Boo Hoo! Obama hopes he doesn't cry during wife's speech

By AP Staff

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama says he'll try not to let his daughters see him cry tonight as he watches the first lady's speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Obama calls Michelle Obama "the star of the Obama family" and says he gets "all misty" whenever she speaks.

Special Headline: Guess Who’s About To Go Bankrupt in America will Shock you

The president made the comments before a mostly African-American crowd at a campaign stop atNorfolk State University in Virginia a day before he plans to join the convention in Charlotte.

The first lady will make her case to millions of Americans on Tuesday when she headlines the convention's first night of speakers. She plans to draw a contrast between her husband and Republican Mitt Romney, telling middle-class voters that Obama understands their economic struggles because he has struggled too.

    I’ll bet he has troubles too. Michelle can’t be a shrinking violet married to Barack. It wouldn’t surprise me to know that she has a way to bring tears to his eyes.

      I watched her last night…what a bunch of BS…. Michelle threatened to divorce Obama if he didn’t get some sort of a job…in fact she had the papers drawn up, ready to file them…

      Obama went from benefactor to benefactor begging for money so he could get elected to something…”so she won’t dump me…!” he begged.

      A bunch of big money group, and a few high rollers decided he was just ripe for plucking…he could read a teleprompter pretty good, he would follow instructions, he would not disclosed who they were, he would surround himself with those he was told to hire, he would not try to be creative on his own…

      …he would push the Muslim and socialist agendas, and would begin the spread of Muslim law, and bypass the Constitution…and he would not disclose his entire background…

      Michelle was the perfect supervisor to govern his behaviors…Michelle is demanding, and forceful…Obama is her whimp….

      And worse of all…America is at risk …the Media is among our most frightening enemies…

      VOTE AMERICA…but vote for our survival…its time for us here at home to sacrifice…to call a lie a lie when these two speak…you will know when they are lying…its when they speak!

    i almost cried when i heard michelle obama in 2008 when she said we will MAKE people get involved. i felt the same when i read obama said in a televised a.b.c. interview, ‘michelle and i attended flag burning ceremonies.’ he also explained why michelle disrespects the american flag. i feel like crying every time i think about how obama is trying to destroy america.

    She’s going to talk about how great he is, and he will tear up. Why do I have no problem believing that? What an arrogant egotist.

    The only reason this maroon should be motivated to tears is when we show up with his subpoena for treasonous behavior. Might as well bring along the appropriate charges for her infractions of impersonating a first lady…

    Everytime I hear either of them speak I tear up but its caused by a gag reflex from holding back my vomit.

    Uhh … is she gonna say this is the ‘third’ time she has been proud of her country?

    I am really looking forward to the occasion when she says, “This is the last time I feel proud of my country … Goodbye.”

    So you are criticizing Obama for saying he might get a little emotional during his wife’s speech, but don’t seem bothered at all by John Boehner’s frequent weeping spasms or Scott Walker shedding a tear during Paul Ryan’s speech at the RNC?

    Why is that, I wonder?

      I have long been annoyed with John Boehner’s emotional outbursts, but Michelle and her husband destroying our country makes me want to cry.

      Let’s get real. Mrs. Oblamer was ready to divorce her megalomaniac, narcissistic, marxist-commie, America-hating husband before his 2008 bid for the POTUS. Like her husband, she is a racist, America-hating, marxist-commie who should be tried for complicity in her husband’s mission to destroy this country. They are both traitors and should be tarred, feathered, and put on a remote island in the Pacific somewhere with the rest of their commie-muslim cronies–with wild pigs running around.

    Lordy Lordy, If I wuz Obama I would be crying too. She has screwed up her speech every time she made one. These blunders kept her off stage for a long time. Me, I’m not interested.

      1. Obama will not be reelected Pres.
      2. He will be divorced within 3 yrs.

      Well, I wuz wrong. I did watch the speech and Michelle did a bang up job this time. It was a work of art and I am sure that the Democrats were highly impressed. I didn’t buy it. She was lookin good, motivational, & big smiles.
      Saw a lot of folks crying and conventional.
      Real good at double talk leads, i.e., once she feels like she has you its…it it, and and, to to, where where, a a, etc. If you listen to it again and here double talk lead say them yourself. You will find them frequent.
      Sorry Michelle, I didn’t believe you, but you did whut ya had to do.
