Looking for a wedge

The Bushists will be trying to find a way to muddy up Michelle Obama's wonderful speech last night. Here's a first attempt from Leslie Sanchez:

Is it the dress or what's in it? Michelle Obama covered the key milestones but the image of her in a cocktail dress left us wondering.
Cocktail dress? That's the best bullshit you can fling against the wall? Seriously, if that's a cocktail dress, you're not getting invited to the good parties. Too much boorish behavior, I would guess.

The vacuousness of the Bushists is always on display. If they have two brain cells to rub together, they're hiding it. They've got nothing.

Well said.

Michelle was straight out of The West Wing. She's quite a performer; a talented actress. And she raised a lot of questions: she claims to have taken only one job as a high-paid attorney and then went to work as a community organizer. We know that Barack was paid $31,000 a year as an organizer so her pay must have been similar. They paid off expensive college loans from Columbia, Harvard, etc. and still bought a more-than-million dollar house. That's some fancy financial juggling.

Passing herself and Obama off as "like everyone else" is a joke.

How much was the amount of their college loans? How about the amount of financial aid they received as low income students with obvious Ivy-quality talents? I'd guess their loans were pretty small.

Michelle and Barack, unlike John and Cindy, have recent experience in the middle class.

I concur. Well said, loveable liberal. I don't expect anything less from a tool like Leslie Sanchez. As for you sunshine, I can't wait to read your critique of McCain's speech during the upcoming hatefest known as the Republican convention. I'm sure you'll be moved to tears by a multi-millionaire who still pretends like he can relate to the average person!

Have you not been listening to Michelle? She said it took years to pay off those loans in one of her speeches. She also said she didn't qualify at Harvard because of her grades.

If they did have special loans because they were low-income students, what's their problem? Seems to me they've benefited mightily from our system the way it is. Why change it?

Anonymous (why hide -- are you ashamed of your views?) I will be glad to tell you what I think of McCain's speech when he makes it (as if you cared! HA). I promise I won't weep, however. Heck, I didn't even weep at Teddy's speech. Bet you did.

This is a really dumb set of rhetorical questions. You imply that getting something right at least now and then proves perfection! I'm guessing you never grasped that logic stuff.

Given what's missing from your thinking, I have no reason at all to trust your so-called facts.

But, just for yuks, here's some truth: They graduated from college in the early 1980s. They could have taken years to pay off their loans from undergrad and law school (latter no doubt larger) and still have accomplished that before making the big time.

Sunny, you're not doing a very good job here.

Your sarcasm is as pathetic as your trolling, sunshine. Certainly you can squeeze a better comeback out of that empty dome of yours. Or maybe not. LOL
