Yet you're getting all high and mighty about the word "really"?

You are as fair and balanced as Fox...
Rush doesn't want to be first lady of the United States. Michelle Obama has the possibility of representing the United States all over the world and representing millions of women as the first lady. To hear "this is the first time I've been proud of my country" rubs me the wrong way.

And, since you are wrong once again, if Rush had said that exact same thing, I wouldn't have liked it either.

You once said, you don't believe Rush would ever lie. That comes off a little as blind worship to me...

Personally, the quote doesn't rub me the wrong way at all, I don't care who said it...

^^OHHHHHH MY GAWD.... she did NOT Say that!!! ( 2861U2 )



Michelle has class. She and Barack ooze GRACE and elegance, something the mud slingers do not possess.

The President represents American women, not the First Lady. If we had a married female President would you say that her husband represents American men?

Anyway, I can agree that it was an unfortunate statement...it does seem clear enough to me from the context that what she in fact meant was more on the order of 'It makes me so proud of my country to see so many people coming together around common issues and seeking change; I haven't seen that on this scale in a long time, and it's an exhilarating feeling.' But I can agree that it was an unfortunate way to put it.

Her comments were worth a clarification. She did that today. It's pretty inconceivable that a person with her background wouldn't feel proud of America......this story won't gain much traction.

Huh? Show me. I'm pretty sure I would never say that.

Two words, "satellite footage", you said I don't think Rush would lie about that...

Deval said I could copy his homework."

You're missing the point.

It's not about words his friend said he could use, it's a bout the MESSAGE that is resonating with voters.

Barack would know better -- best to cheat off the annoying white girls.

On this we disagree.....

I have read enough to believe that Deval is not telling the whole truth about this incident.

It is about the words, when the perception (and perception is reality) is that the candidates stregnth is his words, and the way he inspires people to get off their asses...and believe in hope....ect....and the words are not his....

This is an issue.

What is not being reported is Duval used parts of Obama's earlier speeches when he was running for governor.

It does not sit well with me.

the messenger and the writer of the words does not matter?

if it is only about the MESSAGE
then any qualified speaker / actor could deliver it



Obama is the Tony Robins of politics

they each are good at getting people

FIRED UP
AND READY TO GO

Don't underestimate the power of a powerful message.
