First Lady: GOP Will Limit Free Speech, Religion

Well, the first linebacker is — ah, First Lady is on the campaign trail. Where was she? It’s from a website White House Dossier. “In a chilling appraisal of President Obama’s Republican opposition, First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion. Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court. She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying, ‘that’s what’s at stake’ in the election,” and there’s a “White House transcript: ‘Let’s not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices and for the first time in history, our daughters — and our sons — watched three women take their seats on our nation’s highest court.

“‘But more importantly, let’s not forget the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose. That is what’s at stake here.'” This is what you get when you can’t run on your husband’s economic record. This is what happens when you can’t run on your husband’s achievements because there aren’t any. This is what you get: “Republicans want dirty air. Republicans want dirty water. Republicans want fewer people alive,” and now, “Republicans don’t want you to be able to speak, and the Republicans don’t want you to be able to practice your religion.” This is what they have. This is what they’re worth. This is all they’ve got. They are morally bankrupt.
