She’s Almost as Smart as Joe Biden


Harvard-educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees at a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America . The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence , “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”

Excuse me? Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America ?  Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia .  John Adams was born in Massachusetts . Only eight of the 56 were not born in America .
Surely she knew this.  But, then again, maybe not.  After all, she is a Harvard graduate. Isn’t she?

As John Wayne said “Life’s tough. It’s tougher when you’re stupid!!”

About Jim G.

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
