Future First Lady? Speech Examined, Transcript Available (News/Opinion)
Day 1 of Democratic shmoozefest 08 featured a clear, concise, to the point Michelle Obama who was well prepared for her speech Monday night in front of the Democratic National Convention at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Likely the next First Lady of the United States south-side Michey, dressed conservatively well delivering the juicy liberal burgers that everyone was expecting.
Michelle Obama promised... to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make sure health care is available for every American, to make sure every child in this nation has a world class education all the way from preschool to college, plus an apple pie, a loaf a bread and some magic pixie dust.
The theme of “this time” that popped up toward the conclusion of Mrs. Obama’s speech was disheartening to this die-hard Democrat. Instead of bellowing about our shoe in victory, the theme of “this time” reeked of an anonymous meeting, alcoholics (AA), narco’s(NA), gamblers(GA) or knitters(Wool-A) you take your pick. This time we stopped doubting, this time we listened to our hopes instead of our fears.
Trying to upstage Teddy, would have been a disaster, I mean the guy (Senator Edward Kennedy) only held the floor for seven minute but was still able to work delegates into a heated frenzy.
So, Why then did Mr. Kennedy make his appearance on the first night of the convention where nobody including Michelle Obama could possibly upstage him? Ego? Sass? Kennedy carisima?
The answer is elementary, Kennedy’s appearance and subsequent speech were surely an elaborate ruse by the Democrat Party to draw some of the attention away from the day’s keynote speaker Michelle Obama, who by the way delivered the most believable, heartfelt “god bless you and god bless America” that this reporter has ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
