Chris Wallace On Michelle O: Speech Was “All About Government”


First off, even the AP can’t help but note some of the issues

“He reminds me that we are playing a long game here … and that change is hard, and change is slow and it never happens all at once,” she told a nation impatient with slow economic progress and persistently high unemployment of 8.3 percent. “But eventually, we get there, we always do,” she said in a speech that blended scenes from 23 years of marriages with the Obamas’ time in the White House.

And, just in time for the DNC, the US debt hit $16,000,000,000,000. As for Chris Wallace

(The Blaze) While Fox News political analyst Chris Wallace called first lady Michelle Obama’s address to the Democratic National Convention “masterful” and heartfelt, he said he was struck by the fact that nearly all of her speech was about about the importance of government in the lives of Americans.

“I’ve got to say, listening closely to the speech one of the things that struck me was it was all about government,” Wallace said Tuesday night during Fox News’ coverage of the DNC. “When she talked at the beginning about the people who exemplify the best of the American spirit, she talked about teachers and first responders and the military, all very admirable professions, but all government.”

He continued: “When she talked about ways to build the middle class, it was all about the auto bailout and student loans and health care reform, once again, all government programs…That was a subtle subtext to the entire speech.”

No, I did not watch the speech. There’s only so much pandering, lying, and patronizing I can take during an abortionfest. I did read the transcript this morning (hence the somewhat late posting times), and it is interesting to note that very little was said during her speech about the private sector. Perhaps that’s why Team Obama attempted to distance itself from the “government is the only thing we belong to” video yesterday.

Also missing from most of the other speeches was any notion that the private sector is where it gets done (except to mention 4.5 million new jobs, which even CNN is not buying), and where the money comes from to allow government to operate. Because someone went out and put it all on the line to build their business.
