Michelle: We are “Blessed” to Have Barack

by Keith Koffler on May 2, 2012, 7:52 am

First Lady Michelle Obama invoked religious imagery again in offering praise for her husband, asserting Tuesday that the nation was “blessed” to have him.

Speaking at a fundraiser in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Michelle described the financial and professional difficulties of President Obama’s mother and grandmother. And then she added:

So believe me, Barack knows what it means when a family struggles.  He knows what it means when someone doesn’t have a chance to fulfill their potential.  Those are the experiences that have made him the man, and, more importantly, the President he is today.  And we are blessed to have him.

Ironically, Michelle is giving literal meaning to the name Barack, which is derived from African and Arabic words meaning “blessing.”

Michelle’s remark comes just two weeks after she alleged that “this President has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”

The Chosen One will hold two fundraisers in Washington today.

Speaking of fundraisers, more begging- the last line sounds like a street bum?

There are two ways to look at it: This is yet another email from the campaign in your inbox. Or this email is making our organization stronger.

Grassroots support, especially online, is how we compete with our opponents. And we won’t win without it.

How do you spell “brain dead”? The word is “damned” not “blessed”!

Girly1 May 2, 2012 at 9:30 am

“So believe me, Barack knows what it means when a family struggles”

The only thing Queenie ‘sh-truggles with is the English language!

McBain May 2, 2012 at 9:30 am

Nothing Moo says surprises me anymore. She is clueless, classless and totally undignified. She has the audacity to say this as she raids taxpayer funds for her many frivilous vacation jaunts while the rest of america suffers from this abomination in the WH.
BHO and his wife, who looks like Patrick Ewing, are the lowest of the low and must be defeated in 2012.

Susan May 2, 2012 at 9:35 am

“And we are blessed to have him.”

Who’s the we you speak of Mooch? You and the two Buicks fighting for a parking space in your caboose?

Gail May 2, 2012 at 9:40 am

okay..that was funny!

Lizzy May 2, 2012 at 9:48 am

Royal ‘We’ they’re King and Queen don’t you know.

songman May 2, 2012 at 9:37 am

She may be blessed to have him but the country has been cursed.

Gail May 2, 2012 at 9:39 am

If we are lucky to have him..our luck has just run out…along with our money, our patience, our ability to stomach any more of the lies coming out of their mouths…….bye bye Obumbles, go be a “blessing” somewhere else!

miked May 2, 2012 at 9:41 am

go back to the field and graze,you worthless commie mooooooooo

steveo May 2, 2012 at 9:42 am

What’s with this everything is “blessed” cr-p. The Black community uses it so much now for such stupid stuff that it’s lost all meaning. Now gangbangers say they’re “blessed’ for not getting their a-s shot off in a drive-by.

mrsharfer May 2, 2012 at 10:40 am

Exactly! And their overuse of “awesome” makes me want to barf. The ONLY thing that is awesome is God!

Joe May 2, 2012 at 9:44 am

More like cursed. I despise this president.

Lizzy May 2, 2012 at 9:46 am

Did you catch her remarks in Colorado Springs the other day she said this
. “My family, we lived in a little bitty apartment on the South Side of Chicago over my aunt’s house [and] my mom still lives in that house to this day.”
So who’s that woman claiming to be her mother the one she leaves her two
girls with when she’s out strugglin and sacrificin with the little man? An
imposter? If the Obama’s are breathing they are lying oh she also is including
herself in getting Bin Laden ‘we brought him to justice’ hubris doesn’t even
begin to describe these two.

Car in May 2, 2012 at 9:54 am

Humn … I thought I’ve seen pictures of her rather nice middle class house?

Car in May 2, 2012 at 10:01 am

Ha, this from a 2008 article -

To Joe Novak, this only goes to prove that Michelle is distorting reality when she attempts to depict herself as a champion of the masses.

“For the past year (she and Barack) have jetted around the country with Oprah Winfrey and Robert De Niro, enjoying penthouse parties and living the high life,” he said.

Perhaps, when she contrasts her current red-carpet lifestyle with the unassuming world of South Euclid Avenue, she genuinely may think that her childhood was impoverished. And the one thing that is certain about the incredible Mrs O is that she never intends to have to live that way again.

Another great resource for their early life…

She’s not worried about lying to the lemmings. He could murder a child in broad daylight on the WH lawn and they’ll still vote for him.

Lizzy May 2, 2012 at 10:29 am

How true she think we flat earthers are too stupid to fact check
all the lies they tell a full time job.

Glenn Hansen May 2, 2012 at 9:48 am

No only is he NOT a blessing, he’s the exact opposite. We’ve had to endure nearly four years of immoral, amoral, deceptive, dishonest, and incompetent “leadership”. The thought of having this continue for 4 more years is to scary to comprehend. And what’s even worse is that nearly 40% of the country is fully on his side because of abject stupidity, indifference and/or a desire to take this country illegally down a different path than our Founders ever conceived.

God help us all.

Notalib May 2, 2012 at 9:53 am

We will be blessed to be rid of this Marxist family. Perhaps when they are through with their White House occupation, they will move to a communist country and leave us alone. They would never survive living without the freedom America has to offer and they know it. There has never been a more self serving, hypocritical, delusional, America hating, immoral first family in history anywhere. These two deserve each other; they don’t deserve to live in America.

John May 2, 2012 at 9:54 am

Lucky??? If barrack were captain of a pirate ship and he had a constitution to follow—his crew would mutiny and they would rightfully hang him from the yardarm.

Peggy May 2, 2012 at 9:54 am

No, SHE is the “we” who is ‘blessed’ to have him” — because SHE gets all the “free trips”, publicity, employees doing her bidding, reporters fawning over her as if she actually is somebody “special” — and don’t forget the “toy jet” she “gets” to use if “barack” delays leaving for someplace that she wants to get to! (She took a separate jet to Hawaii for “Christmas vacation” FOUR HOURS ahead of obama, because she “didn’t want to ‘disappoint’ the girls”!! (Seems to me that “the girls” can’t have ANY ‘disappoint’[ments] in THEIR lives, but the disadvanteged black students who USED to attend Sidwell Friends on the vouchers that obama ELIMINATED when his daughters started attending can be “disappointed” for no longer being able to afford/allowed to go there — it’s sure okay to “disappoint” THEM, isn’t it?!)

Roxanna May 2, 2012 at 9:55 am

Blessed is not the word I would use.

john May 2, 2012 at 9:57 am

Michelle loves her husband. Its even cooler to me because I essentially disagree with that couple about 99% of the time. but they do totally behave toward each other correctly They will get through this buffeting and be a happy loyal couple somewhere back in Chicago or somewhere next year this time. No sarc tag.

ADM May 2, 2012 at 9:59 am

If she had not followed her older brother into the Affirmative Action machine, she would not be where she is today. Her high school grades stunk. All these degrees by she and her husband are a joke. They weren’t earned in any way. They were given. Neither of them could make change for a dollar bill.

KG May 2, 2012 at 10:04 am

No Moochelle, I would blessed if I witnessed Barry, you and the entire clan being frog marched to a plane headed for Kenya permanently.

Cap May 2, 2012 at 10:05 am

188 days till the election, 262 days till the end of this “Blessing” and “Its Mornin’ Time”

jim May 2, 2012 at 10:06 am

Back off, everyone. The Obama family struggled plenty when Michelle had to take that phony-baloney $300,000-per-year “community outreach” job at U of Chicago Hospitals. Times were tough.

Pete May 2, 2012 at 10:12 am

Wish I had those “struggles”

Exjupiter May 2, 2012 at 10:07 am

May I PUKE now?

Debra May 2, 2012 at 10:08 am

Blessed to have him!….if that remark were not so funny, I would be crying right now….if he wins re-election I will be crying!

SteveO May 2, 2012 at 10:08 am

Apparently Obama must have a big stick, because she sure isn’t thinking clearly.

CCPony May 2, 2012 at 10:10 am

What sickens me more? – - a First Lady who believes that we should worship her husband or the brainless masses that do?

Pete May 2, 2012 at 10:12 am

I’d say it’s a fair toss up

Pete May 2, 2012 at 10:11 am

Was that a joke? Seriously? We are BLESSED to have him as president? Whatever she is drinking or smoking, I’ll take a double so I too can see how blessed we are. Because where I’m standing, it’s not even close to being blessed.

Justin May 2, 2012 at 10:13 am

“Blessed” isn’t a word that I would have used. “Cursed” seems more appropos.

billm May 2, 2012 at 10:17 am

get out of my state, scum. Jesus is my blessing not your murdering husband.

Sam Adams May 2, 2012 at 10:19 am

Satan disguises himself as an angel of light to fool the unsuspecting and unwise. The nation is cursed under Obama and will continue it’s downhill spiral if he is ‘re-elected’ this November. This is not the country our Founders left us and it is an embarrassment how far we’ve fallen from the standards that once defined America.

BobJones May 2, 2012 at 10:20 am

How I wish we could go back to the state of the economy under Bush. $1.89 gas. 4.9% unemployment. Remember the media telling us how horrible it was? Where is the damned media now?

sb36695 May 2, 2012 at 10:20 am

Speak for yourself! It has been a nightmare to my small business. And if Obama is reelected, I am closing.

Racist Obamessiah May 2, 2012 at 10:22 am

If Obama is a blessing, please curse America IMMEDIATELY!

manlyva May 2, 2012 at 10:26 am

I must agree with Michelle, but I would only change one word in her delivery. Change out the word “nation” with “World”. I have no idea why this Nation is “blessed” to have him. Spending Billions on Stimulus to his “buddies” and not the tax payer, making millions more dependent upon government assistance, adding more debt in 3 years to the deficit than the last three presidents, using every single event as a political event…the list goes on and on. So, why is this nation blessed? I think because November 2012 is coming….nuff said!

Doc Holliday May 2, 2012 at 10:27 am

The Obama’s… the gift that keeps on giving… Every time I think they have sunk to a new low, they surprise me with a NEW, new low. The egos here are amazing.

ce May 2, 2012 at 10:28 am

one man’s blessing is another man’s curse.

JohnDave May 2, 2012 at 10:29 am

Right, Mooch-elle. We’ll be much more blessed to see you and your idiot husband
leave the whitehouse.

ReachRenee May 2, 2012 at 10:31 am

Moochelle makes my skin crawl just like her “blessed” husband.

desert May 2, 2012 at 10:34 am

bullshyt! we are cursed to have him! He is a wart on the butt of humanity…a scab on anything decent in this world!

Bill in Tennessee May 2, 2012 at 10:35 am

Well, no one on the Left would EVER admit this, but despite both of them having attended big name schools, both of them are over-educated dunces. They might know which end of the joint to light, how to pop open a beer, and how to community organize (whatever that is), but everyday simple tasks like balancing a checkbook, raising a child, or even tying their shoelaces are quite beyond them. Dunces. Behold our “leaders”…. dunces.

Marilyn MIller May 2, 2012 at 10:35 am

Obama’s biggest challenge yet-

How to get the oil off his shoe-horn.

mrsharfer May 2, 2012 at 10:36 am

My grandfather, a wise man, always said that, “if you look at life through a prism of good and evil, it’s not hard to see what side someone is on”. It has become hard to take when the liberals insist the obamination is on the GOOD side.

constant vigil May 2, 2012 at 10:38 am

Michelle: We are “Blessed” to Have Barack. More propaganda from Obama.
Who is “we”?
Obama’s “change” is not slow to come about, it has been here for almost 4 years and with all due respect, the United States is cursed to have Obama with his irresponsible economic and foreign policies which have done great damage to this country’s economy and domestic and national security for more detail read on…
“Mr. Obama has enacted myriad policies at great expense to American taxpayers and amid political rancor.”…
“The economic records set on Mr. Obama’s watch really are historic. These include the first downgrade of sovereign U.S. debt in American history, and, relative to GDP, the highest federal spending in U.S. history save the peak years of World War II, plus the highest federal debt since just after World War II.
The employment picture doesn’t look any better. The fraction of the population working is the lowest since 1983. Long-term unemployment is by far the highest since the Great Depression. Job growth during the first two years of recovery after a severe recession is the slowest in postwar history.
Moreover, the home-ownership rate is the lowest since 1965 and foreclosures are at a post-Depression high. And perhaps most ominously, the share of Americans paying income taxes is the lowest in the modern era, while dependency on government is the highest in U.S. history.
That’s quite a record, although not what Mr. Obama and his supporters had in mind when they pronounced this presidency historic” Michael J. Boskin.

Throw the Obamas out of office!!!

C. Whitmer May 2, 2012 at 10:38 am

I nearly fell over myself laughing at that last line…”The Chosen One”…dear heaven, that’s funny. I wish it weren’t so accurate, though. Why do people keep trying to make Presidents into Messiah figures? This is yet another example of the misuse of religion in political rhetoric…

I’m sure she feels blessed as is evidenced by the monies from the tax payers keep coming, so she can keep going ( on vacation)

Frank Lee May 2, 2012 at 10:41 am

Whatever kool aid the Obama’s are enjoying in their white house has to stop. I wouldn’t suggest we let that mix available to the public, I’d suggest the CDC step in and seize this mind altering, detiorating, dehabilitating from the White House! To think the White House should have as much power as they do, suggests the taxpayers aren’t paying attention.

Florida Jim May 2, 2012 at 10:42 am

Oh yes Obama is such a wonder! I wonder about his fraudulent Harvard Law Review Editor activity, he is said to not reviewed anything it was only to pad his resume. Both Barack and Michelle have lost their Law Licenses in Illinois for “law license insurance fraud for Michelle and Lying on His application” for Barack. Check a search engine for the Obama’s law licenses” for yourself.
