‘Use my story as an example’: Michelle Obama says education made her a ‘powerful weapon of change’

While attending the “African First Ladies Summit” today in Tanzania, the FLOTUS said she is a case in point illustrating the truth of this quote from Nelson Mandela (beginning at 1:50):

“Education is probably the most powerful weapon for change.”

The First Weaponized Lady of Change, or FWLoC, made clear that all should be inspired by her example:

“So there’s a large part of my initiative that’s really trying to get into the heads of these young people, and use my story as an example of the power of education. And I tell kids all across the country I want them to look at me not as the First Lady, but as one of them.”

Yes, kids, it’s true. With proper education you too can write crap like this.

    Possible caption… Michelle: “I really need some more up here.”

  • Junie3

    No, George Soros’ stolen billions are.

  • Greg Greenlee

    Common Core! A weapon for changing the smart kids into dumb ones!

    • ObamaFail

      More pro-abortion zealots preaching commie jargon while whining about racism when anyone speaks out against the Democrat overlords. We really don’t need that.

  • ObamaFail

    Seeing as how all she’s done is try to play school lunch dictator and go on vacation, I don’t see how she’s any kind of weapon. And if she’s a weapon, did Obama get a background check to marry her first?

  • Stephen L. Hall

    Narcissists of the world . . . follow her (and her husband’s) example.

  • Jd1367

    Just think of how much more powerful she could be if she could break free of the jail that is the White House

    • ObamaFail

      She gets too many vacations.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Because that’s what wealth is. It’s like pie handed out or stolen and the “rich” people took way too much because of their greed and now they need to share according to social justice guidelines.

        And of course you’ll need a fearsome “transformation team” to make sure everything is “fair” to move the country “forward” towards Utopia.

        Once the bloodsucking vampire conservatives stop blocking our “progress.”

        • ObamaFail

          The point of the picture is that Mrs. Someone Has to Give Up A Piece Of Their Pie is getting to enjoy lavish vacations on the taxpayer dime while the “sequester” is causing our troops who are putting their lives on the line for our country have had their hot meals cut off. This isn’t about wealth. It’s about the fact that Obama has used the sequester to make intentional cuts to try to prove a point, saying we have no money for our troops to have hot meals. Yet he can take his cow of a wife on a $100 million vacation to Africa. And she’s got another vacation lined up this month as well. The Obama’s need to vacation out of their own damn pockets.

  • Jeff McCabe

    Which school does one of to marry someone who will be elected to one office after another that are over his head? Hillary used her education similarly, but at least bill was qualified, if wrong.

  • NRPax

    But Michelle; if more people were educated, they wouldn’t vote for people like your husband.

    Hm. Maybe that is change I could believe in.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      She’s not talking about education. She’s using Newspeak. She’s talking about communist indoctrination.

  • Garth Haycock

    I think a dangerous weapon of change is more accurate.

    • Worship Dancer

      OR a dangerous weapon of DESTRUCTION.

    • Marvin Nelson

      Tell Bush that we have found the WMD that he was looking for.

  • Mike Lameyer

    ahahahahaha stick with Samsonite commercials.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Wow, you mean growing up in a household that was funded by the Richard J Daley Crook County Democratic machine had no effect?

  • Spinmamma

    First Lady of Self Absorption

  • digitalPimple

    Yes people, you too can be an obnoxious goon like her if you marry the right person. She did change one thing to her credit. She managed to lower the decency of the FLOTUS position.

  • PatrioticDissent

    Indoctrination is the weapon of leftists, not education.

    Man , the Obama’s are full of themselves.

    • Worship Dancer

      well they are full of SOMETHING

      Ask Orange Julius why Moochy had to surrender her law license? Kind of makes that three years of law school education meaningless, dontcha think?

  • Guest

    Is she Zira or Cornelius? I can never tell.

    • CatHerder

      Neither one. She was adopted by the Sasquatch tribal council and her Native American name translates to Wolf Ugly Woman.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Yeah, you’re a weapon that left me with nothing but “change” in my pocket.


    Just ask Antonio Gramsci and Gyorgy Lukacs

  • barry ocarter ll

    Affirmative Action made you a powerful weapon. Nothing in you or your husband’s personal experience prepared you to lead this great country. And it shows.

  • mhojai

    her “education” and married to mullah jugears…gave her an underserved platform

  • ceemack

    I’d say “look at me” is the heart of that quote.

  • The Duke of New York

    Oh please. Spreading your legs and marrying a guy who got lucky got you where you are. Otherwise you would be working at K Mart selling smoke detectors and Lava soap. What did I teach you? I can’t hear you!

  • blvp2145

    We need to save her from the White House, quick lets protest for Michelle to be free!

    • Adela Wagner

      HAHA brought to mind those “Free Katie” t-shirts from when she was married to Tom Cruise…..

      • blvp2145

        I would very much like to do this, it would be so funny. And the MSM would not understand or get the joke

        • Adela Wagner

          HAHA YES, a pic of the White House with bars on the door and windows.” Free Michelle from this hell hole of a prison”
          (with a chef)

          • blvp2145

            Perfect, Perfect! I would so do this if lived closer to DC and could find more people to help out on this project. It would cost a little bit for sings. But it may not have the effect we would want. Got any ideas to grab the attention of the MSM?

          • Adela Wagner

            If you can design it, you can submit it to an online printer of t-shirts, mugs, tote bags etc. Then you can submit advert on Amazon, twitter, teaparty sites, prepper sites etc. But you would have to be FAST, once the story gets past a week….it’s on to the next stupid thing he and/or she spouts. As far as the MSM, best you could do is approach someone that will be at a very public event and get them to wear one. Ala BET Awards with Jamie Foxx wearing a Trayvon one.

            You could send one to Jessie Waters, or Janine Turner, or maybe Gregg Gutfeld …there are more who might wear one to a public event.

          • blvp2145

            I like your thinking Adela. I hope some close to DC thinks of this and runes with it. It would work. And the group just needs to say we are standing up for a women right to be free from oppression.

  • LinTaylor

    I’m not sure if this makes her and Barack perfect for each other (a match made in the mirror store), or a horrible match (because they’re too busy focusing on themselves to care about the other).

  • Bill Board

    I just received an education on what slimy pigs do while they are in Africa…. they talk about themselves.

  • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

    It’s also an effective weapon to dumb the masses without them ever realizing it.

    Education can be a force for good or evil.

  • 3seven77

    Glad to see the link to MO’s Princeton thesis. More people should read it for themselves so they can see how truly uneducated the FLOTUS really is.

  • DrSamHerman

    And how powerful was she for the patients she tried to dump while at the University of Chicago Hospital? Perhaps she can enlighten them how she empowered them.

  • Nitsedy

    Michelle, it wasn’t an education. It was indoctrination. An education makes you humble.

  • Clete Torres

    Education does not equal intelligence.

    Our current first ‘lady’ embodies this perfectly.

  • radishthegreat

    She seems to have left out the part where she only got admitted to her fancy-pants prep school and Princeton because her brother could play basketball.

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    Communism/BLT/Marxism/Brainwashing 101.
    Remember her dissertation was on Black Separatist.
    Law licenses she revoked are in question by all.
    CommonCore is Bill Ayers/Bill Gates/State Farm Brainwashing

  • AZcommenter

    She’s funny. Her Ivy League education couldn’t even help her pass the bar exam on her first attempt (something most law graduates from state university law schools manage to do). And her education also couldn’t help her keep the one and only job she ever had practicing law — as a junior associate at Sidley & Austin, who dumped her sorry butt after just a couple of years b/c she couldn’t cut it as a lawyer. After that, she had to depend not on her education, but on her senator-husband’s corrupt political cronies (like slumlord Valerie Jarrett) to create 6-figure, make-work, political patronage jobs for her.

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    We’ll take Martha Washington over this one any day, and that would be a great day!

  • FaithColeridge33

    I’d love to know what’s going through Mrs Bushes mind right now LOL. Librarian over lawyer any day.

    • Kate

      The Bushes have shown remarkable restraint and grace to have to make so many appearances with the Obamas, who have publicly trashed them any chance they got.

      • FaithColeridge33

        I agree. I don’t know how they do it. I have too much of a temper. I would have cold cocked one of them by now. However, in that picture I do sense just a little kink in Laura’s armor. Just a enough.

    • neoface

      In case you don’t know both of the Obamas’ had to surrender their law license for an unlawful act. So michelle is no longer a lawyer.

  • waterytart

    Education, does not equal intelligence. Case in point, a smart person who considers herself a weapon for change, does not tell her hairstylist, “Make me look like Moe”.

  • Maxx

    What “change” she foolishly claims to have enacted, will be soon forgotten within three minutes of her husband climbing into the Presidential helo for one last ceremonial ride off the White House lawn. What a narcissistic chest thumper.

    One man is the President. The first lady ain’t “Mrs. President.”

  • notenoughtime

    Nice to know but her and her husband’s party tend to hold back those the claim to look out for by keeping them in educational systems that are poor at best. In keeping with her logic, education is a powerful weapon of change for some but not for all!

  • ernst1776

    Hey Michelle… I thought it was the Communist Party USA that made you a ‘Powerful weapon of change”/

  • FilleGitane

    This is funny, considering this woman can’t write a cogent sentence. Check out her senior thesis. It looks like it was written by a moron. Oh right, it was.http://obamaprincetonthesis.wordpress.com/

    • neoface

      All I got out of it was blah, blah, blah, it sounds like a paper written by a GT over achiever high school senior. I heard that once you get in one of these Ivy league schools its like being in the medical school, they don’t let you fail, unless you decided to drop out. I could be wrong.

  • © Sponge

    Well, it certainly made her and her husband WMD’s (weapons of massive disaster).

    Thanks for killing the American Dream.

    Michelle Obama says indoctrination made her a ‘powerful weapon of change’


    • jebjr

      That’s what her pre-school did for her.

  • Dane Gunderson

    ‘Use my story as an example’: Michelle Obama says education made her a ‘powerful weapon of change’ from prison? From marrying that guy like Hillary did?

  • neoface

    From I’ve read, Moocow never used her education besides riding everyone’s coattail. Jesse Jackson was her first free ride as he got her a job using the race card, then she rode Jerret’s coattail all the way to the White house. I’m certain Jerret’s position was her payback. People who worked with her had said that she was the laziest person they have ever worked with, but she can’t be touched because of her connections. I guess she lies just like Obama.

    • jebjr

      “…she can’t be touched because of her connections”. Unfortunately, sounds like Hillary to me.

  • Axelgreaser

    USE HER STORY AS AN EXAMPLE OF MONUMENTAL ERROR IN NATIONAL JUDGEMENT! You know you’re ‘powerful’ when you and your husband can use AF1 to fly you across the ‘schtreet’ to pick up a double-dip Rocky Road or flit off to Africa at a cost of $100 million dollars billed to the fools that anointed you ‘royalty’ not once, but an incredible, unbelievable two, (count ’em) TWO TIMES! You know you’re powerful when you have the IRS and NSA waiting for you to direct their next move, no matter how egregious, covert or odious to the people.

  • David

    Hilarious. This cow will be forgotten two weeks after Obama leaves office.

    The temerity of these people is astounding. No one knows where this person came from. It,s a big secret! Smart people look at this pair and run the other direction!

  • dwsmokin

    While I agree with the assertion the First Lady made, I have to wonder-why go to Tanzania to make it? When graduation rates, test scores, and dropout rates for blacks in cities like Chicago, or Detroit, or LA, are where they are, wouldn’t it be more appropriate to give this speech in those AMERICAN cities? Of course, that would be a local call-not a taxpayer funded vacation.

  • Dan L

    Geez she’s as much or more of a narcissistic attention who’re as Barry. Another as example that people who constantly demand attention and respect rarely deserve it.

  • ObamaFail

    It’s cold hard facts idiot. Moochelle had her license revoked.

  • FaithColeridge33

    No Sweetie. That’s your leftist projection always wanting to see the worst in everyone because you are so disappointed in yourself.
