Michelle Obama: Average American
doesn´t ´know much about the military´

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/23/2014 10:27:58 PM

First lady Michelle Obama took her campaign to help veterans find jobs to Fort Campbell, Ky.., Wednesday where she said that most Americans don´t know much about the military. Following comments from Jill Biden, the vice president´s wife and Obama´s teammate in helping veterans, she noted that unlike Biden, she had little familiarity with the military prior to campaigning for the White House in 2008. “Unlike Jill, I wasn´t a military mom. I wasn´t a Blue Star family member. I didn´t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.

Comments:
And you don´t either Mooch! I just can´t tolerate the utter hypocrisy of this woman. Meanwhile, her husband allows the VA to treat them like animals, is destroying the military with budget cuts, his social engineering pushing the gay agenda, cutting their insurance and benefits, etc. They´re both disgraceful how they stand up there and lie like they care about those men and women.

The average American is what makes up the military, it is those on the left that has denigrated the military, i.e. Bill and Hillary Clinton and their lovely daughter That consider the military as hired help when they were in the White House. Visiting with the military does not make you an expert.

Michelle Obama compares the difficulties of being the wife of a politician to those of being a military member? Also, she appears to have been interested in only the women members of the military – she still has no idea about the lives of our military - their hardships, their sacrifices.

Americans do know our military – they are our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. We do know them and we love them and support them.

We “don’t know much about the military”?

Speak only for yourself, Mrs. Obama

Freudian slip? How presumptious of this ´First Lady,´ to attempt to devalue & demean the profound respect which, ´´Average,´´ Americans, have for those who serve in the military protecting us! Obviously it must be only her circle of pals who do not, ´´know much about the military!´´ Most Americans know all about the United States Military, up close and personal, despite such digs by Michelle & 0.

Michelle is becoming more annoying as each day passes-even more annoying than Hillary..
And as for Jill Biden, her son served as a military lawyer, probably receiving a direct commission. That is not comparable to the typical star mother.
And Beau is the son of a big time draft avoider..

Agree with all above. This is becoming the norm in America. The entity savaging a cause is held in esteem or as an advocate for a cause based on "words" of caring while their blatant actions against the cause are ignored. Case in point the Obama admin including Michelle. They have been destroying the military and proclaiming peace in a dangerous world, so they can take from the military and give to the "victim class" which will reproduce and create more victims.
The problem for the O team is that as they show weakness and weaken our power, evil takes its place in the vacuum, and it is exponentially more difficult to re rid the world of psychos like Putin.
After WW III, if we survive, can we finally learn the lesson about Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, Monarchism, Shira Law or any other form of government that empowers government over the rights of man?
That is the hypocrisy of Michelle.

Message to Michelle - no, you are NOTHING like average, freedom loving, true Americans. To say that 99% of our nation take the military´s service for granted is an enormous insult. There are many veterans in my family, and they, along with active military, deserve so much more than this.

I try very hard to keep my stress level low, but this ´so called family´ living in our White House just about make my blood boil. Never, in all the decades of my life, do I remember a president or a member of his family, so openly insulting the American people.

We need to hear said, "Unlike many unemployed, I wasn´t out of work. I don´t need a job. I wasn´t receiving or lost hard earned unemployment benefits. I didn´t know much about looking for work in a bad economy, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama. She added that not counting the lost unemployment benefit folks looking for work, the 148M Benefit Takers of the nation take the taxes paid by the 86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers and 3million looking for a job for granted. “Because when over one third of the country is working and providing the income of the balance of the population, it’s very easy for the 148M Benefit Takers to take that for granted.” When she did come into contact with lost unemployment benefit folks and their families and the hardships they face, the first lady said that she was “blown away.”

Agree with #26. My blood has been on simmer since 2009 and spikes to boil on an ever increasing regularity. It is offensive that this left wing, America hating grifter tells us that the Average American doesn´t know much about the military. I´d like to know her definition of what constitutes an "Average American". I can tell her husband one thing though. The Average American doesn´t view members of our armed forces as a "photo-op", as he has. Mooch does the same thing but has the sense not to publicly admit it. Gutting our military is not supporting it. When Zippy and Mooch took up residence in the People´s House we had the strongest military in the world. We had the ability to fight and win wars on two fronts at the same time. We no longer have that ability thanks to the Emperor. But we have one hell of an entitlement program for the perpetual victim establishment that has elected the Marxist in Chief and his accomplice wife. We know our military quite well Michelle. We are just not used to a chief executive who has nothing for disdain for them. And would you please have a modicum of decency and stop using them as props so you can get your ugly mug on the network news. They deserve far better than you and your husband.

It´s hard to say whether I am "average" or not, but I would certainly not claim to be from a "military" family. Yet my father and all my uncles served during WWII. My older brother served during the Korean Conflict. I served in Viet Nam. One of my sons did two tours in Iraq, while two other sons did their time in the reserves.

I suspect the "average" American knows a lot more about the military than the liberal elite...

These men and women are more than props, servants,and general go-fers You and your ´man´ had a son....would you be proud if he joined our military?

The First Cape Buffalo is certainly the hypocritical gift that keeps on giving isn´t she. I´ve got news for the Mooch both of my grandfathers, my dad, my older brother and myself have served honorably in the military. Therefore we know pretty much all that needs to be known. Even if we didn´t what makes this angry, bitter, entitled cow think that she knows more about anything. The First Wookie and her husband Oblamo treat our great military and veterans with an utter disdain not seen since the Clinton error. How can we forget such gems like Navy Corpse-men, gleefully cutting military pay to funnel the money to the LoFo dodos, stupid rules of engagement in Aftrashinstan and the firing of good generals and admirals thus keeping the yes men and women. These are just a few of the ways that our esteemed CinC and his howler monkey wife "know much about the military" than we mere peons. I´m telling you fellow L-Dotters that 2017 CAN´T get here fast enough so that this grifting ingrate will be out of the White House.

Not because your skin color is what it is, but because your mind, your brain, your central nervous system, your "fake" education, everything about you is ugly, appalling, and a testament to the stupid dumbasses that permeate your political party...you deserve nary an ounce of respect from me, from my family, from military families, from anyone truly an American...you really stink!

MO is an insulting piece of work. I would venture to say that most everyone (progressives excluded) knows, cares about, and appreciates what the military does for us each and every day. Much more so than anyone in this lawless, evil, ´Administration´ ever could. I hope that those who had to listen to her drivel realized that her sincerity level is below zero. I pray that very soon our miitary will be able to serve under a CIC who is worthy of them. And......many thanks to all posters who served/are serving or have family members serving in the military; your efforts and sacrifices are definitely appreciated!

Here’s the glaring difference between the right and the left. The right wants to provide better pay and benefits to our military who serve us and the left wants to cut back those things and sign them up for government provided entitlements to control them.

One side recognizes service and the other recognizes a possible voting bloc.

"You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future - not a future that will be but one that might be. This is not a new world. It is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advancements, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom, but like every one of the super states that preceded it it has one iron rule...
Logic is an enemy and truth is a menace…
The chancellor, the late chancellor, was only partly correct. He WAS obsolete. But so is the state and the entity he worshiped. Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete - a case to be filed under “M” for mankind in the Twilight Zone."
--Rod Serling - The Obsolete Man - perfectly describing the Obama Regime.

Thank Heavens! Every American I know is above average, as are the readers of Lucianne.com. Where does Mrs. Obama´s kind of stupidity come from? Hint: it smells of sulphur smoke and has ashes all over it.

One could hope that Jill Biden wouldn´t stick a big fat foot in her own mouth and chew vigorously.

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Ex-New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson joined Greta Van Susteren tonight to open up about her firing and her experience at the Times. Abramson also defended a claim she has made previously that the Obama White House is the “most secretive” she’s ever dealt with. Abramson said she’s “never dealt with an administration where more officials… demand that everything be off the record.” She cited criminal investigations against journalists’ sources, including the current case involving Times reporter James Risen, to make the case of just how secretive the White House is. In fact, she told Van Susteren, “I spoke

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

The White House won’t reveal where it is housing thousands of Central American juvenile migrants because their privacy rights trump Americans’ right to know what‘s happening in their neighborhoods, press secretary Josh Earnest declared July 16. “The public does have a right to know what’s happening… [but] at the same time, there are privacy rights that are included in the law that this administration is committed to enforcing and following,” Earnest told Ed Henry, Fox News’ White House correspondent. “We are not surprised in the least to see the Obama administration imitate the smugglers,” William Gheen, founder of Americans for Legal Immigration

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges." The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and

First Lady Michelle Obama told a harrowing story Wednesday of a soldier caught in a “fire fart” during his wartime experience. “There’s this soldier that we met just a month ago,” Obama told the crowd at a Los Angeles event addressing the plight of homeless veterans, “who was caught in a fire fart–fight in Afghanistan.” The soldier returned home to find a bleak environment for veterans of war, according to Michelle’s prepared remarks at the event, which also featured a presentation from Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti. “Just try putting yourselves in their shoes for just a moment,” Michelle said

Newly released testimony latest evidence
Benghazi attacks premeditated

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

Jay Carney just left the White House podium and he’s already joined the ranks of George W. Bush, Tom Brokaw and Mike Ditka in one profitable enterprise: lecturing on the private speaking circuit. The former Obama administration flack signed on this month with the Washington Speakers Bureau, a gig that came with a signing bonus and is likely to yield payments as high as $100,000 per speech to share his personal presidential anecdotes and analysis of the next two election cycles. As the most recent high-profile person out the West Wing door, Carney can expect to be in high demand

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
