“If you’re a Democrat, spend some time talking to a Republican”

Posted by on May 12, 2013 at 8:36 am

Such helpful advice to the close-minded bigots on the left.

First lady Michelle Obama urged Eastern Kentucky University graduates on Saturday night to reach out to people with different political beliefs, saying the country would benefit from the conversations.

“If you’re a Democrat, spend some time talking to a Republican,” Mrs. Obama told about 600 education, business and technology graduates at the third and final commencement ceremony of the day. “And if you’re a Republican, have a chat with a Democrat. Maybe you’ll find some common ground, maybe you won’t.”

And if you don’t just sic the IRS on them and call them names. It’s worked like a charm so far, huh?

A campus group took potshots at Obama administration policies ahead of Mrs. Obama’s visit, handing out fliers bemoaning the challenging job prospects for the new graduates.

“Good luck landing your first job,” said the flier from the EKU chapter of Young Americans for Liberty. “Only 47 percent of you will be able to find a job in your preferred field, so I hope you’re still on good terms with your parents.”

Ouch.

    Oh my goodness, Mrs. First Lady, so you are the one who comments under RiehlWorldNews, Pajamas Media, Gateway Pundit, Weasel Zippers, Ace, Hot Air, JWF, etc., etc. asking, under the internet screen name of Amanda Marcott, what the conservative position is on the topic of the day. Oh, that’s not you, your Ladyship? Never mind.
