Michelle Obama Speech

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

Sign Petition To Stop Fox News Smears Against Obama

Moveon.Org, a political action organization has initiated a petition campaign against Fox New network, in it ongoing slander against Barack Obama and his famil. Many believe the attacks are racially motivated. When a political networks takes sides and slander the good name of politicians, suddenly it not all fair in politics; the attacks become personal and hurtful.

It is appalling and disheartening that a mainstream news organization in America, Fox New, is allowed to blatantly smear a candidate of color, such as Barack Obama. The attacks seem to be racially motivated and Fox On air personality continue to do all they can to spread fear and distrust of Barack Obama. It is simply not right. Talk about the issues. Talk about what the candidates stand for on the issues. But there is absolutely no reason to inject personal attacks against the candidate.

It is imperative no matter what your political representation that Fox News and the Republicans play fair; that is to not resorts to personal attacks, false rumors and other tactics to smear a legitimate presidential candidate. For too long we have engaged in the politics of hate and race baiting. If you feel strongly that Fox News is way out of line, hit them where it will hurt in their pocket book, by encouraging advertisers to remove their ads from the Fox network, until Fox and its announcers cease from the politics of fear and misinformation.
