First Lady Talks About President’s Background And Accomplishments


The First Lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned speech at the opening night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC. She spoke of the President’s humble upbringing, his accomplishments, all without falling to the low level of campaign invective that has so far characterized the national elections. Although some might say making a big deal of the fact Barack Obama isn’t rich, and that he and running mate Joe Biden know the “value of honesty” is an indirect attack on rivals Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Some people like anyone who was paying attention.
