Michelle Obama Searches for an Identity in Senegal ("We are you. We are just like you.")
American Thinker ^ | 06/28/2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Michelle Obama is first lady of the United States of America and yet it seems that she's searching high and low for an identity - desperate for a place to fit in.

It started after 15-year-old schoolgirl Hadiya Pendleton of Chicago was shot dead standing in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park talking with friends. Michelle Obama rushed to Chicago to attend the girl's funeral, had her parents Cleo and Nate sitting in the Special People Sky Box with her at the State of the Union, and then told Hadiya's story when pushing gun control at a conference on youth violence hosted by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

It was there that Mrs. Obama said, "Hadiya's family was just like my family. Hadiya Pendleton was me. And I was her."

Just recently, on a trip to the Emerald Isle, while attending a special Riverdance performance at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin, Michelle Obama again told an audience full of students, this time from Moneygall, that "It's good to be home." Then she identified with schoolchildren, some of whom had been practically scolded a day earlier by the President for going to Catholic school, saying, "We are you. We are just like you."

We already know that it's a long way from Piccadilly to Tipperary, but come on people, it's even further from Chicago to Dublin, and so what was Michelle Obama talking about? Either the woman is in a perpetual identity crisis, or she is majorly confused. We're talking about Irish schoolchildren here. We'll give her a pass on Hadiya in Chicago, but Ireland?

Now she's in sub-Saharan Africa. Speaking in Dakar, Senegal at the Martin Luther King Middle School, again to schoolchildren, frustrated, lost without a true home and identity, Michelle Obama compared her background to that of poverty-stricken Senegalese children.

Michelle Obama Searches for an Identity in Senegal

If her $100 Million trip takes her to kenya maybe she can find out for us who Hussein is too.

Just like those poor wretches in Sengal...She had to suffer with a measley $300K/year job (gotten under the auspices of her husband being a State Senator) with the Illinois University Hospital to convince penniless voters to use the welfare county hospitals. She feels their pain there in Senegal..

told Hadiya's story when pushing gun control

Hellooo? Anybody home?
Moochelle? Chicago? Rahm Emmanuel? Gun control?

I doubt this woman is even awake.

You forgot to mention that job was pretty much a no show job in which she rarely worked more than a few days a week

Glad you’ve found a new home, Moochelle. Be sure to write occasionally and let us know how things are going in Senegal. [P.S.: stay there and we won’t demand a refund for the tens of millions you have bilked from taxpayers for your extravagant lifestyle.]

In every instance when I’ve talked with 1st generation African immigrants about their view on American blacks - and I’ve often done this - there is either an awkward, embarrassed request that they’d “rather not talk about that”, or a sad description of what they consider to be the loss of humanity’s nobler virtues.

We are just like you except we live in a civilized western country, live in a rent free mega mansion, eat lobster, have Wed martini night and spend $100 million on vacations to third world chitholes like Senegal. :-)

She isn’t my “first lady” nor is her husband my “president.” These people make me sick to my stomach.

When will Madam Race-Baiter also travel to Uganda to address "the poor and downtrodden" at Idi Amin High??

I wonder if Senegal has their own human rights hero they can name a school after.

OK, *civil rights*, i stand corrected. Do they? Or must they import names from the USA like Martin Luther King ( or God forbid -— Al Sharpton )?

"It was there that Mrs. Obama said, "Hadiya's family was just like my family. Hadiya Pendleton was me. And I was her."

"He say I know you, you know me

One thing I can tell you is

You got to be free

Come together, right now

Over me"

Michelle channeling the Beatles....sit down, Michelle. Be quiet, the adults are talking.

This how a libtard thinks when she hates and is ashamed of her own country
