  • Michelle Obama’s full speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention

    Politics aside, Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic convention was an absolute masterpiece.

    Intelligent, articulate and gracious, above all didn't see the need to resort to denigration, mockery or insult.

    Agreed, scripted or not it had a balance of humility, empathy, critical thinking and a tiny dose of innuendo all delivered with clarity, rhythm and timing, love a great speaker. Probably why Melania copied Michelle's previous speech.

      As her husband said in his speech at the DNC "Don't boo, vote". I think the rest of the world is hoping the voters of the US do the right thing.

        Would You Rather Have a Beer With Clinton or Trump? - Rasmussen Reports™

        Polls are what they are, but I always liked the beer poll. Difficult call this year with all the previous years Clinton "experiences" that would be worthy of beer discussion, but I think Donny may be the better company at the bar?

          I tried not to be political in my OP, simply wanted to draw attention to the quality of Michelle's speech, I suspect the thread will be closed if we resort to political comment.

            Cheers Yelta, If it gets closed Will it be back to bacon and eggs then? That certainly got a few going!

              My only interest in politics is observational. A social beer with mates (sorry for the political incorrectness) is one of my (is my) favourite shirks. Please lets not bring serious politics into it. Light hearted commentary was my only intention with posting the poll URL. Sorry in advance if it gets too serious.

                Perhaps not Dr Dave, the number 1 bacon brand on my quest Pialligo, suffered a setback last week, smoke house burned down, bugger.

                Bet there were some enticing aroma's in the air during the conflagration.

                  Come now. I'm afraid you've already opened that Pandora's box but the responses so far have been quite measured (including mine. )
                  Just to keep it light, surely you wouldn't commence a thread on how much you enjoyed your bacon and eggs this morning and not expect comments from others about how they like their eggs done or which brand of bacon they prefer or it wouldn't be a proper breakfast without grilled tomato or baked beans or sourdough?

                    Your right of course.

                    As a matter of interest I'm a bacon and egg purist, bacon with 2 eggs sunnyside up on 2 slices of buttered toast, none of this grilled tomato, baked beans or sourdough rubbish for me.

                      Couldn't agree more. She also has a beguiling femininity about her, along with the charm, warmth and intellect. The line about her being a black woman raising her children in a house built by slaves sent a shiver up my spine.

                      Obama married well. I hope we see and hear a lot more from Michelle during the race to November.
