the subject here is Michelle fibbing and acting like she's running for office.



Please outline those "fibs" and provide facts that prove they are lies.


And please stop directing people to the OP...there is nothing there...you didn't really provide anything besides another Obama hit piece.

negative.

list those items that are pertinent.

the subject here is Michelle fibbing and acting like she's running for office.

that's as far off topic I go.

see the other threads or start a new one with substance that interests you.



So "as far off topic as you will go" is saying

Please list the rest and comment on how all this helped the majority of American citizens.


but then saying it is off topic when your request is engaged? In that case, just about anything I can type will be just about as on-topic as your post. Especially because it wasn't about anything in the first place...

I hear that Mitt Romney's wife wears magic underwear. There... is that more on-topic? Because, honestly, I can't tell.

Well here's one good candidate:

Michelle said:

"Every day, I hear about how folks are struggling -- the bills they're trying to pay; the businesses they're trying to keep afloat. I hear about how folks are taking that extra shift, they're working that extra job

What "extra" job


What "extra" shift"


The average worker today is lucky to get 32 hours a week




I hear about how folks are taking that extra shift, they're working that extra job

I think she is dreaming.

She knows it's like this:
"I hear about how folks are taking [wishing for] that extra shift, they're working [wishing for] that extra job"

THAT's the realistic analysis

Look at the unemployment numbers.

(the Real ones, not the phony ones)

Well then show some substance.

Show some evidence.

Feel free to prove Michell is right.

Oh sure .. people just have to be one or the other eh? I support gay rights and the right to die with dignity, but because I also support a strong US miltiary that makes me 'conservative'. You are a riot, OutKast ... a real funny guy.


she shops at target and doesn't dress all out and you guys claim how she is so ghetto and not up to first lady status.

She doesn't shop at Target. She went on a well staged photo-op to Target. And I dont think I've ever said she was dressed like the ghetto. You are generalizing and saying things that simply aren't true.

Just admit it...you hate the Obama's

I can't stand either one of them.

.now go examine yourself and figure out why that is.

1 - Don't tell me what to do.
2 - I already know why I can't stand them. They are just like all the other stink'n politicians. Liars. Cheats. Hypocrites. Elite users. And their 20 year stint in the anti-white black liberation theology cult in Chicago makes them racists and especially revolting.

No one that "only hates his policies" would be as petty as you or the OP in their "hate"...there is a much deeper reason for that hatred.

It MUST be because they are black, right? Oh go ahead and pull that stupid race card that is the hallmark of every failed pro-Obama discussion here. You just know you are itching to. Go ahead ...

Maybe, but she can. She's not middle class and can dress as expensively as she desires.

That she is right when she says that people are struggling even when they are forced to work that extra job and extra shift? You need evidence for this? Do you live in Norway or some other paradise? You don't have neighbors or coworkers who are putting in extra blood and soul-sucking labor just to eat?

That's the whole issue with employment right now. There is a lot of unemployment and the ones who are employed are being overworked so they don't have to hire more people. I know lots of people who don't have work and lots of people who have more than one job. The scary thing is that the people who have two jobs still struggle.

That's not a lie there buddy.

That is your OPINION.

I know people who are working multiple jobs and working as much overtime as they can...am I lying too?

It's hilarious that your warped perception of reality is so distorted that you think people aren't working multiple jobs or overtime.


If that is the best you got...this thread should be tossed into Hoax and you should be ashamed of yourself.


But just to be clear...you are claiming that people aren't working multiple jobs or extra shifts to try to get by?

I don't think you mean a list that helped the majority of Americans. What you mean is, what helped out YOU specifically. You see, when a list is compiled of things the Government has done to really help the majority of Americans, it is almost always followed up by a complaint about how "they" are spending "my" tax money wrong, and redistribution, and then socialism enters the mix, and on, and on...

If you get people to talk long enough...the truth finally creeps out.

I didn't bring up they are black...but I guess it's on your mind.

WHAT DID I TELL YOU PEOPLE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

(sorry, didn't mean to shout)

THIS is the new norm.

9% unemployment.
Weak economy.
Failed policies.
Do-nothing congress.

This is the new normal.

I went through your list. Wow, sounds wonderful lots of spending for noble causes. Unfortunately, I did not see anything about cutting any waste and there is a ton of it that isn't getting any belt tightening.

Unfortunately, the list was loaded with new laws, and some were good, but most come with a cost to implement and run.

How many banksters got arrested for stealing and destroying our economy?

IMO we could have done better if Obama vacationed 365 days a week and Congress, too.

The middle class has been struggling for a long time...it's hilarious you and others are trying to blame Obama for it.

Recently, one of the biggest hits on the middle class is the recession that happend under someone else besides Obama. Since that time...the economy has been improving at a steady, but slow rate. You can look at unemployment, you can look at the stock market, you can look at GDP, you can look at home sales, you can look at many many things to see that the economy is a a slow and steady recovery.

Even Republicans know this now...which is why they have changed their rhetoric from "Obama is killing the economy" to "Obama got in the way of a faster recovery". They have conceded that the economy is recovering...so the only thing they have left is to try to spin that it isn't recovering quick enough.

But keep on trying...it's not working...people are seeing how Obama turned the economy around, and that is why he will be re-elected.

Are you honestly complaining about substance???

Did you read your own OP???

Keep up the dodging...it only exposes that you have NOTHING to say.


The one "lie" you pointed out is trying to claim that people aren't working extra jobs or overtime.


You sure are exposing those evil lies of the Obama's

You're not special. No one here is. And how is it worth your time to sit here every year, waiting for the next Prez to come along and then toast him/her like a marshmallow over the fires of Hell?

Either run for Congress, or advocate the right candidate, or sit down and shut your mouth. State your opinion, have done with it. Sarcasm is meant for those who know how to use it, not trigger happy fools like you.

I've had it up to HERE with everyone constantly being unhappy. If they are really unhappy, either learn to make life better, or go to Iraq, where you get your arm blown off and you have to wait two weeks before getting proper medical attention.

Good day.

9% unemployment, nothing new.
Under-valued dollar, nothing new.
Downgrade in credit rating, nothing new.
6 dollar gas/galloon, nothing new.

The administration is floating this new *meme* .

This kind of thing happens all the time. Not to worry. It's normal.

Nothing new.

Well said.

But I have to think about it.

I didn't know Michelle was running from for POTUS.
