Call me a sap, but I got a little teary-eyed listening to Michelle Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention. No matter your politics, it’s refreshing to hear a woman speak so obviously from her heart -- and as a mother first and foremost. If you missed it, you can listen to her speech here.
Whoever we elect in November, I hope they can muster the political courage to return to a philosophy of pay-as-you-go government – so that we can begin to climb out of our national debt and stop expecting our children, who are too young to have a say, to carry the burden of our massive debts – of our reckless adventures in spending without taxing - when they are our age. As mothers, we owe that much to our children I think.
