    I’ve been in a conference all day and just watched FLOTUS’s speech. I don’t have the words to describe it. She moved me to tears listening to this. That speech was one for the history books. She is simply phenomenal.

      My son just forwarded the link to Michelle’s NH speech to his sister and us. Could not love her more!

      Donna, I was just about to post a similar reaction to FLOTUS’ speech. There were tears streaming down my face as she reached out and grabbed our hearts, reflecting every feeling of outrage, every fear for our children that all of us have thanks to the the hideous Donald. I hope this speech is quoted again and again in the next few weeks and I hope we see it made into a series of powerful ads by the Clinton campaign. Michelle Obama is easily one of the finest orators in the country and will rank as one of the finest First Ladies in our history.

      My sister called and told me I need to listen to FLOTUS’ speech, that it was the greatest speech she’s ever heard… I told her I always listen to our Michelle- but missed her today. So must find the video now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just returned from seeing Pres. Bill Clinton at Cornell College in nearby Mount Vernon, IA. We always try to see these great Democratic surrogates that come thru Iowa during this election cycle and we feel so privileged they consider it important to talk to us. They are so superior to those from the other side. We even got interviewed by the U of I student newspaper about our opinions. ๐Ÿ™‚

      She has been the most effective speaker from day one and even before she became First Lady. Her “We are not afraid” speech from the first campaign is one for the history books.
      Just finished listening to the NH speech on the previous thread: too many emotions to adequately express. Michelle Lavaugh Robinson Obama: daughter of Fraser and Marian Robinson, Lawyer and Warrior who speaks words that fork lightning that the deplorables fear and words that bring the blessings of cooling rains to those who look for truth; Beloved First and only wife of President Barack Hussein Obama, mother of Malia and Sasha and the FLOTUS. Long may she live and thrive.

          Hilarious, wasn’t it? I just read where the campaign shut down a livestream when Trump was asked about the sexual assault allegations. He would destroy the First Amendment for the first time in our history; yet millions will vote for him. Disgusting.

          I thought that politicians and celebrities were not able to sue for libel due to being open to public scrutiny. Is that incorrect?

        So does that mean Hillary and Bill Clinton can sue Fox, Rush Limpballs, and all the people who had shows about his affairs? Because if anyone who talks about DT’s affairs and sexual harassment of women can be sued then Bill can sue Fox and anyone who talks about his….

    The quickly growing Black Lives Matter movement is getting support through a new collaboration with the International Development Exchange, a social justice group that has supported similar movements for decades.

    #BlackLivesMatter is strengthening its powerโ€”in the back office.

    This week, the Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLM) announced it was partnering with the International Development Exchange (IDEX) to help support its rapid growth and future goals.

    IDEX will provide fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other staff and administrative services to BLM. In addition, as a 501(c)(3) public charity, IDEX can receive grants and tax-deductible donations and gifts on behalf of BLM.

    By turning management of its financial affairs over to IDEX, BLM says, it can focus on building local chapters and its overall organizational structure. BLM has agreed to make a donation in support of IDEXโ€™s grassroots partners in Zimbabwe and South Africa, in lieu of paying an administrative fee for the charityโ€™s support.

    American and for that matter, the World has been blessed to have Michelle and Barack show us what a President and First Lady really does. They personify compassion, intelligence, kindness, empathy, love, warmth, humor & truth as leaders of the free world.

    Whew!, I’m so glad they are our very first black President and First Lady. They’ve set the bar very high for the next President & First Lady or Gentleman of any race, creed, color, or sexuality.

      GM Claire.

      Late responding to you, but after Merrick Garland is approved during Congress’ lame duck session next month, keeping my fingers crossed that Loretta Lynch is HRC’s first SCOTUS nominee.

      Agree with CEB that Michelle’s vision is GLOBAL and after 8 years as FLOTUS, has real clout in countries across the world — would be selfish to limit her potential here at home. The world NEEDS Michelle Obama and Jill Biden.

      Loretta Lynch is simply amazing — her backstory, her soothing yet commanding voice, her fierce pursuit for Justice. IMHO, she deserves a seat on SCOTUS (and very soon, I hope).

    I cannot stress enough how important it was for the First Lady of our land to speak out against sexual predatory behavior and its poster boy. Her words will help with healing the physic wounds that have opened up again for so many who have suffered and survived this kind of abuse.

    Morning from my world – wow wow and wow. I have to go out shortly – but stopped by the intertubes and Michelle Obama’s speech is all over it – The US got the lot when they voted for her husband – this is powerful. I’ll follow her lead & not mention the name but he could get below 20% after this one.

    I’d like to thank everyone on TOD – mentioning of course, NW & Chips – but also everyone else for introducing me to the best POTUS and FLOTUS the world has ever seen. You may all sleep peacefully for the love and support you have given this exceptional couple.

    Blessings – back later

      So, if she’s been living on the public dole, and that’s a bad thing … then why is he opting to live on the public dole for 4 years? Plus not paying taxes, which means living on the public dole. Yes, let this be over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • October 13, 2016 at 8:48 pm

      They act as if she’s the only one who voted for the war. That she could single-handedly pass bills to create jobs; repair the infrastructure, etc. She is the only SoS under which there have been attacks on embassies…that resulted in fatalities. That the SOP under which she operated was so vastly different than that of prior SoS’s.

      They act as if she’s the only politician — individual even — who has a public view and a private view. Most of us do.

      But just as FLOTUS said, HRC never blames anyone else (when she probably could).
