Since I first became aware of Barack and Michelle Obama, I have heard them make disparaging, and often, unfounded remarks about ANYONE or any GROUP who opposes their ideas or ideals. They don't listen to anyone who isn't from their Leftist or Academic side of life. [as if theirs a difference there!] And they never talk to anyone who doesn't agree with them. It's been a problem since he took the WH over.
But in giving the Commencement Speech at Eastern Kentucky University today, Michelle suggested that the students find someone with different political beliefs, and talk to them.
Maybe what she meant wasn't talk TO someone, but talk DOWN to them. That being their usual M/O.
lady Michelle Obama urged Eastern Kentucky University graduates on
Saturday night to reach out to people with different political beliefs,
saying the country would benefit from the conversations.
"If you're a Democrat, spend some time talking to a Republican," Mrs.
Obama told about 600 education, business and technology graduates at the
third and final commencement ceremony of the day. "And if you're a
Republican, have a chat with a Democrat. Maybe you'll find some common
ground, maybe you won't."
The first lady suggested that they visit senior centers to benefit from
the experiences of people with plenty of "life experience under their
belts." She also pointed them to religious congregations different than
their own, saying they might hear something in a sermon "that stays with
you." And she predicted they would learn something if they reached out
"with an open mind and an open heart."
"And goodness knows, we need more of that," she said. "Because we know
what happens when we only talk to people who think like we do. We just
get stuck in our ways."
So Michelle Obama was telling someone else to NOT get stuck in their ways. That my friends, is RICH!.
The White House said the first lady was drawn to EKU as part of her
initiative to support veterans and military families. EKU has gained
national recognition for its efforts to help veterans advance their
education, including its Veterans Success Center, which provides
one-stop-assistance for advising, counseling and job placement services.
A campus group took potshots at Obama administration policies ahead of
Mrs. Obama's visit, handing out fliers bemoaning the challenging job
prospects for the new graduates.
"Good luck landing your first job," said the flier from the EKU chapter
of Young Americans for Liberty. "Only 47 percent of you will be able to
find a job in your preferred field, so I hope you're still on good terms
with your parents."
Yeah, she's really worried about veterans, or people having trouble finding jobs. I'm guessing she got all that from her husband. He's clearly been working his ASS off to help veterans and people without jobs since he got int office.
These clowns are such hypocrites, that it's hard to see how they themselves DON'T see it.
