CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- Michelle Obama was the overwhelming star of Tuesday night's Democratic National Convention, delivering a powerful personal narrative about her husband still being the same deeply principled man she fell in love with 23 years ago when they were both broke and watching their families struggle.

Obama's speech contrasted with barnburners from the rest of the night, which attacked GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on everything from his Swiss bank accounts to flip-flopping on abortion. But the first lady's remarks also touched on the message that others, including the keynote speaker, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, made earlier: Struggle and success aren't just Republican ideals, and there's nothing un-American about getting help.

Obama's speech, like Ann Romney's at the Republican National Convention last week, focused on her relationship with a candidate that she knows as a husband and a father. But while Romney's talk of saving money by eating tuna and pasta fell flat, Obama's stories of student loan debt and family hardships made for a more convincing case that the can relate to middle-class struggles.

During her remarks, the first lady said she knew Barack would make an "extraordinary" president when he first ran in 2008, but in her quieter moments, she worried about the toll the spotlight would take on their daughters. She said she feared losing "the simple joys" she shared with her family.

I was hoping we could see her eat corn on the cob through a chain link fence.

Didn't waste my time watching her biased monologue. Did she repeat her original claim of finally being proud to be an American?

I watched the entire convention Tuesday,how refreshing! The republican convention was full of bloated old white haired people, with weird hats and red lipstick.The democratic convention was a diverse group of people all ages,races,and they also wore some very red lipstick.I have come to the conclusion that red lipstick should not be worn passed the age of 45.
All of the speakers gave dynamite performances last night, I was impressed.Michelle Obama looked elegant and conducted herself as a royally fine first lady.Her speech was lively,informative and full of respect and admiration, for the President of the United States of America.

The only speech that was impressive so far and ONLY in the "delivery" was Michelle's. I see that being able to stand in front of people and speak in a compelling manner is something that her and Obama have in common.

And to that end, they have something else in common. They can dynamically spew the BS and distortion with a straight face.

I can summarize easily the DNC's speeches:

1. Government is the answer for everything
2. They do NOT recognize the mess they are making
3. They want socialism
4. Romney and Ryan are a threats to them
5. They don't care if they spend us to oblivion
6. SPEND >> GROW GOVERNMENT >> REPEAT
7. Demonize successful people

The DNC does NOT have a CLUE or ANY answers.

One poster declared "Didn't waste my time watching her biased monologue."

Translation #1: "I cover my ears and eyes and cram my head up my rump whenever I hear something that doesn't coincide with my warped view of the world."

Translation #2: "I only listen to biased speeches delivered by Republicans."

Your "comic book of dave" is right out of the democratic platform.

Politicians - regardless of party affiliation - do not have clues or answers. However, don't let that stop from grovelling before and worshipping Republican politicians in the idiotic belief THEY have a clue or any answers, or actually give a d*mn about either America or average Americans.

Only a brainless, unthinking simpleton could believe shifting the control of government from one of the major political parties to the other will actually result in the "righting" of the listing, sinking ship that is America.

Idiot A: "Vote for Democratic candidates! They care about us and will give us honest government."

Idiot B: "Vote for Republican candidates! They care about us and will give us honest government."

And only cynical people would think that all politicians are the same and that all of them lie. And yet, they get elected by WE THE PEOPLE.

Personally I wish we didn't have a 'party' designation at all. I consider myself Conservative and am damn proud of it. And with that, I want government extremely downsized and for them to get the hell out of my life. I pay my taxes (ala Fair Share!) and follow the law. Other than that, they should not be in my life anymore. I should also not be demonized for trying to be successful or required to keep pulling more of the money that I EARNED and giving it away through entitlements that we can't afford. I want a secure country. I want a tax program in this country to change from a Progressive tax rate to a flat tax that EVERYBODY has to pay. I want the tax rates on business significantly reduced so there's more money for them to grow and CREATE JOBS.

And that's just a start. So one thing I do know is that the Democrat party doesn't espouse ANY of that and since they can't see the error of their ways, then I stand by my statement.....

Speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin today, would-be First Lady Michelle Obama said, "for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback." (Quote from ABC News)
Is this the racist Mrs.Obama, who's anti white racial college thesis that you could view on Google until her husband was elected but now has disappeared??? I guess I'm still boggled what people are missing. Up until he was destroying our country, was she not a proud American? Or was it more muslim beliefs?

My ignorant friend, Im not mad as most folks want to think of anyone that states the facts of a failed administration. Would I enjoy flying on Air Force One, shopping and interacting with other world leaders?, yes. My point is, that she has made the statement not just once, but twice, about finally being proud to be an American only after her Socialist bully of a husband was elected as president. I have been proud to be born and raised in our great nation, since I was able to realize where I was growing up. Whats next?, the statement that I don't like him because he's bi-racial? It's his ideals, values and the idea of wanting and needing the government to control everything. I do believe most people deserve a chance, he just fell short by trillions of dollars in less than 4 years.

More deranged rantings from yet another crackpot conspiracy theorist.

The Obamas have to be the most powerful people on the planet, seeing as they can stop every publication, every news outlet, every conservative pundit, every blogger, every website, every political analyst from publishing, broadcasting, posting, blogging anything negative about them, AND they can make anything that sheds a negative light on them magically disappear.

Have you always been insane, or is this a recent development?

Good lord! What do these morons eat, drink, smoke, snort or shoot-up that enables them to dream up the blabbering, slobbering nonsense they post here on a daily basis?
