Michelle: Give Something Back

In case you missed it, first lady Michelle Obama, spoke at the graduation of California's smallest and youngest public institution. Her message to the graduating seniors was an urge for them to give something back to their community.

"Many of you may be considering leaving town with your diploma in hand, and it wouldn't be unreasonable. By using what you've learned here you can shorten the path perhaps for kids who may not see a path at all. I was once one of those kids," she said. "Remember that you are blessed. Remember that in exchange for those blessings, you must give something back. You must reach back and pull someone up. You must bend down and let someone else stand on your shoulders so that they can see a brighter future."

Give as she says, not as she gives.

In 2000 through 2004, Barack Obama and his wife gave $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned to charities. Less than 1 percent, for those of you who were reaching for a calculator.

Maybe that's because Michelle O wasn't "proud" of her country back then. Or maybe it's because, like most democrats, what she says doesn't match up very well with what she does.

Just ask Turbo Tax Tim Geithner, who wants to catch tax cheats.

'Nother Bravo.

Please never stop pointing out the incongruity of the splendid stupidity of the autocratic Left.
