Michelle Obama's Desperate Plea For Votes
breitbart.com ^ | 10/20/12

Posted on 10/20/2012 12:38:13 PM PDT by Justaham

Just 18 days from election day, the Obama campaign is beginning the final push for votes in the most critical "fire wall" swing states on their electoral map. To that end, First Lady Michelle Obama gave a rousing and impassioned speech in Racine, WI last night to a fervent and committed crowd of core supporters.

The speech, and the First Lady's delivery, was at times shrill and desperate as false straw man after false straw man was hoisted up before the devoted crowd only to be struck down by Mrs. Obama with passionate force. "Don't let anybody talk down your country!" she implored the crowd, not specifically citing any example of how her husband's opponents have done such a thing.

Instead of just focusing on the positive and personal traits of her husband, Mrs. Obama spent most of the 34 minute sermon on policy issues.

Count the hysterical straw men Mrs. Obama dwells on when she wades into policy: From taxation "teachers and firefighters should not pay higher tax rates than millionaires and billionaires, not in America," to deficit spending "we know good and well that cutting Sesame Street is no way to balance the budget," to health care, "we believe in an America where no one goes broke because someone gets sick," to pabulum that is not related to any specific policy but sounds a lot like socialism "we believe in an America where no one loses their home just because someone lost a job."

And she sounds like she’s preaching to 1st graders. She kept saying, “Do you hear me?” “Do you understand me?”

The CEO of Sesame Street got paid $684,144 in 2009, the most recent year numbers could be found.

Someone tell me how outrageous that amount is for a single program on PBS!!!

If Michelle is fighting to win over Racine their goose must really be cooked. (At least it is close enough for her to hotfoot it back to Chicago.)

How would she get 34 minutes of sermon out of "just focusing on the positive" traits of her husband?

False premises and accusations.

Firefighter and police men do NOT pay at higher tax rates than billionaires and millionaires. And Warren Buffet does NOT pay taxes at a lesser rate than his secretary.

This misinformation should have been challenged when it was first put forth. Anyone who believes these lies is simply clueless to the tax code and the difference in impact of taxes on the various forms of business.

Take Buffet for example. His public corporation paid a 30% corporate tax rate. Rather than collect that tax from each individual stockholder, the corporation pays it before distribution. Any dividends received would either be taxed as ordinary income or at 15% based on whether they were short or long term holdings.

If Buffet’s company was a sole proprietorship, he would pay his taxes at the top individual rate and the money left over after taxes would be his to spend however he wished without an additional 15% tax.

An individual who owns stock in a Chapter C Corporation has already paid his share of taxes at the corporate rate. When they receive dividends, they are actually being “double taxed”.

In addition, Buffet keeps his salary comparatively low at $100,000 salary and director’s fees from several boards at a total of around $75,000. He pays the same % as his Secretary for payroll taxes. His actual income tax rate is determined by the same code as everyone else including his secretary.

Buffet and synchopants ignore that the corporate tax paid is part of his taxes as one of the owners of the corporation.

Michelle, if you have been on Welfare for 24 months, you can’t vote in ANY ELECTION. If you are paying at least state taxes you can’t vote in ANY ELECTION. Instead of telling people what they can eat, you should be helping people get off welfare so they can make choices....your home town is riddled with welfare fraud....take your bully pulpit out of the White House and onto the streets of Chicago, Ill. I am tired of working to pay for your vacations...please just go away.

Was she not the one who was for the first time in her adult life proud of this country a mere 4 years ago? And why did she tell us about all the student loans “she” had to repay if as she says here her dad took out those loans? More fantasy!

"And she sounds like she’s preaching to 1st graders. She kept saying, “Do you hear me?” “Do you understand me?”

I know! It reminds me of the movie Rush Hour when Chris Tucker meets Jackie Chan at the airport and thinks maybe Jackie Chan can't understand him so it speaks loudly:

"DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH?"

That Illinois prison might help house the First Grifters after a very necessary trial for corruption.

"DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE CRIMES YOU HAVE COMMITTED?"

"HAVE YOU BEEN READ YOUR MIRANDA RIGHTS?"

For those reasons alone, I'll break my self-imposed rule and listen to her.

Serves her right for lying. SHE’S WORKED HARD? At WHAT?
