Hey Michelle – Why You Lyin’ About Barack’s Grandmother Like That???

Of the many “stretched truths” told by Michelle Obama on the opening evening of the DNC convention, one line in particular jumped out as blatantly misleading, further emphasizing how easily the Obama’s paint a picture that rarely resembles reality…

The emphasis on women was rather heavy handed by desperate Dems fearful of a recent and strong Romney/Ryan surge that has the Obama campaign scrambling to play catch up.  Michelle Obama came out and did her own predictable part in attempting to paint her husband as one who comes from a simple background – neglecting to indicate how he spent much of his youth raised in Hawaii, attending an elite private school, and being supervised by two adults who provided him all the opportunities afforded one living in upper middle class privilege.  Michelle Obama’s telling of that story though painted a far different, and entirely misleading picture:

“When it comes to rebuilding our economy, Barack is thinking about folks like my dad — who worked at a municipal water plant — and his own grandmother, a bank secretary,” the first lady said.

Hmmmm…either Michelle Obama is unaware of the well known history of her husband’s grandmother – or she is purposely misleading the American public with her description of Barack Obama’s grandmother as “bank secretary”.   Madelyn Dunham, the Obama matriarch whose home Barack Obama moved into full time by the time he was in 5th grade and where he would reside until graduating high school some eight years later, was far more than a  mere “bank secretary” as described by Michelle Obama.  Madelyn Dunham was in fact a bank vice president by the time young Barack moved into her home.

All of the economic benefits of two wage earners, including one who was a high powered bank executive, were given over to Barack Obama, who wanted for nothing, and spent his days in Hawaii smoking weed, playing basketball, and befriending the local drug dealer – who also happened to be a homosexual.  (And who Obama also dedicated a passage in his senior yearbook to.)

So leave it to Michelle Obama to perfectly exemplify the lying platform upon which her husband’s re-election is based upon.  Barack Obama was, for much of his youth, a child of privilege – one who was given much from the salary of a grandmother making good within the banking industry.  And good for  Madelyn Dunham for having done so – and shame on Michelle Obama for attempting to hide that fact out of fear it may lessen the Obama campaign’s phony populist image.

Just another empty chair in a room full of them at this week’s DNC convention.

 

P.S. - Vice President Joe Biden sat watching Michelle’s speech tonight in person and I swear he looked like he wanted to put her back in chains…

    • DAMMIT UM!!! THAT LAST LINE ABOUT BIDEN MADE ME SNORT OUT BY JUICE!!!! GREAT ARTICLE. I COULD ONLY WATCH ABOUT 5 MIN OF HER TALK. THAT LADY IS BAD NEWS FOR AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Aussie
    • Do they ever stop the lying? Since when does bank secretary equate to Vice President? It is no wonder that Mooch had to surrender her law licence because she never knows how to tell the truth.

    • Redwine
    • Has anyone ever corroborated Empress Mooch’s sob story about her father’s MS? Or is she just lying in order to compete against, or even belittle, Ann Romney?

      I for one hadn’t heard about her father having MS until Romney was considered the presumptive nominee and Ann’s suffering with MS and cancer became wider knowledge.

      Until I see absolute proof of this dreadful woman’s father’s disease, I’m calling BS on it.

      • ThroughtheLookingGlass
      • Red, I remember her speech in 08…sure it is still online. She said something about her Dad being ill…but I thought he was a mailman…walking in the rain, snow, sleet and hail to deliver the mail. Might have been arthritis, but it could have been MS Who knows for sure?

        • Redwine
        • Her father was a city water plant employee and Democrat precinct captain. He was very much involved with the Chicago political machine. I hadn’t heard about the MS until the Romney’s came around.

    • ThroughtheLookingGlass
    • Thing about these speeches… on their face they are accurate…somewhat. They are nothing but generalizations and obfuscations. Sure, Barry cares about women’s rights. We just aren’t sure which ones. All these speeches are structurally sound and entertaining, but lacking in facts and specifics. Sure the Dems want everyone to have a job and work hard. But they don’t have a plan to see it through. They just keep stretching the truth and ‘playing’ to the crowd as if they were an audience at a comedy club. Yeah, Barry wants people to work and succeed, he just won’t provide the tools to make it happen, instead he undercuts the means for others to make it happen for themselves. His ideology just doesn’t translate into the government working FOR the people. Half truths and innuendo is not a way to win an election. Pray that more people see beyond the smoke and mirrors and Kabuki Theater.

      Did she wear the same chains on her ears–pictured above–tonight? What a phoney. I’m sorry I can’t stand to hear her talk either. Must be the lisp. She doesn’t want people to work for themselves. She wants them to work for her and Barry so they can continue their lifestyle of the rich and famous without earning it.

      Re: the video of Ted Kennedy. More of Barry riding the coattails of someone who DID build that. What came to my mind was a reframing of an old quote: I remember Ted Kennedy. And Barry, you are no Ted Kennedy.

      Arrogance. Hubris. Narcissism. Oh, my.

      • Watched a few moments last night (all I could stomach) and the cameras’ panning of the adoring bobble-heads in the crowd was painful. Obots. Brainwashed. Pathetic. No wonder America’s going down the tubes.

        Phony Grifter Mooch still says ‘min’ instead of men.
        Sticks out like sore thumb.
        (Where were the slideshows from her vacations?)

        Her last line was a joke:
        ” . . . stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great country forward. . .”

        Trust Zero to lie to us,drag America down, and decimate the Constitution, that’s about all we can do.

        TRUST? TRUST? TRUST THEY WANT?

        Lying frauds who spend millions keeping their personal records sealed expect Americans to trust them?

        A phony president who’s throwing this country to the wolves – domestically and internationally tries to convince people this is moving forward?

        People who can’t tell fact from fiction deserve trust?

    • Well, well, Mooch went shopping again and found a sale on cliches. And did she pick up some bargains!

      For your typical Dem., cliches never go out of style; and libs just can’t resist ‘em.

      If I wanted to help them (I don’t), and if I thought they’d listen (I don’t), I’d advise avoiding them (like the plague, Mooch!), but I’ll just remind MO that pretty is as pretty does.

    • Didn’t watch – can’t stand it…will depend on these kind of sites and programs to get the “general drift” which I already know. Reminds me of the “Hitler” invasion and destruction – all the brainwashed people who followed him, etc. Sooooo unbelievable – but yet true.
      Here we are again except in the very country that helped free those victims, harshly criticized & sacrificed lives to fight the horrendous ungodly tyranny/Communism. Then recently fought & died for Musliims.
      So here we are now with a President & Admiin., uniting with the Muslims (Muslim Brotherhood) & Commies that is that same “enemy” we died & sacrificed to fight against — still too many who stubbornly, stupidly, arrogantly keep believing/living in denial, refusing to learn from history, facts or human nature and realities for whatever very stupid reasons. It’s overwhelmingly unbelievable – but yet true. And there are always consequences – bad ones….sooner or later. It’s now “sooner” for us. Very, very soon.
      With all this stuff about leaving God out & being more bold about their stance re the Government (being our “God”), etc. – seems like they have decided to remove their “mask” more and stirring up their lefty base – either thinking they are enough to win for their re-election and/or confident that the elections don’t matter b/c of their evil plans of false flag/suspension/takeover to happen. ?????
      Don’t know – all I know is – we will find out very, very soon.

      • Stirrin the B.S.
      • @t&j – “….seems like they have decided to remove their “mask” more and stirring up their lefty base….”

        I agree that they are emboldened and are removing their mask, but they are leaving a veil on so as not to completely scare the moderates. The moderates and otherwise dyed-in-the-wool democrats either can’t see or do not want to see what is behind the veil. On the other hand, the the hard lefty base understands perfectly and are ccoming out from under their rocks and basements to participate. That is the frightening aspect of this election.

        • Actually the extreme left is doing what they’ve always done… they’ve always been public with their views… the last campaign is proof of that fact. Remember when Obama said, as a candidate, that the world could compete if the US would level the playing field? Well, take a look, the stimulus was a huge success when put in context with that statement. The fact that the middle and lower classes are the ones to hurt the greatest serves to prove it… folks in those ranks can’t help but notice. Last cycle they heard what they wanted to hear, it was hard for folks to think of a presidential candidate that actually believes that America’s demise is a good thing. And, because of that, it was easy for the left to paint the right as lunatics for stating the obvious.

          What’s different is that we have a greater impact than we did last time to point out positions of concern and the lies… a failed economy is forcing people to take a deeper look. I just pray enough are doing just that.

    • She Lied!

      Do these Obamabots really think we believe their sorry arse rhetoric? Don’t they realize they are exposing to all intelligent and educated people how stupid they are? Haven’t they figured out they have been disclosing to the world their own bad characters that support lying, stealing, cheating, looting, intimidation, murder, treason and every sort of crime created by mankind. These aren’t exactly the kind of people from whom America wants to buy insurance, real estate or a used car.

      They are so stupid they constantly betray themselves with the stupidity that that spews form their twisted mouths. They think they are winning us over not realizing how demeaning and insulting they are to us. If you think I am exaggerating, just watch the cornucopia of asinine, uninformed, biased, racist, bigoted, and malevolent statements that is coming out of the DNC. IS THAT THE BEST THEY GOT? THEY WANT TO RULE THE WORLD? They are addicted to putting their foot in their mouths while they put their best foot forward and shoot themselves in the foot.
      Let’s start with their favourite supposedly emotional charged power words and sayings to make their points when reason supersedes them: Racist, social justice, fat cat bankers, greed, capitalist, birther, right wingers, race baiters, islamaphobia. . .

    • There are also reports out there that say Granny Dunham worked at the Honolulu courthouse vital statistics division in her younger years, where she had access to the social security numbers of mainlanders who passed away in Hawaii during their retirement years.

    • Anonymous group allegedly hacked Romney tax records via Franklin firm

      http://nashvillecitypaper.com/content/city-news/anonymous-group-allegedly-hacked-romney-tax-records-franklin-firm

      “Romney’s 1040 tax returns were taken from the PWC office 8/25/2012 by gaining access to the third floor via a gentleman working on the 3rd floor of the building. Once on the 3rd floor, the team moved down the stairs to the 2nd floor and setup shop in an empty office room. During the night, suite 260 was entered, and all available 1040 tax forms for Romney were copied. A package was sent to the PWC on suite 260 with a flash drive containing a copy of the 1040 files, plus copies were sent to the Democratic office in the county and copies were sent to the GOP office in the county at the beginning of the week also containing flash drives with copies of Romney’s tax returns before 2010. A scanned signature image for Mitt Romney from the 1040 forms were scanned and included with the packages, taken from earlier 1040 tax forms gathered and stored on the flash drives.

      The group will release all available files to the public on the 28 of September, 2012.”

      AND they’re selling them to anyone wishing to pay $1 Million to get them!

      FACT CHECK: FIRST LADY’S FALSE FAIRY TALE OF STRUGGLE

      First Lady Michelle Obama’s pitch to voters last night relied on the premise that she and her husband understand what it is to struggle to make ends meet. She spoke movingly about their early years–about how a young Barack Obama drove a car that was “rusted out” and found his furniture “in a dumpster,” how they both came from families that had to “scrape by.” Her fairy tale–however well-delivered–was one great, big, colorful lie.

      Both Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama began their adult lives with a leg up on the rest of America. They attended elite schools: Michelle went to Whitney Young, the public magnet school for Chicago’s upper class, while Barack attended Punahou, the private prep school for the top stratum of Hawaiian society. They were accepted to Ivy League schools despite undistinguished credentials, and both attended Harvard Law School.

      “[B]elieve it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bills were actually higher than our mortgage,” Michelle said. That sounds like a raw deal–but in fact reflects their fortunate circumstances. They had both just graduated from a very expensive law school, and their combined income from cushy law firm jobs dwarfed the repayments. Barack also soon enjoyed a second salary from the University of Chicago.

      They had expensive tastes, reflected in the $277,500 two-bedroom condo they bought in 1993–a high price even by today’s standards. Several years later, they moved into their $1.65 million mansion in Hyde Park–with the help of fraudster Tony Rezko. Barack often told a story of hardship on the campaign trail in 2008 about having his credit card declined–once. The fact that he thought this counted as real hardship speaks volumes.

      As her husband moved onto the national political stage, Michelle Obama began to enjoy a lavish lifestyle at taxpayer expense, directly and indirectly. When Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate, he obtained a $1 million earmark for the University of Chicago Hospital–and his wife’s salary as Vice President for Community Affairs jumped from $121,910 to $316,962. Her job: pushing poor, uninsured patients to other hospitals.

      As First Lady, Michelle Obama has lived high on the hog while the rest of the country has suffered through an extraordinary recession. In 2010, she and her entourage decamped to Spain for a lavish vacation. That summer, the Obamas encouraged Americans to visit the Gulf coast after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which threatened tourism in the region. They promptly jetted off to Maine for their own summer holiday.

      This summer, the Obamas skipped their usual summer trip to the wealthy playground of Martha’s Vineyard–months after Michelle and her daughters had enjoyed an expensive winter skiing trip in Aspen. And, of course, there are the frequent pilgrimages to Hawaii, Some of their family’s comfort, of course, comes from private income, principally Barack Obama’s book sales–yet even that wealth is a spin-off of Obama’s political career.

      If, as the Democrats eagerly pointing out, Mitt Romney enjoyed the privilege of private wealth, the Obamas have enjoyed privilege funded by public money and public life. And until entering the national spotlight, they gave little to charity, contributing instead to a church that preached racial grievance. “[T]ruth matters,” Michelle Obama told the nation last night. That, too, is a lie–because so far, she has evaded it without consequence.
