If you missed it, here's Michelle Obama

My dad owned a small business for over 30 years, and he told me that I should refrain from talking politics or religion with customers. Normally, I would agree with him, but with all the misinformation that continues to float around the internet about Barack and Michelle Obama, I cannot just sit by without trying to stop the spread of rumor and innuendo, and replace the distorted (highly edited) clips with unedited clips. How better to get to know someone than to actually listen to that person's story first hand rather than through someone else's eyes?

The "right" has done a good job of painting the Obama's as un-American. I believe that if you take the time to actually get to know these guys, and listen to what they have to say, then you will see that they have a lot more in common with you than you may currently recognize. The Obama's aren't nearly as "scary" as you might think. I know how worried I was driving our son and daughter home from the hospital (see Michelle's remark near the end of the speech). Can't you relate? And checkout the smile on Barack's face and pride in his eyes when he sees his girls, you can't fake that smile? That's a father's smile at his kids. Now, I know for sure, that you can relate.

And if after you watch, you decide that you're now a Mama for Obama or a Pop for Barack, then Sandbox Threads has the shirt for you (well, a shirt for your little Obama supporter that is). And if you still support the other guy, we do have a Republican Elephant design that you might like, but watch again just to make sure.
