And as I got to know Barack, I realized that even though he'd grown up all the way across the country, he'd been brought up just like me.Really? You were brought up by a bunch of marxists too Michelle? Very interesting. Your parents abandoned you so that your grandparents could raise you and introduce you to all the best communists? Wow. So many shared memories you must have had with Barack. Did you have a choom gang too?
Barack was raised by a single mother who struggled to pay the bills, and by grandparents who stepped in when she needed help.Barack's mother left Barack so she could travel the world and be an "anthropologist". How many women would do that?
Barack's grandmother started out as a secretary at a community bank…and she moved quickly up the ranks…but like so many women, she hit a glass ceiling.Barack's grandmother became Vice-President of said bank. Some glass ceiling.
Like so many American families, our families weren't asking for much.
They didn't begrudge anyone else's success or care that others had much more than they did...in fact, they admired it.Barack Obama has based his whole presidency on class warfare. Time after time have we heard him talking about punishing the rich "fat-cats" with higher taxes. These are the people who run small and large businesses and hire others. They are the ones who make the economy run.
We learned about dignity and decency – that how hard you work matters more than how much you make…that helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.So trust the government to give your money to welfare recipients. And we'll make a war on your church, whom you think knows better than the government where to put your charity dollars.
We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean…and we were taught to value everyone's contribution and treat everyone with respect."Janitors" is racist.
And I've seen how the issues that come across a President's desk are always the hard ones – the problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer…the judgment calls where the stakes are so high, and there is no margin for error.Barack Obama has memos cross his desk. He then checks a box. (Bin Laden: check here if we should kill him today. Check here if Valerie should study the situation. Check here to go play golf now.)
And as President, you can get all kinds of advice from all kinds of people.Valerie Jarrett runs his administration.
So when it comes to rebuilding our economy, Barack is thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother.A member of the Chicago Political machine, and a Communist.
That's why he cut taxes for working families and small businesses and fought to get the auto industry back on its feet.What he fought for was the over-payed union workers, who donate to Obama and the Democrats more than any other group. Cutting taxes? Obamacare is the single biggest tax increase in history. It will target the middle class more than any other group. It is a large part of Obama's war on jobs. The "recovery" from this recession is the worst "recovery" in history.
He did it because he believes that here in America, our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine…our kids should be able to see a doctor when they're sick…and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness.Death Panels. We already had the best healthcare in the world. Yes, there are things that could be made better, through the free marketplace.
And he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care…that's what my husband stands for.Barack Obama stands for killing babies, even if they are born alive.
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.From the church they attended for twenty years. From the man that married them and baptized their babies.
