Mrs Obama stole the show at the Democratic National Convention when she delivered a powerful speech laden with emotions. She spoke of the American Dream and avoided getting dirty with the opponent’s constant insults, tongue lashing and hate speeches.
Mrs Obama spoke for over 10 minutes and below are some excerpts:
“The hateful language… from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country.”
“Don’t stoop to their level. Our motto is, when they go low, we go high.”
“When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level”.
“We urge them [our daughters] to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith”.
“Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great”
“Issues facing a president “cannot be boiled down to 140 characters”
“Ideal president can’t have a thin skin or a tendency to lash out”.
As usual the American Sweetheart was given a standing ovation for her very inspiring and authentic speech.
