First Lady Michelle Obama Delivers Keynote Address At The CBC Foundation Dinner

UPDATED with full video:

You can watch First Lady Michelle Obama deliver the full keynote address here. on C-Span.  FLOTUS spoke of the photo  below that hangs in the White House, and how kids who come to the White House don’t give it a second thought, because they have grown up in an age where they have an African American President.  It’s all they ‘ve experienced up until this point.  I know that’s right!

Thank you, SouthernGirl2 for the graphic!

    First lady: Voting rights is ‘movement of our era’
    Source: AP via KHOU

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama says protecting the right to vote has become the nation’s most important civil rights issue.

    The first lady tells a gathering of black lawmakers and leaders that they owe it to those who fought and died for equal rights in the 1960s to make sure every voter can freely cast a ballot.

    Her comments at an annual awards banquet for the Congressional Black Caucus come amidst a push in more than a dozen states to pass laws requiring voters to show ID at the polls. Critics say the laws unfairly harm minorities, poor people and college students — all groups that tend to vote Democratic.

    SNL Mocks Romney, Fox News In Special Election Edition Spoof

    In a special Thursday election segment of “Saturday Night Live”, the late-night comedians took aim at Mitt Romney’s recently revealed disparaging remarks against the 47 percent of Americans who don’t pay income taxes, and the “Fox and Friends” coverage of the Republican candidate.

    Jason Sudeikis, playing Romney, said in a slightly altered clip that when he refers to that 47 percent of Americans who will never vote for him, he doesn’t mean senior citizens, U.S. soldiers or southern whites. He means black people.

    our First Lady is wonderful.

    she is such a fabulous representative for this country.

  8. vitaminlover says:

    Yes indeed. I remember in 2008 that they emphasized the same thing about getting out and voting.

    • Ametia says:

      And these CBC members really need to get with the 21st century, and understand that the old mentality of thinking the white man’s ice water is colder will keep them from serving their constituency, instead of just themselves.

    My First Lady got to the point!
