Laura's E-Blast - August 8, 2008
Posted by Staff
OBAMA'S AMERICA-- NOT-SO-GREAT
At a townhall event in Indiana this week, a 7-year-old girl stood up and asked Sen. Obama why he's running for president. This simple question left him stammering: "America is --is no longer, uh-- what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, 'I don't want that future for my children.'" Profound. We need a president who thinks America is great now, and will continue to be regardless of any particular election's outcome.


IS MICHELLE SMARTER THAN A 7-YEAR-OLD?
In Norfolk, Virginia, Michelle Obama visited a 2nd grade class. Unfortunately for her, a wayward staffer neglected to vet the tots thoroughly. After they were asked what messages they wanted passed on to her husband, one student chirped: "I think we should finish what we started in Iraq." Michelle suddenly wished she was back on couch at The View. Watch video of the exchange here.
