Obama Girls Steal the Show

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Political Reporter and Mom Ronda Kaysen gives us her favorite moments from the Democratic Convention.

The Obama girls stole the show at the Democratic Convention last night when they turned up at the end of their mom's speech to tell their daddy, "We love you." Seven-year-old Sasha gave a glowing critique of her mom's performance, telling her dad -- who made an appearance over satellite from Kansas City -- "She did good."

It was Michelle Obama's night to introduce herself to America -- and she did. She stood before us last night as a mother, a wife and a daughter who is in this race, so that "your sons and daughters -- will tell their own children about what we did together in this election. They'll tell them how this time, we listened to our hopes, instead of our fears. How this time, we decided to stop doubting and to start dreaming," said Michelle during a particularly moving part of her speech.

All eyes are on Hillary Clinton now as pundits and anxious party members wring their hands and hope she can quell the angst in her ranks when she speaks tonight. Michelle gave Hillary a little introduction by celebrating the "18 million cracks in the glass ceiling"-- the votes for Hillary made during the primary. Some of those cracks have created rifts in the party, and it is unclear if her speech tonight will be seen as a swan song or a call to arms.

I am in love with the Obama Family - and they are a family in every sense of the word. What a wonderful thing to see children and parents loving one another so effortlessly. I am a registered Democrat, who wasn’t really into Obama, really becuase I didn’t know him. Well, screw gas prices and paying more taxes…I’m fine with it. I mean having a man this wonderful with children and family who care so deeply for one another sets a great example of everything good about our country. Obama - yes he can (and so can Michelle)!!!!!

The Obama kids are real cuties! It is a shame that their Mother Michelle Obama is a appears to be a racist. I’ll hand it to her, she is doing a good job making sure the her husband is seen as black enough! She really hurts his campaign in my eyes. I was braced to vote for Obama but now I’m not so sure.

I’m left to ponder. What ever happened to race should not matter? It didn’t to me. I wanted to vote for the best person for this nation but now I find myself wondering if the Obama family takes the White House whether my race will be neglected or left behind.

I’m tired of hearing black or white just tell me what you can do to help my family!

Yes, Obama’s little girls are adorable. And, he has a good family unit. But, can you really base your decision to vote for him on just that? Do you know what kind of “changes” Obama plans on making for America? They’re not good. No, I don’t want to pay more taxes and No, I don’t want to pay high gas prices. I’m sick of having to dish out more than a thousand dollars to the government every month for taxes. It’s insane! Obama’s plan will double the amount of money coming out of my check. I want lower taxes and lower gas prices. The Republicans have a plan to help America accomplish this. That is why I am voting Republican this year. Watch the Republican Convention and you’ll see their plan to really make some changes. GOOD CHANGES.
