Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Searches for an Identity in Senegal ("We are you. We are just like you.")
Posted on 06/28/2013 6:51:17 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
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.

If her $100 Million trip takes her to kenya maybe she can find out for us who Hussein is too.
I didn’t see any kids with an ass wide as 2 ax handles and
with an entourage.
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..
Hellooo? Anybody home?
Moochelle? Chicago? Rahm Emmanuel? Gun control?
I doubt this woman is even awake.
With an a** like hers, its tough to fit in anywhere!
Particularly in a seat in coach with the rest of us tax paying saps.
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
Mrs. Obama said, “Hadiya’s family was just like my family. Hadiya Pendleton was me. And I was her.”
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.]
And I believe has not be filled since she left for the White House.
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.
Moochelle is right;They ALL went to Princeton as well??????
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??
RE: Speaking in Dakar, Senegal at the Martin Luther King Middle School...
I wonder if Senegal has their own human rights hero they can name a school after.
You mean "civil rights," right? ;-)
*I* have a Dream...that the year is 1962 again.
I am she as you are me,
And we are all together
I am the Wookie
