Posted on 03/22/2014 5:51:15 AM PDT by maggief
BEIJING On a visit that was supposed to be nonpolitical, Michelle Obama delivered an unmistakable message to the Chinese on Saturday, saying in a speech here that freedom of speech, particularly on the Internet and in the news media, provided the foundation for a vibrant society.
On the second day of a weeklong trip to China with her two daughters and her mother, Mrs. Obama spoke to an audience of Americans and Chinese at Peking University, and in the midst of an appeal for more American students to study abroad, she also talked of the value for people of hearing all sides of every argument.
My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our media and our fellow citizens, she said. And its not always easy, but we wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.

She is free to shut up.
Maybe she should ask her hubby why he is giving our control of the internet away.
Any bets that she had to get permission from the Chinese govt. to say this?
My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our fellow citizens,
but we don’t even pay it any notice...
My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism...”
Tell that to the Tea Party groups Lois Lerner was molesting you stupid broad.
The only thing the media in the US ask the Clown family is what they had for dinner or what are their picks for the BB Tourney.
Real questions are forbidden and truth telling about the Clown family gets you to having to apologize and admit you stink as a reporter.
All questioning must be submitted though press secretary Jay Carney for review and approval.
The Chinese are probably interested in learning more from the Obamas about media suppression tactics that can be applied against their own people. They must be fascinated by how effective the supposed “most transparent administration in history” has been in controlling and intimidating the press. The Chinese have an opportunity to watch the masters in action.
Dear China...You mowed down 1000 people in the square and we said "bad boy, bad boy"....and we hid under a rock.
You have babies working in factories, limit women to one baby. The rest must die. You are communists through and through.
Free speech....big whoop....you can talk your head off but are told exactly what to do by your government...and have nothing.
But be proud China....America is becoming more and more like you thanks to my husband and his boot lickers.
Is this photo shopped? Looks like she needs butt lipo too.
NYT = State Run Media
that’s rich, she doesn’t believe what she is preaching, she is just trying to pix off the Chinese
Is this from The Onion?
“Michelle Obama Speaks Out”
She doesn’t speaks out,
but just reads a text, prepared by someone else, on a teleprompter.
Just like that sissy clown she calls “husband”.
Such a couple of nullissime nobodies.
The New York Slimes, happy to cover for the extravagant spending by Team BO.
HEY Slimes, if Freedom of Speech is so great, and Obama CARES do much about it, why are they using the IRS to hinder conservative political speech????
Is that Photoshopped or is her caboose really in the next Chinese province?
Wailing to the world.
Good lord, she has a big hump on her butt
Ironic considering the obama handlers would like to treat the Tea Party the way the Chinese govt treats Falun Gong
Beijing hotel workers already ‘fed up’ with Obama entourage in 3400-square-foot, $8,350-per-night suite inconveniencing ‘pretty much everyone’ and the first lady’s mother is ‘barking at the staff’
Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother Marian Robinson are staying in a sumptuous presidential suite at a Beijing Westin hotel
Mrs. Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived,’ a hotel staffer said, adding that ‘we can’t wait for this to be over’
Secret Service agents are monopolizing elevators and booting high-paying guests from their rooms to occupy a block of space near the first lady
Both front and back doors of the hotel are blocked off, with Chinese and U.S. security agents screening everyone who enters
Ordinary Chinese describe Mrs. Obama and her family as kind and gracious, but hotel staff are ‘fed up’

bulletproof butt shield?
omg. what is that thang?
I thought I read that there would be no media coverage on her trip, wishful thinking I guess.
I’m sure she has come out against universities that don’t want conservative speakers on campus.
That was shown after it was photo-op’ed, the before shot didn’t fit in the picture.
The sad thing is that she seems to think she represents us. She is not elected, does not speak for us, and when the President is not overseas on a trip and she is not with him she should not be speaking for America in any way. Who planned and approved this multi million dollar bash for granny,the kids and this loudmouth?
I have never seen a picture of this woman that she doesn’t look angry. Every picture on this trip she is beaming with delight. She is home.
Maybe organizing a Maidan-like coup on Pennsylvania Avenue would help.
1. Our media is only allowed free speech as long as it's favorable to Bronco Bama.
2. Free speech on the internet until Bronco gives it to another country and our access will be severely limited.
3. Internet free specch... ha! What a joke! Can you say, "censor"?
Munching on egg rolls and fortune cookies ...
“In Beijing, Michelle Obama Speaks Out for Free Speech”
Bringing standup political comedy to China.
Maybe she should ask why her husband sics the IRS on anyone that disagrees with him in public. That’s not freedom of speech, that’s what the commies do. Why doesn’t she tell us why we don’t have access to BO’s background. I could go on and on.
"In Beijing, Michelle Obama Speaks Out for Free Quiche"
...which makes perfect sense, knowing Mrs. Obama's love of food.
Ms Whateveryournameis, what was your so-called husband doing, and with whom, while our ambassador and his security detail were being murdered by those he agrees with?
she also talked of the value for people of hearing all sides of every argument.
She must be telling them how the IRS works.
At least, one of those kids needs a paternity test.
