I heard today the First Lady Michele Obama will be the Keynote speaker at the DNC. Really? What position does Mrs. Obama hold in the administration? What state does she represent? What political appointment/ post has she held? What business has she led, what books has she written, what is her expertise in job creation, economics, political science, global foreign relations or underwater basket weaving to qualify her to give this speech? I realize the left would like us all to believe that she is the smartest woman on the planet, that she is an expert on nutrition, farming, parenting and anything else that takes her fancy. I realize that many on the left want to promote her to “America’s mom” status but, unlike Barbara Bush, this is not someone you’d go to with questions and concerns, unless you were looking for a lecture on you’re stupidity.
Yes I realize the candidates wife gets to speak at the convention. They usually speak at some time within the convention but not as the opening speaker. She is not qualified for this job any more than her husband is qualified for his job. They couldn’t find a Congressperson to give the key note address. They were obviously looking for a woman to cement the idea that Obama is not waging a war on women (it’s just coincidence that women have been the hardest hit during the recession he hasn’t made a dent in improving) using them as a distraction from his dismal performance so far. Pelosi wouldn’t speak, how about Clare McCaskill or Hillary Clinton (who’s too busy to come to the convention?). Surely there are some bright lights in the female section of the Democratic party? Roseanne Barr is running for something I hear, in collusion with Cindi Sheehan (I think it was, now there’s a ticket, they could corner the bitter/angry/ungrateful vote).
Is Mrs. Obama going to lobby for making the First Lady position a paying job? Will she tell us how proud of America she is, now that we have the economy of a third world country? Is she going to extol the virtues of having to give up movie night to put gas in the car? Is she going to regale us with how lucky we are to be able to pay for those who will not work and those who are here illegally? Will she highlight the trillions of dollars in debt our children and our children’s children get to pay on, in remembrance of our stupidity in voting for her husband? What exactly will she highlight? The failing cities, failing auto companies, newspapers, banks and the rest of those who benefited from the stimulus that haven’t seen a turn around? What jobs will she be highlighting? Pool Boy, Pole Dancer, Fast Food clerk, oh wait those are private jobs. She would have to highlight the rise in government workers then. Of course how those are sustainable is beyond me, but after all you didn’t build anything, it all belongs to the government. They just let you work 60 hours a week, so you will have a sense of accomplishment. “All money is the government’s money” says the queen.
I will admit that I am not a fan of the Obamas. I don’t think either of them is qualified to run for dog catcher in this country. Not because they’re not smart or educated or because of their political affiliations. They’re not qualified because of their opinions about this country. They aren’t proud of it, they don’t like it, they don’t understand it and they don’t support it. They want to “remake” it. If they want to remake a country go to Africa (not because of their race but because in Africa they change governments faster than Chris Matthews changes the pitch of his screeching). They can create a country in their own image. Something to be proud of. They can leave the rest of us and our burgers and fries, our NASCAR, our fishing and hunting and our Bible reading alone.
We are after all, a country of rubes who must be educated by the Obamas of the world. We must be civilized by those who seek to kill babies who survive abortion attempts, by those who’s stated goal is our subjugation or our death, by those who think that old people deserve to suffer and die to make room for those who take, take, take. We are schooled by those who steal our money, tax and spend us into the poor house and then expect us to raise their salaries in gratitude. We are set upon by big labor thugs and special interest goons who try to intimidate us at the polls and by the media who rape and pillage the news to prop up tin plated dictators with delusions of relevancy. College professors fill the heads of young skulls full of mush with dreams of a utopian nirvana where everything is provided by the government and no one is able to achieve more than anyone else. A paradise of mediocrity. How dare we disagree? How dare we want more than that? How dare we tell the truth?
The economy stinks, people are out of work, out of time and out of money. Big corporations are bankrupting the country, sending jobs overseas and overpaying executives (and politicians). Small business is drowning in a sea of regulation. Tax laws are so complex that the average person can’t even begin to understand them. Government is not the solver of our problems, IT IS OUR PROBLEM. We need less government intervention in our lives and more personal freedom.
If Mrs. Obama wants to talk about something maybe she should entertain some of those ideas. Or maybe she’ll put on a blond wig and channel Dolly Parton. It could happen……..when pigs fly.
