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.
