First Lady Michelle Obama cited "remarkable progress" on the economy during a speech for a small crowd of high-profile Hollywood names in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening.

"In the last three years, we've worked hard to get out of this mess and we've made some remarkable progress," the first lady told a group of about 135 supporters at a private campaign event for her husband. She listed President Obama's accomplishments on healthcare reform, the removal of troops from Iraq and the repeal of "Don't ask, don't tell" among other items on the list of "promises kept" touted by Obama's reelection campaign.

"We know there are people still suffering and there is a long road left to travel," she continued, citing unfinished work as another reason to reelect Obama.

According to pool reports, the Beverly Hills event included some high-profile names from Hollywood, such as top Obama donors Jeffrey Katzenberg and Harvey Weinstein. Singer-songwriter Joshua Radin performed before Obama spoke. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, music industry representatives Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy and Jerry Ross, film producer Steve Bing, Rob and Michele Reiner and Will Ferrell's wife, Vivica, were also in attendance.

"You’re here because you know that we stand at a fundamental crossroads for our country," Michelle Obama told them. "You’re here because you know that in less than a year from now, we are going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come."

Not in the least because she knows the media will dutifully report what she says as fact and not give it one second of critical thought.

Wow, nice oxymoron - media + critical thought

First lady Michelle Obama cites 'remarkable progress' on the economyWell, she IS the FLATUS. That means she is automatically an expert on the economy and anything else she speaks of.:rolleyes:

As for the "remarkable progress?" Progress can be backwards much like deceleration is actually acceleration. Being the root word of "progressive," we are all intimately familiar with its backwardness.:cool:

Remarkable, yes, but not in a good way.

But they're not lying. The more the economy goes in the toilet, the better it is for them.

Always remember that "fair" to a Liberal is everyone being equally miserable.

What is her criterion for "remarkable progress"?? I bet Hugo Chavez believes the Venezuelan economy has shown "remarkable progress" since he came to office

Very similar. I looked up the word after I saw FLOTUS and a pic of her large derriere. FLATUS seems to fit her better, especially after her hypocritical crusade against prohibited food for us PEONS that she and her Marxist gigolo can eat freely.

"You’re here because you know that in less than a year from now, we are going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come." You have no idea.

At a certain stage in delusion you start believing your own lies are true.

Right now it would appear to be the fact that she can do more push-ups than Ellen DeGeneres. http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r101/Bithiah_photo/Smilies/Girl%20Smilies/smilie_girl_303.gif
