Michelle's Good Advice Unheeded by Her Husband

American First Lady Michelle Obama addressed the graduating class at Eastern Kentucky University Saturday. Her advice was to reach out. ~~~~~ "If you're a Democrat, spend some time talking to a Republican," Mrs. Obama told 600 education, business and technology graduates at the third and final commencement ceremony of the day. "And if you're a Republican, have a chat with a Democrat. Maybe you'll find some common ground, maybe you won't." Mrs. Obama predicted they would learn something only if they reached out "with an open mind and an open heart." She said, "We know what happens when we only talk to people who think like we do. We just get stuck in our ways." ~~~~~ We sure do know what happens, Mrs. Obama. And this speech must have been easy for you to write - since it has to be what you say to your husband every morning. But alas, we know that Barack doesn't seem to be able to hear this advice. He's too stuck in his way of talking to people who think like he does.

    Obama couldn't have an honest conversation with anyone who didn't agree with him. Why? because he has blinders on to all new ideas that he doesn't think of.

  2. Maybe one should question the belief factor of Michelle Obama on her statements. She is really as closed minded as her husband.

    Seems every first lady has to be given "Diva" status of sorts

  4. We should all hear and debate opposing views of any subject. And certainly there is some good about diversity in ones life.

    But let's not forget about the comfort and self creating strength that being with those who share the same views. When I'm with people who have like thoughts at the end of my encounter with them I am excited, re-energized, and ready to go out and face the descenders that are in fact the villains in my world.

    I would love to have a conversation with Obama ... but what would i gather from it. we are the North and South pole on every subject I can think of.

    The impact and strength of ones belief are simply multiplied by those who believe the same.

    Now socially maybe diversity is well worth the adventure.

    Only a thought.
