You're Half Right, Michelle

This from Michelle Obama in her speech the other night seems so right:

"For Barack, success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the differences you make in people’s lives.”

Two points, though:

1) How do we measure that "difference" her husband has made in peoples' lives?  Answer: How about we ask his brother:


2) How much countenance should we give to the claim that a man who has chosen to not lift a finger to help his own brother has, at the same time, chosen to help millions of total strangers with money that doesn't belong to him?  I can be real magnanimous too with other people's cash.

Obama has "made a difference" for certain.  And millions of Americans are the poorer for it.

Michelle Obama got this right: "Success is ... about the differences you make in people’s lives."

So many of our fellow citizens have lives so different from what they were a few short years ago.

Four more years of his compassion?  Where will those differences take us?
