Is the first lady playing politics or does she really care?

Posted on: April 13, 2011

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are on a five-city tour to showcase communities, businesses and nonprofits that support military families – big whoop.

They are headed to Denver, Colorado to be at Coors Field to watch the baseball game between the Colorado Rockies and the Mets on a big screen T.V. This stop is by invitation only and it seems only military families will be participating.

I suppose that Michelle Obama decided to do this because her husband will be up for reelection next year and of course wants to show the country how much they care about military families. This “Joining Forces” initiative was her concept and one of her many causes she has undertaken.  She also has taken causes by telling us how to raise our children, what to feed them and now standing up with the military. Sounds like disjointed causes to me.

Also this seems rather disingenuous because just late last week, her husband, President Obama, was willing to shut down the government and not pay our military families. Our military and their families know that this is just another P.R. ploy and not taking this seriously.  Today he will be talking about cutting the deficit and probably will want deep cuts to our military. That’s how much he really cares about our military and their families.

Please don’t play politics with our military and their families. They need our genuine support and not a P.R. stunt by any politician or their spouses.

You are so right in that Obama and Michelle will say and do anything to get elected. He has told so many lies and broken so many promises already.
