Michelle's Political Focus- do you agree?

Her focus is on military families.....

Do you think she should shift her focus to something else? Are there more important things?

  • She needs to pick another cause, I am a military wife, who's husband is currently deployed, the sympathy 'wouldn't  mean crap to me, when her own husbands gonna cut military funding. How can she act as if she knows what we go throw on a daily basis and some of us have children who have disabilities. Its not a cake walk when you have your husband called off to war, but we deal with it. Thank God for family and friend who help each of us with our disabled child.

  • She made these publicized trips to military bases but only Anti-Bush wives were allowed to attend. She was a joke.

  • I think its a great idea for her to put her attention towards Military families! There are alot of problems with our country that she could focus on- such as: education, families of children with disabilities, displaced families due to natural disasters, the hungry, etc. There are soooo many issues! But military families- I feel do not get as much support as they should. These families send thier loved ones to fight for us, and then they are just kind of left to wait and see if thier loved ones come back home to them. They can use all the support that can be offered!

  • to ask if there are more important things is definitely going to get the OP a wide variety of answers: as to defining what is important in this country has become a relative term for all.

  • I for one am really glad. I think military families get shoved to the back. Even just being recognized as a whole is a good thing. The fact that she sees a problem and is trying to make it public... even if she doesn't make changes I'm glad that military families are her initial focus

    As far as inviting only anti-bush families... I think that's reasonable. Have you EVER seen a rally full of ppl that DIDN'T support the politician? They all do that...I don't know if she had private meetings with ppl who didn't support Obama, but I would hope she did. Regardless, if she's trying to make changes- it will effect ALL military families... even the ones who don't support Obama. Thats good enough for me.

    p.s. I'm a military wife!
