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...

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.
