| Krauthammer on Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech: ‘I Didn’t Buy a Line of It’ |
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer was not convinced by first lady Michelle Obama’s widely-praised speech at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night, saying he “didn’t buy a line of it.”
The speech began with an account of the couple’s early life, progressing to the modern day. Michelle fondly recalled the rusted car her husband first picked her up in, and how they owed more in student loans than they did for their mortgage. She discussed their parents and grandparents, and the hardships they faced so their children could have better lives.
“I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all of our sons and daughters, and if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise…if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility – that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if you’re willing to work for it…then we must work like never before,” she told a roaring crowd.

But what of the rest of the speeches? Did Democrats, for instance, do a good job of refuting the commonly-held idea that they believe the government is the center of society? |
“They spoke endlessly of spending on this, spending on that…government doing x, government doing y, as a way to achieve what they think needs to be achieved…I think if anything it reinforced the notion that they are completely government-centered in their understanding of society.”
