Krauthammer on Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech: “I’m Sure It Was a Great Speech But I Didn’t Buy a Line of It” (Video)

Charles Krauthammer on Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech:

“She told the story of a Gandhi. And considering the way he’s conducted himself in the presidency and particularly in the campaign, with ruthlessness and determination and drive, it’s not quite a plausible story…. I’m sure it was a great speech but I didn’t buy a line of it.”

    Her delivery was good, but she sounded like the female version of Eddie Haskel, acting like the astute, clean cut neighbor in front of the adults, and the real side comes out when only the friends are around.

  • Valerie

    Ugh. Just watching Rahm Emmanuel. What a toad.
    Now Paul Ryan, taking about the 16 T debt. No leadership on this issue. The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in three years.

  • Valerie

    I thought she did a fine Candidate’s Wife’s speech. Too bad her husband’s policies are disasters with respect to both the local economy and foreign policy. To be brutally honest, I do not care whether he’s a good husband, if his policies are as naiive and ineffective as those of this shambling wreck of an administration.

    And he’s still got Eric Holder as Attorney General (And he is an attorney, himself). This guy is a f’n incompetent.

    I would agree to taxpayer funded( 2 / year)vacation for life if they would just go the hell away.

    That sob story was so full of BS. Now they tell us Barack was a dumpster diver. Isnt that racist ?

  • TiredoftheObamas

    Does Mrs. Obama have some sort of speech impediment? She used the word so many times, you would think she would learn to pronounce “struggling.” It’s NOT “SCHTRUGGLING”!

    I really felt like she was over the top with her dramatics. It felt fake and forced to me. I cannot believe that the pundits are saying she was “masterful.” She seemed like a bad actress auditioning for a part in some B movie. Maybe I just didn’t like it because it was all a pack of lies, telling us how much Barack cares for us. If he cared for us, he’d be working on creating jobs instead of playing golf and vacationing on our dime.

  • bigkahuna

    Why is it that a woman is supposed to be able to choose to kill her baby ( instead of keeping her panties on or buying her own birth control) but I cant Choose not to buy a product or service ?????

    I cant choose to send my kid to a different public school of my choice ?????

    Why is it only murder of the innocent is a choice ?

  • Flintstone F.

    The empty chair concept was demonstrated well in her speech as she spoke of Obama saving the auto industry (cash for clunkers, dealerships suddenly out of business after decades of success, the Chevy Volt) and creating jobs (while losing jobs at a much faster rate he’s created government bureaucracy) and bringing our economy from the brink of disaster (much closer to the brink now than before).

    I’m seeing a woman modeling an empty showcase on the Price Is Right. Apparently he’s done all the things that haven’t been done.

    Every speech at the convention will be the same. In order for Obama to look mildly successful they have to tell complete bald faced lies. Krauthammer is bidding one dollar Bob (Drew).

  • bigkahuna

    They claim Romney is out of touch…How is the president who flies around on a private taxpayer funded 747 with maybe 20 other people and eats the finest meals every day with private staff cooking and cleaning ebverything.She doesnt do her laundry, sweep a floor, shop for squat, pay for anything and she thinks they are able.

    My take: “She told the story of a Gandhi. And considering the way he’s conducted himself in the presidency, he was actually a Chavez.”

  • JenBee

    Couldn’t watch it. Can’t stand either of the Obamas. Flipping through stations with the mute button on, looking at her, she looks so freakin’ ANGRY all the time… could only think two things the whole time watching her: 1) I wonder if she’s no longer proud of this country since her husband and Romney are polling neck-and-neck, and 2) *CUE THE WOOKIE ROAR!!!*

  • Master T

    At least the President doesn’t have any bank accounts in Cayman Islands and Switzerland like Mr. Romney.

    obama is a goner, folks. We can do it, yes we can!!

    At least Mr. Romney knows how to balance the books and not add 5.3 Trillion dollars to a debt.

    Truly, folks. Did too few wake up too late? How to gain a foothold in the msm because we’re in full blown propaganda mode and it is terrifying. We can be as snarky as we like, but they hold the bull horn and reach the masses. And while our voices are growing louder and stronger, we are facing Goliath.

  • Sarah

    #18 – It’s called having a blind trust. Look it up. And while you’re at it, you may be interested to learn that many Democratic leaders also have off shore accounts. Likely because they have blind trusts as welll. Move on.

  • Sarah

    #2 – OMG! You nailed it. You put into words what I often sense about her performances.

  • JenBee

    #21 Sarah, yep, I agree totally… we clearly have the better message, but without the media to ACCURATELY convey it, I fear we’re lost.

  • sablegsd

    “At least the President doesn’t have any bank accounts in Cayman Islands and Switzerland like Mr. Romney.”

    Why in the world would you think that? Because he says he doesn’t?
    That’s hilarious. He and his fugly beard lie every time they open their big fat mouths.

    And who cares? Romney earned his money and he can keep it wherever he wants. ovomit on the other hand, has been bleeding the taxpayers dry. If you really think billions “got lost” during the green energy scam you are pretty damn gullible.

    #24 – 2010 was won DESPITE the media. It was done primarily through email.

    If people cannot mobilize for this and risk ticking off a few family members and friends for the sake of our kids and grandkids, we deserve to be.

    And when Bush and company thought that the amnesty was gonna be an easy win, do you remember that? Email did that tooo.

    We have that 16 Trillion video clip. And there are a couple of ads EWTN put togehter that are masterful.

    People can risk ticking off family. It’s for their own good. Just tell everyone to send to 7 people. Period.

    “SCHTRUGGLING” is not yet found in my Funk & Wagnalls. Neither are any of her other “SCHT,” words, when clearly she means “ST”.

    Funny, she’s alleged to have a law degree, but she couldn’t seem to master second grade diction.

    Yawn… Bubba had Lewinsky, Oblunder his Sinclair, while the Dims honor Chappaquiddick Ted and celebrate late term abortion as “choice”, rather than what it all is; the (suspicious) body counts and money trails that thread through (just) the Dims recent history, from LBJ to the Kennedys, to the Clintons to the Obamanation are giant, in-your-face dots and a pattern easily connected (unless you like to play the fool); several trillion later the mafia look small-time compared to this Democrat Party criminal syndicate. while “less than 24 hours before their “Jumah at the DNC” was held, nervous officials at the Host Committee quietly removed it from the list of officially” sanctioned Muslim Brotherhood jihad activities… Democrats have forfeited our obligation to treat them with respect on any kind of personal level in the future, regardless of whether they succeed in stealing the next election thru some variety of voter fraud…

  • Debra

    Did anyone notice she left out the tidbit that Barack’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was the first female vice president of the Bank of Hawaii? That’s how Barack’s private school tuition was paid. She was the breadwinner of the family. The picture FLOTUS painted is a bit distorted. Google it.

    My hats off to the 1ST Lady she did a great job. Krauthammer is a freaky Volkon get him off TV please. I’m voting to get affordable health care and protect my family’s investment into Social Security that 11 of us have been paying into for over 40 yrs. I’m not a millionaire nor do I make over $250,000 a year. I only want affordable health care and to protect our National Safety Net. Romney / Ryan want to dismantle health care and steal our safety net. I’m baffled by all the BS people argue over when it’s so simple.

  • RedstateRed

    How many hats are you wearing, Gotti?
    One for each brain cell?

    Affordable health care. You have no idea how expensive that free health care is going to be.

    Oh, I dunno Charles. I bought this line: “Being president doesn’t change who you are p it REVEALS who you are.”


    Being president certainly revealed Barack Obama for who and what he actually is.

  • mg4us

    Michelle said:
    But see when — when Barack started telling me about his family,
    see now that’s when I knew I’d found in him a kindred spirit.
    Someone whose values and upbringing were so much like mine.

    Read more:

    Yes a kindred hater of America, the one you were not proud of, the one Barack’s Mom said “These are not MY People” (p47 Obama’s: Dreams From My Father)

    You brought Obama to the Church of Black Liberation Theology – -Jeremiah “GD-America” Wright

    Michele also said:
    We learned about honesty and integrity. That the truth
    matters. That you don’t take shortcuts are played by your own
    set of rules.

    And success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and

    Keep Talking Angry Big Mama. . That is why Obama has paid OVER $2MM to hide his records . . .and was inexperienced, Inept and incompetent in all he did

    But the worse was in the beginning when she said:
    And, I’ve seen it in our men and women in uniform and our proud military families.

    In wounded warriors who tell me they are not just going to walk again,
    they are going to run and they are going to run marathons.

    In the young men blinded by a bomb in Afghanistan who said simply, “I’d give my eyes and 100 times again to have the chance to do what I have done, and what I can still do”.

    These are bald face lies and why she shakes her head no when she speaks these words rather than the affirmative nod . .
    The men and women in uniform sacrifice while Obama plays golf and jets off on another fun-raiser. .
    And Obama wanted to deny them their pay if there was a government shutdown but not the payola for welfare queens. . . sickening

    For the glorious Obama past she speaks fondly of see:
    2016: Obama’s America

    I tried to watch her. .

    O/T, but more of the same ilk as that August page of the obama calendar. More comparisons of you-know-who (can’t say them in the same sentence) to the Son of God:

  • Finncrisp

    The Ghandi thing is quite an insult. His life of sacrifice and self denial is not even close to the lifestyle chosen by the Obamas. Exatly when did Barry do anything that was Ghandi like?

    Barry is the second coming of FDR and they want us to think that Bush is the second coming of Herbert Hoover. Not buying that one, not ever…

  • mg4us

    I just got this via email and wanted to share with all of you:

    Lawyers? …. Barack and Michelle
    I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn’t
    know why until I read this.
    I checked it out at
    which stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois, and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony.)

    Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.
    Big surprise.
    Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and U.S. President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

    Consider this:
    1. President Barack Obama , former editor of the Harvard Law Review , is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

    A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

    2 Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!

    3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

    4. A senior lecturer is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Chicago ..

    5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school – but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

    6. “He did not hold the title of Professor of Law or even Assistant Professor of Law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law . Source:;

    7. The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the U.S. Constitution during his State of the Union Address . Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence …. not the Constitution .

    8. The Broadcast posted the video:

    9. Free Republic : In the State of the Union Address , President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal.

    10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a ‘notion’; our founders named them unalienable rights .
    The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    11. And this is the same President who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech?

    When you are a phony, it’s hard to keep facts straight.

  • RA

    As an independent I’m always put off by the religious fervor of their beliefs as Liberals or Conservatives. What a bunch hypocrites. The Bush tax cuts to wealthy with two unfunded wars where he got out the US credit car and doubled the deficit and then left the wreck to for the next president to inherit. (How that trickle down work for all of you?)
    The Liberals think that we can spend our way out of the problems – not remotely possible. 33% of the US budget is now interest payments – we’re paying the Chinese to buy our bonds.
    Enact the Bowles-Simpson, tax increases-spending cuts. People need to start paying for their gov’t services, we don’t need to have a defense budget larger than the next 13 countries combined, and the super-rich need to go back to paying more – stop punishing the middle class.

    It would be interesting to know just how many times Barack Obama lectured on Constitutional law. To me, it sounded like he guest lectured at least once in somebody else’s class. I’m accustomed to the person who has actual responsibility for teaching the whole semester as the “professor.” A “lecturer” is somebody the professor pulls in on a specific day.

    RA commented:

    You do realize that we were attacked on the scale of Pearl Harbor on September 11, right? That those wars were not a whim on the part of the President, and that BOTH parties supported BOTH actions right up to the first few casualties in Iraq, right? And that the Democratic House appropriated far more money for those wars than was requested?

    And that there is a disconnect between tax rates and the resulting revenues? And that revenues increased during the Bush administration, despite the loss of about 1M jobs due to the 9/11 attacks?

    Some of us were paying attention when all of this happened. That’s how a lot of us former Democratic voters wound up supporting George W. Bush the second time around.

    All I’m saying is, you can always find hostile people who will exaggerate to the point of lying about the other guy. You can help fix that situation. When you encounter a “news” article that goes to far, let ’em know at the source. That’s getting to be easier and easier to do all the time.

  • #38…you think democrats protect social security? social security benefits have been cut twice that i know of, once by bill bradley with the pension windfall act the other time by bill clinton when he taxed social security benefits. please tell me when republicans have reduced social security benefits.

    democrats will pay as attention to the substance of this speech as they did to obama’s “magnificent” speeech on civility in arizona.

  • Indiana

    I thought her speech was “borderline” hysterical. An impassioned plea of “don’t take away my slush fund for travel, my jets, my pretty house.” The Obama’s are talented and gifted people, too bad they waste it on everything detrimental to America. They could accomplish great things if they took their show on the road to some communist country. Their ideas just don’t mesh with American Ideals.

  • owl

    From 2006 to 2009, I use to ask ‘can we call him scary yet?

    Yep. I believe he exceeded my expectations on the things we know, and it is too far beyond scary to think about what he has done that we do not know.

    Now Michelle gets up there and immediately starts lying, beautifully and with such emotion. That is almost terrifying. She lied about their roots.

    She dug Grandma up, dusted off her bones, and placed her in the dearly beloved chair. After the things we read and heard Obama say about the poor woman. Obama couldn’t stand her and her whiteness, even though she was the one working and helping him. He certainly did not write a book about Granny.

    The Obamas lie as natural as liars.

    Then I watch Ed Rollins on FOX this morning almost kiss the ground she walks on with praise. Yep. Same Ed Rollins that could not keep his smug face off tv trashing Clint’s.

    CALLING ROMNEY CAMP…………………..GET ED ROLLINS OFF. Fire him. Shut him up.

    When you are fighting lying liars, somebody better get in this game quick. Yep. You must call them the LIARS, promoted by LIARS (called Scoopers). They started this ‘liars’ campaign under Bush and we just sat like lumps.

  • #58 owl… here’s how smart ed rollins is. he ran tom kean’s campagin for governor in new jersey. after the election smart ed tells the media a big factor in our successful campaign was that it was the first time we had “street money” to pay people not to vote.

She must have said “shtruggled” at least 30 times (not to mention “deshtroy, shtrong, shtreet”). She told us what a great guy her husband is… yet he doesn’t have the self-discipline to get off his drug (nicotine) to be an example to his children? As a previous blogger wrote, we’re in “full propaganda mode” now. I’m so disillusioned w/our politicians, on both sides. Ronald Reagan, where are you?
