What exactly does she mean by wrong people?
From the PJ Tatler:
The first lady tried to enlist “Families for Obama” at an event with tickets starting at $500 a pop at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Friday.
The pool reporter estimated that there were a couple dozen kids in the audience of about 350, and Michelle Obama spent much of her speech talking to them.
“I mean, I can’t tell you in the last election how many grandparents I ran into who said, I wasn’t going to vote for Barack Obama until my grandson talked to me, until my great-grandson talked to me, and talked about the future he wanted for this country,” she said.
“You can get out there with your parents. You guys can knock on doors. I had one young lady who brought me a petition — she’s already working. You can convince wrong people. Sometimes we don’t listen to ourselves, but we will listen to our children.”
If your five-year-old needs to convince you of some sort of previously unseen wisdom in President Obama’s policies, then you have to ask yourself two questions: Just how brilliant can a man be who only appeals to underdeveloped minds? And how bright can I be if I have to rely on a child to guide my decision making when voting for the future of America?
Via Breitbart News:
This is a hallmark of leftist campaigning – the notion that children possess some sort of inherent wisdom to which their elders must heed. It’s insulting and ridiculous, but it’s also the same sort of electioneering that got Obama elected the first time. But during the 2008 election cycle, President Obama hadn’t yet sold out future generations to finance his world-remaking vision. The good news for the Chicago Obamas is that many of these children’s grandparents and great-grandparents may be voting Obama – whether or not they’re alive to do so.
Isn’t it funny how two groups – children and Democrats – that both believe in fantasies and unrealistic utopias, that both believe in the land of unicorns and lollipops, would both be on a mission to get out the vote for President Obama?
