Michelle Obama spoke tonight. This in itself is nothing new. She has transformed herself into a likeable first lady and she will try to help President Obama in his task to win a second term. She had a great message and a great agenda. She is a great advocate of health care reform. More importantly Michelle Obama has increased her visibility as an ambassador for the President.
The newscasters and pundants are comparing Michelle to Ann Romney. To me it is no comparison between the two, both come from divergent backgrounds. One black, one white. Both are passionate about their message and their husbands. You've got to give them both credit for that. They are both strong women. They do have much in common. They have simular missions, both care about their families. But that is where the comparisons end. In reality Democrats and Republicans have different agendas.
Michelle Obama stands for everything that our Government can do to help Americans in need. I write this in anticipation of Michelle Obama's speech. She is not from the upper crust. She does not live as the rich may live. She was literally raised in the in humble beginning. She works hard and look where she is today.
Michelle spoke about values, what it means to be providers for the family. She spoke about basic American values. You work hard, you're committed, you will succeed in this world. She talked about gratitude and humanity, values that define who we are. Michelle said “Being president dosen't change who you are. It reveals who you are”. Barack Obama said Michelle lived this realization. We literally witnessed the total transformation of Michelle.
Four years in the White House has allowed her to see what the rigors of the Presidency can do by bringing out the best in it's inhabitants. In this case Barack and Michelle. The Obamas believed not in how much money you make, but the difference you make in someones life.
This sums it up… “My most important role is being a mom”.. Michelle Obama
