him because he’s such a miserable failure. I heard Deval Patrick say we were trying to bully him out of the White House. Cry me a river.

The cynicism and deceit of the Democrats know no bounds.

When last we saw the Obamas speaking of his grandmother, she was a typical white woman who harbored racist feelings towards blacks hanging out at a bus stop, and the grandmother was herself thrown under the bus.

Now she has been resurrected as a soldier in the War on Women, someone who always arrived at work at the bank earlier in the morning than any male colleague and who trained her male colleagues only to see them promoted over her time after time.

Obama’s life story is like those of North Korean leaders, in which incredible fables are invented to serve whatever the political purpose of the moment is.

I knew it was going to be a bunch of lies that were slopped up by the adoring press. She makes me sick how she lies so smoothly. Democrats have this particular evil trait amongs them. Speakers with silver forked tongues.

She’s an effective speaker. Knows how to sell the emotion. But in the end she’s just shilling socialism, which always sounds good on paper. It’s always easier to tell people you’re going to give them “free” stuff.

You’re so right, it is an evil trait and she is particularly good at it. Like her husband, programmed and trained from a young age.

I think she gave energy to her base and all of those targeted fractions. This show is for those groups. The left wing blogs are excited so they believe it. Bill Clinton will help Obama. The libs never give up;
just remember that. They have to show how he Can improve Job creations to be re hired. (big task with job loss nos.) Some of the CNN reporters were smashed with giddiness.

I think my son hit the nail on the head.

He said that during the RNC, the speeches were OK.

BUT... he said the reason he doesn’t like the DNC speeches is because they talk to you as if you were a little kid who is stupid and has to have everything explained to you.

Well, if people aren’t going to be vigilant and extremely protective of their freedom and liberty, than people like the Obama’s are going to come along and take it away from them.

That’s the point we are at now. Thanks a lot Americans for being such stupid, ignorant suckers.

Hilarious when Michelle tried to relate to the working class folks by citing her late father who was employed at a water treatment plant in Chicago. She omitted to indicate that this was a political patronage job doled out to her dad for his work as a Democratic precinct captain.

The platforms don’t mean much but gives the Democrats something to talk about to advance their “war on women” and other “extreme” talking points.

I have to admit I liked it.... but when all is said and done, the future of the country is much more important than whether the President cares about us.

I’m less interested in his sympathy than whether he’s gotten the country turned around. We have a lot of Americans out of work. Now I don’t doubt they have a good family and beautiful kids.

But good intentions are wasted in hard times and to my way of thinking - we definitely cannot afford four more years of Obama’s “good intentions.”

The Democrat’s main strategy has been to carve the electorate into “victimized” groups identified along racial, class, gender, and lifestyle lines. But biggest potential source of votes is women (50 percent of the population).

So now, the fate of Western Civilization rests on the outcome of the “Republican War on Women”, with Republicans carrying the stigma of opposing the “right” or women to free contraception, and free abortions, including 15 year olds with no parental consent required. A recently declared enemy of women is the nine month old “fetus”, who as a consequence has been denied the right to complain about getting scissors stuck through his head.

Humanity? The ‘humanity’ that is on display as he party’s on America’s diem while America slips into depression? Or while he golfs as Americans lsoe hteir homes and jobs? Or whiekl he and his family spend hundreds of millions of dollars flying all over the world and partying while kids go without enough food? That humanity?

You bet it’s scary stuff- this is the ideology of a narcisistic dictator much like Stalin or hitler-0 but you watch how many americans FAIL to realize just how dangerous this man really is- Hitler came o nthe scene and compeltely changed how his society was run- and whiny o is following right in his footsteps- even goign so far as to appeal to the atheists in thsi coutnry while trampling o nthe relgiosu rights of Christians

I think one of the Nazis (Goering?) used to have a line where he said when he heard the word democracy, he reached for his gun. I’m starting to think when I hear the words “they care, or he or she cares,” I reach for a gun. When they squawk about how much they care, it usually means they’re going to tax the bejeesus out of you. In short, they’re announcing what great socialists they are.
