Just Like You...

Michael Medved has a great piece on the contradictions of the Democratic message these days. It's a must read...

I wanted to talk about one piece of it, though. Michael says:

She made similar observations about her husband, the presidential candidate: “His family was so much like mine. He was raised by grandparents who were working class folks just like my parents, and by a single mother who struggled to pay the bills just like we did. Like my family, they scrimped and saved so that he could have opportunities they never had themselves.” [emphasis added]
So the highlighted portion of the text caught my attention on Monday night when she said it. It makes no sense:

Michelle:
  • Raised in a 2-parent home
  • Dad did honest work to support the family
  • Mom stayed home and raised the kids
Obama:
  • Raised in a single-parent home
  • Mother worked to pay the bills
  • Grandmother stayed home and raised him
Someone please explain to me exactly how his family is "just like" hers?

By presenting such information as "fact" they are forcing the Democratic follower into an untenable mental position... where eventually they simply surrender to the poor logic, stop processing and just pull a lever on election day.
