Skip to comments.Fact Check: First Lady's False Fairy Tale of Struggle
Posted on 09/05/2012 1:25:34 PM PDT by justlittleoleme
First Lady Michelle Obamas pitch to voters last night relied on the premise that she and her husband understand what it is to struggle to make ends meet. She spoke movingly about their early years--about how a young Barack Obama drove a car that was rusted out" and found his furniture in a dumpster, how they both came from families that had to scrape by. Her fairy tale--however well-delivered--was one great, big, colorful lie.
Both Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama began their adult lives with a leg up on the rest of America. They attended elite schools: Michelle went to Whitney Young, the public magnet school for Chicagos upper class, while Barack attended Punahou, the private prep school for the top stratum of Hawaiian society. They were accepted to Ivy League schools despite undistinguished credentials, and both attended Harvard Law School.

FB and youtube the pictures...they are not ghetto.
It’s “SHTRUGGLE”. Sorry but I’m a SHTICKLER for proper grammar!
There is nothing about mac addy and moooooochele that is truthful, nothing.
Shtop Mocking Moochele!
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, doesnt 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, its not quite a plausible story. Im sure in the arena, it was a plausible story. I saw the tears, but Im afraid, I thought it was a great speech, but I didn't buy a line of it.
How much did 0bammy inherit from his typical white grammar?
They are just making up for the poor years.
The comments under the article are better than the article. Love it!
. . . and both had to surrender their law licenses.
Yep, not just your ordinary attorneys either.
This is the same strategy Mr. and Mrs. Great Leader used to woo the international Olympic committee. If this is all they have, they have fumes.
First Lady’s False Fairy Tale of Struggle,
Oh come on its no worse than Ann Romney’s False Fairy Tale of Struggle,
In fact it’s not as far fetched...
Ann wins this fakery...
I didn’t know Barry as senator got Mooch’s hospital a million dollar grant, that her salary then tripled to 300K, and that her job was to shunt uninsured patients off on neighborhood clinics.
I really want to see these two grifting hypocrites evicted this November.
They’re in it for themselves. They lie about everything. They’re as bad as the Clintons.
These last four years have been a nightmare.
Moochelle claimed that she could see through the door. Anyone living in the rust belt knows that an old Chevy will rust through the bottom WAY before it rusts through the side of the car.
Hawaii has the #1 by far consumption of Spam in the US. That alone would make lunch at Punahou a struggle...
I see she’s back to telling tall tales about their “crushing” student loan debts - wonder if anyone in the media will get curious this time around?
1) If you and Bambi were really as middle class as you claim, you would have gotten tons of aid at Ivy League schools such as Columbia and Princeton. Besides, college tuition was nowhere near as high in the early 1980s, so where did you get such high bills?
2) Did you have any scholarships and if so, from where? Were they academic?
3) Why, if you had so much debt, was there never any student loan interest deductions on your tax returns?
4) If you did go into thousands of dollars of debt to get your law degree at Harvard, why did you suddenly give up you license only four years later?
He got him some "cred in da hood."
Sure enough, they were all light and love about it, no snarky fault-finding with Moo-chelle's speech. That's the state of our media today.
