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.
