• Her Turn: Michelle Obama Apologizes For America In U.N. Speech

    If you missed it, there was a lot of America bashing going on today in front of the United Nations General Assembly.

    Continuing the apology tour he started six years ago, President Obama told the crowd of world leaders he understands that “America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times, we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within our own borders. This is true.”

    And in a despicable exercise in moral equivalence, Obama said “In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.”

    But not to be outdone, Michelle Obama told a crowd at a United Nations education event that the U.S. is a desert of depression and oppression for American women.

    “Women here are still woefully underrepresented in our government and the senior ranks of corporations. We still struggle with violence against woman and harmful cultural norms that tell woman how they are expected to look and act.”

    This is the same woman who accidentally admitted that she wasn’t proud of America until her husband was elected president.

    Nevertheless, Michelle Obama should be absolutely ashamed of herself. She has been tremendously blessed, beyond belief, her entire adult life.

    Michelle Obama is Ivy League educated, she is a former hospital administrator (where she made more than her then-state senator husband, Barack), and is now one of the most powerful women in the world.

    Michelle Obama and her two daughters aren’t forced to live a life of misery in the same way that girls and women in Islamic countries are. Michelle and the Obama girls can drive and where whatever they want–luxuries and basic freedoms that millions of women around the world can’t exercise.

    For crying out loud, the Obama girls’ school tuition cost more per semester than the average American makes in salary in an entire year.

    So as far as I’m concerned, Michelle (and Barack) Obama can take her apologies for America and shove them. Because despite her husband’s best efforts to destroy it, America is still the greatest place on earth for a person to live and freely pursue his or HER dreams.
