I know I’m a bit late posting about this but I actually missed the first night of the Democratic National Convention on tv two nights ago. After seeing everyone raving about Michelle Obama’s speech on my twitter timeline I just had to check it out. I’m really glad I did.
First off Michelle looked absolutely amazing. I loved her dress.
Second what I loved most about her speech is that there was no immature mud-slinging or bashing that we’ve come to expect from the opposing party. Michelle got straight to heart what concerns the majority of Americans today (at least in my opinion), their everyday lives.
Politicians have been spending way to much time discussing minor issues that shouldn’t even be relevant. What the people are concerned with first and foremost is being able to make a decent life for themselves and their family members. There are plenty of Americans out there who want to support themselves and be productive members of society and can’t because they either can’t find a job or the job they have isn’t paying enough. It doesn’t help at all that the average cost of living keeps climbing higher and higher.
If you should happen to get sick and you have no health insurance (or poor health insurance) you’re either going in to the poor house or you’re going to die. Is this what the so-called land of opportunity is supposed to look like? Should the rich continue to get richer while the poor and the middle class struggle and suffer? Absolutely not! That’s not the American dream.
It is a such a breath of fresh air to finally hear somebody address this and in a mature and intelligent manner. Well done and well said Michelle.
