What should be on the top of her husband's agenda is worrying about the needs of Americans not the needs of foreign nationals. Shove it, Michelle. We have a 9% unemployment rate that your husband has done little to touch. Address that and that alone. I swear I'm a Dem and I'm just sick of my party's pandering on this issue. The Latino community is not entitled to endless spots for American citizenship.

Are you saying Mrs. Obama is racist? Who she racist against...Her 1/4 white children or 1/2 white husband?

She was telling the audience (Univision viewers) what they wanted to hear, something everybody even remotely involved with politics is guilty of.

And who elected her to represent anyone anyhow? She needs to shut her mouth and do her job as first lady - lead tours at the White House, host tea for wives of visiting foreign dignitaries, smile and wave at the camera, etc.

Well, when we elect the President, his wife is part of the deal.

Yet, we were promised CHANGE. She shouldnít pander to any ethnic group; it only serves to divide. She is supposed to be the First Lady of the nation, not the First Lady for illegal alien apologist Hispanics.

playing devil's advocate here: What non-incumbent presidential candidate runs on the platform of "more of the same"?

I agree. No ethnic groups should be pandered to. Marking our divisions only keeps us divided.
