A voice of one calling in the desert

Everyone by now is becoming familiar with Michelle Obama's view of life in America...

To recap:

A modern day prophetess, she is a voice of one calling in the desert -- a desolate land of immense struggle we call America.

An America in which you don't live with the audacity of hope, you just try to muster...


The Audacity of Cope

UPDATE: WELCOME Mark Steyn readers! And thank you, Mr. Steyn. You have been very gracious, indeed! (If you would like a little story of Mr. Steyn’s graciousness, you can go here, keep scrolling!)

UPDATE: Don Surber finds that the Obamas live in John Edwards's America. He points to Jack Kelly who quotes Michelle as saying: “We spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements. And summer programs… Do you know what summer camp costs?”

I honestly have no idea how she copes. Only a five-figure budget for her kids' extracurricular activities? It's audacious.

(And thank you Mr. Surber for the link!)


  1. I just saw the "Tears for Me" bit. Amusement level elevated.

  2. You're really criticizing someone for spending money on their children to make them well rounded adults in the making?

    There are plenty of children whose parents spend much more than $5,000 per child every year on unnecessary material things which aren't the slightest bit mentally stimulating or character building.

    Long before they were presidential parents, they had money like this to spend on their children so what's the problem now?
