Michelle Obama: I had little
understanding of military
life before the White House

Politico, by Donovan Slack

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/9/2012 12:21:07 PM

First lady Michelle Obama says that she had no idea of the breadth of sacrifices made by members of the military and their families before entering the White House. "My connection to military life was pretty tangential," she said in an interview with ABC News set to air Tuesday. "Most Americans like me, they just don't have a clear idea of the sacrifice these men and women and their families make." Obama said she was "floored" by stories she heard about family upheavals and repeated deployments, and so she joined with second lady Jill Biden to bring attention

Comments:
Oh puhleeze. The military is only valuable to her and her slacker husband for use as a prop. You have to be really stupid to not know breadth of sacrifices made by members of the military. I utterly despise this grifter.

Socialists aren't flag wavers and neither was Black Liberation Church cleric Jeremiah Wright, or Bill Ayers and Louie Farrakhan--just guys in their neighborhood.

So where are the AP photos of their Chicago neighborhood, the neighborhood they never take their vacations at? Will it take the National Enquirer to take that story to the public?

I'd give her credit for her concerns, if she would use her wifely lobbying efforts to get her husband to light a fire under the Senate, to get them to pass a budget that prevents decimation of the ranks of said military servicemen and women (and the many defense contractor employees staring down the pink-slip barrel).

Until then, she's just pandering, sorry.

Wrong Mrs. Obama. Most Americans DO know the sacrifice that our military & military families make. Most of us have relative and friends who are or have served.

It is the academic "elite" socialists that don't know nor do they care.

She, as well as her hub and the Democrat party, hates the military. She masks it by declaring support (through dog and pony shows, public relations displays) for the families of military-- never for the actual work of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines.

Oh yes, you know, now that the Obamas are aware of it, suddenly the sacrifices are valid

Basically what she just said here is that up til now she has had absolutely no interest in supporting America's military. That's a pretty revealing -and damning-statement.

I take this just like #30: if she had not understanding of military life, she had no appreciation for it. It does not take much thinking to know that if a man is serving in Iraq or on a ship in the middle of the ocean, that his family is back home without him. "Little understanding" is what you have when you are so wrapped up in yourself, thinking how the country has discriminated against you, dealt you an unfair hand, how somebody else has something you don't have instead of being appreciative of what you do have and of your fellow Americans who volunteer to protect what you have.

She and her poseur hubby came to the WH in 2009. 9/11 happened in 2001, the Afghanistan War a month later, and 18 months later, the Iraq War. Is she telling us that she was so far removed from reality, so disinterested, so lacking in curiosity that she had no idea what military life was like? Did she not watch any newscasts for 7 years? If she had no idea, it was because she was too self-absorbed to find out.

Holder says feds will recognize
Michigan same-sex marriages

Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/28/2014 10:28:16 AM     Post Reply
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has extended federal recognition to the Michigan marriages of about 300 same-sex couples that took place before a federal appeals court put those unions on hold. Holder´s action on Friday enables the government to extend eligibility for federal benefits to the couples. It came two days after Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said Michigan won´t recognize the marriages performed last weekend. U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman struck down the gay marriage ban the day before. Snyder´s move closed the door to certain state benefits reserved solely for married couples. Four counties granted licenses before the 6th

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Emergencia: FCC might require Spanish

The Obama administration is considering whether to require that television broadcasts of emergency announcements be provided in different languages. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday said it is reconsidering a rule that would provide Spanish broadcasts of emergency alerts and other important announcements. The rule was originally recommended in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, groups including the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) petitioned the FCC to require broadcasters to notify Spanish listeners in the event of an emergency. "MMTC filed its petition on Sept. 22, 2005, in response to its perceived deficiencies in distributing multilingual emergency information

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats´ success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn´t mince words. "I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform —

The unethical and illegal behavior of Democratic state senators in California, where Democrats have total control of the state legislature, is giving the state’s Democratic Party concerns that the GOP may use the misbehavior to regain power. Since the beginning of 2014, every month has featured a Democratic state senator either being arrested or convicted. The latest arrest came Wednesday, as Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco was arrested on federal corruption charges. The federal government charged Lee with conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms. In January, Sen. Rod Wright of Inglewood was convicted of

During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in

Harry Reid: People Aren’t Educated

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing
