Michelle Obama

I know that it has been a couple of days since I have blogged, but, I had to contain myself until the Democratic Convention started. I am, as I type, listening to the introductions for Michelle Obama.

Her mom says that she hopes that America gets to know the girl that they raised. We have. She is a hypocrite. She is supposed to be part of community outreach for the hospital that she is being paid by. This is the same hospital that turns people away if they do not have private health insurance.

Alright, here we go. Michelle Obama is talking about how the USA should be a place where people who are willing to work should be able to realize their dreams. But, with Barack's tax plan of re-distributing wealth will keep people dependent on the Welfare system who are not willing to go to work. People who don't work because they will actually lose money.

She actually mentioned the military. The very same people who Obama refused to talk to while he was in Iraq. He did not talk to anyone who wasn't in charge. He rushed through, past the men and women who fight for this country and only spoke to people with high rank. He refused to go and see the men and women at the hospital in Germany because the Pentagon would not allow his cameras. He was told he could visit, but no cameras were allowed. He refused to go. Then she went on to say that Obama has worked in the Senate to ensure that the troops come home, not only with medals and parades, but with good jobs and benefits. Obama hasn't done a thing in the Senate. He has spent most of his time on the campaign trail.

She also said that they will work towards getting health care available for all Americans. Last time I looked, health care was available for all Americans. What they want is socialized medicine. It doesn't work where ever it is tried. Look at Great Britain. Look at Canada. The people in these countries that can afford it, try and come to the USA to get their health care. Why can't people get that through their skulls?

I actually watched this speech on CNN. First of all, the commentaries are going on through the closing prayer. Bad move. Then they are talking about how the Obamas want us to know them. They feel like the American people do not know them. Well, guess what. America would know the Obamas if they were open to letting people find out about what they have done in their past. They are only telling us what they want us to know. They don't want us to know everything. They don't want us to know how Barack Obama worked hand in hand with Bill Ayers for five years. Or, how they sat the church in which Rev. Wright preached his anti-American sermons from the pulpit for 20 yrs. They don't want us to know that kind of stuff.

I think I have babbled on long enough for now. I am sure there will be other things this week that will get my blood boiling.
