Michelle Obama's Spectacular Speech

Take that, Mitt Romney!!!

"When you walk through that door of opportunity, you do not reach back to slam it shut"

. . .  "You see, even though back (when) Barack was a senator and a presidential candidate, to me, he was still the guy who'd picked me up for our dates in a car that was so rusted out, I could actually see the pavement going by in a hole in the passenger side door. He was the guy whose proudest possession was a coffee table he'd found in a dumpster, and whose only pair of decent shoes was half a size too small."

"Well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are. No, it reveals who you are."

"Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it, and he wants everyone in this country to have the same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we're from, or what we look like, or who we love."
