Michelle Obama came under new criticism Thursday as opponents seized upon remarks the would-be first lady made in a speech in January, when she told a group of students that they need to take advantage of diversity on campus so they can stop feeling justified in your own ignorance Thats America.
Obamas speech at the University of South Carolina hit the radar only this week, after it was circulated and widely viewed on YouTube.
In the speech, she said: We dont like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know, people sitting at different tables you all living in different dorms. I was there.
Youre not talking to each other, taking advantage that youre in this diverse community. Because sometimes its easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your own ignorance. Thats America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?
Conservative critics said Thursday that Obamas latest take on America is another demonstration of her disregard for the country her husband wants to lead.
A statement like that suggests a distorted view of America and what its about, said National Review editor Rich Lowry.

yep and for something no matter how much she resents it, she can never change
Michelle O. needs to take the beam from her own eye before she tries to remove the speck from her white brother’s eye. Why did she and her husband cocoon themselves in their own comfort zone in an all-black church instead of joining an integrated one not focused on the perpetual nursing of real and imagined wounds? Loudmouth, ignorant hypocrite.
I wouldn't want to talk to Mrs. Obama regardless of her diversity status. She's an unpleasant and ignorant person.
You could press her face in dough and make monster cookies.
At the below listed link you will find a great analysis of the political gift that keeps on giving: Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama. It goes far to explain her affirmative action nourished resentments toward her country and most of its citizens. It would appear that she was unable to reconcile her black cultural nationalist/separatist philosophy with her tenure at Princeton, a place for which she was wholly unsuited by dint of preparation and talent. Rather than appreciating the AA slack cut her by the lib Profs, she chose to lash out at what she saw as condescension and maybe some pity from them. Her artificially inflated ego couldnt stand that and she has mutated an enormous shoulder chip ever since.
Now we can only hope that the Barack He who must not be middle named Obama campaign does not muzzle her and deprive the GOP of a priceless asset. Bur from what I hear that is a dangerous proposition for any worker in that campaign. She appears to be as unmanageable and onery as the Hildabeast.
I never thought that I would see a spouse of a presidential candidate who was more of a radical, narcissistic, arrogant, hubristic, self-entitled, and maddening solipsist than Hilary Clinton. To the nations dismay, I think we have found her. She is the loose cannon Benito Mussolini face of liberal fascism that Barack Hussein Obama is so careful to hide. Barack Obama is more practiced at keeping the mask up. But in the liberal Hyde Park ghetto that she lives in Chicago, attending cocktail parties with her coterie of liberal U of C academics, Black South Side DemonRat pols, public sector sinecures, NGO flacks and liberal Sun Times columnists, EVERBODY she knows thinks and feels this way.
