Two weeks ago, as reported in CNS: Michelle Obama: ‘My Husband Believes Strongly’ Getting Mental Health Treatment Is ‘Sign of Strength’ – MObama told an audience

…that her husband, President Barack Obama “believes strongly” that getting support and treatment for a mental health issue “isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength.”

“It’s time to tell everyone who’s dealing with a mental health issue that they’re not alone, and that getting support and treatment isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength,” said Mrs. Obama. “That’s something that my husband believes strongly as president, because in this country when you’re fighting an illness whether that’s mental or physical you should be able to get the help you need, end of story.”

She then went on with the usual clichés sales pitch for the wonderfulness of the ‘Affordable Care Act’ because everyone will get mental health care, etc etc.

And free depression screenings.


But then it got really weird.

Here is what she said: (starts @ 1:05)

…Let’s face it. Life can be stressful. Folks are faced with all kinds of challenges. They are stretched thin at work, their paychecks don’t stretch far enough. Millions struggle every day just to get by…. Many people in this country are fighting to put one foot in front of the other, just to make it through the day.

Hey, great job! Maybe you can deliver the speech again, at the ’16 GOP convention.

    To be fair, I’m grateful to the ACA for expanding my mental health coverage, thus providing me relief from the terrible stress I’ve experienced after the ACA boosted the premiums on my Anthem policy from $2000 to $5000.

    Sounds like a compulsion to confess to me.

    They want you to go to a mental health professional so as they can ban you from owning firearms.

    Anyone want to take bets that one or both of the Obamas are on some kind of SSRI med?

  5. Dave says:

    The mental health professionals in ACA will be the same kind of professionals that offered assistance in the re-education camps in Vietnam after we withdrew.

    Regarding, No Back Bench, of the Democrats for 2016, Obama’s policies are an #EpicFail responsible for that. Did any Governor trying to implement Ocare get kudos for their work? Not just the ‘success’ of Cover Oregon, but even the one(s) claimed (by liberal media) as acceptable (either Conn. or NH or both) were nothing to brag about. How about Colo. Gov. Hickenlooper taking Bloomberg & Dem. monies to implement gun control laws? A few recalls later, that’s a big fat No. How about a war hero? He/she could likely get the double I endorsement, Iran & ISIS. Maybe not a war hero. How about the Gov. since 2008 of a large heartland State, Missouri’s Gov. Jay Nixon. Obama’s not doing anything with Missouri is he? Oh yeah. How about a vibrant up and coming administration member such as VP or Secy of State who have never before run for President. Oh right.

    Granted Dems. leftist base is hurting them locally preventing a good national candidate, eg, see Texas & Florida Gov. races, but Obama’s policies have significantly contributed to lack of bench. So sad…

    Part of Obeyme & Mooch Antoinette’s pitch to push continued redistribution (ie: Communism).

    “Life’s too shtressful. Folks are facshed with all kinds of challenges. They are shtretched thin at work, their paychecksh don’t shtretch far enough, millions shtruggle every day jusht to get by. Treatment (for depression) isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of shtrength. That’s something that my husband believes shtrongly as president.” Let’s shee, I mean, see, Michelle, which one of your husband’s policies have helped? Paychecks that don’t stretch far enough should be taxed more?? At least we get taxpayer funded depression screening; now that’s bang for your buck! Enjoy your next vacation.

    Please, can someone tell me why all of Moochelles images look like she just smelt something bad, or ate something really sour? Is her life in the W.H. with Obozo that stinky?
