This means Freepers had to try extra hard to find stuff wrong. Michelle Obama's ordinary speech meant there had to be some pretty awesome reaching. This is a long one, but it is hilarious:
patriotspride noticed something:
Anyone else notice that Michelle didn't Thank her Mom in her speech?
Didn't hear any of the pundits comment on this last night.
All it would have taken was six words, Thank You Mom, I Love You.
Opportunity of a lifetime to honor the person who raised and cared for you, gave you a great video intro, and you missed it.
Shame on you Michelle.
Not much to say to that. The nit picking stridency speaks for itself.
Speaking of mountains and molehills...ichabod1 is sure he unearthed the Michelle Obama's secret racist beast through his careful study of body language:
She looked low-key, nice smile (though her teeth are too big for her mouth), reticent, first-ladyish, avoided the ebonics... her appearance was just what they’ve been wanting it to be. But she continually shook her head while she talked, which has the effect of negating everything she was saying.
I think it must have been really difficult for her to get up there and do a dog and pony for whitey like that. Very difficult.
Wow. ichabod1 clearly knows the real Obama. And I'm sure the worry about ebonics means nothing about your general views about black people.
Then there was the dress, as pointed out by redstates4ever
Michelle having a nice figure is one thing. But am I the only one who thinks the clingy cocktail dress is inappropriate and hoochie-mama-ish for the occasion?
"hoochie-mama?" Yeah...race has nothing to do with it.
driftdiver totally echoes this awesome point:
This event is to officially choose the dem candidate for President. She could be the next first lady. Its not a cocktail party.
For me it shows a continued lack of respect for this country and its traditions.
The dress in question?
But my favorite tactic of all is DooDahhhh:
You are admirable for listening to this tripe. I turn the tv off when her or his mugs appear. I have had enough already.
The reality! It buuurns!
