Has Michelle gone off her rocker?
While giving a speech in Fort Campbell, KY, First Lady Michelle Obama touched on the topic of veterans finding work after leaving their duties with the military. In her speech, she mentioned that before hitting the campaign trail with Barack, she didn’t have a clue about what life in the military is really like.
She continued by contrasting her experiences campaigning with that of Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill, who are Blue Star parents.
Taking it one step further, Michelle went on to compare her life campaigning with a presidential candidate to that of a military wife.
“Dealing with everything that I was dealing with—a spouse traveling, a job, kids– we didn’t deal with multiple moves, but I learned about the challenges that happen when you move from base to base to base,” Michelle said, “The way your kids have to adjust on a dime. And doing it knowing that the person you love is in harm’s way. And those stories moved me in a way that I didn’t expect.”
