    Being President does not change who you are…it reveals who you are

    When I hear Michele Obama speak, I am touched to the point of weeping. That’s all I can say. Her statement: “Becoming president doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are.”

    Tough call, but as good as Deval Patrick’s speech was, Michelle Obama’s is better #msnbc2012′

    Michelle is… un-be-lie-va-ble. Words fail. I think she just won the election for Barack. And yes I feel like calling him Barack after that incredible speech. Goosebumps. My God.

    This woman really had me at 63 plus years old, in total tears. It was the most personally touching and most powerfully patriotic American speech I have ever heard. She explained in her own and the President’s story what it means to be an American, it means to live your life for your children and all children. Even if you don’t attain your personal dreams, you continue to strive and stretch so that the generations to come will have a better life. As the grandson of immigrants, the first generation to have a college degree, she connected entirely with my story. As a parent and grandparent she connects with me and the motivations in my life.

    One of my fav lines: Barack knows that when you walk through the door of opportunity you do not slam it back. No…you reach back and pull others with you.”
